EDS has recently undertaken a comprehensive review of its Environment Guide website: http://www.environmentguide.org.nz/
“The Environment Guide is an online guide providing reliable information about the Resource Management Act 1991 and other environmental legislation. It is written in plain language and is easy to use, making it a great source for those wanting to participate more effectively in environmental decision-making processes,” said EDS Solicitor Cordelia Woodhouse.
“The last substantial update of the Environment Guide was undertaken in 2018. Since that time there have been significant changes in the law.
“At a high level, changes were made to incorporate the following instruments:

“Changes to resource management system are occurring at significant pace and further changes to the Guide will be required to ensure it is kept up to date. Most notably, updates will be required once the Natural and Built Environment Act is passed,” Ms Woodhouse concluded.
