    Queenstown developers are warning they might take legal action, if the local council forces them to contribute to community housing

    Queenstown developers are warning they might take legal action, if the local council forces them to contribute to community housing


    Queenstown Lakes District Council is proposing developers contribute five-percent of the estimated sales value of new subdivisions - either through land or a monetary payment - to fund construction of affordable housing.

    The Otago Daily Times reports the bulk of 180 submissions on the proposal are against it.

    Some are claiming it's a form of tax.
