A Dunedin developer has won a battle against industrial
neighbours to convert a historic warehouse on the city's
waterfront to apartments, but not without his verbal attacks
on opponents being denounced by the consenting authority.
A top public health official was the source of information
that Dunedin punters were offered cheap drinks in exchange
for filling in a submission form on a draft local alcohol
policy, it has been revealed.
Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull is urging submitters to confirm they
will show up to draft local alcohol policy (Lap) hearings
after nearly two-thirds of those who indicated they wanted to
speak failed to appear this week.
