Neighbours of two proposed Wanaka developments have opposed the applications and will take their case to resource consent hearings next month.

A hearing for the Teat Family Trust's proposal for a ``food truck village'' to be established on their Brownston St property will be held on November 21.

The trust sought resource consent for four to five food trucks, seating and staff carparking to be established on its 3036sqm property near the town centre.

The proposal has received two submissions from neighbouring residences opposing the application in its entirety.

Colin Wollstein opposed the application as it had ``too many negative effects on my neighbouring property for my consent to be provided''.

Mr Wollstein listed noise, cooking odours, and a lack of toilet and rubbish facilities as significant negative effects on neighbouring properties.

Likewise, four other neighbours have submitted together, listing similar concerns, and believed it did not achieve the objectives and policies of either the Queenstown Lakes operative district plan (ODP) or proposed district plan (PDP).

The land is zoned high density residential in the ODP and medium density residential in the PDP.

Another resource consent hearing has been set for the following week to decide the proposal by Apres Demain Ltd to undertake a two-lot subdivision and establish two dwellings at Paddock Bay.

One dwelling would be a three-bedroom 513sqm home, while the other would be a relocated five-bay shed already on site, reconfigured into workers' accommodation.

The application has received five submissions from Apres Demain's neighbours, all in opposition.

The submitters believed the proposed development was not sensitive to its position within an outstanding natural feature and would detract from the surrounding landscape.

The hearing is set for November 27.
