The Minister for Canterbury Earthquake Recovery, Hon Gerry Brownlee, has decided to revoke Proposed Change 1 to the Canterbury Regional Policy Statement.
This decision has been made pursuant to section 27 of the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Act 2011, and means that Proposed Change 1 will no longer have effect. The decision is ancillary to the decision to insert the new Chapter 6 – Recovery and Rebuilding of Greater Christchurch into the Regional Policy Statement as a result of the approval of the Land Use Recovery Plan.
Pursuant to section 21(4)(b) of the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Act 2011, the Minister for Canterbury Earthquake Recovery gives the following notice:
The Minister for Canterbury Earthquake Recovery has approved the Land Use Recovery Plan under section 21(2) of the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Act 2011, following amendments to the draft Land Use Recovery Plan.
A panel made up of representatives from the relevant agencies – Insurance Council, City Council, Southern Response and Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment – who discuss the questions and topics that have been posed by people in the community at the meetings held across the city.
The health and wellbeing of Christchurch residents is an issue that health professionals in the city say needs more attention.
