With any land development projects there are no two properties that are the same, there are both physical and non-physical attributes which influence how and if a property can be developed or the proposed activity approved. It is essential that the land development requirements and constraints for a property are disclosed at the earliest possible opportunity. This enables developers and business owners to make informed decisions about the viability of developing a property.
A Resource Consent is a formal approval from Council for such things such as the use or subdivision of land, the taking of water, the discharge of contaminants in water, soil or air, or the use or occupation of coastal space. It is not just new buildings that may require resource consent, a new use of an existing building may also require resource consent. CLC deals with both regional and district consents. Regional consents focus on the management of our air, water, land and soil whereas district consents focus on managing subdivision and land use.

Selwyn Road, Kohimarama
The applicant sought land use consent approval from Auckland Council for the removal of an existing two-level residential dwelling off a rear site with a subsequent replacement of a new two-level residential dwelling in the Residential 2B zone. The demolition of this pre 1940s dwelling was to have little to no adverse effects on the architectural value or character of the area. The dwelling demonstrated little architectural value due to numerous modifications and lack of one consistent discernable style. Subsequently the dwelling was located down a right of way and therefore its demolition did not affect the streetscape character, as it did not actively contribute to it. We undertook a site and context analysis and provided a structural report to support this application. Consent for this proposal was granted in 2013.

The applicant sought resource consent approval to store and manage hazardous substances (Classes 2, 3 and 9) as per the rules within the Operative Manukau City District Plan 2002. The applicant proposed to utilise the existing purpose built warehousing building with storage and office facilities. Land-use consent was required as under the Hazardous Facilities Screening Procedure, all activities with an effects ratio greater than 1.5 in this Zone are classed as discretionary activities. We undertook a qualitative risk assessment to support the application and gained written approval from all affected parties. Resource Consent was granted in 2012.
