Monitoring of Land Use ConsentsUnits2018/2019
There shall be a charge for every land use consent (which will be refunded if consent is refused) relating to the monitoring and associated administration of the consent (Resource Management Act section 36(1)(c)).
There are two levels of monitoring fees:
A. To monitor progress with giving effects to the consent and compliance with consent conditions for minor resource consents - minor waivers e.g. yard encroachments. (This charge is specifically aimed at homeowners making small-scale alterations where few if any conditions are imposed.) Fixed Initial Deposit Charge $195.00
B. To monitor progress with giving effect to the consent and compliance with consent conditions for all other resource consents Fixed Initial Deposit Charge $350.00
NB: For larger applications that have numerous conditions or require specialist input such as engineers or other specialists for auditing expert reports this fee will be increased to cover these additional costs.
If adverse effects arise from the development, or breaches of conditions are continuing, or repeated, and Council officers determine that more site visits are required, a per visit charge applies. Additional Charge $165.00
NB: Any additional charges of Council monitoring officers will be charged at $110 per hour. Any additional charges for specialist time in connection with monitoring and compliance of conditions of the resource consent will be charged at the relevant hourly rate or the actual cost to cover these additional costs.
