We work with the community to promote the sustainable management of natural physical resources.
There are three key parts to our Regulatory Compliance work:
- Compliance monitoring of resource consents.
- Responding to environmental complaints.
- Enforcing compliance with the Resource Management Act 1991, our regional plans and with national regulations and standards.
The Resource Management Act sets out how we should manage our environment and forms the foundation for the majority of our work. Our Regulatory Compliance Team enforces this Act and does so by monitoring resource consents, checking activities comply with regional plan rules and using enforcement tools when conditions are breached. The team also provide technical advice around contaminated land, waste, wastewater and industrial processes.
