for the

future

While the French were dominating at the World Cup last week, another club in blue were running out some

potential stars of the future. Ferrymead Bays footballer Api Rabuka was a star at the Christchurch International Cup,

winning the golden boot award as joint top scorer in the under-14 grade. Bays entered a host of teams in school

holiday competitions – find out how they went on page 15.

THE HISTORY of Lyttelton

and the Bay Harbour area is set

to be digitally preserved.

The Lyttelton Museum has

received a $108,000 grant from

the Lottery Environment and

Heritage Committee to scan

thousands of historic images

relating to the harbour area and

community.

The museum’s collection

has been in storage since the

earthquakes, when the entire

collection was rescued from its

historic premises on Norwich

Quay.

Currently concept designs

for a new museum building in

Lyttelton are being developed

by architects Warren &

Mahoney.

Said museum collections

team lead Lizzie Meek: “We

are absolutely delighted

that we will be able to scan

and preserve our wonderful

collection of historic images.”

“Not only will this protect

our fragile originals, but we

will also be able to make the

pictures available in our online

collection, so they can be

accessed easily by anyone with

an internet connection.”

THERE’S A fantastic project about to get

under way in Lyttelton (see page 1).

Lyttelton Museum has been granted

just over $100k to digitise the port and

surrounding area’s history.

The museum wants the community to play a part in the project

by adding their memories and other gems of information of the

harbour area’s great history.

I suspect they will get some good uptake on this.

Another step in what will be a fairly steep climb over the

consent/coastal hazards issue is aired on page 3.

A public meeting will be held next week to bring residents affected

by council rules and regulations up to speed.

We also share a story from a couple across the estuary in

Southshore (pages 6-7).

Public meeting to discuss issues

Coastal flooding

worry for

residents wanting

resource consents

• By Sarla Donovan

A PUBLIC meeting will be held

next week aiming to discuss

problems coastal residents

are facing getting resource

consents.

Christchurch Coastal Residents

United chairman Simon

Watts said many Sumner,

Redcliffs, Southshore, South

Brighton and Taylors Mistake

residents were unaware of the

potential problems facing sites

within the High Flood Hazard

Management Area.

At issue is the way sites in a

‘restricted unit overlay’ within

the HFHMA are treated by city

council planners.

CCRU say a restricted

discretionary activity rule

recommended by the Replacement

District Plan independent

hearings panel – and meant to

govern sites within the RUO –

was left out when the plan was

implemented last year.

The restricted unit overlay

comprises 1486 residential

zoned sites within the HFHMA

which are only at risk from

future sea level rise – not river

or tidal flooding.

City council planning staff

will be present at the meeting.

But CCRU say property owners

within the restricted unit

overlay have been facing huge

difficulty getting resource and/

or building consent because

TIDAL: Sumner is one of the areas which could be at risk from future sea level rise.

without the discretionary rule,

under the District Plan the sites

are treated the same as any

others within the HFHMA,

whereby “new developments or

intensification of land uses . . .

are to be avoided.”

Mr Watts said many people in

areas covered by the RUO “are

in complete ignorance that this

problems even exists and we’d

rather not let them discover it

like we’ve discovered it – one

couple breaking up at a time;

one family at a time having

to move out in distress. We’d

rather give them a heads-up.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

UNLOCKED VEHICLE STOLEN

An unlocked vehicle was stolen

from Takamatua Beach Rd on

Wednesday night. The 2004 black

Ford Territory was parked in a

driveway and the keys were in the

ignition, said Akaroa police Senior

Constable Tim Johnson. “It looks

like they tried other unlocked cars

around the area as well, there were

doors open and it looks like they’d

gone through a couple.” He said

people should ensure their vehicles

are locked when not in use.

CHALLENGE BREAK-IN

The Challenge Little River Garage

was broken into just before 5am on

Thursday. Two offenders wearing

hooded sweatshirts smashed the

front glass Ranchslider, setting off

an alarm. Security footage showed

them running behind the counter

then dashing out the front door

without taking anything. It’s the

second time in six months the

garage has been targeted.

