Skellerup site prompts investigation

• By Bridget Rutherford

CITY COUNCIL staff are

investigating whether changes

can be made to the District Plan

to increase a noise buffer between

residents and industrial activities.

The Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board requested

staff look into it after concerns

about a scrap metal company operating

from the former Skellerup

site in Woolston.

National Steel has occupied part

of the site since January and began

crushing vehicles in late February.

Between then and March 22 the

city council received eight complaints

about the noise.

An investigation found most

noise levels complied with the

District Plan. But city councillor

Yani Johanson said the District

Plan was too “submissive” and

meant the community had no say.

“I think personally there’s a real

need for an industrial buffer.”

The city council is unable to

change the District Plan until the

Government revokes the Canterbury

Earthquakes Order 2014,

which dictated what was in it.

Another

bid to

deal with

estuary’s

dying

trees

• By Georgia O’Connor-

Harding

THE Coastal-Burwood

Community Board has met with

an aborist to resolve the issue of

dying trees at the South Brighton

Domain estuary edge.

The board visited South New

Brighton and met with a city

council arborist on Friday in

a bid to fast forward a plan to

remove the risk they pose.

The board previously had

concerns the trees were at risk of

falling over.

The arborist said on Friday

about one or two trees pose that

risk and if they fall, they will fall

into the estuary.

It has asked for a report from

city council staff for a resolution

and to find out how many trees

will need to be removed, when

they need to be removed and the

cost.

The city council decided last

year to address the erosion issue

as part of the Southshore and

South New Brighton Regeneration

Strategy.

THE COASTAL-BURWOOD Community

Board is right to be getting rather irritated

about the lack of action on trees in the

South Brighton Domain estuary edge (see

They met with a city council arborist

dying trees along the edge.

The board was told it will now be March before a plan to manage

the situation is released, which is part of the Southshore and

Call to fix Northshore structures

PROBLEM-SOLVING: Northshore

Residents’ Association

chairwoman Jayne Mark in front

of a structure which needs

maintanance at the corner of

Aston Drive and Larnach St.

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THE NORTHSHORE Residents’

Association is trying solve the

mystery of who is responsible

for maintaining the run down

sculpture s and structures in its

area.

The residents’ association has

turned to the Coastal-Burwood

Community Board, which has

requested an

update from the

city council to

clarify who is

responsible for

the maintenance

work.

The structures

are located at the

corner of Aston

Drive and Larnach

St, opposite Aston Reserve, and

at Eastwood Reserve, Sandpiper

Pl and the north end of Eastwood

Rise.

They feature plants and

sculptures with the names

of different areas imprinted

on them. It is estimated the

structures are between 16 to

20-years-old.

The residents’ association

has been trying to get them

maintained for several years.

Its chairwoman Jayne Mark

said she understands the

maintenance work may not seem

like an urgent problem for the

city council, considering all the

other issues it has to deal with.

However, she said it does

affect the look of the suburb

and ensuring the structures

are maintained keeps the area

looking nice and tidy.

“Eventually, like anything,

they need

maintenance

and repair.

They need

a bit of replastering,

repainting

and

planting,” Mrs

Mark said.

The board’s

chairwoman

Kim Money said she did not

think the structures had been

maintained since they were built.

“First impressions are always

important. When you have got

lovely structures like that at the

entrance of our area, it is nice to

keep them spruced up,” she said.

FREEDOM CAMPING

The city council has responded

to 20 complaints about freedom

camping in Marine Pde opposite

Thomson Park, New Brighton,

between December and May. The

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board requested information on

the frequency of enforcement

visits to the site. The city council

also started a schedule of

monitoring the area for two days

a week in January. Community

board chairwoman Kim Money

said the board requested the

information because it wanted

to see if the area is being visited

often enough by enforcement

staff and if freedom campers are

abiding by the rules.

Pamela Ellen – Real shame,

Readers respond

to the city council

recommendation to remove

the pedestrian crossing

on Stanmore Rd after

more than 500 people

signed a petition for safety

improvements

Leeann Rodgers – I think

getting rid of the crossing and

putting lights at Stanmore Rd

and Avalon St is a mistake. The

lights and/or reducing speed will

impact on Stanmore Rd negatively.

