They plan to build the shops on the northern side of the village and are actively seeking tenants. PLC Group spokeswoman Michelle Tait said they had a dairy that was interested in taking on a shop tenancy. “We are (also) pursuing interest for a cafe tenant on the north end of the shops.” An online listing with real estate agency Harcourts states the shops are to be 103 sq m each (or possibility of smaller floor space if required) and “would ideally suit a corner café, hairdresser, dairy and/ or associated businesses.” •Turn to page 6 We’ve been trusted to look after hundreds of properties all over Christchurch.
