Resource consent conditions and monitoringWhakaaetanga rawa taiao: Ngā herenga me ngā aroturukitanga

We monitor your site to check if you are complying with the conditions for your resource consent.

Compliance Officers monitor your resource consent and make sure you are complying with the conditions and any other relevant regulations.

Resource consent conditions

If we grant your consent, there will be conditions you need to comply with. We will monitor your site to make sure you comply with those conditions.

To comply with resource consent conditions you may need to:

  • notify us when works start
  • get signed approval from our staff if an aspect of your consent requires it
  • check your resource consent conditions for any limits on what you can do.

All of this information is detailed in your consent conditions.

What we monitor

We monitor:

Monitoring conditions

The monitoring of your resource consent conditions may involve:

  • supplying records or reports to demonstrate compliance with the conditions (e.g. a construction management plan),
  • bulk earthworks inspections by consultants.

Frequency of site inspections

We monitor high and medium risk sites/activities more frequently. We also monitor sites more if there is a history of non-compliance.

Consent fees

We charge fees for resource consent monitoring at an hourly rate. The fees vary according to the different skills and technical knowledge required from our staff. For detailed information, see our fees and charges schedule under the Resource Consents, Land Development and Subdivision drop-down menu.

Consent breaches

If you do not meet the conditions of a resource consent our first approach is to work with you to find a solution on how to rectify any breaches.

We may also take a variety of steps, including issuing:

  • a formal warning
  • an abatement notice (an official notice requiring you to follow a specific course of action)
  • an environmental infringement notice
  • an enforcement order (court-backed order)

Severe breaches of the conditions of a resource consent can result in prosecution and a fine imposed by the courts.

When you have finished your project

If you have finished the works associated with your resource consent check all conditions have been met and advise Council’s compliance officers accordingly.

Once the compliance officer is satisfied your works are compliant with the resource consent conditions, they will close the consent. You will then receive a Letter of Completion and any final invoices.

If you have any questions you can:
