What's your experience with pre-fabricated homes?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

The average Christchurch ratepayer could be an extra $250 a year out of pocket if steep regional council rate hikes thought to be one among the highest in the country are brought in.

Environment Canterbury (ECan) is proposing increasing rates by either 24.5 per cent or 18 per cent, to cover the fallout of the Government’s new freshwater regulations.

This would be on top of district council rate rises, such as Christchurch City Council’s proposed five per cent increase, leaving many concerned about the combined toll of the cost to ratepayers. Read more here.

Kia kaha Canterbury! Have you got any messages of support?

February 22 will mark the 10th anniversary of the Christchurch Earthquakes.

With uncertainties surrounding commemorations due to recent Covid-19 restrictions, the Christchurch City Council will live stream the event so that people worldwide will have to opportunity to pay their respects.

The council has worked closely with the Quakes Families Trust to create a memorial service that will acknowledge and commemorate those that lost their lives and all that have endured hardship due to the disaster.

“We want people, no matter where they are in the world, to feel part of the commemorations so we will be live-streaming both the national memorial service on 22 February and the free concert – Ōtautahi Together – on 28 February,” says Christchurch City Council Civic and International Relations Manager Matt Nichols.

185 Cantabrians lost their lives when a magnitude 6.2 earthquake struck at a depth of 5km near south-east Christchurch in 2011.
