1107 PROPERTIES GET THE GREEN ZONED GREEN LIGHT IN CHRISTCHURCH
In one in ten thousand, people with chins news: It was all go in Christchurch.
TV3 news reported: “Three-quarters of Port Hills properties in limbo since the quake have been zoned green this afternoon. Earthquake Minister Gerry Brownlee announced the zoning decisions for the last remaining white zone area in Christchurch today.
For 1107 property owners it was good news – with their houses declared safe and the owners able to begin talks with CERA and insurance companies about repairs. Of the remaining properties, two-hundred-and-eighty-five will go red and 166 needed further assessment.
“The type of damage that has occurred in the Port Hills is in no way similar to the damage that has occurred on the flat lands,” says Mr Brownlee.“So these decisions have been pretty difficult.”–More at the sound of hammers.
