Online election voting trial closer

• By Emily O’Connell

AN ONLINE voting trial is still

being considered for next year’s

local body elections.

But Selwyn residents groups

are urging for a postal option to

be included so no one misses out.

The district council adopted a

recommendation to support in

principle conducting an online

voting trial, either alone or in

partnership with other councils,

subject to conditions.

These include the costs

being acceptable, appropriate

management of all risks,

the enabling legislation and

subsequent regulations being

passed in time to produce and

implement a solution and the

governing body giving final

approval for any trial to go head.

Rolleston Residents

Association Committee

chairwoman Leonie MacLachlan

said her personal view was “it

was a sign of the times.”

She said it’s good to try

things but it would need to

include a postal option. Tai

Tapu Community Association

Committee chairman Gerald

Carter said it’s a good idea but it

would need to be inclusive and

postal voting is one way of doing

that.

Darfield Community

Committee chairman Pat McKay

supports the trial as it “moves

with the times” but also says

there would need to be a postal

option.

District council chief executive

David Ward said Auckland

Council is taking the role in

“being the lead council” with

online voting. “Currently there

are 10 councils, including

Auckland and ourselves, who

are showing interest in pursuing

online voting,” he said.

However, the district

council can’t go ahead with an

online voting trial without a

commitment from Environment

Canterbury and Canterbury

District Health Board.

District councillors Pat

McEvedy and Grant Miller

voted against adopting the

recommendation.

think the district council

should adopt an online

voting trial for next year’s

local body elections?

SELWYN TIMES

ANOTHER BIG sports edition this week.

We have rugby, netball, touch and photos

from a schools’ quad tournament.

On pages 6-7 we look at the Selwyn

Sports Trust, run by Mike and Emma

Wilson.

Mike also coaches the Lincoln Combined side in the UC

Championship.

Sport is booming in Selwyn and the standards are improving

dramatically.

And it’s all about participation, no matter what level the

individual plays at.

Wilson sums it all up with this: “Sure, I’d like to have kids

make it to the top level of their chosen sport and come back

and say it all started here but it’s just as satisfying seeing people

fitting in a run or going for a bike ride into their lives.”

Speed sign to slow

down motorists on Springs Rd

• By Emily O’Connell

A RADAR speed sign has been

installed on Springs Rd in

Prebbleton to help with increased

traffic through the town.

Prebbleton community

association committee chairman

Peter Hunter said the sign was

installed at the entrance of the

town, near Prebbleton School, on

Thursday.

“We have a number of sites

where that speed sign can be

positioned and the reason that it

was the first one was because the

council already had a foundation

there,” he said.

The committee used its discretionary

funds to cover the $8000

cost of the sign and Mr Hunter

said the district council covered

the installation cost.

He said the committee knew

the signs were “quite effective”

and thought it may help with

community concerns over traffic

through the town.

“We are trying to be active and

proactive as well in trying to do

something about the increase

in traffic flows and speed,” Mr

Hunter said.

He said the sign will flash a

slow down, if needed.

In April, it was decided flashing

lights would not be installed

at the Springs Rd pedestrian

Comedy

Night

crossing to mitigate safety concerns

for children crossing the

busy road in peak traffic.

The district council said it

was an “outdated” method of

highlighting that children are

crossing the road.

Prebbleton School principal

Kim Alexander said while she

didn’t know anything about the

new sign, she was sure it would

be a positive for the township.

“Anything that helps keep

them safe is great with us,” she

said.

Mrs Alexander said if drivers

could keep to the speed limit,

it would help ensure its school

pupils’ safety in the area.

It is estimated about 16,000

vehicles travel on Springs Rd,

between Marshs and Hodgens

Rd daily.

Mr Hunter said he hopes the

sign raises awareness with motorists

about their speed.

Community centre finished . . .

• By Emily O’Connell

CONSTRUCTION HAS been

completed on the new $4.6

million Tai Tapu Community

Centre.

The facility in Rhodes Park

replaces the original community

hall and the sports pavilion at

the site. Both suffered damage in

the earthquakes.

District council major projects

property manager John Reid said

the new facility has changing

rooms, public toilets, three

community rooms and a large

roofed outdoor courtyard.

“A community survey

carried out by the community

committee in Tai Tapu prior to

work beginning on the potential

facility at Rhodes Park showed

93 per cent of respondents

supported the proposal,” he said

Rhodes Park reserve board

committee chairman Bob

Davidson said there was

“huge excitement” in the

community about the new

centre.

Although the centre’s official

opening won’t be until August,

Mr Davidson says the facility can

be used in the meantime.

He said the reason for the later

opening was so that key people

could make it and the landscaping

could be completed.

Mr Davidson had hoped more

landscaping would be done by

now, but said the wet weather

was making it difficult for the

volunteers doing the work.

“We’re pretty lucky. The council

has been very supportive too,”

he said.

Mr Reid said the centre’s projected

$4.6 million cost is being

paid for in a number of ways.

This included a district council

grant, reserve development

contributions, district council

loan, rugby contributions,

local community fundraising,

old community hall proceeds,

insurance proceeds and trust

grants.

St Patrick’s rebuild under way

REBUILD: Parish priest Job Thyikalamuriyil turning the sod

at St Patrick’s Catholic Church in Lincoln on Wednesday and

(right) what it will look like when finished.

LINCOLN’S St Patrick’s

Catholic Church marked

the start of its rebuild with a

turning of the sod ceremony on

Wednesday.

The previous church, which

opened in 1957, had to be demolished

following the severe

damage it sustained in the

earthquakes.

The rebuild is expected to cost

just under $3 million and will be

completed in the second quarter

of next year.

Parish priest Job Thyikalamuriyil

said it was “an absolute

joy” seeing members of the

construction team on-site.

“It is hard to believe the long

wait is finally over. I feel very

proud to be involved. I would

like to acknowledge and thank

our parish building planning

committee members and the

diocese for all their hard work,”

he said.

Father Job officiated the

ceremony and blessed the land

again, even though it was made

sacred when the former church

was blessed in 1957.

The new church, which

is being rebuilt in a slightly

different location, will connect

to the existing parish centre.

“The new church is being built

on the corner of West Belt and

Gerald St,” St Patrick’s parish

planning group chairman Tim

Hogan said.

It will seat 200 people and

feature an internal timber

structure and exterior cedar

timber cladding.

St Patrick’s parish council

chairwoman Patricia Smith

said the rebuild “is a wonderful

opportunity, not only to build a

church, but to connect with our

community.”

The parish is still raising

funds for this project, and

would like to hear from any

business or individual who is

able to support it.

The Selwyn Sports Trust

Jacob Page discovers

what motivates those

involved to keep the

people of Selwyn active

and involved in sport

THE SELWYN Sports Trust

was born out of a passion to

get people active and involved

in sport and

physical activity

for life.

It’s more

than just about

producing

All Blacks,

Black Caps or

Olympians – it’s

about giving

Mike Wilson people the opportunity

to

try a sport and

then make it a

part of their life

in the Selwyn

district.

Mike Wilson,

Emma noticed there wasn’t

much happening to get people

active in their area after the

earthquakes.

“In late 2011, my wife decided

as a young business owner in

Leeston there was a lack of activities

in the area so she started

a Wednesday night running

group, along with Michael Lay

and his family, called the Ellesmere

Roadrunners,” Mr Wilson

said.

