Residents’

groups trade

insults over

noise levels

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding issue lies with Ms Harnett-

Kikstra.

“We have never had a

complaint from the Templeton

community in ages . . . other

than (Ms Harnett-

Kikstra) asking

questions, there

have been no other

complaints at all,” he

said.

Ms Harnett-Kikstra

said the residents’

association is a “bunch

of petrol heads.”

THE LEADERS of two

residents’ associations have

exchanged insults over whether

Ruapuna Speedway is

noisy.

Templeton

Residents’ Association

chairman Garry

Kilday and Yaldhurst

Rural Residents’

Association

chairwoman Sara

Harnett-Kikstra are

in a row over whether

there are noise issues

at the track.

Ms Harnett-Kikstra

made an unsuccessful

noise complaint after

a burnout pad event at

Ruapuna last month.

An investigation

found noise levels

were not breached.

Mr Kilday said

there have not been

any recent problems

between Templeton

residents and Ruapuna – the

Mr Kilday hit back

saying Ms Harnett-

Kikstra is a “whinger”

and the Templeton

association is not a

bunch of petrol heads.

“I am the only one

that goes (to Ruapuna)

so how can it be a

bunch?” He questioned

why Ms Harnett-

Kikstra is complaining

about noise at Ruapuna

when she doesn’t live in

Templeton.

“A BUNCH of petrol heads.”

That’s the inflammatory comment fuelling

a row between the Templeton and

Yaldhurst residents’ associations (see page

1). The battleground is Ruapuna Speedway.

The dispute: Noise.

Templeton chairman Garry Kilday says as far as his association

is concerned, noise hasn’t been an issue for sometime.

Yaldhurst chairwoman Sara Harnett-Kikstra disagrees. She

filed a complaint recently about the noise at a burn out pad

event. An investigation found noise levels were not breached.

Harnett-Kikstra says the Templeton association is a “bunch of

petrol heads”. Kilday says she is a “whinger”.

“I am the only one that goes (to Ruapuna) so how can it be a

bunch?” he said.

Where will it all end?

Rural schools call

for 40km/h enforceable speed limit

2019

ON THE DOMAIN LINCOLN 2 MARCH 2019

• By Anan Zaki

RURAL SCHOOLS in the

district want to change an

advisory speed limit and replace

it with a punishable limit.

It comes as the district council

ended consultation on its speed

limit review on Friday.

Currently 10 schools across

the district advisory yellow signs

which say: “School Zone 40

km/h, slow down when children

present.”

One of the questions asked in

the consultation – which drew 46

responses – is whether all schools

should have a 40 km/h speed

limit outside of them.

The New Zealand Transport

Agency said police cannot ticket

drivers for travelling over the

limit on the advisory speed sign.

They have been used in the

district since 2014.

Three schools told the Selwyn

Times that the advisory signs do

not work.

Hororata School principal

Marty Gameson said the advisory

sign outside the school has

been unsuccessful.

“I think it needs to be a road

speed sign, not a recommended

speed. For us, you cannot tell if

children are present, because we

are off site from the road [Bealey

Rd],” Mr Gameson said.

“We also start at 8.45am and

finish at 2.45pm so those people

that think that ‘by 3pm I’ll watch

out for the kids’ – well our kids

are gone by 3pm.”

An NZTA spokeswoman said

speed signs that can be enforced

by police must have a red circle

around the speed.

“Police may still charge a driver

with dangerous driving if their

behaviour endangers children [in

a school zone with an advisory

sign].”

The principals of Glentunnel

School and Rolleston Christian

School also said the advisory

signs have not worked.

Glentunnel principal Dion

Stechmann said he was not aware

that the existing advisory signs

ENFORCE:

Broadfield

School on

Robinsons Rd

replaced with

limit.

were non-enforceable.

Mr Stechmann said the advisory

school zone speeds are not

respected by drivers that travel

past the school.

“The cars don’t slow down to

40 km/h. I see the traffic go past

my office window and they slow

down to 60 km/h maybe, but not

40km/h,” he said.

Rolleston Christian School

principal Liz Horn also believed

ROLLESTON LAW

drivers do not respect the advisory

speed.

“I think a 40 km/h would be

less confusing. People definitely

go past here faster than the advised

40 km/h speed,” Miss Horn

said.

“It’s also confusing about when

children are on site, because

people who don’t have children

may not know when people are

on site or off site because for us

we have before and after school

care.”

Broadfield School did not want

to comment as it was consulting

with the district council about

the speed limits outside the

school. Greendale School also did

not want to comment.

Principals from other schools

with the advisory signs were not

available for comment .

A public hearing on the

reduced speed limits which

recently went to consultation is

expected to be held before the

middle of the year.

Fire rages, homes at risk

Doyle leaves Weedons residents’ group

Plans to focus

on dog

show judging

• By Anan Zaki

NEARLY THREE decades

of fighting for the Weedons

community has come to an end

for Gary Doyle.

The affable 79-year-old has

just resigned as secretary of the

Weedons Residents’ Association.

“It feels a bit strange,” he said.

Mr Doyle has been secretary

for the past six years, and before

that he was a district councillor,

serving the Weedons community

from 1995 to 2010.

But his commitment to the

community started much earlier

– he was a policeman from 1964

1995.

“”The committee was formed

[in 1996] to fight a mushroom

factory, which was intended to be

built behind the Weedons School.

The Weedons people objected

to it and to fight it formed a

committee,” Mr Doyle said.

The residents won their battle

against the factory, he said.

Since then, there had been many

battles.

Mr Doyle’s resignation comes

along with another change in

the residents’ association make

up. Chairman John McKim also

stepped down from his role of six

years.

Mr Doyle said he will now

focus on judging dog shows,

something he has done nationally

and internationally since 1976.

“I’ve been all around the world

judging dogs. I’ve been to the

United States, Mexico, all around

the Pacific, Asia, South Africa

and even Pakistan,” Mr Doyle

said. “John [McKim] wants to

finish [building] his boat and

go sailing. And I’m knocking

on 80-years-old – I’ll carry on

judging dogs.”

A lot of the association’s battles

involved the district council. But

one of its biggest fights is against

the proposed Fulton Hogan

quarry near Weedons, which has

applied for resource consent.

“Particularly to do with road

works and speeds. Also [battles

with] the likes of the Richmond

Fellowship, which was bringing

in and buying houses for various

types of offenders which were not

acceptable for the general public,”

Mr Doyle said.

At last week’s full district

council meeting, councillor Mark

Alexander paid tribute to Mr

McKim and Mr Doyle.

“On behalf of council, I thank

them for their efforts on behalf of

their area and their residents,” Cr

Alexander said. “While we may

not always agree with what they

have come to talk to us about,

they’ve always come with passion

for their community.”

The change of guard at the

association marked the “end of

era” Cr Alexander said.

Said Mr Doyle: “Fortunately

we have a very good relationship

with council. They are well aware

that if the association disagrees,

they’ll be very vocal about it.”

He looked back on his days in

the association with pride.

“Fighting to solve a lot of

problems, which on the big scale

of things would be regarded as

minor but locally it would be

regarded as major,” Mr Doyle

said. “Speed limits, traffic control

and intersections – that type of

thing. Also keeping a close eye on

council expenditure.”

A new chairman and secretary

will be announced in the coming

weeks.

“I dream of a Pacific where this terrible disease has

been eradicated and can no longer cause fear, stigma

and discrimination in families and communities.”

Lorena and three of her children were diagnosed with leprosy.

Lorena says “Although our leprosy could be cured, we knew that

sometimes there can be serious effects from the disease, like

disabilities. I was terrified that more of my children would get sick.

But then the Pacific Leprosy Foundation started its new programme

which gives medicine to the rest of the family so that they are

much less likely to get leprosy. It was wonderful to have that

reassurance! Now I want the rest of the countries in the Pacific

to be able to take part in this programme, but I know that costs a lot

of money.”

Your gift of $35 will provide preventative

treatment for one household contact of a

leprosy patient.

A gift of $420 enables the treatment of an

average household in Kiribati, Samoa or the

Solomon Islands.

STOLEN: Five bonsai plants, some of which were more than 30-years-old, were

stolen from Texture Group nursery in Prebbleton last week.

‘Extremely rare’

See instore for details.

plants stolen

• By Anan Zaki

A PREBBLETON nursery

has been stripped of up to

$10,000 worth of plants

after a break in.

Texture Group owner

Hamish Prebble said

more than 40 plants were

stolen after the nursery’s

padlocked gate on Springs

Rd was broken into last

Wednesday.

Some of the stolen plants

were “extremely rare and

recognisable” and were not

for sale.

Mr Prebble believed it

was a targeted break in and

was alerted to the incident

after the nursery’s burglar

alarm went off at about

12.20am.

The stolen items included

five mature bonsai,

which were more than

30-years-old, a rare

wollemi pine – one of less

than 100 in the country – a

brahea palm, a japanese

umbrella pine and about 30

to 40 other plants including

puka, nikau, gunnera and

clivia.

“You just can’t replace

these things,” Mr Prebble

said.

“Whoever did it knew

what they were looking for.

They weren’t labelled and

out of the way, you’d have

to know [recognise] them,”

he said.

Police are in the process

of reviewing CCTV

footage from neighbouring

businesses on Monday

to determine if there was

footage of the offenders.

Said Mr Prebble: “It’s the

first time [in 25 years of

business] that we’ve been

targeted. We’ve had plants

stolen before but it was

more opportunist.”

“If I saw [the stolen

plants] I would know it. It’s

quite one off, particularly

the bonsai’s, if you’ve been

growing them for more

than 20 years you’d get a

fairly good idea,” he said.

Sustainability key

to organic farming

There’s something for

everyone in the realm of

organic farming but as far

as Bill Martin is concerned,

it’s all about sustainability.

The Training College

Manager at Lincoln

University’s Biological

Husbandry Unit Organics

Trust (BHU) is happy to see

a surge in enthusiasm for

organic food production

as younger generations

become more aware of

environmental concerns.

