Christchurch residents affected by the latest white- zone announcements are holding a support meeting today for those entangled in the "drawn out zoning process".

Earthquake Recovery Minister Gerry Brownlee announced on Friday that 285 Port Hills properties had been zoned red and 1107 zoned green, while 166 properties requiring further assessment remained white.

"There are so many questions left unanswered," a spokesperson said.

"We have all been through a lot in the last 18 months waiting on the fates of our homes."
