No plans

to bring

parking

meters to

Brighton

– council

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

THERE ARE no plans to

put parking meters into New

Brighton.

The city council has assured

it won’t happen after an

online backlash caused by a

misunderstanding. A storm of

complaints were made on the

Peoples Independent Republic

of New Brighton Facebook

page after a city council map

was misinterpreted to mean the

area would get parking meters.

The map was part of its draft

suburban car parking policy.

City council head of planning

and strategic transport David

Griffiths said it has no plans to

bring meters in.

“It is correct we are reviewing

how to manage suburban

parking across the city, but the

introduction of on-street parking

charges would only be considered

if an area is having significant

parking issues,” he said.

Mr Griffiths said the city

council does not consider New

Brighton to have parking issues.

THAT’S ONE very familiar (albeit a bit

grizzled – sorry Garry!) face on page 1

today.

Garry Bombay is an institution when it

comes to policing in the eastern suburbs,

and more specifically in the Brighton area.

We report on his new role at the New Brighton station.

He’s grown up with a couple of generations of people – the

good and the bad, and those who do silly and stupid things and

step over the line, but then get back on track fairly quickly. No

doubt with some fairly straight forward police advice.

The fact Garry’s been based at one suburban station for

nearly 40 years suggests he’s done a pretty good job for the

community.

Improvements likely for bus hub

• By Julia Evans

MORE THAN $1 million has

been earmarked for a bus hub

and safety improvements outside

Eastgate Mall.

The money has been moved

from the balance of funding for

safety improvements from the

Buckleys Rd, Linwood Ave and

Aldwins Rd intersection following

the release of the Linwood-

Eastgate Area

Integrated

Transport

Study.

City councillor

Sara

Templeton said

people heading

Yani

Johanson

through the bus

stop “deserve

better” than its

current state

when the plan was approved during

Thursday’s council meeting.

“For many years we have

heard from the Linwood community

that the bus facilities on

Buckleys Rd are not appropriate.

It is the third busiest suburban

bus interchange in the city.”

However, Peter Jasper told

the city council residents along

the stretch of Buckleys Rd near

the bus stop found accessing to

their properties difficult due to

frequency of buses.

“It would be irresponsible

to spend ratepayer money on

more,” he said.

Mr Jasper said putting in a

de facto bus hub lacked “any

shred of commonsense and

common decency” towards

home owners and residents.

The bus stops in front of

Eastgate cater up to 30 buses

per hour and board up to 1500

passengers per day, rivalling

Northlands Shopping Centre.

Linwood Ward city councillor

Yani Johanson also questioned

whether taking the funding

from the intersection safety

improvement was the right thing

to do.

“The issue here is that we are

robbing a safety intersection

improvement that we publicly

consulted on during out LTP to

pay for a public transport hub

where there is still not a clear

idea about what that public

transport hub will look like.”

However, city council staff

said the safety improvements

had been completed and the $1.1

million was leftover.

Cr Johanson would not

support moving the funding

without public consultation

or before Environment

SAFETY: $1.1

million has

been set aside

for a new bus

hub outside

Eastgate Mall.

Canterbury’s Regional Public

Transport Plan had been

released as it could impact the

Eastgate area.

Staff said there was work that

could be done that “would not

be undone” following the plan’s

release and other construction

would not be done before the

plan was finalised.

“There is still a need for the

pedestrian crossing and other

safety measures to be undertaken

like tactiles, etc.”

First on the upgrade schedule

is a signalised crossing between

bus stops on Buckleys Rd, staff

said.

No pay parking plans in Brighton

•From page 1

The concerns were raised

after the city council approved

its draft suburban car parking

policy for public consultation.

The city council is reviewing

parking management,

particularly on-street parking,

to help prioritise public space.

In the report on the draft

policy, there was a map of the

city labelled “suburban areas

with high on-street parking

demand and time limit

restrictions”.

New Brighton, Hornby,

Lyttelton and Papanui,

along with shopping areas

in Riccarton, Merivale, near

the airport and Canterbury

University, were shown as key

activity centres for this.

The map prompted New

Brighton residents to believe

the suburb would get parking

meters.

