This section of our website has more detailed information about resource consent applications that may attract or have attracted a lot of public interest.
Some resource consent applications are for activities that may have wide-ranging effects on the environment and/or many people. For example, constructing a vehicle bridge on a farm may only affect people on the property itself. In contrast, large constructions such as marinas or projects involving a change to lake or river levels for power generation may result in increased effects on the surrounding environment.
These larger scale consent applications are of interest to the community’s environmental, economic, cultural, recreational and spiritual values.
