Welcome to the New Zealand Environment Guide. This site contains practical information to assist individuals, community groups and businesses to more effectively participate in environmental management processes.

There have been a number of legislative and regulatory changes since this website was developed. Work is underway to incorporate these updates.

The content of this site has been professionally peer reviewed. Nonetheless we recommend seeking professional legal advice when contemplating litigation. 

The Ministry for the Environment provided a financial contribution towards the updating of this Guide, however the content and views expressed in this Guide are those of EDS.
