The Christchurch City Council will hold a closed-door meeting today, to discuss the financial implications of the Port Hills zoning decisions.
CERA is expected to announce on Friday the fate of the remaining 160 odd white-zoned homes on the hills around the city.
Residents will find out whether they go red or green, some have already pleaded with the council to let them stay despite the risk of further rock falls.
This afternoon's meeting with the public excluded, will discuss the extent of the financial fallout of the decision for the council.
It's understood the council won't release any decisions made today - until CERA announces the zoning decisions in two days.
Meanwhile land reports will begin to be released in Canterbury this week, and those in the hardest hit areas getting the information first.
EQC's data packs have been wanted by those in TC3 in particular, as a number of them have had delays in insurance claims because of the land damage.
EQC spokesman Iain Butler says they have a targeted approach for the release of the reports.
"The packs will be distributed in Kaiapoi to begin with starting with TC3 properties, then we'll move progressively through the eastern suburbs, western suburbs, the Port Hills and Lyttelton area."
Iain Butler says all packs will be out by the end of November.
