Further

concerns

over

freedom

campers’

rubbish

• By Matt Slaughter

FEWER PEOPLE have

complained about freedom

campers along Marine Pde

over the summer – but Kim

Money says they are still causing

problems.

The Coastal-Burwood Community

Board chairwoman presented

her concerns at a city council

meeting about freedom campers

leaving rubbish behind and defecating

in the sand dunes.

A city council spokesperson

said the council has received 20

fewer complaints about freedom

campers around Thomson Park

and North Beach compared to last

summer. The spokesperson said

15 fines had been handed out to

freedom campers parked along

Marine Pde this summer, but

could not say if this was more or

less than last summer.

However, Ms Money said there

continued to be a number of

freedom campers without selfcontained

vehicles parking in the

North Beach and Thomson Park

car parks. •Turn to page 7

FREEDOM CAMPERS seem to be better

behaved cleanliness wise at the moment –

if the number of complaints being received

about them is a yardstick.

On page 1 today we revisit the annual

saga of freedom campers parking up along

Marine Pde.

The city council has received fewer complaints from the

public this summer than they did during 2017-2018.

But Coastal-Burwood Community Board chairwoman Kim

Money says they are still making a mess and she has put her

concerns to the city council.

One of her big concerns is the age old problem of, not to put

a too finer point on it, freedom campers taking a dump in the

sandhills.

And that’s why Joe Public will always give freedom campers

the bum’s rush.

Further traffic concerns raised

• By Matt Slaughter

SPEED LIMIT changes on roads

around the new Shirley Boys’

and Avonside Girls’ High School

site in QE II Park will not go far

enough to keep students safe,

some say.

The Coastal-

Burwood Community

Board

approved plans to

reduce the speed

limit to 40km/h

on Travis Rd and

Evan Smith

Bower Ave and

50km/h Frosts

Rd at a meeting

last Monday.

However, Avon-Otakaro

Network’s spokesman Evan

Smith and Avonside Girls’ High

School’s board of trustees chairwoman

Monica Davis said the

New Zealand Transport Agency

should turn its attention to the

two roundabouts between Anzac

Drive New Brighton Rd and

Travis Rd.

Mr Smith said these roundabouts

were very busy and the

70km/h speed limit through

them would make crossing the

road dangerous for students.

Both Mr Smith and Ms Davis

said they wanted the speed limit

reduced to 50km/h through the

roundabouts.

CONSTRUCTION: Concern has been raised that students at the new Shirley Boys’ and Avonside

Girls’ High School will be at risk of traffic.

“Even high school kids on

bikes and walking going across

those roundabouts is just an

accident waiting to happen, said

Smith.”

Ms Davis said potentially hundreds

of students a day would be

crossing the roundabouts every

day to get to school.

“We expect to have about 2500

people on site so if it’s 25 per cent

of that who cross the road . . . so

we’re really concerned about the

safety of road users during those

peak times when people are going

to and leaving the school.”

Both Mr Smith and Ms Davis

said NZTA should replace the

roundabouts with traffic lights as

well as reducing the speed limit

However, NZTA senior traffic

and safety engineer David

Scarlet said traffic lights tended

to be much more dangerous than

intersections.

Crashes at roundabouts tend

to be of much lower severity than

traffic signal crashes, where a

driver crossing on the red light

can cause a fatality.

Mr Scarlet said NZTA was developing

different infrastructure

to keep pedestrians using the

roundabouts safe.

“NZTA has been working

with the Ministry of Education

and city council to address the

transport needs of the two new

schools.”

“Is currently designing a

pedestrian and cycle facility to be

used on the Frosts Road leg/side

of the roundabout.”

But, Mr Smith said this was

not good enough.

“Motorists often speed through

those roundabouts.”

“I think, at the end of the day,

traffic lights on those corners are

likely to be the safest option for

the kids crossing there.”

End of an era for Avonside old girl

• By Matt Slaughter

PATRICIA TURNER made

some of the best memories of her

life during her time at Avonside

Girls’ High School.

But now the 77-year-old

Linwood resident is getting ready

to say goodbye to her former

school when it shifts from its

Avonside Drive site to a new

shared campus with Shirley

Boys’ High School at QE II Park

next term.

It has been 100 years since

Avonside Girls’ first opened.

Mrs Turner is the secretary

of the old girls’ association and

attended the school from 1955-

1958.

Mrs Turner’s sister Ruth

Aitken (then Turner) also

attended Avonside Girls’, starting

two years later.

