Christchurch residential red zone

LINZ clears and manages Crown-owned properties in the residential red zone areas in greater Christchurch.

Our specific responsibilities are: 

  • clearing Crown-owned buildings and land, mainly in the Port Hills residential red zone;
  • day-to-day maintenance of the land; 
  • assessing requests to access and to use the land temporarily. 

Currently we do not make offers to buy properties from red zone residents.
