Road signs, lines baffle motorists

BAFFLING: Motorists say the array of different signs at

the State Highway 73, Dawsons and Chattertons Rds

intersection in West Melton is confusing.

TRAFFIC SIGNS and road

markings continue to confuse

people in the district.

The intersection of State

Highway 73, Dawsons and

Chattertons Rds in West Melton

is baffling motorists who say

there are too many different

signs.

Motorists also appear to be

confused about where they can

park outside The Famous Grouse

Hotel after the district council

removed two parks on Gerald St

last year to improve safety at the

pedestrian crossing.

The West Melton intersection

features four different speed limit

signs, a no entry and two stop

signs.

West Melton resident Cherryl

Davis called it a “mess of signs,”

which has been confusing her for

quite a while.

“Navigating that intersection is

extremely confusing, especially

if you’re from out of town,” she

said.

Mrs Davis took to Facebook

to share her frustrations on the

West Melton Community Page.

Within a day, there were more

than 30 comments on the post.

One comment said the stop

sign was difficult to see. “It gets

hidden by the lamp post with the

100 sign on it. If you don’t use it

often I could easily see why you

could miss the stop or only see it

at the last minute, especially as

there are so many other signs in

your view,” it said.

ROAD SIGNAGE continues to be a source

of confusion in the district.

We’ve reported on the issue before, and

we have more again today.

New concerns have been raised on

the West Melton Community Page on

Facebook (see page 1).

The district council says 68 traffic management plans are

submitted to the council each month, a reflection of the large

amount of development.

So mistakes can happen. But some things just don’t add up.

Take the two former car parks outside The Famous Grouse

in Gerald St, Lincoln. They are car parks no more for safety

reasons. But people still park there because the white car park

lines remain. A reasonable defence if the constabulary decide to

issue a ticket.

Former mayor to

stand again in elections

• By Devon Bolger

A CONTEST has begun with

former mayor Bill Woods

announcing he is running for

the top spot in October’s local

body elections.

Mr Woods and Mayor Sam

Broughton are the only two currently

running in the race with

nominations closing this Friday.

Mr Woods said he’s excited to

be running and looking forward

to campaigning again.

“It’s going to be a challenge for

the people of Selwyn to decide

whether to replace one of the

country’s youngest mayors to

one of the oldest.”

The 76-year-old was the second

ever mayor in the district

and served one term from 1992-

1995.

He unsuccessfully ran against

Mr Broughton in 2016 and

received 1352 votes.

Mr Woods said it was the

recent rate hikes that led to him

deciding to run again.

“The council is out of control

and it needs somebody to bring

it back into line, that person is

me,” he said.

The first thing he would

change is to put the elected

councillors back in control of

things, he said.

“Township committees, hall

committees and community

committees are taking away

people’s rights and I would like

to give that power back.”

Mr Woods said he will be

campaigning on splitting the

district in two for rates purposes.

“That means the major populous

area would be one and the

rural area would be another.”

The populous areas that

2019

becoming mayor of the Selwyn District.

should be split are Lincoln,

Prebbleton and Rolleston,

he said.

What he brings to the

table is his reputation,

Mr Woods said.

“I challenge you to

find something I have

taken on and failed at

or not followed through

with.

“I built the Springfield

doughnut off my own

back, I’ve raised funds

for St John including $60,000 for

a new ambulance, I really care

about this community.”

Leeston dump

station ready

this week

• By Devon Bolger

THE LEESTON community is

celebrating the installation of a

long-awaited wastewater dump

station.

It was installed in Station St

and will be up and running this

week.

Leeston Community

Committee chairman Lloyd

Clausen said they first brought

up the idea 10 years ago.

“We’ve been trying for ages

to get one and the idea is that it

will, hopefully, be just another

point of call for motor caravans

to stop and have a look around

Leeston,’’ he said.

The station is part of the work

started from the $267,800 the

Government awarded the district

council last year in round

two of funding from the Tourism

Infrastructure Fund.

The other projects include new

dump stations in Tai Tapu, Lake

Coleridge and Glentunnel. In total,

the stations will cost $90,000.

The community committee

requested the dump station as

part of the district council’s

2017-2018 Annual Plan.

Glentunnel’s new dump

station should also be operating

this week.

Business success earns Chile trip

• By Devon Bolger

ALLI KENNEDY has

dreams of being the boss of a

mega-corporation one day.

“I remember, probably 10

years ago, I asked my dad how

to make the most money, how

to become rich and he said you

start a business. That really stuck

with me,” the 17-year-old Lincoln

High School student said.

Alli was eight-years-old when

she first thought of owning a

business when she grew up.

“It just went from there. I got

into high school and started

taking business studies and

realised it was the path I want to

go down.”

The year 13’s potential as a

budding entrepreneur has been

recognised by national business

leaders.

She has been selected as one of

eight students to travel to Chile

in October after competing in

the Entrepreneurs in Action

business competition last month.

She was chosen to compete at

the competition in Wellington

from the 4000 participants in

the young enterprise scheme

across the country.

Her eight-person team won

both challenges at the event,

winning each member a total of

$7000 from Massey University

SKILLS: Alli Kennedy is going to Chile after a team she was

in successfully won the Entrepreneurs In Action business

competition last month.

and the trip to Chile.

On the trip, the students will

learn about local culture and

business and meet local entrepreneurs.

They will experience site visits

to established companies and

start-ups and they will work

with local students on business

challenges.

Going to Chile will really

help to build on her business

skills, Alli said.

“At the business competition,

I discovered the importance of

knowing the culture of a company

when working in business.

I think working with students in

chile and businesses there is really

going to improve my skills.”

Alli is also a part of the Lions

Foundation Young Enterprise

Scheme through Lincoln High

School.

Her team’s business Suck It

Straws created designer stainless

steel straws to reduce plastic.

They won the YES regional

marketing award last month.

Starting her own business and

seeing it succeed was a great moment,

Alli said.

“Being able to work with a real

business in school and seeing

what it’s like to work with people

and having success has been

really fun.”

Alli said all of this has led

to her deciding business is the

career for her.

“I’m going on to study entrepreneurship

and strategy at

Canterbury University next year

to get a Bachelor of Commerce.

“I’m excited to be going down

that path with my tertiary studies

and then, hopefully, after that

I’ll be getting experience and

eventually, I’ll own a business.”

the council is responsible

“I told the council that

The Lincoln

written to

Mr Chamberlain

said the old lines were

the yellow lines were

“The blacking out

has been worn and the

being arranged.”

The penalty for parking

on the yellow lines is

$60.

Petition under way in a

bid to improve safety at intersection

• By Devon Bolger

WEST MELTON residents

are taking their fight for safety

improvements on a controversial

intersection to Parliament.

The West Melton Residents’

Association is collecting signatures

for a petition to urge the

Government to approve funding

for immediate action on the State

Highway 73 and Weedons Ross

Rd intersection.

