When you have registered, the Council’s resource consents planner will decide whether or not you are an affected person, using s95 of the Act.
If you are not identified as an affected person, we could grant consent for the proposed activity, and your comments will be noted.
If you are an affected person, the proposed activity will become subject to a notifiable resource consent. This means you will have the opportunity to make a submission on the proposal. An independent commissioner will be appointed and they will take your submission into account when making their decision.