Their mother Hilda Batson

was in the first class of students

who started at the school when it

opened in 1919.

Mrs Turner remembered

cycling to school every day from

her house in St Martins

and the “very tall trees that

turned beautiful colours in the

autumn.”

She also made friends that

have lasted a lifetime.

“It seemed to be a happy time

for all of us at that stage . . . A lot

of the past pupils of Avonside,

we meet for lunch every three

months and we’ve kept in touch

and we’re very loyal to the

school.”

She said she had a great

education, a love for English

and history and a strict but fair

headmistress.

Mrs Turner went on to have a

successful career as a shorthand

typing teacher and said her time

at Avonside Girls’ set her up

“extremely well for the market

that existed then.”

When the school was badly

damaged in the February 22,

2011, earthquake, Mrs Turner

said: “It really was heartbreaking

because the writing was more

or less on the wall that they

wouldn’t rebuild on the site.”

When the gates of Avonside’s

old site close for the last time,

it would signal the end of a

significant chapter in the lives of

its former students, she said.

“In normal circumstances, I

suppose the school could have

continued for another hundred

years, so it does mark the end

of an era and it means that

everything that we remembered

about school will be gone,” Mrs

Turner said.

“They were some of the

happiest days of my life and I feel

it’s now like the closing of a book

on that period.”

An event will be held at the

Avonside Girls’ old site on

Saturday from 1.30pm until 5pm

for past and present students

to reconnect, say farewell and

celebrate the school’s 100 year

anniversary.

Mrs Turner said the event

would have a post-World War

1 theme to recognise the huge

impact that the war had on its

first students.

She said her mother used

to say Avonside Girls’ was an

escape for many of the

school’s first students who

had fathers and brothers who

returned home from the war

traumatised.

“My mother always thought it

must have been a bit of a refuge

for these girls, where they could

just let themselves be teenagers

and they didn’t have to worry

about making a sudden noise or

waking up and hearing their big

brothers screaming,” Mrs Turner

said.

The farewell would include

a performance from a band

playing wartime songs and they

would be serving Anzac biscuits

to pay tribute.

Mrs Turner said hundreds of

former students of all ages would

attend the event, including its

oldest former student, 101-yearold

Beryl Newman.

Current students of Avonside

Girls’ High School will have

their last day at the old site in

mid-April before moving to the

new QE II campus at the start of

term 2.

A WAINONI woman had a lucky

escape after a motorist allegedly

under the influence of drugs

crashed into her neighbour’s

home.

Wendy Kemp was sitting in the

lounge of her Pannell Ave home

getting ready to go to work when

she heard an “almighty crash.”

A 31-year-old man, who has

been charged with dangerous

driving and driving under the

influence of drugs, drove up her

neighbour’s driveway, hitting

their house and crashing into the

fence and trees.

The car overturned in the crash

and became wedged upside down,

between the neighbour’s house

and the adjoining fence.

“If the trees hadn’t of been there,

he would have driven straight into

our lounge, hitting me!”

“It could have killed me,” she

said.

Vandals hit controversial apartment complex

• By Julia Evans

THE SITE on which a

is being built has been the target

of vandalism.

The Williams

development

site on Perth

St, Richmond,

was flooded

overnight last

week after

someone cut the

site’s water toby

and turned it

back on.

The 2m hole, dug out for the

complex’s foundations, was

entirely filled with water.

“Like a big swimming pool,”

managing director Blair Chappell

said.

“It spewed tens of thousands of

litres of water onto the ground.”

Foundation work on the site

was put on hold as contractors

A police spokeswoman

would not say what drug the

man was allegedly under the

influence of, as the matter is now

before the courts.

Mrs Kemp’s husband, Peter,

helped with others to get the man,

who was unharmed, out of the

vehicle.

The couple have been living

on the street for eight years and

never had any problems, said Mrs

Kemp.

Her neighbours were on holiday

at the time of the crash.

The crash caused damage to the

side of their home, as well as the

adjoining fence with Mr and Mrs

Kemp’s property.

Mrs Kemp said both couples

“It didn’t really have a true cost

other than half a day of using a

pump at about $500 and a few

contractors sitting around for

something to do on sites like

this,” Mr Chappell said.

The complex faces opposition

from Richmond residents,

who are concerned about

the growing number of high density

developments in the

area and their impact on the suburb.

However, Mr Chappell said the

site was likely the target of vandals.

