Christchurch City Council announce new housing trust

Feb 24, 2016 | News

Seven trustees have been confirmed for the new Otautahi Community Housing Trust, which is made up of three Council trustees (Deputy Mayor Vicki Buck and Councillors Andrew Turner and Paul Lonsdale), and four independent trustees (Alex Skinner, Pam Sharpe, Lloyd Mander and Stephen Phillips).

Under the new structure, the Council proposes to keep full ownership of its approximately 2,270 open social housing units and land, while leasing the portfolio to the Otautahi Community Housing Trust to manage.

The trust would be responsible for tenancy management, rent-setting and the day-to-day maintenance of the units while major repairs, renewals and the development of new social housing would remain the Council’s domain.
