National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management 2011 Implementation Guide

The National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management 2011: Implementation Guide is now available on the Ministry for the Environment’s website.

The guide has been developed with input from a range of people and organisations who will have a role in implementing the NPS. It provides background information and commentary on the intent of the Freshwater Management NPS. Its principal aim is to help local authorities in considering how the NPS’s key messages, concepts and directions should be implemented.
