Community’s online bid to

address crime in Lyttelton

• By Noah Graham

LYTTELTON resident Candice

Milner has “had enough.”

The 18-year-old, alongside

many others in the community,

is fed up with the number of car

thefts and burglaries that have

taken place in the area.

She has teamed up with

another resident, Paul Dietche,

who are collecting data for an

online survey on Lyttelton crime

and the possible remedies.

In the past month there have

been seven car thefts residents

have reported on the ‘Lyttelton

– ain’t no place I’d rather be!’

Facebook page and tension is

rising, Mr Dietche said.

Last year he went public in Bay

Harbour News, calling for better

policing and CCTV cameras to

be placed in Lyttelton to prevent

crime.

The CCTV cameras have yet to

eventuate and Mr Dietche is still

frustrated with police responses.

So far, the pair have collected

100 responses to their survey

which shows the community is

frustrating, Ms Milner said.

The survey currently shows

more than 90 per cent believe

there has been an increase in

crime.

Sixty-six per cent, believed

police response to crime is

inadequate.

Ms Milner said the statistics

show people want something

done about the issue and there

are two options – permanent

police or CCTV cameras.

She said nobody wants

cameras in their area but if the

crime continues, something has

to be done.

Mr Dietche said he will take

the information to the Banks

Peninsula Community Board in

the hope something will be done

about it.

He said there was no point in

taking the information to the

police because he had lost faith

in them.

“We don’t have confidence

going to the police.”

When Bay Harbour News

contacted Lyttelton police

Sergeant Dave Knowles he

referred all inquiries to the

police media communications

centre.

Canterbury and West Coast

area prevention manager

Inspector Paul Reeves said

there has been no significant

increase in the Lyttelton area

recently.

“While the station operates

from 8am to 5pm, police service

the Lyttelton area 24/7, with

community patrols and officers

from other parts of the metro

area responding to any incidents

or crime as needed,” Inspector

Reeves said in an email.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

Good local policing involves good

communication to their respective

community – and often the best

medium is the local newspaper.

But in the case of the Lyttelton

police that isn’t so.

Today, we again reveal frustration

over policing in Lyttelton.

It’s not the first time we’ve covered

this issue. Last year residents

went public with concerns in Bay

Harbour News over thefts, breakins

and petty crime. But could we

get the local police to respond? No.

Now residents are collecting

crime data themselves online and

asking for remedies from the people

who respond.

We again asked Lyttelton police

for a response.

But local police can’t respond

directly apparently. We had to go

through a media centre, who got

a Canterbury-based inspector to

comment.

It’s about time the police got local

again. – Barry Clarke

Residents defend gum tree

• By Noah Graham

A 90-YEAR-OLD gum tree on

private property is being

cut down and residents are

upset.

The manna gum tree’s roots

have dug into the hillside on

Seamount Tce, Mt Pleasant,

since the 1920s and when

resident Eddie du Plessis heard

the chainsaw on Monday

morning cutting through its

limbs, he rushed to defend the

tree.

Mr du Plessis, along with

his wife Beverly, have lived on

Seamount Tce for more than 17

years and are disappointed the

tree will be cut down.

The 20m tall tree with a

4.5m girth was taken off the

notable trees list by the city

council.

This means property owners

are allowed to keep or cut the

trees on their property in spite

of its previous status.

Mr du Plessis said he had

contacted the owner who said

they would think about keeping

it but doubted he would.

Bay Harbour News was

unable to contact the owner of

the property.

Mr du Plessis said it was

a glorious tree and the

community would not be the

same without it.

Some people love it and some

hate it, but it has been in the

area longer than most of the

residents, he said.

“It’s like losing the

foreground out of a picture.

Without a foreground,

there is no picture,” Mr du

Plessis said

“It is anchored firmly in the

ground, is in excellent health,

touches the sea and the sky and

belongs here.”

Online bid to

address crime

•From page 1

Mr Dietche said he was worried

people were getting “fed up” with

the car thefts and were wanting to

take things into their own hands.

A member of the group, Kevin

Hurl, posted:

“Can I get a serious expression

of interest from others who

would be keen to get up in the

middle of the night and take a

drive around the port and possibly

take action if needed.

