Traffic lights change at intersection

• By Caitlin Miles

TRAFFIC LIGHTS at the

controversial St Andrews

Hill intersection will be

reprogrammed to try and ease

confusion for motorists.

The left arrow light at the

Main Rd traffic lights will be

reprogrammed to allow for

vehicles wanting to turn right off

St Andrews Hill Rd onto Bridle

Path Rd a better chance to get

across a lane.

Heathcote Ward city councillor

Sara Templeton said: “This

will allow St Andrews Hill to

clear without worrying about

unseen traffic coming around

the corner.”

Lights on Main and Bridle Path

Rds will communicate and allow

traffic to flow better.

Residents in the area have

complained about the layout and

design of the intersection suggesting

that it would not work

even before it was built.

Three options were presented

for public consultation last year –

640 submissions were received.

Option one proposed to leave

the intersection as is, option two

would see new traffic signals on

St Andrews Hill Rd and new

pre-signals on Bridle Path Rd

and option three is to ban right

turns from Bridle Path Rd onto

Main Rd.

None of these options

were given the green light by

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board.

They have decided to change

the light phasing which will be

trialled for three months.

When it starts is yet to be

determined.

think altering the traffic

lights on Main Rd will help

ease traffic issues at the St

Andrews Hill intersection?

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

THE NEXT three months will

determine whether a solution

to the confusing St Andrews

Hill traffic junction problem has

FINALLY been solved.

This has been one painful saga.

Bay Harbour News has pushed

for improvements to the St Andrews

Hill/Main/Bridle Path Rds

intersection since residents came

to us many moons ago with well

thought out concerns.

How correct they were. The

problem was city council staff

didn’t listen. But now we just

might have a solution, which you

can read about on page 1.

In sport Dylan Nel (page 19)

continues his great form in senior

rugby.

The South African-born player

scored two tries on Saturday

to keep him at the top of the

competition’s MVP medal race.

Dirty tunnel draws criticism

• By Caitlin Miles

THE CLEANLINESS of the

Lyttelton Tunnel is in the

spotlight.

Lyttelton Community Association

chairman Ken Maynard

said the state of the tunnel has

“been a problem for a while.”

“There are black

streaks down the

walls. It needs a

general spring

clean,” Mr Maynard

said.

Ken

Maynard

New Zealand

Transport Agency

is in charge of the

tunnel’s maintenance

– it receives about one

complaint every month.

NZTA maintenance contract

manager Barry Stratton said

since the February 22, 2011,

earthquake things had got worse.

“There are a number of reasons

why the tunnel is currently, and

since the earthquakes, a much

dirtier environment than it used

to be,” Mr Stratton said.

After the tunnel was reopened

following the earthquake, up to

eight tonnes of dirt and dust was

cleared from the tunnel every

month.

As a result, last year NZTA

made the Covered Loads bylaw

to stop loose material flying off

trucks and settling in the tunnel.

Since then the most recent

dust count has more than

halved.

“The bylaw does not capture

dirt on other parts of trucks for

example, the wheels, but it has

had a noticeable and useful effect,”

he said.

However, Mr Maynard said

he didn’t think the bylaw had

much of an impact as it was still

covered in dirt.

He said it was not appealing to

tourists either.

“If you’re a tourist and your

first view of Lyttelton is the tunnel

it is not a good look,” he said.

The tunnel walls are washed

every three weeks, but Mr Maynard

said he thinks it needs to be

done more often.

The most recent clean was

carried out last Thursday, but

it was not completed due to a

machinery malfunction. The

remainder of the work will

scheduled wall wash.

Mr Stratton said while the

cleaning is carried out traffic

is down to one lane to keep it

moving.

In Brief

SKATE PARK WORKSHOP

A permanent skate park is one

step closer to finding a home in

the Sumner/Ferrymead areas.

