About 700 homes in Christchurch are without a basic telephone service because of faults caused by flooding and network owner Chorus cannot say when they will be fixed.

A spokeswoman for Chorus said it had had about 550 fault notifications from telephone retailers like Telecom and Vodafone.

But there would probably be a couple of hundred more because some people did not log faults.

The faults are in Central Christchurch, New Brighton, Papanui and St Albans. Chorus staff would work over the weekend to try and get the faults fixed.

Is the mayor correct to put libraries, pools and community facilities ahead of the Town Hall?

Absolutely, they're far more important

I think funds should be split between those facilities and the town hall

No, the Town Hall should be rebuilt first

Just demolish the Town Hall completely instead of rebuilding
