Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Commission – What Is It?

Well, it’s a very different beast from the Earthquake Commission (EQC).

CERC was set up by the government in the early days after 4 September and its functions include coordinating the Government and local body recovery effort. It is also supposed to be the chief means of communication between the three councils and the Government.

It consists of three Government appointees, an ECan Commissioner and the Mayors of Christchurch, Selwyn and Waimakariri.

They are retiring Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry director-general Murray Sherwin, Canterbury regional council commissioner Dame Margaret Bazely, earthquake engineer David Hopkins, social expert Arihia Bennett, Mayor Kelvin Coe, Mayor Bob Parker and yours truely.

    Does it have a website?

    It did have the beginnings of a website, but as CERC no longer exists, its website would be irrelevant!
