The Council and Environment Canterbury have worked together to develop a streamlined land repair consent process to help residents carry out land repairs.
Various Resource Management Act rules and processes have been streamlined for businesses and residents relocating to temporary accommodation.
Building and earthworks on contaminated land (HAIL land) may require resource consent from the Council or Environment Canterbury or both.
Information for contractors, PMOs, and others who need to apply for multiple, similar resource consents.
The rules promote infill housing and intensification as a way of quickly increasing the availability of residential accommodation, without changing the overall character of residential areas.
