Resource Management (Simplifying and Streamlining) Amendment Bill

Public submissions have been called on the Resource Management (Simplifying and Streamlining) Amendment Bill.

The closing date for submissions was Friday, 3 April 2009

The purpose of this Bill is to simplify and streamline the Resource Management Act 1991 (the RMA).

The changes focus on improving the quality and certainty of decisions, and reducing delays and costs by simplifying procedures and rationalising appeal processes, while ensuring penalties are sufficient to discourage inappropriate practices.

The bill is available for download from the `Related documents´ panel. Print copies can be ordered online from Bennetts Government Bookshops.

The committee requires 2 copies of each submission if made in writing. Those wishing to include any information of a private or personal nature in a submission should first discuss this with the clerk of the committee, as submissions are usually released to the public by the committee. Those wishing to appear before the committee to speak to their submissions should state this clearly and provide a daytime telephone contact number. To assist with administration please supply your postcode and an email address if you have one.

Further guidance on making a submission can be found from the Making a Submission to a Parliamentary Select Committee link in the in the ‘Related links’ panel.
