Council drug testing may be in the pipeline

• By Emily O’Connell

DISTRICT COUNCIL staff

could be randomly drug tested in

the future.

A review into whether random

drug testing will happen is

expected to be finished in about

six months.

The district council doesn’t

have a random drug testing

policy at present.

The review comes as a drug

testing issue was revealed at

the weekend at the Ashburton

District Council.

Earlier in the year, Ashburton

District Council acting chief

executive Jane Donaldson

declined to take a random drug

test due to process not being

followed. Ashburton District

Council spokeswoman Sarah

Mosley said it was addressed at

the time by then chief executive

Andrew Dalziel. “If someone

declines to undergo a drug

test, will not or cannot supply

a sample, or tampers with a

sample, the matter is investigated

and the appropriate action is

determined,” she said.

Selwyn District Council

spokesman Chris Hewitt said

the review “involves comparing

working (industry standard)

policies with our workforce,

talking to our people and

authoring a policy document

with staff involvement.”

He said all policies are

reviewed annually or sooner if

legislation changes.

Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall

said he did not know about the

review, but the district council

is “always” looking at its staffing

policies.

“I can understand if you

have staff operating dangerous

machinery, but other than that I

don’t particularly myself see the

need for it,” he said.

The Drug Detection Agency

said it was commonplace for

councils to test, or request tests

of their contractors. It said

refusals were uncommon, and

usually became a companyspecific

disciplinary procedure.

Waihora’s

big

double

WAIHORA claimed their

first Combined Country and

Coleman Shield double in the

club’s history after beating

Darfield 20-10 in the Ellesmere

division one rugby final on

Saturday.

Waihora produced two

second half tries in Darfield to

seal the win after they battled

into a strong wind in the first

half and trailed 3-0 at halftime.

Waihora lost only two

games all season, including

their opening match against

Saracens, and have dominated

the country rugby scene this

year. Coach Joff Mooar said

the team achieved all the

goals they set for themselves

during the pre-season but will

be eager to defend both titles

again next year.

SOME GREAT sporting milestones in the

paper today.

Waihora midfielder Richard Mills

marked his side’s Coleman Shield win

with his 200th appearance. Veteran

Gareth Pietzner hung up his boots for the

last time after the win, and recorded 280 games in the process.

In the round-ball code, Selwyn United midfielder Jamie

Carrodus recorded 100 games for the premier team last week.

The 27-year-old Scot came out here six years ago for building

work after the earthquakes. He has seen the ups and downs of

football in Selwyn, from the joys of Mainland Premier League

promotion to the frustrations of this season’s campaign.

And on the general news front, district council staff may be

subjected to drug tests in the future (page 1).

It’ll be another cost on our rates.

Christmas present

looms for long-suffering residents

• By Emily O’Connell

Grant Miller

LONG-SUFFERING residents

of a potholed Lincoln street have

finally got the news they have

been waiting for.

An unsealed part of West Belt,

north of the Gerald St intersection,

should be fixed by Christmas,

says the district council.

One of the

street’s residents

Junior Young

said the announcement

was

“marvellous”.

He has been

filling in the potholes

on West

Belt for years

and says if the

road was in Rolleston, it would

have been fixed by now.

“I’ve been here 10 years and

I’ve probably filled them in three

times since I’ve been here,” he

said.

The road is littered with holes,

which fill up with water when it

rains, making it tricky when getting

in and out of driveways.

District council asset engineer

transportation manager Mark

Chamberlain said funding has

been approved as part of the

long term and annual plan process

to seal the existing unsealed

shoulder.

He said the $50,000 project

will see the road repaired between

the existing seal edge and

the kerb and channel, and parking

spaces will be painted.

FRUSTRATED: West Belt

resident Junior Young filling

in potholes along his street

as he waits for the district

council to fix them.

Miller said he shared the residents’

frustration but they have

“got there in the end.”

“I apologise to residents and

people of Lincoln for the time it

has taken but certainly believe

it’s well overdue,” he said.

Cr Miller said fixing the road

has taken a long time because

of “prioritisation of council

expenditure.”

“No one will deny it’s not

been done as fast as we’d like. I

would have liked it done faster

but things have to be prioritised

and that’s just the nature of

governments,” he said.

‘DROWN HIM’ CASE

Two youths in the Rolleston

“drown him” case have had their

charges amended. Originally

the 15 and 16-year-olds were

charged with aggravated robbery.

But at a hearing last week

the charges were amended to

injury with intent to injure. A

two or three-day hearing is set

to start 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.

Hasson tries to stop more money on pool

• By Emily O’Connell

DISTRICT councillor Debra

Hasson’s bid to stop the budget

increase for the Selwyn Aquatic

Centre extension was not

supported last week.

The district council has

approved a $14.8 million

extension of the aquatic centre,

an increase of $2.8 million

on the original budget. It also

The district is forecast to grow

from about 60,000 people to

80,000 in 10 years.

At the meeting, Cr Hasson

suggested making an amendment

so the budget for the

However, she did not receive

support from her fellow councillors

over the aquatic centre

budget.

District councillor Murray

Lemon was not happy with her

statements.

“Not so many weeks ago you

proposed we should be building

a 50m pool . . . personally, this is

grand-standing,” he said.

District councillor John

Morten voted against the proposed

amendment.

“Whilst I don’t think anyone

about the increase, I think we

would be less happy if we ended

he said.

“The community will remember

Camping grounds under review

Bid to ease

pressure

on district

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

CHANGES COULD be made

to how camping grounds are

managed in Selwyn.

The district council is reviewing

the impact of freedom

camping at its reserves and

considering what is needed to

address ongoing issues ahead of

summer. It is expected a report

will be completed next month.

Selwyn Times previously reported

that pressure was being

put on the district as a result of

the Christchurch City Council

changing its Freedom Camping

Bylaw to ban campers without

toilets from using city councilowned

land.

District council open spaces

and property manager Mark

Rykers said it needs a plan to

provide and manage camping

facilities due to the rapid

growth and demand of visitors.

The district council is

responsible for managing

campgrounds like Rakaia Huts,

Whitecliffs Domain, Chamberlains

Ford, Coes Ford and

Lakeside Domain. It employs

three reserve officers to monitor

them.

But Mr Rykers said anti-social

behaviour, vandalism and

rubbish have not been a major

issue at Selwyn campgrounds

compared to other areas in the

country.

However, the Whitecliffs

Township Committee requested

an area under the bridge at

Whitecliffs Domain be reserved

for residents in the Long Term

Plan. It said the area was being

saturated with campers in

summer and should be made

“pedestrian only” with a small

parking area.

But committee chairwoman

Jodie Thompson said the area

did not have to be exclusively

for residents. She said the review

could address issues at the

domain. Last month the district

council put three picnic tables

in the area and planted thousands

of native plants.

REVIEW: The

Whitecliffs

Domain is

one of the

campgrounds

managed by

the district

council.

“I am personally not against

freedom camping. I think it is

great when you can go somewhere

and camp for free,” Mrs

Thompson said.

