RMLA Taranaki : Transforming the resource management system – Opportunities for change!
The Taranaki Branch of the RMLA would like to invite you to a consultation and discussion session on the issues and options paper recently released by the Resource Management Review Panel. The link to the paper is below.
Much has changed in Aotearoa New Zealand in the period of nearly 30 years since the Resource Management Act was introduced in 1991. Serious challenges have emerged in our ability to respond quickly to urban development pressures and to house our people in liveable communities. And we are facing a significant new threat in dealing with climate change.
The time is ripe to undertake a comprehensive review of the Resource Management Act and other significant legislation comprising the resource management system. The Resource Management Review Panel has been established to undertake that task. The overall aim is to improve environmental outcomes and enable better and timely development in urban areas and elsewhere within environmental limits. It is an exciting and ambitious assignment and an opportunity to undertake a thorough examination of the resource management system. This may well result in recommendations for far-reaching reform designed to achieve our ultimate goal of enabling all New Zealanders to thrive in a healthy environment both now and for generations to come.
The Resource Management Review Panel are calling for feedback from regional branches by 5pm Friday 13th December. To meet this timeframe we have scheduled a discussion session for Monday 9th December 2019, the details are below.
Drink and nibbles will be provided to stimulate discussions.
When: 09 December 2019
Time: 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Where: Govett Quilliam Boardroom
