Find out about notified resource consents and the processes for objecting or attending a hearing.

When a resource consent application is notified, other people will have an opportunity to have their say on your project. It also means the processing time frame will be longer and the costs will be higher.

When we publicly notify a resource consent application

If your project is likely to have adverse effects on the environment or people, we will:

  • notify those directly affected (limited notification), or
  • notify the public generally (public notification).

Limited notification

If your proposal will have an adverse effect on people to an extent where a planner would deem them 'affected parties', we must notify those people unless:

Affected people can make a submission supporting or opposing your application within 20 working days of being notified.


Track the progress of your consent application by contacting our duty planner on 06 835 7579 with your resource consent number.

Public notification

We may determine that the adverse effects of your resource consent warrant public notification. If so, a public notice will appear in newspapers and in the notified applications open for submission section of this website.

We will also directly notify any people we consider adversely affected and send information to them on how to make a submission.

Anyone can make a submission supporting or opposing an application within 20 working days.

What happens if we receive submissions

If we receive submissions against your proposal and people have indicated that they want to speak about their submission, we will hold a hearing. Read more about resource consent hearings here.
