Park for

school

• By Sarla Donovan

GREATER Christchurch

Regeneration Minister Megan

Woods is seeking public feedback

on the proposal to rezone

Redcliffs Park as a school.

The city council last year agreed

to a land swap – which would

see it exchange the park for the

former Redcliffs School site on

Main Rd.

Regenerate Christchurch is

seeking to use its powers to rezone

the park as a school, and enable

the process to be fast tracked.

But it will be up to Dr Woods

to either approve or decline the

proposal.

If approved, the process of

rezoning the land would be completed

by the middle of this year,

with the school likely to be built

in 2019.

Both the city council and

Environment Canterbury have

raised concerns about building a

school on the park, part of which

is in a high flood management

zone.

I WAS lucky enough to visit the Okains Bay Museum last week.

Ian Day has been tasked with the job of bringing the museum

up to professional industry standards.

He seems like just the man for the job and was hugely

knowledgeable – and passionate – about the collections.

It is of national and international importance and I could see

why when I visited; spellbinding.

Photographer Martin Hunter and I popped down to the store

for a pie afterwards. We’d left it too late unfortunately and

they’d sold out, so we stopped at the Little River Diner instead.

Delicious.

Read about Ian Day and what he’s up to on page 4.

On another note, Christchurch Regeneration Minister Megan

Woods is asking for public comment on rezoning Redcliffs Park

as a school.

The saga continues. Make sure you have your say.

REDCLIFFS Pharmacy owner

Daryl Sayer is calling for more

parking restrictions in the

area.

There is only one park outside

his business – but it has no time

limit and vehicles sometimes

stay parked in it all day.

He said people enjoy

convenience and if there is no

car park available, they will

drive past.

“Restricting parking in a

small number of key areas in

Redcliffs will stop people from

using the parks longer-term (in

some cases all day), thus making

them more easily available for

someone who wishes to ‘pop in’

to a shop or business.”

Mr Sayer said the

implementation of p120 at

the eastern end of the village,

opposite the New World

supermaket had prompted him

to take action.

He has approached the

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board and is

hoping the city council will

look at extending the

restrictions.

Business operators in

Redcliffs had been discussing

the topic for some time, Mr

Sayer said.

“We frequently have

customers commenting on the

availability (or lack) of the car

parks that are provided on the

street. We need to encourage

said.

bottom of a steep, winding road

Banks Peninsula.

It’s famous for a picturesque

Two thousand people packed

into the small settlement on

February 6 this year, eager to

catch sight of the magnificent

waka paddling up the Opara

River, hear the powhiri – and

see the museum’s renowned

collection of Maori artefacts.

Amassed over a lifetime by

local farmer Murray Thacker, it

is internationally famous, with

one of the biggest selections of

hei-tiki in the country, a superb

collection of cloaks, some going

back 200 years, and many rare

kete and taiaha.

Six huia bird can be seen

there, when only 150 remain

worldwide and just 60 of those in

The fineness and rarity of the

North Islander Ian Day to

take up a recently established

directorship position at the

museum last year.

History and traditional skills

OKAINS BAY farmer Murray Thacker, who died last

year, started collecting at the age of 11 and it quickly

became a lifetime passion.

In 1968 he bought the old dairy factory to house

his collection, opening the Okains Bay Maori and

Historical Museum in 1977.

Much of the carving on site was created specifically

by master carver John Rua, who began attending Van

Asch School for the Deaf as a child.

It was at Van Asch that he began learning woodwork

and carved sea creatures, kiwi and zoo animals.

His work was later shown in an exhibition, whereupon

he met master carver Hone Te Kauru Taiapa,

who invited him to learn traditional Toi Whakairo at

the New Zealand Institute for Maori Arts and Crafts

in Rotorua.

Mr Rua graduated with honours in 1972 and two

years later began carving for the Okains Bay museum,

later shifting to Christchurch where he set up his own

business at the Artist’s Quarters in Oxford Tce.

In 1980 he began work on the meeting house and

dining room at Ngā Hau E Whā National Marae in

Pages Rd.

MASTER CARVER:John

Residents

looking

after the

little things,

writes

Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community

Board member Darrell

Latham

THEY SAY: “Don’t sweat the

small stuff.’’ Don’t believe it. It

is rubbish. Residents want the

small stuff done.

My mission recently was to

gather information on outstanding

maintenance matters

associated with greenspaces and

streets.

