Removal<br />

of Rawhiti<br />

Domain<br />

trees a<br />

‘double<br />

standard’<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

THE REMOVAL of seven trees in<br />

Rawhiti Domain has been labelled<br />

a “double standard” following<br />

a request for an urgent safety<br />

audit of trees on the South New<br />

Brighton estuary edge.<br />

The Rawhiti Domain trees will<br />

be removed because of safety<br />

concerns.<br />

But Coastal-Burwood Community<br />

Board member Tim Sintes<br />

says the tree issue in South New<br />

Brighton needs urgent attention<br />

too.<br />

He says more than 30 trees on<br />

the estuary edge are at risk of falling<br />

at any time. The community<br />

board requested an urgent safety<br />

audit at the beginning of last<br />

month.<br />

The city council has previously<br />

told Pegasus Post the South New<br />

Brighton trees were being monitored<br />

over the past six weeks. A<br />

fallen tree on the beach had been<br />

removed, along with eight pine<br />

trees near the boundary fence of<br />

the camping ground.<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

Rats on the rise in Sumner as<br />

cooler weather approaches<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

MORE RATS are being trapped<br />

in Sumner as autumn arrives.<br />

Predator Free Sumner coordinator<br />

Gabe Ross said they<br />

were starting to “haul them in,”<br />

with 23 caught in February.<br />

“The animals start to look<br />

for new sources of food, as the<br />

weather cools and the autumn<br />

bounty starts to disappear.”<br />

Esplanade resident Phil<br />

Loughnan has single-handedly<br />

SWEET TOOTH: This rat<br />

couldn’t resist the bait –<br />

Whittaker’s peanut chocolate.<br />

nabbed <strong>13</strong> rats at or near his<br />

home at the western end of<br />

Scarborough Beach.<br />

There were also five hedgehogs<br />

caught last month.<br />

It brings the total catch to 117<br />

since the programme started in<br />

October.<br />

Mr Ross said while the numbers<br />

might not seem that high<br />

– there are 178 traps in the area –<br />

“we are dealing with varying levels<br />

of enthusiasm and expertise<br />

in both trapping and reporting,<br />

so it is a good start.”<br />

Predator Free Sumner last year<br />

received a Kiwibank grant to<br />

subsidise 140 traps in the greater<br />

Sumner area, from Clifton Hill<br />

to Taylors Mistake.<br />

Co-ordinator Gabe Ross said<br />

the uptake in the community<br />

had been excellent.<br />

But educating people about<br />

keeping traps set all the time,<br />

how best to keep them baited<br />

and what baits to use was ongoing,<br />

he said.<br />

“It’s a learning process we’re all<br />

going through.”<br />

Trap numbers would have<br />

to increase if Sumner was to<br />

become predator free.<br />

PREDATORS: A ‘heatmap’ of catches since October – the red<br />

spots indicate areas where a lot of pests have been caught.<br />

He estimated a fifth of households<br />

would need to be actively<br />

trapping.<br />

“We’re well below that at present.<br />

If we were just to cover the<br />

valley floor, it would take about<br />

300 rat traps, evenly spaced. That<br />

would be a pretty great start.”<br />

The group is looking at funding<br />

and sponsorship opportunities to<br />

increase their trap stocks.<br />

They were also looking at<br />

holding a ‘build-your-own-trap’<br />

workshop.<br />

In the meantime, Mr Ross<br />

said people can get in touch for<br />

advice and information:<br />

Council seeks future use for Banks<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

