QAC’s 2020-22 statement of intent – agreed by Council 23 April, 2020

From Queenstown Airport Corporation website, May 2020

If you want to check out the statement of intent agreed to by Queenstown Lakes District councillors three months ahead of schedule, despite being acknowledged as containing redundant and irrelevant pre-Covid 19 forecasts and there being no legal requirement to do so, here’s the link.

You will note that despite an amendment to the statement of expectations from councillors that stated QAC must operate within its air noise boundaries, this SOI quite specifically includes planning that could include expansion. The only commitment (page 10) is to not seek ANB expansion at Queenstown or development of Wanaka Airport “at this time”.

Councillors expect a revised statement of intent back from QAC in time for the October 27 meeting.
