Community outcomes 2015/18

The outcomes provide the Council with direction on how best to meet the current and future needs of our communities. To meet our obligations to provide good-quality local infrastructure, local public services, and regulatory functions.

The community outcomes have been grouped into five key strategic directions:

  • Liveable city
  • Strong communities
  • Healthy environment
  • Prosperous economy
  • Good governance.

Within the five groups, the community outcomes describe how we want our community to be. Under each of the community outcomes are way-finder outcomes - more focused outcomes that provide us with direction to achieve our community outcomes.

The outcomes align with key planning documents and strategies such as the Greater Christchurch Urban Development Strategy and the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan.

Together they form a blueprint for Christchurch to be the network of interesting and engaged communities we all aspire to live in. Consequently, everything the Council does in its day-to-day work is focused on promoting the achievement of our community outcomes.