Complaints on the Facebook

page included “stupidest idea

I have ever heard”; “what a

bloody joke”; and “right fellow

Brightarions . . . prepare for

battle!”.

But Mr Griffiths said the

map illustrated areas where

time limit restrictions (p60

and p120) had already been

introduced and therefore may

have indicated where there is

demand for parking.

“The map does not identify

areas where parking meters are

proposed,” he said.

Guardians of Rawhiti

co-founder Cathy Baker,

who made the original post

online, said she was happy

there were no plans to put

meters in.

NO COST: The city council has quelled concerns that it

planned to introduce parking charges in New Brighton.

Palmers Rd design approved

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A LONG “drawn-out” process

has led to final designs to

upgrade Palmers Rd.

The Coastal -Burwood Community

Board has made several

changes to designs which will

see Palmers Rd (Bowhill Rd /

New Brighton Rd) narrowed to

10m to make it safer.

The road

has been a

concern for

residents with

12 crashes

reported

between 2005

and 2016.

About 20

David East

residents

attended the

board meeting last week expressing

their concerns over the

new design.

The plan will include new kerb

alignments, landscaping, surface

treatments, parking restrictions

and line markings.

The board decided the intersection

of New Brighton and

Palmers Rd including the traffic

island will remain as it is.

It also decided to narrow the

Palmers/Bowhill Rd intersection

to 10m wide as oppose to staff

recommendation of 9m.

Deputy chairman Tim Sintes

said it has been “quite a drawnout”

issue with there having to

be several meetings with city

council staff before reaching a

compromise.

“It hasn’t pleased everybody

but I think it has pleased the

majority,” he said.

City councillor David East

said he would have preferred

Palmers Rd to be 12m.

“We got 10m which is a bit

of a compromise but my own

personal thought is it is still a bit

narrow,” he said.

He said Palmers Rd should

not be listed as a local road in

the city’s district plan as it is the

main exit from North Beach to

New Brighton Rd.

“Particularly when we

are talking about tsunami

evacuation and earthquake

evacuation having a really

narrow road was going to be a

disaster,” he said.

Board member Tim Baker

said city council planner staff

SAFETY:

The Coastal-

Burwood

Community

Board has

final tick of

approval

Palmers Rd

got it right the first time.

The staff recommendation was

to narrow Palmers Rd to 9m.

“You think you need 10m to

turn around a corner. What a

load or rubbish, 9m is plenty,”

Mr Baker said.

His vote was recorded against

having the road narrowed to

10m.

Desk job for long-serving cop

•From page 1

After a short stint in

Wellington and Christchurch

central, Senior Constable

Bombay was shifted out to New

Brighton.

“You choose a career, you stick

at it, and before you know it the

time sneaks up on you,” he said.

Senior Constable Bombay

said he has always liked the

east side of

the city and

there are good

people in New

Brighton, which

is why he has

stayed there so

long.

“Why do

Garry Bombay

people keep the

same old cars?

It is what you are comfortable

with. You know the issues, you

know the people, you make your

contacts, it is good,” he said.

But Senior Constable Bombay

doesn’t think much has changed

in the suburb since he first

started out.

“Same crime, different time, is

what I say . . . every area has its

own characters who come to

your attention on a regular basis.

New Brighton has their share but

they are good people at heart,”

he said.

CHALLENGING: Senior Constable Garry Bombay’s career has included the 1981 Springbok tour

and searching for murdered Ashburton teenager Kirsty Bentley.

He said the most important

part of his role is to “treat

others how you would like to be

treated.”

“It doesn’t matter if they are on

the other side of the law or not,”

he said.

After 41 years in the police,

Senior Constable Bombay has

seen significant events.

He had been in the job four

years when he worked in crowd

control as part of the 1981

Springbok tour – where New

Zealand police were armed with

batons and helmets for the first

time in the country’s history to

control protesters.

“I don’t really hold any strong

political views myself. I had to do

what my job was and uphold the

law as directed at the time

. . . you protected the supporters

of the tour as well as the

protesters,” Senior Constable

Bombay said.

He said he did not think there

would be anywhere else in the

world where the country’s whole

police got together and worked

as one.

