From Monday 18 September there will be no parking available directly outside the Gorge Road Council office due to construction activity associated with the Town Centre Arterial Road. Our Gorge Road Council office will be open as usual. But if you’d prefer, you can make use of our online services via our website or give us a call on 03 441 0499.

Strong winds and heavy rain have affected many roads and some properties across the district. Queenstown emergency services and QLDC are currently dealing with a number of properties impacted by the weather. Some residents have self-evacuated and those requiring shelter are being supported at Queenstown Memorial Hall. Further information here.

Wānaka Town Centre Masterplan

About the project

The Wānaka Town Centre Masterplan   focuses on how the town centre functions in the future.  This includes a preferred programme of transport improvements to ensure good access to and around the   town centre and wider urban area of Wānaka.  

Progress and next steps

Following strong feedback from the community back in August 2019, the  Wānaka Community Board agreed that more detailed investigation was required before the Wānaka Town Centre Masterplan could be endorsed.   

Under the Way to Go Umbrella, we will now progress a Network Optimisation Single Stage Business case which will focus on improvements to get the most of out of the existing transport network, including more opportunities for active travel, intersection upgrades and an integrated parking strategy.   

You'll start to hear more about these projects in the coming months.
