Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey was thrilled to host Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Minister Hon Gerry Brownlee in Rangiora’s town centre last week to view progress on the new Conway Laneway Retail Development on High Street.

The visit by the Minister responsible for Earthquake Recovery cements what a great year of progress 2015 had been for the region, Doocey said.

“2015 has been a year of milestones, new beginnings and openings for Waimakariri and I know many shoppers are looking forward to the new retail developments opening in October,” Doocey said.

The Conway Laneway Development is part of council's North of High Street Precinct.  Conway Laneway developers Lindsay Bain and Andrew Wenborn briefed the Minister and Doocey on the project and were joined by Waimakariri District Council CEO Jim Palmer and Deputy Mayor Kevin Felstead.