“We were just transported

from one part of the country to

the next for every sort of protest

that was going on . . . it was

quite an experience for a young

policeman in those days.”

THe February 22, 2011,

earthquake “was a big

moment’’ for Senior Constable

Bombay.

He had to deal with his own

home in Dallington destroyed,

and the grim police work that

followed the deadly quake.

For three months following

the earthquake he was involved

in body recovery and victim

identification.

“It was a big moment in our

lives . . . but that is part of our

job, you get conditioned to that

over the years,” he said.

Not only has Senior Constable

Bombay worked in community

policing, about a year ago he

retired from his role of a logistics

manager for the police’s search

and rescue squad.

He was involved in the

squad for about 30 years and

assisted the CIB on homicides

including searching for murdered

Ashburton teenager Kirsty

Bentley.

Senior Constable Bombay

said although it has been a high

demanding job, there has been

some cases where people have

gone missing and been found

alive and well.

“THat is always a great success

story,” he said.

Senior Constable Bombay has

also used his role in the police to

help the wider community.

In 2009, he arranged for

New Brighton police to cycle

from the West Coast to the city

to help the former Central New

Brighton School raise about

$15,000 to keep its swimming

pool open.

“THat made the pool very

financial, they had money to

spare but then the earthquake

came along and kicked us in the

guts. It is gone now,” he said.

Woolston Fire Station opened

THE NEW Woolston Fire

Station has been officially

opened, it is the third of six

stations to be rebuilt.

Fire and Emergency chairman

Paul Swain, who opened

the station, said the February

22, 2011, earthquake devastated

the city’s fire stations.

“This modern station is

another step in redeveloping

the metropolitan city’s entire

network of fire stations.”

The new Woolston station

was built on the site of the

former station at a total cost of

$6.9 million. More than 900

piles were driven in to strengthen

the site, which is 1.2m higher

than it was before.

It features two appliance

bays, six single bedrooms, a

gym, kitchen and lounge and

purpose-built dirty-to-clean

zones.

There, firefighters could bag

smoke-contaminated gear in a

negative pressure environment

before showering to prevent

carcinogen transfer into clean

living and work areas.

The station also has a vehicle

fume management system, a

hose that connects to vehicle

exhausts, so the appliance bay

would not fill with fumes from

appliances coming and going.

The Woolston crew moved

back to the station in mid-June,

before work was completed.

Fire and Emergency

Christchurch metro area

manager Dave Stackhouse

said the rebuild programme

“represents a significant

organisational investment.”

“[it] has provided us with a

unique opportunity to build

a future-proofed network

pre-earthquake number.

The city council needs to do

better. What else could be done?

Some suggestions that could be

discussed:

1. Building plans could be donated

to a housing trust website

where they would be available for

anyone to use. The city council

would only need to check the

recession planes, foundation

requirements and outdoor living.

This must save costs.

2. Make minor residential units

and family flats more affordable

to build. A unit can be built on

a large percentage of existing

properties in the city. Lower the

contribution fees – currently

they are $13,000 upwards. Lower

the cost of consents. Why does

decking 2km from the beach

need to have stainless screws and

fittings? That’s 33 cents each for

screws.

3. A minor residential unit and

family flat (second smaller house/

flat) say 36m 2 could be built for

about $80,000 in total, with help

from the city council by reducing

its fees and sharing building

plans. A condition could be that,

if it is rented, the rent would be

capped. This would be good for

the city council, as the affordable

housing shortage in the city

would lessen.

4. The establishment of a

smaller dwelling construction

company working with the city

council would be economical as

a business.

5. Why does an engineer and

a building inspector have to

inspect foundations at the same

time at twice the cost? If a foundation

for the worst section on

TC3 land is designed, then do we

need foundations’ designed for

every plan? Let’s make smaller

housing simple and affordable to

build.

to an upgrade over the

Gary

spite of possible

opposition to the

closure during

a school holiday

period, it is a

positive and

pro-active move.

