Building & Resource Consent Christmas Processing Times 2019/2020
Under the Building Act 2004 and the Resource Management Act 1991, the period between 20 December and 10 January each year are excluded from the working days count for all consent processing timeframes. This means that any weekdays during this time are not counted as working days.
Therefore we want to let you know that any building or resource consents received after 9am on Monday 19 November 2019 are not guaranteed to be processed before Christmas, although we will do our best to make sure all complete consent applications are issued within their timeframe.
