Resource Consent Secured for Queenstown Pak ‘N Save29 Jul 2012 |
Anderson Lloyd’s Resource Management team, led by Partner Jen Crawford and Associate Annabel Ritchie, have secured resource consent for Foodstuffs South Island Limited to enable the construction of the Queenstown Pak ‘N Save and associated fuel facility at Frankton Flats, near Queenstown airport. Commercial property advice on the acquisition of the site was provided by Anderson Lloyd Partner Mike Kerr.
The Queenstown Lakes District Council originally rejected the proposal and this was successfully appealed by Foodstuffs to the Environment Court, with a 98 page judgement issued by Judge Jon Jackson on 10 July 2012.
This is a significant business development for the district. The $30 million project will be twice the size of Foodstuffs’ New World supermarket at Frankton and, with the creation of an additional 250 jobs, it will be the district’s second largest employer after NZSki.
“We worked closely with our client Foodstuffs throughout the project development phase and are delighted with the outcome. It was a real team effort involving a range of experts and we are pleased to have played a role in securing the right result. ” Jen Crawford said.
