Woolston

Pool

• By Julia Evans

COMMUNITY consultation is

about to start on the $21 million

Linwood Woolston Pool.

At its meeting yesterday, the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board tabled a

document which will go out to the

community in the next four to six

weeks to gather feedback on the

pool’s location and features of the

facility.

In a report, city council staff

said the consultation would “support

a fully informed decision on

the selection of a site and gather

additional feedback on community

requirements/expectations of

the facility.”

Feedback will then be taken

into consideration during the

development of the pool’s concept

plan, which is expected to be

started in July.

FINALLY, WE have some action on the

long-running saga of a pool in Linwood/

Woolston.

Community consultation is about to

begin on the $21 million project. In the

next four to six weeks the public will be able to have their say on

where it should be and what features they would like.

This step has been a very long time coming but there is light,

albeit still distant, at the end of the tunnel.

The area needs a pool and somewhere along Linwood Ave is

probably a good spot.

On the facilities front, great news for Parklands and

Queenspark – stage 1 of the Pukeko Centre has opened.

Lots of hard work has gone in by the community.

Pier scaffolding recovered

• By Julia Evans

DIVERS HELPED recover the

scaffolding which broke loose

from the New Brighton Pier

during Cyclone Gita.

The high tide and large waves

on Wednesday caused one of the

scaffolding’s gantries to fall into

the sea.

Divers and a boat, along

with an excavator, winches and

cables, were used last week to

recover the metal framework.

City council contractors were

forced to remove scaffolding

boards and wind down

operations on the pier during

Cyclone Gita as a precaution.

“There is likely to be debris

near the beach that poses a

potential hazard to surfers,” city

council staff said.

Contractors have been

working since the start of

the year to repair columns

which sustained damage in

the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

The $9.7 million pier repairs

are set to be completed next

month.

REPAIRS TO CLOCK

Scaffolding has been erected

to mark the beginning of

repairs to the New Brighton

clock tower. Structural

engineers will start to

complete investigations about

the damage sustained. Some

damage has been caused from

the earthquakes, however

other is historical damage.

City council has ensured that

access ways including the

ramp and some steps have

remained clear to the café and

Parklands sports centre opens pavilion

• By Sophie Cornish

STAGE ONE of a multi-use

sports and recreation facility in

Parklands was officially opened

on Saturday by Mayor Lianne

Dalziel.

The first stage of the Pukeko

Centre consists of a clubrooms

and pavilion, which is located

on the grounds of the Parklands

Bowling Club.

The pavilion project cost more

than $1 million and includes a

bar, lounge area, separate office,

meeting rooms and a commercial

kitchen.

There is also seating for up to

200 people and a viewing deck

looking out on to the bowling

green.

The centre is a joint venture

between the bowling club and

Parklands Rugby Football Club,

which will also use the facility’s

clubrooms.

The bowling club’s facilities

were damaged beyond repair

in the February 22, 2011, earthquake

and the rugby club has

been without a clubrooms for

three years.

Two buildings, a school hall

and a ‘modern learning studio’

were relocated to the site from

the former Freeville School.

Centre spokeswoman Jane

Mahoney said it was “a stroke of

genius” to approach the Ministry

of Education to relocate the

buildings, which were earmarked

for demolition.

The ministry then gifted the

buildings to the two clubs.

Mrs Mahoney said parents of

former Freeville School pupils

were “thrilled” the buildings

were not demolished. A big

fundraising effort from the community

led to the development of

the school hall.

The next stages of the project

include turning the school hall

into a multi-use sports hall,

building an outdoor all-weather

sports court, landscaping and car

parking.

Grants from the New Zealand

Community Trust, Rata Foundation

and Southern Trust are

being used to fund the development.

Local businesses and trades

people have also offered their

time and money.

Mrs Mahoney said there had

been “thousands” of volunteer

hours put in already.

The opening was attended by

150 guests, including Christchurch

East MP Poto Williams,

community representatives,

sponsors and members from the

two sport clubs.

