Date set for McDonalds
A hearing date has been set for the proposed McDonald’s restaurant in Balmoral.
It will be held from June 8 to 16 at the Deaf Society building on Balmoral Rd.
Balmoral Community Group spokesman Nathan Inkpen says getting a local venue is a victory for the group and will allow more people affected by the development to attend.
He says even those who haven’t made a submission can still have their voice heard by contacting the group and he encourages as many people as possible to attend.
The Balmoral Community Group also needs donations to fund its legal battle, he says.
The proposed restaurant would front Balmoral Rd and Wiremu St and would feature a 24-hour drive-through.
The times for the hearings are: June 8 and 9 from 9.30am to 5pm, June 11 from 1pm to 8pm, June 12 from 9.30pm to 5pm, June 15 from 1pm to 8pm and June 16 from 9.30am to 5pm.
