    Concerns a bed tax isn't a good solution to Queenstown's infrastructure woes

    Concerns a bed tax isn't a good solution to Queenstown's infrastructure woes


    More than 80 percent of local voters have said they'd support a visitor levy - in a non-binding referendum.

    Now it's up to the Government to bring in legislation which would allow it to happen.

    Tourism Industry Aotearoa chief Chris Roberts says ratepayers obviously want someone else to fix the region's infrastructure problems.

    But he says a bed tax isn't the way.

    Roberts says issues like the transport system don't need a levy - they just need the Council to finally make some decisions.
