The Greater Christchurch Regeneration Bill has passed second reading on a voice vote.

The purpose of this bill is to provide a new legal framework to support the regeneration of greater Christchurch over the next 5 years. New legislation is needed to recognise the shift in focus from recovering from the Canterbury earthquakes in the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Act 2011 to regeneration. This includes providing for the timely, future development of greater Christchurch and enabling an increased role for local leadership.
