Ecological impact assessment guideline for Waka Kotahi projects

Seeking feedback on Ecological impact assessment guideline for Waka Kotahi projects

Waka Kotahi is responsible for development and maintenance of our transport network across the country. Construction of new infrastructure and the maintenance, improvement and use of existing infrastructure may all negatively affect indigenous biodiversity values. However, Waka Kotahi projects and transport network can also benefit biodiversity, where opportunities are realised and managed appropriately.

Waka Kotahi has developed a draft Ecological impact assessment guideline for Waka Kotahi projects and is seeking feedback.

The main aims of the guideline are to:

  • provide specific guidance for land transport project development in relation to ecological matters
  • describe how ecological impact assessment works within and supports Waka Kotahi project development/delivery frameworks, including statutory processes
  • ensure compliance with Waka Kotahi strategic environmental objectives and outcomes, supporting the Z/19 Taumata Taiao – Environmental and Sustainability Standard
  • encourage Waka Kotahi projects to be consistent in approach as well as fit for purpose.

Download the draft guideline.
