WSG welcomes QLDC decision to not appeal High Court ruling [12/05/21]
This afternoon, QLDC announced that it will not appeal the High Court decision about Wānaka Airport, which is welcome news. Our reaction is below:
The following is a brief statement from WSG chair, Michael Ross:
We welcome this announcement this afternoon from QLDC. From the outset, we have advocated that the priority is supporting and enabling existing aviation businesses at Wānaka Airport, and it’s good to hear that QLDC will now focus on that, and continuing to support the recently reintroduced turbo-prop service between Wānaka and Christchurch, which we also support.
We, and no doubt the rest of the community, look forward to lawful consultation about any potential plans to develop Wānaka Airport further.