“I’m sorry if this sounds

extreme but this has got out of

hand and needs to be seriously

addressed.

“People have the right to sleep

contented at night and expect

their stuff to be there in the

morning, Lyttelton should not be

seen as an easy target.”

Cutting edge research sheep

LOOK CLOSELY, there is

something unusual about Sharon

the sheep – and it could help us

understand what makes human

hair curly or straight.

Far from being just one of the

flock, the Dunsandel Merino

Corriedale cross is one of about

five or six ‘mutant’ Felting Lustre

sheep around the country which

have been identified for study by

AgResearch.

Research into mutant sheep

has AgResearch scientists hoping

for a greater understanding

of curly and straight hair in

humans, and the potential for innovative

new wool products.

While it is not known how

many Felting Lustre sheep there

are, they are rare and share

the naturally occurring trait

of straight wool, instead of the

usual crimped wool.

“With these mutant sheep,

we can for example look at twin

lambs where one has straight

wool and another crimped wool

– or one animal that transforms

from straight to crimped wool

over time - and study the key differences,”

scientist Jeff Plowman

said.

“This can then be applied to

our understanding of the differences

in human hair. It’s an

opportunity we would never

have been able to get with human

subjects.”

The work began in 2011, when

an Otago lamb with an unusual

coat was brought to the attention

of AgResearch staff involved in

wool research.

Its appearance was so unusual

that the lamb was initially

thought to be a cross between

a sheep and a goat. Part of this

was because the lamb’s straight

lustrous coat was reminiscent of

an Angora goat.

Genetic testing showed it was

was the result of natural mutation.

“As a result, we started trying

to locate more of these rare

sheep, so we could study what

makes them different and how

proteins in the wool affect the

fibres,” Dr Plowman said.

“Thanks to the assistance of

farmers who came forward with

these sheep, we were able to do

that.

“We have found they show a

radical change in wool structure

and properties that can be tied

into specific protein changes.”

Sharon was bought by

AgResearch from a North Canterbury

farmer and now lives on

a farm in Dunsandel.

Bid to ease dredging concerns

• By Noah Graham

PARTIES INVOLVED in the

controversial proposal to dredge

Lyttelton Harbour will head to a

pre-hearing meeting.

Environment Canterbury has

appointed facilitator Ken Gimblett

to try and resolve some of

the issues before a resource

consent hearing begins.

Lyttelton Port Company has

applied for resource consents

to lengthen the Lyttelton

Harbour’s channel by 6.5km,

widen it by 20m and increase its

depth by 5-6m.

A deeper dredged channel

would enable larger vessels to

access Lyttelton

Port.

However,

residents do not

want the harbour

dredged.

There has

Darrell

Latham

been opposition

to the proposal

with Sumner

and Taylors

Mistake residents saying they

were worried the 18 million

cu m of spoil removed during

the process would cause a “silt

beach” if it was dumped 6km

offshore of Godley Head.

ECan received 44

submissions, with 23 submitters

CONTENTIOUS: Lyttelton Port Company is applying to dredge the harbour so larger vessels

can access the port, but with community members objecting, a facilitator has been appointed

to resolve any of the issues before the resource consent hearing.

wishing to be heard by the

committee, with the majority of

the submissions opposing the

proposal.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member

Darrell Latham said he was not

against the idea of dredging the

harbour but it would have to be

done carefully.

“I am not opposed to the

continued Lyttelton Port

development operations.

However, I am concerned

around the proposed dumping

ground and the environmental

impacts of dumping vast

amounts of dredged sediments

near the entrance to Lyttelton

Harbour.”

ECan has appointed Sir

Graham Panckhurst as the

hearing commissioner along

with Peter Atkinson and

Raewyn Solomon on the panel.

The hearing and pre-hearing

date is still to be confirmed.

Shellfish

safe to eat

It is once again safe to collect

shellfish from Akaroa Harbour

after a health warning was lifted on

Friday.

The Canterbury District Health

Board issued a warning in October

advising people not to eat shellfish

between Motunau Beach in North

Canterbury and Akaroa Harbour.

