Civil Defence says houses evacuated in Avoca Valley Road in Christchurch's Heathcote Valley have now been given red stickers and residents will not be allowed to return.

The houses were evacuated on Sunday due to the risk of falling rocks.

A Civil Defence spokesperson says residents are being housed at the Pioneer Stadium and they will need to engage a structural engineer to review the situation.
