STAYING POSITIVE: Blind organist Richard Hore with wife Marilyn and daughter Megan. Her cancer battle will be his

biggest challenge ever.

Blind organist family’s cancer battle

• By Julia Evans

WELL-KNOWN blind organist

Richard Hore has had many

challenges in his life.

But he is facing his biggest one

yet after his 18-year-old daughter

Megan was diagnosed with bone

cancer.

Mr Hore has been a staple of

the Christchurch music scene

since 1973 and is now busking

outside Bush Inn Countdown

every weekend to raise money to

make Megan’s dream come true

and take her to Disneyland Paris.

“It’s amazing to be able to make

people happy with my playing

and it’s a really positive thing for

Meg,” Mr Hore said.

He said sometimes when he

sings, he wants to cry thinking

about his daughter.

“It is a wonderful, emotional

outlet for me.”

Megan was diagnosed with

cancer 18 months ago.

“Basically one day in late

August, Meg woke up with what

she thought was a cramp,” Mrs

Hore said.

A few weeks later she noticed

her daughter was still limping.

“You’re a dancer, you rockclimb,

you run, you’re young

and super fit: ‘You shouldn’t be

limping,’ I said to her. Then I

realised something didn’t seem

quite right.”

After a visit to the GP and an

X-ray, the family thought all was

well – they’d booked tickets to see

Victoria and Abdul.

TWO YOUTHS accused of

torturing and killing a cat in

Christchurch have been the

target of abuse on social media.

But the SPCA which is

investigating the incident said

yesterday it may not have been

a deliberate act of animal

cruelty.

Said SPCA Canterbury chief

executive Barry Helem: “We

believe it was not a deliberate

act of cruelty, but we will be

following our processes to verify

that.”

The investigation, which has

involved the police, is in its “very

early stages,” he said.

A video of what appeared to be

a cat being tortured and killed

was sent to the New Zealand

Herald on Tuesday.

Two videos were posted on

Snapchat by a teenage girl,

who is a friend of the two

youths.

She also has been the target of

a backlash on social media.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Burger queen hangs up apron

People go

yum over

Mrs Lum’s

fast food

• By Matt Salmons

IF YOU love burgers, chances

are you’ve heard of Lowsee Lum,

affectionately known by most as

Mrs Lum.

Working in her son Steve

Lum’s Woolston eatery, Big

Ed’s Takeaways, almost every

day for more than 20 years, the

85-year-old mother of 11, and

grandmother of 21, finally hung

up the apron on Sunday as the

business changed hands.

“She’s just that kind of

woman, she can’t just be at

home, she’s got to be doing

something,” Mr Lum said.

“She was always hands-on, her

speciality was burgers. People

loved them.”

Mr Lum said Big Ed’s staff

were regularly asked if Mrs

Lum could prepare their order,

especially the crowd favourite

the Big Ed burger.

“She’s got the magic touch.

She does everything the same

as me but customers always ask

if she can make it. She’s been

doing it so long, everyone just

prefers her food.

“She just puts a lot of love

[into the food] I think,” he said.

Mother and son worked their

last shift together on Sunday

night before new owners took

over on Monday. Mr Lum said

it had been busy and quite emotional

for him, but his mother

took it all in her stride.

Before moving to New

Zealand in the 1990s, Mrs Lum

had emigrated from Guangdong

province, China, to Fiji in the

1950s. Eventually opening

English, Hindi or Fijian.

Mr Lum said his mother had

been renowned for her wontons,

with families travelling from

around Fiji to try them.

When Mr Lum took over

Big Ed’s, in Ferry Rd, in 1994,

his mother’s vast experience

and tireless work ethic quickly

became an invaluable asset to

the business.

“She was the main lady, she

was the boss,” Mr Lum said.

“Without her, I couldn’t have

been as successful as I was. I

could always rely on her.”

When the February 22, 2011,

the building, the Lums cooked

community. With the help and

encouragement of his mother,

Mr Lum reopened on the same

site in 2014.

Mr Lum said both had recently

come to a point where they

were ready to move on from the

business. He said his mother’s

December holiday to Fiji and

12 hurt in Bromley

A person suffered moderate

injuries and 11 others minor

injuries after a chemical spill in

the Bromley yesterday. Emergency

services were called Argus Heating

on Maces Rd at about 9.30am. All

12 were taken to Christchurch

Hospital to be assessed and treated.

Charges amended in

‘drown him’ case

Two youths defending charges

relating to the Rolleston “drown

him” case have had their charges

amended. Originally, the 15 and

16-year-old were charged with

aggravated robbery. A hearing on

Tuesday amended the charges to

injury with intent to injure. A two

or three-day hearing will be held

beginning on December 3. Police

allege the attack happened after a

fireworks display in Rolleston on

November 4. The 15-year-old victim

was allegedly beaten then dragged

to a water race where his head was

held under the water. The incident

came after the victim allegedly

refused to hand over his cap.

Vandals destroy trees

and shrubs

Twenty-six trees and more than

130 shrubs have been vandalised

around the central city’s Rauroa

Park in the past few weeks. Ōtākaro

has spent about $10,000 replacing

the damaged trees and shrubs. It is

now considering other short-term

measures to deter vandals.

Athletics track to be

completed soon

Ngā Puna Wai Sports Hub’s first

stage – an international-standard

athletics track – is just months

away from opening. When

completed it will offer a 400m

track, 12 tennis courts, two hockey

turfs and two rugby league fields.

Each section of the complex will

have a staged opening as the work

is completed ahead of an overall

site opening planned for next

March. The athletics track will

open in October, with the hockey

turfs following in December.

Abundance of pokie machines creates

The high number

of pokie machines

in Christchurch has

lead to a high rate of

gambling addiction,

according to a new

report. Julia Evans

investigates

THE CITY’S high number

of pokie machines means

Christchurch is “overrepresented”

in gambling

addiction.

The Economic Impacts of

NCGMs on Christchurch City

report says although reported

problem gambling rates

are gradually declining for

Christchurch, comparatively

the number of people seeking

assistance for gambling problems

is high per head of population

than nationally.

The city remains overrepresented

in the problem

gambling treatment service user

statistics.”

In the last year, there were

1207 people who sought help

for gambling problems in

Christchurch – two per cent

higher than the national average.

The report also said the city

has more gaming machines

per venue and more gaming

machines per head of population

compared to the national

average.

•As of April there were

1332 non-casino gaming

machines in 86 venues

around the city.

•Christchurch has a high

ratio of gaming machines

per head of population.

Tauranga is the only city to

have more.

The city received $13.6

million in funding from

gaming machines last year.

More than half went to

sports clubs.

•Reported problem

gambling interventions are

gradually declining, but the

city is still over represented

with 8.2 per cent of people

out of every 10,000 seeking

help, compared to 6.2 per

cent nationally.

ADDICTION: Christchurch’s

gambling addiction rate is

two per cent higher than

the national average.

There is an association

between density of machines and

rates of problem gambling. More

machines doesn’t necessarily

mean more expenditure, but it

may mean more harm.”

There are 1332 gaming

machines in 86 venues. Of the

country’s major cities, only

Tauranga has more gaming

machines per capita.

The Salvation Army Oasis

national operations manager

Lisa Campbell told The Star

it supported 129 people in

Canterbury last year who were

harmed by pub and club pokie

gambling.

“We also did brief

interventions with another 128

people who were harmed by pub

and club pokies.”

She said The Salvation Army

saw less than 10 per cent of

people affected by gambling

harm.

The report was released to

help inform the city council’s

regulatory performance

committee decision to reapprove

its “sinking lid” policy.

The policy prevents any new

class four gambling licences,

which allow gambling on

gaming machines in pubs and

clubs, from being given out

for a further three years to

slowly reduce the number of

pokies.

Fire rages, homes at risk

more Chch problem gamblers

“It is considered appropriate to

continue to focus on a reduction

of gambling opportunities

throughout the city. This is

particularly because Christchurch

continues to have a high number

of gaming machines per head of

population and comparatively

high rates of people seeking

assistance for gambling

problems,” the report said.

The policy was put in place in

2004. Last week The Star reported

that the city council is calling

for the Christchurch Casino to

give more money back to the

community and help support

problem gamblers.

However, the report also

highlights a benefit of gaming

machines. “The community as a

whole benefits from the return of

profits either as grants to

community organisations

through the various trusts that

own the machines or benefits

provided to members of chartered

clubs.”

The report said there had been

concerns raised regarding the

decline in funding.

But it says that continuing

the sinking lid policy is still

considered the best approach

to reducing the gambling

opportunities available.

An addict’s story of recovery

• By Julia Evans

AT THE height of his

addiction Graeme Watson was

gambling away about $1000 a

day.

It devastated his family

and resulted in the loss of his

home, several businesses and

half a million dollars in debt.

“I was addicted to pretty

much everything back then,

pokies included . . . it would

be hard to calculate how much

I was spending, but it would

have been a lot. It wouldn’t be

out of the realms of $1000 a

day.”

He said he was able to hide

the extent of his addictive

behaviour, which included

pokies, cards, sports betting,

alcohol and drugs, because

it was all done outside of his

home.

It was 25 years ago when his

wife Karen Watson found out

and tried to force her husband

to get help

“But she had to realise she

couldn’t help. That’s what I

was, I was an addict. Instead

CHANGE: Graeme Watson

she started to make changes

for herself, for the family” he

said.

Mr Watson said at that point

he had nothing left – he finally

realised he needed to change.

