New resident info

When you first move to a new area there are always questions - what day is the rubbish collected? Is there recycling? What kind of wood burner am I allowed?

Our Ravenswood team can help answer many of your questions and the Waimakariri District Council also provides useful information on their website for newcomers to the area. To read all about their welcome packs, newcomers’ network and neighbourhood support, visit the New to the District page on their website. 

The Council's Community Team produces a number of useful publications, including the monthly Chatter newsletter and the Community and Volunteer directories.

For more information or to download any of the Council’s community directories visit Community Information page on the Waimakariri District Council's website.
