  • If you feel like emailing, tweeting or sharing on Facebook, here’s something you can use:

Take action now to stop expansion of Queenstown Airport’s noise boundary! Don’t let a small group of Auckland-based directors decide the future of our Wakatipu community without your input.

Council’s executive team has told Councillors that the 92.5% of more than 1500 submissions opposed to QAC’s air noise boundary expansion plans only equates to 3% of the population. Perhaps this is the reason they are ignoring us? Despite all our community associations, Chamber of Commerce, Destination Queenstown and Downtown Queenstown also being in unanimous opposition. We are more than 3%…

There are many other things you can do to help ensure that you are involved in shaping the best possible future for Queenstown and the Wakatipu.

  • Connect, share and comment on social media.  Please follow us on Facebook, as will post relevant material and events. Our link is at the bottom of this page.
  • If you see us post something that you feel strongly about, please comment or share – or both! Your friends will see this too, and hopefully this will lead to more signups and a better-informed community.
  • Keep informed – we have a lot of background info on our website and update our Facebook page with relevant media and events.
  • If you think you can help the campaign in some practical way, or you just want to offer your support to do something when we need help, please let us know via the contact us page.
  • Please keep talking about the issue with as many people as you can. Many people think that QAC abandoned its expansion plans after 2018’s vociferous community opposition. It hasn’t. And council has not stopped them. QAC could well submit a district plan variation to expand the air noise boundary before this winter. 

Our best way to stop this happening is to keep an eye on council and QAC moves, and to actively input to their planning process. We will do our best to keep you informed on opportunities to do so.
