Resource Consents

A resource consent from TCDC is a written approval for you to carry out an activity on a particular site that is not ‘Permitted’ by the District Plan. Activities that are not permitted may have adverse effects upon the environment and/or on people.

The Resource Management Act, the District Plan, National Policy Statements and National Environmental Standards provide the planning framework for resource consents. These outline what can be undertaken as a permitted activity, what activities you need resource consent for, and how applications for resource consents are assessed.
