Detail of outcome
We received 49 responses to this consultation.
We are holding a short consultation in April 2018 on the infrastructure types and sizes that will be included in the Planning Act 2008.
Later in 2018 we will also hold a formal consultation on the draft National Policy Statement.
We want to know what you think about our approach to developing a national policy statement for water resources. The statement will simplify the process of gaining planning consents for large water infrastructure projects.
We are also presenting options on the sizes and types of infrastructure which could lead to changes in the Planning Act 2008 thresholds. We are calling for relevant evidence to support options.
