Step 1: YOU

What you need to know

Plans change, and you may want to make changes to or cancel conditions on your resource consent (under section 127 of the Resource Management Act).

Changes to an existing consent

If your resource consent has already been granted, you’ll need to complete an application form and pay a fee. It’s a similar process to getting the resource consent in the first place but the focus is on the changes.

Apply to change or cancel conditions of a resource consent

To apply to change or cancel the conditions of your resource consent, you must provide:

  • plans that clearly show the changes proposed
  • an Assessment of Environmental Effects relating to the change
  • written approval of anyone considered affected by the change.

Note: If your application was publicly notified, contact Council to discuss the requirements for written approval.

If your consent application is being processed, contact our Planning team to discuss your proposed changes.