Feedback sought

on $21m Linwood

Woolston pool

•From page 1

The city council has allocated

about $21.6 million in its Long

Term Plan for the facility and

outlined its preferred location as

the nursery site at Linwood Park,

near the corner of Linwood Ave

and Smith St.

“This location meets all

our criteria, which makes it a

standout option for the community.

Currently this section of

Linwood Park is an old nursery

that is no longer used and has

good quality land that is already

owned by the city council,” the

report said.

Other benefits of the Linwood

Park site include proximity to

Eastgate Shopping Centre and

the Linwood Library. There is

also a major cycleway next to the

site and room for the facility to

grow.

Further possible locations

identified include Woolston

Park, 180 Smith St, the Linwood

Service Centre, an alternative

location on Linwood Park and

Bromley Park.

Construction of the pool is not

expected to start until the end of

next year and be completed in

2021.

“Once this round of engagement

has closed . . . a recommendation

on where it should

be built will be made to the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board. At this stage,

we expect that they will decide

on a site mid-2018,” the consultation

document said.

There will be a second round of

consultation regarding the facility’s

concept design.

“We expect this will kick off

early in the second half of 2018.”

The former Woolston Outdoor

Pool, which was next to the old

Woolston School, was removed

in 2006.

The community has been campaigning

for a new one for years.

NATIVE FISH, including eels

and whitebait, are being rescued

from the Linwood Canal to

ensure their survival while a new

cycleway is built.

Work on the second stage of

the Rapanui-Shag Rock Cycleway

along Linwood Ave between Linwood

Park and Dyers Rd started

in early January.

A cofferdam – an enclosure

built in the water to create

a dry work environment for

construction – is being built in

the Linwood Canal to widen the

shoulder of Linwood Ave.

Water will be drained from

the cofferdam leaving resident

fish – likely including eels,

inanga (whitebait) and common

bullies – marooned if they’re not

removed first.

WPS Opus Ecologist Annabelle

Coates, who is carrying

out the rescue mission for the

city council, is unsure how many

fish she will find: “We’re not

expecting huge numbers because

traditionally the Linwood Canal

hasn’t been that diverse, however,

we could be surprised by the

numbers and species as that has

been known to happen at other

locations.”

She is hopeful there could be

some endangered long-finned

eels living in the canal.

Ms Coates will use fyke nets

to catch as many fish in the

cofferdam as possible before collecting

the rest using an electric

fishing machine that attracts

and then stuns the fish. She’ll

remove them from the water in a

net before releasing them in the

main part of the canal. The process

does not harm the fish and

is deliberately being carried out

outside of spawning season.

The ecologist will also be on

hand when water is drained from

the cofferdam in case there are

any fish left behind. “The council

has an obligation to protect

native fish and to maintain fish

passage so this has to be done

and it’s an easy thing to do to

save them,” she says.

manager Adrian Thein said fish

conservation is a condition of resource

part of minimising the impact

of cycleway work on the local

environment and ecology.

“Native fish and their spawning

habitats are legally protected

so we have to take care not to

harm them when doing essential

work around waterways. We’re

always happy to do our bit to

make sure the local flora and

2 down, 4 to go!

We’re working in three key central

city intersections over six weekends,

8pm Fri to 6am Mon, until 26 March.

We’ve finished work in the Montreal/

weekends of work in two intersections

to go.

These intersections need replacing.

We’re digging them out and rebuilding

them to extend their lifespan.

Road layers need ‘curing’, or drying time.

If you don’t see us on site, don’t worry –

we’ll be back again soon.

ONE THING I love about our

aren’t afraid to call it how it is

and to take some action to solve

problems.

In spite of not always feeling

the love in terms of service, it’s in

our nature to give things a go and

get things done.

One of the best tools I have

found lately is the Snap Send

Solve app. It allows you to take

pictures with your phone and

report problems (like pollution,

etc) to both the city council and

Environment Canterbury.

