Dad meets CDHB over son’s death

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

GREENDALE MAN Geoff

Booth has met with health

authorities over the death of his

son – but they have not been able

to tell him anything.

Mr Booth’s son Liam, 21, died

from suspected suicide on October

2, days after he had been

treated at Hillmorton Hospital.

Mr Booth (right) has filed a

formal complaint with the Canterbury

District Health Board,

and has now met with some of

their key managers.

LONG HOURS of training

two dogs to leap, weave and

race through challenging

obstacle courses has paid off

for Jess Tansey.

The Selwyn Dog Training

Club member walked away

as one of the most successful

dog handlers at the Black

Hawk New Zealand Dog

Agility Championships.

The national competition

was held in Kihikihi,

Waikato. More than 600

dogs engaged in about 6000

He asked them what had gone

wrong.

“They went really quiet, all of

them. They were upset,” he told

the Selwyn Times.

“They can’t tell me anything,

and they won’t tell me anything

before Christmas. And it is not a

quick outcome.”

Mr Booth told the managers

hospital staff had wrongly taken

Liam’s word he was not going to

harm himself.

He said the managers replied

that that was all they could do.

Liam’s body was found in

Beckenham Park, close to where

he lived.

About three weeks earlier he

had threatened to harm himself

at Halswell Quarry Park. Police

were called and he was taken to

Christchurch Hospital.

He was discharged and

continued receiving outpatient

treatment at Hillmorton Hospital.

Mr Booth said he was not going

to let the matter rest.

“We are not going to let this

lie, we are going to keep on

pushing,” he said.

“They certainly know they are

at fault and there is no fault from

our side. I did everything in my

power to keep Liam alive,” Mr

Booth said.

The CDHB would not discuss

the meeting with the Selwyn

Times.

He will write to Selwyn MP

Amy Adams and newly-elected

Minister of Health David Clark.

Liam’s death has been referred

to the Coroner.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK

GEOFF BOOTH has a long road

ahead of him as he strives for

answers over the death of his son

Liam.

Liam died of suspected suicide,

a terrible thing that leaves families

wondering literally forever why,

and more importantly, could it

have been prevented.

Geoff, from Greendale, has met

with district health board managers

(see page 1) but they were unable

to give him answers.

Geoff has laid a complaint over

Liam’s care. Liam had mental

health issues and was being treated

through Hillmorton Hospital.

Geoff believes Liam should never

have been in a situation to potentially

harm himself – given about

three weeks before his death he had

threatened self harm and was taken

to hospital by the police.

Time will tell whether Geoff gets

the answers he needs.

Good performance at dog championships

•From page 1

Rapid was not Jess’ only dog

to have its day, with her threeyear-old

german shepherd

border collie cross Swag

finishing with three thirds, a

fourth and a seventh in the top

class category.

The competition required

handlers to guide their dogs

through varied obstacle courses

in the fastest time possible,

without making mistakes.

The obstacles included tunnels,

ramps and jumpers.

Jess said it was the best

results she and her dogs had

achieved.

The 17-year-old had been

training dogs for as long she

could remember, first starting

out running her parent’s dogs

around courses before she properly

learnt to train dogs when

she was about eight.

She has been based Selwyn

Dog Training Club for two years

and has trained eight dogs so far.

She said the training takes a

lot of patience and it all comes

down to working out what motivates

a dog.

Jess said her two dogs’

personalities are the complete

opposites.

Swag is sweet, cuddly and

more trustworthy on the obstacle

course where as Rapid is fast,

“I have to get my mum voice

out,” she said.

She has found the most difficult

trick to teach her dogs were

weaving poles.

As well as taking on national

competitions, Jess spends her

time helping train beginner

classes.

“Without us there would be no

sport really because we have got

to get the younger generation in

on it because that will be who

is in sport in a couple of years

Reserve mural at school

A OUTDOOR mural capturing

the beauty of Mahoe Reserve has

been completed at Lincoln High

School.

The new mural located at

school’s tuck shop was painted

by the school’s sustainability

council over the school

holidays.

Over the past school holidays

students spent hours painting

the new mural designed by artist

and Springston resident Mike

Glover.

The students chose to embark

on the project as a way of

raising awareness of the school’s

sustainability council and to

demonstrate what the Lincoln

environment has to offer.

This ranges from native plants

in the Mahoe reserve to the

township’s church and Lincoln

being the first Envirotown in

New Zealand.

The project was supported by

the Lincoln Farmers’ and Craft

Market.

Year 13 student Amy Burney

said it taught students the

importance of working together

with the community to promote

awareness of the environment.

It was a tit-for-tat type of

Horse racing

McNamara is about to

embark on his busiest

time of the year – Cup

Week. He talks to

Gordon Findlater about

crossing the Tasman

from New South Wales

and living the dream in

Selwyn

You’ve been in Christchurch

for a while now. Have you

always been based in Weedons?

It will be eight and a half years

at the end of this year. We arrived

in July 2009. We started in

Mt Pleasant and rented a place

up there for a while and didn’t

really know where was where

when we first moved to Christchurch.

Then we bought a house in

Rolleston just prior to the first

earthquake. Our current place in

Weedons we’ve been in for nearly

three years.

How long have you been

calling races and how did you

get into it?

I started when I was about

15 and I’m now 39 so it’s been

a 24-year whack. I got a job at

the equivalent of Trackside in

OFF TO THE RACES: Canterbury race caller Mark McNamara at home in Weedons.

Australia straight out of school.

I had a cadetship there from 18

and it’s just gone from there. By

the time I left it was mainly just

race calling.

Is it something you always

wanted to do as a child?

I wanted to do it from the time

I was a really young kid, we’re

talking three or four-years-old.

I went away from it a bit in my

teens because it wasn’t cool. I

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

was lucky enough to get a break

when I was 15. I happened to

be at Randwick on Melbourne

Cup day because I was skipping

school and I got talking to a guy

and he was the judge at Bulli

trot trials (New South Wales). I

started calling at the trials there

and that was the start of 24 years.

Is there a race you called that

sticks out in your mind as a

favourite?

Terror to Love’s third cup

when he galloped away and it

looked like it was over. That will

always stick in my mind. The

Sydenham Hurdles was the first

race I called in New Zealand

in 2009 and I’d never called a

jumps race before, that will be

another I’ll never forget.

What about when things go

wrong?

A fog night at Addington is

always fun when you can’t see

anything. They put a camera on

the back on the mobile and you

end up calling most of the race

off a monitor and just hope you

can see something. Then they

pop out of the fog for about the

last 100m or 50m at the end. It’s

actually good fun, you just have

to enjoy it because you can’t see

but nobody else can either. It

ends up being a bit like a Lotto

draw.

What about a favourite race

meeting?

I love Cup Week. Obviously

as busy as it is, it’s a wonderful

week. Kaikoura Cup is my favourite

meeting of the year.

Why the Kaikoura Cup?

It’s just once a year, it’s laidback.

It’s the setting with South

Bay in behind and everyone,

whether they follow racing or

not, seems to know Kaikoura

is the place by the blue water. I

spent a lot of time at Bathurst

as a kid so that will always be

special to me as well.

Do you get cup day nerves?

I try to treat it just like any

other race at Addington, even

though it’s not. The adrenaline

is pumping. It’s a case of just

keeping calm and not going off

too early and just calling what

you see. Personally, for me, I

hope I’m happy with the job I

do on the race because it’s a long

12 months to wait for it to come

back around.

Do you own any horses

yourself?

I’ve got three broodmares here.

I own half a broodmare at Rangiora.

I just sold a two-year-old

to Aussie. I’ve got a yearling here

and a trotter down south. So too

many.

What about outside of racing,

what else are you interested in?

