Consents Monitoring

We assist farmers and industries to obtain resource consents by carrying out site inspections and offering advice to ensure compliance with the One Plan and Resource Management Act 1991.

Once a consent has been issued, inspections are carried out to ensure all the conditions of the consent are met. This type of monitoring applies to both industrial and rural properties and for the following types of consents: water takes, discharges to land or water, discharges to air, placement of structures in watercourses and earthworks.

We also monitor reported incidents of pollution through our Pollution Hotline.

Council provides updated reports on its regulatory consents which are available in the Environment Committee documents. One of the reports that is available covers waste water treatment plant compliance. It is updated twice yearly. To view the most recent report, please click here
