* An applicant may elect not to proceed with an application to the EPA under fast-track, even if eligible to do so, for many reasons, such as electing to proceed under another consenting pathway such as the Resource Management Act 1991, or because the scope and timing of the project has changed.

** This application will be lodged in two parts.

*** Applications currently being checked to determine whether they meet the requirements under Clause 3(1) of Schedule 6 of the COVID-19 Recovery (Fast-track Consenting) Act 2020. Once the EPA is satisfied an application complies with the requirements, the application documents will be uploaded to the website.
