Christmas closedown period for consent processing

If you’re planning to lodge an resource or building consent application in December or January, you’ll want to be aware of Council close down periods.

The RMA sets statutory time limits for local authorities to process resource consent applications.  For example, councils have 20 working days to process a non-notified application. Over the Christmas and New Year period however, a statutory close-down period means that consent processing at all councils is put on hold between 20 December and 10 January.

In the meantime, put your feet up, relax and enjoy some time out with your loved ones. Seasons greetings from the team at Avanzar!
