Having passed its first parliamentary reading, the Fast-Track Approval bill is currently open for submission.

The bill is described as a ‘one-stop-shop’ for resource consents and certificates of compliance required under multiple environmental acts.

The fast-track consenting process is claiming to provide significant regional and national benefits, but public health concerns are at the forefront for health experts.

Producer Sofia Kent spoke to Marnie Prickett, Research Fellow at the Department of Public Health at the University of Otago, about the bill and what implications it may have.
