The Queenstown Lakes District Council draft Ten Year Plan 2018-28 affects every single person in our district. It outlines a work plan for the next ten years and how that work will be funded.
QLDC aims to produce a plan that addresses the challenges of significant resident and visitor growth but at the same time delivers a plan the community can afford.
Your views on this draft plan are important. The best way to make a submission is by using the online form. Submissions close at 5pm on Friday 13 April 2018.
QLDC has prepared a consultation document that highlights the big issues and summarises many of the other projects proposed within the plan. If you’d like to get into more detail you can also read the supporting documents. Check out www.qldc.govt.nz/ten-year-plan or visit your closest Council office or library.
Council will be holding a range of community drop-in sessions during the month-long consultation period:
- Queenstown Primary School Fair, Sunday 18 March, 10am-2pm at the primary school field
- Informal drop-in session, 20 March 2018, Queenstown Council Chambers, 11am-1pm
- Arrowtown Farmers Market, Sunday 25 March, 10am-2pm at Library Green
- Informal drop-in session at Frankton Pop-up Library, Friday 6 April, 3pm-5pm
- Kingston Library Community Stand, Saturday 7 April, 11am-1pm
- Informal drop-in session at Glenorchy Lodge, Monday 9 April, 6pm-8pm
These are not intended as formal community meetings but an opportunity to come along and get your questions answered by QLDC staff or elected members. If they can’t answer your question at the time, they will make sure to get an answer to you as soon as possible so you can make an informed submission.
If you have a question but can’t make it to a session, head to www.qldc.govt.nz/ten-year-plan and click on ‘Ask a Question’. QLDC will get an answer back to you as soon as possible.
