Resource Consents

Resource consents are a key part of the resource management system in New Zealand. They give you permission to do things with land, water or buildings that might normally be restricted. 

There are different types of resource consents, depending on what you want to do:

  • Building consent: This is needed to build something new, or to make changes to an existing building
  • Land use consent: This is needed to use land in a way that is not normally allowed, for example to subdivide land
