Banks

Peninsula

in line to

become

NZ’s first

geopark

• By Sarla Donovan

BANKS PENINSULA could

become New Zealand’s first

‘geopark’, alongside worldrenowned

sites like Ireland’s cliffs

of Moher.

The area’s unusual geology

makes it worthy of joining

an international network of

similarly significant landscapes,

a Canterbury University scientist

said on Monday.

Sam Hampton was outlining

the Paihere Geopark Project to

members of the Banks Peninsula

Community Board.

The geological sciences

lecturer said gaining United

Nations Educational, Scientific

and Cultural Organisationaccredited

geopark status had the

potential to stimulate tourism

and bring branding benefits to

Canterbury.

Geoparks have UNESCO

badges which give them the same

status as world heritage sites like

the United States’ Grand Canyon.

THAT’S A sight to behold on the front

page today – the Timeball tower almost

complete.

Heritage New Zealand and others

involved in getting this iconic part of

Canterbury’s history back in shape deserve

many accolades for the work they have put in.

Rebuilding the complete station that was wrecked in the

earthquakes wasn’t feasible. But there has been tremendous

support for the $3 million it will cost to complete the tower

restoration. It has been financed by Heritage NZ, Holcim,

Landmark Inc, the Lottery Grants Board, Stout Trust and

Parkinson Memorial Park Trust, the Mainland Foundation and

community donations.

Filmmaker records candidates

• By Sarla Donovan

GOVERNORS BAY filmmaker

Tony Simpson is turning his

hand to politics.

In a filmic sense that is.

The Kiwi Christmas director

has joined forces with film

editor Scott Flyger to record

candidates for the upcoming

Banks Peninsula Community

Board by-election.

The five aspirants talk about

their experiences, skills and vision,

along with some personal

background information.

And it’s all posted online.

Mr Simpson said he wanted a

better way of getting to know get

to know candidates than wading

through a booklet.

“You flick through it and go,

‘I can’t be bothered reading

all of this because there’s so

many people to get to know.’

In this day and age there has

to be a better way. I thought,

what if you could just look on

your phone? Everybody’s got a

smartphone these days. The byelection

in Lyttelton was right

on the back door step and with

only a few people it seemed an

ideal place to try it out and proof

the concept,” he said.

Both the board and the candidates

have embraced the idea.

Tyrone Fields said it had been

ON CAMERA: Tony Simpson films candidate Tyrone Fields. ​

an interesting process. “We were

all probably a little bit amateur

when it comes to presenting on

camera.”

Mr Simpson said he wanted

to bring the election system into

the 21st-century and use technology

to increase the number

of voters.

“I’m keen to vote for someone

to represent me but I don’t

know who they are. And

reading something in a booklet

isn’t quite the same as seeing

someone in person, presenting

themselves and getting their

ideas across. It’s amazing how

quickly you can get to know

someone in a short sequence

like this. I’m quite excited about

it.”

And if it comes off, he’d love

to see something similar rolled

out for next year’s local body

elections.

statements online, go to

sent to Lyttelton residents

this week and voting closes

CHLORINE ROLL OUT

Chlorine is due to be added to

are chlorinated, the temporary

Temporary repairs will be

Banks Peninsula may become geopark

•From page 1

UNESCO started developing

the idea of geoparks in 2001, with

the aim of showcasing landscapes

with outstanding geological

significance.

There are 127 geoparks in 35

countries worldwide, but none as

yet in New Zealand.

Banks Peninsula had some

unique geologic properties which

made it suitable for a geopark, Dr

Hampton said.

“From a satellite view, you can

see that the landscapes of the

volcano’s are very distinct with

the bays and harbours. We’ve got

a relatively recent geologic connection

to the mainland, ecologically

it’s been an island, so there’s

distinct flora and fauna that only

reside on Banks Peninsula.”

There were also different

cultural aspects in the way Maori

and European had colonised the

area, with pa sites and villages

still visible within the landscape,

as are various stages of European

settlement, from whaling to

forestry and farming.

“It’s about looking at Banks

Peninsula in archaeological slices

so you can go back in time and

look at the different levels of

CELEBRATED: Ireland’s cliffs of Moher are among 127 UNESCO geoparks worldwide.

the landscape and how it’s been

influenced.”

The Paihere Geopark Project

made a submission to UNESCO

this month, asking that the area

be considered for recognition.

It follows a recent move from

the New Zealand National Commission

for UNESCO to establish

a Global Geoparks programme

here.

Expressions of interest close at

the end of April, with shortlisted

applicants then invited to develop

harbours of Banks Peninsula,

which may become New

Zealand’s first geopark, were

volcanic eruptions.

a full dossier.

Waitaki and “possibly Waitomo”

were looking at putting

submissions in as well, said Dr

Hampton.

