We have been particularly concerned about recent suggestions, primarily from local government, that the Environment Court's role should be significantly curtailed, with appeals on district and regional plans only being permitted on points of law. With all these points in mind, we read the Second Report of the Land & Water Forum ("LAWF report") with considerable interest. Unfortunately, after having considered the LAWF report at some length, and while we support a number of the proposals for improving pre-notification consultation and engagement as they align with our own recommendations, we are unable to support the recommended framework for decision making. The Resource Management Partners have prepared a response highlighting their concerns with some elements of the LAWF report. You can view the response here.