I watch a lot of rugby league,

I’m a massive Sharks fan. Also

touch footy on a Tuesday night at

West Melton is always good.

The Cronulla Sharks NRL

title last year would have been a

highlight then?

Yes, I never thought I’d see

the Sharks win a premiership,

so if they never win another one

in my lifetime then I’ve already

seen more than I thought I

would. I’m also lucky with my

job, the hours are pretty flexible

so I get to spend plenty of time

with my kids and mill around at

home. I’m pretty much a homebody,

as my wife Katie and I are

usually home.

You have children? What’s

life like at home?

A boy and a girl. Will turns

five next February and Bronte’s

two and a half. They’ve got a

pony each. There’s four chickens,

two adopted roosters that sneak

in from down the back, two dogs

and a cat.

Was it hard making the

adjustment to living in

Christchurch after moving

from Aussie?

It was pretty good because

the traffic is so much better

over here. I know it can still get

pretty busy in peak times, but

compared to Sydney, it’s a dream

to get around. The weather didn’t

take too much getting used to

because I spent plenty of time

growing up in Bathurst. They’ve

got pretty similar weather

conditions there – it gets cold in

winter and can snow. Over all, I

settled in pretty well and Katie

was the same.

You talk about growing up

near Bathurst. Do you like

motorsports?

No, doesn’t do anything for

me. Although, I don’t mind the

formula one. I’d love to go to the

Monaco Grand Prix, but no, the

V8s don’t do anything for me

whatsoever.

Can you ever see yourself

doing anything else; what’s the

expiry date on a race caller?

As long as we’re doing a good

job, it’s basically when we die

(laughs). When the lungs give up

or when the memory goes because

it’s all done on the memorising

of the colours. While the

brain’s good, the eyes are strong

and you’re calling accurately it’s

your job almost for life.

I’d imagine it’s a job that

requires a lot of research. What

do you do leading up to a race

meeting?

I’ll wander through the stables

before the meeting just in case

anyone gives me a snippet of information.

It might be someone’s

birthday or a pronunciation of a

horse. I’ve usually done my tips

the night before and then it just

comes to memorising the colours

just before each race. Ideally, I

can call the race off memory or

without looking at the race book.

HOMEBODY: McNamara with

his two children Bronte and

Will..

What’s your pick for cup day

then?

It’s Lazarus’ to lose. He’s just

too good, he’s the ultimate

professional. His preparation

has been faultless. Heaven Rocks

looks like he could have been a

danger but he’s just too goofy.

Any other picks for the week?

I hope Te Akau Shark takes

out the 2000 Guineas on the

first day at Riccarton because it’s

part owned by Cronulla Sharks

captain Paul Gallen. I try not to

have too many favourites but I’ll

definitely be cheering for him.

That must a busy week for

you. Do you get much sleep?

It’s manic, especially from the

Tuesday to the Saturday. You call

Addington, go home and go to

bed, get up and look at the field

for Riccarton on Wednesday,

call that, go to bed, then get up

and go to Ashburton on the

Thursday. It’s the same routine

for Addington on Friday and

then it’s Riccarton on Saturday.

I’ve then got a gallop recap show

on Sunday. You know it’s coming

and it goes by pretty fast really.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Growing Darfield brings issues

Lincoln University

students have

undertaken a planning

project if Darfield was

to expand. Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

reports

THE POPULATION of the once

quiet Darfield has begun to soar.

But with more growth comes

more problems, a new Lincoln

University report shows.

Back in the 1970s, Darfield’s

population barely stretched to

900.

For years the small country

town remained under the radar,

but was commonly characterised

as “the township under the

nor’west arch” after the arch of

cloud often spotted west of Darfield

when the

wind blew across

the Southern

Alps.

But with a

population

projected to reach

nearly 4000 by

Karen

Johnston

2025, what was

once known as a

service town for

farming and the rural community

is now starting to boom.

Darfield currently has a population

of about 2000.

Long-time residents such as

Malvern Butchery owner Pat

McKay describe it as “the gateway

to everywhere”.

Located in the Canterbury

Plains, Darfield is a main town

leading to the Waimakariri and

Rakaia rivers and onto the West

Coast.

“We have got a Fonterra plant,

brick works and we have got a

sawmill. How many towns in

New Zealand can say they have

got that?” Mr McKay said.

The rapid development of the

Central Plains Water Scheme has

also helped to transform Darfield

into a busy hub.

The growth in the town,

originally known as White Cliffs

BUSY: Darfield is an expanding town that will mean solving infrastructure issues.

PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS

Junction then Horndon Junction,

has been viewed as positive.

Mayor Sam Broughton said the

developments in the town have

allowed new people to move into

the area and a lot of investment

had been put into the main

streets of Darfield.

He said the new Challenge

Darfield and a new shopping

centre in McMillan St had been

completed recently along with

the expansion of Farmlands.

But more growth comes with

more problems – as outlined in a

new planning project on Darfield

by a group of Lincoln University

students.

The project, identifying issues

and options for the growing

area, was presented by masters

students Richard Sheild, Hilary

Riordan and Mithran Gopinath

to the district council.

The project was assigned by

the district council.

The student’s presentation

showed growth was partially

due to the town’s conversion

to dairy farming and a shift of

population from the Canterbury

earthquakes.

Fonterra’s plans to have two

new cream cheese plants completed

by 2020 was also identified

as bringing in more people as it

created new job opportunities.

But key issues halting the

town’s growth included the lack

of a sewage system, lack of space

for commercial expansion and

low housing density.

Mr McKay, who is also Darfield

Community Committee

chairman, said planning for

the sewage system should have

started years ago.

“You have got to look 10-20

years out . . . you make the decisions

for tomorrow today,” he

said.

He said while there is no science

to prove Darfield needs a

sewage system, it needs to get

into the district council’s longterm

plan to be addressed.

Darfield is the largest township

in New Zealand without a

reticulated sewage system.

Lincoln University adjunct and

contract senior lecturer Karen

Johnston said the district council

asked the students to look at the

township because it is a community

that could have potential

issues.

Options to address the sewage

problem included a new sewage

centre which could also service

Coalgate, Glentunnel and Kirwee.

“I think that is a big political

question for the district councillors

to address, because if they

move to a reticulated system,

then the people who have invested

in septic systems already

are going to have to move over,”

Dr Johnston said.

She said the issue is whether

Environment Canterbury will

continue to give consents for septic

tanks rather than requiring

the district council to install a

sewage system.

ECan’s principal consents adviser

Paul Hopwood said it can’t

refuse consents for septic tank

systems in advance of a reticulated

system being installed if the

discharge on groundwater can be

managed.

“Until a reticulated wastewater

system is installed, property

owners or developers can apply

for resource consent for on-site

wastewater discharges,” he said.

Mr Broughton said the district

council has a working party researching

the reticulated system

and has been unable to identify

any health or environmental

reason for it.

He said while a system could

have advantages for the businesses

on the main street, it would

come at a high economic cost.

Two Rivers Community Trust

community services stream

manager Bev Elder said any

movement of rates to pay for projects

such as a reticulated system

can be desperately difficult for

some residents.

“Many of them are living lives

of desperation now, deciding

between should I pay the rent

this week or the food this week,”

she said.

Mrs Elder said it is easy to

think of Selwyn as a rich territorial

area, but there are pockets in

the district which are not.

She said the district council

should be making decisions for

all kinds of demographics rather

than being led by developers and

people with money.

Changes which it could make

included allowing studio flats on

the back of houses available for

people at lower rents and more

emergency housing options.

Other options discussed in the

students presentation was for

Darfield to maintain low density

housing around the perimeter

to retain a rural feel and leave

high density housing close to the

central business area.

