About the review

Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC) has been investigating higher than usual levels of natural hazard risk in the Brewery Creek and Reavers Lane areas along Gorge Road in Queenstown. We've also been investigating options to respond to these higher levels of natural hazard risk.

We understand that this situation is of concern to people who live, work and own property in the area, and it's of concern to staff at QLDC too. We've undertaken a thorough investigation to ensure Council has a good understanding of this challenging issue, and we're committed to working through this issue with the community.

What's next?

The decision on how to proceed will be made by elected members. To help inform this decision, we would like feedback, questions and comments from the community. A consultation process is planned for November 2021, and we'll be offering a number of different ways for you to be involved. We hope to see you at one of the events.

We will provide further updates here with information about the technical assessments and coming consultation as and when it is confirmed. The timeline below provides information on where we are at in this natural hazards review project.

    Hi there, just wondering where things are at with this project and whether there are any indicative timeframes on notification of options/plan changes?

    Queenstown Lakes District Council is currently in the final stages of analysing risk management options. Once complete, we’ll be hosting a number of community sessions in the latter half of 2021 to help guide selection of risk management options.