So far the

petition has

more than 650

signatures.

Association

chairman Tim

Schurr said they

Tim Schurr

decided to start

the petition

after proposed improvements

to the intersection were pushed

back.

“As a committee, we figured

that is not good enough and we

started looking at the options of

what we could do to cast a light

on the situation,’’ he said.

“Our only hope is to keep putting

a spotlight on this because

nobody else in Canterbury is

going to do it. It’s up to us and a

petition is one of the ways we can

do that.”

CAMPAIGN: The West Melton Residents’ Association is

collecting signatures for a petition wanting immediate action at

the intersection of State Highway 73 and Weedons Ross Rd. ​

Selwyn MP Amy Adams has

also been advocating for an upgrade

of the intersection and said

she supports the petition.

“A member of the residents’

association met with me a few

months ago and sought my advice

on how she and other West

Melton residents could continue

to raise the profile of this issue,”

she said.

Mrs Adams will personally

deliver the petition to Parliament

in November.

“I am very supportive of the

petition and have shared it on

my Facebook page in order to

encourage local residents and

concerned road users to sign it.”

The residents’ association has

been campaigning for more than

10 years for something to be

done about the intersection.

“That whole roading corridor

was due to be updated from

Yaldhurst right through to Aylesbury

and part of that upgrade

included the intersection,’’ Mr

Schurr said.

“That all changed last year,

budgets were adjusted and the

New Zealand Transport Agency

LINCOLN

Now

www.selwynsounds.co.nz

withdrew the project. We were

left without a plan.”

It was revealed last October

that safety improvements at

Weedons Ross Rd and SH73

weren’t included in the NZTA’s

National Land Transport Programme

for 2018-21.

The improvements had been

recommended for inclusion in

both the 2018/21 Regional and

Land Transport programmes.

NZTA figures show there have

been 11 crashes at the intersection

since 2006. One was serious

and 10 were minor or didn’t

cause injury.

NZTA director regional relationships

Jim Harland said the

intersection didn’t meet the new

threshold for funding under the

investment assessment framework.

“Using this framework, it was

assessed as a medium crash risk

and safety alignment, with a low

benefit cost ratio,’’ he said.

Mr Schurr said he hopes

the petition leads to traffic

lights being installed at the

intersection.

Delay over

quarry information

INFORMATION requested from

Fulton Hogan over its application

to open a quarry in Weedons has

been delayed.

The district council and

Environment Canterbury had

requested information on the

volume of groundwater which

would be extracted from the

quarry, bird strike mitigations,

and an update on draft

conditions.

Fulton Hogan has also

been asked to provide more

information on how its mobile

processing plant will be used.

The information was due back

on Friday but due to ECan and

the district council asking for

further information on traffic,

noise and landscape, Fulton

Hogan has more time.

The information will now be

released on August 16.

Weedons Residents’ Association

committee member Simon Moore

said it’s a continuation of the

process bending over backward

for the applicant.

“It’s just another example of

‘we’ll give you whatever time you

want to get yourself sorted out,

don’t worry it’s not a problem and

again no consultation with those

affected.”

Our People

Christine Cassin

Watching out for fair play in the fast lanes

Lincoln’s Christine Cassin

has spent 15 years with

her eye on the fast

lanes at national and

international swimming

competitions as a

International Swimming

Federation accredited

official – only one of six in

New Zealand. She talks

to Jacob Page about the

role

How did this all start for you?

Both my children were swimming

at Halswell and the club

asked me to help out.

When I joined the Swimming

Canterbury West Coast management

committee in 2005, I

joined because I felt I had skills

that were valuable and the other

members of that committee were

all qualified referees at the time.

They ran junior carnivals so I

started helping them and I felt

if they were going down to help

that I should go as well because I

was on the committee.

When did it start to become a

serious pursuit?

That was when I started refereeing

at national competitions

and that’s when the international

opportunities started. It’s really

TALENT: International swimming official Christine Cassin.

grown on me.

I first qualified as an inspector

of turns in 2005 but when

I started refereeing nationally

that’s when I really started to

gain a passion for what I was

doing. We are there to make sure

the swimmers have a fair and

equal opportunity.

Any benefit of the doubt goes

PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​

to the swimmer so if there is any

doubt you have to be 100 per cent

clear on what you saw before you

disqualify someone.

I’m one of six FINA registered

officials in New Zealand and I’m

incredibly proud of that achievement.

Each term is four years and

I just got another four year

term which started this year.

It’s a form of validation to get a

second term, like you’re doing

something right.

Reaction time is important

because the speed and touch at

which the swimmers are turning,

you do really need to be on

your game. The age of 65 is the

cut-off age and that makes sense,

you have to give younger people

an opportunity.

Can you talk about your time

at the World Championships

at Gwangju, South Korea last

month.

That’s been a real highlight,

there’s a lot of pressure and you

have to be at the top of your game

because there’s a lot going on but

to be that close to the best swimmers

in the world is a real thrill.

Did you ever think that you

would end up at an event like

that when you started out 15

years ago?

Absolutely not, I came into

this relatively late in life, I wasn’t

a competitive swimmer, and I’ll

be the first to admit I’ve sort of

done things backward to get to

‘I’d have the best seat in the house at times’

•From page 9

Do you have future goals that

you would like to achieve?

Obviously the Olympics next

year would be great, but since

I’ve just been to World Champs,

the chances that I’m selected for

that might not be high.

How come?

Speaking with other officials at

South Korea, the feeling was that

if you were picked to officiate at

the World Championships that

you wouldn’t be picked to go to

Japan next year.

That’s only the perception, we

haven’t been told anything official

but if that’s how it pans out then

I’m absolutely fine with that. I

have an idea of who may go from

the six of us (in New Zealand)

and if my feeling is correct then

that person deserves to go and I’ll

be very happy for them.

I’m absolutely fine with

how things have turned out,

it was just the talk of the people

in Korea that if you’ve done a

World Champs this year that

the Olympics may go to

someone else and that seems

logical and I’m comfortable with

that.

I would love to do something

every year but all six of us will

get an equal opportunity over

the next four years.

WATCHFUL: Christine Cassin has her eyes on a swimmer at the start of a FINA World

Championship event in South Korea last month.

I’ve been lucky enough to have What is it like waiting for

three FINA competitions in five that opportunity?

years and I would expect I’ll get I had no expectation that

another final appointment in the I’d be appointed to the World

next three years but maybe only Champs this year so it was a

one.

complete surprise to me. The

appointments are made by FINA

and it tells Swimming New

Zealand that then informs me.

Do you ever have any

pinch yourself moments while

you’re trying to do the job?

I’d have to say yes, to be

three feet from the best

swimmers and some of the best

athletes in the world, sometimes

you have to look around and

enjoy that.

