A statement specifying all other resource consents
Provide a statement outlining any other resource consents you're applying for or have been granted that relate to this application – including ones from Greater Wellington Regional Council.
Permitted activities and/or existing use rights
If your proposal relies on permitted activities and/or existing use rights (for example, earthworks which are under the District Plan thresholds, or if there is an existing non-residential use of a building in a residential area) you'll need to provide:
- sufficiently detailed plans outlining these
- evidence that the activity was legally established – for example, you obtained a previous resource consent to do the work.
Wind assessment report
If your building, structure or alteration is located in the central area of Wellington and is above 18.6 metres high, or exceeds the maximum height limit in a Centres area, you'll need to provide a wind assessment report from a qualified wind specialist. This is to make sure the building is designed to avoid, remedy or mitigate any wind problems.
Wind tunnel test report
A wind tunnel test report is used to examine the effect of the proposed building upon all areas open to the public – for example, roads, parks, malls and the entranceways and forecourt area of the proposed building/s. It must be supplied to show compliance with the wind standards.
You may only need to provide a wind assessment report if we decide you don't need a wind tunnel test.
If you need more information, the full requirements for applying for a resource consent are listed in chapter 3.2 of the District Plan.
