Air Nelson flights to PPQ delayed...

Work on the Paraparaumu Airport development began this week. It is stage one of the development. Contractors had begun preparing earthworks for a planned Mitre 10 megastore, said Paraparaumu Air¬port chief executive Steve Bootten. To see work starting was "fantas¬tic", he said, although he would have preferred the first project to be the airport terminal but there were some delays with the Civil Aviation Auth¬ority. Air Nelson had requested some changes to the airspace manage¬ment, and so the airport put in an application to the CAA. They are awaiting that decision. Commercial flights would not be starting this year, he said. Paraparaumu Airport has lodged a number of resource consent applications with Kapiti Coast Dis¬trict Council, one of which was for the Mitre 10 megastore. The council said last month that earthworks associated with the building and access road had been issued, non-notified. It was still considering whether an application for the building itself would be publicly notified, and was seeking further information from the airport.