But she said other residents

think it is unfair because they

pay rates towards the campground

and are unable to use it.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Third cow

hit by car

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

POLICE ARE reminding

motorists to keep their speed

down at night after a spate of car v

cow accidents in Selwyn.

A woman was driving home

from the Crusaders Super

Rugby final against the Lions

when her vehicle hit a cow in

Rolleston.

The collision happened on

Lincoln Rolleston Rd, near

Branthwaite Drive, at about 11pm

on August 4.

The vehicle sustained significant

damage to the bonnet and roof.

The two woman in the car and

cow were uninjured.

It is the third time a vehicle has

hit wandering stock in the past

month.

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills said

while it is hopefully just “a bit of a

blip,” it is a good reason for people

to keep their speed down at night.

A 27-year-old suffered serious

injures when she collided with a

cow in Burnham on July 19.

On July 12, former mayor Bill

Woods and his two passengers

were lucky to escape serious

injury after his Mercedes-Benz,

travelling at about 100km/h, collided

with a cow.

ART: A Lincoln resident admires the new sculpture, Piwakawaka-Fantail over the

Liffey, outside the library. ​

A NEW artwork has been installed in

Lincoln’s town centre.

The Lincoln Community Committee

has installed the artwork in Meyenburg

Square to complement the Lincoln Town

Centre Plan.

The square is encompassed by the

Lincoln Library and Service Centre, the

Laboratory and home to the weekly Lincoln

Farmers and Craft Market.

Kathryn Claridge and Ralph Scott of the

Lincoln Community Committee visited

Peter Joyce and Annabelle Menzies-Joyce

at their Tai Tapu Sculpture Garden home

to get ideas.

This led to the committee commissioning

sculptor Bing Dawe to design

the Piwakawaka-Fantail over the Liffey,

specifically for Lincoln.

Committee secretary Pauline Hayes said

the sculpture cost $20,000 and $7500 was

granted from the Springs and Ellesmere

Discretionary Funds Committee. She said

the committee contributed $10,000 to the

project while $2500 was donated by the

defunct Lincoln Business Association. Mr

In Brief

SHEFFIELD HOUSE FIRE

A house near Sheffield has been lucky not

to burn down after a fire. The fire started

in the chimney before it caught part of

the roof. Sheffield volunteer fire brigade

station officer Keith Taege said the house

was saved because a heater tank next to

the fire place melted, helping stop the fire

from spreading. He said if the heater tank

had been on the other end of the house,

it would have been lost. The incident

happened at 6.25am on Saturday at Waianiwaniwa

Rd. Sheffield, Springfield and

Darfield brigades attended. A couple, three

children and dog were in the house when

the fire started. The family had been living

in the house for four days after moving

from Dunedin.

APPLICATIONS OPEN

Applications to the district council’s

Creative Communities Scheme are open.

Funding is available for communitybased

creative projects that promote arts

or culture. Visit www.selwyn.govt.nz/

artsfunding for more information.

Dawe said the sculpture continues a long

series of works which come under the collective

title, A Landscape with Too Many

Holes.

“In these works I have shown a balance

between the birds rendered in the positive

and the voids or holes representing the

negative. As we celebrate and appreciate

what we have we must remind ourselves

and be ever vigilant of what we have lost,”

he said.

Mr Dawe has also borrowed from another

series of works titled Markers on the

Landscape and these share the elongated

triangular shape of the main body of the

work.

“In this work I have taken five viewpoints

of the fantail as it intercepts and

feeds on a mayfly hatch over the local

Liffey Stream at Lincoln. The fantail’s

amazing displays of aeronautical prowess

are familiar and fascinating to most New

Zealanders.”

The sculpture’s base was organised by

committee member Johnny Brown and

was built by HEB Construction.

YOUNG FARMERS CHAIR

A Dunsandel Young Farmers member has

been selected as the new chairwoman

of the New Zealand Young Farmers

Board. Ash-Leigh Campbell was elected

chairwoman on Wednesday, replacing

Waikato’s Jason Te Brake. Ms Campbell is

the first woman to be elected as chair of

the board in the last 12 years and one of

four women on the board. The 27-year-old

is a technical farm manager with Ngāi

Tahu and helps oversee the management

of eight dairy farms.

COUNCIL GOES PAPERLESS

The Selwyn Youth Council has decided to

go paperless at its meetings. Chairwoman

Paige Sullivan said it was decided at its last

meeting as a result of the large amounts of

paper each member had including meeting

agendas and the youth council’s budget.

“We had so much paper it was ridiculous,”

she said. Miss Sullivan said it is better for

the environment and aligns with the youth

council’s values. It will come into effect

from next month.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Young witness recalls air crash

A memorial plaque

dedicated to those

who died in the 1953 air

force crash, in Wigram

will be unveiled later

this year. Reporter Matt

Salmons talks to former

Prebbleton resident Peter

Smith who remembers

the tragedy

PETER SMITH remembers the

day of October 15, 1953, well.

It was the day he witnessed the

country’s deadliest domestic air

force crash at the age of 14.

Living in Prebbleton and

with an uncle in the Royal

New Zealand Air Force, Mr

Smith said seeing aircraft

overhead was a common thing at

the time.

While out on his bicycle with

a friend, an odd engine noise

alerted him that something was

amiss that day. When he looked

up Mr Smith said he saw one of

the Devons go down.

Mr Smith said the boys

grabbed their bikes and in spite

of no smoke to follow they “rode

like mad down a shingle road”

towards the crash site, coming to

within 150m of the wreckage.

BEFORE THE 1953 London

to Christchuch Air Race,

commercial air travel to New

Zealand from Europe wasn’t

frequent.

Organised by the Canterbury

International Air Race Council,

the 1953 event would be the

longest of its kind, tasking flight

crews with the 19,756km distance

in two categories; speed or transport

handicap. It would both

put the country on the map and

showcase the future of international

commercial travel.

Crews from the United Kingdom,

Holland, Australia and a

single RNZAF crew left London

on October 8.

MEMORY: Plane crash witness Peter Smith at the Air Force Museum of New Zealand with a

Royal New Zealand Air Force Devon.

Mr Smith said ambulance officers

already on scene told the

two boys to stay back.

“I didn’t see a body, which I’m

very glad of as that would have

haunted me,” Mr Smith said.

He estimated that including

ceremony. Two

would collide

and crash

in Wigram

while awaiting

clearance to

land.

In just under 24 hours, the

crew of a Royal Australian Air

Force Canberra bomber touched

down to cheering crowds in

Christchurch to win the speed

section. In the transport section,

in spite of coming in behind a

British European Airways flight

(carrying the first copy of Sir

emergency services there would

have only been around 20 people

in the field, most of whom were

asked to leave when police arrived.

“Police ordered people off the

site, naturally, there were bits of

aircraft around. We asked if we

of Everest to reach New Zealand)

the Dutch KLM Airlines DC-6A

Liftmaster carrying 50 Dutch immigrants

won the day.

New Zealand’s only entry

had to pull out after encountering

issues over Sri Lanka, the crew

only saved by the actions

could help, but we were happy to

go.”

