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.

Watch Council Meetings

We livestream all Full Council meetings on our Facebook page. These are then saved as a video file on Facebook for those who would like to view the meeting once it has finished. You can view our video section on Facebook to see these recordings.

Direct links to the recordings of meetings are also added to the agenda section of that meeting soon after the meeting has taken place. 

Speaking During Meetings

The public is welcome to attend all publicly-notified QLDC Council, Community Board, and Committee meetings. All Council meetings follow rules known as Standing Orders which allow for you to speak during a section of the meeting called public forum. Public forum happens at the start of every meeting and is part of the formal agenda.

Anyone who wishes to speak in the public forum is required to register with the governance team at least three hours before the meeting starts. You can do this either by telephoning 03 441 0499 (Queenstown); 03 443 0024 (Wānaka) or by filling out a registration form. You will be asked to provide your full name and the subject of your presentation.

Once the public forum has commenced, the Chair will invite individual speakers to the table and you will be asked to sit where you can easily speak into the microphone. Please note that under the Standing Orders, the Chair has the discretion to decline to hear any speaker, whether they have registered to speak or not.

For further information on public forum, please refer to section 14 of the Queenstown Lakes District Council Standing Orders.
