Do you need a building consent?
People who need a resource consent often need a building consent too. If you’re not sure, please get in touch – we’ll talk through your proposal, let you know whether you need one and guide you through the next steps.
Are you planning to remove, prune or work near trees?
It’s important that you get in touch before you remove, prune or carry out construction work near any tree – you may need a resource consent.
A tree may be protected because it’s:
- listed as a scheduled tree in the District Plan
- protected as part of a condition on an existing resource consent
- protected by a covenant or consent notice on the Certificate of Title.
Do you want to protect commercially sensitive information?
Once you’ve lodged your application it becomes public information and we can provide copies to anyone who asks for them. However, you can ask us to keep commercially sensitive material private.