You can log something and

straight away it goes into these

organisations’ tracking systems

and usually the results are

good.

It can be used to report issues

with graffiti, rubbish, parks,

roads, waterways and so on.

I love it because I have a phobia

of using telephones and I can

log problems and know they got

to the right place and are being

tracked.

I have found it particularly

useful with getting rid of graffiti

and rubbish dumped in our

corner of the red zone.

Snap Send Solve was also

effective in getting a faded

pedestrian crossing painted so

that motorists could see it and

stop.

This was done within a week of

the request.

Where hasn’t it been so

effective for me?

I reported a problem with

traffic light phasing, where there

are often 12 cars queued during

peak hours and the lights were

letting two to three cars out per

phase.

In spite of backing up my

report with pictures and

timings, I was told there was

no problem and no changes

would be made.

It often depends on who

receives your report.

Also, once I reported a large

amount of sediment dumped into

a waterway and ECan only got

the report two days later.

So maybe sometimes you still

do need to use that telephone.

Readers respond to an

article about trees in South

New Brighton Domain

which could fall at anytime,

according to Coastal-

Burwood Community Board

deputy chairman Tim Sintes

Maria Mann – Those trees

have been unsafe for weeks. My

dad, my son and myself walk in

the domain. They should have

been removed a while ago.

Andrew Gold – Lock everyone

inside, it’s too unsafe outside.

Just leave it alone.

Tess Lenihan – Not happening.

Too much money has

been spent already. They’ve

increased rates for that church

and are pondering fuel tax for

road repairs. I’d hate to see where

they get money from for general

maintenance.

Peter Cooper – That’s just

the top roots . . . how far down do

they actually go?

Andrew McDrury – Yes,

well that one is clearly toast.

It’s hard to imagine why you

wouldn’t assess the rest.

HANGING ON: Tim Sintes (inset) says damaged trees in the

South New Brighton Domain are a health and safety concern.

Jo Garrick – Simple answer,

yes. The question should not have

even been asked, safety first.

Mark McLaren – They will

have to put the rates up to be able

to get to this.

John Le Riche – Sadly, yes,

they should go, it’s an accident

waiting too happen.

Vanessa Penney – It’s not

rocket science, if they are dangerous

they go.

Keep QE II in the East

spokeswoman Jo Zervos

responds to Coastal-

Burwood Community Board

member Linda Stewart’s

soapbox about the need

for a 50m pool at the new

recreation and sport centre

The Keep QE II in the East

group are supportive of Linda

Stewart’s proposal for extra pool

space at the new QE II facility.

There is so much excitement in

our community for the impending

opening of the new facility in

June. However, we are concerned

not everyone in our community

will get a fair opportunity to

use it. There are so many clubs,

groups and individuals wanting

to use the new facility, along with

the thousands of school children

from the area.

Lane swimmers, aqua-joggers,

swim clubs, water polo players

and leisure swimmers will have

to fit in around city council-run

programmes and classes.

We have always opposed the

QE II replacement complex being

built in the city. QE II has always

been the perfect site, with links

to other recreational sites (river,

beaches, forest, red zone, wetlands)

and it is the perfect area to

host triathlons, which would use

a 50m pool.

The original QE II facility was

built with a huge amount of local

community input. The insurance

money from QE II should have

been fully reinvested in a replacement

facility in the east.

Christchurch is in dire need

of a 50m competition pool, and

with the proposed metro centre

in doubt, surely an alternative site

should be considered.

By the time Christchurch gets

a replacement competition pool,

a full decade of swimmers have

missed out.

We propose that one of the

quickest and economical options

for the city is to add on to the

new QE II facility.

New lease of life for

Avebury House

• By Sophie Cornish

AVEBURY HOUSE Community

Trust will receive $11,500 to go

towards its three-year plan to

re-establish the role the historic

building plays in the community.

The Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board approved

the grant last week which will

come out of its strengthening

communities fund.

