Want to help transform Christchurch's red zones?

Christchurch City Council Newsline: 11th November 2019

People with a sense of connection to the city's red zone areas and interest in their future are invited to apply for a new advisory group.

If selected, they will become community representatives on a Red Zones Transformative Land Use Group, making recommendations and giving advice on possible initiatives, ideas, and activities to help temporarily transform the city’s red zone land. 

The group will also make decisions on grant funding for some of these short-term, transitional opportunities, which could be one-off events or projects that last up to five years.

The goal of these initiatives should be to help create activity and vibrancy in the red zone areas, which include the Ōtakaro Avon River Corridor, the Port Hills, Brooklands and Southshore, ahead of longer-term regeneration.

Successful projects should benefit the community and the environment, or address sustainability or ecological challenges.

Christchurch City Council is looking for five community representatives - including a youth member and three Ōtakaro Avon River Corridor representatives - for the Red Zones Transformative Land Use Group.

“We’re on the hunt for people who want to be part of decision-making on initiatives and activities that will make a real difference to our city,” says Council Head of Urban Regeneration, Design and Heritage Carolyn Ingles. 

“If you’re someone who wants to help transform the red zones and you’re excited about representing your community, then we really want to hear from you.” 

The Red Zones Transformative Land Use Group is a result of the Global Settlement Agreement. This set out how the Crown and the Council would work together on transitional land use arrangements for the red zones. 

It also requires the Council and Crown to set up a consultative group to provide community input and advice to Land Information New Zealand (LINZ) and the Council on applications for land uses that are for less than five years.

A co-governance group will be established once ownership of all, or most of, the land has been transferred to the Council.

Drop-in information sessions about community representation on the Red Zones Transformative Land Use Group will be held at various locations across the city with Council staff on hand to answer questions. 

  • Port Hills: Friday 22nd November 2019 (9am until noon at the Lyttelton Community Boardroom - 25 Lyttelton St, Lyttelton);
  • Port Hills, Sydenham, Cashmere: Thursday 28th November 2019 (1pm until 4pm at the Beckenham Service Centre - 66 Colombo Street, Beckenham);
  • Shirley, Richmond: Monday 2nd December 2019 (9am until noon at Avebury House - 9 Evelyn Couzins Avenue, Richmond);
  • Central City: Tuesday 3rd December 2019 (9am until noon at the Civic Offices - 53 Hereford Street, Central City); and
  • New Brighton, Southshore: Wednesday 4th December 2019 (9am until noon at the Coastal Burwood Boardroom - corner of Beresford and Union Sts in New Brighton).

How to apply to join the Red Zones Transformative Land Use Group

Applications for community positions close on Friday 31st January 2020.

Apply online for community positions on the Red Zones Transformative Land Use Group. Forms are also available at Council Libraries and Service Centres.

Membership of the group will include (along with community representatives):

  • an independent chair - appointed by the Council in consultation with Ngai Tahu and LINZ; and
  • representatives from Waitai/Coastal-Burwood Community Board; Waikura/Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board; Te Pātaka o Rākaihautū /Banks Peninsula Community Board, Ngāi Tuāhūriri, and Ngati Wheke (for matters relating to the Port Hills Red Zone).
