Plan and Build

Notification: The statutory processing clock stops over the Christmas and New Year period for both resource consents and building consents. 
Clocks stop period: 20 December 2022 to 10 January 2023 (inclusive).
The days within this period are excluded from the counted statutory processing days.

Good to know: You may need to apply for both a building consent and a resource consent. Despite having a building consent, you may not be able to build without a resource consent and vice versa. Applications must be lodged separately and are considered under different legislation.
