Introducing a faster, more consistent resource consent process 

Rico is cloud-based software used by Planners to prepare Resource Consent Applications / Assessments of Environmental Effects. 

How Rico works

A crystal clear picture of planning parameters on every project


Instead of wading through a myriad of tabs and Plan PDFs, Rico filters out the relevant planning rules and provisions for you, giving total transparency on planning issues and considerations when developing proposals.

Avoid getting stung by time delays and unnecessary iterations


Replace ad-hoc planning assessments and constant double-checking with a structured workflow that makes sure you’ve provided all the required information to Council on every resource consent application.

Streamline processing through Council

"I appreciate you allowing us the opportunity to review and provide input on your platform. We are supportive of industry-led innovation in making it easier for people to make quality applications, which enable local authorities to process effectively and efficiently, including minimising the need for further information requests."

-Ian Smallburn, General Manager Resource Consents, Auckland Council

Less report formatting, more actual assessments


Don’t waste time maintaining and adapting templates to new jobs. Rico automatically sets-up report templates for you and organises your Intellectual Property (e.g. existing planning assessments) into a template library that can be instantly imported into new projects.

Bring your work into the future


Rico provides best-in-industry practices, accessible from anywhere on the cloud. Ideal for boosting productivity and quality across teams and effectively enabling flexible work options.
