The Proposed Regional Plan for Northland and the National Environmental Standards - Freshwater contain rules governing the use of resources within the Northland Region.
The rules include provision for some activities being permitted, provided the activity complies with the requirements, conditions and permissions specified for the permitted activity.
A large number of permitted activities require notification to Northland Regional Council prior to the commencement of the activity. These notifications can be submitted using our online permitted activity notification form.
Please note that one of our monitoring officers may contact you for further information and/or to inspect the works being undertaken.
