Students aim to build a better world

• By Julia Evans

STUDENTS FROM Hornby

High School and Canterbury

University will don their tool

belts as part of a collaborative

building programme.

The Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

approved a $5000 grant to go

towards the Young Community

Builders programme.

It aims to link high school students

who have ideas for building

within the community with

university students as mentors.

“This project will provide a

process to bring those ideas to

light by connecting high school

students, university students and

community organisations,” city

council staff said.

Hornby High principal Robin

Sutton said he saw great merit in

the project.

“I speak for all my colleagues

in saying we’d be in for any future

evolution of this,” he said.

The programme is proposed to

run for six weeks from September

11 and will involve a range

of high schools.

Second

chance

possible

for cycle

scheme

• By Julia Evans

THE CAMPAIGN to get more

people cycling to Jellie Park Sport

and Recreation Centre may get a

second chance.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board was

given a briefing by city council

western area operations manager

Martin McGregor at its meeting

last Monday.

Mr McGregor said the trial ran

smoothly but had only a “small-tomoderate

uptake” so it wouldn’t be

continuing.

But the board disputed that.

It has requested the incentive be

trialled again, but this time with a

more significant incentive, such as

free pool entry for cyclists.

The board also said a longer trial

was necessary, as well as a more

robust promotion so people are

more aware of it.

Board chairman David Cartwright

said: “One month is great,

but you need to do it for a minimum

of six.”

The second trial round will

hopefully begin in September and

run for at least six months.

GOOD TO see the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board has forced

a rethink of the city council’s

decision to abandon the cycle to

Jellie Park scheme (see page 1).

Last week we reported the

incentivised scheme had been

aborted and would not be

implemented at other recreation

centres aorund the city.

Odd at a time when the city

council is spending squillions on

cycleways.

So full marks to the community

board for putting its foot

down with the city council.

The board has requested there

be a more significant incentive,

such as free pool entry for

cyclists.

The board also said a longer

trial was necessary, as well as a

more robust promotion so people

are become more aware of it.

The outcome will be known

fairly soon. – Barry Clarke

Firebug returns to Ilam, Burnside

• By Julia Evans

POLICE FEAR for

residents safety as arson

attacks ramp up again after

a lull in Burnside and Ilam.

The police are investigating

after six wheelie bins

were set alight in the early

hours of Saturday morning.

Those working the case

are urging the perpetrator

to talk to police before

anyone is seriously hurt,

detective sergeant Michael

Freeman said.

Four bins were burnt

on Westburn Tce, one on

Chevron Pl and the last bin

was set alight on Greers Rd.

A garage on Chevron

Pl was also damaged by

fire.

“Police are treating the

incidents as arson and

believe they are linked to

previous wheelie bin fires

in the area,” detective sergeant

Freeman said.

The previous four attacks

happened in May but there

had been a period of at

least a month where there

had been no fires.

Greers Rd resident James

Wallace, whose flaming

bin scorched the side of his

home while his children

were asleep in May, said it

would eventually end in

loss of life.

“It’s attempted murder,

the wheelie bin was up

against the house and

could’ve set it on fire and

someone could’ve died,”

Mr Wallace said.

He said he was doing

a letterbox drop telling

people to keep their bins

hidden.

Residents in the area

have also been told by

police to keep their wheelie

bins out of sight and off

the road, even behind their

house.

Police are seeking reports

of anyone acting suspiciously

around Westburn

Tce, Chevron Pl and Greers

Rd between midnight and

1.30am on Saturday morning

as well as any security

footage.

And if people have not

yet reported an arson on

or around their property,

they should contact police

immediately.

Anyone with information

should phone 363 7400

or to speak to Crimestoppers

anonymously on 0800

555 111.

Common sense over car parks prevails

WESTERN NEWS

Readers respond

to the article in the

Western News last

week regarding the city

council’s decision to cut

an incentive programme

that encourages people

to cycle to Jellie Park

Recreation and Sport

Centre

Fendalton city councillor

Jamie Gough writes

about the common sense

approach used by his

community board

On June 20, Western News

reported on the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community

Board’s decision to quash the

removal of car parks outside the

Holmwood Rd shops.

The headline read – Businesses

influence decision to keep car

parks.

That was fair, however, I’d suggest

the headline could have read

– Reality influences decision to

keep car parks.

The plan and staff recommendation

was well-intentioned –

Installation of a pedestrian island

on Holmwood Rd and minor

works resulting in the removal of

six car parks from in front of the

block of shops.

Like any decision, there are

pros and cons.