He says the growing

popularity of organic

production in recent years

means that graduates are

now taking what they have

learned into a broader

range of sectors.

“It’s not just about

growing, wholesaling

and retailing food anymore. They’re

going into schools and teaching primary

and secondary schoolers about the

importance of sustainable farming and

gardening and really starting to embed the

philosophy into the education system.”

As far as conventional agricultural

practices are concerned, he says farmers

should be encouraged to optimise their

production, rather than maximise it at the

expense of the environment.

“We need to change our agricultural

paradigm and re-evaluate our priorities.”

Mr Martin says those interested in a

career in organics should enrol in the

one-year Diploma in Agri-Food Production

LIN2813

Grow a career

in organics

Lincoln University’s Diploma in Organic Agri-Food Production will prepare

you for work in the organic sector or your own garden or smallholdings. It’s

a full-time, one-year programme that covers the theory and practice behind

contemporary organic agri-food production.

Join us in February to find out what growing organically on an agricultural

scale really means.

Learn more at www.lincoln.ac.nz or call 0800 10 60 10.

Students

are eligible

for a fee waiver

course, which is open to students either

with or without university entrance.

Introduced last year, it includes Tikanga

and Mahinga Kai components and can

lead to employment in organic primary

production or other sectors related

to organics, especially education and

hospitality.

“The course offers a good grounding

in the principles of organic agriculture,

teaching the philosophies and histories

of organics and providing practical

knowledge of how they are applied,” Mr

Martin says.

Apply now for the Diploma in Organic

Agri-Food Production and begin studying

in February 2019.

Warning: Don’t plant

on council berms

• By Anan Zaki

AN ARM wrestle between

a Prebbleton resident and

the district council has led

to warnings over planting

trees on berms.

Tony Gibson planted red

robins on the outside of his

fence on Birchlea Court

– which is

district council

property –

about a year

ago.

He did it to

try and dull the

traffic noise on

Birchs Rd.

But just before

In Brief

MOTORCYCLE CRASH

A man was moderately

injured after his

motorcycle crashed into

a ditch on Christchurch

Akaroa Rd near Tai Tapu

on Saturday about 9.30am.

The cause was not known.

. . . WARNING SIGNS

Electronic warning signs

are being installed on

the Christchurch Akaroa

Murray

Washington

Mr Gibson

arrived home

to find that

the red robins

were gone. A neighbour

informed him that the

plants were removed by the

district council.

District council assets

manager Murray Washington

told Selwyn Times that

residents are not allowed

to plant on berms without

council permission.

The council was also not

aware that Mr Gibson’s

plants belonged to him. The

hedge would have “overgrown”

and they had to be

removed, Mr Washington

said.

The district council

alleged that Mr Gibson

himself poisoned two trees

– a cherry and a maple tree

owned by the council.

“Council staff met with

Mr Gibson on site, and he

acknowledged

that he had poisoned

the trees.

The council does

not have any record

of Mr Gibson

previously raising

any concerns over

the trees,” Mr

Washington said.

Mr Gibson

strongly denied

poisoning the

council trees.

“That really

annoys me, they have got to

be careful about what they

say.”

Mr Gibson said he met

with a council reserves

worker after his red robins

were removed, but did

not meet with the council

about its two trees.

He had “no problem”

with the cherry and maple

tree the council owned and

said the trees were already

dying when he moved into

Rd by the New Zealand

Transport Agency to

improve safety, particularly

for visitors and tourists.

One sign will be installed

in Tai Tapu for motorists

driving towards Akaroa

and a second sign will be

installed in Duvachelle for

motorists driving towards

Our People

Debra Hasson

Hasson’s love of art, travel and politics

Springston’s Debra

Hasson has had a seat

at the district council

table since 1995. The

longest current serving

councillor talked to

Anan Zaki about her life

in and out of politics

Why did you enter local

politics?

I worked previously for

Waimairi District Council,

prior to it being amalgamated

into Christchurch in 1989,

when we went through a series

of amalgamations of councils.

During that time, myself and

my partner, Mike, purchased

a property in Springston. So

we moved from Christchurch

to Springston and our son was

born. And basically, I questioned

a rating process. So having

questioned something, I decided

that sure, if you’ve got a voice

and you’re criticising something,

you also need to be part of that

solution. That’s why I decided to

stand. To try and solve the issues

that I saw. And if the community

saw those issues as well, then

they would support me and

consequently they did and I was

elected.

Did you ever see yourself

being the longest serving

member at the council table?

Not really. I sort of found

a niche that I actually enjoy

being involved in public policy.

I actually enjoyed working

alongside communities and

volunteers within communities

and actually giving them a

voice in council. When I first

got elected to council we only

got paid an honorarium. At the

time, I’m thankful that I had a

supportive partner and we had

a five-year-old. The community

rallied around and after school

they actually looked after our

son while Mike was at work and I

was at council meetings. So it was

the support of the community

that actually helped me be at the

council table.

HOBBY: Long-serving Selwyn district councillor Debra Hasson is passionate about

collecting art.

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

What are some of the biggest

changes you’ve seen in your

time as a councillor?

It took three females on

council to establish a community

committee within council. We

had the standard assets, standard

planning and standard corporate,

and community services were

normally run under corporate.

With the assistance of two other

female councillors, we managed

to separate it out in a stand-alone

unit. That’s been the best story.

I’m glad to say that from being a

lonely voice for the environment,

we now have environmental

responsibilities becoming

mainstream within local

government. It’s really pleasing

for someone like me and I’m still

a strong advocate for it.

What do you do outside of

council?

We as a family have always had

an interest in collecting antiques,

supporting local history and local

arts. We always went garage sale

hunting and we still sometimes

go.

We’re both members of

the North Canterbury Game

Shooters Club and have been

for the past 30 odd years. And

I also play a role in community

committees outside council. Just

because I know how hard it is to

support volunteers.

Has art always been a hobby

of yours?

I actually did art history at

Canterbury University as one of

my subjects. That came about

because I had the opportunity

to travel for five years on my OE

and I became interested in art.

Lately it’s just been that we

have some really good talented

local artists in Selwyn. I buy

art because I like it. I have a few

pieces that are really precious to

me. And they represent Selwyn

or our local community or the

environment.

At the moment, I’ve got

landscape [art], I’ve got political

art, I have a lot of native birds.

It varies. I’ve got two pieces of

Henry Turner. He’s a young,

talented artist from West Melton,

and he’s really brilliant. I’ve got

three pieces of Henry’s.

What did you do at the

Waimairi District Council?

I was actually a dog

control officer. Then with the

amalgamation I went across to

the Christchurch City Council

and was involved in dog policy in

the environmental unit. Then I

left and moved out to Selwyn.

Tell me about your family?

My partner of 38 years is Mike

and we have a son, Drew, he is

now independent at 29-years-old,

with a partner and a mortgage

living in Selwyn. It’s nice for him

to come home for a visit.

How did you and Mike meet?

Through mutual friends

as flatmates while I was at

Canterbury University. Just

through mutual friends from the

flats we were in. And Mike now

works at Landcare Research.

You mentioned you travelled

for five years, where did you go?

I left New Zealand when I

was 18. I had my 19th birthday

in Acapulco, Mexico. Then

travelled across to Portugal,

travelled around Europe and

finally ended up in London.

Then from London, I used it as

a base and travelled through to

Canada and around Maine and

Vermont in the United States.

Then I spent some time in Israel

and then finally came back

and landed in Christchurch.

I lasted three weeks and went

to Australia. I spent a year in

Australia and I decided I had to

settle down so came back and

went to Canterbury University

and did a Bachelor of Science in

zoology. I’m still very fortunate

that we can travel. Because we

are fortunate in being able to do

this travel, for the past 20 years

we have taken the opportunity

support, through World Vision,

children in Cambodia. We

actually support one currently

in India. It’s just giving back that

social responsibility because

we’re so fortunate in New

Zealand and you don’t see it until

you travel overseas.

ANNUAL PLAN 2019-20

E19/7226

Environment Canterbury is considering its 2019-20

Annual Plan.

While the plan largely aligns with the most recent

Long-Term Plan, small changes to our fees and charges

policy and our revenue and financing policy are being

considered. Increased funding of public transport to

match funding from NZTA and increased funding in water

management, pest control and biodiversity are also being

considered, as well as a reduction in air quality funding.

These will impact on some ratepayers, depending on

their location, when the 2019-20 Regional Council

rate is confirmed.

•From page 11

What are your favourite

things about Selwyn?

Just recently, it’s the positive

comments coming back that we

are one of the highest performing

councils in managing growth in

New Zealand.

And what’s great about living

here?

The open space. We’re

fortunate we have been able to

purchase where we are when we

moved from Christchurch. It

was very rural but it was always

a dream of Mike’s to own a

small farm. And we had the

opportunity to purchase it. We

had to do a lot of work to break

in the land to farm it. And our

neighbours have been really

stable in the locality that we

live in and they’re great friends.

That’s what helps make the place

100%

Capital gain

to the resident

enjoyable to live in, the friends

that you make. Drew going to a

rural school like Springston, he’s

still really good friends with the

kids he went to school with and

we’re still good friends with the

parents. That social community

that we’re very fortunate to have

in Selwyn. I have to question

it now because we are growing

in our main centres, but I am

positive about the fact that people

can connect.

Where did you grow up?

I grew up in Greymouth on

the West Coast. I’ve got relatives

back there. My parents moved to

Oxford when they retired. Apart

from visiting relations I really

haven’t been back there.

Do you miss the West Coast

or do you prefer the drier

weather in Selwyn?

The scenery and everything

on the Coast is really nice. But

I prefer the lifestyle that I’ve got

now.

What advice do you have for

younger people who might want

to stand for council one day?

Being a younger person

standing for council, you have to

have that support base out there.

You don’t do it for the money.

You do it to put your energy or

your views or your time back into

the community.