After being turned away, Mr

Smith said they found a wheel

from one of the Devons in the

grass 30-40m away, strapped it to

his bike and took it home.

Why the Devons were airborne

of squadron leader Larry

Siegert.

In celebration of the race, a 27

plane flyover of the prize-giving

was organised by the RNZAF for

October 15.

Two of those, NZ1810 and

NZ1811, would encounter tragedy

on their return to base.

“When my father found out, he

was pretty cranky about it and

took it back to Wigram the next

day.

“We should never have taken it.”

Efforts by retired engineer and

Halswell Residents’ Association

member Ron Fensom to have a

memorial plaque placed near the

crash site brought the event back

to the forefront of Mr Smith’s

mind.

“It brings back a lot of memories.

It’s never stopped flashing

through my mind. I’ll always

remember the crash.

“At the time, I wasn’t sure how

I felt . . . but as the years have

passed I often think of those

brave young pilots who lost their

lives while on duty for their

country and how it must have

affected their friends and family,

then and now.”

Mr Fensom said he was

receiving feedback from people

interested in the unveiling and

the crash. The unveiling is set for

the afternoon of October 15, to

coincide with the date and time

of the crash.

Mr Fensom said he hoped

to soon get in contact with the

families of the pilots who had

died, so they would be able to

attend.

The Wigram crash remains

New Zealand’s worst

domestic air force crash

with seven men killed. The

two RNZAF de Havilland

Devon aircraft were part of a

flyover of Christchurch Airport

marking the 1953 London

to Christchurch Air Race

prize-giving ceremony. While

the two Devons awaited

clearance to land at Wigram

Airfield, one clipped the wing

of the other. Both lost control

and crashed into paddocks

killing all crew members.

They were:

Squadron Leader

Sholto R Duncan

Pilots – Flight Lieutenants

Edwin Ebbett and Erling

Ziesler

Crewmen – Brian J Keogh,

Eric Melrose, William

Sharman and Russell

Woodcock.

Lincoln skate park

INTERNATIONAL

Comedy

Night

Lincoln Event Centre

SATURDAY

6 OCTOBER

ready for action following redesign

ON SALE

NOW

www.selwynsounds.co.nz

THE LINCOLN Domain Skate

Park is now open to the public

and ready for action.

District council property and

commercial manager Douglas

Marshall said the redesign of the

skate park achieves the initial

goal of being a quality facility

where younger skaters and scooter

riders can rapidly progress,

learn and have fun.

“The council is grateful for the

support of the community while

the changes were being made,”

Mr Marshall said.

“We understand that locals

have had to be really patient

while we get the skate park right.

However, we’re confident locals

will really enjoy this new facility.”

The changes to the skate park’s

design were also influenced by

discussions with skaters and

other skate park designers.

“We’ve actively listened to the

community’s ideas and have incorporated

some of these into the

new design,” Mr Marshall said.

An official opening of the skate

park will be held on Sunday,

from 11am to 1pm.

The event, hosted by skating

retailer Cheapskates, will include

music, food, spot prizes skateboarding

demonstrations and

lessons on skate park etiquette.

The Lincoln Community Committee

will also assist with the

event on the day.

While the skate park is ready

to use, contractors will be on

site this week to do some minor

work.

District council community

projects and facilities manager

Cam Warr said this will include

the final shaping and completion

of the retaining wall, and fencing

will also be installed above one of

the bowls.

“Our contractors will continue

to be on site to do some detail

work, but the areas being worked

on will be coned off and the skate

park will be safe for everyone to

use,” he said.

Mr Warr said the district

council wants to stay in touch

with local skaters and is open to

receiving feedback about the new

skate park.

The Lincoln Reserve playground

is also open after it was

relocated to the southern side of

the path while the skate park was

being redesigned.

•If you have feedback on

the skate park or want more

information, email Cam Warr

on reserves@selwyn.govt.nz.

Power poles on Rolleston footpath only temporary

PLACING: The positioning of power poles along Lincoln Rolleston Rd have caused concern. ​

• By Emily O’Connell

IF YOU’RE confused about

these power poles being in the

footpath, don’t worry, it’s not

permanent.

Concerns have been raised

over the positioning of the poles

on Lincoln Rolleston Rd on the

Rolleston Community Page on

Facebook.

“Sums up Rolleston’s layout

designs in general,” one person

said.

“Wow, I think school kids

could have designed that better.

Crazy,” another wrote.

“Better than no footpath

though,” a person commented.

District council asset manager

transportation Andrew Mazey

said the positioning along the

development of the Falcon’s

Landing and Branthwaite

subdivisions is temporary and

“is in an effort to speed up the

removal of the speed restrictions

along the road.”

“The staging and construction

of the frontage upgrades is

providing some challenges

involving two developers and

private property that is not

currently being developed,” he

said. Mr Mazey said new LED

street lighting poles will be

installed and power cables will

run underground. He said the

new foot and cycle pathway will

be positioned to avoid the new

light poles and other upgrades to

be installed.

“In terms of the time frame to

remove the existing power poles,

the developers are waiting on the

lines company to programme the

work,” Mr Mazey said.

In the meantime, he said

the district council has asked

the developers to improve the

marking of the power poles to

make sure they are very visible to

pathway users.

Your Local Views

DEVELOPMENT: A resource consent application has been

received for a Fresh Choice supermarket and retail facility in

Prebbleton. ​

Readers react to plans

for a development in

Prebbleton, which will

include a Fresh Choice

supermarket

Mike Morton – Finally some

clarity on the future of the land

situated behind the Prebbleton

shops. Please don’t get me wrong,

I think the development of

the land is great as it has been

neglected by the previous owners

for the last five years I have lived

in Prebbleton.

This land was always

overgrown (fire risk) and an

eyesore. But I know now the

impact this will play on the street

I live in, that’s Central Ave. The

obvious increased traffic volume.

I read Malcolm Lyall thinks it is

great and that some Prebbleton

residents were negative towards

the development. Yes, probably

because of the secrecy for so long

and the district council’s lack of

clarity when questions are asked

– I believe the council is very

good at that.

There had been so much

speculation on Prebbleton’s

Facebook page for such a long

time. Already the current

drainage work on the land has

started to impact the street with

mud and a damaged footpaths

where the construction trucks are

going in and out.

Rumours are a truck was too

long for the corner of Central Ave

and Stationmasters and drove

over the rose bushes and pushed

over a lamppost?

The streets are narrow

enough with a lack of parking

as it is. Let’s hope they do the

development right.

Fraser Gemmill – What

about a small swimming pool?

I miss the school pool on Blakes

Rd.

Carolyn Phil Murphy –

Great news.

Kaydee Francis – Yes

finally.

Lynley Jenkins – And

what do we get in Yaldhurst? A

McDonalds.

Readers respond to a

story about convicted

killer John Oliver Jamieson

who crashed through the

Rolleston dog park fence

after a high speed chase

and was jailed for 15

months

Wendy Wilson – Who

said crime doesn’t pay? Free

board, free medical, free food,

no utilities to pay etc. The list is

endless and all at the law abiding

taxpayers’ expense. This is

beyond a joke.

