GOTB has made a limited submission in support of the Proposed Change 1 to the Regional Policy Statement which focuses on climate change, biodiversity, and freshwater. It lays the ground for achieving carbon net-zero by 2050. The main changes are to implement and support the National Policy Statement on Urban Development 2020 (NPS-UD) and to start the implementation of the National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management 2020 (NPS-FM).
Further information can be found on the Greater Wellington website including our submission.
A period of further submissions supporting or opposing submissions will take place in late November 2022