“I’d say it’s opportunist vandals

Mr Chappell said.

Trust to move

from church site

• By Matt Slaughter

THE WAINONI Avonside

Community Services Trust

will shift from its site at the

earthquake-damaged Wainoni

The decision was made because

of concerns about the effect that

working out

spaces was having

trust’s employees.

The trust will

The Wainoni Methodist

Church had not been used for

earthquake, but the trust had

continued to use it for a range of

social and recreational activities

for the elderly.

of the move.

NATHAN INGRAM doesn’t

fancy himself as much of a

basketball player, but he does

know a thing or two about art.

The North New Brighton

resident has brought together the

two unlikely subjects in a piece

of art he has designed and helped

to install on the entire surface of

the basketball court south of the

New Brighton Pier.

Ingram was the second

winner of the SCAPE Public

Art Trust’s Re: Activate New

Brighton competition last year.

His court design named Forces

sits directly below the mural

completed by fellow winner Josh

O’Rourke.

Ingram said his piece

was made up of geometric

shapes, bold colours, lines and

stripes, which represented

traditional Maori narratives

around “the forces of nature

where the sea meets the land

and the sky.”

He said these narratives

were incredibly relevant to

new Brighton residents, who

often felt the full effect of these

forces.

Ingram worked alongside

Park Life, a company which

installs acrylic sports surfaces to

complete the project.

He did the outlines of the

shapes on the surface himself

and told Park Life workers where

to place colours as he went.

Finally seeing the work come

to life after months of drafting

it on paper had made his hard

work all worth it, Ingram said.

The artwork was his gift to the

area where he had lived for six

years and he was most excited

about seeing his young son enjoy

it for years to come.

“What I’m looking forward to

is my young son growing up and

him saying my dad did that to

his friends and watching him go

“I’m not much of a basketball

player,” Ingram said, but he

would be down at the court

seeing if his jump shot skills

matched up to his design skills in

the near future.

The court will be open to the

public from tomorrow.

Boxing gym’s

future a lot

more certain

• By Matt Slaughter

AN ARANUI boxing gym has

bought the lease for its building

for just $1 a year.

The city council has agreed

to sell the lease of the damaged

Wainoni Park Youth Activity

Centre (known

as The Bunker)

to A-Town Boxing

Gym, on the

condition that

A-Town funds its

repairs itself.

A-Town have

Jamie

space since 2005,

but it was badly

damaged by an arson attack in

2014.

A-Town boxing gym’s manager

Jamie Roberts said over

$100,000 of damage still had to

be repaired, but the city council

had previously said it could not

justify paying for these repairs.

Mr Roberts said the handing

over of the lease was the best

option for all involved because

A-Town could finally get on with

seeking out funding options for

the repairs after years of not having

any power to do this.

“It gives us stability, we’ve

been in the community almost

20 years and now we’ll be there

for another three 11-year leases.

We’re pretty confident that

we’re not planning on going

anywhere.”

He said A-town was currently

in talks with a number of agencies

including the Rata Foundation

about getting funding for

the repairs.

“If we were to do sausage

sizzles we’d never get there, so

we’re going to look into funding

applications and different agencies.

It’s probably not something

one outfit is going to fund, it

might be a joint venture between

different people.”

Mr Roberts said the gym

had offered so much to its

surrounding community for

many years and having this

stability meant they could

continue to make a difference.

It was not uncommon for these

campers to leave piles of rubbish

and human waste behind, Ms

Money said.

“They’ll put their rubbish out

beside their vans in the car parks

and then they’ll just take off.”

She said it was common for

freedom campers near Thomson

Park to go into

the sandhills and

they use those

as their toilet if

they’re not close

enough to a toilet

. . . if you ever take

a look down there

Kim Money you’ll find toilet

paper around.”

Efforts to stop this behaviour

had been somewhat successful,

but more needed to be done by

the city council to address the

issue fully.

“We’ve had Government funding

for the new loo to be put in at

Thomson Park . . . they are using

it, but some of the ones who are

parking further down aren’t, said

Ms Money.”

She said not enough ‘no freedom

camping’ signage was up

in the most popular spots and

this was also contributing to the

problem.

“We’ve already asked staff to

put up a sign in the car park at

Thomson Park, but there are not

enough signs. We don’t have any

signs in the North Beach car park

and some of the parking bays opposite

Thomson Park also don’t

have signs.”

