Latham hits back at council bosses

• By Julia Evans

COMMUNITY board member

Darrell Latham has hit back

at city council bosses over the

ongoing code of conduct issues.

Yesterday, Mayor Lianne

Dalziel and city council chief

executive Karleen Edwards said

they were “disappointed” in the

response of Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community Board

member Dr Latham, Coastal-

Burwood Community Board

chairwoman and deputy chairman

Kim Money and Tim Sintes,

who formally withdrew from

the code of conduct process in

November.

Ms Dalziel and Dr Edwards

said they are now considering the

next steps they need to take.

“There has been ample

opportunity for this to be

resolved,” Dr Latham said.

“We advised them in November

that we are withdrawing and

they’re considering their next

steps now.”

The board members and city

councillor David East, have

been facing code of conduct

complaints since September over

an allegation city council staff had

tampered with the District Plan.

The omitted clause gives leeway

to people in specific coastal areas,

deemed at risk of flooding, to

build and extend homes.

from the editor’s desk

IT LOOKS like the lawyers will continue

to gain from the ongoing code of conduct

matter involving Darrell Latham, and

other community board members from

across the estuary.

On page 1 we report city council chief

executive Karleen Edwards and Mayor Lianne Dalziel are

weighing up their response to the latest development in the saga.

That will certainly involve more legal advice, which will come

at a cost. It stands to reason the city council took legal advice

over the matter initially, which Latham and co’s lawyer says was

wrong.

But there will be even more to come out of this. It appears

the legal opinion given on the matter means community

board members may in fact not be subject to code of conduct

complaints. Interesting.

Latham ‘disappointed’ it took legal advice to understand rights

•From page 1

As a result of their outspoken

comments, Greater Christchurch

Regeneration Minister Megan

Woods approved the city

council’s proposal to amend

the District Plan under section

71 of the Greater

Christchurch

Regeneration Act.

Legal advice from

former Ombudsman

Leo Donnelly who

works for high-profile

law firm Chen Palmer

found community

board members are not

bound by the council’s

code of conduct under

the Local Government

Act 2002, which led

to the group

withdrawing.

Dr Latham said he

was “disappointed”

it took getting legal

advice for the group

to understand their

rights.

“All community

board members within

the Christchurch City

Council should be fully

aware of their rights

. . . there hasn’t been

that disclosure.”

The legal advice would set a

Karleen Edwards

precedent for other community

board members around the city

and the rest of the country, he

said.

Ms Dalziel and Dr Edwards

would not comment on Cr East’s

code of conduct complaint as the

process is ongoing.

The code of conduct

sets out the standards

of behaviour expected

from elected members

of the city council.

Penalties from code

of conduct complaints

range from a request

for an apology to

resignation.

“We stood up and

did the right thing

by our community.

A code of conduct

agreement is about

doing the right thing

and we did the right

thing,” Dr Latham

said.

The legal advice was

sought by the New

group that fundraised

money for the New

Brighton Pier and

continues to lobby for the area.

Society chairman Stewart

The work will be done at night.

The cable will be pulled through

the exhaust ventilation duct

“It’s the longest 11kV cable pull

in Orion’s history, and gravity

Bid to get pedestrian

REDCLIFFS residents

The Redcliffs Residents’

to city council for the

crossing.

There is currently no

crossing would be essential

“Barnett

pedestrian crossing.

“This is an issue that has

been raised previously

of concern.”

Dr Latham said

crossing the road to

get into Barnett Park

without a crossing

posed a serious risk to

pedestrians.

“Fifty per cent of

Our People

Steve Lowndes

Travelling the world paved way

Environment Canterbury

chairman Steve

Lowndes, who lives

in Birdlings Flat, is

not planning to run in

October’s local body

elections. Sophie

Cornish speaks to him

about life after local

politics, Brexit, and

family

The ECan elections are

coming up this year and I

understand you may not be

running again, is that correct?

Yes, that’s my position at the

moment. It is never finally settled

until the time for nominations

to close, but at the moment, that

is what I am thinking. I will be

73 at the time of the election, I

would be 77 by the end of the

next term. I feel fit and well

enough but on the other hand

I really think a person younger

than me needs to take the lead.

