Brownlee: Cathedral discussions ongoing

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 20/12/2016

The future of earthquake-damaged Christchurch Cathedral remains under discussion, says the Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration, Gerry Brownlee.

The Cathedral Working Group was formed in June to consider restoration options and delivered its final recommendations three weeks ago.

Mr Brownlee says the proposals were considered by the new cabinet at its meeting on Tuesday.

"However, discussions continue with the Church Property Trustees," he said.

"Details about what was discussed at cabinet will remain confidential."

The cathedral has sat derelict since the deadly 2011 earthquake while debate has raged over whether it should be restored, or demolished and a new church built in its place.
