rma.net was established in 1998 with a focus on providing a dedicated on-line library of legal decisions relating to New Zealand’s environment.
The legal decisions include decisions from the New Zealand Environment Court (formerly the Planning Tribunal) and relevant judgments of the New Zealand District Court, High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court, plus relevant decisions of the Privy Council. The library has 11992 decisions which date back to the enactment of the New Zealand Resource Management Act in 1991.
Our full library of decisions is easily accessible from your desktop, or using mobile technology, from any location you need them such as the courtroom, council meetings or office. Searching the site is free, while a fee is charged for viewing or downloading decisions.
To our subscribers we provide a weekly e-mail summary of recent decisions added to the library. This is linked directly to rma.net so that you are kept up to date with relevant decisions.
We also provide a free monthly decision listing which is sent out on the 1st of each month detailing all the decisions added to the library the previous month. Please go the bottom of the home page if you wish to sign up for this free listing.