The city council spokesperson

said it had listened to Mrs

Money’s concerns and would be

installing more signage in both

car parks next month.

Ms Money said the problem

did not end here though.

She said the number of city

council staff employed to police

freedom campers in these areas

was too small.

“There’s only two for Banks

Peninsula and along our coast,

so they’re really stretched. As a

community board, we do need to

be getting the message across that

perhaps the compliance officers

over the summer period need to

be increased.”

The city council spokesperson

said it had 26 enforcement officers

with the authority to hand

out freedom camping fines, but

Exploring Antarctica on a kayak

A CHRISTCHURCH woman is

about to head to Antarctica to

kayak with an Olympian – all in

the name of inspiring others to

get out and explore.

Ara Institute of Canterbury

learning adviser Georgina

Archibald, 29, is one of five

young people selected to take

part in the Antarctic Heritage

Trust’s Inspiring

Explorers

Expedition.

“This will

so I’m thrilled

to have been

selected,” said

Miss Archibald.

Next month Miss Archibald,

who lives in Woolston, and the

expedition team – including

Olympic slalom canoeist Mike

Dawson – will travel to the

Antarctic Peninsula via South

America on a One Oceans

Expeditions vessel.

Once in Antarctica, they will

have the opportunity to explore

the region in kayaks with help

from guides and Dawson.

“Going to Antarctica is

incredible but being able to

kayak there will be even more

amazing . . . it means we’ll

be able to get up close to the

landscape and wildlife,” said

Miss Archibald.

As she counts down to the

trip, her focus is on training and

ensuring she has the right gear.

“I’ve been enjoying kayaking

around Banks Peninsula over

the summer. However, the warm

in Antarctica, and one of the

expedition’s biggest challenges

will be managing the extreme

“My message will be focused

Fire rages, homes at risk

South New

Brighton

School gets

garden grant

• By Matt Slaughter

SOUTH NEW Brighton School

has received a $1000 grant to

install a community garden on

its grounds.

The school was one of 30 from

across New Zealand which

received $25,000 between them

from Countdown to go towards

sustainability projects.

The garden space will include

a greenhouse made of plastic

bottles, a shed, an orchard and

a garden bed with fruit and vegetables

selected by the pupils.

Sustain South Brighton community

activator Samantha Fay,

who has two children – Ezra

and Ella – at the school, submitted

the successful funding

application.

Ms Fay said the garden will

also include a 40m strip with

fruit trees planted, owned and

maintained by pupils’ families.

Fruit and vegetables from the

garden will be available for both

pupils and the school’s neighbours

to enjoy.

Both groups will take joint

responsibility for its upkeep, she

said.

Ms Fay said the garden will

aim to promote healthy eating

to pupils and be used for educational

exercises.

It would allow pupils “to grow

something right from the start

and then take it from garden to

table,” she said.

NURSES ANITA van der

Velden and Jane Yellowlees

will soon be Rotorua-bound

in a couple of classic Morris

Minors.

On April 15, the two will be

travelling 850km in Myrtle, a

67-year-old convertible, and

Audrey, a 60-year-old saloon,

to raise money for the New

Zealand Spinal Trust.

Burwood Spinal Unit registered

nurse Ms Yellowlees will

be at the wheel of Myrtle with

her colleague Mrs van der

Velden navigating.

“We will be hurtling along

with the wind in our hair,”

said Mrs van der Velden.

Mrs van der Velden’s husband

is going to be driving

Audrey, with their teenage son

Metin as navigator.

Knowing that she owned a

“lovely Morris Minor,” Mrs

van der Velden invited her

colleague Ms Yellowlees to a

classic car rally.

Mrs van der Velden has

worked at the spinal unit for

nearly 20 years and Ms Yellowlees

for six years.

“Jane flippantly said she

might drive her car, Myrtle,

to the Morris Minor convention

in Rotorua and I casually

replied: ‘I will be your navigator’.”

ROADIE: (From left) – Burwood Spinal Unit registered nurses Anita van der Velden and

Jane Yellowlees, with Brian and Metin van der Velden. Their journey begins on April 15,

leaving from Pukeko Junction, south of Amberley, and returning April 25.

PHOTO: LEO MCCONCHIE ​

“We are paying for the trip

ourselves but hope to spread

the word about the wonderful

work the people of the

New Zealand Spinal Trust

are achieving and raise some

much-needed funds in the

process.”

Mrs van der Velden said

when she told her husband

about their plans he wanted

to go too. “But our two Morris

Minors, Shrek and Monty,

weren’t really up to it.”

“I said to Brian: ‘Well we

have got some money set aside

to paint the house – why don’t

we buy another Morrie instead?’

And so we got Audrey.”​

Mrs van der Velden said her

uncle, who passed away a few

years ago, spent many years in

a wheelchair after sustaining a

T4 level injury at work.

“He was always helping

others and is an inspiration

to me. Compared to the

challenges he faced, and the

challenges that many with a

spinal cord injury still face

every day, any small hiccups

along our little trip will be just

a wee bump in the road.”

spoilt for

choice

Diverse craft beers draw

customers to local bar

Offering an extensive selection of craft

beers, the Twisted Hop in Ferry Road

draws customers from a wide swathe of

the city’s eastern and southern suburbs,

who meet there to enjoy the variety and

quality of beers and the friendly local vibe.

Head barman Dustin has his eye on the

ball when it comes to ‘limited editions’,

introducing a constantly changing lineup

of guest brews from New Zealand and

overseas.

The hazy IPAs (Indian Pale Ales)

are especially on trend at present, with

customers enjoying the distinctive ‘hoppy’

flavours, Dustin says.

Cask ales are another favourite, the caskconditioned

beers being produced using

the old-school English method of brewing.

The food at the Twisted Hop is equal to

the beers in flavour and quality, with head

chef Tada smoking and marinating the

meats on site, and making preserves and

chutneys from scratch, while sous chef

Kura is known as the ‘Pork Ribs Queen’,

for her melt-in-the-mouth ribs.

The food is cooked tapas style and

served as shared platters, which allows

more flexibility of choice for diners.

Live music adds another twist to the

atmosphere at the Twisted Hop, with

various artists performing at least twice a

week.

There is also a function room available

for private parties and business meetings

with catering to suit.

The Twisted Hop’s

annual Cider Fest

is set for Saturday

March 2, with 15

extra taps delivering

a range of ciders, while chef Tada has

put together a special menu for the day

with dishes to complement the ciders.

Starting at 12 noon it will be a family

day, plus there will be live music. Tickets

can be purchased at the bar.

The Twisted Hop is located at 616

Ferry Road, Woolston. There is free

parking at the rear, and a courtesy coach

is being introduced within the next few

weeks.

Arawa crowned NZ’s

top canoe club

SPORTS

after big medal haul

• By Gordon Findlater

ARAWA CANOE Club have

been crowned the top club in the

country after capturing 22 gold

medals at the NZ and Oceania

canoe sprint championships on

Lake Karapiro.

The Kerrs Reach club collected

65 medals in total, including 22

gold, 25 silver and 18 bronze.

They finished ahead of North

Shore on 17 golds and Poverty

Bay with 14 golds.

“I just think we’ve got a really

good group who feed off each

other at the moment and are

constantly pushing each other.

They’re starting to get some

results now,” said Arawa coach

Paul Fidow.

The club’s dominance was on

show in the under-18 women’s

division. In the under-18 K1 200

A final, Arawa athletes made up

seven of the nine starters.

“To have that many from one

club in an A final is pretty fantastic,”

said Fidow.

The biggest haul was made

by Olivia Brett, who won five

gold medals in the under-18 K1

200, under-18 K1 500, under-18

K2 200, under-18 K2 500 and

under-18 K4 500. Brett also won

a bronze medal in the K1 200

under-23 Oceania championship

category.

She is now all but sure to

represent New Zealand at the

ICF junior and under-23 canoe

sprint world championships in

Romania in August.

“I think she’ll have a really

good crack at the world junior

title this year,” said Fidow.

Brett has some good genes

– her father Steve won the 55 and

over masters’ 1000m event. Her

brother Stephen Brett also played

39 games for the Crusaders in

the late 2000s.

There was also family success

for sisters Ngariti and Isla

Mackenzie. Ngariti won gold in

the under-14 K1 200, under-14

K2 200 and under-14 K4 200.

Meanwhile, Isla won gold in the

tyros division K1 100, K1 200

and K1 500.

While Arawa have been the

nation’s dominant club in recent

years, Fidow says they’re always

looking at how to become

stronger as they build up to

defending their club title in 12

months.

TEAM WORK: Arawa’s under-18 K4 women’s teams won both

the K4 200 and 500.

DUO: Tilly Pritchard and Jessica Nisbett

(above) teamed up to win silver in both

the under-18 K2 200 and 500.

