Regional Public Transport Plan approved by Joint Committee
The Greater Christchurch Public Transport Joint Committee approved the draft Regional Public Transport Plan 2018-28 at its meeting on Monday December 3, accepting the changes suggested through the hearing committee process, and recommended that Environment Canterbury approve the Plan.
A significant component of the Plan relating to Greater Christchurch has been developed by the Greater Christchurch Public Transport Joint Committee agencies. The draft Plan was put out for community consultation in September.
Joint Committee member and Environment Canterbury chair Steve Lowndes said the consultation period was comprehensive, engaging a high number of people.
“At final count we received 726 submissions, along with 8,944 quick polls taken across the community,” he said.
