Forms for resource consents and other resource management applications.

Over the last 18 months, we have received a record number of consent applications which has caused a delay in our processing timeframes. Unfortunately, many applications are still not being processed within the statutory timeframe. 

The current allocation timeframe is updated weekly on our resource consents page.

What you can do to help

  • Please allow more time than normal to obtain resource consent.
  • Ensure that your application is complete and includes all the necessary plans and supporting information. This will minimise the need for us to request further information.
  • If you’re unsure about what you need to provide, check with our Duty Planner.
  • Consider engaging a planning consultant or resource management lawyer to prepare your application for you. Well-prepared information is usually quicker to process.

We sincerely apologise for the delays. Please email if you have any concerns.
