Council will either accept or reject your application within 10 working days.
You need to be aware that this does not mean your consent has been approved or rejected. If your consent has been accepted for processing, it will move on to the next step. If your consent has been rejected, it means you have not included the information required in your application. You will have to provide the additional information requested by the Council and submit a new application.
If the Council requests further information regarding your application we will write a letter to you outlining the additional information we need. You must respond to us within 15 working days with what you intend to do. If you agree to provide the information, the Council will work with you to set a reasonable date by which the information needs to be received. Note: If you receive a request from the Council for further information, the working days stop until you provide a response.
A decision on whether or not your resource consent application will be notified will be made within 20 working days (10 working days for a fast-track application).
Within 20 working days (10 working days for a fast-track application) we will make a decision on your application (which can be appealed). If your application requires public or limited notification, the time frame can be at least three to four months.
