The words “resource consent” can sound intimidating, but often they don’t need to be. Come and have a chat with our Tauranga planning and resource consent consultants and we’ll provide you with some frank advice on how the process works and what to expect. We have years of experience in planning and will know relatively quickly just how smooth the process will be. Name it, and our planners have done it, like gaining consents for houses in flooding areas as identified under Plan Change 27, placing a minor dwelling too far from a dwelling, retirement villages, and all the way through to complex subdivisions and residential intensification.
