Take your resource consent preparation to the next level

Rico is cloud-based software for planning due diligence and preparing RC Applications / Assessments of Environmental Effects (AEEs) 

How Rico works

Cut out mundane work and focus on planning/client outcomes 


Planners using Rico estimate it saves an average of 35% of the time spent assessing proposals and preparing applications* by streamlining the repetitive work involved in templates and manual assessments that isn’t worth your time.

Consistently nail the details and make council processing as easy as possible

Our system for detecting and documenting considerations and rules and provisions assessments leaves 100% of planners using Rico more confident they’ve covered everything* while conveying information in a clear council-friendly format.

"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

Keep your own unique approach with fully customisable workflows and reports

Rico can be tailored to your assessment style, templates and so you achieve a totally personalised result while extending your capabilities with the full benefits technology has to offer.

Leverage templates and exemplar assessments like never before 


Intellectual Property (IP) like exemplar assessments and templates often remain underutilised across past reports. Rico collates your IP into a library so relevant responses can be pulled into projects in a few clicks.

-Delilah McIntyre, Intermediate Planner


"If you are preparing resource consent applications and you are considering using Rico, you should 100% use it."

“I admit I was a bit hesitant to try out the new template and system initially (being a bit of a technophobe), but with the rural applications I have recently been lodging, it has been amazing. It has made the process so much quicker and ensures I cover off all relevant standards.”

-Sarah Hart, Resource Consent Planner
