Section 36 Charges Policy
Bay of Plenty Regional Council is responsible for a range of resources which include monitoring, processing and administration. This includes processing resource consents, monitoring of consented activities, resource investigation and monitoring and management.
The framework for setting charges to do this work sits under Section 36 of the Resource Management Act 1991.
Each year we review our Section 36 Charges Policy that sets out what costs we intend to recover from carrying out our regulatory functions.
