Public decision making newsletter - Autumn edition 2016

Litigation Update


Welcome to the Autumn Edition 2016 of our Public Decision Making newsletter, the third in our series of quarterly newsletters that summarise recent developments in resource management and local government law that are of particular relevance to local authorities and decision makers.

In this edition, we address the role of the expert planner in deciding the ultimate issue, the scope of a territorial authority's duty to recognise and protect matters of national importance in its district plan, the required scope of assessment for the notification of restricted discretionary activities, the Privacy and Online Property Information Report 2016, the liability for project managers carrying out building work without a building consent and the next steps for freshwater management.

If you have any questions, or require further information regarding any aspect of this newsletter, please contact us.
