New directions for resource management in New Zealand

Publication date:  July 2020

New Directions for Resource Management in New Zealand is a comprehensive review of New Zealand’s resource management system.

The review process was an opportunity to design a new system for resource management that delivers better outcomes for our environment, society, economy, and culture. The Resource Management Review Panel has come up with a large number of recommendations that will reorient the system to focus on delivery of specified outcomes, targets and limits in the natural and built environments. 

This review was conducted by the independent Resource Management Review Panel chaired by retired Court of Appeal Judge, Hon Tony Randerson, QC.
