Fate of<br />

teenagers<br />

charged in<br />

‘drown him’<br />

case known<br />

this week<br />

• By Sophie Cornish<br />

THE OUTCOME of the longrunning<br />

“drown him” court case<br />

will be known on Friday.<br />

Two teenagers charged over the<br />

alleged attack after the Rolleston<br />

fireworks display in November<br />

last year appeared in the Youth<br />

Court last week.<br />

The now 17-year-olds were defending<br />

a charge each of causing<br />

injury with intent to injure. They<br />

were 15 and 16 at the time. The<br />

case grabbed headlines after the<br />

15-year-old victim (now 16) was<br />

allegedly attacked on Tennyson St<br />

after leaving the fireworks display.<br />

He was pushed into a water race<br />

and had his head allegedly held<br />

under water, while others in the<br />

group watching yelled: “Drown<br />

him, drown him”.<br />

Judge Stephen O’Driscoll heard<br />

evidence over two days last week.<br />

He reserved his decision which<br />

will be released on Friday. The<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> was prohibited from<br />

covering the case last week.<br />

The teenagers who appeared<br />

in court were originally charged<br />

with aggravated robbery, but had<br />

their charges amended in August.<br />

The victim was left with a gash<br />

on his face that required stitches<br />

and a night in hospital.<br />

THAT MUST be one mean so and so who<br />

put a slug into Kylo the cat (page 3).<br />

And now Kylo’s family is having to pick up<br />

the tab for most of the vet bills, which don’t<br />

come cheap.<br />

Already the bill is up to $2500, but luckily help has arrived in<br />

the form of a Givealittle page. This online fundraising tool, which<br />

has rendered things like Telethon redundant, has raised more<br />

than $700 to help pay for some of the costs.<br />

That is a huge relief for Kylo’s family, and no doubt Kylo too,<br />

because it means there’s likely enough money around to repair the<br />

damaged cat.<br />

But it’s one very expensive slug.<br />

Great feat on page 1 today with David Beatty’s hat-trick. Top<br />

stuff.<br />

RECOVERING: Lachlan Sewell with the family’s cat Kylo, who<br />

was shot with an air rifle. (Right) – Kirsty Sewell with Kylo.<br />

MORE THAN $700 has been<br />

raised to help with a Prebbleton<br />

cat’s veterinary bill after he was<br />

shot with a high-calibre air rifle.<br />

Kylo, 2, left his house on<br />

Conductors Rd on November 27<br />

and didn’t return home for three<br />

days. His owner Kirsty Sewell<br />

said it wasn’t unusual for him to<br />

stray away from their house but<br />

she did become concerned as<br />

time went on.<br />

When Kylo returned, Mrs<br />

Sewell picked him up and placed<br />

him on her eight-year-old son<br />

Lachlan’s bed.<br />

“I didn’t realise he was hurt<br />

until I put him down and I was<br />

like ‘oh, no.’ He was limping and<br />

he had a big lump in his back,”<br />

she said.<br />

Mrs Sewell took Kylo straight<br />

to the vet where X-rays determined<br />

he had been shot and had<br />

a “major fracture” in his front<br />

leg.<br />

“We now know, post-surgery,<br />

the bullet went into the front of<br />

his shoulder, so somebody was<br />

taking a kill shot,” she said.<br />

Mrs Sewell said what had<br />

happened to Kylo made her feel<br />

“sick” and she could not understand<br />

why someone would want<br />

to hurt him.<br />

Kylo had surgery last week<br />

to remove the pellet and has a<br />

brace around his leg.<br />

It’s possible his leg may have<br />

to be amputated, but Mrs Sewell<br />

said they will have to wait to see<br />

if it heals first.<br />

Mrs Sewell’s friend has set-up<br />

a Givealittle page to help with<br />

Kylo’s vet bill, which is currently<br />

about $2500.<br />

SPCA Canterbury chief<br />

hiphop<br />

inspector Jamie Hancock said<br />

there has been one other reported<br />

incident of an animal, also<br />

a cat, being shot in Prebbleton<br />

since January last year.<br />

“It’s possible some cases are<br />

only reported to police and some<br />

are not reported at all, but we<br />

know this is a widespread problem<br />

throughout Canterbury,”<br />

she said.<br />

Senior Sergeant Pete Stills said<br />

Maddie back in Starship<br />

• By Emily O’Connell<br />

KIDNEY transplant recipient<br />

Maddie Collins is undergoing<br />

further testing in Starship<br />

Children’s Health in Auckland<br />

following a kidney scare.<br />

Tests results last Tuesday<br />

showed her kidney function<br />

“wasn’t great” and she had to<br />

be admitted to Christchurch<br />

Hospital.<br />

Maddie, 14, of West Melton<br />

was on route to Nelson with<br />

her grandmother Elaine Manson<br />

when her mother Sarah<br />

Manson-Collins received the<br />

results.<br />

The pair drove back immediately<br />

and Maddie was admitted<br />

to Christchurch Hospital for<br />

two nights before being flown to<br />

Auckland on Thursday.<br />

Maddie, who suffers from the<br />

kidney disease nephrotic syndrome,<br />

underwent a successful<br />

kidney transplant in January.<br />

Mrs Manson-Collins said they<br />

are unsure what is going on with<br />

her kidney and they hope they<br />

will be able to “get to the bottom<br />

of it” at Starship.<br />

“She’s great, she’s a wee bit<br />

scared if I was honest,” she said.<br />

Mrs Manson-Collins is unsure<br />

of how long they will be in<br />

Auckland for but says Maddie is<br />

HEALTH: Maddie Collins, 14, is back at Starship Children’s<br />

Health in Auckland after tests showed her kidney function<br />

“wasn’t great.”<br />

undergoing further testing and<br />

might also need a biopsy.<br />

Maddie’s ongoing health<br />

issues have meant she will be<br />

going back to Southern Health<br />

School next year.<br />

It comes after she has spent<br />

the past six months or so studying<br />

at St Margaret’s College,<br />

having been at health school<br />

prior to that.<br />

Mrs Manson-Collins says<br />

Maddie will have a “dual<br />

enrolment,” where she remains<br />

enrolled at St Margaret’s College<br />

but she will be attending health<br />

school and will have a health<br />

school tutor.<br />

“She’s missed so much school<br />

and something’s going on in her<br />

gut and it’s affecting her kidney<br />

and her well-being and we<br />

need to get on top of that. She’s<br />

just not managing full days of<br />

school,” she said.<br />

Health school is a school for<br />

year 1 to 13 students who are too<br />

unwell to attend full-time education.<br />

It offers tutoring at home,<br />

hospital or one of its learning<br />

centres.<br />

Although Maddie was initially<br />

“a bit hesitant” about going to<br />

health school instead of St Margaret’s,<br />

Mrs Manson-Collins<br />

says Maddie is looking forward<br />

to focusing on her core learning.<br />

Maddie and her family were<br />

told on January 16 their five-year<br />

wait for a kidney match had<br />

been found.<br />

They flew from Christchurch<br />

to Auckland early the following<br />

day and Maddie underwent an<br />

initial operation and then a second<br />

operation to reposition the<br />

kidney hours later at Starship.<br />

Mrs Manson-Collins said<br />

Maddie had an “amazing recovery”<br />

in spite of the first 48 hours<br />

not going to plan.<br />

Maddie received a kidney<br />

transplant from her father<br />

Adam Collins five years ago but<br />

her body rejected it.<br />

With only a two per cent<br />

chance of finding a donor match<br />

in New Zealand, the family<br />

did not expect to find another<br />

kidney in the country.<br />

Youth aid officer for <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

• By Emily O’Connell<br />

SELWYN WILL have its own<br />

youth aid officer from next year.<br />

