Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE - By JO MCKEN­ZIE-MCLEAN

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.
