National policy statement
Freshwater plan development in New Zealand is guided by the National Policy Statement for Freshwater Management 2014 (NPS-FM) which was revised and came into effect on 1 August 2014.
The NPS-FM is part of a series of reforms to improve freshwater management at the national level. It now includes the national objectives framework that directs how councils are to go about setting freshwater objectives, limits and targets.
