Envirostrat prepared a review for the West Coast Regional Council, in consultation with the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE), and Ngati Waewae as part of a programme of work known as ‘One Window’. The review identifies concrete actions to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of minerals permitting / consenting for all participants in the process, including regulators, industry, iwi, and interested stakeholders. Following an extensive look into the efficiency of the existing permit requirements, Envirostrat produced a number of recommendations relating to coordination, standardisation and delegation to improve the minerals permitting process for all involved.
