Lodge plans major development
ACromwell businessman is promising ‘‘revolutionary’’ changes to the town if a proposed development goes ahead. Alistair Stark, a director of Golden Gate Lodge, has unveiled development plans for the business which includes an information centre within the complex, as well as a separate development on vacant adjacent land overlooking the golf course.
‘‘It would be quite revolutionary for Cromwell. It’s something that’s not currently operating in town . . . if it does eventuate it will have a significant impact on how we do activities from there.’’
The Golden Gate concept plans show a proposed subdivision, overlooking the golf course, including potentially a future swimming pool/spa, and feature pond.
Stark would not reveal any more details about the project because the developers were not ready to go public, he said.
The information centre would be developed in opposition to the Central Otago District Council’s i-SITE, which is to be relocated to a leased building on the periphery of the mall.
Revolutionary: General manager Glen Christiansen says it is an exciting time for Golden Gate Lodge.
Looking good: Concept plans for the redevelopment.
