Smart Cities Christchurch is exploring new technology and approaches that will help make our city a smarter, safer place to live, work and play.

New smart technologies and sensors will allow us to gather real-time data on all sorts of things, so we can see how the city is functioning, and respond appropriately.

Being a “smart city” will also bring many other benefits for Christchurch, such as better planning and decision-making, attracting international talent to the city, and creating new business opportunities.

The Smart Cities Christchurch programme is a Christchurch City Council initiative. Our projects are designed to create a better Christchurch for everyone.
