Removal

of Rawhiti

Domain

trees a

‘double

standard’

• By Sophie Cornish

THE REMOVAL of seven trees in

Rawhiti Domain has been labelled

a “double standard” following

a request for an urgent safety

audit of trees on the South New

Brighton estuary edge.

The Rawhiti Domain trees will

be removed because of safety

concerns.

But Coastal-Burwood Community

Board member Tim Sintes

says the tree issue in South New

Brighton needs urgent attention

too.

He says more than 30 trees on

the estuary edge are at risk of falling

at any time. The community

board requested an urgent safety

audit at the beginning of last

month.

The city council has previously

told Pegasus Post the South New

Brighton trees were being monitored

over the past six weeks. A

fallen tree on the beach had been

removed, along with eight pine

trees near the boundary fence of

the camping ground.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Rats on the rise in Sumner as

cooler weather approaches

• By Sarla Donovan

MORE RATS are being trapped

in Sumner as autumn arrives.

Predator Free Sumner coordinator

Gabe Ross said they

were starting to “haul them in,”

with 23 caught in February.

“The animals start to look

for new sources of food, as the

weather cools and the autumn

bounty starts to disappear.”

Esplanade resident Phil

Loughnan has single-handedly

SWEET TOOTH: This rat

couldn’t resist the bait –

Whittaker’s peanut chocolate.

nabbed 13 rats at or near his

home at the western end of

Scarborough Beach.

There were also five hedgehogs

caught last month.

It brings the total catch to 117

since the programme started in

October.

Mr Ross said while the numbers

might not seem that high

– there are 178 traps in the area –

“we are dealing with varying levels

of enthusiasm and expertise

in both trapping and reporting,

so it is a good start.”

Predator Free Sumner last year

received a Kiwibank grant to

subsidise 140 traps in the greater

Sumner area, from Clifton Hill

to Taylors Mistake.

Co-ordinator Gabe Ross said

the uptake in the community

had been excellent.

But educating people about

keeping traps set all the time,

how best to keep them baited

and what baits to use was ongoing,

he said.

“It’s a learning process we’re all

going through.”

Trap numbers would have

to increase if Sumner was to

become predator free.

PREDATORS: A ‘heatmap’ of catches since October – the red

spots indicate areas where a lot of pests have been caught.

He estimated a fifth of households

would need to be actively

trapping.

“We’re well below that at present.

If we were just to cover the

valley floor, it would take about

300 rat traps, evenly spaced. That

would be a pretty great start.”

The group is looking at funding

and sponsorship opportunities to

increase their trap stocks.

They were also looking at

holding a ‘build-your-own-trap’

workshop.

In the meantime, Mr Ross

said people can get in touch for

advice and information:

Council seeks future use for Banks

• By Sarla Donovan

IDEAS ARE being sought for

the future use of four heritage

buildings on Banks Peninsula.

They are the Lyttelton Borough

Council stables in Lyttelton; Yew

Cottage in Akaroa; the Little

River Coronation Library and

Kukupa Hostel in Pigeon Bay.

Individuals, groups and

organisations interested in using

or helping to fund the buildings’

restoration have until March

29 to submit ideas to the city

council.

Most sustained damage in the

September 2010, and February

2011, Canterbury earthquakes

and are yet to be repaired.

“Unfortunately, we don’t have

enough money right now to

repair all our heritage buildings

within the next few years, so

we need to prioritise how these

funds should be spent,’’ city

council acting head of parks

Brent Smith said.

Lyttelton resident and former

property manager at The

Tannery, Ian Knewstubb, said

the former stables should be

retained and eventually restored,

in spite of the cost.

“My oath – there’s so little left.

They don’t have to happen that

fast. The main thing is to hold on

to them.”

He said the building should

be made weather-tight and a

working party should be set up.

“In Italy, they just make sure

nothing happens to the (old)

buildings. If it takes 10, 20,

30, 40 years – that’s what it

takes. The major thing is to

hold on to them and establish

a working party to look at how

to maintain them as they are,

how to fund raise, and also to

establish what purpose they

should be put to.”

The stables were built in

1914 for councillors to lodge

their steeds; the horses were

replaced by motor vehicles

in 1939.

Estimates put the cost of

restoration at around $2.2

million.

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

Domain near the War Memorial Gates. ​

LANDMARK: Yew Cottage is known by Akaroa locals as Jeannie’s

Cottage in honour of long-term resident Jeannie Wendelborn.

Peninsula heritage buildings

The Little River Coronation

Library building has an estimated

minimum restoration cost

of $750,000 – however, this

figure is based on preliminary

investigations rather than

engineering costs, according to a

city council report.

The library was built to mark

the coronation of King George

V. It was opened in 1913, and it

remained in use as a library until

2000.

The former Kukupa School

building in Pigeon Bay – which

is a listed Heritage New Zealand

building – operated from 1878

until 1949. In 1951 it opened as

the Youth Hostel Association’s

first stand-alone hostel in New

Zealand.

Akaroa’s Yew Cottage is another

well-known landmark in need

of restoration. Built of locally

milled timber in 1877, it provides

a record of the lifestyle of early

colonial settlers.

