Christchurch streets and places

Explore the Christchurch streets map

The Christchurch streets and places resource aims to give the origins of some local street names. This information is available in searchable documents, or through the interactive Christchurch streets map.  

Researched by Christchurch City Libraries, the streets information has come from published works, manuscripts, interviews, as well as Christchurch City Council archives. 

In early 2024 an experimental collaborative pilot used Christchurch street names data to produce an interactive Christchurch streets map that can be clicked or searched to locate streets, and provide available origin information.
