Red zone land returns to local ownership

Ownership of Christchurch’s former residential red zone areas has officially begun transferring from central Government to Christchurch City Council.

Within the last few weeks the Crown agency, Land Information New Zealand (LINZ), has transferred the regeneration areas in Brooklands and most of Southshore and South New Brighton to the Council. The Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor land will be transferred in tranches over the coming years as LINZ reconfigures more than 5000 land titles.

The balance of Southshore and South New Brighton red zone land will be transferred in the coming months, and the Port Hills red zone land in May 2021.

Ockham Residential launch their 14th Auckland apartment project

Auckland housing entrepreneurs Ockham Residential have launched their fourteenth apartment development, Aroha, and are planning another development with even more KiwiBuild options.

Ockham Residential launched the Aroha apartment development in Avondale via livestream on Wednesday, the fourteeenth since being founded in 2009 by entrepreneurs Mark Todd and Benjamin Preston.

The Aroha development, at the intersection of Great North Road and Ash Street, is their third with Marutūāhu Iwi, a Hauraki Collective of tribes.

The Auckland company plans 47 KiwiBuild apartments in the 117-apartment Aroha complex and another 85 Kiwibuilds in a future development and fourth venture with Marutūāhu in central Auckland in February.

Hundreds of new homes planned for Queenstown

More than 1000 “affordable” homes are being planned for Queenstown, despite the tourist town being one of the hardest hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Coneburn Special Housing Area, which will accommodate about 600 new homes, received resource consent on Monday.

In August, neighbouring Henley Downs Farms Ltd applied to the Queenstown Lakes District Council to create 272 new residential lots, while Hanley’s Farm applied for 145.

The growing subdivisions all sit within the Jacks Point Zone, south of Queenstown and bordering Lake Wakatipu.
