Series of Articles - Extraordinary Powers to Expedite Recovery

The Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Act 2011 vests extraordinary powers in the Minister for Earthquake Recovery, the Hon. Gerry Brownlee, to circumvent or fast-track usual RMA processes to expedite the recovery of Christchurch. 

We have prepared a series of three articles examining the application and implications of these powers, including:

  • Part 1 - The Central City Recovery Plan

  • Part 2 - The Recovery Strategy

  • Part 3 - Orders in Council and Other Powers
