Bal is a specialist in resource management and environmental law, and is a partner in Russell McVeagh's Environment, Planning, and Natural Resources Group. He provides strategic advice for, and leads, many large scale infrastructure and commercial projects from the conceptual stage through to obtaining consents. This includes applications in the energy sector (hydro-electricity generation), industrial air discharge projects (sulphur, PM10, solvents), manufacturing, infrastructure (gas and electricity transmission, bulk water supply, wastewater, trade waste), mining (quarrying, clean fills and mining), contaminated land (assessment and remediation), dairy (manufacturing sites and dairy farms), residential (retirement villages, aged care facilities, townhouse developments), education facilities, large scale subdivisions, and town centre developments (retail, commercial). Bal has a particular interest in water related topics. He is co-author of the 'Water' chapter of the 4th Ed. and online editions of New Zealand's leading environmental textbook Environmental and Resource Management Law (Ed. Nolan, D.A.), and has been involved in many projects involving water takes and discharges. Most recently this has included acting for TrustPower Limited on its successful application to vary the National Water Conservation Order (Rakaia River) 1988, enabling the development of a comprehensive irrigation and generation scheme on the Canterbury Plains, while ensuring that the outstanding characteristics identified by the Order remained protected. Bal also has considerable experience in related fields of the Public Works Act 1981 (acting for both those acquiring land and landowners who are subject to Public Works Act procedures), Local Government Act processes (rating, development contributions), law reform, and, under the Resource Management Act 1991, district and regional plan formulation.
