(NZ) Nelson Golf Club Seeks Peninsula Land from Airport Proposal

POSTED ON July 8, 2024 @ 9:53 am

A solution to the threat of Nelson’s only 18-hole championship golf course being halved by an airport runway extension could be one step closer as the council wades into land-use discussions.

Nelson Airport is seeking to enable the necessary planning and zoning framework to allow it to eventually extend its runway which would improve safety and is claimed to better cater to future low-emission aircraft.

However, the airport’s proposal would cut the Nelson Golf Club in half.

The airport’s contentious application was scrutinised at a plan change hearing in May.

An architect has advised the club that constructing an 18-hole championship golf course would not be possible without use of the peninsula of land adjacent to the airport.

The council, a 50 per cent shareholder of the airport and the regulatory authority overseeing the plan change application, has been keeping itself at arm’s length from the process so as to not interfere in the quasi-judicial process of the hearing.
