No liquor store

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Stu­dents liv­ing in the heart of cen­tral Auck­land’s uni­ver­sity hous­ing zone will still have to walk a lit­tle fur­ther to buy al­co­hol with a pro­posed bot­tle store on Mount St not go­ing ahead. Busi­ness­man Moueen Had­dad of Jor­dan River Ltd had ap­plied for a liquor li­cence in March to run an al­co­hol shop in the for­mer con­ve­nience store at 11a Mount St, with trad­ing hours of 9am to mid­night, seven days a week, Auck­land City Har­bour News, March 27. An Auck­land Coun­cil spokesman says Mr Had­dad has with­drawn his ap­pli­ca­tion and did not pro­ceed with the li­cens­ing process. The plans were met with strong op­po­si­tion from the Uni­ver­sity of Auck­land and AUT Uni­ver­sity who both filed ob­jec­tions. The bot­tle shop would have been sur­rounded by stu­dent ac­com­mo­da­tion and sit­u­ated next door to a Mus­lim prayer hall.
