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.

SARSHA HOPE YOGA CLASSES
Are you interested in playing Netball over the winter?
Glenorchy Women's Netball Team is taking expressions of interest for 2020.
Season starts in May through to the end of July.
Games are either on a Monday evening or Saturday and the draw is set in advance.
We would love to have as many players as possible as usually not everyone is able to make it every week.
Playing netball is very social and a great way to keep the fitness up over the colder months.
Contact Michelle Green on 027 849 7453 if you are keen to be involved.

QLDC - FINAL COLLECTION OF OLD WHEELIE BINS
Waste management will be doing a final collection of old wheelie bins that are not wanted or were missed on the last collection date.
They will not be doing a door to door pick up this time so if you have one to get rid of you can drop it off at GY motors before 2pm on friday 28th feb and they will be picked up from there. No bins will be accepted after this date.
Desperately searching for a paddock for two happy horses anywhere around Glenorchy or surrounding valleys. After suddenly losing our paddocks, we need to be out by the end of Feb we have heaps of waratahs and electric fencing also water tank on a trailer. So don't need a fancy fence..
Any ideas or suggestions more than welcome..
