We are heading into a busy period at CECC which very much revolves around spring, new beginnings and new life. The well publicised work being done by the Christchurch Central Development Unit is to be announced in late July. The eagerly awaited Blueprint, outlining the future construct of our Central City has the potential to re-energise wider Christchurch. It has been described by Warwick Isaacs, Director of CCDU, as being brave and visionary. We are hoping for a radical plan that will take the city somewhere new. CECC will be closely involved in encouraging Central City redevelopment. New beginnings going in to spring which has always been about restarting and new growth!
Then in September we celebrate business success with the Champion Canterbury Awards. There are around 200 finalists with the winners being announced at a black tie dinner on September 27. The awards are about celebrating new business activity and the valuable contribution made by business to this community.
Exciting and positive times ahead, which we should all be actively engaging in!
