Recommendation

Deliver reasonable environmental limits and targets in the Natural and Built Environments legislation

Section: 7.3. An enabling planning and consenting framework

How

Steps to achieve this recommendation include:

  1. Focusing on environmental limits and targets for matters sustaining life (for example air, water, soil and biodiversity) rather than human values and preferences (for example heritage, character and amenity).
  2. Standardising national minimum environmental limits.

Where possible, ensure that environmental limits are measurable, targeted and quantifiable.
