Pre-application guidance

Applying for resource consent? Book a free guidance meeting with us first to check you've got everything you need.

If you’re planning to build, develop or subdivide you may need different permits or consents.

What you’ll need depends on your plans. We recommend booking a pre-application guidance meeting with us before you submit your application. We can provide advice and guidance on your application that can help make the process easier.

When you book your meeting, please make sure:

  • You attach any relevant documents, including plans and drawings. The more information you provide, the more guidance we can provide.
  • Your attachments are in PDF format, and aren’t password protected or locked. The file name must include the name of the applicant.
