John Key on plans for Christchurch
Mon, 30 Jul 2012 7:00p.m.
Prime Minister John Key talks to Campbell Live from the official launch of the blueprint for Christchurch.
The plans include more green spaces, a smaller CBD, a new stadium, a convention centre, a height restriction, specialised precincts and more pedestrian areas.
Christchurch is New Zealand’s second largest city, so getting it right is quite a balancing act.
It must have office space, retail space, but also, as reflected in a striking number of the public submissions, it must have parks and green areas and a human scale.
John Key spoke to John Campbell about the new plans.

Congratulations on presenting a magnificent positive picture of the future Christchurch. As an ex Cantabrian now living in Hawkes Bay who has been devastated by the demise of my beloved home town I am thrilled at the foresight displayed and the energy behind this redevelopment plan. Go for it Canterbury. TV3's presentation followed by John Campbells coverage shows your station is the only TV station worth following. I was disgusted by the negative approach of your opposition TV station especially at 7pm. To build a decent NZ we need positivity in our lives and you brought this to all NZ by your supurb portrail of the future on Christchurch.

Once again Campbell Live has a very powerful caravan of opinion about the private insurers. Responding is Tim Grafton.
