Northcote

• By Sophie Cornish

PLANS TO develop an allweather

sporting facility in

Northcote would see six sporting

codes provided with up to 21

indoor courts.

A warehouse near the corner

of Main North and Northcote Rds,

currently tenanted by Toll Group,

could be reconfigured and ready

for use in two to three years.

Developers Kris Inglis and

Mike, Max and Glenn Percasky

outlined their plans to the

Papanui-Innes Community Board

recently.

Known as the Northcote Sports

and Entertainment Terminus,

it was granted resource consent

in August 2015 and will have 12

indoor courts for netball, futsal,

basketball, tennis, badminton and

volleyball.

A gymnasium, cafe, child care

centre, 450 car parks and other

sports entertainment options such

as 10-pin bowling, Laser Strike

and Clip ’n Climb will also be

included.

The other sports entertainment

options could be removed to

expand the facility to 21 indoor

courts.

The large quantity of weed

This has been a happy family home for many years, but a change in circumstances creates an

opportunity for another family to move in and enjoy this lovely property. The views are hard

to beat, across the city to the mountains and sea beyond. The substantial home is configured

to offer great flexibility for all sorts of households, with a semi self-contained area that could

be fantastic for extended family.

The main areas of the home are upstairs where living, dining and kitchen are open plan, all

with aspects of the view. The living room opens through ranch sliders to a wooden deck that

wraps around the house and also connects to the master bedroom. A large kitchen area with

room for casual dining is a few steps up from the living spaces and connects to a private and

sheltered outdoor area at the rear of the property.

The master bedroom has an ensuite, and there are two other bedrooms upstairs along with

the main bathroom facilities, which are separated into 3 rooms, making it a practical and

convenient home for busy households. Downstairs a spacious entrance and stairway area

opens into a double bedroom with adjoining living and kitchen area, which in turn connects

to a large games room. These are all generous spaces with myriad uses. The whole downstairs

area has it’s own large outdoor area where of course the views take centre stage.

There is a double garage with easy drive on access and off street parking. The timeless design

of the house offers the next owners potential to update without breaking the bank. Whatever

the next owner plans it will be the views that capture the heart and spark the imagination.

•From page 1

Mr Inglis said the group started

a conversation three years ago

with local sporting and community

groups.

“There’s been a really positive

response to it. A lot of sports are

competing for court space at the

moment.”

Mr Inglis said the facility would

be similar to the Edgar Centre in

Dunedin.

“You will find around the country,

particularly in Wellington,

Auckland and in Dunedin with

the Edgar Centre, the participation

and growth rates in the sport

are far higher . . . in sports such

as netball, futsal and basketball

when you have indoor facilities.”

Mr Inglis said the facility would

“complement” the proposed

Metro Sports Facility planned for

the central city.

“We see this as complementary

to MSF, as a community-based

sports centre. It’s also decentralised.

We will have 450 car parks in

the Papanui area, which I think it

is a lot easier to manage than 400

car parks in the centre of the city.”

He believes even with the development

nine indoor courts for

MSF, there will still be “a shortfall

in the capacity for indoor courts.”

“Our understanding is that

from netball alone, there is a need

for 18-20 indoor courts.”

AT 10-YEARS-OLD Finnian

Chan-Allan ran 6km in the Star

Media City2Surf.

The Merivale resident started

with a goal of raising $300 for

the Canterbury Bowel and Liver

Trust.

Finnian said: “I thought it was

a lot. I achieved this in a couple

of days, so Mum suggested I try

for $1000, 100 times my age – I

was like, what?”

But when he crossed the line,

Finnian had raised $1568 for

the trust. He said he was “really

happy” with the total.

“By doing this I have learnt

that you can do things for charity,

I feel proud that I raised all

that money and I learnt that people

were happy to help me raise

money for charity. I am confident

now in running 6km and I

am more confident in speaking

to people,” he said.

Finnian has already decided

next year he will do the 14km

run and is hoping to inspire his

whole classroom to join him.

WATER PUMP: An artist’s impression of the city council’s

preferred design and location for the Jeffreys pump station.

More feedback sought

on Jeffreys pump station

THE SECOND round of

consultation has opened for the

pump station suction tank in

Jeffreys Reserve after residents

were unhappy with previous

designs.

Feedback from the October

2017 consultation resulted in

a further investigation of eight

potential location options,

which were then independently

peer reviewed.

