Crown RM Reform Engagement Hui

Kia ora koutou

We have been advised that Manatū mō te Taiao, Ministry for the Environment will be conducting hui, led by Hon Kiritapu Allan, in her capacity as the Associate Minister for the Environment. We have not been involved in organising these hui but we understand that the hui will be focused on the proposed reform of the Resource Management system.

As you will know, in 2019, the Government commissioned an expert review of the resource management system led by retired Court of Appeal Judge Hon Tony Randerson QC.

The Panel’s recommendations were informed by consultation, submissions and a series of regional hui in February 2020. The review led to the Panel’s report New Directions for Resource Management in New Zealand published in July 2020.

We understand that the focus of the hui is to seek your views on the recommendations related to Te Tiriti o Waitangi me te ao Māori.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Ngaa mihi, Donna
