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.
There are some Arrowtown residents who fundamentally oppose
an affordable housing development in the small village, but
others who made submissions against a housing proposal are
being offered a compromise.
