Changes to the conservation status of DoC administered lands
The request was refused by Department of Conservation.
From: Steph Borrelle
Dear Department of Conservation,
I would like to request under the Official Information Act a list of all changes made to the conservation status of public conservation land in New Zealand in the ten years between September 2004 and August 2014.
Conservation land refers to all land administered by the Department of Conservation including, but not limited to, areas defined in Schedule 4 of the Crown Minerals Act 1991.
Changes to conservation status include:
1) any direct alterations classification of the land’s specified conservation status/classification that would result in changes to land use (i.e. reserve formation).
2) any alterations to permitted activities or land purpose that do not otherwise fall under 1) (i.e. changes to access, or activities permitted within the area).
3) any alterations to land use that have been initiated by legislative change (e.g. West Coast Wind-blown Timber (Conservation Lands) Act, which permits a new activity in certain West Coast conservation lands).
I would like the location, date of change, original and modified classification (or land use/activity as appropriate), and area of land affected by the change.
