Unconsented existing lake structures and other works

If any of the following scenarios are relevant to your application you will need to submit a new application form

             Extension of a Lake Structure or changing the lake structure i.e. floating structure.

             Unconsented existing lake structures: retaining walls, pontoons, moorings or similar types of structures.

             Removal of vegetation: If you require vegetation to be removed in conjunction with maintaining and using your structure.

             Dredging: If you require dredging to access and use your lake structure.

All of the above scenarios will require additional affected party consent approval from some or all of the various agencies (Department of Conservation, Land Information New Zealand, Te Arawa Lakes Trust, Fish and Game, Rotorua Lakes Council). 

It is highly recommended that you obtain these approvals prior to lodging your consent application as you will require lake/lakebed owner approval and it will allow your consent to be processed in a relatively streamlined manner.

You will also require engineering reports for unconsented existing lake structures and detailed information including methodology, area etc. for removal of vegetation and dredging.

If the applicants are the same you will be able to lodge both the streamlined application and the application form 1C at the same time and pay one $774 deposit fee.
