Notified and Limited notified Resource Consent Applications
There are two types of notified resource consent applications:
- publicly notified applications - allows any person to lodge a submission in support and/or opposition, or to indicate a neutral position with respect to an application
- limited notified applications - notice of the application is served on all persons identified as being adversely affected and allowing only those persons to lodge a submission. However, where affected parties have provided their written approval they are not served notice and cannot lodge a submission.
Any party who is a trade competitor is not able to make a submission on trade grounds (as outlined in s308B). Refer to the Trade competition fact sheet on the Ministry for the Environment’s website for more information.
Section 2AA of the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA) provides definitions relating to both public and limited notification.
