Three more councillors for Christchurch

12:59 pm on 8 April 2016

Christchurch is to get an extra three city councillors at this year's local body election.

The council requested the increase during a review of its representation, which is done by local bodies every six years.

It asked to break the city up into 16 wards, with a single councillor elected for each.

The Local Body Commission has supported the proposal.
