How will this affect me?


Resource consent applications, permit or approvals in the common marine and coastal area are already affected.

With immediate effect from the lodging of claims to CMT, anyone now seeking resource consent for an activity within the common marine and coastal area must:

  • identify which iwi, hapū, and whānau groups have applied for CMT in the area affected by the resource consent application;
  • notify, and seek the views of these groups, prior to applying for the resource consent;
  • provide with the consent application any views expressed by the groups.
