In the “New Zealand Coastal Policy Statement 2010

In this NZCPS:

  • numbering of objectives and policies is solely for convenience and is not to be interpreted as an indication of relative importance; and
  • section and policy headings indicate general subject matter and are relevant to the interpretation of objectives and policies.

Where bullet points in an objective or clauses in a policy take the form of a list:

  • where the list is cumulative, the word “and”  is used before the last clause in the list; and
  • where clauses are alternative, the word “or”  is used between all clauses.

Definitions contained in the Act are not repeated in the Glossary.
