The first regeneration plan to be developed by Regenerate Christchurch is for the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor and began with the release of a draft Outline for the plan in December 2016.
The Outline for the regeneration plan was gazetted on 6 April 2017.
Regenerate Christchurch used ideas, suggestions and proposals received together with information gathered during 2017 to identify 10 possible combinations of land uses.
Feedback on these land use combinations were used to develop a shortlist of options that includes a Green Spine running through the length of the Ōtākaro Avon River from the city to the sea and three distinct areas or ‘reaches’.
Regenerate Christchurch sought feedback on this shortlist in May and June 2018 through the Red Zone Futures exhibition. Feedback received during the exhibition period will help inform the draft Regeneration Plan.
The public will have an opportunity to provide formal feedback on the draft Regeneration Plan before it is finalised and provided to the Minister for Greater Christchurch Regeneration for consideration.
