Around the motu: Peter Newport in Queenstown

From Nine To Noon, 10:45 am on 26 April 2024

Peter highlights a proposal that would see residential developments in the Queenstown Lakes district go up as well as out - a plan that has the potential to drop rents by as much as a third.

New birthing units for Clyde and Wānaka have been delayed - again, and a new Queenstown intersection could cost as much as $250 million and take four years to build.

Peter Newport is Managing Editor,  Crux, based in Arrowtown
