  • The Greater Christchurch Regeneration Act 2016

    The Greater Christchurch Regeneration Amendment Bill, aimed at accelerating the transition of regeneration to local leadership in greater Christchurch, was enacted on 29 June 2020.

    The changes made to the Act include:

  • Our regeneration partners

    The Greater Christchurch Group and three other new agencies — Regenerate Christchurch, Development Christchurch Limited and Ōtākaro Limited — have specific roles in the greater Christchurch regeneration.

  • Global Settlement Agreement with Christchurch City Council

    The Global Settlement Agreement follows significant negotiations between the Crown and Council on ownership of key Crown and Council regeneration assets and matters, such as the Bus Interchange and the Crown-owned Residential Red Zone, as well

  • Recovery and regeneration plans

    Different types of plans have been used to address the needs and requirements of greater Christchurch at different phases following the 2010 and 2011 Canterbury earthquakes.

  • Section 71 proposals

    The Minister for Greater Christchurch Regeneration (the Minister) has the power to approve proposals to make changes to planning documents, such as Resource Management Act documents, using section 71 of the Greater Christchurch Regeneration Act 2016 (GCG Act).

  • Christ Church Cathedral Reinstatement Project, Cathedral Square, Christchurch

    The proposal for an Order in Council to modify the process for resource consent applications for reinstatement work on the Christ Church Cathedral has been approved.

  • Past Orders in Council

    Apart from Acts of Parliament, Orders in Council are the main method the Government uses to put into action decisions that need legal force.
