The Greater Christchurch Group and three other new agencies — Regenerate Christchurch, Ōtākaro Limited, and Development Christchurch Limited — have specific roles in the greater Christchurch regeneration. We are committed to working together, and with the Christchurch City Council and our strategic partners.
