Explanatory note

This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

Under section 148 of the Greater Christchurch Regeneration Act 2016, the Minister for Greater Christchurch Regeneration has the power to revoke Orders in Council continued by section 147 of that Act. This order, which comes into force on 18 March 2019, revokes the Canterbury Earthquake (Christchurch Replacement District Plan) Order 2014. That order modified the application of the Resource Management Act 1991 (the RMA) to provide a new process for the review of the existing Christchurch district plans. It also required the Christchurch City Council to prepare a replacement district plan for the Christchurch district.

This order returns the management of the Christchurch District Plan to the local leadership of the Christchurch City Council and restores the application of the RMA to the processes for the preparation, change, and review of the district plan.

Before recommending the making of this order, the Minister had regard to the views of the strategic partners (Christchurch City Council, Selwyn District Council, Waimakariri District Council, Environment Canterbury, and Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu) and also consulted with Regenerate Christchurch and Ōtākaro Limited.

This order is revoked at the close of 15 April 2019.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2012.

Date of notification in Gazette: 19 February 2019.

This order is administered by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet.
