The chairman of EQC’s board, Sir Maarten Wevers, has resigned just as the government steps in to speed up the settlement of Canterbury’s unresolved earthquake damage claims. Megan Woods, the minister responsible for the EQC, said she was appointing an independent ministerial advisor to work with the board and management on a plan to speed up the settlement of claims. “I’ve made it clear I am not satisfied with where EQC is in respect of the Canterbury earthquake work seven years on from the February 22nd event,” she said on Friday.
