Selling your car? Don’t park it on the street

MARKETING: Parking a vehicle on the road with a ‘for sale’ sign like this one in Lincoln will be banned completely under a new

traffic and parking bylaw. ​

• By Devon Bolger

ROADSIDE advertising of

vehicles for sale could become

illegal under a new traffic and

parking bylaw.

The district council

undertook a review of the

current bylaw and it has led

to a number of proposed

changes.

One of the amendments

would see people no longer able

to park their vehicle on the side

of the road if it is displaying a

‘for sale’ sign,

In the current traffic and

parking bylaw from 2009 you

can do so with the consent of

the district council.

A district council spokesman

said it will enforce it by

contacting people directly

when it becomes aware of cases

and inform them of the law.

Residents

evenly

divided

over paying

for stadium

• By Devon Bolger

RESIDENTS APPEAR split

over whether ratepayers in

Selwyn should help to fund

Christchurch’s new stadium.

Selwyn Times conducted a poll

of residents across the district to

get their views on the idea.

The views were split with 48 per

cent saying they’d be happy to

help pay for the stadium and 52

per cent saying they are against

the idea.

Mayor Sam Broughton and his

only challenger for the mayoralty

Bill Woods were also asked for

their views.

Mr Broughton said he did not

have enough information to make

a decision as he had not been

given information over what it

might cost Selwyn ratepayers.

Last year, Mr Broughton said

Selwyn should help to fund the

stadium. But in May this year he

changed his mind and told Selwyn

Times that ratepayers in the district

should not contribute.

Mr Woods said he would find

it very hard to present a rational

case to ratepayers on the benefits

of contributing to the stadium

because of its location.

get in touch

from the editor’s desk

REPORTER DEVON Bolger did a tour

of the district to get a feeling for whether

people want to contribute to paying for the

new stadium in Christchurch.

The result was interesting: People are

fairly evenly split over whether ratepayers

from Selwyn and other districts should help Christchurch city

out.

Those who wouldn’t use the stadium were fairly much in the

‘no’ camp; rugby fans and concert-goers said ‘yes’.

But an interesting viewpoint did come out. Some said

travelling into Christchurch was a hassle for anything, and

going to a sports match or concert was no longer that attractive.

That mentality augurs well for the district: If people stay close

to home it can only be good for the Selwyn economy.

No new quarry consent

for Fulton Hogan after plan changes

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

FULTON HOGAN will not

have to apply for a new resource

consent to quarry near Weedons

– in spite of the raft of changes

made to its application.

The three-person hearings

panel, chaired by Rob van

Voorhuysen, has decided the

changes made to the company’s

original application do not

require a

new resource

consent.

Environment

Canterbury

and the district

council called

for public

Simon Moore

submissions

on whether

the application

should be a new process due

to the changes, but these were

required to be authored by legal

counsel.

The councils called for them

after Fulton Hogan made

changes to its application, which

included:

•Decreasing the total active

open area of the quarry from

40ha to a maximum of 26ha.

•Originally the application

heavy vehicle movements per

day with an average of 1050

Hogan now wishes to amend the

proposal to a daily limit of 800

•Fulton Hogan initially

intended to develop a new

dedicated heavy vehicle access

from Jones Rd and use the

existing access off the road as

a dedicated light vehicle access

to the site. Instead it wants

to provide a “shared” heavy

His biggest concern is

not giving submitters the

opportunity to amend their

written submissions to reflect

the changes Fulton Hogan has

made.

On behalf of Fulton Hogan,

a lawyer has since said the

company would not be opposed

to submitters who did not

want to initially be heard at the

hearing to now be heard.

The hearing on the company’s

proposal to open a 170ha quarry

between Dawsons, Curraghs,

Jones and Maddisons Rd will be

held in November.

The only submission made on

treating the resource consent

as a new process was from legal

counsel on behalf of Fulton

Hogan.

It said: “The proposed change

in sequencing and staging of

the application does not change

the scale or intensity of the

proposed activity.”

ECan and the district council’s

legal counsel had a similar view,

saying the changes will “actually

reduce the intensity or impact of

the anticipated effects.”

Residents upset with

lack of action over sealing Wards Rd

• By Devon Bolger

A 17-YEAR battle between

rural Darfield residents and the

district council over sealing a

shingle road will continue.

Since 2002 Grant Prescott and

fellow Wards Rd residents have

been pushing to have the road

sealed between Charing Cross

and Greendale Rd.

He says they have had enough

of potholes and feeble repairs.

Mr Prescott made a submission

to the district council at

a recent meeting and said he

has been left feeling extremely

disappointed by the response he

received.