It will block traffic in the small

streets, such as Forth St, and

traffic will come to a stand still.

My suggestion is cheap and easy

– repaint and/or put in a speed

bump with a crossing on it. That’s

all it needs. Not many people use

the crossing and Gillian Sheard

only got so many signatures by

thrusting her petition under people’s

noses and telling them it’s a

good cause so just sign it.

Disabled Persons

Assembly Christchurch and

Districts president Philip

Haythornthwaite – I have

been re-reading the Pegasus Post,

dated June 19, and it would be

very annoying and distressing

for the Stanmore Rd zebra

crossing at The Sideline Sports

Bar to be removed, especially

for the elderly and people with

disabilities who need to get across

Stanmore Rd.

The fact that city council staff

surveyed the zebra crossing in

“August” as stated in your article

meant that the survey referred to

must be from August 2017, which

is well out-of-date for a current

petition of any form. The major

problem is that both pedestrians

and motorists are not observant

enough of what is going on;

pedestrians do not honour the

‘green cross code’ which is very

simple: Look right, look left, look

right again. If all is clear, cross

the road.

Many pedestrians just step out

onto the road without looking,

presuming that a car that is only

a metre or two away can and will

slam their brakes on.

They cannot do this in time.

Motorists also think it is their

right to race across the crossing

in front of the pedestrian, or to

try to. Your picture shows the

north-bound car well forward

of the safety stopping line. What

is needed here is for everyone

to remember that zebra crossings

are controlled by people’s

behaviour and for all parties to

respect each other as they use

the crossing.

Darren Bakker – Obviously

pedestrians don’t matter. The

city council only cares about cyclists.

Fourteen people per hour,

that’s more usage than most of

those stupid cycle lanes.

Angela Toomey – Sad

response from the city council

if its only solution is to remove

the crossing. The city has a duty

of care to all users and this response

is reneging on that. Why

are the police not putting a

car there for a day to monitor

the traffic behaviour with this

crossing? Issue a few tickets to

careless drivers and watch the

attitude change. That in itself

is a deterrent for poor driving

issue if there are near misses

every day?

What communication had

been done with police on this issue?

Surely the city council and

the Ministry of Transport can

communicate and collaborate

on this, even put cameras up

like the red light cameras?

It is clear in all literature that

with this type of crossing drivers

must stop when someone is

waiting to cross. Are there large

signs leading up to both sides

of crossing warning of a major

pedestrian crossing ahead? Perhaps

that signage could be put

up just like they do to alert risk

areas on roads?

The rules must be enforceable

by police under dangerous

driving, surely, as you can fail a

driving test for not adhering to

those rules. Does Fair Go need

to do a show on driver education

of pedestrian crossings and adequacy

of councils and Ministry

of Transport implementation of

this?

Many of these deaths and

injuries could be prevented if

drivers took more care when

using our roads. Please look out

for pedestrians whenever you’re

behind the wheel.

Another bid to deal with estuary’s trees

•From page 1

But Ms Money said the strategy

will not be released until

March next year and it is too long

to wait.

City councillor David East said

there could be 80 trees that are

dead, dying or at risk of falling

over.

“Unfortunately if we had

repaired the estuary edge over

a year ago, a lot of these trees

wouldn’t have died,” he said.

Cr East said he is also concerned

a replanting/replacement

policy for the trees has not yet

been established and is hoping

a solution will come through as

Step closer to community centre

Dallington

Residents

Association

chairwoman

Bebe Frayle

writes

about the

city council

setting aside

$170,000 in the Long Term

Plan for its community

facilities network plan

A COUPLE of months back,

I stood before the city council

asking it to consider setting

aside funds in the Long Term

Plan for a community facility in

Dallington/Burwood/Avondale.

The Dallington Residents Association

didn’t make a submission

to the LTP expecting the

city council would give us money

for a community centre – what

we were aiming for was getting a

conversation started about community

facilities in the east.

