Communications and engagement
A White Paper was published for consultation on 23 October 2012 and was open until 15 January 2014 for your views. This provided an opportunity to help inform and shape the development of the Bill and to find out more about our approach to natural resource management. The Summary of Consultation Responses to the White Paper was published in March 2014. The responses, along with other relevant evidence and research, will be used to inform the development of legislative proposals and the supporting policy framework.