“There wasn’t much of a

resolution except the mayor

suggested that maybe the work

could be put in the Long Term

Plan.

“It just felt like a pat on the

back to say go away and we’ll

think about it in a few years.”

District council Infrastructure

group manager Murray

Washington said they have

requested a report on the

maintenance of Wards Rd to

be presented at the next district

council meeting in October and

any future decisions on the road

will be taken on the basis of that

report.

In his submission, Mr Prescott

told councillors that he is

concerned about the district

council’s lack of action.

“Instead of wasting hundreds

of thousands of dollars

constantly patching up a road

used by heavy vehicles, farm

vehicles and commuters it is

time you took responsibility for

the safety of all road users and

upgraded this section as soon as

possible.

“It is only a matter of time

before a road user loses their life

and this council will be held to

account,” he said.

Mr Prescott said the residents

HUNTER

won’t give up on getting the road

sealed.

“There are 14 residents living

there and we are all committed

that it’s something that needs to

be done.

“All of us feel that the council

is doing what is easiest for them

and not what is best for the

community.”

Recycling station

in the works

for Castle Hill

• By Devon Bolger

CASTLE HILL is set to get a

permanent recycling station.

The station is due to be

completed in April or May next

year.

District council solid waste

manager Andrew Boyd said

the permanent refuse and

recycling drop-off point will take

over from the current temporary

one.

He said a budget is still to be

allocated for the project.

“We are in negotiations over

the cost of the land with the

landowner and the development

of the site so are unable to

confirm this at this stage.”

Last month Selwyn

Times reported the amount of

rubbish going to landfill in the

district has jumped by almost 50

per cent in seven years.

The increase prompted the

district council to adopt a new

plan to deal with the waste being

produced.

The total amount of rubbish

going to landfill jumped from

12,506 tonnes in 2012 to 18,646

tonnes in 2018.

Feedback on

bylaw sought

•From page 1

He said people are generally

compliant but if not there are

provisions in the bylaw to address

this and the council would

consider its options.

Other changes include the

provision of residents only

parking areas in cases of need

and the ban of parking on grass

berms beyond a kerb or footpath

in living zones.

Electric scooters have also

been included in the amended

bylaw.

The bylaw was adopted for

public consultation at a district

council meeting last week and

residents can have their say on

the amendments.

In a report presented to district

councillors, transportation

team leader Mark Chamberlain

said there have been some issues

arise during the time of the

current bylaw and it is due to be

reviewed.

Public consultation on the

amended traffic and parking

bylaw is open now and will close

on October 18.

Some residents say

stadium would

benefit whole region

•From page 1

Many residents who were

against the idea said

the cost of rates was

the main reason for not

wanting to help.

The latest

annual Taxpayers

Organisation’s

ratepayers report, based

on 2017/18 figures,

shows the district’s

average residential

rates of $2508 were

the second-highest in

Canterbury and in the

top 20 in New Zealand.

Many of the residents

who were happy to help

fund the stadium said it

was because it would be

an asset for the whole

region.

The People’s Choice,

a Labour-aligned

group, which is seeking

a majority on the

Christchurch City Council at

October’s local body elections

wants ratepayers across all of

Canterbury to contribute to the

stadium’s cost.

This would save Christchurch

Sam Broughton

Bill Woods

ratepayers up to $200 million, it

says.

The Christchurch

City Council has

allocated $253 million

for a stadium. The

Government will

contribute another

$220 million.

Construction is set

to begin in 2021 and is

due to be completed by

early 2024.

Mr Woods said

the main issue is the

accessibility to people

in the district.

“The Lancaster

Park site was difficult

enough but the new

site will be even

worse,” he said.

The Multi-Use

Arena is proposed to

be located in the East

Frame.

Mr Broughton said

he understands the Government

and Christchurch city budgets

cover the costs of the stadium.

“So that being the case, great,

they should go on and build it,”

he said.

The Selwyn Times asked ratepayers what they

thought of possibly having to help fund a new

stadium in Christchurch

Denise Langford, nurse,

Darfield: People here just want

to see their quite large

rates going to things

that benefit them

directly. There are already

issues here with

people feeling they’re

paying too much so I

think funding the stadium

would just make

that worse. I don’t go

into town that much

but maybe I would go

for a special event.

SELWYN TIMES

Martin Perryman, teacher

aide, Lincoln: I don’t support our

rates going towards the stadium

in Christchurch. We will still

have to pay full price for tickets

and pay for travel too. If it was

going to be built in Selwyn then

absolutely, but it’s not. It’s hard

enough to pay for things already

without rates getting even higher.

I would use the stadium sometimes

for the odd rugby game.

