A second Countdown supermarket is being proposed for Paraparaumu.
A publicly notified resource consent shows developer Kāpiti Retail Holdings wants to create the supermarket at 160 Kāpiti Rd.
The site, zoned general industrial, used to be occupied by a PlaceMakers store, which relocated some years ago into nearby Kāpiti Coast Airport land.
A report by Forme Planning said some of the key elements included a 3800sq m supermarket building including 200sq m of office and 200sq m for online (pick-up) activities.
There would be 211 parking spaces, the main access would be via the existing roundabout intersection in Kāpiti Rd with Friendship Place, and a second southern exit for left-turn manoeuvres only.
The proposed development comprised an approximate area of 16,617sq m within a 2.6ha site.
The report said initial site preparation and bulk earthworks could take three months.
And construction of the supermarket sub-grade, its vertical construction and site works could take eight months.
There would be a number of positive effects, the report said, including an additional full-service supermarket within Paraparaumu, reduction in people's travel time to fulfil their grocery needs as well as a more sustainable travel pattern, employment during construction and when operational (a supermarket of this size could employ 80 to 100 staff both full time and part time), add to the economic development of the area, and an attractive building would contribute to the amenity values of the area.
Another report, this time from Insight Economics, said trade impact modelling of the new supermarket would "affect the turnover of food retailers across the district to varying degrees in direct proportion to their proximity".
"For example the greatest trade impacts (20 per cent) will be felt by the New World store at Kāpiti Landing, and the nearby Four Square store on Kāpiti Rd whose trade catchments have the greatest overlap with the proposed new Countdown store.
"As a result, a significant share of the new store's trade impacts will be absorbed by businesses located outside the district's centre hierarchy.
"This in turn will help to avoid any adverse economic effects arising from the proposal."
Countdown property director Matt Grainger said, "The Kāpiti Coast community is growing rapidly and we're really excited about the opportunity to deliver a brand new, additional Countdown store to the area to help meet that demand.
"We're looking forward to working through the details of how we can achieve this with the developer Kāpiti Retail Holdings and Kāpiti Coast District Council."
Countdown already has a presence in Paraparaumu with a supermarket in the Coastlands area.
The publicly notified resource consent closes on November 10 at 5pm.
