Who decides on notification?

Councils decide whether or not a resource consent application will be notified. The decision on notification must be made within 20 working days of a resource consent being lodged (or 10 working days for a fast-track application). If the council decides to notify the application, then notification must be undertaken within this same period. 803

The decision of a council is final and cannot be appealed to the Environment Court. It can only be challenged by judicial review in the High Court.

  1. Section 95 Resource Management Act 1991
