An application has been made to open a new shop – the Lincoln Bottle Store – at 12A Gerald St, which is 96m away from Super Liquor. The opportunity to make an objection closes tomorrow, and a hearing date is yet to be set by the district licensing committee. The application has been opposed by Lincoln High School. Principal Kathy Paterson said there was already another liquor outlet close by and it was sending a poor message to students regarding drugs and alcohol. “It is just its location – if it was somewhere else in Lincoln, where it wasn’t so central to where the students are, it wouldn’t pose such a problem,” she said. Lincoln Primary School and Lincoln University both told Selwyn Times they were aware of the application and were considering a response. Lincoln Primary School previously objected to Super Liquor, and for the first four years of its establishment, the store was required to be closed during the hours its pupils were travelling home from school. Principal Vivienne Butcher said another liquor store was absolutely unnecessary. “It does seem to me to be an oversupply of liquor outlets in one small frontage,” she said. •Turn to page 6 Your local luxury Convenient Location Free Car Parking Local Luxury of Choice 70-76 Rolleston Drive, Rolleston | 9 Masefield Drive (entry from Countdown and McCauley Street) 9Round | ANZ Portabank | ASB ATM | BNZ | Coffee Culture | Corianders | Fascino Shoes | Harcourt’s | helloworld | Highgate Hair Postie | Ray White | Robert Harris | Rolleston Bakery | Rolleston Central Health | Rolleston Drycleaners Rolleston Florist and Gifts | Rolleston Haircuts | Snap Fitness | Subway | Unichem | Viva La Moda | The Warehouse | Westpac Ph 03 347 9192 Like us on Facebook rollestonsq/ Proudly managed by Colliers Real Estate Management Limited
