Christchurch Council considering purchasing Akaroa 'Red House'

From Morning Report, 8:53 am on 8 December 2020

A piece of land once a part of a major Ngāi Tahu flax trading village and where a massacre of the iwi happened has gone on the market.

A privately owned property in Akaroa known as The Red House is surrounded by council-owned historic reserves collectively known as Takapūneke Reserve.

The Christchurch City Council is considering purchasing the house before it goes to auction next week.
