``Our relationship with the environment in which we live, our ‘sense of place’, affects all aspects of our life.

Heritage buildings support our sense of place, our feeling of continuity with the past, our need for something certain, within a world of constant change. They are not just visually pleasing luxuries but essential anchors which give us a sense of identity. They are touchstones by which we measure the present. They influence the way we feel, think and identify with the place in which we live.

Christchurch and Canterbury have traditionally been defined by their heritage buildings. Many have been lost as a result of the earthquakes which devastated the city and province in 2010 and 2011 and the future of many others hangs in the balance.

The Canterbury Earthquake Heritage Buildings Fund (CEHBF) is helping to save the best of our remaining buildings so they will continue to enrich our lives.

Heritage buildings are points of reference, markers of time and place. These remaining buildings remind us of our past and their preservation will ensure that the city which existed before the earthquakes will not be forgotten.

‘Building a Sense of Place’ documents buildings which have received financial assistance or have been targeted for assistance from the CEHBF.''
