It's basically impossible as outlined by previous posters. What works for someone wont work for someone else.
Its going to take a long time for EQC to get to everyone but now that the areas have been defined into zones, I think that things will move along a lot faster.
As far as the CBD goes, I'm not too sure what the perceived problems are there. There are a lot of buildings coming down before anything can go up.
Do people actually realise how massive the task is?



Average house price/GV in the east is $325,000
Govt pays out GV to red zoners
Average price for section currently $210,000 (none avaliable tho except in Sumner/Mt Pleasant :crazy: )
Build an average 3 bed home on it for $250,000 as all avaliable houses for sale are sold. Nothing to rent
$20,000 min for driveways/lanscaping etc.

No bastards gonna be able to go into town shopping with an extra $150 odd K on the mortgage. There will probably be even less shoppers/disposable income than before so why bother. Get the cranes and diggers out of the CBD and out making subdivisions.

Blunt I know, but you get the point.

those picassa pics are pretty eye opening / jaw dropping - sooo much open space in some locations. And the ongoing realisation of just how wildly varied the reality of this whole thing is eg; dogsbollocks & trails experiences so, so different to mine. I live out east (south brighton) but by pure dumb luck my home is fine, my place and nature of work is fine, most of my life is just fine. So my perspective on "how's the recovery going? " can't help but be very very different to those who have got hammered, both materially / financially & psychologically.

Kia Kaha to anyone & everyone out there who is doing it hard :thumbsup:

I do get your point, however there are 390,000 people in CHCH, not all of them are affected by the red zones.
In fact well over 350,000 of them arent, they still need somewhere to shop and socialise, and whatever else people did in the CBD.

Still sucks if you are in the red zone. :(

It'd be nice if they made it into a Memorial Park, for the ones who perished and the quakes in general.

The white zone is for immediate loading and unloading of passengers only. There is no stopping in the red zone...
