Liquor licences go to hearing


The Waikato District Licensing Committee will hear the application for liquor licences for The Boundary Bar and Restaurant and The Boundary Wine Shop on Friday, April 23 at Ngaruawahia.

The bar, restaurant and wine shop are in the Tamahere Village complex where applicants, The Social Group, recently opened the Forever Bound Cafe.

The applications are for the restaurant and bar to operate seven days a week from 8am to 10pm, and the bottle store to be open seven days a week 9am to 10pm.

Three objections were lodged to the applications by locals and the opportunity remains open to others to make submissions.

The notice of hearing sets out the process for filing a submission with the committee at the Waikato District Council offices in Ngaruawahia.

Any person who claims an interest in the proceedings must:
• file with this office prior to the hearing, the grounds of that interest (if not already notified)
• advise if they intend to make submissions or give evidence at the hearing
• provide six copies of a typed statement of the evidence and submissions to be tendered at the hearing for the exclusive use of the Committee
• provide additional copies to be made available to other parties at the hearing

One objector said his concern was the scale of the operation near an education hub – the nearby Playcentre, day care centre and Tamahere School.

“I’m not opposed to a family restaurant,” he said.

The Four Square, a few doors away from the restaurants, already includes a bottle store.

The hearing starts at 10.30am at WDC offices, 15 Gailileo St, Ngaruawahia.
