May, 2020Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC) has issued a Request for
Proposals (RFP) to complete a Masterplan and related Approvals for the
Ladies Mile (Te Putahi) area in Queenstown.
The RFP follows on from a series of council decisions considering the
future of Ladies Mile in recent years culminating in the Ladies Mile
Establishment report that was adopted at a council meeting in March.
The report recommended undertaking a council-led Masterplan and plan
variation as a way of creating a holistic approach to planning for this
growing area of the Wakatipu Basin.
QLDC General Manager Planning and Development Tony Avery said the
council was looking at taking a methodical and integrated approach in
developing a master plan for Ladies Mile.
The Masterplan will need to consider the various land use demands as
well as transport, housing, and social infrastructure needs. This will
promote community outcomes and offer a well thought out ability to
create a compelling place to live, work and play, Mr Avery said.
Whilst we expect that construction and development will slow down in
the current COVID-19 context, we know that growth will return as
Queenstown Lakes continues to be a desirable place to live so
continuing with the Masterplan work is important for the future, he
The deadline for proposals is 1.00pm, June 16. The contract will
commence on July 10 and run for nine months.
The Masterplan would then need to be considered by the council before
any decisions are made on the future of Ladies Mile.
The RFP was released on Tuesday and is available to view on the GETS
The council acquired a strategic Ladies Mile property last year and the
deal was brokered by New Zealand Sothebys International Realty
Queenstown real estate agent Dave Fea.
