Students win

battle for

beards at

Lincoln High

• By Gabrielle Stuart, Georgia

O’Connor Harding

A BATTLE for beards could

open the door to rule changes

around facial hair at Selwyn high

schools.

Lincoln High School students

have won a year-long campaign

for facial hair, with the school’s

board of trustees agreeing to

drop its clean shaven-only rule as

a trial.

It came after a survey of staff,

students and parents at the

school found many supported

allowing facial hair.

Former Lincoln High School

student Andrew Hudson began

the campaign for beards last year,

putting a formal proposal to the

board of trustees last September.

He said it was about selfexpression.

“Many of the male

students who I discussed this

with viewed that the females at

high school had their own way of

self-expression by being allowed

to wear certain piercings, have

their hair styled in any way they

wished, as well as colouring it,”

he said. • Turn to page 7

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think high school students should

be allowed to grow facial hair? Send your views to georgia.

SELWYN TIMES

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

THAT’S A big call from Lincoln

High on our front page today –

senior students will be able to

sport beards at school.

No doubt this will spark a lot

of reader debate from those for

and against the move.

Students at the school have

campaigned for a year to be

allowed to wear facial hair.

No other Selwyn high

schools allow it but no doubt

other student groups will now

consider what has happened at

Lincoln and lobby for it at their

school.

And there will be competitions

amongst students as to who can

grow the whackiest or longest

beard. That’s when things could

start getting very hairy.

And what about the students

who still can’t grow a beard –

they’ll feel they haven’t yet made

the cut.

Lights ease congestion

Fashion


• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

NEW TRAFFIC lights on

Halswell Junction Rd have

been given the thumbs up by

Prebbleton residents who now

say getting into work is quicker.

The signals designed to ease

the congestion at the Halswell

Junction and Springs Rds

roundabout were switched on

last Thursday morning.

Gardening

Resident Karen Webb said the

lights have cut down her commute

by about half the time.

“It is certainly an improvement

until Rolleston traffic finds

out about it and stops using

Shands Rd and it will be back to

normal,” she said.

Another Prebbleton resident

Motoring

Graham Pye said the new traffic

signals have improved traffic

congestion considerably.

“Funny enough there seems

to be more traffic coming across

Springs Rd. That seems to be

holding up Halswell Junction

Rd traffic . . . they might need

to tweak timings on Halswell

Junction Rd,” he said.

weeks and getting feedback from

lights.

about 5min.

Until now traffic has been

backed up from the roundabout

to close to the Prebbleton shops.

Prebbleton Community Association

Committee chairman

Peter Hunter said anything to

improve traffic time through the

intersection is a bonus.

The $150,000 project was

designed to reduce delays for

people and bus passengers

on Springs Rd heading to

Christchurch by about 8min,

while the Christchurch Southern

Motorway Stage 2 is under

construction.

Often traffic is backed up for

more than 2km while people

wait for a safe gap to enter the

roundabout.

In Brief

PUBLIC PLACES BYLAW

The public will get the chance

to have their say on a new

public places bylaw to regulate

commercial activities in public

places. It comes after an increase

in mobile traders, particularly

food carts and vans who are

operating or seeking to operate

in the summer months. Under

the proposed bylaw no person

may carry out commercial

activities or organise events

in a public place without

consent of the district council.

Consultation is expected to open

in October.

is the chance to thank you and

recognise the community for

their ongoing support of this

project over the last three years.

But the job is not yet done, with

loans of $165,000 to repay and

ongoing operational levies and

costs approaching $200,000 per

annum. Mr Sunckell said the

committee needs continuous

support from the community.

SELWYN TIMES

Brendan Shefford

‘Big Red’ settles into real estate

Ray White town and

life principal Brendan

Shefford, also known as

‘Big Red’, has bought

the Lincoln Ray White

franchise. He spoke

to Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

What made you decide

to purchase the Ray White

Lincoln franchise?

I just bought our other two

operations in West Melton

and Rolleston. It made sense

to line up all three of them.

Lincoln is a growing place. All

of Selwyn is a growing place.

Ray White Lincoln co-founder

Steve Morgan and his wife

Leanne made their decision

where they wanted to sit back

and concentrate on day-to-day

sales as oppose to running the

business.

You have probably been asked

thousands of times but where

did the ‘Big Red’ nickname

come from and when did you

get it?

When I joined the New Zealand

Army 1999. I was big and

I have got red hair and that was

basically the end of it. It is a great

marketing tool.

What was it like being in the

NZ Army?

I was posted to Waiouru

Military Camp in 1999 after I left

school and joined the army. In

2001 I got posted down to Burnham.

I went to East Timor in

2002 and Afghanistan in 2005.

What was your main role in

the army?

When I was in the army I was

trained in the trade as a chef. It

was a pretty high energy diet we

followed.

Did being in the army

prepare you for the real estate

industry?

It taught you structure which

is exactly what real estate is

all about. Time management

especially in the army. You have

got three meals a day – breakfast

lunch and dinner. You knew if

you failed, you looked like an

idiot. It is your reputation on the

line.

Do you still do a lot of cooking

now?

I have got two kids now,

they are seven and eight and

my wife Sarah does most of the

cooking.

Tell me about your family, do

your children know what they

want to do when they eventually

leave school?

No, they are too young for

that.

Where did you meet your

wife?

In Christchurch. We got married

a few months before I went

to Afghanistan in 2005.

Was it hard being away from

your family while in the army?

It was but it makes you appreciate

the home comforts and

being home.

Was being based at Burnham

what made you want to live in

Selwyn?

Yes it was being based in

Burnham that made us eventually

end up buying in Rolleston. I

had a couple of rental properties

in Hornby as well. After being

in Afghanistan and having a

re-evaluation of life, I sold the

rentals and cleared the debts. I

have lived in Rolleston since I got

posted to Burnham.

Did you ever feel concerned

for your own safety while overseas

with the army?

You always were. In East

Timor we were peace-keeping

for the United Nations. In Afghanistan

it was quite volatile.

We were there five months. I was

based in Bamyan.

after life as an army chef

Would you ever go back to

Afghanistan if you had the

chance?

I would do. When they sort

their lives out it will be a great

place to go as a tourist.

What was the biggest lesson

you learnt from working in the

army?

Probably respecting people.

When you were in school what

about the NZ Army stood out

to you?

Being able to serve your country.

I grew up in Geraldine before

joining at 18.

Did you have any other interests

in high school before then?

I always wanted to be a chef

I guess and the army was the

way you could see it out, do your

trade and serve your country at

the same time. I always enjoyed

cooking.

How long have you been involved

in real estate?

Just over 10 years. We had a

couple of rental properties, I had

an interest in real estate.

What are some of the most

interesting moments you have

had so far in the real estate

industry?

The most interesting time was

the aftermath of the February

22, 2011, earthquake. Trying to

resettle properties after sales had

fallen over in the earthquake.

People were always going to

need somewhere to stay. Then

some of the best moments have

been selling large blocks of

land then being developed into

residential subdivisions and

seeing the end subdivision. The

growth of Selwyn has also been a

highlight.

What is longest period of

time you have had to work on

a person in terms of selling a

property?

