Homeowners battle

over damage to houses

• By Jess Gibson

THREE homeowners in

Heathcote Valley say their

properties have been damaged

by earthworks being carried out

as part of a multi-million dollar

wastewater project.

But contractor Fulton Hogan is

“satisfied” it is not its fault.

It has been four months

since residents on Scruttons

Rd first reported experiencing

“torturous” effects during

phase four of the city council’s

Lyttelton Harbour wastewater

scheme.

Constant noise, dust, potholes,

muddy roads and intense

ground-shaking were among the

negative impacts endured while

Fulton Hogan worked to install a

pipeline at a cost of $8.3 million.

Now residents are frustrated

over damage to their homes

which they claim did not exist

before the project began.

Homeowner Sirwan Khalandi

lives closest to where the work

was carried out, he is waiting

on engineers to be sent out

by Fulton Hogan to examine

damage to the floor in his

kitchen and lounge.

It will be the second time his

property has been assessed by

the company after being told

from the editor’s desk

HOMEOWNERS in Heathcote Valley have

a real battle ahead, I suspect.

On page 1 today we revisit Scruttons Rd

where residents say work on the huge waste

water project is damaging their houses.

Fulton Hogan, which is putting in the

pipeline, says that is not the case.

Sirwan Khalandi’s house is closest to where the work has been

carried out and is waiting for Fulton Hogan engineers to come

back again to inspect damage.

He was told after the first inspection the damage was

unrelated to the project and that it should be dealt with by his

insurers.

“I got pretty sh***y at that point,” he says.

That’s probably an understatement. If there are no

agreements, the language will be getting a lot hotter.

Tug needs grant for WOF

• By Jess Gibson

GETTING tug Lyttleton back

on the water this summer could

hang on a heritage grant.

THe city council’s social,

community development and

housing committee will meet

on September 4 to consider

approving

a $36,806

heritage

incentive

grant to the

Tug Lyttelton

Preservation

Society.

THe society

Mike Bruce

needs to raise

$83,240 to

pay for a warrant of fitness on

the vessel which will allow it to

carry passengers.

Preservation society head

stoker Mike Bruce said about

half the money has already

been raised. The fundraiser

was boosted by $10,000 last

week from the city council’s

metropolitan discretionary

response fund.

THe society has until mid-

September to secure the funding

so the survey, known as a

warrant of fitness can be carried

out on the 112-year-old vessel.

If the society doesn’t meet the

deadline, the vessel carrying

passengers will be delayed for

another season.

THe assessment requires the

vessel to be taken out of the

water for repairs and inspection

to ensure it is safe – the latest it

can be done is the end of next

month.

THe tug was issued its

certificate of survey in

April, which is a subset of

requirements for the passenger

service licence.

However, it was completed

too late and caused the society

to struggle financially because

it hasn’t carried passengers in

three years.

Said Mr Bruce: “All these years

of hand-to-mouth and going

from grant-to-grant has been

extremely trying, but once we

are able to get out and sail and

get some money in, things will

DRY DOCK:

The Tug

Lyttelton

Preservation

Society is

complete

a safety

assessment.

SLOAN

be a whole lot better.”

In spite of the time pressure,

Mr Bruce is positive the society

will achieve its goal.

“Once the survey is done we

will start our marketing and get

as many bums on seats as we

can,” he said.

•If you wish to donate

to the Tug Lyttelton

Preservation Society, phone

Mr Bruce on 022 540 1251

In Brief

WORK ON SEWERS

Sewer mains will be renewed

on several streets adjacent to St

Leonards Park, Sumner. Work

on Duncan, Denman, Campbell

and Whitfield Sts and St Leonards

Square is set to start next week

and will continue until January.

During this period, there will be a

reduction of on-street parking.

GRANT DECISION

The city council will decide

tomorrow whether it will approve

a $48,880 grant towards the Mt

Pleasant Memorial Community

Centre and Residents Association.

The grant will go towards year one

of the association’s community

activator initiative, which will see

a contractor employed to help

with funding, social enterprise

opportunities, staffing needs and

more.

CONSENT FEEDBACK

The public can have its say on

whether Lyttelton Port Company

should get consent for land use

at Te Awaparahi Bay. The city

council is seeking feedback on

an application submitted by LPC

to enable the establishment and

operation of a container terminal

and other port activities at Godley

Quay and Cashin Quay. If you

Crime cameras meeting

• By Jess Gibson

A MEETING will be held with

police and city council staff on

Tuesday to clarify issues over

Sumner’s crime prevention

cameras.

There has been ongoing

confusion over information

from police as to who can

fund the $20,000 cameras, as

community-funded equipment

is not an option.

