It appears Christchurch are going trial a 25 by 25 meter area for prostitutes to solicit for business. Joelle Dally has more:
Christchurch city councillors Ali Jones and Pauline Cotter are spearheading the creation of a temporary site for street-based sex workers between Bealey Ave and Kilmore St.
Jones said the aim was to solve post-quake tensions between prostitutes and Manchester St residents north of Bealey Ave, and to make it safer for workers and their clients.
A preferred site had been identified out of five considered along that stretch of the street, she said.
Jones would not reveal the exact location as it was not yet confirmed, and consultation with the landowner, residents and businesses was still under way.
The temporary site would have facilities including toilets, lighting, security cameras and needle receptacles.