DOMINANT: Pieta Luthi, Olivia Brett

and Tilly Pritchard (right) completed

the podium for Arawa in the women’s

under-18 K1 200 and K1 500.

Plan to do up historic Kapuatohe houses

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Jess Gibson

TWO HISTORIC Belfast

properties will be rented by the

city council.

The city council will spend

almost $400,000 renovating

Kapuatohe Dwellings and

Kapuatohe Cottage on Main

North Rd.

Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

members

approved the

city council’s

recommendation

to use the two

buildings as

residential

Sam

MacDonald

properties last

week.

The $370,000​

restoration of

the Kapuatohe Dwellings and

$26,000 restoration of Kapuatohe

Cottage was approved in 2017

as part of a heritage repair and

strengthening project in the city

council’s Long Term Plan budget.

However, community board

chairman Sam MacDonald

has raised concerns over the

restoration costs.

“There’s going to be a lot

of money pumped into them

and my concern is that it’s not

going to stop with what’s been

allocated,” said Mr MacDonald.

He said the age of the buildings

as well as compliance laws

for rental properties, such as

compulsory insulation from

July 1, could mean city council

staff end up asking the board for

more money. “As long as they

can be tenanted at market rate.

It’s important that we maximise

the return to the ratepayer

or else we are just sitting on

assets that provide no value,”

HISTORY: The

Kapuatohe

Dwellings

were used as a

schoolhouse for

teachers in 1878,

while Kapuatohe

Cottage (above)

was built in 1912.

said Mr MacDonald. “When

the ratepayers are putting in

money to historically significant

buildings, they shouldn’t be

restricted to the public all year

round. During heritage week

they should have a bit of access.”

A 2010 management

plan for Kapuatohe Reserve

recommended the buildings

are occupied so the temperature

and moisture could be

managed.

During a public engagement

process in March last year,

one applicant’s interest in

operating a business out of the

Kapuatohe Dwellings was denied

as it did not comply with the

management plan.

Both buildings were occupied

by tenants before they were

damaged in the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

REAL ESTATE

An unparalleled lifestyle in magical Moncks Bay

242 Main Road, Redcliffs - “As-Is, Where-Is”

Auction: Thursday, 14 March 2019 Unless Sold Prior

4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 3 living rooms | 1 office/study | 2 car-garage | 2 off-street parks | Listing Number SM0166

Treasured by two generations and offering

a truly once in a lifetime opportunity, this

tantalizing home upon a 2853m2 section

enjoys an overwhelming tranquil setting and

is presented to the market on an uninsured

“as-is, where-is” basis.

Situated in the tightly held locale of magical

Moncks Bay, this property makes a memorable

first impression and was constructed in the

1960s but has naturally received extensive

modern enhancements including a Bruce

Banbury architectural renovation in 2004.

Resort-style serenity is provided by the

colourful Clivias as well as the established

greenery and palms trees that border the

swimming and spa pool, with the outstanding

views and majestic cliff face backdrop only

escalating the property’s visual appeal.

Spacious living areas are complemented

by the sizeable Kwila deck, water feature

and idyllic alfresco surroundings which

have previously hosted a wedding and could

continue to be the scene of many memorable

occasions.

Skylights, the superb use of timber, a

contemporary colour scheme and the

magnificent stone fireplaces create an

incredibly inviting ambience indoors where

you’ll find four double bedrooms, two

bathrooms and a relaxing sunroom area that

comes complete with a spa bath.

With an expansive lawn area and the

picturesque garden at the rear of the property

both epitomise peace and privacy and offer

access up to the top of the section where

you can sit and admire the ocean vistas over

Moncks Bay incorporating from Shag Rock

and right along the Pegasus Bay coastline.

This property can potentially be subdivided

which furthers your options and adds

another element of interest for buyers.

Ensconced in a private lane that sits across

from the waterfront, this property is also

positioned to enjoy the area’s celebrated

microclimate and is located within easy reach

of the beaches, boating facilities, Barnett

Park and the amenities in both Redcliffs and

Sumner.

With floors needing repiling and being sold

uninsured, deemed uneconomical to repair,

this unique “as-is, where-is” opportunity is a

real game changer with the feel good factor

and is guaranteed to attract attention. Your

earliest viewing is advised.

Open Homes: Wednesdays, Saturdays

and Sundays 1:00pm - 1:45pm.

See you at the open homes or for a private

viewing or for more information contact

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

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.”
