Foodstuffs is seeking resource consent for a staged redevelopment of the Pak ‘N’ Save supermarket site in the heart of Tamatea.

The owners of the 3.0485hectare site propose to build a new 5015sm Pak ‘N’ Save to replace the existing supermarket.

Plans lodged with the Napier City Council also encompass a stand-alone two-storey building with 10 retail tenancies on the ground floor and five office tenancies above, two drive-through fast food outlets, and a 435sm English-style bar and restaurant on the corner of Coventry and Leicester Avenues.

The existing gas station would remain in its existing location, where it has access onto Durham Avenue.

A bar and restaurant development is a discretionary activity in the zone. Plans for the reconfigured site provide parking for 375 vehicles – 80 fewer than the number required under the provisions of the District Plan.

The Council’s main concern centres on traffic implications of the proposed site redevelopment. It has sought a peer review of the traffic report submitted with the application.

The designers for the redevelopment are Wellington practice Archaus Architects.
