Development Christchurch Limited (DCL) was established as one of three new public sector agencies that collaborate in the regeneration and redevelopment of Christchurch, New Zealand. DCL’s purpose is laid out in our Statement of Intent – we’re here to contribute to the well-being of Christchurch through the improved economic, social, community, and environmental outcomes that successful development, investment and regeneration bring.
We are carrying out this mandate by facilitating, supporting and transforming development and investment opportunities to deliver strong outcomes to the people of Christchurch.
Transforming by accelerating the redevelopment and regeneration of selected parts of our city; working alongside others, using our custodianship of land, and our commercial expertise to transform the city’s urban landscape.
Facilitating development by unlocking opportunities for others. We use our professional and community networks and relationships to break down barriers and influence others, including our Council family, to create and accelerate development opportunities.
Supporting Council by acting as its trusted advisor. We provide strategic commercial advice and support to the elected members and executive team of Christchurch City Council.
DCL is working on a portfolio of exciting place-making projects that will have tangible benefits for the people of Christchurch. As a wholly owned subsidiary of Christchurch City Holdings Ltd, DCL has an important role to play in the present phase of regeneration. A key part of our vision is to ensure communities are involved in the decisions that affect them.
