Stop the clock!
Building and Resource Consent
If you submit a resource or building consent after Wednesday 20 December 2017 it may take longer than usual to be processed due to the Christmas/ New Year break.
This is because under the Resource Management Act 1991 and the Building Act 2004 the statutory processing clock stops over Christmas and New Year.
In other words, the period between 20 December 2017 and 10 January 2018 is excluded from the 20 working day time-frame we are required to process consents within.
So if you are thinking about submitting a building or resource consent it would be a good idea to get in touch with us to discuss your needs and avoid disappointments.
LIM (Land information Memorandum) Requests
There may also be delays in the processing of LIM requests between 25 December 2017 and 15 January 2018.
This is due to the observation of non-statutory working days in accordance with the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987.
If you would like a LIM request processed between now and Christmas you will need to apply for an Urgent LIM before 20 December 2017.
Note: There is an extra charge for an Urgent LIM
