Government to reverse key aspects of RLAA

In an interview with Stuff this week, Environment Minister David Parker stated the government’s intent to reverse the National-led Resource Legislation Amendment Act.

He told Stuff reporters that National’s decision to remove public notification and appeal rights was going “a step too far” for applicants and submitters.

“We are intending to have some reform of the Resource Management Act and that would be one of the things that we would fix,” he said.

The Resource Legislation Amendment Act gained royal assent on April 18 and came into effect on October 18 this year.
