A neighbourhood walks programme has commenced in order to gauge people’s thoughts and experiences of the different Central City neighbourhoods. Informally, the walks have been an opportunity for people to discover new spaces, talk with each other about Central City living and make connections with like-minded people.
The walks are led by a local resident and are typically attended by other residents and people who are interested in living in the Central City. To date, four walks have been completed in the Inner City East, Central City South, Moa and Avon/Chester neighbourhoods.

The programme of neighbourhood walks is funded by the Christchurch City Council and organised by Te Putahi(external link).
Information gathered on the walks is being used to help inform neighbourhood planning and the Council’s Central City Residential Programme(external link).
A further five walks are planned. If you are interested in leading or attending a walk in a Central City neighbourhood please email email@example.com.
