LINZ clears and manages Crown-owned properties in the residential red zone areas in greater Christchurch.
Information on this page may be affected by COVID-19 restrictions
Our specific responsibilities are:
- leading the handover of Crown-owned residential red zone land so it progressively becomes owned and managed by Christchurch City Council
- 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.
