The long-awaited decision on Frankton Flats zoning - known as
plan change 19 - was released on Tuesday.
However, most of the affected parties were still poring over
the 300-page document yesterday.
Queenstown Lakes District Council policy and planning general
manager Phil Pannett confirmed the Environment Court had
released the decision.
He told the Otago Daily Times he had not had time to
brief the councillors on its outcomes because of the length
of the interim decision document.
''It has set the scene for where industry will go, where
showroom and other types of activities will go,'' Mr Pannett
The purpose of the plan change was to provide for
comprehensive rezoning of the land known as the Frankton
Flats, which includes the site for the proposed Mitre 10 Mega
and Pak 'n Save, to enable activities including educational,
residential, visitor accommodation, commercial, industrial
and business activities.
Remarkables Park Ltd director Alastair Porter said he had
received the decision, but given its complexity, he needed
time to understand it before commenting in the media.
