Resources are air, ground and water. Any activities which affect the quality of air, ground or water, may require a consent from council, The Environment Court, or Board of Enquiry. Resource management concerns the consent and any conditions a council may impose to grant that consent. Our resource management lawyers can tell you which activities require consent, how you get it, and what conditions you should agree to. Through the process, we can provide you with expert advice to make the right decisions and achieve your goals.
Situations where you’ll need our resource management lawyer:
Where there are discharges to air, land and water in commercial, industrial, agricultural, and aquatic environments
Water access, storage and use
Subdivision and its environmental impacts

Litigation involving local authorities or other decision makers
