Christchurch Schools Rebuild Programme: How we're using vacant school sites in Christchurch

Over the course of the programme, we've used vacant school sites to temporarily accommodate schools while we redevelop or replace school buildings around Christchurch.

As schools move into their new or repaired schools, land will increasingly become available. That’s why we’ve been working hard to clear land which we don’t need, and get it into disposal.

The following table shows school sites which are in use or in the disposal process. All properties in disposal go through a series of steps under the Public Works Act 1981. This means offering the property to other government agencies, previous owners or Māori (under a Treaty claim settlement) before it can be sold on the open market.