The way you get paid is not

a lot, and it’s a lot of time. The

amount of time I would now

spend at council compared

to when I was first elected

is ten-fold, because of the

responsibilities we now have

under a lot of legislative acts and

what’s being passed through

from central government to local

government.

BEFORE WE get into this, I

need to say, still no luck on

finding my mouse. That bad boy

is probably long gone.

I’m beginning to dread future

hide and seek games, will I

disappear too?

However, over the last week

Vittoria has started holding

some things closer, and it’s very

cute.

She gets her favourite soft

toys, like her Dragon, wraps

her wee arms around them

and gives them a big, smiling,

moving side-to-side cuddle.

Dragon even gets a couple of

kisses on his cheek sometimes.

Very, very cute.

She even gave someone else’s

teddy a big cuddle at Baby

Times. I can’t wait to see her

give her friends big hugs too.

Last week started out

productively. Over the weekend,

Laura and I cleaned the whole

house (hence the mouse update)

with a focus on Vittoria’s room.

Her room has seen a lot of use

for storage, including her cot.

We’ve been co-sleeping with

the wee darling for a while now.

She got sick last year which

ended a joyous run of full nights

of sleep until we gave in and let

her into the big bed.

VITTORIA

& Matt

Long road ahead

getting back to cot

Thing is, getting her back into

sleeping in her own bed is not

going to be easy.

In bed with one of us, she

can roll over, touch us and get

reassured straight away that

she’s safe and with her parents.

In the cot, not so much.

It really highlights how much

like a little prison those things

are when you see your daughter

standing there, holding the bars

and crying like the world just

ended.

And if you’re used to having

your parents next to you when

you settle back to sleep, dad just

holding your hand is not going

to cut it.

So we’ve got a long road ahead

to get her back to a place where

she feels safe in her cot and

happy to sleep there all night.

A lot of that road will involve

very little sleep too.

To add to the difficulty, this

week Vittoria and I have got

some sort of cold. It may be

unfair, but I’m pretty sure I

got it off her since we spend so

much time in close proximity.

Your Local Views

West Melton resident

Peter Fry writes about the

proposed skate park in the

town, which the Selwyn

Times covered last month

I write in support of Bruce

Russell’s sensible statement that

the logical and correct placement

of a possible skate park in West

Melton is adjacent to the splendid

new community centre and within

existing and planned sporting

and recreational services.

The safety of users of recreational

facilities is a complex issue

requiring constant monitoring

– surveillance cameras have been

found to be essential – immediate

access to first aid not just when

the medical centre is open, ongoing

supervision and safe access to

toilets are major considerations.

Country wide planners recognise

these issues and it has not

been possible to find an example

of a stand alone skate park established

anywhere within a quiet

residential neighbourhood.

Using the land allocated within

a “family area” with established

facilities is fully logical, is the

most economic use of the council’s

(ratepayers’) funds and in

the broadest sense, is the safest

option.

However, this issue has served

as a catalyst to address and to

halt the years of neglect of Retford

Common. Open spaces are

increasingly scarce treasures intended

for the use of all members

of the community and as such

deserve appropriate maintenance

and care. At present trees are dying

on the common, the installed

water hydrants are unused, the

unsuitable and unsightly limestone

chip paths are scattered and

thin and overgrown with weeds,

the grass is roughly cut at irregular

intervals and the attractive

gazebos require maintenance.

Retford Common was intended

to be a truly beautiful, much used

space and a major asset to the

entire West Melton community.

To this end it is intended that the

Friends of Retford Common will

work with district council planners

to find solutions to restore

and enhance this important open

space and to provide an aesthetically

pleasing environment that

is useful to members of the community,

of all ages, throughout

the year.

Hot air balloons return

HOT AIR balloons are set to

return to Hororata.

The balloons will be part of the

Hororata Night Glow, which will

be held in May.

Event organiser, the Hororata

Community Trust said the inaugural

Night Glow last year

captured people’s imaginations.

“Hot air balloons hold a

certain magic and the Hororata

Community Trust is very excited

to be bringing the Night Glow

back for a second year. The

festival last year was amazing,

not only for its entertainment

value but it also benefited our

community in many ways,” said

Hororata Community Trust

executive officer Cindy Driscoll.

The event received recognition

by winning the 2018 Selwyn

Tourism award.

“The balloons are undoubtedly

the main attraction of the festival

but we have new surprises in

the pipeline which will see the

Hororata Night Glow build on

what we did last year, details of

these will be released soon,” Mrs

Driscoll said.

Recently applications for stall

holders opened. Businesses and

community groups have until

March 25 to apply.

The community trust committee

is also seeking expressions

of interest from performers

and bands interested in being

involved.

The Hororata Night Glow will

be held Saturday May 18 at the

Hororata Domain, 3-8.30pm

Postponement date is Sunday

May 19.

Discounted tickets will be sold

online from April 1.

• By Anan Zaki

THE FUTURE of a riverside

community is at risk due to

slow planning, residents say.

Plans for a new wastewater

consent at Selwyn Huts on the

banks of the Selwyn River are

not under way.

Homeowner and residents

representative Graham Evans

spoke at the full district

council meeting last week.

“I’m very disappointed to

against invaders, such as

wasps, ability to be managed

and transported, ability to

work in colder conditions and

higher longevity of workers

and queens.

Workers are known to live

as long as 152 days. However,

there is a global colony decline

around the world. This has

been attributed to a number

of factors, including colony

collapse disease, habitat loss,

be standing here today,” said

Mr Evans, who is a third

generation Selwyn Huts

holiday home owner.

Before 2011, the community

was governed by an elected

board or committee, separate

to the district council. But in

2011, the district council took

over full governance of the

Selwyn Huts.

“We are aware that the

consent for sewer and water

waste is to run out in June

pesticides and varroa mites.

The mites, which arrived in

New Zealand in 2000, can be

managed easily in hives but

it is unknown how well feral

populations have fared – there

may well be some valuable

varroa-resistant populations

2020,” Mr Evans said.

An expired consent could

force residents out of the

community, he said. There are

about 100 permanent residents

in Selwyn Huts, who live on

land leased from the council.

District council chief

executive David Ward said he

was confident action would

be taken before the existing

consent expired in June next

year. He said council staff

are currently in discussion

out there. The apiculture

industry is worth $5 billion to

New Zealand’s economy.

This is why the Ministry for

Primary Industries’ border

security is so important to

keep new bee diseases from

entering our country.

Residents concerned about future of Selwyn Huts

with the Department of

Conservation, Environment

Canterbury, homeowners and

Ngai Tahu about a new waste

water consent. “I’ve got total

confidence in staff that are

leading the discussions,” Mr

Ward said.

Mr Evans says he is still

worried the council may have

left things too late. “If we don’t

have consent, we won’t have

any system to take our waste

water away,” he said.

More Selwyn residents than ever before now have organic bins and existing residents are using their

organic bins a lot more than this time last year, resulting in a decrease in waste going to landfill.

The district is seeing strong growth in organic waste tonnes, with nearly 1200 tonnes or 22% more

organic waste received than at this time last year while total waste to landfill is tracking towards a

4% decrease on a per capita basis.

Council Solid Waste Manager Andrew Boyd says he’s very pleased with the reduction and wants

to continue to encourage less waste going to landfill, by greater use of recycling and organic bins.

“We’ve got a number of waste minimisation projects in the pipeline. We’ll be looking to expand

access to recycling services for off-route properties, expanding the range of materials accepted at

community recycling days, and also a number of improvements at the Pines Resource Recovery

Park,” he says.

There are also Council-supported workshops coming up in mid-March at the Rolleston

Community Centre focusing on waste-free parenting and how to minimise food waste when

cooking. Keep an eye on Council Call and Council Facebook for details on these.

A new playground climbing structure being imported from Germany is expected to be installed at Levi

Park, Rolleston, in late May this year.

The new playground, suitable for children four years and over, replaces the existing playground which

had experienced drainage and slumping issues which resulted in the playground area becoming heavily

water logged. A geotechnical engineer has advised Council that this issue is isolated to the playground

area and does not affect any nearby residential properties.

Drainage works began in November last year and are expected to be completed at the end of this

week.

Council Property and Commercial Manager Douglas Marshall says a strip drain will be installed across

the opening to the tennis courts to improve future site drainage.

“Excavations to three metres have now shown that if the existing structure was to remain on site,

further settlement or slumping of the playground structure would occur,” Mr Marshall says.

“The new playground equipment will be more suitable for the remediated site and I’m pleased that

we’re able to salvage the old equipment and place it in another area for more children to enjoy. Thank

you to nearby residents for their patience and support as we make Levi Park a safe playground for the

community.”

The existing see-saw will remain on the Levi Park playground site. A new set of swings will be installed

with a standard swing seat and a fully enclosed toddler swing seat.

The Council is currently looking at an alternative site to relocate the existing playground and basket

swing to a new site in Rolleston. This will be confirmed soon.

Levi Park Playground is likely to be re-opened in June.

Late night Lyttelton Tunnel closures

From Sunday 24 February, you’ll need to plan your

travel around late night tunnel closures.

These are essential to both install and test a new fire protection

system inside the tunnel.

Work on this $28.7 million project is expected to be completed

by April/May 2019.

Traffic lane closures are timed for late night/early morning

on the lightest tunnel traffic days of the week, that is Sunday,

Monday and Tuesday.

In conjunction with the late night tunnel closures, we are

carrying out maintenance on SH74 (Tunnel Road) to ensure

fewer nights of disruption for motorists and residents. Work

includes replacing some guardrails and road resurfacing work

between Port Hills and Horotane Valley overpasses as well.

Lyttelton-bound traffic into the tunnel for the 10-minute openings

will be unaffected. Traffic leaving the tunnel towards Christchurch

will have to exit onto SH76 Port Hills Road.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

• Real-time traffic information for the Lyttelton Tunnel area is

available at www.tfc.govt.nz

• A schedule of tunnel traffic lane closures can be found at

Teenagers and Wellbeing

Being a teenager is really hard. The teenage

brain is undergoing a major transformation

and during these years our young people can

really struggle. They need our help (even if they

say they don’t) and we need to give them clear

expectations whilst also teaching them tools to

help them flourish both academically and with

their own well being.

