Regenerate Christchurch, jointly funded by the Crown and Christchurch City Council, was established under the Greater Christchurch Regeneration Act 2016 to lead regeneration, engage and advocate effectively with communities and stakeholders, work collaboratively with others and provide independent advice to decision makers.
The scope of our work has been broad, from extended, geographically-focused areas to the provision of key strategic advice on achieving regeneration outcomes. Over time, our focus has adapted to reflect Christchurch's evolving needs. We have identified opportunities to maximise the benefits of the significant private and public investment that has been made in Christchurch.
In 2019 the Christchurch City Council and the Crown agreed it was time for Regenerate Christchurch to transfer its strategic leadership role to the locally-based agencies that will have long-term responsibility for regeneration. Christchurch City Council was confirmed as the inheriting agency and in accordance with the Greater Christchurch Regeneration Amendment Bill it is anticipated that Regenerate Christchurch will be formally disestablished on 30 June 2020.
