More

than 100

estuary

trees to

face axe

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

DEAD AND decaying pine trees

along the edges of the South

Brighton Domain estuary edge

will be cut down.

More than 100 trees will face

the axe over the next fortnight.

Erosion caused by the February

22, 2011, earthquake led to

the seawater damaging the trees.

The removal of the trees has

been debated since last year.

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board deputy chairman Tim

Sintes said if the estuary edge

had been protected, a lot of the

trees would have been saved.

He said the board has been

pushing for the estuary edge to

be restored after the earthquake

to prevent losing the trees.

It comes after an urgent

meeting was held with the

community board and a city

council arborist recently in a

bid to resolve the issue of dying

trees.

Forty-eight small-to-medium

trees and 56 large trees were

identified by the arborist as

needing to be removed because

they were in poor condition.

GOOD NEWS for Charlotte Donne and

Dylan Wood (pages 4-5) over their battle

to get a resource consent to add to their

Southshore home.

But the warning bells for others should

be ringing.

Southshore, Redcliffs across the estuary, and South New

Brighton are areas with big question marks hanging over them.

It’s all about rising sea levels and the monster lurking in the

background – insurance cover.

People living in the High Flood Management Plan area are

facing difficulties in obtaining resource consents to extend their

homes or to build on empty sections.

Trying to build on an empty section is the real issue at the

moment.

Local community board deputy chairman Tim Sintes is

working with others to try and sort the problem.

Road marking fails to curb speeding

Motorist reaches

136km/h on

Rothesay Rd

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

PAINTING road-marking

lines on a residential street in

Parklands has failed to stop

vehicles speeding through the

area.

The city council attempted

to alleviate vehicles speeding

on Rothesay Rd by installing a

centre line and

side lines on

parts of the

road between

Queenspark

Drive and

Putake Drive.

But the latest

data shows

Kelly Larsen

little change in

the pattern of

speeding along

the 50km/h residential road.

City council staff used a handheld

radar device to measure the

speed of vehicles on Rothesay Rd

and undertook a traffic count.

Staff had previously taken the

same recordings last year and

in 2016. The maximum speed

recorded in April was 136km/h.

In March 2016, 129km/h was

recorded and 118km/h in June

NO CHANGE: The lines painted on Rothesay Rd have not

stopped vehicles from speeding through the area.

last year. Eighteen vehicles were

clocked at more than 100km/h

in April.

The information recorded has

been passed on to police.

Senior Sergeant Kelly Larsen

said Rothesay Rd was regularly

patrolled by police.

She said police are using the

city council data to determine

the most appropriate time to

deploy resources to the road.

City council acting operations

manager Ryan Rolston said

there was no obvious pattern

around when vehicles were

exceeding 100km/h.

According to the city council

data, Fridays were particularly

bad for speeding, with five vehicles

caught travelling faster than

100km/h on the weekday.

Senior Sergeant Larsen said

police will use the evidence to

identify were officers could be

deployed.

“Because there are so many

demands on our time, we need

to be really careful we are deploying

staff in the most efficient

way possible,” she said.

The latest city council traffic

count data shows an increase

in peak traffic volumes along

Rothesay Rd, with the average

being 350 vehicles per hour.

In March 2016, the average

peak hour volume was 262, and

in June 2017, it was 327.

A city council report said

although there was no evidence

the new road markings had

reduced speeding, it was a relatively

low-cost measure coming

in at $3000.

The city council is planning to

buy three relocatable electronic

speed detection and display

signs and may consider putting

one on Rothesay Rd.

Parklands Residents’

Association chairman David

Baines said other solutions may

reduce speeding such as speed

bumps.

He suggested the speed bumps

could be trialled near the corner

of Queenspark Drive and

Rothesay Rd.

However, Mr Rolston said the

city council has not considered

speed bumps and there is no

funding for them currently.

PARKING ISSUES

City council staff are looking

into what can be done about

family members parking cars

on berms and across driveways

when dropping off and picking

up children from New Brighton

Catholic School. The Coastal -

-Burwood Community Board

noted that residents had reported

parking issues and have asked

city staff to follow up on the issue.

Chairwoman Kim Money said

parents just need to be reminded

to be courteous to the neighbours

of the school.

