Count­down in re­source hear­ing

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

The pro­posed $17 mil­lion Aotea Count­down is mov­ing through the re­source con­sent process, but there is no date yet for when it might be built.

A spokes­woman for Count­down own­ers Pro­gres­sive En­ter­prises said the re­source con­sent ap­pli­ca­tion for the 3000 square me­tre su­per­mar­ket, on the site of the Aotea camp ground at the top of Whit­ford Brown Ave, was con­tin­u­ing.

A pri­vate plan change through the coun­cil was needed, to change the land from sub­ur­ban to com­mer­cial.

‘‘Fol­low­ing on from the public hear­ings late last year, we have made some ad­just­ments to the orig­i­nal pro­posed de­sign. They re­flect the views they ex­pressed.

‘‘We’re work­ing through th­ese changes with the coun­cil,’’ she said.

Ob­jec­tors to the su­per­mar­ket cited light­ing, traf­fic, noise and prox­im­ity of other su­per­mar­kets in their sub­mis­sions.