Christchurch

Ltd’s upgrades to this venue,

including mini tramps, spinning

toys, seating and wind buffers,

if completed by the second week

of the holidays, would ensure a

modern facility for the benefit of

A reader responds to the

article about the cleaning

regime at New Brighton

Pier

UNPOPULAR:

The behaviour of

some anglers on

New Brighton Pier

continues to cause

issues. ​

Caron O’Connor – I don’t

like people fishing on the pier at

New Brighton as they take over

the whole end bit (even though

there’s markings on the concrete

telling them to keep clear for

sightseers). So based

on this, I feel they

have a lack of respect

for others and need to

be banned from the

pier.

I don’t fish and

find the atmosphere,

the smell, even

the rough attitude

of the fishermen

horrible. When I

walk on the pier, my goal is to

enjoy the pleasant atmosphere

and reach the end of the pier

and look out to sea. But it is

dominated by uncouth fishing

people, and yes it does make me

mad, because why should they

take-over the pier when it is for

the public? They seem to think it

is theirs.

That’s my impression, for what

it’s worth.

Plan for red zone close to release

• By Julia Evans

THE DRAFT plan for the future

of the red zone is expected to be

made public before the end of

the year.

In its quarterly report, Regenerate

Christchurch revealed the

draft Otakaro Avon River Corridor

Regeneration Plan would be

made public by late-December.

“Regenerate Christchurch advises

the draft Regeneration Plan

is forecast to be publicly notified

between mid-November and

late-December,” the report said.

Once released and public feedback

gathered, the draft plan will

then be approved by Minister for

Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Megan Woods before it is

finalised.

It comes after The Star

revealed Regenerate had spent

nearly $500,000 on the exhibition

used to gather public

feedback which will develop the

draft plan.

“There are always costs involved

with public engagement

but, given the scale and longterm

significance of our work,

we believe this investment is

important to ensure our work is

informed by the views and aspirations

of the community,” chief

executive Ivan Iafeta said.

He said the five-week

exhibition and engagement was

one of the “most significant”

public engagements since the

earthquakes.

The money was spent on interactive

displays, the design and

printing of the panels, lease and

fit-out of the exhibition space

in Cashel St, an online version

of the exhibition, the travelling

exhibition, printing and advertising,

project management, and

ambassadors.

It is estimated developing the

red zone would cost $800 million

over 30 years.

That includes $153 million for

the 11km green spine, which

emerged as the favourite option

from the exhibition. The red

zone is expected to bring billions

of dollars in to the economy.

REVEAL: Regenerate Christchuch’s draft plan for the future

of the red zone will be released in November or December.

ECan in bid to recover yacht removal costs

• By Sophie Cornish

IT TOOK five hours and $5000

to remove a yacht stranded on

New Brighton beach.

At 3am on Wednesday, Environment

Canterbury, city council

and a team from Protranz

Earthmoving Ltd began dismantling

the yacht.

The yacht ran aground on

September 12, when it’s former

owner Sean Grant jumped overboard,

after it is believed he ran

out of fuel.

The job, which was done early

due to tide conditions and fewer

people being on the beach, took

five hours to complete.

ECan zone manager Christchurch

West Melton Banks Peninsula

Steve Firth said the removal

came after several attempts to

have the owner of the yacht arrange

its removal, which didn’t

happen.

Previously, Mr Grant attempted

to sell the yacht ‘as is, where is’

on Facebook Marketplace with

an asking price of $1.

It is not clear who the new

owner is.

Said Mr Firth: “The owner attempted

to sell the yacht, which

led to confusion as to who the

legal owner was with a few people

all claiming to own it. It was

important to clarify who legally

owned it, as the removal of the

boat and associated cost, which is

about $5000, is the responsibility

of the boat owner.”

ECan has paid for the cost of

the removal and are in discussions

with the owner over this.

Delaying the removal was no

longer an option, said Mr Firth,

as it was a health and safety

risk to the public and had the

potential to result in adverse

environmental effects.

“We were conscious that if it

stayed there any longer it might

break up, which is potentially

hazardous for anyone on the

The yacht was then taken

to Kate Valley to be disposed

of.

Webber said about eight staff

were needed to pull apart the

yacht.

RICHMOND’S ELLA Warren

thought the Christchurch Art

Gallery was a pretty cool place

to be during the school holidays.

