Learn what the Aorere ki uta, Aorere ki tai - Tasman Environment Plan covers.
Tasman is a special place to live. At Tasman District Council, we're working with communities on a new resource management plan that will help keep it special for generations to come. We're calling this plan Aorere ki uta, Aorere ki tai - Tasman Environment Plan.
The Tasman Environment Plan will replace our existing resource management plans, the Tasman Regional Policy Statement and the Tasman Resource Management Plan.
In late 2020, locals shared their experiences and views on the district’s environmental and development issues and opportunities through this website and 21 community-based events. Thank you to everyone who took part in this first round of engagement. Our policy planners have processed your feedback and been defining and investigating issues and options, gathering relevant technical information, and working with landowners on mapping that supports the plan.
We will be back talking to our communities again this year (2022) about our draft options for how we grow as a district while caring for our environment. You can read feedback we've received and more about specific projects here.

Early ideas received on the future of Richmond South - Hope
Tasman's population is growing. As a council, it’s our job to work with communities, iwi, and stakeholders to plan for quality sustainable housing and infrastructure for all who want to live here.
Thank you to everyone who recently shared views and ideas for the future of the area south of Richmond towards Hope, as part of our Reimagining Richmond South project.
We recently held two interactive geological hazards community webinars where we provided information around Council's slope instability hazards review and associated mapping, a review of active earthquake faults within our district, and district-wide seismic liquefaction hazard mapping.
This information will help inform the Tasman Environment Plan.

Following a review commissioned in 2019, the Government has decided to repeal and replace the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA). The RMA is New Zealand's principal legislation for environmental management and provides the framework under which our local resource management plans are developed. The RMA will be replaced with three new Acts; the Natural and Built Environments Act, the Strategic Planning Act, and the Climate Change Adaption Act.
The new laws will aim to improve the natural environment, enable more development within environmental limits, provide an effective role for Māori, and improve housing supply and affordability. The changes also seek to reduce and simplify planning processes, time, and costs.
Council’s Environmental Policy Team are actively working through what the new legislation will mean for us here in Tasman. It's important we have strong knowledge of our local issues and options so that we're well prepared to respond to future legislative changes. We will continue to work with our communities through the Tasman Environment Plan project to better understand our District's key challenges and opportunities for managing our environment, providing for development, and building resilience. The next major stage of proactive community engagement on Tasman District issues and options is planned for late 2022.
