    There is no hiding from the wintry weather anymore – it seems our long hot summer is well and truly behind us. And with winter comes the temptation to hunker down and hibernate, which in any other city would be fine. But as we head into our third winter since the earthquakes it may be a good idea for Cantabrians to think more about ensuring our social and physical activity doesn’t fall by the way side.
  • 04 March 2013
    We have established a set of priorities for CERA in 2013 around the rebuild and recovery of greater Christchurch.
  • 01 February 2013
    2013 is destined to be a year of action for greater Christchurch. We’ve largely done the planning and now we are implementing those plans. Among the significant progress made are many kilometres of road now repaired and rebuilt, stormwater pipes fixed, building consents issued, concrete poured etc. While delays are frustrating when you have to alter your route to work or school because of roadworks, every piece that’s fixed gets us closer to recovery.

    Even though we see it from our offices each day, I still get a surprise when I hear about significant changes in the CBD and recent good news is that Victoria Square has reopened to the public. I’m a great fan of public green spaces and parks. Hagley Park is one of the most significant pieces of town planning and legacy left by the forefathers of Christchurch.

    So Canterbury Anniversary Day has passed and we’re on the rapid sleigh ride to Christmas now! CERA’s major announcement in the past week was the launch of our draft Accessible City Chapter of the Central City Recovery Plan – focused on how people travel into and around the city, and how the streets will look as the central city redevelops.

    Lonely Planet has just announced that Christchurch is number six on its list of ‘Top 10 Cities for 2013’, describing us as ‘rising from the rubble…with a breathtaking mix of spirit, determination and flair’. What great publicity for the city!

    The recent land decisions on the Port Hills have been followed up with community meetings in various locations, and last week we saw over 600 people at afternoon and evening events.
  • 02 July 2012
    As you will know the Earthquake Recovery Minister last week announced zoning decisions for properties in the Port Hills with the majority being zoned Green.
  • 25 June 2012
    Since Minister Brownlee announced the zoning review process just over a week ago, CERA has been sent a huge number of requests to have zones checked.
  • 19 June 2012
    Having just celebrated a year in my role at CERA, last week was a good time for me to reflect on what has been done so far.
  • 11 June 2012
    Winter has certainly arrived as predicted, and as pretty as it is, the snow managed to cause its fair share of issues around Canterbury last week. And the forecast ahead is for more winter - not that we should be surprised about that!
  • 05 June 2012
    The first really wintry blast is upon us now and that’s a timely reminder that we need to look after each other. The next CERA supplement that will arrive in your letterbox from next week has a lot of information about the services and support available to everyone over the winter months.

    The next six months will see increasing progress on repairs and rebuilds in the residential green zone, and an increasing focus on TC3 properties.

    Relocating houses In the residential red zones, there are many lovingly restored and much loved villas, bungalows and family homes. Some of these houses are relatively undamaged and could potentially be relocated to another piece of land.
