Respect for the integrity of Clyde's only category 1 heritage listed building is behind a decision to drop plans for a contemporary glass façade in favour of traditional plaster.

Amendments to a resource consent application for a proposed bar and cafe within Clyde's Olivers Restaurant and Lodge complex received support from Heritage New Zealand at a Cen- tral Otago District Council hearings panel meeting in Alexandra yesterday.

Owner-applicants David and Amanda Ritchie, of Clyde, agreed to amend plans after an objection was made to the proposed glass frontage, and the corrugated iron cladding for a former garage building adjacent.

The frontage on to Sunderland St would now have a plaster finish to blend in with the existing building, a former garage, with the plan to clad it with corrugated iron also dropped.

The panel also heard a submission regarding an application from Lakeview Estate Cromwell Ltd to create eight residential allotments, and one for roading.

Gore-based surveyor Murray Fortune wanted clarification on certain issues around roading and footpath requirements.

The council has reserved its decision on both applications for 15 days.