A community workshop will

be held at 6pm on July 24 at the

Redcliffs Mt Pleasant Bowling

Club to get input into what

is important in a site. While

locations were identified in 2009,

the city council decided to look

again due to the changes the

February 22, 2011, earthquake

made on land. Once sites are

identified the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board,

would then consider the options

– prior to being put out for

public consultation.

ROAD CLOSURE

A section of Nayland St in

Sumner is closed while a new

car park is constructed and

upgrades are made to the road.

The section, between Wakefield

Ave and Richmond Hill Rd will

be closed until July 14.

Redcliffs architect behind Linwood redesign

• By Bridget Rutherford

A REDCLIFFS architect will

lead the redesign of Linwood

College.

Architectus director Carsten

Auer will be the project manager

in the school’s full redevelopment

and rebuild.

His previous work includes

Lyttelton Primary School’s master

plan, the city’s Innovation

Precinct spatial framework, St

Cuthbert’s College performing

arts centre and Auckland Grammar

School’s sports complex.

Mr Auer said schools were

more than places to learn – they

helped shape the identity of the

community.

So any design had to reflect

that and the values and culture

of the community.

“This project is special not only

for its scale, but in particular for

the strong pedagogical vision

developed by the college and the

leadership role it is looking to

undertake in the revitalisation of

the eastern suburbs of Christchurch.”

He said the project was

personal for him as he lived

in Redcliffs, which was part of

Linwood’s catchment, and he

wanted to contribute to shaping

the future of the school.

“I believe the current college

leadership is working successfully

to rebuild the confidence of

all of their community in what

Linwood College has to, and can,

offer.”

Architectus’ other projects

include the bus interchange, St

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Andrew’s chapel, the central

city’s new Knowledge Centre,

and more than 30 school projects

across the country.

Linwood principal Richard

Edmundson said the awarding of

the contract was a step forward.

VALUES: Architect Carsten Auer, who will redesign Linwood

College, stands in the recreation area. (Above) The awardwinning

St Andrew’s College chapel.

“We’re absolutely delighted

to have someone of Carsten’s

reputation and his work in

understanding communities and

how buildings can support the

community,” he said.

“It’s Linwood’s turn.”

The school’s buildings

have reached the end of their

lifespan, and it has carried out

significant consultation with the

community on how it could look

and feel better.

Mr Edmundson said the

current roll was 650, but the

master plan was being done for

1800.

It wants to become the school

of choice for students living in

its catchment, including Sumner,

Redcliffs, Mt Pleasant, and

Lyttelton, many of whom travel

to schools on the other side of

town.

Governors Bay speed

solution sought

• By Caitlin Miles

Rosie Belton

Andrew Turner

SOLUTIONS TO the issue of

motorists speeding in Governors

Bay may soon be on the horizon.

Governors Bay residents met

with Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner to discuss the issues and

potential solutions to stop boy

racers and other drivers speeding

through the area.

For several years, Rosie Belton

has been campaigning for something

to be done and has been

reassured action will happen,

following the meeting with Cr

Turner.

Cr Turner said he has been

in discussions with city council

staff around the options of larger

speed signs and slowing down

the entry speed into the area

from 100km/h to 70km/h.

“Governors Bay is definitely on

the radar,” Cr Turner said.

Ms Belton said while it was a

step in the right direction she

would like to see the options ‘presented

in writing’ so she could

be a bit more relaxed something

would happen.

“We know it is in the city council’s

plans but we don’t want to

be waiting a long time, we want

it down as soon as possible,” Ms

Belton said.

Cr Turner said the community

will soon be asked to have their

say on putting ‘restricted times’

on Summit Rd to deter boy racers

and stop them from using Summit

Rd.

Ms Belton said she is in full

support of the idea and thinks it

will also help reduce the problems

in Governors Bay.

No parking cost for residents

•From page 1

The ideas included reducing

the number of plastic bags used,

organising beach clean-up days,

and improving the understanding

of how local terrestrial and

marine ecosystems work.