“We had over 90 people one

night and that made us think

that we may have needed an

annual event and that’s when the

Selwyn Running Festival came

about.”

The festival is held in November

each year and continues to

grow in numbers.

By the end of 2012, the group –

which was a hobby at that point

– had started to eat into Mr and

Mrs Wilson’s professional lives.

“The trust was a logical

step by that point and we

decided there was clearly a

need for more events and

more to do in the Selwyn

area,” Mr Wilson said.

Mr and Mrs Wilson

and Mr Lay are all still on

the trust’s board, along

with former New Zealand

cricketer John Reid, who

has been instrumental in

several community projects

in the Selwyn area,

and rural bank manager

Cameron Blain.

“When we were formed,

we sat around and thought

why does this have to stop

at a running club and one

running event?”

Mr Wilson felt Selwyn

was easily ignored in

terms of sport at the time.

His role as chief executive

has increased from one

day a week to a full-time

way of life.

“One day became two

and then three and, all of

a sudden, I didn’t need the

casual teaching jobs.

“Each time I reached

capacity came with me

increasing my hours.”

As a charitable trust,

funding comes from a

wide range of sources,

including the Rata Foundation,

district council,

NZCT, Kiwisport Partnership

Fund through Sport

Canterbury, invested

schools in the activator

programme, event revenue

and other gaming trusts.

Funding ids used to build

up and restore equipment.

The trust runs activities

compete every year.

“Koru Games is great

for kids in year 7 and 8

because it limits the cost

of kids at that age going to

tournaments,” Mr Wilson

said.

“It’s about individual

skill development within a

team environment. We’re

also trying to encourage

that tournament sport

trips aren’t just about

the sport; they’re about

on this weekend

Food and drink tasting plus prizes

THE STAR Media Home

& Leisure Show promises

to be the best yet.

Celebrating its 20th year

of supporting local businesses,

the event has an

extra special flavour this

time around with a unique

tasting corner.

Event manager Vanessa

Fleming is super-enthused

about the new addition,

which reflects the importance

of leisure in people’s

lives these days.

“There will be a wide

range of food and drink

products to sample, which

people can then go home

and recreate in their own

kitchens,” she says.

And with the latest in

kitchen innovations and

products on display, it’s a

chance to get creative in

all aspects of life.

Said Star Media chief executive

Steve McCaughan:

“I am very excited about

the new elements we

have introduced with the

addition of our free taste

section, new glossy Home

and Leisure magazine, plus

fantastic prizes to be won.”

Seminars are held

throughout each of the

three days and feature

everything from starting

a renovation through to

the design and decoration

stage.

A hot topic this year is

water, with multiple water

filtration systems being

exhibited at the show,

along with spa pools

and the best in heating

technology.

“This show is designed

to inspire people with the

latest in home and lifestyle

technology,” says Ms

Fleming.

offender’s residence to help them meet the

requirements of their sentence and have the

support they need to do so. Probation Officers

also prepare reports and recommendations for

the courts and the New Zealand Parole Board.

Probation Officers motivate and encourage

offenders to make positive changes in their

lives, and this often means working closely with

friends, family/whanau, programme facilitators

and community work supervisors as well as

other agencies such as Work and Income,

the Salvation Army and Child, Youth and

Family. Probation Officers will make referrals to

programmes that may assist offenders with an

issue or problem specific to their offending type,

or that may have contributed to their offending.

Paul says that in his Corrections role he

likes the way he can help influence and instill

a positive change in offender’s behaviors,

helping them succeed, from completing their

Community Work hours to gaining employment.

“It’s taking the time to get to know each

person on a personal level, relate to them,

and understand the difficulties they may be

facing. Once you gain the rapport and respect,

it becomes easier to guide them through their

sentence and other issues that may be going on

in their life.”

“I talk to offenders about the importance

of integrity. This means we always strive for

doing the right thing – even when nobody is

Paul Miller, Probation Officer

It’s fair to say the day hard-running Southland

career beyond rugby were laid.

Miller got just two games in the black jersey

before being axed. But he believes the 2001

experience is one that helped prepare him for

the job he finds himself in today – a Probation

Officer with Corrections in Dunedin working to

rehabilitate young offenders.

“In rugby I had a lot of adversity,” he says.

In his role, Paul is part of the Youth Champions

team in Dunedin and says he would like to

see more of the young men he works with,

reconnect with sport.

“Many of these young people live quite

chaotic lives. They have the best intentions and

ambitions but unfortunately they struggle to

maintain their good intentions and reach their

goal. That’s where I found the fundamental

have completed prison sentences or who are

undertaking community work.

“Most have had trouble because of alcohol and

Selwyn School oF Dance

Disneyland Bound

Seventeen aspiring dancers are travelling to Los Angeles for two weeks in July

to participate in a dance tour and workshops. The majority of the girls are from

the Rolleston based Selwyn School of Dance, with a small number of the team

coming from other surrounding dance schools.

The trip of a lifetime will have a big dance focus – culminating in a 30 minute

performance on stage at Disneyland. Emma Body (Creative Director and Selwyn

School of Dance studio owner) has choreographed the performances and will

be travelling with the team to LA.

Much of the performance is based on the music from the movie “The Greatest

Showman” and the team gets the opportunity to perform in top hats and an

array of fabulous costumes. They recently had a trial run of the Disneyland

Show at a local fundraising concert which was supported by approximately 150

audience members who were treated to the only New Zealand performance of

the show.

The team will also have the opportunity to perform on Hollywood Boulevard and

to participate in workshops at some of LA’s top dance studios. These include

dance classes at Millennium, Edge and IDA. They will also have the opportunity

to attend dance seminars with professional dancers and agents.

The team has been training and rehearsing for between two and four hours a

week for over a year, which has been fitted in amongst their other dance, school

and work commitments.

Fundraising activities have been underway for approximately 18 months. Some

of the activities have included selling noodles at the Rolleston Fireworks night,

selling pies and pastries, delivering pamphlets and the team also ran a very

successful “grocery grab” supported by Rolleston New World.

The team would like to thank everyone who has supported them in their quest

to get to Disney, whether that be driving them to practices, or members of

the community supporting the various fundraising efforts. The team would

particularly like to thank their individual sponsors and encourage you to support

them too!

our Mission: To support a student’s passion and dedication for dance,

to foster the development of creative innovation and artistic expression.

The Selwyn School of Dance is committed to offering the highest calibre

of education to the dance experience.

History of ‘Weedens’

article about Malvern

ratepayers not profiting

from the sale of district

council-owned houses and

land in Darfield

Former mayor and

Springfield resident Bill

Woods – Before people

comment on the sale of the

Darfield houses by saying that

there have been houses sold

in the former council areas of

Ellesmere and Paparua and the

money has gone to

the consolidated

fund of the district

council, why should

Malvern expect to

retain the money

from the sale of

their houses? There

is no argument

with that except

that there has been at least eight

houses from the Malvern area

sold already with the money

going to the consolidated fund.

These particular houses were

built for a reason and the people

were rated specifically for that

reason to pay for the houses.

Under the Public Works Act, if a

property is acquired for a specific

reason and that reason is no

longer applicable, the property

has to be offered to the original

owners. In the case of the houses,

the Malvern council did not buy

the houses off the owners but

rated its community to pay for

them. Now that the houses are

no longer required, the money

taken from those ratepayers

should be returned to them at

today’s value. A precedent has

been set in legislation and should

apply to these houses. Finally, it

would be nice to have our three

elected members support those

who elected them.

