We are currently receiving a large volume of applications that cannot be accepted by our Planning Technician Team. Please take the time to familiarise yourself with the following requirements to ensure your application is not returned:
Please ensure that an Application Form is completed when lodging all Resource Consent Applications, including s223/s224 Certification Applications. This is imperative to ensure that the correct applicant’s details are entered for each application and for financial purposes. Applicant’s details need to include their own correct and current postal address, email address and phone numbers. The applicant’s details cannot be care of the agent.
File size for uploading
Each document lodged must be no larger than 10MB. A document can be easily resized through PDF software. This is essential particularly when we have to add a document to our Website. Documents larger than 10MB are more troublesome to deal with, both for us here at council and anyone from the community trying to load down a document larger than this.
Break up application documents
When submitting an application, please separate the application documents. The AEE and each appendix need be lodged as individual documents. This will allow for efficient document management, reducing time and cost being added to an application.
Maximum size plans A3
Please ensure that all applications with plans/drawings/photos have pages no larger than A3. Documents larger than A3 cannot be downloaded.
Record of Title
Please remember that a Record of Title cannot be older than 3 months, and must include the title plan.
Processing of your application will not begin until the correct fee is paid. Please refer to the Fees and Charges
listed on our website and ensure that you lodge your application with the correct fee at the time of lodging to prevent any unnecessary delays.
A contact number is required to lodge an application. A contact number is a council reference attributed to a council customer (including rate payer, dog owner etc.). Where the applicant does not have a ‘contact number’ one can be requested through the contact centre (Ph: 07 577 7000 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If any of the above points are not addressed when submitting an application, the application will not be accepted
, and we will ask that you update/amend and re-lodge the application. Only then will we input the application details into our system.
If you have any questions regarding the lodgement of applications, please contact our Planning Technician Team at email@example.com
