The Blueprint: Introducing the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan

In the wake of the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes, much of Christchurch's CBD has been, or will be, demolished. The people of Christchurch have responded with over 100,000 ideas that have informed the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan.

The Blueprint identifies a number of key projects that will catalyse development, provide certainty and clarity, and inspire confidence.

An urban frame of open green space will create a dense, vibrant core, while the Avon River will create a link between key precincts. Living spaces, parks, business, and commerce will evolve and grow to create a prosperous, exciting central city. People of Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand and the world will come together to live, do business, and experience all the city has to offer.

The Recovery Plan isn't just a quick fix – it's a long term vision that incorporates cutting-edge design and the latest ideas in urban planning. It's achievable, it's full of potential, and it's ready to fly.
