Discussing reserve use by jet-boat company

Whether Go Jets Wanaka can use a reserve by the Clutha River for passenger boarding will be considered tomorrow.

At its meeting tomorrow in Wanaka, the Queenstown Lakes District Council will consider granting Go Jets Wanaka a licence to use the reserve below the Albert Town bridge.

A report by council property adviser Dan Cruickshank recommends the licence be approved for five years from October 1, at an annual rental of $500.

The report contains conditions, and notes Go Jets has resource consents for eight return trips per day and 100 trips a year.

Use of the reserve was the subject of a public hearing where Albert Town residents objected to the noise and danger.