In this instance my view, the

MEETING: (Left to right) – The Cook Shop owner Elizabeth Fry with David Cartwright, Jamie

Gough and Gerry Brownlee.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

board’s view, and overwhelmingly

the local community’s

view, was that the cons would far

outweigh any pros.

Gerry Brownlee, as local MP,

David Cartwright, as community

board chairman and I met with

the Holmwood Rd business operators

who were horrified by the

proposal.

No one wants safety compromised,

however, the “safety

enhancement” was suggested to

particularly assist road-crossing

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School students.

This was somewhat baffling,

given Rangi Ruru is on Rossall St

– they cross at that street, which

already has a pedestrian island.

Further to this, the lifeblood

of these local businesses is the

convenient on-street parking, so

affecting their viability for a solution

to a non-existent problem

seemed dubious at best.

Parking is already atrocious

here.

I’d suggest if it went ahead

you’d be creating an additional,

yet irrelevant, crossing path to

a block of vacant shops, as they

would probably go out of business.

The local community engaged

with local democracy and the reality

of the situation won the day.

Sometimes major overhauls

occur to ensure common sense

prevails but sometimes it’s deciding

to do nothing that proves to

be the best decision.

Jillian Nuth – Our traffic

is downright dangerous. It’s a

great idea but with my experience

as a pedestrian walking

everywhere, there’s just no way I

would cycle around this city.

Anna Henderson – I didn’t

know about this, would have

done it. Maybe publicise more?

Akio Asakura – Idealist

idiots. People buy cars to be

comfortable in their own space

– music, heater etc. Oh, we

should ride bicycles. No, people

who want to use trains, buses

and bicycles will. However, most

people drive cars.

Sarah Lashbrooke – I

never knew about it either unfortunately.

It sounds great.

Bronwyn Hendry – Maybe

the real question is – can people

who might use the pool afford

cycles? A bit of demographic

research may be indicated here.

Scheme may get second chance

•From page 1

One month did not measure a

trend, Mr Cartwright said.

“We don’t want a dot, we need

a line across several months and

then we can find out trends,” Mr

Cartwright said.

The initial trial in February

meant if you cycled to Jellie Park

five times, you received free pool

entry and a bottle of water.

There were 117 visits by

cyclists in the month, which

was deemed a success by Mr

Cartwright as well as board

member and chairwoman of the

Jellie Park Bike Initiative Project

committee Bridget Williams.

It was intended the scheme

would be rolled out across all

city council sport and recreation

centres, such as Pioneer and

Graham Condon.

“We need to think about how

we publicise it like notices in

the car park and where you lock

your bike up that says thank

you for cycling, have you heard

about our new incentive,” Mr

Cartwright said.

Ms Williams said it would just

take more time for the public

profile to build.

“I don’t see any harm in it

continuing, people just need a

wee bit of a carrot

. . . good things take time,” Ms

Williams said. The second trial

will have to be approved by the

city council before it goes ahead

in September.

PEDAL: The Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board

member Bridget Williams wants to see more bicycles in these

stands. ​

Council land

may become

pistol club

• By Julia Evans

AN EMPTY piece of land in

Templeton could become space

for a pistol, archery or paintball

club.

Or it could be turned into another

quarry for the area.

At last week’s meeting, the

Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

Community Board reviewed surplus

city council-owned property

in its area.

This included the 40469m sq

Templeton reserve.

It was previously leased out for

grazing. However, city council

staff said there was “some doubt

from a practical perspective” as to

why it was still being held.

“It seems to be a bit of a legacy

property.”

Staff recommended the board

consider it for a number of clubs

in the area looking for a location,

such as pistol, archery or paintball

clubs.

Staff also said: “There is interest

from an adjoining land owner for

quarrying purposes.”

The board resolved to have a

workshop to commence consideration

of the property review

process in the wards.

Rockquest winners

• By Julia Evans

RUN77 – a band made

up of five aspiring

musical talents from

Christ’s College – won the

Canterbury regional final

of Smokefree Rockquest.

The band is made up

of two brothers – George

and Angus Murray, Angus

Mossman, Henry Phelps

and Robbie Rolleston.

“We went mental,” said

guitarist and lead singer,

year 12 student Angus

Mossman.

In spite of, according to

Angus, some “questionable

dance moves and fist

pumps”, their many hours

of practice paid off.

The band practiced tirelessly

in the lead up to the

regional final. They were

at school at 7am every day

to rehearse, focusing on

musicianship as well as

stage presence.

The national finals are

on September 2 but the

more than 30 regional

finalists will be culled to

eight after bands submit 12

minutes of original footage

of video to the judges.

The eight finalists will

be announced at the end

of July.

Rock band tutor Nolan

Hungerford said doing well

in a band doesn’t happen

by accident.