Gary Knight – If the three

council- owned houses in Ritso

St are decontaminated from

methamphetamine then sold for

between $300,000

and $350,000, surely

the accrued revenue

from these sales

must filtrate back

into the Malvern

community. The

case raised by

former mayor Bill

Woods and past

district councillor Paul Stewart,

determining revenue from

the sale of these properties be

returned to the community, not

only echoes these sentiments

but also civic guidelines bound

by protocol that must surely be

appraised, respected and adhered

to. Within this context, it is

essential that an absolute public

consultation process is enacted

in addition to any submission on

the Long Term Plan 2018- 2028,

thereby enabling bureaucracy

to work in favour of entitled

monetary filtration into the

Malvern community.

Weedons

Residents’

Association

secretary

Gary Doyle

talks about

the history of

the township

THE WEEDONS area as it

is known was named after

William Weeden.

When a railway station was

built at the intersection of

Weedons Ross and Jones Rd, the

sign writer misspelt the name as

Weedons. This misspelling has

remained.

Mr Weeden took over a hotel

named Halfway House on the

Main South Rd from a Mr

Mains. The site of the hotel is

believed to have burnt down in

the 1880s.

This establishment was a

Cobb and Co stage coach

stop, being halfway between

Christchurch and the Selwyn

River. When the railway came

into being with a line going

south and another travelling to

the West Coast, a rail depot was

put in place and houses started

to be built.

As a result, the Halfway

House licence was transferred to

the current Rolleston Hotel.

Mr Weeden had actually

attempted to establish a township

on the site of the under

construction overbridge. However,

in spite of selling several

sections, the venture failed due

to the railway junction and associated

settlement being located a

short distance to the south.

Weedons was one of the very

few places to have two railway

stations with the same name,

one was situated as described

and the second was closer to

Christchurch and served the

Weedons Air Force Base.

OLD: A

painting of

the former

Halfway

House hotel

in Weedons.

The area is served with an

excellent school, the land for

which was donated by a local

landowner. The Weedons

Reserve contains not only a

golf club, but a very old cricket

ground, which is undergoing extensive

development, and three

tennis courts.

Weedons has never been

a centre of major industrial

growth. However, with the expanding

growth of IZone at one

end and the proposed Fulton

Hogan quarries at the other end,

it is being squeezed between the

two with all the resulting traffic

issues.

These, coupled with the major

works being done on the Main

South Rd, have and are bringing

major changes to what has been

a rather quiet and peaceful rural

area.

Twice a year we clear the Community Fund collection boxes at

Christchurch Airport and share the money across the community.

SELWYN TIMES

St John’s holds special place

YOU COULD be forgiven

for thinking you were in

rural England when you pass

Hororata’s St John’s Anglican

Church on Hororata Rd.

Surrounded by mature trees

and accompanied by a traditional

lychgate that leads you

into the adjacent graveyard, this

church setting is typical of many

country villages throughout

England.

The large stone-built Normanstyle

church with its tall crenellated

belfry tower now seems out

of place in rural Canterbury.

However, it is not when we

have an understanding of the

vision of those colonial pioneers

who built it 107 years ago.

Settlement in New Zealand

provided an opportunity for a

more prosperous lifestyle, based

on land ownership, than most

would have enjoyed back in

Great Britain, where the majority

of early settlers came from.

Migration to New Zealand

was sold as providing an opportunity

to build ‘a better Britain’

in the South Pacific, free from

the squalor and disease of the

over-crowded cities of the British

Isles, but where their values and

attitudes would still reflect the

influence of Victorian society.

The runholders who secured

large blocks of land on the

Canterbury Plains used their

new wealth to transform their

surroundings into idyllic rural

landscapes that reminded them

of ‘home.’

Deciduous trees were

planted around the many stately

English-style homesteads that

were built on farms within what

is now the Selwyn district, with

most communities also having

at least one church that reflected

the importance religion played

within colonial society.

St John’s Anglican Church in

Hororata is a prime example of

this.

Historian and district council staff member Wayne

Stack continues his monthly look at Selwyn’s past.

Anyone with suggestions for future features can

phone Wayne on 021 119 9107. This month’s feature

is on St John’s Anglican Church in Hororata.

ICONIC: The St John’s Church nearing completion in the snow 1911. ​

The first church in the parish

was built of wood in 1875 on the

site of the current stone church.

Prior to this Anglican services

had been held in Coton’s cob

cottage, where three prominent

runholders, John Hall (later Sir

John Hall) of Terrace Station,

John Cordy of Hororata Station

and Samuel Bealey of Haldon

Station worshipped.

John Hall was a layer reader

and conducted many of the

services.

Mr Hall was a man ahead of

his time and when the original

wooden church was being built

expressed his disappointment

in a letter to parishioners that it

would not be shared with other

denominations:

“I regret that the church is not

to be used by other denominations

to hold services when not

required by the Church of England.

The Church of England is

the only protestant body, which

is so exclusive. I expect the time

will soon arrive when men will

laugh at such notions having

ever been held. If the church is

to be exclusively for Church of

Our Great

history

WITH WAYNE STACK

England services, I will give 10

guineas (towards its construction),

but if it could be used by

other denominations, I will give

one hundred pounds.”

Mr Hall’s views were not

shared by other members of the

church and they accepted his 10

guineas.

He was prominent in provincial

and national politics, being

the first chairman of the city

council in 1863 and Premier of

New Zealand from 1879 to 1882,

for which he was knighted.

However, he is best remembered

for promoting the parliamentary

bill that led to women

receiving the right to vote in

1893.

Mr Hall’s greatest local legacy

was the construction of the majestic

stone church in 1911.

When Mr Hall died in

1907 he bequeathed money

to build a new vicarage, he

provided an endowment towards

the vicar’s stipend and gifted

money to build the new stone

church in memory of his late

wife, Rose.

It had been her wish, “that the

building set apart for worship

of God should have beauty and

dignity worthy of its sacred

purpose.”

To make way for the new stone

building the existing wooden

church was towed across the

road from its former site to

where it is now during the summer

of 1909-10.

This proved a difficult job

and it slipped of its runners on

a Saturday and had to stay in

the middle of Hororata Rd until

Monday.

The Sunday service was still

held though, in what could be

New Zealand’s first “middle of

the road church.”

The wooden church (which is

now 143 years old) then served

as the parish hall until the 2010

earthquake, after which it is

again being used for services.

The stone church was built using

local volcanic stone from the

Malvern Hills, with the inside

decorated in Oamaru stone.

The stained glass window was

gifted by Sir John Hall’s children

as a memorial to him.

in Hororata

It was made in England and installed

in 1914. The church is now a

listed heritage building.

Eight years on from the September

2010 earthquakes the stone

church remains closed and in a state

of disrepair and at risk, despite the

efforts of the local community.

The Hororata Community

Trust was established following

the earthquakes primarily to

raise funds for the repair and

strengthening of the church and

the hall, with the major fundraising

initiative being the Hororata

Highland Games.

Trust chairman Richard Lang,

acknowledges the complex issues

around the repair of the church.

“I think after the earthquakes we

all had big dreams of having these

important community facilities

repaired quickly but the reality is

that each project is complex and has

a number of stakeholders…we have

been working with the Anglican

Church since the earthquakes and

have been in direct discussions with

the Church Property Trustees since

late 2014.”

However, at this stage progress

has stalled.

