Application forms, supporting information and creating maps

Putting together a consent application is complex; however, the clearer you describe what you want to do and where you want to do it, the easier the process of lodging an application will be.

You will need to use our application forms and possibly some of our online tools to help. Resource consent application forms and associated documents are grouped by type below. Please contact us if you need help finding anything.

If you are wanting to create a map of where the activity will take place click here. 

Note: If you are completing the form electronically and returning to us by email you do not need to physically sign the application form. Instead please type your name in the signature space. All completed application forms can be emailed too RegulatoryAdmin@boprc.govt.nz
