Invitation to attend drop-in session for Residential Red Zone homeowners and tenants
I am writing to invite you to visit a drop-in session the Waimakariri District Council and the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (CERA) are holding on Wednesday 5 June between 2.30pm and 7pm at the Kaiapoi Service Centre, 24 Sewell Street.
This drop-in session is to assist Kaiapoi, Pines Beach and Kairaki Residential Red Zone homeowners and tenants. If you are a property owner who has either accepted or declined a purchase offer from the Crown, or you are a tenant living in the Residential Red Zone, you are welcome to attend.
You will have the opportunity to speak with representatives from Council, CERA, Work and Income, Housing New Zealand, the Waimakariri Earthquake Support Service (WESS), the Canterbury Earthquake Temporary Accommodation Service (CETAS), the Residential Advisory Service (RAS) and local police.
The session is to ensure you have all available current information about safety and security in the Residential Red Zone, Council’s position on continuing infrastructural services, the Crown offer settlement process and options for temporary accommodation.
Staff from the Council’s Building Unit will answer your questions about building consenting processes. Representatives from CERA will be available to discuss the process for requesting an extension to the Residential Red Zone settlement date.
If you are not able to attend this session, but would like some support in requesting an extension or need information about the process, please contact your support co-ordinator. If you do not have a support co-ordinator and would like to talk to or register with the support service, please phone 03 327 5621, or visit the Kaiapoi Earthquake Hub at 11 Cass Street.
