Fees - Resource Consents

Fee Table: Resource Consents

Note:

Information about Council's invoicing policy is given to clients when their application is acknowledged as accepted (or otherwise). Applicants should also refer to the Marlborough District Council Charging Policy - Resource Management Act, for an explanation as to the structure of costs for a resource consent application.

Council will charge interest on overdue invoices at 15% per annum from the date of issue to the date of payment. In the event of non-payment the applicant and/or the agent will be liable for all legal and other costs of recovery.

The fixed initial application fees listed in the schedule are minimum charges for the resource consent applications and are charges “fixed” under Section 36 (1) of the Resource Management Act 1991 (they are therefore not subject to objection rights). All consent processing charges, which exceed the fixed initial application fee are considered to be additional charges pursuant to Section 36 (3) of the Resource Management Act 1991 and these may be charged on a monthly basis or invoiced at the end of the consenting process.

The final cost of processing each resource consent application will be based on actual and reasonable costs, and will include the charging of staff time at the rates in the schedule of fees for staff hourly processing rates and disbursements. Where charges are lower than the original application fee paid a refund will be made. Failure to pay at any stage will result in Council stopping the process until the charges are paid.
