Proposed revocations to the CCRP and LURP

Covers of the CCRP and LURP

The primary purpose of the partial revocations of the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan (CCRP) and the Land Use Recovery Plan (LURP) and is to avoid both the potential for inconsistencies and confusion associated with having both the CCRP and LURP applying to the same area as the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Plan at the same time.

Partially revoking the CCRP and the LURP will ensure that a single Regeneration Plan applies to the Regeneration Area, which will provide greater clarity and efficiency for Plan users.

You can read the original LURP in full below. Regenerate Christchurch's proposal to partially revoke the LURP is available for download in the box on the right-hand side of the page.

A comparison of the finalised draft Regeneration Plan (post public written comment) and the LURP has not identified any actual inconsistencies between the land use outcomes (and associated provisions) of the LURP (articulated through its actions), and the draft Regeneration Plan.

In order to lawfully exercise her power to approve a proposed partial revocation, section 11(2) of the GCR Act requires the Minister to reasonably consider that the exercise of power is necessary. Given no inconsistency exists, it is not considered necessary to revoke any part of the LURP.
