Our natural environment is one of the things that makes New Zealand special. It gives us the unique quality of life that makes us the envy of the world and indeed even our economy depends on it.
The Resource Management Act (RMA) is a set of laws that’s designed to protect all that. But the current Government plans to strip out the core principles of the RMA - the bits that actually protect our environment and give you a say in what happens in your backyard. Disguised as ‘removing red tape’, this is about re-writing laws to suit big business, and removing your right to have a say in what happens.
