Housing in the Queenstown Lakes
We’re proposing a draft Queenstown Lakes Homes Strategy and Action Plan and changes to planning rules so that everyone has a warm secure place to call home.
Find out more on these topics below, and have your say at letstalk.qldc.govt.nz by 26 September 2021.
The housing challenge
We all choose to live and stay in the Queenstown Lakes District for many reasons. The unique environment, outdoor lifestyle, beauty and vibrancy of our places and diverse cultures make it easy to see why so many people want to make this special place their home. Unfortunately many struggle to find a suitable home.
Housing is one of the biggest challenges our community faces. The root causes of housing unaffordability in the district are complex and centre on centre on supply, choice, availability, and quality.
Housing is at the heart of creating secure, connected and caring communities, creating jobs and a diverse economy. It is also fundamental to sustainable and responsive urban planning and development.
That’s why we’re now proposing a draft Queenstown Lakes Homes Strategy and Action Plan, and inclusionary zoning options for the District Plan, both of which seek to address the housing challenge faced by our community.
Have we got it right?
Find out more information on QLDC's draft Homes Strategy and Action Plan, and our inclusionary zoning options before providing your feedback on whether you think we’re taking the right approach.
