How can Christchurch's central city be revitalised?

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

Free car parking, rates holidays for owners of new properties and financial incentives for developers should all be considered to ensure central Christchurch flourishes rather than flounders, councillor James Gough believes.

Gough has been tasked by mayor Lianne Dalziel to ensure plans designed to revitalise the heart of Christchurch do not fall flat. He believes ignoring the central city's regeneration and revitalisation means you "might as well write off the next three years".

What do you think needs to be done to regenerate the city centre? Tell us in the comments below.