• By Caitlin Miles

RESIDENTS WILL not have to

pay to park on Clifton Tce.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board members

were split on the issue of making

four ‘residents only’ car parks

below number 11 Clifton Tce.

The issue was raised by residents

who expressed concern

over difficultly finding parks on

the narrow stretch of road.

When the city council suggested

making current free parks

into ‘residents only’ and putting

a yearly fee on them, it was

met with mixed reviews from

residents.

Ten residents responded,

with five submitters against the

proposal and five supporting the

idea.

The community board previously

decided to hold off on

making a decision until it could

go to the site.

City council staff recommended

‘parking ticks’ be put in,

to outline where the parks are

but not to make them ‘resident

only’. However, it would make

it easier in the future to make

the parking residents only if the

issue was raised again.

The community board was

split on the issue, three supported

the staff recommendations,

three were against and two

declared a conflict of interest. As

a result the current parking will

remain the same, unmarked and

free.

Heathcote Ward city councillor

Sara Templeton said it was a

difficult to make a decision given

the community’s initial split

reaction to the plan.

Seafarers ask for port levy

• By Caitlin Miles

PUTTING A levy on ships

coming into Lyttelton Harbour

to help fund the Lyttelton

Seafarers’ Centre is unlikely.

The currently underfunded

Seafarers Charitable Trust wants

the Lyttelton Port of Christchurch

to put a levy on incoming

ships with the money going to

the centre, which is run by the

trust, so it can continue to operate.

The centre

serves seafarers

away from home

with shore-based

welfare facilities

when they travel

to Lyttelton.

It is open

every night from

7-10pm and offers

internet, free food

and beverages

and somewhere

warm for seafarers

to stay while

they are in Lyttelton.

It is run by

volunteers.

Due to a lack of

funding the trust

is unable to provide sufficient

services as required under the

Maritime Labour Convention

recently signed by New Zealand.

This is why the trust is looking at

other funding options – including

asking for a levy.

However, Lyttelton Port of

Christchurch chief executive

Peter Davie indicated they would

not levy ships.

“The Lyttelton Seafarers Centre

is a facility for those who want to

use it and is not a Lyttelton Port

service. LPC currently provides

sponsorship to the Centre. The

largest ports in the North and

South Islands do not have a port

levy on ships which is given

to agencies to provide welfare

facilities for visiting seamen,” Mr

Davie said.

Banks Peninsula Community

Board chairwoman Christine

Wilson said the community

board has a “responsibility” to

provide for the men and women

coming into Lyttelton to be able

to provide them a way of contacting

their families.

The centre has been operating

out of a temporary building at 18

Norwich Quay since 2015, after

having lost its previous building

in the earthquakes.

City council staff are working

on a report to be presented to the

community board about what

other options the centre has

for funding and finding a more

BEING TURNED down by a

publisher didn’t stop Redcliffs

author Chris Llewelyn from

making his latest book available

to children and parents.

Mr Llewelyn said the book,

The Railway Bogie, is based on

a story he was told about 17

years ago when he was living in

London.

It’s a story about a sick boy

named Tom on the London tube

train.

Mr Llewelyn presented the

book to publishers, but said

while they enjoyed the story,

they wouldn’t publish it.

He has previously written

children’s books including How

does the giraffe get to work and A

seagull called Moose.

While he doesn’t have any

children of his own to test the

story on, he shared it with his

friends and their children. He

said they loved it so he decided

to try and crowdfund to get the

$3000 needed to print the book.

He put his cause on PledgeMe

amount of support he got from

friends as well as total strangers.

New rules planned for boat berths

CITY COUNCIL-owned

jetties and marinas in Banks

Peninsula will fall under a new

bylaw – if it is approved.

The Marine and River Facilities

Bylaw, which was put

into place in 2008, has been

reviewed and a new one is

proposed to replace it.

The purpose of the proposed

replacement bylaw is to

facilitate the fair and safe use

of, and access to, city council

marine, river and lake facilities,

and to protect them from

damage.

