Earthworks consents

If you are undertaking any work that involves moving earth or landscaping - including building construction work - you may need to apply for a resource consent.

The earthworks rules in the District Plan are designed to:

  • keep people and property safe from potentially hazardous earthworks
  • provide protection to streams and waterways from sediment runoff and dust
  • minimise the visual effects of earthworks.
