FOR SALE: This four-bedroom home in Mandalay Lane, Redcliffs, is open to inquiries

of more than $990,000.

VIEW: The median value of houses in Redcliffs has jumped 4.7 per cent from the same

time last year. This Moncks Spur Rd home has an asking price of $655,000.

Redcliffs house values rise

BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

House values in Redcliffs have

jumped nearly five per cent

compared to the same time last

year.

New data from property information,

analytic and service

provider, CoreLogic, show the

seaside suburb’s median value

price rose 4.7 per cent between

May 1 last year and the same

time this year.

Its median value price jumped

from $706,500, to $739,800.

That change brought Redcliffs

up alongside neighbouring

Moncks Bay, which sits at

$740,350.

Moncks Bay has not shifted

over the past year.

Clifton still sits at the top of

the list in spite of a smaller 1.7

per cent rise, bringing it’s median

value up to $828,400.

The CoreLogic statistics

measured the change in median

value of all properties in each

suburb.

That way it ensured all properties

were included, not just

those that were being sold.

CoreLogic senior research

analyst Nick Goodall said Redcliffs

saw most of its growth in

the middle of last year, after losing

a bit of value in 2014.

Meanwhile, Moncks Bay had

been “relatively flat” for the

past 18 months, he said.

Median value prices for Mt

Pleasant are now at $688,400, up

1.6 per cent, and Sumner was up

1.2 per cent to $624,650.

At the other end of the scale,

Governors Bay dropped by 1.4

per cent, from $654,950 this

time last year, to $645,850.

Mr Goodall said the bay had

seen large increases in median

value, followed by large

decreases over the past two and

a half years.

In Banks Peninsula, Akaroa

moved up from $566,450 last

year, to $590,450, while Duvauchelle

rose 1.4 per cent to

$458,800.

Lyttelton rose to $465,200, up

2.6 per cent from last year.

Median value on May 1 2016, per cent

change from May 1 2015

Redcliffs: $739,800 +4.7 per cent

Akaroa: $590,450 +4.2 per cent

Lyttelton: $465,200 +2.6 per cent

Diamond Harbour: $482,250 +2.1 per

Library designs released

BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Construction of the new Redcliffs

Library will begin next month.

The library, which will be built on

Main Rd, opposite New World, will be

a one storey building with the library,

reception, a children’s library and a

community break out space.

City council capital delivery manager

Darren Moses said the contract for the

construction had been awarded to City

Care.

“Construction is scheduled to begin

in June 2016 – the exact date will be

confirmed with the announcement of

an official ground-breaking/sod-turning

event,” he said.

Plans for the building also include a

meeting room, small kitchen and toilets.

The original library was badly

damaged in the February 2011 and

June 2011 earthquakes, and later

demolished.

Mr Moses said the city council hoped

to have the library open by the end of

the year, with construction expected to

take about five months.

He said the front of the building had

been designed to address the street

frontage, with glass frontage, a small

terrace area, seating, bike racks and

planting.

Meanwhile, Corbel Construction will

build Governors Bay’s new $700,000

community centre.

Mr Moses said there would

be action on the Cresswell Ave site this

week.

The old community centre was

demolished after sustaining damage in

the February 2011 quake.

Governors Bay resident Rosie Belton

said on first glance the plans looked

good.

“We’ve never really had a community

centre, we just had the old quaint

old building that had the pottery shed in

it.”

It is expected to take about six months

to build, and will include a community

space, a kitchen, meeting room, deck,

toilets and car parking spaces.

EXCITING: Construction of Governors Bay’s new

community centre will take about six months.

INTERSECTION HAZARD

A teenager was knocked off

his bicycle at a contentious

Ferrymead intersection last

week. He collided with a

vehicle at the St Andrews

Hill and Bridle Path Rds

intersection at about 5.50pm

on Thursday. It comes after a

city council report criticised

the new intersection’s lay out.

RECIDIVIST DRINK

DRIVER

A Sumner woman who drove

into two pedestrians knocking

them onto the rocks below

Main Rd while four-times

over the legal drink-driving

limit, was on a zero alcohol

licence. Sarah Jane Arrow,

of Sumner, appeared before

Judge Jane Farish in the

district court on Friday. The

45-year-old pleaded guilty

to drink driving causing

injury and driving contrary

to a zero alcohol licence and

was remanded on bail for

sentencing on July 26.

CLARIFICATION

News reported the Lyttelton

Timeball Station would be

This was incorrect. Heritage

New Zealand will rebuild the

Lyttelton

Primary School

principal Diana

Feary says

the school’s

merger and the

building of new

premises were

challenging and

exciting.

Lyttelton Primary School is

two years old. We are at home

at last, and we love it! Our first

two years have been a time of

challenge, turmoil, excitement

and adventure.

Challenges include building

a school culture and sense of

belonging over two sites. Our

children and staff soon became

a feature of the Lyttelton landscape

as we walked between

the town site and the hill site in

our bright orange vests to spend

time learning about each other.

Developing a shared vision

with staff who had not worked

together encouraged us to explore

quality professional learning

development opportunities.

Our staff trip to Melbourne last

July to observe collaborative

teaching and learning in seven

schools was critical in developing

the collaborative practice

evident in our learning areas.

Plans for our new school were

drawn up after community consultation

in 2013. What turmoil

when we learned at the end of

2014 that the resultant design

would be shelved and a new

architect would have new plans

completed by the end of January.

What did emerge was a design

that teachers were excited about

as they saw great potential in the

internal layout and the scope of

the learning areas.

This has been an amazing

opportunity for us to explore

and develop collaborative and

co-teaching practices as we

prepared for our new place.

Staff worked together to build

a sense of belonging guided by

restorative practice. Innovative

furnishings are a feature and

came from our inquiries. And

we determined our logo, Te

Wheke, with its characteristics

of curiosity and intelligence

a perfect embodiment of our

adventurous spirit.

We are two years old. We are

at home at last, and we love it!

•Ruth Dyson column, p18

Bay Harbour News asked its

readers what they thought

about the St Andrews Hill and

Bridle Path Rds intersection,

after a city council report

criticised its layout.

• Don Burns, of Mt

Pleasant:

Thanks for your

article, it raised issues

that I’ve been concerned

about from the day the

bridge was opened.

What I would like to

know is why the safety

audit did not pick up on the safety

issues, and why the designers

did not foresee the glaring

problems of the design?

