New temporary Lyttelton Service Centre to open

Christchurch City Council will open a new temporary service centre in Lyttelton on Monday 10 December.

The Council has leased a building at 15 London Street for three years which it will convert into the temporary service centre. There will be a service centre counter for Council payments and Lyttelton-Mt Herbert community board staff will be based there. It will be open from 9am-5pm on weekdays.

The Lyttelton Service Centre at 33 Lyttelton Street has been closed since it was damaged in the February 2011 earthquake. A temporary service centre has been based in the Lyttelton Library, 35-37 London Street, since last year.

To allow staff to set up in the new premises on Friday, the temporary service centre based in the library will close at 5pm on Thursday 6 December.

General Manager Public Affairs Lydia Aydon says the new temporary service centre will offer all the usual services, including the ability to make rates payments and apply for rates rebates, pay dog registrations and access drainage plans.

“While investigations are continuing to determine the future of the closed Lyttelton Service Centre, we are pleased to be able to offer Lyttelton residents a dedicated service centre space.”

The earthquake-damaged Lyttelton Service Centre is one of the Council’s 30 priority projects which in September it prioritised for further investigations, funding and, where possible, repairs.

Until the new temporary service centre opens on Monday, the nearest service centre is the temporary Linwood Service Centre, which is situated next to the Linwood Mini Library, 180 Smith Street.
