At the end of last year, we asked you to save the date for our first forum of
2014. We now have more details available, including the statutory
partners who will be attending.
Next OVTRK Open
relating to CERA transitioning out in 2016
7.30pm Monday 10 March
WEA Centre 59 Gloucester
While there was insufficient time for discussion at our last OVTRK Forum,
several issues were identified there that relate to the process of CERA
"transitioning" out in 2016. This process is the topic for this Forum
on 10 March 2014.
We invited all the statutory partners named in the CERA Act to join us. All
responded positively. The following people will be attending :
- Arihia Bennett, Chief
Executive Officer, Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu
- Lianne Dalziel, Mayor,
Christchurch City Council
- David Ayers, Mayor,
Waimakariri District Council
- Kelvin Coe, Mayor, Selwyn
- Dame Margaret Bazely, Commissioners
Chair, Environment Canterbury
- Roger Sutton and Michelle Mitchell, Canterbury
Earthquake Recovery Authority
The key issues identified from the last Forum were:
• How CCC and the government will continue to relate beyond 2016, given that
there is an agreement about cost sharing between them – not only about the
central city rebuild, but also about ongoing work on horizontal infrastructure
• How the five statutory partners, named in the CER Act, will continue to
relate to one another, ECAN and the TLAs beyond 2016
• Who will undertake the monitoring of the recovery beyond 2016
• What will be the future use of the residential red zone
• The challenge of 2014 being a government election year
• How recognition of Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu's statutory role in the
recovery under the CER Act will be continued into the future beyond 2016
We are most interested to learn from the statutory partners about how the issues
identified above will be followed through. The interest,
passion, expertise and willingness to contribute amongst NGOs
were clearly demonstrated at the last Forum.
An Introduction to
OVTRK is available if you know other groups who
might wish to put themselves on the Register.
We would like to invite all of you to gather and address the transition
factors identified above at our next Forum. OVTRK organisations will then
be better informed to follow through our ongoing engagement with CERA.
See you on 10 March!
