Two separate plan changes - relating respectively to a $300
million development in Queenstown and affordable and
community housing in the Lakes district - are likely to be
made operative after the Queenstown Lakes District Council's
full meeting in Queenstown next week.
The developer behind the proposed Pak'n Save and Mitre 10
Mega project on Frankton Flats has offered a compromise, but
the Queenstown Lakes District Council says it has ''no
interest'' in debating it through the media.
A decade after Lakes Leisure was formed, and five years after
Lakes Environmental began, both organisations were absorbed
into the Queenstown Lakes District Council (QLDC) yesterday
with little fanfare.
A decision to create a $375,000 council events fund and a
panel to consider applications prompted Queenstown Lakes
Mayor Vanessa van Uden to remind councillors they served the
entire district, not separate townships within it.
