Issues and plan evaluation (s32) reports

Updated 30 June 2017 2:58pm

Under section 32 of the RMA, any proposed plan change must be accompanied by a report that assesses both the extent to which each objective is the most appropriate way to achieve the purpose of the Act, and whether the proposed policies and methods are the most appropriate way in which to achieve the objectives in terms of their efficiency and effectiveness. A series of topic-based section 32 reports have been prepared and published alongside the proposed Plan for all the objectives, policies, and methods, including rules. See the Introduction to the Resource Management Act 1991 Section 32 reports for more information.
