Launch celebrates heritage milestones

The Christchurch City Council has a lot to celebrate today with the launch of its new heritage website www.ccc.govt.nz/heritage where it has released the long-awaited Christchurch Overview History draft report for public comment.

The popular and recently updated series of 14 heritage information leaflets was also made available at the launch in the main chamber of Our City today at 4pm, on the corner of Worcester Boulevard and Oxford Terrace. These leaflets are also available online through the new heritage website.

Council Planning Strategy Unit Manager, Carolyn Ingles, says the Overview History report is an important first step to guide the further identification of heritage buildings, places and other aspects of our history that contribute to city identity. It also forms the first stage in the overview of the Christchurch City Plan heritage list.

Many people who attended workshops last year contributed their thoughts to a consultant team working on the Overview History. People are encouraged to access the draft report on the website and make submissions on it.

For those who want to know more about heritage and resource consents, want to research their own home or know more about heritage listings, the updated leaflets are an ideal resource. General heritage information is available on the www.ccc.govt.nz/heritage website.
