Aurum Survey Consultants - Queenstown Resource Management, Resource consent applications / District Plan advice

The Resource Management Act (RMA) is the fundamental legislation that dictates the process of land development and subdivision in New Zealand. In simple terms, Local Authorities develop set of rules in an often unwieldy document called a District Plan which is based around the Resource Management Act.

Confused? Well that’s where we can help! We can simplify, explain and provide advice when you are looking to develop your land.

A general summary of our resource management services is provided under the headings below.

Resource Management areas

Adjusting a boundary line can be a detailed process, involving resource consent from the Council, formal survey plans to the approval of Land Information NZ, and your solicitor to request new titles for the affected land parcels. Each situation is unique, and we have the expertise to step you through the process and advise likely costs.

We love to chop up land parcels; simple two lot subdivisions, large scale developments with lots of lots, whether fee simple, unit title or leasehold…we have Licensed Cadastral Surveyors with the qualifications and experience to make it happen.

The subdivision process involves numerous steps where our skills can be put to work:

  • Design & feasibility
  • Resource consent applications
  • Construction set out and management
  • Boundary pegging and formal survey plans
  • Council liaison and approvals
  • Land Information NZ liaison and approvals
  • Solicitor liaison to assist with issue of new titles

If you are thinking about subdivision, come see us first; we can provide the necessary professional advice to achieve your goals in the most efficient and effective way possible.

If you are looking to subdivide, build a house, undertake earthworks, (the list goes on) it is likely you will be caught by a rule in the District Plan … so long story short, you’ll need resource consent from the Council.

Our staff have extensive knowledge of the resource consent process and requirements of the Queenstown Lakes District Council District Plan. If you have a project in mind, come and see us and we can provide advice on the likely implications with respect to the Resource Management Act. We can also provide the necessary application forms, prepare consent applications on your behalf, and provide advice on who else you can talk to in order to progress your proposal.

If all has gone to plan, things have measured up and fallen in place, then you should enquire about our other passion; mountain bikes! We have in house self proclaimed experts on the best local trails, the best bikes and the best equipment. We are overly enthusiastic about getting into the hills, riding up what our lungs allow, and bombing down what our heads say we shouldn’t…and we’re always happy to share the adventure!!