NEW PREMISES SOUGHT

The New Brighton Menzshed

is looking for larger premises

to operate out of. It currently

operates out of a standard

double garage on Hawke St. In

a letter to the Coastal -Burwood

Community Board, trustee Keith

Preen said the garage was far too

small which severely limits the

number of members that can be

accommodated and the type of

projects it can undertake. He

said the organisation needs a

space between 100 to 330 sq

m. It is also requesting a sole

occupancy for safety and security

and ideally an already existing

building. But Mr Preen said if no

building was available, bare land

with building rights may be a

viable option.

Southshore couple

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

Another heAP Vet in the

fAmily….

Our son Connor has

just been accepted

into the Veterinary

Programme

at Massey in

Palmerston North.

Steve and I are

super proud as we

know how hard he’s

worked these past

5 months to make

the cut. A big part of the selection process

now is a weekend of interviews involving real

life situations and personality testing which

accounts for a large percentage of your final

grade. This is new but I think essential in

choosing the kids with the right set of skills

and personality traits to move into a very

select, challenging and not easy profession.

In our experience the best vets we have

encountered were not the cleverest kids

by any means. The unforgettable students

were relatable and practical, enjoyed solving

problems quickly and talking to people,

cared about animals in general, loved the

team environment and were hard workers.

You have to have fantastic work ethic in this

profession and not be a

complainer –

the hours are

long, the days

throw at you

many real life

emergency’s

constantly but

the rewards

personally are

huge. Its not

a job – it’s a

way of life and

it’s a privilege

to care for

pets and their

owners.

All our 3 three sons have loved animals

from day dot. All their lives they have

grown up with cats and dogs and horses

(through my parents). All three boys have

always been kind, caring and respectful

of all our pets and taken responsibility

for them. Our pets have come away on

holiday with us and we are not complete

as a family without them. Right from small

children they spent a fair bit of time at the

vet clinic, whether it be afterhours callouts,

watching their dad operate on eyes, coming

in to medicate and feed sick patients in the

weekends, helping me clean and feed our

cattery cats on public holidays or being an

extra pair of hands at a caesarian. They have

never resented the amount of time we spend

at the clinic and they have always wanted to

hear about interesting cases and be involved.

Up until this year Connor was at UC Berkeley

in San Francisco on a tennis scholarship,

playing for the Cal Tennis team and studying

Open 7 days

an undergraduate

degree in

sciences. He spent

18 months of a 4

year scholarship

there and loved it

but had decided

he’d had enough

of tennis and

wanted to give

Veterinary science

a crack. Connor had given his life to tennis,

first playing at age of 3 and I think he’d simply

had enough. Time for a change and to move

forward with his life. He could have finished

his Undergraduate degree at Berkeley but

then he still needed to do the first semester of

prevet at Massey to gain entry into the course.

So he decided at Christmas to enroll in prevet

and put his Berkeley qualification on hold. He

loved studying at Berkeley – ranked the 6th

Best College in the world. He can finish his

undergraduate studies back there whenever

he wants.

A lot has changed since Steve and I were at

Vet school back in 86 and 87. Many of my

classmates are now lecturers and the Vet

faculty has had a massive much needed

revamp. The campus is much the same

and from what Connor has reported

the campus food is still average – main

problem being “not enough food” plus

no one cooks like his dad.

Believe it or not, Connor has the same

room in the same hostel his dad 31

years ago.

The campus

is pretty and

Connor is

enjoying

exploring all

the old places

in town his

dad and I

did on a

Saturday

night. It

hasn’t

changed

much in nearly 30 years.

Its going to be great having Connor in the

same country for the next 4 or so years. I’m

sure he’ll get lots of visitors. Another “ Heap”

one day at McMaster & Heap, and I know for

sure he’ll not disappoint. Here’s to a fantastic

succession plan. It gets to stay in the family

for the next 60 years or so. We bought the

practice in 1999 – I wonder what it will look

like in 2099. Probably a lot different but I hope

its still called McMaster & Heap, even though

I’ll be long gone!

consent application in November last

year but only received the go-ahead last

get consent after drawn out battle

The Christchurch Coastal

Residents’ United group say a

restricted discretionary activity

rule, recommended by the

replacement District Plan independent

hearings panel, was left

out when the plan was finalised

last year. The group is made up

of coastal residents and experts.

Without the discretionary

rule, under the District Plan new

developments or intensification

of land use in the High Flood

Management Plan area is to be

avoided.

