Public decision making newsletter - Winter edition 2016

Litigation Update


The Winter Edition 2016 of our Public Decision Making newsletter is the fourth 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 significant legislative changes in respect of earthquake-prone buildings under the Building Act 2004 and the New Zealand Fire Service, as well as the legality of district plan rules requiring ‘framework’ plans and the available considerations when recommending special housing areas.
