Central Leader - - News -

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.