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board deputy chairman Tim

Sintes said leaving the rule out

may have been a mistake and he

is working with interested parties

to put it right.

He said for residents to buy a

section of land and be told they

can’t build or get their money

back was an “extremely distressing”

position to be in.

A city council independent

hearings panel decision on the

rule was scheduled to be made

on Friday but was delayed and

will not be out until Monday

next week.

It comes as Regenerate

Christchurch has started public

consultation with Southshore

and South New Brighton residents

on how to solve rising sea

level issues. MPs met last month

to help solve residents’ problems

over getting resource consents.

Christchurch East MP Poto

Williams said MPs will decide

on what their next action will be

based on the decision made by

the independent hearings panel.

Miss Donne and Mr Wood

were originally told by the city

council a building consent would

be granted in February.

But after agreeing to sign

a waiver under section 72 of

the Building Act 2004 in their

property’s certificate of title, the

consent was granted last month.

Mr Sintes said by signing the

waiver, the city council cannot

take the blame if anything was to

go wrong with the property.

Miss Donne said if she hadn’t

signed the waiver, the couple

would have had to go down the

road of getting a resource consent

as well.

She said it was “daunting”

signing the document as it made

them uncertain as to how it

could affect them in the future in

terms of insurance.

RISK:

Residents in

Southshore

face building

consent

issues due to

being in the

High Flood

Management

Plan area.

Mr Sintes said in the last few

weeks, residents in the High

Flood Management Plan area

have been telling him they have

had difficulty getting insurance.

Miss Donne said she feels

lucky to have a building consent

in the coastal area.

“Some people would say we are

crazy investing in our first home

here, but we love the beach lifestyle

and wouldn’t live anywhere

else.”

She said the extension could

have been built before her baby

was born. It is due on September

25. The couple now won’t begin

the project until summer. Their

home, referred to as a “beach

shack”, is currently 70 sq m.

“Not living in such a small

place that your work clothes

smell of last night’s roast lamb

because the wardrobe is near the

kitchen will be nice,” she said.

They were aware they were in a

flood zone and contacted the city

council before engaging in the

project in about November.

Miss Donne said the city council

initially told them they would

need higher floor levels to allow

the consent to go ahead. But

then they began to get unclear

answers.

She attended several community

board meetings and went

to Mr Sintes to resolve the issue

before the city council proposed

the couple signed the waiver.

But Miss Donne acknowledged

the long process was not entirely

the city council’s fault as the couple’s

engineer had moved away

without telling them, leaving

them “hanging for months”.

Celebrations

for Burwood

church

ST PAUL’S Lutheran Church

in Burwood will reach

a significant milestone this

week.

The church, located on 130

Burwood Rd, is turning 30 years

old on Sunday.

The event will be recognised at

the church’s normal Sunday 10am

service.

St Paul’s Lutheran was first established

as a German church in

1872, on the corner of Worcester

and Montreal Sts in the central

city.

In the mid-1980s, due to innercity

development and a lack of

car parking the church was under

pressure to relocate.

The church relocated to Burwood

in December 1986 and the

newly-built church was officially

opened in July 1988.

From the end of 2013 until early

2018, St Paul’s had been without a

full-time pastor.

In January Pastor Darryl

Shoesmith was appointed.

Another Richmond shop bites the dust

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

UNFINISHED roadworks and

a lack of customers has led to

another business in the eastern

suburbs closing.

The Richmond Village Book

and PostCentre closed on Friday

after 13 years of business on

North Avon Rd.

Owner Alan Spooner said the

roadworks had “basically destroyed”

the store and residents

had not supported the shop.

“It is all very well saying on

Facebook pages ‘let’s support the

shops’ but they don’t . . . if the local

residents had really stood up

and supported we would still be

open,” he said.

Mr Spooner said “there are a

lot of talkers” in Richmond but

“not a lot of doers.”

Bin Inn on Stanmore Rd has

since taken over the post service.

The city council started a full

reconstruction of North Avon Rd

in January, which has since left

businesses struggling to bring

customers into their stores.

Pegasus Post reported in

May that The Green Grocer on

Stanmore Rd closed after the

roadworks caused its business to

decline.

