Shotover plans ban on visitors

Queenstown developer Shotover Country Ltd plans to ban visitor accommodation at its proposed special housing area, near the Shotover River.

It has volunteered to bring in the ban, noted on consent notices, over all 101 titles.

Council documents show residential units in the speeded up development are ''not to be used for visitor accommodation'', meaning owners cannot rent out land or buildings for less than three months.

Shotover Country development boss Kristan Stalker says other parts of the subdivision have a similar ban.

He added: ''The primary purpose of Shotover Country is to create homes for families.''
