The way in which RMA plans are written can greatly affect their efficiency, effectiveness, and ease of administration and enforcement. Writing an effective, enforceable and user-friendly plan requires robust processes to be followed, skill, and attention to detail. This guidance note is a companion guidance note to 'Structuring and Organising Regional and District Plans' and provides a starting point for those writing provisions.
A checklist is provided for practitioners involved in writing plan provisions. The example checklist is designed to be adapted by individual local authorities to meet their particular drafting requirements and practices and could form part of an internal plan drafting guideline or protocol.
