Plan Making

  • Plan Components – everything from historic heritage to surface water quality

  • Plan Steps – the entire process from start to finish

  • Plan Topics – information to assist planning for industries and sectors


The first set of National Planning Standards have recently been released. Quality Planning guidance will be updated to reflect the planning standards and the implications that these will have for writing plans, plan-making processes and plan topics. In the meantime, see First set of planning standards and supporting material [Ministry for the Environment website].
