The National Party resource management policy proposes major changes to the Resource Management Act.

The policy, released on 30 September, restated the party's objective to reform the act within 100 days, should it win the election this year.

National's environment spokesperson Nick Smith says a National Government would have its RMA Reform Bill through Parliament within six months.

He says it will get rid of unnecessary delays, uncertainty and high costs associated with the resource consent process.
