Section 32AA evaluation report: For proposed amendments to the National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management 2014

Publication date:  August 2017
Publication reference number:  ME 1321

A s32 report evaluates whether the objectives of the proposals are the most appropriate way to achieve the purpose of the Resource Management Act 1991, and whether the proposed amendments are the most appropriate way to achieve those objectives. It examines a range of matters prescribed by the Act, including the costs and benefits of proposals, providing a level of detail that corresponds to the scale and significance of proposals.

This is an evaluation under s32AA of the Resource Management Act 1991, and further evaluates any changes to amendments proposed in the Clean Water discussion document since the initial s32 evaluation (published February 2017).
