Resource consent application

Which agency applied for the resource consent?

In January 2020, Kāinga Ora applied for resource consent from Christchurch City Council to establish the proposed programme at 14 Bristol Street. Kāinga Ora is the owner of the property and applied for resource consent on behalf of the Department of Corrections.

What is the status of the application?

Christchurch City Council decided that public notification was required. The period for submissions has now closed. Next, the council will set a hearing date and the application will be considered by two independent commissioners.

How can I have my say?

When the council publicly notifies our resource consent application, you will be able to make a submission. This will probably take place in early 2021.

You can read more about this process on the Christchurch City Council website.
