In This Section
Under the Resource Management Act 1991 Council must monitor resource consents to ensure they're complying with all conditions. However, not all consents will have conditions requiring ongoing monitoring (eg a dwelling closer than 4m to the front boundary will not require further monitoring once it's been confirmed it has been constructed in the right place). Resource Consents needing monitoring will have an inspection.
Additional charges may be imposed where additional site visits and inspections are necessary. To see the schedule of fees and charges visit our Fees and Charges section. You can contact Council’s Monitoring and Enforcement Officer on 06 366 0999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Resource Management Act 1991 provides mechanisms to deal with non-compliance with a Resource Consent. These include:
Under the Act, the court may impose a fine of up to $300,000 and/or a term of imprisonment not exceeding two years and where the offence continues it may impose an additional fine of up to $1,000 per day for each day on which the offence continues. In addition to those penalties, you may be required to contribute to or pay all of the costs incurred by Council in taking the enforcement action.
If you believe some person is acting in breach of either the Resource Management Act 1991 generally or the conditions of a Resource Consent, discuss your concerns with a Council Consents Officer on 06 366 0999.
Please provide as much detail as you can, so we can fix any issues you are having.
