Council Buys Land at Rangiora Airfield


The Waimakariri District Council has bought a block of land adjacent to the Rangiora Airfield.

The reasons for this were twofold. Firstly, the provide more space in the future because the airfield is rapidly running out of space for further development.  Secondly, to protect the margins of the airfield from inappropriate development.

The airfield, first bought by the Rangiora County Council after World War II, is seen as having great potential for driving economic development in Waimakariri District.
