Community pushing back against Queenstown development

From Morning Report, 8:44 am on 29 July 2021

A 2000 home development proposed for a picturesque part of Queenstown is upsetting locals who want it moved elsewhere.

They're not so much worried about a blot on the landscape as the commute to work.

The Ladies Mile development proposes to add high density houses to the city's eastern entrance - near Lake Hayes.

The community is pushing back, with some fearing it'll worsen heaving traffic jams.
