Following careful consideration of the detailed resource consent decision and ongoing positive dialogue with the HWCP Directors, H&J Smith will not appeal the decision of Invercargill City Council to grant resource consent to the HWCP mall development.

“As a leading champion of inner city revitalisation, we’ve consistently said we’re willing to work with HWCP to ensure its proposal could succeed,” says Jason Smith, Managing Director of H&J Smith.

“Since the release of the decision we’ve worked with HWCP to positively progress our key concerns. These are now at a point where we’re keen to move forward and support the project for the benefits it will bring to the city.

“We acknowledge the resource consent itself is a thoroughly considered decision and that HWCP’s proposal has overarching support.

“On that basis, we’re willing to focus our efforts on collaborating with HWCP and the Council to deliver much improved pedestrian linkages for customers, visitors and all people who work and live in the wider CBD.

“Given our climate, not addressing pedestrian connectivity during this major redevelopment would be a huge opportunity lost.

“If we can get those linkages right, it will deliver a much improved CBD for Invercargill that will deliver significant benefits to the city for years to come,” says Mr Smith.