I think the news that the city

council is committing $170,000

for a “community facilities network

plan” is great. This means

the city council will take a look

at all the facilities across the city,

their condition, if they are still

needed, and where the gaps are.

I am confident that this will be

good for Dallington, Burwood

part of the report requested from

the arborist.

In January Pegasus Post

reported a 30m tree with rotten

roots toppled into the Avon River

and sunk a Shirley Boys’ High

School rowing boat. No one was

injured.

After the earthquakes, the city

council developed the South

New Brighton Reserves Management

Plan and a development

plan which aims to protect and

enhance the cultural, ecological,

landscape and recreational values

of the reserves.

The board has requested another

meeting with city council

and Avondale – it’s obvious to us

that we’ve been missing out for

some time now.

So, while it’s not an announcement

for the new community

centre our neighbourhood desperately

needs, it’s a step in the

right direction.

What I have observed about

the allocation of resources generally,

and particularly in postquake

Christchurch, is that those

who squawk loudest seem to get

the most. We don’t have lawyers

and consultants that can argue

on our behalf for what we need,

staff over erosion at the estuary

and is hoping to meet again this

week, Ms Money said.

“We are losing land which is

just unacceptable,” she said.

Organisations in the area have

previously raised concerns over

the issue, with the South Brighton

Motor Camp funding its own

flood protection to protect the

future of the camp.

Godwit sculpture ready in spring

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

SOUTH NEW Brighton will get

a kuaka/godwit sculpture – but

where it will go in Bridge St is

still to be confirmed.

The project has been more

than two years in the making.

But the South Brighton

Residents’ Association, which is

backing the planned sculpture,

is confident it

will be installed

by spring.

The plan is

to have the

sculpture

finished by

September in

Hugo

time for the

return of the

godwits to New

Brighton.

City councillor David East

said there had been some delays

to the project due to the resource

consent process and getting

the funds raised, but he was

optimistic it would go ahead.

City council head of resource

consents John Higgins said no

application has been lodged for

the sculpture due to there being

discussions around its location.

“There are locations in the

general vicinity of the area

that may not require resource

consent,” he said.

The sculpture was originally

planned to go on a piece of land

near the Bridge St bridge.

Residents’ association

chairman Hugo Kristinsson

said the new location had been

“pretty much” decided. He

said it will now be sited about

10m east of its original planned

location.

He said $30,000 has been

secured for the project.

The funds have been raised

through the Rata Foundation,

Pub Charity Ltd and year 7

and 8 pupils at South Brighton

School selling wooden,

decorated godwit cut-outs.

The Coastal-Burwood

Community Board also granted

$8000 towards the project.

The board decided at a recent

meeting it would extend the

period of time in which the

$8000 needed to be spent after it

first granted the money in June

last year.

The sculpture is being built

by South Brighton artist Bon

Suter and is a celebration of the

godwits connection with the

Avon/Heathcote Estuary.

WITH MARY IN FAITH

TĀTOU KO MERE E WHAKAPONO ANA

FROM THE PRINCIPAL

A highlight this term has been the Academic Colours Assembly which

celebrate the success of our senior students in NCEA. Colours acknowledge

ability, hard work and an understanding of our school values – commitment,

perseverance and courage. One of my favourite sayings is ‘Excellence is

not a singular act, but a habit. You are what you repeatedly do’. All of us

are capable of making hard work a habit, in order to achieve to the best of

our ability.

On siting matters, the Catholic Diocese of Christchurch is investigating

sites which could be suitable for our new school and is actively considering

a number of options. We are excited about the future of Marian and are

hopeful for a decision soon.

With blessings

Mary-Lou Davidson

Marian College Principal

MERCY CUP SPIRIT

Teams of Marian College students

competed in the Mercy Cup

Tournament in Timaru recently. The

annual winter event is held between six

Catholic schools in the region and each

take turns hosting. The schools send

their best football, hockey and netball

teams to compete and enjoy the spirit

of competition, collegiality and shared

Catholic special character and values.

WELLBEING TEAM

As winter settles in, the Marian

College Student Wellbeing Team has

been bringing sunshine and light into

the school.