In a statement released on Friday,

the CDHB announced the health

warning had been removed.

Canterbury medical officer of

health Dr Alistair Humphrey said

tests on shellfish samples taken

from the region showed levels of

diarrhetic shellfish poisoning toxins

were within the safe limit.

“This is great news for those of us

who love collecting and eating our

own kaimoana. It has been a long

wait since the warning was originally

issued and lovers of seafood

in Canterbury should be commended

for heeding the warnings

for so long,” he said.

Mussels, oysters, tuatua, pipi,

toheroa, cockles, scallops, catseyes,

kina and all other bivalve shellfish

are now safe to eat.

Diarrhetic shellfish poisoning

symptoms typically appear within

half an hour of ingestion and last

about 24 hours. Symptoms can include

diarrhoea, vomiting, nausea

and abdominal cramps

High cost to clean up Lake Ellesmere

• By Tom Doudney

THE SECOND phase of a

programme to clean up Te

Waihora/Lake Ellesmere

is expected to involve a

substantially larger financial

investment.

Environment Canterbury

briefed city councillors on

the Whakaora Te Waihora

programme at a

public meeting on

Thursday.

A document

initially included in

the agenda for that

David

Bedford

briefing indicated

that the second

phase, to be carried

out over the next 10 years, would

cost a total of $95 million.

This would complement a

“community contribution” to

cleaning up the wider Selwyn

Waihora catchment of $774.6

million over the same period.

After the Selwyn Times

inquired about the figures, the

document was pulled from the

agenda and no mention was

made of the costs at the briefing.

The first phase of Whakaora Te

Waihora, from 2012 to 2016, involved

an $11 million work programme

over three years, jointly

funded by central Government,

ECan, Fonterra and Ngai Tahu.

ECan and Ngai Tahu have

been exploring options to fund

the second phase, including

co-funding arrangements with

central Government, private

investment, and alternative

regional council funding models.

ECan chairman David Bedford

confirmed that about $95 million

in resources would be required to

progress lake restoration actions

over the next 10 years.

“The Te Waihora Co-

Governance Group is currently

progressing the draft investment

approach. No further detail can

be given on investment in Te

Waihora restoration until that is

finalised,” he said.

Mr Bedford said the Te

Waihora Co-Governance

Group, comprised of ECan, Ngai

Tahu, the district council and

city council, also recognised

the commitment made by the

community and several agencies

in managing water in the Selwyn

Waihora catchment.

“This contribution has been

estimated at $774.6 million

over a 10-year period – an

estimate made considering

a number of variables and

current community and agency

involvement, including ongoing

work on farms, the Central

Plains Water scheme, restoration

work undertaken by the

community, volunteer hours and

in-kind contributions.”

ECan declined to comment

on how much of that figure

represented actual financial

investment as opposed to the

value of work done voluntarily.

Work to be completed in

Whakaora Te Waihora’s

second phase includes reducing

phosphorous and sediment in the

lake, re-establishing wetlands,

and enhancing riparian

plantings in the catchment,

among other measures.

It is expected to take about

another 35 years to restore

the health of the ecologically

significant lake. During an

unrelated debate at Wednesday’s

Selwyn District Council

meeting, councillor Pat McEvedy

BIG EFFORT:

The Whakaora

Te Waihora

programme

aims to restore

the lake over

35 years.

said discussions were underway

on whether the Central Plains

Water scheme could be used to

augment flows in the stressed

Selwyn River.

The river, which flows into the

lake, has just recorded its sixth

consecutive month of record low

flows.

After the meeting, Cr McEvedy

told the Selwyn Times he couldn’t

go into further details at this

stage

SCHOOLS

Pupils gain confidence

through leadership

• By Noah Graham

DIAMOND HARBOUR year

8 pupils have had a responsible

start to their year.

They have attended a variety

of meetings alongside their new

principal, Jill Pears, to learn

about leadership and what is

involved.

Not only have they attended

meetings, the students have

undertaken specific roles of

leadership such sports captains,

music leaders, technology advisers,

event organisers and enviro

leaders.

