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.
If your application is notied or requires a hearing you will be requested to pay a notication deposit and/or a hearing deposit. An
Requiring Authority may not oset any invoiced processing charges against such payments.
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.
If the initial fee charged is insucient to cover the actual and reasonable costs of work undertaken on the application you will be
required to pay any additional amount and will be invoiced monthly as work on the application continues. Please note that if the
Requiring Authority has outstanding fees owing to Council in respect of other applications, Council may choose to apply the initial fee
to any outstanding balances in which case the initial fee for processing this application may be deemed not to have been paid.
LIABILITY FOR PAYMENT – Please note that by signing and lodging this application form you are acknowledging that the Requiring
Authority is responsible for payment of invoices and in addition will be liable to pay all costs and expenses of debt recovery and/or
legal costs incurred by QLDC related to the enforcement of any debt.