How does all of this look at

Rolleston College?

The Rolleston Spirit

Girls Hui about well-being

Why Wellbeing?

As a society we place great emphasis on being

active, feeling fit and eating well and this also

applies to keeping our mind fit and well. Mental

fitness is just as important as physical fitness and

the two are usually linked. If we are feeling fit, we

tend to eat well and therefore feel good on the

inside. We begin to notice how we are feeling and

can achieve our goals and connect with others

in a positive way. The positive emotions that are

associated with wellbeing give us strength in all

areas of our life and give us the skills to deal with

issues when they crop up.

What is Wellbeing?

Through our work with Lucy Hone, she uses the

definition from Felicia Huppert & Timothy So,

from Cambridge University who define wellbeing

as “feeling good and functioning well”.

Wellbeing is linked to happiness and builds

resilience to get through the tough times and

enables us to flourish.

Emily Taylor, Alex North Learner

Team behind the design of the new

Rolleston Spirit poster

Rolleston College is one of many New Zealand

schools to implement the Ministry of Education

Positive Behaviour for Learner School Wide

Framework. At our school this framework has

been adapted to work within the context of our

school and our learners. The purpose of Positive

Behaviour for Learning-School Wide (referred

to as Ready to Learn at Rolleston College) is to

ensure the Rolleston Spirit is flourishing within

our school. The staff have a strong belief that

learners need to be Ready to Learn and Ready

to Flourish. If a learner performs poorly in a

learning task we teach them what steps to take

next, if they struggle at a particular sports skill,

we teach them how to improve, if they can not

play a musical instrument we teach them how to

play, yet traditionally, if they behave differently

to what we expect… we punish them. PB4L aims

to use teaching behaviour as a tool for improving

behaviour.

Ready to Flourish

We already know that in education one size does

not fit all so we promote learners having access to

a wide range of wellbeing resources that we call

our ‘Hauora Kete’. The contents in the Kete are

taught to learners and staff in various ways across

our learning programme. Some of the tools in

our kete are:

• Character Strengths - According to the

VIA Institute on Character (www.viacharacter.

org), every individual possesses all 24 character

strengths in different degrees, giving each person a

unique character profile. Knowing your signature

strengths is a tool that can help you through times

of struggle. Knowing and growing your core

strengths can also help you to flourish and build

your wellbeing. At Rolleston College, all staff and

Learners take the free online test and know their

Character Profile. This is then applied to their

learning and celebrated through Character Theme

weeks and World Character Day. Character

Strengths are also used in Goal Setting and can be

a useful tool when restoring situations

• Five Ways to Wellbeing - The Mental Health

Foundation promotes this as a key wellbeing tool.

‘5 ways’ includes Take Notice, Be Active, Keep

Learning, Connect and Give. They are actions

that can be incorporated into your life at any

time. Some learners find this is an easy way in to

understanding wellbeing.

• Mindfulness - Mindfulness is paying

attention to our thoughts and feelings, learning to

slow things down so we can react and see things

more clearly.

From 2017 the Pause, Breathe, Smile programme

from the Mindfulness Education group was

taught across whānau. This programme has

clear links to the New Zealand curriculum and

is also explored at some of our feeder schools.

This means learners are coming to Rolleston

College with an understanding of mindfulness

practices and how it can help them with focus

and learning. Through the eight sessions in the

programme our junior learners are able to engage

in mindfulness practices and to understand

how mindfulness can support their learning and

achievement.

In 2018 all staff spent the day with John Quinn

who is the Director of Wellbeing and Positive

Education at Christs’ College and has lead a three

year implementation of positive education both

in and out of the classroom. Rolleston College

aims to further integrate mindfulness practices

into our curriculum for senior learners to

support their educational success.

• Te Whare Tapa Wha - This is a key wellbeing

model that forms the foundation of our hauora

practices. It recognises the four cornerstones of

health. Should one of the dimensions be missing

or damaged a person can become unbalance. The

four pillars are: Taha Tinana (Physical Health)

this is the capacity for growth and development;

Taha Wairua (Spiritual Health) our capacity for

faith and communication; Taha Whānau (Family

Health) this is belonging, caring and sharing

with family and wider society; Taha Hinengaro

(Mental Health) this is to consider our thoughts,

feelings and emotions. Learners start their year

9 journey developing an understanding of this

model and create their own whare to support

their understanding.

• Check and Connect - this is a way of

connecting with our learners on a daily basis

and in all learning vehicles. There are a variety

of ways that Check and Connect can operate -

with the essential outcome being that all learners

know that they have staff who care, are ready to

help, and work together to create a flourishing

learning environment. The learners can use and

practice the tools from their kete, just as you

would use and practice numerical skills.

New tool helps farmers

gauge carbon footprint

A new carbon calculator that gives farmers

a guide to the size of their carbon footprint

has been developed by Lincoln University’s

Agribusiness and Economics Research Unit

(AERU) and Agrilink NZ, with financial

assistance from Meridian Energy and Westpac

NZ.

Alison Howard, Head of Sustainability at

Meridian Energy, is welcoming the release of

the calculator.

“We know a lot of our farming

customers are going to a lot of effort

to run their operations in a sustainable

way, and are worried how a zero

carbon target for the country might

affect them.

“This calculator gives them a quick

way to find out their impacts. We know farmers

are always looking for ways to contribute

positively to the future of New Zealand and

this is just a small way we thought we could

help.”

Westpac NZ Head of Commercial and

Agribusiness, Mark Steed, wants farmers to

know that they are supported in making better

choices, both for their farms and the country.

“We know farmers care about climate

change. Farming is a long-term business and

the changing climate is already having an

impact.

“We hope this easy way to calculate their

farm’s carbon footprint will help them

make decisions and guide the sustainable

development of their business.”

The greenhouse gas calculator was originally

prepared in 2008 to better inform the Food

Miles debate.

It has now been updated to give farmers a

quick approximation of their carbon footprint;

it is not intended to replace

detailed greenhouse gas

modelling tools.

As carbon can be a

very abstract concept,

the calculator compares

a farm’s greenhouse gas

emissions to the distance

travelled in a car, or the area that could be

planted to offset their emissions.

Andrew Barber, Managing Director of

Agrilink NZ says “owners of a variety of

farm types can use this calculator, including

horticulture for example, where farmers may

not have access to detailed carbon footprint

tools.

“Like all farmers, they can enter their energy

use, as well as that of their contractors, to better

understand their carbon footprint.”

The calculator is available at www.lincoln.

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Preventing rural crime

The Police are aware of stock theft being

an issue across rural communities in New

Zealand and all complaints of stock theft

are taken seriously and followed up as

appropriate.

They encourage rural property owners

to make security a priority and ensure they

are taking measures to help prevent thefts.

A lot of reported

thefts are committed by

opportunist criminals

simply looking for that

insecure shed or a farm

vehicle with the keys left

in the ignition.

Owners of large rural

properties should check

their boundaries and

fence lines on a very

regular basis. Keep

in contact with your

neighbours too and let

each other know if you

notice anything unusual. Neighbourhood

Support groups can be particularly useful

for this purpose.

For farmers, it is crucial you regularly

review your auditing systems, in terms

of management and the security of stock.

Clearly tag animals - regardless of the size

of your property, stock numbers should

be checked once a week. Items such as

animal tags and equipment should be kept

in a secure facility. Additionally, ensure due

diligence is carried out around any new

staff who are hired.

Contact the Police immediately if you

witness any suspicious behaviour, need to

report a theft or have other information

which may assist us.

Keep in mind police may need to travel

long distances to get to you.

Call 111 when you need immediate help

with a life-threatening or time-critical

emergency.

Some emergencies will

need more than one service

(Fire, Ambulance and Police)

so ask for the service which

is needed most urgently. All

emergency services have

links to each other and the

first service called will notify

the other services if they are

required.

For non-urgent situations,

call or visit your local police

station.

Crime prevention in rural

areas is most effective when it involves a

partnership between rural people, Police,

local authorities and local organisations.

Police work closely with their partner

agencies, in particular non-government

agencies such as Community Patrols NZ

and Neighbourhood Support NZ, both

of whom have recently appointed rural

coordinators to their organisations.

Further prevention advice can be found

at the Police’s Rural Hub online at their

website www.police.govt.nz.

Garden centre go to place

for everything plant-related

The new garden centre at Southern Woods

Nursery, in its handy location on the corner

of Main South Road and Robinsons Road, is

the go to place for everything plant-related

since opening last year.

Despite the surrounding road works this

busy garden centre remains open seven

days a week offering its many customers a

huge selection of every kind of flowering

plant, bush or tree waiting to find a home

at your place.

Most of them are grown on site and

looked after by the team of 40 dedicated

staff, says marketing manager Rico Mannall,

The garden centre opened last year as an

extension of the existing Southern Woods

wholesaling business on the site half way

between Templeton and Rolleston.

The purpose-built retail store has been

specifically designed with the customer

in mind making it easy to find hedging,

natives, deciduous trees, bushes, grasses,

spots of colour or ground cover.

The Southern Woods team is on hand to

help, happy to provide free advice based

on their many years in the business and

property’s location, soil type and aspect the

best.

are looking for a

landscape architect

and designer are

also on-site to make

your selection even

easier.

Southern Woods

can also provide onsite

consultations

and design landscape plans for new sections

including preparing the soil for planting to

get the best results. Another option is to

take in your plans and they can help with

deciding on which plants to use.

Along with the plants, there is also

a selection of premium tools, planting

accessories and disease control products.

“Our tools are top quality and come from

Japan and Germany so they will last a long

time,” says marketing manager Rico.

Enjoy the outdoors all year

round with the Bowranda Roof

With spring now behind us and summer

in full swing, it is the perfect time to step

back and look at how you can get the most

out of your outdoor living environment.

