How to make a submission
Please note that the procedure for submissions concerning resource management consent applications varies slightly from that set out below. The guidelines concerning resource management submissions are available under Notified Consents.
The Council will ask for public submissions on particular issues. While there is no set format that a submission should take, you should aim to present your submission in a way that is both ordered and easy to understand.
You can lodge your submission with Greater Wellington Regional Council in person, or by post, email or fax. Make sure you include your name, address and phone number in your submission and clearly state whether or not you would like to make an oral presentation in support of your submission.
Please also note that any submission you make may become publicly available. If you are making a submission as an individual, Greater Wellington Regional Council will consider removing your personal contact details if you request this in your submission.
Section 82 of the Local Government Act 2002 details how consultation undertaken by Greater Wellington Regional Council in relation to any decision or other matter must be conducted.
In addition, by law, the Council must follow the special consultative procedure before it:
The Council may also be required to use the special consultative procedure under other legislation, and it may choose to use this procedure in other circumstances if it wishes to do so.