Why are the footpaths almost

4m wide when the pedestrian

traffic is probably about 10 a

day when the vehicle traffic

is 30,000/day? I’m sure most

people would prefer four lanes, a

narrow footpath and a cycle lane.

Why didn’t the engineers

consider a merging lane coming

from St Andrews Hill Rd? As a

resident of Mt Pleasant, driving

through St Andrews Hill Rd and

Bridle Path Rd several times a day,

I have to consider drivers coming

from the east turning into Bridle

Path Rd, traffic turning right from

the bridge onto Bridle Path Rd

and vehicles on my left who either

want to turn left or right.

I do not think we need more

traffic lights, there’s already

too many around the city. I do

think people should be held to

account, this roading system

has been poorly designed and

whoever is responsible should be

explaining why this occurred.

• Denny Anker, of

Mt Pleasant:

In response to your question

about this intersection, my safety

concerns compelled me to give

up trying to cross the intersection

from St Andrews Hill Rd very

soon after it was completed.

My alternative involves the

circuitous and time-consuming

route down Cannon Hill

Crescent to Bridle Path Rd.

In spite of the inconvenience,

I would still prefer to do that

rather than attempt to use the

intersection as it currently is.

It is fortunate for me that I am

only rarely travelling here at

peak traffic times.

I will be relieved when work

on Mt Pleasant Rd allows for

uphill traffic so that I won’t have

to use this intersection at all. I

understand concerned residents/

users made submissions at the

time of construction which were

obviously ignored, as so often

happens.

• Frances and David Wall,

of Mt Pleasant

In response to your article

in Bay Harbour News on the

Bridle Path Rd/St Andrews

Hill Rd intersection, we add

our voices to those who find

it a difficult and peculiar

layout.

The main problem that we

have experienced is the right

turn from the bottom of St

Andrews Hill Rd, swinging

across two lanes to turn sharply

right into Bridle Path Rd, before

the left turn onto the Ferrymead

Bridge. It’s always a moment of

anxiety at the bottom of the hill

waiting until there is space in

the queue for the left-turn light

off Bridle Path Rd while at the

same time giving way to traffic

turning from Main Rd, and

hoping to goodness that nothing

comes swooshing down Bridle

Path Rd before you can slot into

the far (left-hand) lane.

It’s not so bad on a bicycle – if

you get caught out in the middle

(of Bridle Path Rd) there is room

to pause, but in a vehicle you

partly block the traffic, and as

for buses, it’s impossible.

A solution could be lights

at the bottom of St Andrews

Hill Rd co-ordinated with

lights further back from the

intersection on Bridle Path Rd.

MARKET ON THE MOVE

Mt Pleasant Farmers Market is

on the move. The market, which

normally runs from the Mt Pleasant

Community Centre car park,

is moving to the western end of

McCormacks Bay Reserve from

Saturday. It will move for six to

eight weeks while work on the

community centre site takes place.

It will run as usual every Saturday

from 9.30am-12.30pm.

CELEBRATION: Jackie Maurice and Sandie Chamberlain went along to

celebrate the launch of the book, and the return of the BYO Pub.

BY TANIA GREEN

Heathcote Valley residents have

celebrated the launch of a new

book, which looks at the way the

suburb has recovered from the

earthquakes.

The book, Heathcote: The

Upside, which was co-edited by

Sooze Harris and Sara Templeton,

was launched on Friday at St

Mary’s Village Hall.

It features more than 70 projects

the community got involved

with to deal with the post-quake

environment.

The celebration saw the return

of the BYO Pub, which was the

initiative of Vicar Mary Giles,

within a week of the February

2011 earthquake, to bring the

community together.

The BYO Pub was also the very

first post-quake initiative that

features in the book.

Ms Templeton said there were

between 80-100 people there to

celebrate.

“It was a fantastic community

get together and felt like the early

days of the BYO Pub - the adults

inside or on the deck chatting,

while the many children ran

around the community garden

with torches in the dark, popping

IAN MCLEOD

TEAM EFFORT: Sooze Harris and Sara Templeton co-edited Heathcote:

The Upside, which features more than 70 post-earthquake projects.

New book celebrates Heathcote stories

in occasionally for a drink or bite

to eat.”

Ms Harris said the book

was all about showcasing and

celebrating the community’s

response to the earthquakes.

“I think this is a celebration.

It’s a reminder that there is a

massive richness that can come

out of adversity as well. And it’s

not that you want it, we don’t

want earthquakes in Christchurch,

but they’re not all bad,

there’s good that comes too.”

The book is available for purchase,

with all proceeds going

back into the community.

AKAROA CONSULTATION

Consultation on how to dispose of

treated wastewater when Akaroa

Wastewater Treatment Plant opens

in 2020 has been extended due

to strong public interest. Public

consultation was due to close on

Friday but will now continue until

June 12. The city council will

build a new treatment plant on Old

Coach Rd, a new pump station at

Childrens Bay and upgrade the

existing pipes and watermains.

SUMNER SOD TURNING PLAN

A joint working group has been

meeting to plan the sod turning for

the new Sumner library, museum

and community facility. The group

hopes to hold the sod turning in

the first week of term three at the

end of July, but a set date will be

confirmed. The tender for the construction

of the facility, to be built

on the corner of Wakefield Ave and

Ben Atkinson

Sumner chef’s mission: To

Sumner’s Ben Atkinson is on a mission to feed

hungry school children across Canterbury with his initiative,

Fill Their Lunchbox. Bridget Rutherford spoke

to him about taking it full-time, how free lunches can

help lower truancy rates, and having to leave Sumner

So Ben, can you tell me a bit

about Fill Their Lunchbox,

how did it all begin?

So pretty much, it was initially

started to get food into the

bellies of hungry kids. The real

goal is to give kids an equal opportunity

to learn in school and

be able to go on and get a higher

education. I got into it about

February last year. I had seen in

the news there were a lot of kids

going to school without food, or

getting the wrong food. I thought

as a chef this is something I

could get out and assist with.

So together with Joe’s Garage

Sumner, we made the food one

night a week, and delivered to

three schools the next day.

How did you decide what

schools to start out with?

I just looked for decile one and

two schools in the east. I contacted

Wainoni School, Aranui

Primary, Te Waka Unua and

Linwood Ave schools. I didn’t

hear back from Wainoni, but I

heard from the other three and so

decided to start with them. We

just knew there was a bit of an

issue in the east.

