Monitoring and enforcement
Government legislation requires us to carry out monitoring and enforcement roles in relation to resource consents and building work.
The Natural and Built Environment Act 2023 has been repealed by Parliament. See Changes to resource management and Resource Management (Natural and Built Environment and Spatial Planning Repeal and Interim Fast-track Consenting) Bill for more information.
We monitor subdivisions and land use activities for which resource consents have been issued. We also investigate building work that may breach District Plan rules by not having the necessary consents. If you're concerned a development might not comply with the District Plan, call the duty planner as soon as possible or email the Resource Consents team.
We also take enforcement action when required. The Compliance and Enforcement Policy 2018 provides general guidance on how compliance, enforcement and prosecution matters are dealt with by Council.
