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.
