Welcome back to our bite sized blog series about recent changes to the RMA and what they mean for Regular People. This is a very short vocabulary post, with a Bonus Activity Status Diagram to print out and stick on your fridge (using that magnet you got from a street market in Wellington that says "It's martini o'clock!" even though I don't need reminding).
The Resource Legislation Amendment Act 2017 (RLAA) was adopted by the New Zealand government in April 2017. It contains changes to 5 different Acts, one of which is the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA). Some of the changes to the RMA happened immediately, and others will go live in October 2017.
- publicly notified (everyone gets a chance to give feedback)
- limited notified (directly affected people get to give feedback), or
- non-notified (public feedback isn’t sought)
We’ll refer to these concepts in our next post, so save the fancy diagram somewhere, bookmark this post, or grab this pdf... and pass the olives.