Why? Because, community

board members have noticed an

increase in maintenance matters

being brought to their attention

by residents. Your city council

needs to act on these and other

local matters that you have identified.

You pay your city council

many thousands of your hard

earned dollars in rates and your

voice needs to be heard. Well,

maybe you have been shouting

out but, has the city council been

listening to you?

As a board member my mission

was to focus on the maintenance

needs of my local area of

Sumner and Redcliffs. Both local

residents associations worked in

with me.

Feedback was swift and decisive.

Both communities were

well aware of what the outstanding

issues were. Responses were

hardly rocket science. I would

describe them as basic 101 routine

maintenance requirements.

Street cleaning, particularly in

the Redcliffs Village Centre has

been inadequate recently with litter

seen to be left in the gutters and

on pavements for long periods.

Coincidentally, the same has been

happening in Sumner as well.

Main Rd in Redcliffs is in

poor condition and it needs resurfacing.

Reinstatement of the

grassed area along Beachville

Rd esplanade is required. As

well, Barnett Park is seriously in

need of adequate routine maintenance.

Sumner residents expressed

concern about potholes along

the esplanade and streets; weeds

in gardens and reserves as well

as the removal of built up rubbish

and footpaths that need

repair.

In both areas there are many

other issues and the above are

but a snapshot.

This is how I interpret the

message from residents to the

city council: can we have our

basic needs met? Clean streets,

pothole-free footpaths, and

better roads. Better maintained

parks and garden spaces are also

important to us. It really would

make a difference and our communities

would be better places

to live in.

Christchurch city council - as

well as the big picture ‘blue sky’

thinking don’t forget to “sweat

the small stuff” and get the very

basic things done for us.

We said:

Lowered speeds on

Dyers Pass Rd are a step

closer. But no-passing

lines will only be installed

You said:

Brett Malzard – I don’t

think changing a number on a

sign will change a lot. Hard road

to police, no pullovers. I don’t

think it will change people’s habits

at all. Lowering speed limits

doesn’t work. If you can’t admit

that you’re lying to yourself. The

solution needs to be outside the

box. Eliminate one of the congestions

on the road. I’m not picking

on cyclists, they deserve to be

there. But why not give them an

alternate route up the hill? That

would be a positive for everybody

that uses the roads.

Chris Odell – Yes, it needs to

be slower. I used to frequent that

road and some people’s driving

up there is pretty terrifying.

Paula Wilkinson – I’ve

been driving the road for

almost 40 years and have

seen some horrendous

driving in that time. I doubt

double yellow lines will

prevent drivers with road

rage overtaking on blind

corners. I am certain that

lowering the speed limit

won’t prevent speeding. The

only solution I can see is

a dedicated cycle lane and

more pullovers, with more

signage saying: “Traffic behind?

Pull over and let them

pass.” The Takaka Hill is a

great example of making

the driving experience more

pleasurable in this beautiful

country of ours.

Ross Denton – There

must be the opportunity

to safely pass other cars

and bicycles. Being stuck

behind a slow cyclist or car

and no opportunity to pass

will lead to exactly the type

of driving these restrictions

are trying to prevent.

We said:

The new location

of the skate ramp in

Sumner is concerning

residents.

You said:

Elizabeth Chapman

– While I agree the young

should have a skateboard

ramp I found it incomprehensible

that a ramp should

be put on the intersection

of two very busy roads in

Sumner. Not only is it a

distraction to drivers but

is dangerous for the kids

being so near the road. The

wooden fence has made it

a little more attractive but

it is otherwise unsightly in

what was an area that could

have had more greenery

to enhance the look of the

village.

Janet Stokes – I

almost hit two children

before school in that intersection

(they were probably

about seven or eight years

old) and again after school

too. I slowed right down

and they still ran out in

front of me. It scares me

that I will actually hit

someone.

Graeme Brown – So

instead of teaching kids

the road rules we will just

change them. The dumbing

down of society is still on

the move. I need to buy

shares in a cotton wool

factory.

Darren Fidler – Isn’t

that the point of slower

speeds? Still focus on road

sense education, but as a

back up have lower speeds

so that if a kid does make a

judgement error they don’t

die because of it.

Peter Davies said the community

the Canterbury West Coast

Air Rescue and wanted to contribute

to an upgraded helipad

facility.

Jenna Janes was seven when

she was taken to the medical

She was flown to hospital

would have taken at least

45min by road.

Her mother Tracey Janes

said she went with her daughter

in the helicopter.

