Information on Special Housing Areas around Arrowtown

At the full QLDC Council meeting on 3rd June the motion below proposed by Councillor Gilmore and seconded by our local ward Councillor Scott Stevens was passed overwhelmingly with only Councillor Gazzard voting against. (Councillor Gazzard wanted to add the (Centennial Avenue) Bracken Ridge SHA but got no support for that)
In summary the motion only 4 SHA expressions go further - NONE of these are amongst the 3 SHAs proposed on the Arrowtown Urban Growth Boundary !!!
We do not think that the Council will accept a no growth option for Arrowtown so we will need to work together to  establish a controlled growth plan for Arrowtown that everyone can live with and which enhances Arrowtown's special character.
Look out for Council driven charettes/workshops/meetings in the near future.
These are also likely cover the medium density plans for parts of Arrowtown under the current District Plan Review due out for consultation in August.

We look forward to continuing to act on behalf of our fellow Arrowtowners.
