The Christchurch City Council is currently seeking public feedback on a range of options to manage unhosted home-share accommodation (e.g Airbnb, Bookabach etc) through the District Plan. Unhosted home-share accommodation includes whole homes that are let out for accommodation while the owner is not on site.

The period for public feedback is open and closes on Monday, 2 March 2020.

You can visit to read about the options being considered. If you wish to submit feedback, you can visit the Have your Say webpage and share your thoughts or email your comments to

Once the feedback period closes, comments will be considered and a recommendation made on a preferred option, which may include a plan change. There will then be an additional opportunity to make a formal submission on a more detailed proposal, subject to the preferred option and whether a plan change is required.