I guess I’d have the best seat in

the house at times.

Is there a feeling that, like in

a game of rugby, you’ve done

a good job as an official if you

don’t become the centre of

attention?

Yes, I’m there to observe what

the swimmers are doing and

report any infringements but

I’m certainly happy when there’s

nothing to report.

Have there been other

highlights?

Being honoured by

Swimming New Zealand as

Technical Official of the Year

in 2014 and then the Sport

Canterbury Sports Awards

in 2016 was a real highlight as

well.

Are your children still

involved in the sport?

Holly swam at Jasi Swim

Club when she was at high

school and university and

now she does open water

swimming while my son

Ashley does iron man

competitions so they’re still

involved in their own way.

concern for homeowners. Mark says Birchfield

Energy and Resources has 5000 cubic metres of

ideal for wood burners as it is a hardwood with a long

burn time and is clean with little spark.

“We have a years worth of wood ahead of us that

deliver one bulk load or two four cubic metre loads

where customers in the same area could share

delivery costs.”

Birchfield Energy and Resources offers West Coast

sub-bituminous coal with low ash, low sulphur –

which provides clean burning. Coal is available from

the Creyke Road depot in 20 kg bags for the average

consumer or half ton bags for those that live out of

the depot, caters for all sized vehicles from cars with

trailers to truck and trailer units.

Ellesmere show class in the wet

• By Jacob Page

A COUPLE of tries, a penalty

and some resolute defence in

wet conditions helped Ellesmere

earn a 15-0 win over the

Cantabrians at Springston on

Saturday.

Their Tane Norton Cup

campaign will continue against

Canterbury Maori in Kirwee

on Saturday. Canterbury Maori

beat North Canterbury 21-14 in

the other competition game.

Tries to Ellesmere centre

Cameron Hay and wing James

Wilkins proved vital, while

Ashton Mulloy added a penalty

to help them ease past the

Cantabrians, which were made

up of Christchurch-based club

players.

It was a confidence boost

for the new-look team, which

are preparing for their annual

Southbridge Shield game against

North Canterbury in a fortnight.

Team manager Michael

Sheat said the wet and muddy

conditions made the game “a bit

of a dog fight at times,” but there

were plenty of positives to take

away.

“I thought our lineout was

much-improved on the first-up

performance and we got some

dominance at scrum time too,”

he said.

“When you’re faced with

conditions like that, it can be

easier to play without the ball at

times.

“I thought we adjusted well

and got our kicking game

going and really tried to control

territory as much as we could.”

Sheat said the performance

was a big improvement on

their loss to Mid-Canterbury

the previous week, and their

defensive energy was much

better.

“Clearly we leaked a few points

against Mid-Canterbury, so

for the guys to come together

and really tighten things up,

especially when they were under

pressure at times, was very

pleasing.”

Sheat said he expected

Canterbury Maori to have a big

forward pack, which will look to

dominate physically.

“We’ll certainly look at some

film during the week to see

how (Canterbury Maori) went,

but I know they have a number

of players on the fringes of

Canterbury B, so they’ll be a

tough proposition for us this

Saturday.”

Colts tested

in warm-up

ahead of

shield game

• By Jacob Page

THE ELLESMERE colts suffered

a 24-12 loss to the Ellesmere

Keas in the curtain-raiser to the

senior match at Springston on

Saturday.

The Keas were a composite

side of Ellesmere club players,

which aimed to give the colts

a test before their Southbridge

Shield game against North

Canterbury in a fortnight.

Team manager Dave Beatty

said the colts did well to race

out to a 12-0 lead, thanks to two

tries from halfback Tyler Power.

However, once the bigger Keas

forward pack started to get their

hands on the ball, they started to

dominate the game.

“They used a lot of one-off

runners and pick-and-goes and

the physicality was a big step up

for us.

“Overall, I thought we put in

a respectable performance in

conditions that did not suit us.”

Ellesmere beat the Mid-

Canterbury colts in their

opening game, and will take on

the Canterbury Maori colts at

Kirwee on Saturday.

Lincoln Combined

bowl semi-final

THE SELWYN United Red

and White Stripes finished

11th in the under-13 age-group

at the Futsal Club World

Championships in Florida.

The team won their opening

pool game but were beaten in

their next three games before

finishing the tournament with

a confidence-boosting 6-0 win

over Ethiopian club side Jinka.

Coach Ben Lapslie said he felt

the team could have finished

higher but conceding goals at the

wrong time cost them when it

mattered most.

“I said to the boys before our

last game that we needed to

make a statement and prove that

we belong with the best teams

here,” he said.

“We played well in patches

up until then but we put it all

together against Jinka, which

was good to see.

“That’s tournament football, if

you don’t turn up one day, then

you put yourself behind and

that’s what happened to us after

our first win.

“I felt like we could compete

with any team there but we made

some errors, which cost us a

higher place finish.”

Lapslie said the team have

had a busy six months after they

won the Australasian qualifying

tournament on the Gold Coast

in January.

“The boys will now take a term

off futsal just to refresh and we’ll

see where they go from here.”

Lapslie, who is also a national

THE THREE most consistent

teams in the Selwyn premier

netball competition showed

why they will likely be in the

semi-finals next month after

convincing wins on Saturday at

the Lincoln Event Centre.

Defending champions,

Greenpark A, last year’s beaten

finalists Broadfield A and

Greenpark B all earned valuable

competition points in week two.

Greenpark A beat Southbridge

A 65-49, Greenpark B took down

newly-promoted Prebbleton A

56-44 and Broadfield A got back

to winning ways with a 64-45

win over

Lincoln A.

before their

game against

Yvonne

a muchimproved

Southbridge

A team, but they put in a

composed performance.

“It was goal-for-goal for the

first quarter, but we put in a

strong second quarter,” she said.

“We looked after the ball that

we turned over and built a good

lead. It was pleasing because we

have girls coming back from

injury so it was a good result.”

Greenpark A are getting ready

to face Broadfield A on Saturday.

Broadfield A bounced

back from their draw

against Southbridge with a

commanding win against

Lincoln A.

Coach Yvonne Crichton-Hill

said it was a much more settled

effort from her team as they

build up to the finals. “We were

intense and focused across all

four quarters and through the

court. We got turnover ball and

converted it. I was pleased with

how the team picked themselves

up and improved.”

Crichton-Hill praised defender

Kayla Williams and injured

goal-keep Georgie Bolton, who

both had strong games.

Lincoln A coach Dawn Dalley

said with eight squad members,

her team looked a little flat and

they will need to address this

ahead of their next game.

Tai Tapu whizz-kids take out ODT quiz

TAI TAPU School pupils took

out the year 5 and 6 section of

Canterbury current events quiz

at Cobham Intermediate.

