Acting CEO and Hutt Valley Chamber President Mark Skelly caught up with Sarah Jenkin, a senior planner from GHD who takes you through how to make a RiverLink submission.
The Resource Management Act (RMA) provides several ways for you to get involved in council processes and influence decisions that affect the environment.
Making a submission on a proposal is an effective way to get involved with council decisions under the RMA.
We were joined by Sarah Jenkin, a Senior Planner from GHD who explained how to make a submission step by step.
Sarah has worked as a planner for over 20 years, including running consent application and decision-making processes. She is part of the consultant team working on RiverLink and has been involved in the application from the start -her current role on the project is supporting engagement from a planning perspective.
Anna McLellan, Senior Resource Advisor, Environmental Regulation Greater Wellington (Lead Regulator) also joined to answer questions.
