Heritage buildings future use

Here’s your chance to have a say if you have an interest in using one of 17 Christchurch City Council-owned heritage buildings whose future use is yet to be determined.

The Council is inviting applications from individuals, groups and organisations interested in using and/or helping to fund the restoration of these Council-owned heritage facilities across the city and Banks Peninsula.

Most of these buildings are yet to be repaired following the 2010/11 Canterbury earthquakes. The Council is open to suggestions that will respect and retain these buildings’ heritage values and help to see them restored and reused swiftly and successfully.

They include four buildings in the central city:

  • Old Municipal Chambers (Our City O-Tautahi)
  • Thomas Edmonds Band Rotunda
  • Thomas Edmonds Pavilion (currently being repaired)
  • Robert McDougall Art Gallery

There are also 13 community buildings across the City and Banks Peninsula:

  • Former Lyttelton Borough Council Stables
  • Kukupa Hostel
  • Little River Coronation Library
  • Yew Cottage
  • Belfast School Master’s House
  • Kapuatohe Cottage
  • Mona Vale Bath House
  • Chokebore Lodge
  • Sextons House, Barbadoes Cemetery
  • Bangor Street No.3 Pump House
  • Coronation Hall
  • Second World War Bunkers/Cracroft Cavern
  • Sign of the Takahe

The closing dates for applications for the community buildings is 29 March 2018. The closing date for expressions of interest for the four central city buildings is 3 April 2018.