Time limits could be put on

mooring vessels at Akaroa,

Daly’s, Wainui and Diamond

Harbour wharves.

The bylaw will also regulate

activities that may occur on,

near or around the facilities;

aim to balance recreational and

commercial use and access;

prevent damage to the facilities;

protect health and safety; and

reduce nuisance issues.

Commercial use of the facilities

will still need city council

permission.

Tighter controls on vehicles

using the wharf have also been

proposed.

Vehicles will not be allowed

to be left unattended on the

wharf and can only be on

the wharf if they are actively

involved in servicing a business

or undertaking maintenance.

•Consultation on the

proposed new bylaw will

be open until August 6.

•The full bylaw can

be viewed on the city

council’s website – https://

www.ccc.govt.nz/thecouncil/consultations-andsubmissions/haveyoursay/

Lyttelton actor tackles big role

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

TOM TREVELLA was a

late bloomer when it came to

securing his first professional

gig as an artist on stage.

Trevella, 46, spent his earlier

years travelling the world.

It wasn’t until the Lyttelton

resident returned to the city in

his 30s that he met director/

actor Derek Doddington and

his theatre career began to

blossom.

When Doddington founded

Top Dog Theatre in 2003,

Trevella was one of the first

performers to jump on

board by starring in Steven

Berkoff’s gritty drama West.

It was at Top Dog that Trevella

was spotted by The Court

Theatre’s artistic director Ross

Gumbley, who gave him his

first professional role in the

original play Happy Coupling

in 2006.

“During my 20s, I did a

lot of travelling and got life

experience in a way and was

able to bring that into theatre

. . . it is not something I had a

concentrated effort to do, I just

sort of fell into it,” he said.

More than a decade on,

after establishing himself as a

regular in the city’s art scene,

he will feature in Top Dog’s

latest comedy Up ‘N’ Under by

CHALLENGE: The cast of Up ‘n’ Under – Tom Trevella as

Arthur (back left), Dougal Frame as Tony, Dan Crossen as

Frank, Miriam van Voorthuizen as Hazel (front left), Aaron

Boyce as Steve/Reg Welsh and Darren Sundborn as

Phil.

John Godber.

Trevella will play the role of

ex-professional rugby league

player Arthur who bets his life

savings he can train a team to

beat the undefeated ‘Wheatsheaf

Arms’.

He said the show is almost

a re-staging of Sylvester Stallone’s

movie Rocky – but told

through rugby league.

Trevella was also one of

the first on the scene when

the Loons Theatre Trust, now

the Lyttelton Arts Factory,

was established in 2007. He

still performs with the theatre

company.

He appeared in its first

production of The Butler by

Joe Bennett, which ended up

touring in Islington, London,

for three weeks.

Since the February 2011

earthquake, Trevella has

seen great changes in the

Lyttelton Arts Factory with

the establishment of its new

building on 1 Sumner Rd.

Trevella is one of a limited

number in the city who have

managed to make theatre their

main profession.

“I don’t have an expensive

house, dog, car, partner or

children . . . those are the sort

of things a theatre career can’t

support,” he said.

When he returned home

from his travels, Trevella spent

several years working in varied

jobs in the city before he got

his first professional gig.

This included driving trams,

working at the Christchurch

Art Gallery and selling swimming

pool chemicals.

Trevella said a highlight of

his travels was living in New

York city for two years, where

he learned he is the smallest of

the small, a lesson which gave

him the licence to be whoever

he wanted to be.

•Up ‘N’ Under will run at

the Lyttelton Arts Factory

from July 12-22. To book

tickets, go to http://

Green MP

Eugenie

Sage writes

about the

importance

of planting

projects

and getting

involved

What are your favourite

local trees? The big norfolk

pines near Sumner Beach, the

magnificent oak trees in the

Heathcote Domain, or a native

tree in your or a neighbour’s

garden?

