Information about all 4 options for managing future growth has been prepared for the Greater Christchurch area. For more detailed information about the impact of each option upon the areas of the District Councils of Banks Peninsula, Selwyn and Waimakariri within Greater Christchurch (see the study area map for the boundaries) and Christchurch City, summaries have been prepared.

These summaries describe changes expected under each option with the districts and the city, and identify key locations where changes might occur. The summaries are not intended as substitutes for the full option descriptions on this website and in the So many options booklet. They have been prepared to complement that information and give residents living in different parts of the Greater Christchurch region a sense of what changes they might expect to see closer to home.