“When we landed in Hagley

Park there were rugby games

going on so they were clearing

pitches . . . it was bizarre!”

It was hugely reassuring

knowing the service was there,

said Ms Janes.

“It only takes an accident

or a pothole on the road and

it can take an hour. Pete and

doctors) know their stuff and

Charity fundraising group

the Maia Health Foundation

recently launched a campaign

to raise $500,000 to upgrade a

to be built atop the west tower

of Christchurch Hospital’s

The 13-Minute campaign

is named for the time it takes

to get patients to the hospital

from the current landing pad

in Hagley Park.

Plans for the hospital’s

new building include a single

rooftop helipad, but the foundation

believes a larger pad is

needed for future growth.

It will cost $1 million for the

upgrade but the Rata Foundation

has promised to donate

$500,000 towards the helipad

if the Māia Foundation can

raise the other $500,000.

The money would mean

a pad capable of holding

two helicopters could be built,

along with an elevator leading

directly from the roof to the

emergency department and

intensive care unit.

A medical stabilising facility

is also proposed to be built

on the roof to give patients

oxygen and other treatments

as soon as they leave the helicopter.

Dr Davies said they wanted

to help out, so a plan has been

hatched to buy a (model)

helicopter and carry it on a

32km walking relay around

Stoddart Point Reserve on

April 7.

Walkers will be sponsored

to take part.

Thirty two kilometres is

the distance from Diamond

Harbour to the hospital.

centre are all involved.

“We concluded that, on

Your Local Cruise Specialists.

House of Travel Ferrymead.

Our team have either worked onboard, visited or personally cruised on all major cruise lines. This is invaluable when

it comes to picking an ocean cruise, river cruise or sailing experience to meet your expectations. We are so excited

for the cruise ships to come back to Lyttelton as we often get the opportunity to invite clients on board for a visit

and there is no better way to appreciate the options available. Make sure you join our new Sail Away club to stay up

to date with all developments and specials relating to cruising and we are holding a special ‘Cruising 101’ evening in

store on Wednesday 21 March if you are wanting to find out more.

Mel Hubber Kim Beswick Melissa May

Owner Operator Owner Operator Travel Specialist

Exploring by sea is one of the greatest forms of travel I have

experienced. I have sailed from France around Corsica and

the Greek islands on a 130 foot luxury yacht which gave me a

great insight to some of the most beautiful ports and marinas in

the world. River cruising is also a favourite and I have cruised

the Rhine with Uniworld as well as the Christmas markets from

Prague to Vienna with Avalon waterways. I also explored the

beautiful islands of Croatia with Katarina Lines.

Having worked on cruise ships for 8 years my first hand cruise

experience & knowledge is extensive. I have literally cruised to

all oceans and continents around the world, on large, medium

and small sized ships. Favourite cruise destinations for me are

the Caribbean, Norwegian Fjords, Mediterranean and Antarctica.

Recently I have also experienced a river cruise on the Rhine with

Avalon Waterways & am looking forward to returning to Alaska

this year and revisiting my first ever cruise region.

Cruising is one of my favourite ways to holiday as it allows you to

do as much or as little as you like and getting the variety of visiting

a range of destinations without the hassle of changing hotels

and catching flights. I have been lucky enough to cruise on a few

different cruise lines to a few different destinations, however one

of my favourites is cruising in the South Pacific. You can board

the ship in Auckland or Australia and get to visit some untouched

tropical Islands that you may not normally be able to get to.

I love cruising! I’ve been fortunate enough to go on a few

cruises, including a P&O one up the East Coast of Australia

and one around the Greek Islands and Turkey. However, my

favourite trip onboard a boat was a Sail Croatia trip. This was

great way to travel! I really liked that you only had to unpack

once, got to swim and relax during the day, and at night you

could go and explore one of the various islands. I have a huge

passion for travel and love exploring new destinations.

I was lucky enough to sail the seven seas as a working crew

member on board various size ships around the world for

5 years, to then be a guest onboard a Turkish Gulet sail trip

along the Turquoise Coast to most recently an ocean cruise

travelling solo in the Caribbean. Cruising offers something for

everyone and now I get to inspire people to choose the right

Cruise for them. To me travel is addictive, it’s an awe inspiring

journey of discovery which fuels the soul & makes you richer.

Cruising is a fantastic way to see the world! I love both the

small ship experience, on board a yacht round the coast

line of Croatia, as well as the bigger ship I was fortunate

enough to enjoy up in the Baltics. Nothing beats unpacking

once and arriving at a new destination each morning,

relaxed and ready to explore. Travel is my passion & I love

helping clients create an unforgettable experience that is

uniquely their own!

