Spat escalates in swanky suburb

  • Wild West-style posters have been put up around one of Auckland’s swankiest suburbs in a spat between a couple and the landlord of a strip of fashionable eateries.

The scrap between Parnell residents Dean and Mary Gordon and City Construction Ltd – headed by Kevin Harvey and owner of several Parnell establishments – has been intensifying for more than two years.

Over that time the Gordons have lodged several noise control and alleged breach of consent complaints to Auckland Council over venues operating in City Construction premises.
