Speed limit

plan ‘great

for safety’

– residents

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

A PLAN to lower the speed limits

for roads in the south-west has

been applauded by Halswell and

Hornby residents.

The city council is seeking

feedback on lowering the limits

along several roads in the area.

Under the suggested changes,

most roads would have a 60km/h

limit, while some – Halswell

Junction Rd and Kennedys Bush

Rd, as well as parts of Cashmere

Rd and Hendersons Rd – may

be changed to 50km/h. John

Paterson Drive and roads in the

new Cloverden subdivision, off

Murphys Rd, have a proposed

40km/h limit.

A 60km/h speed limit is

proposed for Marshs, Shands,

Springs, Hodgens, Fountains,

Whincops, Downies, Quaifes,

Sabys, Sutherlands and Hoon

Hay Valley Rds, as well as

Cashmere Rd (between

Kennedys Bush Rd and the

existing 50km/h zone north of

Hoon Hay Valley Rd).

The proposed changes have

been welcomed by residents.

Hornby’s Mark Peters fully

supports the plan.

“It is great for safety on Springs

Rd, he said.

from the editor’s desk

YOU HAVE to applaud Eva Haerewa and

Jazz Thorman in their bid to make cycling

safer (see page 1).

Eva has very personal reasons why – her

older sister Sharla was tragically killed

when she was hit by a truck in Lincoln Rd while biking to work.

Her death highlighted how vulnerable cyclists are on our roads.

And Eva herself has had a close call. She was knocked off her

bike while on the way to school, but luckily escaped with minor

injuries.

So Eva and Jazz have via funding been able to hand out 75

high-vis vests to other pupils at their school, with a design to

make them more “cooler” for kids of their age.

Good stuff.

Cyclist rides through cancer

Wins gold

10 months

after surgery

DENNIS PARKER hasn’t let

cancer get in the way of winning

gold medals.

The St Martins resident took

out the 65-69 category at the

New Zealand age group M7 road

cycling national championships.

Less than a year earlier in June,

he had surgery to remove several

tumours after his hairdresser

noticed a lump on his neck.

“This is a result that for most

of last year I would not have

thought possible,” he said.

Tests revealed he had cancer

in his tonsils with an additional

tumour in his neck.

Only a week prior to his

diagnosis, Mr Parker won his age

category in Le Race.

After his operation he couldn’t

eat, drink, speak or swallow,

but he worked on re-building

his health and fitness by doing

45min walks every second day.

After six weeks he was back on

the bike training.

Mr Parker said it’s been a

challenging time, both physically

and emotionally, dealing with

cancer and the post-operative

recovery process.

CHAMPION: Dennis Parker won the 65-69 category at the New Zealand age group M7

road cycling national championships just 10 months after he had surgery to remove several

tumours.

The right side of his neck and

his shoulder are still numb due

to nerve damage, but he said he

feels about 90 per cent back to

normal.

Maybe more like 100 per cent

when cycling.”

He has been able to restart his

governance and management

support business in the notfor-profit

sector, and has added

another area of support – health,

cancer and recovery.

He has also reached out to

Canterbury District Health

Board to thank everyone

involved in his care and recovery.

“To my medical support team –

your interventions, support and

advice has been awesome,” he

said.

Keeping kids

Speed limits under review

safe on bikes

•From page 1

The nursing student was on her

way to work when a 75-year-old

truck driver took a turn without

seeing her. She was hit and pulled

under the truck. The driver

pleaded guilty to careless driving

causing death and was sentenced

to pay reparations and disqualified

from driving for

eight months.

Last year Eva was

also knocked off

her bike by a vehicle

while she was cycling

to school. She was

but said she was

shaken after the incident.

“These are the reasons why

I decided it was important to

stand up and do something that

could help save the lives of others,

especially kids who cycle or scooter

to school,” said Eva.

With funding help from Youth

Voice Canterbury’s ‘big ideas

fund’, Eva and Jazz have gifted

75 fluro vests to pupils who cycle

to school. They are adorned with

a surfer-inspired design and the

message ‘marutau – be safe’. “It

was important to us that the design

would be seen as cool by other kids

to overcome the ‘that’s naff’ thing

that stops us from wearing this

type of safety clothing,” said Jazz.

CATCHMENT: The flood risk in Woolston and Linwood has been reduced.

