Deadlines are now in place for building and resource consents and LIM applications if they are required before Christmas.
If you wish to receive building and/or resource consents before Christmas, all documentation must be submitted to the Council no later than Thursday 23 November 2017. This will allow for consents to be issued before we close for the holiday period at 12 noon on Friday 22 December 2017.
Applications for building and resource consents made after Thursday 23 November 2017 may not be approved before the holiday period.
The statutory 20 working day processing time frame for building and resource consents will be suspended from 20 December 2017 to 10 January 2018 inclusive.
If you require a LIM report before Christmas, your completed application form and payment must reach us no later than Wednesday 6 December 2017. Applications made after Wednesday 6 December 2017 may not be processed before the Council closes for the holidays. We are currently unable to accept urgent LIM applications.
The statutory 10 working day processing time frame for LIM applications will be suspended from 20 December 2017 to 10 January 2018 inclusive.
The Council will re-open at 8.00am on Wednesday 3 January 2018.
