Resource Management Review Panel announced

David Parker has announced the Resource Management Review Panel for the comprehensive review of the RMA announced by Government in July.

While it is disappointing that the Panel lacks developers, the appointed panellists are high-calibre experts in planning, environmental management, resource management law, te ao Māori, local government and infrastructure development and look forward to working with the Panel to ensure any new policy is able to be implemented in practice as well as on paper.

The Chair, Hon Tony Randerson QC, will be joined by: 
Amelia Linzey, who is a leading resource management planner and the Senior Technical Director of the planning team at engineering and planning consultancy Beca.
Dean Kimpton, who has been the Chief Operating Officer at Auckland Council and Managing Director at engineering and planning consultancy AECOM.
Kevin Prime MBE ONZM, who is a Commissioner with the Environment Court as well as a farmer, forester, and conservationist in Northland.
Rachel Brooking, who is a Senior Associate of law firm Anderson Lloyd specialising in environmental and local government legislation. 
Raewyn Peart MNZM, who has significance experience in environmental law and is currently the Policy Director at the Environmental Defence Society.

Their appointments are in place until 30 June 2020.
Details of the consultation meetings, discussion documents and information on all the consultations are available on the MfE website.
