Structure of regional plan and policy statements

Publication date:  May 2017
Publication reference number:  ME 1297

There is variation across regional plans and inconsistencies with structure, format, terminology and map layers used in regional plans. This paper signals a preference for a combined structure incorporating the Regional Policy Statement, regional plans and coastal plan into one document.

Initial feedback on the papers closed on 31 July 2017. There will be an opportunity to make a formal submission once the Standards are formally notified in April 2018.
