About the discount

The discount set out by the regulations is 1% per day, up to a maximum of 50 working days.

The regulations only apply to resource consent applications that are processed by local authorities, or to the parts of an application processed by a local authority (eg, the council’s processing of a resource consent before it is called in by the Minister for the Environment as a nationally significant proposal).
