An announcement from Regenerate Christchurch that it will give residents just one month to give feedback on the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor is unacceptable, National’s spokesperson for Greater Christchurch Regeneration Nicky Wagner says.

“The development of the Residential Red Zone will drive the liveability of Christchurch for generations and residents deserve to have more time to comment on such an important project. 

“We’ve had years of discussions, debate and community meetings to get to this point. Now Regenerate Christchurch is rushing the most important part of the process.

“In its announcement it said that it would normally allow six week for consultation, yet it’s cutting it short for the Christmas break. The people of Christchurch deserve better than this.

“I’m calling Minister Megan Woods to step in so that the people of Christchurch have the time to have a proper say on this important development and the future of their city.”