IDEAS ARE being sought for<br />

the future use of four heritage<br />

buildings on Banks Peninsula.<br />

They are the Lyttelton Borough<br />

Council stables in Lyttelton; Yew<br />

Cottage in Akaroa; the Little<br />

River Coronation Library and<br />

Kukupa Hostel in Pigeon Bay.<br />

Individuals, groups and<br />

organisations interested in using<br />

or helping to fund the buildings’<br />

restoration have until <strong>March</strong><br />

29 to submit ideas to the city<br />

council.<br />

Most sustained damage in the<br />

September 2010, and February<br />

2011, Canterbury earthquakes<br />

and are yet to be repaired.<br />

“Unfortunately, we don’t have<br />

enough money right now to<br />

repair all our heritage buildings<br />

within the next few years, so<br />

we need to prioritise how these<br />

funds should be spent,’’ city<br />

council acting head of parks<br />

Brent Smith said.<br />

Lyttelton resident and former<br />

property manager at The<br />

Tannery, Ian Knewstubb, said<br />

the former stables should be<br />

retained and eventually restored,<br />

in spite of the cost.<br />

“My oath – there’s so little left.<br />

They don’t have to happen that<br />

fast. The main thing is to hold on<br />

to them.”<br />

He said the building should<br />

be made weather-tight and a<br />

working party should be set up.<br />

“In Italy, they just make sure<br />

nothing happens to the (old)<br />

buildings. If it takes 10, 20,<br />

30, 40 years – that’s what it<br />

takes. The major thing is to<br />

hold on to them and establish<br />

a working party to look at how<br />

to maintain them as they are,<br />

how to fund raise, and also to<br />

establish what purpose they<br />

should be put to.”<br />

The stables were built in<br />

1914 for councillors to lodge<br />

their steeds; the horses were<br />

replaced by motor vehicles<br />

in 1939.<br />

Estimates put the cost of<br />

restoration at around $2.2<br />

million.<br />

AT LEAST $750,000 TO RESTORE: The Little River Coronation Library building sits in the Awa-Iti<br />

