What's Happening

The series of earthquakes that began 4 September 2010 caused critical loss and damage to the sport and recreation infrastructure in Greater Christchurch.

A number of the region’s most important and utilised facilities were damaged beyond repair or required significant renovation. In addition, walking and cycling tracks, sports venues for major events, flat water spaces and school sports fields were rendered out of action. To date, progress has been made, with immediate and transitional facilities to ensure that sport and recreation remains active and viable.

These and other recovery strategies have seen sport and recreation return to 95% of its level prior to February 2011. They have included the opening of the Graham Condon Sport and Recreation Centre, repairs to full capacity of Cowles Stadium, the opening of a new aquatic centre in Rolleston and the establishment of Apollo High Performance Sports Centre at Jellie Park.

Attention has been given to both the urgency of the project – its purpose and timing - as well as projects that addressed shortfalls in facilities and resources prior to the series of earthquakes (e.g. indoor courts). Temporary or transitional developments to replace immediate loss will still enable residents to return to participating and excelling in their chosen sport or recreation.

Projects have been assigned priority by considering:

  1. The degree to which current and anticipated need will exceed facility and space provision.
  2. The number of people currently affected and anticipated to remain affected into the future.
  3. Importance to Cantabrians.
  4. The degree to which the project is aligned with stakeholder planning for greater Christchurch.
  5. The degree to which proposed development meets industry best practice.