I had a house on the market for

two years once. It was a higherpriced

property. Just hard work

– got the property sold.

Do you have any tips on selling

a house?

It has to be inviting. There is

nothing worse than when you

turn up to a property on an open

day and the owners haven’t lit

the fire, so it is cold. When you

are staging properties you hire

furniture. That looks fantastic.

SERVING THE

COUNTRY:

Brendan

Shefford in

Afghanistan.

What do you do in your time

off?

Whitebaiting, fishing and gardening.

I like fishing at Motunau

and whitebaiting in South Westland

where everyone goes, it is

fantastic. I went over recently but

it is just the start of the season.

You mentioned you enjoy

gardening?

Just the vege garden. I maintain

a good vege garden and fruit

trees. I am well-known in Rolleston

for lush green lawns.

Students win beard battle

•From page 1

Board of trustees chairman

Adrian Paterson said the board

had not yet finalised the conditions

around the trial, and that

was set to happen at the next

board meeting.

Mr Paterson said the trial

would run until the end of next

year, when the board would

evaluate it again.

“We will look at how many

students take it on board, and

whether any issues crop up.

The question is will it affect

their learning? And obviously,

we thought it shouldn’t, but we

may come across issues.”

Lincoln High School principal

Kathy Paterson said the

survey had shown opinions on

facial hair were divided.

She would not release the

survey results, which she said

were still being worked on.

“I would prefer to keep

the status quo, but that’s my

personal view. We’ve got to be

willing to listen to the voice

of students and parents, and

that’s what we’re doing,” she

said.

Ellesmere College and Darfield

High School still have a

clean shaven-only rule, while

Rolleston College is yet to

establish any rules.

Rolleston College principal

Steve Saville said the school

had not yet had to make a rule

about shaving, as it only accepted

younger students when

it opened this year.

“They’re only year 9s, so

they’d be doing well to grow a

beard,” he said.

The school would look at

bringing in a policy once the

students were older, he said.

Darfield High School principal

James Morris said there

had been no requests he was

aware of for a change in the

policy.

“However, if the students

brought it up and had a good

argument, then the board

would consider it,” he said.

Ellesmere College principal

Gavin Kidd said facial hair had

not been discussed as an issue

in the school’s regular uniform

reviews.

“It hasn’t been an issue with

the college. If there was an increase

in demand or requesting

of a review, we would be happy

to do that,” he said.

Secondary Principals’

Association chairman Phil

Holstein, who is principal of

Burnside High School, said

he expected more Canterbury

schools would have their policies

questioned because of the

trial at Lincoln.

“There has mostly been

consistency with uniforms, but

once you start varying from it,

more schools start to follow,”

he said.

A 16-year-old Hornby High

School student was suspended

two years ago for refusing

to shave. He chose to leave

the school and enrol in correspondence

school after the

dispute.

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

ANOTHER LIQUOR outlet is

making a bid to set up in Lincoln.

An application has been submitted

by SJTP Ltd for an off-licence

bottle store known as Liquorland

Lincoln to be opened on Vernon

Drive, near the corner of Gerald St.

Liquorland wants to operate from

9am-9m Monday to Sunday.

It is the second liquor store application

in Lincoln within a month.

Lincoln Bottle Shop wants to open

in Gerald St, about 100m from the

existing off licence, Super Liquor.

It has received 100 objections.

Super Liquor owner Gulshan

Gulati said the district council

should have rules put in place on

how many liquor stores are allowed

per population.

Mr Gulati said Lincoln is not big

enough for more than one bottle

store and he already struggles when

the university students are not in

town for about four months a year.

The population of Lincoln currently

sits at nearly 7000 and is expected

to project to about 9442 by 2025.

District council’s environmental

services manager Tim Harris said

the District Plan Review will look

at issues such as how many liquor

stores there are per population.

Local

News

Now

Liquorland wants to

set up in Lincoln

Fire rages, homes at risk

“A future review of the LAP might

also consider the number or density

of licensed premises in a particular

area,” he said.

Lincoln University is aware of

the application and considering its

response.

A spokesman said while it did

not make an objection against the

Lincoln Bottle Shop it has concerns

about the growing number of liquor

outlets in the town.

Lincoln High School principal

Kathy Paterson said the school

will lodge an objection against the

Vernon Drive liquor store.

“As a board we are saying we don’t

want these things to happen. Lincoln

has got enough liquor outlets

now as a small town,” she said.

Lincoln High previously objected

to the Lincoln Bottle Store application

on Gerald St.

SJTP Ltd director Sacha Fougere

would not comment on the application

because it was not Liquorland

policy to comment on any applications

whilst in process.

Objections close Wednesday,

September 27

DISCUSSIONS OVER getting

a bus service to Leeston are

back on the table again.

The issue of buses running

from Leeston through to

Christchurch was put to the

district council last week by

Leeston Community Committee

chairman Lloyd Clausen.

A presentation was also

made at the meeting by the

Selwyn Youth Council on the

Selwyn Link project.

The youth council is planning

to trial a bus service in

future school holidays connecting

Leeston, Darfield and

surrounding townships with

Rolleston.

Mr Clausen said the Selwyn

Link is a good first step but a

lot of people in general would

it was available.

Rubble halts further

progress on men’s shed

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

PATIENCE IS wearing thin

over slow progress for the

construction of the new

Lincoln Men’s Shed.

It has taken more than a

year for the shed, to be located

north of the Lincoln Rugby

Club, to get off the ground.

The men’s shed secretary

Myles Rea said it is waiting

for the district council to clear

a large amount of soil from

the site so it can commence

construction of the site.

“They promised to clear

some rubble from last July

. . . we hoped at the end of

last month we would have the

foundations down,” he said.

Members are now concerned

if the project is not

advanced quickly, it will lose

its funding.

The group which has received

funding from organisation

Pub Charity Limited for

its project estimated to cost

$70,000, has concerns it may

lose the money if progress

isn’t made.

Fifty thousand dollars was

WAITING: The Lincoln Men’s Shed has met further delays.

donated to the project from

Pub Charity Ltd in March

and the men’s shed was given

a deadline of three months to

have the foundations down.

“If the charity consider we

haven’t complied with their

consent who knows we may

have to pay for it ourselves,”

Mr Rea said.

But the district council’s

community projects and

facilities manager Cameron

Warr said the district council

cleared the site in February.

“The men’s shed subsequently

changed the design

of their proposed building,

which required the district

council to seek a variation to

the resource consent,” he said.

The resource consent was

granted in July and the district

council recently started

additional clearing to allow

for the revised design.

Men’s shed member Pat

Nicholas said while the

project has taken a while the

weather had not been kind to

the district council.

“We made some progress

around Christmas time

. . . that seems to move along

quite well and then it seems

to hit a road block every so

often,” he said.

Selwyn Times reported in

July last year discussions were

under way with the district

council for the men’s shed.

Mr Warr said the district

council had provided assistance

to the group since the

idea was put forward including

help with the establishment

of the committee, their

constitution and legal status,

and advice on funding.

Mr Rea said as well as

building the shed, it hopes to

eventually build on an annex

to have toilets, a meeting

room and kitchen.

