Floodplain restoration principles for the Avon Ōtākaro Red Zone. Case studies and recommendations.
Following the Canterbury earthquakes many thousands of homes were acquired by the government for demolition on the basis that the land was too badly damaged to be economically remediated for immediate residential redevelopment. A large tract of the land acquired runs eastward from the Christchurch CBD and is known as the Avon-Ōtākaro Red Zone (AORZ). Future uses of this land provide the context for this report.
