The government has released its discussion paper [PDF] on their plans to dig up our most precious natural areas. You can submit on the proposal using a handy online form here. Submissions are due by 5.00pm on Tuesday 4 May 2010.

My inner cynic says that this is the usual sham consultation, a box-ticking exercise on a fait accompli. But it is still important to submit. A strong show of public disapproval may cause National to back down. And if they don't, we'll just have to de-elect the orcs in 2011.
