Auckland-based Rocket Lab said its decision was partly due to the time it was taking to get the necessary resource consent from Christchurch City Council.
When the company announced the Canterbury site, it said it was also considering moving its rocket manufacturing operation to Christchurch - creating up to 200 jobs.
It has now decided on a location on the Mahia Peninsula, for which it already has the necessary consents, as the site where it aims to launch rockets from 2017.
Rocket Lab founder Peter Beck said, because Mahia Peninsula was more remote than Kaitorete Spit, more launches could be made from there.
"A resource consent process is a resource consent process, and it takes however long it takes," he said.
"We're continuing to work through that process down there, but the Mahia site was an accelerated and simpler site to gain resource consent for."
Mr Beck said launching from Mahia Peninsula made it more likely its rockets would be manufactured in Auckland, rather than Christchurch.

So jobs and other opportunities lost to a region in need and denying me to watch f**king rockets being launched

It's all about the bloody council pissing around again. To many idiots wanting to put their
2 cents worth. Council, E-can, CERA, Christchurch rebuild committee and every man and his
Every time they piss off another big business is a loss for us and a gain for another city or
another country.