The officer will work with<br />

schools in preventing children<br />

and young people reoffending<br />

and will be based at the Rolleston<br />

Police Station on Tennyson<br />

St from March.<br />

The decision<br />

is part of the<br />

nationwide<br />

boost of 1800<br />

police officers<br />

over the next<br />

three years.<br />

Currently,<br />

Lane Todd<br />

the district is<br />

covered by the<br />

Hornby youth<br />

aid officer.<br />

Canterbury Metro Area Commander<br />

Superintendent Lane<br />

Todd said the community policing<br />

team at Hornby is “pretty<br />

full at the moment.”<br />

Hornby and <strong>Selwyn</strong> police<br />

youth aid officer Senior Constable<br />

Bruce Ward welcomed the<br />

announcement.<br />

“It’s a big thing and I think<br />

what you’ll see is a real proactive<br />

approach because what we want<br />

to do is prevent youth offending,”<br />

Senior Constable Ward said.<br />

He said the position was needed<br />

because of the high rate of<br />

youth and schools in the district<br />

along with the youth offending<br />

age set to increase.<br />

“With the increase in [youth<br />

offending] age to 17, their offending<br />

will be dealt with youth<br />

aid officers,” Senior Constable<br />

Ward said.<br />

“At the moment, if you’re 17,<br />

you’re dealt with the district<br />

court,” Senior Constable Ward<br />

said.<br />

That will increase the number<br />

of cases handled by youth aid officers<br />

by about 20 to 30 per cent,<br />

he said.<br />

Including 17-year-olds as<br />

youth offenders is also “positive”<br />

Senior Constable Ward said.<br />

Many teenagers at that age are<br />

enrolled in secondary schools,<br />

he said.<br />

“So you might have a stolen<br />

car before that is stopped that<br />

had three 16-year-olds and a<br />

17-year-old, all going to the<br />

same school,” Senior Constable<br />

Ward said.<br />

“The 16-year-olds will get<br />

taken home and the 17-year-old<br />

gets arrested. So now as soon as<br />

you turn 18, you’re in the district<br />

court.”<br />

FAST FACTS:<br />

DECISION: A<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> youth<br />

aid officer will<br />

be based at<br />

DISHWASHER FIRE<br />

It took Leeston and Southbridge<br />

firefighters about five minutes to<br />

extinguish a dishwasher fire on<br />

Market St in Leeston at 9.20am<br />

on Thursday. Leeston chief fire<br />

officer Lloyd Clausen said the fire<br />

was caused by an electrical fault<br />

and the woman who was in the<br />

house at the time “did everything<br />

right” by phoning 111, evacuating<br />

the house, explaining what had<br />

happened and having working<br />

smoke alarms. He said other<br />

than burns to the dishwasher and<br />

joinery, there was “just a bit of<br />

smoke damage” to that part of the<br />

house.<br />

Our People<br />

SELWYN TIMES<br />

Claire Howison<br />

New school’s principal highlighting the<br />

Staff are set to move into<br />

Lincoln’s newest school,<br />

Ararira Springs Primary<br />

– Te Puna o Ararira, next<br />

month before it opens<br />

its door to pupils in<br />

February. Principal Claire<br />

Howison, 50, has spent<br />

the year planning for the<br />

new school and getting<br />

to know the community.<br />

Emily O’Connell spoke to<br />

her about the new role<br />

How and when did you get<br />

into teaching?<br />

I started teaching in 1991 and<br />

I’ve just always wanted to be a<br />

teacher.<br />

Why did you always want to<br />

be a teacher?<br />

I guess I had inspiring teachers<br />

when I was a child, who had an<br />

impact on my life and I decided I<br />

wanted to leave that impact and<br />

have that impact on others.<br />

How have you found your<br />

time teaching?<br />

I’ve absolutely loved them<br />

and hand on heart can say that<br />

there has been only a handful of<br />

days in an up to 30-year career<br />

where I’ve not ever wanted to<br />

go to work. I’ve just loved every<br />

moment of it.<br />

What have you learnt through<br />

teaching?<br />

That learning never stops and<br />

just the impact of learning in<br />

every aspect of your life. You<br />

possibly initially think that<br />

learning is only related to your<br />

school years but you just know<br />

it happens if you are taught to<br />

learn rather than knowledge that<br />

it will have an impact on you for<br />

the rest of your life.<br />

What would you say has been<br />

the most rewarding part of<br />

your career?<br />

There’s been many things,<br />

I’ve worked in quite a few<br />

different schools. I have<br />

worked in another school in<br />

the North Island where I was<br />

a foundation staff member<br />

so that was exciting. I guess<br />

connecting with people and<br />

quite real connections, both with<br />

colleagues and children and<br />

their families, that would be the<br />

most rewarding part.<br />

How has teaching changed in<br />

the time you’ve been doing it?<br />

That’s an interesting question.<br />

I’ve had this discussion with<br />

colleagues because people have<br />

said that it’s just got so busy and<br />

that we are working long, long<br />

hours. I’ve always worked like<br />

that. But teaching for me has<br />

never been a job, it’s always been<br />

a lifestyle. And while it is long<br />

and hard, it is rewarding. I’ve not<br />

noticed the change but maybe it<br />

has changed for other people.<br />

How did you come to being<br />

a foundation principal of this<br />

school in Lincoln?<br />

I’ve lived in Christchurch for<br />

20 years and have been a deputy<br />

principal of a large school for<br />

a good portion of that time.<br />

So I have worked with great<br />

leaders in the past and been<br />

involved in leadership but in<br />

that second tier of leadership.<br />

The opportunity came up and it<br />

KNOWLEDGE: Claire<br />

Howison is the principal of<br />

Lincoln’s newest primary<br />

school, Ararira Springs<br />

Primary. (Left) The school<br />

under construction, it is set<br />

for opening early in the new<br />

year.<br />

was advertised. The establishing<br />

board’s emerging vision for the<br />

school and my philosophy of<br />

education were really the perfect<br />

match. They were brave enough<br />

to appoint a first-time principal<br />

to the role and it was just the<br />

right thing and the right time for<br />

me as well.<br />

What was the large<br />

school you were deputy<br />

principal of?<br />

I have been deputy principal<br />

of both St Albans School and<br />

Fendalton Open Air School.<br />

What was the first school you<br />

taught at?<br />

My first school was Tawhai<br />

School in Stokes Valley in Lower<br />

Hutt.<br />

How was that experience?<br />

I think I was only 20-years-old.<br />

I was probably very fresh-faced<br />

and naive but had ideas of the<br />

kind of teacher I wanted to be.<br />

Did you go into teaching as<br />

soon as you could after high<br />

school?<br />

I did. I went straight from<br />

high school to university and<br />

what was teachers college then.<br />

I attended concurrently Victoria<br />

University and Wellington<br />

teachers college.<br />

Did you grow up in the North<br />

Island?<br />

I did, in Lower Hutt in<br />

Wellington.<br />

What made you move to<br />

Christchurch?<br />

I moved to Christchurch in<br />

1998 and I was flexible and just<br />

thought I would love to have the<br />

opportunity to live and work in<br />

the South Island before I settled<br />

somewhere permanently. And<br />

then not long after moving here,<br />

I met my husband Steve who is a<br />

Cantabrian.<br />

What do you live now?<br />

I live in St Albans.<br />

Do you think you will move<br />

to Lincoln or somewhere else in<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong>?<br />

