The 600-home subdivision at Riccarton Racecourse has moved a step closer.
February was a busy month for house sales in Canterbury and Westland.
Riccarton housing development must price at least one-third of its homes below $450,000.
Design faults and poor-quality materials meant a house had been rotting from the inside for 10 years.
A new subdivision overlooking Lyttelton harbour is aimed at buyers wanting smaller sites.
