The controversial relocation of Christchurch's Citizens' War Memorial has received financial backing for a proposed move to Cranmer Square.

The Christchurch Earthquake Appeal Trust (CEAT), set up to administer post-earthquake donations, has confirmed it will "support" the removal of the 82-year-old cenotaph, which has stood alongside Christ Church Cathedral since 1937, if resource consent is approved.

Moving the 300-tonne cenotaph is estimated to cost up to $1.5 million, but CEAT secretary Neil Cooper would not say how much the trust would cover "as we've not made this figure public yet".

Had to get in the passengers seat and manoeuvre myself across the gear stick, not very lady like. Again today asked the person parked to move across, I am average size the lines just seem narrow. Can get also get dinged in the doors when it’s so narrow. The designers need to think about the customers using these carpark areas before trying to just get the maximum amounts of cars into the smallest space. What have you found? The new Mitre 10 no problem seems much wider.

Should NZ follow suit?
