Online consent application forms

All resource consent applications can be completed online (payment options are credit card or internet banking).

The first step with any of these online forms is to log in with RealMe, or create a RealMe login if you don't already have one.

See below for the sort of information you'll need to upload before completing any of these forms, and information on an essential step you'll need to take if you're making a coastal application.

Online forms (links open in new window):

To complete a consent application online you may need to upload some files first such as -

  • Site photos (e.g. for a culvert/bridge)
  • Plans
  • Written approval forms
  • Supporting documents

You may find it easier if you have these files ready before you start the online application. After you start the application you can save your progress and complete the application later.

Are you making a coastal application?

Before lodging any application for an activity in the Coastal Marine Area, you must seek comment from those who have lodged applications under the Marine and Coastal Areas (Takutai Moana) Act. Please let the consents team ( know the location of your intended activity and they will advise you who to contact.
