We recover costs for processing applications for resource consents based on the specified hourly rate of the planners and specialists involved.
Lodgement Fee amounts you will need to pay
You must include the relevant lodgement fee with your resource consent application, to cover initial application processing costs.
If the actual cost is less than the lodgement amount, we will refund the difference.
If the actual cost exceeds the lodgement amount, which happens in most cases, we will invoice you for the additional costs.
Tip: Submit all the required information with your consent application to avoid further information requests that will increase the processing costs.
