One small step

Gerry Brownlee (seen left, in an incredibly natural pose) announced yesterday that >90% of Christchurch homes were on land that could be built on. Considering that most of Christchurch is on solid land from the west of the railway line, that may mean the 10% comprising our neighbourhood on the east is an uninhabitable bog.

So there's no jubilation yet; the Big Brownlee presents a report to Cabinet on Monday, then their decision is communicated to the newly-elected councils, and then someone thinks up a way of telling the home owners.

So it goes, as Kurt Vonnegut used to say.
