Green light at last: PAK’nSAVE Wakatipu resource consent approved

Foodstuffs is thrilled to confirm that we have been granted resource consent, as of Wednesday 7 May 2014, to build a PAK’nSAVE supermarket in Shotover Park, Queenstown. The new store, which will be called PAK’nSAVE Wakatipu, has been many years in the planning and to finally reach this stage is incredibly exciting. 

Foodstuffs is thrilled to confirm that we have been granted resource consent, as of Wednesday 7 May 2014, to build a PAK’nSAVE supermarket in Shotover Park, Queenstown. The new store, which will be called PAK’nSAVE Wakatipu, has been many years in the planning and to finally reach this stage is incredibly exciting.

 

Roger Davidson, General Manager Property and Retail Development, Foodstuffs South Island Limited says, “This is a great reward for the large number of people involved and we appreciate the ongoing commitment our partners in the Shotover Park Development, the Porter Group and Mega Mitre 10, have shown during the resource consent process.”

 

“We can’t wait to forge ahead with building the new store and bringing PAK’nSAVE’s low grocery price offering to the community of Queenstown,” says Davidson. “This is the green light we needed to start developing the architectural design for the store. We want to give Queenstown a modern supermarket with plenty of natural light and other sustainability features designed not only to be kind to the environment but to enhance our customers overall shopping experience.”

 

Davidson says aside from the store design there are a number of key aspects still to be worked through between Foodstuffs and the local council. The infrastructure required to service the development is an area of ongoing discussion, with the roading requirements for example being just one component which developers and the council will need to take into account as things progress and building commences.
