Christchurch City Council seeks input on Long Term Plan

Christchurch City Council seeks input on Long Term Plan


The Christchurch City Council is encouraging residents to have their say about the Long Term Plan that will shape the city over the next 10 years.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel launched the Our City. Our Future. campaign today on the anniversary of the first big earthquake to shake the region, a date she chose deliberately.

“This year 4 September symbolises new beginnings. The earthquakes caused a lot of damage and have presented the city with some big financial challenges, but they have also given us an opportunity to do things differently.”

The Mayor says feedback from residents will help the Council set priorities for the Long Term Plan.

“We are acutely aware that many of our residents are still stuck, unable to resolve issues with EQC, insurers, and flooding.

“But we need everyone to get involved if we’re going to make smart choices. What we decide now will have a significant impact for generations to come.”

Mayor Dalziel says the document the Council released today gives an overview of its financial situation, and some of the challenging issues it needs to confront to get the city back on its feet.

Mayor Dalziel urges residents to take the time to go online at yourvoice.ccc.govt.nz or visit a Council library or service centre to find out more about getting involved in the planning process.

Mapp’s attempted defence of the SAS on RNZ this morning unintentionally indicated that collective punishment was baked into the planning exercise for the raid, and also into how the raid proceeded on the ground. More>>
