About the RMA Survey of Local Authorities

Between 1995 and 2014, 11 national surveys monitored local government implementation of the RMA. 

The survey was our principal source of information about RMA processes. It helped us monitor the implementation and operation of the RMA. This included reviewing how local authorities implemented both the RMA and recommended good practices. 

The survey did not measure the performance of the RMA in delivering better environmental outcomes. Nor did it measure how well individual councils delivered these outcomes. This occurs through state of the environment monitoring and reporting at both the national and local level.