Drainage scheme reduces flood risk

A $19 MILLION land drainage

scheme has reduced the flood

risk for dozens of properties in

the Woolston and Linwood area.

Thousands of native trees and

plants have been planted in Te

Oranga Waikura Urban Forest,

which sits off Ferry Rd and covers

2.75ha.

The forest, which is open to

the public, acts as a storage basin

in heavy rain events, reducing

the frequency and severity of

flooding in the surrounding

area.

As part of the flood mitigation

work, Bells Creek has also

been realigned and naturalised

through Linwood College.

The realignment of the creek

means Linwood College has

additional buildable land that it

can use to accommodate future

growth.

The sports field at Edmonds

Park can also be used as a

stormwater basin.

It has been excavated by about

1m to form a stormwater basin,

which can be used to store excess

water when it rains heavily.

A new stormwater pump

station has also been built in

Richardson Tce.

Its recent commissioning

marks the completion of the

Bells Creek flood mitigation

work.

The pump station is important

because it allows the catchment

to drain when water levels in the

Heathcote River are high, city

council land drainage manager

Keith Davison said.

“Without the pump station,

the existing gravity outfall

cannot discharge water from the

catchment until the water level

in the Heathcote drops lower

than the outfall pipe, which

means water backs up in the

catchment causing flooding.”

Lay of the Land

Brent Forbes

Brent Forbes exhibits his latest work in a solo show

‘Lay of the Land’ at Little River Gallery which opens

Saturday June 1st.

Brent writes about his painting practice. “It’s like

driving somewhere. A shape, a curve in the road or a

certain piece of light comes to your attention then just

as quickly disappears in the rear-view mirror. Several

kilometres down the road the same thing happens

again, each new vista either forgotten or somehow

remembered, an accumulation of random memories.

Upon arrival you now have a loose set of images

in your mind – some can be tied to a certain

place, others cannot – but either way there has

been a conscious and unconscious engagement

with your surroundings.

Then you head into the studio and use these points

of reference to start working. But working is

something else. There is experimentation, conflict

and resolution. There is engagement and restraint.

There is a journey with its own rules.

Sometimes you end back up where you started, but

if you are lucky you can end up somewhere new –

discovered because you had an idea of where you

wanted to go but as you set off you threw the map

out the window.”

Fence removal pleases

SOUTHERN VIEW

News

Now

Fire rages, homes at risk

• By Louis Day

THE FENCE at the bottom

of Balmoral Hill has been

removed.

The fence, which was put there

following the February 22, 2011,

earthquake, was removed on

Tuesday after the city council

found it was no longer needed.

Over the last

18 months the

city council

has been

undertaking

a review and

clean-up of the

Christine

Toner

fences remaining

around the city

post-earthquake.

“There was a delay in

removing the fence as there

was a redundant drain that

had to be made safe. As this

has happened, and other

maintenance was undertaken

(trimming of vegetation), the

fence has been removed,’’ said

city council delivery transport

and planning manager Lynette

Ellis.

Redcliffs Residents Association

chairwoman Christine

Toner was delighted to see the

fence removed.

“It is just fantastic, we are just

absolutely thrilled about it,” she

said.

MAKEOVER: Contractors have removed the fence at the

bottom of Balmoral Hill.

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board member

Darrell Latham thought the

removal of the fence would

enhance the entrance into the

village.

“This is a such stunning

location

with beautiful cliffs

and coastal areas through which

thousands of people transit

daily. The removal of the fence

and the trimming of the

vegetation is really positive

and it is another box ticked

in the return to normality for

residents on this side of town,”

he said.

ACTION: The design for the $22 million pool and community

facility on the corner of Smith St and Linwood Ave has been

approved. ​

Linwood Pool design signed off

• By Matt Slaughter

A CONCEPT design for the

new $22 million Linwood Pool

complex has been approved.

The site is set to open in late

2021. The facility, which was

signed off by the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board, will be built on the

corner of Smith St and Linwood

Ave. It will include a 25m lane

pool, deep-water pool with an

area for jumping off, family spa

pool, learn to swim pool, toddler

pool and a water deck.

There will also be an outdoor

community space with a

gathering area, picnic tables,

tennis and multi-use courts,

cycle stands and car parks.

The facility will be integrated

with Linwood Park and

offer a range of indoor and

outdoor recreational activities.

Community meeting rooms and

a kitchen will also be included in

the design.