Kaikoura had been mooted,

but he was unsure whether a submission

had been put forward.

Dr Hampton said Paihere

was runanga-driven and it was

“quite a unique thing” to have an

indigenous-backed proposal.

Scott Park revamp plan solves access issues

• By Sarla Donovan

NEW LANDSCAPE plans for

Scott Park are designed to make

it more accessible to the public.

The park’s layout has been criticised

for being poorly-designed

and appearing to block access to

the foreshore.

A working group, set up to

look at enhancing the park’s appeal

and usability, met to look at

draft concept drawings last week.

The group is comprised of representatives

from the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board, Coastal Pathway Group,

Mt Pleasant Yacht Club and Canterbury

Windsports Association.

The draft drawings show a

reduced amount of bare gravel

and square angles, more defined

car parking and better provision

of space for people to stop and

picnic, with seating, tables and

provision of planting to provide

shelter from easterly winds. An

accessible ramp opposite the St

Andrews Hill pedestrian crossing

will lead down to the water

and to a pontoon below the

Ferrymead bridge. An extended

beach area will allow wind surfers

to launch more easily.

Working group member Tim

Lindley said the process was going

very well.

“At the start, there was sort

of a tension between watersport

users and people who wanted to

use the park for other activities.

But I’d have to say that the draft

design that’s been developed is

quite impressive,” he said.

“The plan is to give the public

good access around the waterfront

and invite them in, but at

the same time, doing it in ways

that they need to be cautious

because there’s watersports going

Park is designed to give

on. So it meets both needs.”

The plan will have some minor

“tweaking” before going out for

public consultation, said Mr

Lindley.

That should happen within the

next few months, he said.

There is $150,000 in the Long

Term Plan for the work to take

place next year.

Views on Redcliffs village collected

• By Sarla Donovan

MORE THAN 40 people gave

feedback at public drop-in

sessions on the Redcliffs village

enhancement plans last week.

With $480,000 set aside for

amenity upgrades and beautification,

the city council is consulting

on what the community

wants to see happen in the area.

An additional $408,000 is

earmarked for a car park, pedestrian

crossing and bus stop on

the south side of Moncks Bay,

past the Christchurch Yacht

Club building.

Redcliffs Residents

Association member Peter Croft

said he wanted to see “changes

and alterations that are for the

benefit of the village, so people

can stop, shop and enjoy their

surroundings. Some proper,

nice landscaping to the standard

we see in Sumner.”

He also asked for reduced

speeds through the village

and small speed bumps at the

entrance.

Moncks Bay residents

Sheryl and Matt Sawyer were

at the final drop-in session

held at Redcliffs Library last

Wednesday.

They had scootered around

from their home to talk about

their ideas for the village.

Sculptures, colour-coded

smart rubbish bins and coastal

pathway information boards

were some of the items on their

wish list.

“And if they’re putting trees in

around the seating area, I’d like

them to be bird-friendly. Maybe

fruit trees?’ said Mrs Sawyer.

Redcliffs Residents

Association secretary Pat

McIntosh was also at the

Wednesday session, dropping in

on her way home from work.

She wanted to know whether

toilets could be included in the

plans, as the village had been

without a public loo since the

Barnett Park toilet block was

destroyed in the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

And she questioned the need

for a 20-space car park in Moncks

Bay.

“The amount of money is

almost as much as is being spent

on the entire village. Why is

that necessary? I’ve never heard

any resident say they wanted a

Meanwhile, commuters could

be waiting up to a year for the

McCormacks Bay causeway

and Taupata St, Redcliffs, to be

resurfaced.

The section is currently scheduled

for resurfacing between

October and April 2019.

Six-month time frame for

clock tower scaffolding

• By Sarla Donovan

SCAFFOLDING around

the Scarborough clock

tower could be there for

another six months.

The scaffolding was

installed last month at a

cost of $280 per week, but

repair work is yet to begin.

However, city council

head of parks Brent Smith

said investigation and

testing had been carried

out and the scaffold was

required to allow this to

occur.

The concrete has been

tested for chlorides and

once results are known the

scope of repair work will

be finalised and put out

for tender.

“In addition to the concrete

and tower repairs, all

four clock faces and mechanisms

will be removed to

allow full restoration off

site. We hope to remove

the clock faces in May,”

Mr Smith said.

RESTORATION: Scaffolding around the

Scarborough clock tower will stay in place until test

results on the concrete come back.

The scaffolding could

be in place for up to six

months, however, this

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Sarla Donovan

THE DEVELOPER of a

13-section subdivision on Bridle

Path Rd has lost his bid to name

a private right-of-way Reynard –

the French word for Fox.

It will instead carry the name

Kairūri Lane – Kairūri is the te

reo word for surveyor.