“I was spiritually, physically

and emotionally dead. It was

either get help or end my life.

I chose the slow and hard way,

like I was bleeding to death.”

Mrs Watson founded the Familial

Trust addiction service,

which supports addicts and

their families, in 2001. Her

husband is now the assistant

manager at the service.

Mr Watson said if people

were on the same path as

him, they had to want help

and change. “If you want one

takeaway, it would be that

there is life after addiction,” he

said.

He said the availability of

pokies in the city does increase

the number of people who

become hooked on gambling.

“Availability is one issue, but

it’s only one of many,” he said.

Mr Watson said while

statistics showed only a small

portion of pokie users were

classed as “problem gamblers”,

from his experience it was

much higher.

“It’s more like 80 per cent do

so in a manner that is a bit of

fun. But there are 20 per cent

of pokie users who it’s harming,

as well as their families

and friends.”

Robots for

new library

• By Julia Evans

SEVENTY-FOUR people will be

working at the new central city

library when it opens in October

– and two robots.

Tūranga establishment

manager Erica Rankin said the

robots, called Robotic Caddy,

are part of the library’s new

automated materials handling

system.

They look like mini forklifts;

it’s really cool technology,” she

said.

Ms Rankin said the caddies

pick up bins of returned books

and take them from the reception

area of Tūranga over to the

other side of the building to be

sorted.

“Essentially jobs aren’t being

replaced, but staff will be freed

up to spend more time with our

customers.”

The robotic caddies will be the

Busking to get sick daughter to Paris

•From page 1

“We were just leaving home

when the phone rang. The GP

said: ‘You have to come and see

me now’,” Mrs Hore said.

“We went right away and the

doctor said: ‘There’s no easy way

to say this, but you have osteosarcoma’.”

Megan immediately started

chemotherapy to treat the bone

cancer, Mrs Hore said.

“We were positive at that

stage. We caught it early and we

thought chemo would work.”

But after testing they were told

the chemotherapy wasn’t working,

Megan has a 50 per cent

survival rate.

There was supposed to be 10

per cent cancer cells, but they

found 50 per cent. We were absolutely

gutted,” Mrs Hore said.

“We’re not ready to be a threecog

unit, we’re better with four

cogs.”

It’s not the first time the Hore

family has dealt with cancer.

“When they were young, the

girls both had retinablastoma,

which is what Richard has. But we

dealt with that, we went through

the chemo and we thought we

got through that, we’ve done our

dash,” Mrs Hore said.

FAMILY BOND: Well-known Christchurch organist Richard Hore is raising money to take

his family to Disneyland Paris. Pictured are Richard, Megan, Amy and Marilyn during a trip

to Disneyland Anaheim seven years ago.

“It’s really knocked our socks off.”

Megan has since had four more

rounds of chemo. Once the latest

round is finished, she will go back

for testing.

Mrs Hore said if cancer was

found, Megan would be diagnosed

terminal.

“We all have it in the back

of our mind, but we don’t let it

overcome us.”

Instead, they’re focused on ticking

off Megan’s bucket list – a trip

to every Disneyland around the

world.

She went to the California

theme park when she was 11,

leaving Paris, Florida, Tokyo,

Hong Kong, Shanghai and Hawaii

to go.

Also on Megan’s bucket list is

going to university.

There’s no point in wrapping

her up. We tell her you have to

go to uni, do what you were going

to do because we don’t know

what’s going to happen,” Mrs

Hore said.

She said Megan has been

struggling having to talk about

her mortality so much at such a

young age.

Road complaints on rise

•From page 1

• By Julia Evans

POTHOLES, LITTER and

sweeping.

The requests to the city council

for these things to be dealt with

have risen more than 20 per cent

in the last year.

City council

chief executive

Karleen

Edwards

revealed in

her executive’s

report

that people

requesting

Karleen

Edwards

services relating

to the state

of the roads

has jumped from 2409 to 2928.

The number of requests for

service related to transport increased

by 22 per cent in the last

year. The three job types were

related to potholes, roadside litter

and sweeping,” Dr Edwards

said.

City councillor Yani Johanson

said it was a “major issue” for the

council.

“It basically ties in to that

whole push towards better maintenance,”

he said.

Cr Johanson said the residents’

BUMPY RIDE: The New Brighton Rd and Bower Ave

roundabout.

survey clearly showed people

in the city were fed up with the

poor state of roads. Only 27 per

cent of respondents said they

were “satisfied” with the condition

of roads and footpaths.

He questioned Dr Edwards

on what the council was doing

in response to that and if it expected

the number to stabilise.

“We’ve been doing some

work around our maintenance

contracts, making sure they’re

responsive and proactive,” Dr

Edwards said.

However, she also said

residents were becoming more

aware about how they can report

potholes, litter and the like, so

naturally the requests would

increase.

“I think some of this is about

increased awareness and increased

ability for people to put

in customer service requests so

we’re likely to continue to see

more of those for a period of

time before they level off.”

Youths abused online

Parents of one of the youths

and the teenage girl were

reluctant to comment when approached

by The Star yesterday.

They said lawyers were involved

over the issue.

The mother of one of the

youths said he had been the

victim of the most “horrendous

and disgusting” abuse.

But the girl involved posted on

Instagram saying: “I’m not here

to try talk my way out of posting

the two videos because I know I

did the wrong thing and posted

something disturbing on social

media.

“I would like to apologise for

not taking any further action on

the situation to try help it, at the

time I was shocked and didn’t

take the time to think about my

consequences.

The cat’s death itself wasn’t

my doing, nor was I even there

as I felt uncomfortable with the

situation and left like the boys

told me to,” said the post.

Mr Helem said the SPCA and

police had received a number

of copies of the video from members

of the public.

Mr Helem said the SPCA had

not yet made contact with the

two youths and teenage girl.

There is a range of penalties

that SPCA can apply through the

court system for cruelty, neglect

or reckless treatment of animals.

These range from an education

conversation or letter, a formal

warning or prosecution in extreme

cases.

“Our processes involve gathering

evidence and information,

talking to witnesses and people

involved then it gets reviewed

and we make a decision from

there,” said Mr Helem.

Dalziel remains off work

MAYOR LIANNE Dalziel

remains off work after suffering a

concussion on Sunday.

Ms Dalziel worked from home

on Wednesday and took Monday

and Tuesday off after she fainted

and hit her head at an event to

mark the 73rd anniversary of the

nuclear bombing of Hiroshima

and Nagasaki in the Botanic

Gardens.

She is being reassessed by her

doctor today before she returns

to work.

‘It’s my duty’ – Holocaust

• By Sophie Cornish

“AFTER everything,

do you still believe in

God?”

“No . . . one million children

were killed. My family

was murdered, how could I

believe in God?”

That was the question

posed by a Rangi Ruru

Girls’ School student

to Holocaust survivor

Vivianne Spiegel following

a talk on her experience

as a young Jew in France

during World War 2.

Mrs Spiegel is sharing

her story across New

Zealand, in what she

believes is “her duty.” She

spoke at six secondary

schools in Christchurch

this week.

Year 10 student

Annabelle Schneideman

found Mrs Spiegel’s real life

experience “shocking” to

listen to.

MEMORIES: The only photographs of Vivianne

Spiegel’s parents, Morsko and Tauba Rigman

who perished in concentration camps during

World War II.

“It makes it so much

more real,” she said.

Mrs Spiegel, who once

found comfort in the

Catholic church after being

introduced by her adoptive

parents, now struggles to

have faith in God.

“When I grew up, I didn’t

believe in God, when I

became a teenager and

certainly when I became an

adult. How could a God allow

this disaster? As I grew

older I became more and

more convinced.”

Her terrifying ordeal

began in 1991, when her

father was arrested and

sent to Pithiviers Internment

camp, and then on to

Auschwitz.

Fire rages, homes at risk

survivor shares her story with Chch schools

She never saw him again.

At the age of six, Mrs Spiegel,

her mother Tauba Rigman, and

two younger siblings, Albert

and Regine, were rounded up

by French police and locked in

a bicycle velodrome, along with

13,000 other Jews.

This became known as the

notorious Vel’ d’Hiv Round-up.

There was no water, food or

toilets. The noise overwhelmed

me. Men were screaming, women

howling and babies crying,” said

Mrs Spiegel.

A sympathetic policeman came

to the aid of Mrs Rigman, and

released the family, in what Mrs

Spiegel describes as a “miracle.”

Most from the round-up were

sent to Auschwitz.

Mrs Rigman then made an

“agonising decision.”

In order to keep her children

safe, she sent them into hiding in

a rural town in the north-west of

France, with two farmers.

“My mother told me don’t

worry, the war will be finished

soon. I was seven-years-old, of

course I believed her.”

That was the last time she ever

saw her mother.

When money stopped coming

from Mrs Rigman, the farmers

sent the children to a Jewish

orphanage.

It wasn’t until almost 40 years

later, when she was 54-years-old,

did Mrs Spiegel find out the fate

of her parents.

Jewish lawyer Serge Klarsfeld

released a book titled Le mémorial

de la déportation des juifs de

France, containing a compilation

of names of French Jews deported

from France.

“I was hoping for a while that

they had managed to get to Russia,

like lots of others did . . . once

the book came out . . . I saw their

names in black and white.”

“Up until then I wasn’t sure what

happened to my parents. I never

gave up hope, I thought they may

have remained alive, I was hoping

but then I read it,” she said.

When she returned to France

in 2010, Mrs Spiegel found out

her mother had been denounced

by her neighbour, who was paid

by the Nazis. Mrs Rigman was

taken away by authorities.

