As the Queenstown Lakes District Council voted unanimously
yesterday to keep the dream of a convention centre for the
CBD alive, a private developer vowed to lodge consent for a
competing centre in Frankton by year's end.
A campaign has been launched in Wanaka urging voters in this
year's local body elections to register their discontent with
the two Queenstown Lakes mayoral candidates and instead vote
for Wanaka's voice to be better heard in the district.