Domain near the War Memorial Gates. ​<br />

Peninsula heritage buildings<br />

The Little River Coronation<br />

Library building has an estimated<br />

minimum restoration cost<br />

of $750,000 – however, this<br />

figure is based on preliminary<br />

investigations rather than<br />

engineering costs, according to a<br />

city council report.<br />

The library was built to mark<br />

the coronation of King George<br />

V. It was opened in 19<strong>13</strong>, and it<br />

remained in use as a library until<br />

2000.<br />

The former Kukupa School<br />

building in Pigeon Bay – which<br />

is a listed Heritage New Zealand<br />

building – operated from 1878<br />

until 1949. In 1951 it opened as<br />

the Youth Hostel Association’s<br />

first stand-alone hostel in New<br />

Zealand.<br />

Akaroa’s Yew Cottage is another<br />

well-known landmark in need<br />

of restoration. Built of locally<br />

milled timber in 1877, it provides<br />

a record of the lifestyle of early<br />

colonial settlers.<br />

Both properties are estimated<br />

to cost around $250,000 each to<br />

restore.<br />

The city council said it welcomed<br />

all “workable” proposals, including<br />

those from commercial businesses,<br />

community groups or charitable<br />

trusts.<br />

Tree removal ‘double standard’<br />

•From page 1<br />

However, Mr Sintes said the<br />

real problem is the trees on the<br />

estuary edge.<br />

“It is a total inconsistency, as<br />

there has been no motion from<br />

city council to remove trees on<br />

the estuary edge, which pose<br />

equally as much of a safety risk,”<br />

he said.<br />

“The walking track in South<br />

New Brighton would get a lot<br />

more people than the Rawhiti<br />

Domain one would . . . if you use<br />

the same criteria that they have<br />

used in the Rawhiti Domain on<br />

the estuary edge, well<br />

there shouldn’t be any trees left<br />

there.”<br />

Mr Sintes said the work<br />

“reeks of a double standard”<br />

and believes it may be due to an<br />

agenda the city council has with<br />

the estuary edge.<br />

The city council wants to let<br />

the estuary edge erode naturally<br />

following damage to the erosion<br />

protection from the earthquakes.<br />

The community board wants to<br />

protect it in order to preserve as<br />

much of the domain as possible.<br />

“This (trees becoming<br />

damaged) is never going to stop<br />

on the estuary edge until they<br />

protect it,” Mr Sintes said.<br />

City council acting head<br />

of parks Kay Holder said on<br />

Thursday the estuary edge is<br />

monitored on a regular basis as<br />

RISK: Tim Sintes wants the dangerous trees removed from the<br />

South New Brighton estuary edge.<br />

the area is treated as a priority<br />

from a health and safety<br />

perspective.<br />

“As a result of this monitoring,<br />

we became aware of the fallen<br />

tree and tree stumps and had<br />

these removed as a priority.<br />

During those works a stand of<br />

PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS<br />

dead pine and macrocarpa trees<br />

were identified as hazardous and<br />

have also been removed.<br />

“We will continue to monitor<br />

the area on a regular basis to<br />

ensure that any health and<br />

safety issues are dealt with<br />

appropriately,” she said.<br />

Science focus for<br />

new St Anne’s pupils<br />

ST ANNE’S School has welcomed seven new<br />

pupils to its school recently.<br />

The school has a science focus this term<br />

and the new entrant class has been doing a<br />

lot of learning about mixing, melting and<br />

dissolving.<br />

The pupils have made a lot of mixtures and<br />

then separated them with a sieve.<br />

When they melted ice they discovered<br />

they could melt it quickly in their mouths<br />

and when they melted sugar it turned into<br />

toffee.<br />

Schools count down to Maadi Cup<br />

Six days out from the biggest school rowing event of<br />

the year, Andrew King looks at how some of the crews<br />

might fare at Maadi Cup which starts on Monday at Lake<br />

Ruataniwha, Twizel<br />

CASHMERE HIGH has a<br />

number of rowers heading to the<br />

The team is looking forward<br />

to the challenge, head of rowing<br />

squad earned<br />

three medals:<br />

Gold in the boys<br />

bronze in the girls novice four.<br />

“We are watching these crews,<br />

as well as the under-16 girls<br />

double and under-17 boys single,<br />

to do well [at Maadi],” she said.<br />

“We have 15 rowers<br />

representing us, mostly in<br />

smaller boats. We don’t have<br />

an eight and a majority of the<br />

rowers are novice so [we] have no<br />

previous title to defend.”<br />

Award for basketball official<br />

• By Andrew King<br />

PIONEER Basketball Club’s<br />

Matthew Bathurst<br />

won the Blackwells<br />

Holden outstanding<br />

official of the year at<br />

the Nexia New Zealand<br />

Canterbury Sports<br />

Awards.<br />

The 29-year-old was<br />

crowned the top referee<br />

in the National Basketball<br />

League last year and<br />

has been selected as an<br />

official for the upcoming<br />

Commonwealth Games in the<br />

Gold Coast next month.<br />

He was up against GymSports<br />

Toby Levine and hockey’s Gareth<br />

Greenfield.<br />

He said he was reminded of<br />

the award nomination midway<br />

through last week<br />

and he quickly got<br />

his suit dry-cleaned<br />

just in case.<br />

“It was quite a<br />

surprise to win,” he<br />

said.<br />

He said the award<br />

caught him so off<br />

guard, he didn’t have<br />

time to think of who<br />

he would thank for<br />

helping him get to<br />

where he is today.<br />

“I should have thanked Linda<br />

van Oosten, Karin Berryman<br />

and Stephanie Eldrid who were<br />

Matthew<br />

Bathurst<br />

some of my first mentors and<br />

taught me a lot about reffing,”<br />

he said.<br />

“Also former head of NZNBL<br />

referee’s Alan Godden who<br />

gave me my first opportunity<br />

at that level, BBNZ referee coordinator<br />

Melony Welleans and<br />

current head of referees at<br />

NZNBL Peter Rogers.”<br />

He will head for the Gold<br />

Coast on April 2 to prepare for<br />

the Commonwealth Games.<br />

“It is my biggest competition<br />

I have been to and I am looking<br />

forward to the challenge,” he<br />

said.<br />

“I will be based in Townsville<br />

then we meet in Brisbane for<br />

the finals.”<br />

than a second faster than<br />

Christchurch Girls’ High’s Paris<br />

Carroll (39min 14.9sec) and Ngaio<br />

Shaw (40min 50.9sec).<br />

The under-16 team, made up<br />

of St Andrew’s College<br />

under-16A (33min<br />

36.4sec) and Geraldine<br />

Boys’ (34min 33.9sec).<br />

Head of triathlon ​<br />

David Tuia said it was<br />

good to see the young<br />

athletes coming through<br />

but more events were<br />

needed.<br />

“We want to keep the<br />

momentum. We need to<br />

get more [events] going to help the<br />

sport grow. If we get more events,<br />

we will see these kids really explode,”<br />

he said.

What began life as a 1950s bungalow was<br />

transformed in the 1970s when architecture<br />

in Christchurch was breaking from the<br />

constraints and traditions of the past to<br />

create what is now a truly unique home.<br />

What we have today is an avant-garde<br />

home nestled into the sunny slopes above<br />

Redcliffs. Not only does it bask in sunshine<br />

it enjoys uninterrupted views across the<br />

estuary and up the coastline. The magic of<br />

the setting reflects the magic to be found<br />

indoors. On 3 levels it provides space for<br />

everyone and everything. The main central<br />

floor comprises the entry from the carport<br />

at the front door, open plan kitchen dining<br />

and living, a study/play area, 2 double<br />

bed-rooms which open to a spacious deck<br />

area and a state of the art bathroom. Stairs<br />

descend to a rumpus room/studio which<br />

opens to a paved patio area giving access to<br />

a landscaped contemporary hillside garden.<br />

The upper level provides the main suite<br />

comprising bedroom, en suite and dressing<br />

room and expansive open living space with<br />

floor to ceiling windows. This home exudes<br />

contemporary style with an industrial<br />

minimalist theme.<br />

Open homes Sundays 1.45pm-2.30pm<br />

and Thursdays 7.30pm-8pm.<br />
