The submission period for notified resource consents is 20 working days. After the submission period closes a hearing date is set.
Following the hearing a Hearing Committee has 15 working days to consider the application and release a decision. Both the applicant and submitters have the right to appeal the decision within 15 working days of it being released.
Any appeals need to be lodged with the Environment Court, which is likely to ask the parties to undertake mediation. If the concerns can't be resolved in mediation then the matter will go to an Environment Court hearing.