“Before the boys video

their original songs on

Thursday, they will have

put in 30 or 40 hours

work,” Mr Hungerford

said.

The boys are currently

juggling practice with

internal assessment and

two were also in the school

production – Singin’ in the

Rain.

“If you want good

results, you have to put in

the proper work. Being in

a band is learning about

everything from how to

plug in your guitar, how to

hold an audience, how to

do a gig, as well as all the

ins and outs of the music

world,” Mr Hungerford

said.

• Continued from page 4

Judy Fanning – Who knew? Sadly I

missed the promo.

Tegan Osborne – The amount of

times myself or my partner has nearly

been hit because drivers aren’t looking

where they’re pulling out with those cycle

lanes down St Asaph St is crazy! It’s just

too dangerous because drivers and pedestrians

aren’t looking for cyclists. I feel safer

on a road without cycle lanes. But people

just need to watch where they’re going the

lanes are a good thing because it makes

thigs somewhat easy, it’s just the idiots who

need glasses..

Gavin Simon – Its winter. Not a good

time to cycle unless you are especially

dedicated. Wait for summer for the cycle

usage numbers to increase.

Kylie Mills – I bike... but its damn cold

I understand why it’s not used a lot yet...

the food court. If they took the cup away,

because we were teens and had little in the

way of common sense, it would have lost

its fun. Remove the free wifi and these kids

will get bored and go next door to the mall

where security might nab them (which

is probably the reason why they’re in the

exchange, I dunno).

Bronwyn Dobier – This is typical of

our country lately. Why do the scumbags

have all the rights and Joe Public gets

screwed over! People need to grow a pair

and deal with issues and make New Zealand

safe again!

Kevin Kiwibird – What about the

rights of people to quiet enjoyment of the

bus lounge or to walk the streets around

it without fear or intimidation? Don’t let

anywhere be held hostage by these slithering

idiots.

Paul Cull – I don’t get why the Bill of

Rights act would apply at the bus lounge.

Surely it is a waiting area available to

legitimate users of the bus service, and as

such neither an area for the “movement of

people” nor a “public place”? Just like they

have no legal right to hang out being obnoxious

brats in my living room, wouldn’t

the same principal of not being an open

public space apply to the bus lounge?

Great wig day

PUPILS FROM Cotswold School

donned their wigs to raise money

for a very worthy cause.

The school raised $632.40

during the recent Wig

Wednesday to raise money for

the Child Cancer Foundation,

which provides personalised

support for children diagnosed

with cancer and their families.

Every week, more than three

children in New Zealand are

diagnosed with cancer.

The Child Cancer Foundation

receives no direct funding from

the Government, so relies on

the generosity of the public and

• By Andrew King

A HUGE portion of the players selected

in the Crusaders under-18 development

squad have been picked from

Christchurch Boys’ High.

A 55-man team was named on

Wednesday with 21 of them coming

from CBHS, St Andrew’s and St Bede’s

St Andrew’s will host the players

in a training camp from Sunday to

REWARD: Villa Maria College student Navajo Prentice will

compete for New Zealand in cross-country in August.

Villa and Middleton students

make cross-country team

• By Andrew King

VILLA MARIA student Navajo

Prentice and Middleton Grange

student Sofia Kennedy have

been named in the New Zealand

team.

They will travel with the

12-strong team to Hobart from

August 12-14 to compete in the

Christchurch secondary schools

road race and Christchurch crosscountry

championships both held

in May and said it was her goal to

make the national squad.

“I am looking forward to wearing

the New Zealand singlet and

getting to know the other athletes

in the team,” she said.

Prentice has been coached by

Mike Riley for the past three years.

Leading up to her recent races,

she had been training most days

of the week along with competing

for North Canterbury in the Saturday

club cross-country races.

School sports director Jacqui

Restieaux said it was great to see

her hard work recognised.

“She has represented the school

over the last five years and just

quietly works away in the background.

She is committed and determined

but also very humble,”

she said.

Kennedy said she has been

focusing on basketball for the past

three years rather than distance

running.

She was named in the under-18

national basketball squad as a

BURNSIDE HIGH will

defend the Connetics Shield

tomorrow night after

winning it for the first time

last week.

Cold conditions could not

dampen the spirits of the

team dubbed the ‘beasts’ as

they celebrated their 3-1 win

over Lincoln High at the

Christchurch Football Centre,

where all league games are

played this year.

Coach David Williams said

the game was played in great

spirit.

“The boys were very happy

to end up with their hands

on the shield at the full-time

whistle,” he said.

