Wanaka Office Updates
Over the past few months, the QLDC Wanaka office has been undergoing a series of refurbishments in order to ultimately provide the Upper Clutha community with a more streamlined Council service in a single office location at 47 Ardmore Street.
It is anticipated that all of the Wanaka refurbishments will be completed by the end of February 2019, following early morning deliveries of the two relocatable buildings in mid-late January 2019. The delivery dates and related carpark closures will be communicated as soon as possible (here, on the QLDC Facebook page and through local media).
When the Ardmore Street carpark is closed for these deliveries, temporary all-day parking (8:00am-8:00pm) will be available at the Wanaka showgrounds. This will be open to the public from the start of December.
The key stages in this project are:
- installing two relocatable offices behind the existing Ardmore Street office
- demolishing the old St John building to compensate for any reduction in carpark capacity as a result of these relocatables; and
- refurbishing the existing Ardmore Street office.
For service during this time:
- On 20 December 2018, core customer-facing staff returned to the existing Ardmore Street office. The Reece Crescent office has now closed.
Long term plans for Wanaka:
The longer term vision for Wanaka is to create a new single office as part of the implementation of the Wanaka Masterplan.