Whether you are hosting family and

friends or just enjoying some "you time",

being able to utilise your outdoor space

with protective shade from the harsh sun

or shelter from inclement weather is the

dream lifestyle.

The Bowranda Roof is the ultimate

solution to your needs, providing comfort

and protection through all four seasons.

As a permanent outdoor space that

provides shelter from the elements, it

offers a desirable compromise for anyone

who wants to be outside while avoiding

exposure to spoiling weather extremes.

Tailored to the needs of New Zealanders,

Bowranda’s ingeniously designed roof

incorporates a specialised membrane

that eliminates 99% of UV rays while still

preserving ambient light.

This provides reliable protection from

harmful rays without compromising the

feel of a natural sunlit area, and unlike

other shade composites, it will not unduly

darken the adjacent interior.

The Bowranda is not just a sunshade;

it offers protection from all the elements,

making it a standout among

other forms of outdoor

shading. With the option to

complement the Bowranda

Roof with sunscreen mesh

or clear PVC roller blinds,

customers are protected

from sun, wind and rain

from any direction.

Constructed from

powder-coated aluminium

and marine-grade stainless

steel fixings, Bowranda has

a structural design that was

carefully developed over a

five-year period, and comes

with a 10-Year Guarantee.

The intentional square

profile of the roof line

and vertical posts ensures

aesthetic conformity with

New Zealand's residential

architecture.

The Bowranda Roof is

centrally manufactured

right here in New

Zealand to the exact

specifications and dimensions required by

customers to meet their outdoor

aspirations.

Help with

your garden

is at hand

Get your weekends back with the help of

local garden maintenance and landscaping

business Revive Landscaping.

Ross and the team are skilled in all aspects

of gardening including pruning, planting,

paving and landscape construction. They

are also experts at keeping topiaries looking

trim and tidy.

As the summer weather cools, it is a great

time for a summer prune of stone fruit

trees and trimming hedges before autumn

arrives.

Year-round maintenance of your garden

is key, Ross says, to ensuring maximum

growth and healthy vegetation. Removing

damaged or diseased plants can also help

rebalance your garden’s aesthetics and keep

an eye out for any weeds, plucking them

out at the base and collecting the roots.

If your lawn is looking tired or weedridden,

now is the time to act. By spraying,

cultivating and reseeding your lawn now,

you will give the new lawn the best chance

to spring back into life. You could also add

pavers for easy access to outdoor areas

or the clothes line once the wet weather

arrives with winter.

Building up your soil is an advantage

no matter where you live but with

Selwyn’s often stony soil, adding compost

is particularly helpful for minimising

water usage. Composting also helps with

suppressing weeds, moisture retention and

the overall health of your plants.

If keeping your garden under control

sounds like too much hard work, give

Ross at Revive Landscaping a call. They

are happy to help out with whatever you

need. Ross has many years’ experience in

landscape gardening and design including

working on sites at the Ellerslie Garden

Show and the television show Mucking In.

For a free garden consultation and

quote, call Ross on 027 222 0388 or you

can check out their website at www.

Hydroseeding cost effective

solution for your new lawn

Hydroseeding is a cost effective and

efficient way of creating a new, great

looking lawn for your home or commercial

property thanks to Canterbury Lawns.

Hydroseeding specialists and owners Zac

and Ashley Swale live locally and can give

the best advice on growing the perfect lawn.

Hydroseeding is a spray-on application

of water, grass seed, wood fibre mulch,

fertiliser and tackifier (a glue which holds

the mix to the surface it is sprayed on). This

method give the best chance for the seeds

to germinate and become your beautiful

green and luscious lawn. Providing it is well

maintained and the conditions are right, it

takes four to six weeks to see the results.

Hydroseeding can be done any time of

the year as the products used are suited to

the season. Autumn and spring are typically

the best times for growing a new lawn but

in summer your lawn will germinate much

faster if you can get plenty of water.

Zac has always enjoyed working

outdoors and has previously worked in

both landscaping and road construction

where his expertise ensures that the ground

will be prepared correctly contributing to a

successfully grown lawn.

Watering is key and Zac recommends

having an automated irrigation system

installed to make the job easier, more

convenient and more efficient in terms of

water use and can advise regarding the best

type of sprinklers for your needs.

Canterbury Lawns also installs roll-out

instant lawns using top quality products

which are locally sourced.

As part of their service clients are given

an advice care sheet after the job has been

completed so they can confidently caring

for their new lawn.

Zac and the team are also specialists

in erosion and dust control for both

commercial and residential areas. Their

hydroseeder can hold large quantities at

a time making the job more efficient and

they can source top quality products to suit

each job.

Landscaping is another part of the

Canterbury Lawns service whether you

need garden preparation, site clearing, a

new fence, paving or decking. They not

only work close to home on residential

properties but also specialise in commercial

and larger-scale work, bringing to any job a

high level of both expertise and enthusiasm.

Bring bees back to

Attracting bees to our gardens has never been more

important. We need to help make the world a better place

for these amazing little creatures’ survival.

Bees not only give us honey, they also

pollinate our plants and flowers – and they

help us grow food for our tables.

A world without bees would mean the

loss of food crops that we have come to

rely on – many of the fruit and vegetable

crops that are pollinated by bees would

simply disappear. People who depend on

the pollination of their crops for human

and animal food – farmers and orchardists

– would soon lose their livelihoods and the

effect would chain -react right through to

the supermarkets and consumers.

So how can you help?

You can attract bees to your garden by

planting a variety of flowering plants and

fruit trees. Bees love blue, purple and

yellow flowers and plants.

Don’t forget to create a watering

station for your little visitors.

Take a shallow dish, add some stones

to act as landing pads and then add

water, making sure some of the stones

are above the water line. Your bees will

love you for it!

Try planting a combination of these herbs, perennials & annuals:

- Aster

- Borage

- Calendula

- Catmint

- Fennel

- Geranium

- Hollyhock

- Lavender

- Sweet alyssum

- Sage

- Strawberry

- Sunflower

- Thyme

- Wildflower mix

- Zinnia

Our Services

Make natural pest sprays for your plants

There is a whole range of natural

ingredients you can use safely on your

plants to deter pests without harming

bees. Chances are you will have just what

you need to make a natural insecticide

or weedkiller spray in your pantry, with

ingredients such as vinegar, Epsom

salt, pepper, garlic, onion, eco-friendly

dishwashing liquid, and essential oils.

Try this safe, easy to use, and cost-effective spray:

- 1 small onion

- 1 tablespoon of biodegradable

- 4 cloves garlic

dishwashing liquid

- 2 tsp cayenne pepper

- 1 litre water

Blend onion, garlic, and cayenne in a blender. Add to water and allow the mixture

to soak/steep for an hour, then strain through a fine mesh strainer or muslin cloth.

Add liquid soap to the strained liquid and pour into a clean spray bottle. Refrigerate

for up to a week.

Spray any plants being attacked by bugs, including the underside of the leaf. Use 1-2

times per week, or after a heavy rain.

Remember to spray in the evening when the bees have finished their day’s work.

Teach children to

respect garden bees

Yes, they do sting but instead of

swatting at bees, encourage children

to quietly watch and appreciate the

work bees do in your garden.

Host a hive

If you are not allergic to bee stings and

have a sunny space in your garden, then

hiring or hosting a hive may be your

golden opportunity to help the bees

and get some honey produced in your

backyard.

Many beekeepers now hire out hives

for the garden both rural and urban. The

colony is managed by the beekeeper,

and in return, you’ll get a few kilos of

honey for your toast and help improve

pollination on your property.

Honey for health

Honey is an excellent tonic with many health benefits,

including being high in antioxidants. When combined with

other ingredients honey can be used in many ways to benefit

our health.

Turmeric is one such spice to team up with honey. In India,

turmeric is revered as a sacred root and loved for its health

benefits. Turmeric contains curcumin, a substance known for

its potent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Turmeric Infused Honey

1 tsp ground turmeric

¼ cup honey

1 small clean jar & lid

Spoon the honey into the jar; add the turmeric and stir.

Enjoy it by the spoonful, add a teaspoon of the mixture to

Prebbleton Reserve, but our

teams will also get access to

Christchurch United’s great

facility, coaching expertise,

resources and networks.”

The academy would provide

an additional pathway for the

Prebbleton players who are keen

to get into a high performance

programme, he said.

Christchurch United board

chairman Malcolm Hinman

is looking forward to a strong

collaboration to support football

in Prebbleton and to extend his

club’s footprint across the region.

“We already have a strong

community player base at our

historical home at Spreydon

Domain, and we are keen to

share our football expertise and

philosophy with the players and

coaches in Prebbleton as well,”

said Hinman.

Coaching education would

also be provided for Prebbleton’s

volunteers.

Prebbleton has been fielding

teams in the junior grades for

more than a decade, but has not

been allowed to register teams

in the Mainland Football youth

and senior grades, which forced

the board to look for a partner

club.

The alliance with Christchurch

United will enable Prebbleton

to field youth and senior teams

under the Christchurch United

banner.

However, they will also retain

their own identity.

“Under the agreement, our

players will now be able to

continue to play in older age

groups, but in our own colours

on their own Prebbleton home

ground,” said Gilmore.

Prebbleton’s senior teams

currently play in the Sunday

leagues, but will now have an

option to register for a Saturday

“We had been speaking with

just wanted to absorb our teams.

Ray and Caleb were Baughan to race

• By Allan Batt

WHEN THE cars are pushed

onto Ruapuna Speedway on

Saturday night for the South

Island Sprintcar Championship,

Caleb Baughan will be

continuing a family link that

goes back to 1996 when his

grandfather Bob Baughan was

tearing up the tracks.

“I’m a bit young to remember

grandad racing, but I know that

the sprintcars were struggling for

numbers, so Bob entered a car

with a mate of his, Chris Harley,

doing the driving. It’s hard to

believe that we are racing for

over $100,000 a season around

the island when those guys raced

for about fifty bucks a car,” the

21-year-old Prebbleton resident

said.