There is nothing wrong with

being old, you have a degree of

wisdom and all those sorts of

things that are invaluable in local

government. But, the world is

changing very quickly and there

are a lot of very tough decisions

that need to be made. I am very

much aware that young people

are getting very concerned about

their future. It is they who need

to step up and get engaged in

local government. When I say

young, we have a councillor

Lan Pham. She’s terrific. She

brings an attitude and energy

which is inspiring to the

council. There are other younger

councillors too. I think it would

be better to step aside and let

somebody younger take over.

What will you do instead with

your time?

I have never been frightened of

time. I have done all

sorts of things in my life and

being frightened of time isn’t

one of them. I can paint, I can

write, I can do all sorts of things.

Nothing is ever really over, the

fact that I stepped down from

ECan doesn’t necessarily

mean I will completely leave the

public forum. I have no plans at

all. It is a wonderful space to be

in, where you don’t have to worry

RELAXED:

ECan

chairman

Lowndes at

Flat home.

about your future.

Tell me about the beginning

of your career – how did it all

begin?

I was born and educated in

England and I went to art school

in the 1960s. My first job was as

an art teacher. After a little while

of that I thought: ‘Oh my god

am I going to be doing this for

the next 45 years?’ That sort of

freaked me out a little bit. So I got

a cargo boat to South America. I

ended up living there for a year

and a half year, mostly in Rio de

Janeiro, Brazil. I really enjoyed the

experience. From there I travelled

over land through South America

and Central America and the

Caribbean and the United States

and eventually arrived back in

England. And I thought: ‘Oh

well that was good.’ My ambition

then was to carry on. So I began

working in England again, as

a publican, which meant that I

could save money. I did that with

my partner Lisa Potts and then we

set off on a huge journey which

basically took us around the

world.

Where did you travel to?

We went through Russia,

Afghanistan, Iran, around India

and ended up in Australia. On

our trip, we only took one tiny

aeroplane flight; the rest was by

truck and train. Australia was

very kind to us; we both became

Australian and lived there for a

while. Then we got a boat across

the Pacific and it called in at

Auckland. That was my first

experience of New Zealand, in

1974. Then our boat carried on

and went through the Panama

Canal and back to Europe. I

then lived in England again and

thought we would go travelling

once more. So we got a plane to

New York and brought a car then

started driving around the US.

for chairman’s role at ECan

We had all sorts of adventures

in the US and Canada. We ended

up in San Francisco. At that point

Lisa became pregnant and a

friend Robyn we were travelling

with said: ‘Why don’t you go to

New Zealand, it’s a great place

to have kids’. So we did that. In

retrospect it is hard to imagine

that we didn’t head home, but no,

we came to New Zealand. We arrived

and brought a van in 1979

and started driving around. We

ended up in Akaroa and Lisa saw

the hospital there and said: “This

is where I will have the baby.”

Julian is now nearly 40-years-old.

He has a sister Alicia and they

both live in Australia, one in Sydney

and one in Melbourne. Lisa

and I split up in about 1998 and

my partner now is Susan

Morrow. We live at Birdlings Flat

and have been here for 20 years.

Tell me about your life living

in Akaroa?

The peninsula for me was representative

of a community, I had

spent 13 years travelling around

the world, community was something

I didn’t have, I didn’t belong

somewhere. Akaroa had a population

of about 700 people, a little

more than it does currently. It was

a self-sustaining little community

based on farming and fishing,

quite different to what it is today.

It was really a holiday destination

for Cantabrians, before it was

discovered by international tourists,

that began to happen in the

mid-1980s. Now, it is somewhat

overrun by cruise ships. It’s not

quite the same place it was in the

1970s, which is what attracted me

to it, a part from the fact it was

devastatingly beautiful. When you

went to live there, people were delighted

to know you had chosen to

live in that community, so you felt

part of it straight away. I started

off as a builder’s labourer, building

an extension to the school. I

gradually started to do work at the

Akaroa Museum and eventually

the curator retired and I was hired

to curate the collection. I was

there for about 15 years. I ended

up being chairman of the Museums

Association of New Zealand.

