How does the resource consent process work?

The diagram below from The Ministry for the Environment (MfE) illustrates the process Auckland Council will follow when people or businesses apply for a resource consent. For this project, Waste Management has already asked that our application is publically notified, so Auckland Council will not have to make that decision.

To learn more about the process, there is a section on MfE’s website called An everyday guide: Applying for a resource consent here.
