Sharpridge appeal

The Sharpridge Trust has appealed part of a resource consent decision relating to a proposed four-lot subdivision in Mt Aspiring Rd.

The Environment Court is being asked to grant all three building platforms associated with the subdivision.

The Queenstown Lakes District Council granted two building platforms in its decision released on August 12.

A notice of appeal filed recently by the trust's Invercargill lawyer, Rex Chapman, of Cruickshank Pryde, says the council was wrong to assess lot two's building platform as having more than minor adverse effects on landscape, visual and amenity values.

The council was also wrong to decide it could not consider amendments to the building platform during the hearing, the document says.
