Under the Resource Management Act 1991, councils are required to prepare a District Plan. The District Plan includes objectives, policies and rules that manage the adverse effects of activities on the environment with a focus on land use and subdivision activities. This is where we come in.
Determining how the District Plan affects your proposal can be complex and confusing. You can read your Council's District Plan below:
We can prepare the resource consent application on your behalf and will work with you and the council to guarantee you get the most appropriate and reasonable consent possible.
We have many years of experience working with the New Plymouth, Stratford and South Taranaki councils and interpreting their District Plan rules, as well as working under the Resource Management Act. We will develop a thorough understanding of your activity and will provide a professional assessment of what consents you may require.
Land Use Consents can be required for many different reasons. Earthworks, works within or near a stream, water discharge permits, or a non-complying building location. Some subdivisions may require more than one Land Use Consent.
Land development that involves environmental effects related to air, water and soil may require a Regional Council consent in addition to a Land Use Consent. Our planning team have the relevant expertise and experience to deal with regional planning matters.
A Resource Consent to subdivide may be conditional upon a Building Consent for drainage works or for structures such as retaining walls that are part of the development.