It is the third time the

shield, considered the

Ranfurly Shield of high school

football, has changed hands

this season.

In an ironic twist,

Middleton, which held it at the

start of the season, will have

a chance to get it back when

they play Burnside at 5.45pm

tomorrow.

Meanwhile, St Thomas

have been confirmed in the

nationals tournament in

Napier in September.

They, along with Lincoln

High, Cashmere High and

St Andrew’s College, will

compete against the top 32

tickets

the Connetics Shield for the first time. Naweed Ahmadi

(below) showed off the prize.

teams for the title.

St Thomas will be on a high

when they run out against

Shirley Boys’ High at 4pm

tomorrow.

Coach Richard Washington

said it was a great effort and

a fitting way to send off the

year 13 boys who will not be

playing next year.

“Credit goes to the boys

for sticking to processes. So

far they have executed game

plans 99 per cent of the time

and really have formed a tight

team, it’s a family feel and

we all look after each other,”

Washington said.

He said they will need to

step up to finish the season

off and look towards the

tournament after that.

Riccarton High will have

a bye tomorrow, while

Christchurch Boys’ High

will play Christ’s at 7.30pm

after suffering a 3-0 loss to

Riccarton last week.

HOME & HEATING

Choosing the right heat

pump for your home

Whether it be a new build, or a retrofit,

most homes include at least one heat pump,

if not a whole heating solution. They can

provide cheap, clean heat and are much more

convenient than a log burner as you just need

to press a button. But how do you decide

what is best? Choosing the right sized heat

pump is key to ensuring optimum comfort

levels. Every situation varies and it is therefore

important to get professional advice from heat

pump experts.

The range varies from wall mounted high

walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems,

ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted

central heating systems allowing you to have a

very discreet way of heating your whole home

to a constant temperature throughout.

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that

is suitable for the size of the space you wish

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area

taken into consideration but also, insulation,

building orientation, windows and ceiling

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps

available with different heating outputs so it

is important to select the correct size for your

requirements that will handle the job but not

be unnecessarily overpowered.

Secondly, the location of your heat pump

is also extremely important. The cheapest

installation is a back to back where the outdoor

unit is positioned directly behind the indoor

unit however this is not necessarily always

the best option. It is vital that the indoor

unit is positioned in a place that will not be

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly

in their outdoor entertaining area or right

outside their bedroom window.

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands

have come and gone over the years but there

are a number of manufacturers who provide

reputable and reliable products. All brands

vary in their energy efficiency, quietness of

systems and price, so it depends on your

application as to which will be most suitable.

Major brands such as Panasonic, Fujitsu,

Mitsubishi, Daikin, Toshiba and Hitachi are

all reliable brands backed up by good technical

after sales service.

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an

accredited installer. This will not only ensure

correct installation of your heat pump, but

also validate the manufacturers warranty.

Other things to consider when choosing a

heat pump are time clocks, ease of use of the

remote controllers, air filtration and also wifi

capabilities.

Heating is a major investment in your home

and it is vital to get the right advice.

Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply,

installation and servicing of all major brands

of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers

ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as

to which system will suit your application

the best. Enviro Master Ltd offer a free, no

obligation quote and will come to your home

to see what is required. Visit our website at

www.enviromaster.co.nz.

The facts about

home ventilation

Balanced Pressure vs Positive Pressure

Under the New Zealand Building Code,

all buildings, including residential, need to

be suitably ventilated, either with opening

windows or forced ventilation. Clause G4.1

states: “The objective of this provision is

to safeguard people from illness or loss of

amenity due to lack of fresh air.” There are

many benefits to forced, or mechanical,

ventilation over opening windows, including

warmth, security, reduction of outside noises

and reduction of condensation.

Traditional domestic ventilation systems

are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in from

outside via the roof space and force the stale air

out through gaps around windows and doors.

The incoming air from these

systems has to be heated or

cooled to keep the house warm

in winter or cool in summer.

The Smooth-Air HEX390 is

a ‘balanced pressure’ system. It

extracts air from the house and

at the same time brings in fresh

air. These two streams of air

pass through a heat exchanger,

which warms incoming air in

winter and cools in summer if

air conditioning is being used.

This means that up to 80% of

the energy which would be

wasted using a traditional positive pressure

system is recovered, resulting in significant

energy savings and therefore lower heating or

cooling costs.

Until recently, balanced pressure ventilation

systems have been considerably more

expensive than traditional positive pressure

systems. However, with Smooth-Air’s unique

manufacturing capabilities, a HEX390

balanced pressure system can be installed for

a similar price as a traditional positive pressure

system.

