The Advisory Group will be chaired by well-known Queenstown local Jane Taylor.

“I’m delighted to be leading a group of such highly skilled practitioners, with a collective goal of making positive change for everyone who uses the Town Centre. Together we bring local and national perspective to a very challenging and very rewarding project,” Ms Taylor said.

The group will meet for the first time on May 4 and monthly going forward.
