Regional councils letting farmers break rules - Forest & Bird

From Morning Report, 8:46 am on 13 August 2018

Forest and Bird says too many regional councils are letting dairy farmers get away too easily with breaking the rules. A report just out from the group says even when farms are found to be flouting the rules, some councils did not take any action. That patchy oversight has the government worried enough that it's setting up a unit that will keep a check on how councils manage consents.
