Housing in Kaikōura

This page contains information about the housing shortage in Kaikōura, work underway and the related support and information services.

Kaikōura has never had a large amount of spare houses and has a history of slow population growth. So this kind of housing shortage is a relatively new problem for our district. Although there’s no easy solution, we’re doing what we can to help and make sure we have all the information we need to make the best decisions we can.
