The Green Party has a plan for a fairer, smarter and more democratic rebuild, with a focus on smart transport solutions, restoring local democracy, and keeping Christchurch’s assets.

Our vision for Christchurch is for a liveable, accessible city with a sense of identity and strong, connected communities.

For a greener, fairer, smarter and more democratic Canterbury rebuild, the Green Party will:

  1. Prioritise smarter transport solutions to get Christchurch moving again

    We will establish Canterbury Transport - a single body responsible for transport strategy, planning and delivery across Greater Christchurch, as well as accelerating investment in safe cycling and improving public transport

  1. Work in genuine partnership with the Christchurch City Council, Ngāi Tahu and the community to put Christchurch first

    We will remove any pressure on the Council to sell strategic assets by delaying some of the anchor projects and instead prioritise the rebuild of suburban facilities

  1. Restore local democracy

    We will restore regional democracy, remove CERA’s emergency powers, and return power to the City Council.

  1. Green the rebuild with a commitment to green spaces and climate change resilience

    We will progress the Avon-Otakaro River Park and work with local councils to ensure that climate resilience is incorporated into the rebuild.
