Designing a solution to dust

Dust is a concern for many Christchurch residents. Want to be part of the solution?

We made a commitment in the Long-Term Plan 2021-31 to tackle the ongoing issue of dust in Christchurch.

The current approach to monitoring and compliance isn’t working, so we want to try something new.

A new approach

By working with industry and community, we tackled the long-standing odour issue at Bromley.

The programme was a big success, so we want to take a similar approach to Christchurch’s dust problem.

To do this, we need your help.

Co-design workshops - how you can help

Co-design workshops bring community, industry and councils together to get to the heart of the problem and put workable solutions in place.

They start by setting the scene to better understand the wider community’s concerns and experiences. They then move on to finding and designing solutions.

Working out the best approach is what co-design workshops are all about.

A bit more detail

Initially, we’ll be focusing on the dust issue in the North-West region of Christchurch, but anyone from anywhere in Christchurch can ask to be involved.

We expect there to be up to seven workshops every fortnight starting on Thursday 28 October (5.30-7.30pm), with a break over the holiday period.

If you’d like to be part of the team to find a solution to Christchurch’s dust problem or just receive updates on the progress of the workshops, please click the Get involved/Stay informed button at the bottom of this page. Please let us know by Tuesday 26 October 2021.
