COES Founders April 2007

The founding of COES.

COES was formed in June 2006 to provide a legal vehicle for local residents to express their opposition to a proposed subdivision. During the process of getting involved with the local council’s democratic processes and the sly methods used by some applicants, we realized that we needed a legal entity to represent us in the courts.

We see ourselves as guardians of due process and common sense when it comes to resource consent applications. But we are also active in areas of the district plan (plan changes and plan reviews) and resource management act matters.
