Given Groynes Park is still at the early stages of Development, section prices are still extremely good value, and actually priced well below the very few sections that might come up for sale in established communities. As the subdivision matures and Groynes Park’s quality is revealed, prices will rise in future stages. At the time of writing (May 2016) Stage 1 section prices range from $210,000 to $305,000 for a 200m2 to 554m2 lot. Because of high demand, we don’t publish price lists on our website, but come in and enquire about the sort of section that best suits you and we’ll help you find the very best options.

A title is a record of land ownership. Once all the infrastructure work and survey work specific to a lot has been completed the surveyor prepares and lodges survey transactions directly to Land Information New Zealand (LINZ). If the documentation is in order LINZ issues the title.
Groynes Park has two sets of protective covenants - the‘Groynes Park Land Covenants’ and the ‘Groynes Park Building & Lot Development Covenants’. All lot owners must comply with these covenants.
For help regarding the covenants, contact the Groynes Developments Compliance Supervisor, Brent Baxter, on (03) 323 9091.
Lot owners may access their site once title is issued. Roads within a Stage become public roads owned by the Christchurch City Council once titles in that Stage are issued. Parking is to be on the streets only. No parking is permitted on the berms.
