Q: What is the current status of Tommy Taylor Courts on the corner of Brougham St and Waltham Rd? Only a couple of the units look inhabited. What is its future?

A: Twelve units at the Tommy Taylor complex are vacant as they are uninhabitable due to the earthquake damage sustained and subsequent engineering advice. The complex is significantly damaged and out of level and due to this the ability to repair is still being assessed. Current tenants, who will be moving out while their homes are being repaired in the New Year, will be transferring into the habitable units. Christchurch City Council