Probably not. I will continue<br />

to commute. Just because my<br />

husband and children’s, Jacob,<br />

15, and Eva, 13, lives are here.<br />

They both go to Boys’ and<br />

Girls’ High respectively and<br />

my husband does the bulk of<br />

his work as a builder over this<br />

side of town. My whole family<br />

are also avid beach people so<br />

they surf and windsurf and<br />

things and being in <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

would make that just a little bit<br />

trickier. I’m not surprised but<br />

I have really enjoyed getting to<br />

know more about the Lincoln<br />

area and particularly where our<br />

school is, it’s just beautiful. Just<br />

feel so lucky to have a school in<br />

such a gorgeous area but also<br />

finding out about Lincoln and<br />

the education fraternity always<br />

talk about contextualising your<br />

curriculum but I’ve known<br />

that to be more true than this<br />

setting because it’s the impact<br />

of teaching in Lincoln has just<br />

added a very special dimension<br />

to our curriculum.<br />

impact of learning<br />

Have you ever taught<br />

your own children?<br />

So when I was at St<br />

Albans School, we were<br />

all at St Albans School<br />

together. But I wasn’t a<br />

classroom teacher there<br />

I was what’s called a<br />

walking deputy principal.<br />

While I taught them in<br />

various classes, I didn’t<br />

ever have them in my own<br />

class. I taught maths, or I<br />

taught gifted and talented<br />

programmes and they may<br />

have been in the odd class<br />

but I wasn’t a classroom<br />

teacher as such.<br />

What was it like on the<br />

odd occasion to teach your<br />

own children, was it a bit<br />

strange?<br />

Not really. It was really<br />

nice for us all to be at the<br />

same school.<br />

Can you tell me a bit<br />

about the new school<br />

and when it is opening<br />

officially?<br />

So it will officially open<br />

on February 5. The blessing<br />

will take place on January<br />

15, so we will be on-site<br />

in the three weeks prior<br />

to opening. It’s built for<br />

450 students but with a<br />

future capacity of 750, so<br />

they will build another<br />

block in the future if the<br />

roll increases. The hall and<br />

administration building<br />

though are for a capacity of<br />

750. It is modern learning<br />

environments with spaces<br />

designed for two or three<br />

classes to work together<br />

but complemented by<br />

lovely breakout spaces,<br />

kitchen and making and<br />

art facilities... It’s got<br />

two playgrounds and an<br />

internal courtyard and<br />

lots of landscaping with<br />

vegetable gardens and a<br />

wee orchard planned.<br />

How many pupils are set<br />

to attend next year?<br />

It’s variable . . . but at<br />

the moment we have 90<br />

children expected on day<br />

LEARNING: Claire Howison, pictured with her<br />

daughter Eva, 13, and son Jacob, 15, has been<br />

teaching for about 30 years.<br />

one. But I would imagine<br />

that would get up to 100 by<br />

February.<br />

Can parents still enrol<br />

their children?<br />

Yes, so all our enrolment<br />

procedures and links are<br />

on our website http://<br />

ararira.school.nz/.<br />

What’s it been like being<br />

a foundation principal?<br />

It’s been an honour<br />

really but I’ve also felt the<br />

responsibility of it<br />

. . . you’re not given a<br />

blank canvas but you are<br />

given the opportunity to<br />

create something that fits<br />

within the constraints of<br />

the ministry’s systems but<br />

is what you believe about<br />

teaching and learning. And<br />

that opportunity doesn’t<br />

come up very often. The<br />

easy option would have<br />

been to have recreated<br />

things that you know work<br />

but we’ve tried to stay true<br />

to the visions and values of<br />

the school . . . everything is<br />

centred around developing<br />

caring, curious and capable<br />

learners.<br />

Can you tell me about<br />

what you’ve been this<br />

year?<br />

We rented space off<br />

Lincoln University so<br />

we’ve been on Ellesmere<br />

Junction Rd just down by<br />

the football grounds. So the<br />

year has been spent<br />

just preparing and<br />

working through the<br />

ministry’s requirements for<br />

opening a new school<br />

. . . it’s also been<br />

connecting with the<br />

community, researching<br />

and reading and just<br />

establishing all the<br />

documentation and<br />

philosophy that underpins<br />

great teaching and<br />

learning.<br />

What are you most<br />

looking forward to when<br />

the school opens?<br />

Children. We’ve had<br />

a year I guess without<br />

children although some of<br />

this term we have<br />

spent getting to know<br />

families.<br />

What do you like doing<br />

outside of work?<br />

I’m an avid reader and<br />

I also enjoy keeping fit I<br />

run a community exercise<br />

group three mornings a<br />

week at 6am before I go<br />

to work and just really<br />

spending time with family<br />

and friends.<br />

Confidence in your Vehicle’s Safety<br />

Many vehicles only have a warrant<br />

of fitness check every <strong>12</strong> months so<br />

mechanical issues can go undetected.<br />

Given recent publicity around some poor<br />

WOF inspections undertaken further north,<br />

some people may be reflecting on their own<br />

vehicle’s roadworthiness.<br />

If you have concerns then why not have<br />

your vehicle looked over before the<br />

Christmas/holiday period. A quick look now<br />

by an experienced and capable automotive<br />

engineer will ease your mind by ensuring<br />

any potential issues are spotted while there<br />

is still time to have<br />

any needed repairs<br />

completed before<br />

heading away on<br />

social or holiday<br />

jaunts.<br />

The team at Rolleston<br />

Diesel & Petrols are<br />

has been carried out,<br />

leaving you feeling<br />

relaxed about your<br />

vehicle.<br />

Allen & Hayden on the job at<br />

Rolleston Diesel & Petrols.<br />

“We conduct all warrant of fitness checks<br />

by the book and don’t cut corners when<br />

inspecting a vehicle. It includes examining<br />

the brakes, suspension and steering,” says<br />

Petrols.<br />

Rolleston Diesel & Petrols<br />

has a high-tech facility,<br />

equipped with new and older<br />

equipment so they can cater<br />

for all vehicle makes and<br />

or one that has been around<br />

for a while. They work on<br />

light commercials (up to <strong>12</strong><br />

tons), motorhomes, buses,<br />

OF ALL THE things I expected<br />

to deal with as a stay-at-homedad,<br />

Vittoria being mean to<br />

another baby was not one of<br />

them.<br />

Maybe that was a foolish assumption,<br />

I don’t know, I’ve only<br />

got the one kid remember.<br />

What are you supposed to do<br />

in that situation? And what is the<br />

other parent supposed to do?<br />

Is there a book on this?<br />

On Tuesday I took Vittoria to a<br />

Plunket playgroup in Papanui on<br />

the advice of a fellow full-time<br />

dad.<br />

It was an enjoyable morning,<br />

the sun was out and there was<br />

plenty of toys and other kids for<br />

Vittoria to play with.<br />

During the course of her rambling<br />

about exploring, she went<br />

inside and sat next to another<br />

wee lass, only a couple of months<br />

younger than her who was playing<br />

with a book.<br />

So, naturally, she steals said<br />

book off the poor kid.<br />

The other baby’s mum was<br />

really good about it, even told her<br />

daughter to share.<br />

However, Vittoria was not satisfied<br />

with just taking her book.<br />

Oh no, she started grabbing<br />

anything this kid was holding,<br />

ignoring my vain pleas for her to<br />

desist or share.<br />

VITTORIA<br />

& Matt<br />

ELEVATED: Vittoria getting a<br />

unobstructed view of Mother<br />

Goose and other classic floats<br />

at the recent Santa Parade.<br />

Eventually the other baby got<br />

sick of Vittoria’s shtick and went<br />

to grab her book back.<br />

Vittoria promptly hit her in the<br />

head with it.<br />

I was mortified, I’d never seen<br />

her hit anyone else before (she’s<br />

hit me heaps, but not in anger).<br />

The wee lass started crying<br />

and I profusely apologised to the<br />

mum and told Vittoria off – but I<br />

don’t know if I did enough?<br />

Vittoria’s had bigger kids do<br />

similar to her and I didn’t know<br />

what I should have done then<br />

either. Other people’s kids seem<br />

like a minefield topic.<br />

Either way, I took Vittoria back<br />

outside to where there were older<br />

kids than her so she couldn’t<br />

cause any more grief.<br />

I suppose I’ll get better at this,<br />

I really don’t think I want a bully<br />

for a daughter, regardless of how<br />

dang cute she is.<br />

In a much nicer update, we<br />

took Vittoria to the recent Santa<br />

Parade in the city.<br />

I’m stoked the old floats like<br />

Mother Goose and the Haunted<br />

House are still about. I haven’t<br />

been to a parade in quite a few<br />

years so it was cool to see the<br />

old classics and share them with<br />

Vittoria.<br />

Your Local Views<br />

Subdividing attracts interest<br />

District<br />

councillor<br />

Debra<br />

Hasson<br />

writes<br />

about<br />

subdivision<br />

rules in the<br />

District Plan<br />

THE DISTRICT council is<br />

undertaking a review of it’s<br />

District Plan. Subdividing<br />

always attracts a lot of interest<br />

due to its capital gain.<br />

Developing proposed subdivision<br />

rules for public submission<br />

is challenging. Generally,<br />

the process requires council<br />

to monitor trends, assessing<br />

them against the principles<br />

of the Resource Management<br />

Act, to see if a zone needs to be<br />

changed, created or protected.<br />

So, what’s changed since the<br />

last District Plan was adopted?<br />

Urban growth patterns<br />

Created by the Greater<br />

Christchurch Urban Development<br />

Strategy was forward<br />

thinking. This agency, developed<br />

an urban infrastructure<br />

plan for future growth in and<br />

around existing towns.<br />

The February 22, 2011,<br />

earthquake saw growth migrate<br />

to <strong>Selwyn</strong>. Thankfully,<br />

the strategy rezoned land<br />

prior, meaning deferred zones<br />

could be brought forward<br />

and released for development.<br />

The idea then allows suitable<br />

adjacent land to be rezoned as<br />

required.<br />

Rural subdivisions<br />

Envisaged 4ha inner plains<br />

and 20ha outside.<br />

However, a disparity allowing<br />

outer plains landowners<br />

owning 40ha plus to subdivide<br />

a minimum 5000m 2 enabling<br />

a dwelling and a no build<br />

covenant over the remaining<br />

19.5ha, retaining a residential<br />

density of one house per 20ha,<br />

has seen the same argument<br />

for subdivision in the inner<br />

plains enabling the creation of<br />

1ha lots scattered throughout<br />

both rural zones.<br />

Purchasing a small<br />

rural lifestyle block is popular<br />

and the recent <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

revaluation saw the average<br />

capital value of these blocks<br />

valued at $927,000 for rating<br />

purposes.<br />

This issue aside, over time<br />

lifestyle blocks have also be<br />

subjected to ongoing amenity<br />

challenges.<br />

For example, Christchurch<br />

City’s industrial growth on<br />

the boundary with <strong>Selwyn</strong> has<br />

seen the erosion of the green<br />

belt concept with only a thin<br />

line of 4ha blocks remaining,<br />

some divided by the new motorway<br />

and I would be right<br />

in suggesting the residents<br />

of Prebbleton do not want<br />

industrial-zoned land on their<br />

doorstep.<br />

And as zoned industrial<br />

land is costed per square metre,<br />

many businesses have<br />

found the purchase of 4ha and<br />

applying for a resource consent<br />

a cheaper option however<br />

when granted, often generate<br />

complaints from neighbours.<br />

As you can see rural subdivision<br />

has more challenges<br />

than urban.<br />

Having my say on your<br />

behalf, perhaps clearer zones<br />

and rules would alleviate some<br />

of these issues.<br />

PROJECT: Dancing figure sculptures and the year 8 pupils with arts teacher.<br />

