POSTAL SERVICES UPDATE - COVID-19 ALERT LEVEL 4 LOCKDOWN
Postal Services Update for the duration of Covid-19 Alert Level 4 Lockdown
Mail will still be delivered to post boxes
Rural delivery remains the same
For people with post boxes, sorry, no parcel pick-up because… the Post Shop will close
You can post mail in the box outside, but only things that fit into it of course
The card machine for getting petrol will remain open
These measures have been imposed by NZ Post so please do not shoot the messenger!
The Post Shop staff are at great risk of becoming a hub for community transmission so we do need to keep them safe as far as we can at this end of the supply chain.
Things may change or develop as time passes and any changes will be notified as soon as possible.

It’s terminal time of year for roosters. If your flock needs some genetic diversity I’ve plenty to choose from: red, red and black, and chocolate ripple. There’s also one white rooster; but not recommended unless you have covered yards as white chickens are falcon magnets.
Some with rosebud combs, some with hobbit feed (feathers on their legs) and all teenagers from large breeds. They are all moggie mixes with the base breeds being New Hampshire and Orpington.
Only call if you have a living home as I’ve already plenty of dead homes lined up in freezers.

GLENORCHY CLINIC - EVERY WEDNESDAY

NEW HOTEL CONSENT APPLICATION
A developer, Blackthorn Lodge GY, Douglas Rikard-Bell, has publicly notified his resource consent application to the QLDC to build a large hotel on the old hotel site west of Smithy's Garage. The application can be viewed on the QLDC edocs website under the identifier of RM191318.
The proposal substantially breaches council’s height plan which is why it requires consent.
The height of the building is one and a half times the height of the current water tank. It is 11.1 m above the ground level of the water tank.
The hotel building is almost 12 times the size of the old two story hotel.
It is very large (50m x 33m x 10.5m) higher than any existing building and will dominate the sky line of GY. It does not comply with the district plan’s prescribed height of 5.5m for visitor accommodation - it’s almost twice that and will affect views and intrude into sight lines from many places in GY. We had to comply with the height rules when we built why shouldn’t they?
It proposes to use road sidecar parking for guests and only provides 15 car parks on site when the normal requirement is 41 parks.
I believe it is out of keeping with the towns architecture in its present form and that it should comply with the district plan and the community plan and vision.
If you think so too, please submit your view to the QLDC before next Thursday, 12th March, when submissions close. The submission can be short and simple.
If you need help or further information
Please call Bruce Farmer on 0221989109.
I have asked the developer to put profile poles up so you can judge the heights yourselves but he is reluctant to do so.
