Farmers will no longer need a resource consent to build water storage in most situations if National is in power. This is the latest from Agriculture and Trade spokesperson Todd McClay who says the party said the country’s economy is based on its primary sector so National will make it easier to invest in water storage, and cut other red tape that is limiting food production, such as a requirement to get resource consent to grow fruit and vegetables. Mr McLay says horticulture, viticulture, forestry and pastoral farming contribute more than three-quarters of New Zealand’s goods exports and farmers and growers are immensely frustrated by over-bearing regulation that holds back higher productivity and investment and does not protect the environment.
