Planning: a guide for developers

Provides practical advice on making developments better for people and the environment.



We have designed this document as a ‘first stop’ for information to help you make the most of your development for people and the environment. We also signpost you to more detailed technical information, including consents and permits you might need.

We want to encourage you to speak with us as early as possible when planning a new development. That way you will understand the environmental issues you need to consider from the outset, and how we can help you make the whole process run as smoothly as possible.