For several years Mrs Spiegel

and her younger siblings lived in

an orphanage before they were

told the “thrilling” news that they

were going to be adopted by a

Jewish couple in Australia.

Following a six week voyage,

the three children arrived in Australia

in 1948. Mrs Spiegel was 13.

Then came the dreadful shock.

We had been bluffed,” she said.

There was no family waiting

for them and they were sent to

another orphanage.

Eventually, the three children

were reluctantly adopted by a

couple, who really only wanted to

adopt the youngest, Regine.

Now at 84, Mrs Spiegel finally

has the family she dreamed of,

with three children and 10

grandchildren.

Her talk at Rangi was “a massive

shock” to the audience, said year

10 student Coco Kennard.

“As a child she must of felt so

helpless. She had no one to turn

NZDF dentists volunteer at Charity Hospital

A collaboration with the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) might seem an unusual relationship but it is

working well for the people of Canterbury. NZDF has a team of dentists and dental assistants who are now

offering their services for free to provide additional dental clinics at the hospital.

“We saw it as a great opportunity for our young dentists to treat more challenging and interesting patients to

give them a greater experience and knowledge for when they are deployed overseas or in other parts of New

Zealand,” said Dr Mark Salter from the NZDF.

NZDF has 18 civilian and uniformed dentists throughout the country.

The Burnham dental team are (left to right)

Private Nadine Nitschke, Lance Corporal Rebekah Salt, Kala

Teale, Captain Joseph Foster and Lieutenant Hao Wu.

NZ Army Band to play at fundraising Gala

Charity Hospital Chief Executive Carl Shaw said that

he was grateful that the New Zealand Defence Force

had offered to help with the dental clinics for WINZ

clients and their involvement meant more people in

need could be seen at the Charity Hospital.

Their dentists also bring their own dental assistants

which works really well.”

Dr Salter said there may be opportunities in the

future for other NZDF dentists to travel to

Christchurch so they can also help out at the Charity

Hospital.

The NZ Army Band is performing at this year’s annual fundraising event – the Charity Hospital Gala on Friday

30 November at the Air Force Museum of New Zealand.

“We are honoured that the NZ Army Band have agreed to support our fundraising event. They will be the

highlight of what is always a fun-filled night out and a great way to celebrate the end of 2018 – and also raise

funds for the Charity Hospital,” said Rosie Graham, Fundraising Co-ordinator at the Charity Hospital.

The NZ Army Band also performed at our event 2015 at Innovation Park and everyone had such a great time.

We are truly delighted to welcome them back – it is such a coup for the hospital to have them there.”

The Charity Hospital Gala is the perfect no-stress solution to the problem of organising and end-of-year

Christmas function for colleagues, clients or friends.

For a limited time a table of 10 costs $1600 (or $160 per guest) for a three course plated dinner, dancing and

an amazing selection of auction items including accommodation, gift baskets and special wines.

Tickets can be purchased on the Charity Hospital website www.charityhospital.org.nz by clicking on the Gala

slider or contact Rosie Graham at rosie@charityhospital.org.nz if you would like to receive an invoice or require

more information.

Hospital clocks up over

15,000 patient visits

The Canterbury Charity Hospital Trust has clocked up

over 15,000 patient visits since opening its doors in

2007.

The hospital has grown over the past 10 years from a

single day surgery unit to a complex of three buildings

housing two theatres with recovery wards, consulting

rooms, two oral surgery clinics, an endoscopy theatre

and education and community meeting rooms.

The hospital’s services are frequently updated

depending on need and currently include

colonoscopy (acute and screening), gynaecology and

women’s health, general surgery (abdominal, rectal),

oral surgery and dentistry, counselling (self-referral),

orthopaedics (upper limb) and cataract surgery.

To be eligible to be seen at the Charity Hospital,

patients must have been turned down by the public

health system and do not have medical insurance nor

the means to pay for their treatment privately. They

also need a referral from their GP or dentist.

Remastered Rembrandts on display

THE WORK of one of the

baroque-style painters is

coming to the city.

But it’s not quite the

Rembrandt.

The Rembrandt Remastered

the Dutch painter’s work,

which have been digitally

The exhibition will be held

from September 5 to October 3

in the Arts Centre’s Great Hall

and will be open seven days a

week.

did when they left Rembrandt’s

studio about 400 years ago.

Curated by Australasia’s

foremost Rembrandt specialist,

Dr Erin Griffey, the head of art

history at Auckland University,

the works – which include

International water course for

The fight is not over

for a flat water facility

in Christchurch. More

than 11,000 people

signed an online

petition in support of

the lake after it was not

included in Regenerate

Christchurch’s shortlist

of projects for the

red zone. Julia Evans

reports on how the

group behind the

planned facility,

East Lake Trust, isn’t

giving up

David

Goodman

CONCEPT: David Goodman’s vision is to see a $160 million

multi-sport lake built out of the Avon River from Kerrs

Reach to Horseshoe Lake.

THE EAST Lake Trust is

fighting to debunk Regenerate

Christchurch’s reasons for

excluding the flat water facility

from the red zone shortlist in a

bid to get it back on the table.

The trust’s vision would see the

$160 million multi-sport lake,

which could host international

events, built out of the Avon

River from Kerrs Reach to

Horseshoe Lake.

Trust chairman David

Goodman made a submission

on the shortlist,

which excludes the lake,

on June 29.

“Regenerate has given

quite specific environmental

and social reasons

for the exclusion of the

East Lake that we can directly

show are incorrect,”

Mr Goodman said.

The submission included independent

reports from transport

consultants Abley, water resource

management consultants

Aqualinc Research, surveyors

Rawlinsons, engineering company

Golder, and landscape

architects Rough and Milne.

It was broken down into categories

addressing Regenerate’s

concerns around water take,

stormwater and the mixing of

water, severing New Brighton

Rd, loss of plant life, ecological

systems and landscape, construction

and truck movements,

as well as the impact on private

property owners. The amount of

water the lake would use was an

issue. But a report from Aqualinc

Research said it would

only use three per cent of

the water available to the

city and be maintained

by a 40-day turnover

cycle.

“While there is a

moderate risk of algal

blooms with a 40-day

turnover, there is in fact

a moderate risk for most

New Zealand lakes,” Mr

Goodman said.

He said the argument about

cultural sensitivity over mixing

water discharged into Horseshoe

Lake was “moot” compared to

the current discharge of sewage

into the area.

“It has been possible to demonstrate

that the required treatment

of 35.6ha could be accommodated

within the land available,”

the Golder report found.

Mr Goodman said excavation

of the site would take 18 months,

not “several years” as has been

claimed.

Transport consultants at Abley

What happens next

•Integrated assessment of

the draft plan. Regenerate

will assess the preliminary

draft Regeneration Plan

against criteria.

•Funding delivery

and responsibilities.

Regenerate has

to align the plan

with Crown and

city council budget

processes, confirming

how much the

recommended

options will cost,

when they could

happen (short, medium or

long-term) and who will

pay for them.

•Draft Regeneration Plan

said the lake would have an

impact on the transport system

around New Brighton Rd.

“But it cannot be considered a

fatal flaw,” Mr Goodman said.

“Although some travel distances

may increase, traffic

redistribution can be

accommodated on the

surrounding roads

without significant

adverse impacts.”

It also said potential

works on New Brighton

Rd for the lake would

cost about $8 million –

but that would be offset

by the $6 million upgrade the

road needs.

There would be 125,000 truck

movements, not 400,000 like

Regenerate claimed, he said.

Mr Goodman said the impact

on neighbouring properties was

not specific to the East Lake

either.

“Presumably there will be a

considerable amount of excavation

required for the creation

of wetlands and/or other green

spine activities and plans.”

The trust has prepared 15

different technical reports over

the past four years, Mr Goodman

said. “We didn’t set out to

do a complete pre-feasibility. It

started in response to objections

and problems. What can we do

to help, it was more a situation

that people would raise issues

and support.”

The total amount to be spent

on the red zone is about $900

million.

“With a cost of $160 million

and benefits of $380

million . . . we will also

draw your attention to the

relatively low OPEX (operating

expense) in running

the facility once it is built,

calculated at $400,000 to

$500,000 per annum,” Mr

Goodman said.

On top of that, he said it was

too soon to exclude any red

zone projects because none were

funded. “All projects, whether it

be the green spine or proposed

wetlands, are at early design

stage,” he said.

Sixty-five per cent of submitters

in Regenerate’s consultation

process supported a lake.

“To resolve the matters in

dispute, we propose the appointment

of an independent engineer

to act as an expert to determine

the correct position in relation

to the disputed technical issues,”

Mr Goodman said.

is completed.

•Public notification of the

draft Regeneration Plan.

•An evaluation panel

will be formed in which

Regenerate will ask

about 50 people

to assess the draft

Regeneration Plan

against the integrated

assessment framework.

•Final draft

Megan Regeneration Plan. The

Woods plan is finalised and

submitted to Otakaro

for consent.

•Decision made by

Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Minister

Megan Woods.

His submission said the

expert’s final determination

would be binding, whatever the

outcome.

There are currently more than

11,100 signatures on the trust’s

online petition. It was also submitted

to Regenerate on June 29

with 10,500 signatures.

It remains online to collect

further support, Mr Goodman

said.

He said the group was also

lobbying for support from city

councillors, Mayor Lianne Dalziel

and Christchurch MPs.

A rally in the central city saw

hundreds of people turn out in

support of the East Lake, including

National MPs Gerry Brownlee

and Nicky Wagner.