So you were working at Joe’s

Garage Sumner at the time?

Yeah, so it started with the old

owners who sold up in December.

But the new owners carried

on with it. We just made a plan

to make sandwiches, scones,

protein balls and things like that,

and we delivered them on big

trays to the three schools every

Tuesday.

So I hear you are moving on

from Joe’s Garage to take this

on full time?

Yeah, so I let them know

in February that I would be

leaving. I told them I had the

intention of taking this full time,

and I just finished up last week.

I’d been there for three years.

I’m getting a kitchen built out in

Rangiora, so we will be living

out there. It’s a lot cheaper and

it’s in the right zone that we can

operate out of.

Who else is part of the team?

Do you have a leaky home?

The Financial Assistance Package, which

helps people with a contribution to repair

leaky homes, is closing to new claims on

23 July 2016.

To give time for an assessment to be

undertaken, applications should be with

MBIE by 27 June 2016.

Go to building.govt.nz/FAP for

more information or to apply for

financial assistance.

So my main partner, Alicia

Renee, worked with me at Joe’s,

and she will finish there this

week. She’s basically going to

be head chef in charge of the

menus and the food side of

things. I’ve been operating as a

head chef for so long but there

are so many things behind the

scenes that need to be done, so

I’ll be focusing on those.

Were you a bit sad to be

leaving Joe’s after so long?

Yeah, a lot of staff have

moved on, but I’ll miss a lot of

our regulars - you really build

relationships with some of them.

It’s a bit sad to know you’re not

going to see them every day.

And you’ve been living in

Sumner, will you miss the seaside

suburb?

I’ve been flatting here. It’s sad

moving. Sumner reminds me a

bit of my home-town in Nelson

because it’s close to the beach,

feed hungry school kids

Monday to Friday, with a buy

one, gift one policy. So to pay

our staff and cover the cost of

food, we would need to sell 100

adult lunches and donate 100

lunches. That way the public

funds it. They also get delivered.

When will it kick off full

time?

Not entirely sure when it

will start, we’re waiting on the

kitchen to be built. We need to

fundraise the last $60,000 to get

that going, and we need to buy a

couple of vans and a bit of working

capital.

And you had a lot of support

for the initiative on the

PledgeMe page didn’t you?

Yeah, we made around

$30,000. It was incredible, we

got over 460 people touching

on our campaign. I didn’t know

how people would react initially,

but we got heaps of support, it

was absolutely outrageous.

What was it like delivering

to the kids at the various

schools?

Well typically we just take it

into the office in class time, so

we never really had a lot to do

with the kids. But they do send

a lot of thank you letters so that

was pretty cool.

Were there any cases that

stuck out to you?

Not any special cases that

were noted to be really bad, the

school protects the privacy of the

children and families. We’ve had

contact from a few parents who

have said ‘I can only give my

kids the bare minimum’, so it

takes a bit of stress off them. We

did hear that the truancy rates

have dropped, some parents can

be ashamed if they can’t send

their kids to school with lunch,

so they might not send them. So

with lunch being delivered, we

were told the truancy rates had

dropped. And we’ve heard the

focus is better in class.

Will you continue delivering

to the three schools you started

with?

We will continue with those

schools. We had a good relationship

with them and were pretty

close. The only thing that will be

change is with Aranui Primary,

because they are merging with

other schools to form a super

school. So not sure how we will

do that yet.

And I hear your nickname

is Diggy, how did that come

about?

Um, my old friends made up a

song about me. There’s no real

significance but it just caught on.

Where did you work before

Joe’s Garage?

Before that I was at the university

for about a year at a café

there. As soon as I finished high

school I decided to study music

for a while in Christchurch. A

few of my friends were coming

down here. I found the youth

culture in Nelson wasn’t very

fostering. I played guitar and a

bit of bass guitar, and I played

forms of death metal. I spent two

years studying then I decided

to go work full time, I went and

started training to be a chef.

Had you always been a bit of

a whizz in the kitchen?

I was actually banned from

cooking as a child (laughs). I

almost set the kitchen on fire

cooking popcorn when I was 11

or 12. But I basically broke it

down to what would make me

happy. I like creative things, and

this gave me the opportunity to

be creative and make things, and

to experiment. It’s good feeding

people and providing a place

to relax. I have friend who is a

builder. And he said to me, ‘what

do you do for society? I make

people’s houses, I’m contributing’.

And I said well I may just

be a cook, but we provide people

with a place to relax, take time

and meet people.

Did you start your time there

as head chef? Or did you work

your way up?

I went in as head chef. The

owner had only just taken over.

I’m not the best chef, but I’ve

got a good idea of how to run a

kitchen.

Do you have a speciality

dish?

Well I guess ice cream. I ran a

little beach side business selling

ice cream at Corsair Bay. So I

made my own ice cream and

tried lots of crazy flavours.

And what about you, what

do you like to do in your spare

time?

Well, having weekends free is

a rare thing for me after being

in the hospitality industry. But I

play basketball in a social mixed

league every week. We’ve had

the same team for about four

years.

So how do you feel about

starting Fill Their Lunchbox?

It’s exciting and nerve wracking.

The whole throwing your

career away makes me a bit

nervous. Until we’re up and running

we will be operating on a

pretty low budget, and with staff

to pay and no money coming

in things will be tight. We have

three staff, including me, and

we are looking to hire another

delivery driver. But nothing’s

easy, if you’re not determined,

you won’t get anywhere.

Fire brigade’s new ute

already in service

BRIDGET RUTHERFORD

Sumner Volunteer Fire Brigade

has a brand new four-wheel drive

assist vehicle, which has already

been to five call-outs, including a

large scrub fire.

The brigade’s 1960s Jeep

broke down last year, and it had

been using its large fire truck to

go to medical call-outs, which

slowed down response times.

It managed to fundraise about

$35,000 to go towards a new

twin cab Toyota Hilux, which arrived

about two weeks ago.

Although it still needs to be

painted fire engine red, and fitted

out with equipment, sirens

and lights, it has already been to

three medical call-outs, one false

alarm, and a scrub fire.

Deputy chief fire officer Darren

Wright said it was used to

carry gear and get more people

to the scrub fire between Sumner

and Taylors Mistake on April 26.

“It’s already having the impact

that we wanted it to have,” he

said.

