|Text||Natural Resource Allocation|
Provisions relating to the allocation of natural resources have been clarified by the Resource Management Amendment Act 2005. Resources dealt with include:
These provisions will give direction to consent authorities dealing with problems of allocating finite resources, and trying to balance the rights of existing consent holders with the desire of 'new entrants' to gain access to them.
More detail is now given in the Act regarding transfer of water and discharge permits.
MFE's Improving Natural Resource Allocation factsheet gives more details on these provisions.