Ryan Baker – So all

those charges and 15 months,

the court system in New

Zealand is a joke and he

supposedly required a heavy

penalty. Then what would

light be? Tea and scones on

the front porch with a watchdog?

Steve Walters – Lock him

up for life. There’s no room in

society for this oxygen thief.

Trevor Taylor – 10 years

without parole would of been

more appropriate.

Judith Roberts – 15 months

– what a joke.

Benjamin Curtin – What a

waste of space.

Kodi Campbell – Rolleston’s

a prison anyway.

Jean Williams – Obviously

not long enough.

Stephen Graham – It’s

because of scum like this that

we need to keep the three strikes

law.

Readers respond to an

article about calls for a

stop sign to be put in at the

intersection of Waimakariri

Gorge Rd and State

Highway 73

Grant Prescott – There has

been a lot of local discussion

regarding the give way at State

Highway 73 and Waimakariri

Gorge Rd. I drive this road

regularly and the sight from

both directions is excellent, in

addition the railway crossing

also encourages you to slow

significantly. As I see it, we have

a few residents wanting a stop

sign and making a song and

dance about it. At the end of

the day, a give way is give way

– if you fail to give way at any

junction the consequences can

be dire, if you put a stop sign

there the same applies. With

the excellent sight from both

directions, a stop sign will make

no difference at all, it would be

a waste of ratepayers’ money.

Adhere to the road signs and

look, that is all that is required.

Paul Wright – I’m a Sheffield

resident and have had three

near misses in the last six weeks.

People just pull out in front of

you. Something has to be done

about it.

IMPACT: John Oliver Jamieson (inset) was sentenced to 15 months jail after he crashed into a

Rolleston dog park fence.

“We’re excited to bring the event to Darfield this year to showcase the sport and recreation

activities Darfield, neighbouring communities and the wider Selwyn district has to offer.”

Around 20 indoor and outdoor sports, activities, games and challenges are planned, including

Alpine Fault

Roadshow screenings

Are you and your family prepared for an Alpine Fault earthquake?

As part of the Council Emergency Management Team’s Alpine

Fault earthquake planning, it has been hosting an Alpine Fault

Roadshow throughout the year. The Roadshow has been screening

a Project Alpine Fault Magnitude 8 (Project AF8) video, which shows

the likely consequences of a magnitude 8 earthquake along the

South Island’s Alpine Fault. In the video, Professor Tom Wilson of

Canterbury University clearly explains the science behind an Alpine

Fault rupture.

Neighbourhood Support and Community Response coordinator Sue

Jenkins says the aim of the Roadshow is to raise awareness of the

likely impacts on Selwyn communities after an earthquake and how

people can prepare.

“We had about 200 people attend the Darfield Roadshow, so there

is real interest out there in the science of the Alpine Fault and

what might happen if it ruptures,” she says. “We know it’s likely to

happen in our lifetime, so we need to be prepared and have some

plans in place to recover as quickly as possible.”

If you would like a screening in your area, contact the Council

on: (03) 347 2800.

Next screenings

Rolleston Town Centre

Rolleston Library and Community Centre

Update August 2018

your space + your ideas

Design concepts unveiled for new library and

community centre

Design concepts for Rolleston’s exciting new library

and community centre have now been approved by

Selwyn District Council.

Construction of the library and community centre is

set to begin in April next year and it is planned to be

completed in 2020.

The two-storey, 2256m 2 facility is designed to be

flexible, adaptive and suit a range of community

needs – so visitors can enjoy attractive spaces which

can be reconfigured for a variety of uses. The library

and community centre will include ample room for

current and future library collections, along with

performance spaces, exhibition and display areas,

children’s spaces plus research and historical spaces.

Christchurch architecture firm Warren and Mahoney,

which is responsible for bringing the Rolleston town

centre to life, ensured the facility’s design incorporated

the community’s feedback, as well as the cultural and

environmental makeup of the Selwyn district.

“It was important for us to listen to the community’s

ideas and aspirations for their future facility,” says

the firm’s Principal Jonathan Coote. “Our vision

for the Rolleston town centre development is to

create a vibrant town centre and a focal point for the

community which will contribute positively to the

economic growth of the district.”

Council property and commercial manager Douglas

Marshall says a distinctive design was also a key

factor. “We want to ensure that the design fits in

well with the landscape around it,” Mr Marshall

says. “From the Tennyson Street site the Selwyn

landscape is very prominent, with views from the

mountains through the foothills and down to the

Canterbury Plains.”

The original budget, set at $19.1 million, has increased

to $22.2 million. The new budget recognises

construction costs with comparable library projects

in the Canterbury region. The new budget also leaves

room for any additional costs incurred during the

building process.

The Council worked closely with Te Taumutu Runanga

on the design to ensure the facility reflected the

landscape and important cultural values of our district.

About the Rolleston Town Centre Master Plan

A master plan for Rolleston town centre was adopted by the Council in 2014 after extensive community

consultation. The plan sets out a vision for a town centre, located on what is currently part of Rolleston

Reserve, which will be a vibrant and engaging destination for Rolleston and the wider Selwyn district.

For more information and to view the Master Plan documents: www.selwyn.govt.nz/rollestontowncentre.

Rolleston Town Centre

reaches new milestone

The library and community centre is a key project in the

development of the Rolleston Town Centre.

The new facility – located on what is currently part of Rolleston

Reserve, near Tennyson Street – will replace the existing library

that is now too small for Rolleston and the wider district.

Did you know? Selwyn’s population is forecast to grow from

around 60,000 today to 80,000 by 2028.

Mayor Sam Broughton says the facility will cater for the

increasing needs of the Selwyn district as its population

continues to grow. “Thanks to your feedback, our expert

designers have created a facility which has spaces and features

which reflect innovation and opportunity,” he says.

“The facility will be an asset for the district, and the first step in

developing a town centre the people of Selwyn can enjoy and

be proud of.”

How did we get your feedback?

Late last year we spoke to hundreds of residents across Selwyn

at libraries, community events, neighbourhood gatherings and

online. We asked them to imagine they had travelled through

time, and to report back to us about what a future library and

community space might look like as well as what kinds of

activities that could be enjoyed. The wonderful feedback we

received helped inform the design.

What’s coming next …?

The Council will soon seek resource consent for the new

building and a detailed design for the facility will

be created.

A critical part of the town centre project is the redevelopment

of the open space in Rolleston Reserve into a vibrant,

high-amenity urban park. It is planned to be a destination

for locals and visitors, supporting a range of passive

recreational activities.

It’s important that the reserve complements the town

centre facilities and is welcoming and useable for

residents. To help us get the design right, we will be looking

for community views and we will soon be asking for your

ideas and into the planning and design of this space.

Watch for more details over the next few months on

proposed concepts for the reserve, and on how you can

provide feedback.

Hillyers pie on Hurley’s list

ahead of Lincoln comedy night

A HILLYERS pie is on comedian

Ben Hurley’s bucket list when

he comes back to Lincoln in

October.

He will be the master of ceremonies

at the third annual Live

in Lincoln comedy night.

