Has anyone noticed that developers now have the right to do whatever they want on a development site? Resource consents for intensive, multi unit sites are not only non notified but now have virtually zero conditions.This allows council to absolve themselves of all responsibility for any adverse effects on neighbouring properties, such as damage to health from dust, damage to neighbours’ tree roots, damage to neighbours’ houses from construction and effects on privacy and quality of life. These consents are no longer processed by council officers but by private companies who could well have links to developers. Neighbours have in many cases lived there for over 20 years and without their rates payments, councillors and council monitoring officers would be out of a job.