Mr Spooner said the problem

started when the city council

placed temporary traffic lights

across from the entrance to the

DISAPPOINTMENT: Roadworks had “basically destroyed”

the Richmond Village Book and PostCentre, says owner Alan

Spooner.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

shop’s car park.

While the traffic lights have

since been removed, the footpath

and road is still dug up directly

outside his shop.

Mr Spooner said even after the

traffic lights were removed, trading

had not improved.

“I just can’t afford to keep on

ploughing my own money into

the business to keep it open . . . it

is really sad, it used to be a good

shopping centre along here,” he

said.

Richmond Residents’ and

Business Association chairwoman

Hayley Guglietta said “the

truth of the matter was people

weren’t going into his business.”

She said she tries to support

as many businesses as possible

but what was offered at the shop

was perhaps not needed as much

anymore.

“Unfortunately that is a casualty

of the changing world we are

living in,” Mrs Guglietta said.

Bin Inn owner Laura Sing said

it is difficult to know if locals

are supportive of her business as

people from across the city go to

the shop.

But she said she did not think

they could survive on local customers

alone.

Ms Sing said Bin Inn decided

to take over the post centre because

it was an “essential” and

basic service needed in the area.

Mrs Guglietta said she would

love more businesses to become

involved in the association as it is

hoping to work on encouraging

Meeting to

discuss

bus route

changes

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A PUBLIC meeting will be held

in New Brighton on Monday

over the recent bus route

changes in the eastern suburbs.

Christchurch East MP Poto

Williams and Environment

Canterbury representatives will

be discussing the latest changes

as a result of ECan’s Long Term

Plan 2018-2028.

ECan councillor David

Caygill has confirmed he will

be attending while Dr Cynthia

Roberts is also expected to be at

the meeting.

Ms Williams said she was

hoping the public will speak

about public transport and what

the loss of bus routes means for

those living in the community.

ECan confirmed last month

it would combine the 135

Burwood Hospital and 150

The Palms bus routes. The 135

would no longer travel into New

Brighton.

More than 100 trees face axe

•From page 1

City council head of

parks Andrew Rutledge

said from what was

gathered, the cause

of the death and

decline of the trees

relates to the area

being flooded with

seawater over the

last few months.

“The trees are not

able to handle the high salt

content and are practically

drying up,” he said.

The board had a further

urgent meeting on

Wednesday with

the Mr Rutledge to

discuss repair the

on the estuary.

Chairwoman

Kim Money (left)

said city council

staff are looking to get a

coastal engineer’s opinion

on how the estuary can be

approached.

She said funding is “apparently”

an issue and city

council staff are looking

into the issue.

Ms Money said the “clear

message” was she wanted

to get across the fact all

of this could have been

avoided.

“It is because the

earthquake-damaged reno

mattresses has allowed the

water from the estuary to

flood over the land when

we have those storms,” she

said.

Bid to transform Rawhiti

Domain woodland

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

AN AMBITIOUS plan has been

developed to enhance a woodland

area in Rawhiti Domain.

The Guardians of Rawhiti Domain

are planning to transform

the woodland, located off Keyes

Rd, into a “natural play space”.

The vision including treehouses,

a rope-bridge, zip-line

and plantings of woodland flowers

shrubs and pohutukawa was

presented to the Coastal Burwood

Community Board.

It aims to support birds, butterflies

and bees in the domain and

for community enjoyment.

The project will take about a

year to complete.

Guardian committee member

Ruthie Emeny described it as a

“shooting for the moon” plan.

She said the guardians would

like to see the domain protected

and enhanced.

“The woodland area is a lovely

natural space. Enhancing it for

play will create an asset for our

community,” she said.

The idea was formed after

founding member Cathy Baker

noticed a decline in bird, bees

and monarch butterflies.

Mrs Emeny said it was likely

losing 6000 gardens in the red

zone as a result of the Canterbury

earthquakes, meant food for

insects was depleted.

Earlier this year, the city council

assessed a stand of trees on the

Keyes Rd side of the domain.

Seven of the trees were deemed

unsafe and were felled.

The guardians decided to take

advantage of the felled trees by

inviting three playcentre groups

to test out playing on the leftover

tree stumps in the area.

The community board has

since requested city council

staff to consider conducting an

in -depth tree risk assessment/

maintenance programme for the

woodland area.

This is to allow the possibility

of the natural play space to be

developed.