Ms Pears said giving the

pupils these type of roles helps

them learn and appreciate the

Whanaungatanga, kaitiakitanga,

maramatanga and hauora.

She said the school was hoping

to build up the pupils’ confidence

as they would all be doing

presentations to the rest of the

school later on in the term.

To help with their public

speaking skills, they were

treated with talks from Dallas

Leigh-Martene, a multi-award

winning keynote speaker and

speech writer from the United

Kingdom.

Ms Pears said the pupils had

learned a lot and hoped it had

given them more confidence

with their public speaking skills.

THE NEW Diamond Harbour

School principal is finding the

job busy, but rewarding.

Jill Pears is in her third week

as head of the school and knows

it will come with its challenges,

but she is enjoying the role.

“I’m absolutely loving it.

“I couldn’t be happier. They’re

really lovely students,” she said.

Ms Pears said the staff were

welcoming and she has spent the

first couple of weeks getting to

know everybody.

Before she took the role as

principal, she was associate principal

at Sumner School.

Ms Pears said she has been in

the education environment for

more than 34 years as a piano

teacher.

However, when her children

reached primary school, Ms

Pears decided she wanted to embrace

the teaching life fully and

she trained to enter the school

office permanently.

Since then, Ms Pears has spent

16 years working in school and

loves the daily challenges it brings.

Pears has had

a busy couple

but is looking

forward to the

challenges. ​

New principal settles in

As a teacher who has always

had an interest in technology,

particularly coding, Ms Pears

is looking forward to next year

when digital technology will be

fully-integrated into the classroom.

She said it is a completely

different way of teaching from

when she started but one that

is exciting and challenging to

implement.

Ms Pears said she wanted to

create an environment where all

the teachers are capable at teaching

coding to the children.

SKILL: Seven-year-old Charlie Hatley on the Sumner skate

ramp for final time last Thursday. The Wakefield Ave skate

ramp will be locked until Sumner Green and Skate Group

find another site to build a ramp.

Event farewells skate ramp

• By Noah Graham

MORE THAN 150 people

celebrated the closing of the

controversial Sumner skate

ramp last Thursday night.

With more than 70 children

strapping on the knee and

elbows guards and riding down

the half pipe, the community

came together one last time

before the Wakefield Ave facility

was permanently locked.

The Sumner Green and Skate

Group decided to close the

skate ramp last week after local

business complained it was

causing too much noise and city

council noise level tests showed

it exceeded city plan noise

standards.

Sumner Green and Skate

Group member Kimberly Mossman

said the night was “bitter

sweet”, but a lovely community

event.

She said the group would continue

to work with city council

to establish another skate ramp

elsewhere in the community,

preferably at 26 Nayland St.

We said:

The Sumner Green and

Skate Group has closed

down the Wakefield Ave

skate ramp after it failed

the city council’s noise

level tests.

You said:

Michelle Hardy – Insulation

under it will make it quieter,

that’s what they did to the ramp

in Methven, then put no skating

after 10pm ( I think, could be

9.30pm) stop taking things away

from kids. Solutions are better

than removal.

Betty Campion – Is it close

to houses? You will always get

whingers who don’t like to see

young people enjoying themselves.

Maybe if a poll was taken

this idea would not be supported!

Rachel Crawford – I have

to admit I agree with this. A

neighbour four houses away had

a skate ramp in their garden and

it was super noisy, day and night.

It sounded like someone was

dragging a rubbish bin back and

forth, day and night. I’m all for

community gatherings and kids

having somewhere to go, but if

the actual sound of the skating

could be minimised (insulation)

in the first place, it would help all

of the neighbours and businesses

nearby stay sane. I’m guessing

it was the sound we were hearing,

the grating etc, that led to

it being closed, not the actual

people using it (like the sound of

laughter and talking etc).

Stewart Poi Kaa – So why

not suggest insulation under the

ramp? Surely we want to encourage

our youth to be more active

and outside enjoying themselves.

If the location is the problem ,

can’t all parties find a solution.

Sometimes, I have to wonder

how the city council operates or

maybe it has offered alternatives

and the article hasn’t covered

those points.

