Queenstown is experiencing significant economic, residential and visitor growth. Long term forecasts predict continuing increase in domestic and international visitors and the resident population.
QLDC, in partnership with the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) and Otago Regional Council (ORC), is addressing the growth challenges and opportunities for Queenstown’s town centre through a Masterplan1. The Masterplan is a 35-year vision that sets the direction for the town centre. It includes initiatives related to public and passenger transport, arterial routes and parking.
QLDC’s objectives related to parking are three-fold (the Objectives):
(a) Improve the availability of parking to meet demand by mid-2022.
(b) Reduce the congestion created by car parking related vehicle movements in the town centre.
(c) Progressively improve resident and visitor experience of the town centre.
QLDC has investigated options to meet these Objectives through an Indicative Business Case adopted in December 2017 and a Detailed Business Case adopted in June 2018, which included consideration of responses to a Market Sounding exercise carried out in May 2018. These focused on the potential development of car parking buildings on two council- controlled sites, on Ballarat Street and Boundary Street. QLDC considers these options feasible. However, QLDC is also interested in any alternative or supplementary options the private sector may provide which meet the Objectives.
This ROI is being issued to canvas options for private sector-led car parking development. These may include standalone parking or mixed-use developments on private land. QLDC’s Indicative Business Case has evaluated car parking options on a range of council-owned or administered sites. However, QLDC is open to options on any private or council site.
