Resource Consents

By law, the period from Tuesday 20 December 2022 to Tuesday 10 January 2023 is excluded from the 20 working day processing period (statutory processing clock) for building or resource consents applications.

This means applications received after the ‘clock has stopped’ on Monday 19 December 2022, may not be processed until  Wednesday 11 January 2023.

Current applications that are not signed off by Council before Monday 19 December 2022 may also be paused until Wednesday 11 January 2023.

There are a few things you can do to plan for delays:

  • When submitting new applications make sure you’ve included everything as we can’t accept incomplete applications.
  • Book a free appointment with our Duty Planner and Building Officer as soon as possible.
  • If your application is affected by the statutory shutdown period, let your agent or builders know to expect a delay.

There are two types of resource consents administered by the Council: Land Use Consents and Subdivision Consents. 

In addition there is a certification regime administered by Council for "Boundary Activities".

Land use Consents

A Land use Consent is required when you have a proposal to carry out an activity, or construct a building in a way that is not permitted by the District Plan. There are two options - either to comply with the planning standards by amending your proposal, or you may choose to apply for a resource consent.

Subdivision Consents

Subdivision Consent is required for any subdivision of land, including cross-leases and unit titles.

See: Subdivisions

If you are considering subdividing or want to know if it is possible on a particular piece of land, it is best to contact a Planning Officer at Council to discuss the proposal. They can give you an indication of the rules in the District Plan that apply to your situation.

Permitted Boundary Activities

A Permitted Boundary Activity may be applied for when you want to build a structure that will be closer to your neighbour than the District Plan rules allow, e.g. within the side or rear (other) yard requirement or through the daylight control/daylighting envelope.

Note:

  • It cannot be applied for if the adjoining land is public - e.g. roads, reserves, crown land.
  • It cannot be applied for if your proposal requires a resource consent under any other District Plan rule. 

Two Sections of the District Plan

Note that the District Plan has two sections that apply: the Hauraki section of the District Plan, and the Franklin section of the District Plan (applicable to anyone who lives in the area of Hauraki District previously in the Franklin District).

For a general guide to Hauraki section of the District Plan standards (in the Residential, Low Density Residential and Rural Zones) see:

Refer to the Hauraki section for standards applying to other zones.

Refer to the Franklin section for standards applying to the Franklin area.

Subdivision Consents

A Subdivision Consent is required for any subdivision of land, including cross-leases and unit titles.

Development Contributions

Development contributions help to pay for growth-related infrastructure like a larger Council water reservoir to supply water to a development. When someone applies for consents or connections for development (such as subdividing land or undertaking building work) they will need to pay money to fund growth related infrastructure.

As-built Information

Council requires As-Built information to be supplied for all infrastructural development or improvement works.

This information is used to update records and asset management systems to provide quality information for the efficient management, operation, maintenance and knowledge of each asset.

RAMM Data Collection Forms

The purpose of this template is to assist suppliers in the delivery of electronic RAMM data to Hauraki District Council (HDC).

Sheets have been developed based on the requirements of RAMM and are intended for use as a tool for suppliers to understand data requirements.

Data requirements included are specifically selected to meet HDC requirements for each asset type, these sheets are not designed to be a replacement for products such as Pocket RAMM which include all RAMM fields.

It is the expectation of HDC that data collection is undertaken by suitably trained personnel. Contractual obligations relating to data collection and delivery supersede these instructions.