School sculptures come alive<br />

• By Emily O’Connell<br />

A SIX-YEAR project, creating<br />

23 life-sized dancing figure<br />

sculptures, is coming to an end<br />

at Rolleston School.<br />

The project started in 20<strong>12</strong><br />

with the then year 2 pupils<br />

drawing a picture of the class<br />

dancing in a circle.<br />

Teacher Jade Bell said when<br />

reflecting on the drawings the<br />

pupils identified there were a<br />

number of things they needed<br />

to learn in order to complete an<br />

observational drawing.<br />

“So we explored people dancing<br />

through drawing and then it<br />

moved onto photography, painting<br />

and sculpture,” she said.<br />

Six years on, the pupils are<br />

now in year 8 and nine of their<br />

sculptures have been finished<br />

and will be placed in Rolleston<br />

in the new year.<br />

The remaining 14 sculptures<br />

will be installed in the community<br />

when they are completed,<br />

which Miss Bell said is “an<br />

ongoing process.”<br />

She said the sculptures are<br />

going to be installed in various<br />

spots including Rolleston<br />

Square, Rolleston dog park,<br />

Brookside Park, the school<br />

and outside New World Rolleston.<br />

“I was notified last week that<br />

four of our sculptures which<br />

were designated for Rolleston<br />

Reserve will need to find new<br />

homes, as planning is under<br />

way for the new Rolleston Town<br />

Centre,” Miss Bell said.<br />

Pupil Thomas Preston said<br />

installing the sculptures will<br />

mean a lot to the class.<br />

“We have been working on it<br />

for such a long time and it’s going<br />

to be nice to share our work<br />

with the community,” he said.<br />

The finished pieces looked<br />

“better than expected” to pupil<br />

Sean Bennett, who said it was<br />

great to be completing the<br />

project.<br />

For pupil Ashtyn Steele, the<br />

sculptures reflects the school’s<br />

values.<br />

“I feel that there has been a lot<br />

hard work gone into them and it<br />

shows our school attributes, we<br />

have been persistent and now we<br />

are successful,” she said.<br />

Rolleston Men’s Shed has been<br />

helping the pupils create the<br />

sculptures and Morgan and Pollard<br />

will install them.<br />

FACILITY: Go Hororata gathering ideas for the new Hororata<br />

Community Centre while visiting others in the district. ​<br />

Ideas sought for<br />

new Hororata centre<br />

• By Emily O’Connell<br />

A SPORTS floor, covered<br />

outdoor area and a stage.<br />

These are just a few of the<br />

features which could be included<br />

in the new $4.6 million Hororata<br />

Community Centre.<br />

A survey has been developed<br />

for people to have their say on<br />

what they would like to see included<br />

in the centre.<br />

It asks participants to rate<br />

the importance of a number of<br />

features such as having a lounge,<br />

a duty manager and kitchen.<br />

This will help Go Hororata,<br />

the group behind the new centre,<br />

develop conceptual plans.<br />

Go Hororata is formed from<br />

nine different community groups<br />

and elected members of the<br />

public.<br />

The district council has included<br />

the project in its Long Term<br />

Plan, it is planned to be built on<br />

Hororata Reserve in 2023/4.<br />

It will be funded through a<br />

mix of fundraising, development<br />

contributions, insurance, other<br />

funds and targeted rates.<br />

Hororata senior station officer<br />

Roger Parsons said he didn’t<br />

have any “special” ideas for the<br />

new centre but he will fill out the<br />

survey and see what happens.<br />

“I think there’s a group trying<br />

to keep the old hall, take it back<br />

to its original [state] and use it<br />

for a museum . . . which would<br />

be a good idea,” he said.<br />

Mr Parsons believes the new<br />

centre will be used more than<br />

the hall as “it’s not very inviting<br />

at the moment.”<br />

Go Hororata chairman Dave<br />

Sligh said Go Hororata is committed<br />

to developing a multi-use<br />

community centre which is an<br />

asset to residents, the district<br />

“and beyond.”<br />

“It is important at this point<br />

that all community groups and<br />

businesses express their interest<br />

in being involved in the project,”<br />

he said.<br />

Go Hororata has appointed<br />

Octa Associates to work with<br />

the community to develop a<br />

detail brief for the community<br />

centre and to engage with architects.<br />

In October, the group visited<br />

the Dunsandel, Greenpark, Tai<br />

Tapu, Templeton, West Melton<br />

and Glentunnel community<br />

centres to gather ideas.<br />

New safety vests keep<br />

Weedons pupils safe<br />

WEEDONS SCHOOL pupils<br />

will be a lot safer when they<br />

bike or walk to school thanks to<br />

new safety vests provided by the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Business Group.<br />

The group provides a network<br />

for small and medium-sized<br />

businesses which support<br />

other companies, charities<br />

and community groups in the<br />

district.<br />

Providing safety vests for<br />

Weedons School pupils was a<br />

low-cost idea with a big impact.<br />

It was suggested by Shona<br />

Cottrell, who runs the sewing<br />

school, Creative Edge Studio,<br />

and has children at the school.<br />

During her school runs, Mrs<br />

Cottrell noticed many pupils<br />

walking or biking around<br />

high-speed rural roads who<br />

were often not that visible to<br />

motorists.<br />

Principal Kathy Bell said the<br />

school has a number of pupils<br />

who catch buses to and from<br />

school on busy roads and some<br />

who cycle along 80-100km/h<br />

roads. “The new shiny vests will<br />

make them a lot more visible<br />

and will be greatly appreciated<br />

by these pupils and their<br />

families,” she said.<br />

Mrs Cottrell presented 25<br />

vests at a school assembly and<br />

said it was a great pleasure, as<br />

part of the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Business<br />

Group, to be able to give back to<br />

the community.<br />

“Keeping our children safe on<br />

SCHOOLS<br />

the roads is a priority and as a<br />

small business owner in <strong>Selwyn</strong>,<br />

it’s great to contribute in this<br />

way,” she said.<br />

Cooling down after<br />

a tough challenge<br />

West Melton School<br />

year 7 and 8 pupils took<br />

a dip in the school pool<br />

after completing their<br />

William Pike Challenge.<br />

The challenge<br />

involved tramping to<br />

the Woolshed Creek<br />

Hut track near Mt<br />

Somers. Bad weather<br />

didn’t stop the pupils<br />

from completing the<br />

challenge and staying<br />

a night in the hut. The<br />

challenge required<br />

them to engage in<br />

outdoor activities and<br />

community service.<br />

Discover your backyard with our<br />

100 days of summer<br />

West Melton opening<br />

This summer get out and enjoy what our district has to offer with our helpful list of activities to do<br />

in the district over the summer.<br />

Our 100 Days of Summer guide will be arriving in your letterbox this week. The activities range<br />

from a perfect day for the thrill-seekers through to something for those just wanting to lounge<br />

around in the sun.<br />

Growing up in Darfield and now calling it home, Mayor Sam Broughton has spent many years<br />

exploring <strong>Selwyn</strong>.<br />

He sees this as a great chance to have a chat to friends and family about how to make the most<br />

of down time around the holidays.<br />

“This is a great chance to create memorable adventures around <strong>Selwyn</strong> this summer,” he says.<br />

“It’s a magical district, with so much to see and do right on our own doorstep. I really hope people<br />

get out and about and enjoy the great locations and activities around <strong>Selwyn</strong>.”<br />

With ideas like going fishing, visiting some of the great summer spots, jumping on the<br />

TranzAlpine, heading out to Darfield, Leeston and Chamberlains Ford, visiting a winery and<br />

dozens more, there should never a day of head scratching – so residents should keep their 100<br />

Days of Summer list handy.<br />

Mayor Broughton says whether you’re new to <strong>Selwyn</strong> or have lived here for some time, he hopes<br />

you use this guide as a tool to relive your favourite memories or create some new ones.<br />

The 100 Day of Summer flyer should be arriving in letterboxes across the district this week.<br />

There’s also a chance to win cool prizes by posting your adventures on Instagram of you trying<br />

out one of our 100 Days of Summer activities. Just tag us at @sensationalselwyn and you’re in the<br />

draw. If you’re not on Instagram flick your pictures through to competition@selwyn.govt.nz, we’ll<br />

draw random winners throughout the summer and you can enter as many times as you like.<br />

help those in need<br />

Christmas is all about giving and our libraries are running a<br />

it on the Cantastic Tree between 23 November and 19 <strong>December</strong>.<br />

Enjoy the holidays and reduce your waste<br />

Summer is the season of parties and barbeques - and the Council is encouraging residents to help the<br />

environment and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill by making sure they dispose of holiday<br />

season recyclables responsibly.<br />

Christmas gift wrapping paper can be recycled as long as it’s not foil wrap. With gifts such as kids<br />

toys, please ensure that the different packing material types are separated. Toys, clothes, polystyrene,<br />

drinking glasses or crockery cannot go in the recycling bin. Remember, if it is not on the sticker<br />

underneath your bin lid, then don’t put it in the bin!<br />

For a full list of what you can and can’t recycle please visit selwyn.govt.nz/rubbish, or you can request a<br />

free sticker for your recycling bin with this information by contacting us on 347 2857.<br />

Rubbish and recycling collections scheduled for Christmas Day (Tuesday 25 <strong>December</strong>) will take place<br />

the prior Saturday 22 <strong>December</strong>. Collections scheduled for New Year’s Day (Tuesday 1 January) will<br />

take place the prior Saturday 29 <strong>December</strong>. All other collection days will proceed as normal.<br />

The Pines Resource Recovery Park at Rolleston is also open most days over the holidays including<br />

weekends and has a drop-off area where most recyclables can be dropped off at no cost. Check<br />

