Queenstown council to appeal mega-store approval
07 Sep 2012
Can someone please explain how this development is less "industrial" than what is already happening next door in Glenda Drive. There's already builders supplies, landscape supplies, cafes and everything else that's in the MItre10 Mega concept down there.
And where's the residential units upstairs? This doesn't fit with the Queenstown industrial zoning, it had better go over to Cromwell too.
But seriously, the "loss" of heavy industrial to Cromwell is the reality and we should encourage it for the growth and sustainability of the wider district. The issue here is around land value, not inappropriate use, and our council can't influence values. They should be either working with,or amalgamating with Central Otago to create an framework where the future needs of the area are met.

Council has forgotten
QLDC what a poor decision. The Government needs to get involve in this fiasco. QLDC couldn't organize a pii up in a brewery

I wonder why anyone (home owner, builder, developer) would bother with Queenstown. If it's not your rival taking you to court, it's the council.
