Vehicle hire and sale business approved

A Central Otago man can sleep well knowing his business now fits within the law.

Alexandra Mini Buses and Rail Trail Planner owner Reg Anderson applied for a resource consent to operate his business on the Alexandra-Clyde Rd, State Highway 8, to display, sell or rent caravans, camper vans and boats, rent mini buses and cars and sell a variety of rental vehicle accessories.

He was operating the business from last year but when he went to an iSite to advertise, he was told he would need to apply for resource consent to make it legal.

A decision report by the Central Otago District Council approved the consent.

The report said the number of caravans, boats and camper vans could not exceed 15 on the site and rental vehicles would need to be parked out of sight of the highway.

Bikes could not be hired but Mr Anderson said he had some to sell.

Mr Anderson said he was happy the business fitted within the law.

''It makes it a lot easier; it's good to be within the regulations,'' he said.
