Environment, planning and natural resources
Anderson Lloyd is recognised nationally and internationally for its expertise in environment, planning and natural resources law, and our team of specialists work on projects throughout New Zealand.
These projects range from individual consenting issues through to statutory plan development and nationally significant projects. Successes include a wide variety of projects in the energy, mining, property development, agribusiness, aquaculture, conservation and tourism sectors.
Our lawyers know the importance of community consultation, as many of our projects involve high levels of public interest. We work closely with stakeholders and know our way through bureaucracy, bringing a high level of integrity to legal processes. Strategies are planned so that our outcomes last – both from a commercial and community perspective.
Anderson Lloyd represents clients across a broad range of areas, advising government departments, local government, primary industry, energy and infrastructure developers, mining industry, heavy industry, iwi, conservation, recreation groups and land developers.
Anderson Lloyd is internationally recognised by top global legal directories for our natural resource and resource management law expertise, including the 2019 Asia Pacific Chamber and Partners and Legal 500 directories.
The Government has plans to repeal the Resource Management Act and enact a Spatial Planning Act, Natural and Built Environment Act, and Climate Change Adaptation Act. Anderson Lloyd is advising clients as to the impacts.