“We just got more people to

the call, it was a big fire and it

allowed us to get nine personnel

there pretty much at the same

time, compared to about four or

Mr Wright said the brigade

wanted to thank the local groups

and families who had generously

donated money needed to buy

the new vehicle.

He said a couple of families,

who wanted to remain anonymous,

had made large donations.

The brigade received $5000

from Sumner Redcliffs RSA

Welfare Fund and $2500 from

the SJ Charitable Trust. Rata

Foundation had also made a donation

which would go towards

the kit-out of the vehicle, he said.

It can be difficult for firefighters

to find places with enough stairs

to train for the gruelling Sky

But Lyttelton firefighters came

up with an interesting way to train

for this month’s event – walking

and running up the escalators at

Westfield Riccarton in their gear

after closing time.

The team spent hours walking

which were turned on and going

Banks Peninsula Water Zone Committee – A note from the chair

Steve Lowndes,

Chair of the Banks

Peninsula Water

Zone Committee

Climate change is no longer a matter of

conjecture or projection, it is a matter of record.

Every month is hotter than historical averages and every year is hotter than the

last. All over the world climate change is manifest in extreme weather patterns,

the displacement of populations and the decrease in the planet’s ability to

absorb emissions.

Last year, governments from around the world met in Paris and formally

acknowledged that the global situation is dire. National governments, however,

are slow to react in any meaningful way so it will be up to local communities to

take the initiative.

Flash flooding, drought, fire, high winds, sea level rise and the spread

of pests are all events which result from accelerated climate change.

Banks Peninsula is exposed to all of these, but perhaps the most significant weather event we

battle is drought.

Currently the Peninsula is very dry. We need to be vigilant of the potential for wild fires and the

way we use our limited water resources.

Water is a very limited resource on Banks Peninsula.

We are not connected to the aquifers of the Canterbury Plains which are recharged by the high

rainfall on the foothills and Alps. The small streams running down each valley are essentially only

recharged by local rainfall.

As a community we must begin to place a much greater importance on how we manage our water.

There are simple things we can do such as checking for leaky pipes, installing rainwater tanks, or

considering whether home appliances can be replaced with more water efficient appliances when

they reach their use by date.

We should think hard about our water use, including the amount we waste.

The Banks Peninsula Water Zone Committee is keen to work with local landowners and

community groups to improve water quantity, quality and biodiversity. Funds are available for

biodiversity projects such as such as riparian planting and protection of wetland and salt marsh

vegetation. Please contact Helen Greendep (contact 027 225 6419) if you have a project in mind.

Next Banks Peninsula Water Zone Committee meeting

Tuesday 24 May 2016, 4–6pm, Environment Canterbury Office, 200 Tuam Street

Lincoln University has planted 1350 native trees as part of a three-year wastewater disposal trial.

Why do we even have “waste water” when the Peninsula is so dry?

Currently, Lincoln University is conducting a trial in Duvauchelle using treated wastewater to grow

native plants.

Previous studies have shown that some New Zealand native species not only thrive on soils receiving

treated wastewater, but kill bacteria and reduce the leaching of contaminants.

In July 2015, the university began a three-year trial to determine whether manuka, kanuka, and other

native species have potential for the full-scale land disposal of treated wastewater. The intent is to

ultimately design effluent systems using NZ native vegetation for wastewater disposal.

They planted 1350 native trees, divided into 27 blocks of three different vegetation types. Twelve of the

27 blocks are receiving treated municipal wastewater at a rate of 500 mm during the growing season,

a similar rate to that used on an irrigated dairy farm in Canterbury. Wastewater irrigation started in

January 2016.

You can check the trial out in Pipers Road.

Busy bodies in the garden

Over the past few months an enthusiastic group of Sumner School pupils have been developing

their school garden. The pupils have been planting seeds of herbs, vegetables and annuals for

early spring planting that they will be able to sell to parents to continue to fund their garden. They

have been very fortunate to receive fruit tree donations from Shane Lawton from SBJ Ltd and

donations from Mitre 10 Mega Ferrymead of some children’s gloves, trowels, a garden hose and a

Scavenger hunt

and Maori culture

Diamond Harbour School’s year 4 and 5 pupils went on an

adventure to Onuku Marae in Akaroa, with a fun scavenger

hunt on the way. Pupils had to open envelopes which told them

where to go and what to do at the different stops. When they

reached Akaroa, they stopped to have lunch and played games

before carrying on to the marae. Many of the pupils had not

been to a marae before. They were welcomed with a powhiri,

and later played traditional Maori games. The pupils also got to

learn how to weave flax, learned about Maori culture, and were

later farewelled with a poroporoaki.

Sumner store offers

“recycling at its finest”

ShoPPing For your winter wardrobe?

Then why not pop into Time & Time Again

in Sumner. This fascinating shop is always

full of surprises – with an ever-changing

selection of pre-loved clothing for men,

women and children as well as end-of-line,

brand-new designer clothing from new

Zealand labels iVYBLU and White Chalk.

Business owner Ali, who is celebrating the

one-year anniversary since she took over

on May 18, 2015, says she has made a few

changes to the shop.

“We have a much bigger range now,

with sizes from 4-24, and all the preloved

clothing is of excellent quality. We

have everything from designer brands

to everyday gear and accessories. i call it

‘recycling at its finest’.”

Time & Time Again is always accepting

stock, Ali says. There is a six-week turnover,

and if items are not sold within that time,

they are either returned to the owner or

donated to charity.

“We support St Vincent de Paul and Dress

For Success, which is a charity that helps

women who need to be dressed well to

apply for jobs.”

The income from the sale of clothing

is split 50/50 between the owner of the

clothing and Time & Time Again. People

supplying the shop are not just from

Christchurch; they come from as far afield

as Auckland, Blenheim and the West Coast,

so customers can always find something

different on the racks.

“The atmosphere is very relaxed and we

like our customers to have fun while they’re

shopping – there’s no pressure to buy,” Ali

says.

She and her assistant Mitch see

themselves as Sumner’s answer to Trinny

and Susannah.

“We like to play dress-ups with our

customers who are looking for a change of

style and we will give our honest opinion

if they want it. And we want to thank

customers for all their wonderful support

and business over our first 12 months,” Ali

says.

Time & Time Again also supports the

local community. For example, they held

a garage sale last year to fundraise for the

Sumner Volunteer Fire Brigade’s new fire

truck, which is due to arrive in the next

couple of weeks.

