Christchurch Cathedral – church says critics omitting facts

The Anglican Church has criticised the group stopping it from deconstructing the earthquake-damaged Christchurch Cathedral, saying its review of the church’s decision omitted facts and ignored escalating costs.

An advertisement published in The Press  laid out the Church Property Trustees’ (CPT) argument against restoring the Christchurch Cathedral after the Canterbury earthquakes.

The notice, headlined “important facts”, states there was a “need for the correct information about the Cathedral in the Square to be known”.

Christchurch Cathedral restoration campaigner Jim Anderton has hit back  saying the CPT public criticism of the restoration effort is “factually incorrect”.
