Christchurch Regeneration Panel Feature

SESSION: Friday 21st April

Regeneration planning is becoming a key part of our future planning system. Required either during the recovery of a large event where land can no longer be used as intended or proactively used to reduce risks, such as part of a management retreat process, the skills, vision and process for regeneration planning will become more important in the future.

The purpose of this facilitated panel is to share the knowledge and experience gained from the regeneration of Ōtautahi from a range of perspectives. What lessons have been learned for future regeneration planning in New Zealand? What specific skills are required? And how might we be able to plan for this in advance?


  • Chrissie Williams: Governance and future of co-governance arrangements for regeneration
  • Dr Jessica Halliday: Built form and community building to support regeneration
  • Joseph Hullen: Cultural/Indigenous inclusion in regeneration
  • Daisy Lavea-Timo: Youth and/or Pacifica in regeneration
