Community views are being sought on what rules should be included in the Christchurch District Plan to manage the effects of home-share accommodation.
From today, people are invited to give their feedback on five different options Christchurch City Council is exploring to manage home-share accommodation in the residential and rural zones of Christchurch and Banks Peninsula.
None of the five options the Council is exploring are aimed at people who rent out a spare room in their house as home-share accommodation. They are aimed at those who rent out entire properties in residential or rural zones while they are not present.
The five options are:
“We want to hear our communities’ views on which of these options, if any, they prefer and to get their feedback on what they see as the main issues. The feedback we receive will help guide decision-making on how we manage home-share accommodation in our district,’’ says Council Head of Planning and Strategic Transport David Griffiths.
People have until Monday 2 March to give their feedback.
