Hotel supporters still in discussions
By Chris Morris
Alternatives to a $100 million waterfront hotel in Dunedin are still being discussed as the clock ticks towards a decision deadline. However, exactly what the hotel developers’ next move will be remains a closely guarded secret after they were refused resource consent earlier this month.

Betterways Advisory Ltd has until June 26 to decide whether to appeal the decision of the Dunedin City Council’s hearings committee to decline consent for the hotel at 41 Wharf St.

Betterways director Steve Rodgers – the man fronting the hotel bid – did not want to comment on any aspect of the hotel bid yesterday, saying only the full time allowed to decide any appeal would be needed.

    Oh hey it’s 24 June, just two days away from the close of the appeal period for DCC’s decision (to decline) the proposed waterfront apartment/hotel tower building.

    Maybe ODT, in search here, already knows whether the applicant Betterways Advisory Ltd will appeal to Environment Court or not.