WHARF STRUCTURES TO GO

Black Cat Cruises has confirmed

it will remove all non -authorised

structures from outside its

premises on Akaroa Wharf after a

request from the Banks Peninsula

Community Board. Black Cat chief

executive Paul Milligan said the

work is expected to be completed

before summer.

HISTORIC: A

view of the

harbour from

Sumner Rd in

1882.

PAST:

Looking

down

London St,

Lyttelton, in

1890.

• By Sophie Cornish and Sarla

Donovan

A DRINK driver and his two

passengers are probably lucky to

be alive after he backed his car

into the sea.

The incident (right) happened

at 12.45am on Thursday at Duvauchelle,

between the campground

and the boatsheds.

Akaroa Volunteer Fire

Brigade chief fire officer Mark

Thomson said if the vehicle had

gone into the sea an hour later,

it would have been nearly high

tide and the trio would probably

have drowned.

“They were very lucky . . . if

the water was any higher and

the car had flipped upside down,

they would have drowned

because they wouldn’t have been

able to get themselves out.”

Senior Constable Tim Johnson

said a small white fluffy dog,

which was in the car, appears to

have distracted the driver.

“They’ve backed out of an address

and it appears that a small

dog in the vehicle might have

got between the driver’s legs and

they’ve reversed back over the

seawall.”

The Toyota Rav4 was left

teetering with its back axle in

the water.

Senior Constable Johnson

would not say what breath alcohol

level the 47-year-old Banks

Peninsula man had. However,

he will appear in district court

on a drink driving charge.

He said there was no immediate

danger to those inside.

“It’s lucky it ended up where it

did. If it was a smaller vehicle, it

could have gone end over end or

slid to the side.”

Southshore couple get consent after

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

CHARLOTTE DONNE and

Dylan Wood wanted nothing

more than to add a small

extension to their home in time

for their first child’s arrival in

September.

The Southshore couple had

planned to expand their small

beach cottage by 60 sq m to

allow for more space in their

kitchen and lounge area.

But what should have been a

simple process to get a building

consent from the city council

for their home on Rocking

Horse Rd turned into a long

“battle.” Coastal residents living

in the city council’s High Flood

Management Plan area are facing

difficulties obtaining resource

consent to extend their homes or

build on empty sections.

Miss Donne and Mr Wood

lodged their consent application

in November last year but only

received the go-ahead last

month.

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.

HURDLES:

Southshore

couple Dylan

Wood and

Charlotte

Donne have

been through

a drawn out

process with

the city council

to get a small

extension to

their home.

MARTIN

HUNTER

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.

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

her baby was born. It is

couple now won’t begin

70 sq m.

“Not living in such a

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

Fire rages, homes at risk

Building nearly ready after repairs

• By Sarla Donovan

EARTHQUAKE repairs on the

historic Akaroa Service Centre

building are nearing completion

with a ribbon-cutting ceremony

The heritage-listed 1915

structure, a prominent

landmark in the centre of

town, has undergone $1 million

of repairs over the past two

years after suffering damage

in the February 22, 2011,

earthquakes.

Once reopened it will

provide city council services,

access to governance staff and

community board meeting

space.

Akaroa District Promotions

will also operate from the

building, which was built to

replace the former single-storey

wooden post office.

In 1993 it was sold by New

Zealand Post after the reorganisation

of Government

services under the fourth

Labour Government.

The repaired building with be

formally opened on August 8.

Getting pests under control

• By Sarla Donovan

THE CITY council is a step closer

to signing a memorandum of

understanding on pest control on Banks

Peninsula.

Last week, the Infrastructure, Transport

and Environment Committee

endorsed the memorandum which

supports a collaborative approach to

ridding the region of pests.

The multi-agency initiative aims to

free the 100,000ha peninsula of pests by

2050 – in tandem with a national commitment

from the Government.

It focuses on a co-coordinated

response to pest control, allowing for

information collation, central planning

and operational organisation.

The other parties involved are the

Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust,

Environment Canterbury, Department

of Conservation, Koukourarata

Runanga, Rod Donald Banks Peninsula

Trust, Selwyn District Council and

Summit Rd Society.