He said while there are probus

clubs and walking groups

in Lincoln, there was nowhere

for a man to go have a yarn, a

cup of coffee and make a stall

or TV stand.

Although a shed is yet to be

built, the group has already

made a contribution of “book

boats” to Lincoln Primary

School for them to sit and

read in.

Bringing birds back to

Lincoln aim of planting day

STUCK IN: Lincoln residents planted 200 native

plants at Lincoln’s Liffey Domain in a bid to lure tui

and other native birds back to the area.

SELWYN TIMES

LINCOLN residents have

established another 200

native plants at Liffey

Domain.

The plan is for them provide

food and habitat for

native birds, insects and

other native fauna.

The event was led by the

district council’s biodiversity

co-ordinator Andrew

Spanton and Lincoln

ecologist Mike Bowie.

Lincoln Envirotown

Trust chairwoman Dr Sue

Jarvis said the current

trees such as oaks do not

provide any food for native

fauna.

“Many of our native bird

species need trees with

nectar-producing flowers

or berries for food and that

is why bellbirds, tui and

kereru are absent on the

majority of the Canterbury

Plains,” she said.

The plants and guards

were paid for by the

Lincoln Community Committee.

Dr Jarvis said the majority

of native herbivorous

insects such as the native

cabbage tree moth and

kowhai moth are dependent

on native plants for

their survival.

These insects provide

food for insectivorous

birds such as fantail, grey

warbler, and shining

cuckoo, as well as lizards.

Native insects also provide

important ecosystem

services such as pollination,

breakdown of organic

matter, biological control.

Dr Jarvis said stepping

stone plantings such as this

will help restore the dawn

chorus of birds that has

been missing for too long.

Residents are encouraged

to contribute to the

native life by planting their

backyard with species

including kowhai, flax,

five-finger, cabbage tree,

karamu and kahikatea.

Imagine having the

knowledge and skills

to help individuals and

families overcome challenging

situations in their lives. With

a degree in social work from Ara,

this can be your future. And we’ll

help make it happen - with

expert tutors, strong industry

connections and extensive

practical placement

opportunities.

Readers respond to

Selwyn Times article

on the noise issues at

Fond Farewell’s Pet

Crematorium

Graham Pownceby

– What the district council

fails to grasp is the fact it is

dealing with low frequency

noise which behaves far

differently than other

noise. They have a chart to

follow, likely construction

guidelines. I wont go into

the science, other than

suggesting the reporter

approach an acoustic engineer

for opinion.

Allan Taunt – A pet

cemetery would be much

quieter.

Kelly Boskell – All

factories make noise , just

tune it out. Like we had

to with the fire station

in Rolleston. We live just

down road from that we

just get over it and carry

on.

Julie Owens

writes about a new

pedestrian bridge to

be constructed over

the Liffey Stream in

Lincoln

The district council

will soon be applying

for resource consents to

construct a pedestrian

bridge and pathway link

over the Liffey Stream

between Ryelands

Subdivision and the

former country club site.

I am concerned that this

development could seriously

impact on the natural

environment which

has been diminishing as

Lincoln grows.

The natural landscape

that is known as the Liffey

Stream and reserve is the

Avon River of Lincoln and

it needs to be treasured by

the community as an important

area of green space

(and it is mostly).

I would like to see the

money put into better

maintaining this natural

landscape not building a

large structure across the

widest section of the pond

right in the middle of a

flight corridor and habitat

of many birds and other

wildlife.

The linkages that have

been developed in the new

subdivisions are an asset

for Lincoln but I feel this

bridge is unnecessary as

there are other pedestrian

bridges close by and it

doesn’t warrant the cost

and detrimental effects

that it would have on the

natural environment.

Kerbside collection reminder

A reminder to residents to please leave your rubbish bins on the kerb

when you put them out for collection.

The kerb is the safest place to leave bins, as bins left in the gutters,

on the road or behind parked cars pose a problem for our trucks –

especially in narrower streets where space is limited. Bins left on the

road make it difficult for the trucks to manoeuvre around and pick up

bins. Bins left in the gutter are also more likely to be blown over when

it’s windy, due to the slope of the road.

We appreciate residents helping out by placing bins on the kerb.

Take a breath of fresh air with over 50 free walks in Selwyn, Christchurch and Waimakariri as part

of The Breeze Walking Festival from 30 September to 15 October.

Three walks are taking place right here in Selwyn district in a wide range of environments:

Rakaia Gorge Experience – Tuesday 3 October, 10am–4pm

This walkway passes through several forest and shrub communities and along the rim of the gorge

through spectacular geological areas. This walk includes the site of the Snowdon coal mines and

remains of equipment used for extraction. The walkway forms an 11km loop back to the start, or

enjoy a burst of adrenaline and catch a ride back with Discovery Jet (at your expense).

Harts Creek Sneak – Thursday 5 October, 10am–2pm

This is a fantastic walk surrounded by native bush, flax lined creeks, open views and boarded

walkways. The walkway ends at the Bird Hide, a camouflaged hut for easy viewing of bird

and wildlife. It is a return track which takes approximately 20 minutes each way and is suitable

for buggies.

Hogs Back Hike – Thursday 12 October, 10am–2pm

Enjoy this new festival walk with canopies of beech tree forests, spectacular ridgeline views,

bridged creeks, traverses and 360 degree views of the Craigieburn forest. This 7.8km track is

well formed but is for the more adventurous hikers due to the challenging undulating ground.

Department of Conservation will join us to provide information about developments, wilding tree

control and more.

Bookings are required to join these free walks – to book please phone 347 2791 or email

events@selwyn.govt.nz.

For details see walkingfestival.co.nz or collect a guide from any Selwyn District Council facility.

ON THE

ROADS

On the roads this week

Rakaia Gorge Experience

Stabilised seal repairs are occurring on Goulds Road, Cossars Road, School Road

and Lincoln Tai Tapu Road. Culvert work will be carried out on Auchenflower Road,

Springs Road and Aitkens Road.

Shoulder repairs are occurring on Deans Road. Digout repairs will be carried out on

Leeston Road, Selwyn Road and Springs Road. Footpath repairs will be occurring

on Heathridge Place.

Upgrade work including kerb & channel and seal widening is being done by the developer on the east

side of Springston Rolleston Road south of Lowes Road.

Traffic controls will be operating at all sites.

Selwyn District Libraries opening

hours trial starting soon

From Labour Day (Monday 23 October 2017), the four Selwyn

District Libraries will begin a six-month trial of new opening hours.

The new trial hours have been developed in response to residents’

requests for improved access to library services.

Last year the libraries’ team conducted surveys and assessed

usage and peak times for each of the four libraries, at Rolleston,

Darfield, Leeston and Lincoln to assess community need. Further

consultation was then carried out earlier this year as part of the draft

Annual Plan.

Selwyn District Libraries Manager, Vicki Carlyon says public

feedback supported the idea of extended hours.

“Each of the four libraries have unique proposed hours. This will

enable greater access to library services at times convenient to

residents throughout Selwyn.”

With library hours extending into Saturday afternoons, programmes

and activities will be available in the weekends as well as during

the week.

Another benefit to the new hours is that some council services will

be available on Saturday mornings until midday at Lincoln, Leeston

and Darfield.