Young quizzers from across

Canterbury were tested on

topics, including who am I,

what am I, New Zealand places,

around the world mapping and

famous faces.

The Tai Tapu School team won

their section with 82 points out

of a possible 100.

Closely following in second

SCHOOLS

was Fendalton Open-Air School,

only two points behind the

champions with 80 points.

Prebbleton School secured

third, with a score of 79.

Tai Tapu champions Ethan

10, and Caleb O’Leary, 10, were

pleasantly pleased with their

win.

Edward said he “didn’t like the

faces” questions, but the team

enjoyed the challenges.

The North Loburn School

team won the year 7 and 8 quiz

with 89 points.

William Hassall, 12, Charley

Ward, 13, and Harry Witt, 12,

said they were happy to win the

quiz, but “it wasn’t planned.”

“The newspaper was the

hardest part,” Charley said.

The teams had to find answers

“The year 7 and 8 group were

AS I SAID in my last column,

we’ve travelled to Italy so Vittoria

can meet the family. And what a

journey it’s been.

Before we even left, Vittoria

caused her parents a heap of stress

with her first ambulance trip to

the emergency department, starting

on a course of antibiotics for

pneumonia, setting us back a day

on doctor’s orders.

It sounds bad, and it wasn’t

ideal, but it was all okay apart

from unsettling our sleep patterns.

So we were lucky, our pre-dawn

flight on Saturday went swimmingly.

Vittoria was happy to nap,

draw or watch cartoons all the

way to Brisbane where we stayed a

night with my sister-in-law Sarah.

The only niggle was that she

leaked on me because her nappy

was askew but, like for most parents

I think, that’s a non-event.

It looked like either the antibiotics

or time were working a treat

on Vittoria, so we were quietly

confident going into the 14-hour

leg to Dubai on Sunday night.

And again, it went pretty good.

Fourteen uneventful hours.

Arriving in Dubai we were all

tired, dishevelled, probably smelly

and definitely over trying to sleep

in an aircraft seat with a fidgety

toddler. Between us and relaxation,

were only four hours in an

airport and a six-hour flight. Easy

right? Spoiler alert – no.

Our luck ran out 20 minutes before

boarding started for our flight

to Venice when Vittoria vomited

all over the floor in the middle

of a packed terminal. And a little

on my shirt and shoes. Honestly,

what’s the protocol for that?

I just floundered in surprise for

a bit until Laura went into nurse

mode and sent me off to clean

Vittoria up while she “dealt with

it” in the splash zone.

Once we were as “fresh” as possible

and a suddenly exhausted

toddler crying in my arms, we

made our way to the gate where

we were told we could get Vittoria

checked up for free at the airport

clinic and wouldn’t miss our flight.

However, once the “ambulance”

arrives (literally a push trolley)

we were told that a full check at

the clinic might make us miss our

flight – great.

With all the vitals coming back

healthy, and Vittoria totally out to

it asleep, I was offered a difficult

choice; do further checks and

miss the flight or sign a waiver

saying “refused treatment” and

that if it gets worse it’s all on you.

Although I was confident to

sign away and just get to the flight

so we could be done with it, I felt

terrible anyway. So for three long

and stressful hours of the last flight

we thought of all the worst things

it could be – dehydration, gastro,

some sort of never-wake-up disease.

VITTORIA

& Matt

CONFIDENT: In Dubai,

unaware of what was coming

next.

And what does Vittoria do when

she finally wakes up? Sits up, laughs

and becomes the flight staff’s

darling by running laps around the

plane with a huge grin on her face

for the duration of the flight.

Anyway, we’re in Italy now and

ready for family time.

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in

ANYONE WHO knows

kawakawa, or Piper excelsum,

will be familiar with the holey

nature of its leaves.

The main herbivore causing

damage on these peppery leaves

is the native kawakawa looper,

Cleora scriptaria. The moths

are found throughout the year,

but mostly in the hotter months

throughout the North and

South Island.

The moths are extremely

variable in size and colour, but

often have a 30-55mm wingspan

and are brown in colour. The

wings have scalloped edges and

have a distinctive spot in the

middle of the forewings.

Newly-emerged females

antennae adapted for sensing

these chemicals. Pale green

cylindrical eggs are laid on

leaves of host plants in clusters

of three to 12. As well as

kawakawa, other hosts include

horopito, wineberry, ramarama

and akeake.

Young larvae are green but

usually turn browner as they get

older, reaching a length of up to

40mm.

The fully developed larvae

then descend to the leaf litter on

a silk thread and pupate close to

the soil.

Interestingly, herbalists like to

use the holey kawakawa leaves

rather than the undamaged

ones, as the damage caused

by the caterpillars stimulates

the production of defensive

chemicals that are beneficial for

medical creams.

There are many features in Acland Park you won’t find in

other subdivisions, all designed to create a safe and relaxed

environment and a strong sense of community.

These include areas designed to encourage hard surface play,

signalling a return to the good old days when kids were safe

and free to go and play in the street – and their parents were

happy to let them!

There’s also a centrally located Commercial Centre which

will include hospitality, retail, medical centre, and an Early

Learning Centre.

Sections priced from just

$155,000

Dare to compare the value and quality on offer with fenced

sections at significantly lower prices for a limited time

– so you’ll have more money to spend on your new home.

Selwyn Libraries Edge Connector

service hits the road

A new library service bringing popular programmes and resources to those who don’t have easy

access to a library had its first outing last week.

Residents of Castle Hill and Arthur’s Pass were the first to try out the Council’s new Edge

Connector service in its specially kitted out vehicle.

The service is designed to bring targeted library resources, programmes and services to communities,

schools, pre-schools and community groups not within easy reach of one of the district’s four libraries.

Its main focus is on communities 15 kilometres from a library.

Community Services and Facilities group manager, Denise Kidd, says the service has been

designed to be cost effective, efficient and flexible so it can bring things the whole community

want, but would otherwise be difficult to access. “We want to make sure those communities

across the district without easy access to a physical library have similar opportunities to others,

whether that’s through education on our online resources or bringing a specific programme that

caters to a group of residents of the particular community.”

It is expected regular visits to communities such as Windwhistle, Springfield, Dunsandel,

Southbridge, Hororata, Greendale, Glentunnel and Sheffield will begin in the next few weeks.

Other visits are being planned as the service assesses the needs and interest levels in particular

communities, and continues to work on logistics and opportunities.

The Edge Connector is fitted with wifi, computers, a touch screen online catalogue, printer

and scanner. It will bring a selection of books, magazines and DVDs along with tech kits that

can include microscopes, telescopes, robotic kits and entry level VR equipment, which can be

browsed or borrowed.

It will also be able to carry resources such as a 3D printer and sewing machines to allow for

specific programmes.

