Geothermal consents and reports
This quick guide provides information about what you, as a bore owner or manager, need to do.
You must provide certain information to us and you must notify us when a notifiable accident or dangerous incident occurs. The Geothermal Energy Regulations 1961(external link) (the Regulations) set out the specific consents you need before:
- starting drilling, suspending, or abandoning
- a bore
- using explosives
Apply for consent at least 30 days before any planned work consents by using the Details of Works Notice (DOWNs).