Linwood Ward city

councillor Yani Johanson

said conversations about the

possibility

of building a

facility like this

in Linwood had

been happening

for about 20

years.

It would be a

great asset for

the community

once it was

Yani

constructed, Cr Johanson said.

“It does point to a really

significant investment into a

community that certainly has

been overdue for it.”

Community benefits from basketball court

Fire rages, homes at risk

A HOON Hay basketball court

has been transformed into a

well-lit community hub, thanks

to a group of motivated young

men.

New floodlights, a sheltered

barbecue area, tiered seating and

extra picnic tables and rubbish

bins have been added to the

basketball court at Hoon Hay

Park, which has also been given a

fresh coat of paint.

The group of 10 Pacific Island

youths involved, who are

now aged 19 and have known

each other since they started

school together at Rowley

Avenue School, are all keen

basketball players and have been

campaigning for improvements

to their local court for four years.

With support from the Cross

Over Trust and Spreydon

Youth Community Trust, they

started fundraising when they

were in their mid-teens before

approaching the Spreydon-

Cashmere Community Board

for help.

They spoke at a board

meeting and later took part in

the city council’s Annual Plan

workshops to advocate for their

ideas, accompanied by their

mums. Their vision was to make

Hoon Hay park a safe, well-used

space, which would be appealing

to all generations of the local

community.

Along with financial support

from the community board and

the city council, they have also

received grants from the Rata

Foundation, Rotary Club and

Lions Foundation.

Michael Pule, 19, who has been

involved since the project began

and is now training to become

a youth worker himself, says he

is proud the group’s ideas have

been listened to and supported.

“The main part for me

is having the adults and

community back us, and now

seeing it coming to life. I’m

pretty pumped that we’ve had

a youth voice and been listened

to and been able to create

a safe environment for the

community.”

Basketball is so popular in

the area that Mr Pule and other

members of the group have

started organising a Hoon Hay

Hoops community basketball

competition. The last event in

2017 attracted about 200 people.

Hoon Hay Hoops will be

held in October using the new

grandstand, lighting and other

facilities, and is likely to be even

bigger. The idea has also taken

off in other areas, with a Hornby

Hoops competition under

way and one about to start in

Bromley.

Cross Over Trust community

worker Roy Kenneally said the

youths involved are “stoked”

with the final result after years of

effort.

“It’s a community-led

project and gives power back

to the people, especially in a

community like ours, which has

twice as many kids as most other

suburbs.

“They’re role models for the

next generation and they’ve

shown what can be done when

you take ownership. They’ve

learnt that if you really want

something then you have to work

hard to get it.”

City council community

recreation adviser Emma Pavey,

who has been involved with

the group for several years, said

what they’re doing is “absolutely

exceptional.”

“This is a real grassroots

project that’s been driven

completely by these young

people. Their commitment and

energy is fantastic. They’re so

much fun to be around and

they’re always willing to help

out. They’re quite thoughtful

boys and it’s fantastic that it’s all

coming together for them.”

Mrs Pavey encouraged the

young men to take part in the

city council-run Get Set Go

workshops to learn more about

organising community events.

They have also helped out with

the Hoon Hay Fiesta and the

Rugby League Pacific Series.

“They’ve become really

well-organised and they know

how to run things themselves

now.”

Hopes for trampoline success

SPORT

• By Jacob Page

HORNBY’S Olympia

Gymsport’s Lauren Sheere is

aiming to earn a medal on the

trampoline at the Australian

Gymnastics Championships,

this week in Melbourne.

The Heaton

Intermediate

student

and national

championship

medallist

made the

final in the

Lauren Sheere

under-15

age-group

at the same event last year but

that was while competing up a

grade against more experienced

competitors.

Lauren will compete in the

individual category as well as

the synchro event in the international

youth grade, where she

will team up with an Aucklandbased

friend.

“The two things are form

and height, they get measured

on their time of flight and how

long they are in the air and also

where they land, her mum,’’

Sandy Sheere said.

“It’s a really big competition,

so I’d like to make the final

first which is the top eight and

then push for the podium from

Championships last year.

there,’’ Lauren said.

“Because I over-qualified last

year, I was moved up a grade

and while I still made the final

which was awesome, I’m looking

forward to competing with my

own age group this year.”

“She had a real trade-off to

compete in the higher grade,

because she had a real chance of

medalling in her usual grade,’’

Mrs Sheere said.

