Black ice is present throughout the network following recent rainfall. We expect it to affect our roads for the rest of the week. Grit trucks are currently patrolling and gritting priority roads and will work through the network as they can. Updates available on our Facebook page.

Duty Planner

Our QLDC Duty Planner is here to help. They are available to provide 10 minutes free assistance for the following types of queries:

  • Confirmation of the zoning of a property
  • Providing interpretation assistance of District Plan provisions (rules, objectives and policies)
  • Providing an outline of the resource consent process
  • Providing assistance in relation to a s37 notice on a building consent

Should you have inquiries that fall outside the scope of the Duty Planner service or require more than the allocated 10 minutes for a thorough response, we suggest engaging an independent planning consultant who should be able to provide more detailed and tailored assistance for your specific situation.

The Duty Planner cannot provide legal advice, advice on the likelihood of obtaining resource consent, or detailed information on what consents are required, but we can direct you towards the relevant parts of the District Plan that may apply. 

If you have a query about any of the above for the Duty Planner please complete the below form and we’ll come back to you as soon as possible.  

If you would like to chat with a Duty Planner in person, you may do so at the following times:


Wednesday’s, 10am - 2pm
