Finally government does the right thing for the environment with RMA Amendments - but still a few problems.

The report back toParliament of the Local Government and Environment Select Committee report on the Resource Management (Simplifying and Streamlining) Amendment Bill has occurred today.

Communities and business interests will still be able to participate in shaping plans that guide development in regions and districts. The RMA retains its participatory and democratic approach to plan making.
