Regenerate Christchurch signals approach to red zone

Regenerate Christchurch signals approach to residential red zone

Regenerate Christchurch has today signaled its approach for identifying the long-term use of land that has been zoned red in the Christchurch district.

“Since the establishment of Regenerate Christchurch we have been meeting and listening to people in the community to understand how they want to be involved in shaping the future of the red zone,” says Chief Executive Ivan Iafeta.

“The feedback has very clearly identified that everyone needs to have access to the same information about the planning process, and the land in the red zone.”

“We are committed to being open and transparent with how we carry out the planning process for the red zone.”

The first step will be to prepare a draft Outline for a Regeneration Plan for the section of the Ōtākaro/Avon River Corridor that runs along the river from Barbadoes Street to Stanmore Road.

“The draft Outline will set out a pathway for decisions on the future use of this land and will also create the foundation for how we will involve communities.”

In addition to preparing a draft Outline for the top section of the Ōtākaro/Avon River Corridor, Regenerate Christchurch will also be undertaking activities to support regeneration planning for the rest of the river corridor.
To support this and Regenerate Christchurch’s other work in the red zone, existing information on the flat land red zones has been collated and is now available on Regenerate Christchurch’s website:

The publication of this information reinforces Regenerate Christchurch’s inclusive approach to working with communities and businesses. “We want to engage the wider community and invite their involvement in one of the most exciting urban renewal opportunities ever seen in New Zealand,” says Mr Iafeta.

If Joe Biden is elected President next week, here comes the bad news. If Biden tries to defend Obamacare, combat climate change (via say, a variant of the Green New Deal) or tries to improve the access of US women to abortion services , he will run afoul of a Supreme Court dominated by judges likely to rule that such matters must be left to the states like Missouri and Alabama to manage as they see fit. Meaning: Even if Biden had a radical agenda, this would be unlikely to survive the current bench on the Supreme Court... More>>
