Alastair Porter, CEO and co-managing director of Porter Group applauds granting of consent for Pak’n’Save and Mitre 10 Mega stores at Shotover Park, Queenstown. He said a key point in the decision is the independent Planning Commissioners’ finding that the stores will promote economic growth in the Queenstown District.
“Affordable building and living in Queenstown got a step closer today with the granting of resource consents for a Pak’n’Save supermarket and Mitre 10 Mega store today,” Alastair Porter said today.
“Getting these stores established through the planning process has taken an extraordinary and unnecessary amount of time and cost for all parties,” he said as the battle has seen previous resource consent applications declined by Council, granted in the Environment Court, overturned in the High Court and appealed to the Court of Appeal and then the subject of this new application to the QLDC which has now been granted.
Mr Porter said that the landowners are now working with the NZ Transport Agency to have the necessary roads built in the 2014/15 summer construction season and completed before winter 2015.
