You may have noticed the road works around our Queenstown office and library located on Gorge Road. Don’t worry, both are still open so pop in and see our friendly team! For information on the road works underway, please visit our Major Projects page.

The Frankton and Wānaka Transfer Station facilities will close every Sunday, starting 27 November until 8 January 2023, due to staff shortages. Both facilities will be open 8.00am-5.00pm Monday to Saturday. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

On-site Wastewater Disposal

Property owners wanting to build in  areas without a council reticulated wastewater network need to consider their options carefully. 

In most cases a domestic Onsite Wastewater Disposal system will need to be designed and installed for the property to allow discharge to land.

If improperly designed or installed these systems have the potential to contaminate waterways and areas outside the property.

To install an onsite system a QLDC Building Consent will be required. In certain cases a QLDC or Otago Regional Council Resource Consent may also be required.

For information guidance and application forms for Onsite Wastewater System Building Consents, please head to:
