Environmental Law

Environmental law is a wide-ranging sector covering many of the South Island’s main industries. Several different laws including the Resource Management Act, local government bylaws, and environmental policies govern the uses of environmental resources in New Zealand.

Being based in the South Island, our environmental team has extensive experience in dealing with the full range of issues relating to environmental law.

We have a wide range of clients who we regularly help to ensure they meet their environmental obligations as simply as possible, so they can continue to focus on the needs of their operations.

Gallaway Cook Allan’s environmental team can provide legal assistance on a range of resource consent issues surrounding the Resource Management Act. Our expert legal team can help you ensure your development project or agricultural operation meets all local and national requirements, saving you time and money.

Whether you are developing a large infrastructure project, or working on a smaller-scale property development, we make sure that you have all of your obligations sorted. We can help you write submissions to Parliament or regional authorities to help inform good policy decision-making.
