Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC) is a territorial authority in Te Wai Pounamu South Island of Aotearoa New Zealand, with a resident population of approximately 39,500 which is projected to increase to 74,400 by 2048. It is also a premier tourist destination making a significant contribution to the national economy, and tourism is the biggest employer in the district. As majority stakeholder the Council is keen to understand and ensure that decisions regarding the future of both Queenstown and Wānaka Airports are objectively informed and represent all perspectives on the issue. Queenstown Airport Corporation has agreed to pause on its future development plans while further work is undertaken to understand the societal and economic effects to inform how these airports can help achieve desirable community outcomes. To inform these we are seeking independent economic and social impact assessments supported by comprehensive stakeholder engagement. The Council is looking for credible providers who have the capability, experience and skills to deliver the economic and social impact assessments and stakeholder engagement that will inform decision-making on future infrastructure developments that have a high level of community interest.
This tender has been awarded.
