Looking for help with Plan Changes?

Changes to existing plans (district and regional) are a common feature of the RMA system. Plan changes are often used to introduce new, innovative resource or place-based approaches to managing RMA issues. The RMA requires a wide range of tests to be undertaken on plan changes, and now provides for a number of routes for plan changes to be prepared. Hill Young Cooper has extensive experience in the preparation and review of plan changes, including section 32 analysis,  drafting new provisions, testing whether proposed provisions integrate with existing higher order plans and preparing and analysing submissions to plan changes.  Often there is a need to translate complex, technical requirements into workable and defendable plan provisions.  Please contact David Mead (021 440 961) if you need assistance.
