Victoria Square Public Forum:

Residents of Christchurch are invited to attend a Public Forum on Victoria Square to be held 7.30pm Tuesday 31st March at Knox Church Centre.
The organisers wish to thank:
Christ Lynch for agreeing to be Moderator,
Grant Edge Landscape Architect who co-designed the current layout of the current Victoria Square,
Dr Geoffrey Rice- author of a history of Victoria Square
Neiel Drain- who held the position of CCC Director of Parks and Recreation.
Neil Roberts (Chair Christchurch Civic Trust) says:
“The Panel has been set up with experts who will inform and encourage debate. In Chris Lynch we have a Moderator who is fair but inquisitive. It should be a great evening.”
“The Public Forum has been set up so Residents can question and actively debate the future of Victoria Square. Whether you supported CCDU’s plans or passionately opposed them, the Forum is a chance to part of the discussion. Lets be honest Christchurch loves a great debate! ”
“The Christchurch Civic Trust has a proud history of facilitating informed debate in Christchurch. This Public Forum is an event that we should have had at the beginning when CCDU first thought of changing the existing Victoria Square.
“Now that CCDU has stated it is starting with a “clean slate” this is good time to hold a Forum on Victoria Square.”
CCDU have been invited to send a representative to the meeting.
The Meeting will have a brief presentation by the Panelists followed by questions from the floor.
The aim of the meeting is to provide a background for Christchurch Residents when they write to or fill out the CCDU Questionnaire.
