Council renumbers Old Tai Tapu Road properties
12 April 2007
Christchurch City Council is to renumber 31 properties in Old Tai Tapu Road because of recent confusion with property numbering in the rural area.
Selwyn District Council has changed its Rapid Numbering System in the road and this has highlighted inconsistencies in the numbering of 31 properties which are located within the Christchurch City boundary, says Council Information Services Manager Stephen Bensberg.
The boundary between Christchurch City Council and Selwyn District Council cuts through Old Tai Tapu Road.
"Selwyn District Council recently removed the first three digits of property numbers in Old Tai Tapu Road and this has caused confusion with property numbering along the remainder of the road within the city boundary.
"To eliminate this confusion, Christchurch City is to renumber 31 properties. The changes will take effect from 1 May 2007."
Mr Bensberg says the changes will be disruptive and Council apologises in advance to those affected residents for any inconvenience.
"The City Council has advised New Zealand Post of the changes and has arranged to cover the cost of redirecting the mail of those affected for four months – until the end of August 2007.
"Council will also advise emergency services of the changes. The Rapid Numbering System is important as it enables greater accuracy for emergency services to locate properties in a rural area," he says.
