Productivity report: Better urban planning

This is a report from the New Zealand Productivity Commission on the state of New Zealand’s urban planning laws and makes interesting reading.

The terms of reference for this inquiry invite the Commission to identify the most appropriate system for allocating land use in cities. This includes the processes that are currently undertaken through the Resource Management Act, the Local Government Act and the Land Transport Management Act. The inquiry will look beyond the existing planning system and provide a framework for assessing future planning reforms.
