TEMPORARY ACCOMMODATION CHECKSHEET –
CHRISTCHURCH CITY AREA
Residential - Two or more accommodation units


This Checksheet outlines the requirements and standards for temporary residential accommodation involving two or more
accommodation units in the Christchurch City Plan area.

The requirements and standards are contained in Clause 7 of the Canterbury Earthquake (Resource Management Act Permitted
Activities) Order 2011 and the associated public notice issued by the Council on 9 April 2011.

Please complete all sections in the Customer Use column, using Y where the standard is complied with, N where the standard is not
complied with, or NA where the standard is not relevant to the activity, and provide any supporting/explanatory comments in the
middle column.

NOTE: If your proposed temporary accommodation activity is not included in the list of activities below, or if any of the following
standards are not complied with, the temporary accommodation is not a permitted activity and you will instead need to apply for a
site specific public notice to be issued, using form P-031a. If the proposed activity does not meet the requirements list in (A)(1)
below, it is not allowed under the Order and a resource consent will need to be applied for instead.

NOTES:

1)   The above permitted activity standards solely permit breach of the Christchurch City Plan by temporary
     accommodation as defined in the Canterbury Earthquake (Resource Management Act Permitted Activities) Order 2011.
     All other statutory requirements and regulations applying to the activity or site (e.g. building consent, animal control,
     resource consent from Environment Canterbury, Ministry of Education standards, liquor licensing, health licensing)
     must also be complied with.

2) The Canterbury Earthquake (Resource Management Act Permitted Activities) Order 2011 expires on 18 April 2016. Any
   temporary accommodation established under this legislation can therefore only remain on site until that date.

3)   All terms used in the above requirements and standards are defined in either:
          1.   Canterbury Earthquake (Resource Management Act Permitted Activities) Order 2011
          2.   Christchurch City Plan (Definitions)
          3.   Glossary for the Public Notice (definition of ‘accommodation unit’)
          4.   English dictionary

     The terms are required to be interpreted in the order above as specific terms have been defined.

4)   A building consent is likely to be required where building work is proposed, or if there is a change of use of a building.
     You can check this by contacting our Duty Building Consent Officer on 941-8999.

5)   Please note that establishing temporary accommodation on a property may have implications for insurance or other
     matters that are outside the Council’s jurisdiction.
