Resource Management System: A comprehensive review


The Government is undertaking a comprehensive review of the resource management system with a focus on the RMA.

This is an opportunity to design a system that delivers better outcomes for the environment, people and the economy. To be successful, we need to design a resource management system that responds to our distinct environmental, social and cultural context.

This includes:

  • New Zealand’s physical characteristics and unique biodiversity
  • the Treaty and the relationship between iwi/Māori and the Crown
  • the significant ways we all value and connect with the environment.

The Resource Management Review Panel is leading the review.
