Shaping Our Future
We provide a recognised process to analyse big issues & create community action
In May 2015 over 100 Queenstown Lakes District residents attended the Shaping our Future Transport Forum in Queenstown and Wanaka. Forum attendees were vocal and united in identifying the key priorities for the industry - Strategic Planning, Public Transport, Community Culture, Funding and the Environment. The Queenstown taskforce presented the report back to the public in November 2016.
We have incorporated the feedback received from other 300 people and prepared the final Queenstown Transport Report. Shaping our Future are now meeting with stakeholders to carry out the recommendations.
The Queenstown Transport Report is now finalised. Over the coming weeks we will be meeting with the key stakeholders to present and start actioning the recommendations.
The Queenstown Transport Draft Report will be presented at community forum, we invite all members of our community to attend:
Date: Monday 7th November at 5.30pm
Venue: Queenstown Memorial Hall
RSVP: Email Anita or phone 021 222 1231.
This is your opportunity to have your say in the future of Lakes District. The taskforce were guided by the information you supplied at our original forum.
At the centre of the key recommendations in the report is the establishment a new cross agency Transport governance group that will be tasked with putting robust district wide, long term planning and funding solutions in place.
Pedestrianisation of CBD’s, a focus on affordable and accessible public transport, commuter cycling and walking trails all feature.
Protecting and developing key transport corridors and a focus on ‘multi-modal’ transport solutions are proposed to ensure our community stays a desirable place to live, work and visit in the future.
Adopting creative transport solutions – (monorail anyone?), embracing new technology and addressing residents desire to live and work within their community are included - all funded by visitor levies, congestion charging, central government, anyone but our little ratepayer base.
