RC1: Resource Consents - An Update

Presented by Dr Lee Beattie

Introduction to Resource Consents is part of NZPI’s CPD Resource Consent Stream. It is designed to provide the participants with a general introduction to the resource consent process and requirements under the Resource Management Act 1991(RMA). The course is aimed at recent graduates, professionals with limited knowledge of the RMA and the consent process, and people new to the New Zealand planning system.

This one-day workshop draws on Lee’s extensive experience, including as an Independent Hearing Commissioner and Chair of the Auckland Urban Design Panel. It is based around up-to-date case studies, interactive examples and exercises drawing on the relevant case law and how these should be applied in practice, including:
