August, 2018Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC) is putting the call out for
private investors interested in a potential partnership to deliver parking
solutions for the Queenstown Town Centre.
Proposed parking solutions are included in the Queenstown Town Centre
Masterplan which formed an integral part of the infrastructure
development programme in the recently adopted QLDC 2018-2028 Ten
Facilities proposed within the Ten Year Plan include a new 242-space
parking building at the current Boundary Street car park at a cost of
$18.3M and a 350-space parking building on the current Ballarat Street
parking site at a cost of $25.8M. Also included is $3.9M for a parking
management system for the parking buildings.
QLDC Mayor Jim Boult said theres a lot of community support for
Council to get on with delivering on the Queenstown Town Centre
Weve taken on board a number of submissions received via the Ten
Year Plan process suggesting there may be a preference for alternative
investment models for car parking. Now that weve completed a
Detailed Business Case for the two proposed facilities wed like to
explore options for a possible private partnership. QLDC is committed to
the Ten Year Plan timeline of delivering car parking solutions within the
town centre by 2022, said Mayor Boult.
QLDC General Manager Property and Infrastructure Peter Hansby said
that, in order to gauge whether there are private sector investors who
would like to partner with the Council on this project or propose
alternative parking solutions, were releasing a Registration of Interest
(ROI) on 31 August.
Respondents will need to demonstrate how their solutions align with the
Masterplan objectives and outcomes and may include developments on
QLDC owned land or privately owned land.
Proposals will be called for through the Government Electronic Tenders
Service (GETS) site (www.gets.govt.nz) via a ROI process and will be
evaluated against the two planned QLDC car park building projects.
