What has your experience with Christchurch City Council been like?

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.

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 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.
