Planning fees and charges information
All fees are deposits unless otherwise stated. All deposits are non-refundable. An assessment of total fees will be made based on actual cost (including any specialist reviews by internal staff (based on the hourly rates specified), external experts/specialists or external consultants (processing)).
The deposit will be deducted from the actual cost to determine if there are additional charges to pay and will be invoiced to the applicant in accordance with section 36(3) of the RMA.
All fees and hourly rates are inclusive of GST.
Under Section 36AA of the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA) a default discount policy will apply where a resource consent application is not processed within the timeframe(s) set out in the RMA, and the responsibility for the delay rests with Council.
All fees apply to applications made for resource consent for a qualifying development in an approved special housing area.
No fees are payable for non-notified, restricted discretionary land use consent applications for protected trees made under Chapter 6 of the City Plan.