What happened next?

Then I became a Banks Peninsula

district councillor, with a

gentleman named Bob Parker and

we disbanded ourselves. The district

council wasn’t bankrupt, but

it was heading that way. There was

only about 7000 ratepayers which

wasn’t enough when we had to pay

for all things tourism. We tried to

amalgamate with city council, but

the people of Christchurch said

no. They didn’t want to take on

Banks Peninsula. So we decided

to vote to abolish ourselves and

the city council had no option

but to take over, this was in about

2005-2006. I stood for the city

council in 2006, and was defeated

by Claudia Reid. Then I started

painting, which is where I began,

by going to art school in the first

place. In 2016, someone said to be

why don’t you stand for ECan in

the election. You may recall that

in 2010, the Government took

away the commission of the elected

members of ECan and replaced

them with seven commissioners.

That continued for two terms of

local government until 2016. Then

ECan was opened up to partial

democratic elections. The chairwoman

Margaret Bazley finished,

so that left six ex-commissioners.

There were seven elected members

and six were remains of the old

appointed councillors and that

situation still remains. When the

council convened for the first

time, they voted for David Bedford

into the chair, he was

one of the councillors. Unfortunately,

David wasn’t very well and

he died in February of last year.

For some time he had been unable

to fulfil his role. I had been elected

deputy chair and I became the

acting chair until he resigned and

then I was elected into the chair

role.

Our People

ECan chair not frightened by time

•From page 7

So the role for me has been one

of managing the council back

to full democracy, which will

take place in October. A thing I

have been keen to do is see that

climate change becomes front

and central of ECan’s thinking.

That has come about with the

newly-elected people who arrived

on council in 2016, they have

made a huge difference.

What did you learn from your

travelling experiences?

I feel sometimes that all the

roads I have travelled have led

to this point. So I have a huge

amount of experience of the

world at large and of different

kinds of people and how to deal

with them. I find all the skills I

learnt while travelling fit me very

well for the role of managing

a great number of people who

have very different and distinct

interests. It is really about people.

A Maori proverb that helps to

describe me politically is – He

aha te mea nui o te ao He tangata,

he tangata, he tangata. What is

the most important thing in the

world? It is the people, it is the

people, it is the people. People are

the same everywhere all around

the world, it doesn’t matter if

you meet an Indian on the banks

of the Amazon River or an

TALENT: Steve Lowndes has a love of art, especially painting.

American senator, we all laugh,

we all cry, we all smile. It’s the

universality of people. We are all

the same species.

How does living in England

compare to living in New

Zealand?

I have been here for 40 years,

my immediate family in England

has died, I have a few cousins

left, I write to them. England

is about the same size, but the

population of New Zealand is

what the population of England

was at the time of Henry VIII.

Now you have to imagine the

same land mass, with nearly 60

million people. It is nothing like

New Zealand. Last week, Sue and

I went to Jackson’s Bay, down

south. We stayed in a bach which

had no power, no connectivity.

When you walked to the beach,

there are no other houses, and

there is an absolutely stunning

empty landscape of mountains,

oceans, beaches. You would

have to go a long way in Britain

to find that, maybe in the north

of Scotland. It’s a completely

different experience living

here. It is one where we relate

very much to the land. At the

moment with Brexit, the English

have got themselves into a cleft

stick. They have this incredibly

binary situation to deal with,

half of them think they should

stay in the common market and

fight and the other half thinks

they should flee. Human beings

always have that decision, when

confronted with a situation, fight

or flight. It’s such a basic division

in our minds, I think that is

basically what is happening

with Brexit. So, I don’t envy the

English at all. I can’t even begin

to contemplate how I feel about

England anymore, because it

seems to belong to another era.

In the future when climate

change really begins to kick in,

New Zealand is wonderfully

placed to survive the worst

effects. We are surrounded by

ocean which takes away the

worst effects of heat, we can feed

ourselves, Australia can’t, Europe

can’t, 90 per cent of the world’s

population lives in the Northern

Hemisphere.

Tell me about your

family?

