8. Conclusions

This analysis has been limited by incomplete information. Ideally, there would be better information available to be able to assess the marginal difference between current practice and what this NPS requires. Such information is, however, difficult to acquire. Such is the nature of planning-relevant data in a highly devolved management system such as exists in New Zealand.

Notwithstanding an absence of complete information, on the basis of what is known there is a prima facie case that the tests of section 32 requiring objectives and policies to be appropriate in regard to effectiveness and efficiency can be met.