Regenerate chief executive

Ivan Iafeta said between May 26

and June 30 feedback was open

on the refined shortlist of land

use combinations in the Ōtākaro

Avon River corridor regeneration

area, which it is now considering.

The community expressed a

range of views. The petition from

the East Lake Trust reflects one

view.” A finalised shortlist will

be provided to Minister for

Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Megan Woods for consideration

after the submissions are

analysed.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Christchurch is a ‘no-brainer’

Christchurch

can be

the sports

capital of

Australasia

within 10

years, says

Star Media

editor in

chief Barry Clarke

THAT’S MY bold prediction

if like-minded people – that

includes those who call the tune

in this city – are on the same

wavelength. But I suspect some

aren’t.

Christchurch will have

a world-class international

stadium, a metro sports facility,

and a modern local multi-sports

complex in Nga Puna Wai.

We have Clearwater and other

international standard golf

courses.

And there’s Riccarton Park

and Addington Raceway – simply

great horse racing venues.

We have a rugby union side

called the Crusaders, which on

and off the field, are a worldclass

professional outfit. It’s an

organisation based around performance,

succession, growth,

standards, planning and very

good people.

We produce world-class coaches

and athletes in many codes.

Our junior rowing teams are

among the best in the country.

They will go on to win medals at

Olympics and world championships

in the years to come. Our

young basketballers are getting

to the United States on scholarships

in increasing numbers.

We have become a nursery for

professional rugby league clubs

across the Tasman.

With a new, and hopefully

covered stadium, will come new

opportunities. A Christchurchbased

NRL franchise is not beyond

possibility. As we saw with

the Manly-Warriors game at

AMI, getting big crowds to NRL

matches isn’t usually a problem

in Christchurch.

These new sports facilities

coming on stream will turn the

wheels of the local economy –

accommodation, hospitality,

tourism, retail, transport . . .

Overseas coaches, players and

sports experts will be able to

train in world-class facilities at

reasonable cost, given our exchange

rate. And also learn from

winning organisations like the

Crusaders.

We have an amazing rebuild

happening in the central city. All

of the benefits that go with that

are starting to come on stream.

The new sports facilities will be

within a relatively short distance

of each other – so no one or twohour

journeys for teams/players/

spectators to get to venues.

But there is one big part of the

jigsaw puzzle missing – an international

standard water course.

Kerrs Reach is currently a joke.

It is plagued by weed beneath the

water and is congested above it

in summer with rowers, canoeists,

dragon boaters and the odd

surf club boat on training runs.

The East Lake Trust’s plan to

turn Kerrs Reach into a proper

water course is a no-brainer.

Regenerate Christchurch and

other ditherers should stop shagging

around and get on with the

job.

Julia Evans spoke to several key players about

what they think of the East Lake plan

East Lake Trust chairman

David Goodman said a flat

water facility would bring

“economic gold” to the city.

“In terms of costing analysis,

Deloitte found on average it

would bring between $20 and

$30 million per annum, forever.

What could that do for the east

and what could that do for New

Brighton?”

Mr Goodman said it would

also bring great social benefit

through all kinds of water sports,

as well as bringing the red zone

to life.

Union Rowing Club president

Dorle Pauli said the club was

very concerned

about overcrowding

at Kerrs Reach.

“Rowing is one of

the fastest growing

sports and

we want for all

Dorle Pauli

rowers to safely

enjoy the sport.

So something

will have to happen.” Ms Pauli

said she thought the lake was

the right way to go to solve that

issue. But she said the Avon and

Kerrs Reach should also be kept

for training.

“Another positive would be

rowing would become more of a

spectator sport for Christchurch.

You don’t get to see it in the city

as it is. And it would become

not just an elite sport for private

schools to excel at.”

Sport Canterbury chief executive

Julyan Falloon said it was

fully supportive of the 2.2km

East Lake. “The scale would

allow us to run

significant sporting

events

. . . in addition to

that, you could

swim in it so it

could be used

Julyan

Falloon

recreationally, as

well as for events

like triathlon,” he

said.

Mr Falloon said part of Sport

Canterbury’s earthquake recovery

plan was lobbying to get

events back to the city.

“Not only will it help regenerate

the city with an economic

benefit, but also a social benefit

for sport.”

When asked if rowing powerhouse

Christ’s College supported

the idea, executive principal

Garth Wynne said: “Yes . . . why

not?”

He said the plan was “bold,

Beautiful Teeth

brave and unique” while having

the potential to bring a wide

range of people to Christchurch

with a purpose.

But Mr Wynne said he would

leave whether it should be in the

red zone or not “to the experts.”

“But do we really need the current

proposals that are more of

the same rather than something

that has the potential to be exciting

and sustaining

and would place

Christchurch as a

city with another

unique feature?”

he said.

“If you build it, they will

ChristchurchNZ, a partially

council-funded tourism body, is

playing its cards close over the

issue.

“ChristchurchNZ has not

seen a detailed economic impact

assessment on the proposed

sports water facility so is unable

to comment,” general manager of

destination and attraction Loren

Heaphy said.

However, she said it welcomes

any new attractions to add to the

fabric of the city for residents

and visitors. “As we explore

new opportunities we need to

ensure that they align with our

long-term vision for the city

and also existing or planned

infrastructure.”

Developer Matthew

Horncastle said the lake would

be a “big positive” for the city.

“Imagine if Christchurch could

host another Commonwealth

Games when the metro sport

facility opens and we had the

East Lake. We could emerge

as the most liveable city in the

world.”

Mr Horncastle, who has

developed properties in the east,

said the city needs to invest in

the east to get people out there.

“We could have the big lake,

on a big beautiful reserve and all

of that business from Twizel. It

would be great.”

Minister for Greater

Christchurch Regeneration

Megan Woods could not give

her opinion of the lake as she

is the minister responsible for

giving the Ōtākaro Avon River

Corridor Regeneration Plan the

rubber stamp.

David Goodman

Passion drives lawyer’s bid to make

For the last four years East Lake Trust

chairman David Goodman has been

leading the campaign to get a flat

water facility built in the red zone. He

talks to Julia Evans about his passion

for the city and for history

How did you get involved in the

trust?

It’s been a good four years

that we’ve been working on it.

Like a lot of people after the

earthquake, you wanted to do

something to help Christchurch.

As a commercial lawyer,

I felt I had some skills to bring.

I was involved in the Christchurch

Business Leaders’ Group,

which formed immediately

after the earthquake to help

businesses in Christchurch. But

I became sort of frustrated with

that, so I gave up. Then I was

out in the east with one of my

sons who was

playing cricket.

I had a chance

to appreciate how much

land was out there and what a

great opportunity it was. That

was one sort of catalyst. Because

of our frustrations, a friend

I just went out and shovelled

liquefaction. I have four boys

and I took them all with me.

I just had a general desire to

help Christchurch, but no

outlet. Greg Urquhart and I

were having a beer, I think

that must have been 2013, he’d

been speaking with Julyan Falloon

chief executive of Sport

Canterbury and mentioned the

idea of a flat water facility near

Kerrs Reach. It hadn’t really got

off the ground. Greg and I had

a look at the idea and thought it

was fantastic. What an amazing

asset for the city it would be.

Greg and I formed the trust

after that. I think the important

point is that it’s not just a

rowing lake. There will be

rowing events on it and will

include waka ama, dragon

boating, kayaking and

canoeing. The events and

regattas will be economic

gold.

It must have been a

busy few years for you

then?

The difficulty is, as

a commercial lawyer,

I’ve discovered that

it can become an allencompassing

passion.

Just this week I’ve

had meetings with

Canterbury Employers’

Chamber of Commerce,

various experts and made a

presentation to the zone committee.

I would say I do maybe

an hour or two of work on top

of everything else. Ten hours a

week, sometimes that can be up

to 20 or 30 hours a month and

you always find there’s something

more to do. Yes, it’s been

a real battle and we’re having to

fight tooth and nail all the way,

but you’re happy to do it because

the trust can see the potential

benefits for Christchurch.

Have you been a rower

yourself?

I rowed as a schoolboy years

ago, but that is just not the

reason I do it at all. I have a great

passion for this project because

I can visualise the lake itself and

see what it can do for the city.

Not everyone is going to agree

with you, but you can see the

opportunity, which is enough to

keep going.

You mentioned you have four

sons, can you tell me a little bit

about your family?

Yes, I have four sons. My eldest

son Tom is studying logistics at

Lincoln University. Then there’s

Tim who is studying his first

year of law at Otago. James is

in year 12 and my youngest son

George is in year 10. My wife

Bridget is a charge nurse and I’m

a full-time partner at Anderson

Lloyd.

Fire rages, homes at risk

flat water lake project a reality

With both of us working fulltime

and a very busy family, it’s a

juggle. But all four sons and my

wife were at the rally a few weeks

ago, so the family is right there

behind me. The trust strongly

believes that the red zone needs

a heart and something that will

generate activity. In the Regenerate

survey, most people said they

wanted a red zone that they can

participate in. While walking

and cycle tracks, are nice, it’s also

important to create activity and

economic benefit, as well as draw

people in. The lake will be consistent

with the proposed green

spine, which the trust supports

and won’t detract from it in any

way.

What does a day off look like?

A day off for me always starts off

with watching children’s sport. I

love getting out to watch my boys

playing rugby. In the afternoon I’ll

either go for a jog around the park

and then I’ll come home and read

a book and switch-off. I like military

history. So any novels with a

little bit of a history bent, I enjoy.