Both properties are estimated

to cost around $250,000 each to

restore.

The city council said it welcomed

all “workable” proposals, including

those from commercial businesses,

community groups or charitable

trusts.

Tree removal ‘double standard’

•From page 1

However, Mr Sintes said the

real problem is the trees on the

estuary edge.

“It is a total inconsistency, as

there has been no motion from

city council to remove trees on

the estuary edge, which pose

equally as much of a safety risk,”

he said.

“The walking track in South

New Brighton would get a lot

more people than the Rawhiti

Domain one would . . . if you use

the same criteria that they have

used in the Rawhiti Domain on

the estuary edge, well

there shouldn’t be any trees left

there.”

Mr Sintes said the work

“reeks of a double standard”

and believes it may be due to an

agenda the city council has with

the estuary edge.

The city council wants to let

the estuary edge erode naturally

following damage to the erosion

protection from the earthquakes.

The community board wants to

protect it in order to preserve as

much of the domain as possible.

“This (trees becoming

damaged) is never going to stop

on the estuary edge until they

protect it,” Mr Sintes said.

City council acting head

of parks Kay Holder said on

Thursday the estuary edge is

ST ANNE’S School has welcomed seven new

pupils to its school recently.

The school has a science focus this term

and the new entrant class has been doing a

lot of learning about mixing, melting and

dissolving.

The pupils have made a lot of mixtures and

then separated them with a sieve.

When they melted ice they discovered

they could melt it quickly in their mouths

and when they melted sugar it turned into

toffee.

to do well [at Maadi],” she said.

“We have 15 rowers

representing us, mostly in

smaller boats. We don’t have

Award for basketball official

• By Andrew King

PIONEER Basketball Club’s

Matthew Bathurst

won the Blackwells

Holden outstanding

official of the year at

the Nexia New Zealand

Canterbury Sports

Awards.

The 29-year-old was

crowned the top referee

in the National Basketball

League last year and

has been selected as an

official for the upcoming

Commonwealth Games in the

Gold Coast next month.

He was up against GymSports

Toby Levine and hockey’s Gareth

Greenfield.

He said he was reminded of

the award nomination midway

through last week

and he quickly got

his suit dry-cleaned

just in case.

“It was quite a

surprise to win,” he

said.

He said the award

caught him so off

guard, he didn’t have

time to think of who

he would thank for

helping him get to

where he is today.

“I should have thanked Linda

van Oosten, Karin Berryman

and Stephanie Eldrid who were

Matthew

Bathurst

some of my first mentors and

taught me a lot about reffing,”

he said.

“Also former head of NZNBL

referee’s Alan Godden who

gave me my first opportunity

at that level, BBNZ referee coordinator

Melony Welleans and

current head of referees at

NZNBL Peter Rogers.”

He will head for the Gold

Coast on April 2 to prepare for

the Commonwealth Games.

“It is my biggest competition

I have been to and I am looking

forward to the challenge,” he

said.

“I will be based in Townsville

then we meet in Brisbane for

the finals.”

Triathlon win for teen

• By Andrew King

CASHMERE High’s Morgan

while the under-16 team

also came first at the

Canterbury Secondary

Schools Triathlon.

Held in Scarborough,

athletes had a 350m swim

followed by a 9km bike ride

and finishing with a 3km

run.

Morgan (right) completed

the race in a time

of 38min 08.2sec, more

than a second faster than

Christchurch Girls’ High’s Paris

Carroll (39min 14.9sec) and Ngaio

Shaw (40min 50.9sec).

The under-16 team, made up

of Henry Clatworthy, Charlie

Hazlett and Thomas MacGibbon,

won their event in a time

of 32min 34.4sec ahead

of St Andrew’s College

under-16A (33min

36.4sec) and Geraldine

Boys’ (34min 33.9sec).

Head of triathlon ​

David Tuia said it was

good to see the young

athletes coming through

but more events were

needed.

“We want to keep the

momentum. We need to

get more [events] going to help the

sport grow. If we get more events,

we will see these kids really explode,”

he said.

What began life as a 1950s bungalow was

transformed in the 1970s when architecture

in Christchurch was breaking from the

constraints and traditions of the past to

create what is now a truly unique home.

What we have today is an avant-garde

home nestled into the sunny slopes above

Redcliffs. Not only does it bask in sunshine

it enjoys uninterrupted views across the

estuary and up the coastline. The magic of

the setting reflects the magic to be found

indoors. On 3 levels it provides space for

everyone and everything. The main central

floor comprises the entry from the carport

at the front door, open plan kitchen dining

and living, a study/play area, 2 double

bed-rooms which open to a spacious deck

area and a state of the art bathroom. Stairs

descend to a rumpus room/studio which

opens to a paved patio area giving access to

a landscaped contemporary hillside garden.

The upper level provides the main suite

comprising bedroom, en suite and dressing

room and expansive open living space with

floor to ceiling windows. This home exudes

contemporary style with an industrial

minimalist theme.

Open homes Sundays 1.45pm-2.30pm

and Thursdays 7.30pm-8pm.
