Keep us informed
You need to let us know if you change aspects of the work that is consented.
Changes to consented activity
If the consented activity changes, for example the extent of earthworks required, or the landscaping, you must notify us in writing using the appropriate form.
We cannot make changes to your legal consent document without an application from you, even if you have previously discussed the change with our staff.
To make a change, you need to submit a written application.
Let us know if things go wrong
It is also important to keep us informed if anything goes wrong. We can help you resolve your problem faster, safer and with less stress.
By keeping us informed, we can help with any concerns that the wider public may also have.
Resource consent changes
Apply to change or cancel conditions of your resource consent
You can apply for a change or cancellation of a condition of your consent, except for a condition limiting the
duration of the consent.
We only accept online applications for changes to resource consents. If you are unable to apply digitally, visit one of our
for assistance in making your online application.
If there is no way to provide digital copies of your plans or documents, visit one of our
service centres. Our staff will accept your documents for an additional charge. The charge covers costs involved with us scanning your documents into our digital consent system.
Call us on 09 301 0101 to speak with our building and planning help desk if you have questions regarding your application.
