The company behind a controversial Cromwell subdivision has lodged an 11th hour Environment Court appeal in relation to an independent commissioners decision that stymied plans for the development.
River Terrace Developments Limited had until yesterday to appeal the decision against its 840-section development and met that deadline.

Central Otago District Council communications coordinator Maria De Cort says in a statement released this morning council had been served a notice of an appeal by River Terrace Developments in respect of the decision on Plan Change 13.

The plan change is required for the development to be given the green light.

At this stage, council planning and legal advisers have yet to analyse the appeal and the council will be working through this in the coming weeks, the statement says.

However, the council committed to defending the decision and would follow the Environment Court appeal process.

The Resource Management Act 1991 also provided for parties who submitted on the original plan change to participate in the appeal proceedings.

Meanwhile, the development is also at the centre of a Commissioner Hearing regarding resource consent scheduled to take place in Cromwell tomorrow.