Trees protect the land by

holding together banks and

cliffs, reducing soil erosion,

soaking up rain and reducing

stormwater runoff. They

provide us with oxygen, filter

and absorb pollution, and

provide summer shade.

Trees make our

neighbourhoods more pleasant

and big trees which provide a

reference point, help create a

sense of place.

There are regular planting

days to help the Port Hills

recover from the fires. As the

Garden City, Christchurch

could also be leading the

country with urban planting in

our central city and suburbs.

Auckland city council

DEVASTATING: Replanting the Port Hills after February’s

fire is one visionary project to green our city.

recently launched its ambitious

Million Trees’ initiative to

plant over one million trees

over the next three years. It

aims to offset climate pollution

and protect stream health and

water quality with streambank

planting.

There are several visionary

projects to green our city by

planting trees and food crops

on former residential red

zone and other earthquake

damaged land.

The Avon-Otakaro Network

has a wonderful vision of

re-establishing the original

kahikatea forest which once

grew in wet soils close to

the river, to create an ecosanctuary

close to Travis

Wetland.

The Urban Forest Project

is re-generating an unused

former school field off Ferry

Rd.

The plan is to plant

thousands of native trees to

encourage native birds and

wildlife, and stabilise the land

to mitigate against future

flooding. The area will be

accessible to the public, in a

similar way to the Riccarton

Bush reserve, with sealed

pathways and boardwalks.

The Food Resilience

Network proposes edible

gardens to be planted on redzoned

land to improve access

to local healthy food.

The community driven,

Otākaro Orchard Project,

recently had a win, reaching its

fundraising goal to begin work

on their edible garden city

vision, by turning rubble into

an edible garden to create an

urban food hub.

These are all inspiring

initiatives for greening our

Garden City.

I hope the city council and

Regenerate Christchurch

can continue to encourage

urban planting projects, and

we can perhaps provide a bit

of healthy competition to

Auckland. It’s another reason

why City Care should remain

city council owned – to help

strengthen our Garden City

reputation.

a recent

psychological

residents and groups in

in the aftermath of a

disaster

Residents across Sumner,

Redcliffs and Mt Pleasant

have been putting safety first,

training in first aid.

Residents and members

of Sumner Volunteer Fire

Brigade, Neighbourhood

Support, and Van Asch Deaf

Education Centre gathered for

training in psychological first

aid recently.

Psychological first aid is a

‘humane, supportive response

to a fellow human being who

is suffering and who may need

support’.

Since 2002, psychological

first aid has been recommended

as a key part of the

provision of psychosocial

support following emergencies

and traumatic events, and is

best delivered as a communitybased

activity.

It is estimated that 60-70

per cent of the population can

recover when basic needs are

met and they are connected

and supported by the people

and community around

them.

It is empowering to know

that our initial response and

care for each other in a disaster

can have such a positive and

profound impact on our ability

to recover.

Learning to be conscious of

our response and fully present

how to prioritise support in

There was a lot of thoughtprovoking

portraits were hung in locations

around Lyttelton, associated

with either the past or present

subjects.

PAST MEETS PRESENT:

Lyttelton’s golden boy

Marlon Williams portrayed

here as British naval officer

Robert Falcon Scott.

For each person featured in the

exhibition, Holden found a present

day local connected to them,

either through occupation or

personal relationships, to serve

as a ‘living canvas’.

Accompanying historical audio

is complemented by recordings

of the participating locals

reflecting on their forebears.

The exhibition is on display

from now until October 23 at

Canterbury Museum.

Nel’s epic season continues

• By Gordon Findlater

ANOTHER dominant display

from No 8 Dylan Nel helped

Sumner to a 28-9 win over High

School Old Boys at St Leonards.

The South African-born player

scored two tries and helped set

up another on Saturday.

The 24-year-old now has 11

tries for Sumner this season

to lead all scorers in the metro

competition.