The guardians will be on the

Keyes Rd side of the domain

from 2-4pm on July 22 to get

further ideas from the public

on what could be added to the

“natural space.” On August 22

the guardians will be running a

planting day at the domain and

is planning to get the Shirley,

North Beach and South Brighton

playcentres involved.

Nortons make NZ festival

• By Jacob Page

THE LINWOOD Nortons

under-11 rugby team will be

part of the New Zealand Junior

Rugby Festival in Queenstown

for the first time from

September 28 to September 30.

Team manager Jade Cull said

the team was excited by the

opportunity to play in the event

which sees teams from New

Zealand and Australia compete

in four grades from under-10 to

under-13.

“This is an opportunity that a

lot of teams from clubs like ours

wouldn’t normally get and many

of our kids haven’t travelled

SCHOOLS

much so while there’s a lot to

fundraise, it’s a terrific experience

that, hopefully, the kids

will remember for a long time,”

she said.

The team, which is named

after former All Black and

Linwood club member, Tane

Norton has been undefeated so

far this season after their 2018

grading games.

“The team is playing really

well and they enjoy playing with

each other which helps on game

days,” Cull said.

“We don’t really know a lot

about the other teams but we

won’t be there to make up the

numbers, everyone in the team

loves to play and wants to show

what Linwood can do against

teams from outside (Canterbury),”

she said.

Fundraising efforts will

continue to get the squad to the

event, with extra players being

called in to fill out the squad.

“We want to give these kids a

new and different rugby experience

and we can see when we

mention it that they are really

looking forward to it,’’ she said.

Low-Cost Pensioner

Housing is Trust focus

For 45 years and counting, the Kenneth

F. Weaver trust inc. has been providing low

cost pensioner units for Cantabrians. located

throughout St. albans and edgeware areas,

the twenty nine units which the trust represents

were a dream of founder Kenneth F. Weaver

which became a reality.

the humble and very private community

service benefactor, the Kenneth F. Weaver

trust, inc. bears his name and shares in

the legacy of the prominent Christchurch

businessman. Maintained by a board of

experienced and supportive trustees, the trust

values its years of assistance to the dozens of

pensioners it has been able to serve.

“all those years ago, i felt a strong desire to

support pensioners throughout the city where

i’ve grown up. Having been born in rakaia

and although i have travelled the world, leaving

home at 15 to join the merchant navy, i came

back to start my family several years later.” He

shares. “then upon returning to Christchurch, i

saw a need and felt prompted to do something

about it.”

“i have worked in many industries and

became a businessman who was fortunate in

their investments and business ventures. i have

learned a lot about people and identified a way

to support them. all those years ago, i saw a

need for affordable housing in the pensioner

segment and decided to do something about it.

“i looked at the available central government

schemes and applied for some funding. there

was a lot of paperwork and many questions,

but the ministry saw the value in my goal and

helped me launch the trust. i had set up a

private trust and to this day, my understanding

is that the Kenneth F. Weaver trust inc. is the

only private trust that has been supported

through ministry channels.”

the Kenneth F. Weaver trust inc. well-earned

reputation lives by the motto – For the Benefit

of others and their goal is to offer rental security

for life.

How the unit process works is that a unit

only becomes available when a vacancy

occurs. Most of the residents have been there

for decades. Back in the late 1970’s when the

doors opened, the rent per week was $11.25.

Now forty five years later it has only risen to

$155 a week, for a single person, 1 bedroom

unit and we feel very good about the ability we

have had to maintain and keep our rental costs

as low as possible. We’re not in this to make

a big profit, but to help serve our community

while maintaining our costs.

all the trust units are well maintained, and our

residents and management team take pride in

keeping them in top condition. the gardens are

maintained by residents and a gardener.

each of the units provide one or two

bedrooms, a lounge, kitchen, laundry and

bathroom facilities.

the residents develop a close knit

community and support for each other which

provides comfort and peace of mine for each

resident. there is no medical care on site, but

the trust units have doctor rooms close by.

Interested in applying?

applicants must:

- Be over sixty

- Have a genuine housing need

- Have less than $25,000 in cash

(excludes car or furniture)

at this time the trust is taking applications

for their waiting list. Apply online at

kennethfweartrust.co.nz.

Brighton makes an impact on new pastor

Grace Vineyard

Church beach

campus pastor

James Renwick

writes about

moving from

Scotland to

New Brighton

MY FAMILY and I have just

moved to this wonderful city

from Scotland.