Lauren trains and competes

for Olympia and can train for

up to 12 hours a week in preparation

for the event.

“I don’t get much time at home

sometimes but I ride horses as

well but training is worth it,”

Lauren said.

“The last two months has been

some of the best training I’ve

had and I’ve picked up a new

skills, so I’m feeling really good.

“Winning a medal would

be worth it, it would be really

cool. One day I’d love to go to

the Olympics but that will be in

a few years,” Lauren said.

“My main goal is to qualify for

the world champs in November

next year.”

TWO WOOLSTON boxers have

warmed up for the South Island

Golden Gloves at Kaiapoi this

weekend by winning medals as

part of the New Zealand team at

the Arafura Games in Darwin.

Chrissy Reid won gold in the

women’s middleweight 75kg class

while Trevor Swainson earned a

bronze medal in the men’s 81kg

class.

Reid beat South Australia’s

Laura Wright in the semifinals

and won the final against

Queensland’s Rhiana Kerr.

Swainson lost his semi-final

against Queensland’s Roger

Grant.

The Arafura Games saw boxers

representing Australian states

compete in various weight classes.

Both boxers will be aiming to

at least replicate their results at

from the Arafura

Games in Darwin.

Medals for boxers

represent New Zealand on an international

stage for the first time.

“I know I lost the fight but I

was actually really happy with

how I performed, it was a great

opportunity.

Swainson has boxed competitively

for the past three years and

is a former South Island champion.

Reid, has only been in the

sport for the past 18 months and

described her time in Darwin as

surreal.

The Irish-born engineer said

it was special to represent New

Zealand for the first time.

“To wear the silver fern and

come away with the win was

something I couldn’t believe,” she

said.

“It took a while to sink in.”

Reid made the Canterbury

team last year and she hoped to

replicate the efforts once again

this year.

“I got into boxing for fitness

but also I like having something

to train for, an end goal and

fighting an opponent at the end of

a training camp does that for me.”

Tasty Middle Eastern takeaways

a popular choice in Halswell

Now firmly established as one of

Halswell’s most popular takeaway food

outlets, Souvlaki King offers an extensive

range of authentic Middle Eastern food

that’s fresh, healthy and delicious.

In the last few weeks they have introduced

two new items to the menu, offering even

more choice for customers. These are the $11

Snack Box, which comprises scrumptious

hot chips with lamb, beef, chicken, falafel

or mixed, topped with cheese and barbeque

sauce or your choice of chili sauce, and the

traditional Shawarma, which is a roll filled

with meat, vegetarian falafel or feta cheese,

and topped with barbeque or your choice

of chili sauce. This is also $11, or $14 with

hot chips.

Both these items are proving very popular

for lunch, the business owners say.

The souvlakis are available in three

portion sizes – small, large or triple, with

a choice of chicken, lamb, beef, kofta or

falafel and served with coleslaw, lettuce,

tzatziki, hummus and your choice of chili

or barbeque sauce.

All ingredients used at

Souvlaki King are sourced

locally to ensure freshness and

quality, including the meats,

which are supplied by the local

butchery.

The falafel is freshly prepared

every day to their own secret recipe,

and is another very popular item,

even for non-vegetarian customers,

and all the salads and sauces are

prepared on the premises every day.

For a sweet taste, they offer the traditional

baklava, and cake slices,

while beverages

include a selection

of coffees, teas, hot

chocolate, milk shakes

and thick shakes.

Souvlaki King has just

launched its website, www.

souvlakiking.nz, so you can

now order online and your

food will be ready to pick up

and pay for when you arrive.

You can also order by phone,

(03) 322-4888. Pre-ordering is

especially recommended on the

busy Friday and Saturday nights.

Souvlaki King is located at 1

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 sments 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 annual

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

coff e cart is parked beside the

railway in Ro leston, and a pi za

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.

“You can just about guarant e

Mr Mora said he wasn’t sure if

“I’d like to think so because the

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 sments 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, all

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 themselves 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.”

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

planned 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 Jones 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 annual

plans are a l about lo bying the

sign-off

this week

• By Sarla Donovan

THE OWNERS of Sumner’s Cave

Rock Apartments are 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 apartments 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.”

The bylaw comes as an increasing

In the past year, the district

council has received five inquiries

about se ting up a mobile busine s

for a resource consen to create a

qua ry.

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’s submi sion.

“I’d like to think so because the

city council has had their eyes

open as we l over 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.
