The Government has announced new legislation as part of the transitional phase for CERA. The Greater Christchurch Regeneration Bill will replace the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Act 2011, which expires in April 2016.
Associated with this is the draft Transition Recovery Plan, which sets out proposals for the transition of the Government’s role in the recovery of Greater Christchurch to long term recovery arrangements. This is essentially a discussion document and includes key contextual information, proposals for the new recovery legislation, a set of new recovery arrangements for the Central City, and an approach for reporting on priority issues. A new agency called Regenerate Christchurch will have primary responsibility for the development of the Crown’s major projects and precincts in the Central City.
Feedback is sought on the discussion document by 30 July 2015. More details can be found here: http://cera.govt.nz/recovery-strategy/leadership-and-integration/transition-recovery-plan
