The information you have provided on this form is required so that your application can be processed under the Resource

Section 36 of the Resource Management Act 1991 deals with administrative charges and allows a local authority to levy
charges that relate to, but are not limited to, carrying out its functions in relation to receiving, processing and granting of
resource consents (including certicates of compliance and existing use certicates).
Invoiced sums are payable by the 20th of the month after the work was undertaken. If unpaid, the processing of an
application, provision of a service, or performance of a function will be suspended until the sum is paid. You may also be
required to make an additional payment, or bring the account up to date, prior to milestones such as notication, setting
a hearing date or releasing the decision. In particular, all charges related to processing of a resource consent application
are payable prior to issuing of the decision. Payment is due on the 20th of the month or prior to the issue date –
whichever is earlier.
Section 357B of the Resource Management Act provides a right of objection in respect of additional charges. An objection must be
in writing and must be lodged within 15 working days of notication of the decision.
