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.

Uni-Cycle update

Christchurch City Council resumes work along the Uni-Cycle route on the north side of Ilam fields today. The work is expected to take around six weeks.

Construction of the Uni-Cycle route along Ilam Road is also expected to start this week. Most of the work will be carried out at night to minimise the impact on traffic.

Please take care when travelling through these areas. Follow all on-site signage and look out for construction crews and others.

More information about the Uni-Cycle route is available at https://ccc.govt.nz/transport/cycling/major-cycle-routes/cycle-routes/uni-cycle/

uni-cycle update – all of University Drive one-way

From today, Monday 9 January 2017, the one-way system on University Drive (heading east towards Clyde Road) will be in place along the whole length of University Drive.

  • Access to University Drive will be from Ilam Road only. There will continue to be no entry to University Drive from Clyde Road. Exit from University Drive will be via Clyde Road only.
  • Access to the Okeover, ICT, Law and Clyde car parks will be via Ilam Road only. When exiting the car parks, left turn only towards Clyde Road.
  • Pedestrians should follow the signed detour routes.
  • Cyclists can use Arts Road or Kirkwood Ave, or follow the signed detour route as well. Do not enter University Drive from Clyde Road and cycle into oncoming traffic.

Please take extra care when travelling through the area – slow down, follow onsite signage and look out for others.

The work on University Drive is expected to be completed in early February. More information about the Uni-Cycle route is available on the Christchurch City Council website.

Update: Uni-cycle work, Ilam fields

Please note the timeframe for completing Uni-Cycle work on Ilam fields has changed.

Work is currently being carried out on the existing path on the north side of Ilam Fields.

This work was scheduled to finish before Christmas, however due to unexpected delays with the contractor, the new expected completion date is early February.
