Will I need a resource consent?

Sometimes a resource consent, under the Resource Management Act 1991, will also be required.

For example if the height of your proposed building exceeds prescribed limits or if the use of the building is non-complying for the zone the building is to be located in.

There is a separate process and forms for applying for a resource consent. It is important to understand that the project will not be allowed to commence if a resource consent is required. Click on the links below.