The team includes students across all

year levels and is headed by senior

leaders Megan White and Mia Blyth.

“Every week two girls pair up – a

senior and junior student who might

not know each other – and come up

with a project drawn from the Hauora

model of wellbeing,” Megan explains.

“The topics are physical wellbeing,

mental and emotional, as well as social

and spiritual wellbeing.”

Projects include signing a pledge

t-shirt against bullying, stress-relieving

colouring in activities, crafts a ‘shout

out board’ where compliments are

shared and a performance by the ‘I am

Unbreakable’ world hip hop champion

dance crew (pictured).

WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING

We wanted a college that could meet the spiritual and cultural needs of our

girls. We liked the sense of community, that expects and models caring for

each other.

Chris and Angela Rewha

Marian offers a supportive and nurturing environment where our daughters

are known and not lost in the crowd.

BIG SING

Marian College’s talented senior choir Messa Di Voce performed in the Big Sing

- the secondary schools choral festival - at The Piano recently. Messa Di Voce

received an award for outstanding performance of a Māori song – Tīhore Mai.

At Marian our daughters have not only thrived academically, they’ve

received a well-rounded education with a strong understanding of

community and service.

CLEVER: Haeata

Community

Campus student

Connor Smith

building his

board game

Brain Riddler

(inset).

SCHOOLS

St John spreads kindness

Connor invents brain game

LEARNING HOW the

brain works has led to the

development of a board game

allowing players to explore the

subject through illusions and

riddles.

Haeata Community Campus

year 10 student Connor Smith

has created a new board game

called Brain Riddler.

It has thrown him into a

whirlwind of new learning,

trialling and experiencing

technology that is new to

him.

He has designed a game board

and game pieces using digital

software, and is constructing

them using a 3D printer in the

MakerSpace at Haeata.

“I learnt to use new software

like Fusion 360, and the lasercutter,”

Connor said.

This involves key skills, such

as measurement, trial and error,

problem-solving, creativity,

persistence, patience and more.

He is designing game cards

with a range of factual questions

about the brain and the body,

optical illusions and riddles.

For this process, he needs to

research and gather all the facts

and create the design and layout

of the cards.

Connor had the opportunity

to test his game with a

group of people at the recent

Kōrepo Kaupapa Exhibition,

where all students showcased

their work.

There were plenty of people

willing to step up, roll the die

and give it a go.

“It was great seeing their

reaction when they realised what

the answers to the riddles were,”

Connor said.

RECOGNITION: St John intensive care paramedic Karen

Connolly, Linwood Avenue School year 2 teacher Fiona

Barnes, year 2 pupil Josh Schuker, 6, and teacher aide Michelle

values. The goods in the packs

have been donated by Canterbury

The visit was part of the St John

Day celebrations on June 24.As

part of the celebrations, the St

Young Coastal defender

makes NZ football squad

• By Jacob Page

COASTAL SPIRIT

defender Sam Richards

may be a boy playing men

but he is turning heads in

the process.

The 15-year-old Papanui

High student is the

youngest player in the

Coastal Spirit premier

men’s reserves team but

is more than holding his

own.

He has made the wider

training squad for the

New Zealand under-17

team which will attempt

to qualify for the under-17

World Cup in Peru in

October.

The news came as a

shock to the centre back

who had been left out of

the talent centre camp

where players are normally

spotted and then picked for

New Zealand.

“I’d attended a couple

(of camps) and then found

out I wasn’t named for

the previous one so to get

the call that I made the

squad was a little bit of a

surprise.”

Sam started playing as

a defensive midfielder but

moved into the centre back

position more than two

years ago.

After making the step up

from 15th grade football

to the reserves this season,

he said he believed playing

men had improved his

game.

“Initially I was quite

SPORTS

nervous about it, but after

my first game that feeling

settled down,” he said.

The speed is quicker and

obviously the games are

more physical which took

Sam some time to get used

to.

“Because everyone is

stronger than me, it’s really

taught me how to protect

the ball better and use my

body to keep the ball away

PEGASUS POST

from attackers,” he said.