I have travelled to over 40 different countries and my “to-do”

list is forever growing! My favourite cruise experience was

sipping cocktails made by the Robot Bartender on Royal

cruise with Hurtigruten, an authentic mail ship that travels

around the beautiful Norwegian Fjords.

SIXTY EIGHT Canterbury

women, from high school

students to Government

ministers, gathered for an

International Women’s Day

breakfast on Thursday.

The event was organised

by women in the Port Hills

branch of the Labour and Green

parties.

Held at Mt Pleasant

Memorial Community Centre,

the guests took part in a livestreaming

event from the banquet

hall in Parliament hosted

by governor-general, Dame

Patsy Reddy.

One of the event organisers,

Rosemary Neave said the

highlight of the livestream was a

conversation between National

Council of Women chairwoman

Gill Greer and former Prime

Minister Helen Clark.

Ms Clark spoke of the need for

women to be resilient as there

were no red carpets laid out for

them.

“You have to roll out your own

carpet, and kick the door down,”

she said.

Change required hard work in

competitive environments, she

said, and if there were knockbacks,

you had to use your courage

to find better things to get

involved in.

She also noted that in a global

context, New Zealand women

lived in a bubble, having broken

through to become prime

minister, chief justice, governorgeneral

and CEOs.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Sumner sites

favoured for

skate park

• By Sarla Donovan

THERE APPEARS to be little

appetite for a bays area skate

park outside Sumner, if feedback

from a community workshop is

anything to go by.

The four proposed sites for

a permanent skate park are 26

Nayland St, Sumner Beach (next

to the Surf Life Saving Club,) the

former Redcliffs School site and

Scott Park in Ferrymead.

Feedback from a workshop held

last month showed Redcliffs had

just three positive comments and

Scott Park nine, compared with 29

for the Nayland St location and 16

for the Sumner Beach site.

City council staff are currently

analysing submissions and a decision

will be made on April 30 by

the Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board.

Meanwhile, Sumner Green and

Skate are fundraising to pay for

safety landscaping, seating and

planting around the temporary

skate ramp.

been set up to support

the cause with more than

$1000 already donated. Visit

LANDING: Tom Denman leaps out of the Sumner IRB with Steven Parratt on-board.

SPEED: Jake Simpson sprints towards the beach.

Third place for Sumner surf lifesavers

• By Gordon Findlater

SUMNER WERE the best of

the Christchurch clubs at the

South Island Inflatable Rescue

Boat Championship which was

dominated by two Dunedin

clubs at the weekend.

St Kilda narrowly retained

their title at Warrington Beach

by finishing ahead of Dunedin

neighbours St Clair. Sumner

rounded out the top three.

The annual event was attended

by close to 40 crews from 10 surf

lifesaving clubs, predominately

from the South Island.

Sumner captured 14 top-three

finishes while Taylors Mistake’s

young crews had two top-three

finishes.

The highlight for Sumner was

a one-two finish in the open

women’s assembly rescue. The

crew of Kate Suter, Melissa Patterson

and Tia Rosengrave took

honours by pipping the other

Sumner crew of Jade Jeffery, Katie

Plom and Hannah Bayliss.

Sumner also had a win in the

under-22 men’s tube rescue. The

crew of Jake Simpson, Gareth

Evans, Sophie Berrill edged out

two North Beach crews to take

the title.

“We were pretty rapt with how

we went. The Dunedin clubs

were very strong and we did well

with a young team,’’ said team

manager Alastair Malcolm.

Waves up to 50cm and light

winds made for some close and

exciting racing from all of the

crews.

the number of event entries. Surf

Life Saving New Zealand sport

manager Mike Lord says it was

great to see the change in age

groups with good numbers

across most divisions creating

some tight racing.

“We couldn’t have asked for

a better day on the beach, with

awesome weather, surf, sun and

great racing. A massive thanks

to the officials, water crews and

volunteers who made the day a

real success,” said Lord.

The BP South Island IRB

Championships followed the

North Island IRB Championships,

held in Taranaki last

month.

The crews now have just under

a month to prepare for the finale

of the New Zealand IRB Championships

which is set to take

place at Waihi Beach on April 7

and 8 to decide the honour of top

IRB racers in the country.

