Drawing on best practice international examples, and to provide a basis for preparing submissions relating to our rapidly changing planning system, NZPI has embarked on a programme of policy position development. Drafts are prepared drawing on relevant international best practice, and these are modified after consultation with members to fit the NZ context. Policy positions have been prepared on Rapid Urban Development; Climate Change; and Spatial Planning.
