Christchurch Mail - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Public com­ment opens to­day on a draft re­gen­er­a­tion plan for 125 hectares of ru­ral land on the western side of Cranford St. About about 38 hectares on the fringe of the Cranford Basin would be re­zoned for new houses in the Christchurch City Coun­cil plan. The basin, a ma­jor nat­u­ral pond­ing and stormwa­ter man­age­ment area, is crit­i­cal to re­duc­ing flood risk. Plans are to trans­form Cranford Basin into a multi-pur­pose forested wet­land with walk­ing and cy­cle paths in the next ten years.
