Early insights on the Blue-Green Network Plan closed on Sunday 15 October.

Our Blue-Green Network Plan is made up of all the parks, open spaces, trails, streets and waterways in the Queenstown Lakes District which deliver a variety of educational, recreational, ecological, cultural, landscape and health benefits.

With limited space available in our developable areas and limited opportunities to connect to our surrounding landscapes, it’s important we plan for the future needs of our growing community and protect and enhance our Blue-Green Network throughout the district.

By mapping what we currently have and working with communities to understand what additional spaces and connections are needed and should be protected, we can ensure neighbourhoods in the district are well-designed and provide for your everyday needs now, and in the future. The Plan will also help to prioritise investment on parks, open spaces, and social infrastructure for all ages and abilities as and when opportunities and funding becomes available in the future.

The Blue-Green Network Plan delivers on the Queenstown Lakes Spatial Plan 2021 priority to develop open space network plans for each community, and aligns with its outcome for well-designed neighbourhoods that provide for everyday needs.

For more information on the Blue-Green Network Plan, how it works and what it's designed to achieve, check out the Blue-Green Network Plan Information Pack.

What's next?

Once we've finished identifying gaps in our open space network, we'll be undertaking community engagement throughout the district in November 2023 to share the draft Blue-Green Network Plan and to get your feedback too!

We'll share more updates on these sessions soon.
