But the fields are set to be re-opened in time for the cricket season in October. The district council has decided to install the new irrigation system in a bid to fight the dry weather. The installation of the second stage of the system began last week. The first part of the $161,061 project was completed earlier this year, with the front fields now irrigated under an automated system. “We have already noticed grass growth and cover in the condition of the front fields,” Lincoln Event Centre manager Ginny Bowden said. She said the fields previously had to be manually watered meaning moving the irrigator up to three times a day during dry conditions. The new system aims to save time, money and labour. SUCH HAS been the demand for sections at Lincoln’s Flemington subdivision, that the developers are pushing ahead quickly with opening new stages to cater for this interest. Shane Kennedy, developer of Flemington, said that stages one to four and 14 are already sold, stage six almost sold and stage eight is selling rapidly. “We only put stage eight on the market a couple of months ago and already we have sold half of the 42 available sections. This means that we have had to start planning the proposed stage 10 earlier than expected,” he said. Set on 58ha, Flemington subdivision is planned for 650 sections, half of which have already been sold. “With its proximity to Christchurch, established schools and businesses, Flemington has attracted a diverse range of homeowners, from those looking to build their first homes to the more mature retirees, attracted by the sense of community and wonderful scenic views that Flemington offers. “The comments we are receiving from those buying Been paid out from EQC or needing a facelift?

We have also ensured footpaths are wide for ease of walking,” he said. A children’s playground and tennis court are already complete and extremely popular, while plans for a coffee shop and child care centre are progressing. “We have just opened a new show home village that brings together eight of Canterbury’s leading building companies – Online Design + Build, NEW LOCATION ADVERT.pdf 1 1/05/2014 11:51:35 a.m. VISIT OUR NEW LOCATION LOCATION Hours of Business: 7am-4.30pm Mon-Thurs Fri 8am to midday or by appointment with Keith 027 566 3909 DEMAND: Flemington subdivision developer Shane Kennedy surrounded by earthworks being undertaken as part of stage eight.
