Community consultation on rebuild continues

4:02 pm on 16 July 2011

The Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority is holding more community meetings over the next few days to allow Christchurch residents to submit their ideas on what can be done to help the region rebuild.

Four community workshops are being held over the weekend and two more will take place on Monday.

Recovery Authority chief executive Roger Sutton says the workshops focus on community wellbeing, the built and natural environments, the economy, and culture and heritage.

Mr Sutton says the first meetings in the series, held on Thursday and Friday of last week, attracted about 100 people to each session.

He says the ideas the public put forward will help form an overall recovery strategy and detailed recovery plans for Christchurch and the surrounding region.
