Applying for a resource consent

The applicant for a resource consent does not need to be the owner of land, or to have any interest in the land, in order to apply for a consent. 789  This means purchasers of land can apply for resource consents for land which they are considering purchasing.

If you wish to apply for a resource consent it will be important to identify what resource consents you require, to develop a good relationship with the consent authority and to effectively consult (where appropriate) with any affected parties. In the case of more complicated applications you may need to engage the services of one or more resource management consultants to assist in the preparation of your application.
