COVID-19: information about LINZ services

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.
