Residents and a neighbouring business are unhappy about the potential impact of a planned $45million hotel in Queenstown.
A subsidiary of Auckland's Safari Group Ltd has applied for resource consent for the 133-room Ramada hotel and apartment complex on the corner of Frankton Rd and Stanley St. It would be one of the landmarks on the way into the Queenstown CBD.
But the five-storey building's 17.5m height breaches both the operative (8m) and proposed district plan (15m).
In Auckland, the total number of new dwellings consented in the year ended October 2017 was 10,469. The real value of new non-residential buildings consented in Auckland in the year ended October 2017 was $2,040 million
