Consultation has concluded

Thanks to everyone who sent in feedback on the draft Masterplan and proposed Planning - we received over 500 submissions. You can download and read the feedback received on the right hand side of this page.


Background

In November 2020 we shared some early ideas for a Masterplan to guide how the Te Pūtahi Ladies Mile area can grow and change for the benefit of the existing community and future generations. These ideas generated a lot of local feedback which helped the project team to develop an emerging Masterplan and some draft planning rules to support it. This was then released for community feedback in April 2021, with feedback closing on 28 May 2021.

You'll find the draft Masterplan and Planning Provisions below. On the right hand side of this page you'll also find lots of background information and all of the feedback received so far.



Draft Masterplan and associated documents

The draft Masterplan provides an impression of what Te Pūtahi Ladies Mile could look like in the future. In summary, it includes a wide mixture of development densities, opportunity for improved bus services, local facilities such as a town centre, a primary school and a high school and a community and sports centre.

The Masterplan will provide certainty to the community and sets expectations for developers on how the area could change over time. It's a concept for the future which will be brought to life through a district plan variation, setting clear rules for what can happen where (read more on this in the planning provisions section below).

The draft Masterplan is a very large document. It has been split into sections below.

>> Part 1 - Introduction (including national and regional policy alignment, key stakeholders, design principles, key moves and objectives)

>> Part 2a - Context Analysis (including geographic scope, history, views from the site, demographics)

>> Part 2b - Context Analysis (including local ecology, existing amenities, views and arrival, constraints and opportunities)

>> Part 3 - Engagement (including how feedback has been incorporated into this draft Masterplan)

>> Part 4 - Design Response (including principles, key moves, key features, illustrative Masterplan)

>> Part 4a - Design Principle 1: Consider SH6 as a gateway to Queenstown

>> Part 4b - Design Principle 2: Foster a unique and enduring identity

>> Part 4c - Design Principle 3: Support a healthy environment and ecology

>> Part 4d - Design Principle 4: Create self sustained and connected communities

>> Part 4e - Design Principle 5: Ensure sustainable transport Networks Communities

>> Part 4f - Design Principle 6: Do density well, provide quality and diverse housing

>> Part 4g - Design Principle 7: Develop a resilient and adaptable plan

>> Te Pūtahi Ladies Mile Transport Strategy


We've also included a link to the presentation made at the Community Information Session held on 5 May.

Draft Planning Provisions

The Masterplan sets out the spatial framework and ensures a holistic approach to planning for growth in this area of the Wakatipu Basin. But it is a non-statutory document. To give effect to the Masterplan at a statutory level, a variation to the Proposed District Plan has been drafted to translate the key outcomes of the Masterplan into zones, objectives, policies and rules for incorporation into the Proposed District Plan.

The development of the Masterplan and the feedback received from stakeholders and the public (through the public open days and surveys held in November 2020) has formed the basis for the draft provisions.

What are the draft District Plan provisions trying to do?

The draft provisions have been formulated as amendments to the existing Proposed District Plan and are therefore shown as additions (underlined text) and deletions (strikethrough text). One new chapter District Plan chapter has been proposed: the Te Pūtahi Ladies Mile Town Centre Zone. This is to ensure consistency with the other existing town centres (Queenstown, Wanaka and Arrowtown) each of which have their own individual chapters.

The key concepts of the draft amendments to the Proposed District Plan include:

  • The rezoning of land currently zoned Rural, Rural Lifestyle, or Large Lot Residential to a mixture of High Density, Medium Density and Lower Density Suburban Residential Zones and the extension of the existing Urban Growth Boundary in this area to incorporate these areas;
  • The introduction of a Structure Plan that identifies the location of key infrastructure to be provided, key features to be protected, and breaks down the area into Sub-Areas as a mechanism to ensure appropriate integration of development;
  • Introduction of an average density within the High and Medium Density zoned areas to achieve a density sufficient to encourage a shift to different transport modes and support the new town centre area;
  • Requiring resource consent for buildings in these areas, with standards relating to residential amenity and design, to ensure that higher density development also brings high quality residential amenity;
  • The removal of minimum carparking activities for all activities within the Structure Plan area, and the introduction of maximum carparking standards to encourage a shift to alternative transport modes; and
  • The rezoning of the Council-owned property at 516 Frankton-Ladies Mile Highway to Open Space and Recreation – Community Purposes Zone to enable this land to be developed for community facilities for both the existing communities and the future community.

The full suite of draft planning provisions can be read below.