City council head of

community support,

governance and partnerships

John Filsell said the meeting

will address the “resourcing,

provision and operation of

crime prevention cameras.”

Following this, a briefing with

the Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board will be arranged

to provide it with the

information needed to inform

decision-making going forward.

Security company October

Protection chief executive and

Sumner resident Matt Wood

was ready to supply Safer Sumner

with security cameras in

2018 after they raised $4000.

However, he had to approach

the community board for funding

after the cost of the cameras

skyrocketed to $20,000 when

police requested they be aligned

with its system.

However, a report requesting

CAMERAS:

Darrell

Latham

hopes for

a positive

outcome.

funding for the cameras was

removed from the community

board agenda in July at the last

minute by city council staff.

•HAVE YOUR SAY: What

do you think about the

process to get crime

prevention cameras in

Sumner? Email your views

to jess.gibson@starmedia.

kiwi

Board members were meant

to decide on a recommendation

to decline all funding towards

cameras which would help to

prevent crime in Sumner. The

amount requested by Safer

Sumner was $16,187.

However, the application was

withdrawn due to confusion

over how Safer Sumner was expected

to meet the discretionary

response fund criteria.

Said community board member

Darrell Latham, who has

been pushing for the cameras:

“Safer Sumner and the community

have been proactive in

wanting to discourage crime

and have worked hard at raising

funds towards the installation

of the crime cameras. However,

it has been very difficult

for them to progress matters

through no fault of their own.

“I was disappointed that

the item was pulled from the

agenda at an earlier meeting.

There has been too much

confusion over this matter

and it is to be hoped that

proposed meetings between

city council staff and the police

will result in a positive outcome

with a recommendation to the

board.’’

Akaroa apartment block takes

action over bus parking

• By Jess Gibson

COMPLAINTS about noisy

buses outside an Akaroa

apartment block continue to fall

on deaf ears.

The Bruce Waterfront

Apartments body

corporate initially

threatened legal action

against the city council

over the number of

buses gathering outside

the apartments on Beach

Rd during the cruise

ship season. But the city

council said at the time

it had no concerns over

the placement of the

buses.

Now a letter has been sent

to the city council and Banks

Peninsula Community Board

by the body corporate’s lawyer

Prudence Steven.

The letter outlines issues with

the buses, including noise, visual

impact and diesel fumes, and

requests information on the

legality of parking them there

without consultation with the

affected residents.

It also requests body corporate

representatives be given the

opportunity to consult with

the city council or

community board

members over parking

activities before the

commencement of the

cruise ship season.

Ms Steven said she is

now waiting to hear back

from the city council.

It is not the first run-in

the body corporate has

had with the city council.

It also threatened to

take legal action after the city

council failed to gain resource

consent for the placement of

portacom toilets on Britomart

Reserve near the apartments.

However, the toilets were

removed after the cruise ship

season ended.

Saving the peninsula’s native forest

FORTY-TWO hectares of the

native forest which covers Banks

Peninsula has been protected,

and will remain so thanks to a

conservation covenant.

Farmers and landowners Brent

and Anna Fisher bought the land

containing the forest at Ataahua

seven years ago to expand their

farming operation.

Now with support from the

Banks Peninsula Conservation

Trust, and funding from

the World Wildlife Fund,

Environment Canterbury

and the city council, they have

fully fenced and protected a

piece of the region’s natural

history.

Only about one per cent of

the original forest area which

covered Banks Peninsula

remains, supporting a wealth of

plant and animal biodiversity.

“We were always aware of

the bush and it’s beautiful,” Mr

Fisher said.

“The previous owner had

an ecological survey done by

botanist Hugh Wilson and

there’s a tōtara in there that

apparently could be the biggest

tōtara tree on Banks Peninsula.”

When the Fishers bought the

land, the bush block, tucked in

the hills between Kaituna and

McQueens valleys, was unfenced

and stock could wander in.

It would damage vegetation,

disturb the waterway and

sometimes be a challenge to

muster.

They approached the Banks

Peninsula Conservation Trust

for help fencing the important

remnant off and a conservation

covenant in perpetuity has

been placed over the land, now

known as Sally’s Bay, so it will

be preserved and protected for

all time.

Resene cardholder special!

The trust managed the

process, securing funding,

contracting fencers, engaging

land and ecological surveyors

and providing the necessary

legal support.

“We always wanted to do it but

the two biggest constraints on

farmers are time and money and

to have someone come in and

organise it, that was the beauty

of it,” Mrs Fisher said.

PLANT

WEALTH:

Farmers

Brent and

Anna Fisher

have fully

fenced and

protected a

piece of Banks

Peninsula’s

native forest.

