Plans for a bottle store in a largely residential part of Lower Hutt have drawn 71 written objections.

The proposal for the new bottle store at 802 High St was submitted to the Lower Hutt District Licensing Agency.

The bottle store would be open from 8am to 10pm, seven days a week.

The objections included two petitions signed by total of 24 people.

Concerns over the plan were raised by local residents and businesses.

They were unhappy the planned bottle store was near a creche and local schools, including Naenae College.

Central community committee chairwoman Sue Lafrentz said she was pleased with the response.
