Dear Matthew Official information request
We refer to your official information request dated 22 September 2016 for information regarding the
alternative dispute resolution mechanism within the Resource Management Act (RMA).
Mediations under Schedule 1 cl 8AA RMA
There have been no Regional Policy Statement plan changes in the last three years. Therefore the
outlined mediation process outlined in Schedule 1 clause 8AA of the RMA has not been utilised by the
Waikato Regional Council.
Mediations under s99A RMA
There are no known instances of Waikato Regional Council having used s99A of the RMA since the
mechanism has been available.
If you wish to discuss your request with us, please feel free to contact Catherine Robinson on 0800 800
