If undertaking a land development project, then it is assured that a resource consent will be required under the Resource Management Act 1991.  This Act promotes the sustainable management of natural and physical resources such as land, air and water.


There are some complexities to understanding the Act and how this can directly impact projects both financially and in terms of feasibility of what can be achieved with the land.  Working with an experienced planner can provide clear direction for projects and help in understanding the requirements in local authority District Plans and how these are applied.  This can reduce unnecessary time delays and costly mistakes.


We work with the client, local authorities, decision makers and stakeholders so we are all moving in the same direction with a common goal.

The Geoworks' planning team can help in the following specialist areas:


  • Resource Consent Applications and Submissions

  • Land Use Consents

  • Subdivision Consent and Design (Urban and Rural)

  • Stormwater Discharge Consents

  • Earthworks Consents

  • Rezoning
