The Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority has authorized the demolition of 1200 Christchurch ( 50%) inner city buildings many of them are listed with the Historic Places Trust.
Evidence of the carnage can be found on the CERA web site http://cera.govt.nz/demolitions. The few buildings which haven't been pulled down yet should be considered for repairs and strengthening.
This initiative is aimed at protecting the city's identity and it's economic recovery as many businesses are forced out of the CBD with nowhere to go because of Cera's injudicious recovery strategy.
