Fire rages, homes at risk

Green light for liquor store

In Brief

• By Jess Gibson

A LIQUOR store planned for

Redcliffs Village has got the

go-ahead.

The district licensing

committee released its decision

last week, which gives Rizak

Enterprises Ltd the green light to

set up an off-licence at 1/87 Main

Rd.

The committee’s decision

includes changes to Rizak

Enterprises Ltd sole director

and shareholder Juraj Singh’s

application

based on

submissions in

opposition to

the proposal.

The changes

included

labelling the

store Redcliffs

John Fox

Fine Wine and

Spirits instead of

Thirsty Liquor,

CCTV security inside

and outside the store and no

alcohol advertising outside the

building.

Its opening hours will also be

reduced from 9am-10pm to 9am-

9pm, Monday to Sunday.

A hearing was held in May

after 46 written submissions

were made in opposition to the

off-licence, with nine people

making verbal submissions.

A petition containing the

names of 97 people opposing the

store was also presented at the

hearing.

Submitters can still appeal the

decision during a 10-working

day appeal period under the Sale

and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012.

Sumner Redcliffs Anglican

assistant curate John Fox was

one of the people who made a

verbal submission.

“I am pleased that DCL

addressed some of our concerns.

We are disappointed that the

community voice wasn’t given

greater weight in the process and

we look forward to making sure

that the promises given by Mr

Singh are adhered to,” said Dr

Fox.

He said he is unsure whether

he will appeal the decision yet.

Redcliffs Residents Association

chairwoman Christine Toner

said there will be a large

number of people disappointed

about the decision but grateful

CHANGE:

Rizak

Enterprises

Ltd will move

into the

building at

1/87 Main

Rd which

is currently

occupied by

the Bloom

Room Florist.

DCL considered the views of

submitters carefully.

“It’s clear that they did

actually consider all the

objectives said and that they

have incorporated a number of

conditions to help reduce the

negative,” she said.

If an appeal is made, a rehearing

will be held. But applicants will

have to pay $517 to do it.

Counsel Peter Edgen said Mr

Singh will likely start working

on the store’s refitting after the

appeal period.

RESIDENTS’ PARKING

A parking restriction exception

scheme could be installed on

two streets in Upper Riccarton

and Ilam. The Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

will today consider approving

the scheme on Athol Tce and

Rutherglen Ave so residents

living on the street don’t have

to comply to the P120 time

limit restrictions. The scheme

allows residents in the street to

purchase a permit for a specific

vehicle. The cost of the permit

is currently $54 per year but

is subject to change due to the

permits requiring to be renewed

annually.

WATER STRATEGY

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board will meet

on Wednesday to make a

submission on the city council’s

Draft Integrated Water Strategy.

The aim of the strategy is

to develop a framework to

help manage the city’s water

resources, values and demands.

Consultation closes on July 21.

The meeting will be held at the

Te Hapua: Halswell Centre at

noon. To make a submission and

to find out more information go