“I pride myself on being

calm under pressure and I

think that’s a good quality

to have in the position that

I play.” Sam used to play

touch rugby but he gave it

away as his commitment to

football grew.

“I love the game and, for

me, I get as much joy out of

shutting down an attack or

stopping a goal as others do

scoring them.”

New Zealand under-17

training camps will be held

in Auckland throughout

the winter.

Maori under-18 call-up for Coulston

• By Jacob Page

NEW BRIGHTON lock

Elijah Coulston has

earned his first national

representative call-up,

making the under-18

Maori squad.

The former Shirley Boys’

High first XV player, has

made the 40-man squad

for a three-day training

camp in Rotorua on July

16.

“This is my first national

selection so it’s a big step

up from what I’m used to,

but it’s a big honour,” he

said.

“We had a South Island

trial earlier in the season

and there were a couple

in the North Island so

to make the cut is really

great.”

The squad will prepare

for a game against New

Zealand Barbarians teams

at the end of the season.

“It’s a great opportunity to

be seen by some top level

coaches and learn from

them.”

The 18-year-old travelled

from Oxford to attend

SBHS but now lives in New

Coulston (above) has

made North Canterbury

and Canterbury age-group

teams but believed playing

rugby in Christchurch had

improved his game.

Since joining New

Brighton’s premier colts

team this season, he

has noticed an increase

in physicality. “Playing

against guys who are

21 and more physically

developed has been eyeopening,”

he said.

“Speed-wise, I think it’s

the same as when I was at

Shirley but it’s a lot more

physical,” he said. Coulston

said he was working on

adding more bulk to his

185cm frame.

He hoped one day he

would be able to make it

as a professional player,

either in New Zealand or

overseas. “I think everyone

wants to believe they can

make it in rugby and that’s

certainly a goal of mine.”

The tree of LIFE

New research on Gingko

Biloba excites researchers!

For decades scientists believed brain

damage with age, after a stroke or injury

was irreversible and brain neurons could

not be repaired. In more recent times, new

research has shown that neurons can grow

back with the right conditions and that a

special extract of Gingko Biloba (EGb-761

or TEBONIN) has been clinically found to

assist in this. The implications for stroke

recovery are obvious, but researchers also

know many of us suffer from undetected

“micro-strokes” that over a period of time

slowly reduce

our cognitive

function.

TEBONIN

is prescribed

worldwide

as a natural

supportive agent

for a healthy brain

and cognitive

function.

It supports

healthy mental

performance,

concentration,

focus, alertness,

motor function

and to help with

many conditions

including tinnitus

(ringing and noise

in the ears), vertigo and normal balance.

TEBONIN improves micro-circulation

and helps the blood flow reach those

critical places it needs to get. It is a potent

anti-oxidant and makes the red blood

cells more pliable and capillary walls more

flexible.

TEBONIN is one of the most widely

studied and researched herbal products in

the world and is the only Ginkgo biloba

extract manufactured via a patented

multi-step extraction process. Each small

tablet contains a highly concentrated

50:1 extract to give you a therapeutic

clinical dose without having to take a large

amount of the herb. Of 25 Gingko biloba

products on the market, and tested by a

major medical journal, only TEBONIN

passed all five of the test requirements.

Ten brands didn’t meet any requirements

and the rest didn’t pass more than three

out of five requirements. TEBONIN is

the only Gingko biloba extract shown

considered the gold standard in Gingko.

TEBONIN has been trusted by millions

of consumers worldwide for over 30

years with more than 8,000,000 tablets

consumed each day.

The importance of

good blood pressure?

Blood Pressure is an

indicator of cardiovascular

as well as overall health.

Healthy blood flow is vital for

a healthy body as the blood

plasma transports nutrients,

hormones, metabolic waste,

oxygen and CO2 throughout

the body. An area in the brain

keeps check on blood flow

to ensure health of all cells

and the organs they make up.

If blood flow is reduced the

brain will try to normalise

blood flow by adjusting the

heart strength, frequency

(Pulse Rate) as well as the width of blood

vessels all via the central nervous system.

