A pre-application meeting is an opportunity to discuss your proposal with our staff before you lodge a resource consent application.
We offer three types of pre-application meetings, each with a different focus.
- initial concept - discuss development proposals at the early concept stage
- technical review - discuss the technical issues associated with a proposed resource consent application
- pre-lodgement - a pre-lodgement check of your proposed consent for completeness prior to lodgement of the application.
You are entitled to one free pre-application meeting which can be from any one of the three types. We cover costs for arranging the meeting and staff time to attend it. If any follow up work is required, such as a technical assessment we will charge the actual and reasonable cost of this work.
Any information offered during the pre-application process does not affect the normal resource consent assessment and decision making process.
