Consent and LGOIMA request processing over the Christmas period
The Building Act 2004, Resource Management Act 1991 and Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987 all allow for extended timeframes to process or respond over the Christmas period. The weekdays between 20 December to 10 January are excluded from processing timeframes.
We will do our best to process any complete requests received after 20 November 2019 in line with statutory timeframes but it cannot be guaranteed.
LIM applications need to be received by the Planning Department on or before 10 December 2019 to be processed before Christmas.
For events being held over the Christmas and New Year period that require a Special Licence, you must have applications lodged with Council by Tuesday 12 November.
