Libraries: All Waimakariri District Libraries are closed on Labour Day, Monday 27 October.


Southbrook Park Car Park - The Council is upgrading the car park and accessway at Southbrook Park. The work is scheduled to start on Monday 20 October and should be completed by Wednesday 23 December. During this period the accessway will be closed to the general public. Limited access will be provided for sport and recreation events. These groups are advised to contact their Southbrook Park representative if access is required at any other times. For any further enquiries please contact Dan Lewis, phone 03 311 8900 or email

Building Consent Applications - Delay - Please note that, in the interim period while the Council is in the process of changing over to its new computer system, there could be delays in the processing of Building Consent applications. We, and our IT contractors, have allocated extra resources to addressing these delays and we hope to be able to return to a more satisfactory level of service as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience delays may cause.


Changes at Southbrook Resource Recovery Park - There will be road making undertaken at the recycling drop-off area at Southbrook RRP on Thursday 20 October (weather-dependent). The bins are also being moved, and signage changed. This should provide a better driving and parking environment, and reduce risks to the public from the forklift being driven around in the recycling area. There will be some disruption to traffic during the work; we ask customers to please be patient.

The Council is Seeking Views About How We Do the Talking - The Council is reviewing how we go about engaging the community so we can consider community views in our decision-making … and we want to know your thoughts on how Council ‘does the talking before the deciding’.
