Each resource consent application is assessed individually, and we outline the charging of actual and reasonable costs associated with the processing of an application.
The only set fees are for specific actions (ie transferring a consent).
At the start of the process we will provide you with an estimate of the possible cost range for the application, although it is difficult to accurately predict the costs. All charges are shown in HBRC’s annual Charges Booklet sent to all consent holders in July each year, or ask for a copy from our Consent Advisor +646 833 8090 firstname.lastname@example.org.
An initial deposit is required before your application is assessed and the amount depends on the consent applied for. If your application needs to be notified, an additional deposit is required to be paid before this occurs.
|A new Consent application deposit||$2300 Deposit|
|Change of condition to an existing consent deposit||$862.50 Deposit|
|Replacement of expiring consent deposit||$2300 Deposit|
|Bore permit - Fixed Fee||$575 Fixed Fee|

See a complete list of charges in our Consent Charges Booklet - Charges Booklet
Once your consent is issued there are likely to be ongoing annual and monitoring costs, which vary depending on the consent. See a complete list of charges in our Consent Charges Booklet - Charges Booklet
Yes, you can have a say about how charges are set. Each year these charges are set out in HBRC’s draft annual plan so you can have a say through the public consultation process. You can make a submission to the draft annual plan in April-May. Once these charges are fixed, no-one can influence a change until the following annual plan.
The annual plan process includes a period for public submissions. Check this website in April - May each year for details.
Payments for fixed fees or deposits can be paid by either cheque, and attached to the application form, or via internet banking, using payment references provided by the Consent Advisor +646 833 8090 email@example.com. Go to our Make a payment page for more information.
