LIM applications received up until Wednesday 20 December 2017 will be issued prior to closure at midday on 22 December however we cannot guarantee this. The earlier we receive their applications the better chance they have of receiving the completed LIM before Christmas. Those received after Wednesday 20 December 2017 will be issued after Sunday 14 January 2018.

RMA Stop the Clock:

RMA interpretations section states - "working day means a day of the week other than—a day in the period commencing on 20 December in any year and ending with 10 January in the following year."

The period between 20 December and 10 January each year is excluded from the working days count for all timeframes. This means that any weekdays during this time may not count as working days. For example, for a resource consent application lodged on 19 December, the 'clock' will not start ticking until January 11.

Council would like to inform the public that any Building or Resource consents receipted after the Friday 17 November 2017 are not guaranteed to be processed before Christmas, although Council will do it's best to make sure all complete consent applications are issued within their timeframe.
