    Be nice to see some figures on the air-pollution effects of wider use of eco-logburners (currently allowed only if replacing an older solid-fuel burner).

    Definitely.
    Especially if they are only pellet-burners. (They dont work when the power is off.)

    Especially if they are pellet burners- those things only work while the electricity is going-

    There's a lot of good to be said for old tech. Sometimes old tech means best tech.

    It's almost as if CERA's conducting a pogrom against any residual traces of architectural character in Chch.

    Why, it leads me to think of the TV Series " This Is Not My Life" and I imagine in more ways like that for you guys down there.
    Albany up here kinda springs to mind also.

    It's the "no cars over three years old" rule that is news to me. The very opposite of a sustainable city. Ngai Tahu should hang their heads in shame for joining in. My only favourable for gated subdiviisons is that they keep the people who think like that corralled together.

    Yep. Holy crap, I don’t want to live in that shiny, characterless place.

    Unless...do we all get a Charles Mesure?

    Because it's an original idea, and therefore not eligible for NZOA funding?

    Carter, a prominent Christchurch property developer and investor, is playing his cards close to his chest.

    The prescriptive rules in volume two of the CBD plan around building heights, car parking, lane ways and design requirements will be unnecessary, he says.

    Other developers agree the detailed rules are probably history.

    So how will Carter meet the spirit of the CBD plan based in part on the wishes of Christchurch people.

    “I’m in a general way reasonably supportive of volume one [of the CBD plan] which is setting that image but now needs to be developed into reality,” Carter says

    Hmmmmm. This gives me a bad feeling.

    As a Kai Tahu, I totally agree.
    Note: there is NO overall tribal consultation for these kind of decisions. They're made by the business hierarchy of TRONT.
