What has your experience with Christchurch City Council been like?

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

In a bid to overturn a scathing approval rating, Christchurch City Council is making moves to create a new residents’ forum.

The council says it wants people to feel they are being listened to and their views are respected. It also wants more people to trust the council’s decision-making process.

In May, the council released its annual residents’ survey, showing just half of the city’s residents were satisfied with the services it provided – down from 62 per cent last year.

Some 23 per cent of respondents were dissatisfied with council's performance and 27 per cent were neutral. It is the lowest result since 2007, when the question was first asked as part of the survey.

How do you feel about the council's performance? And will a new forum help? Give us your thoughts below.

Almost $500,000 from Christchurch Cave Rock apartments sale sitting in limbo

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

A dispute over vandalism and flooding damage means nearly $500,000 has been withheld from the sale of Christchurch's Cave Rock apartments.

The Sumner complex’s new owners say the sellers neglected to keep the property secure after an agreement was reached but before settlement was made. They claim the damage has forced them to change their plans for the site, including demolishing part of the complex they had planned to repair.

Some former owners claim the buildings were already badly damaged before the “as is, where is” agreement was made, and dispute they are liable for any of the claimed damage. They are frustrated an independent lawyer holding $480,000 of the sale price will not release any of it until all sellers reach an agreement with the buyers.
