Fight in store for res­i­dents

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

The En­vi­ron­ment Court may stage round two of the bat­tle over the con­tro­ver­sial Bun­nings store in Arch Hill.

Res­i­dents will file an ap­peal to the court af­ter re­source con­sent was ap­proved last month for the hard­ware gi­ant’s three-level store at 272-302 Great North Rd.

A spokesman for the Arch Hill Res­i­dents In­cor­po­rated So­ci­ety says res­i­dents have no op­tion but to ex­er­cise their right of ap­peal.

‘‘Con­cerns that we put to the In­de­pen­dent Com­mis­sion­ers in the first round con­sent hear­ing re­main valid and have not been ad­dressed in the de­ci­sion,’’ he says.

Res­i­dents fear the store will over­bur­den their streets with traf­fic, noise and parked cars.

The con­sent was ap­proved sub­ject to con­di­tions which will limit trad­ing hours and goods de­liv­ery, im­pose noise con­trols and re­strict ve­hi­cle move­ments.