Nel’s also running away with

the MVP medal race – he has 19

points this season, six more than

his nearest rival.

After each game, the coaches

from both sides will decide on

three standout players from

the match who are given points

towards the end of season MVP

award.

His accomplishments this

season have helped the Martin

Dodgson-coached Sumner side

to lead section two of the metro

competition with two roundrobin

games remaining.

“He’s got an ability to break

tackles because he’s so big and

strong, but then he also has a

lot of speed for a big guy,” said

Dodgson.

Nel made the move to

Sumner from South Africa to

further develop his game and

is currently in his third season

with the ‘wave’. He led the team

with 10 tries last season – a feat

he has already eclipsed in 2017.

ON TOP: Dylan

Nel scored two

High School Old

Boys to lead all

ROZELLE MAY

While he is making a name

for himself as a dominant ball

carrier, Dodgson believes Nel

also has the makings to be

a maestro when it comes to

turning the ball over at the break

down.

“If he’s finishing you off, he

will hurt you. If he bounces back

to his feet and gets back over the

ball you can’t move him,” said

Dodgson.

It’s no secret that Nel is highly

thought of by many in higher

ranks. Earlier this year, he was

rushed to South Africa as injury

cover for the Crusaders when

Kieran Read broke his thumb.

Nel has also been given a

SPORTS

recent Ranfurly Shield defence

over Wanganui, and it’s expected

he will play more of a role for the

provincial side later this year.

Going forward there’s every

chance it may not be long until

he features in Super Rugby.

“Who knows where his ceiling

is. He is just so single-minded

in his desire to get better,” said

Dodgson.

“He’s learning at the moment

to add a bit of variety, which he

will need at the next level.”

Saturday’s win over High

School Old Boys started as a

spectacle and ended in a mud

bath.

With the division two side

playing a curtain raiser in wet

conditions, it didn’t take long

for the St Leonards pitch to cut

up.

Nik Cumming and Poasa

Waqanibau scored first half

tries along with Nel’s double to

give Sumner a 28-9 advantage

at the break. By the second 40,

the middle of the pitch became a

sea of mud, enabling the wave to

keep rolling.

Sumner face a trip to Belfast

on Saturday before their final

handful of opportunities for round-robin game against

tickets Canterbury, including on their sale Linwood at n St Leonards. w

SPORTS

START: Several Sumner runners got to the front of the pack early in the grade 10 and under race.

Abi Scott-Douglas and Amelie Clark showed off their medals from the grade eight race.

Cross-country glory for Sumner

SUMNER RUNNING Club had

a successful outing at the South

Island cross-country champs at

the weekend.

Sumner runners took home a

number of titles at the Kennett

Cup Steeples at the Old Ascot

Golf course, QE II, on Saturday.

The juniors led the way at the

start of the day with Charlie Bailey

(boys 12) and Maddie Sharpe

(girls 12) bringing home the

club’s first medals, coming first

and third respectively.

The grade 10 and under race

saw a further six medals won.

Abi Scott-Douglas and Hero

Barretteli continued their recent

dominance by winning their

age groups, with Lucy Wheeler,

Brooklyn Aitken, Amelie Clark

and Fred Fitch, who celebrated

his seventh birthday, crossing the

line in third place.

The juniors also had success in

the team events, walking away

with four medals.

The club’s results did not stop

there. The masters 35-39 men’s

race saw Sumner dominate the

age group and take out the first

four spots with David Fitch winning

the line honours.

Mermaids take to the

field with Black Ferns

IT WAS a big moment for the

under-7 Mermaids rugby team

when they led the Black Ferns

onto the field recently.

The Lyttelton team also sung

the national anthem with them

before the Black Ferns faced off

against Australia.

Canterbury Rugby offered

them the chance to take part.

The Mermaids were formed

this season and have played

many games with very good

results.

Coach Ian Rees and managers,

Lisa and Chrissy, were

thrilled with the opportunity

given to the “all girls” ripper

rugby team.

