Seminar: EDS v King Salmon: what the RMA really means
This recent Supreme Court decision is arguably the most important in the last 20 years and overturns established jurisprudence. Does the RMA contain environmental bottom lines after all? Has overall balanced judgement had its day? What are the implications for coastal management?
Rob Enright, Partner, DLA Phillips Fox and Nicola de Wit, Solicitor, Environmental Defence Society will outline the arguments in the case and analyse the Supreme Court decision.
A panel of relevant experts will then provide independent commentary:
• Elana Geddis, Barrister,
Harbour Chambers, Wellington, Implications for the
government's RMA reform
• Gary Hooper, Chief Executive, Aquaculture New Zealand, What it means for aquaculture
• Stephen Brown, Director, Brown New Zealand Limited, What it means for coastal management
Registration is $35 for EDS members and $40 for non-members. Registration includes a complimentary copy of EDS’s recent award winning* publicationCaring for Our Coast: An EDS guide to managing coastal development. Drinks and nibbles will be provided.
