Company Profile

Resource Management Solutions Ltd (RMS) is a resource management and planning consultancy based in Auckland, New Zealand.  Since 1996 we have worked with clients to advise and steer them through the resource consenting process, including the preparation of resource consent applications and Assessments of Environmental Effects.  We are also skilled in development feasibility and due diligence investigations, policy development and review, private plan changes, district plan change submissions, as well as many other resource management related tasks.

Our staff of specialist planners have development and consenting experience across a wide range of development types including dwellings, apartments, commercial and industrial buildings, public infrastructure projects, and coastal development projects. We also have personnel qualified in landscape architecture and visual impact assessment.

Our approach is always outcome focused and we work closely with clients and advisors to ensure successful planning outcomes. At an early stage we like to develop a sound understanding of our clients’ interests and needs and combine this with our extensive experience and sound judgment of what will ‘fly’ and what will not to guide the development through the consenting process.

We know that fundamentally we have a good understanding of what planning, resource management and sustainability is about.  That allows us to argue vehemently in support of our clients proposals and to consider different ways of achieving client objectives without taking our eye off the principles of sustainability.

We bring to each new project our experience gained from previous projects.  Visit our project page and you will realise the extensive experience we have.  Added to this is our collaborative work ethic, our policy background, and our extensive overseas planning and resource management experience which allows us to ‘see the wood for the trees’.

Don’t be put off contacting us for assistance because your project isn’t a large development.  While we have worked on many significant projects over the years we have also enjoyed adding value to small scale developments.  For us the satisfaction of assisting clients to fulfil their project aspirations, whether large or small, is the reason we are in business.


Since 1996 we have achieved a success rate of over 98% for obtaining resource consents for our clients.  Obtaining that level of certainty and comfort for our clients is something that we are extremely proud of, and is all the more spectacular given the uncertainties within the resource management and planning environment.

Our success comes with a bonus. Most of the resource consents have been non-notified, representing significant savings for our clients in terms of cost and peace of mind.
