Resource Consent & Subdivision Consent
We offer a one-stop solution to all your consenting needs. You can count on us to take care of the hassles of the entire process. We will manage end-to-end stages of your consenting needs.
Can I subdivide my section and build an additional dwelling at the back?
What consents would I need, how long will it take, and how much will it cost?
For consents processing we offer the following services:
preparing the total application package
writing the Assessment of Environmental Effects (AEE)
ensuring all supporting documents such as architectural design, engineering reports and scheme plans are ready before lodgement
lodging the application on your behalf
liaising with council and responding to request for further information
managing the entire process from lodgement to approval
Assessing feasibility at the very initial stage of building, subdividing, buying or selling is important to avoid disappointment later. We offer a range of feasibility options from a consultation session to a detailed report.
When I sold my property couple of months ago, I did not realise its full development potential under the Auckland Unitary Plan. I think I sold it under market value. It’s too late now.
I bought my property two years ago. Last year, I went to council to seek advice to subdivide and build a new house at the back. I was told that I can neither subdivide nor build. I was not aware of this restriction when I bought the property.
Have you ever been in either of the above scenarios? Or do you know someone who is in that awkward situation? We will help you avoid such disappointments. We will provide you with key information about your property so that you can make the right decision about your building, subdividing, buying or selling journey.
Unitary Plan Advice
We are experts in the district plan process, and are experienced in the Unitary Plan preparation. We will work with you on plan changes, submissions, hearings or appeals.
I am interested in a property and would be keen to know about possibility to change the zoning after purchase. Would it be feasible? What is the process? How much would it cost and how long would it take?
My property is affected by Unitary Plan change. What does this mean and how can I make a submission?
We heard that council is changing zoning in our area to allow three level buildings. What is going to happen to my privacy? Are my neighbours going to build houses right next to my fence?
We offer planning services to represent you if you need to attend a consent or plan change hearings. We will act on your behalf and work with a legal counsel and specialists to represent you at hearings. We can advise you on other Resource Management Act processes such as court hearings, submissions and appeals.
iSolutions will give their best shot to ensure that you get the best value for your money, and that your project journey is hassle-free and enjoyable.
