Two Rangiora buildings deemed to be earthquake-prone will be demolished.

The Waimakariri District Council said yesterday that the Lambert and Rangiora Digital Print buildings in High St would be pulled down this month.

Both closed in February after being assessed as dangerous.

Council environmental services general inspector Greig Wilson said it was likely that salvageable items would be removed by contractors before the demolition to ensure material was reused instead of dumped.

The six containers placed outside the Lambert building after its closure, which enabled High St to be reopened to vehicles between Percival and Victoria streets, would remain in place until the footpath was safe for public use.

The Kaiapoi Gray Raven Scout Group building in Davie St was closed after a council inspection found its structural integrity had been affected by quake damage.