The church is still a focal point

for the community, and though

its immediate future is yet to be

decided, the trust’s vision is that

once repaired it can be available for

church and community use.

District councillor Jeff Bland

is promoting strengthening arts,

culture and heritage within the

district and said heritage buildings

should be saved if possible.

“Like the cathedral in

Christchurch, St John’s Church is

one of the few remaining iconic

buildings within the district that

links us to our colonial past. We

owe it to our future generations

to be the custodians of our

heritage now so that they have an

understanding of how we have

grown as community. It would be a

great loss to the whole district if the

church can’t be saved.”

SADNESS: District councillor Jeff Bland beside the St John’s

Hororata Church, which was damaged in the September, 2010

Canterbury earthquake and is in need of repairs.

Funding for

cycleway from

Whitecliffs to

Glentunnel

may come early

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

FUNDING IS likely to be

brought forward to build a new

shared walkway and cycleway

between Whitecliffs and

Glentunnel.

The district council has decided

the cycleway will be reviewed

as part of its 2021-24 Long Term

Plan process.

The decision was made as part

of its recent LTP deliberations.

The project was proposed for

the 2032/2033 year with a forecasted

budget of $500,000.

The cycleway is one of 15

across the district that has been

prioritised in the newly approved

district council walking

and cycling strategy and action

plan. The cycleways will be built

over the next 20 years at an estimated

cost of $11.4 million.

It comes after the district

council received a number of

LTP submissions asking for

the Whitecliffs and Glentunnel

cycleway to be brought forward,

including one from the Whitecliffs

Township Committee.

It asked for the cycleway to be

brought forward into the district

council’s 2020/21 budget. Concerns

raised in the committee’s

submission included Whitecliffs

Rd being winding and narrow,

and having several blind corners

and being unsuitable for walkers

and cyclists.

The latest district council

figures show an average of about

440 vehicles use Whitecliffs Rd

each day.

In the submission, the committee’s

chairwoman Jodie

Thompson said the cycleway,

planned between Darfield and

Kirwee, was far less urgent than

the one in Whitecliffs.

She told Selwyn Times she

was nearly knocked off her bike

while taking her two children to

a playgroup in Glentunnel.

Mrs Thompson was towing

her two children in a trailer

several weeks ago when a fourwheel-drive

swerved around the

corner and forced her to cycle

into the grass verge.

About six months ago, she

was cycling on the road when

her neighbour in an oncoming

vehicle lifted her hand to wave at

Mrs Thompson. As a result, the

driver loss control and swerved,

causing Mrs Thompson to duck

behind the road markers.

She said it was great the

district council was bringing

the funding forward and the

footpath didn’t need to be extravagant,

just a gravel footpath

off the side of the road.

“It is already scenic around

here so the other people that

would benefit are the holidaymakers

and campers,” Mrs

Thompson said.

Landmark projects ahead

in next 10 years

The Council has adopted its Long-Term Plan 2018–2028, which signals a series of landmark projects for Selwyn over the next decade.

Mayor Sam Broughton says the plan is a response to the challenges and opportunities of Selwyn’s growth. “We’ve worked hard to ensure we provide the infrastructure

and services our growing community needs, while balancing the affordability of rates,” he says.

“There are some big projects ahead – and we’re committed to getting them under way as soon as possible because we know how important they are to the whole community.”

Average rate rises of 4% per year are forecast over the 10 years. In 2018/19, the average rise will be 6%, with a similar rise in 2019/20, reflecting expenditure on major

community facilities and roading.

Key projects and decisions from the Long-Term Plan

District-wide rating for halls and reserves

Proposal: A district-wide rating system to fund the

district’s community centres and halls, and reserves.

Your comments: A clear majority of respondents

supported this proposal, with many noting that it would

provide a fairer and more equitable funding system.

Council’s decision: The district-wide rates for community

centres and halls, and reserves will be introduced from

the 2018/19 year.

Selwyn Aquatic Centre extensions

Proposal: An extension to Selwyn Aquatic Centre

including a new 25 metre pool, café and fitness

wellbeing space.

Your comments: This proposal received very clear

support, based on the pressure on the existing facility.

Many submitters proposed a 50-metre pool, rather than

25 metres.

Council’s decision: The Council approved the extension

with a 25-metre pool. It noted advice from sports bodies,

that with a 50-metre pool already planned in Christchurch,

there would not be sufficient demand for a second pool in

the region. It also noted that a 50-metre facility would cost

more than double the budgeted construction cost, and

close to three times the annual operating cost.

Indoor courts facility at Foster Park

Proposal: A new multi-use indoor courts complex and

sports hub at Foster Park, Rolleston

Your comments: Most submissions and survey

responses were in favour of proceeding. The proposal

was also endorsed by local and regional sports bodies.

Council’s decision: The Council supported the project as

proposed, to be funded from the district-wide rate.

Water quality improvements and chlorination

Proposal: The Council asked for feedback on whether to

introduce chlorination to some water supplies, to provide

improved protection against contamination. The preferred

option was to introduce chlorination to specific supplies,

based on risk assessment.

Your comments: A majority of comments opposed any

additional chlorination although some supported the riskbased

approach. Comments addressed factors such as

smell and taste.

Council’s decision: Based on the need to ensure the

safety of water supplies, the Council will progress with

a risk-based approach with filtration, UV treatment and

chlorination as needed. Blanket chlorination was not

supported. Current projects to chlorinate supplies at

Malvern Hills and Sheffield-Waddington were endorsed.

Water race rating review

Proposal: The introduction of a new rating structure for

the water race network, based on a standard district rate.

The new rate includes a ‘public good’ element payable by

all ratepayers, to reflect the environmental and amenity

value of the network.

Your comments: More submitters and survey

respondents supported this proposal than opposed it,

although a significant proportion were undecided.

Council’s decision: The new water race rating structure

was adopted by the Council as proposed.

Changes to community grants

Proposal: Introduction of a new Community Grants

Scheme to bring together various existing funding

and grants programmes, including additional new

funding of $140,000.

Your comments: A significant majority of submitters

supported the proposal, with a number seeking a higher

level of funding along with support for activities such as

arts, heritage and biodiversity.

Council’s decision: The new scheme was approved. The

Council will review the level of funding for future years,

and plans to increase funding by $10,000 each year. A

separate environment and biodiversity fundwill be retained.

New community centres

Proposal: Replacement of three major community

centres, in Prebbleton (2020/21), Hororata (2023/24) and

Leeston (2025/26).

Your comments: The proposals for new community

centres received strong support. Some submissions

discussed the timing of the projects.

Council’s decision: The Council approved the proposals

for the new centres, to be funded from the district-wide

rate and other sources. Further work will be undertaken

to confirm the timing.

Rolleston council offices extension

Proposal: Construction of a 385 square metre extension to

the Selwyn District Council offices in Rolleston, to meet staff

accommodation requirements and provide public parking.

Your comments: Overall both online responses and

formal submissions on this proposal showed support

for the proposal.

Council’s decision: The Council resolved to proceed with

construction of the extension to the Rolleston offices and

car parking as proposed.

Walking and cycling strategy and action plan

Proposal: The Council proposed the adoption of

the Walking and Cycling Strategy and a programme

of projects and improvements, including seven

new cycleways.

Your comments: The proposed strategy and programme

was strongly supported. A number of comments also

suggested other potential locations for cycleways.

