Proposed additional fees and charges for Planning Services

Council is proposing to set some new fees for additional planning services. We invite your feedback by Friday 1 December.

As a result of recent changes to the Resource Management Act 1991 the Council is able to consider applications for boundary activities and for marginal/temporary breaches and exempt them from needing resource consent. The changes also enable an applicant or consent holder to request objections for certain decisions being considered by an independent commissioner.

We are proposing to set fees and charges to cover the cost of processing applications and/or reviewing decisions using commissioners.

A copy of the Statement of Proposal including the schedule of proposed fees and charges can be downloaded below.

If you have any questions, please contact Simon Mori, Head of Planning Services on telephone 06 356 8199.

The deadline for submissions is 5pm on Friday 1 December 2017. Submissions must be in writing and may be delivered, posted or emailed to:

The Governance and Support Team Leader
City Corporate Unit
Palmerston North City Council
Private Bag 11-034
Palmerston North 4442


All submissions received will be considered. Submissions should include the name and address of the person making the submission, including a daytime telephone contact number, and also advise if they wish to speak about their submission to a meeting of Councillors.
