Regenerate Christchurch(external link) is at the heart of leading our city from recovery to regeneration. Regenerate Christchurch wants Christchurch to be a vibrant city that has opportunities for people to grow, connect and thrive. Its contribution will be through Regeneration Plans and leadership that will transform Christchurch.
Established as a new entity in April 2016 by the Greater Christchurch Regeneration Act, Regenerate Christchurch is a partnership between the Crown and Christchurch City Council that signals a shift towards locally-led regeneration. It builds on and continues the work the Council and the Crown have undertaken since the Canterbury earthquakes.
Regenerate Christchurch is committed to working with communities and businesses and will provide opportunities for engagement and be open to feedback. The support of the broader community is critical to the success of Regenerate Christchurch.
Regenerate Christchurch’s Statement of Intent sets out three priority areas for its work:
- Central City: evaluating progress and providing advice on what is required to increase momentum and support the regeneration of the central city.
- Residential Red Zone: determining the long term use and regeneration of residential red zone land in Christchurch by leading the development of visions, strategies and Regeneration Plans.
- New Brighton: considering the current measures in place in New Brighton and providing advice on what is required to increase momentum and to support the regeneration of this area, alongside Development Christchurch Limited.