He is in his second full season

of racing in the 850 horsepower

V8 powered cars.

“They are just such a beast to

drive and for an adrenalin junkie

it just doesn’t get any better than

these things. It’s hard to describe

what it’s like running wheel

to wheel on a dirt track, with

limited visibility as you go into a

corner at over 140km per hour.

We have a huge amount of trust

in each other.”

Caleb’s participation in Saturday

night’s event has been under

a cloud after an expensive engine

blow up at the recent national

championship, but with help

from family and friends he is

raring to go.

“It’s a cruel sport sometimes,

and hard on time and the bank

balance but we just get stuck in

and do it.”

A couple of hard crashes hasn’t

dented his enthusiasm, as Caleb

said it’s “part of the game.”

Though, he wonders what goes

through his father Ray’s head

when those crashes occur.

“Dad has been racing sprintcars

for a few years now. Obviously

we help each other out a

lot, but I’m sure he wonders what

the hell has happened if I’ve had

a crash and my car’s either upside

down or being towed away.

While we are obviously racing

everyone else hard, there’s that

father son thing going on and we

love having a good run at each

other,” he said.

“Dad is so competitive at everything

he does. I think he hates

the thought that I might start

beating him one day, but I do

know that he’s pretty happy that

I’m a third generation sprintcar

racer.”

With close to 20 cars entered

for Saturday night’s race, Caleb

said he is keen to beat his father

to a South Island title win.

“It’s amazing that dad has

raced for so long, been on the

podium at a national midget

car event but never won a South

Island championship in either

midgets or sprintcars. He’s been

on the podium eight times, and

I know it irritates the hell out of

him.”

Caleb is pleased to be part of

the young racers who are coming

through the ranks and said

the strength of sprintcars has

never been stronger in the South

Island.”

“When you look at it, Jamie

Duff who is the current South Island

champion is just 28. There’s

Connor Rangi from Nelson who

is 18, Jayden Dodge is under 30

as is Stephen Duff. There are a

few others who are light on years

or experience. The old man says

that the old fellas are not quite

ready to chuck it in just yet.”

Saturday’s championship will

be contested over a series of heat

races, with a 25 lap feature.

Bright future for Brandon

• By Jacob Page

LINCOLN HIGH School’s

Brandon Wallace surprised

himself by claiming third

at the South Island BMX

Championships in Dunedin.

The 16-year-old finished on the

podium in the 17 to 24-year-old

category.

“I was super stoked with how

I performed for my first time in

that age class and I’d had limited

training and a few injuries

to deal with as well,” Brandon

said.

The result puts him on the

cusp of qualifications for the

nationals in Auckland in April,

depending on how his next two

races go.

Brandon represented the Kapiti

BMX Club before he moved to

Lincoln five months ago.

He will now race for the

Christchurch City BMX Club,

which is based in Hornby.

“Its a big change from up

north, but we used to drive an

hour and a half up north just to

get to a track for an hour session,

so to live just 10 minutes from a

track now means I can train a lot

more,” he said.

Brandon said the key to a good

race was often determined by the

start.

“To be honest, 95 per cent of

the time, if you’re leading into

the first turn you can usually

maintain that lead to the finish

and avoid any issues,” Brandon

said.

He got hooked on BMX three

years ago, when he rode his

brother’s bike.

SPORTS

”My wheels got off the ground

for half a second and everything

clicked with me after that,” he

said

“I knew I wanted to race and

compete.”

Seven teams still have chance

to make country cricket semis

COUNTRY CRICKET’S bottom three

teams all snared much-needed wins on

Saturday as the race for the semi-finals

heats up.

With two rounds left in the CRV

Ambreed country premier one-day

competition, seven of the eight teams still

have a mathematical chance of making

the top four.

Competition leaders Southbrook tripped

up away against Cheviot, registering just

their second loss of the season. The Brook

were rolled for 136, with Tom Rodden’s 60

the standout display.

A blazing 46 off 19 balls from Jack

Harris helped the Cheviot Magpies coast

to an eight-wicket win, which applied

pressure to Oxford-Rangiora and Kaiapoi

– who both lost over the weekend – for the

fourth finals berth.

Weedons thumped Kaiapoi by 135 runs

after posting a huge 270/7 in 45 overs.

Sam Wilson’s run-a-ball 70 led the way

for Weedons, while Brad Nightingale

(57 off 79) and veteran country stalwart

Paul Rugg (48 off 80) helped post the

mammoth total.

Only Caleb Greaves showed any

resistance for Kaiapoi in the run chase.

He was left stranded on 79, with wickets

tumbling around him. Lachie Stove (2/23)

knocked off the top order before Liam

Mason took a staggering five-wicket bag

in just 15 deliveries.

Oxford-Rangiora also stumbled

on Saturday, losing to cellar-dwellers

Darfield, who chased down 181 with eight

balls and six wickets to spare. Opener

Rhys Mariu made a classy 74 off 108

for Oxford-Rangiora, with brother Josh

Mariu (28 off 44) the only batter to give

him much support. Zak Foulkes took

4/13, while Toby Kars grabbed a threewicket

haul.

Darfield’s reply got off to a solid start

before two quick wickets from George

Mauger gave the combined side hope.

That was soon extinguished by Jesse

Frew, who put on a batting masterclass

with an unbeaten 93 off 110, guiding

Darfield to a six-wicket win.

At Leeston Park, visitors Sefton won

the toss and elected to bowl in a second

v third match-up. Leeston-Southbridge

started cautiously, seeing off a testing new

ball spell from Canterbury pace-man

Fraser Sheat.

It was then Sefton’s change bowlers who

did the damage, uprooting Canterbury

‘A’ wicketkeeper-batsman Joel Harden

(26), Rupert Young, brother of Central

Districts star Will Young, (7), and Dutch

international Tim Gruijters (6), leaving

Leeston-Southbridge 64/3 after 18 overs.

When Harry Chamberlain got his eye in,

he went on to dominate the second half

of the innings. Chamberlain smashed

seven fours and three sixes before he was

cruelly dismissed for 99. Sefton stalwart

Barry Cross was the pick of the bowlers,

taking 4/33 off nine overs, as Leeston-

Southbridge posted a competitive total of

200. The Seals were eventually dismissed

for a paltry 46, with none of their batters

reaching double digits.

Leeston-Southbridge’s Tim Field ended

with 5/8 off eight overs, ably supported by

Harden who put his wicketkeeping gloves

aside for the afternoon and took four

wickets with his right-arm seamers.

Hyundai Santa Fe shows its versatility

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

IT WAS A case of mission

accomplished, I was asked by my

daughter if I would help her shift

flats.

Along with a stack of shoes

that I didn’t think was possible

for a 24-year-old to accumulate,

there was the usual amount of

furniture – duchess, cabinets and

bed. I had the perfect vehicle to

carry out the process – a Hyundai

Santa Fe – a large seven-seat

sport utility vehicle, of course,

by lowering the rear rows of

seats you get a very healthy

wagon section which swallowed

everything we could load into it,

mattress aside.

That’s one of the reasons why

SUVs have become so popular,

they are adaptable and versatile

and, in the Santa Fe’s case, it is

also a plush luxury car which

impresses with its refinement.

As history has served to prove,

I missed a drive in the previous

generation model, circumstances

constantly conspiring against

me getting into the vehicle. That

aside, the latest generation model

is simply stunning, it is grand in

its design and manufacture.

The new Santa Fe is all-new, it

lands here in four variants, petrol

and diesel, all with four-wheeldrive

starting from $59,990.

Bearing in mind the old V6

engine is gone, today’s petrolpowered

Santa Fe is a 2.4-litre

four-cylinder unit.

This evaluation focuses on

the range-topping Limited with

Hyundai’s magnificent 2.2-litre

diesel engine. The four-cylinder

turbocharged unit is rated at

147kW (3800rpm) with 440Nm

of torque available from 1570rpm

to 2750rpm.

Not only are these outputs

impressive in terms of flexibility

and outright grunt, it is one of

the smoothest engines you are

ever likely to find in a vehicle of

this type.

The engine is hooked to

a recently-developed eightspeed

automatic transmission,

something that is shared with

Hyundai’s partnership with Kia.

Interaction between the engine

and gearbox is smooth and

seamless, and the gear ratios

are structured so that they work

efficiently with the engine’s power

and torque bands, especially so

the mid-range rev spread.

In this form, the Santa Fe is

relatively quick for a vehicle

which weighs in at almost

two-tonne. According to my

stopwatch it will make 100km/h

from a standstill in 9.4sec and

80km/h to 120km/h in 6.2sec.

As you would expect in newage

SUV, the Santa Fe is fitted

with the latest technologies

for safety, along with a full raft

of features for comfort and

convenience.

At $82,990, it really needs to be

well-specced, it is competing with

the major European brands, and

if you throw in a newcomer to

the large SUV market – Holden’s

Acadia – then Hyundai know

it has to provide a good level of

fitment.

Major items of specification

HYUNDAI SANTA FE: Sophisticated sport utility vehicle.

include full leather trim with

electrically adjustable seats up

front (also heated). There is

head-up display, paddle shift gear

selectors and the choice of several

drive modes which the driver

can use to suit his or her driving

preference. These are on top of

items that you would normally

expect to find in a top-grade

model.

HIGH-SPEC: The Santa Fe has a multitude of features, including

leather trim..

Hyundai has upped the

ante in terms of efficiency in

this age where fuel prices play

such a big part in the buying

choice.

The Santa Fe returned some

interesting fuel usage information

during my time with the test car.

At 100km/h in top gear the big

diesel sips fuel instantaneously at

around seven-litres per 100km

(41mpg), turning over at just

1500rpm.

A test average of 9l/100km

(31mpg) is respectable for vehicle

weight, and compares well to

Hyundai’s combined cycle claim

of 7.5l/100km (37mpg).

