Whether you are embarking on renovating your house, restoring a scheduled or listed piece of our built history, or intending to develop in and around a character overlay area, chances are you will need to seek a resource consent from your local government authority to do so
... and YES, the consenting process can be complicated and challenging, and that is where we can help - offering experienced independent advice and guidance, and any of the required documentation, such as a 'Heritage Impact Assessment' your planner may need to assist with compiling, submitting and administering your application. If a hearing then ensues, we can help with that too. Sleep easy, and leave the process to us...
