Planned satellite city[edit]

This article needs to cover the grand development plans for Rolleston from the 1970s - 1980s. If I recall correctly a largely independent satellite town of 50,000+ was planned in order to preserve Christchurch's green belt. Actual development has been much more modest and haphazard, and the Chch green belt has been eroded, built upon, and in some parts, liquefied. Sources will probably be offline.dramatic (talk) 18:36, 18 September 2010 (UTC)
