Sean Marshall made this Official Information request to Ministry for the Environment

The request was refused by Ministry for the Environment.

Dear Ministry for the Environment,

What policy (if any) does the Ministry have for when you become aware that a local authority has failed to review their policy statements and plans as required by section 79 if the RMA?

Yours faithfully,

Sean Marshall