It ties in with the Predator Free New

Zealand 2050 vision announced by

the Government two years ago which

aims to remove opossums, rodents and

mustelids from large areas of the North

and South Island. Other introduced

predators found on Banks Peninsula are

feral goats, deer, cats and pigs, rabbits,

hares and hedgehogs.

DoC has been trying to eradicate

feral goats from the area with a muster

removing 220 goats earlier this year and

professional hunters brought in several

weeks ago to finish the remainder off

from the area around Little Akaloa.

The goats are considered a threat to

native and endemic plants, destroying

both flora and fauna biodiversity.

And the Spreydon-Cashmere Community

Board recently approved a

$45,000 grant to the Summit Rd Society’s

Predator Free Port Hills project

which supports backyard trapping.

Funding brought forward

for Diamond Harbour wharf

upgrade.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Shane France – The $3.5

million mentioned which is to be

used for the repair of Diamond

Harbour wharf could be a good

thing. What I see when I look at

the Diamond Harbour wharf is a

beautiful worn wooden structure

and a historical piece of the

area. I just hope that the repair

retains the character and look

that it currently has. We lose

too many historically beautiful

structures to new modern looking

constructions in Christchurch

and New Zealand. There

are many photos of Diamond

Harbour. I know it would lose

something if we replaced the

wharf with a modern looking

simulation. There are very few

places left around Canterbury

that have the quaint little village

feel, let’s not spoil this one.

The Redcliffs School

debate continues

Bronwyn Simpson – As

a resident who has an outlook

over Redcliffs Park I would like

to throw my support behind the

hard working and talented team

at Redcliffs School. A huge thank

you to both the previous and

current principal and the amazing

BOT team for your tireless

work in bringing the school back

to our community. I understand

that not everyone agrees that

the school should be at Redcliffs

Park but this decision was taken

out of the school’s hand. It was

either lose the school or have it

at the park. A school is at the

heart of a community, and I am

so grateful that the decision was

made to bring our school back.

It is disappointing to see a small

group of people trying to create

division in our community

regarding the new school, the

decision has been many years

coming, and now that it has

been made, let’s look forward

and put our support behind the

people who have worked so hard

to stop its closure. Thank you

again Kim, Rose and the BOT

for everything you have done.

We all appreciate your hard work

and dedication to bringing our

school back. I am so looking

forward to the day that I can

look out my window and see and

hear our Redcliffs children playing

and having fun in their new

school grounds.

Brian Johnston – There are

two main reasons for not building

a new school at Redcliffs.

It can only be funded by more

debt. The proposed site is landfill.

There are many more reasons,

flooding and traffic jams.

It will be too late after the school

is built to learn that children are

picking up infections through

injury – a scratch is enough;

there could be toxic gases rising

from the landfill which could

enter a classroom. Has the new

site been thoroughly tested?

(The answer is no). The new site

should be checked and tested

by a medical geologist who can

evaluate health issues. Ruth

Dyson has stated: “I have been

through all the reports and cannot

understand why the school

is being moved.” After that

profound statement she will not

get involved. I visited her office

and asked for her involvement –

zilch.

Sumner play for Hawkins Plate

• By Gordon Findlater

THE HAWKINS Plate now has

Sumner’s full attention after

their top six campaign ended

with a 15-45 loss to Christchurch

at St Leonards Park on Saturday.

The result ended what was a

disappointing run in the Hawkins

Trophy after Sumner created

history last month by qualifying

for the top six for the first time.

They qualified by finishing the

round-robin in third position –

their highest placing ever.

Coming into the match against

Christchurch, Sumner had

no chance of making the top

four. However, coach Martin

Dodgson was hoping for a better

performance against one of the

competition’s top sides.

“We made a lot of errors and

they capitalised – they were

ruthless,” said Dodgson.

One positive to come from

the match was the display from

recent arrival, English lock Josh

Hawkins. He has come to Sumner

to get game time following

an injury-ravaged season with

English club Bristol.

“He was really impressive

. . . he made some big hits and

carried the ball really well,” said

Dodgson.

