In September the government released the National Policy Statement for Highly Productive Soil (NPS). The NPS has legal effect from 17 Oct 2022.

The objective of the NPS is:
Highly productive land is protected for use in land-based primary production, both now and for future generations.

soil
A significant part of the proposed airport is mapped as being of Highly Productive Land (green above):

This objective is to be met by the following policies:

Policy 1: Highly productive land is recognised as a resource with finite characteristics and long-term values for land-based primary production.
Policy 2: The identification and management of highly productive land is undertaken in an integrated way that considers the interactions with freshwater management and urban development.
Policy 3: Highly productive land is mapped and included in regional policy statements and district plans.
Policy 4: The use of highly productive land for land-based primary production is prioritised and supported.
Policy 5: The urban rezoning of highly productive land is avoided, except as provided in this National Policy Statement.
Policy 7: The subdivision of highly productive land is avoided, except as provided in this National Policy Statement.
Policy 8: Highly productive land is protected from inappropriate use and development.
Policy 9: Reverse sensitivity effects are managed so as not to constrain land-based primary production activities on highly productive land.
