How Landowners are affected
If you own land in the central city, there are various ways you may be affected by the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan. One key thing to establish is whether your land is designated as a site for an anchor project.
If your land is not designated
If your land is not designated you can choose what you do with your land. Your land may have been rezoned, and that may impact on how you can rebuild.
Zone changes mean that new development and uses will have to comply with the new provisions in the District Plan. People with land zoned Central City Business will be able to undertake the same sorts of activities as previously but you may find that there are some different development standards around those activities.
Land zoned Central City Mixed Use will have some restrictions on office size and retail development to encourage such activities into the Core or impose location controls on large format retail. (The Core encompasses an area from Tuam Street in the south, to Manchester Street in the east, Kilmore Street in the north and Montreal Street in the west.)
In either zone, residential development is encouraged.
If your land is designated
If you are in an area that has been designated as a site for one of the anchor projects, your land is subject to restrictions on use and may be acquired, the land acquisition page has more details on the process.