Located in Richmond, the

trust’s aim is to renew itself as a

community development organisation

and social enterprise.

The house is now part of the

residential red zone. The trust offers

free or low cost activities for

people to socialise at the house.

The funding will cover wages

for a new employee, an upgrade

to the kitchen, an ICT upgrade

and other expenses.

The new employee will have

a community development role

and will be tasked with finding

out what local people need.

The trust will also carry out

surveys using social media and

phone campaigns in an attempt

to get a further understanding

of how it can benefit the community.

By establishing itself as a social

enterprise, the house can be used

as a venue for weddings, meetings

and small conferences.

Upgrading the kitchen will also

allow it to be hired out for activities

such as cooking classes.

COMMUNITY HUB: Richmond

heritage building Avebury

House, where the community

trust operates from.

Whitebait initiative gets pupils to take care of waterways

A MINISTRY of Business

Innovation and Employment

grant will allow pupils from

South New Brighton, Waitākiri

and Rawhiti schools to learn

about the life cycle of whitebait

(inanga) in red zone waterways.

Investigate: Īnanga is a new

educational initiative designed to

meet New Zealand curriculum

standards. It will be delivered in

collaboration with teachers and

scientists in class and in the field.

Haeata Community Campus

students will also take part in the

initiative.

Said Anzac Drive Reservebased

Mahinga Kai Exemplar

project manager Kathryn Bates:

“Recent post-quake studies have

found parts of the edge of Kate

Sheppard Lake are very productive

inanga spawning areas,

which provides an opportunity

for young pupils to learn about

a significant aspect of the world

around them.

“Not only do they get to

understand the life cycle of an

important native species, they

also learn about the kind of

habitat that they live in and why

it is important we look after our

rivers and wetlands,” she said.

The initiative is a collaboration

between Avon-Otakaro Network,

Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu,

EOS Ecology Ltd and Whitebait

Connection.

Regenerate Christchurch chief

executive Ivan Iafeta is supportive.

“This programme aligns

closely with the vision for the

Ōtakaro Avon River Corridor as

‘a place of learning and discovery

where traditional knowledge,

science and technology meet

and the objective’s to create a

restored habitat and establish a

world-leading, living laboratory.”

Children reflect on quake with river of flowers

A ‘RIVER of flowers’ was

created by Queenspark School

pupils and families to mark

the seventh anniversary of the

Canterbury earthquakes.

Pupils wrote reflective

messages along with laying of

flowers.

“It is an opportunity to come

together as a school community

and reflect how far we have

come since the earthquakes,”

said Queenspark School spokeswoman

Rebecca Taylor.

“It creates a place to remember

the 185 people who lost their

lives and also thinking about the

first responders, the emergency

services and the people of Canterbury

who helped others in

need,” she said.

FLOWERS: Elouise, 6, with

her contribution to the ‘river

REAL ESTATE

6 car garaging… will be a car enthusiasts dream!

9 Elmwood Drive, Prebbleton

Auction: Wednesday, 21st March 2018, 2pm

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 2 lounges | 2 Dining rooms | 6 Garages | Land area 1204m2 | Listing ID: HR4834

Situated amongst some of Prebbleton’s

finest properties, 9 Elmwood Drive, has

come to the market for the very first

time. This sprawling home is as unique

as it is special with 4 double bedrooms, 2

bathrooms, media room, office, formal

dining, formal living and massive garaging

on a 1204m2 section. Whilst decorative and

opulent in its design, the owners wanted

to create an authentic home where their

family could simply relax, enjoy and soak

in the peace and tranquillity of the land

and location. If you have ever considered

a property with large garaging you’ll know

that very rarely does such an opportunity

like this present itself. Whether you

are a motor enthusiast, a tradesman,

hobbyist, work from home, or just have

the requirement for expansive garaging,

this address is a must to inspect! Once this

property has been sold, there are no others

to replace it. With instructions to sell on or