The newly purchased vehicle has a focus on cost effectiveness and environmental sustainability

with the electronics powered by two auxiliary batteries that charge while the van drives, or by a

solar panel on the roof. It also has low energy LED lighting and furniture designed to maximise

space, with reading spots for children and adults.

Council supports Selwyn students to advance in life

Council is offering scholarships for up to six senior local high school students to pursue their passion

and aspirations beyond school.

Applications for the tertiary scholarships have opened for year 12 and 13 students who live and study

in Selwyn and are planning to undertake full-time post-secondary school education or training at a

recognised New Zealand university, polytechnic or training institution next year.

The scholarships of up to $3000 will be available for students from Darfield High School, Ellesmere

College and Lincoln High School who have achieved outstanding success in academic, sports, cultural,

arts, social responsibility or other areas. Those who have overcome barriers or hardships to achieve are

also encouraged to apply.

The scholarship provides payment towards fees and costs associated with the purchase of books and

equipment required for their study or training.

Council Community Services and Facilities Group Manager Denise Kidd says the scholarships are

intended to help local young people pursue their dreams.

“The Council recognises that it benefits all of us when we encourage the outstanding young people we

have. These scholarships are not limited to academic achievements, but are open to supporting local

senior students who have achieved success in sports, culture, arts pursuits or who have represented us

well despite the obstacles in their way.”

Applicants can include a statement of support from a teacher, school coach or other person who is

relevant to their application such as a regional or national coach.

Applications close at the end of September and shortlisted applicants will be interviewed as part of the

selection process. Council will liaise directly with schools before making its final decision. Successful

applicants are expected to be announced at the end of year school prize giving awards.

To find out more about the scholarships, including application forms, students can visit selwyn.govt.nz/

tertiaryscholarships.

Community helps shape Kirwee

Reserve extension

A community-led project is helping to create an exciting new

recreation and sports hub for the Kirwee area.

Working alongside the Council, a community working party

has been gathering ideas and input from residents, sports clubs

and organisations to plan a major extension to the Kirwee

Recreation Reserve.

The project will add 6.5 hectares to the reserve, and provide space

for additional sports fields, recreation areas and community facilities.

Proposals include realigning one of the rugby fields, adding a

second junior field and providing a second dedicated cricket oval.

A new open space area will be set aside for off-leash dog exercise,

along with walkways and fitness trails, a BMX/Pump track and

informal play areas.

A central community area will be developed with seating, picnic and

barbeque areas, playground, a basketball half-court and amenities

including public toilets. Additional car parking will be included.

Council property and open space planner Derek Hayes says the

proposed extension, guided by community input, aims to provide

for both active and passive recreation, and will help meet growing

demand for sports and community space.

“The extension will be a huge asset to Kirwee, with additional

sports capacity, recreation areas and facilities that will serve the

community as a central hub now and into the future.”

Residents are invited to view the plans and provide feedback

throughout this month. A drop-in session will be held on Saturday

24 August, at the Kirwee Reserve Pavilion. Residents can view the

master plan and provide feedback at selwyn.govt.nz/kirweereserve.

Feedback on the reserve extension closes at 5pm on

Thursday 29 August.

Speed dating leads to

opportunities

· Kirwee Reserve Pavilion

· Anyone welcome

A round of employment speed dating has helped Selwyn teens with

opportunities for work.

The Council organised event at the end of June saw 29 year 12 and

13 school leavers meet with 12 employers in a speed-dating style

event, with Council staff matching up those who indicated interest

in talking further.

A month on its already opening doors for students and their parents.

McClenaghan Contracting owner Hamish McClenaghan says the

company was impressed by the calibre and motivation of the young

people and had already given one teen a week’s work experience

over the school holidays in their landscaping team.

“The team really enjoyed working with him and said he had good

aptitude. He sent us an email afterwards thanking us and he will

probably be back next holidays for us.”

They are hoping to take on two other students from the day for

experience and had made an unexpected connection with a parent

through the day, he says.

“The mother of one of the students we interviewed now works with us

two days a week. She came to talk to us and said from her daughter’s

conversation we sounded like a great place to work. Her daughter is

one we will probably try and get in over the holidays or summer, along

with another student from out Darfield way.”

Sicon Ltd has also been in touch with two students aiming to

provide them with work experience over the summer.

The Kugels play Klezmer

Malvern residents have a unique

opportunity to enjoy the unique sound of

Klezmer music on Thursday, 29 August,

when a Wellington band named The

Kugels will perform at Trinity Church

Darfield.

‘If you have experienced “Fiddler on

the Roof”, you have already had an

introduction to the culture around

Klezmer, the celebratory folk-music idiom

of the Jewish people’, explains Philip

Baldwin, Chair of the Malvern Community

Arts Council. ‘Four prominent NZ soloists

have a love for this music and play

traditional Klezmer, along with original

compositions by accordionist/NZ Arts

Laureate Ross Harris.’

The band features the highly expressive

sounds of violin, clarinet, accordion and

bass, supplemented by the multi-talented

performance of Debbie Rawson who

sometimes trades her clarinet for soprano

sax, bass clarinet, or the Maui Xaphoon.

Rounding out the band are fiddler

Robin Perkins and bass player Jaqueline

Norden.

Klezmer originally grew out of music

for Jewish celebrations, dances, and

weddings. Samples of the Klezmer

repertoire abound on Youtube.

Sponsored by NZ Arts on Tour, The

Kugels toured NZ to widespread acclaim

in 2016, and are travelling again this year,

demonstrating the huge appeal that

Klezmer has for a variety of audiences. As

part of the concert, the musicians provide

commentary which is informative,

entertaining, and engaging.

The Kugels will share their passion and

skill for this music at Trinity Church

Darfield on Thursday, 29 August at

7.00pm. Tickets — $20/adult and $10/

student — are available at the Selwyn

Gallery or at the door.

Senior A

Netball

The Ellesmere College Senior A team are attending

South Island Secondary Schools netball tournament

which is being held in Nelson, 2-5 September. The

tournament involves over 80 school teams and more

than 1200 players, coaches, managers and umpires.

Ellesmere College has competed in this event for

many years now in B grade which is the middle pool

of the competition. Previous teams have placed as

high as 4th in B grade but to be able to move up

you need to place in the top 3 of your grade. Last

year was where the magic happened, we placed

3rd overall in B grade which gained us the spot in

A grade for the 2019 SISS tournament. This is the first

time any Ellesmere team has been in A grade which

is a huge achievement on its own.

This year our team consists of young exciting

talent as well as older more experienced players

which we believe is a perfect make up of a team.

Our Captain Janaya Clark, Vice-captain Emily

Skilling, Emily Carter and Ione Dennis make up our

leadership team. These girls are about to compete

in their third SISS tournament which is something

special in itself and for Janaya and Emily this is going

to be their last. The experience and talent these

players bring to court will be so important this year

especially because we are leading such a young

team. These four are fortunate to be joined by

the exciting new talents of year 12 Merryn Wellby,

year 11's Amber lemon, Lana McCartin and Emma

Johnson and finally our year 10's Ella Gibson and

Mikayla Lemon. The inclusion of these players into

our team brings a whole new skill level and vibe to it

which we all love being a part of.

