Resource consent applications can be ‘non-notified’, ‘limited notified’ or ‘fully notified’.
- Non-notified – we approve your application because either there are no effects or the effects are minor, and where relevant you've got written approval from the affected parties
- Limited notified – we write to any affected parties from whom you don’t have written approval and invite them to make submissions on your application. They have 20 working days from the day they receive our letter to make a submission
- Fully notified – we consider that the effects of your proposal are significant enough to invite the wider public to make submissions. This can result in a hearing.
