CERA Commences Consultation on Recovery Strategy

The Recovery Strategy is an overarching long-term strategy for the reconstruction, rebuilding and recovery of Greater Christchurch after the earthquakes. CERA, which is responsible for preparing the Recovery Strategy, has indicated that the Recovery Strategy will set directions and priorities for recovery across five main areas:

  • Community wellbeing: Housing, employment, education and health;

  • Culture and heritage: Arts, sport, recreation, heritage values and taonga;

  • Built environment: All features of the environment made by people;

  • Economy: Investment, business and labour market; and

  • Natural environment: Air, land, water, coasts and biodiversity.

An initial round of public consultation has been announced, involving a series of community workshops in Christchurch, Lyttelton, Lincoln, Kaiapoi and Rangiora. The public can also make submissions. The key issues on which CERA is seeking public input relate to the vision and priorities for recovery and how people can work together to achieve recovery.

The community workshops will run from 14 – 18 July. The closing date for submissions is 22 July.

Further information on the community workshops and submission forms can be found on the CERA website. If you have any questions please contact us