Time & Time Again, in the Village Mall,

Sumner, is open 10am-5pm seven days a

week, with a late night on Thursday, and

also sells through Facebook or

Every bit of progress

should be celebrated

Port Hills

Labour MP

Ruth Dyson

says the

rebuilding of

community

facilities should

be equal across

different

communities:

Everywhere

you turn, there are signs of new

life – some just budding – like

the sign notifying the “soon to

start” work on the construction

of the Heathcote Valley

Community Centre and Library,

and the Lyttelton library while

others are in full bloom – such

as the magnificent Sumner Surf

Life Saving Club.

Every bit of progress

should be celebrated and

often represent very long

periods of insurance haggles,

fundraising, planning and sheer

hard work. Much of this work

is undertaken by volunteers

backed by generous donors

and innovative fundraising (the

‘Strictly Sumner’ amazing effort

not the only one but certainly

the most glamorous!). And of

course, many of the facilities are

being rebuilt by the city council,

often with additional local or

benefactor funding.

Two things are important to

me as we watch this progress.

The first is that we should do

everything we can to ensure

that there is equity between

communities. We know that

some parts of the city were hit

much harder than others.

That must be a factor in the

consideration of priorities,

particularly in timetables.

Replacement of new facilities

should go into the areas which

have been left with little,

otherwise they will find it very

hard to retain their population

and the residents who do stay

will be pretty demoralised.

Neither of those are good

outcomes.

The second important point is

that the community should have

a say in the shape, size, function

of replacement community

facilities.

If this happens, we are more

likely to get a facility which is

genuinely fit for purpose and

which excites the community.

If it is imposed, it will likely

be a mismatch and cause

puzzlement or frustration.

Again, not good outcomes!

I have seen some weak

community engagement and

I have seen some excellent

engagement.

We are lively, passionate,

committed communities. Let’s

tap into the talent and ideas of

local people as we build our city

for the future.

The transport agency

has decided it could

lower the speed

limit through Little

River from 70km/h to

60km/h, but not to

50km/h as residents

had requested. Last

week Bay Harbour

News asked its readers

whether people

thought 60km/h was

low enough:

Lisa Ashfield (mother

who is too scared

to let her kids Evie, 8,

and Charlie, 6, of Little

River, cross this road to

get an ice cream) – In

my opinion 60km/h

isn’t low enough.

I work on the main

street and my office

door is open right to

the street so I see and

hear it all.

I have witnessed

huge trucks with trailers

on, blasting through

here, overtaking cars

that are doing the

current speed limit, or

perhaps a little lower,

on a busy summer day

when both sides of the

road are full of parked

cars.

I have seen and heard

the speed that cars

constantly do through

here any time of day

or night. When the

limit’s 70km/h people

go 80km/h. When the

limit’s 60km/h people

do 70km/h. 70km/h

is simply too fast for

the village, especially

when it’s busy. So

reducing it to 60km/h

would make a scrap of

difference.

Tourists hurtle

through here in their

hoards - oblivious they

are passing through a

lovely populated little

town, going too fast,

just focused on getting

to their destination –

Akaroa. Folk don’t

often know we’re here,

so they’re not thinking

to be watchful of

pedestrians, especially

not children.

The place is full of

motorbikes in the

weekends, visiting the

cafe, and sometimes

I’d estimate there to be

at least 50 bikes at any

one time. Then add the

cars to that.

In the summer

months it is extremely

busy and a very dangerous

road to try and

cross at these times.

CONCERNED: Lisa Ashfield is not the only one who

is concerned about the speed limit. Residents Holly

and Lucia Liberona (left), Marcus Puentener, Gabe

Calcott, Paul Bradford holding Ayla, Laurie Williams

holding Callen and Sharon McIver also want it lowered

to 50km/h.

Locals of the peninsula,

who travel

through each day get

complacent and are

often the worst culprits

at speeding through

the village in a hurry,

racing to get ahead of

the campers and farm

vehicles. I don’t understand

why, in three

years of living here,

that I’ve only once seen

a police car sitting on

the street checking the

speeds.

The local children

have paved a common

route each day after

school from the library

on one side of the road,

to the store for an ice

cream or lollies afterwards

on the opposite

side, and there isn’t

even a zebra crossing.

There isn’t even one

outside our school and

we don’t even have

a school zone speed

limit.

We need this road to

be safe for our population,

and any visitors,

before there’s a tragedy.

There have already

been near misses, and

there has been the

death of people’s pets

hit by cars.

Please help us to

reduce our speed limit.

We can’t think for

the life of us why this

would be such a difficult

thing to achieve.

Just down the road in

Cooptown the speed

limit is reduced from

a 100km/h zone to

70km/h – and there are

no businesses.

No library, no

shops, no school, only

houses, and very few

pedestrians crossing

the road.

EQC UPDATE KEEPING YOU INFORMED | MAY 2016

EQC’s approach to

its repair obligations

Land settlements update

Keith Land, EQC Head of Canterbury Land Settlement

EQC is now working on the remaining eleven percent of

green zone properties and red zone properties (not owned

by the Crown), which still need their land claims resolved.

“From a total of 73,000 such properties which had land claims,

there are now around 8,000 where the land claims still need to

be settled by EQC,” says EQC Head of Canterbury Land

Settlement, Keith Land.

This year EQC is aiming to complete these remaining land

damage settlements, with the majority of work focusing on

claims for Increased Liquefaction Vulnerability (ILV) and

Increased Flooding Vulnerability (IFV) land damage.

As of early May, 60 percent of potential Increased Flooding

Vulnerability (IFV) customers (9,600) have had their IFV claims

resolved. This also includes any outstanding visible land

damage settlements these customers may have.

Together with resolving remaining IFV claims, the priority now

is on settlements for the around 4,400 ILV customers. Some

properties have both ILV and IFV land damage.

“We’re on track to start making the first payments to ILV

customers from late June,” says Mr Land.

Settlements for ILV land damage will be made by cash payment,

in line with how IFV and other types of land damage from the

2010-2011 Canterbury earthquakes have been settled to date.

