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 and 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.

Coastal pathway $10m short

• By Sarla Donovan

A KEY piece of the Christchurch

Coastal Pathway is in limbo due

to a $10 million shortfall.

Heathcote Ward city

councillor Sara Templeton

last week pushed through an

amendment to the city council’s

draft Long Term Plan to try

and prioritise

what she said

was a “key piece

of community

infrastructure.”

The 760m

Sara

Templeton

section from

Shag Rock to the

Sumner Surf Life

Saving Club is

jointly funded by the city council

and the Coastal Pathway Group.

It is expected to take 12 months

to build, with an anticipated

start date of April.

However, the final part,

between Moncks Bay and Shag

Rock, currently has no funding

allocated.

Ms Templeton’s amendment

means a report with an estimate

of the costs for the section and

a timeframe for delivery will be

included in the draft Long Term

Plan and the community will be

able to make submissions on it.

PATHWAY: A key section of the planned Christchurch Coastal Pathway is in limbo due to a $10

million shortfall.

There was a lack of

understanding about the

coastal pathway, with some city

councillors viewing it as purely a

“recreational nice-to-have,” she

said.

“This report, and community

submissions, will enable the

project to have the best chance at

success.”

Ms Templeton said the

original footpath on the other

side of the road was removed

during rockfall remediation

work and was not replaced.

She said the Moncks

Bay pathway is currently a

“dangerous informal path” with

a drop down to the rocks or sea

below.

“Footpaths are a core council

function, but this section is

currently not funded at all,” she

said.

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.

•From page 1

Joan was just 14 when she first

spotted Ray walking through

Cass Square in Hokitika and

thought to herself “there’s a nice

looking chap.”

At 18, they became engaged

and when Ray bought a section

in Kaniere Rd in Hokitika two

years later, he started to build

them a house.

In 1948, when they were both

21, they travelled by train over

the mountains to Christchurch

and were married at St Giles

Presbyterian Church on Papanui

Rd, with just a bridesmaid and

best man as witnesses.

Joan wore an ice-blue dress

and Ray a brown, double-breasted

pin stripe suite.

Over the next three years, their

children, Shirley and Graeme,

were born and Ray started work

as an apprentice joiner with R.W.

Ross in Hokitika.

Upon shifting to Christchurch

in 1957, Ray worked as a maintenance

carpenter at Sunnyside

Hospital where Joan was employed

as a nurse.

After living in Hoon Hay,

Avonhead, Cashmere and St

Martins, they moved to an

apartment at Cashmere View

Retirement Village last year

where they enjoy the village environment,

river walks, and visits

from their six grandchildren

and six great-grandchildren.

Daughter Shirley Eddington

said the morning tea was a lovely

occasion.

“They all enjoyed it and

Rubbish problems ease off

• By Sarla Donovan

THE DELUGE of rubbish in

Sumner has eased since school

holidays ended.

The Sumner Community

Residents’ Association met with

city council staff and Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board member Darrell Latham

to discuss

maintenance of

Sumner’s public

spaces, including

concerns around

the frequency of

rubbish bins being

Latham

emptied in Sumner

and Taylors

Mistake.

After being

emptied twice a day following

publicity around overflowing

bins, the city council has returned

to once a day and twice on weekends,

plus an additional emptying

at night.

City council head of parks

Brent Smith said the rationalisation

of contracts for the removal

of rubbish in Sumner was still

being considered, and the installation

of larger bins and smart

bins was under review.

Currently Sumner has rubbish

contracts operated by different

contractors for the beach

(these come under the parks

contract) and for the village

(these come under transport).

“We await further information

about these contracts and

if, how and when they will be

rationalised. We are wanting

to develop a strategy towards a

suburb-wide solution, not just a

beach solution,” said Mr Smith.

Having several wheelie bins

strapped together at key points

on the Esplanade to cope with

heavy usage periods was also

discussed at the meeting.

Dr Latham, who organised

and chaired the meeting, said it

had been very positive.

“Issues were addressed with

a view to putting into place

EVER WONDERED what a

The patrol car will be on display

The group’s main goal is to keep

the community safe, patrolling

from Halswell to Ferrymead.

But it also helps with security at

major events at Addington Raceway,

Horncastle Arena and AMI

Stadium by patrolling the car

parks and surrounding streets.

During the Port Hills fire and

properties.

The patrol also supports the city

council by recording incidents

of graffiti and litter so it can be

removed as quickly as possible.

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.

Another benefit of the Linwood

Park site is its proximity

to Eastgate Shopping Centre.

There is also a major cycleway

next to the site and room for the

facility to grow. Further possible

locations 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

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.

Council city services project

manager Adrian Thein said fish

conservation is a condition of resource

consent and an important

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 fauna is

preserved.”

Cr Johanson, supported by

FIVE PARKING spaces will be

now retained after criticism of

changes to bus stops and parking

in central Lyttelton.

As part of a proposal in

October last year, the city council

wanted to remove five parking

spaces on Oxford St near the

Winchester St intersection,

to improve sight lines for

pedestrians using the crossing

– which it intends to make

permanent.

But after public opposition

to the resulting loss of onstreet

parking, the city council

proposed an alternative

crossing design which gives less

sight distance, but still meets

minimum design guidelines.

The alternative design would

result in safety improvements

while retaining some on-street

“In my view there’s a complete

Cr Johanson said it was a

At its recent meeting, the

board also asked that a master

It would give guidance for

Fire rages, homes at risk

Landmark to be repaired by June

• By Sarla Donovan

A LANDMARK apartment

building opposite Sumner beach

is set to be fully repaired by

June.

The three-storey 1990s

beachside property was

damaged in the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

It is next door to the former

Cave Rock apartments, built in

1998.

Both complexes were designed

at the same time by the late

Peter Beaven, but the Cave Rock

apartments were demolished in

2012.

Body corporate chairman

Damon Rutherford said the

building at 20 Esplanade was

built on a rock foundation,

and “that’s why it’s still

standing.”

EQC and insurers paid

out a multi-million dollar

settlement, said Mr Rutherford,

and it was now being completely

refurbished, with a new

roof, new windows and other

work.

“It will look like a brand new

modern building.”

Repairs started about six

months ago with the building

being raised as it had sunk

REPAIRS: The building at

20 Esplanade has been

looked prior to the repair

work.

into the ground.

There are six apartments –

three on the ground floor,

two on the middle and one on

top.

All the original owners

remain except for the top floor

apartment, which has since been

purchased by Mr Rutherford’s

trust.

Lower speed

limit likely for

Richmond Hill Rd

PRECIPITOUS Richmond Hill

Rd in Sumner could get a lowered

speed limit of 40km/h as a new

bylaw comes into effect.

The city council is proposing to

reduce speeds after “requests from

the local community in relation

to safety concerns in Richmond

Hill.”

The road is narrow with minimal

footpaths and cars are often

parked on the side of the road.

Speed restrictions would

apply from the intersection with

Nayland St upwards.

Speed advisory signs are also

planned on the hairpin bends,

likely to be between 15 and

25km/h.

The new Traffic and Parking

Bylaw takes effect in March, allowing

the city council to set and

change speed limits on Christchurch

roads – in accordance with

Land Transport rules.

However, there are no moves

afoot to put in new footpaths or

widen the road, due to lack of

funding and space.

proposed changes before

Situated amongst some of Prebbleton’s

finest properties, 9 Elmwood Drive, has

as it is special with 4 double bedrooms, 2

bathrooms, media room, office, formal

dining, formal living and massive garaging

opulent in its design, the owners wanted

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 pay?
