Proposal for rezoning 112 Waimairi Road, Ilam

The site at 112 Waimairi Road, currently zoned ‘Residential Suburban Density Transition Zone’, is proposed for rezoning to ‘Specific Purpose (Tertiary Education) Zone’

The rezoning allows for additional activities such as education, research, or related activities. This could include
student accommodation, car parking, or more public access, which would allow more flexibility and certainty for the University of Canterbury.
