Regional Plan Review
We're developing a new regional plan to look after the environment and we've been getting people's views on the rules, policies and methods needed in the plan to better protect our environment.
We have made a series of short videos that help to explain our ideas for managing natural resources and provide an opportunity for you to give feedback.
View the video below for an overview of the Regional Plan process:

We held community workshops in 2010 and again late last year to get people's view on the environment, and their feedback on our draft issues and goals.
The public engagement report 2011 summarises the view of people who attended public workshops, stakeholder meetings and iwi workshops, or who responded to our online survey in 2011.
The The public engagement report 2010 analyses the results of the public workshops, iwi meetings and online survey from stage 1 of our regional plan engagement in 2010.
From 26 November to 6 December 2012 we held a series of public presentations around the region on progress to develop a regional plan and our ideas for managing for managing natural resources. You can view short videos on our ideas and give your feedback by going to the content at the top of this page under the heading "What's happening now?".

Greater Wellington has produced five regional plans: Regional Coastal Plan, a Regional Freshwater Plan, a Regional Soil Plan, a Regional Air Quality Management Plan and a Regional Plan for Discharges to Land
Regional policy statements must also be prepared for each region. They enable regional councils to provide broad direction and a framework for resource management within their regions. The Regional Council has developed a Proposed Regional Policy statement which will replace the existing Regional Policy Statement.
