RMLA Awards Report 2000

The recipient of the 2000 RMLA Award was John Gallen, Chief Legal Counsel (now semi-retired) for the Ministry for the Environment.

In the words of the irrepressible Jim Hopkins, John was our first ‘Remarkable Remalan’ for the new millenium. John had a long and notable career as a Crown legal adviser on planning and environmental matters and has made a significant contribution to the introduction and development of the RMA over the last ten years.
