A DE­CI­SION on a po­ten­tial de­vel­op­ment at Ladies Mile has been de­layed un­til next month.

Af­ter seek­ing com­mu­nity feed­back, the Queen­stown Lakes Dis­trict Coun­cil dis­cussed a pro­posal to amend its Spe­cial Hous­ing Area lead pol­icy to in­clude the Ladies Mile area, be­tween Lake Hayes and Lower Sho­tover, in Au­gust.

At the time the mat­ter was left on the ta­ble for coun­cil staff to address a number of is­sues raised by coun­cil­lors and re­port back to the coun­cil at this month’s meet­ing.

How­ever, be­cause the Septem­ber meet­ing — held on Thurs­day this week — was in Wanaka, the coun­cil de­cided to post­pone the con­sid­er­a­tion of the Ladies Mile item un­til its next meet­ing, which will be in Queen­stown.

In a state­ment, coun­cil com­mu­ni­ca­tions and en­gage­ment man­ager Naell Crosby­Roe said the coun­cil ac­knowl­edged the is­sue was an im­por­tant one for Queen­stown and at­tracted a ‘‘sig­nif­i­cant’’ amount of in­ter­est.

‘‘Given that the de­ci­sions be­ing dis­cussed are not time­crit­i­cal at this point, it is im­por­tant that the mat­ter be heard in Queen­stown to en­sure ev­ery­one with an in­ter­est is able to at­tend with rel­a­tive ease.’’

The item is ex­pected to come back to the coun­cil at its meet­ing in the re­sort on

Oc­to­ber 26.
