The planning process is not quite finished when you receive your resource consent. This page provides a summary of the options available after a decision has been made.

Appeals, objections and changes to resource consents

Once a decision has been made on a resource consent application, if you do not agree with the decision, or the conditions of consent, there are options available to you to address your concerns.

Object

If your resource consent is processed as a non-notified consent, you may object to the Dunedin City Council if you are the applicant.

Appeal

If the resource consent is processed as a notified consent, you may appeal to the Environment Court if you are the applicant or a submitter. You may similarly appeal a decision given to an objection above, if you are the applicant.

Apply to change the conditions

If you are the applicant, and consider the conditions of the resource consent are not appropriate, you may apply to the Dunedin City Council for a change or cancellation of conditions.

Monitoring resource consents

Most resource consents are subject to some form of monitoring. An inspection is undertaken where the conditions of your resource consent are checked.

Extending the time period for resource consents

You usually have a period of five years from the date of issue to give effect to your resource consent. If you do not give effect to your resource consent within that time the resource consent will lapse. This means that you must ensure that you complete your proposed development in compliance with all conditions within the specified time, or you may have to start the process all over again.

You are able to apply to the Dunedin City Council to extend the time period you have available, but as part of any such application you must demonstrate that you have made substantial progress towards giving effect to the consent.
