Protect Wanaka takes legal action against Council and QAC [Crux, 19/09/19]
In a dramatic announcement today, Protect Wanaka says it will seek a judicial review of the way that the Queenstown Lakes District Council has managed our local airports.
At the centre of the lobby group’s legal action is a claim that the QLDC has effectively handed control of the two local airports to the Queenstown Airport Corporation, in violation of the requirements of the Local Government Act.
The claim will also focus on what Protect Wanaka says is poor communication, a lack of consultation and a lack of transparency. nmv,vn