COLORFUL EXPLOSIONS: The Rolleston fireworks display from last year.

Fireworks displays

to light up Selwyn

• By Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

ORGANISERS OF

Selwyn’s two major fire

works displays are gearing

up to light up the sky in

celebration of Guy Fawkes.

After the Rolleston and

Motukarara fireworks

shows were deemed

successes last year, both

events are set to take place

again this Saturday.

It was estimated 15,000

people attended the

display held at Foster

Park last year while about

3000 people attended the

Waihora Domain.

Rolleston Fireworks

Committee chairman Jens

Christensen said it is a

fairly big night costing the

organisation $70,000 to

put the event on.

He said in the 19 years

he has been on the committee

it has evolved

from having $2000 for

professional fireworks to

$30,000.

“The rest of the cost is

BIG EVENT: About 15,000 people attended the

and things like that,” Mr

Christensen said.

It estimated the fireworks

display will run for

15min choreographed to

music.

Both Rolleston and Motukarara

will have schools

and community groups

selling food and treat as

fundraisers.

Mr Christensen said the

Rolleston event also has

an awesome sound stage

allowing the opportunity

for youth Selwyn bands to

play music.

“Constantly we get

told it is better than New

Brighton . . . the public

is very close to the fireworks,”

he said.

Buses will also run from

Rolleston to take people

back into Christchurch

following the event.

Selwyn residents like the district

Fire rages, homes at risk

CONTINUING growth

and development has been

highlighted in the district

council’s annual report for the

2016/17 year.

The report, adopted at the

district council’s meeting, shows

Selwyn’s population is now

estimated to be 56,000 with

growth expected to continue in

the coming years.

The district council achieved

86 per cent of its performance

targets for the

year with 70

per cent of

residents rating

the district

council’s

overall

performance as

“good” or “very

good” in this

Sam Broughton

year’s residents

opinion survey.

Building

activity has remained strong

with 2527 building consents

issued during the year, to a total

value of more than $600 million.

Mayor Sam Broughton said

the district council is supporting

the growth with investment

in services, infrastructure and

community activities across the

district.

Selwyn people value the

quality of life they enjoy here,”

he said.

“As a district council, we are

working hard to protect and

maintain that, and help residents

and businesses make the most

of the opportunities our district

offers,” he said.

A project was launched this

year to update the Selwyn

District Plan, which controls

the activities allowed on

different properties, guides

future development and makes

provision for protection of the

district’s environment and

heritage.

Progress on Rolleston’s town

centre also took a significant

step forward, as ministerial

approval was granted to

allow redevelopment of part

of Rolleston Reserve for a

library, community space and

commercial and retail centre.

Foster Park in Rolleston

has been expanded with a

new hockey mini-turf, along

with three new sports fields,

additional landscaping and the

design and development of a

children’s playground.

Car parking extensions here

and at the Selwyn Aquatic

Centre will support the growing

importance of these facilities

as district sport and recreation

hubs.

In Darfield, the redevelopment

of the skate area at Westview

Park was completed, while the

Leeston skate bowl was also

revamped.

Earthquake strengthening of

district council facilities is now

mostly completed with work at

Darfield Library finished this

year.

The new Dunsandel

Community Centre, which

replaces the former hall

damaged in the September 4,

2010, earthquake, was largely

completed during the 2016/17

year and is now in operation.

Significant roading projects

included the opening of the new

2.6km Coalgate to Glentunnel

cycleway and the construction of

530m of new footpaths.

Other projects were the

upgrading of Masefield Drive,

Rolleston, the extension of

Broadlands Drive and the

installation of a new roundabout

at the junction of Springston

Rolleston and Broadlands Drive.

Water service projects included

the continued installation of

water meters on properties

connected to district council

water supplies, which will result

in properties paying a reduced

fixed water rate plus a volumetric

usage charge.

Water supply improvements

are helping to provide higher

quality water for our growing

population, while a number

of improvements to water

treatment systems were also

completed.

Through the year, the district

council administered more than

$268,000 in discretionary grants,

and delivered more than 100

community events across the

district.

Highlights included the

successful launch of CultureFest,

showcasing the district’s diverse

cultures, which was held in

conjunction with Rolleston’s

150th anniversary celebration.

The Annual Report notes the

impact of the Port Hills fire, with

the total rural firefighting cost

to the district council calculated

at $7.9 million. The majority of

the cost ($7.4 million) has been

covered through insurance with

the Rural Fire Fighting Fund.

Expenditure for the year was

$105 million, compared with a

budget of $94.6 million.

The main variances included

finance costs being below budget

due to reduced borrowing, the

unbudgeted costs associated with

the Port Hills fire, and the higher

cost of sales from Izone land

sales being well ahead of budget.

Revenue for the year was

$169.8 million compared with a

budget of $120.9 million, largely

due to growth being ahead of

forecasts.

Rates revenue was above

budget, while growth also

contributed to higher than

expected revenue from

development contributions and

vested assets.

Development contributions are

retained for future infrastructure

provision and cannot be used to

reduce rates, while vested assets

are a non-cash item and are also

not available to reduce rates.

The district council received

higher dividend revenue from

investments in Orion New

Zealand Ltd and Transwaste

Canterbury Ltd, while land sales

revenue was also above budget

due to sales in Izone being ahead

of forecasts.

The value of the district

council’s net assets increased

by $110 million for the year to a

total value of $1.503 billion.

The full 2016/17 Annual

Report will be published in late

November.

Sports trust going strong

Selwyn Sports Trust

executive officer Michael

Wilson writes about the

growth of the trust over

the past five years

AT THE beginning of 2013,

Selwyn Sports Trust was born on

the back of weekly community

running group, the Ellesmere

Road Runners, and the annual

Selwyn Running Festival.

Six sports enthusiasts had

joined forces to create the trust

with the goal of promoting and

supporting participation in sport

and recreation within the district.

The nearly five years on, the

trust’s growth has replicated that

of the district it is trying to serve.

There are now two additional

annual events – the Lake

Crichton Triathlon and Duathlon

Series and the Koru Games.

There are also three additional

weekly community running

groups – Lincoln, Malvern and

Rolleston road runners – and

four activators engaging with

26 schools and more than 6500

students on a weekly basis.

The growth is set to continue.

Recently the trust was at the

district council to share the

story so far and put a longterm

funding submission to

councillors.

EVENTS: Selwyn Sports Trust

executive officer Michael

Wilson is looking forward

to the trust’s final annual

event of the year, the Selwyn

Running Festival, on Sunday.

This was part of the trust’s

long-term goal to diversify and

solidify some of its funding

streams in order to continue

the growth of its services and

operations. The full-time

executive officer and four parttime

activators are currently at

capacity and to action some of

the many new ideas additional

capability is required.

Up next for the trust is the final

annual event of the year – the

Selwyn Running Festival – on

Sunday. As the founding event

for the trust it holds a special

place in its calendar.

The flat courses in all four

race distances – 21.1km, 10km,

5km and 1400m kids dash –

allow participants from all

backgrounds and of all types to

achieve their goals on race day.

Based out of Leeston and

Southbridge, it really is a fantastic

day in the country.

On the trust’s horizon is

continued growth through

involvement in a Bikes in

Schools/Bike Skills programme

for primary-aged children.

There is also continued

development of the activator

initiative and the possibility of

additional events, growth and

development of all current

events.

All of which will feed the

ultimate goal of having a

wide range of sporting and

recreational opportunities within

Selwyn to encourage ongoing

participation.

District council shouts barbecue

Fire rages, homes at risk

SELWYN residents will get

free barbecue food as a way of

encouraging neighbours to get

to know each other.