Playing in super reserve on a Wednesday allows

our team to build together and make a connects

on court weekly in the build up to the tournament.

Week to week we see the improvements in our team

as we are really starting to work together and form a

unit which has actually resulted in us beating top of

the table two weeks in a row.

This year we are also so lucky to have the return of

our amazing, knowledgeable, fun loving coach Jan

Roberts. The knowledge, passion and determination

Jan has for netball is amazing. The team are very

fortunate to have Jan as their coach again this year.

Joining Jan is Assistant coach, Anna McCormick.

Anna was a member of the Ellesmere college senior

A team for many years, captaining it in 2016 and

being involved in the SISS tournament herself. Having

someone who is experienced with the tournament

as well as being extremely knowledgeable about

netball will be a huge asset to the team. We are also

fortunate to have the return of our super manager

Susan Stewart who has been involved with this team

for numerous years. Susan does an amazing job

whether it is making sure we always have handy

towels to wipe away the sweat, continuing to fill up

the lolly bag, making sure we get to places on time,

being our tournament mum and just being there to

support us all. Maree Lemon will be accompanying

the team as their umpire. The continuous support she

shows towards our team is truly outstanding and we

are so grateful. The amount of times she has helped

us out by driving the van to and from our game as

well as being the amazing umpire she is doesn't go

unnoticed. Rounding off the support team is Sarah

Anderson; our staff rep. Sarah has a love of netball

and our team are very excited about her being able

to come with us.

Lastly, we need to say a massive thanks to our

amazing sponsors. Travelling to tournament is a huge

expense so your support is great appreciated.

High build quality for Toyota RAV4

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

IT HAS TO be said – Toyota has

really upped the ante with its new

RAV4.

I remember writing about the

interior of the previous generation

model, referencing the hard plastic

trim and low grade materials

which formed the cockpit.

That has all changed, the new

RAV4 is a quantum leap, premium

linings have been used,

soft-touch surfaces have been

included, and the layout of the

controls is comprehensive but

simplistic to understand.

All this from a model which

isn’t graded as high-specification.

This evaluation surrounds the

GXL model which still gets cloth

seat trim – yet I believe these are

the seats for Christchurch. Every

morning the RAV4 was in my

care the temperature was below

0 deg C and freezing. It was nice

to get into the relative warmth of

cloth as opposed to leather.

The 2019 RAV4 lands in eight

variants. I evaluated the rangetopping

hybrid in July, and

reported that it was the most

sensible model in the series. However,

there are petrol-only models

for those who don’t want to go

down the hybrid road. There are

three models with 2-litre engines

driving through the front wheels

only, and two 2.5-litre all-wheeldrive

variants – the GXL and

Adventure.

The GXL 4WD lands at $41,990

($48,990 Adventure), which to

me represents good buying and,

as my introduction suggested, it

is now a car which borders on the

luxury car class such is its build

quality and drive comfort.

A lot of the latter has to do with

a brand new platform, the RAV4

is totally fresh from the ground

up, and it’s something Toyota has

put a big effort into. Well, when

the car you are marketing sits

in the one of the busiest market

segments, then it has to be good

to compete.

Yes, the mid-size sport utility

market is crowded, but the RAV4

has a healthy reputation and solid

grounding.

Under the bonnet sits a revised

version of the four-cylinder

2487cc engine that has served

Toyota well for several years.

While its basic construction

hasn’t changed a lot, it has been

refined for higher power outputs

and greater efficiency. Toyota rate

it with 152kW and 243Nm, both

outputs peaky at 6600rpm and

4000-5000rpm respectively.

TOYOTA RAV4 GXL: Significant off-road capability.

That matters little, the specific to be honest, I felt it a little unnecessary,

but it’s there for when

outputs are high enough to provide

solid performance, an 8.5sec maximum performance is needed

the body does have some gravitational

movement, but it is well

arrested and handling balance is

unaffected.

Bear in mind too, the fourwheel-drive

RAV has several offroad

drive modes which provide

the model with serious off-road

potential.

As much as I enjoyed the GXL’s

traditional driveline, I’m sticking

by my comment that the hybrid

is the pick of the range and would

certainly be my choice.

Yet, I’m fully aware that RAV4

buyers want just that little point

of difference to other SUV owners

and, I guess, that’s what Toyota

was thinking of when it included

an Adventure model into the

range. It has body kits and an

interior colour contrasts which

are vivid and striking.

I’m due to evaluate it soon and

from what I’m hearing it is the

go-to model. Just as well, then,

Toyota has a RAV4 for all tastes.

Quality parts can mean safer driving

There is a plethora of motor vehicle parts

and brands available on the market yet not

all are equal. The same is true for vehicle

servicing.

Simon Wilson, owner Rolleston Diesel &

Petrols reminds that an oil change is not a

full vehicle service.

“Some people don’t realise cheaper

service centres sometimes carry out cheap

servicing jobs. What you think you’re

getting in a service may be nowhere near

what your vehicle actually receives. It

could be as brief as a 15 minute check

over, which can affect the manufacturer’s

warranty so be clear about what you want

for your vehicle,” says Simon.

Simon, Hayden and Allen at Rolleston

Diesel & Petrols are all fully qualified

automotive technicians. They are always

happy to check your vehicle where you

have a concern. When they carry out

a service they thoroughly inspect your

vehicle’s brakes, suspension and steering,

leaving you more confident about your

vehicle’s roadworthiness.

Also important is choosing quality filters

and recognised brands with a reputation

for reliability.

“Choosing quality parts goes a long way

towards safe motoring. You don’t want

someone close to you driving around in a

vehicle fitted with cheap parts which might

fail,” adds Simon.

The expression ‘you get what you pay

for’ is equally true when it comes to motor

vehicle servicing and repairs. Simon

says it is simply not worth scrimping on

cheap parts, which may not last as long or

offer the same level of confidence for safe

motoring.

Regular servicing carried out by

competent specialist automotive repairers

is a must for all types of vehicles from

older to new models. If this is carried

out every 5,000-10,000 kilometres, it will

help extend the life of a vehicle and go a

long way towards hassle-free motoring. In

wintertime, a vehicle’s battery is also under

more strain and the windscreen wipers

generally operate more so these should be

checked too.

Rolleston Diesel & Petrols has a fully

equipped modern workshop, fitted with

sophisticated diagnostic equipment.

They service and repair personal and

commercial vehicles, from cars, utes, and

4WDs, through to vans, light commercials

(up to 12 tons), motorhomes, buses

or motorcycles, jet skis, boats, ride-on

lawnmowers and even horse floats.

