If a LIM, building consent or resource consent is on your Christmas wish list, you'll need to get a jingle on

By law, the period from Sunday 20 December 2020 to Sunday 10 January 2021 is excluded from the 20 working day processing period (statutory processing clock) for processing building and resource consents. This means applications received after the clock has stopped on Monday 21 December 2020, may not be processed until Monday 11 January 2021. Current applications that are not signed off before Friday 18 December may also be paused until Monday 11 January 2021.

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. 

LIM deadlines

If you want a standard LIM before Christmas, we'll need your application by 9am Monday 7 December and urgent LIM applications by 9am Wednesday 16 December.

Processing for Special Alcohol Licences begins again on 15 January 2020

A special licence is required to authorise the licensee to sell and supply alcohol to people attending an event described in the licence.  Special Liquor Licence applications must be lodged with Council at least 20 working days before the event so the deadline for special licences for events over the Christmas/ New Year period closed in November. Processing for events in the new year will begin again on 15 January 2020.