Council’s decision: The Walking and Cycling Strategy

will proceed as proposed for the first three years, with the

timing of future cycleways to be reviewed from 2022.

Other projects

St John Ambulance: The Council approved a

one-off grant of $60,000 in 2018/19 to support the

development of ambulance services in Selwyn.

Brookside Park lighting: An upgrade to sports field

lighting at Brookside Park, estimated at $300,000, will

be undertaken in 2018/19.

Liffey Domain fencing: Remediation work to a value

of approximately $32,000 will be funded, to provide

fencing at both Liffey Domain North and Liffey

Domain South.

Rolleston Town Centre retail space: An allocation

of $5.4 million has been provided in 2018/19 and

2019/20 for the development of retail/cinema space as

part of the Rolleston Town Centre development. There

is no impact on rates.

Lincoln Town Centre parking space: Funding of $2.5

million was approved for the acquisition of land, and

construction of carparks in Lincoln, to accelerate the

provision of car parking in the town centre.

Public transport: Funding of $60,000 in 2018/19 was

approved for a trial public transport service to service

the Darfield and Leeston areas.

Solid Waste: The targeted rate for recycling will

increase from $63 to $80 per household, because of

increased processing costs for recycled materials,

arising from significant changes in global markets.

Health Hub: Funding to construct a district hub for

health and social services was increased from $9

million to $15 million, in response to an increase in

the range of services that health service providers

are indicating they may provide. This project is an

investment by the Council, with no impact on rates.

touch referees

• By Jacob Page

TWO TOUCH rugby referees

from Selwyn will officiate at the

youth World Cup in Malaysia in

August.

Rolleston’s Cameron

Wootton will be

joined by Prebbleton’s

Will Hutchinson in

the nine-strong Kiwi

group of referees.

Wootton, 19,

started refereeing

five years ago and

has since earned his

level four badge, the

highest on offer for

an official.

The Lincoln High

student has controlled

games at the junior, secondary

school and open nationals level

and has also been part of the

Australian juniors compeititon.

Wootton said this would be a

major step up.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun to

be out there with a whole lot of

new countries, new styles and being

able to see where I stack up,”

he said.

Another positive of the appointment

is that some of his

mum’s family lives in Malaysia,

which means a family reunion is

in the works.

He said as he has risen through

the ranks, he has a new found

appreciation for how fast the

game is. “It makes you appreciate

the level of skill on display and

makes me work hard at my

fitness to keep up,” he

said.

Hutchinson, 18, started

refereeing as a 12-yearold

when a friend of his

mum’s asked if anyone

knew someone who

could referee social touch

rugby games.

The Christ’s College

student is now ranked No

13 in the country.

Cameron “I love the sport and

Wootton the friendship that comes

from it. This is a chance

to push myself to make the open

World Cup.

“The sport has allowed me to

travel internationally, largely for

free, and those opportunities are

one of the great things about the

sport,” he said.

Wootton said he would like to

gain an appointment in the open

World Cup next year and he saw

this trip as an opportunity to

prove he was up to that level.

Both referees agreed the sport

could do with more young officials.

Tight at the top of Selwyn netball table

• By Jacob Page

THERE IS a three-way tie at the

top the Selwyn premier netball

table after the latest round of

games at the Lincoln Event

Centre.

Greenpark A, Lincoln A and

Broadfield A are all tied on 10

points after three games of the

second round.

While it is the third round

which will determine the champion

this season, the three teams

have separated themselves from

the rest of the pack after trading

victories in the early part of the

season.

Greenpark A and Lincoln A

will do battle on Saturday.

Greenpark A will be looking to

bounce back after drawing 50-50

with their Greenpark B clubmates

in their previous game.

Greenpark A beat defending

champions Lincoln in round

one to add plenty of spice to the

season after Lincoln had won the

title unbeaten last year.

Broadfield A cruised past

Southbridge B 56-34 while Lincoln

A overpowered Southbridge

A 64-51.

Lincoln A coach Vanessa

Robinson said she felt her team

was much improved from the

team which played Greenpark A

in round one.

“We are slowly improving,” she

said. “Our attack end is going

really well, we just have to stop

putting them under pressure like

we have been.”

Robinson said she was looking

for a lift in intensity during the

match. “We do need to create

more turnovers in the defensive

third but we are certainly coming

back. The confidence is there and

a result this weekend could be

just what we need.”

Southbridge A will face

Southbridge B and Broadfield A

will battle with Greenpark B on

Saturday.

SELWYN TIMES

PETS & PAWS

Responsible dog

ownership

We are a nation of animal lovers and

over a third of New Zealand households

own a dog.

When it comes to these four-legged,

furry creatures, that lick and snuffle their

way into our hearts, we are a responsible

nation.

With ownership comes an obligation to

keep our dog and the public protected. It

also comes with yearly costs. In 2015, the

New Zealand Animal Companion Council

estimated that it cost around $1,686 a year

to care for just one dog, that’s $20,232.00

over a dog’s natural lifespan of 12 years.

The figure in 2018 may well be closer to

$24,000.

Registration is an important part of

that yearly cost. According to the NZ Dog

Control Act 1996, the law requires all dogs

to be registered and microchipped.

Registration

Once a puppy reaches three months

old, it must be registered with your local

council and then yearly by 1 July. Failure

to do so may result in a hefty fine.

Each council is required to keep a

register of dogs and sets its fees based on

the services it provides within the area

such as dog control, which may include

operating a pound.

The owner must supply details of the

dog including its age, breed, sex, colour,

microchip number, whether it is desexed,

and the address at where the dog is kept.

The owner must also provide his or her

own details – name, address and age.

The dog, once registered, will be issued

with a number and tag, which the owner

must attach to its collar for the year of

registration. Each year, a new coloured tag

is issued.

Microchipping

Along with being registered a dog must

also be microchipped. This involves a

small microchip, about the size of a grain

of rice, being inserted under the skin.

Each microchip has a number and is

recorded in the council’s database along

with the owner’s contact information. It

is a lifelong identification source, which

helps to reunite lost, stolen or injured dogs

with their owners quickly and effectively.

Dog control officers, vets and animal

rescue organisations such as SPCAs have

access to scanners and databases so they

can locate the microchip and promptly

contact the owners.

Remember to update your dog’s

registration details each year. Ask

yourself these questions...

• Have I got a new dog? Your new

dog or puppy will need to be registered

with your local council.

• Do I now have more than three

dogs? If you answer yes to this, then

you may need to apply for a multi-dog

license.

• Have I changed address? Keep

your current address up to date.

• Has my dog passed away? You

must let your council know if your dog

has died.

• Has my dog recently been

desexed or microchipped? Desexing

your dog, in some cases, may make

your registration fees cheaper. Check

with your local council.

responsibilities in the Selwyn district, visit

Lincoln Combined’s ‘complete performance’

SPORTS

• By Jacob Page

LINCOLN COMBINED will

return home to face St Andrew’s

on Saturday fresh off their most

important win of the season – a

23-10 win over Marlborough

Boys’ College in Blenheim

Coach Mike Wilson labelled

it as his team’s best UC

Championship performance.

They maintained third place on

the table by claiming their first

away win.

Lincoln Combined kept

Marlborough Boys College

scoreless in the second half in

muddy conditions.

“I was so proud of the team,

it was the most complete

performance we have put

together so far this season,”

Wilson said.

“You just never know how

the team is going to go after a

long bus trip up, but we were

switched on right from that

start.”

