Feed­back sought on Ka¯piti coun­cil fees

Kapiti Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

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
