Northland Regional Council

The Northland Regional Council's responsibility as an environmental manager, is to protect Northland's land, water, coast and air by allowing sustainable development to take place. This is done through developing Resource Management Plans, and by issuing and monitoring resource consents which control the adverse impacts of human activities.

The Regional Council also has regulatory roles in pest and weed control, emergency management, and in promoting environmental education to encourage communities to manage their own environment.
