A resource consent is an important legal document.
When you first receive your resource consent, it is important that you read and understand it. Please ask our staff to clarify any points that you do not fully understand.
Your resource consent will usually have conditions that control the way the activity is carried out. These conditions are designed to maintain and protect Tasman's environment and natural resources for now and the future.
As a resource consent holder, it is your responsibility to adhere to the consent conditions. If you do not stay within those conditions, you risk enforcement action by the Tasman District Council.
There are also a number of ways you can change or transfer your resource consent.