Lynn Wood – Summer you

are too precious for sure . . .

maybe some did a spot of whinging

. . . and lo and behold the

council are onto closing it down.

Like I said Sumner, you are too

precious and the council, well

enough said. Are there not more

important things to worry about?

Ann Mason – For goodness

sake can we stop all this. It is

like people buying houses near

the airport and then complaining

about the noise. Too many

whingers.

Heather Wilkins – Michelle

Hardy’s suggestion seems good.

All you need is one or two people

to complain and whacko it’s shut

down. People need to get a life.

I don’t see them complain about

child poverty.

Jo Garrick – From the article

I read, the city council approved

it being there in the first place.

Now it says it has to go. So

insulation is the key and no skating

after 9.30pm to appease the

whingers.

Tiffany Burke – If this is

the case maybe the city council

should test my neighbours, and

then take them away too, I bet

they make more noise than

happy kids playing on a ramp.

Gary Fox – Kids these days

don’t go outside like they used

to . . . moments later “oh no,

they’re making noise, shut it

down!’’

Penny Conaghan – That

is just so pathetic. Some people

just need something to complain

about because they don’t have a

life.

Jamie Fowler – Bahah,

because there so many houses

around it . . . pc world and you

wonder why kids do nothing

outdoors these days.

Brenda Te Koeti – Recover

in something else? Seems

a shame to shut it down. It’s not

like there’s a multitude of things

for kids to do.

Bobby Derek Pokoina –

Give the kids another reason to

play up on the streets. Stupid

decision by a stupid city

council.

Moira Norton – Nimbys or

front yard in this case.

Anja Hansen – For god sake

lets punish the kids why don’t

we, find a solution instead of taking

it away.

Paul Jordan – Shocking turn

of events. Very sad.

Cathryn Lucy – Can’t it be

moved somewhere less disturbing?

Jan Johnson – Even swimming

pools are noisy. Kids

screaming etc.

Troy Gearry – Get some

earplugs.

Corey Archer – Put it at the

school.

Tash O’Connor – Buzzkill.

Lynn Mortlock – Another

stupid council decision.

David Carpenter – Good

job. Other benefits besides eliminating

noise.

Brian Skinley – Get over it

let the kids have fun a little bit of

noise isn’t a major.

Greg Longmuir – Let the

kids have fun.

FAREWELL:

Skateboarders

waiting for a

turn on the ramp

during the final

event.

PREFERRED: A computer-generated image of what the St Andrews Hill, Bridle Path and Main

Rds intersection will become if option two is the final decision.

Not enough intersection options

Port Hills MP

Ruth Dyson

talks about the

much-discussed

Ferrymead

intersection and

how council has

let the residents down.

I remember the heated

discussions that St Andrews

Hill residents had with city

council staff when the Main Rd

intersection was first proposed.

They said that it would be a

shambles.

The staff dismissed their views

as being poorly informed.

Well, guess what, it has turned

out to be a shambles. The staff are

now back out in the community

holding consultation meetings

about the options to fix the problems.

So there is a pretty strong

message there to be learnt about

listening to locals from the start.

But the consultation meetings

and the options raise another

couple of issues for me.

The first is the time of the

meetings. One was at Mt Pleasant

Memorial Community Centre

from 4.30–6pm. The second was

at Heathcote community Centre

from 5–6.30pm.

Those are difficult times for

people who are working in town

or people who have young children

who might be having their

dinner at that time.

Sure, people can submit without

going to a meeting, but they

are designed to give people information

so their submission can

be based on this information.

A lot of people attended both

but I am sure that a lot more

people couldn’t make it.

My second concern is about the

narrowness of the options.

The three options are – intersection

as is, new traffic signals and

new pre-signals and the third is

no right turn from Bridle Path

Rd to Main Rd towards Sumner

unless you are coming from St

Andrews Hill.

I think there should always be a

fourth option of – any other suggestions.

With the three options

we have been given, two of them

will be pretty unacceptable – the

intersection as it is which is causing

so much frustration and risk,

and the no right turn option.

But is option two the best of the

three?