Julian, my son, works for

Skope, a Christchurch company

that makes refrigerators. He

manages their operations in

Australia. He has a son, who is

6-months-old. Alicia works for

an advertising agency called The

Monkeys, living in Melbourne

but she is going to come back

to New Zealand. She managed

to buy a third of a house in

Auckland in Pt Chevalier she’s

going to come back next month.

I am looking forward to her

coming back. My partner Sue’s

daughter Evie also lives in Pt

Chevalier, so those two are very

close.

Players lured away from Bays’ squad

• By Gordon Findlater

FERRYMEAD BAYS have

been hit by a poaching raid

from second-tier Christchurch

United, which is offering match

payments and bonuses.

Several Bays’ players have

snubbed the Mainland Premier

League for the Canterbury

Championship

League. Bays

coach and former

All White,

Danny Halligan,

is also a defector

to Christchurch

United.

Danny

“It’s not about money,” he said.

“Players have a right to decide

where they want to play. I left

Bays on good terms and I’m

not aware of any animosity

anywhere.

“The carrot for the players is

the excitement of a new challenge.

They can see if Christchurch

United can get promoted

into the MPL then they’ve got

the facilities and organisation to

be a really strong club again,”

said Halligan.

One of the new Christchurch

United are giving it a good shot

and have enticed people, which

Cashmere Technical coach

Dean Hutchinson said he understood

Christchurch United had

aspirations in wanting to return

to the MPL.

“On one hand that’s a good

thing, but it’s an amateur league

so if it is true that they’re directly

paying players, then Mainland

[Football] have to do something

about it,” said Hutchinson.

Mainland Football chief

executive Julian Bowden says

SPORTS

it’s not unusual for players and

managers to move around clubs,

which can create rumours.

But as an amateur league there

are rules around player payments.

Of a Christchurch United

recruit telling Bay Harbour News

players would receive a $500

promotion bonus, Bowden said:

“That’s something we would

probably want to talk to the club

about.

“Players can be reimbursed

for expenses. If any players at

any clubs were getting income

it would be to reimburse things

like gear, travel expenses or

physio appointments,” said

Bowden.

“Under FIFA criteria, players

can be reimbursed up to a

certain level. There’s some principles

around that in the national

league and those principals flow

down into our regional league.”

Former Canterbury United

and MPL stalwart Stu Kelly

– whose Halswell United side

have seen their CCL promotion

chances drop with Christchurch

United’s new additions – said

players being paid is nothing new.

“In the rules you can’t [pay

players] but nobody’s tracking it.

In the North Island it’s been even

worse over the years, “ he said.

rebuild somewhat before the

introduction of Jonny Percasky

(5-42 off 16 overs) and Dan Vann

(2-50 off 14 overs), who managed

to tie down Lancaster Park down

and take the remaining seven

wickets to have them all out for

175. In reply, Sumner made an

excellent start, losing their first

wicket at 40 and their second at

70. At this stage, Sumner were

looking in control. But a small

stumble saw three quick wickets

fall and, at 79/4, things were back

in the balance.

Brett Taylor (68) and I

combined to put on 30 runs to

steady the ship again. When my

wicket fell for 27 with the score

at 130, Taylor decided to put the

foot down and counter-attacked

with some outstanding striking.

Sumner ended the day on 209 (34

runs ahead).

We were very pleased with how

we played today. At times we

were put under pressure but we

responded well to it.

Lancaster Park are a very

strong team and we get on well

with them off the field so it was

nice to have a good start. But we

will need to play well again next

week to take the outright win.

GAME TIME: Dan Vann gives the Club Captains XI a team talk

Des Lyon day raises $5000

• By Louis Day

SUMNER CRICKET Club

raised about $5000 during its

Des Lyon day.

Club captain Dan Vann said

they would have a more accurate

total once money from raffles

had come in.

The Presidents XI fell to the

Club Captains XI in the premier

match of the day, which included

current Canterbury Magicians

Nat Cox and Erin Bermingham.

The junior match kicked off

the day before Sumner Rugby

Club battled it out with an Invitational

XI.

The day was in

commemoration of life

member Des Lyons, a man

who contributed a considerable

amount of his time to sports

clubs across Sumner.

