Christchurch City Council Archives re-opening

The Christchurch City Council archives have been closed since the September earthquake in the Canterbury region but will be re-opening on Tuesday 15 February 2011. 

The Christchurch City Council Archives are housed at Recall, 12 Braeburn Drive, Hornby. This is a temporary location whilst Recall build a new facility which will be completed at the end of 2011 and includes a specifically built archival vault.  Access to the archives is by appointment only on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, 9.30am-1pm.  Please send any requests for information or queries to or contact direct by calling (03) 941 8614.

There was no damage to the archives at all as the result of the earthquakes and aftershocks. I am looking forward to seeing our regular customers again, and once again getting familiar with the collection.
