One of our responsibilities is to make sure our built and natural environments are protected or enhanced by the work people are doing.
We will investigate cases where this work breaches the Resource Management Act and District Plan.
Examples of breaches include:
- building works taking place without the required resource consent
- commercial activity taking place without resource consent
- unauthorised signage.
Note that commercial activities, structure setback, signage and many other provisions in the District Plan differ, depending on the zone of the land.
You can report a potential planning non-compliance on the link below. Please be advised, something which is not compliant in one zone, may be compliant in another and vice-versa.