The mobile barbecue will

travel across Selwyn to 18

locations as part of the district

council’s annual Meet Your

Street programme.

As well as a free barbecue,

the street gatherings will

include music and games for

children.

District council connecting

communities co-ordinator Tyla

Harrison-Hunt said the event

is a chance for neighbourhoods

to get together to catch up with

those nearby and make new

friends.

“These gatherings encourage

neighbours to feel part of

their local community, and

are especially important

for residents new to Selwyn

to settle in and form new

relationships,” he said.

The gatherings all take place

on Tuesdays between 5.30-

7pm.

Invitations will be dropped

into mailboxes the week before

the gathering.

To give more Selwyn

residents the chance to meet

their street, the district council

has funds available for those

keen to organise and host their

own street gathering.

A subsidy of up to $75

is available for each street

gathering.

Anyone who lives in a

neighbourhood in Selwyn can

apply for the subsidy, which has

increased from the $50 offered

last summer.

The gathering can be a small

group of neighbours or a whole

street.

It may be held at the local

reserve, playground, or in a

backyard.

The district council is also

running a competition to

give away a bonus Meet Your

Street event to one lucky

neighbourhood in Selwyn.

The Meet Your Street team

will provide staffing, a mobile

barbecue, drinks (nonalcoholic)

and burgers for up to

50 people.

Bugs that spit

Mike Bowie is

an ecologist

who specialises

in entomology

(insects and other

invertebrates).

Each week he

introduces a new species

found in his backyard at

Lincoln. His column aims to

raise public awareness of

biodiversity, the variety of living

things around us

WITH THE days warming up, spittlebugs

are becoming common around the

garden.

The green coloured nymphs excrete

a very conspicuous frothy, spit-like

foam that is used as protection against

predators and dessication by the sun.

The white spittle is produced from a

gland at its rear and bubbles are created

by farting into the liquid. The spittle also

helps to regulate temperature extremes

and has an acrid taste, which deters insect

predators.

Globally, there are about 2400 species

of spittlebugs or froghoppers, but in New

Zealand only 15 species are known. They

are not considered serious pests of the

garden.

Spittlebugs have been reported on a

large range of hosts, including species

like parsley, lavender, carnations,

chrysanthemums, roses, strawberries and

grass.

The most common species in New

Zealand is the meadow spittlebug

(philaenus spumarius), an exotic species

first recorded in 1960.

The frog-faced adults are six to 10mm

long, tan, mottled brown to black in

colour, and can jump 70cm when

disturbed. Relative to body weight, this

jumping effort is better than fleas and

equivalent to humans jumping 180m.

WOW: Spittlebugs

produce a white spittle

and bubbles are created

when it farts into the

liquid. (Below) – What

The Council’s Annual Report for 2016/17 has highlighted Selwyn’s growth and development, as

the population passes 56,000 and continues to climb.

Mayor Sam Broughton says the report shows the Council is supporting this growth with

investment in services, infrastructure and community activities across the district. “Selwyn people

value the quality of life they enjoy here,” he says.

“As a Council we are working hard to protect and maintain that, and help residents and

businesses make the most of the opportunities our district offers.”

The Council achieved 86% of its performance targets for the year, the same as last year, while

70% of residents rated the Council’s overall performance as good or very good, an increase of

5% from 2016.

Building activity remained strong with 2,527 building consents issued during the year, to a total

value of over $600 million. A total of 607 resource consents were issued, with 98% processed

within the statutory 20 working days.

Significant roading projects included the opening of the new 2.6km Coalgate to Glentunnel

cycleway, the construction of 530 metres of new footpaths, upgrading of Masefield Drive,

Rolleston, the extension of Broadlands Drive and the installation of a new roundabout at the

junction of Springston Rolleston and Broadlands Drive.

Foster Park in Rolleston expanded with a new hockey mini-turf, along with new sports fields,

landscaping and development of a children’s playground. Car parking extensions here and at the

Selwyn Aquatic Centre will support the growing importance of these facilities as district sport

and recreation hubs. In Darfield, the redevelopment of the skate area at Westview Park was

completed, while the Leeston skate bowl was also revamped.

Water services projects included the continuing installation of water meters on properties

connected to Council water supplies, water supply improvements to provide higher quality water

for our growing population, and a number of improvements to water treatment systems.

A project was launched to update the Selwyn District Plan, which guides future development and

makes provision for protection of the district’s environment and heritage. Progress on Rolleston’s

town centre also took a significant step forward, as Ministerial approval was granted to allow

redevelopment of part of Rolleston Reserve for a library, community space and commercial and

retail centre.

Through the year the Council administered more than $268,000 in discretionary grants, and

delivered over 100 community events across the district. Highlights included the successful

launch of CultureFest, showcasing the district’s diverse cultures, which was held in conjunction

with the Rolleston 150th anniversary celebrations.

Overall the Council’s financial position remains sound. Expenditure for the year was $105 million

compared with budget of $94.6 million. Revenue for the year was $169.8 million compared with

budget of $120.9 million, due to higher than expected levels of growth. The value of the Council’s

net assets increased by $110 million for the year, to a total value of $1.503 billion.

The full 2016/17 Annual Report will be published in late November.

Meet Your Street returns for

summer

The third annual Meet Your Street programme is set to kick off in

time for summer.

Selwyn District Council’s mobile BBQ will be visiting 18 different

locations around Selwyn providing free street gatherings to

encourage neighbours to get to know each other.

The gatherings all take place on Tuesdays between 5.30–7pm.

Invitations will be dropped into mailboxes the week before the

gatherings.

For a full schedule of Meet Your Street gatherings go to www.

selwyn.govt.nz/meetyourstreet or check out the Facebook page.

To give even more Selwyn residents the chance to meet their

neighbours, Council has funds available for those keen to organise

and host their own local street gathering. See the Council’s website

for more information and full terms and conditions.

Council is also running a competition to give away a bonus Meet

Your Street event. The team will provide staffing, a mobile BBQ,

drinks (non-alcoholic) and burgers for up to 50 people on Sunday

10 December from 11am–1pm. Applications open 1 November and

close 24 November. Visit www.selwyn.govt.nz for the full terms and

conditions and to enter the draw.

Check the ‘Meet Your Street Selwyn’ Facebook page for event

information, photos and wet weather postponement details.

Fun for all at local libraries

The new Selwyn District Libraries trial hours have begun and

exciting family-friendly activities are planned for every Saturday at

all four libraries.

Libraries Manager Vicki Carlyon says the extended Saturday hours

mean programmes and activities will be available in the weekends

as well as during the week.

“We wanted to provide a range of fun and interesting activities for

everyone to enjoy on their Saturday afternoons. There’s something

for all ages on offer,” she says.

The ‘Time for Fun’ activities will differ each week between the four

libraries, beginning this Saturday 4 November.

Events include Lego ® , Christmas crafts, giant colouring in, board

games, to BeeBots, tech sessions, Storytime and Rhymetimes. Mr

Yipadee is performing this Saturday – see the events listing for details.

information on which activities are taking place near you.

On the roads this week

Reseals will be carried out on Days Road, Goulds Road, Heaton

Drive and Old Tai Tapu Road. Traffic controls will be operating.

These are pre-reseal repairs with the reseal over the full seal width

being done later in the summer. Digout repairs will be carried out

on West Melton Road and Curve Road. Please stop on request at

these sites.

Footpath works will be occurring on Murray Place and Petticoat

Leeston-Southbridge go top in country cricket

• By Gordon Findlater

TWO WICKETS in the opening

three overs from opening bowler

Tim Field helped Leeston-

Southbridge go to the top of the

Canterbury country premier

one-day competition.