It seems like it will win by

default rather than because it really

fixes the problem in the best

possible way.

Look after roses during hot weather

It’s hot out there!

Rachel Vogan has

tips to keep your

roses performing at

their best in summer

conditions

ROSES JUST say: “Look at me!”,

and why wouldn’t you look at

them? Coming in a tapestry

of shapes, colours and sizes, it

shouldn’t be any surprise they

are the world’s most popular

flower.

One of the best things about

roses is they have a very

generous spirit and, even better,

a forgiving nature. They just

want to please, so if you don’t

have the time or inclination to

do anything with your roses at

the moment, don’t panic, they

are still going to grow – but if

you do spend some time and

energy on them, the rewards will

speak for themselves.

WATERING

To keep roses at their best water

deeply and avoid getting any

water on the flowers or foliage.

I know this sounds pedantic,

but if you want a flawless flower

that’s the best tip I can give you.

Drop the hose nozzle down onto

the ground and enjoy the plant’s

beauty for 10 or 20 seconds, then

move on to the next plant. If you

do this twice a week, they will

love you for it.

Water on the leaves and flowers

can cause all sorts of problems,

especially fungal and disease

issues, like black spot, mildew

and rust. Prevention is far easier

to manage, hence my suggestion

to keep the water at ground

level. When water sits on the

petals overnight, especially as

summer changes to autumn, the

night air gets much cooler and

the droplets can burn the petals

leaving freckle-like spots on the

flowers.

BLOOMS: To create a new flush of stems like these

(left), deadhead on a regular basis. Rose ‘Playboy’ is

a real attention-getter with its colourful display;

MULCHING & FEEDING

Roses are hard-working plants,

and they can chew through the

soil’s nutrients quickly during

hot periods. An application of

rose fertiliser now and a thick

layer of rose mulch will replenish

the soil’s fertility and give it a

welcome boost. If you did this

back in spring, you can hold off

until autumn, but if you missed

this step do it now. The mulch

helps keep the roots cooler and

enables the soil to hold onto

more moisture. Look for rosespecific

fertiliser and mulch

because it does the best job, and

if you are feeling generous, a

drench of seaweed tonic or liquid

plant food won’t go unrewarded

with bigger and better blooms.

STAKING & TRAINING

Staking is a good way to support

standard roses from being

thrown around in the wind. Use

a thick stake, and tie the trunk

to it with some sort of soft tie

or stocking. With climbers, the

stems are quite pliable when they

are young. On a regular basis,

secure the new stems while they

are still malleable to whatever

structure you are growing them

up. Cable ties are easy to use and

blend into the background.

DEADHEADING

Deadheading is an easy job. By

doing it on a regular basis, it

speeds up the repeat flowering

and makes for a tidier plant.

Either remove the dead flower

head or cut the stem down to

the first or second set of leaves.

When you are doing this, also

consider the overall shape of the

plant and trim longer branches

back to encourage a bushier

plant and to even up the growth

habit.

CUT FLOWERS

Keep picking roses. The best

time of day to pick them is first

thing in the morning. Plunge

them straight into a bucket of

water to the neck of the bloom.

They will happily sit like this for

hours if you don’t have time to

make an arrangement straight

after cutting them. Place them

somewhere cool away from

direct sunlight.

PROBLEMS

Pests and diseases often appear

at this time of year due to the

hot temperatures and

inconsistent watering. If

problems occur, spray as soon

as you spot a problem. Again,

prevention is better than cure,

so a regular spray programme

to prevent issues is always best.

Memorial matches on Sunday

Craig anderson

Goldsmith

has moved

• By Noah Graham

THIS SUNDAY will mark five

years of hitting the pitch hard

and playing off the right foot in

memory of a Sumner sporting

legend.

Sumner Cricket Club will

host its annual three T20 games

one after another from 9am at

St Leonards Square.

The first game will be a junior

and coaches match, followed by

Sumner Wave against Sumner

Invitational XI, with the Club

Captain’s XI against President’s

XI finishing the day.

Club captain Dan Vann

said the games are played to

commemorate “the legend” Des

Lyons who passed away in 2012

at the age of 71, and his role

within the community.