ALL SMILES: Aaron

Stanley-Joblin of the

Invitational XI raises the Shag

Rock trophy after beating the

Sumner Rugby Club XI.

“He was always involved in

a lot of different sports clubs

across Sumner, he was the guy

who would do the grounds,

would help with coaching, so

it made sense to have a day in

his memory when he passed

away.”

Mr Vann said the money

raised would go towards ground

costs, junior equipment and

general running costs.

RISK: The Port Hills fire of 2017. National list MP Nuk Korako

urges people to be alert during the high risk summer period.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Be careful with fire

Port Hills

National

list MP Nuk

Korako

reminds

people to be

wary of fire

risk during

high temperatures and

discusses the true meaning

of Waitangi Day

THE NEW year and summer’s

heat is baking us all – it really is

something else.

I hope you’ve managed to make

the most of the summer break

however long or short it may have

been for you.

The beaches around Sumner

and Taylors Mistake have been

busy with families enjoying the

sea and surf as well as the kids

enjoying Scarborough paddling

pool.

I remember our boys loving the

paddling pool and playground

when they were little and when

they were older they moved

towards rugby on the beach and

surfing.

With the heat our Port Hills are

extremely dry and we should all

be vigilant around fire safety as

well as be alert for anything that

can happen at any time.

You’ll remember the devastating

Port Hills fires so I really

encourage you to have plans in

place for you and your family for

any emergency situations which

may occur at any time.

School holidays are over and

the roads are once again busy. I

want to wish all the best to those

students and teachers who have

returned to school, and especially

the youngest new entrants just

starting out on their formal

education. May you all have a

fantastic year in the classroom.

Today is Waitangi Day – a day

for discussion, a day for remembering,

and a day for moving

forward.

Waitangi Day is a day to celebrate

where we have come from

as a country. It’s a chance to renew

the shared values that make

us, not only a unique country,

but the best country to live in the

world.

While the main celebrations

are at Waitangi itself, the Treaty

has signatories from all over New

Zealand including Akaroa. The

Treaty isn’t about a place, it’s

about people – it’s not a location,

it’s an agreement.

Waitangi Day is a day of

whanau and community, a coming

together of Māori and Pākehā

to celebrate an event that defines

us as a nation.

So enjoy your day off work and

enjoy in the spirit of Waitangi.

I will be at Waitangi this year

supporting our leader and the

National Party.

YOU KNOW that friend you

have that’s always eyeing up

what’s on your plate? They don’t

actually ask for anything, but

you eventually cave under their

longing stare.

Our darling little Vittoria

has begun mastering that art at

a young age and has taken it a

step or two further.

Unless she’s already asleep

when we eat, she’s out on patrol.

She wanders over, all cute smile

and wide eyes, to point at our

meal and say “ooook.”

If you won’t sacrifice a little of

what you’ve got, she steps it up.

A couple more “oook”s come

out before she starts fake crying.

Increasing the volume until you

give in.

Laura is her normal target,

she’s a soft touch, but me and

guests are also fair game when

needs be.

Now don’t think we aren’t

feeding her. Her little escapades

always happen after her own

meal and she’s expanding her

outlook to include all three of

the main meals of the day, as

well as snack times.

I haven’t eaten a full slice of

toast in a week.

On Tuesday I took Vittoria to

Willowbank with some friends.

Because of the timing, I took

along a packed lunch for both

me and her. Hers was flash;

Bolognese, fresh avocado and

rock melon for dessert.

My lunch of two sandwiches

literally came in a bread bag.

#bubseatsbetter.

I knew when she was getting

hungry, because she started

running her “oook” scam on

her friend’s mum to get some

of their banana, while we were

walking.

When we sat down to eat, she

gobbled up her meal, some her

friends rusk, some of my cheese,

a bit of my sandwich and then

demanded (and received) some

of my rock melon.

I can’t refuse her, of course

and it’s all healthy, so no big

trouble there.

There’s no point in

complaining about her

rapacious appetite anyway, she

inherited it from her parents.

Besides, she’s a growing

young lady and all that. Plus a

full day of animal excitement

meant she fell asleep before I

had my dinner.
