We're exploring new technology, innovative approaches and solutions to help make our city a smarter, safer place to live, work and play.

Christchurch City Council set up the Smart Christchurch programme in 2016 with the goal of promoting Ōtautahi-Christchurch as an open and connected city.

Being a ‘smart city’ brings many benefits, such as better planning and decision-making, attracting international talent to the city, and creating new business opportunities.

We work closely with other councils to share research and data, as well as partner companies (locally, nationally and internationally) and agencies to deliver our trials and projects.

All our projects fit in with the Council’s priorities and are designed to create a better Christchurch for everyone.

Check out some of our initiatives below.