Trust covenants officer

Marie Neal said the block

contains extraordinary original

remnant forest and expansive

regenerating second-growth

bush, with gorse acting as a

nurse crop on the margins for

native seedling to flourish under.

The Sally’s Bay block gives a

clue to what Banks Peninsula

was like before early settlers

cleared the land.

Step towards

lowering speed

limits in Sumner

• By Jess Gibson

SAFER SPEEDS in Sumner may

be just around the corner.

The Linwood-Central-

Heathcote Community

Board unanimously passed a

recommendation on Wednesday

to approve slower speed limits in

Sumner.

A 30km/h zone has been

endorsed on the Esplanade, Head

St, Menzies St, Hardwicke St,

Stoke St, Burgess St and Marriner

St and part of Nayland St. A

40km/h zone has been endorsed

for part of Nayland St, Wiggins

St, Dryden St, Colenso St, Arnold

St, Denman St, Duncan St, Druro

St, Paisley St and Stoke St, among

others.

However, the community board

has not recommended lowering

the speed on Wakefield Ave

outside a commercial area based

on submissions and staff advice.

The community board has

asked for further advice on the

speed limits for Scarborough Rd

and Taylors Mistake Rd, as well

as pedestrian safety options for

Wakefield Ave.

The city council will now

make a decision on whether to

approve the community board’s

recommendations at its meeting

on September 12.

VITTORIA

& Matt

Food, family and words

I WAS WRONG last week, so I’d

best correct myself.

The church in Laura’s home

village of Pravisdomini is about

1000 years old, rather than 600,

and was built some time after

Attila the Hun and his band of

merry men “toured” an ageing

Roman Empire.

Apparently there’s also a whole

mess of the bones of Vittoria’s

ancestors a metre or so under the

church lawn too.

Vittoria’s been living the high

life this last week.

After recovering from the side

effects of antibiotics, she’s been

accompanying us on a fairly busy

circuit of friends, family, nearby

towns and villages.

She’s been cuddled near to

death by the older rellies, having

a blast with the younger family

members and running amok with

the kids of our friends who are of

a similar age.

The exercise is key with an appetite

like hers. We always knew

Vittoria was a good wee eater, but

she’s honestly eating almost as

much as us adults.

It’s so great to see after she

was off her food the first week,

however, I doubt any of us will be

coming back any lighter.

The big meals have been put to

good use in fuelling an increase

in Vittoria’s communication

skills.

She has definitively mastered

the word “this” and can now ask

you to “do this” or ask “what’s

this?” accompanied by furious

pointing. She’s also begun playing

with the words “rubbish” and

“finished”, although I’m still not

sure she’s got it yet. It just kind of

sounds like “ish” either way.

And it’s not just output that I’ve

noticed. With Italian (or the local

brand Venetian spoken by most

of Laura’s relatives) surrounding

her almost all day, every day, Vittoria

can now understand a few

PLAYMATES: As Sunday

lunch at a friend’s house

stretches into dinnertime,

Vittoria takes a ride while

her wee mate Edoardo

steers.

phrases and respond accordingly.

I mean respond physically –

like she’ll probably wander over

if you ask her to in Italian – not

verbally.

She’s also starting to get into

the Italian childrens’ time frame,

which I’m not sure is exactly

ideal.

Up at 6.30am, a leisurely postlunch

nap at 2pm-ish and then

pushing the boundaries until almost

10pm if she can get away with it.

While I’m excited to try and

keep using as much Italian as

possible when we return home,

I think I might see about leaving

the timetable behind.

•Former Bay Harbour News

journalist Matt Salmons has

become a stay-at-home dad.

We follow his journey weekly.

Readers respond to last

week’s article which

showed what Collett’s

Corner in Lyttelton will look

like when it opens in 2022

Felicite Jardine – I am

totally opposed to this design

and structure. It is totally out of

keeping with the current character

of the township.

Lyttelton does not need this

kind of space or building. Smaller

quirkier space works better for

attracting people to come and

spend time here in my opinion.

Margaret Pool – This design

is disgusting, it has no village

look or feel about it what so ever.

As a resident for over 50 years I

think it is an insult to the local

people that truly call Lyttelton

home.

Toni Jones – How disappointing

to see a building which

mimics the more loathsome

aspects of the botch-up that’s the

Christchurch rebuild.

With the exception of Strange’s

building, the stacky boxes with

little lanes – High St is it? – the

renovations of some heritage

buildings and, originally postquake,

the Re:start, we’re lumbered

with monstrosities which

look inept and clumsy.

The Hoyts building, those

awful flats on the corner of

Brougham and Colombo Sts,

everything looks temporary and

cheap, as if they’re covered in a

job lot of bathroom tiles.