I’m particularly interested in Roman

history as well. There are a

number of authors who specialise

in historical fiction, like Bernard

Cornwell and Conn Iggulden. It’s

having a bit of quiet time.

How did you get involved in

the legal profession?

My father was a lawyer with

a firm originally in Timaru and

Palmerston North. It must be

in the blood, my great-great

grandfather Arthur Rhodes,

who was actually the Mayor of

Christchurch for a while, founded

Rhodes & Co. He actually had

a very strong connection with

the east and had a lot of land

out there. I think those sort of

little historic things are just a

happy coincidence. But you do

sometimes wonder if there’s a

connection or calling to that area.

Then again, you don’t read into it

too much.

Did you study law in

Christchurch?

I studied at Otago first and

then did my Masters in company

and commercial law at the University

of London for a couple of

years. I travelled around Europe

and Africa for a while. I even

got to visit Gallipoli, which was

particularly special. I returned

to New Zealand in June of 1993

and started at Lane Neave. I

also worked in London when I

was over there, then came back

to Christchurch where I was

a partner in a couple of firms

before I joined Anderson Lloyd. I

ultimately ended up in Christchurch

because it has always been

my city. After school in Dunedin,

then London, it felt like it was

time to come home. When you’re

young you spend a lot of time

running away from home before

you end up appreciating it and

becoming passionate for the city.

Having been the young man living

in other cities, you find that

Christchurch is a great place to

have a family, settle down in and

look to the future.

All Right?

Canterbury men are being asked to ditch the stereotypes

and just be themselves, as part of the All Right? Manly As

campaign this month. Brendon Kingi explains

I DON’T really consider myself being

that masculine. One way I consider

myself masculine is being a good dad,

hopefully, being a good dad. That to

me is probably the most male thing

that I can hope for.

I have quite a bit to

do with netball – coach,

play, umpire. My daughters

are pretty hard out

into it as well, so that

keeps me into it. I had

friends that were playing,

a mixed team and they

needed somebody else

to play to fill their team.

I loved it straight away.

I have been playing it

since I was 18 and now I

am 41.

I coach, umpire and ref for girls’

teams. I think the parents like the

idea of having a male coach sometimes,

because they are different. I

feel like I don’t have to be as aggressive

as some of the women are. I can

be a dude playing netball and they

see me as a coach figure anyway. The

women have to assert themselves, I

don’t have to do that as much. There

is so much drama on the sidelines

that our coaches have to deal with,

parents coming up to them and arguing

with them, that sort of stuff. I

never get that, I think because of the

way I look.

Having daughters, I don’t want my

girls to be worried about stereotypes.

It’s less about what guys need to do

to change, and more that I want my

girls’ ideas to change about what they

can do.

The main thing I would

like to see changed about

stereotypes of men, is

that you have to be an alpha

male in order to be a

man sort of thing. I don’t

see myself as an alpha

male at all, I don’t really

want to be an alpha male.

I would like to live in a

world where there are no

alpha males and women

can do everything that

men can do and not be

held back because they are females.

No, I don’t try to live up to a

stereotype. I don’t try and be what

other people expect me to be. I have

always been quite a big guy anyway,

so people tend not to try and bug me

about it.

I am obviously a dude. It comes

back to the whole thing where people

obviously see me as one way, I don’t

try and persuade them either way,

that’s just how I am. I don’t know,

people see me as a sort of macho

dude, okay call me a macho dude. I

don’t care, that’s just how it is for

me.

WE’VE ALL heard the

expressions – ‘harden up,’ ‘get

over it,’ ‘man up.’

While often said in jest or

as a bit of banter amongst

mates, the reality is the view

that ‘to “be a man” you need

to suppress how you feel,’ can

be incredibly damaging.

The latest All Right?

campaign directly challenges

some of the traditional Kiwi

bloke stereotypes. It encourages

men to just be themselves

– that’s Manly As.

We’re not saying that it’s

bad to be a strong, silent type.

What we’re saying is that if

this isn’t you, then that’s all

right. You don’t need to fit

into the mould. The modern

man doesn’t need to look,

sound or behave according

to those old stereotypes of

manliness.

The time has come to

change what we think ‘being

a man’ really is.

It’s time to move beyond

those narrow stereotypes

of the past, and look to the

future of manliness.

It’s time to celebrate traits

like being a great mate, who

you can talk to when things

aren’t going as well.

It’s time to say ‘yes’ to

things that we want to do but

we’re prevented from doing

because we’re worried if we’d

been seen as weak or different.

It’s time to acknowledge

that we have feelings and

emotions.

And it’s time to put as

much focus on growing

mental fitness as we do to our

physical fitness.

You don’t need abs of steel,

an obsession with sport, or a

fancy man cave to be a real

man. Being yourself is manly

as.

Opinion

Politics

Nicky Wagner

Widen access to medicinal cannabis

THERE IS consensus around

the need for access to medicinal

cannabis products to ease

suffering experienced by people

with chronic pain.

And while the goal of

providing these products is

widely accepted, there is a strong

debate around how we deliver

it. National is determined to be

a constructive opposition that

works on new ideas for issues

such as this.

Over the last couple of months,

my colleague Dr Shane Reti

has been working on ways to

provide medicinal cannabis in

New Zealand. His work looked

at international best practice

for delivering a comprehensive

regime to manage medical

cannabis use.

And that work has led to

National’s proposed Member’s

Bill. This Bill would widen

access to medicinal cannabis

for those that really need it, and

who medical professionals agree

will benefit from it. It will treat

medicinal cannabis the same

as any other medicine. It would

only allow dispensing through

pharmacies to certified users and

would prevent marketing to the

public.

THe Bill only allows domestic

manufacturing under strict

licensing conditions with

quality standards just like any

other medicine. It does not

allow personal cultivation,

dispensing of loose leaf cannabis

or the personal use of loose leaf

cannabis.

Of course, the Government

has its own Bill to change

how we treat medicinal

cannabis. It includes only

minor improvements to how

cannabidiol products are treated,

which the previous National

Government had already

facilitated. It only applies to the

terminally ill.

Dr Reti’s work and the Bill

he has submitted provide a

solid, practical framework for

delivering medicinal cannabis.

Now the Government must

show leadership and adopt this

excellent piece of legislation to

deliver relief to those who need it.

Garrick Tremain is one of New Zealand’s most respected

and talked about cartoonists. And from today, he will be

appearing regularly in The Star. He has been a long-time

cartoonist for the Otago Daily Times. Tremain, who lives

in Queenstown, is also a well-known painter.

Thursday August 9 2018 21

Readers respond to

sports reporter Gordon

Findlater’s opinion

piece last week on how

the highly anticipated

Crusaders-Hurricances

Super Rugby semi-final

failed to fill AMI Stadium

The stadium was filled though

(19,500) for Saturday night’s

final against the Lions

Daniel Rawiri – There’s only

two real reasons – the cost and

the weather. It costs an arm and

a leg to go there and sit in the

rain/cold drinking expensive

beer and eating overpriced tacky

food. Why, when you can stay

nice and snug at home watching

on TV, eating a home cooked

meal while drinking a $20 12-

pack from Countdown. Solution

– reasonable prices and a roofed

stadium equals a sellout crowd.

Kim Brown – There is a lot

more people need to spend their

money on than go to a rugby

event for example, housing, food,

power and warm clothing. Not

everyone has spare money left

over to attend a match, at the end

of the day they need to put those

needs first.

Daniel Mazey – Well a roof

is one factor but that’s a while

away the way they are going. The

main thing for me would be even

the seats in the covered stands

have absolutely no room to move

in front of them, like the old

flip-down theatre seats. I was at

a game and at halftime thought

oh good people are standing up

to get food etc, but they were just

standing up for the hell of it, so

I had to go up about four rows

to get out. Guess I’ll be

about 70 by the time

we get a noteworthy

stadium.

LeRulz Fran – Maybe

a lot of us aren’t that

interested in watching

rugby. If I have spare

money, I’m going to the movies.

Tony Coles – The first thing

Christchurch should have got

was a covered stadium, not feelgood

art work. Eight years on

and the stadium is still not even

designed. EQC and the insurance

companies have beaten the

life out of Christchurch.

Sandra Odgers – Cost of

a seat is way out of my range.

Lower the price and fill the

stadium.

Tony Simpson

– Seems to me rather

odd that Christchurch

is crying out

for a large, expensive

covered stadium

when they cannot fill

a smaller one anyway.

Bridget Compton-Moen

– I strongly disagree with the

Englishmen. The atmosphere

was incredible, the whole thing

was a blast. Even the streaker

played his part. We all know

exactly why we are not filling

it! It has nothing to do with the

ATTENDANCE:

Christchurch

residents

have their

say on why

AMI Stadium

looked empty

this year

leading into

the Crusader’s

ninth Super

Rugby title as

opposed to

how it was in

other years.

format . . . that’s over thinking it.

Erina Parks – Five home

games in a row? What do they

expect? Families only have so

much money. Crusaders is not

just Christchurch you know –

Nelson, Marlborough, Buller,

West Coast, Canterbury, Mid

Canterbury and South Canterbury

all make up the Crusaders.

They could share it around a bit

more. Nelson’s Trafalgar Park

seats about the same number,

18,000 and the temporary seating

for the All Blacks match has

been up for a month or more.

So we could have easily filled a

21,000-seat stadium. Come on

Crusaders bosses, share the love

around your contributing areas.

