Council to put right 12 Sandilands properties

Media Release 17 November 2005 1 page

Chch City Council to put right 12 private properties at Sandilands

Christchurch City Council will put right a dozen Sandilands properties that have been shown to be contaminated. The work should be done by early in the New Year.

Today the Council considered a staff report on the matter, which says the Ministry for the Environment has agreed to fund $212,500 of the expected total remediation cost of $806,000. The Council will pay the remaining balance of $593,500 to proceed with remediation work on the properties.

People living on the affected properties have been notified of the decision.

The dozen properties are among 93 on the former Sandilands landfill site that were originally tested for soil contaminants. Of those, the 12 properties were recommended for treatment to deal with contamination. Tests carried out on the remaining 81 properties found they did not exceed the accepted Ministry for the Environment guidelines for contaminated land.

Sandilands covers 12.5ha that was once a Council landfill. It was covered and developed for housing just after the World War Two.
