    Locals to consider council Cathedral grant

    Christchurch residents are being consulted by council, to see if a $10 million grant towards the reinstatement of the cathedral will go ahead.

    It's still unclear whether Christchurch City Council will contribute $10 million towards restoring the ChristChurch Cathedral.

    In an attempt to end uncertainty over the fate of the earthquake damaged cathedral, the council had agreed earlier this year, to give a grant of $10m, however, it's based on the community's approval.

    Consultation with residents starts on Thursday, to see if the grant will go ahead.

    "We have made it very clear that we cannot finalise our contribution towards the cathedral's reinstatement until we have consulted with our community," Mayor Lianne Dalziel said.

    "This process of consultation will enable council to consider the grant, and the terms under which such a grant can be made, taking into account all perspectives."

    The council's contribution was made subject to a consultative procedure, so it could be considered as part of the 2018-28 long term plan.

    The Anglican Church's synod voted last month, to reinstate the Cathedral, with support from the government.
