Tēnā koutou katoa,

Over the last year, the Government has been delivering on its promise to build a new resource management system that is fit for the future and provides better outcomes for our natural and built environments.  

There is an overwhelming consensus that the Resource Management Act (RMA) is simply not working as it was intended.  It has not adequately protected the environment nor enabled development where needed. There is an urgent need to address these issues and create a resource management system that protects and provides for the wellbeing of future generations.

We recognise that change can be challenging but it is vital that we continue to progress these reforms that are well overdue. This Government is committed to replacing the RMA with a Natural and Built Environments Act and a Strategic Planning Act (SPA) this parliamentary term.

As key stakeholders of the current and future resource management system, we want to share with you the progress that has been made and give you an opportunity to ask questions. 

The Ministry for the Environment invites you to attend one of two online information sessions about the reforms.

When: 2.30-3.30pm on either the 23rd or 30th of November
Where: Online via Zoom (Registration link below)

We will share the work we have done on the proposals for the key components of the system and the roles and responsibilities within it.

Ask us a Question – As part of the event we look forward to answering questions you may have about the new system.  You can send your questions in advance to RM.Reform@mfe.govt.nz – please reference ‘Questions for RM reform sector check in’ in the subject line.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, these information sessions will take place online.  To ensure there is space for as many people as possible to attend, please only register for the time and date that works best for you.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about these sessions.
