Consulting with Council’s Asset Managers and Pre Application Service
Does your proposal involve:
- Vesting land as reserve in Council?
- Use of a Council reserve for a temporary event?
- Use of a Council reserve for vehicular access to your property?
- Upgrading of Council’s reticulated water or wastewater infrastructure?
- Upgrading of Council’s road network?
- Building within the setback from a Council road?
In these circumstances, early consultation with Council’s Asset Managers from our Waters, Roading, Open Spaces or Property Teams is important. These teams need time and information to consider your proposal before any subdivision or
land use consent is lodged.
Please remember if you have a complicated proposal that you need to discuss with Council our pre-application service is also available.
The pre-application service is particularly useful in ensuring that you provide all the information you need with your resource consent application.
Changes to fees and charges
On 1 July Council will be implementing the second year’s fees and charges as stated in Council’s Fees and charges booklet.
These will come into effect on 1 July 2019. Here is some important information you need to know:
A final reconciliation will be carried out on all applications at time of final billing. When this is done for subdivision consents the appropriate 223 Certificate charge will be applied and for Land use consents the appropriate monitoring charge will
be added. These charges need to be paid on the final account. Prior to signing a 224 certificate all processing costs will be required to be paid along with any applicable Development Contributions.
t will provide an opportunity to discuss your application with a Council planner and engineer, and possibly other departments of Council depending on the nature of your proposal.
Identifying up front what you need to gather in relation to this will help avoid possible delays in obtaining missing information further down the track.
