It’s time to have your say in Wanaka’s future
A small group of executives in Auckland and Queenstown are making decisions about your children’s future.
QAC has announced plans for significant development at Wanaka Airport, and they are now moving fast.
What is happening?
The Upper Clutha community is not being consulted on the significant development of a ‘jet capable’ Wanaka Airport. An airport proposed to run scheduled jet services that under the current proposed plan, by 2035 we could expect up to 2.8 million passenger movements annually at Wanaka Airport.

What will this mean for us?
The scale of development will have a massive and far reaching impact on Wanaka’s infrastructure and its desirability both as a place to live and a destination to visit. More information here.
Our community and infrastructure are under pressure now and the environment is clearly suffering from the adverse effects of recent rapid and unchecked growth. […] Recent announcements re the development of the Wanaka Airport are likely to have a significant impact on the quality of both the community space we live in and the environment.Michael Ross, Chairperson, Wanaka Stakeholders Group
