Councillor Heath Copland

Councillor Heath Copland

Arrowtown Ward

Born and bred in Southland, Arrowtown, Queenstown and Wānaka have always been family holiday destinations, and I’m very proud to now call Arrowtown my permanent home.  My wife and I love the region and couldn’t think of a better place to raise our young daughter.  Arrowtown is a unique village with historical importance that draws visitors from afar, yet I believe we need to protect the very attributes that makes Arrowtown so special.  During my first term on the QLDC, I will strive to make myself available to residents and visitors through community engagement.  My life experiences to date, along with a common sense attitude should serve me well in my role as Councillor over the coming triennium.
