ChCh2026 Vision:

Central City Housing Fund

 

Plan:

$400m to actually fund the building of homes in the East Frame and wider central city area. 

  • Will build neighborhoods and communities.
  • Will offer homes for rent initially and rent-to-buy but not to investors. 
  • Will look at ways of government maintaining interest in any price appreciation. 
  • Look at different ownership models, such as co-housing and cooperatives.
  • Look to make Christchurch a laboratory for new housing technology, such as passive housing and Wiki Houses.
