Ranfurly plans put on hold
A planned development at the Ranfurly Veterans House may go to the Environment Court.
Resource consent was granted for the Three Kings project after a hearing in June, but two appeals have been lodged against it.
Christchurch-based company Retirement Assets and the Ranfurly Trust plan to build a new aged care hospital, a 177- unit retirement village with carparking and alter the existing Veterans House.
Retirement Assets chief executive Peter Cross says he was pleased with the consent granted, but until the objections are dealt with the project is at a standstill.
He says meetings will be called between the developers and those appealing the consent to see if the matter can be resolved through mediation.
The appeals lodged by two Warren Ave residents relate to concerns about extra traffi c generated by a new driveway.