The first two events were successful,

with comedy-lovers from

near and far making each a sell

out.

Hurley says he’s been to Lincoln

many times and a lot has

changed over the years.

“It’s got a bit classier. You certainly

still see the (agriculture)

students in their gumboots in the

pub but that used to be all you

saw and now there’s actually nice

bars and restaurants and stuff,”

he said.

Although he didn’t see it himself,

Hurley has heard someone

once wore a deer carcass to a ball

in Lincoln.

“It’s definitely in my head and

the image comes up every time I

think of Lincoln now,” he said.

Having never tried a Hillyers

pie, Hurley says he’s looking forward

to getting one and judging

it “harshly.”

He’s feeling good about the

upcoming show and says there’s

always a “really great line-up”

COMEDY: Ben Hurley is set to MC Live in Lincoln in October.

and this year would be no exception.

Live in Lincoln promoter

David Parlane has cast his net

even wider than before.

“An enjoyable night in Lincoln

listening to some of New Zealand’s

best comedians and our

international comedians as well,”

he said.

The performer will include

international comedian and head

writer for Seven Days Nick Rado,

recent Billy T Award winner

Melanie Bracewell, Melbournebased

comedian Rhys Nicholson

and United States comedian Wilson

Dixon from Cripple Creek,

Arizona.

•Live in Lincoln will be held

on October 6 at the Lincoln

SPORTS

INSPIRATION: Richard Mills leads the Waihora team onto the field for the

Coleman Shield final which was his 200th game. PHOTO: KAREN CASEY

• By Jacob Page

WAIHORA‘S dream run

this year has culminated

in them winning the

Coleman Shield Ellesmere

rugby competition after

beating Darfield 20-10 on

Saturday.

The win gave the

Magpies both the

Combined Country

competition trophy and

the Coleman Shield –

the first time they have

achieved the double.

The result also means

Darfield will have to wait

another year to try to claim

their first Coleman Shield

after being beaten in the

last two finals.

Waihora have matched

Southbridge, which did

the double last year. Previous

to that the feat was

achieved by Lincoln in

2011.

Darfield, motivated by

home ground advantage,

took a 3-0 lead into

half-time but would have

wanted more.

Proud supporters of

Rugby & Netball in Selwyn

Waihora cap off

dream season with

Coleman Shield win

The Alex Parker penalty

was not enough of an

advantage for the hosts

after they played the first

half with the wind at their

backs. Two Harry Kirk

penalties seized the lead

for Waihora and, with the

wind now working in their

favour, attacking play became

easier to construct.

A trick-play line-out

move, which saw Matt

Stone catch the ball and

stroll through a gap, gave

the visitors breathing room

on the scoreboard but it

was short lived.

Darfield’s No 10 Scott

Mitchell replied with a try

under the posts to close the

gap to 13-10 with 20min

to play. Stone was the

hero again as he took an

intercept from a Darfield

lineout near half way.

The hard-running lock

ran as far as he could

before handing the ball off

to Joe Robbins who scored

the decisive try of the final.

It proved to be a great

way to acknowledge

Richard Mills in his 200th

game for Waihora, it was

also the best way to send

veteran Gareth Pietzner

into retirement after 280

games. Waihora coach

Joff Mooar praised his

team’s defence in the first

half. “To turn with the

wind and only be down

three points was great,” he

said. “We felt it could have

been a 12 to 15-point wind.

We set some goals before

the start of the season and

to have achieved every

single one is something

this team can be proud of,”

he said.

In other Ellesmere rugby

finals, Banks Peninsula

won the division two final

24-10 over Southbridge-

Leeston, Hornby triumphed

48-20 against

Burnham Dunsandel-

Irwell in the division three

decider, Waihora beat

Springston 25-13 in the

colts final and Prebbleton

won the under-18 final

49-8 over Plains United.

•More sport, page 24-25

CHARGING: Lock Matthew Stone on the

charge.

MATCH-WINNER: Waihora flanker Joe Robbins scores a crucial try. (Below) –

Darfield’s Kieran Melkle looks to escape the grasp of Gareth Pietzner.

Carrodus strikes century

for Sewlyn United

• By Jacob Page

SELWYN UNITED midfielder

Jamie Carrodus has experienced

every emotional high and low

throughout his 100 games for the

premier team.

The 27-year-old, who

celebrated his 100th game with a

5-2 win over Universities, shared

in the joy of last year’s Mainland

Premier League promotion

and the frustration of a 2018

campaign that has seen them

fighting for top-flight survival.

However, the club’s first

centenarian would not change

any of it.

“When I first came here six

years ago, we were near the

bottom of the division below

where we are now, so to see the

improvement and be part of it

has been pleasing.

“When we won promotion last

year, it was a Tuesday night game

and we had 300-400 people

SPORTS

watching,” he said.

“It was a great atmosphere and

a big night with not many of us

making it to work the next day.”

He moved to Rolleston from

Scotland six years ago with

the prospect of building work

following the earthquakes.

He has since gone on to

become a qualified refrigeration

engineer and said he now calls

Christchurch home and Selwyn

United his club.

“I used to play for Stewarton

Annick, a village club just

outside of Glasgow, but I’ve

really enjoyed my time with

Selwyn United.”

Carrodus had been the

team’s penalty taker in the early

part of the season, but admitted

his attacking instincts had

been tempered somewhat in the

MPL.

“I was taking penalties and got

three or four until I missed one

and then someone else got a go,”

he said.

“The team still gives me a lot

of stick about it, but to me, the

keeper made a good save and

sometimes that will happen.

“We’ve always been a team

that can score goals but we also

concede too many.

“I like to get forward when I

can but the MPL has been a

step up this year, especially

for the younger guys, and we

haven’t always been going

forward as much as we would

have liked.”

The win over Universities in

their previous game went a long

way to ensuring Carrodus and

his teammates will be playing

MPL football once again next

year.

Plate semi-final looms after form slump

• By Jacob Page

LINCOLN COMBINED will

have to re-group for a plate

semi-final at Shirley Boys’ High

School on Saturday after their

third consecutive defeat in the UC

Championship.

Lincoln Combined were no

match for Christchurch Boys’

High School in their final round

encounter, losing 45-7.

It was their third heavy defeat

in a row following the school

holidays with the string of results

forcing them to settle for seventh,

Coach Mike Wilson said the

team would have taken seventh

at the start of the season, but

admitted, with a top four berth

on the cards, he was disappointed

with the performances since the

school holidays.

“We weren’t a match for

Christchurch Boys’ physically,” he

said.

“They really dished us to it and

we struggled to counter it.

Down 0-26 at halftime, Lincoln

Combined did score first in the

second half through captain Wil

Gualter but it was the only bright

spot of a game where they were

beaten in every facet of the game.

“We’ve struggled to match-it

with the traditional rugby schools

since the break but there’s still

plenty in the tank for the final two

weeks,” he said.

“We always aim to win more

than half our games so to have

an eight win, five loss record is

something we are proud to have

achieved.”

Nelson College will host

Marlborough Boys’; College in

the other plate semi-final for

team which finished fifth through

eighth.

