Plan to turn Christchurch rest home into boarding house baffles residents

Jake Kenny Reporter from Community News

The residents of a Christchurch rest home might have left a long time ago, but a new breed of “professionals” could soon move in.

The facility, in a quiet Papanui street occupied by just 32 homes, is being remodelled into a boarding house to accommodate up to 75 people aged between 25 and 45.

The residents of a Christchurch rest home might have left a long time ago, but a new breed of “professionals” could soon move in.

The facility, in a quiet Papanui street occupied by just 32 homes, is being remodelled into a boarding house to accommodate up to 75 people aged between 25 and 45.

Residents are vehemently opposed to the 57-room facility and about 25 have written passionate submissions pleading for the boarding house not to be consented.