BACKYARD CRITTERS<br />

A vehicle<br />

crashed into the<br />

maintenance<br />

cupboard of<br />

Snap Fitness<br />

in Rolleston<br />

Square, at noon<br />

last Wednesday.<br />

There was<br />

nobody near<br />

the cupboard<br />

at the time. A<br />

Snap Fitness<br />

spokesman said<br />

the sole occupant<br />

of the vehicle,<br />

a woman, was<br />

uninjured from<br />

the crash. He<br />

was unsure what<br />

caused the car to<br />

hit the building. ​<br />

Advertising Feature<br />

Newest generation<br />

well catered for<br />

Lincoln University Childcare and Preschool<br />

has now been around for 30 years and former<br />

pupils could be bringing their own children<br />

to experience what they had before.<br />

It was opened in 1988 to provide education<br />

and care for the children of families of the<br />

staff and students of Lincoln University,<br />

local research organisations and the Lincoln<br />

community.<br />

The centre has a separate under-two area<br />

that allows the children to play and learn<br />

in a safe and developmentally appropriate<br />

environment.<br />

New under-twos can now also get their first<br />

month free.<br />

All children have a primary caregiver who<br />

is responsible for ensuring that children’s<br />

individual needs are being met, for example<br />

in feeding, settling in and feeling secure in the<br />

centre. Having a primary caregiver enables<br />

infants and toddlers to build a sense of trust<br />

with the people who care for them.<br />

The centre can take up to <strong>12</strong><br />

children on the under-two side<br />

to ensure providing care and<br />

education of the highest quality.<br />

The teachers all have extensive<br />

training and experience in<br />

working with children of this age<br />

group.<br />

Staff are observant and<br />

responsive to children’s needs,<br />

strengths and interests and<br />

promote positive relationships<br />

among children that promote<br />

cooperative play.<br />

They also employ good-quality individual<br />

assessment and planning that helps teachers<br />

respond to and build on children’s interest<br />

and strengths.<br />

Each child’s progress is recorded in their<br />

profile books and their individual learning<br />

programmes are recorded there too. Parents<br />

are invited to contribute their knowledge and<br />

ideas for the development of their children’s<br />

learning opportunities.<br />

Children have access to a wide range of<br />

learning experiences that include individual,<br />

small and large groups, based on Te Whāriki<br />

(the Early Childhood curriculum).<br />

Te Whāriki, expresses the centre’s<br />

philosophy, supporting every child to be<br />

confident and competent learners, strong<br />

in their identity, language and culture, and<br />

forming strong partnerships with families.<br />

Marsupial of the bug world<br />

Mike Bowie is<br />

an ecologist<br />

who specialises<br />

in entomology<br />

(insects and other<br />

invertebrates). Each<br />

week he introduces<br />

a new species found<br />

in his backyard at<br />

Lincoln. His column<br />

aims to raise public<br />

awareness of<br />

biodiversity, the<br />

variety of living things<br />

around us. Check<br />

out the full list of<br />

invertebrates found at<br />

http://naturewatch.<br />

org.nz/projects/<br />

backyard-biodiversitybugs-in-lincoln<br />

ROLY-POLY, pillbug and<br />

wood louse are all names<br />

used for the cosmopolitan<br />

species Armadillidium<br />

vulgare.<br />

This introduced<br />

invertebrate from Europe<br />

rolls up to resemble a pill,<br />

hence the common names.<br />

Its genus name also gives<br />

a clue to its plate-like form<br />

used in its defence, much<br />

like the armadillo.<br />

Pillbugs can often be<br />

confused with rough slaters<br />

Porcellio scaber, however<br />

the latter cannot roll up,<br />

are flatter in appearance<br />

BUG: Roly-poly, pillbug and wood louse are<br />

all names used for the cosmopolitan species<br />

Armadillidium vulgare.<br />

and have appendages out<br />

their rear end.<br />

Pillbugs range in length<br />

from 9 to 18mm when<br />

mature, have a thorax<br />

which consists of seven<br />

segments, each with a pair<br />

of legs. They live for two to<br />

five years.<br />

These unusual bugs<br />

are nocturnal, so during<br />

the day are usually found<br />

under logs or dead plant<br />

material so as not to desiccate.<br />

They are detritivores,<br />

playing an important<br />

ecosystem service role of<br />

breaking down organic<br />

plant material to nitrogen,<br />

potassium and phosphorus.<br />

Females have a brooding<br />

pouch called a marsupium<br />

when they are pregnant.<br />

Females can produce up to<br />

three broods per year made<br />

up of 100-200 eggs.<br />

When the 0.5mm eggs<br />

hatch, they remain in the<br />

pouch for one to two weeks<br />

feeding on marsupium<br />

fluid.<br />

This truly is the<br />

marsupial of the bug<br />

world.<br />

Enrol now and get 4 weeks<br />

of childcare for under-2s<br />

Lincoln University Childcare & Preschool<br />

offers a caring environment for children<br />

aged 3 months – 5 years.<br />

From January 2019, parents with under-2s not<br />

previously enrolled at the centre can get their<br />

first four weeks of childcare FREE.<br />

Conditions<br />

• You must book six 4.5-hour sessions<br />

for the first four weeks<br />

• Subject to availability<br />

• No tie-in clause<br />

• Offer starts from 14 January<br />

Your child will enjoy a wide range of<br />

learning experiences based on Te Whāriki<br />

(the Early Childhood curriculum).<br />

Prebbleton frustrated over Punivai decision<br />

SPORTS<br />

STAR: Prebbleton have lost out to Burnside in the pursuit of their<br />

former junior player Isaiah Punivai for the 2019 senior rugby<br />

season. ​<br />

Young star opts to play for metro club<br />

• By Gordon Findlater<br />

PREBBLETON’S hope of<br />

securing the services of one of<br />

the country’s most promising<br />

rugby prospects has been dashed<br />

after they lost out to metro club<br />

Burnside.<br />

Isaiah Punivai made headlines<br />

earlier in the year when he left<br />

Christ’s College to take up a<br />

scholarship with St Kentigern<br />

College in east Auckland.<br />

The 18-year-old played junior<br />

rugby for Prebbleton.<br />

The country club understood<br />

Isaiah and his father, Vai, were<br />

open to a potential return to his<br />

former club due to it being their<br />

centennial year.<br />

However, Punivai has opted to<br />

continue his development with<br />

Burnside.<br />

“You can’t limit your own<br />

options so it [Prebbleton] was<br />

something to look at, but I guess<br />

what’s done is done now, my<br />

next few years are already set,”<br />

said Punivai.<br />

“Burnside just kind of ticked<br />

all the boxes for me.”<br />

Prebbleton are disappointed to<br />

miss out on the potential return<br />

of possibly the most high-profile<br />

junior player to come out of the<br />

club.<br />

“My understanding from<br />

those discussions are that he was<br />

keen and the family was keen<br />

to have a year with us for our<br />

centennial year,” said Prebbleton<br />

coach Derek Todd.<br />

“He’s a player that we were<br />

really looking forward to having,<br />

not just because of his ability, but<br />

about promoting the pathways<br />

that are available within our<br />

club.”<br />

Punivai is contracted to the<br />

Crusaders academy.<br />

It’s understood Prebbleton<br />

were due to have a meeting with<br />

Punivai following a meeting<br />

between him and the academy.<br />

“The outcome from that<br />

meeting, as I understand it, is<br />

that he was told he was playing<br />

for Burnside,” said Todd.<br />

“That’s fine, but why wasn’t<br />

that offered to anyone else or<br />

offered to us as his homegrown<br />

club?”<br />

“If we’re talking about country<br />

rugby and development, here’s<br />

a kid that could have done<br />

wonders for our community.”<br />

Punivai said he was not<br />

pushed towards Burnside<br />

by Canterbury Rugby or the<br />

Crusaders Academy.<br />

SUCCESS: Jack<br />

Rodgers, Maia<br />

Broughton and<br />

Luke Barrett<br />

show off their<br />

medal haul<br />

at the NZ<br />

secondary<br />

schools track<br />

championships. ​<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> club runners<br />

bring home medals<br />

A TRIO of <strong>Selwyn</strong> Athletics<br />

Club members took out medals<br />

at the recent New Zealand<br />

secondary schools track<br />

and field championships in<br />

Dunedin.<br />

The championships, held earlier<br />

this month, were attended<br />

by <strong>12</strong>00 pupils from more than<br />

200 schools.<br />

Maia Broughton, who competed<br />

for St Andrew’s College,<br />

won two gold medals in the senior<br />

girls 100m and 200m events.<br />

The 16-year-old won the 100m<br />

final by just 0.02sec in <strong>12</strong>.39sec.<br />

She followed the effort up in<br />

the 200m with a winning time<br />

of 22.19sec.<br />

Jack Rodgers, competing<br />

for Christchurch Boys’<br />

High School, won gold in the<br />

junior boys 400m, bronze in<br />

the 100m and bronze in the<br />

4x400m.<br />

He also finished fifth in the<br />

long jump with a new personal<br />

best of 6.<strong>12</strong>m.<br />

Rodgers’ win in the 400m was<br />

emphatic, finishing in 52.30sec,<br />

nearly 2sec clear of his nearest<br />

rival.<br />

Behind Rodgers was Rolleston<br />

College’s Luke Barrett who took<br />

silver in a time of 54.24sec.<br />

All three athletes are coached<br />

by former Commonwealth<br />

Games runner Bev Peterson.<br />

Beatty’s hat-trick doesn’t<br />

stop Leeston-Southbridge<br />

•From page 1<br />

“It pitched on middle and hit<br />

the top of off stump, so it was<br />

almost the perfect delivery. It<br />

was pretty exciting, really,” said<br />

Beatty.<br />

He came into his hat-trick on<br />

on the back of being walloped<br />

for two sixes by Leeston-<br />

Southbridge’s Ben Donkers.<br />

“It wasn’t ideal but he got out<br />

the following over. For my next<br />

over I was just trying to bowl<br />

yorker length and had a field set<br />

for it,” said Beatty, who is also the<br />

club’s president.<br />

Earlier Beatty also claimed the<br />

wicket of Toby Doyle to finish<br />

with 4/22 from his four overs.<br />

However, Beatty’s remarkable<br />

spell wasn’t enough to get his side<br />

across the line against Leeston-<br />

Southbridge.<br />

Their 95-run win means<br />

Leeston-Southbridge keep<br />

their place at the top of the<br />

competition.<br />

After two wins on the opening<br />

day of the competition, Leeston-<br />

ATTACK: Ben Donkers scored<br />

45 from just 19 deliveries for<br />

Leeston-Southbridge.<br />

Southbridge suffered their first<br />

loss on Saturday morning at<br />

Dudley Park, going down by<br />

seven wickets to Cheviot.<br />

Cheviot reached their target of<br />

96 with just one ball remaining.<br />

But Leeston-Southbridge<br />

bounced back in their second<br />

match of the day against<br />

Darfield.<br />

Batting first, Leeston-<br />

Southbridge made 157/7. The<br />

charge was led by Donkers – who<br />

has returned home from Otago<br />

University – and Chris Beatson.<br />

Donkers, batting at No 3,<br />

scored 45 from just 19 deliveries.<br />

His knock included five sixes and<br />

two fours.<br />

Beatson, batting at No 5, then<br />

steered the innings home with an<br />

unbeaten 46 off 31.<br />

The hat-trick was the only<br />

highlight for Darfield as they<br />

were bowled out for 62 in the<br />

19th over.<br />

Earlier in the day, they lost to<br />

Sefton on the final ball of the<br />

match.<br />

Sefton scored a boundary,<br />

needing three runs from the last<br />

delivery.<br />

Motoring<br />

• By Ross Kiddie<br />

MY WIFE will tell you I’m not a<br />

big fan of supermarkets, and she<br />

is right, I see them as a necessary<br />

evil.<br />

However, there is one thing<br />

that I find favour with, and that is<br />

when it comes to pay, the item is<br />

scanned through the barcode and<br />

that is what it costs.<br />

It should be that simple when it<br />

comes to buying cars – one price,<br />

no discounts, what you see on the<br />

price tag is what you pay.<br />

Honda has utilised that price<br />

promise concept for several years,<br />

and it’s been very successful for<br />

the company, people rock up and<br />

there is no need to talk turkey<br />

over the price.<br />

Toyota, too, have just incorporated<br />

that method of selling and<br />

judging by recent sales figures it’s<br />

keeping Toyota in a comfortable<br />

position as the end-of-year sales<br />

figures roll in.<br />

Toyota’s success this year has<br />

also been buoyed by the arrival<br />

of a new Corolla, a car which<br />

doesn’t look that much different<br />

to that of the previous generation,<br />

but underneath it has had some<br />

significant changes for comfort,<br />

safety and driveability.<br />

The Corolla lands with a choice<br />

of five different models, two of<br />

those are hybrid. Regular readers<br />

will recall my hybrid evaluation<br />

at the beginning of last month,<br />

and it served to convince me that<br />

hybrids are a viable future as we<br />

head into the electric revolution.<br />

However, this evaluation surrounds<br />

the mid-spec SX model<br />

which has a traditional power<br />

plant, a 2-litre four-cylinder<br />

petrol engine. Gone is the 1.8-litre<br />

unit of the previous generation;<br />

in the name of progress, the new<br />

power plant is more refined than<br />

before, has more power and marginally<br />

greater fuel economy.<br />

Toyota rates the new engine<br />

with <strong>12</strong>5kW at the top end and<br />

200Nm of torque, up 21 per cent<br />

and 15 per cent respectively. The<br />

points of delivery are quite tall<br />

in the rev band – 6600rpm and<br />

4800rpm, however, such are the<br />

overall outputs there is still a<br />

broad spread of power. Take into<br />

account as well, the engine drives<br />

through a paddle-shift continuously<br />

variable transmission which<br />

is stepped through 10 points,<br />

which means the engine isn’t<br />

loaded.<br />

Together there is good harmony<br />

and fluid response to accelerator<br />

input. The engine feels quite zingy<br />

and strong, it works the rev band<br />

freely and, I guess, you’d expect<br />

nothing less, Toyota has built millions<br />

of Corolla engines and I’d be<br />

surprised if it didn’t feel right.<br />

It is also an engine which is<br />

light on fuel use. That’s a necessary<br />

criteria in these days of wayward<br />

fuel prices. Toyota claims<br />

a six-litre per 100km (47mpg)<br />

combined cycle average, which<br />

sits well with the fuel usage readout<br />

in the test car. It was showing<br />

a constant 7.2l/100km (39mpg)<br />

• Price – Toyota Corolla SX,<br />

Local<br />

News<br />

Now<br />

Nothing has changed in Corolla – except everything<br />

TOYOTA COROLLA SX: No-haggle price of $32,490<br />

SELWYN TIMES<br />

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

during a mix of pre-Christmas<br />

inner-city driving and a Port Hills<br />

loop. At 100km/h the engine<br />

is working over slowly at just<br />

1500rpm, returning an instantaneous<br />

fuel usage consumption of<br />

just 4.5l/100km (63mpg).<br />

My wife had a work Christmas<br />

function to attend in Barrys Bay,<br />

so the Corolla was used to travel<br />

to that event.<br />

The Christchurch/Akaroa<br />

Highway isn’t my favourite piece<br />

of road given the volume of traffic,<br />

but the Corolla responded<br />

well on the few overtaking<br />

opportunities that presented<br />

themselves. An overtaking time<br />

of 6.8sec is possible (80km/h-<br />

<strong>12</strong>0km/h), while from a standstill<br />

it will also launch to 100km/h in<br />

9.2sec.<br />

Those figures give you some<br />

indication of its zest and ability. It<br />

also handles nicely with beautiful<br />

steering and strong steering<br />

feedback. That’s no surprise,<br />

over the years Corollas destined<br />

for our market have had chassis<br />

engineering developed for our<br />

roads and that certainly showed<br />

on the twists and turns of the<br />

Akaora hill.<br />

Add in the development<br />

work Toyota has done with the<br />

chassis in the latest generation<br />

car and you have a dynamic<br />

handling vehicle, one which<br />

belies its role as a mainstream<br />

hatchback.<br />

Elsewhere, the Corolla stands<br />

out for its quality of build and<br />

high amount of fitment. At the<br />

new no-haggle price of $32,490,<br />

the SX includes all the features<br />

you need for convenience and, of<br />

course, comfort has been a high<br />

manufacturing priority.<br />

On the subject of prices, an<br />

entry-level base model Corolla<br />

is available for $29,990, and that<br />

would be the car for me, but if<br />

you want all the bells and whistles<br />

then the ZR at $37,490 is also<br />

there to tempt.<br />

According to Toyota’s<br />

advertising slogan, nothing has<br />

changed for the new generation<br />

Corolla – except everything. Sure,<br />

it looks like the Corolla we have<br />

come to know and love, and it<br />

certainly drives like a Corolla<br />

should, the only thing is that it is<br />

much better in every respect.

Fire rages, homes at risk<br />

DIVERSE: It’s time to harvest summer salad vegetables. (Centre and below) – Flowering annuals should be providing a wealth of colour. Only irrigate your lawn in<br />

cooler temperatures.<br />

Control the growth in your garden<br />

SUMMER IS here. It’s a hugely<br />

busy time in the garden with<br />

vigorous growth on most plants,<br />

harvesting of early maturing<br />

summer vegetables and preparing<br />

the garden if you are planning on<br />

heading away.<br />

Vege garden<br />

Summer salad vegetables will<br />

be maturing mid/late <strong>December</strong>.<br />

Regularly apply side dressings of<br />

fertiliser to enhance the growth of<br />

these plants. With quick maturing<br />

crops such as radishes, dwarf<br />

beans and lettuce, use succession<br />

planting (every two to three<br />

weeks) to avoid them all maturing<br />

at the same time and ensuring<br />

you have a constant supply.<br />

Plan you watering or irrigation<br />

programme to encourage strong<br />

plant growth while avoiding<br />

wasting any water. Apply mulch<br />

to reduce water loss and help prevent<br />

weed growth. Early planted<br />

potatoes should be ready to be<br />

harvested for Christmas Day.<br />

Continue to remove the lateral<br />

growth on your tomato plants<br />

until they reach around 1m, and<br />

tie up to stakes at regular points<br />

(every 100–150mm).<br />

Summer flowers<br />

With little effort, summer<br />

annuals can provide masses of<br />

colour and beauty in the garden<br />

or containers. Summer flowers<br />

include; ageratum, cornflower,<br />

cosmos, marigolds, petunias,<br />

portulacas, salvias, strawflowers<br />

and zinnias. Deadhead old finished<br />

flowers to encourage more<br />

flowering.<br />

Fruit trees<br />

Early stone fruit such as plums<br />

start to ripen towards the end<br />

of the month. You may need to<br />

remove some excess new growth<br />

and thin laden bunches of fruit<br />

to help promote heavy cropping.<br />

Water newly planted fruit trees<br />

and mulch as soils begin to dry.<br />

Berries and strawberries<br />

Boysenberries, blackcurrants,<br />

gooseberries and raspberries can<br />

be harvested in late <strong>December</strong>.<br />

They will be developing new<br />

canes that should be tied down<br />

or removed when there is<br />

excessive growth.<br />

It’s a great month for harvesting<br />

strawberries. Protect plants<br />

with bird netting so they don’t<br />

eat the fruit before you do. Place<br />

pea straw or crushed bark around<br />

plants so fruit are sitting on a<br />

‘clean bed’. Water as required and<br />

with the minimum of maintenance<br />

you should be harvesting<br />

delicious, juicy strawberries well<br />

into January.<br />

Roses<br />

It’s an excellent month for rose<br />

before the difficult months of<br />

January and February. It’s important<br />

to continue to deadhead finished<br />

flowers to encourage more<br />

blooms. Apply regular side dressings<br />

of rose fertiliser to encourage<br />

strong healthy growth. Carry out<br />

summer pruning to promote further<br />

flowering. Inspect your roses<br />

regularly for signs of blackspot<br />

and rust and instigate a regular<br />

spraying programme to control<br />

these diseases.<br />

Lawns<br />

Depending on specific summer<br />

weather conditions, lawns<br />

should either be in peak condition<br />

or beginning to dry out.<br />

Avoid mowing too low over hot<br />

summer months and do not<br />

apply fertiliser. If water supply allows,<br />

irrigate lawns in the cooler<br />

parts of the day. If you have<br />

bare patches appearing, you will<br />

need to be patient and wait until<br />

TASTE: Late <strong>December</strong> is the<br />

normal time to be picking<br />

berries.<br />

autumn before carrying out any<br />

repair work.<br />

Preparing the garden for<br />

summer holidays<br />

Because we traditionally<br />

holiday in the Christmas/January<br />

period, “deserting” the garden at<br />

this time can lead to problems.<br />

It’s better to plan ahead and be<br />

prepared. Avoid problems by not<br />

having your vegetable crops maturing<br />

during this time, applying<br />

a good layer of mulch and installing<br />

a timer or asking a neighbour<br />

to water your garden while you<br />

are away. This is especially important<br />

with plants in containers.<br />

Have a blooming fantastic<br />

Christmas and enjoy the holidays.<br />

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand<br />

has b en a proached in a bid to<br />

fina ly repair the potholes in New<br />

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.<br />

Coastal-Burw od Ward city<br />

counci lor David East wants<br />

WorkSafe to pre sure the car<br />

park’s private owners into<br />

repairing the potholes which are<br />

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.<br />

WorkSafe chief inspector<br />

a se sment southern Da ren<br />

Handforth said it may be able to<br />

take action under the Health and<br />

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a<br />

person conducting a busine s or<br />

undertaking.”<br />

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe<br />

is aware of the concerns raised by<br />

Cr East abou the car park.<br />

“WorkSafe has completed<br />

an a se sment visi to the site<br />

and is engaging with the owner<br />

to advise them that it is their<br />

responsibility to manage their<br />

risks a propriately.”<br />

Different parts of the car park<br />

are owned by various people<br />

and the Coastal-Burw od<br />

Community Board recently<br />

wrote to them about its concerns<br />

around health and safety.<br />

Cr East said the bi gest i sue<br />

in the past has b en ge ting in<br />

touch with the landlords and<br />

owners and ge ting them to<br />

agr e to anything. “The board<br />

a preciates that multi-ownership<br />

of the parking space may present<br />

a difficulty in co-ordinating<br />

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged<br />

to pa s these concerns onto you,”<br />

said the le ter.<br />

One reply has b en received so<br />

far from an owner who is wi ling<br />

to discu s the i sue. However, a l<br />

the owners would have to agr e<br />

to undertake work.<br />

Cr East said there had b en<br />

a “number of incidences” in<br />

the car park of people injuring<br />

themselves which had gone<br />

unreported.<br />

“I’ve always though that it<br />

has b en quite amazing that we<br />

haven’t had any serious a cidents<br />

or senior citizens perhaps<br />

tri ping in those potholes and<br />

doing themselve some damage.”<br />

He is confiden the new<br />

a proach wi l bring results.<br />

“I think the WorkSafe<br />

involvement may prove to be the<br />

lever that we are l oking for.”<br />

New bid to fix potholes<br />

Action looms<br />

facility in Shirley.<br />

It comes after the city council<br />

removed funding for the centre<br />

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the<br />

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This<br />

was the site of the former community<br />

centre, which was badly<br />

damaged in the February 2,<br />

20 1, earthquake.<br />

The removal o funding<br />

prompted community board<br />

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten<br />

to stan down, citing it as her “die<br />

in the ditch” project.<br />

Ms Jone said the board’s role<br />

is to represen the community,<br />

and by gathering signatures from<br />

residents, it was fulfi ling that<br />

role.<br />

“One of the roles of a community<br />

board is to represent and act<br />

as advocate for the interests of its<br />

community and this is what we<br />

are doing. The LTP and a nual<br />

plans are a l about lo bying the<br />

council.”<br />

Cave Rock<br />

Apartments’<br />

owners<br />

expect EQC<br />

sign-off<br />

this week<br />

• By Sarla Donovan<br />

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave<br />

Rock Apartments ar expecting the<br />

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off<br />

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.<br />

Body corporate chairman Mike<br />

White said the group had gone<br />

into mediation with IAG and EQC<br />

on February 20, and signed off<br />

on a deal with IAG on February<br />

2 – coincidenta ly seven years<br />

to the day after the February 2,<br />

20 1, earthquake. However, they<br />

are waiting for EQC to sign the<br />

agr ement.<br />

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted<br />

the agr ement, there’ l be no<br />

problem with them doing that.”<br />

The apartment suffere damage<br />

in the February and June, 20 1,<br />

earthquakes and were demolished in<br />

late 20<strong>12</strong>. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the<br />

difference betw en indemnity value,<br />

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,<br />

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body<br />

corporate.<br />

The mediation agr ement<br />

prevented Mr White from disclosing<br />

the se tlement amount, but he said it<br />

involved the two parties paying “a bit<br />

more money than they’d wanted to<br />

earlier.”<br />

A WOOLSTON butcher proved<br />

to be a cut above the rest in an<br />

international competition.<br />

New World Fe ry Rd butcher<br />

Jeremy Garth and his team, the<br />

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently<br />

came second a the World<br />

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern<br />

Ireland.<br />

It was the firs time Mr Garth<br />

had competed in the cha lenge<br />

and he was “rea ly proud” of<br />

how the team performed.<br />

“We produced some top quality<br />

products and came away<br />

with a g od result so we’re very<br />

ha py,” he said.<br />

The preparation for this year’s<br />

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was<br />

intense as the team members<br />

met in Auckland every two<br />

months for lengthy w ekend<br />

practices.<br />

Mr Garth, who has b en a<br />

butcher for 14 years, said the<br />

competition brought back his<br />

pa sion for the job.<br />

“Doing a l thi stuff and<br />

m eting new people, s eing new<br />

ideas, it just brings that flair<br />

back for you,” he said.<br />

Mr Garth hopes t own a<br />

butcher shop of his own someday<br />

but says for now he wi l focus<br />

on ge ting mor experience<br />

and on the 2020 cha lenge.<br />

“In two years’ time, we’ l be<br />

going back to try and win the<br />

title,” he said.<br />

A hearing i scheduled to be<br />

The bylaw comes as an increasing<br />

In the past year, the district<br />

AN U PER Ri carton butcher<br />

has proven himself to be a cut<br />

above his Au sie rivals at an<br />

international competition.<br />

Elite Meats owner Corey<br />

Winder was named in the a l<br />

star team a the World Butchers’<br />

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.<br />

Mr Winder and his team, the<br />

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which<br />

includes W olston butcher<br />

Jeremy Garth, finished second<br />

in the competition.<br />

He said the cha lenge started<br />

as a “transtasman test match”<br />

seven years ago.<br />

The preparation for this<br />

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge<br />

was intense as the team<br />

members met in Auckland<br />

every two months for lengthy<br />

w ekend practices. Mr Winder<br />

said coming second against 1<br />

other countries was a “fantastic”<br />

result.<br />

“To get second behind Ireland<br />

was a huge achievement and to<br />

be ahead of Australia is an<br />

even bi ger thing for us,” he<br />

said.<br />

But Mr Winder admires the<br />

Australian team.<br />

“Those guys over there<br />

[Australia] are on top of their<br />

game, they do a g od job,” he<br />

said.<br />

“And it just showcases that<br />

New Zealand has got some<br />

of the best butchers in the<br />

world,” he said.<br />

Mr Winder has b en a butcher<br />

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if<br />

THE PAPANUI-I nes<br />

Community Board has taken the<br />

rare step of starting a petition<br />

to figh the city council over<br />

funding.<br />

Signatures are being co lected<br />

in a bid to get funding for a community<br />

facility in Shirley.<br />

It comes after the city council<br />

removed funding for the centre<br />

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the<br />

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This<br />

was the site of the former community<br />

centre, which was badly<br />

damaged in the February 2,<br />

20 1, earthquake.<br />

The removal o funding<br />

prompted community board<br />

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten<br />

to stan down, citing it as her “die<br />

in the ditch” project.<br />

Ms Jone said the board’s role<br />

is to represen the community,<br />

and by gathering signatures from<br />

residents, it was fulfi ling that<br />

role.<br />

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave<br />

Rock Apartments ar expecting the<br />

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off<br />

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.<br />

Body corporate chairman Mike<br />

White said the group had gone<br />

into mediation with IAG and EQC<br />

on February 20, and signed off<br />

on a deal with IAG on February<br />

2 – coincidenta ly seven years<br />

to the day after the February 2,<br />

20 1, earthquake. However, they<br />

are waiting for EQC to sign the<br />

agr ement.<br />

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted<br />

the agr ement, there’ l be no<br />

problem with them doing that.”<br />

The apartment suffere damage<br />

in the February and June, 20 1,<br />

earthquakes and were demolished in<br />

late 20<strong>12</strong>. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the<br />

difference betw en indemnity value,<br />

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,<br />

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body<br />

corporate.<br />

The mediation agr ement<br />

prevented Mr White from disclosing<br />

the se tlement amount, but he said it<br />

involved the two parties paying “a bit<br />

more money than they’d wanted to<br />

earlier.”<br />

Week commencing WeDneSDAY, <strong>12</strong>TH DecemBeR <strong>2018</strong><br />

