Possible combinations of land uses in the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Area

Regenerate Christchurch has been considering everyone’s ideas and how they can contribute to the amazing opportunity Christchurch has to transform our city.

We’ve gathered, obtained and considered information about the area, and developed land use assessment criteria based on the vision and objectives for the future use of the area. We've also considered a range of possible options for investment and financial return to contribute to the city and New Zealand.

This ‘information base’ has helped us to come up with some possible combinations of uses and activities for the area.
Note: no decisions have been made about uses and activities for the area, and no funding has been allocated.


Feedback on the 10 possible combinations of land uses, and the information we've considered to get to this point, has now closed.

We appreciate the feedback received from a wide range of people, groups and organisations. Thank you for sharing your views.


Acknowledging current and past owners of land in the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Area

Today, there are 30 privately owned properties in the area. Regenerate Christchurch acknowledges that the draft Regeneration Plan will need to consider the views of all people including private property owners.

The 5,442 former owners of properties that were acquired by the Crown are also acknowledged, along with the strong connection that many former owners have with the area, and their interest in decisions about how it may be used in the future.
