Holiday home and AirBnb owners in Christchurch say moves by the Council to regulate their sector are anti-tourism and unfair. Christchurch City Council is moving forward with plans requiring short-term rental accommodation providers to apply for a one-off consent at a cost of at least $1000. The proposed changes to the District Plan have come about after pressure from the motel and hotel sector, concerns over the impact of short-term rentals on the housing supply and the changes to neighborhoods from the turnover of temporary visitors. Kathryn speaks with Sue Harrison, director of Christchurch Holiday Homes who manages 50 homes in the city and Akaroa. Also Christchurch City Councillor Sara Templeton,  Chair of the Council's Sustainability and Resilience Committee and member of the Urban Development and Transport Committee.

China is continuing to make significant strides in creating the world's first digital currency controlled by a central bank. Trials of a digital yuan are now underway in four Chinese cities, with a design expected to be finalized by the end of 2020. Unlike paper cash, a digital currency would allow the People's Bank of China to see how money is being used in real time. So could this spell the end of physical cash and what would it mean if China had unprecedented granular access to the lives of its 1.3 billion people 's spending habits? Tax and cryptocurrency lawyer Campbell Pentney from Bell Gully talks to Kathryn Ryan.