The $2.5 million project

is required to replace the

earthquake-damaged tank

which supplies water to the

north-west of Christchurch.

City council has revealed

it prefers option two, which

includes the new tank next

to the existing re-clad pump

station.

This may result in savings in

energy use and pump upgrades

because the pump station and

suction tank would be in close

proximity. Its visual effects

may also be reduced as the

height of the tank will be 4m

above ground and 50cm below

ground.

The project is now expected to

be completed in December next

year instead of June, city council

manager land drainage Keith

Davison said.

The plans were changed by

the city council after neighbours

of the reserve expressed concern

with the concept designs.

“Key concerns and

suggestions from the have your

say engagement carried out in

September and October were

the height of the tank and the

affect on neighbours, security

issues, visual impacts, use of

other locations and lowering of

THE BRYNDWR Community

Garden is based at Morley St Park

and is run by a team of volunteers

from the local community.

Now in its sixth year, the

garden is a great place to learn

about gardening, get fresh

vegetables and herbs, and meet

up with friends and neighbours.

Everyone is welcome to participate

from the novice to the

experienced gardener, from those

who can ‘supervise’ to those who

can dig, weed and water.

Our working bees, held on

Saturday mornings, provide a

time to get your hands dirty as

well as an opportunity to mingle,

chat, share food, and build connections

together to learn and be

part of a community.

Our raised beds near the

playground contain a range of

seasonal vegetables that are available

for anyone to harvest. This

year our tomatoes, bok choy and

pak choi grew especially well.

The community garden provides

an opportunity for children

and families to learn how to grow

vegetables under the watchful eye

of experienced gardeners. This

can lead you to be bitten by the

“gardening bug” and start your

own garden.

We want the Bryndwr Community

Garden to continue to

be a place which enhances community

well-being and brings

people together, as well as being a

community focal point for events

and activities, a place of learning

and sharing skills and a garden

that reflects sustainable and environmental

values.

While this sounds like a tall

order, with our team of dedicated

volunteers and links with the

wider community, we do our

best to achieve this – but we need

your help. We are always looking

for more people to be involved

either through participating at

the working bees, being on the

watering roster, building raised

beds, or being on our committee

to guide and enable the running

of the garden.

•If you, your family or

your friends are interested

in being involved with the

garden, come along on

Saturday morning, 10amnoon,

roads could have additional

lanes added in a bid to manage

increased traffic from the

Northern Corridor.

The city council has

proposed an upgrade plan for

Cranford St and the surrounding

area to reduce traffic on

smaller side streets coming off

the motorway.

Plans include adding third

lanes on Forfar, Madras and

Barbadoes Sts between Warrington

St and Bealey Ave and a

clearway on part of Cranford St

from Innes Rd to Berwick St.

“A clearway on part of Cranford

St and three-laning sections

of Madras/Forfar St and Barbadoes

St would help to improve

the traffic flow in the area and

minimise short cuts through local

streets,” a city council report

said.

The additional lanes and clearway

would involve taking away

on-street parking.

“Investigations we have done

show that local streets will be

affected in the morning and

evening peak periods if no road

improvements are made. The

impact will vary street by street

but a number of streets will have

a traffic increase of over 30 per

cent,” the report said.

The plan also includes upgrading

the intersections at Cranford

and Westminster Sts, Cranford

and Berwick Sts, Forfar and

Warrington Sts, Warrington and

Barbadoes Sts, Madras St and

Edgeware Rd, and Barbadoes St

and Edgeware Rd.

As well as upgrades to side

streets, including improving

safety by raising intersections,

narrowing sections of the road,

bends and landscaping, as well

as installing mid-block raised

platforms and turning restrictions.

The city council is hosting

drop-in sessions on May 7 at St

Nearly 800

trees planted

by community

THE FIRST native-tree

planting in Papanui Bush began

on Friday in what Papanui-

Innes Commuity Board

member John Stringer called “a

really historical moment.”

The bush once took up 36-ha

of land that is now Papanui

High School and Vagues Rd in

1850.

During this time, most trees

were felled over a period of five

to six years.

On Friday, about 100 people

planted almost 800 trees,

including totara, in the north

and south end of Bridgestone

Reserve on Langdons Rd.

Mr Stringer said the day was

“really successful.”

Groups involved in the

planting included Papanui

High School, the Rotary Club

of Papanui and members from

the Northcity Church and the

Papanui Baptist Church.

