proposed rest-home on Highgate was either a much-needed
amenity, or an imposing development - a hospital that should
not be allowed in a residential area, a resource consent
hearing was told yesterday.
Ryman Healthcare took its case for an $18 million rest-home
development back to a resource consent hearing yesterday, and
warned that, whatever the outcome, some sort of development
would take place on the site in Highgate, Dunedin.
It is hard not to be instantly impressed by a television show
that starts with a pair of eyeball retractors, nurses with
syringes full of bright blue liquid looming over unwilling
patients, and the main character getting shot in the stomach
in the first few minutes.
