NRMP 9 October 2018 Amendments
The 9 October 2018 amendments provide for the following:
- National Environment Standards – Plantation Forestry (NES-PF)
The Ministry for Primary Industries has developed National Environmental Standards for Plantation Forestry (NES-PF) and these come into effect on 1 May 2018. National Environmental Standards (NES) are regulations made under the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA). The NES-PF provides a single set of regulations which apply to commercial forests that are at least 1 hectare of continuous forest cover, throughout New Zealand. The Nelson Resource Management Plan (NRMP), which is currently under review through the Nelson Plan process, has been amended to align with the new requirements of the NES-PF.
