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.
Available to Christchurch people who have low incomes, limited assets and a significant and serious housing need.
News, property maintenance and events for our tenants that are coming up in their community.
Temporary and emergency housing information.
Council has decided to create a separate entity to manage its social housing portfolio.
We have a proud history of providing social housing to the people of Christchurch since the early 1920s.