Helen Milligan – Used to go

all the time, even went to the last

final in 2008. Sorry, just don’t

like this stadium, hurry up and

build a proper one.

Sandy Kennedy - The seats

in the south stand are tiny . . . we

have to sit sideways and we aren’t

large people.

Amanda Holden – It’s not

a stadium, it’s ricketey old scaffolding.

Cam Gallie – Not overly

keen on $60-plus for tickets.

Karamea Kaz - Simple –

put a roof on it, reduce the price

of tickets and make the seats

bigger.

Don Gould – The marketing

is poor and that is being kind.

As the article writer points

out, community engagement

is equally poor. The English

guys are right, the passion is

missing. The problem is that

most of us have no idea who

these Crusader people even are.

We don’t follow the game and we

don’t care. And that is simply a

consequence of poor marketing

and community engagement.

The people promoting this event

on Facebook couldn’t even be

bothered to include a proper

URL to the ticket booking

website so that when you click

the link it actually takes you to

a page where you can make a

booking.

GREAT food

BROUGHT TO YOU BY...

Your fresh food people

KUMARA AND PUMPKIN

FRITTERS (GLUTEN FREE,

VEGAN)

Ingredients

2 orange kumara, about two

cups chopped into 1cm cubes

1/4 cup pumpkin

3 Tbsp coconut cream taken

from the top of full-fat coconut

milk

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1/8 tsp ground cardamom

1/8 tsp ground ginger

1/4 cup coconut flour

1 Tbsp coconut or avocado oil

Salt to taste

Directions

Scrub the kumara, slice them

lengthwise and then roast or

steam them with pumpkin

on the stove until they’re soft.

Let them cool and then scoop

the flesh out into a bowl and

discard the skin.

Place the steamed kumara,

pumpkin, coconut cream and

spices in a large glass bowl and

mix until combined. Gradually

add the coconut flour to the

mixture. It should be getting

thick. Form small patties with

your hand. If the patties won’t

stay together, add more flour.

In a large skillet, warm the

coconut or avocado oil over

medium heat. Once warm,

add the kumara and pumpkin

fritters and top with salt. Don’t

crowd the pan. You want room

to flip the fritters. Work in

batches. Cook 5-10minu each

side, or until golden brown.

Once both sides are crisp,

remove from pan.

Top with lime cream or mix

a little fresh lime juice with

coconut yogurt.

Gardening

Hanging baskets –

spring into them now

• By Henri Ham

ARE YOU keen to get

going on your spring

planting but know its

slightly too early to do so?

How about sorting out

some hanging baskets that

will erupt in flowers before

you’ve even planted your

first tomatoes.

Hanging baskets are a

great way to liven up any

area, whether it’s a large or

small space. Suspend them

in entrance ways, under

verandas, decks and patios.

And what’s really great

about baskets is they are super

easy to assemble. Grab

a basket, many come with

a fitted coconut liner but

if not get some sphagnum

moss to line it with.

Baskets come in wide

wire frames, more compact

versions of wicker style or

solid conical shapes. Whatever

you choose I recommend

getting a basket/s

at least approx 30cm in

diameter.

Solid baskets have the

benefit of not drying out

as quickly. But they don’t

allow for you to cascade

plants around the sides and

base of the basket. Wire

ones have a real cottage

garden feel.

Coconut liners are solid

and ideal for wire baskets

with bigger gaps. Using

sphagnum moss wouldn’t

work on a wire basket as the

moss would fall through the

gaps.

Some baskets come with

a self-watering reservoir

which might save you

watering for a few days in

summer. I like to place an

old saucer at the bottom of

the basket which acts as a

water catcher and helps the

basket to retain its moisture.

When assembling your

EASY: Once established hanging baskets require

little maintenance other than watering.

basket, first soak the liner

in a bucket of water for five

minutes to really help its

hydration. Line your basket

with the coconut or moss

liner. Then fill it almost to

the top with lightweight

potting soil mix and compost.

An easy trick here is to

balance your round basket

on an old bucket so it stays

flat while you are assembling

it.

If you want to get fancy

try mixing in some water

gel crystals. They retain water

in the summer months

and help if you miss a day

or two of watering.

And now for your plants.

Choose a vibrant hanging

basket mix which features

a range of suitable, seasonal

flowers. Try adding

plants in the middle that

pack a bit of height. Dwarf

antirrhinum (also known

as dwarf snapdragons) are

perfect for this. Or looking

for something a bit

more practical and close to

kitchen? Add some parsley

or basil in the middle and

keep your cascading flowers

on the edges.

Once established hanging

baskets require little

maintenance other than

regular watering – especially

during the hot summer

months. But right now they

won’t need a lot of water.

So, stop waiting for

spring to arrive to get back

out into your gardens.

Spring to it now and plant

some baskets.

Trailblazer the way

to get to ski fields

I FIND it interesting that

Holden on both sides of

the Tasman has changed

the name of its popular

seven-seat Colorado7 to

Trailblazer.

It’s almost as if the

company has tried to

distance the big sport utility

vehicle from the car it is

based on – the Colorado

ute – and I find that a bit of

a surprise. The Colorado

is one of the top-selling

utes in New Zealand, and

the Colorado7 was an

extension of that series, it

is a vehicle which will do

all the things the ute would

bar having deck space.

Nevertheless, it is now

named Trailblazer and

it arrives here in two

variations, LT (special

order only) and LTZ as in

the test car’s case. However,

mention must be made of a

limited edition Z71 model

which is dressed up with

big black wheels and special

decals.

In LTZ form the

Trailblazer comes well

specced for comfort

and convenience, and

at $62,990 it is priced

favourably against its

nearest opposition – say

Mitsubishi’s Pajero Sport,

Toyota’s Fortuner and

Ford’s Everest.

For its money, the

Trailblazer gets full leather

trim with heated front

seats (also electrically

adjustable), MyLink voice

recognition infotainment

system, digitally controlled

air conditioning and cruise

control. For safety there’s

the mandatory gear to earn

it a five-star Australasian

New Car Assessment

Program safety rating.

The Trailblazer is

powered by General

Motors’ 2.8-litre, fourcylinder

turbocharged

diesel engine, the same

as that which sits in the

Colorado ute range. It is

rated at 147kW with a

grunty 500Nm of torque,

the latter realised at just

2000rpm,meaning there

is a lot of specific power

which, in turn, relates to

respectable performance.

Part of the latter is

due to the engine’s

pairing with a six-speed

automatic gearbox which

has close ratios so that

the gaps between gears

aren’t excessive. The

combination works fluidly

together, and the ratios

are also structured so that

acceleration is useful along

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

HOLDEN TRAILBLAZER: Genuine cross-country

vehicle.

with relaxed highway

operation and associated

fuel usage benefits.

The twin-camshaft,

16-valve engine has

a 9.2-litre per 100km

(31mpg) combined cycle

claim. That’s achievable,

even considering the

Trailblazer weighs in well

over two-tonne, the trip

computer was still listing at

around 10l/100km (28mpg)

during my testing time. At

100km/h the engine turns

over at a leisurely 1600rpm,

using fuel at the rate of just

7.3l/100km (39mpg).

• Price – Holden

Trailblazer LTZ,

$62,990

• Dimensions – Length,

5347mm; width,

1882mm; height,

1780mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder, fourwheel-drive,

2776cc,

147kW, 500Nm, sixspeed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 10sec

• Fuel usage –

9.2l/100km

These are respectable

figures, and if you take into

account it will accelerate

to 100km/h from a standstill

in around 10sec, it has

the benefit of power and

economy.

I took the test car on my

usual inland route. Given

the Trailblazer has a serious

four-wheel-drive system

and suspension engineered

for life in the rough stuff, I

included a short undulating

track near the Coalgate.

The evaluation car was a

local dealer demonstrator

so I didn’t want to get it

overly dirty, and the dry,

well-packed clay surface

didn’t provide a grip

challenge; however, I can

report the Trailblazer can be

considered a genuine crosscountry

vehicle because of

its low ratio transfer case,

organised by a dial switch

near the auto shifter.

The suspension is up to

task. It has a combination

of long travel up front with

the firming and control

through the springs and

dampers to absorb the big

hits from off-road surfaces.

This taking into account

the rear suspension of the

Trailblazer utilises much the

same load-bearing, live axle

set-up that is used in the ute,

although the SUV gets coils

as opposed to leaf springs.

On the seal the Trailblazer

cruises smoothly,

providing the driver with

solid information as to how

it is travelling in relation to

the road surface.

At almost 1.8m, the

Trailblazer is tall, which

means there is some body

movement over the suspension,

but it deals with the

gravitational change with

lurching, or disturbing incabin

comfort.

The Trailblazer’s sevenseat

platform is fairly traditional,

the rear row of seats

fold up out of the floor

and provide satisfactory

comfort. The cabin proper

is well up to catering for

five adults, and if the rear

seats are folded flat the load

space is cavernous.

Even though its name

has changed, not a lot

has changed within the

Trailblazer, it is an SUV

with a difference to the

majority of seven-seaters

which ply our market.

Given the popularity of

the ute market sales of the

Trailblazer – and others –

benefit from that success.

It’s a serious vehicle for

the high country fishing

trip or summer camping

holiday. At this time of year

it is the perfect vehicle for

the ski field access road,

and with the pricing structure

it is a vehicle which deserves

consideration if you

need a four-wheel-drive

with high off-the-beatentrack

capability.

Selwyn House School -

small class sizes and talented

teaching staff

For primary school, every parent wants

to ensure their child is receiving the best

foundation for their academic future.

