Changes to Concessions Regime
Concession holders should now have increased certainty and experience some improvements in concessions processing due to recent amendments to the Conservation Act 1987 (“CA”). The Conservation Amendment Act 2012 is the latest in a line of changes to the CA that flow from the Department of Conservation’s 2010 review of the concessions processing regime. This review resulted in a number of proposed changes to improve the timeliness, efficiency, certainty and transparency of the concessions process.
