Changes to be aware of
We now require hard wiring to wireless telecommunications in Residential Zones.
In the Rural Zone, we are placing a consent notice warning to future landowners to advise them that the Lot is reliant on a wireless provider for telecommunications, if a hard wire option is not available. Therefore the landowner should communicate with
the wireless provider to ensure adequate capacity in the network for the location.
What’s changed? Previously we did not require consent notices if the wireless option was undertaken.
Below is an example of the new consent notice:
Consent Notice Conditions – Only for consent notices relating to Wireless telecommunications
(1) If hardwire telecommunications supply reticulation is not installed to the boundary of Lot/s x, the following condition shall be complied with on an ongoing basis and shall therefore be the subject of a consent notice registered against the relevant title(s) in accordance with section 221 of the Resource Management Act 1991:
(a) No underground hardwire telecommunications supply reticulation is available to the boundary of Lot/s x, as confirmation was obtained from a telecommunications provider advising that provision for a wireless telecommunication connection is available to Lot/s x.
Details of the wireless services confirmation to Lot/s x are available within the application file SUBxxxx/xx held at Council’s offices.
Consent notices shall be prepared by Waikato District Council’s solicitor. Please request your consent notice be prepared prior to requesting 224 approval.