The second game will feature

players invited from Sumner

clubs which Lyons contributed

to, and the Sumner rugby team.

Since 1956, when 15-year-old

Lyons first joined the SCC,

he had played and worked

continuously for the club and

maintained the St Leonards

Square ground while also

contributing to the community

through other Sumner sports.

Lyons looked after the St

Leonards Square wicket and

ground, was a surf lifesaver and

was involved with tennis, golf,

squash, water polo, hockey,

bowls and rugby clubs.

Vann said the day was a good

way to remember Lyons and his

efforts, while also a chance to

raise money for the club to keep

it improving.

Each player in the last game

of the day will be sponsored by

a local business with the money

going to the SCC. It will be a

great day for families with

food and drink available, Vann

said.

Purchase Pitfalls

– LIMs and Meth Tests

ADVERTORIAL

When purchasing a property a sale

and purchase agreement will often

include a number of purchaser’s

conditions giving purchasers the

opportunity to carry out and be

satisfied with their due diligence

before they are required to

commit to the purchase. Common

conditions relate to checking

the legal title, the Council’s

Land Information Memorandum

(LIM), obtaining engineering,

geotechnical or other professional

reports, a building report, finance

and insurance and general due

diligence.

Although the above conditions

are important considerations,

this article will focus on just two

of them: obtaining your own LIM

and the relatively recent condition

relating to methamphetamine

testing of a house.

LIMs

LIMs provide a summary of

the Council’s information on

the property and include rates

information, resource consents

issued, building consents and

permits issued, potential land

contamination, zoning information,

and now more recently, notification

if a property has been tested and

identified as being the subject of

methamphetamine contamination.

There is a widely accepted practice

for real estate agents to purchase

LIMs on behalf of their vendor

clients in order to supply copies to

prospective buyers. This has the

obvious advantage of being able

to provide this information from

the outset before an agreement is

even formed. Even though many

purchasers would be wise to have

their lawyer consider the LIM, the

vendor providing it cuts down

the time required to then order it

from the Council. This is especially

common in auctions, where bidders

are bidding to purchase on an

unconditional basis.

The problem with relying on a LIM

supplied to someone else (the

agent or the vendor or even a

previous purchaser on a collapsed

sale) is that there is no direct

relationship/contract with the

Council, meaning that if you did not

order and pay for the LIM you will

have no claim against the Council

if there is inaccurate information

in that LIM. It is important to

note that it is also common for

other property reports (building,

engineering, valuations) to

specifically exclude any liability to

third parties who have not ordered

and paid for the relevant report.

If you intend to be able to rely on

the information provided in a LIM,

then you may wish to ensure that

you order your own LIM.

Meth Testing

This is more of a recent concern

to home buyers and has been

highlighted in the media with

stories of first home buyers

having to spend thousands on

repairing their meth-contaminated

homes. The remediation of

meth-contaminated homes is

not usually covered in residential

insurance policies. For this reason

it is becoming increasingly more

common to have conditions in an

agreement for sale and purchase

for the carrying out of meth-testing.

The “cooking” of

Methamphetamine, a Class

A controlled drug, in houses

produces a toxic waste, which

can contaminate the interior of

a home. There are currently no

agreed safe levels when measuring

contamination in a home, but at

present, a standards committee

is working on developing a

new standard which will cover

the testing and remediation of

contaminated houses.

There are a number of protections

for the unsuspecting purchaser.

Although a vendor warrants in the

fine print of an agreement for sale

and purchase that they will declare

if they have received any notice or

requirement or have knowledge

of any outstanding order from a

council or other statutory body,

including any tenant, such warranty

does not extend to previous owners

of the house.

A real estate agent must disclose

any known information and may

be prosecuted if they don’t and

continue to market a property with

the knowledge that the property

was used for the manufacture of

methamphetamine.

Landlords, agents and property

managers also have statutory

obligations under the Health Act

and the Building Act to rectify any

chemical hazards on a property

they own, or act as agent for the

owner.

