Tasman Environment Plan

We're reviewing our existing Resource Management Act plans and will be creating a new resource management plan, which we are calling the Tasman Environment Plan.

Home » My Council » Projects » Tasman Environment Plan

Tasman's key resource management plans are being reviewed. This project includes the Tasman Regional Policy Statement (TRPS) and the Tasman Resource Management Plan (TRMP - which includes our district, regional and regional coastal plans).  

The TRPS and TRMP provide a blueprint for where and how our communities will grow and how we manage natural resources.  More broadly, the plans set a number of rules and environmental bottom lines that affect people and businesses on a regular basis. 

As part of the plan review, the TRPS and TRMP will be combined into one new document - the Tasman Environment Plan.  The review is also an opportunity to create a new plan tht meets the requirements of the recently released National Planning Standards. 

This is a long term project - we expect it to take at least six years to complete.