But Fox Associates founder

David Fox said he was just

pleased to have finally got a

name – which recognises the

contribution surveyors have

made to the city.

Because Fox is used elsewhere

in Christchurch, he asked for the

right-of-way at 22 Bridle Path Rd

to be called Reynard Lane.

In his application, Mr Fox said

that since starting as a surveyor

in 1960, he had continued the

work of earlier surveyors in the

design and development of the

city.

“I started with Cass Bay and

Soleares Ave back in the 1960s

and over the last 58 years have

been involved in the creation,

design, and development of

more than 1000 sections on the

Port Hills from Kennedys Bush

to Sumner.”

But the Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

said the name “didn’t reflect the

surrounding historical area,”

DEVELOPMENT: David Fox at the entrance to Kairuru Lane.

PHOTO: GILBERT WEALLEANS

and asked Mr Fox to submit an

alternative.

Kairuru was chosen because it

linked to the theme of surveying.

Heathcote Ward city councillor

Sara Templeton said the

name was “appropriate for this

early settled part of Christchurch.”

Under the city council’s roads

and rights of way naming policy,

subdivision developers submit

names with the consent application.

Mr Fox said getting the name

had taken a month longer than

anticipated due to the board’s

initial rejection of Reynard.

Three of the sections have

already sold and formation

work completed for the right-ofway.

UPGRADE: An artist’s impression of the new social housing

units to be built in Akaroa. ​

New social housing units

to be built in Akaroa

THREE SOCIAL housing units

in Akaroa will be demolished to

make way for five new ones.

The old Bruce Tce units,

which were temporarily

repaired following the earthquakes,

will be demolished once

the new units are built, allowing

tenants to remain in place before

moving in later this year.

A blessing and groundbreaking

ceremony was held at

the complex on Friday.

Social, community development

and housing committee

chairman Phil Clearwater said

the city council was rebuilding

a higher standard of housing for

those in need.

“The new units are warm,

energy-efficient and Lifemark

accredited, which means

they’re ready to cater to tenants’

changing needs over their

lifetimes. Even if a tenant’s

accessibility or mobility needs

change due to health or age,

they can keep living in their

unit and remain within their

community, which offers peace

of mind and stability,” he said.

The new units – four

one-bedroom and one twobedroom

– will be insulated

beyond building code

requirements and feature

double glazing, wider pathways

and doorways, a sizeable

outdoor greenspace area and

additional parking.

The design and colour

schemes have been chosen to

reflect the character and heritage

of Akaroa township.

We said:

Anglers’ discarded hooks

Roger Ellery responds to

a recent Soapbox article by

Redcliffs School board of

trustees chairman Darren

Fidler

I admire Mr Fidler’s enthusiasm

to get Redcliffs School back

to Redcliffs. However, the article

in the April 11 Bay Harbour

News does not do anything to

alleviate my concerns about the

NEW LOCATION: Redcliffs School board of trustees chairman Darren Fidler (inset) says the Ministry of Education and

Government have made it clear that the only way Redcliffs School can return to the suburb without further significant delay is

to relocate to Redcliffs Park.

proposed use of Redcliffs Park as

a site for a school.

Redcliffs Park is fully utilised

as an important public amenity.

It is not vacant land that is available

for any other use.

Furthermore, I take issue with

some of the statements made.

Firstly, the Labour Government

can return the school back to the

old site quite quickly.

That’s the position our

MP claimed to support so let’s

see if they can do it? There is no

valid reason why they can’t.

Secondly, I don’t believe the

MoE had any intention to rebuild

on the old site any time soon. If

they must do a new build then do

it on the old site adjacent to Main

Rd just like the new building that

is proposed for Redcliffs Park.

Thirdly, the comments about

the Coastal Pathway as use for

access to the school are just

disingenuous nonsense in my

opinion. Are parents really going

to stop driving their children to

school? I don’t think so.

Is there really going to be a lot

of children from Mt Pleasant? I

don’t think so (there is a school

at Mt Pleasant.)

Most children can get to the

old site without crossing Main

Rd at all. Finally, the old Main

Rd site does not offer the same

seaside (estuary) amenity as

Redcliffs Park does now.

Redcliffs Park is prime public

recreational space and can not be

adequately replaced with spare

vacant land at the old Main Rd

school site.

All told, I think the article is

shoddy work and should be retracted.

Go back to the old site or

Barnett Park and get it right.

Unique gift shop for men

Air, Sea and Land Gallery

Buying gifts for men often poses a problem

– the choice between socks and aftershave

doesn’t seem much of a choice, somehow.

However, thanks to a unique shop in

London Street, Lyttelton, the problem

can be easily solved. Air, Sea & Land has a

huge array of fascinating items based on

that theme, and with a general ‘boy’s own

adventure’ feel about it, too.

