HortNZ calls on Govt to protect productive land

17th February 2021 By Staff Reporter | | @foodtickernz

Horticulture New Zealand is calling on the Government for better protection of highly productive land.

“While it’s great that the Government is trying to do something to improve housing supply by making land more available through reform of the Resource Management Act, the New Zealanders who will live in those houses will also want fresh vegetables and fruit to eat at appropriate prices,” HortNZ chief executive Mike Chapman said.

Chapman added he wanted the Government to ensure the draft National Policy Statement on Highly Productive Land, launched in Pukekohe in August 2019, was not sidelined.
