PM2: EFFECTIVE PLAN MAKING
This one day course is focussed on those involved
in plan drafting. Using a range of teaching techniques, it is designed to
provide the participants with a good understanding of how to prepare effective
s32 evaluations and draft plans that are easy to understand, structurally sound
and achieve their intended outcomes in practice.
The workshop learns on lessons affirmed by the Supreme Court through the King Salmon decision and consider how we write policy in a post-Davidson world. It takes you step-by-step through the plan drafting process, showing how using s32 throughout the process is best practice and results in clearly drafted provisions and reflecting on the lessons that we have learnt through case law.
The workshop includes techniques for determining if the outcomes were achieved and potential barriers to plan quality using a case study examining the landscape and ecology provisions in three different plans through a series of 24 case studies. It draws on Gina’s extensive experience, and covers drafting in a post-National Planning Standard world, the 2017 amendment to the RMA, treaty legislation, case law and case studies from plan drafting, including:
· EDS vs King Salmon 2014
· Suburban Estates Ltd vs Christchurch CC 2001