They believed it promoted

girls playing rugby by giving

them the chance to proudly

represent their Lyttelton Rugby

Club.

The Black Ferns won 44–17

in the International Women’s

Series. They played at Rugby

Park.​

Home, Sea & Between

JoSH BaSHford

The imagery in Josh Bashford’s new body of work was inspired by last summer’s

early morning and late evening fishing adventures. Adventures such as heading

40km offshore to fish for Groper off Banks Peninsula, or ducking down to

Birdlings Flat for a relaxing evening surf casting on the beach, fishing the Rakaia

River or Hurunui river mouth early morning for the elusive Chinook salmon.

These places are of great significance for Josh Bashford. They provide him with

not only a harvest of fresh kai for friends and family, but also the visual material

for his art making.

This visual material is sometimes captured on

a GoPro camera, but more often it’s caught by

simply being physically present in these very

special places. It’s the way a bird may move

through the air, a sudden glimpse of a fish

breaching, or the excitement of hundreds of birds

and kahawai chasing after small bait fish along

the beach. All this strong imagery settles itself

in Josh’s mind and has allowed him to produce

this new body of limited edition woodcut prints

on canvas.

Josh’s latest exhibition named ‘Home, Sea &

Between’ takes place at Little River Gallery from

July 8th until August 2nd.

Trees and Power Lines

The responsibilities of tree owners and Orion under the

Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003

Orion New Zealand owns and operates the electricity distribution network in central

Canterbury between the Waimakariri and Rakaia rivers and from the Canterbury coast

to Arthur’s Pass. Trees touching power lines account for 10-20% of all unplanned power

outages on our network. If you see a tree touching a power line, or any other hazardous

tree condition, please contact us immediately on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

This advertisement provides a general notice of the Electricity (Hazards from Trees)

Regulations 2003 and the dangers of trees near power lines. More detail on these issues

can be found on our website www.oriongroup.co.nz or by phoning us on 03 363 9898.

The Electricity (Hazards from Trees) Regulations 2003

The regulations set out the responsibilities of electricity line companies and tree owners.

The purpose of the regulations is to protect the safety of the public and help to ensure a

secure supply of electricity. The regulations:

• define safe separation distances between trees and power lines

• specifies who is responsible for ensuring clearances are maintained

• places potential liability on the tree owner if any damage or accident occurs due to

trees touching power lines. (Note that the word “trees” includes all types of vegetation,

including shrubs, hedges and climbing vines.)

What are the dangers?

Trees near power lines need to be trimmed or removed for the following reasons:

• children like to climb trees and when trees are close to power lines there is a risk of

serious injury or death

• in severe weather conditions, vegetation can become electrically “live” and may

electrocute anyone or anything that touches it

• while a tree may not touch a power line in fine weather, branches can bend or break in

wind or snow storms, causing serious damage and possibly prolonged power outages

• in dry conditions, electrical sparking caused by branches or windblown debris on lines

may cause fires.

Minimum distances required between trees and power lines

The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees and power lines, defined in

the regulations, are outlined in the diagram to the right. A common sense approach, by tree

owners trimming trees early, will generally prevent trees touching power lines.

To maintain a safe distance from power lines some trees require cutting or trimming

more frequently than other trees, but if it is determined that cutting or trimming cannot

satisfactorily meet the requirement then removing the tree is recommended. Other

situations may require trees to be felled because they are at a distance that is considered

to be a hazard due to falling during storms or being diseased.

Orion’s tree management programme

Orion’s tree management programme is largely governed by the Electricity (Hazards from

Trees) Regulations 2003. Our programme involves education, monitoring and the cut/trim

or removal of trees that threaten to come into contact with power lines. Through this

programme we work with tree owners to minimise the risk of their trees touching power lines.

We currently undertake periodic cutting or trimming of vegetation within the notice zone.

