After an hour of discussion around the table in Queenstown
yesterday, a raft of parking changes in the resort's CBD was
passed by the Queenstown Lakes District Council, despite
vehement opposition from the public.
Up to 646 units or residential apartments and a 100-bed aged
care facility have been agreed to or approved in principle by
the Queenstown Lakes District Council under the Housing
Accords and Special Housing Areas Act to date.
Banning camper vans from Queenstown's CBD and freeing up 60
parking spaces in the Church St car park for public use are
among the "bold moves'' being recommended to the Queenstown
Lakes District Council.
