Council revokes rehab consent - 2008-04-25
A PLANNED church-based rehabilitation centre in Papaiti Rd for male alcoholics and drug addicts no longer has resource consent.
Its consent was revoked this week after an investigation by a Wanganui District Council planning officers.
Councillor Ray Stevens said that, after a number of complaints from residents and members of the community, council planning officers had found that the original resource consent should not have been granted.
"It became clear to us that what had been written in the proposal and what the owners had been saying were two different things," Mr Stevens said.