Selwyn House School has small class sizes

and a talented teaching staff set within a

nurturing environment and an extensive

range of opportunities.

Selwyn House offers the International

Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years

Programme (PYP) and is proud to be

a leading STEAM focused school. We

not only encourage our girls to work in

advanced STEAM fields, we want our

girls to lead them. Our STEAM Hub

provides every student from Year 1 to

8 access to state-of-the-art equipment.

In Mechatronics, girls learn the

foundations of mechanical and electrical

knowledge. Robotics is introduced as an

interdisciplinary, project-based learning

activity drawing mostly on mathematics,

science and technology. Learning is also

enhanced by additional opportunities

including the 2018 Space Camp trip where

18 girls will travel to the United States to

attend a week-long Space Camp.

A supportive all-girl learning

environment encourages girls to take

risks without fear of failure. As the girls

progress they are confident in their

abilities, understanding that perseverance

helps them grow. A school-wide buddy

programme provides each girl with

support and mentoring.

Learning is personalised and each

teacher has the time to foster authentic

and meaningful relationships. Strong

relationships between the class teacher and

family ensure each girl’s learning journey

is nurtured by a partnership of support.

Teachers construct learning activities

to help each girl identify their personal

strengths.

Selwyn House believes these strengths

can be applied to academic tasks

and become more powerful with the

acquisition of skills and knowledge, aiding

intellectual development and academic

achievement. For this reason core learning

in reading, writing and mathematics is

a priority. Specialist teachers in Spanish,

Mechatronics, Art, Science, Physical

Education, Swimming, Performing Arts

and Music work with classroom teachers

to help identify the strengths of every girl.

The environment at Selwyn House

empowers each girl to embrace their future

and develop a love of learning. A Selwyn

House girl will learn to define herself,

accept responsibility, form opinions,

and have compassion for the world. This

combination of achievement, confidence,

and character makes a Selwyn House

education a powerful and transformative

experience.

Woodward Cup milestone

• By Gordon Findlater

JASON SINCOCK became the

most capped Woodward Cup

player in history on Sunday

and celebrated the occasion by

beating James Robb.

Sincock’s 3/2 victory helped

Christchurch to a win over Templeton

in the top-of-the-table

clash. The match was his 234th,

surpassing his friend and former

teammate Murray Brown’s

record for the most Woodward

Cup appearances.

The 50-year-old made his

Woodward Cup debut in 1985

and has since amassed a record

of 123 wins and 24 halves.

Sincock has won four Woodward

Cups. First was with

Waitikiri in 1987. He also won

three times with North Canterbury

in 1992, 2005 and 2007.

His most memorable day

came during his early days

in the competition when he

knocked over a Canterbury and

a New Zealand representative.

“I played Brent Paterson and

Mark Street in the same day

and beat them both. They were

the stars for Canterbury at the

time.”

Sincock’s Woodward Cup

career began with Avondale

where he went undefeated for

two years.

He then joined Waitikiri in

1987 where we played one year

with Canterbury’s top juniors

who had joined the club due to

Peter Davis coaching there at

the time.

His longest spell was with

CAMPAIGNER: Jason Sincock,

has become the most capped

player in the Woodward Cup.

North Canterbury from 1988

until 2007 when they were

disbanded from the competition.

He then played for Kaiapoi before

Before entering his mid-30s it

was common for Sincock to mix

rugby or cricket on a Saturday

with interclub golf on Sunday.

“I missed quite a few games

because I got injured at rugby on

Saturday. That was in the days of

no cell phones so it was hard to

communicate with people. One

time I was in hospital and no

one could get hold of me,” said

Sincock.

“We had North Canterbury

interclub at Kaikoura. I had

played rugby in Amberley and

I was going to get picked up for

golf at the Amberley pub, but I

wasn’t there. I’d been taken to

hospital because I ruptured my

anterior cruciate ligament.”

Sincock lives and breathes

golf, frequently working as a

greenkeeper since the 1980s.

He completed an apprenticeship

at Avondale before working

at Bottle Lake in the 1990s.

After six years in Ireland and

time away from the golf course

Sincock returned to greenkeeping

at Coringa before joining

Christchurch.

He doesn’t plan on stepping

down from the premier

interclub competition anytime

soon and is in with a good shout

of winning a fifth title. After

five rounds of the competition

Christchurch are in first on 10

points, ahead of Pegasus and

Templeton both on eight.

Tech on verge of history

• By Gordon Findlater

CASHMERE Technical are on

the verge of creating history.

If the club can win their final

six matches, they will complete

a rare quadruple, winning all

four major competitions they

can compete in.

On Saturday, Tech defeated

Manukau United to reach the

semi-final of the Chatham Cup.

Earlier this season, Tech won

the Mainland Premier League

and a win in their top-of-thetable

Southern League clash

against Nomads United on

Saturday will all but cement the

title. They have also qualified

for the final of the English Cup.

Tech have drawn a home

semi-final in the Chatham Cup

against Porirua’s Western Suburbs

which defeated defending

champions Onehunga Sports at

the weekend.

“You don’t want to jinx it but

we’ve certainly talked about it

and we’ve embraced it. Look,

we’ve got an extremely rare

opportunity with getting so

far and being so close in everything

we’ve competed in,” said

Tech coach Dean Hutchinson.

When the tail-end of the

Chatham Cup comes around

WATCHING HIS teammates

win the Crusaders’ ninth Super

Rugby title on Saturday wasn’t

the only reason Israel Dagg was

celebrating last week.

On Friday night at

Addington Raceway, the Mark

Jones-trained 3yo pacer, Izzy

Dagg, claimed its first win. The

horse is part-owned by

its namesake and his wife

Daisy.

Izzy Dagg isn’t the first horse

their North Island counterparts.

However, that wasn’t the

case for Tech at the weekend.

named after an All Black that

Jones has worked with, having

also trained Saveapatrol (Julian

Savea) and Zacspatrol (Zac

Guildford).

The latest of Jones’ horses to

take an All Blacks influenced

name is Barrett.

“We always ask them if it’s

okay to name it after them,”

said Jones.

The good thing with

Barrett is there’s three to pick

from so we can name it after

anyone.”

Hutchinson praised his team’s

performance, which he says

came with mental toughness,

resilience and even a touch of

Having struck up a

friendship with Dagg in recent

years, the pair had talked about

finding the right horse to take

Dagg’s name.

“I’ve waited for the right

horse to name after him. We

thought if it was a good enough

to have that name, it should be

good enough for him to take a

share in it,” said Jones.

“He always showed a bit of

talent early on, so we knew he’d

be good enough to at least win

a few races.”

arrogance at times. “It was a

competitive game. It was probably

a bit feisty at times and we

did not take a backward step.

That was probably the thing

that pleased me the most.”

Hutchinson believes another

contributor to their success has

been the buy-in from the club’s

senior players, many of whom

were part of their Chatham

Cup successes in 2013 and

2014.

Hutchinson heaped praise

on the likes of Tom and Dan

Schwarz, Aaron Clapham, Dan

Terris and Gary Ogilvie who

bring a wealth of experience

and knowledge of each others

games.

“Tom and Dan are twins so

you can’t get much closer than

that.”

Tech’s top of the table Southern

League match against Nomads

United kicks off at Tulett

Park at 2.30pm on Saturday.

Dagg’s namesake gets first win on track

Driven by Sam Ottley, the

colt showed he has a future

with a long, sustained run from

last in the field at the 800m

mark to win the 2000m race on

Friday.

With Izzy Dagg showing

talent and his namesake

entering the later years of his

rugby career, who knows,

maybe one day the pair could

team up for victory.

“He [Dagg] pops out and has

the odd drive on a horse when

he gets the chance.”

in brief

Western, Halswell eye

up chance at football

league promotion

Western AFC and Halswell United

will meet in a crucial top-of-thetable

football clash at Walter Park

on Saturday. The match will play

major role in which club will be

promoted to the Mainland Premier

League. Western and Halswell are

both on 38 competition points

with just two games remaining.

A win for either side will leave

their promotion hopes in their

own hands. Western currently

have a better goal differential than

Halswell.

St Andrew’s beat TBHS

to lift hockey shield

St Andrew’s College had help from

a former Timaru student when they

took hockey’s Connetics Challenge

Shield from Timaru Boys’ High

School last week. Former Timaru

primary and intermediate hockey

star, Harrison Darling, scored the

lone goal of the game with 2min

to play. The win also helped St

Andrew’s earn a semi-final spot in

the Canterbury secondary school

competition.

Canty hockey players

make NZ under-21 team

Three Canterbury players have

made the New Zealand under-21

men’s hockey team to compete at

the Sultan of Johor Cup in Malaysia

in October. Strikers Sam Lane

and Moss Jackson and goalkeeper

Louis Beckert have been named

in the 12-strong squad, while

fellow Cantabrian, midfielder

Gus Wakeling, is one of two nontravelling

reserves.

Williams off to world

uni squash champs

Former Christchurch Boys’ High

School squash player Joe Williams

has received a national call-up.

The 22-year-old will represent

New Zealand for the first time

at the world university squash

championships in Birmingham,

England, next month.

Put Razor’s hat in the ring for All Blacks coach

One-eyed Cantab

Gordon Findlater

gordon.findlater@starmedia.kiwi

SCOTT ROBERTSON is

being talked about as a strong

candidate to be the All Blacks

next coach – and there’s every

reason he should succeed Steve

Hansen.