Leeston-Southbridge’s fivewicket

victory over Darfield-

South Malvern at the weekend

also means that they are now

the only unbeaten team in the

competition after four rounds.

Field finished with figures of

4/30, while Dougal Munro (3/6)

and Tim Gruijters (2/5) were

unplayable at Leeston Park.

Darfield-South Malvern got

off to the worst start possible

with Field dismissing Nick

Jenkins lbw for a duck with the

fourth delivery of the match.

Sean Carston was then bowled

by Field two overs later for just

one run, leaving Darfield-South

Malvern stranded at 4/2.

The visitors made a mini

recovery to be 38/2 in the 13th

over. However, Field, Gruijters

and Munro took four wickets

between them for just one run

to have Darfield-South Malvern

at 39/6.

The tail end chipped in with

39 runs between them before

their side were dismissed for 115

in the 39th over.

Leeston-Southbridge got off

to a solid start in their run chase

with openers Toby Doyle and

Liam O’Sullivan guiding their

side to 43/0 in the 12th over

CAUGHT AND BOWLED: Tim

Field celebrates the last of

his four wickets.

before both falling in the space

of four deliveries.

Gruijters then came to the

crease and would be the anchor

of the innings, finishing unbeaten

on 32 as Leeson-Southbridge

completed the five wicket victory

in the 28th over.

David Beatty and Chris Warner

were the best of the bowlers for

Darfield-South Malvern, both

taking two wickets.

Leeston-Southbridge will look

to remain unbeaten when they

play Lincoln at Lincoln Domain

on Saturday.

SPORTS

BOWLED: Haigh Jebson

swings and misses against

the bowling of Tim Gruijters.

Round four results:

Oxford 162/8 (45 overs) lost

to Weedons 164/6 (35.3

overs)

Southbrook 145/10 (40

overs) lost to Lincoln 151/4

(29.1 overs)

Sefton 147/9 (45 overs) defeated

Cheviot 70/10 (25.2

overs)

Darfield-South Malvern

115/10 (38.3 overs) lost to

Leeston-Southbridge 116/5

(27.2 overs)

UNPLAYABLE: Dougal Munro (bowling) finished with figures of

3/6 from his six overs.

BIG HIT: Darfield-South Malvern’s Chris Warner plays and

expansive shot through the onside.

Successful

event for

budding golfers

A NEW event run by Canterbury

Golf attracted more than 50

children aged four to 13 years to

Templeton Golf Club over the

weekend.

The fun event was played over

nine holes using a shortened

course with holes varying in

length between 100 and 200m.

Special large 8in holes were put in

the greens for the event making it

lots of fun.

“The event was really successful

attracting many kids that were

trying golf for the first time along

with other children who had been

learning golf and keen to take

their skills onto the golf course

for this fun event,” said Canterbury

Golf development manager

Rachel Thow.

“It’s an area we would like

to develop further to provide

opportunities for these children

to become more engaged with golf

and have fun playing events.”

The youngsters also received

a few tips from the Canterbury

boys under 19 team who were on

hand to help guide the groups

around the course. A great day

out for the kids and their parents

who assisted to caddy for the

round.

TAILENDER: Haigh Jebson (batter) just avoids an edge to the

bowling of Tim Field.

COMMITMENT: Liam O’Sullivan dives to stop the ball.

ALMOST: David Beatty looks back to see if Matt Ling has

caught his edge.

COVERS: Anoop Surendran plays Jack Thorp through the

offside.

PETS & PAWS

The best care for your pet

If you have a dog who is at home all day

while you are at work, it can lead to them

being bored, lonely and even destructive.

Having a place where you can take your

dog – where it can socialise, play and even

swim, means your dog is kept engaged,

stimulated and comes home happy and

tired.

At Bunny Lodge Doggy Day Care many

dogs visit regularly – some for just a day or

two or others for the whole working week.

This provides the dogs with the physical

and mental stimulation, plus company,

that they love and crave while you are out

working all day.

It can prevent the holes dug in the

vegetable garden, chewed irrigation lines,

or reports of barking that sometimes greet

you with a guiltily wagging tail.

The dogs get to participate in all the fun

–– they get to run and play in acres of green

grass and trees, plus their very own large

swimming pool to frolic in. Doing what

dogs like to do in the fresh air! Each dog

also has his or her own unit, with a bed, for

rest periods during the day.

If you start work early don’t worry, here

you can drop off your dog with access

through the pin-code entry point and you

can place your dog in one of the units.

Bunny Lodge Doggy Day Care

is owned by Stephen and Justine

and is part of the whole Bunny

Lodge business situated at 540

Jones Road. This is the largest

boarding kennels and cattery in the

South Island. They can also look

after birds and rabbits while you

are away on holiday.

With five full-time staff employed

as well as additional contractors

who come in during busy periods,

you can be satisfied in the knowledge

your pet will be well cared for

whether it is there for a day visit or

for an extended period of time.

They also do emergency care, so if

you unexpectedly need to leave your

pet, they can make provision for your

dog or cat to stay you can drop them

at the 24/7 monitored drop point.

Bunny Lodge is open Monday to

Friday 8am to 10.30am and 3.30pm to

6pm, Saturday 9am to 12pm and Sunday

8am to 10.30am and 3.30pm to 6pm. for

MY PRIDE AND JOY

SELWYN TIMES

Vital service provided by St John in Selwyn

Volunteer Team Manager, Samantha with Rolleston’s

Turn-Key model ambulance.

St John attended 213 call outs within

Selwyn in September, the Rolleston team

attending 180 of these; 129 for medical

conditions and 20 to accidents (mainly on

the roads).

“Demand for St John services varies

with Rolleston handling more call-outs,”

advises Samantha Phillips, Volunteer Team

Manager of the Rolleston Station Volunteer

team.

Overseeing Selwyn’s and Ashburton’s

St John stations is Territory Manager

and Intensive Care Paramedic, Ian Rex.

He looks after the area’s six stations’

operational and managerial responsibilities

like performance, stakeholders, accident

reporting, compliance and complaints.

Between 7am and 7pm, a paramedic,

EMT (emergency medical technician) and

often a volunteer or trainee man Rolleston’s

station, with four employees rostered four

days on/four days off. Volunteers crew the

ambulance after hours.

Rolleston’s ambulance is a Turn-Key

model, introduced in 2010 to ensure

consistency of design and equipment

placement in all ambulances.

It is a diesel 2-stage turbocharged

intercooled Euro-5 6/V cylinder 2015

Mercedes Sprinter 319 CDI, rear wheeldrive,

seven-speed automatic, with a side

door for increased accessibility. Produced

in Germany, it was kitted out in Hamilton

with purpose built drawers, cupboards and

shelving for storing equipment like splints,

oxygen, and other medical supplies. Its

Intensive Care Paramedic, Ian Rex oversees the St John

Selwyn and Ashburton stations.

total cost exceeded $225,000 and annual

running costs are around $1million.

All St John vehicles have an MDT (Mobile

Data Terminal), an AVL (Automatic Vehicle

Locater) that maps the journey and records

the speed travelled, a radio communication

system, and a reversing camera.

Before every shift, St John response

vehicles and equipment are critically

checked. The vehicles, which have an eight

year’ lifespan are also rotated around the

district for increased efficiency and cost

savings.

In the future, Rolleston will likely move

to a single stretchered Gen2 ambulance

(introduced in 2016), which has many

innovative and practical features including

being designed to keep ambulance officers

safer as they treat and transport patients.

Its most revolutionary new feature is the

automated Powerload Stryker Stretcher

System with a 318kg capacity. This helps

reduce lifting injuries, a quarter of which

involved stretchers last year.

Rolleston also has a FRU (first response

unit) vehicle, a Ford Mondeo allowing

volunteers to quickly respond to callouts.