And that’s because the St

Albans Catholic Primary School

pupil wanted to paint some masterpieces

of her own.

From now until Sunday –

along with Labour Day weekend

– anyone can go into the space

and pick up a paintbrush to help

create a massive piece of public

art on the Art Gallery’s walls.

Titled Wall to Wall, the event

presents the opportunity to be

involved in a “colossal public

paint-out” of one of the downstairs

galleries.

“This is where the art starts,”

acting Art Gallery director Amy

Harrington said.

Ms Harrington said the next

famous work that would be

hanging in the art gallery in 20

years could be done by some of

the young artists decorating the

walls today.

The art gallery was painting

over the four walls every day to

make space for new creations.

“So everyone gets their chance

to paint,” she said.

The space was proving so

popular, Ms Harrington said

there are lines out the door most

mornings.

The exhibition is open from

11am to 4pm every day.

“We are encouraging everyone

to grab a brush and bring your

perspective to this special art

space,” Ms Harrington said.

“We aim to create an immersive

gallery where everyone – no

matter your age – can take a collaborative

approach to art.”

The work comes in conjunction

with the opening of SCAPE

season, which opened on Friday

Age is no barrier to city cycling

Fire rages, homes at risk

EACH DAY in Christchurch

thousands of people use bicycles

for their commute, for fitness,

or just for fun. An increasing

number of those people are of

advancing years.

St Albans retiree Jean Bell

returned to cycling last year after

a long period without a bike. “I

was encouraged to try an e-bike,

and I was soon hooked on it,”

she said.

“It’s just so handy,” Jean explained.

“I’m surprised by how far I can

cycle when in the car the same

distance feels like a long way.’’

Visiting friends, attending

meetings, hairdresser and doctor

appointments – Jean travels to

them all by bike.

“It’s much easier to park my

bike than park the car,” she said.

“Now, driving with just one

person in my car feels decadent;

a bit naughty.”

The city’s geography

lends itself to getting around by

bike.

“Unlike Wellington or Auckland,

in Christchurch you have

a choice – cycle on the flat or

test yourself on the Port Hills,”

explains Julie Milne, who recently

cycled the length of New

Zealand to raise awareness of

stroke sufferers.

Julie rides to work year-round

on her modified bicycle; two

childhood strokes left her with

restricted arm movement.

“Cycling is my physical upkeep,”

she said.

“It improves my quality of getting

older. If I don’t bike, I seize

up, which then means I can’t

bike. So, I keep biking.”

Julie will be sharing her experiences

at the NZ Bike Expo

(Saturday and Sunday).

This cornerstone event of

the Biketober festival is where

cyclists of all ages can gather to

celebrate the cycle.

“The expo brings the cycling

industry and the Christchurch

community together,” said event

organiser Krissy O’Connor.

“It places cycling events, test

rides, and community groups

alongside commercial exhibitors.

It’s a very hands-on weekend of

everything bike-related.”

For Christchurch residents

who perhaps haven’t explored

much of the new-look central

city, Saturday’s Pedal into Spring

extravaganza of Biketober offers

twelve themed, self-guided rides

to choose from. Cafés, shops,

playgrounds, art, a family treasure

hunt – there’s a route for all ages.

“If you haven’t been on a bike

for a while,” says Julie Milne,

“start on a cycleway and go from

there. You’re safe. Cycling is

lovely.”

Young footballers reach

tournament semi-final

• By Jacob Page

THE COASTAL Spirit 11th

grade football team finished

third at their South Island

tournament in Nelson last week.

The team won six games, drew

one and lost one during their

campaign.

They drew against eventual

winners Nelson White 1-1 in

pool-play before losing 1-0 to

Nomads in the semi-final thanks

to a penalty.

The team scored 28 goals and

conceded just five in pool-play.

Coach Alistair Sim said the

team played to their strengths.

“We aren’t a big team so we

had to rely on our accurate

passing and technical skill on

the ball,” he said.

“We tried not to concede

corners and stay away from that

physical style of game.

“Defensively, I was really

happy with how the team

went as we had to keep our

composure, particularly in the

play-off games.”

