Page 4 Page 17 Family of gymnasts off to nationals Christchurch School of Gymnastics members Luke, 16, and twins Cole and Sian Stevens, 14, will compete against the country’s best at the New Zealand championships in Tauranga which start tomorrow. The siblings have been competing in gymnastics almost nine years. The trio said their QE II training base was like a second home. “We probably spend as much time there as we do at home,” Luke said. “This is where our friends are and it’s where we have always had fun,” Cole said. Luke and Cole train for 19 hours a week and Sian trains up to 30 hours a week. •Turn to page 14 Drop in Burwood land values blamed on quakes • By Georgia O’Connor-Harding THE FEBRUARY 22, 2011, quake is still having an impact on land values in Burwood. The Burwood East Residents’ Association has met with Christchurch East MP Poto Williams over the fall of land values in the area since 2007. Quotable Value figures showed Burwood had a 13 per cent drop in the land value portion of their capital value from 2007 to 2013 ($161,000 to $140,000). This then grew by six per cent between the 2013 and the 2016 revaluations to a median value of $148,500. Harcourts Gold New Brighton real estate agent Andrew Swift said the main cause was the earthquakes. He said areas of land in Burwood which are close to the river or waterways will be classified under the city council’s technical category three. Mr Swift said it is the least favourable type of land because it requires more investigation from an engineer before it can be built on. •Turn to page 4 2019 New Zealand Scenic Calendars Post now!
