Social housing in Christchurch
Christchurch City Council has been providing rental accommodation for people in real need of affordable housing since 1938.
Operating under the name City Housing, our rental accommodation portfolio of more than 2,640 units (prior to the Canterbury Earthquakes) spread throughout most suburbs is second only in size to Housing New Zealand Corporation.
Although rents charged are significantly lower than market rates, our housing policy requires that social housing be financially self-supporting and not funded from rates.
