Protecting Our Areas of Regional Interest: Is the RPI Act achieving its aims?
The Regional Planning Interests Act 2014 (RPI Act) seeks to strike an appropriate balance between protecting priority land uses and delivering a diverse and prosperous economic future for our regions.
Five years since its implementation, is the RPI Act achieving this balance?
The RPI Act seeks to provide regulatory oversight to resource and other activities that may impact on declared priority living areas, strategic cropping land, priority agricultural areas and strategic environmental areas; integrating policies from the repealed Strategic Cropping Land Act 2011 and Wild Rivers Act 2005.
In addition, the RPI Act provides the framework for implementing various policies of the government's statutory regional plans.
