You can also view and make an electronic submission on the draft UDS on the www.greaterchristchurch.org.nz home site or pick up a copy of the consultation booklet from any Council service centre or library.

Make time to attend one of the last open day sessions on the UDS at:

• 7pm to 9pm, Wednesday, 13 December, Airforce Museum, 45 Harvard Avenue, Hornby.

If you live on the coast, the middle of the city, an established suburb, new subdivision or a lifestyle block, we want to hear from you. Do your agree with the general direction of the draft UDS or prefer something else? Have your say on what happens in Greater Christchurch in the next 30 to 40 years.
