Paparua County Council (1911-1989)



  • Existence: 1911 - 1989


The Paparua County Council was formed from the amalgamation of the Lincoln and Templeton Road Boards in 1911, via the Selwyn County Subdivision Act 1910. The Paparua County Council in turn amalgamated with Christchurch City Council in 1989.

With new legislation in 1968 the Paparua County Council areas of Sockburn and Hornby, were elevated to County Boroughs that sat within Paparua County Council and then went on to become District Community Councils in 1974, along with Halswell. They formed the Riccarton/Wigram Community Board that was established upon the 1989 amalgamation. See also Halswell Domain Board, Prebbleton Domain Board.