Supporting your bowel and digestive

function helps prevent disease

It is most important to keep the

whole digestive and elimination

systems of the body working efficiently.

Otherwise toxins that have not been

eliminated set the stage for disease.

Many diseases have been linked with

micro-organisms (virus) or a bacterial

component. Generally these microorganisms

or bacteria can only survive

due to the fact that the environment

they are in is suitable for their survival.

Non eliminated toxins are probably

one of the main causative factors for

their survival. We know that when the

digestive system and bowel function

are poor we have many more health

problems. These include arthritis, digestive

problems like reflux and stomach pain,

bladder infections, chronic skin conditions

such as eczema, psoriasis and rashes, poor

eyesight, pain and inflammation, tumors

and a weakened immune system just to

name a few.

Nature’s Sunshine LBS II contains a

highly effective blend of natural herbs to

support the whole digestive system and it

is especially effective at cleansing the lower

bowel and intestinal tract. It is commonly

used for arthritis, constipation, diarrhea,

digestive problems, dry stool, fever, colds

and influenza, flatulence, gallstones, gout,

skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis,

urinary infections, liver dysfunction,

Candida, weakened immune function and

for people who want to keep their health as

good as possible.

The herbs in LBS II help stimulate the

production of digestive fluids and bile

for efficient digestion. This alone may

help prevent many diseases as a properly

working digestive system will itself

neutralise many disease causing organisms

before they have a chance to cause any

problems. LBS II also stimulates peristaltic

action of the colon effectively cleansing

the colon of any accumulated build-ups of

waste material. It also relaxes abdominal

cramping and spasms, enhances liver

function, purifies the blood, neutralizes

acidic conditions, helps destroy intestinal

parasites and worms, and fights infection.

Keeping your digestive system and

bowels functioning efficiently is definitely

an important step in obtaining and

maintaining good long term health.

LBS II and further information is

available from the Natural Health

Advisers at Marshall’s Health & Natural

Therapy, 110 Seaview Road, New

Osteoporosis is a serious condition

...but research shows it can be reversed!

Osteoporosis is not taken as a serious

condition by most people! Most people

don’t realise they have osteoporosis until

a fracture happens, as there are usually

no signs or symptoms. Fractures can

commonly be debilitating with chronic

pain and can lead to early mortality.

Fractures kill more women than all

gynaecological cancers put together and

one in six women taken to hospital with

a hip fracture, will not come out alive and

men fare even worse. Around one in three

women and one in twelve men are affected

with osteoporosis.

The most common osteoporotic fractures

are of the wrist, spine, shoulder and hip.

Vertebral collapse is a compression fracture

and causes back pain often with shooting

pains due to compression of the nerves.

Multiple vertebral fractures lead to a

stooped posture, loss of height and chronic

pain with reduced mobility. Hip fractures,

in particular, usually require prompt

surgery, as there is a serious risk associated

with it of deep vein thrombosis and

pulmonary embolism leading to increased

mortality.

Osteoporosis literally means “bones with

holes”. It occurs when bones lose minerals

such as calcium more quickly than the

body can replace them. Although calcium

is essential for bone health other minerals

like magnesium, zinc and trace minerals

like silica, boron, manganese, copper are

essential also. Vitamin’s D3 and K2 have

been shown to be essential in a bone

support program.

A less well known mineral strontium,

that is naturally found in your bones

has been researched and found in

four landmark studies to actually

reverse bone loss when sufficient other

nutrients are present. One study of 1,649

postmenopausal women with osteoporosis

who had had at least one fracture were

divided into two groups. Both groups

took vitamin D and calcium supplements.

One group were also given 680mg/day

of strontium. After the three year study

the strontium group showed an unheard

of average bone growth of 8.1%. This

study shows that osteoporosis can not

only be halted but may even be reversed

and without the side effects of common

osteoporosis drugs.

Further information on how to

support your bone density and overall

health is available from the natural

health specialists at Marshall’s Health

& Natural Therapy, 110 Seaview Road,

New Brighton, Phone: 388-5757. We are

Always Happy to Help!

BREAKTHROUGH AGAINST OSTEOPOROSIS

Osteoporosis, the weakening of the bone is a serious health threat

that often leads to severe pain, fractures & early mortality. Research

has found the bones can be re-mineralised & strengthened when

the required nutrients are present. Minerals calcium, magnesium &

vitamins D3 & K2 are essential but are not enough in many cases.

A missing link appears to be the mineral strontium.

Research shows strontium to positively affect bone density.

- Supports strong healthy bones, teeth & nails

- Is a naturally occurring mineral often lacking in the

modern diet

- Found in healthy bones & teeth but lacking in people

with osteoporosis

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.
