A meeting between Housing Minister Nick Smith and Queenstown
Lakes Mayor Vanessa van Uden on Friday to discuss a proposed
housing accord for the resort was another positive step - but

VBore Queenstown's $200,000 Corporate Jet Services terminal
was even officially opened by Clutha-Southland MP and deputy
prime minister Bill English last night, a larger, more
permanent structure was already being discussed.
The Wakatipu business community had every reason to smile
over the weekend as school holidays and the long weekend,
combined with the Arrowtown Autumn Festival and the inaugural
Queenstown Blues and Roots Festival, brought visitors to the
resort in droves.
