Managing our Network
If you intend to extract timber, gravel or other resources, then you may need to let Council know.
Why? The extraction of gravel, timber or other resources via road can have impacts on the road over and above what Council has anticipated. If you will generate more than 80 heavy vehicle movements in a month or 210 heavy vehicle movements in a year, then we need to know.
How? Before you plan to extract these resources, we need plenty of warning so that our roading engineers can assess the impact on roads that will be used. We require at least 18 months notice and there is a Heavy Vehicle Impact Notice that you can complete and return to Council for this.
If you do not notify us 18 months before the activity and you are over the threshold for heavy vehicle movements, you will have to go through a resource consent process.
Failure to notify Council places other road users at risk and may result in roads being damaged beyond repair!
