Parts of Christchurch have been heavily built up. The City’s amenity is therefore reflected in the quality and balance of both the natural environment and the built cityscape.

The quality and balance of Christchurch’s natural and built environments unifies the city and provides the backdrop for its cultural, recreational and commercial amenity value. As the city develops and the community’s values shift, the perceived amenity value of the city will also change. We help improve the lives of Christchurch residents by maintaining and promoting the City’s high amenity value.
