Review of all Operative Plans in NZ

The planning team at GNS Science has released two new reports, including:

  1. An analysis of natural hazard provisions in operative plans.  This involved analysing 99 regional policy statements, district plans and CDEM Group plans - quite a task, with interesting results!

  2. Petone Plan Change 29.  This report outlines how important the submission process is in influencing policy changes in an area susceptible to a range of natural hazards.
