Agencies set sights on 2050 vision for Greater Christchurch

Wednesday, July 29, 2020   Posted in: Signatory Notice Board By: Administrator With tags: planning, collaboration

Environment Canterbury media release: 29th July 2020

A new initiative is underway to develop a long-term vision and plan for the Greater Christchurch area, driven by a partnership of local councils, Ngāi Tahu, the district health board and government agencies.

The Greater Christchurch Partnership is prioritising Greater Christchurch 2050 over the next 12 months and is committed to providing collaborative leadership to address the area’s strategic challenges and opportunities.

Find out more about Greater Christchurch 2050.

“We have an opportunity to work together alongside iwi and mana whenua to set a strong direction for Greater Christchurch and to strengthen our relationship with central government. We need to be thinking now about the future we want for our children and grandchildren,” says Greater Christchurch Partnership (GCP) spokesperson and Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon.

Building on economic strengths to recover from the impacts of COVID-19

"The vision will describe what we aspire for Greater Christchurch over the next 30 years, and the opportunities and steps required to achieve intergenerational wellbeing.  Key to this will be building on our region’s economic strengths to grow and attract the industries, employment and investment which will provide prosperity for our next generation.

"It will also consider the impact of climate change on our environment and communities, and set out agreed actions as we move towards being a zero-carbon economy.''

Decisions made through Greater Christchurch 2050 will help inform the development of partners’ long-term work programmes and budgets, and will ensure the community and economy are best placed to recover from the impacts of COVID-19. This work will also help reposition the urban area for a more prosperous, inclusive, sustainable and resilient future.

Environment Canterbury the first to agree to the programme

Environment Canterbury was the first of the partners to formally consider and agree to the Partnership’s work programme and associated funding arrangements - on Thursday 23rd July 2020.

Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, Canterbury District Health Board, Christchurch City Council, Waimakariri District Council and Selwyn District Council are now set to consider the Partnership’s recommendations over the coming weeks.

Reports will be considered at the following public meetings:

  • 29th July: Christchurch City Council;
  • 4th August: Waimakariri District Council; and
  • 12th August: Selwyn District Council.

About Greater Christchurch and the Greater Christchurch Partnership
