Annual Review of the Greater Christchurch Regeneration Act 2016

Annual Review of the Greater Christchurch Regeneration Act 2016

Reviewer: Liz Sinclair

Date: September 2019

Under Section 150 of the Greater Christchurch Regeneration Act 2016 (the Act) specifies that the Minister responsible for administration of provisions of the Act, must commission an annual review (the Review) of the operation and effectiveness of the Act within 12 months of the commencement of the Act, and every 12 months after that. A report must be prepared for the Minister on that review, and the Minister must present the report to the House of Representatives as soon as practicable after the Review has been completed.

The Review is most interesting and mentions that the act has not been used as much as intended. The earthquake repair work in Southshore and South Brighton gets a mention as possible and appropriate uses of the act, as mentioned below. This appears to be supported by the Minister in a desire to see the act used more in its remaining life.

61. "Although there is a desire to see the Act used more during its remaining life, I did not hear a long list of specific opportunities. Those mentioned included Southshore and South New Brighton. That work now sits with the Council which has announced a forward path involving two separate projects running simultaneously to resolve the outstanding impacts of the earthquakes and do more detailed planning on responding to climate change. 9 Other possibilities were the Brooklands and Port Hills Residential Red Zones (RRZs)".