St John’s Clinical Control Centre’s

computer-aided system dispatches both

vehicles so the Rolleston team sometimes

assist crews outside Selwyn.

In 2014, St John introduced yellow

ambulances and additional reflective

signage after research identified this colour

as the most visible on the road.

Ambulance officers are highly trained

and tested on driving under lights, siren,

and transporting patients safely. They

can exceed the speed limit if lights are

flashing and siren is on, depending on the

priority of the call-out. If an ambulance is

travelling slowly with lights flashing, a very

sick person is likely being transported to

hospital and ambulance staff are attending

them.

Selwyn Motor Fest

A St John Turn-Key, Gen2 and older

ambulances will be on display at the

Jones Rd Auto Selwyn Motor

Fest and Family Fun Day

Jones Rd Auto is the naming rights

sponsors of the Selwyn Motor Festival and

Family Fun Day. This festival which will be

held on 26 November not only showcases

and provides an exciting day out for all it is

also the fundraiser for the Rolleston branch

of St John’s Ambulance.

“We really wanted to come on board with

this as we see this event for those who love

cars and a wonderful event for all the family

to enjoy, but more importantly helping out

St John’s Ambulance who provide such an

important and vital service to all members

of our community,” says Lisa.

“This is an exciting event and we are

thrilled to be a part of it.”

Lisa and Nigel have a fond admiration for

classic cars with the couple owning six now

– four Holdens, a Valiant and a Celica.

“We have both had cars from a young age,

we love them and Nigel really loves working

on his and other peoples’ in the Jones Rd

Auto workshop as well,” Lisa says.

Lisa’s wedding car, the Celica, is one she

will never part with. Not only was it her

first ever car but it is how she met her future

husband when he worked on it.

Thomas Costello, from the organising

committee, said that Jones Road Auto

and the Fleck’s were totally the right fit for

naming sponsors. “We are all about local car

people coming together to hold an awesome

family event and support our Selwyn St

Nigel & Lisa Fleck

John, Jones Road Auto are a local family

owned business that share our values”.

Not only happy to support the Jones Rd

Auto Selwyn Motor Fest & Fun Day, Nigel

and Lisa have recently been involved, in

partnership with the SDC Driver Safety

and Lincoln & Districts Community Care,

in running car maintenance courses for

restricted and learner drivers. These courses

teach the basics of car upkeep using a

checklist including how to change a tyre and

also educating drivers on the way they drive

their car and how it can impact on its wear

and tear.

Lisa is hoping they will continue delivering

complimentary courses once a month to

those who want to learn these skills and

will be open to teenagers or those wanting a

refresher on basic car maintenance.

Jones Rd Auto can service and repair

all makes and models of vehicle from

the small runabout, larger family SUV,

motor home through to small commercial

vehicles. Whether you need a warrant of

fitness, vehicle servicing and repairs, auto

electrical diagnostics or engine overhauls

– the team at Jones Rd Auto is here to

assist.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Scented plants to

Sue Witteman says we often choose plants for their visual appeal, but

picking them for their perfume can be equally pleasing

SCENTED: Luculia comes in both pink and white and is worth a

spot in your indoor plant family.

WE OFTEN don’t think about

scent until it wafts up our

nostril and catches us unawares,

and then we remember how

important it is – the olfactory

tentacles reach out, memories

are triggered and we remember

when that particular scent

linked us to a person, place or

experience.

The word ‘evocative’ is an

overused adjective when it comes

to scent, but it really does fit the

sensory experience. Not only is it

a link to the past, but it can also

lift your mood in the present,

and create a boost of happiness

or contentment.

While fragrance may be

considered more often when

thinking about or planning

the outside garden, it is often

overlooked when it comes to the

inside. In an effort to rectify this,

let’s look at the plants we can

grow inside, and in doing so, add

another layer of enjoyment to our

living environment.

When thinking about scented

plants, it is helpful to divide them

into those that will be inside with

us for a short time, and those

that will be there long-term.

Short-term plants would include

flowering bulbs such as hyacinths

and narcissus bulbs, lilies

(Christmas or Easter), the sweetsmelling

Primula malacoides, and

the well-known lily of the valley.

After flowering, these short-term

plants are usually either planted

in the garden or chucked out.

Then, there are the plants

that will live with us long term,

and these are the ones we shall

concentrate on. Note that some

of the plants may be ones that are

somewhat common when grown

outside, but when brought inside,

they take on special significance.

SCENTED PLANTS TO TRY

Hoya carnosa (wax flower) –

This climbing or hanging plant

has waxy, star-shaped white and

pink flowers accompanied by

smallish dark green leaves.

The flowers give off a honeynectar

scent, and an older plant

can be covered in these blooms.

Provide good light, but keep out

of direct sun to avoid leaf scorch.

Hoyas require well-drained

potting mix and to be fed diluted

houseplant food every couple of

weeks, especially when in flower.

They also like to be root bound

(my favourite kind of plant), so

don’t be in a hurry to repot them.

There is also a green-flowered

hoya called Hoya serpens.

Jasminum polyanthum

(jasmine) – Known for their

desire to grow and for their

strongly perfumed flowers, this

jasmine has pink buds which

open to white flowers.

Pinch out or cut back the

shoots to stop any unruliness and

to keep it bushy, and provide a

structure or wires for it to grow up

or around so that it doesn’t turn

into an irksome monster; this will

ensure you stay in love with it.

Place in bright light and keep

moist during the growing period.

Also try J. azoricum, whose

elegant pure white flowers I

particularly like. There are also

a couple of variegated jasmines

including J. officinale ‘Aureum’

and J. polyanthum ‘Cream

Glory’, which not only look

fresh with their cream or yellow

variegations, but also aren’t as

rampant.

Prepping the garden

For ThE SummEr monThS

Applying the bark

After you have dug through Organic Compost, give it a

water. If you wish to use weedmat, do this now but make

sure that you apply it correctly. It needs to create that

barrier so the weeds stay away. Using pins or staples to

hold the mat down is going to help immensely with this,

so don’t skip this step. Choosing your bark mostly comes

down to a personal preference, so come down and have

a look at what we have. Our team can advise you on

which is best if you have specific requirements for the

area that it is going on. We do recommend a depth of

10cm to get the maximum benefits from the bark.

Water

Watering the bark after it has been applied will help to

settle it on your garden. A pattern for watering should

be established, so that the garden doesn’t dry out, and

so the bark stays put.

Weeding

As the weather warms up even more, the weeds

will be popping up more frequently. It is important

to remove them regularly, so they don’t take

over the garden and compete with your plants

for space, water and nutrients. When you have

removed all the weeds, add Organic Compost in

to the soil. Dig it through your soil and it will help

to provide some much needed organic matter,

as well as aid in water retention help to promote

worm activity.

If you have any questions, please

feel free to call our team, send us an

email to info@igro.co.nz, or post your

question on our Facebook page.

grow indoors or outdoors

Stephanotis floribunda

(Madagascan jasmine) – This

jasmine variety is known for

its 6cm pure-white spring-toautumn

flowers and its attractive,

tidy, dark green leathery leaves.

Once again, place it in bright light

but not direct sun. Do the usual

feeding while in active growth

and take care when watering to

never let the root ball dry out, but

ease back a bit in winter with both

the feeding and the watering. The

stephanotis is one of the most

fragrant of the flowering plants

and you can create a circle of

scented loveliness by growing it

around a hoop.

Trachelospermum jasminoides

(star jasmine) – Usually thought

of as an outdoor plant, star

jasmine can be grown inside as

long as you have a bit of space.

