Nelson Council completes buy out of some red stickered homes

From Morning Report, 6:47 am on 5 April 2024

Nelson Council has completed buyouts worth $6 million for ten properties at risk of landslides from public land.

The properties in the suburb, The Brook, were at risk following the severe rainfall in the city in August 2022.

The council is now consulting on what will happen to the next collection of red-stickered houses - at risk of landslides from private land.

Nelson Mayor Nick Smith spoke to Corin Dann.
