Environmental Effects Assessment
The process of obtaining resource consents has evolved markedly since the Resource Management Act came into effect. Developing and implementing an appropriate plan for obtaining resource consents is critical to ensuring that relationships with stakeholders are maintained/improved, that the consent has suitable consent conditions and that the consent is obtained in a timely and cost effective manner.
