The land is principally zoned as a Residential New Neighbourhood in the new District Plan for Christchurch. The Yaldhurst Road frontage is all Commercial Core under the new District Plan.

The New Neighbourhood zone offers the opportunity to plan and develop a mixed density and mixed use residential neighbourhood in an integrated and comprehensive way, allowing a flexible response to the treatment of the urban/rural interface.

There are significant employment centres and other community facilities in general proximity to this zone, including those at Hornby, Sockburn, Canterbury University and Christchurch International Airport. This area offers the opportunity for a mixed density residential neighbourhood, capable of supporting some retail and community facilities within the zone, with easy access to public transport.
