Earthquake Recovery Minister and Christchurch resident Gerry Brownlee says he is confident that overtime the city will see a successful rebuild.
Mr Brownlee says the most important thing will be securing the sites in the new CBD and suburbs.
The minister acknowledges that many residents are still dealing with damaged homes in the aftermath of the February 2011 earthquake and says the “real progress will come once we settle those issues”.

Don't you just LOVE Mr Brownlee - "real progress will come once we settle those issues". The issues are EQC related as well as insurance related - YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THOSE ISSUES. After waiting for 9 months on a land decision, my insurer told me that they had to wait on the DBH guidelines to be released. Now I'm a rebuild, I have been told that they have to wait for the Port Hills global land remediation report from the EQC. CERA say there is no such programme and EQC say nothing. I keep going around in circles & getting no-where. ChCh has turned into two halves - those living in warm, relatively unaffected homes and then there's the rest of us fighting with insurers, Fletchers, EQC and CERA. The EQC needs to release land reports NOW, they need to fix the apportionment issue NOW, they need to tell insurers that no such Port Hills global land remediation programme exists NOW. Start doing something now Mr Brownlee, before you start pointing your finger at insurers.

People first! Insurance companies are not working in TC3 areas or helping Redzone people. Slums have been created in these areas and we people have to watch this nonsense from the government and commercial interests.

John, your coverage is so much better, so much more balanced and so much less manipulative than Mark Sainsbury's - well done. Thank you for recognising how exciting this Plan is for many of us. Despite the fact that things still aren't perfect in our homes, we WANT a city.