Not only is the diesel Santa

Fe an economical choice, it will

offer the versatility you would

expect from a family wagon. It

cruises the highway with dignity,

yet it also tackles the hard yards

when presented with an off-theseal

excursion, although at just

185mm, the driver does need

to keep in mind that ground

clearance isn’t huge.

The suspension is fully

independent all-round – struts

up front and multiple links on the

rear – the spring and dampers are

ride is far from abrasive.

It was good to be back

behind the wheel of a Santa

Fe. I’ve driven a lot of Hyundai

product in recent months

and it all stands up to be

counted in terms of quality and

sophistication.

The new Santa Fe

lands at a time when

sales in the large SUV sector

are still rising. It has a lot of

competition but with such a

broad range there is a Santa Fe

for all budgets.

WORKSAFE NEW Zealand

has b en a proached in a bid to

fina ly repair the potholes in New

Brighton’s Hawke St car park.

Coastal-Burw od Ward city

counci lor David East wants

WorkSafe to pre sure the car

park’s private owners into

repairing the potholes which are

a “trip and vehicle” hazard.

WorkSafe chief inspector

a se sment southern Da ren

Handforth said it may be able to

take action under the Health and

Safety at Work Act 2015, “as a

person conducting a busine s or

undertaking.”

Mr Handforth said WorkSafe

is aware of the concerns raised by

Cr East abou the car park.

“WorkSafe has completed

an a se sment visi to the site

and is engaging with the owner

to advise them that it is their

responsibility to manage their

risks a propriately.”

Different parts of the car park

are owned by various people

and the Coastal-Burw od

Community Board recently

wrote to them about its concerns

around health and safety.

Cr East said the bi gest i sue

in the past has b en ge ting in

touch with the landlords and

owners and ge ting them to

agr e to anything. “The board

a preciates that multi-ownership

of the parking space may present

a difficulty in co-ordinating

repair/resurfacing but felt obliged

to pa s these concerns onto you,”

said the le ter.

One reply has b en received so

far from an owner who is wi ling

to discu s the i sue. However, a l

the owners would have to agr e

to undertake work.

Cr East said there had b en

a “number of incidences” in

the car park of people injuring

themselves which had gone

unreported.

“I’ve always though that it

has b en quite amazing that we

haven’t had any serious a cidents

or senior citizens perhaps

tri ping in those potholes and

doing themselve some damage.”

He is confiden the new

a proach wi l bring results.

“I think the WorkSafe

involvement may prove to be the

lever that we are l oking for.”

THE PAPANUI-I nes

Community Board has taken the

rare step of starting a petition

to figh the city council over

funding.

Signatures are being co lected

in a bid to get funding for a community

facility in Shirley.

It comes after the city council

removed funding for the centre

pla ned for Shirley Rd, near the

intersection with Hi ls Rd. This

was the site of the former community

centre, which was badly

damaged in the February 2,

20 1, earthquake.

The removal o funding

prompted community board

chairwoman Ali Jones to threaten

to stand down, citing it as her “die

in the ditch” project.

Ms Jone said the board’s role

is to represen the community,

and by gathering signatures from

residents, it was fulfi ling that

role.

“One of the roles of a community

board is to represent and act

as advocate for the interests of its

community and this is what we

are doing. The LTP and a nual

plans are a l about lo bying the

council.”

Cave Rock

Apartments’

owners

expect EQC

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments ar expecting the

Earthquake Commi sion to sign-off

on a se tlement agr emen this w ek.

Body corporate chairman Mike

White said the group had gone

into mediation with IAG and EQC

on February 20, and signed off

on a deal with IAG on February

2 – coincidenta ly seven years

to the day after the February 2,

20 1, earthquake. However, they

are waiting for EQC to sign the

agr ement.

“Given that EQC actua ly drafted

the agr ement, there’ l be no

problem with them doing that.”

The apartment suffered damage

in the February and June, 20 1,

earthquakes and were demolished in

late 2012. In 2016, IAG’s offer of the

difference betw en indemnity value,

$10 mi lion, and the sum insured,

$16 mi lion, was rejected by the body

corporate.

The mediation agr ement

prevented Mr White from disclosing

the se tlement amount, but he said it

involved the two parties paying “a bit

more money than they’d wanted to

earlier.”

A WOOLSTON butcher proved

to be a cut above the rest in an

international competition.

New World Fe ry Rd butcher

Jeremy Garth and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, recently

came second a the World

Butchers’ Cha lenge in Northern

Ireland.

It was the firs time Mr Garth

had competed in the cha lenge

and he was “rea ly proud” of

how the team performed.

“We produced some top quality

products and came away

with a g od result so we’re very

ha py,” he said.

The preparation for this year’s

World Butchers’ Cha lenge was

intense as the team members

met in Auckland every two

months for lengthy w ekend

practices.

Mr Garth, who has b en a

butcher for 14 years, said the

competition brought back his

pa sion for the job.

“Doing a l thi stuff and

m eting new people, s eing new

ideas, it just brings that flair

back for you,” he said.

Mr Garth hopes to own a

butcher shop of his own someday

but says for now he wi l focus

on ge ting mor experience

and on the 2020 cha lenge.

“In two years’ time, we’ l be

going back to try and win the

title,” he said.

A CRACKDOWN on mobile

traders acro s the districts could

be l oming.

However, the public has li tle

interest in having input into the

i sue.

Only eight submi sions were

received for a potential bylaw

aimed at regulating commercial

activities in public places.

The district council wi l be

holding a hearing for the Public

Places Bylaw and Policy on Commercial

Activities and Events in

Public Places.

A hearing i scheduled to be

held on Thursday.

The bylaw comes as an increasing

number of mobile traders

are s eking to operate in Selwyn,

especia ly during the summer

months.

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

on private or public land.

A report said there are two

str et operators in Darfield, a

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

Pupils learn about role of war horses

GR ENDALE SCHOOL pupils

have taken a step back in time,

s eing first hand what men and

horses l oked like during war.

The New Zealand Mounted

Rifles Charitable Trust president

Mark A pleton and member

Mike Donaldson t ok their

horses to the sch ol on Monday,

in a bid to educate pupils on the

sacrifice their ancestors made in

World War 1 and World War 2.

Mr A pleton and Mr Donaldson

a rived a the sch ol dre sed

in World War 1 uniforms while

their horses Tommy and Kruze

wore 1 0-year-old sa dles donated

to the trust.

The presentation is a prelude

to the Gr endale Recreation Reserve

Management Commi t e’s

upcoming Anzac Day service.

As a tribute to those who

served, members of the trust wi l

ride horseback to the service.

Mr A pleton said it was

important children were

educated on what soldiers

wen through during World

War 1 and World War 2.

But he said the presentation

didn’t go into t o much detail

and was more of a “show and

te l” to make them aware of what

the soldiers l oked like.

Children were shown the type

of kits horses were required to

wear in the war.

AN U PER Ri carton butcher

has proven himself to be a cut

above his Au sie rivals at an

international competition.

Elite Meats owner Corey

Winder was named in the a l

star team a the World Butchers’

Cha lenge in Northern Ireland.

Mr Winder and his team, the

Pure South Sharp Blacks, which

includes W olston butcher

Jeremy Garth, finished second

in the competition.

He said the cha lenge started

as a “transtasman test match”

seven years ago.

The preparation for this

year’s World Butchers’ Challenge

was intense as the team

members met in Auckland

every two months for lengthy

w ekend practices. Mr Winder

said coming second against 1

other countries was a “fantastic”

result.

“To get second behind Ireland

was a huge achievement and to

be ahead of Australia is an

even bi ger thing for us,” he

said.

But Mr Winder admires the

Australian team.

“Those guys over there

[Australia] are on top of their

game, they do a g od job,” he

said.

“And it just showcases that

New Zealand has got some

of the best butchers in the

world,” he said.

Mr Winder has b en a butcher

since the age of 19.

THE HALSWE L-Hornby-

has b en given the gr en ligh to

o pose the pla ned qua ry near

Templeton.

Mayor Lia ne Dalziel told the

board on Thursday it had the okay

from the city council to make a

submi sion if Fulton Hogan a plies

for a resource consen to create a

Board chairman Mike Mora

told Western News the submi sion

would likely o pose Fulton Hogan’s

plan.

“You can just about guarant e

it . because we [the community

board] don’t believe qua ries

should be so close to residential

areas,” he said.

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

the city council would endorse the

board’ submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as we l ove recent years over

the crysta line silica risk,” he said.

Mr Mora said the community

board wi l be “representing and

advocating” for the Templeton

community.

Tips for first home buyers

Struggling to get on the property ladder

and feeling fed up? You’re not alone. Real

Estate Authority (REA) research has found

that more than half of all first home buyers

– even the ones who successfully buy a

property – find the process stressful and

overwhelming.

“We know it’s hard for people when they’re

trying to buy their first home – it’s a complex

legal process and a huge financial deal,”

says REA chief executive Kevin Lampen-

Smith. “We want to empower them to feel

more confident and in control when they’re

making such a big decision.”

1. SORT OUT YOUR FINANCES

You’ll already know that saving is a big

part of getting ready to buy, but do you

know what else you need to do?

Getting financial advice from a qualified

advisor could be a useful step in your

planning. Owning a property means you’re

responsible for all the maintenance and

repairs – and for paying rates and insurance.

Owning an apartment may also mean you

need to pay body corporate fees. These costs

can be a bit of a shock to the system if you’ve

rented for a long time.

“It’s also a good idea to get conditional

pre-approved finance arranged so you can

move quickly when you spot a property you

really like,” Lampen-Smith says. “Having

conditional pre-approval lets you know the

price range you can buy in and it shows

agents and sellers that you’re a serious buyer.

It’s also crucial if you’re planning to bid on a

property at auction.”

Don’t forget to explore ways that

you might be able to get help from the

Government. There are various forms of

assistance available if you’re a KiwiSaver

member, buying in certain areas, want

to buy a former Housing New Zealand

property or are Māori and want to live on

your ancestral land.