The Papanui-Innes

Community Board was also

involved, including city

councillors Pauline Cotter and

Mike Davidson.

Mr Stringer said there

has been even more interest

from local businesses and

community groups for the next

planting, which will take place

in June.

Petition to change schools’ zones

• By Sophie Cornish

“HAVEN’T OUR kids lost

enough to the quake already?”

That’s the message on signs

displayed in Richmond and

Shirley, calling for Avonside

Girls’ and Shirley Boys’ High

School to include the suburbs in

its new home enrolment zone.

Residents of the suburbs

have delivered 3000 leaflets to

surrounding areas and gathered

more than 1300 signatures on

a petition, calling for people to

submit feedback to the schools

and the Ministry of Education.

The two schools will relocate

to the new shared campus at QE

II Park next year and have been

required to develop a new zone

by the secretary of education.

The board of trustees from

both schools opened a consultation

document online at the

end of March, which closed on

Thursday.

The document included a ‘draft

zone’ which featured suburbs

Burwood, Parklands, New

Brighton, South Brighton and

Southshore, which is supported

by the MoE.

The Marshland area was featured

on the document as a ‘grey

zone’, meaning it was an area the

schools wish to have included in

the zone.

The suburbs of Richmond,

Shirley, Dallington, Avonside and

Edgeware were not included at all.

Richmond resident

Laura McIntosh said she is

disappointed.

“Everyone is feeling pretty sad

about it. We had no idea this was

going to happen. The first we

heard that we weren’t going to be

included was when the two schools

posted on their Facebook page.

She said there is “a general feeling

of abandonment.”

“We have kids from broken

primary schools, broken areas,

and terrible streets, so much unknown

. . . it’s really upsetting.”

Other signs put up also read

“how come areas with no historical

connections to our school are

in, but we are left out in the cold?”

and “don’t abandon our kids.”

Four public meetings were

held with both schools’ board of

trustees and principals.

“There were no MoE representatives

at the meetings at all,

it was really disappointing. They

didn’t get to gauge the feeling of

the room, how upset we were,”

said Mrs McIntosh.

Ministry of Education deputy

secretary sector enablement and

support Katrina Casey said it was

“not appropriate” to have a representative

at the meetings.

“Because school boards lead

the consultation process with

their communities.”

Herbs & natural ingredients

give powerful support

for your immune system

Researchers have shown that certain herbs

& natural ingredients can dramatically

reduce your chances of succumbing to colds

& flu.

Formulas like GO VIR-DEFENCE has

been based on the latest research and has

proved itself to many.

Because of the high potency extracts

used in this formula most will find only

one or two capsule daily sufficient to keep

the immune system at optimum, however

at the first sign of any immune attack, e.g.

headaches, sore throat, aches etc. the dose

can be increased. Most will then find the

symptoms will disappear quickly without

getting worse.

GO VIR-DEFENCE contains the

following powerful ingredients:

NOR’WEST NEWS

Olive Leaf Extract has become one of

the most popular ingredients used in the

treatment of immune attacks as it has strong

anti-microbial properties that help slow the

growth of bacteria & prevent the replication

of viruses.

The formula also contains garlic,

andrographis, Echinacea, pau d’arco,

elderberry as well as zinc, vitamin C &

citrus bioflavonoids all to provide effective

immune support.

NOR’WEST NEWS

Get rid of

dampness

in your house

Now with the colder and wetter weather on

its way, home owners are focusing on ways

to make their homes comfortable, warm and

healthy for their families throughout winter.

Rising damp is an issue that affects many of

our older properties which suffer from poor, or

no, insulation. In Canterbury especially, postquake,

many people have relocated to homes

that suffer from rising damp which can be

associated with health problems. Independent

tests have shown that up to 40 litres of water can

rise from the ground and enter a house every

day, leading to mildew, mould, condensation

and musty smells. Moulds can produce various

allergic reactions and the frail, elderly and very

young are especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd is a

locally owned and operated firm. The team

understands the problems caused by rising

damp and are there to help. They will come

to your damp home and pump a lightweight,

flowable foam concrete under your timber

floored home. Specially adapted for our

New Zealand conditions and applications

it provides a layer of protection against

rising moisture. An unexpected benefit that

the team at Canterbury Foam Concrete

have noticed recently, is that many owners

of properties which had underfloor foam

concrete installed, reported that it also

provided protection against liquefaction after

the earthquakes.

