Manawatu District Council Goes Live with eRCS®
Manawatu District Council is the first council to start using the Lodgement Module of our eRCS® as from 23rd March, 2020 and the Monitoring Module as from 1st May 2020.
In a statement, the Council says that, “As part of our on-going commitment to innovation and making our doing business with Council easier we have put our Resource Consent application process online.
From today anybody requiring a resource consent can do so through our website, removing the need for visiting and bringing paper requests to the council offices.
This system is customer facing allowing applicants and agents to prepare resource consent applications and lodge them online.
There are definite advantages to being online says council's regulatory manager Karel Boakes.”
The advantages of the new system empowers the Manawatū District Council and our customers to work collaboratively and transparently, making the process easier and more efficient.”
“The new system is a result of engagement with key industry stakeholders and the final result is based on the feedback received from these stakeholders following a pilot release.”
“ The benefits of this electronic application for the applicants are:
• Convenience - applicants can lodge applications any time of the week and day
• Reduced cost - eliminates the costs of printing documentation
• Transparency - online tracking of the consenting process”
