Proposed Fees and Charges Changes

Submissions are now closed.

Changes are proposed to the fee schedules for work associated with building consents, resource consents and resource management engineering services.  The objective of the changes is to better align the initial fee paid with the actual and reasonable costs of completing the work, and to better align the costs of consenting and approval processes with the Council’s funding policy for Planning and Development which is to achieve an 80/20 private/public split.   Changes are best summarised into three categories:

 

A.      Proposed increases to the hourly charge out rates for officers

B.      Proposed increases to building consent related fees

C.      Proposed increases and reductions to resource consent related fees
