The clock is now ticking towards a decision on Dunedin's proposed $100 million waterfront hotel, after the Dunedin City Council's hearings committee decided not to request further information or consult the public again.
The committee, chaired by Cr Colin Weatherall, has been considering whether it needed further information from Betterways Advisory Ltd, which wanted to build the hotel at 41 Wharf St, before deciding the project's fate.
However, a brief statement issued late yesterday confirmed the committee did not require further information from Betterways, meaning there would be no need for a third round of public consultation.
The decision meant the hotel's resource consent hearing was officially closed, four months and two adjournments after it began in December.
The committee has until June 4 to decide the hotel's fate, after Betterways' representatives agreed to push back the statutory deadline for a decision.
