The city council's seeking to retrieve more than $7000 in unpaid consent fees.
Locals involved in four different consent applications have failed to pay the full amount billed by the council.
A hearing is being held next Monday for each case to be considered.
One involves the creation of industrial sites in Burnside.
Another relates to the subdivision of a Tanner Road section.
Almost half the money owed is for a Kaikorai Valley Road development.
The other case involves breaches of consent conditions at an Arthur Street property.
