Store gets con­sent

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

The con­tro­ver­sial Bun­nings store in Arch Hill was granted re­source con­sent this week. A four-per­son Auck­land Coun­cil hear­ing com­mis­sion ap­proved con­sent sub­ject to con­di­tions which will limit trad­ing hours and goods de­liv­ery, im­pose noise con­trols and re­strict ve­hi­cle move­ments. The planned three-level store is to be built on the cor­ner of Great North Rd and King St. Arch Hill res­i­dents protested at the four-day hear­ing last month ( Auck­land City Har­bour News, Oc­to­ber 11). Sue Lyons is among the 51 peo­ple who made a sub­mis­sion op­pos­ing the store. ‘‘I’m com­pletely blown away. It’s al­most as if they didn’t hear a word we said. I can’t be­lieve that Auck­land Coun­cil is so short-sighted.’’ She says it may be too ex­pen­sive for res­i­dents to take the case to the En­vi­ron­ment Court. Par­ties have 15 work­ing days to file an ap­peal.
