Waitaki MP Jacqui Dean said the successful sale of the Queenstown Lakes District Council’s 10.69 ha Scurr Heights block, in Wanaka was a win-win for all.

“Not only does the sale open the way for a new residential subdivision in Wanaka, but the proceeds of the sale will also benefit ratepayers.

“We will see more housing being developed, which addresses a key issue in the area, at the same time allowing extra funds to meet ratepayers’ needs into the future.

“I think this is an exciting development for Wanaka as it continues to grow and develop.

“The town will need new and improved facilities to meet this growth, like the new swimming complex, and I’m hopeful that the funds from this sale will be redirected back to Wanaka.”
