Ho­tel plan op­posed

Central Leader - - News -

More than 150 sub­mis­sions are op­pos­ing a change in height lim­its to al­low a lux­ury ho­tel on Auck­land’s wa­ter­front.

Sub­mis­sions on the pro­posal by Brit­o­mart de­vel­op­ers Cooper and Com­pany closed on July 28.

Auck­land City Coun­cil re­ceived 164 sub­mis­sions re­lat­ing to the private plan change to al­low higher build­ings in the his­toric Brit­o­mart precinct.

Nine were in sup­port, two sought amend­ments, and 153 were in op­po­si­tion.

Cooper and Com­pany hold the con­tract to de­velop the five-hectare precinct, bor­dered by Brit­o­mart Place, Quay St and Cus­toms St.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Matthew Cock­ram says a lux­ury ho­tel can’t be built within the ex­ist­ing height limit.

A date has not been set for a hear­ing on the private plan change.