With a standout performance

coming from Hawkins, it was

almost fitting that Sumner celebrated

their annual internationals

day on Saturday.

Sumner have a strong history

of embracing international players

in their premier team and

decided to celebrate their global

culture over a cold beverage after

the match.

“It was great to celebrate the

occasion with a class club like

Christchurch,” said Dodgson.

Sumner are now in the same

spot they were 12 months ago,

playing for the Hawkins Plate

which is contested between the

bottom two teams from the top

six and top two teams from the

bottom six.

SPORTS

FINAL PUSH: After missing

out on a top four semi-final

spot, Sumner will look to end

their season on a high with a

push for the Hawkins Plate.

PHOTO: ROZELLE MAY

They host Marist Albion at

St Leonards on Saturday in the

plate semi-final.

Sumner took the honours

36-27 when the two sides met in

April. However, Marist finished

top of the bottom six and have

been in good form going unbeaten

in their last six matches.

The winner of the match will

meet the winner of the other

plate semi-final between University

and High School Old Boys.

Last year Sumner made the

plate final before falling to

New Brighton 17-19 at Rawhiti

Domain.

Bays develop talent at school holiday tournaments

MUDDY WORK: The under-14 Cheetahs finished sixth in the

Allan Fraser girls only tournament in Kaiapoi.

THE FIRST week of the school

holidays was mid-winter

tournament time for Ferrymead

Bays’ junior football teams.

The club had a host of teams

competing in two tournaments

– the Christchurch International

Cup at Christchurch United

FC in Yaldhurst, and the Allan

Fraser girls only tournament in

Kaiapoi.

In Yaldhurst, Bays teams competed

in the under-9, under-10,

under-11, under-12, under-13

and under-14 grades. Although

no medals were won, all teams

did well and thoroughly enjoyed

competing against about 16

teams in each grade from

around the South Island.

The under-13 team had the

best result for Bays finishing

fourth. Both the under-14 and

under-9 teams finished fifth.

The under-10 team finished 10 th ,

the under-11’s were 11 th and the

under-12’s 14 th .

At Kendall Park, Kaiapoi,

Bays were represented by the

Kingfishers in the under-10

grade and the Cheetahs in the

under-14 grade. Both teams

were there for development and

finished sixth.

There was also a personal honour

for Kingfishers goalkeeper

Kira Williams, who won the

golden glove award.

DEVELOPING: The under-10 Kingfishers also finished sixth in Kaiapoi.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves whic had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stan down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a settlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffere damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

It was the firs time Mr Garth

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

The preparation for this year’s

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Gart hopes t own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

Only eight submi sions were

The district council wi l be

A hearing i scheduled to be

The bylaw comes as an increasing

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

Pupils learn about role of war horses

The presentation is a prelude

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

Mr Winder and his team, the

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

IT COULD be some time before

charges are laid in relation to the

fatal hit-and-run in Dallington.

Detective Senior Sergeant Greg

Cottam said yesterday the vehicle

involved in the crash last week

was still being examined.

He said there was still a lot of

work to do to gather all the information

and finish police inquiries

before any charges would be laid.

“They can take some time,” he

said.

“We’ve got six months to lay

charges in relation to traffic offending

– it certainly won’t take

that long.”

Steffan Pearce-

Loe (right), 30, was

hit by a vehicle

near the Gayhurst

Rd bridge while

walking his dogs at

about 2.30am last

Thursday.

He died in hospital

from his injuries on Friday.

His funeral was held on Tuesday.

Police found the vehicle

involved, which had damage

consistent with the crash, on Saturday.

A detective saw it parked

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Huia Sinclair-Parker, 10, was at

Willowbank Wildlife Reserve

for Kidfest’s ‘Junior Keeper

for the Day’ programme

yesterday when Neo

swooped in.

Having Neo, the kea, on her

shoulder was exciting, “but

scary at the same time.”

“It jumped on me from behind

and gave me a surprise. They

have sharp claws that dug

into my shoulders.”

Children aged from 10-13 are

working with Willowbank

keepers during the holidays.
