Section 36 Charges Policy

Changes to Bay of Plenty Regional Council’s Resource Management Act and Building Act Charges Policy 2016/2017 

The Bay of Plenty Regional Council is responsible for controlling the use of a wide range of resources, which requires us to process resource consents, monitor and manage consented and other authorised activities and investigate the state of the region’s resources. 

The framework for setting charges to do this work sits under Section 36 of the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA). Each year we develop a charging policy that sets out what costs we intend to recover from carrying out our regulatory functions.
