• Christchurch heritage homestead McLean’s Mansion has been saved from the wrecking ball.

The Environment Court upheld a Heritage New Zealand decision to decline an application to demolish the mansion first made by owners, the Murray family of Christchurch, in 2013.

The court concluded the building “has very high historical and cultural heritage value that justifies protection” and that it “contributes towards Cantabrians’ sense of place and identity”.
