Research phase

Photograph of children pinning their ideas for the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Area onto a community noticeboard.We have been working with communities, the Crown, Ngāi Tahu, Christchurch City Council and Environment Canterbury to understand their needs, responsibilities and aspirations.

We have received more than 5,000 ideas, suggestions and proposals for the future use of the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Area. These have been analysed and grouped into themes and land uses.

We’ve also collated information from existing sources, and commissioned surveys, technical report and studies to create a solid base of information.