The trial hours include at least one extended evening per week to

allow access after business hours.

The first Saturday of the new trial hours, on 28 October will include

exciting launch events.

Over the next three months the Council will be installing water meters in Leeston.

The project is part of the district-wide rollout of water meters for all households on Council water

supplies. Around 86% of Council supply households across the district are already on meters.

Water meters are already fitted at most newer Leeston properties, and this project will complete

installations at around 520 households, starting in early October.

Metering has been shown to reduce water consumption as it links water use to charging – so

households that use less water benefit from lower charges, while those using more pay higher charges.

For properties where meters are installed, there will be some changes to the way water is charged.

In the year to 30 June 2018, Leeston properties will stay on the current system, paying a standard

district water rate of $391. This provides a base allocation 375 cubic metres per year (1m 3 = 1,000

litres). Households that use more than this in the year will also be billed for any water above the base

allocation at a rate of 44 cents per cubic metre.

From 1 July 2018, water charges in Leeston will move to the

same system used in other fully-metered areas like Rolleston

and West Melton. From this date Leeston properties will

pay a reduced standard water rate (currently $226), plus a

charge per cubic metre of 44 cents.

Households with average water use will find their total

charge remains similar to what they currently pay.

You can help avoid incurring extra charges by monitoring

your water use – see www.selwyn.govt.nz/watermetering for

more information and tips on how to read your water meter.

Country kicks off

CANTERBURY COUNTRY under-18

coach Glen Dunseath said there is fresh

talent and good size coming into the

squad, in spite of his team losing 29-25 to

Canterbury Metro Black on Saturday.

The loss in the opening round of the

South Island under-18 competition was a

reminder to his team that they have to get

out of the country mind set.

“Close enough is no longer good

enough,” he said.

“Both high schools [Lincoln and

Rangiora Highs] had really good UC

Championship campaigns.

“Probably the best they have had in a

long time.”

He said the opposition only won a few

more key moments in the game and they

have taken a lot of positives out of it.

Now the Country under-18 team turn

their attention to Tasman on Saturday

before a bye.

They then head to the knockout stages

of the competition which runs from

October 6-8.

Success for young

WEST MELTON School

pupils have walked away a

successful result from a speech

competition.

The school took part in the

Ellesmere Speech Competition

which was held at Prebbleton

School recently.

Pupil Daisy was awarded

first place for an outstanding

speech on brothers in the year 8

category.

The speeches had to be between

two-and-a-half to 3min with the

contestants choosing their topic

for a persuasive speech.

Twelve other schools competed

from the wider Ellesmere region.

West Melton year 7 pupil

Kaitlyn also took part in the

competition and presented a

speech on lying.

ROLLESTON SCHOOL pupils

are getting a buzz out of their

newly-donated bee house.

A new house for the leafcutter

bee was presented to the school

by Rolleston New World as part

of the 2017 Little Garden Promotion.

Pupils are making the most

of the spring, planting seeds in

their classrooms.

Information packs from

Rolleston New World said

leafcutters are a gentle breed

of bees that specialise in pollination.

They’re regarded as solitary

bees safe around children

and there have been no known

cases of anaphylaxis in New

Zealand as a result of a leafcutter

sting.

Growing the leafcutter

bee population is part of a

nationwide initiative with the

goal being to reach 15 million

bees in five years.

Southern ChiropraCtiC

3 kennedys bush rd, halswell (upstairs)

New premises for Southern Chiropractic

The move to bigger and brighter

premises means Southern Chiropractic

clients will feel envigorated when they

visit principal chiropractor Andre Grob.

“I have been based for 10 years in

Halswell so really wanted to find a

location that was still accessible for

my patients in this area and also easy

for those who travel further afield for

treatment,” Andre says.

The rooms are down the driveway

opposite Our Vet at Halswell on 3

Kennedy’s Bush Rd. There is plenty

of parking on the street in front of the

building which houses Mike Pero and

other businesses.

A generous waiting area has standing

room or low and high seating,

depending on where clients find it most

comfortable.

The treatment room is spacious

and allows those who are seeking

chiropractic care ample room to talk to

Andre about what they are experiencing

as well as a separate area for him to

treat you.

For those who may not be aware

chiropractic treatment isn’t just about

specialised spinal adjustment. The

effective use of low level laser treatment

for assisting in the healing of deep tissue

and joint problems has been used for

more than 40 years.

This treatment, which uses photo

stimulation of mitochondria in cells,

is able to penetrate into the site of

injury to promote healing and reduce

inflammation – relaxing muscles and

reducing pain.

Andre has seen how the non-invasive

treatment has resulted in impressive

results for his clients.

The treatment, which only takes 15

to 20 minutes, is especially effective

with muscle and joint pain, stiffness

associated with arthritis, neck and lower

back pain. It is approved by the FDA and

Meta analysis by the Lancet Medical

Journal also endorses the treatment

saying it can reduce pain intensity,

disability and the reoccurrence of pain.

Andre can also provide other treatments

including adjustments, exercises,

stretches and muscle therapy – to

readjust the body or help it heal from

conditions that are physical in origin.

These can include problems such as

back pain, muscle spasms, headaches

and poor posture.

It is also completely appropriate to

5 Warning Signs

receive chiropractic care even though

you may not have symptoms. Unlike

standard medical doctors who you

visit when you have symptoms that

need to be treated, chiropractors

offer adjustments to improve spinal

alignment and overall wellbeing – and

can prevent the pain or other symptoms

even starting.

ACC recognises chiropractors as

primary health care specialists when it

comes to spinal care so you do not need

a referral from a GP to seek treatment

for a back or neck injury as a result of

accidental causes. In the event of an

accident we can initiate a claim directly

and if it is accepted, treatment costs will

be subsidised.

Southern Chiropractic is located at 3 Kennedys Bush Rd and is open Monday,

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. on Tuesdays the clinic operates from Ashburton

Chiropractic in Ashburton.

For Tuesday bookings please phone 03 308 9516, or 03 322 1432. For all other

bookings at the halswell location, please phone 03 322 1432, email dre.nik@xtra.co.nz,

A FASCINATING and commonly

jumper (hypoblemum albovittatum).

With eight eyes, jumping spiders have

excellent eyesight which allows them to

jump with precision, making them very

mobile, especially on warm days.

Four of their eyes are forward-facing,

with the inside pair being large and

headlamp-like. The house jumper is a

harmless, 7-8mm long Australian immigrant

found around most of New Zealand

and as far south as Timaru.

The male differs from the female in being

darker overall and having a rectangle

of tan-coloured hair between its eight

eyes.

The spider is a generalist predator and is

often observed grasping insects they have

captured.

Sports legends’ comeback

CANTERBURY’S sporting

heroes will once again see the

light of day after Lancaster

salvaged.

What is next for the pillars,

which were created to recognise

Gardening

Canterbury rugby and cricket

greats, is yet to be decided.

The Canterbury Rugby

Football Union Historical Trust

has come into possession of the

26 rugby pillars, which were left

stricken at Lancaster Park ahead

of its demolition.

Warren Barberel, who is

leading the trust’s efforts to

salvage the pillars, says there are

a few ideas currently floating

around such as placing them

around Rugby Park.

