Posted 16 Jun 2016 by AvonOtakaro Popular

We are very excited by today’s announcement of the appointment of Ivan Iafeta as Chief Executive of Regenerate Christchurch,” says Rev Peter Beck, convenor of Eastern Vision.

 

Eastern Vision is a group of community leaders that advocates for decision-making regarding the future of the eastern suburbs to include effective participation of local communities, integrated planning and collaborative transparent approaches.

 

“We have worked successfully with Ivan since late 2010 in diverse capacities on various earthquake recovery initiatives involving engagement with affected communities,” says Beck.

 

Evan Smith Co-Chair of Avon-Ōtākaro Network adds, “Ivan has always demonstrated an empathy with and willingness to understand the issues and aspirations of communities and work alongside them on solutions.”

 

Avon-Ōtākaro Network advocates for turning the Ōtākaro red zone into a naturally restored eco-reserve and multi-purpose river park from the city to the sea.

 

“We look forward to contributing to regeneration planning with him for the Residential Red Zone and its integration with the regeneration of New Brighton and the central city,” says Smith.
