RMA changes


While almost all agree that the RMA needs a major overhaul, the powersthat­be in the Beehive need to be very careful, with their current centralisa­tion thinking, that they do not take the ‘‘local’’ out of local government. — Roger Cotton

A more regional approach to most issues, more regional consistenc­y, and less bureaucrac­y will all be good things. Future airport and land transport planning will be far more effectivel­y managed on a regional basis. — Jon Mitchell