We are the new pastors at

Grace Vineyard Church beach

campus in New Brighton.

We are excited to play our

small part in serving this

community and together step

into the greater days that are

ahead.

In our short time here, there

are some things we have quickly

grown to love about the people of

the east.

Firstly, you are a resilient

people. You have been through a

lot, but in spite of the hardships

and the knock-backs, you

continue to press on.

COMMUNITY: James Renwick, who has moved from Scotland

to New Brighton, is excited about the area’s future.

Many other communities

would have given up by now, but

you choose to press forward.

I love that many do not let the

past define them and I can see

many working towards a greater

tomorrow.

Even though it seems others

have forgotten the east, we do

not have to forget it.

Secondly, you are a caring

people. One of our best

discoveries since being here has

been the People’s Independent

Republic of New Brighton

Facebook page.

If you can see beyond the

posts of missing cats, and the

occasional moan, you see a

community that truly looks after

one another.

That is rare to find in this

independent world. When

someone is in need, someone

offers help.

When someone loses

everything, the community

gathers around to bring them

something.

I know we can look at the

obvious issues in the area, but we

do not have to let the minority

ruin it for the majority.

Walking around the east,

there seems to be a rising hope

in people’s hearts that there are

better days coming.

There are some great signs of

regeneration. The New Brighton

Beachside Playground, which

my wee boy loves, consent

being lodged for the hot pools,

which I will love, quality cafes

in the area, the Taiora: QE II

Recreation and Sport Centre, the

new schools soon to arrive and

more.

Facilities and commerce will

help Brighton but it is the people

that make Brighton.

I think this community will

continue to be a better place to

live in, work in and raise our

kids in, as we continue to look

out for one another and do

our small part to brighten up

Brighton as we rise above any

negativity.

If we can look beyond what

we currently see, I wonder what

New Brighton could be.

Readers react to last

week’s article about the

dying trees along the South

Brighton Domain estuary

edge. A decision has now

been made to cut them

down (see page 1)

Gary Knight – Surely the

situation of dying trees at the

South Brighton Domain estuary

edge should be

immediately rectified

by selected removal

from a qualified city

council arborist.

In alignment with

the Southshore and

South Brighton

regeneration strategy,

it is vital from not

only a safety, but

also an aesthetic

perspective, to eradicate dead,

dying or unstable trees due

to the erosive nature of the

edge they are anchored into.

These ideals must be actioned

through consultation between

the city council and the

Coastal-Burwood Community

Board to ensure a sense of

rationale prevails over this

contentious issue, prior to the

suggested civic action on the

issue by the city council as at

March 2019. Within this context,

the criteria of the city council’s

Long Term Plan 2018-2028 to

operate grants as a contributory

factor towards community

building is the catalyst for

required funding

for this community

project to be met

from

city council coffers.

Peter Kerr – It

must be a countrywide

moronic

council thing, we

are having the same

issue around the

lake front in Rotorua. Vanity

projects are far more important

than looking after existing information

structures and facilities.

Sonya O’Connor – The

city council probably doesn’t

have the money to do it since it

EROSION: The city council will cut down the dying trees along

the South Brighton Domain estuary edge.

has wasted $1.2 million on an

interactive screen for the public

library and millions of

dollars on cycleways that

cyclists don’t actually have to use

by law.

Angela Toomey – Sadly

people came before trees. If the

community had been aware

maybe they could have helped.

Christchurch has had a lot to

deal with so prioritising this was

possibly challenging in fairness

to the city council.

Karen Whila – Are they

those ugly pine trees? Be nice

to see native salt marsh plants

instead.

Marie Carney – Doubt they

could have been saved – toxic

liquefaction and exposed roots

most likely killed them.

The Northshore

Residents’ Association has

gone to the city council to

find out who is responsible

for maintaining run-down

sculptures in the suburb

Rob Eder – You’ll have to

do it yourselves, the city council

doesn’t have any money left, it

has already spent it on cycleways

and giant flat screens.

Ashley Crook – Maybe

they could get someone who

lives in their community to do

voluntary maintenance? If it’s

just aesthetic, then I’m sure

there’s a qualified plasterer and

a qualified painter to do some

touch-ups. This association

could get discretionary funding

from the community board to

help the association reimburse

the community members for the

supplies or for their time.

