Regenerate Christchurch announces public exhibition

Regenerate Christchurch has confirmed details of its public exhibition of the refined shortlist of potential land uses for the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Area. This includes the area previously known as the residential red zone.

The “Red Zone Futures” exhibition will run from Saturday 26 May to Saturday 30 June 2018 at 99 Cashel St in Cashel Mall. There will also be an online exhibition and mobile exhibitions at public spaces around Greater Christchurch.

“We’ve listened to the significant feedback received so far,” says Regenerate Christchurch Chief Executive Ivan Iafeta. “We’ve considered the findings of Nielsen’s community needs assessment completed last year, and the technical analysis and expert advice. We’re now preparing to show Christchurch and New Zealand the opportunities within the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor.”

“The Regeneration Area is one of the largest geographical features in Christchurch and that’s what makes its transformation so exciting,” Mr Iafeta says.

“I encourage everyone to visit the physical or online versions of the exhibition to see how strong common preferences that came through in the public feedback have created a vision for the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Area.

“We have an exciting, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a legacy that will deliver benefits for Christchurch and New Zealand’s future generations. The online component of the exhibition will allow people from Christchurch and all around New Zealand to have their say, which will inform the development of the draft regeneration plan for the area.”

The exhibition will show how an 11-kilometre “Green Spine” from the city to New Brighton, that features walkways, biking tracks and wetland developments, will be complemented by other potential public and private uses.

Regenerate Christchurch is responsible for developing the regeneration plan for the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor and has considered more than 5,000 ideas submitted by the community, as well as surveys, technical reports and studies.

Gordon Campbell: On The Political Donations Scandals

Even paranoids have real enemies. While there has been something delusionary about the way New Zealand First has been living in denial about its donations scandal, one can sympathise with its indignation about Paula Bennett and Simon Bridges being among its chief accusers. Given that the National Party is enmeshed in a donation scandal of its own that shares the same core features, it is a bit like Al Capone being accused of wrongdoing by Bonnie and Clyde. Unfortunately, the entire country seems to be living in denial about the existence of these sort of shenanigans... More>>
