With Wakatipu High School relocating to Frankton and future
population growth projected to centre around the suburb, the
Queenstown Lakes District Council has decided to discuss the
idea of a shared library with the school.
Queenstown and Wanaka's month-long Summerdaze festival is no
more. Last week, the Queenstown Lakes District Council
decided to approve the recommendation by its events office to
cancel the festival, which had been ''supported by [the]
council for 10 years''.
A proposal by the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) to
reduce monetary support for Queenstown Lakes District
transport projects and programmes could mean a cut of between
$204,000 and $1.4 million for the district.
Queenstown's reputation as a destination for cyclists who
will fly into the resort, ride for five days, then fly out
continues to grow, an organiser of the upcoming 10-day
Queenstown Bike Festival says.
