Regional integrated planning framework development

As the first phase in our work towards an integrated planning framework, we are reviewing the Regional Policy Statement with a view to notifying a draft RPS by the end of 2024.  

We are currently considering which other plans may need to be reviewed or amended, and in what order, as part of our long-term planning process in 2024 and with respect to known or pending changes in the national direction.

Find out more about the planning framework development, who the plan review will affect and how it fits with existing plans and policies.