Now with the colder and wetter weather on

its way, home owners are focusing on ways

to make their homes comfortable, warm and

healthy for their families throughout winter.

Rising damp is an issue that affects many of

our older properties which suffer from poor, or

no, insulation. In Canterbury especially, postquake,

many people have relocated to homes

that suffer from rising damp which can be

associated with health problems. Independent

tests have shown that up to 40 litres of water can

rise from the ground and enter a house every

day, leading to mildew, mould, condensation

and musty smells. Moulds can produce

various allergic reactions and the

frail, elderly and very young are

especially vulnerable.

Canterbury Foam Concrete

Ltd is a locally owned and

operated firm. The team

understands the problems

caused by rising damp and are

there to help. They will come

to your damp home and pump

a lightweight, flowable foam

concrete under your timber

floored home. Specially adapted

for our New Zealand conditions and

applications it provides a layer of protection

against rising moisture. An unexpected

benefit that the team at Canterbury Foam

Concrete have noticed recently, is that many

owners of properties which had underfloor

foam concrete installed, reported that it also

provided protection against liquefaction after

the earthquakes.

ventilation needs. Phone 03 376 4608 or

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

the best. Enviro Master Ltd offer a free, no

obligation quote and will come to your home

to see what is required.

What makes a great

Heat Transfer System?

There are a number of Heat Transfer

systems on the market. Smooth-Air

ventilation specialists offer a range of HTU

Heat Transfer Units with carefully selected

components to optimise the system:

They use insulated duct to transfer the

heated air with as little heat loss as possible.

The fan moves sufficient air for the distance

and number of rooms, without being noisy.

The diffusers send the heat to the floor,

not to skim the across the ceilings. All

components are good quality - designed to

operate for years without problems.

Smooth-Air’s HTUs come in a range of

options: One to four rooms, with or without

thermostat and with a choice of grilles and

diffusers. HTUs improve energy efficiency

in your house, as you are using excess

heat. They have low power consumption

- only 80watts for the three room system.

Circulating air through the house also

reduces the risk of damp.

You can also choose the HTU version

with downjet diffusers, which throw the

warm air downwards to the floor. These

downjet diffusers can also be adjusted to

regulate which room receives the most

warm air.

An average size living room requires 2-4

kw of heating, yet appliances such as log

burners generate heat in the region of 10

-20kw. This leaves an excess of 8 -16kw of

heat which sits at high level in the heated

room, usually above door level.

Heat transfer units work best where very

hot air has ‘stratified’ into a layer near the

ceiling. So heat pumps, which circulate

warm air around the room with no

layering, are not suitable as a heat source

by themselves. However, if you have both

log burner and a heat pump, heat transfer

systems with thermostat can work very

well: The heat pump stops operating once

the heat from the fire has heated the room,

and the heat transfer kicks in above this

point, once there is a layer of hot air at the

ceiling.

(0800 766 684) to ask how they can help

you with your Heat Transfer, as well as

any other ventilation requirements.

REAL ESTATE

A beautiful life… in serene seclusion

99 Purau Port Levy Road, Purau Bay

Negotiation over $939,000 plus GST (if any)

5 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 1 living/dining room | 3 car garage | 21.2440ha freehold land | Listing #6459

The interior of this extraordinarily

appealing home has been largely crafted

using the enduring beauty of native timber,

resulting in superb spaces for those who want

a whole lot more than a strictly utilitarian

box in a suburban setting. It offers all the

rustic charm you want with all the comfort

you need, combining all day sun with

beautiful views and superb living spaces,

solar hot water panels, two water tanks, a log

burner on wetback and gas cooking.

The cleverly designed floor plan allows

for many options. Live on one side of the

home with three double bedrooms upstairs

with one of these opening onto its own

balcony and a spacious sun drenched open

plan kitchen/lounge opening to the deck

and garden. Along with all of this, two tile

and timber detailed bathrooms all make for

good family living or, in the unlikely event,

you want to share your piece of paradise

with others this will, of course, make for

a wonderful Airbnb proposition, with 2

bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with its own

open plan kitchen and living areas opening

onto the balcony. Tucked away, a short walk

from the main house must be the ultimate

romantic retreat in the form of a candle

lit cabin with an outdoor bath over a fire.

21.2440ha freehold land.