I recall a café that I used to

frequent where the ceiling was

covered in this jasmine, and as

you sat there the scent wafted

around you – it was magical. For

growing inside, provide it with

a decent-sized pot, some welldrained

potting mix and some

support to climb up or along.

There is a variegated version –

‘Variegata’ – that is less vigorous.

For another small grower and

a different flower colour, try

T. asiaticum, with its scented

Osmanthus fragrans

(sweet olive) – The osmanthus

family are not known for

their shouty flowers, but rather

for the sweet scent that their

flowers give off. The sweet olive

is no looker, but does have

agreeable leaves that look a bit

like a bay tree. It sits there quietly

until the small, off-white flowers

open and release a sweet, spicy

scent into the air. Water the root

ball regularly.

COLOUR: Gardenias are noted for their powerful fragrance.

Above: The common myrtle has cute flowers and the leaves

are scented.

small, waxy white flowers is one

of the most pleasant and easiest of

the scents to live with. Position in

bright light and keep watered and

well fed.

Gardenia augusta syn. G.

jasminoides,

G. grandiflora, G. florida – With

glossy, healthy-looking leaves and

reasonably-sized creamy flowers

that look as though they are made

out of parchment, the gardenia

is a bonzer plant. With a good

fragrance and a long flowering

period from late spring onwards,

the gardenia is a good choice

for inside. Place it back from the

window, avoiding direct light,

and ensure that you keep some

humidity happening around the

plant. If you move the plant for

maintenance, put it back facing

the light exactly as it was – these

plants are prone to flower drop

if you change the way they were

facing. (Other sensitive plants

that can have the same issue

are stephanotis and hoyas.) It

likes acidic soil, can be thirsty,

and I have heard of it being fed

throughout the winter to stop

the leaves from going yellow.

This is an elegant plant and looks

especially so when grown as a

standard. There is also a prostrate

dwarf form called ‘Radicans’ that

can also be grown in a hanging

basket.

Heliotropium arborescens

(cherry pie) – This is one of my

favourite scents and I always

try to have one of these plants

in my life. The common name

cherry pie is a good clue to how

mouth-wateringly good this plant

smells. Before you commit to this

plant, make sure you can provide

enough sun for it – it likes a lot.

It has a long flowering life and is

impossible to walk past without

stopping to take a scented sniff.

The leaves are slender and dark

green, and the small clusters of

flowers usually violet-purple,

though there is a mauve and a

white form.

Brugmansia x candida

syn. Datura candida (angel’s

trumpet) – If you are wanting

something flamboyant with a lot

of wow factor, then get yourself

one of these. The hanging white

flowers look not unlike a couture

gown and are large – up to 30cm

in length. Make sure you have

the space for it though, as it can

get quite big. It likes warmth in

summer and a cooler, well-lit

position in winter. One thing to

be aware of is that all parts of the

plant are poisonous.

Looking for a property – what really counts?

You are in the market for a new

property, scrolling the Internet,

examining properties for sale and

zeroing in on those with potential. They

might be in locations that offer cheaper

land, larger houses, or convenience to

work or school.

You may have visited show homes

and open homes becoming confused,

overwhelmed or swept away with

emotional factors like having

everything new, or extra features such

as three car garaging.

To be happy with your choice, list the

features that you need, considering:

• Family space – Is there room for

the children to play indoors and for

television and entertainment units?

Should this be open plan or separated?

• Kitchen – What needs to be in

your kitchen? How serious are you

about a butler’s pantry? Is it a whim

or something that offers a practical

solution to the way you use your

kitchen?

• Bedroom sizes – What are optimum

sizes? Smaller bedrooms may translate

to slightly lower building costs while

extra space can be useful. When

looking at existing homes, consider

whether the size of each bedroom is

sufficient.

• Garaging – A standard double

garage once two cars are parked there

offers little space for the toys. What

toys do you have and could they live

with the lawnmower in a garden shed,

a cheaper option to three car garaging?

If the budget allows and a larger garage

with workshop is important, make it a

selection priority.

• Size of land – Lifestyle properties

offer space for children, pets, hobbies,

an expansive garden and perhaps a

home-run business but they require

work so are not for everyone and a

compact section might be more sensible

if a tight budget or busy lifestyle.

• Bathrooms – Second and third

bathrooms are great in homes with

teenagers and a wet shower room is

ideal for young children. A bath might

be fashionable though is often not used

and its absence could mean a more

spacious bathroom.

• Laundry – Would a laundry in the

garage do the job?

• Storage – How much storage do

you need? Weigh up what can truly be

stored in the garage once vehicles are

in, a preference in winter. Garages vary

in size so check the size to ensure your

vehicles will fit. Look also at where

else the house offers storage capacity

such as in hall cupboards, a large hot

water cylinder cupboard, wardrobes

(check their width and depth), walkin

robe, attic storage trusses, as well as

the potential for hooks and shelving

in the garage for bikes, tools, garden

equipment and even kayaks.

• Off-street parking – How many

vehicles can be parked on the driveway?

Will this space be sufficient?

• Garden - Is there sufficient space

for your children to play or for

entertaining?

A checklist will allow you to determine

what will suit your needs, the point of

the exercise, saving you time looking at

properties or potential house designs

while assisting you to decide whether

to buy a new or existing home with

both options having advantages and

disadvantages.

in the Selwyn District

Great ways to maximise

storage space

It can be hard to judge the amount of

storage needed in a new home and while

there is something to be said for decluttering

and not holding onto possessions

no longer needed, there will still be items

that are useful and you wish to keep.

The size and design of a home largely

determines the number of cupboards and

storage space available yet opportunities

exist for making the most of the space

available so the home is more easily kept

tidy and clean.

When looking at a house plan, consider

where storage might be included. For

example, open shelving might be fitted in a

living room wall and more shelves included

in a cupboard for maximum storage, with

it worth measuring the height of items and

siting shelves accordingly.

Including more kitchen cabinetry where

space allows, is another option as is corner

cupboards where space might otherwise be

lost. A Lazy Susan makes it easier to access

items though can reduce the amount that

can be stowed in the cupboard. Full length

A built in

laundry bin

hides dirty

washing.

or half vertical tray cupboards are also

handy for chopping boards, patty tins, large

flat platter dishes and baking trays. Would

it also be worth taking some cabinetry up

to the ceiling in the laundry, kitchen or

garage?

Allow room for a laundry trolley or

basket as well as mops, brooms and perhaps

the vacuum cleaner. A laundry bin built

into the cabinetry is also perfect for hiding

dirty washing.

Pre-manufactured shelving systems in

hall and laundry cupboards, as well as

wardrobes are attractive however, assess

whether these work with what you want to

locate there and whether built-in shelves

might be better. Having space for stackable

plastic bins containing children’s toys might

also help keep a bedroom tidy, especially if

a smaller room.

Attic garage roof trusses are a wonderful

way to provide a place for less used items.

The trusses need to be incorporated into the

design at planning stage and will cost more

however, the extra dollars may be justified,

especially in a smaller home. Access is via

an attic ladder and the trusses are only

possible if the roof pitch is not too low.

Built-in or customised shelving can fitted

in the garage along with bike racks, hooks

for tools and even hammock style netting

that can be strung up to hang below the

roof.

If you have a smaller courtyard garden,

rather than purchasing bulky outdoor

furniture stackable seating could be

chosen to offer extra places to perch when

entertaining. Raised garden beds with extra

wide tops are also good, while outdoor play

equipment and balls can be tucked away in

a chest or ottoman.

Having an outdoor shed offers a

weatherproof place for garden tools, the

lawnmower and bicycles and helps make

the garage more spacious while a lean-to

shelter provides a dry place for firewood,

potted frost sensitive plants and outdoor

furniture over winter.

Cabinetry in a living room provides extra storage.

