Under the Resource Management Act 1991, the Council is required to assess any development, subdivision or proposed use of a site against the requirements of the Mackenzie District Plan. The District Plan contains rules relating to different types of activities in different parts of the District. Anything which is not considered to be a permitted activity by the District Plan requires resource consent.
Land Use Consent is required to use land, including the surface of water, in a way that is not permitted as of right under the District Plan.
Subdivision Consent is required where any person wishes to sell part of the land contained in an allotment or lease part of the land for a period of 35 years or more (including rights of renewal) unless expressly allowed by a rule in a District Plan. It should be specified whether the subdivision is for fee simple, cross-lease, lease of land or unit title.
The rules relating to a particular site will depend on what zone the site is within. The rules for each zone can be found in the District Plan.
Examples of activities which may require resource consent are:
- Building a residential building close to a property boundary
- A multi unit accommodation complex
- Setting up a home based business
- Subdividing any property
You, or a representative, must complete the Councils Land Use Application Form or Subdivision Application Form and submit it to the Councils planning department along with all other information required by the Council.
A deposit must be paid with the application. This varies according to the type of activity you are applying for and can be found in the Councils Resource Management Fees and Charges Schedule. Further charges may be incurred during processing, which are charged after processing is completed.