That alertness was on

display within the first 2min

when halfback Robert Sporke

made a try-saving tackle

which impressed many on the

sidelines. “It was a sure try

for all money,” Wilson said.

“Sporkey had no right to even

attempt to go into contact with

that, but I think him saving that

try gave the boys a lot of self

belief.

“It was one of those one per

cent plays that makes a big

difference when you look back at

the end of a game.”

Lincoln Combined trailed

10-5 at halftime but an intercept

try to captain Wil Gualter set

the tone for a dominant second

half. “I thought we controlled

the second half really well; the

field was getting very muddy but

we just got on with it.”

A further try and a couple of

conversions made the game safe

as Marlborough Boys College

could not breach the stern

Lincoln Combined defence.

Lincoln Combined will return

to Lincoln High on Saturday to

face St Andrew’s College, which

are currently fifth on the table.

“Beating a strong rugby school

like Marlborough shows that

this team is doing things right

and hopefully we can build on

that momentum for Saturday.

MOMENTUM: Lincoln Combined notched up their first away win of their UC Championship

campaign with a 23-10 victory over Marlborough Boys’ College in Blenheim on Saturday.

Trophy down and got back to

business with a comprehensive

43-5 win over Rolleston in

the Ellesmere senior rugby

competition on Saturday.

Points were carried over

from the combined country

competition from matches

played between Ellesmere teams.

Waihora, which lifted the

combined country trophy seven

days earlier, were in a rampant

mood.

A hat-trick of tries to winger

Tom Gordon helped seal the win

for Waihora.

Waihora’s win maintains their

unbeaten run in the competition

after five games.

Prebbleton suffered their first

loss after losing a 9-3 arm wrestle

to Southbridge.

Three Shannon Donald

Southbridge into the top four.

Lincoln Uni take down Sumner

• By Jim Doyle

A STRONG second half saw

Lincoln University down

Sumner 34-13 in the premier

metro rugby competition on

Saturday.

Sumner were surely sniffing

blood when they went to Lincoln

on Saturday. The Rams were

again depleted by Crusaders

commitments, although Jack

Stratton was welcomed back.

The Wave led at halftime,

with the formidable Dylan Nel

looking dangerous. But Lincoln

markedly lifted the intensity

after the break and came home

with a rush in the last quarter.

One Ram who didn’t need to

lift the intensity was Ben Morris,

because the captain played flat

out, especially from the 20min

mark. Morris was superb on

the carry, at the lineout and on

defence.

Jack Stratton also showed

his class. The halfback sparked

Lincoln’s first try when he darted

on the open side from the base of

a scrum and linked sweetly with

second-five Logan Bell.

With 15min to go, Stratton

was the wider player when John

Borland fed the ball from a

scrum.

Stratton was to the fore again

when Sumner lost the ball at

a lineout in Lincoln territory.

Stratton swooped, toed the ball

ahead twice and set the scene for

John McKeefry’s try with 10min

to go.

As Sumner sought a consolation

breakout at the end, Connor

Garden-Bachop was gifted an

intercept try. The right wing

knows how to beat a man oneon-one

and just needs to be put

in space so he can keep adding to

his try tally.

The hard-as-nails Borland was

like Morris in his commitment.

The No 8 was sin-binned in the

second half for a no-arms tackle

but even when playing to the letter

of the law, he caused Sumner

a deal of pain on the tackle and

the carry.

Cullen Grace had a strong

game in the No 6 jersey while

Nick Lake was always searching

for attacking chances.

The fullback was stricken with

cramp in the dying stages, with

a try beckoning. Sam Gilbert

missed only one kick at goal.

Sumner’s two tries were scored

by hooker Tom Crozier, within a

few minutes at the end of the first

half. The first was a result of sustained

forward effort, the second

coming through what appeared

to be an innocuous cross-kick.

Lincoln travel to Canterbury

University on Saturday.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

SELWYN TIMES

Protecting your pride & joy

There have been several high profile

burglaries recently, but these represent only

a small percentage of the number of actual

robberies. While most thefts go unreported,

the ones that are highlight the lengths some

will go to in order to steal others’ prized,

and often valuable possessions.

It is no real secret that stowed in garages,

stockpiled in barns, and deposited in attics

and basements all over the district are

any number of collectibles, memorabilia,

antiques, classic machinery – tractors,

trucks, motorcycles, caravans, boats - and,

of course, all manner of classic, vintage,

modified and standard cars. All of which

are targets for unscrupulous people. Many

of these prized collections are, for obvious

reasons, inconspicuous and, in most cases,

well guarded.

When it comes to keeping these prized

possessions safe and secure, it is worth

regularly assessing the security measures

you have in place. Sadly, thieves can be very

sophisticated. Therefore, security systems

need to not only keep up with, but stay

ahead of them.

Everyone’s personal situation is different,

and so needs vary. Most collectors likely

have in place the basics – robust locks,

limited access, sufficient insurance cover,

perhaps immobilisers for vehicles, steering

wheel locks, wheel clamps and more.

All these need regular assessment and

upgrading.

Whether you have one vintage

motorcycle or twenty classic cars,

protecting them can be a constant worry.

One collector, who asked not to be named,

says he is “very concerned”, both about

the increase in burglaries locally, and the

security of his collection of classic cars. He

“worries a lot.”

He has in place all of the things above,

plus a relatively sophisticated surveillance

system which sends alerts and live views to

smart devices. He also has an infra red “trip

wire” system, floodlights, and a large dog.

He feels well protected, but also constantly

looks for potential vulnerabilities.

Another collector admitted a slightly

more casual approach to the security of

his collection, while acknowledging he

“probably could, and should, do more.”

Chris O’Brien at Storage King (Link

Drive in Izone, www.storageking.co.nz/

rolleston) says inquiries about using

the storage facility to protect valuable

collectibles, including vehicles, are up.

They have a variety of dry, safe, and very

secure options available at very reasonable

prices. Perhaps storage off-site of your

pride and joy is something to consider.

Your pride and joy deserves to be well

protected. Whether classic vehicle, antique

furniture, war memorabilia, family

heirloom or vintage tractor, or anything

else you value, it pays to regularly assess

the systems with which you secure it.

Many of the measures required to take

care of prized possessions are the same as

those required to protect your everyday

belongings. Vigilance, strong locks, the

proper insurance cover, keeping the

most valuable things as inconspicuous

as possible. Often, extra measures are

required, and there is no time like the

present to consider if you’re doing enough,

or could do more, to protect your pride

and joy.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

State of the art

maintenance & repairs

It’s that time of year again. Wet, icy

roads, poor visibility, increased stopping

distances. All of which should be a reminder

of the importance of having brakes that are

working optimally.

At Jones Road Auto, they take these

things very seriously. Their Safe-T-Stop

brake testing machine is state of the art.

One of the first to be installed in New

Zealand, this plate brake tester accurately

measures your vehicle’s brake performance

and pinpoints possible problems. It also

tests wheel alignment and suspension,

which are also crucial to the safe running

of any vehicle.

It is always important to maintain your

car, but especially so heading into the

winter months. Regular servicing assures

peak performance, and even extends the

life of your car.

The team at Jones Road Auto are

qualified and experienced, able to carry out

all mechanical repairs and offer thorough

maintenance checks and servicing. Now is

the ideal time to check the things that it is

easy to take for granted, or simply ignore.

Wiper blades should clear the screen. If

they just smear dirt and water all over your

field of vision, it is time to change them.

