Christchurch council shortens consents
Christchurch City Council says it will be able to process resource consents in 14 days.
This is the target set under the earthquake recovery legislation.
Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee highlighted the tight timetable at last week’s announcement of a new recovery unit headed by Warwick Isaacs.
While Mr Brownlee reminded the council of its obligations, he also acknowledged that his appointment of Mr Isaacs would result in another 100-day planning delay.
