Tarras Airport plans put on hold

Opponents of an ambitious airport proposal for the small town of Tarras are pleased that it appears to be grounded.

The proposal, which has been pursued by Christchurch International Airport Ltd (CIAL) for several years, seems to have been shelved for the moment after a changed outlook from the Christchurch City Council.

The council’s Christchurch City Holdings Ltd (CCHL) is the majority owner in CIAL.
