Feedback sought on Ka¯piti council fees
Residents can have their say on how fees should be set to cover the costs of implementing recent amendments to the Resource Management Act locally.
Ka¯piti Coast District Council’s regulatory services group manager, Kevin Currie, says public input on the fees proposed for these new activities is essential to establish a fair schedule.
‘‘We need to implement a fee schedule to help recover some of the costs that the council is incurring through RMA requirements for processing applications because these are categories that have been added to the existing schedule of fees.’’
Changes to the Act include boundary ‘deemed permitted’ activities, marginal/temporary breaches, and the fast track process. Consultation closes on November 2. Further information and submission forms are available at kapiticoast.govt.nz
