The Council has a statutory responsibility under the Resource Management Act 1991 to prepare and administer its District Plan.

The Strategy and Planning division is responsible for promoting the sustainable management of Upper Hutts natural and physical resources in a manner that is consistent with the Resource Management Act 1991. This is in keeping with Councils City Vision ‘Upper Hutt City – A great Place to Live’ and the community outcomes identified in the LTP (Long Term Plan).

Anything not permitted by the District Plan requires a resource consent, which will be for either a land use consent or a subdivision consent. Resource Consents and Building Consents are different and have different processes and different requirements for consulting your neighbours.
