The Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (Cera) has announced a new review process for insured residential property owners who want to query their current land zoning.
Cera Minister Gerry Brownlee said this morning that a new process is to be introduced.
"Flat land property owners wishing to query their zoning have until June 30 to making an application for review," Brownlee said.
A similar review structure will be implemented for Port Hills residents following their zoning process, which is due for completion by the end of June.
Over the past year 550 people have contacted Cera to request a review of their zone status.
Zoning of flat land in greater Christchurch began in June last year and was completed last month.
Over that period 7253 properties were zoned red as unsuitable for residential occupation due to significant earthquake damage.
A further 180,000 properties were zoned green as suitable for residential occupation, subject to conditions.
Many residents in the green zone want to be zoned red but 80 red zoned property owners are seeking re-designation to green.
The advisory group is assessing if zoning changes are appropriate, and if the original zoning is inconsistent with the Cabinet classifications as well as checking for boundary anomalies.
The deadline for the advisory group to complete the review and report back to applicants is July 30.
