If you want a head start, people in the community are contributing in a couple of ways:
- An online survey for individuals, which can be found here.
- A toolkit to support community and special interest groups to hold their own conversations which can be found here.
- Waka Toa Ora is also having a seminar on Thursday 22 October 2020 12.30-2pm at Tūranga
OVTRK upholds all four wellbeings - environmental, social, economic and cultural wellbeing, where the indigenous status of tangata whenua and the role of tangata Tiriti - i.e. everyone else - is understood. Consistent with the Local Government Act, the GCP has always used the four-wellbeings framework to provide context and direction for its work. Here is our opportunity to make the links!
The workshop series will culminate in a final Leadership workshop in early December, where representatives from across all sectors, including the third sector, will join with GCP elected members to bring together the outcome of all the workshops and the community engagement and provide direction for the project team to finalise a draft vision and begin the detailed work on the plan, which will occur in the first half of 2021.
Greater Christchurch is the area of Christchurch city and nearby areas within the Selwyn and Waimakariri districts, from Rolleston to Rangiora.
The Greater Christchurch Partnership (GCP) has existed since 2007 and brings together Christchurch City, Waimakariri and Selwyn District Councils, Environment Canterbury, Ngāi Tahu, Canterbury District Health Board and representatives of central government.
The Greater Christchurch Urban Development Strategy, produced in 2007 and updated in 2016 has provided strong collective guidance to the Partnership agencies, and was a critical foundation to enable rapid coordinated response following the earthquakes to free up land in response to the housing crisis.
Note: The earlier iteration of the GCP was referred to as the Urban Development Strategy (UDS).
