SITUATIONS VACANT Subdivision hurdles Developers cannow get a written summary of just what they face in the application process. By HELEN MURDOCH ' A lot of people come away feeling the council is not encouraging growth. But if they step back and consider how the region should develop appropriately they will see it is a very difficult thing. ' Paul Newton Tasman landowners wishing to subdivide can now get a written indication of the potential process they face. But it s still not gold- standard, said Paul Newton, of Newton Survey. Paul said the change stemmed from last November s forum of planners, lawyers, surveyors and council staff which was driven by the case of Trish and Charlie Goulter. The couple were left $21,000 poorer after abortively applying to subdivide their 3.9 hectare Stagecoach Rd property in 2011. Trish said they finally gave up on the process after ticking every box and jumping through every hoop when the council said their application was discretionary and would have to go to a hearing, which they could not afford. Under the Resource Manage- ment Act a discretionary activity requires a resource consent. Trish said last year the council s application process was appalling and needed to change. She had pinned hope on a open forum, promised by mayor Richard Kempthorne, when they met in his office, she said. But she was later disap- pointed to learn the forum went ahead without any public input. The mayor later said the forum was never intended to be public. Paul said resource manage- ment consultants could now submit written preliminary plans to the council outlining their client s proposal and issues. The subsequent feedback would give applicants a better understanding of the potential process they faced and the boxes they had to tick. However he had wanted to see some sort of layman s brochure on subdivision applications made available to the public, which had not happened. And the process still relied on staff planners promoting landowners plans within the council, he said. It still relies on the subject- iveness of the planners, he said. Paul said some councils processes were worse than Tasman. But in his view the district s process placed too much weight on the views of affected neighbours with one opposing neighbour able to push an application to hearing stage. A lot of people come away feeling the council is not encour- aging growth. But if they step back and consider how the region should develop appropri- ately they will see it is a very difficult thing. Resource management consultant Mark Lile, of Land- mark Lile, said the council provided best- and worst-case scenario cost estimations but the difficulty was predicting how discretionary applications would pan out. He said landowners would never get a yes or no answer from any council on discretion- ary applications and they had to assess the risk, pay their money and take their chances. Some get through and some don t, but they are all very different. Council environment and planning manager Dennis Bush- King said a list of action points which emerged from the forum reminded those involved how things could be done better. The practice of appointing one staff member to follow each application had been reinforced by the November forum. The council also gave cost estimates to landowners, but did not have them available on its website. He advised landowners to fully discuss their applications with their consultants to under- stand the process. However staff could not guarantee application outcomes until they had all the infor- mation before them, he said. The Goulters engaged a professional and did their home- work. I guess when people go into any consent application they have to weigh up their chances of success, he said. Dennis said each application was taken on its own merit. But landowners also should be able to expect consistent adminis- tration of the council s plan.
