GROW WELL | WHAIORA - Spatial Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

A 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 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

The Grow Well Whaiora Partnership would like to thank the community who took the time to provide feedback on the Spatial Plan over the past three years. 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.

The Queenstown Lakes Spatial Plan, the first to be prepared for the district, was adopted by full Council on 29 July. Read the full final plan in the document library.

Feedback for the formal community consultation closed on 19 April 2021 and submissions were collated and processed in preparation of the hearings which took place on 3 and 4 May 2021. Final submissions on the draft Queenstown Lakes Spatial Plan are available to view in the document library.

All the recommended changes outlined in the report from the Hearings Panel Chair were incorporated into the final plan. A summary of these changes titled 'Spatial Plan Schedule of Changes for the final draft' can be viewed in the document library.


Next Steps

The next phase of work with the Grow Well Whaiora Partners will be delivering the programme of work identified in the final Plan.

Going forward, the Spatial Plan will be reviewed on a three-year cycle except for the next plan cycle, which will be completed within two years. This is to enable the Spatial Plan to inform the 2024 Ten Year Plan and 30 Year Infrastructure Strategy.
