Land rezoned in the Greater Christchurch area during the last 18 months will provide sections for more than 20,000 households in coming years.

Indications from developers are that there will be up to 6600 greenfield sections released on the market during the next two years, about 3170 of which will be in Christchurch City. The majority of these will be in the south west and Belfast areas, the two areas identified in the Greater Christchurch Urban Development Strategy(external link) as best able to accommodate future urban growth and development.

For more information on the process refer to Making land available for housing.
