Staff Housing Information Series: Housemart & QLCHT


A free three-part Staff Housing Information Series run by the Queenstown Business Chamber of Commerce with funding support from Te Hau Toka Southern Lakes Wellbeing Group, aiming to provide more detail about purchasing, leasing, and managing worker accommodation to help business leaders with decision-making.

Information is power and by providing this we may be able to empower our business owners to make decisions on this topic.

We look forward to seeing you there.


Queenstown Lakes Community Housing trust (Julie Scott, Chief Executive Office)

What is the role of the trust and how can this help my employees.

Queenstown Lakes Community Housing Trust’s mission is to help committed residents of the Queenstown Lakes District into decent affordable housing with secure tenure.

Established in 2007 this trust is an independent, not for profit, community owned organisation. QLCHT has a range of housing programmes, each designed to assist eligible low to moderate income households, who contribute to the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of this District and are genuinely struggling to commit to the area because of the housing affordability issue.