Simon insists on using only original

manufactured equipment parts, reliable

quality components and high quality

lubricants, and they do not skimp when it

comes to a vehicle’s service.

As well as being accredited to carry out

warrant of fitness checks, Rolleston Diesel

& Petrols is a member

of the Motor Trade

Association.

This is a locally owned

and operated business,

employing local people

and supporting its local

community.

West Melton Country Fete

In April the West Melton Country Fete was attended by over 5000 people from across the district.

The Fete hosted two international food courts, over 100 stalls, a large kids entertainment area

and all of the great fun you’d expect at a local fete like ‘dunk the teacher’ and a petting zoo.

Run by the Friends of West Melton

School (FoWMS) the Fete was generously

supported by a number of local companies,

of note were Gold Sponsors McLenaghan

Contracting, Ray White West Melton

and Your Section / Wilfield. Through this

amazing support and a lot of hard work

FoWMS were able to raise a massive $40,000

they could use towards school upgrades not

funded by the Ministry of Education.

During the July school holidays two

outdoor areas were upgraded, the first

project created an outdoor classroom space

with decking and seating outside the Ti

Kouka Block. The work was undertaken by

Chris Fifield Building Ltd – a local builder

whose three children attend the school.

The second project was an extension of

the playground area previously built using

funds from the 2017 Fete. This extension

includes a slide, tussock garden and wooden

amphitheatre that can be used as an outdoor

learning space.

This project was undertaken by local

company McLenaghan Contracting who

have supported the school in numerous

ways for over 30 years. Andy and Carol

who founded the company in 1989, sent

all four of their children Jeremy, Hamish,

Simon, and Kylie to West Melton School.

Now Kylie’s daughter Amelia has joined the

school – her first day at the start of Term 3

this year.

Both contractors went above and beyond

expectations, using their skills and resources

to make the outcomes more incredible than

imagined. FoWMS wish to thank everyone

who attended or sponsored the Fete and

look forward to seeing the community use

these new spaces for years to come.

Seeing stars at West

Melton’s observatory

Stargazing has been a fascination for

humans since time began. For centuries,

stars guided sailors to their destination,

and they were also used to create early

calendars. But it wasn’t until the early 17th

century, with the invention of the telescope

by Dutchman Hans Lippershey, that stars

could be observed more closely than just

with the naked eye.

As telescopes improved, astronomers

were able to explore further into the

depths of space, until today, when highly

sophisticated telescopes allow us to see

not just the Milky Way, but many more of

the billions of galaxies that make up the

Universe.

For local stargazers, the Canterbury

Astronomical Society’s RF Joyce

Observatory in West Melton offers the

opportunity to observe the wonders of

the night sky every Friday night from the

end of April through to mid-September.

The observatory is equipped with five

fixed telescopes and a number of portable

telescopes, and the dark site has the benefit

of minimal light pollution, which is

supported by the Selwyn District Council’s

light pollution control policy.

Doors open at 7.30pm and the

evening starts with a brief talk about the

observatory and its history, followed by a

description of what people are likely to see

that night, and a health and safety briefing.

“We usually get 80 to 90 people coming

each time,” says CAS membership

secretary Simon Lewis. “Tickets can

be purchased through the Eventbrite

website.”

The Canterbury Astronomical Society

(CAS) is a charitable organisation and

funds raised through these evenings are

used to run the observatory.

CAS has a strong relationship with

Canterbury University and organises

lectures on the third Tuesday of the month

at the university.

“These are free and open to the public

and cover a range of academic and

scientific topics,” Simon says.

The society also has a relationship with

NASA, which brings its Stratospheric

Observatory for Infrared Astronomy,

SOFIA, a Boeing 747 aircraft, to

Christchurch every year to observe celestial

bodies in the Southern hemisphere. During

its stay, the public have the opportunity to

go on board and see the infrared camera

and other equipment.

CAS welcomes new members and

offers a range of activities including

an education programme, monthly

members’nights and social events. For

Leggett says. “It is really great that people

are supporting not just us, but all the

shops in West Melton”.

Having a close relationship with the

Doctors next door is really important. It

allows effective communication if any

issues arise that may impact the patient.

The team at the Pharmacy can nip in

to talk to the Doctors if there are any

questions, and they regularly talk to run

ideas past each other and to clarify any

queries that come up.

The Pharmacy is also pleased to have

Pharmacy Technician Aarzou Turkmani

join the team. She has worked at several

Pharmacies in Christchurch. She currently

works at West Melton, and also during the

week at Templeton and Aranui.

At this time of year, getting through the

colder winter months may seem like

the only thing on people’s minds, but

keeping well can mean lots of things for

different people. “We have already seen

a few people in suffering from allergies,

and I’ve noticed on my car a thin film of

pollen” Chris says. The pharmacy always

has a wide range of products designed

to help in all four seasons, as well as a

large gift range to suit different tastes

and budgets. Jo has ordered in a large

exciting range of gifts leading into

Christmas, and this will start to arrive

soon. Be quick, they usually fly out the

door

The team at West Melton are experts in

not only your Pharmacy needs, but also

can help you with sending parcels over

Gardening

Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi

SELWYN TIMES

Time to plan your vegetable garden

AUGUST IS possibly one of

the most difficult months in the

home garden – the weather is still

very cold with blustery winds and

soils are very wet.

However, it’s an ideal time for

completing planting of deciduous

ornamental and fruit trees, and

on a positive note, plan your new

vegetable garden.

Vegetable garden

Continue harvesting winter

maturing vegetables and where

soil conditions allow i.e. not too

wet and the tilth (texture of the

soil) is friable (easily crumbled),

you can sow seeds of beetroot,

carrots, onion, peas, radish and

spinach.

Start cultivating soil in preparation

for early spring plantings

by ‘chopping up’ and digging in

green manure crops you sowed

in early autumn such as lupins, to

improve the organic matter.

Raise the level of new vegetable

gardens 100-120mm above the

existing ground level as drainage

will be improved and soil temperatures

will rise quicker in early

spring.

Flowering annuals

Winter flowering annuals

should still be blooming beautifully,

especially cineraria’s that

are at their best in late winter/

early spring. Where new plantings

are required, plant ‘potted’

colour. Try alyssum, calendulas,

cornflowers, larkspur, lobelia,

pansies, snapdragons, stock and

wallflowers.

Fruit trees

It’s cropping time for many

citrus, mandarins, lemons, limes,

navel oranges and grapefruit.

Seminole tangelos that appear

ripe on trees are not sweet

enough to eat until October/November.

Pip and stone fruit trees benefit

from a final copper oxychloride

spray so they are in a healthy state

for the new growing season. Remove

all pruning’s and old leaves

from the home orchard.

Feijoas can now be pruned

as they often flower early in

spring, and thin out thick tangelo

growth to allow light to penetrate

through the plant, increasing fruit

production.

