SELWYN TIMES Latest Christchurch news at www. .kiwi Tuesday June 13 2017 7 News Ratepayers to pay for fence • By Georgia O’Connor- Harding A CONTROVERSIAL ratepayerfunded fence at Flock Hill Station has been given the go-ahead. The Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee has reconfirmed its decision to allocate $26,571 of its Immediate Steps Biodiversity Funding to section off a part of Cave Stream and 35ha wetlands at the station. The zone initially approved allocating $44,236 to the project in March but has since reviewed its Allen Lim decision. It comes after an application by Flock Hill’s leaseholder Flock Hill Holdings, owned by Jim Foster and Vince Saunders of Los Angeles-based Coast Range New Zealand, was made. It proposed fencing off Cave Stream as a way of mitigating the associated loss of biodiversity on the terraces. The landowners will contribute $22,000 towards the project. A final decision on the funding was held off at the zone’s May meeting after concerns more research needed to be done on the project. About five zone committee members travelled to Cave Stream last month to visit the site. The funding has since been reduced by $17,665 after the Flock Hill Station owners decided it wanted funding only for stage one and two of the project and not stage three. A ECan report said a revised farm plan deemed contribution stage three as not viable longterm. Zone committee chairman Allen Lim said stage three was the most controversial and costly part of the project covering the Cave Stream terraces. At the meeting, a verbal vote on the funding was made by each of the zone committee members. No objections were made. Mr Lim said the zone was comfortable with the project protecting rare species and would have most likely approved all stages. Selwyn Times reported in April the project was recommended by ECan’s own ecologist Dr Phillip Grove that it was not funded. Forest & Bird conservation GREEN LIGHT: The Selwyn Waihora water zone committee have confirmed it will allocate $26,571 of its Immediate Steps Biodiversity Funding to a controversial ratepayerfunded fencing project at Flock Hill Station. advocate Nicky Snoyink said while she found the public money being spent on American investors hard to stomach, she is pleased the fence will not go through DOC’s recommended area of protection. “We feel these landscapes are really vulnerable because there is a big push to farm every little bit of flat area available in the high country,” she said. •HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think of the approval to a ratepayer-funded fencing project at Flock Hill Station?
