Process focus: 223s/224s and email@example.com
Eve and Dorothy manage our firstname.lastname@example.org email address and administer the post subdivision approval processes. Here’s some information that will help with a smooth, efficient process:
- email@example.com is for RMA 223 and 224 applications and post subdivision enquiries.
- if you are emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, you do not need to copy in anyone else. If you are emailing a specific staff member you don’t need to copy in email@example.com.
- firstname.lastname@example.org there is no need to send a hard copy. However, there are two exceptions:
- A hard copy (eg USB/CD) of as built CAD files. We don’t yet have an effective way of saving these in our document management system therefore USB/CD is still required.
- Following receipt of documents occasionally Eve or Dorothy may come back to you and request a 3x hard copies. This will generally be for larger subdivisions.
We have been receiving more and more resource consent applications through email@example.com. Please send new resource consent applications to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Property inquires, such as copies of resource consent for subdivisions or land use consents, need to go through to our Property Information Officer. This can be done by contacting the call centre on 0800492452 or online by clicking here.
Subdivision lapse dates
A subdivision consent lapses on the date specified in the consent. If no date is specified, it will lapse five years after the commencement of the consent. Under RMA s125 an application can be made to extend the lapse date however, as a number of the District Plan policies and objectives regarding subdivision have changed in the last five years, there is no guarantee that an extension would be granted.
We suggest you do not rely on applying for a s125 extension of lapse date. A subdivision consent does not lapse if the consent is given effect to – i.e. when a survey plan in respect of the subdivision has been submitted to council under section 223. As long as your survey plan/request for 223 is received as complete before the lapse date, it can be processed. We have 10 working days to approve the 223 application and in some circumstances can extend the council 223 processing timeframe. We do not have authority to waive or extend a lapse date after the fact, it's very important that a complete application for 223 is received before the lapse date.
Requests for 223
With your request for 223 to release the E-Survey in Land Online, please remember to send in all documentation required for any ‘prior to 223’ conditions. For example, engineering plans that require submission/approval prior to 223.
Missing documentation for conditions compliance, such as producer statements or completions certificate for engineering conditions, will slow the process down. We hold this part of application until all documentation is received before passing to the Land Development Engineer for engineering approval.
Feedback wanted on our 224c TA Approval Package
We're streamlining some aspects of our post subdivision processes. One thing we’re reviewing is the 224c TA Approval Package that you receive from us once the 224 has been signed.
