A karting facility, 10-pin bowling centre and a new gym will
be established at Remarkables Park, north of Hawthorne Dr,
after resource consent was granted (subject to conditions) on
a non-notified basis.
A resource consent hearing began in Queenstown yesterday for
the proposed Mitre 10 Mega store at Frankton - despite
appeals on the original application, lodged in November 2011,
still waiting to be heard by the Court of Appeal.
A food challenge ''for the people, by the people'' will be
staged in Glenorchy this month, encouraging entrants to whip
up a wild food feast, simultaneously promoting understanding,
appreciation and sustainability of the environment.
It is a fine line creating a festive, fun atmosphere in a
tourist town such as Queenstown, but also one that is safe
and encourages personal responsibility. In the third part of
our series Booze Control: Stop and Think, Queenstown reporter
Tracey Roxburgh talks to a Queenstown Lakes District Council
staff member about how they try to find this balance.
