New Regional Policy Statement
The Regional Policy Statement (RPS) provides a broad direction and framework for managing Northland's natural and physical resources. These include land, water, air, soil, minerals, plants, animals and all built structures. The current RPS is now 10 years old. This project involves the development of a new RPS which takes into account some important changes that have happened over the last decade.
Consent orders on the various matters of appeal are now available.
The Hearing Commissioners' recommendations presented to council for adoption are available from here.
