Submissions on the draft Queenstown Lakes Spatial Plan open on Friday 19 March 2021.


A draft Queenstown Lakes Spatial Plan has been developed which proposes a vision and framework for how and where our district will grow in the future, in this case looking out to 2050. It will guide decisions, and investment across local, regional and central government to ensure we’re delivering the best possible future for our community and the generations that will follow us.


Grow Well | Whaiora
The draft Spatial Plan is based around the phrase ‘Grow Well’ or ‘Whaiora’ in Te Reo Māori which translates to “in the pursuit of wellness”.
It is our goal, as part of the Lakes District community, to support positive change that benefits the wellbeing of the whole district both now and in the future


Get informed

The draft Spatial Plan has been informed by many conversations with the community between 2018 and 2020.

We, along with our Central Government and Kāi Tahu partners welcomed hearing insights from across the district on people’s aspirations for the future and what matters most about the places we live, work, play and invest in.

We now invite you to take a look at what’s being proposed in the draft Spatial Plan. Read through the information below and share your views on whether you think it will support our district to Grow Well.