Some of the former players

represented on the pillars, their

families and clubs have also

inquired about getting their

hands on some of them.

Tasty

Fergie McCormick, who still

Bites

All Black Tiny Hill and hardman

Alex Wyllie.

The historical trust has been

operating out of the old physio

room at Rugby Park for the past

two years, collecting Canterbury

rugby memorabilia.

The idea to set up the trust

came just over a decade ago

during the CRFU’s 125th

anniversary.

“The objective was to form

a little group and we would

attempt to get a hold of

memorabilia,” said Mr Barberel.

The trust currently has around

2000 items, which range from

programmes and jerseys to

boots, films and books.

“The dream is that we would

have a Canterbury rugby

museum,” said Mr Barberel.

“Let’s see what we might get if

we get a new stadium.”

The trust also has the 12

cricket Pillars of Pride, including

the likes of Richard, Walter and

Dayle Hadlee.

Canterbury Cricket are

expected to collect them shortly.

Ensuring a safe work place

Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe

work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the

wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that

in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues,

but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or

on to the sports field?

not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place

can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators

does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy

machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance

service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid

course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social.

take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high

risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that

they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability

to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course

of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium

risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a

spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight

hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and

26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings.

The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in

fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most

common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children

are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in

australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents

or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far

behind those in the workplace.

The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard

6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk

environments. This course covers many of the skills required to

deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result

in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes

such as motor vehicle accidents.

if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask

your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the

course content and give you options that will best suit your needs.

Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your

location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is

up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where

it is located.

Let the fresh air in and

keep the cold air out

Opening up the house on a summer’s day to let the

breeze flow in, is easy with the latest bifold doors and

designer range of sliders.

Ultimate Design and Renovation’s double glazed

windows and doors are streamlined yet produced

from thicker metal making them sturdier than other

products on the market and able to be made larger to

allow more sunlight and fresh air into the home.

This company also manufactures windbreaks and

conservatories, offering protection from wind while

capitalising on more sun.

“A modern windbreak or conservatory with double

glazing and an insulated roof is so warm it acts like

a second lounge especially when low-e glass is used.

Conservatories also add another room to the home

so handy when there are extra guests such as around

Christmas,” says Kelly Tyson who with husband Mike,

own and operate Ultimate Design and Renovation.

Ultimate Design and Renovation has been

manufacturing double glazed aluminium joinery for

a long time. As an independently owned company,

they are focused on producing high quality products,

ever-improving technology, and excellent service.

With them owning their own extrusion, they have

access to aluminium when needed, leading to quicker

turnaround times and competitive pricing.

The latest technology in the field is low-emissivity

glass which Kelly says minimises infrared and ultra

violet rays penetrating through glass while reducing

the heat lost through windows by as much as 30

percent. This translates to a cooler house in summer

and better retention of heat in the home in colder

weather meaning greater power savings.

The team at Ultimate Design and Renovation are

receiving more requests from customers for low e glass

– opting to spend a little more for the latest technology.

A low e maximum rated glass that has an insulated

spacer bar and is filled with argon gas is used, offering

better heat retention, less condensation and reduced

solar gain.

While conservatories need building consent and

some windbreaks (depending on size and where they

will be erected), an Ultimate Design and Renovation

consultant will be happy to visit you on site to advise

council requirements and then take care of the

consenting process, taking away any stress or hassle

for you.

Ultimate Design and Renovation has three fulltime

teams of installers so does not need to rely on

contractors. If wanting sliders, bi-folds or a windbreak

(that does not require council consent) installed before

Christmas, they can take care of this, if you book before

the end of October.

Get in quick and you may receive half price

installation, plus you may qualify for no payment

until September 2018. There are a limited number of

packages available and conditions apply.

Their skilled installers will work in with you and

respect your home, leaving it tidy during and after

installation.

You can contact Ultimate Design and Renovation

on 03 349 8951, email office@udr.co.nz, or via www.

Hours of fun with a home pool

Children have hours of fun in a pool and

if it’s in your backyard the family can enjoy

it together, entertaining or just playing, while

the littlies develop water confidence and

learn to swim.

More people are installing a home pool

giving children a reason to play at home as

well as having the convenience of not having

to travel to have water fun.

Lagoon Pools import and install high

quality fibreglass, salt water chlorinated

swimming pools, from basic pools through to

ones with extra features like lights, fountains,

a swim turbine or spa jets.

They also supply pool heating, chemicals,

pumps, filtration, pool cleaners, salt water

chlorinators, sanitation, controllers, covers

and rollers, water features, pool spares and

parts, chemicals, and test kits.

Imported from Leisure Pools in Australia,

each pool undergoes a post-production

strength test and comes with a lifetime

structural and osmosis warranty. Made from

Vinyl Ester (rather than polyester) these

pools are stronger and with six layers, one of

protective armour, they retain the heat.

Lagoon Pools owners, Julie and Warren

hold the dealership for Leisure Pools for the

South Island area south of North Canterbury

with their team installing throughout this

area.

They carry a wide range of stock, from the

12m pool, which is ideal for lifestyle blocks,

through to smaller pools suitable for smaller

sites that still offer exercise potential using a

bungee cord (also available at Lagoon Pools).

Lagoon Pools are also the New Zealand

dealers for the Elite Hideaway Roller, a light,

easy to use pool cover

that hides away under

the pool’s concrete

paving. If wanting an

automated system,

the slat pool cover

folds up with the

push of a button

and can be remotely

controlled via your

cell phone, as can

features such as the

pool’s lighting and

spa jets.

Pool cleaning is

also easy with a top

of the line robotic

cleaner. It works

along the pool scrubbing walls and filtering

the water as they clean.

The team at Lagoon Pools can be busy

leading into summer so if wanting a pool

in your backyard before Christmas, you will

need to get in touch very soon.

Julie can even assist with your council pool

consent, drawing up plans and completing

the application form (a service she provides

for free), with it taking around 20 working

days to obtain consent.

Once received, the Lagoon Pools team

are likely to be on the job within the month.

They will have the pool in the ground within

4-5 days leaving only the landscaping to be

completed which they can help with too.

For more information, call Lagoon Pools

on 0800 927 282 or 349 2160, email info@

lagoonpools.co.nz or check their website

[Edition SELWYN datE] TIMES 5

The perfect lawn

Now is a perfect time to lay a new lawn.

The ground is warming up and there is more

heat in the sun to encourage grass seed to

sprout and grow, helped also by morning

and evening dew. The latter reduces the

amount of watering needed and work you

need to do in looking after the new lawn.

If wanting some assistance with

preparation and laying a lawn, Canterbury

Lawns staff can help. From scraping a site

and removing building debris or taking

off surface weeds to ground preparation,

installing edging then laying the lawn, they

have the skill, experience and equipment to

do the job right.

They can also take care of your

landscaping needs from planning and

preparation as well as construction of the

elements to create an outdoor paradise for

you and your family to enjoy.

Before laying a lawn, they spray to

eliminate unwanted twitch, broadleaf

and other weeds, using the most effective

commercial spray for the job. After allowing

time for complete dieback of weeds, they

will return to prepare the ground before

applying Hydroseed or laying ready lawn.

