You may have noticed the road works around our Queenstown office and library located on Gorge Road. Don’t worry, both are still open so pop in and see our friendly team! For information on the road works underway, please visit our Major Projects page.

The Frankton and Wānaka Transfer Station facilities will close every Sunday, starting 27 November until 8 January 2023, due to staff shortages. Both facilities will be open 8.00am-5.00pm Monday to Saturday. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Goat Control Operation 2022

We've employed the services of professional contractors to carry out a goat control operation starting from Monday 22 August 2022.

This operation aims to attempt to reduce the likelihood of goats becoming a hazard to vehicles, and causing further nuisance to residents' properties.

Work will continue for approximately one month from Monday 22 August and is weather dependent.

Locations

The goat control operation will target the following locations:

  • Matakauri Park, Gorge Road
  • Bluffs above Matakauri Park
  • Area above Boydtown Way, Huff Street and Fryer Street
  • Area above Bowen Street and Kiely Lane
  • Area above Greenstone Place, Scott Place and Caples Place, Fernhill
  • Water Tank Reserve Crows Nest - Arthurs Point.

Precautions

This operation will involve ground hunting and contractors will be clearly visible.

Any public walking tracks will be closed in reserves where work is being carried out, and signage and personnel will be in place during closure periods.
