The rural land in Cranford St that is being eyed for housing.
Some rural land in Cranford St is being considered for re-zoning.
Christchurch City Council is seeking public comments on its draft Cranford Regeneration Plan, which focuses on the regeneration of about 125 hectares of land on the western side of the upper end of Cranford St.
A large part of that area is made up of the Cranford Basin – a major natural ponding and stormwater management area that is critical to reducing the flood risk.
Over the next decade there are plans to transform Cranford Basin into a multi-purpose forested wetland with walking and cycle paths.