ILV settlements will be based on one of two approaches: repair

cost, or reduction in market value of the property due to ILV land

damage – also called Diminution of Value (DOV). Information on

ILV, and details of these settlement approaches, including

answers to a number of questions, can be found on the EQC

website at www.eqc.govt.nz/ILV

ILV land damage settlements on the basis of DOV

EQC expects that most ILV properties will be settled solely on the

basis of DOV. This is because, where the house has remained in

place after the earthquakes (as many have), there will not

generally be repair methods available to repair ILV damage on the

property. The first payments made in late June will be to those

customers with ILV land damage whose settlements are based on

DOV. “The ILV DOV approach and settlement amounts will be

similar to how we’ve been handling IFV claims,” says Mr Land.

Claim

deadline

looming

Christchurch residents whose

homes suffered damage

in the 29 February 2016

earthquake still have time

to lodge a claim with EQC.

The deadline for lodging

a claim is 30 May 2016.

This deadline does not stop

you from lodging a new claim

with EQC if your dwelling

incurs new damage as part

of recent or future quakes.

EQC encourages anyone

whose home suffered

damage in this event to make

a claim even if the damage

appears minor.

“We’ve been working closely with customer advocates groups to

make sure the settlement communications our customers receive

is clear and helps them understand our decision.”

ILV land damage settlements

on the basis of repair cost

Work is underway to determine the settlements for ILV

customers whose payments can be based on repair cost.

“We are planning to start contacting customers in early June

who, based on the information we have to date, have the

opportunity to complete a ground repair on their property to

address the ILV land damage,” says Mr Land. Before the repair

cost settlements can be made, EQC will be working closely with

these customers to understand their plans for rebuilding on the

site and whether the plans include any ground repair.

“We will have a dedicated team case managing these customers

to ensure EQC has a good understanding of their situation and

they are kept up-to-date with their claim’s status,” says Mr Land.

Land assessments and settlements in general

“We have identified different types of land damage – visible land

damage, IFV and ILV. For each type of land damage, we use a

range of assessment processes that allow the appropriate

settlement for each customer and are consistent with the

legislation in place.

“Each property is different and is assessed on a case-by-case

basis, so one customer’s settlement is not indicative of

another’s,” says Mr Land.

For more information on the approach to land claims and their

settlement, visit www.eqc.govt.nz/land.

“We also have an open and robust review process in place for

those customers who want us to review our decisions on

whether their insured land has damage and/or the settlement

amount paid,” says Mr Land.

Check out www.eqc.govt.nz/landreview for more information

on land settlement review.

Land settlements for red zone properties

EQC is assessing all residential land claims across Canterbury

in a consistent way – whether they are green zone properties or

red zone properties.

The Government’s decisions related to the red zone are separate

from EQC’s decisions related to the assessment and settlement

of land damage claims.

As agreed with CERA and now Land Information New Zealand

(LINZ), EQC’s priority continues to be to resolve land damage

claims for properties in the green zone and those in the red

zone, whose owners did not accept a Crown offer.

“However, we continue to work with LINZ, which has taken over

management of the around 7,000 Crown owned red zone

properties. We expect to agree a settlement approach with LINZ

in the second half of 2016, applying the same policies EQC has

used to settle green zone claims,” says Mr Land.

EQC has so far received just

over 10,500 building, contents

and land claims since the first

quake on Valentine’s Day.

People can lodge claims

with EQC online at www.eqc.

govt.nz/claims via email on

info@eqc.govt.nz or by calling

0800 DAMAGE (0800 326 243).

The EQC call centre is open

7am to 9pm Monday to Friday

and 8am to 6pm on Saturdays.

There has been some discussion about how the Earthquake

Commission meets its obligations under the Earthquake Commission

Act (EQC Act) following the release of the Joint Statement agreed

with a group of Canterbury homeowners, the EQC Action Group.

Information on what the joint statement means for customers

and how customers can request a review of their claim can be found

at www.eqc.govt.nz

EQC acknowledges that every homeowner affected by earthquake damage

faces a set of circumstances specific to their property and that a different repair

strategy is likely to be applied in each case. That said, EQC uses some general

principles when making its decisions. EQC insures an earthquake-damaged

house for its replacement value up to a certain cap, usually $115,000 including

GST, according to the EQC Act. Given there has been some confusion about

what “replacement value” means, it’s worth having a close look at the

definition in the EQC Act, which includes three main elements:

1. the costs which would be reasonably incurred

2. in reinstating the building to a condition substantially the same as but not

better or more extensive than its condition when new

3. modified as necessary to comply with any applicable laws.

Some of the commentary following the Joint Statement focused on the

concept of “when new”, which refers to when the house was new. While

“when new” is one element, EQC needs to take into account each of the

three main elements, when meeting its obligations under the Act. For

instance, the concept of when new needs to be seen in light of complying

with any applicable laws.

How ‘replacement value’ may apply in practice

Example 1

Following an earthquake, a brick chimney falls through the corrugated iron

roof of a 1900s-era villa.

The falling chimney smashes through the ceiling, shattering a ceramic light

fitting that was already badly deteriorated prior to the earthquake.

To repair the roof, the corrugated iron in the area where the chimney fell

would be replaced with new corrugated iron. If corrugated iron of the same

type as the damaged iron is not available because it is no longer

manufactured, the new corrugated iron would be a modern product, which

matches as closely as possible the profile of the damaged corrugated iron.

In some situations, the new corrugated iron may be coloured steel or

the corrugated iron may need to be repainted to match the colour of the

existing roof.

EQC may also need to reinstate or replace non-damaged parts of the roof

that need to be removed in order to repair the earthquake damage, such as

the iron ridging on the roof peak.

The repair work to the roof would be carried out to ensure the work meets

applicable laws such as the performance standards in the Building Code.

The light fitting would be replaced. If the existing wiring couldn’t be safely

reconnected to the light fitting then an Electrical Safety Inspection would be

required. The wiring would need replacing to a point where the electrician

determines it can safely be reconnected, and to meet any legal requirements

for that work.

Example 2

An earthquake damages the so-called ‘rubble foundations’ a home is built

on. If the foundation can be repaired so that the foundation is in a condition

substantially the same as when it was new and the repair work complies with

applicable laws, the foundation repair will meet the “replacement value”

standard. In other cases, to meet the standard of applicable laws, part or

all of the foundation may need to be replaced. EQC considers each repair

strategy based on the facts specific to each home. Individual foundation

repairs are dependent on the nature of the foundation, the type of

earthquake damage suffered and the make-up of the concrete.

