Shotover Park Ltd for a 36-lot subdivision near Glenda Dr
intended to centralise ''industrial and business development
The lots surround the proposed Mitre 10 Mega and Pak'nSave
Shotover Park chief executive and co-managing director
Alastair Porter said many of the lots had already been sold
to ''light commercial users''.
The resource consent application says the proposed
subdivision dates back to 2009, with the most recent consent
application made in March 2011.
The new consent application, lodged nearly two weeks ago,
''reflects the confirmed roading for the Frankton Flats''.
Maps showing the proposed lots are included in the
application and the lots are seen to be accessed via the
proposed Eastern Access Road.
The application notes that the ''proposed new roading network
for the Frankton Flats has been the subject of an ongoing
discussion between the Queenstown Lakes District Council, the
New Zealand Transport [Agency] and the applicant''.
The proposed site is within an area known as the Frankton
Flats, which is subject to proposed Plan Change 19, which is

Mr Porter said the Environment Court's decision on Plan

The lots are of varying sizes, which the application says is
necessary ''for the various potential uses of the land'',
whether it be for industrial use or for business use.

industrial area, which has a mix of uses not dissimilar to
that expected in the proposed subdivision.''
The sites are generally flat, requiring minimal earthworks
''to establish buildings for industrial and/or other
activities, as promoted in PC19''.
''The location of the proposed new lots adjacent to the
existing Glenda Drive Industrial Estate provides the
opportunity for the centralising of industrial and business
development within Queenstown and ensures the proposed
subdivision is compatible with the adjacent developed area.''