Owners Malcolm and Anne Carne have

been running their gift shop and picture

framing business in the port township

for 18 years, and 18 months ago, decided

to “reinvent” themselves by focusing on

merchandise that would appeal particularly

to men – although as Malcolm points out,

many women also find it fascinating.

Items with a sea or maritime theme include

a selection related to polar exploration

(Antarctic explorers Scott and Shackleton

were both based out of Lyttelton), compasses,

and a replica diver’s helmet in brass and

copper.

The land theme is represented in die cast

model cars, motorbikes, scooters and other

vehicles, as well as items with a railway

connection, while aviation-related items

include books and a wide selection of framed

prints depicting wartime aircraft and many

others.

Other fascinating collectible items from

days gone by include framed collections of

original cigarette cards, which are at least 80

years old, while there is also a wide selection

of greeting cards with illustrations from the

1930s and ’40s.

Custom framing is the other aspect

of the business, and Malcolm is a

Guild Commended Framer, an English

qualification for which he was trained in

conservation framing. As he explains, this

means he has the knowledge and

experience to use the right materials and

methods to frame any type of artwork,

including valuable original art. With a

huge selection of mouldings and matt

boards, he will provide the right frame for

any artwork – original or print.

Sumner head into Anzac

Day match undefeated

• By Gordon Findlater

SUMNER HEAD into today’s

match against Burnside

undefeated after continuing their

good run of form in the Hawkins

Metro Premier Cup by beating

Sydenham on Saturday.

Their 35-20 win over

Sydenham was the first time

Sumner have defeated the ‘bus

drivers’ since moving to the

metro premier grade in 2010.

The Sumner wave came

out rolling and dominated

possession in the first half,

which coach Martin Dodgson

was quick to attribute to

the team’s attacking coach,

Gareth D’Almeida.

“He came up with a wicked

game plan,” said Dodgson.

While Sumner may have

their attack sorted, the club is

understood to be on the hunt

for a new meteorologist, after

making a weather prediction

that would have given Jim

Hickey nightmares.

“It was absolute genius

planning on my behalf,” joked

Dodgson.

“I said to Dylan [Nel] ‘win

the toss and take the howling

gale because it’s going to rain at

half-time’. And just before kick

off, it’s not a breath of wind and

boiling hot. He looked at me

and said he’s never listening to

me again.” In the unpredicted

dry conditions, Sumner piled

on three first half tries courtesy

of Hayden O’Donnell, Nel

and William Saukuru to lead

21-8 at the break. The home

side also started the second

40min relentlessly with second

half tries to Nel and Filimoni

Waqainabete.

However, Sydenham kept

coming back late in the game

to reduce the gap with two late

tries.

Sumner successfully addressed

their first-five injury dilemma

by playing back-up halfback

O’Donnell as first receiver.

“He’s played their a little bit

in the past . . . he’s just a really

chilled out guy and he actually

went really, really well,” said

Dodgson.

The team may have also

escaped a scare after centre

Wesley Mauafu left Saturday’s

game early due to a dislocated

shoulder.

The injury often comes with a

12-16 week recovery. However,

Mauafu appears to have struck a

lucky break.

“The physio did all the

strength tests on him afterwards

and said ‘his shoulder is as good

as new because it popped back in

really cleanly’,” said Dodgson.

It’s hoped he could even be in

contention for Sumner’s clash

with Burnside at St Leonards

Park today.

A busy eight days of rugby

will be concluded at St Leonards

when Sumner host fellow

table-toppers and competition

favourites Lincoln University on

Saturday.

WINNING PAIR: Isaac Boomer

and Jack Hansen-Ratter after

their title-winning performance

at Tennis Canterbury’s junior

championships.

SPORTS

SUMMER TENNIS Club

juniors were among the winners

at Tennis Canterbury’s junior

championships at Wilding Park

last week.

The all Sumner duo of Isaac

Boomer and Jack Hansen-

Ratter dominated the 10 and

under boys doubles competition,

dropping just three games

in their three matches. They

had victories of 4-1, 4-0 in the

quarter-final, and 4-0, 4-1 in

the semi-final to progress to

the final where they met Anzac

Robinson Hawkins and Jimmy

Rumble.

Isaac and Jack brushed aside

their competition in the final to

win 4-1, 4-0.

In the 11 and under boys

doubles, Sumner’s Archie Whithear

teamed up with Bishopdale’s

James Kirk to win the title.

They progressed to the final

comfortably before defeating

the Queenstown pairing of Dan

Milburn and Noa Milburn 1-4,

4-2, 12-10.

TEAM UP: Archie Whithear

teamed up with James Kirk

to win the 11 and under boys

doubles title.
