Meet Your Street

Current location in the site

The Selwyn district is one of the fastest growing in New Zealand and we want all residents to feel part of their community so they can make themselves at home. A supportive community helps migrants and newcomers to feel welcome.

Getting to know the people who live nearby helps create a sense of belonging in your local area. Strengthening connections and trust in our communities contributes to a happier and safer neighbourhood for everyone.

Here in Selwyn we encourage all residents to get to know their neighbours!

Organise your own local street gathering - funds available!

Here in Selwyn we also encourage neighbourhoods to organise their own local street gathering.
