An important step has been taken with the Council’s support for the Airbiz report.  This report was commissioned by the council in its previous term and supported by Enterprise North Canterbury and MainPower.

The Council notes the potential of the airfield for “general” aviation and associated businesses, and believes that it will make a significant contribution to the economic development of the District.
Possibilities of public private partnership will be investigated, as will options for protecting the land and its environs, including zoning and designating the land.
The opportunities have grown with the announcement that Wigram is to close soon.
The full report, inc luding the Airbiz report can be found on the Council website at: http://www.waimakariri.govt.nz/council/agendas/council/C_Sept2008.pdf – go to page 21.