Customers can request a review

If any customer believes EQC has missed earthquake damage to their home,

disagrees with the repair strategy EQC has proposed, or believes their

settlement amount is not correct, they can use EQC’s standard processes to

request a review of their individual claim on 0800 DAMAGE (0800 326 243)

or email info@eqc.govt.nz

Prolonged toxic algae

bloom in Lake Forsyth

Steve Lowndes,

Banks

Peninsula Zone

Committee

chairman, gives

his view on

Lake Forsyth

The health of Lake Forsyth

or Te Roto o Wairewa is near

and dear to me. I have lived at

Birdlings Flat (Poranui) for the

last 15 years and my home looks

out to the lake. My attachment

to the lake is strong. I love her

different moods and interplay

with the surrounding hills, sea

and sky.

It saddens me that the lake is

sick. This summer we have had

one of the most prolonged toxic

algae blooms for years.

We cannot blame intensive

dairying, large scale irrigation or

industrial discharges as there are

none in the catchment. Unfortunately,

much of the blame lies

with early timber millers who

logged the catchment to provide

timber to build Christchurch

and in the process released large

quantities of phosphorous-rich

sediment that ended up in the

lake. Phosphorus is a natural

element of the volcanic soils of

Banks Peninsula.

Toxic algae blooms are not

new. The first recorded bloom

was in the late 1800s when a

rowing regatta was cancelled

because of algae in the lake.

The sediment that came down

the catchment in the 1860s is

still in the lake. The rate of accumulation

has decreased as the

hill healed over the years but

still large amounts of sediment

come into the lake during flood

events.

It is phosphorous that feeds

the annual toxic algae blooms

and unfortunately phosphorous

is recycled each year through the

algae back into the sediment on

the lake floor then back through

next year’s algae bloom. We

could still be recycling phosphorous

from 1860s.

Why is it so bad this year?

Well we don’t really know as

in spite of all the research that

has been undertaken over the

years we still don’t understand

the interplay between a number

of factors. We know phosphorus

is a limiting factor but don’t

know the role of oxygen, nitrate,

ammonia levels, salt concentrations,

temperature or plankton

grazers and micronutrients.

We think this year’s algae

bloom may be related to low

lake levels. The low rainfall

during 2015 winter meant that

the level of the lake as it entered

the summer period was lower

than it has been for the last four

to five years. We also think the

input of phosphorous laden

sediment during the three major

floods in the autumn of 2014

may have something to do with

it.

What is being done?

The Wairewa rūnanga has led

much of the recent work to clean

up the lake and has a goal to

restore it to a healthy source of

food (mahinga kai). The rūnanga

has led various research and

feasibility studies with Landcare

Research, Lincoln and Canterbury

University and NIWA.

The rūnanga has also been

working with Christchurch City

Council to trial a new lake opening.

This new opening provides

greater control on when and how

long the lake stays open to the

sea and therefore greater control

on the lake level. This month a

joint consent to continue to use

the pilot opening was granted

to the rūnanga and the Christchurch

City Council for a period

of 35 years.

The Banks Peninsula Zone

Committee, after working with

the community and technical

experts, recommended in 2014

that, given the current state of

knowledge it was best to focus

attention on reducing further

sediment input into the lake and

understand better how the lake

works before trying to remove

and dispose of 800 Olympic-size

swimming pools of accumulated

sediment.

As a consequence of these

recommendations Environment

Canterbury has proposed

changes to the Land and Water

Regional Plan which requires

stricter controls on stock access

to the river banks on the valley

floor where most of the sediment

comes from. The hearing for

Plan Change 6 (Wairewa) was

completed a couple of weeks

ago.

We are hoping to see these

provisions come into effect

later in the year. The zone

committee is also supporting

the development of a sediment

management work programme

and plan a pilot project to

help landowners manage and

remediate their stream banks.

ECan has also improved its

monitoring of the lake so real

time data on a variety of water

quality parameters are collected

continuously. This will give us a

much better idea of how the lake

conditions change throughout

the year and help us to design

future actions that don’t cause

bigger problems than the ones

we are trying to fix.

The community is also working

hard to improve management

of the main rivers to mitigate

the effects of flood events

but also manage them to reduce

sediment discharges. Stock are

already being fenced out of the

rivers and the Little River community

nursery provides native

plants and advice on riparian

planting.

There is a fine line between

management of the rivers for

flood mitigation and reducing

sediment discharges, but I am

confident everyone is aware of

these dual goals and are taking

both into account before taking

action.

Both the rūnanga and the zone

committee have been thinking

about the next big action to take.

Both, however, are cautious

about knee jerk reactions and

want to ensure proposals are

based on good science and

will work. Currently the zone

committee, with the help of

ECan, are trying to determine

whether a sediment retention

basin would intercept sediment

during flood events before it

reaches the lake. Another idea

is to use wetland vegetation to

take up phosphorous that could

be harvested and removed from

the lake.

What is the future?

In spite of a considerable

amount of energy and

action from individuals and

organisations alike, the lake has

a mind of her own. We thought

the new lake opening had made

a difference and we’d seen

improvements in the indicators

such as the tropic level index

and the presence of macrophytes

in the lake last summer.

But this year, in spite of our

best efforts we’ve had the algae

bloom.

Unfortunately, there is no

quick fix and no one to blame.

It will take time. There will

be setbacks and the effects of

climate change has just made the

job harder. But I am confident

that with everyone doing their

bit, Te Roto o Wairewa will once

again be a source of food that

we are proud of and enjoy.

Mixed success for waka paddlers

Lyttelton waka paddlers have

become world champions following

a storming performance in the

Sunshine Coast.

Based out of the Naval Point

Club Lyttelton, Te Waka Pounamu’s

top team Aoraki Matatu

won gold in the 12-man 1500m

race.

They also won silver in both

the six-man 1000m, and six-man

500m races at the recent world

elite sprint championships in

Australia.

Aoraki Matatu won the 12-man

event, after combining the force

of their six-man team with Pineula,

a team from South Auckland.

The Lyttelton team approached

Pineula after they beat them at the

national competition, offering to

bring them to the world championships.

The Auckland side

accepted their offer.

Pineula split with Aoraki

Matatu for the six-man 1000m

event, where teams row four

250m lengths.

Team spokesman Ross Gilray

said the team thought they had

won, when they pipped Tahiti in

the final length.

“We thought we had won it . .

. but during one of our turns, the

buoy had moved into a different

lane and it wasn’t picked up by

anyone,” he said.