Canterbury Lawns supply quality

screened top soil that will ensure a stonefree

and smooth base for the lawn.

“The aim is to have a firm base underneath

with a light fluffed-up top,” explains Kirk,

owner and operator of Canterbury Lawns.

Kirk says the advantage of spray-on

Hydroseed over standard grass seed, is its

ability to give a lawn a good start.

Canterbury Lawns uses only certified

seed, supplying the Hydro-mix to match

the lawn desired, taking into account the

area conditions and time of the year. Kirk

advises clients on the best mix for a given

job and provides an after-care brochure

with hints on how to care for the lawn so it

will stay lush, green and healthy.

If you prefer ready lawn, which is the best

choice in winter when the ground is too

cold and hard for grass seed to germinate,

Canterbury Lawns can take care of this too.

Canterbury Lawns will work with

another contractor such as Freeman

Irrigation, irrigation system specialists.

While installing irrigation before the lawn

is laid may add to the cost, it will mean less

water is needed to establish and maintain

the lawn over summer, also helping ensure

the lawn survives while you are away on

holiday.

“Money can be tight towards the end of

a build and sometimes people scrimp and

save on their landscaping with the result

that they end up with a poor quality lawn.

I like to work with a client so they get the

lawn they want within budget,” says Kirk.

Canterbury Lawns can be contacted

by phoning 347 4000 or emailing kirk@

canterburylawns.co.nz. You might

also like to check the website www.

canterburylawns.co.nz and Facebook

page where you will see lots of examples

Spring is in the air - it’s

time for landscaping

As spring flowers bloom and trees bud we are energised to think about outdoor living.

As spring flowers bloom and trees bud

we are energised to think about outdoor

living.

Before investing on landscaping, popping

your ideas on paper will help show what

can be achieved. A landscape professional

may be helpful too, suggesting options

you may not have considered or thought

too expensive or unachievable given the

outdoor area.

“A landscape designer may bring a

different perspective to the project,

suggesting alternatives that further

enhance an area without adding extra cost,”

says Sharon Crofts from Sharon Crofts

Landscape Design.

Sharon has years of industry experience,

first studying horticulture and landscape

technology at Lincoln University before

working in plant nurseries and for a leading

Christchurch landscape company before

launching her own consultancy.

Sharon works with homeowners,

consulting on-site to gather ideas before

drawing up landscape designs. Her

aim is to create garden settings that are

functional whilst reflecting the interests

and personality of her clients, as well as

meeting their budget.

Sharon offers a range of landscape design

services, including: landscape plans for

new and existing houses; planting plans;

proposals and pictorials; sub-division

developer landscape concepts or full plans;

elevations; construction details; sourcing

plants; organising landscape contractors;

and managing full landscape projects.

Sharon aims to create functional yet

aesthetically appealing gardens and living

spaces.

“Rather than simply following the lines

of a house, it is possible to create the wow

factor in an otherwise basic deck, without

breaking the budget,” suggests Sharon.

It could be as simple as adding shade

with a pergola, including raised planters, or

screening an area with fencing or a hedge.

It is also worth talking to Sharon before

BEFORE

installing a deck or paving as features such

as the way the steps are formed could make

a difference.

With smaller sections, Sharon says it is

important to determine the best place for

a courtyard and how to get the most out of

the yard. Input from a professional could

result in better utilisation of the outdoor

space available.

Engaging a landscape professional at the

time a new home is under-construction

can take advantage of contractors already

on-site. They might also construct the hard

landscaping features such as decks, planter

boxes, fences, walls and seating, saving

money as they do not need to come back

later. This will also put you ahead with your

landscaping before you move in.

With spring here, there is no time to wait.

From October on, landscape contractors

get booked up until Christmas. If wanting

a new outdoors area this year, getting onto

the job now will offer the opportunity for

your garden to be finished by Christmas so

you can entertain outdoors in a beautiful

setting this summer.

Science and technology

the answer to water quality

Using science and technology to inform sustainable

farming practices and reduce adverse environmental

impacts will have better outcomes than taxes will,

Horticulture New Zealand chief executive Mike

Chapman says.

Reacting to the announcement from the National

Party that it will invest $20 million in what was the

Sustainable Farming Fund and is now the Future of

Farming Fund, Mr Chapman said this would do more

in perpetuity than an arbitrary water tax.

“National made this announcement on a horticulture

property near Levin where science and technology are

being used to inform and enhance the environmental

sustainability of growing food,” Mr Chapman said.

“One of the Sustainable Farming Fund projects Don’t

Muddy the Water has a focus on keeping soil in the

paddock and out of the waterways – this is a win for

the environment and for farmers and growers.

“This research will quantify the effectiveness of

sediment control on cultivated land and is an example

of working proactively with regional councils.

“This property is also part of a three-year

Freshwater Improvement Fund project: Protecting

our Groundwater – Measuring and Managing Diffuse

Nutrient Losses from Cropping Systems.

“Environmental sustainability is paramount as it

relates to freshwater and horticulture growers are very

aware of this. This project will give us really useful

information to target on-farm management practices

to meet environmental expectations.

“Ultimately, we are looking to give growers the tools

to manage and reduce their environmental footprint

and long-term, robust data and science will allow us

to do that.

“Food consumers world-wide are increasingly

wanting information about the environmental impacts

of the food supply chain, particularly when it comes to

healthy food such as fresh fruit and vegetables.

“Our growers are mainly intergenerational family

businesses with a lot of collective knowledge about

cropping systems and the environment. Working with

them, rather than punishing them with taxes that are

not even related to good environmental outcomes, will

have the most positive impact on reaching whatever

targets a new government sets.

“Horticulture New Zealand supports sound,

consistent water policy to support efficient use of water

and we have issued our own such policy.”

and riparian planting are used

on horticulture properties to

keep soil in the paddock and

out of the waterways.

Six candidates up for

dairy board directorships

Two positions on DairyNZ’s board have

attracted six dairy farmer candidates for

this year’s director election.

From September 25, levy-paying dairy farmers will vote for their

preferred candidates – farmer colleagues whose experience and

leadership could help shape DairyNZ priorities and objectives.

Electionz.com returning officer Anthony Morton says levypaying

farmers will have a month to vote.

“The elected candidates will represent all dairy farmers on the

DairyNZ board, provide new leadership and have a real influence

on where and how the levy is invested,” Mr Morton says.

“So we encourage dairy farmers to look at who is running and

take the time to vote when the pack arrives in the mail at the end

of the month.”

DairyNZ’s board consists of five farmer-elected directors and

three board-elected directors.

The farmer-elected director positions are subject to a rotation

policy, with Alister Body and Jim van der Poel retiring by rotation

this year. After 12 years, Alister is standing down from the board.

The 2017 Board of Directors candidates are:

BROWN, Ian

Tokoroa

COOMBES, Grant Taupiri

GLASS, Colin Timaru

GROVES, Cole Ashburton

SLEE, Mark

Ashburton

VAN DER POEL, Jim Ohaupo

DairyNZ’s second 2016/17 election was

for its Directors’ Remuneration Committee

(DRC); however, no candidate nominations

were received for the position. DairyNZ’s

board will determine how this vacancy will

be filled in due course.

