Standardise the planning policies of regional and district plans. This should:
- Establish national uniform definitions for land use policy.
- Develop a National Planning Framework that appropriately standardises rules, with local authorities required to adopt these rules with limited variations.
- Make consistent provision for papakāinga housing on Māori land and other forms of community housing.
- Merge regional and district plans into a smaller number of combined plans.
