A man charged in relation to a violent incident in the city was refused bail today because the address he proposed was too close to the complainants.

Gregory William Claxton, 50, oyster opener, appeared before Judge Kevin Phillips today for an electronically monitored bail application.

Judge Phillips refused his application because the address he proposed was 750m away from the complainants.

He could re-apply for electronically monitored bail if a new address was found.

Claxton's lawyer Hugo Young said the matter would proceed to trial and the issue was one of self-defence.

Claxton faces four charges including wounding with intent to cause injury, wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, injuring with intent to injure and assault using a gardening implement as a weapon on December 2.

He was remanded in custody to February 18 for a post committal conference.
