An Environment Court decision has ruled that Queenstown's Frankton Flats will be open to some retail development, but appears to rule out a proposed Pak 'n Save supermarket and Mitre 10 Mega store.

Although the 300-page decision by Judge Jane Borthwick has not been made public since being released to parties involved, the Queenstown Lakes District Council has had their view upheld on how the last significant area suitable for retail or industrial use should be zoned.

A map released by the council shows that the area, nicknamed "Hendo's Hole" after the failed retail precinct envisioned by David Henderson left a large unfinished underground carpark exposed, will be the centre of retail developments,.
