TRADITIONAL: Options for restoring
the cathedral as it was, or a new but
traditionally-styled look (far right).
SELWYN RESIDENTS appear
to be split on what shape the
future Christ Church Cathedral
Local people approached by the
Central Canterbury News at the
weekend could not agree on the
design, but did agree it was time
to make a decision and let those
concerned get on with it.
Chris Logan of Rolleston said
the bureaucrats should stay out
of it and let the church make its
Three options are being touted
for the earthquake-damaged
One proposal is a complete res-
toration of the existing building,
estimated to cost between $104
million and $221m, and taking
anywhere from six to 22 years to
complete. Another is a traditional
reinterpretation of the old build-
ing in modern materials, which
could cost from $85m to $181m
and take between five to 22 years
to build. A new contemporary
design with a sculptural spire is
the third option, with a cost of
$56m to $74m and a build time of
four to nine years.
Mr Logan favoured the contem-
porary option because of the price,
and the money saved could be
better spent helping others.
Katie Morris of Rolleston was
another strong supporter of the
contemporary design. She said
nothing is ever going to be the
same after the earthquake, so it is
probably time to move on.
Ms Morris cited cost and the
timeframe involved with the other
options as the principal reasons
she favoured the contemporary
We need to move forward, so
why not do that by having some-
She said people tend to be
afraid of change, but as long as
the cathedral is replaced with
something suitable, she cannot
see the problem.
Her thoughts were echoed by
Robert Wearing of Tai Tapu, who
said the current cathedral had
had its day .
He said if the ground was
unstable, it needed to be fixed, so
he would prefer either starting
again from scratch or moving to
He favoured the contemporary
design from the three options that
have been proposed.
He also said there was too much
time-wasting going on.
Those in charge of the decision
needed to get on with it and
make up their minds .
Selwyn resident Harry Rankin
disagreed with their choice.
He said the contemporary
option was quite ugly and did
not fit with the traditional style
Despite the money and time-
frames involved, he said a full
restoration was the option that
should be favoured.
Rolleston s David Drake said as
a true Cantabrian he supported
the full rebuild.
I m not sure of the costs, but as
far as I m concerned, it s part of
Canterbury and it needs to be
fully restored to its former glory.
Trish Worsfold of Greendale
thought the subject was causing
too much conflict -- most likely by
too many people putting their