The intent of this cutting or trimming is to support safety and reduce the risk of power

outages. This periodic cutting or trimming by us does not remove the tree owner’s

responsibilities and in the case of fast growing species may not be sufficient to ensure

that trees remain outside of the growth limit zone. You will be notified prior to any periodic

trimming being carried out and the work will be completed by arborists carrying Orion

identification.

If Orion becomes aware of a tree which is within the ‘Notice zone’ (see Tree “A” in the diagram

below) then we are required to issue the tree owner with a Hazard Warning notice. For trees

within the ‘Growth limit zone’ (see Tree “B” in the diagram below) we are required to issue the

tree owner with a Cut or Trim notice.

What is a hazard warning notice?

If a tree is within the “Notice zone” (see Tree “A” in the diagram), we are required to issue a

hazard warning notice to the tree owner.

Tree “A”

Notice

zone

Growth

limit

zone

Tree “B”

Power line Notice zone Growth limit zone

66kV (high voltage) 5.0 metres 4.0 metres

33kV (high voltage) 3.5 metres 2.5 metres

11kV (high voltage) 2.6 metres 1.6 metres

400V/230V (low voltage) 1.5 metres 0.5 metres

Note:

V = Volts; kV = kilo Volts ie 1,000 Volts

1) These distances are from the power line, not the power pole

2) These distances are a minimum and apply in all conditions including high wind or snow

3) In most instances the power lines that go to a house or building are low voltage power

lines. Power lines that go down a street may be low or high voltage.

Trimming trees near power lines

Trimming trees near power lines can be extremely hazardous and the dangers should not

be underestimated. Contact with a power line can cause:

• injury or death to yourself, family or passers by

• injury or death to livestock

• damage to property and other trees

• damage to electrical appliances

• damage to power supply facilities

• damage to third parties.

We recognise that the public is not always experienced in tree trimming, so we are happy

to advise you on this. We can arrange for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your

cost. If, however, you prefer to arrange your own tree trimming, we recommend you hire

professionals with the necessary expertise and safety procedures to competently carry out

this work.

If you or someone working for you intends to work within 4 metres of power lines, a close

approach consent is required from Orion before you start. As a tree owner you may be liable

for any damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.

A hazard warning notice alerts the tree owner that the tree has encroached the notice zone

and that if it encroaches the “Growth limit zone” (see Tree “B” in the diagram) a cut or trim

notice may be immediately given to the tree owner (see above).

The growth limit zone is the area around a power line which trees must not encroach even

in windy or snow conditions. The notice zone is a distance one metre beyond the growth

limit zone.

What is a cut or trim notice?

If we become aware that a tree has encroached on the “Growth limit zone”, we will give

notice in writing to the tree owner that the tree must be cut or timed to maintain the

distances prescribed in the regulations, and the timeframes for action.

If no action is taken Orion may then trim the tree and seek to recover costs.

Who pays for the cut or trim?

Orion is responsible for the first cut of trees near power lines, where the first cut is on a

property basis, not owner basis. We have already met this obligation by completing a first cut

of vegetation on all our lines.

The tree owner will need to organise and pay for any subsequent and future cuts or trims.

We are happy to provide tree owners with a list of approved arborists who can carry out this

work, and also advise the best solution given the circumstances.

What fines can be imposed?

A tree owner commits an offence where a cut or trim notice is given, and without reasonable

excuse, the tree owner fails to have the tree cut or trimmed and/or fails to advise us of the

time and location of the cut or trim.

A person who commits such an offence is liable on summary conviction to a fine not

exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues, that person is also liable for a further fine of

not more than $500 for every day or part day during which the offence continues.

Contact us if in any doubt about your tree

We aim to work with tree owners to ensure safety is maintained and power outages are

minimised. We will actively work with tree owners to see trees are trimmed or cut before

regulatory powers are applied. However, as we wish to ensure the safety and security of the

public, we will use the regulations where necessary.

Please contact us or an approved Orion tree trimming contractor to help with your trees,

or to discuss your options.
