The Council uses catchments to assign contributions for neighbourhood parks, stormwater and flood protection, and transport.

Catchment maps 

The following maps are an overview of the catchments for which development contributions are required for activities that use area specific catchments. For activities which use a district-wide catchment approach no map is provided - the catchment is all part of the Christchurch City Council territorial local authority area. 

The maps are also available in hard copy upon request to the Council by phoning 03 941 8999 or emailing
