Business As Usual At Northcote’s Fox Outlet Centre

Media Release


A spokesperson for Discount Brands Outlet Centres Ltd, the company which owns the Fox Outlet Centre located on Akoranga Drive in Northcote, says a Supreme Court ruling that North Shore City Council did not follow correct procedures in giving the project a non-notified resource consent in 2003 has no practical effect on the flourishing new retail centre, which opened late last year. The decision dealt with Council procedural issues, and not the merits of the outlet centre.

The spokesperson also said Discount Brands has already obtained an additional and approved resource consent from North Shore City Council, granted by Independent Commissioners appointed by the Council. In practice, the Supreme Court ruling on the previous consent is academic and has no impact on the centre.

Fox Outlet Centre Manager, Fleur Pearce said customer traffic continues to increase at the Centre, which is trading well, and new tenants are progressively taking up the remaining space.
