Information requirements for National Environmental Standards permitted activities
Information you need to send to us
The information we require on National Environmental Standards (NES) permitted activities and the time frame for when you can start your proposal, depends on the activity you are undertaking.
Examples of activity types that may be permitted and include specific information requirements are:
When and how to provide us with information
NES permitted activities have different time frames and requirements for notification.
NES for freshwater and plantation forestry, both contain information requirements that must be submitted to us before your proposed activity can start.
See the relevant page to download the correct notification form and find out more about when you need to contact us.
When a permitted activity also needs a resource consent
An activity may be permitted under a NES, but still require a
resource consent under the Auckland Unitary Plan (Operative in Part) 2016.
When you check your compliance with the relevant regulatory conditions, ensure you refer to NES regulations, definitions and standards.
There is no other change to the normal
resource consent application process.
