Oceania Group's proposal for an $18 million redevelopment of its Green Gables retirement village in Nelson will go to a hearing next week.

The company wants to partially demolish its existing village in Bridge St, then build 13 villas around the perimeter and a three-storey building in the centre, increasing the units from 71 to 91.

Nelson City Council publicly notified the resource consent application and received 27 submissions - 26 of them opposed to the application and one neutral. The objections mostly relate to the height and bulk of the building and its effects.

Ten submitters have asked to be heard.

The hearing, before independent commissioner Rob Lieffering, will be on Monday and Tuesday at the Nelson Bridge Club in Haven Rd.
