Details of today's White Zone announcement are on the CERA site here. Residents will need to wait until 4.00pm tomorrow before the landcheck website here will show which properties have been reclassified as Green.
Confirmation has been received that Orange Zone properties will not be re-zoned this year, but remain a top priority. The reason for this is that the remaining Orange zones are the most complex areas to re-zone, and each faces unique geotechnical issues and potential solutions.
As well as identifying and investigating possible land remediation solutions, the Department of Building and Housing is undertaking research on design solutions for house foundations. The findings may or may not provide further options for rebuilding in these areas. The work of the DBH is not expected to be completed until February.