Lincoln Combined should have

some confidence when playing

Shirley Boys’ since they did beat

them 20-18 in their round-robin

encounter.

Broadfield A currently lead the

competition after a 55-42 win

over fourth-placed Greenpark

B, while defending champions

Lincoln A were held to a 70-70

draw against Greenpark B.

Southbridge A beat Rolleston

A 67-49 in the other game to

maintain third.

The result showed Greenpark

A could be title contenders but

they sit fifth and will need to

beat bottom-placed Rolleston A

to make the semi-finals.

Previously this season,

Broadfield A have beaten Lincoln

A by one goal and managed a

draw in their second encounter.

Lincoln A coach Vanessa

Robinson said she was happy to

take a draw against Greenpark

A.

“I was pleased with it because

it showed that we could play for

all four quarters and not let our

standards slip,” she said.

“We started really well which

has been something we have

struggled with all season and our

attacking end performed well

also.”

Lincoln A goal shoot Hannah

Wilson shot 91 per cent for the

game.

Robinson said starting Tyler

Rollo at goal attack gave her

attack some energy, which she

hoped would flow into Saturday’s

top-of-the-table clash.

“We know Broadfield will give

us the best of what they’ve got

this weekend and we plan to do

the same,” Robinson said.

Broadfield A coach Yvonne

Crichton-Hill said her team had

plenty of self-belief that they

could claim their first title in five

years.

“It’s great to be at the top but

we want to stay there for the

semi-finals,” she said.

“I think the girls know they

are capable of winning it this

year.”

Results: Southbridge A 67,

Rolleston A 49; Broadfield

A 55, Greenpark B 42;

Greenpark A 70, Lincoln A

70.

Points: Broadfield A 13,

Lincoln A 10, Southbridge A

8, Greenpark B 8, Greenpark

A 7, Rolleston A 5.

Piggies back on the programme

at Selwyn Spring Show

The Ellesmere A&P Association is

virtually squealing with excitement at the

return of pigs to its spring show. Not since

pigs last flew by has the show featured a

class for this intelligent and social farm

animal.

Organisers are particularly looking

forward to hosting entries in the

Commercial Baconer under-12-monthsold

section. Leading the charge are two

local syndicates – the all-girl Pork Pullers

and the Selwyn Swine Breeders.

The Pork Pullers had a sizzling first effort

at the Canterbury A&P Show last year with

their red ribbon triumph over a number of

fun but highly competitive syndicates, all

vying for best boar. Given the hype that

comes with this pig competition it is sure

to create interest and should not be missed.

With the 2018 theme of ‘Where Town

Meets Country’, The Selwyn Spring Show

aims to bring visitors and exhibitors from

urban and rural roots together to promote

the best in country production and living.

Along with the wide variety of classes on

show, there is also the return of the popular

contests Selwyn’s Got Talent, the Sport

Canterbury Top Team Challenge and the

Wearable Arts. The Mounted Games will

also be putting on a fast-paced exhibition

of horsemanship in the Matson & Allan

Main Ring.

Selwyn’s Got Talent is in its second year,

and proved very popular last time with

highly talented acts appearing. There

are some amazing entertainers out

there and this quest could be the start

of something fantastic. Cash prizes are

up for grabs along with the chance to

shine. Both junior and senior classes

are open for entries now.

The Wearable Arts Show has

also had a revamp this year, with a

scarecrow section included on top

of the wearable art and bra design

classes. Junior, youth and open grades

apply for individual or team entries.

Year 6 primary school teams

will also compete in the Top Team

Challenge, which takes place in the

Matson & Allan Ring with great prizes

to be won for their school.

The Selwyn Spring Show is

being held at the Ellesmere

Showgrounds in Leeston

on Saturday, October 13.

For more information and

entry details go to www.

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Farm workers need to feel

valued – every day

Positive, productive employees are at the

heart of any successful business, DairyNZ’s

people team manager Jane Muir says.

“Like any bosses, rural or urban, dairy

farm employers know full well that without

good employees their businesses would

struggle, and in some cases go to the wall.”

Ms Muir made her comments leading up

to Farm Worker Appreciation Day, which

was last Monday, August 6.

“The day is an American invention, but

I’m all for adopting it here so Kiwi farm

employers have a special day to celebrate

their employees – maybe with morning tea

or a pizza lunch, or an early finish to the

working day,” she said.

Apart from doing something special

for staff last Monday, Ms Muir said Farm

Worker Appreciation Day was a reminder

to employers to do the best by their staff

every day of the year.

She said any employee, no matter the

business they are in, would feel more

valued when they were paid fairly and had

good work-life balance – “and their boss,

quite simply, says thank you for a job well

done”.

Also high on her list for employers is

having conversations with staff – tuning

into them as individuals.

“Take an active interest in your employees

– know what appeals to them and motivates

them, ask them what their goals are, and

take the time to upskill them in areas they

are keen about, as well as listening to their

ideas and implementing them if they are

good, or giving constructive feedback if

the concept isn’t suitable or needs further

work.”

Recent statistics put the number of

people working on dairy farms in New

Zealand at 36,000, with approximately

50 per cent employees, 45 per cent

business owners, including farm owners,

sharemilkers and contract milkers, and the

remaining unpaid family members.

On-farm employee roles range from

entry-level dairy assistants to operations

managers. Dairy assistants help in a variety

of ways including with feeding and caring

for animals, milking, and assisting to

ensure the farm is environmentally well

managed.

Operations managers have a strategic

role, sometimes across several farms, with

direct responsibility for returning farm or

shareholder profits and sustainability. In

between there are herd manager, assistant

manager, and farm manager positions.

Ms Muir said DairyNZ provided a range

of information for employers, including

some practical tools like an annual leave

calculator, templates for training and

reviews and a guide to choosing a payroll

system.

“While these have been developed for

the first step in the journey that produces

some of the foods we love the best, any

employer will find them useful.”

Fire rages, homes at risk

Things to do before the end of the month

• By Rachel Vogan

WITH THE days slowly starting

to lengthen it is comforting to

know the last month of winter is

drawing to a close.

The early bulbs add so much

magic to the garden at this time

of year, along with birds actively

foraging for food.

This month, prioritise getting

the last of the winter clean-up

jobs done like pruning, mulching,

cutting back, removing leaves,

clearing gutters and spraying

paths and driveways.

Be ready for the upcoming

invasion of weeds because, as

soon as the soils start to warm

up, any weed seeds that have

been lying dormant will quickly

germinate.

So be ready with your garden

gloves, weeding tools, hoes or

spray to deal with them.

Glasshouse clean up

How is the inside of your

glasshouse looking? Mine

certainly needs some TLC. Make

the most of this last cold month

to give your indoor growing

zone a clean out and tidy up.

Remove any old plants and pull

out any weeds. Over the previous

growing season, it is likely the

soil will be depleted of various

nutrients. In preparation for the

upcoming growing season, enrich

the soil with compost or wellrotted

manure now, then dig this

mixture through into the existing

ground. Vegetable fertiliser can

be added at planting time. Next,

water the soil to get the microbes

working ready for planting. Wash

down the glass and check that all

the vents are working. Replace

broken glass or panels now while

the beds are empty.