2. NEEDS VS WANTS

Many first home buyers discover a big gap

between what they’d like to buy and what

they can afford when they first start looking.

“Sit down and write a tight list of what

your absolute must-haves are, then work

out what you’re willing to compromise on,”

Lampen-Smith says.

If you’re thinking about pets and children

arriving in the short-to-medium term, think

about how these will change your needs.

Will you need to be near to childcare or

schools? Will you need a fenced property?

“If you’re the sort of person who likes a

good list, we’ve got a useful ‘researching the

property’ checklist on settled.govt.nz that

will help you keep track of all the questions

to ask about a property. This is especially

useful if you’re looking at more than one

property at a time.”

3. DO YOUR HOMEWORK

Don’t let your desperation to find

somewhere blind you to a property’s faults.

“Do as much research as you can about a

property,” Lampen-Smith says. “That means

getting a lawyer on board to make sure all

the paperwork is in order and to help you

understand if there are any issues. We also

recommend getting a qualified building

inspector who has professional indemnity

insurance to prepare a comprehensive

report on the property.”

If you’re worried about paying for this

kind of report before you make an offer (due

to a lack of time or funds), you can make

them a condition of your offer. Remember

that paying for good advice is an investment

that will buy you more peace of mind than a

quick once-over by a mate.

4. RECOGNISE YOUR LIMITS

Buying a ‘doer-upper’ is a Kiwi tradition,

especially for first-home buyers, but we’re

not all blessed with the right skills. Factor

this in before you make an offer on a

‘renovator’s dream’.

“Be honest with yourselves about how

much DIY you can really do, especially if

you’ve got pets and kids,” Lampen-Smith

says.

“Getting professionals in to help will cost

more, but it will also make the process faster.

It may also be better in the long term when it

comes to selling the property if any work has

been done properly with the right consents.”

information on buying or selling, check

[Edition datE]

What you need to know about open

homes when you’re selling a property

There is nowhere more sacred than your

home. Welcoming visitors is one thing,

opening it up to complete strangers is

another situation entirely.

When you’re selling a property you get

to decide how the open home process is

run. If you’re working with a real estate

agent, this is will be part of the marketing

plan that you agree upon with them before

you sign the agency agreement. The real

estate agent will advise you on the timing

and frequency of open homes, or any

other viewings. If there is anything you

are uncertain about, talk to the agent and

make your feelings clear. There’s no law

that you have to have open homes – you

may decide that you’d rather have viewings

by appointment only.

“Bear in mind though that in order to

sell your home, people will have to see it,”

says Kevin Lampen-Smith, chief executive

of the Real Estate Authority (REA). “You

may have to be flexible on when viewings

are held, even if they are not particularly

convenient.”

If you are selling privately, you have full

responsibility for running any viewings.

This can be time-consuming and has the

potential to be distressing if you’re not

braced to hear other people’s criticisms of

your property. Some private sellers get a

friend to help out for this reason.

When it comes to the marketing and

selling process of your home it’s a good

idea to look at things from the perspective

of the real estate agent and any prospective

purchaser, Lampen-Smith says.

“Open homes often attract people who

are just browsing to see what’s around, or

neighbours who have always wanted to

see what ‘that house at number 10’ is like.

The agent will report back to you after the

open home to let you know the level of

interest – if they have kept an electronic

or paper record of visitors it will give you

an indication of how many visitors were

sticky beaks from down the street.”

In an ideal world, people will treat your

home with respect when viewing it, he

says.

“If you suspect they will need

reminding, request that the agent asks

visitors to remove any wet weather gear or

shoes before entering. Most people go on a

major cleaning, tidying and de-cluttering

mission before putting a property on the

market, which will make it much easier

to prepare it for an open home. It’s a

good idea to clear away any valuables or

personal items (if time is short, dump

them all in a washing basket that you can

pick up and take with you) and use your

own common sense about what you want

strangers to see.”

Don’t shove things into cupboards or

wardrobes – prospective buyers will be

keen to gauge storage capacity. Remember

that families with small children could be

going through your property and delicate

ornaments or family heirlooms might be

better out of harm’s way.

Selling a property can be a stressful time,

but you’ll make it much easier on yourself

if you work out a plan of attack, including

getting the advice of professionals along

the way, Lampen-Smith says.

“Present your home well and it’s more

likely to attract another set of owners.”

selling property, check out settled.govt.nz.

Anyone intending to build a new home

should have the builder’s contract

checked out by an experienced lawyer.

A payment schedule can also

minimise financial risks. Issues that

you may have to deal with include:

the deposit, guarantees and warranties

If you want to compare building

companies, it’s important to get down

to finer details such as how many

power points there are per room, the

type of windows you are having or

which paint finishes are included.

Questions to ask

builders include:

• Do you have a completion guarantee

and how does it work?

• Is there a loss of deposit

guarantee?

• Is the company a

Registered Master Builder

and does it use thirdparty

written guarantees?

• What is the schedule for

payments?

• How are the deposit and

progress payments

administered?

• Are they held in a solicitor’s trust

fund?

• Will the master franchisor complete

the build if the franchisee goes out

of business

• What are the exact specs?

• Are the prices fixed?

• What is excluded from the build?

• Are there any restrictions on

driveways or any other connections?

• Can you speak with clients who

have just completed a build?

Do your homework before you decide

on a building company and you will

have a less stressful time once the

building process starts.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

A building inspection is a safeguard

Before purchasing an existing home, consider engaging

the services of a firm that specialises in carrying out

building inspections.

A building inspection does not guarantee the

condition of a house however, the inspector’s knowledge

of construction and what is code compliant can help

towards protecting your investment. It is for this reason

most financial institutions request a building inspection

report before agreeing to mortgage a property.

Legal issues, such as the LIM and whether a house has

Council code of compliance, will not be addressed as

part of a building inspection and you and your solicitor

should investigate these.

Pre-purchase building inspections generally come with

a comprehensive report on what the inspector viewed

and the condition of the home.

The inspector will check the foundations outside.

Where a single level dwelling with a wooden floor the

confined space inside will likely mean a torch is simply

shone through the manhole for checking any obvious

signs of deterioration like a loose pile.

Health and safety legislation will also prevent the

inspector from carrying out more than a look in the roof

cavity, from a ladder or safe attic access space. This is

still likely to provide an indication of the condition of

the trusses along with the level of ceiling insulation. The

roof and guttering will be viewed from a ladder placed

at various points around the house. If you have serious

concerns about the condition of the roof, you may wish

to engage the services of a qualified roofer who can

provide a more specialised report.

The exterior walls of the home where visible, will be

looked over for cracks and gaps between the cladding and

flashing, and the condition of the joinery examined.

Inside, the general condition will be assessed, taking

into account normal wear and tear for the age of the

home. Floor levels in the various rooms will be measured

and noted within the report as will indicative moisture

readings.

Some aspects of the inspection will be more involved

than others. For example, the hot water system,

plumbing, electrical or gas may only receive cursory

looks as the inspector is unlikely to be qualified in these

areas.

Features such as the foundation footings, ground

conditions and stability, waterproofing membranes,

drainage including storm water and

sewers, in-ground features like a

swimming pool or spa, septic tanks,

wells, fireplaces and chimneys,

intercom systems and appliances,

are generally outside the scope of a

building inspection.

The report may recommend

remedial work and how the home

could be improved.

If considering buying a preearthquake

home, ensure it has been

signed off in relation to any remedial

work carried out through EQC or

an insurance company. Check also,

that the property is fully insurable

and there are no issues in relation to

• The cladding will

be examined.

• The home’s

condition will be

assessed.

• A building

inspection report

may recommend

remedial work.

• The roof will be

checked from a

ladder.

securing future insurance. You may not be concerned

if purchasing an ‘as is, where is’ home though contents

insurance may still be required.

The pros and cons of building sites

When selecting a building site weigh up

your lifestyle, family needs and aspirations

before signing up for any section.

Those purchasing early on in the

development of a subdivision will have

more choice of section size and orientation

to the street and sun. As the individual

sites are sold, there may be less availability

though this need not be a deterrent. With

good design any building site can be made

to work.

Selwyn has experienced considerable

growth in recent years. Sub-divisions

have opened up and been built on, with

new developments regularly coming on

stream. Within these, section sizes vary

from around 400 square metres upwards

to 5,000 square metres. Lifestyle blocks are

also scattered around the district.

The size of the house and amount of

yard desired will influence the feasibility

of some building sites as will sun and wind

direction, bearing in mind that a house

can be designed to capture the sun’s free

heat and allow for pleasant outdoor areas

to enjoy.

If the street side of the building site is

north/north west, incorporating fenced or

planted courtyards can offer private places

to entertain and bask in the sun.

Those wanting street presence or keen

on gardening may prefer a corner section

and while it might seem they offer less

privacy, with strategic placement of fences

quite the opposite can be the case.

Weigh up your family’s needs in terms

of the outdoor areas too. Do you want play

areas for your children? Do you have a

need for off-street parking for a number of

vehicles and space for a boat, caravan or

motorhome, which may need to be parked

out of site of the street? How much lawn or

garden do you want?

Start by identifying housing

developments that you like and could see

your family living in. Think also about the

convenience of shops and other amenities,

something that may or may not be a

concern.

Single out possible sections then talk

with a designer or builder. Most building

companies have a good selection of

standard plans as a starting point and they

will usually work with a client to modify

a plan or draw up one that will work

on a particular building site, whilst also

containing the components the client is

seeking within their new home.

Before signing up for any building

site, check the Council land zoning and

recession plane requirements as well as

covenants for the sub-division. These will

show not only how far from a boundary

the house can be sited but also roof

height, permissible building materials,

and acceptable types of fencing, as well as

what can be on view from the street like

a clothes line, caravan or motorhome.

Conducting your research first will save

any frustration or hassles later.

All sections are

workable, it is simply

a matter of choosing

one that matches

your specific needs.
