"About 30 per cent of homes are connected by overhead phone lines but the Resource Management Act often prevents Chorus from installing additional lines to connect homes to the UFB network unless it takes away the copper line at the same time."

What is the specific part of the RMA that prevents this?

Its not the RMA itself but some of the consents to install & operate telecomunications networks issused under the RMA that in most cases restrict the numner of Aerial Service leads that a Network Operator may  install.

There's no mention of mention of it in the RMA itself, and there isn't any particularly relevant national policy, so my best guess is that it comes down to the way in which the visual effects provision of the RMA has been interpreted at the Chorus<>Council interface. This could be to do with the specific plans of councils (as I've heard that Chorus only have this problem in some areas?)

I'm working on that too... but that will be a little further as it's a bit more complex.