Over a period of time the blood pressure

may increase due to the deterioration of

blood flow and other factors. A higher B/P

is not ideal and is considered a major risk

factor for strokes, aneurysm, organ failure

and heart failure. Even moderate elevation

of B/P is considered a major reason for

shorter life expectancy. If we can maintain

our B/P in the normal range our overall

health will be improved. Systolic B/P (The

upper figure) is when the heart contracts

and pushes blood around the body. Ideally

at rest this should be between 100 to 120.

The diastolic B/P (The lower figure) is the

pressure in the arteries between beats and

ideally at rest this should be between 60

to 70.

how’s your blood pressure?

Keeping our blood pressure (B/P) in the normal range is a positive sign of good health. The higher the B/P above normal the more

likely we may suffer a stroke, aneurysm, organ failure or heart attack. Even moderate elevation of B/P can lead to shortened life

expectancy. Checking your B/P on a regular basis with our easy to use B/P monitors allows you to make changes to your lifestyle,

diet & nutrition when necessary.

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

especially vulnerable.

HOME & HEATING

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 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

PROMINENT Cantabrians

have given a mixed response to

the possible futuristic look of

Cathedral Square.

Plans for what the Square

could look like were released

by Regenerate Christchurch

yesterday after seven years of

debate and controversy over the

slow progress of the rebuild.

It includes three covered

pavilions, which would have

a “lattice-style” translucent

roof, which could host markets

and other events.

FUTURISTIC: Plans released yesterday show what Cathedral Square could look like.

The long-term vision, which is

estimated to cost between $60-

$80 million, aims to bring people

back into the area, through a

series of interconnected public

spaces.

The vision for the Square also

includes Cathedral Gardens

with trees and water features,

Post Office Place with events

and meeting spaces, and Library

Plaza with other people-friendly

areas.

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.

CELEBRATING

OUR SUCCESS

• By Bridget Rutherford

PROMINENT Cantabrians

have given a mixed response to

the possible futuristic look of

Cathedral Square.

Plans for what the Square

could look like were released

by Regenerate Christchurch

yesterday after seven years of

debate and controversy over the

slow progress of the rebuild.

It includes three covered

pavilions, which would have

a “lattice-style” translucent

roof, which could host markets

and other events.

The long-term vision, which is

estimated to cost between $60-

$80 million, aims to bring people

back into the area, through a

series of interconnected public

spaces.

The vision for the Square also

includes Cathedral Gardens

with trees and water features,

Post Office Place with events

and meeting spaces, and Library

Plaza with other people-friendly

areas.

Former mayor Garry Moore

said the plan was “brilliant”

while developer Ernest Duval

was not fussed by the pavilions.

The next step is for a delivery

strategy to be developed with the

FUTURISTIC: Plans released yesterday show what Cathedral Square could look like.

city council and stakeholders to

determine what could be done,

when, and what funding would

be needed.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel said

the vision would help people

think of the central city as a

destination and residential

neighbourhood.

• By Barry Clarke and Emily

O’Connell

A CONVICTED killer is back

behind bars after a spectacular

crash while allegedly fleeing

police.

John Oliver Jamieson’s Subaru

Forester crashed through the

Rolleston dog park fence on

Saturday.

A spear-like fence post

smashed through the window

screen narrowly missing a

woman in the passenger seat.

Miraculously Jamieson and the

woman were unhurt.

He had earlier been recorded

driving at 180km/h on State

Highway 1.

A cut-down rifle was later

found by police in the vehicle.

Startled dog walkers said

Jamieson ran a short distance

from the vehicle before stopping

to see if the woman in the vehicle

was okay.

Police arrived soon after and

he was apprehended.

Jamieson was one of six men

“I’m confident Regenerate

Christchurch’s vision will allow

this to happen.”

City councillor Deon Swiggs

said it would need to work

around other developments

such as Turanga, the Spark

building, Aotea Gifts and the

restoration of Christ Church

Cathedral.

“We’ve got to look at what is

happening, what’s in the vision

and what can we deliver.”

City councillor Jamie Gough

said it was a good starting

point.
