Booze battle: Councillor takes bottle store to High Court

From Morning Report, 8:51 am on 14 August 2019

A councillor is ramping up a fight against a bottle store in Flaxmere by taking it to the High Court.

Hastings District councillor Henare O'Keefe was among local leaders and kaumatua who opposed the renewal of Flaxmere Liquor Centre's licence.

They're disappointed that Police and the Hawke's Bay District Health board did not object to the renewal. Mr O'Keefe spoke to Corin Dann.
