Resource Management Fees and Charges
The Lodgement Fee will be required to accompany the Resource Consent Application. An invoice will be sent for additional fees. The Lodgement Fee is a deposit only and may not be the complete charge. There may be additional fees or a part refund as explained above.
If applications for resource consent and applications to change or cancel conditions are not processed within the statutory time frames, discounts shall be paid on administrative charges. The discounts shall be in accordance with the Regulations to the Resource Management Act 1991.
Section 36 of the Resource Management Act 1991 enables Council to charge additional fees to recover actual and reasonable costs where the Lodgement Fee is inadequate.
When the total cost to process an application exceeds the Lodgement Fee, Charge Out Rates may apply.
Council also reserves its discretion to refund part of the fixed fee if the work required to process the application is less than usual.
These fees will not be refunded if the application is declined or withdrawn.
For Financial Contributions please see the Waimate District Council Financial Contributions Policy or the Waimate District Plan.
