1. Information and background
The Christchurch City Council ("the Council") is required through a rule in the Christchurch District Plan to establish a list (‘Register’) of Independent Urban Design Experts for Certification (‘Urban Design Experts’). These experts will be able to provide certification that developments in the Commercial and Central City Core zones meet the urban design requirements as part of the resource consent applications.
This certification process is an alternative approach to assessing urban design matters. The standard restricted discretionary consent application process where the assessment is undertaken by Council staff also remains an option for applicants. Once appointed to the Register, the Urban Design Expert may be engaged directly by Applicants (companies, organizations or private individuals) to assess the development and provide the urban design certification.
2. Project Scope & Scale
The purpose of this EOI is to select and admit suitably qualified and experienced urban designers to the Register. The appointments of experts to the Register will be for a term of up to five years. Reviews will be undertaken at the Councils discretion during this term.
It is the Council’s intention through this EOI that Urban Design Expert provide clear, concise responses to allow the Council to robustly evaluate Responses and create a Register of independent Urban Design Experts for certification purposes only.
