Project Description

The aim of the study is to examine the differing perspectives of the assessment of environmental effects (AEE) process held by major groups within the system, in particular planners, surveyors, environmental managers and environmental lawyers. The views will be compared, and evaluated against the principles and purpose of the Resource Management Act 1991, and against internationally recognised good practice principles for impact assessment. It is envisaged that it will then be possible to determine the extent of divergence in practitioner views of AEE since 1991, and suggest steps to move towards a single, widely supported model of the process to be followed.