Now, as well as Lyttelton

Primary, which just needs a few

litres of orange paint to make it

look like Mitre 10, we have a proposal

for another cheap-looking

building on a prime site in the

port.

Now the city council seems to

be, in its cloth-eyed way, forcing

what looked as though it might

be something interesting into a

boring piece of nothing, which in

20-30 years time will look even

cheaper and nastier.

Why is there this passion for

attaching bits of tat onto everything

that’s replacing what used

Why do we have to put up with

flimsy-looking rubbish covered

in cheap looking insubstantial

decoration?

Bet it’s not cheap, sure as hell

looks cheap.

Dianna Garrett – I have

some familiarity with the original

design competition and have

to say it is extremely disappointing

to see how different from

the original winning scheme

the redesign is. Warren and Mahoney

appear to have taken over

the original young architectural

team’s fresh, innovative project

and made it blandly corporate.

The competition entrants,

not just the winning scheme,

made huge efforts to present

unique and original designs that

related to context and I feel if the

current scheme was presented it

would not have won.

I think the other entrants, and

the people of Lyttelton, would be

similarly disappointed.

Trees to stabilise slopes

HELICOPTERS WILL drop

thousands of plants onto the

steep slopes above Sumner Rd.

The final stages of a planting

project to transform the stretch

between Evans Pass Rd and Lyttelton

gets under way this week.

Several thousand plants have

already been planted on the

slopes above the reconstructed

road that links Sumner and Lyttelton,

but another 15,000 still

need to go in.

Some of those 15,000 plants

will go in over the next few

weeks. The remainder will be

planted in May and June next

year when nursery stocks have

replenished.

Several tonnes of plants – a

mix of native shrubs, trees, flaxes

and tussocks – are being airlifted

onto the slopes because the terrain

where they will be planted

is too steep to be accessed by

vehicles.

“Teams will go in by foot to

plant the plants. They’ll be digging

in tricky terrain among the

Crater Rim Bluffs above Sumner

Rd and using rope access in some

areas. Their experience of the site,

and techniques during previous

work will be invaluable in managing

the risks of this challenging

job,’’ said city council senior

project manager Peter Bawden.

STABILISATION: A massive planting effort is set to transform

the slopes above Sumner Rd.

The plants will help to stabilise

the slopes above Sumner Rd as

well as mitigate the impacts of

the geotechnical work done to

reduce the risk of rocks falling

onto the road.

Sumner Rd was badly damaged

when tonnes of rock from the

surrounding cliffs came tumbling

down onto it in the February 22,

2011, earthquake.

It took two and a half years to

rebuild the road, but before the

reconstruction work could begin,

the city council and the NZ

Transport Agency had to address

the risk of further rocks falls.

Contractors blasted about

100,000 cu m of rock from the

cliffs above the road. They also

built a 407m catch bench to intercept

falling rocks and a 50m x 7m

rock interception bund.

“The planting work will go

some way towards restoring the

ecological balance in the area and

represents the final stage of this

massive project,’’ Mr Bawden said

Landscaping set to start

on Heathcote River banks

• By Claire Booker

HEATHCOTE River

landscaping is set to begin next

month after completion of

dredging along Opawa Rd and

Radley St.

Sediment removal along this

section of the river is about

half-way complete, and work

will continue for the next two

months.

The work on this section of

the river will be done four days a

week and sediment curtains and

other in-river controls will not

be used.

This is to reduce the duration

of work and overall impacts on

migrating fish.

Linwood Ward city councillor

Yani Johanson said he is pleased

to see this work taking place.

“It has been neglected for a

long time and current maintenance

has left a lot to be desired.

Coupled with the dredging to

alleviate some of the flooding

risks, putting in some decent

landscaping that can be better

maintained is great improvement

for the better which I

welcome,” Cr Johanson said.

The dredging has been carried

out with an amphibious excavator.

The landscaping that is

planned for next month will

start with native shrubs and

trees to replace the greenery

which was removed due to poor

health.

About one-third of the trees

and shrubbery will be planted

this year, and the remainder

will be completed in the coming

years to spread the impact on

river wildlife.

The next sections of work on

the river (stages three and four)

between Beckford and Wilsons

Rds is planned for later this year,

through to 2020.

Work in these areas will mainly

be sediment removal, bank

stabilisation and replanting.

In some areas, the city council

plans to remove a small number

of trees that are in poor condition

to allow for bank regrading

and stabilisation.

The city council will work

with river care groups and

schools in the area to involve the

community in the replanting

stage of the project.

Trees which are removed will

be replaced in future landscaping

plans.

THe landscape plans can be

viewed at the drop-in session at

the Opawa Community Church

on September 3.
