COVID-19 Council Services and Community Updates

Unite logo english

With recent developments, now more than ever, we are asking you to be kind, to look after each other and to stay at home. We have moved into National Alert Level 4 and a National State of Emergency has been declared. While the Kaikōura District Council offices are closed the Council is still working in full support of the Christchurch District Health Board and Kaikōura Healthcare.

We will keep you updated with recent changes to Council Services and Community Updates.

Council can be contacted by email at admin@kaikō  or via phone on 03 319 5026.
