PC on RMA

Peter Cresswell has a column in the NZ Herald on why the RMA should be abolished (or destroyed as he calls it).

I’m certainly a fan of changing the RMA. We are the only country in the world where it takes longer to get resource consents for new roads, then it does to build them.

However if it was simply abolished, I do wonder what Peter sees as the mechanism for dealing with land use issues. Is he saying that one should be able to build a 20 story tower block next to someone’s farm house, even if it blocks all the sun from their house?
