Resource Consent Monitoring

Under the Resource Management Act 1991, the Council must monitor compliance with resource consent conditions and their impact on the environment.

If Council has granted a resource consent that is subject to conditions, then Council monitors the activity to ensure that it complies with these conditions.

You can assist by adhering to your consent conditions. Early consultation and liaison with Council's Monitoring and Enforcement Officer may avoid compliance problems.

Please note:

  • Not all consents will have conditions requiring monitoring
  • Resource consents needing monitoring will have an inspection
  • Costs may be incurred where additional site visits and inspections are necessary
