NZPI's Submission on the proposed National Policy Statement on Indigenous Biodiversity

Dear NZPI Members,

MfE has released a proposed National Policy Statement on Indigenous Biodiversity on which they are seeking feedback. The proposed NPS is intended to provide clearer direction to local authorities on their responsibilities for managing indigenous biodiversity under the RMA. It outlines policies and decision-making frameworks for the identification and management of indigenous biodiversity found outside the public conservation estate.

NZPI is seeking your feedback on the proposed NPS to develop a submission that reflects the views of its members. To do this, could you please send your feedback and comments on the submission by no later than close of business Friday 29 April 2011 to ( christina.kaiser@planning.org.nz).

Many thanks,
Christina Kaiser
Senior Policy Advisor
