This dataset was last updated on MfE Data Service on 09 Aug 2020.

The NMS dataset is compiled, from data supplied by Local Authorities (Regional, Unitary, and Territorial Councils), by the Ministry for the Environment.
Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this data, the Ministry makes no representations or warranties about its accuracy, reliability, completeness or suitability for any particular purpose and disclaims all responsibility and all liability (including without limitation, liability in negligence) for all expenses, losses, damages (including indirect or consequential damage) and costs which you might incur as a result of the product being inaccurate or incomplete in any way or for any reason.
All datasets are updated as new information becomes available.

All resource consent applications or reviews granted, declined, found incomplete, returned or withdrawn by local authorities from 2014/15 to 2018/19.
The Ministry for the Environment collects and compiles this data from New Zealand’s 78 Regional Councils, Territorial Authorities and Unitary Authorities as part of the National Monitoring System (NMS) for the Resource Management Act.
The NMS monitors implementation of the RMA by local authorities and includes information on planning, consenting, monitoring and enforcement.
Most of the questions asked in the NMS are the same from year to year. Some are added or dropped as information requirements change.
A data dictionary is attached which describes the data collected about resource consent applications over time. The most recent (2018/19) data collection template and a guidance document to councils about how to fill out the collection template are also attached.
Further information on the NMS and the dataset can be located on the Ministry website -