Even with these statutory

protections, a purchaser may

still be wise to carry out testing

before going unconditional on

their purchase. This is particularly

so where a property is or has

been a rental property, has been

frequented by many different

visitors, has high fences, security

systems and curtains drawn during

the day. Physical aspects of the

property such as stained concrete

surrounding drains, different

ventilation systems, discoloration of

benches and ceilings and corrosion

of fittings around taps, sinks and

stove tops, may also indicate

contamination has occurred.

If you are purchasing a new

property, I would be happy to assist

you in ensuring your agreement

to purchase includes conditions

to protect you. Each property

is unique and each purchaser is

unique. It is important that the

conditions in an agreement for sale

and purchase are drafted in a way

that reflect your position.

• By Noah Graham

MORE THAN 30 competitors

will grab their kiteboards to

ride the waves and wind at the

16th Canterbury Kiteboarding

Championship this weekend.

Kiteboarders from around the

South Island will brave the Avonhead

Estuary to display their

talent in the annual competition.

The competition consists of

two divisions – freestyle and

foiling – where the kiteboarders

will compete in four-man heats

for 10 minutes at a time. They

perform tricks and are judged on

the power, height and technical

difficulty and overall appearance

of the trip.

From each heat, two people go

through to the final.

Canterbury Windsport Association

president Martin Harris

said it was a great way to spend

an afternoon, although it can be

a bit cold.

“It’s a cool sport to watch as

you’re close to the action but it’s

a cold sport to watch. People will

need to bring a coat,” he said.

The competition will run from

about 2-6pm on Saturday and

Sunday, but could change depending

on the wind speed.

Harris has competed in the

competition for 10 years and said

SPORTS

Kiteboard championship

rides into Avonhead

AIR: Brad Wang, 17, will

compete in the men’s

division of the Canterbury

Kiteboarding Championship.

it will go ahead if the wind speed

reaches 15knots, about 30km/h.

Harris said there are men’s,

women’s and under-18 categories.

Everyone is welcome to enter on

the day if they are a member of

the Canterbury Windsport Association

along with a $15 entry fee.

Last year, Jackson Mills won

the men’s title for the fifth time

in a row and is looking for his

sixth this year. Brad Wang won

the under-18 men’s title and Ariana

Smith won the women’s.

Harris said if people came

and watched, they would not be

disappointed.

Redcliffs’ mother wins

ninth windsurfing title

• By Noah Graham

MERIVALE HOUSE of Travel

owner Annie Crombie is

revelling in her success after

winning a national windsurfing

championship for the ninth

time.

Crombie faced five other

competitors and battled through

10 rounds of races to finish with

seven wins and three seconds on

the clock, which secured her another

Boardstore New Zealand

Windsurfing Slalom Nationals

title.

She said the competition was

tough and made her “puff a lot,”

but it was the first time since

she started windsurfing competitively

that she did not have

nerves before the race in spite of

the strong competition.

The 49-year-old has windsurfed

for more than 25 years

and started competing in 2007.

The races were harder this

year than they ever had been,

Crombie said.

She said 19-year-old Lyttelton

resident Fenella Bowater raced

alongside her and pushed her to

her limits. Bowater won three of

the races.

The competitors this year were

exceptional both on and off the

water as they got along well inbetween

races, often talking and

having some fun, Crombie said.

SUCCESS: Redcliffs’ mother Annie Crombie claimed her ninth

national windsurfing title recently.

In the under-20 women’s

event, Bowater took first

spot and another Lyttelton

competitor, Meg Rennie, 15, was

second.

In the under-20 men’s event,

former Christ’s College student

Thomas O’Neill and current

student Ben Davie took second

and third.

Terry Crombie, Annie’s

husband, also competed in the

men’s open and was winning

for two days before Maui’s Peter

John came from behind.

Annie Crombie said windsurfing

runs through her family’s

genes. Her 15-year-old daughter,

Kate, is also a keen windsurfer.

Crombie said her family was

incredibly proud of her and she

was proud of herself as well.

“I feel stoked, I feel proud. I

raced at national level and it’s

really satisfying to do.”

She said the 10th title is in her

sights but Bowater will not make

it easy.
