5. The CoC is issued
We'll issue your CoC as long as we're satisfied that the proposed activity complies with the District Plan and any relevant National Environmental Standards.
A CoC acts in the same way as a resource consent – this means you'll have to compete the work within the time frame given on your certificate.
If your CoC is declined
Your application can be declined if we determine that you need to apply for resource consent instead, because:
- you haven't included enough information
- your project doesn't comply with the District Plan.
