Open For Written Comments—Draft Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Plan, Proposed Partial Revocation of the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan, and Proposed Partial Revocation of the Land Use Recovery Plan

Pursuant to the Greater Christchurch Regeneration Act 2016 (“Act”), Regenerate Christchurch invites written comments from the public on the following documents:

  • The Draft Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Plan (pursuant to section 34 of the Act);
  • The Proposed Partial Revocation of the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan (pursuant to section 54 of the Act); and
  • The Proposed Partial Revocation of the Land Use Recovery Plan (pursuant to section 45 of the Act).

The primary purpose of the Draft Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Plan is to enable short-, medium- and long-term uses of approximately 600 hectares of land within the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor, including the area previously known as the residential red zone. The Draft Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Plan will apply to all land (including land covered by water and any airspace over land) identified as the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Area (Regeneration Area) defined in Appendix 1 of the “Outline for the Ōtākaro / Avon River Corridor Regeneration Plan”.

A concise statement recording the views on the Draft Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Plan provided by the parties listed in section 29 of the Act (Christchurch City Council, Canterbury Regional Council, Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, Ōtākaro Limited, and the Chief Executive of the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet) under section 33 of the Act is also publicly available at engage.regeneratechristchurch.nz.

The Proposed Partial Revocation of the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan (CCRP) proposes to partially revoke the effect of the CCRP so that it does not apply to the Regeneration Area as shown in Appendix 2 to the Proposed Partial Revocation of the CCRP. The Proposed Partial Revocation covers that part of the central city within the four avenues that overlaps with the Regeneration Area covered by the Draft Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Plan. The CCRP will continue to apply to the remaining area of the central city, as set out in the CCRP.

The Proposed Partial Revocation of the Land Use Recovery Plan (LURP) proposes to partially revoke the effect of the LURP so that it does not apply to the Regeneration Area. The Regeneration Area is described in section 1 of the Proposed Partial Revocation of the LURP and shown in Appendix 1 and is the same as the Regeneration Area covered by the Draft Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Plan. The LURP will continue to apply to the remaining areas identified in the LURP.

In combination, the Proposed Partial Revocation of the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan and the Proposed Partial Revocation of the Land Use Recovery Plan, if approved, would result in the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Plan being the only Regeneration or Recovery Plan applying to the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Area.
