The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
All Council facilities and buildings are closed as of Monday 23 March. This includes services centres, libraries and aquatic centres. Essential services remain in operation – this includes services such as roading, water, sewerage and stormwater, and refuse and recycling parks and collection.
Town Hall Cinemas remain open as it continues to operate within guidelines regarding the size of indoor groups.
As an employer the Council has a responsibility to ensure a safe working environment for staff and need to do so in line with physical distancing requirements. We also want to provide our residents, as a Greater Christchurch partner, with consistent messaging about public service provision and closures.
We know how important our facilities are to people’s physical and mental health. However, to support the Government’s efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19, we have decided to close our facilities as a precautionary measure until further notice.
Council staff are still at work and doing what is needed to keep things running while maintaining physical distancing in line with government COVID-19 advice.
While Council buildings may be closed we are still here to help. We encourage people to conduct business with us online or over the phone and will be posting regular updates on our website and social media channels regarding how we intend to maintain service levels within these new restrictions.
