APPENDIX A // Note to Submitter
The closing date for serving submissions on the consent authority is the 20th working day after the date on which
public or limited notication is given. If the application is subject to limited notication, the consent authority may
adopt an earlier closing date for submissions once the consent authority receives responses from all aected persons.
You must serve a copy of your submission on the applicant as soon as is reasonably practicable after you have served
your submission on the consent authority.
If you are a trade competitor, your right to make a submission may be limited by the trade competition provisions in
Part 11A of the Resource Management Act 1991.
If you make a request under section 100A of the Resource Management Act 1991, you must do so in writing no later
than 5 working days after the close of submissions and you may be liable to meet or contribute to the costs of the
hearings commissioner or commissioners. You may not make a request under section 100A of the Resource
Management Act 1991 in relation to an application for a coastal permit to carry out an activity that a regional coastal
plan describes as a restricted coastal activity.

that at least 1 of the following applies to the submission (or part of the submission):
• it is frivolous or vexatious:
