Consent

granted

to build

Pak’nSave

in Papanui

• By Ashleigh Monk

RESOURCE CONSENT has been

granted for a Pak’nSave to be built

near the intersection of Main

North and Northcote Rds.

Building is expected to start at

171 Main North Rd in the next

few months, and will take up to

12-18 months to complete.

The proposed Northcote Entertainment

Sports Terminal was

set to be built at the site but the

supermarket will go there instead.

Foodstuffs head of external relations

Antoinette Laird said the

site was chosen because Papanui

is an “up-and-coming” area.

“The Main North Rd site will

service a growing and exciting

community,” she said.

“We’re pretty sure the new

Pak’nSave will be a real asset to

the community.”

A Pak’nSave branded petrol

station will also be built on the

site.

Said Ms Laird: “There are many

factors to take into account when

developing a project of this scale.

With every new store we look

to incorporate features which

celebrate the area in terms of look

and feel.”

Green light for bus priority project

• By Ashleigh Monk

THE CONTROVERSIAL Main

North Rd bus priority project

has been approved by the city

council.

The $1.8 million project was

approved on Thursday. It will

see 24-hour bus and bike lanes

put in along Main North Rd,

except for a stretch from Harewood

Rd to

Winston Ave.

Papanui-

member John

Stringer said

he was “disappointed”

by the

decision.

“The rights of

faster bus and bike commuting

through our community to save

40sec to a few minutes has been

ideologically elevated above the

practical local needs of Papanui

people,” he said.

“Our village is being transformed

from a local shopping

precinct into a rapid-transit

commuter corridor. Inevitably

there will be pedestrian accidents

as a result.”

and the change would affect

elderly residents.

“They will no longer be able to

cross a much busier Main North

Rd safely with three to five lanes

of north-south traffic.”

But community board member

Mike Davidson said the decision

struck the right balance

for road users and businesses.

“This decision has been a long

time in the making and I know

it is never easy to bring in new

transport projects that are not

used by the majority of people

but still extremely important for

the city,” Mr Davidson said.

“We know that with expected

“thrilled” with the decision.

“The efforts of the community

“My problem is that there

is a distinct lack of evidence

that these bus lanes will actually

In Brief

Fire rages, homes at risk

BELFAST BRIDGE

One-lane traffic has opened on

the new Belfast Rd bridge. Road

users were able to use the bridge

for first time yesterday, and the

Christchurch Northern Corridor

Alliance team expect to have

both lanes open on November 3.

The remaining work is weather

dependent, and a 30km/h speed

limit will remain in place until the

bridge has been completed.

PLUNKET ROOM WORK

Work has re-started on the

Redwood Plunket rooms, which

are being repaired following

earthquake damage. Significant

cracking on the walls and ceiling

will be fixed before the building

is opened again. The project

is expected to be completed

this month but was originally

scheduled to be finished in June. It

was delayed due to the discovery of

black mould, which increased the

cost of the project by $25,000.

SPEED LIMIT STAYS

The speed limit in the Prestons

subdivision will remain at 50km/h.

The Coastal- Burwood and

Papanui-Innes community boards

voted not to lower the speed limit

to 40km/h after the city council

identified that reducing the limit

was appropriate. The existing

school speed zones will remain in

place.

City woman leads young farmers

• By Ashleigh Monk

and Emily O’Connell

A ST Albans woman has become

the first female chief executive of

New Zealand Young Farmers.

Tech-savvy businesswoman

Lynda Coppersmith, 48, took up

the position on October 1 and said

her first week was “very busy.”

“I’ve been learning a lot – I’m

at brain-saturation point I think,

but it’s been great to talk to

everybody and understand the

business.”

Ms Coppersmith said she had

been out of the primary industries

for more than six years, and

was pleased to be back.

“I really enjoyed my time

when I worked in the industry.

It’s something that’s in your

blood, and you get quite passionate

about it,” she said.

“Having grown a few leadership

skills in the meantime, I

thought this looked like a great

opportunity to get back into the

industry.”

She said she was “chuffed” to

be the first woman to hold the

chief executive position at NZ

Young Farmers.

“I think every time we see

more diversity and women

getting more senior roles in organisations,

it’s a win. It brings a

different perspective to what we

do, and I think that’s great.”

She was looking forward to

visiting clubs and drumming

up interest in farming for young

people.

“I’m keen to understand

who young farmers are, what’s

important to them, what they’re

worried about, what they’re

excited about and that kind of

thing,” she said.

“I think that’s a really important

role that we play, and I can

see there are opportunities to

grow that further, to look at filling

that gap and meet the target

of getting an extra 50,000 people

into the industry.”

With the deadline for Youth

MP applications closing, I’ve

talk to students about why they

Before becoming a Member of

people in talking about the issues

challenging us, and I updated

to back my proposal for a crossparty

group to focus on mentalhealth

outcomes independent of

the Parliamentary cycle.

I enjoyed bringing National’s

globally. I enjoy showcasing what

we do well and giving people

the opportunity to sit down with

relevant policy makers to discuss

Fire rages, homes at risk

Problem trees in dispute

• By Ashleigh Monk

HAREWOOD RESIDENTS are

struggling with troublesome oak

trees while the city council is

unsure whose responsibility it is

to pay for their removal.

Graeme and Diane Barber have

lived in their Cam Pl home since

1983 – but

shortly after

they moved in,

six oak trees

were planted

in Pasadena

Reserve, which

have now

grown to 16m

Sam

MacDonald

and block their

sun.

In the

original plans, a road was

supposed to run through the

reserve and this led to confusion

over whether the oaks are

deemed street trees or reserve

trees.

If they are reserve trees, the

city council would be responsible

for the cost of removing them,

but if they are street trees it

would be up to residents to pay.

Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

chairman Sam MacDonald said

the board has requested city

council staff investigate the issue.

“Normally these things can

be turned around in a week, but

because of the technical nature

of this, I just wanted to paint the

full picture, so it’ll take about six

weeks.”

“It’s on a bit of disputed land,

and we’re just trying to get some

clarity around what the process

is and how we manage that,” he

said.

Mr Barber said he has battled

the city council over the trees for

the last decade.

“They’re in the wrong place

and have grown too large. Why

do the needs and well-being of

people overshadow the needs of a

healthy tree?”

He said the trees could grow

up to 24m – the equivalent of an

eight-story building.

“They wouldn’t build

something that tall next to

people’s houses, so why are they

allowing the trees to be there?”

he said.

He said arborists occasionally

pruned the trees, but it wasn’t

enough.

“Their maintenance cycle is a

lot less than what is needed here.

If you complain, you see a flurry

of activity and then it stops,” he

said.

“They’re the wrong trees in

the wrong place, and they can’t

be fixed unless you take them

down.”

A similar problem has also

arisen in Upper Riccarton. The

residents of Villa Grove wanted

the city council to remove 22 oak

trees, which were 24-years-old

and ranged between 8.1-15.8m

high.

However, the Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board declined to go ahead with

residents’ request to have the

trees removed, and resolved to

continue with maintenance.

CITY COUNCILLOR Aaron

Keown could finally see

traffic lights installed at a

Bishopdale intersection as public

consultation on the project gets

the green light.

The city council voted on

Thursday to send options out

for consultation to either install

traffic lights

at the Breens,

Harewood and

Gardiners Rds

intersection,

or to introduce

a signalised

crossing to

Aaron Keown

Harewood Rd

and reduce it to

one lane.

Cr Keown has been campaigning

to have lights installed at the

Breens, Harewood and Gardiners

Rds intersection for two-anda-half

years.

“It goes out for consultation

now, but the preferred option for

council is cutting off Harewood

Rd – they’re basically just going

to try and talk people out of

choosing the traffic lights.”

He said he felt confident that

the majority of submissions

would be in favour of the traffic

lights, but he expected the

city council to try and slow the

process.

“The problem is it won’t just

go to the community board and

then to council, as is the normal

process. It will also have to go

to the Infrastructure, Transport

and Environment Committee.

It’s just another chance for the

council to block it.”

While the majority of city

councillors voted for the proposal,

Cr Keown said he was

“disappointed” that councillors

Tim Scandrett, Pauline Cotter

and Phil Clearwater were against

it.

“That’s how dirty politics operates,

sometimes you just can’t get

wins with certain people.”

He said the opposed councillors

focused on the lack of available

funding for traffic lights, but

he was sure the money could be

found in the Annual Plan.

“I think people will come forward

and say ‘don’t spend money

on stupid statues or a park or a

swimming pool, we want it spent

on traffic lights’,” he said.

“To be honest, with the cost

of the council blocking this

project we would have probably

already paid for the traffic lights.

Board chairman Sam

MacDonald said he hoped the

city council would listen to what

the public wanted.

“The council now have bought

into the process of letting the

public tell them what they want

at this intersection, so for them

at the end of this to block it

would be completely unacceptable,”

he said.

“From the meeting on

Thursday there’s a green light

that this intersection is going to

Bus changes: Striking the right balance

Papanui-Innes Community

Board members Mike

Davidson and Emma

Norrish write about the

proposed Main North Rd

bus priority project

THE PAPANUI-Innes

Community Board recently made

recommendations to the city

council on the Main North Rd

bus priority project.

As Papanui Ward

representatives on the board, it

was important for us that this

project struck the right balance

between the local community

(both residential and business)

and bus users.

This is a busy public transport

corridor and 80 per cent of the

bus passengers are Christchurch

residents.

The recent proposal to cut

community bus routes in

our ward by Environment

Canterbury, and the resulting

outcry from the community,

showed the importance people

put on the Christchurch bus

service. But unfortunately bus

patronage is low and this needs

to improve to ensure that this

does not happen again.

One way to increase patronage

is to improve journey time

reliability, which was the aim of

TRANSPORT PLAN: Papanui-Innes Community Board members Mike Davidson and Emma

Norrish share their thoughts on the Main North Rd bus priority project.

this project. Unfortunately, there

have been a number of comments

made publicly that have been

incorrect and it is important to

set the record straight.

The project was estimated to

create journey time savings of

between 3min 20sec and 4min

20sec between Harewood Rd and

Sawyers Arms Rd.

An amendment moved and

seconded by the two of us

recommends to the city council

that the north-bound bus lane

starts at Winston Ave.

This amendment will mean

nine car parks are retained. It

does reduce the journey time

savings by 40sec, but we believe

this was a good compromise.

The north-bound bus lane, if

approved, will now extend from

Winston Ave to Grassmere St

with a reduction of only seven

car parks.

The main change on the south

side between Grassmere St and

Horner St was the removal

of six car parks to extend the

length of the current bus stop.

This decision was approved

unanimously by the board.

There have been comments

made that only four car parks

would be left; this is incorrect –

the actual amount of car parks

retained will be eight.

It is fair to say the consultation

results were mixed, with people

supporting, or supporting with

concerns, or against.

What came through very

clearly from the consultation

though, were two clear issues:

The car parking between

Harewood Rd and Winston

Ave, and the Grassmere St

intersection.

The project team made

significant changes to this

intersection following the

consultation, which resulted

in the intersection becoming

signalised and retaining all

turning movements. The board

unanimously accepted this

outcome.

With the inclusion of the

amendment the board passed the

Main North Rd Bus Lane Priority

project 5-1.

This outcome sends a clear

message that although we

support the need for good public

transport infrastructure, we

listen to what our community

tells us. Our community is made

up of people who both supported

and opposed this project, and

we were never going to please

everyone, but we believe the best

recommendation has been made

to the city council.

SCRUFFY TREES surrounding

the city’s Ronald McDonald

House have been tidied up.

Beaver Tree Service Ltd

donated its time and skills

recently to help trim the trees,

along with removing deadwood

and hazardous branches from

around the building.

The company brought smiles

to children at the house with

lead arborist David McKeich

climbing the trees in a beaver

suit.

Office manager Belinda

Henderson said it decided to

do the work free of charge after

Installed from

$1,990 incl GST

Ronald McDonald phoned up

asking for a quote to have its

trees tidied.

“It means it doesn’t come out

of their budget, they can use it

for something else,” she said.

Beaver also supports social

enterprise and non-profit

organisation, B1G1, which helps

feed impoverished children

throughout New Zealand.

In about 2013, the company

sponsored a room at Ronald

McDonald House that allowed

families to stay for free.

Bryce Robb has also taken part

In 2015, Mr Robb abseiled

down the Les Mills building in

a beaver suit to help raise funds

for the Foundation for Youth

Development.

The foundation is a not-forprofit

organisation managing

youth development programmes,

including Kiwi Can, Project K

and Stars.

“As a company we like to help

out where we can and we think

it is really good for our staff to

get involved in that as well,” Mrs

History of making money in Papanui

Papanui Heritage group

chairman Murray Williams

writes about the ups

and downs of the area’s

economy

PAPANUI IS a settlement that

owes its origin to the native

bush that was located in the area

between modern day Vagues and

Langdons Rds.

However, this relatively small

forested area was exhausted

by 1857 due to the insatiable

demand for construction timber

and firewood of the settlers in

nearby Christchurch.

The Papanui population then

stagnated but the local economy

eventually recovered as it was

realised that, if the swampy cut

over land was drained, there

was a possibility for a brighter

future based on agriculture and

horticulture.

In the 1860s, Francis Sisson

built up significant land holdings

and a flourishing orchard

business, and effectively founded

a horticultural dynasty in the

MORE THAN $76,000 has been

earmarked for the rejuvenation of

an 1899 St Albans villa.

Up to $76,342 will be spent on

the villa in Ranfurly St.

Built by the Soanes brothers,

Henry and Philip,

to showcase

their design and

building skills,

the double brick

return bay villa

retains much of

Phil

Clearwater

the original form

and character.

The city

council’s social,

community development and

housing committee has approved

grants for a range of other

projects in the city ranging from

$5136 to nearly $90,000.

The proposed grants will cover

maintenance and repairs, along

Papanui area.

Nola Murfitt (née Sisson),

Francis Sisson’s great-granddaughter,

has vivid memories of

living and working on a family

owned orchard in the 1930s and

with upgrade and conservation

work.

Langdons Rd

The business almost foundered

during the depression. Nola

recalled that on some occasions

apples were dumped, although

the main problem was the high

level of debt taken on to acquire

the property in more prosperous

times in the 1920s.

However, even in the depths

of depression, the demand for

black currants remained strong

and Nola’s job, even as an 11

and 12-year-old, was to organise

groups of children in harvesting

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

demand for apples during the

war years, profitability remained

marginal due to the need to keep

up the steep mortgage payments.

Eventually a Government offer

to buy the land for state housing

was gratefully accepted.

In 1949, Nola shifted to Rangiora

as a consequence of her

marriage to Frank Murfitt, a race

horse trainer based in that area.

The couple had a family of four

daughters and, after the death

of her husband, Nola returned

to her roots in Papanui and is

currently a resident at a local

retirement home.

Nola still retains vivid memories

of her life on the orchard and

fondly remembers her school

experiences and the making of

enduring friendships at Waimairi

School and Papanui Technical

College.

She also recalls summer holidays

when the family would load

their picnic lunches (and several

barrels of beer) on to a truck and

head for Stewarts Gully for a big

day out.

Plan for red zone

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.

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.

Trying out artistic skills

RICHMOND’S ELLA Warren

(right) 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

Public Art’s 20th anniversary

season, which opened on Friday

and will run for six weeks.

The trust has installed 216

temporary artworks and 14

permanent artworks in the city,

since its formation in 1998.

Some of the most notable

works include Nucleus by

Phil Price on the corner of

Manchester, High and Lichfield

Sts, Fanfare by Neil Dawson at

Chaneys Corner and Passing

Time by Anton Parsons on

Madras St.

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.”

with the young fans.

“It was great to meet the

we do,” Burleigh said.

“This group was really

the knowledge we passed

on will help them get the

Papanui rider

wins his

age group

• By Jacob Page

RYAN MACLEOD pedalled past

his rivals to win the under-16

boys title at the national road

cycling championships at Loburn

last week.

The talented 15-year-old

from Papanui High School made

four attack attempts before

finally securing the break he

needed to go on and win the

His time of

52min 53sec was more than 1sec

“I’d ridden the track a few

times in the week before the race

just to see where the best places

to attack were and it worked out,”

he said. Ryan said his plan for

the race played out perfectly. He

splits his time between mountain

biking, the track and road

cycling.

He will compete at the

South Island mountain bike

championships in Dunedin,

which start on Friday, before

embarking on his summer

track campaign based at Denton

Park.

Ryan’s coach Hamish Ferguson

described him as “an incredibly

motivated kid”.

Ryan has won medals on

the track for Canterbury and

continues to excel across the

three disciplines.

“We took Ryan away to track

nationals last year as a bit of

development experiment, and

he did so well that he ended up

being in the Canterbury A team

pursuit and winning golf there,”

Ferguson said.

“For someone who only

took up track cycling last year,

he’s produced some great

results,”

Ryan said he loved all three

disciplines but one day would

like to race professionally

overseas and compete on some of

the big European tours.

Spurway’s one-time weakness

has turned into a national titlewinning

strength.

The 15-year-old, who lives in

Fendalton, won the under-16

girls title at the national road

cycling championships.

She has competed in

triathlons regularly but when

she was out injured two years

ago her focus changed.

“Out of the swim, bike and

run the bike was always my

weakest area, but when I was

injured, that was the only thing

I could do regularly.”

Charlotte said she was thrilled

to claim her first national title in

a sprint finish.

She won in a time of 1hr 21sec

with a sprint finish at the end of

the 35km race.

“I’d had a few training rides

on it leading up to the race and

because it was so flat, I knew

that creating a breakaway

would be tough so I just gave it

everything I had in that final

sprint.”

Charlotte went away with the

New Zealand under-17 road

team to Adelaide in April for

the Australian nationals in a

development capacity. She said

it was something she hopes to

do again next year.

She also hopes to continue

competing in triathlons over

summer, as well as take a more

active role in track cycling.

“I think the road cycling has

started to gain more of my focus

though,” she said.

“I don’t have any big goals, I

just want to see how far I can

go.”