A number of local surf lifesavers

will also travel north this

week for the sport’s biggest

annual event. The New Zealand

Surf Life Saving Championships

begin on Gisborne’s Midway

Beach on Thursday.

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

What’s important for Christchurch

over the next 10 years?

Have your say on our Long Term Plan

Every three years we review our 10-year plan. We want your views on how best to manage the infrastructure and services that make

Christchurch work. We outline our priorities, our projects and how we propose to pay for it all. This is an opportunity to have your say.

Repairing our pipes and roads remains a high priority.

We need to keep the city running and provide libraries,

community facilities and events we enjoy. Rates are our main

source of income. Our assets also provide revenue.

To prioritise essential infrastructure work we are proposing a

5.5 per cent increase to the average rate in the 2018–19 financial

year with a view to a gradual decline in the rate of increase in

the following years.

We know the state of our roads is a huge

frustration in the city’s recovery. We want

to prioritise road repairs. We’re also taking

the opportunity to re-design our network of

cycleways, footpaths and traffic controls to

make it safer for everyone and to reduce

traffic congestion.

Transport network

$1049m

Stormwater and

flood protection

$678m

Some parts of Christchurch are

more flood-prone. We want to

reduce the flood risk to homes and

businesses.

Whatever goes into our gutters can

end up in our rivers so you can help

clean up the stormwater.

We expect a large number of workers to

return to the central city. If they all travel

in a single occupant vehicle our roads will

become more congested.

Community facilities are important

because they bring people together.

We’ll complete or progress a wide range

of projects, our priorities are:

• Social housing renewals and replacements

• Library resources

• Recreation and sport buildings and

plant renewals

• Hornby library, customer services and

south-west leisure centre

• Recreation and sports grounds renewals

• Ngā Puna Wai sports hub Stage 1

• Linwood Woolston Aquatic Facility

• Performing Arts Precinct

• New Brighton Hot Pools

Community facilities

• Metro Sports Facility (Council’s share under

agreement with the Crown)

• Multi-use Arena (Council’s share under

agreement with the Crown).

$835m

Here are our key

projects – what we

are repairing and

building over the

next 10 years

Parks and heritage

$267m

We are a city of parks and gardens boasting a

network of 130km of walking and mountain bike

tracks that we propose to maintain and improve.

We plan to delay repairing the Canterbury

Provincial Council Buildings until 2029 because

the project will cost an estimated $204 million.

Wastewater

$641m

Drinking water

$495m

We enjoy high quality drinking

water. We need to protect this

by replacing damaged pipes

and ensuring that our

well-heads are secure.

Our network of pipes carry water from

kitchens and bathrooms. We’ll provide

for population growth but put on

hold the work to replace wastewater

infrastructure to free up funding to

improve roads. This means in wet

weather there could be more

overflows. Is this acceptable?

Have we got the priorities right?

Newly constructed in 2015 and enjoying an

elevated position that overlooks the tranquil

coastal scenery is this three-bedroom home

which has been carefully designed to ensure

comfort and effortless everyday living.

Securely located behind electric gates and

with wheelchair accessibility thoughtfully

considered, this north-facing home is ideally

sheltered from the dreaded easterly which

allows for superb twilight entertaining out on

the balcony.

The central focus of day-to-day living is

the highly functional open plan area which

features a galley-style kitchen that naturally

extends down to the dining area and lounge

which soak up the peaceful surroundings.

This space is sundrenched and warmed by

a heat pump and an electric wall heater which

provide year-round comfort, and on balmy

evenings you can always slide back the doors

which offer a seamless connection out to the

balcony where you can kick back and indulge

in those magnificent views.

Three bedrooms provide accommodation

and are serviced by two bathrooms, one of

which is an ensuite off the master bedroom

while another bedroom has direct access onto

the balcony.

Ample off-street parking supplements

the oversized garage which also hosts an

additional toilet, while a low-maintenance

level lawn provides an alternative backdrop

that will be enjoyed by children and pets alike.

Peacefully removed yet conveniently

situated near the countless amenities in both

Redcliffs and Ferrymead this home is also

within several hundred metres of Mt Pleasant

School which is a bonus for any growing

family.

Purchasers who are seeking the peace of

mind of a new-build paired with this peaceful

Mount Pleasant setting will undoubtedly be

attracted to this enticing property.

This property has been in the family for 69

years, now an estate realization.

Open Home Dates: Wednesday, Saturday

and Sunday 12.00pm – 12.45pm until

auction day. See you at one of the Open

Days, or for a private viewing or for more
