Poll: Would you prefer costs for services and public facilities (like libraries and pools) to go up, or rates bills to go up?

Pursuing a 0 per cent rates increase will have an "enormous impact" on the Christchurch community, city councillors warn.

A planned $34 million swimming pool and library development in Hornby could be delayed, the cost of a swim could go up and so could library charges, community grants could get the chop, and the New Brighton hot salt water pools could remain closed — everything is being considered to save money, but nothing is likely to be decided without another round of community consultation.

So what do you think? Would you want to pay more for services and public facilities, or would you prefer to have a higher rates bill? Or do you think there's any other way the council should save money? Read more here and tell us what you think in the comments below.

We are excited that we will be back in the office from Monday 18th of May! Our new hours are Monday to Friday 9am to 2pm.

To see us please ensure you call the office, or email us to make an appointment. If our new hours are not suitable for you we can arrange appointments outside of these hours. This will allow us to limit numbers for our safety and yours! To comply with government requirements there will be a contact tracing register to complete and social distancing rules apply.



Trans-Tasman and South Pacific bookings – hopefully Australia, and Pacific Islands will be an option in the next few months. If you have an Australian or Pacific Island holiday in mind, register now for updates, or sign up to our database.



New Zealand is an amazing holiday destination - look at the inbound tourist numbers we usually have! It’s time to see our own country until borders open. We can book your New Zealand holidays for you and really would appreciate everyone’s support – be it an airfare to see a relative, or a full on adventure family trip – we can do this for you. Please also encourage your friends and family to ‘like’ our facebook page to receive further updates.



On another note, we would like to thank everyone for your patience and support while we have been working through the process of putting existing trips in credit, or cancelling and awaiting refunds. Processes are taking much longer than they normally would – rest assured as we receive an outcome for each current booking we are contacting you. We are doing our absolute best for you and look forward to helping you plan your next journey! Thank you for all the kind and understanding emails we’ve received!

It was nice to have a Community Board meeting after a while, even if it was via Zoom. This was one step closer to having a 'public community board meeting'.
In March, the Council temporarily revoked the Board delegations in response to the Government’s announcement the country was going into COVID-19 Alert Level 4 lockdown, which meant there were no Community Board meetings since then.

Hello everyone,

Our cat Marley went missing 12 days ago and he hasn’t returned home yet (he’s never done this before).

If you see him, or you have him please get in touch as we are desperate to have our fur baby back home with us. 😔

Please check your sheds, garages, gardens and under your deck in case he is hiding anywhere and too scared to come out.

I will attach a link below of the post I have put all over Facebook (this includes images of him and a little explanation)

www.facebook.com...

He is a grey and white domestic short hair kitty. 18 months old, desexed, microchipped.

He is extremely loved and missed.

Please share around to help us get our Marley home to us safe and sound.

Thank you everyone
