Section 36

If you hold a resource consent to discharge to land or water, you are asked to pay a contribution towards ongoing research and monitoring into the state of that resource. The same applies if you hold consent to take water from one of the Region’s rivers or streams.

Section 36 charges relate to resource consents for both research and compliance monitoring. You may receive research charges, compliance charges, or both, depending on the nature of the consented activity.
