If your current resource consent is due to expire, we are able to work with you to undertake the process of renewing your consent. Ideally the sooner you can plan for your consent renewal the better, and where possible you should look to lodge any application for renewal at least six months prior to expiry to ensure that you can continue to operate under your existing consents until such time as a decision is made by the consent authority in relation to the application to renew the consent.
Once you have obtained your consents there are often a number of conditions of consent which you are then required to comply with. Depending on the number and nature of the conditions, ensuring compliance with them can be a daunting and time consuming task. At Landpro we are able to manage your consent compliance requirements, ensuring that the relevant regulations, management plans and other obligations have been met and are continued to be met to ensure that you are operating in full compliance with your approvals.
Farm Management Plans are now considered to be an essential farm management tool. Our team are very well placed to prepare your farm management plans on your behalf, and we regularly do so as part of the dairy conversion or irrigation management process. We work collaboratively with you and your other consultants such as accounts or farm advisors to pull together a sound working document tailored for your specific farming scenario.
When you are working with water, be it groundwater or surface water, you require the expertise of a hydrologist both in ensuring that your proposed water take is capable of sustaining the required yield, and for ensuring that there are no effects of your water take on other water users. Our hydrologists are able to guide you on the appropriate location for establishing your bore, prepare pump test plans, coordinate pump tests, undertake aquifer analysis and assessment of effects.
