Applications for leave to appeal by Pak'n Save proposer
Foodstuffs South Island Ltd and developers Shotover Park Ltd
and Remarkables Park Ltd against a High Court decision to
dismiss appeals arising from an Environment Court decision
should be lodged with the High Court.
This was the judgement of the Court of Appeal dated and
released yesterday. The procedure for appeals to the Court of
Appeal under the Resource Management Act was changed by the
Criminal Procedure Act in July.
The applicants submitted the new procedure applied only to
proceedings which started after July 1, and their
applications for leave should be made to the High Court in
the first instance.
However, the Queenstown Lakes District Council and Queenstown
Central Ltd, as respondents, submitted the new procedure
applied to all proceedings.