Strawberries

Have already commenced

actual growth, remove all old and

diseased leaves. In warmer areas,

flowers will appear very early. Ideally,

remove all flowers at least for

JUICY: If your

garden has

citrus, now is

the time to crop

back the fruit.

another month as they will not

form edible, healthy strawberries

until well into spring.

Roses

While the plants are dormant

apply a copper oxychloride and/

or horticultural oil spray to

‘clean up’ any overwatering pests

or diseases. Be meticulous in

removing all old leaves and pruning’s

which should be burned or

disposed of off the property. Add

compost around existing plants to

greatly benefit spring growth next

month. Apply fertiliser around

late September/early October.

Lawns

In most parts of New Zealand,

there is little significant grass

growth in August, however, it is

just around the corner. Use this

time to deal with problem areas

in the lawn where it is not too

wet. Installing drainage coil in

wet parts of a lawn can make a

significant difference for next

winter.

Ornamental trees and

shrubs

Site preparation is critical

before planting. Do not plant in

areas that are extremely wet unless

you are planting specimens

that specifically grow in wet soils

e.g. swamp cypress, kahikatea.

Add compost to all planting sites

and cultivate thoroughly prior to

planting. Allow sufficient space

between new trees and shrubs for

their full development.

Container gardens

With careful planting and planning,

containers should continue

to provide colour and interest

throughout August. Replant

where necessary with ‘potted

colour’. Before planting new flowering

annuals in spring, empty

the containers, thoroughly check

that drainage holes are adequate,

clean carefully and fill with new

container mix.

Urszula was the standout agent of the three

I met when considering selling my home.

That said, she impressed me much more than

I was expecting during the campaign, often doing so

much more to assist me than I asked. There was

never a point at which I felt pressured into changing my

expectations and never had the impression that Urszula

was commission focused or looking for a quick sale. In

short, I believe Urszula had my best interests at heart and

I guarantee that when I next come to selling or buying a

home there will be no other agent

I’ll consider. When you have tried the best,

why employ the rest!

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Identifying the square metre rate

17

The square metre rate (sqm) is the

average cost of building each square metre

of a house; calculated by dividing the total

build price by the home’s total square

metres.

Sqm rates are not standard across

all parts of a house with building costs

varying between rooms. Garages cost

considerably less than utility rooms like

kitchens, bathrooms, and laundries so

choosing high quality appliances and more

features can ratchet up the build price.

The cladding chosen is also relevant. A

quoted sqm figure is likely based on brick

veneer, the cheapest form of cladding,

followed by plaster finish then cedar.

Building a smaller house does not

necessarily translate to a lower sqm rate.

Certain costs are incurred regardless of the

size of home. You still need an electrical

switchboard and the same number of

building inspections. The cost of drainage,

hot water cylinder, garage door, and

telephone and electricity connections will

not differ significantly between larger and

smaller houses. Building consent fees do

vary with the size of house.

Sqm figures are therefore guides,

influenced by the features specified and

type of build. The standard sqm figure

quoted by a building company is generally

based on construction of a standard

house on a fully serviced section, on good

ground.

Ground conditions determine the

type and cost of foundations. If building

on TC1 land the foundations are more

affordable than on TC3 land. Ease of

connection of services like electricity and

the internet are also a factor. For example,

the distance from house to roadside is

usually further on a lifestyle property.

When a housing company quotes a

square metre rate, it will likely refer to

building the actual house, not external

landscaping or other features.

Some building companies offer turnkey

packages where the build price

incorporates an allowance for fences,

driveways, paths, letterbox, some soft

landscaping, and maybe a clothesline. You

will want to ascertain what you will get for

your money.

A building company’s lowest sqm

rate is likely (though not always) based

on a standard stud and internal door

height, and flat ceilings. Deviations like

opting for over height doors or higher

ceilings are usually extras with the build

price increasing. Be aware of sales patter

encouraging adding non-essential features

you may not really want, and which might

exceed your budget.

The features incorporated into a new

home impact on the sqm build price, a

figure which can range from $1,600 per

sqm for a standard house to over $3,000

per sqm for an architecturally designed

home.

When visiting show homes, determine

each company’s sqm rate and add-on

features incorporated, for the home on

view. Ask what is standard for each level

within their range of builds. The figures

will vary substantially between homes and

companies. Gather plenty of information

REA - How property buyers

can spot a healthy home

Purchasing a house that’s warm and dry is a

priority for many property hunters, but how

can buyers identify a ‘healthy’ home?

Real Estate Authority (REA) chief executive

Kevin Lampen-Smith says there are a

handful of key traits to watch out for.

“A house that’s hard to heat can make you

sick and miserable. In many cases, the key is

good insulation,” Lampen-Smith says.

The World Health Organisation recommends

a minimum of 18 degrees in our

homes. Insulation is

often the most practical

and cost-effective way

to make a house more

energy efficient. An insulated

home is warmer

in winter and cooler

in summer, which can

provide health benefits

like reducing mould and

damp.

“Ask the agent or seller

if the property is insulated,

the type of insulation

used and when it was installed. Ask your

building inspector to check the state of the

insulation,” Lampen-Smith suggests.

Lampen-Smith explains insulation should

be replaced or topped up if it’s less than

12cm thick, doesn’t cover the whole ceiling,

has become wet or damp, or been damaged

by rodents or birds.

“If a property you’re looking at isn’t insulated,

it’s a good idea to budget for the cost

of doing the work, as your health (and your

wallet) will thank you in the long term.”

There’s support available for some buyers,

such as a Warmer Kiwi Homes insulation

grant. Some local councils also allow property

owner to add the cost of insulation to their

rates and pay this back over time.

When working to identify a healthy home,

Lampen-Smith says it’s important to watch

out for dampness. Signs of dampness include

musty smells, damp or mouldy wardrobe

contents, mould forming behind paintings

or furniture, or mould or watermarks on

ceilings or walls.

“Condensation on windows, especially in

bedrooms, isn’t necessarily a sign of excessive

dampness if it only happens occasionally

during winter,” Lampen-Smith explains.

Ideally, the house will

have extractor fans in

the bathroom, kitchen

and laundry that are

vented outside. Fans

should not be vented

into the roof space.

Good curtains can

also help a house retain

warmth.

“It’s important to

note that curtains aren’t

necessarily included in

the sale of the house, so

ask about this and if the answer is yes, ensure

they’re included in the list of chattels in

the sale and purchase agreement,” Lampen-Smith

says.

According to EECA, good curtains should

be floor-length and fit tightly against the wall

or window frame. Sill-length curtains are

ineffective. Curtains should be wider than

the window frame and preferably be double

layered with a thick lining. If the property

has ineffective curtains, or does not come

with curtains, buyers should factor this cost

into their budget.
