You may have heard about plans for a new international airport in Tarras, Central Otago. It’s being planned despite strong community opposition, no true need for it and massive concerns about the environment and the future of several local communities it will impact.
The planned airport is being pushed ahead by Christchurch Airport, who secretly purchased a huge area of local farmland and now say that Central Otago (and New Zealand) “needs” another big airport.
