Clutha Country and Catlins Residents
Do you own a batch, crib, holiday home or rental property which is standing empty in Clutha Country or The Catlins which you would be willing to let victims of the Canterbury earthquake stay in or at for a little while at no charge? If your answer is yes please contact Mary at Christchurch City Council on 03 941 8999 to leave your contact details and some one from the Civil Defence team in Canterbury will get in touch with you and discuss terms and conditions directly with you.
