There are "substantial issues'' within the Queenstown Lakes
District Council's building control department and the Crown
entity responsible for building control authority
accreditation has "significant concerns''.
Parking at Queenstown Airport and the airport's ongoing
battle to acquire an area of land known as "Lot 6'' were two
issues raised by the public during an information session
about evening flights last night.
The Queenstown Lakes District Council says it is moving
"swiftly" to fix 10 deficiencies identified by International
Accreditation New Zealand during its latest audit of how the
council fulfils its building consent functions.
