A Resource Consent hearing about the potential use of the historic house at 159 Victoria Road as a daycare centre has been scheduled for 3 - 5 August. A record number of submissions (578 in support and 111 in opposition) have been made. The council have appointed a panel of four commissioners who will hear the views of the applicant, council officers and and submitters. While Council's reporting officer has recommended declining the application, ultimately the decision will be made by the commissioners after hearing the evidence.
Devonport Heritage will be making a presentation in support of our submission.
