Feedback on the revised National Environmental Standard for Plantation Forestry proposal

This page outlines the feedback received in 2011 on the revised policy of the proposed National Environmental Standard for Plantation Forestry.

Feedback sought

In late May to early June 2011 the Ministry for the Environment called for comments on the revised policy of the proposed National Environmental Standard for Plantation Forestry (NES). The comments phase was designed to give existing submitters and iwi authorities the chance to have a say on the revised proposal.

The Ministry held three workshops for submitters and iwi authorities in late May 2011 in Wellington, Rotorua and Nelson to provide an overview of the proposed changes to the policy. Sixty two parties commented on the revised policy. 

Comments were received from:

  • local government (18)
  • the forestry sector (18)
  • individuals (8)
  • iwi
  • non-government organisations
  • other industries
  • a political party
  • a Crown Research Institute and
  • a joint submission from a regional council and forestry companies.

Figure 1 shows the proportions of comments by category (the number indicates the number of comments that was received in that category).
