Hous­ing fight

Central Leader - - News -

Logan Park res­i­dents are gear­ing up for their En­vi­ron­ment Court bat­tle against a ho­tel and apart­ment de­vel­op­ment.

A hear­ing is set for Au­gust 4 to 7.

The 110-apart­ment de­vel­op­ment and 100bed ho­tel de­vel­op­ment on the for­mer Kings­gate Ho­tel site in Camp­bell Rd was re­fused re­source con­sent last year.

De­vel­op­ers the Logan Trust are ap­peal­ing the de­ci­sion, but res­i­dents, the coun­cil and Corn­wall Park Trust Board op­pose the ap­peal.

Res­i­dents group mem­ber Maria De Jong says they’re now rais­ing the $10,000 needed for le­gal fees. “We feel we’ve got a very good case for op­pos­ing high-den­sity hous­ing.”