Buying a property? Get a building inspection

13

Would you get a mechanic to inspect a

used car before you bought it, or would you

just get a mate who knows a bit about cars

to take a look? Prospective property buyers

face a similar conundrum – do they pay

for a building inspection before making an

offer, or just ask a builder friend to check

the place out?

Buying a car is worrisome enough, but

the emotional and financial stakes are a lot

higher when it comes to buying property. If

you’re going to make a serious investment in

something that will have a huge impact on

your family’s health, wealth and wellbeing,

it pays to get the best advice you can.

Ideally, this means engaging a building

inspector who can identify significant

defects, future or urgent maintenance

issues and problems caused by gradual

deterioration. They will look for structural

problems, any evidence that the property is

a leaky building, issues caused by deferred

maintenance (such as weatherboards

rotting due to peeling paint) and areas

where there is damp or mould. This is a

visual inspection – a building surveyor will

check in the ceiling and under the floor,

but they will not cut holes in walls or carry

out any other invasive testing. The whole

property should be checked, including

fences and any garages or sheds. They will

collate their findings in a detailed and easily

understood report.

Getting a good property inspection

carried out isn’t cheap though, particularly

if you’re unsuccessful in buying and have

to repeat the process. You have a range of

choices, from enlisting a builder mate to

using a qualified and insured inspector. You

can also make an inspection a condition

of your offer on a property. If you choose

this option, the report must be prepared

by a suitably qualified building inspector

in accordance with accepted principles

and methods. If you then use the report’s

findings to get out of the contract, you must

provide the seller with a copy of it. Either

way, the more you invest in this exercise the

safer you will be if things don’t turn out as

you had expected.

The property pre-purchase inspection

industry is not regulated in New Zealand,

however the Real Estate Agents Authority

(REAA) recommends using a qualified

building inspector who has professional

indemnity insurance, understands the

strict legal requirements of their role and

carries out their work in accordance with

the New Zealand Property Inspection

Standard. This is important because they

will help protect you if something goes

wrong later on. If you discover problems

with the property that should have been

evident in a building inspection, you can

make a complaint to the professional body

that the inspector belongs to and seek

compensation through the courts.

If you buy a property based on a report

by someone like a builder mate who is

unqualified and/or uninsured, you could

end up owning some expensive problems.

Even worse, you may severely limit your

ability to seek damages if the property has

significant issues that would have been

picked up by a more thorough inspection.

You have limited other avenues if

things don’t turn out to be how they were

represented to you. You may be able to

rely on the warranties included in the sale

and purchase agreement by the seller. They

are required to confirm that (among other

things) any work they have done on the

property was carried out in accordance

with any necessary permits or consents

required by law. You may also have other

legal options which you should speak

to your lawyer about. REAA strongly

recommends that you speak to a lawyer

before you sign the sale and purchase

agreement to understand this more.

If you are looking to buy it’s a good

idea to get in touch with a local building

inspector as soon as you start your property

search. Ask friends and family for their

recommendations and request a sample

report from any inspector you contact to

get an idea of the kind of information they

provide. Real estate agents can sometimes

offer building inspection reports to

prospective buyers on behalf of vendors.

Treat these as a starting point rather than

a definitive diagnostic guide to a property.

Paying for your own report means

you know the credentials of the person

who prepared it, you can be sure of its

impartiality and you can seek redress if

needed.

Depending on what a building inspection

finds, you may be able to use a report to help

you negotiate with the vendor over price or

repairs. Even if a report only finds minor

issues, you can still use it as a road map for

future maintenance. Knowing what you’re

in for is invaluable when you’re buying

property, no matter how many times you’ve

done it before.

The New Zealand Institute of Building

Surveyors and the Building Officials

Institute of New Zealand both hold lists

of qualified property inspectors. See

Four main types of property ownership

Most real estate advertisements are pretty

straightforward. There’s an attractive photo,

a headline that screams the property’s best

features and a list of its vital statistics.

Dig a bit further though and things can

get confusing. Everyone can decipher

the bit that tells you the property is ‘A

first home buyer’s dream’, and tick off the

number of bedrooms, bathrooms and offstreet

parking spaces. But what if the fine

print tells you it’s freehold, or leasehold, or

– even more confusing, cross-lease?

You might not realise it from a brief

glance, but how a property is owned has a

direct impact on your rights. While some

methods of ownership are straightforward,

others are slightly more complicated and it’s

worth doing your homework to understand

their impact.

There are four main types of land

ownership in New Zealand: freehold,

leasehold, unit title and cross-lease.

FREEHOLD

Freehold, also known as ‘fee simple’, is

the most common kind of ownership and

the simplest to understand. If you have a

freehold property, you have total ownership

of the land and anything built on it. That

means, generally speaking, that you can live

on the property, earn income from renting

it out, build on the land, lease it to someone

else, use it as security when applying for a

loan, gift it by will or sell the land.

LEASEHOLD

With leasehold ownership, someone else

owns the land (with freehold ownership)

and the leaseholder has the exclusive right

to possession of the land and any buildings

on it. If you buy a house or apartment that

is built on leasehold land, you have to pay

the freehold owner a ‘ground rental’, which

is usually paid twice yearly in advance.

You are also responsible for rates and

other expenses relating to your property.

Leasehold ownership is usually subject to

terms and conditions that restrict what the

leaseholder can do with the buildings or

land. The lease will also set out conditions

for when the ground rent can be reviewed

(usually every seven years). The length of

a lease term varies – at the end of the term

it can be renewed or revert back to the

freehold owner.

If you are interested in buying a leasehold

property, it’s a good idea to find out exactly

what these terms and conditions are,

especially because an increasing ground

rent rate (and a shortening lease term) can

have a serious impact on your ability to sell

the property at a later date. The length of a

lease term varies – at the end of the term

it can be renewed or revert back to the

freehold owner.

UNIT TITLE

Unit title ownership is most common

in a building development where there

are multiple owners. 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.

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.

An annual fee is usually charged. 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.

CROSS LEASE

Cross leases are probably the most

complicated form of property ownership in

New Zealand and lots of people struggle to

understand them. Essentially, if you hold a

cross lease, you are a part owner of every

building on the plot of land, not just the one

you occupy, with the other leaseholders.

Each cross lease holder is granted what is

known as a registered leasehold estate of

the particular area and building that they

occupy. These leases are usually for 999

years and each one will set out exclusive

areas of occupation as well as any shared

house or unit is set apart just for you and

your family, but you have equal access to

shared areas (like a driveway, or garages, or

a common garden area). A cross lease title

property you are looking at.

Cross lease ownership means that any

structural changes to the property or

shared areas must be agreed upon by all

the owners. Depending on the terms of the

cross lease, you may need to get the other

owners’ consent for things like painting

the exterior, building a deck or putting

up a fence. These provisions are usually

referred to as covenants. A covenant may

place restrictions on what you may do with

the unit or building, so it is important to

understand what they mean. This is where

things can get extremely tricky.

DO YOUR HOMEWORK

Whatever the type of title that a property

has, it’s absolutely crucial to do your

homework before you sign on the dotted

line to buy one. 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.

It’s a really good idea to get a lawyer who

can help you navigate all these different

documents and understand what they

mean. Check out www.propertylawyers.

org.nz to find one in your area – and start

talking to them before you begin the house

hunting process. When you have found a

property that you’re keen on, the REAA

recommends getting an independent

assessment of the property done by an

inspector who has professional indemnity

insurance and carries out their work in

accordance with the New Zealand Property

Inspection Standard. All these steps will

help minimise the risk of making a bad

decision.

For more advice on buying and selling

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

still have questions, call the Real Estate

Agents Authority (REAA) on 0800 367
