Living in Selwyn
Current location in the site
Selwyn District is a great place to live, work and play. We have a fantastic quality of life, great communities and schools, thriving businesses and we’re working with our residents to plan for our futures.
The heart of any community is its people, and Selwyn District boasts a wonderful, eclectic, interesting population of around 38,000 stretching from Lake Ellesmere in the South East to Arthur’s Pass in the West. We’re the fastest growing district in New Zealand.
If you’re new to Selwyn, both Rolleston and Lincoln have Newcomers initiatives that will help you find your way round the district and welcome you into the area. Pick up a flyer Rolleston Newcomers Network or Welcome to Lincoln from the SDC offices, or any Selwyn Library/Service Centre, or download.