This year, farmers will also vote for

several resolutions – including one that

could change directors’ terms to three years

(from four years currently) and introduce

annual director elections.

Results from the Board of Directors

election and resolution votes will be

announced at the DairyNZ Annual General

Meeting in Rotorua on October 25.

In the meantime, farmers who pay a levy

on milk solids are encouraged to vote.

“Farmers will get their vote pack after

September 25 – it’s quick to cast a vote

online or by post and will show support for

dairy farmers looking to represent you,” Mr

Morton says.

TALL: Delphiniums will grow to 180cm.

DELPHINIUMS ARE not the

plant for every garden.

If you have a small garden

or like to grow things in pots,

then delphiniums are probably

not for you.

But for the right garden they

can look absolutely fantastic.

And the right garden is one

that can handle a bit of height.

Delphiniums will grow to a

whopping 180cm tall. They are

beautiful and bold and look

great in all sorts of different

style gardens.

Foxgloves and hollyhock

are two other tall plants which

look lovely grown with delphiniums.

And they also make

great cut flowers.

Delphiniums are perfect for

anyone wanting to fast-forward

the pleasure they receive from

their garden.

When you’re ready to plant,

choose a sunny, well-drained

area with rich soil.

Dig in a good quality compost

and animal manure fertiliser

and add plenty of mulch to

stop weeds forming and retain

soil moisture.

Pea straw, is a favourite

mulch of mine as it’s soft and

will rot down over time and

feed the soil. Plant each delphinium

around 50cm apart

from the next to give a bit of

space.

But don’t plant too far apart

as they create a great visual effect

if planted near each other

and they will provide extra

support.

Delphiniums like a drink, so

keep them well-watered and a

bit of liquid fertiliser will help

keep them blooming.

If you notice the foliage start

to yellow or the plant isn’t

growing very well – it often

means it needs more fertiliser.

In around late spring

(depending on whether you

planted seedlings or established

plants) you can expect to

see your tall flowers blossom.

As they’re short-lived perennials

they will flower every

year for around three to four

years.

Dead head your flowers (remove

the dead flower heads)

and this will help them flower

again in late summer, early

autumn.

School Holiday GARDEN Fun

With school holidays looming, and it being the

perfect time of year for growing, why not plan

some gardening activities for the kids! Here are a

couple of ideas to get you started.

• Plan and plant a flower garden. Add some

colour to the place with some of the beautiful

flowers that are out at the moment. Your local

garden centre will be packed with choices.

Make a day of it and get the kids to help you

choose what to plant.

• Raised veggie beds are a fun way to get kids

into gardening, and there are a multitude of

things that they can learn while they are at it.

Plan out where you want them to go, don’t

forget the plants will need sun!

• Raise seeds into seedlings to plant into your

raised beds. The kids will love to watch the

process of them going from seeds to seedlings,

and then into vegetables! Our Seed Raising

Mix is available in a 35L bag.

Got a question that you want answered?

Send us an email to info@igro.co.nz or

post it on our Facebook page!

While you are on a roll,

don’t stop there!

Adding a layer of bark mulch to the garden now will

help to protect your plants from the heat in the coming

summer months. Intelligro has a wide range of barks

available, so come down and have a look. By putting

a layer of bark on, you will not only help to suppress

the weeds, but you will also retain moisture in the soil,

reducing the chances of your plants suffering due to

drought. If bark isn’t your thing, we also have a great

selection of stones and chips that add character to your

garden as well. If your garden hasn’t had any compost

added to it recently, it is a good idea to add this and mix

through the soil prior to applying the bark or stones.

About Te Whāriki

Through years of research and planning, Ngāi Tahu Property and Lincoln University have developed this

land to honour its rich history and create an inheritance for future generations. The re-establishment of

healthy local waterways and native planting enhances indigenous biodiversity and makes for some

stunning views.

Te Whāriki refers to the ‘floor mat’ or lake bed of Te Waihora (Lake Ellesmere) – home to the rich

wetland and lake community. This symbolises a place for all to gather and meet. It is therefore fitting

that the Te Whāriki development seeks to build a community that weaves together the current

township, Lincoln University and future residents.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

The value

of an open

home

When selling a property, open homes are likely to be

part of the promotional mix but how effective are these?

When selling a property, open homes are

likely to be part of the promotional mix

but how effective are these?

“Open homes provide an opportunity

for multiple people to view a property

at the same time. This is convenient

for vendors and also benefits buyers by

allowing them to pre-plan which homes

they wish to view,” says Sarah Booth, coowner

of Ray White Rolleston.

Sarah says buyers feel more relaxed and

at ease when looking at homes in this

manner as it is a more informal viewing

platform. It also gives buyers a chance to

gauge other interest in a property.

When a number of open homes are

held on the same day, buyers have the

opportunity to see a number of properties

within one afternoon. They can compare

properties gaining an insight into what

will suit their needs. People may also

look at a property they might have ruled

out during an on-line search because it is

available to view. On actually seeing the

home, they may find it more appealing

than first thought perhaps because it has

higher quality features.

Open homes also allow buyers to view

properties just outside their price bracket

and this might lead to them extending

their budget to secure what they see as a

desirable property.

People who are considering selling may

visit open homes to meet real estate agents,

make comparisons with other houses on

the market, and to gauge asking prices.

For a seller, an open home channels

potential buyers through at a prearranged

time, which is convenient to them and has

been advertised online and in print media.

Weekends are the most popular

times for open homes, whilst viewing

by appointment can be at any time

convenient to the vendor and prospective

purchaser.

The time frame for an open home may

vary with many real estate agents now

limiting these to half an hour. Sarah says

this is plenty of time for viewers to have an

initial look then, if a buyer is particularly

interested, a private viewing can be

arranged.

A good agent will follow up with

everyone who has attended the open home

to get quality feedback for the vendor

and to ascertain whether there is further

interest in the property.

When selling a property it should be

presented to its best especially when

an open home is to be held. Sarah

recommends:

• de-cluttering and tidying up, clearing

surfaces such as kitchen benches with

pots, pans, plates and cutlery put away,

• hanging fresh clean and bright towels in

the bathroom and ensuring the vanity,

shower and toilet are all clean,

• turning on the lights,

• turning on the heating if the weather is

cold,

• clearing away pet bowls,

• giving the home a thorough clean inside

and mowing the lawns,

• putting away valuables, and

• having nice smells in the house like fresh

flowers and candles.

Weekends are popular for open homes.

Open homes allow more people to view a property at the same time.

Buying off the

plan – what you

need to know

Buying off plan requires all the same due diligence

and care as buying an existing property.

Buying a brand new home off the plans

can seem extremely attractive, especially

if you’re struggling to find a property that

meets all your needs. If you decide to go

down this route it is absolutely crucial

to enter the process with your eyes wide

open. Reading the fine print – starting

with the photo caption advising you that

‘some images are an artist’s impression’ –

is just the beginning.

There are many benefits to buying off

a plan. Not only are you signing up for a

new home that should meet all the latest

building specifications, but you are buying

something at a set price with an initially

low outlay. A long settlement period

(while the development is completed)

gives you time to get your finances in

order. In theory, if the market remains

buoyant then the property will increase

in value over this period so you will be

getting more than what you paid for at

the outset.

