And the demand for different types of housing is likely to change to cater for the growth and ageing population. A new report to be discussed by the Greater Christchurch Partnership Committee tomorrow, predicts how the city and neighbouring districts will look over the next three decades. The report, called Housing and Business Development Capacity Assessment, will be used for future planning. It said the population of Christchurch and the two districts, referred to as greater Christchurch, was likely to increase to 650,000 by 2048. In Christchurch alone, there would need to be an extra 46,400 houses built in the next 30 years. The report was a collaboration between the Christchurch City, Selwyn District and Waimairiri District councils, Environment Canterbury, Canterbury District Health Board, Regenerate Christchurch and the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet as part of the Settlement Pattern Review. •Turn to page 3 DON’T MISS OUT!