Tool kit checklist

Before the upcoming flurry of

action starts, take stock

of your tools and implements

now, fix broken handles

on forks and spades, and make

a list of what tools you may

need to acquire. Discard any old

sprays or canisters wisely. Now

is an excellent time to get the

lawnmower serviced and the

blades sharpened too.

Herbs

The herb garden could do with

a good haircut this month; cut

back leggy oregano, straggly

mint and top-heavy rosemary.

Leafy perennial herbs like

sorrel, salad burnet and fennel

can be cut back to ground level

to stimulate fresh new grunty

greens. Mint responds well to a

good short back and sides, plus

a side dressing of fertiliser about

now. Parsley, chervil, borage

and coriander can all be planted

out now too.

Citrus

Lemons, limes, mandarins,

oranges and kumquats are all

ripe for the picking now. Ripe

fruit will hold on the tree for a

couple of months and, as soon as

it starts to become overripe, will

fall from the tree. Add a layer of

mulch to the base of the plants

now and drench the plants with

a seaweed tonic to give the plants

a boost, hold off adding fertiliser

until around Labour Weekend.

Hydrangeas

Prune back established plants

now, you can remove anything

from 30 per cent to 70 per cent

of the length of the stem or limit

the size to what works best for

your garden. Cuttings can be

taken now too from hydrangeas

– merely insert the cutting into

the moist potting mix, so at

least half the stem is in the soil

and wait patiently until about

Christmas, when roots should

have appeared.

Vegetables

Early seeds can be sown indoors.

Kale, cauliflower, broccoli,

cabbage, bok choy, beetroot,

lettuce, silverbeet and spinach

are go-to crops for August

planting. Aim to sow the seed

thinly, so the germinating plants

are not overcrowded as they

grow. Last chance to get garlic

seed in the grounds. Peas, both

podding and the all-in-one

snap peas (sugar snaps), can be

sown outdoors now. Allow 5cm

between each seed and cover the

area with netting to prevent the

birds from digging up the seeds.

Dwarf peas do not need staking,

however, the taller types do.

It is almost Spring

LET’S GET

GARDENING

let’s get ready for the growing season.

Spring is just around the corner and before we know

it the daylight hours will be longer. As the weather

warms up and the sun shines a little brighter, we head

into the best time of year for gardening. Preparation

is vital as it sets the base for your plants to thrive.

Giving them the best growing environment will

help them to develop and reward you with beautiful

blooms and a bountiful crop.

Hang fire on planting the veggies! But what you can

do is get prepared for when it is time to plant out. Raised

beds can be refreshed, or filled if you are starting from

scratch. Intelligro Veggie Garden Mix is ideal for raised

beds as it is weed-free and comes pre-fertilised. If you

want to boost what is already there, our Organic Compost

is excellent. We also have a variety of fertilisers that will

add those vital and necessary nutrients to help get a

bumper crop.

Refresh your garden beds. Add organic compost and

sheep pellets to your garden to add a vital boost of organic

matter. This will help to promote worm activity, and give

the soil a freshen-up ready for any planting that is going

to occur. If you already have plants in there you can add a

fresh layer of bark mulch to the top too. If you are yet to

plant, then hold off on adding the bark until you have done

the planting.

As the weather

continues to

improve, the list of

things to do gets

bigger and bigger.

tips and ideas!

Situated on the fringe of the fastest growing town in NZ this 4-hectare property offers so much for both the horse lover and or lifestyler.

The well presented 4 bedroom plus office home has large living areas with excellent indoor outdoor flow allowing easy access to the

then make the most of the impressive 60x30m all-weather arena, very well subdivided paddocks plus the boundary riding track which

Four things you MUST do before buying a home

Buying a home is a big deal. It’s likely to be the most expensive thing you buy, and it can be a complicated legal

process. It’s even tougher in a hot market, where there is a lot of competition for a limited number of properties.

It might be tempting to take a few shortcuts, but failing to do things properly could cause more problems later.

Here are our top four tasks for home

buyers.

1. Research the property

The real estate agent selling the property

acts on behalf of the seller, however they

are also required to tell you everything

they know about the property. They

must respond professionally to all your

enquiries and not withhold any details.

Remember that you still need to do your

own due diligence. That means getting a

title search so you can find out all the facts

about the property’s ownership, boundary

and access, as held by Land Information

New Zealand (LINZ). It’s a good idea to

get a Land Information Memorandum

(LIM), which shows information held

by the local council about the property

and land. For valuable feedback on the

property’s condition, get a report done

by an inspector who has professional

indemnity insurance and carries out their

work in accordance with the New Zealand

Property Inspection Standard. Although

this all costs money, it will save you more

in the long term. Sellers may occasionally

provide some of this information for you.

If this happens, check that it is up-to-date.

2. Get legal advice

Buying property is expensive, and it can

cost even more if something goes wrong.

That’s why it’s important to get legal advice

before you sign anything. A lawyer will

handle all the paperwork involved in the

process, including the title search, and

offer impartial advice. If you don’t have a

lawyer, the New Zealand Law Society can

help you find one at propertylawyers.org.

nz.

3. Understand the sale process

There are several methods of buying and

selling property, for example, tender or

auction. It’s important to understand the

process for the property you are buying.

Practices can vary between agencies so

make sure you confirm details with them.

The Home Buyer’s Guide at buyingahome.

reaa.govt.nz has more helpful advice.

4. Read the sale and purchase

agreement and understand what it

means

The sale and purchase agreement is your

contract with the seller. It is crucial to read

it very carefully and get legal advice before

you sign. You can negotiate the terms and

conditions of an agreement, but once you

sign it, there’s no going back.

Want more free and independent advice

on buying a property? Check out the

Home Buyers’ Guide at buyingahome.

reaa.govt.nz. If you still have questions,

call the Real Estate Agents Authority

(REAA) on 0800 367 7322 (please call

It is, therefore, necessary to decide who

will be the benefactor/s of your property

and belongings should you suddenly pass

away. To do this, you need to create a will.

A will states who receives what in the event

of your death.

Anyone over 18

years old can

create a will.

According to the Public Trust, over 50%

of New Zealanders do not have a will.

Young people, aged from 25 to 39 years,

who are financially independent, feature

highly in this area, and yet they are a group

more likely to indulge in adventurous

holidays and take part in risky extreme

sports. Accumulated assets of this age

group might include a bike, car, TV, house,

and furniture, along with a vast range of

electronic and digital gear.

With the arrival of a family, having a

will in place is even more essential and yet,

according to the survey taken in 2014, only

30% of 25-40 year-olds, with children, have

a will in place.

A will not only legally takes care of the

property, and the monetary side of things

but can also state who will take care of

children in the event of an untimely death.

What happens if there is no will

The lack of a will can create problems

over who will benefit from the estate - this

is especially important if there are children,

de facto relationships, children from

previous relationships, family members

with addictions, or where a

business is involved.

