Version note: 

Some parts of this information release would not be appropriate to release and, if requested, would be withheld under the Official Information Act 1982 (the Act). Where this is the case, the relevant sections of the Act that would apply have been identified. Where information has been withheld, no public interest has been identified that would outweigh the reasons for withholding it.

Partly withheld under 9(2)(b)(ii), 9(2)(ba)(i) 9(2)(f)(iv), 9(2)(g)(i), 9(2)(i), and 9(2)(j).

In December 2019, the Minister for the Greater Christchurch Recovery released a suite of documents relating to the proposed Global Settlement Agreement with Christchurch City Council.

Following the signing of the Global Settlement Agreement between Crown and Christchurch City Council in September 2019, relevant Cabinet papers are now publicly available:

  • December 2018 – Global Settlement with Christchurch City Council: Negotiating Parameters
  • April 2019 – Global Settlement with Christchurch City Council: Update on Progress of Negotiations
  • July 2019 – Draft Global Settlement Agreement: Progress Since the Agreement in Principle and Next Steps
  • September 2019 – Final Proposed 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 future institutional arrangements and how we transition Christchurch back to local leadership. 

It provides greater certainty on how regeneration assets and opportunities will be managed in the future. 

The Global Settlement Agreement and Agreement in Principle are available on the Christchurch City Council’s website.
