where are we now?

The Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA) requires all councils to start a review of their District Plan 10 years after it was made operative. The RMA requires the District Plan to sustainably manage the natural and physical resources of the District to meet the needs of current and future generations and to provide for their social, economic and cultural well-being and for their health and safety.

Reviewing the District Plan involves looking at the Plan we’ve got now. Does it need changing? Are there new issues to deal with? Or new rules from parliament we have to put in our Plan? The answer is, YES, there are new issues to look at and new rules and regulations to obey.
