Submissions - Christ Church Cathedral Reinstatement Bil

Media Release

Organisation: Environment Committee

For release: 7 December 2017

Invitation for interested groups to submit on the Christ Church Cathedral Reinstatement Bill

The Environment Committee is inviting interested groups to submit on the Christ Church Cathedral Reinstatement Bill. The bill proposes a regulatory framework which would enable the reinstatement of the cathedral by providing flexibility and reducing impediments and risks.

The bill is in response to the Cathedral Working Group’s recommendation that enabling legislation would be required for the cathedral’s reinstatement. It is part of an offer accepted by the Synod of the Anglican Diocese of Christchurch to provide certainty and confidence to people in Canterbury, the wider public, businesses, funders and investors about the future of the cathedral.

The bill proposes to allow the Governor-General to make Orders in Council on the recommendation of the Minister who is responsible for the administration of the legislation. These Orders in Council can grant exemptions from, modify or extend an enactment, or any provisions of certain enactments. The proposed bill has similar controls to those in the Hurunui/Kaikōura Earthquakes Recovery Act 2016.

Send your submission on the bill by midnight on 10 December 2017.