Exquisitely designed 5 bedrooms & 4 car garaging!<br />

If you’ve been looking for a property that oozes style &<br />

sophistication yet has been carefully thought out to cater for<br />

all your day to day needs, with so many extra’s that will leave<br />

you wanting for nothing more… then you’ll be excited you have<br />

finally found just that home! From the street, you’d be forgiven<br />

for thinking this home merely has a double garage, but once<br />

inside you’ll be overwhelmed to see an oversized 4 car tandem<br />

garage with drive through & additional workshop space, plus<br />

it’s also carpeted with a pull-down ladder for attic storage – a<br />

second ladder also in the hallway. This stunning 339m 2 home<br />

offers a large open plan living space with skylights & plenty of<br />

sliding doors to let the light stream in & enjoys seamless flow to<br />

the two outdoor deck areas & expansive lawn – an entertainer’s<br />

haven on 1076m 2 . You’ll love the central designer kitchen, with<br />

stone bench tops, double fridge space, twin wall ovens, 90cm<br />

cooktop & WIP with sink. A ducted heat pump/air con system<br />

& log burner caters for all year around comfort, & under tile<br />

heating in the bathrooms. The separate lounge with cathedral<br />

ceiling is an intimately special space. Heading down the wide<br />

hallway, you’ll find a large separate laundry with impressive<br />

storage, a separate toilet with basin, walk-in storage & 4 large<br />

double bedrooms – master having a WIR & tiled en-suite and<br />

access to the deck. The smaller 5th bedroom is located at the<br />

front of the home off the entrance, perfect for those who may<br />

wish to use it as a home office. We know you’re tempted!<br />

This Christmas we are<br />

offering you the gift of a<br />

Self-Sustaining Income<br />

and Growth Opportunity<br />

Kip McGrath Education Centre, <strong>Selwyn</strong> District, Canterbury<br />

20 years ago my husband Mark<br />

Larson and I (Anne Larson)<br />

discovered an opportunity to use<br />

our teaching skills to help students<br />

whose learning needs were not met<br />

well by mainstream education. We<br />

bought a Kip McGrath Centre and<br />

gave up the classroom for one to<br />

one individualized tuition. This was<br />

the start of our journey of personal<br />

and professional fulfillment<br />

through making a real difference<br />

for students.<br />

Kip McGrath understood that every<br />

child learns differently and developed<br />

a methodology to help children to<br />

catch up and keep up in the core areas<br />

of English and Maths. Now, more than<br />

40 years later, Kip McGrath Education<br />

Centres continues to tutor primary and<br />

secondary students all over the world to<br />

help them reach their full potential.<br />

Early in our journey as the business<br />

evolved quickly our daughter Mel joined<br />

the team. We were all very passionate<br />

about providing meaningful and<br />

successful engagement with learning<br />

for all students. We have been family<br />

owned and operated ever since. 5 years<br />

ago we became local as well when we<br />

started a new centre in Lincoln.<br />

As a tuition provider we have found<br />

such a wide range of people that needed<br />

and benefited from our tuition services.<br />

We have enjoyed challenging extension<br />

learners, providing second learning<br />

opportunities for adult students and<br />

uncovering New Zealand curriculum<br />

to Bi Lingual Students. We have found<br />

the potential in at -risk alternative<br />

education students. We have created<br />

long standing relationships with<br />

students who perform best with<br />

ongoing support through their school<br />

life. Some students we have worked<br />

with for 5 or 6 years. One of the most<br />

rewarding things on this 20 year journey<br />

has been working with students who<br />

have never done well at school who<br />

experience academic success for the<br />

first time.<br />

One of our students began working with<br />

us 18 months ago. At the start he had a<br />

reading age of 10 years old even though<br />

he was almost 16. Over <strong>12</strong> months of<br />

tuition he raised his reading age to 15<br />

years with 100 percent comprehension<br />

understanding. He has just completed<br />

NCEA Level 1 which would not have<br />

been possible without this help. His<br />

mum’s emotional reaction was worth<br />

every minute of hard work.<br />

We have loved the quality lifestyle we<br />

have by being Centre owners as well.<br />

We have had the flexibility to pursue<br />

more than just work at the centre and<br />

have a balanced work and home life.<br />

My husband Mark has been Principal<br />

of a large school while we have been<br />

in business and continues now in<br />

high profile education work. I have<br />

continued to have a full and busy<br />

family life while running the centre.<br />

We have 11 grandchildren now that I<br />

still have time to read with everyday<br />

and frequently babysit. An enormous<br />

challenge for us was our 35 year old<br />

daughter’s battle with cancer. We<br />

were able to take care of her at home<br />

and help her husband and their four<br />

children intensively over the 7 months<br />

she was ill. We were enormously<br />

grateful that we could adjust our<br />

schedule to take time to grieve when<br />

we lost her.<br />

Big News for us! We have decided after 20 years in successful business with Kip McGrath that it is time<br />

to sell the centre so another passionate teacher has an opportunity to make a difference. Anne and the<br />

teaching team will stay on when the centre sells so there will be no disruptive changes for students and<br />

their families. We will keep you all updated throughout as we look for just the right person to sell to.<br />

In the last two years since we lost our daughter, we have been ticking<br />

over with an existing data base, without marketing it to its full capacity.<br />

We would love to herar from a qualified teacher, who wishes to step out<br />

of the current Education System and take charge of your own destiny,<br />

add your own creativity and take advantage of the current growth in the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> area.<br />

The hours are flexible and students are allowed time off school to attend.<br />

Kip McGrath provide all the training and support you need and has a<br />

supportive business community throughout Canterbury.<br />

This business includes all the business tools and teaching components.<br />

There is the added opportunity of retaining myself and another teacher<br />

as tutors that would ensure “Business as Usual” to maintain minimal<br />

disruption to our students.<br />

We will take good care of finding the right person to sell to as we wish<br />

the centre to continue to contribute to our Communities future.<br />

We have handed over to Hannah McGowan from Harcourts Gold to<br />

market this opportunity. Hannah is well experienced in sales, finance<br />

and business operations.<br />

This is a business opportunity not to be missed and a<br />

great way to kick start your new year.<br />

The business must sell before the new school year.<br />

All offers will be presented.<br />

Your guide to all things Real Estate<br />

in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District<br />

Purchasing<br />

Choose a house design<br />

before finalising the section.<br />

the right<br />

section<br />

for you<br />

Aim for a sunny yard.<br />

Orienting a home towards the sun is<br />

critical when building for guaranteeing<br />

a warmer brighter home while adding<br />

value to the property.<br />

Before finalising the purchase of a<br />

section, sort out the basics of the house<br />

design you want and check it will work<br />

on that piece of land. Visit showhomes<br />

and look at how they are sited and talk<br />

to building company consultants, your<br />

architectural designer or architect.<br />

Weigh up where you want the sun to<br />

be at different times of the day. Once,<br />

kitchens and living areas were located<br />

on the cooler side of a home due to the<br />

coal range burning most of the day,<br />

which kept the home warm. Today,<br />

we look to the sun for that extra free<br />

heating so having sun in the rooms we<br />

use throughout the day is an advantage.<br />

For example, a sunny dining area around<br />

breakfast can be a nice way to start the<br />

day while warmth in living areas midmorning<br />

to late afternoon and sunny<br />

bedrooms later in the day can be ideal.<br />

With many sections there is a trade-off<br />

where some rooms may not get much<br />

sun. If possible position service areas<br />

like the kitchen, bathrooms, toilets and<br />

laundry on the south and southeast.<br />

Having a street view depends on<br />

personal taste while a sunny yard for<br />

outdoor living with some protection<br />

from prevailing nor’ westerly or easterly<br />

winds are also good aims. From the<br />

outset, work with your consultant or<br />

designer so you end up with the best<br />

possible design for your section and<br />

living needs.<br />

If building in a new housing estate<br />

its covenants will need to be observed.<br />

These rules state what is acceptable to<br />

the developer in keeping with the vision<br />

and standard for the subdivision. Some<br />

covenants are quite specific stating<br />

the type of cladding that can be used,<br />

acceptable roof pitch, and other design<br />

features, especially where they face the<br />

street. The types of materials and colours<br />

that can be used might also be required<br />

and a landscaping plan for the front yard<br />

expected.<br />

All details need to be provided to the<br />

subdivision developer and signed off,<br />

before the build starts. It is therefore best<br />

to address this before lodging building<br />

consent, in case critical changes need to<br />

be made to the design or materials. A<br />

bond is also often required to be lodged<br />

as protection against any damage to the<br />

roadside curbing and other aspects of the<br />

estate so factor this into your budget.<br />

The <strong>Selwyn</strong> District Council often<br />

requires a Geotech and soil test reports<br />

are included with any building consent<br />

application. If building in a new subdivision,<br />

talk to your developer’s<br />

representative as these may already be<br />

available. Of course, a due diligence<br />

check by you and your lawyer before<br />

purchasing any block of dirt will help<br />

avoid any issues.<br />

Having a street view<br />

depends on personal taste.<br />
