700 bed housing complex announced in Cromwell

Mar 3, 2016 | News

Central Otago Mayor Tony Lepper praised the vision and commitment of the developers, saying the plans would alleviate the critical shortage of seasonal worker accommodation and affordable rental accommodation in the district.

The district council has agreed to sell 7ha of industrial-zoned council land in Cemetery Rd to the developers for a multi-lot accommodation development, subject to the necessary resource consents being gained.

Mr Lepper said the developers were Queenstown-based with experience in this sort of business. They preferred to remain anonymous until resource consents were lodged.