Where there is no will, the

estate goes into ‘intestacy’,

which means a court will

appoint an administrator,

who does the same job as

an executor, to manage the

estate. The administrator has

the authority to act on behalf

of the deceased and applies

to the High Court for letters

of administration (power to

administrate the estate).

The Administration Act

1969 provides a code to be

followed that ensures the

estate is administered in order of priority.

org.nz)

Save time and money

Before meeting with your lawyer, and

to help save time and money, decide in

advance how you want to distribute your

will – determine who will receive what.

You can also create a DIY will online,

but if the distribution of your property is

complicated, you may need to contact a

lawyer for additional help.

For your will to be valid and legally

binding it must be signed in front of two

witnesses, who also must sign it. The

witnesses are not in any way responsible for

what is in the will or its execution.

Four steps to creating a will

1. Nominate an executor – the person

who will manage the distribution of your

property.

2. Choose how you want to be buried or

cremated, and how you want your funeral

to be held, i.e. small and private, at a

church, or in a garden. Make sure family or

friends know in advance what you want to

happen, as the reading of the will may not

be before the funeral.

3. Appoint a guardian/s for your

children (if under 18) and your pets.

Discuss this with prospective guardians,

so they are prepared and understand their

responsibility.

4. Decide who will receive what and how

much; this may include money, property,

and personal belongings, as well as selected

charities.

Dressing

your property

up for sale

First impressions

count from

the moment

potential buyers

view a property

from the street to

the moment they

walk through the

front door.

Your house is on the market and you hope to

get a good price. While market performance

will largely influence this, presenting your

home at its best will help.

First impressions count from the

moment potential buyers view a property

from the street to the moment they walk

through the front door.

Weed the garden, cut back unruly

shrubs and prune trees where needed. Kill

off weeds in the lawn, sprinkle grass seed

over bald patches and fertilise the lawn.

Indoors, tidy up. Get rid of excess or

bulky furniture, toys, books, hobby items

or fitness equipment and if too many

photos on the wall pack these away so the

home looks roomy.

If there is a gap or a room needs

enhancing, look at what you have. A piece

of furniture might be painted up or an

old leather bound book popped on the

coffee table. Shelves will also add depth

to a narrow space while mirrors may give

the illusion of a larger space. In entryways,

add an easy chair, small table, bookcase or

large vase.

Awkward spaces such as coved ceilings

in attics or upstairs rooms might be

converted into storage shelving and

the room given a purpose as an office,

playroom or extra bedroom so viewers can

see how the room might be used.

Stow possessions neatly in containers,

shelving or tidily in cupboards;

highlighting the storage potential within

the home, ensuring it is clean and tidy for

viewing at any time.

Move the pets outside as not all buyers

will be pet lovers while some may suffer

pet allergies putting them off a house if

they see a pet inside.

If parts of the house look tired, consider

renovating by painting walls, replacing

worn carpet, or modernising the kitchen,

bathroom and toilet; rooms that should

sparkle. Replace tired cabinetry, or the

benches and cupboard/drawer fronts then

update old toilets, showers or kitchen

appliances. Modernising these rooms can

lift the final selling price.

Use consistent and light paint colours

throughout for balance and seamlessness,

making the house appear more spacious.

An effect that is increased when walls and

curtains share the same or a similar colour.

Consider the personality and purpose

of a room. Bright colours lift living areas

especially if large and open. However,

bedrooms are suited to calmer softer

colours with just a touch of bold. Layer

bedding or use throws for effect along with

cushions or a stuffed toy in a children’s

room.

With curtaining, smaller patterns or

plain fabrics are the rule for smaller rooms

whereas larger patterns make spacious

areas cosier. If blinds or drapes are past

their best, replace these even if it is only

with neutral cotton curtains. The effect

will be worth it.

Eco-friendly features will also add value

for some buyers though not universally,

however earthy natural colours and

features are popular. Consider who your

target buyers are likely to be and what will

appeal to them.

Getting what

you paid for on

settlement day

In the movies, the day someone gets

the keys to their newly bought home is

portrayed as a golden, stress-free time. The

reality can be rather different, especially

if you find your dream home has turned

into something akin to Nightmare On

Elm Street since you agreed to buy it.

“The trick to a stress-free settlement

is to do as much as you can in advance,

starting with when you’re signing the sale

and purchase agreement,” advises Kevin

Lampen-Smith, chief executive of the

Real Estate Agents Authority (REAA).

“The sale and purchase agreement is the

legally-binding contract agreed between

you and the seller that details the property,

the conditions of sale and the price.

Make sure that there is an agreed list of

chattels, with notes as to their condition,

in this agreement. If the property is full of

rubbish, and you want it gone before you

take possession, make that a condition of

the sale. If there are holes in the fence that

the seller has promised to fix, get that in

writing on the agreement: don’t rely on

verbal assurances that something will be

done prior to settlement. It’s far better

to get all these niggly details sorted out

before you sign the agreement than face

protracted battles down the track.”

As a buyer, you are generally entitled to

one opportunity to inspect the property

before settlement day. If the property has

sitting tenants, ask your lawyer to ensure

there is a ‘final inspection’ clause inserted

in the sale and purchase agreement before

you sign it. This inspection is to make

sure that it is in the same or better order

it was when you viewed it and agreed to

the sale. It is not designed to give you the

chance to uncover new defects, or to give

a rental agent the chance to appraise the

place’s value.

“A seller does not have to accommodate

any extra requests to visit the property

prior to settlement,” Lampen-Smith says.

“Remember that the seller may have a

lot on their plate; making the property

available so your interior decorator can

measure up for new curtains is unlikely

to be a high priority.”

Your real estate agent will usually

arrange the inspection with the seller,

and accompany you to the property. Most

experts recommend that this inspection

takes place around 24 hours before

settlement day so there are no hold-ups

to the transfer of funds and ownership.

When you come to inspect the property,

everything should be as it was when you

decided to purchase it (as reflected by the

sale and purchase agreement). Lampen-

Smith says you can expect chattels to be in

a reasonable working order unless it has

been agreed and documented otherwise.

You cannot complain to the seller that

the oven isn’t clean enough, but you can

raise a complaint if it is missing, or it is

a different model to the one cited in the

agreement. Don’t forget to check that

garage door openers and pool covers are

in situ, or that locks work properly.

If there is a problem, the REAA says

you should speak to the real estate agent

and your lawyer in the first instance. They

can help you negotiate with the seller to

remedy any issues, such as a newly broken

window or missing keys. Your lawyer

should work with the seller’s lawyer to

reach a satisfactory solution, such as

getting the seller to make any necessary

repairs, or to deduct any costs from the

eventual settlement.

Making the final inspection 24 hours

before settlement is due gives you and the

seller time to reach an agreement over

anything outstanding. This is important,

because if you do not complete settlement

on the due date and the seller can

demonstrate that they were able and

willing to complete their side of the

settlement, then you will be liable for

interest on any portion of the purchase

price that is unpaid. The seller does not

need to give you access to the property

while any amount remains outstanding.

“Like any property transaction, success

often depends on doing things right at the

start,” Lampen-Smith says.

“Get the details right at the beginning

and you’ve got a greater chance of a happy

ending.”
