Compliance monitoring

Updated 19 October 2017 4:08pm

GWRC is responsible for checking that consent holders comply with their consent conditions. We do that through our Strategic
Compliance Monitoring Programme. This programme focusses on prioritising monitoring consents based on various risk factors. What this means is that some consents may be intensively monitored whilst others may not be monitored at all. 

How is compliance assessed?

When GWRC undertakes compliance monitoring of resource consents, a compliance rating is assigned to each consent assessed. 

COMPLYING

No further action required

MINOR NON-COMPLIANCE

Condition(s) not met. Some action required

NON- COMPLIANCE

Condition(s) not met. Immediate action required

For some larger activities (often with multiple consents), an overall star based rating of the site is provided:

  • 4 stars - very good 
  • 3 stars - good
  • 2 stars - fair
  • 1 star - poor