It is also a good time to have your battery

checked. Murphy’s Law predicts that if

your battery is going to go flat, it will be

on the wettest, coldest night of the year. So

much easier to have it checked before that

happens.

Things such as light bulbs (headlights,

indicators, brake lights, and even interior

lights), anti-freeze and other fluids, and

even the car’s heater should be checked,

and fixed if necessary, at this time of year.

And, of course, good tyres are vital to

year-round motoring, but more so in

winter. It is important they have adequate

tread. With WOFs on many cars now only

required yearly, “it’s easy to wear a tyre out

between WOF checks,” says Lisa Fleck, Co-

Owner of Jones Road Auto. ‘We’ve seen a

huge increase in fails on tyres with the one

year WOFs.”

All these checks and repairs can be done

at Jones Road Auto. They use the latest

diagnostic equipment, provide courtesy

cars so the time your car is off the road is

not too inconvenient, do WOFs while you

wait, and even provide hot drinks in their

waiting area.

For those who live towards the southern

end of town, Selwyn Auto, in Springston,

is also owned and operated by Lisa and

husband Nigel, and offers the same range

of high quality services as the Rolleston

workshop. Manager Matt Taylor is also

a motorbike mechanic. WOFs at Selwyn

Auto need to be booked.

Jones Road Auto (www.jonesroadauto.

co.nz) has been a part of the Selwyn

landscape for many years, and is very proud

to be expanding their presence and services

even further. Exciting things are coming.

“Watch this space,” Lisa says.

A CON man who tells his

intended victims he will harm

their families if they don’t pay up

may face a bigger problem than

the law – gangs.

Police have received 19 complaints

from Christchurch people

targeted by the sinister scam. It

involves phone

calls and texts to

victims who are

told the caller is

from the Mongrel

Mob, Highway 61

or Black Power.

Pay up or your

family members, Greg

including elderly Newbold

parents, will be

attacked, the caller says.

But it appears the con man is

not connected to the gangs, just

using their names to put fear into

the intended victims.

Canterbury University criminologist

Greg Newbold said yesterday

the gangs would be “filthy”.

“All I can say is he’s got a death

wish,” he said.

“They will be absolutely p***ed

off. Anybody who impersonates

a gang member is committing a

serious crime against the gang.”

Prof Newbold said the perpetrator

could get a “hiding” for that

alone.

SELWYN TIMES

Thank you for

helping your

Fall Zones

community

To all of you who have had your

trees trimmed before they became

a problem, thank you for keeping all

the farms working and families in your

community warm, happy and healthy.

You can be proud of the fact that you kept the local cowsheds

milking, water pumps pumping and sheep shearers shearing.

You may not think that what you’ve done has had much impact

on your neighbours, but from all of us here at Orion, we just

want to say thank you.

Notice and Growth limit zones

B

A

Power line voltage A. Growth limit zone B. Notice zone

66,000 volts 4.0m 5.0m

33,000 volts 2.5m 3.5m

11,000 volts 1.6m 2.6m

400/230 volts 0.5m 1.5m

We’re not exaggerating.

On our network, 10-20% of all unplanned power outages are

caused by trees — including vegetation — coming into contact

with power lines. Other than this, fire damage to property from

branches sparking in dry conditions and serious injury from

electrocution from contact with trees touching power lines are

also possible consequences of not maintaining your trees.

How close is too close?

While most damage is caused by trees falling on power lines,

significant risk exists from trees merely touching them. This risk

increases the higher the voltage of the power line.

The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees

and power lines, as defined in the Electricity (Hazards from

Trees) Regulations 2003, are outlined in the diagrams above.

All vegetation should be kept out of the growth limit zone and

preferably the notice zone.

Sometimes it may not be practical to have a tree trimmed at the

rate at which it grows and unfortunately, this means it may need

to be removed. Other situations may require trees to be removed,

most commonly when they are at a high risk of falling due to

disease or adverse weather events.

Where do I start?

Before you begin, remember to keep yourself, and those around

you, safe. We recognise that not everyone is experienced in tree

trimming and are happy to advise you on what to do. We can arrange

for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your expense, however

we recommend you hire professionals to safely carry out the work.

If you or someone working for you intends to work within four

metres of power lines, a close approach consent is required from

Orion before you start. As a tree owner, you may be liable for any

damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.

Will I be fined if I don’t comply?

If a cut or trim notice is given to you and you fail to have the tree

trimmed and/or advise us of the time and location of the trim

without a reasonable excuse, this is an offence. This will make you

liable for a fine not exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues,

you will be liable for a further fine of not more than $500 for every

day or part day during which the offence continues.

More info can be found on our website and if

you have any questions or notice any trees

touching power lines in your area, please call

us on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

The firs time I woke up with a cold nose in my brand

new home, I wa shocked. How could this be? The

cool, calm, co lected one and I had planned for our

home to be we l insulated against Canterbury’s

cold winters. Turns out, not we l enough. We’d

even assured a we l-meaning friend we had ample

insulation (yes, Duncan, you were right). I’ve worked out where we

fe l short in hindsight. Our home was designed by highly respected

Christchurch architec the late Peter Beaven, for a magic little

Port Hi l site, where he planned to live in with his wife Lesley.

Sadly Peter died before realising his plans. We bough them and

employed Archology in Sydney, where we were living a the time, to

prepare the construction drawings and specifications. Compared to

Australia, the R values for insulation would have looked high. Our

talented young builder, Sam McCarthy, would never have queried

the levels because they were standard practice around town. So it

wasn’t until we were living in the house and I consulted Council’s

eco design advisor Julie Vi lard about how we could warm it up that

we discovered, while we unwittingly thought we had exceeded New

Zealand standard, we had merely met Code. And that ain’t going to

cut it in our climate.

Fortunately Julie had plenty of ideas on how we could improve

the situation and we have easy access to our underfloor to top-up

the insulation. Julie Vi lard, an architect from France, is on a mission

to transform building best practice here and you can read abou the

groundbreaking ideas she’s applied to her own brand new build on

page 20.

I’ve shared the highs and lows of building with the other home

builders and renovators I interviewed and, like Diane (page 36), would

relish doing it again. I was struck by how a l the home owner said

what they most valued was the ability of their designer or builder to

“rea ly listen” to their wants and needs. I was also impressed by how

much Christchurch people love a good garage! We’ve got some ideas

for some top of their class cars to complement yours on page 81 and

how to quickly establish a lawn on page 72.

We review a l the lates trends in everyone’s favourite room –

the kitchen (page 48), and share an easy yet impressive recipe for

entertaining friends in your fabulous new home on page 77.

I hope Peter Beaven would be pleased with how the cool, calm,

collected one and I realised his dream. Go chase yours people!

Gaynor

Speaking to the NZ Institute of Architects about ‘bespoke

architecture’ being a ‘minority pursuit’ not long before his death

Peter said “I am going to try to prove that it’s possible to build

modestly and cheaply with a little house for ourselves. It’s going to

be sustainable and it’s going to be beautiful and it’s going to be just

cheap – no more than an ordinary spec house. I’ l prove that it can

be done, and it might be the las thing I prove.”

Selling your property

when you’re splitting up

The end of a relationship is tough on

everyone involved. Some couples find it

hard enough to divide up their furniture,

let alone any joint property. If you find

yourself in this position and you own a

home together, it’s a good idea to get legal

advice on your rights and responsibilities.

