Resource Management Fees

Fees are as set under Section 36 of the Resource Management Act. Initial deposit feesare set under section 36(1) and must be paid before we start processing your application. Further charges will be incurred if additional time is spent processing the request, or if disbursement costs are incurred, which are over and above the allocated time provisions.

If any charge for an application is not paid by the due date, then Kapiti Coast District Council reserves the right under Section 36(7) of the Resource Management Act to stop processing the application. This may include the cancellation of a hearing or the issuing of a decision. If a hearing is cancelled or postponed due to the non-payment of a charge, the applicant will be charged for any costs that may arise from that cancellation or postponement.

Discounts shall be paid on administrative charges for applications for resource consent applications that are not processed within the statutory timeframes. The discounts shall be in accordance with the Regulations to the Resource Management Act 1991.

Please check for engineering fees that may also be applicable.
