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".
Christchurch Police are reminding tradies to lock it or lose it, following increasing reports of thefts from 4x4s.
Vehicles have been targeted in the Lyttleton and Corsair Bay areas.
Christchurch Metro Area Prevention Manager Inspector Leairne Dow says that tradies in particular should be cautious to secure valuable tools left in vehicles.
Anyone who is the victim of crime or has information that may be useful to Police should let Police know immediately.
