From Nine To Noon, 9:08 am on 4 September 2015

As Cantabrians prepare to mark the fifth anniversary of the September 4th earthquake, Peter Townsend, the chief executive of the Canterbury Employers' Chamber of Commerce, is predicting good things in store for the city. The CECC has conducted a survey of 50 key players on their progress in the city's rebuild. Peter Townsend says it shows 2016 will be a big year, and by next October he expects people back in the central city retail area in ways we haven't seen for in five years.
