July, 2021Queenstown Lakes District Council elected members will be asked to
consider whether to continue with a council-led approach to planning
for the future of Te Pktahi Ladies Mile, near Queenstown, at its full
meeting on Thursday.
The councils General Manager Planning and Development Tony Avery
said the project team had carefully analysed the community feedback
and proposed options regarding next steps for councillors to consider.
Weve considered the feedback from the community, directly affected
landowners and other stakeholders which has clearly shown there are a
number of matters of concern that require consideration by Council,
Mr Avery said.
Transport remains a key constraint to potential development in this
area and theres a lot of work still to be done to confirm what needs to
happen, when and how it will be funded. There are other matters
requiring further work including the height, density and numbers of
residential units allowed for, management of stormwater, location of
the proposed high school, the nature and extent of community facilities
and commercial centre, and the final form of the planning provisions
that would ensure the delivery of the vision behind the Masterplan, Mr
The councillors have been asked to note the matters requiring further
attention and consider whether the project team:
" continues to work on a council-led approach to develop a
Masterplan to resolve the outstanding matters identified in the report
but at a lower density of development than consulted on; or
" halts any work on a council-led Masterplan, continues to work with
Waka Kotahi and the Otago Regional Council on the proposed transport
interventions, the timing of these interventions and how they would be
funded, and manage any future development proposals through the
District Plan and Resource Management Act 1991 processes.
The council will communicate the outcome of the meeting following the
decision on Thursday.