If you’re not keen to engage a lawyer just

yet, your community law centre or Citizens

Advice Bureau can be a good place to start.

The Ministry of Justice and Community

Law also have some useful information

online.

While every situation is different, most

separating couples either jointly sell the

home or one of them decides to ‘buy

out’ the other. Sometimes they reach an

agreement where they continue to co-own

the property but just one of them will live

in it.

If you both decide to put the property up

for sale, any proceeds will be split. Ideally,

this will enable you both to clear your share

of the mortgage and help you start again.

If you decide selling is the best option,

it’s crucial that you find a real estate agent

that you are both comfortable with. Think

about this from the perspective of the

real estate agent for a minute – even the

happiest couples can disagree about how

to sell a property, so things can get very

tricky for the real estate agent when they

are dealing with a couple who don’t want

to be together. The real estate agent you

choose has to represent both of you fairly.

They must get agreement from both of you

(as joint owners) before taking any action.

If you can, meet several agents to find

one you can both work with. Ask them to

provide you both with a current market

appraisal, to give you an indication of the

estimated price range your property is in,

and present a marketing plan. Remember

too, that while you might want to make

life hard for your ex at times, it’s not very

smart to do anything that will jeopardise

a smooth and successful sale. The faster

you can sell your property, and the greater

the price you get for it, the sooner you can

move on.

If you decide that your partner is going

to stay in the house and he will buy you

out, it’s a good idea to get the property

valued. While you can get an idea from

online valuations that take into account

other sales in your area, a registered valuer

will provide you with a more detailed

appraisal. This will come at a cost, but you

may decide it is worth it for the peace of

mind. It may also be useful when you are

talking to a lender, as a registered valuation

can sometimes be required if you are

refinancing.

Whatever you agree to do with the

property, you independently both need

legal advice – and a written agreement

that sets out your separate rights and

responsibilities. This protects all parties

and stops one partner from lodging a

caveat or notice of claim that will prevent

the sale of a property. It may also be helpful

when it comes to applying for finance, as

some lenders may be wary of unresolved

relationship property issues.

Keep focused

on the end goal

and be kind.

It’s always difficult to set your emotions

to one side in a property transaction,

especially when it involves such high

stakes. Keep focused on the end goal and

be kind.

selling property, check out www.reaa.

Simple ways to keep the

winter power bills down

without compromising your homes comfort!

The cold snaps mean higher power bills

as we snuggle up in front of heating to

keep warm but there are easy ways to lower

your power bill without compromising on

comfort, according to EECA Energywise.

Technical expert Christian Hoerning

says recent research* indicates there are

still about 12 million incandescent light

bulbs in New Zealand homes – which, if

replaced with energy efficient bulbs would

reduce household energy bills.

“You can run an energy efficient

television for the same price as one

incandescent bulb – these bulbs are

outdated technology. LEDs use up to 85%

less energy than standard incandescent

light bulbs for the same light output and

each bulb you replace will cost you $20 a

year.”

Mr Hoerning says the price of LED bulbs

has dropped dramatically.

“Look out for specials as low as $4 a

bulb.”

Hot water is another area where people

can make serious savings, according to Mr

Hoerning. He says the research, carried

out by BRANZ, shows about 46% of houses

surveyed had showers with high flow rates.

“This isn’t about having a lousy shower.

You get a very comfortable shower with

a flow rate of 9 litres a minute. A family

of three with a 12 litre per minute shower

could save over $200 a year by reducing

that to 9 litres per minute.”

If your shower fills a 10 litre bucket in

less than a minute, it’s wasting water, Mr

Hoerning says. He advises inserting a lowcost

shower flower restrictor or getting a

new, efficient shower head.

Other top tips:

• Use cold washes - unless you

have an especially dirty load.

Modern washing machines

and detergents clean well

using cold water. A hot water

wash can use 10 times more

electricity than a cold wash.

11

• If you have a heated towel rail, only

use it when needed. A heated towel rail

left on 24/7 can cost you $170 per year to

run. You can buy timers for towel rails that

come on automatically at certain times of

the day.

• If you have a second fridge only to

chill a few drinks, it could cost you $200 a

year to run if it’s an old, inefficient model.

Consider turning it off or getting rid of it.

Property management in

a changing rental market

The great Kiwi dilemma – whether to

rent or buy – is unlikely to be resolved

any time soon. The issues are different for

everyone. There are plusses and minuses for

both renting and buying a house to live in.

The number one plus for buying a house,

for most people, is security, both in the long

and short term – you own the property and

can personalise it and (as long as you pay

the mortgage if there is one) you are not

going to be evicted.

Which is likely the number one minus

when renting. Nobody enjoys moving

house, especially when it is not by choice.

There are, however, benefits to renting. It

is more flexible. If circumstances change,

it is far easier to move if renting. If the

plumbing breaks down, it may be a little

inconvenient, but, in most cases, a phone

call to the landlord or property manager is

all it takes to get it fixed.

Thus, a minus for owning a house. If the

plumbing breaks down you have to pay to

get it fixed.

This formula can be applied across a

number of scenarios, all of which suggest

renting or buying depends very much on

your personal circumstances and desires.

If you want lots of pets and to live in a

house with orange walls, buying may be

the way to go. If, however, you prefer to

remain mobile, waiting for that next career

opportunity, renting might be best.

Whether buying a house to live in or

renting is better for long term financial

security remains a matter for debate. Rent

money may not be as “dead” as it appears

when you look at how much interest you

may pay out over 30 years.

The percentage of owner-occupier

households is slowly decreasing. More

people are renting now than 30 years ago.

Affordability issues are a factor, but not

solely. The market has changed due also to

cultural and lifestyle factors.

Rent prices have been dropping in

Canterbury over the last year or two. Postquake,

it was understandably a crazy

time in the rental market,

but with the

residential repair largely completed, the

rental market has settled back to something

that might loosely be called “normal.” But

that may change quickly.

Recent and continuing legislation

changes mean many investors are bowing

out, altering the supply and demand

equation, potentially seeing rents rise again,

and availability issues returning.

With a finger on these pulses, property

management companies are increasingly

important facilitators of the legislation

for, and mediators between, landlords and

tenants.

“We are the ambulance at the top of

the cliff,” says Steve Morgan, Co-owner

and Manager of Red Chilli Property

Management in Lincoln. “The legislation is

changing all the time and we have to keep

up. Our primary role is to manage tenant’s

rights and to look after owner’s properties.”

Tenants have responsibilities – take care

of the property, pay rent on time, notify of

any damage quickly – but landlords also

have a duty of care to the tenant, Steve

admits.

With the legislation

surrounding rental

properties becoming

more complicated – for

example regarding meth

contamination, asbestos,

or the current insulation

requirements, which are

set to change significantly

in July 2019 – whether you

are a landlord or a tenant,

engaging a property

management company

makes sense. Their

role is to be a liaison

between

landlord and

tenant,

and to protect the rights and property of

both, especially in the event of a dispute.

Having an ambulance at the top of the cliff,

as opposed to the bottom, might prove

invaluable.

Red Chilli has a team of experienced

managers specialising in the Selwyn

District. They have an online application

facility and an instant notification system

for when a new rental property comes onto

the market (www.rwlincoln.co.nz).

“We want to provide a better standard

of service,” Steve says, “respecting

both owner’s and tenant’s rights and

responsibilities.”

Renting or buying

depends very much

on your personal

circumstances and

desires.