However, the process is not without

risks, says Kevin Lampen-Smith, chief

executive of the Real Estate Agents

Authority (REAA).

“If the market falls, then you may

encounter problems if you try to sell.

Also, the property may not meet your

expectations and the build may take longer

than expected. You are entirely reliant on

the developer, so you are at risk if their

business fails and/or the development is

on-sold to another company.”

Lampen-Smith says buying off plan

requires all the same due diligence and

care as buying an existing property.

“Start by putting in some solid research,”

he says.

“Don’t be swayed by pre-sale sweeteners

and flash show homes that may bear

little resemblance to the actual finished

product. Do your homework about the

developer and the construction firm – find

out what their track records are, examine

their credentials and look at any previous

developments they have been involved

in. Remember that you are giving these

people your hard-earned money and you

need to be confident that they will deliver

the goods.”

Generally, buying off a plan means

providing a deposit upfront to secure the

property. The remainder of the money

is due on completion, but you will have

to prove that you have the finance from

the outset. While the long lead-in period

provides time to save money, there is

also a risk that interest rates may go up

or lending criteria may change. Lampen-

Smith suggests discussing these issues

with your bank or financial advisor

to make sure you are prepared if the

situation changes.

“If a real estate agent is involved

in selling properties in a proposed

development, they can help you navigate

the process,” Lampen-Smith says.

It’s also important to engage a lawyer

to help you understand all the details of

the sale and purchase agreement and any

covenants on the title. These may extend

to the ‘look and feel’ of a development or

new subdivision, and include restrictions

regarding fences, landscaping, exterior

colour and cladding choices and may

even include car parking rules for you or

your visitors.

Developers will approach selling off

plans in many different ways. Some

contracts are designed to allow the buyer

to choose their own floor plan; others may

allow the developer to change the layout

without checking first. Every detail of the

property, from the expected timeline to

the finishes used, must be spelled out in

the contract.

It is vital to get legal advice before

signing anything, Lampen-Smith says.

“If you don’t go through these details

very carefully before you sign you may

be in for some unpleasant surprises later.

Remember to check the contract to see

if there is a ‘sunset clause’ that specifies

what will happen if the development is

not finished in time. Don’t forget to ask

what will happen if the developer goes

into liquidation and the project is sold to

another company. The last thing you want

is for your dream home, not to mention

your deposit, to vanish into thin air.”

The common good – what you

need to know about unit titles

Buying a property that shares

common areas with others is becoming

increasingly prevalent in New Zealand.

These properties can be apartments,

townhouses, units, retirement properties

or any other dwellings that share common

private access and utilities. When you

buy into a property like these ones you

have different rights and responsibilities

to someone who is buying a stand-alone

property on its own separate parcel of

land.

This kind of property ownership – in

a building development where there are

multiple owners – is known as a unit

title. It allows individual ownership of

parts of a single building, or of separate

buildings within one complex. Each unit

title is made up of three parts: ownership

of your particular apartment or unit

and any ‘accessory’ units, like garages,

private courtyards and storage areas; an

undivided share of the ownership of the

common property (lifts, laundries, lobby

areas, gardens) and an undivided share of

the ownership of the units if the unit plan

is cancelled.

“When you’re considering buying into a

complex where there are multiple owners,

there are some important additions to the

usual due diligence to-do list,” says Real

Estate Agents Authority chief executive

Kevin Lampen-Smith.

“A title search will help you find out all

the facts about the property’s ownership,

boundary and access, as held by Land

Information New Zealand (LINZ).

Remember to look out for easements

or covenants that may differ from your

understanding of the property, such as

rules about who can live in it, car parking

and access.”

A Land Information Memorandum

(LIM) will also show you information held

by the local council about the property

and land. Lampen-Smith suggests

getting an independent assessment of the

property, and the complex as a whole,

from an inspector who has professional

indemnity insurance and carries out their

work in accordance with the New Zealand

Property Inspection Standard.

As a prospective buyer, you are

entitled to three sets of information

from the seller, Lampen-Smith says.

These are:

1. A pre-contract disclosure statement,

which the seller provides before entering

into an agreement for sale and purchase;

2. A pre-settlement disclosure

statement, which the seller provides

after entering the agreement for sale and

purchase but before settlement of the sale;

3. An additional disclosure statement,

in which the buyer may request some or

all of the information the seller is required

to provide.

“These statements help prospective

buyers learn more about the property

and the rights and responsibilities they

will be signing up for if they purchase it.

However, they do not always provide the

full picture,” Lampen-Smith says.

Becoming a unit title holder means

you automatically become a member

of the complex’s body corporate, which

consists of all the unit owners acting as

a group. A body corporate has a number

of responsibilities relating to keeping the

property in good order, organising and

maintaining insurance, and making sure

owners keep to the rules as set under the

Unit Titles Act 2010, such as complying

with all laws and particular requirements

around noise and pet ownership, for

example, and keeping their individual

property in good order. Each unit

title holder pays a set annual amount

into a fund that looks after insurance,

maintenance and other costs. You should

be provided with a copy of the complex’s

body corporate rules in the pre-contract

disclosure pack. Read these carefully, as

they can limit what you may or may not

do with the unit you are interested in.

Each body corporate has an elected

chair (who must own a property in the

complex). A body corporate also must

have a Long Term Maintenance Fund

(LTMF) and a plan for dealing with any

issues that will affect all the members,

such as large-scale remedial works e.g.

upgrade lifts or insurance rate rises.

The Real Estate Agents Authority

(REAA) recommends asking for a

further set of information about the body

corporate to understand the financial

position of the complex as a whole. Ask

the vendor (or the selling agent) for a

copy of the minutes for all body corporate

general and extraordinary meetings

for the last three years, plus financial

statements and audit reports for the same

period. Find out if there are any unpaid

body corporate fees attached to the

property you are looking to buy.

“It’s also worth chatting to other unit

owners within the complex to see how the

body corporate operates,” Lampen-Smith

says.

Request to see the current Long Term

Maintenance Plan (LTMP) and examine

it carefully. These plans must be prepared

for a mandatory minimum of 10 years

and be reviewed every two years – it pays

to be cautious if the current LTMP is

near the end of its term, especially if the

complex is in a poor state of repair. You’ll

want to ensure the LTMF has the funds

required to finance the ongoing expected

repairs and maintenance detailed in the

LTMP.

As with any property transaction, legal

advice will be invaluable to help you weigh

up the pros and cons of the decision. It’s a

good idea to engage a lawyer at the start

of the process. If you don’t have a lawyer,

the New Zealand Law Society can help

you find one at propertylawyers.org.nz.

“There are no silly questions when you’re

considering a decision that will have a big

impact on your emotional, physical and

financial wellbeing,” Lampen-Smith says.

“It’s far better to do your homework in

meticulous detail than spend a lot of time

and money on an expensive mistake.”

property, visit www.reaa.govt.nz. If

you still have questions, call the Real

Estate Agents Authority (REAA) on

0800 367 7322 (please call 04 471 8930
