Liveable city

Christchurch is a great place to live. We are proud of our garden city heritage and everything the city and its surrounds has to offer. We want to ensure we have thriving, well connected suburbs and a vibrant central city.

Vibrant thriving central city, suburban and rural centres

The Christchurch Central Recovery Plan vision is for Christchurch central to become the thriving heart of an international city.

A well connected and accessible city

An efficient, integrated transport system offering a range of travel choices is necessary for Christchurch to become a globally competitive city.

Sufficient supply and access to a range of housing

Adequate housing is one of the most basic requirements for a liveable city.

21st century garden city we are proud to live in

As we rebuild our city, we need to retain and build upon our garden city heritage in new and innovative ways.
