Final weeks and open sessions for Urban Development Strategy feedback
The public has just two weeks left to have their say on the draft Greater Christchurch Urban Development Strategy (UDS),
as submissions close Wednesday, 20 December.
The draft strategy - which proposes how the Christchurch City Council, Selwyn and Waimakariri District Councils,
Environment Canterbury and Transit NZ plan to manage long term growth in Greater Christchurch – is available for viewing
from all council and district council offices, libraries, and service centres.
You can also view and make an electronic submission on the draft UDS on the www.greaterchristchurch.org.nz

what happens in Greater Christchurch in the next 30 to 40 years.