Contact Canterbury Foam Concrete Ltd

now for your free, no obligation quote and

complimentary appraisal of your underfloor

ventilation needs. Phone 03 376 4608 or

0508 362626 for more information.

Choosing the

right heat pump

for your home

Whether it be a new build, or

a retrofit, most homes include

at least one heat pump, if not a

whole heating solution. They can

provide cheap, clean heat and are

much more convenient than a log

burner as you just need to press

a button. But how do you decide

what is best? Choosing the right

sized heat pump is key to ensuring

optimum comfort levels. Every

situation varies and it is therefore

important to get professional

advice from heat pump experts.

The range varies from wall mounted high

walls, floor mounted systems, multi systems,

ceiling cassettes, right through to ducted

central heating systems allowing you to have a

very discreet way of heating your whole home

to a constant temperature throughout.

Firstly, you must select a heat pump that

is suitable for the size of the space you wish

to heat. Usually a site visit is the best way to

ascertain this. Not only is the size of the area

taken into consideration but also, insulation,

building orientation, windows and ceiling

space. There are a wide range of heat pumps

available with different heating outputs so it is

important to select

the correct size for

Heating is a major

investment in your home

and it is vital to get the

right advice.

your requirements

that will handle

the job but not

be unnecessarily

overpowered.

Secondly, the

location of your

heat pump is also extremely important. The

cheapest installation is a back to back where

the outdoor unit is positioned directly behind

the indoor unit however this is not necessarily

always the best option. It is vital that the indoor

unit is positioned in a place that will not be

constantly blowing on you. Also important, is

the location of the outdoor unit. Most people

do not want their outdoor unit sitting directly

in their outdoor entertaining area or right

outside their bedroom window.

Choose a brand you can trust. Many brands

have come and gone over the years but there

are a number of manufacturers who provide

reputable and reliable products. All brands vary

in their energy efficiency, quietness of systems

and price, so it depends on your application as

to which will be most suitable. Major brands

such as Panasonic, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, Daikin,

Toshiba and Hitachi are all reliable brands

backed up by good technical after sales service.

Ensure your heat pump is installed by an

accredited installer. This will not only ensure

correct installation of your heat pump, but also

validate the manufacturers warranty.

Other things to consider when choosing a

heat pump are time

clocks, ease of use of

the remote controllers,

air filtration and also

wifi capabilities.

Heating is a major

investment in your

home and it is vital to

get the right advice.

Enviro Master Ltd specialise in the supply,

installation and servicing of all major brands

of heat pumps. Our salesmen are engineers

ensuring you get quality, unbiased advice as

to which system will suit your application

the best. Enviro Master Ltd offer a free, no

HOME & HEATING

Fresh air

in your home

All houses require air exchange in order

to stay fresh and dry. No one likes to live

in a stuffy, smelly, damp home. Indoor air

quality is important for the health of the

occupants. Houses can have many sources of

contaminants, such as bathrooms, kitchens,

pets, smokers, and even furnishings. Opening

the windows can refresh the air, but is not

always an option for security reasons and can

also lead to heat energy being lost to outside.

Although older houses have small gaps

around windows and doors, you want to be

able to control the flow of air. You don’t want

air coming in to the bathroom or kitchen and

pushing the soiled air around the house. It

is better to expel the air out of kitchens and

bathrooms to outside. This will draw air in

from the rest of the house to replace the air that

has been removed.

Modern houses are very airtight and

theoretically require a source of incoming air

to allow kitchen and bathroom extraction to

work optimally. Ventilation systems should be

low air velocity and low air pressure so as not

to cause draughts.

There are two main types of ventilation

system: Positive pressure and Balanced

pressure. Positive pressure systems, such as the

Dry-Matic, bring filtered, warmed attic air into

the house, which then percolates through the

rooms, pushing the damper stale air out.

Balanced pressure systems bring in a

similar amount of air to the amount they

exhaust. Balanced pressure systems with Heat

Exchange, such as the HEX390, use the heat

of the outgoing air to warm the incoming

air from outside. These are the most energy

efficient systems available, as they recover up

to 80% of the energy in the air, rather than

losing it to outside. Heat exchangers work just

as well cooling incoming air when the house is

cooled in summer.

The NZ building code has recommended

air exchange rates for houses. To ascertain

the required airflow for your home, please

contact Smooth-Air on 0800 SMOOTH

(0800 766 684), who will also be able to

recommend a solution if your ventilation

doesn’t yet meet the New Zealand standard.