Sim said many of the team

have played together for the past

two seasons and previously won

the International Cup together.

“That familiarity helped get

the team on track,” he said.

“We had expectations of

finishing near the pointy-end of

the 24-team tournament, and

perhaps if things had gone our

way we would have won.”

Sim said the aim was to give

the players the best possible

pathway to play mainland

premier league football in the

coming years.

“They’re a very talented bunch

of boys so if we can bring them

through the club, we should have

some good first team players in

the coming years.”

SHIFT

to a

career

inTech

4352

New full-time Tech jobs

created in NZ in the last year

*2017 TIN report

Looking for a career change? Tech is New Zealand’s third-largest export sector

and is growing fast, with over 9000 new jobs expected to be created over the

next two years*. To fuel this growth, NZ needs more people with a grounding

in tech to meet the rapid expansion within this exciting and varied area, which

crosses into many industries.

*NZ Tech Digital Skills Survey 2017

The SHIFT programme

#TechIsWhereItsAt

@SIGNALICT

SHIFT is an innovative industry-driven programme for those who are seeking a new career path who may not have a

tech background. Open to degree holders in any discipline, SHIFT learners have come from diverse backgrounds such

as medicine, philosophy, sociology, commerce, geography, marketing, engineering and humanities. Available in both

Christchurch and Dunedin, this one-year programme offers relevant and current content skills to ensure you are well

equipped to work within the tech area, where the skills you have learnt in previous work and study are highly valued.

Graduates outcome to date include an 85% employment rate.

Tech jobs exist in every industry,

from aviation to zoology.

Combine ANY DEGREE

with the innovative SHIFT

programme and kickstart your

new career today.

SHIFT uses immersive studio-based learning and real-world industry experience to produce graduates with a solid

base of core computing skills, as well as communication and employability skills required in today’s collaborative

workplaces. SHIFT includes several opportunities to meet and work with local tech industry employers, and includes

industry visits, group projects designed and

mentored by industry, and a 200-hour industry

placement, where you work within the organisation

on a curated project to add value to your host, and

to showcase your capabilities.

Opportunities

With tech roles existing in nearly every area from

aviation to zoology, career possibilities are extensive.

Through the SHIFT programme, learners can focus

on software design and development, or allied

roles, such as business analyst, data scientist, web

designer, project manager, user experience designer,

technical writer, sales and client support . . . and the

list goes on.

Diversity of background and experiences is

welcomed in the tech sector. It is strongly recognised that it takes many viewpoints to best design products that meet

customer requirements, and tech firms are actively recruiting to address gender and ethnic imbalances across their

employees.

The next SHIFT intake commences Feb 2019 and scholarships are available.

Call SIGNAL today on 0800 990 024 and start your shift into NZ’s fastest-growing sector.

SHIFT

2017

SIGNAL’s SHIFT programme transitions graduates

from any discipline into tech. Many new and mature

graduates are considering tech as a viable and lucrative

career option, and this is increasing as the range

of roles within tech becomes more widely known.

Isaac’s Story

With a Masters in Geology and 10 years experience

working in the mining industry, Isaac re-assessed his

career goals, wanting a career that was more flexible

and portable.

“I saw the SHIFT programme as an exciting opportunity

to add specific tech skills to my knowledge base, so

I can translate those skills into a new career.” For his

industry project, Isaac worked with Stantec NZ to

represent aerial drone footage.

“The school-friendly course hours allowed me to

carry on with my before and after school duties and

this has really helped my family and career. I now

have a fantastic role with fast growing tech company

Seequent.”

Jessica’s Story

Jessica is a qualified and experienced radiation

therapist who is changing direction into tech because

of the increasing connection between medicine and

technology. SHIFT is adding tech to Jessica’s existing

clinical experience, while working with real clients from

Dunedin’s tech sector.

Jessica’s first group project involved working with Kylie

Robinson and the team from Igtimi, and her latest

group project has been developing an app for Otago

Museum. “The project work has really extended my

knowledge into areas I would never have considered

working in just a few months ago, but now I feel like

I can tackle diverse problems and definitely create

solutions. It has been challenging but very rewarding!”
