Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper introduces a number of amendments to Part 6AA that deals with proposals of national significance. Boards of inquiry will be required to include a representative appointed by mana whenua, and will also be required to seek the advice of mana whenua in any matter being considered, and to reflect that advice in any decisions and recommendations they make. Any draft and final reports produced by boards of inquiry will be required to be sent to mana whenua, and any other relevant hapū and iwi authorities. The Supplementary Order Paper removes the limitation applied to appeals, so that appeals against decisions based on merit can be brought before the High Court.
