Ngai Tahu is planning a new $52 million cultural centre and office block in Christchurch.

Waatea News reports the centre would be on the site of the former King Edward Barracks. Plans were agreed in-principle in January.

However, Te Rununga o Ngai Tahu chair Mark Solomon says there's a lot of water to go under the bridge before the project gets the final approval.
