CON­SENT MEETINGS

Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Auck­land Coun­cil is en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to de­velop bet­ter con­sent ap­pli­ca­tions through preap­pli­ca­tion meetings to help iron out a lot of is­sues and give peo­ple clar­ity on what in­for­ma­tion coun­cil needs in the con­sent ap­pli­ca­tion and helps them save time and money. Re­source con­sents gen­eral man­ager Ian Small­burn said lots of ap­pli­cants don’t pro­vide the nec­es­sary in­for­ma­tion in con­sent ap­pli­ca­tions, which causes de­lays in the pro­cess­ing. The coun­cil of­fers an ini­tial free 15-minute meet­ing to ask ques­tions about your project and what con­sents and per­mits may be re­quired. If needed, a pre-ap­pli­ca­tion meet­ing can then be booked cost­ing $287 for a stan­dard pro­posal. More com­plex pro­pos­als re­quire a $287 de­posit with fur­ther costs pos­si­ble.
