NZPI has provided feedback on the coalition government’s proposal to introduce a fast-track consenting bill, which builds on the process put in place during the pandemic.

This is initial feedback based on a high-level outline of the yet to be released fast-track bill, provided in a letter from the Minister on the 31st of January. An opportunity for more detailed feedback will be available once the bill is introduced to Parliament and referred to the Select Committee. Government has signalled that this will be in late March 2024.
