Shaping Our Future
We provide a recognised process to analyse big issues & create community action
The “Wakatipu Way to Go” group and Shaping our Future will be co-hosting an event on Monday 1 April from 6pm-7.30pm at Queenstown Event Centre to talk about future transport solutions for Wakatipu residents and visitors.
The Wakatipu Way to Go group is a formal collaborative partnership of Queenstown Lakes District Council, the New Zealand Transport Agency and Otago Regional Council. It recognises that all three agencies have an important role in driving change and that by working together and integrating projects the best possible outcomes can be reached. Representatives from the Wakatipu Way to Go Group will be presenting or available for Q&A during the event. We will also have an opportunity for you to share your priorities and discuss the different projects.
We’d encourage you to come along to hear about the major projects that the Wakatipu Way to Go group are driving and the progress so far.
Shaping our Future has completed a number of community and industry forums that raise transport infrastructure as a key priority for the area. Our board members have participated in a number of workshops representing your views. In 2017 SoF completed the Queenstown Transport Report based on the views of over 300 of our districts residents.

2. The transport entity to be responsible for -