The race had to be started

again, and Aoraki Matatu

was beaten by Tahiti in the

second attempt.

“It cost us in the end, we were

pretty pleased, but silver is not

quite gold,” Gilray said.

After the controversy of the

1000m event, the side took to the

water for the final six-man 500m

sprint. Gilray said the team had

been improving since nationals,

but couldn’t put it all together

against a stronger Tahiti.

“We went down to Tahiti, who

had an eight-time world champion

in their boat . . . at the end

of the tournament (Tahiti) were

happy to be around us and we

swapped shirts and things,” he

said.

The team arrived in Christchurch

yesterday, and plan to

spend time with their families

before turning their focus to the

next world championships in

Tahiti in two years’ time.

WORLD CHAMPIONS: Aoraki Matatu are world champs after their performance in the 12-man 1500m

event.

UNLUCKY: The team were unfortunate to have to re-do a race which they initially won, and finished

second.

Transitioning skincare

through the seasons

Skincare expert and facialist Clemency Alice has a passion for beauty and organic

skincare. Recently travelling to Paris and Australia to further her knowledge, she

shares her secrets.

the tRAnSition from summer to

autumn can have a major impact on your

skin’s overall condition and appearance. if

the new season catches you unaware and

unprepared, your skin can become very

dry, extremely sensitive, lacklustre and

more susceptible to breakouts. This is due

to the change in oil flow – which was on

an all-time high during summer – and the

vitality of the ‘skin glow’ waning as cooler

temperatures plummet, constricting

blood vessels. here’s what you need to

know to ensure your skin stays prepped

and primped for the change of season.

PReSeRVe youR liPid BARRieR

if you remove this protective skin barrier

through more aggressive methods of overcleansing

and over-exfoliating, then the

skin cells aren’t prepared and your skin

becomes more vulnerable to the extreme

temperatures and external elements of

wind, sun and rain. A way to protect

and maintain hydration in your skin is

through spritzing your face after cleansing

with a floral facial mist then locking the

moisture in with your favourite facial oil

or moisturiser.

SwitCh moiStuRiSeRS

opt for a creamier, rich texture in

your moisturiser that has antioxidant,

super skin-boosting ingredients. Select

moisturisers that contain hyaluronic acid

(skin plumping and hydrating), vitamin

C (antioxidant and uV-protecting

properties), shea butter (moisturising

and protecting), and rose (softening,

anti-inflammatory, hydrating). And for

those with oilier skins, opt for a balancing

facial oil with lavender (restorative

and calming) and jojoba (balancing to

the acid mantle, protecting and antiinflammatory).

PRoteCt youR Skin

Just because summer is a distant dream,

keep applying a chemical-free SPF daily,

and opt for a seperate sun-care product

with a minimum of SPF30 rather than

relying on sun protection from your

foundation.

What’s the one thing you DON’T do at a wedding?

Kiss someone else’s groom. When Edie is caught in a

compromising position at her colleagues’ wedding, all the blame

falls on her - turns out that personal popularity in the office is not that different

from your schooldays. Ostracised by everyone she knows, shamed online,

her boss suggests an extended sabbatical. He has the perfect project to fill

it - ghostwriting an autobiography for hot new acting talent, Elliot Owen.

All she has to do is keep her head down and get on with the star. Easy,

right? Wrong. Banished back to her home town of Nottingham, Edie is not

only dealing with a celebrity megabrat of epic proportions but also facing

the ghosts of her past as she moves back in with her widowed father and

layabout sister. As she questions the woman she has become, Edie realises

that turning to look at her past is not just painful - it could potentially change

her future.

DCL Shield now in

Sumner’s hands

FRASER WALKER-PEARCE

your

LOCAL

Sports

Sumner’s premier rugby team

convincingly beat High School

Old Boys winning the DCL

Shield.

Sumner outscored HSOB by

three tries, and Saturday’s game

ended 51-22.

It is Sumner’s first time as the

shield holders.

Club president Andy Toy said

the team deserved their convincing

win.

“It was a massive game. It was

brilliant, and they played well.

We were 21 points up in the first

18 or so minutes,” he said.

Elias Caven and former

Saracens player Tom Whitely

both scored twice in the shieldwinning

match, to give Sumner a

34-10 half time lead. The visitors

never went behind on the scoreboard

in a convincing victory.

Mr Toy said from there HSOB

were on the back foot for the rest

of the game.

“We defended well and attacked

well too. We put 50

points on a team at the top of

the table at their home ground, it

was awesome,” he said.

After celebrating with it at a

restaurant on Saturday night,

the shield was kept “safe” by

the captain Josh Leszczuk until

last night when it was returned

to Canterbury Rugby Football

Union to take care of until Sumner’s

next home match.

Mr Toy said “the boys” had

looked after the shield after the

match.

“They were looking after it.

They were celebrating with it

and looking after it. It will be

there on Saturday, but we’re

handing it back in tonight (Tuesday),”

he said.

Their first shield defence

match will be on Saturday

against Linwood, who sit in fifth

on the table.

The win put a stop to a five

game losing streak, which began

on April 9, when they were

beaten by Lincoln University

39-21.

They now sit in ninth on the

Hawkins Division One cup table

after seven games.

Surf low but surfers flourish

BY AARON LOCK, SURF

COACH, SUMNER

It seems like the golden weather

may have finally come to an

end. It was great while it lasted.

The surf has been a little disappointing

lately with lots of very

small days and there’s been

very little south swell over the

last two weeks as well. The

wind flow has been too west

over the country to send us any

significant swell but the weather

patterns appear to be changing

now. So the cooler wetter

weather may at least bring us

some surf.

The water temperature is still

quite mild at around 15 deg C.

The Go Pro Canterbury Surf

Championships were held

over labour weekend. The first

two days were greeted to tiny

conditions at North Beach allowing

organisers to run only

the younger age groups and the

longboarding. The final day

was a marathon of surfing with

most of the event heats having

to be squeezed into one day in

reasonable 3-4

ft waves at Gore

Bay. The event attracted

New Zealand’s

best surfers

with Maz Quinn

taking out the

open event. Local

surfers were well

represented. Harrison Whiteside

won the Under 20 event against

some stiff competition from the

North Island. Neill Robb dominated

the Over 45 division.

so. It was once the dominant

in the south island with many

champion surfers amongst the

become more active once

again. The junior club has been
