The Avon River can carry around 30% of Christchurch’s Storm water discharge and many parts of Bexley are threatened by the combination of high tides and flooding.

Housing in Bexley is a mix of styles mainly from the early 1960s onward. Recent developments around wetland areas have seen large growth in new medium sized bungalow style houses since the late 1990s. And most usable property will be built on by late 2007.