If we want our favourite man

in red and black take the helm

of the team in the black jersey,

there’s a few things we need

New Zealand Rugby to not overthink.

Firstly, let’s hope it hasn’t

become obsessed with the idea

that international experience is

required before taking on the

country’s top coaching job.

In many conversations, as soon

as Robertson and the All Blacks

coaching job are mentioned,

it’s quickly noted that he would

need to coach internationally in

the Northern Hemisphere before

being a shoe-in for the top gig.

Yes, our last two Rugby World

Cup victories have come under

the guidance of men who gained

valuable international level experience

with Wales after successful

stints at provincial and Super

Rugby level. But it shouldn’t be a

necessity.

New Zealand Rugby should be

reassuring Robertson that he can

continue with his resurgence of

the Crusaders and make them

an untouchable force of Super

Rugby, knowing that when Steve

Hansen likely pulls the plug after

next year’s Rugby World Cup

his hat will be in the ring to take

over.

Outside of the likes of Dave

Rennie, Joe Schmidt and Wayne

Pivac, who are coaching in

Europe, the logical name thrown

around to succeed Hansen is All

Blacks assistant Ian Foster.

While Foster appears the

safe choice so was Tabai

Matson when Todd Blackadder

announced his exit from the

Crusaders in 2016.

At the time, I believed Matson

was the logical choice and have

quickly – and much to my

delight – been proven wrong.

Some doubted whether

Robertson could translate his

success at provincial level to

Super Rugby level.

But he did so immediately

and proved that installing his

Canterbury culture into the

Crusaders set-up was a recipe

destined for success.

There’s no reason he

couldn’t do the same with the

All Blacks.

Let’s hope New Zealand

Rugby has the same logic that

Crusaders boss Hamish Riach

had in 2016 and goes for a punt.

Who doesn’t want to see Razor

breakdancing at the 2023 Rugby

World Cup in France?

CHRIST’S College have

played their part in setting

up an opportunity for

Rangiora High School to

qualify for the semi-finals

of the UC Championship

for the first time in history.

Yesterday, Christ’s

defeated Nelson College

37-7 at Upper. The result

means Rangiora are now

one point clear of Nelson

in fourth spot with one

round remaining. A bonus

point win over Aoraki

Combined in Timaru on

Saturday will now confirm

a top four spot.

A week ago, the idea

would have seemed beyond

a long shot to even the hardiest

Rangiora fans. At the

weekend, they created history

by defeating Christchurch

Boys’ High School

35-33. It was the first time

the school’s first XV had

defeated CBHS. The victory

meant Rangiora also

secured the Trust Bank

Trophy – a prestigious cup

contested between South

Island secondary school

first XV rugby teams.

THE Christchurchbased

great nephew of

legendary New Zealand

land speed racer Burt

Munro will attempt to

break the magical 200mph

(321km/h) barrier at the

Utah Salt Flats this month.

Backed by a crack

engineering team from

the United States first

motorcycle company,

Indian Motorcycle, Lee

Munro is hoping to eclipse

his own previous official

speed of 191.286mph

(307.844km/h) on a newlymodified

Indian Scout,

dubbed ‘Spirit of Munro’.

In 2005, Burt Munro’s

legacy was immortalised

with the making of the

popular film The World’s

Fastest Indian, starring Sir

Anthony Hopkins.

He inspired his great

nephew to follow in his

speedy footsteps, and last

year Lee Munro celebrated

the 50th anniversary of

his great uncle’s historic

under-1000cc world record

UPSET: Rangiora celebrate a historic 35-33 win

over CBHS to claim the Trust Bank Trophy.

“We believed we were

capable,” said Rangiora

coach Glen Dunseath.

“We would love to play

top four rugby and want

to prove you don’t need a

big rugby programme to

compete there.”

A number of Rangiora

players made the trip to

Upper to see Christ’s win

which has put their fate in

their own hands.

The results also mean

Christ’s now have a chance

to qualify for the UC

on his 1920 Scout Streamliner

with a commemorative

run at Bonneville

Speed Week.

Lee Munro’s

record-breaking

run of 186.681mph

(300.433km/h) at El

Mirage, Southern

California, and official

run of 191.286mph

(307.844km/h) at last

year’s Speed Week has him

motivated to break into the

exclusive 200mph club at

the 70th annual Bonneville

Speed Week later this

month.

“My great uncle Burt is a

significant inspiration for

my own motorcycle racing

career, and his appetite for

speed is clearly a part of

my DNA,” said Lee Munro.

“Partnered with the

exceptional team at Indian

Motorcycle, I know we can

make our dreams of hitting

200mph a reality.”

Speed Week will start

on Saturday at Bonneville,

Utah. It finishes next

Streamliner which will run

class.

He’s been helped by millionaire

Garry Robertson

and his Ocean Ridge

Kaikoura New Zealand

company.

Robertson collects classic

cars and motorcycles and

has long been inspired by

the Munro story.

Gary Gray, vice president

for racing, technology and

service at Indian Motorcycle,

said it was honoured to

partner the Munro family

last year and pay tribute

to Munro’s “incredible accomplishments”

and 1967

land-speed record.

“We’re eager to be back

on the salt flats with Lee

and the ‘Spirit of Munro’,”

he said.

one option would be to move

Knights looking to break Mt Smart hoodoo

THE NEWCASTLE Knights

will be relying on their battlehardened

veterans to help shatter

the club’s long-standing hoodoo

at Mt Smart Stadium.

The Knights will tackle the

Warriors tomorrow but have

won only once in their past 12

visits to Mt Smart and not since

2012, The Newcastle Herald

reported.

No other team has endured

such a cursed run in New Zealand

for such an extended period.

During their golden years

of the late 1990s and early 2000s,

Newcastle enjoyed a dominant

record in New Zealand, notching

seven wins and a draw from the

first nine clashes on the Warriors

home turf.

But Mt Smart has become a

veritable graveyard for Newcastle

teams since the retirement of

champion Andrew Johns more

than a decade ago.

Knights coach Nathan Brown

is banking on the hired guns he

has signed from premiershipwinning

clubs – Mitchell Pearce,

Aidan Guerra, Shaun Kenny-

Dowall, Chris Heighington and

Jamie Buhrer – to lead the way

this week.

All have visited Auckland with

their previous clubs and returned

victorious.

“Some of the senior players

we’ve got in the club now have

been over there and done very

well in the past, and I’d like

to think some of our younger

players have certainly grown,”

Brown said. Buhrer, who won at

Mt Smart with Manly in 2014,

said his teammates would not be

concerned about “the history or

our past record against them”.

He was confident that

Newcastle’s younger brigade

would have learned from

previous transtasman trips and

would cope better with the travel

factor.

“I suppose the longer you’re

in the NRL, the less the travel

impacts you,” he said. “Because

of the youth of our squad over

the last few years, I’d imagine

those travels have maybe done

a bit of damage to those boys

mentally.

“But they’ve got a few games

under their belts over there now,

and a few older heads here at the

club.

“So it’s an important game

for us. In the grand scheme of

things, we need to start winning

games.”

Show homes

the ultimate way to shop around

Across Canterbury, we are blessed with an extensive

array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build

show homes to demonstrate their

workmanship, display innovative

design ideas and present a snapshot

into a new and luxurious lifestyle,

featuring all the latest in materials,

fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a way

nothing else can. You can absorb the

ambiance they present and admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology.

You can ask questions, take notes

and compare. You can see at a glance

features you would love to emulate or

would avoid when building your home.

Best of all, you will see the building

companies’ attention to detail.

Show homes are the perfect way to

get a good idea of pricing, discover

good quality and value, learn about

superior use of space, future-proofing,

ongoing maintenance and long-term

returns.

So what are you waiting for? Check

out your maps, grab a notepad and

pencil and begin the exciting project of

building your own home.

RESOURCE MANAGEMENT ACT 1991

Resource consent application:

Applicant:

Christchurch City Council

Address for service: Graham Harrington, Christchurch City Council,

PO Box 73014, Christchurch 8154 or email: CSNDC@ccc.govt.nz

CRC190445 – to discharge water and contaminants to land and water, including coastal water, from:

The existing and future stormwater network;

• Stormwater generated from roofs of individual existing sites, greenfield development sites and

re-development sites and is discharged within the site; and

• Stormwater generated from hard standing areas of individual existing residential sites, greenfield

development sites and re-development sites and is discharged within the site.

This includes all existing and future stormwater networks within Christchurch City and the settlements of

Banks Peninsula. The application provides for all discharges of stormwater including from all construction

sites, industrial sites and sites where hazardous industries or activities may be occurring. This application

replaces application CRC160056, which was previously notified in 2016. The previous application excluded

discharges from ‘high risk sites’. CCC now propose to take responsibility for these ‘high risk sites’ within the

scope of the resource consent from 2025 onwards.

The discharges will occur in accordance with Stormwater Management Plans that demonstrate the means

by which the quality of stormwater discharges will be progressively improved and from which the proposed

contaminant load reductions will be met, as well as setting specific objectives for the individual catchments.

Stormwater Management Plans have already been prepared for the Ōtākaro/Avon River catchment,

Pūharakekenui/Styx River and the part of the Huritini/Halswell River catchment that is located within the

Christchurch City boundaries. Stormwater Management Plans will be prepared for the Ōpāwaho/Heathcote

River by 30 June 2019, the Estuary and Coastal Areas and Outer Area Christchurch by 20 December 2019

and Te Pātaka o Rākaihautū/Banks Peninsula settlements by 20 December 2020.

A consent duration of 25 years is sought.
