Resource Management

The Government plans to repeal the Resource Management Act and replace it with three new Acts to create a new resource management system.

In February 2021 the Government announced that the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA) will be repealed and replaced with three new Acts. These are:

  • Natural and Built Environments Act (NBA) to provide for land use and environmental regulation (this would be the primary replacement for the RMA)
  • Strategic Planning Act (SPA) to integrate with other legislation relevant to development, and require long-term regional spatial strategies
  • Climate Change Adaptation Act (CAA) to address complex issues associated with managed retreat and funding and financing adaptation.
