Produced by a group of leading planning academics and practitioners, Planning Practice in New Zealand is written with an emphasis on clarity and brevity. Structured in three parts, the book offers practical guidance on the multitude of issues planners deal with on a daily basis, including examples that provide the context for the issues discussed.
It begins by introducing the history of planning practice, going on to discuss the legislative structures through which plans and planning administration are delivered in New Zealand. It then addresses the practice of planning, providing detailed guidance on the RMA and associated planning processes, including resource consents, enforcement, and the appeal process. Finally, Planning Practice in New Zealand focuses on topics such as planning under the Local Government Act 2002; natural hazards planning; Māori and planning; rural planning; planning and urban design; transportation planning; planning and urban land economics; heritage; and subdivision.
The book concludes with an examination of what makes good professional practice and how to practise as an ethical and professional planner in New Zealand, as well as a new chapters on climate change, which is of increasing importance to New Zealand’s development.
Planning Practice in New Zealand is the ‘go to source’ for planning practitioners, students, and practitioners in allied professions from architecture to valuation, and any non-professional seeking a comprehensive overview of planning as it is practiced in New Zealand.
