A boil water is in place for businesses and properties across Queenstown following a number of confirmed local cases of illness caused by the protozoa, cryptosporidium. This affects all properties serviced by the Council’s Queenstown supply including Frankton, Quail Rise and Tucker Beach Rd, Kelvin Heights and Hanley’s Farm. Read more here.

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.

The state of local emergency in Queenstown, originally declared on Friday morning after a severe weather event, has been lifted. However, some restrictions will remain in place to protect public safety as the focus turns to recovery. Full information here.

Variation to Coneburn Industrial Zone

This proposal is a variation to Chapter 44 Coneburn Industrial Zone of the Proposed District Plan (PDP) to remove the restricted discretionary activity status for building coverage, and to amend rules regarding Custodial Units and Visitor Accommodation activities to ensure these provisions more closely align with the overall strategic intent of the PDP.

Variations are also proposed to District-Wide Chapter 25 Earthworks, 27 Subdivision, 29 Transport, 31 Signs, and 36 Noise. It is proposed to introduce specific provisions in these Chapters to identify the Coneburn Industrial Zone within their overall management framework.
