The district licensing committee declined the Liquorland application to operate a bottle store on the corner of Ferry and Aldwins Rds. Liquorland has until May 30 to appeal it. Chief executive Brendon Lawry said Liquorland was “disappointed” with the committee’s decision and was considering its options regarding an appeal. The decision came after objections by health officials, residents, police and nearby Linwood College. The application came from Steve Crotty and Michael Scott, who also own Liquorland Riccarton. They said the store would also service Ferrymead to Sumner. In its decision, the committee acknowledged the pair had more than 20 years of experience and their systems and staff training were of a high standard. But it said the seller could not control how the alcohol was consumed. •Turn to page 5 Healthy Eye Protection seeing is believing BUY TODAY $41.90 Ashburton 03 307 8949 Blenheim 03 579 5353 Fendalton 03 351 3535 Greymouth 03 768 5528 Halswell 03 322 4326 Rangiora 03 310 7355 *Offer on the purchase of selected hearing aids, valid to 29th June 2018.
