Resource consents allow people or organisations to do something that may have an effect on our environment.
This could be using or taking water, land, or coastal resources. They also allow the discharge of water or wastes into air, water, or onto land. Resource consents include conditions to protect people and the environment. We monitor consented activities to make sure that the conditions are being met.
