What the Government is doing about the Resource Management System

The resource management system governs how people interact with natural resources. As well as managing air, soil, freshwater and the coastal marine area, laws like the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA) regulate land use and the provision of infrastructure. People can use natural resources if it’s allowed under the RMA or permitted by a resource consent.
