Christchurch Flood Risk Zones May Be Expanded

April 2, 2014

When revised flood management maps were released in October 2012, nearly 2500 Christchurch properties were identfied as being at risk of flooding as a result of the city's earthquakes.  As such, the Christchurch City Council will be expanding the flood zone by as much as 30% throughout the city. 

In these areas, all new homes and commercial buildings will be required to have their floor levels at a height that protects them from a one-in-200-year flooding event. Read the full article to learn if your neighbourhoud could be among those affected by the rezoning.
