Urban Development Strategy (UDS) - refresh process

OVTRK encompasses Greater Christchurch as many place-based, identity-based and interest-based NGOs are interested in keeping links with across the wider city.

We also want to make this range of NGOs visible to Greater Christchurch government and commercial Sector. So we made links with the Greater Christchurch UDS Implementation Committee (UDSIC).

We have been informed that the visioning exercise that had been planned in relation to the UDS is on hold because it was recognised that to do that requires more time than was available before the local body elections later this year. The process of "refreshing" the UDS may be undertaken after those elections. In the interim, a small team from the UDS Partner Organisations is pulling together an update on the 2007 UDS.