Denis Warren (left),

retired, Rolleston: I

think we should be

sharing the cost because

we will also be using it.

Everyone should help

because everyone will

benefit from it, even us

out here. It wouldn’t be

right to say no we won’t

help but we still want

the benefits.

Cath Harding, retired,

Lincoln: I completely agree the

stadium should be funded by

everyone. I know our family

would use it a lot and our

grandchildren. It just makes

sense and I hope people don’t just

think about themselves here. I

wouldn’t use it myself so much

but I absolutely know people who

would, especially young people.

•HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think Selwyn ratepayers should help pay for

Christchurch’s new stadium. Email your views to devon.bolger@starmedia.kiwi

Tony Watts, builder, Lincoln:

I don’t want to fund the stadium.

Our rates are too high already

as it is. Christchurch residents

aren’t interested in what we’re

doing here, they don’t help fund

anything for us so I don’t think

we should get involved. I wouldn’t

use it because I’m not a rugby fan.

I’m much more into cricket.

Graham Harding: retired,

Lincoln: I do think our rates

here should go towards it

too because it’s a stadium for

all of Canterbury, not just

Christchurch. We’re a rugby-mad

town out here in Lincoln so to

deny to help this is just putting

your head in the sand. I’d use

the stadium for rugby games and

things like that.

Frank Ah Kuoi: personal

trainer, Rolleston: We should

put some money towards it

because we would use it. Not

me personally but young people

especially. It’s a great opportunity

for the next generation coming

through. We always try to do

better for the next generation so

this stadium is really for them.

Stephen Hampton, concrete

kerber, Lincoln: We should help

to fund the stadium. Plenty of

other things are built using public

funds and the people contributing

don’t benefit, so that’s not really

an argument. In this case though

I can imagine it being an asset

for the whole of Canterbury and

I personally would get a lot of use

out of it. If there’s a test match on

then I will definitely go.

Lena Atger, shipping

administration, Rolleston: I

don’t think we should help pay

for the stadium. We pay rates for

things in our own district. Is the

Christchurch City Council going

to help us fund the aquatic centre

extension? No, so why should we

help them with this?

Daphne Warner, retired,

Springston: I would really rather

they put more money into the

district itself. We need a 50m

swimming pool here so we don’t

have to keep travelling to Dunedin

and that’s just one of the things

desperately needed here. I don’t

quite know about me but my

grandchildren would definitely use

the stadium.

Hong Zhang, scientist, West

Melton: I don’t support residents

here funding the stadium. Rates

in Selwyn should stay in Selwyn.

I wouldn’t use the stadium I don’t

think, no.

Katrina Berry, health and

safety manager, Rolleston: I

would support my rates going

towards the stadium because I

think it will benefit the entire

Canterbury region. I think it

should be levied in terms of

distance so those closest to it fund

it the most. I’d be happy if they

implemented something like this.

At the end of the day, we need this

stadium so let’s just get on with

it. I’d definitely use it, I’m always

having to go down to Dunedin for

concerts and things.

Lin Zhang, unemployed, West

Melton: I agree that there are

things money should go to in this

district first. Then maybe I would

be happy to help fund a stadium,

but not at the moment.

Ashley Pecker, admin

assistant, Lincoln: Rates are

already quite high out here and

there is still a lot of work that

needs to be done so I don’t think

our money should be put towards

the stadium. Rates are supposed

to go towards projects and

services within the area a council

serves, not other areas.

Bob Shand, project

manager, Rolleston: I

don’t really have a problem

with funding the stadium.

It would not only be good

for Christchurch but the

whole region and I would

definitely still make the

trip for a game of rugby.

John Doyle: farmer,

Greendale: Selwyn

residents should not fund

the stadium. It’s more of

a project for Christchurch

and we have plenty of

things going on here that

need money. We should

focus on our own projects.

Bernie Morrison,

business owner,

Rolleston: It does depend

on the percentage that we

would pay but if it’s not

ridiculously high then I

am happy to fund it. It

can’t just be paid for by

Christchurch residents

because that’s not really

fair to them.

Laurie Manuel, retired,

Prebbleton: I would prefer

my rates went to facilities

in Selwyn. The swimming

pool expansion and projects

like that are important

for our community and

I would like to see them

finished first. I wouldn’t

use it personally, no. I

can’t stand going into

Christchurch.

Alistair Macmillan,

electrician, Lincoln: I’m

probably a bad person

to ask because I’m really

excited about the stadium

in general so if we have to

help pay for it then so be it.

I’d use it and I know plenty

of people who would, so I

wouldn’t be angry.

Upasana Singh,

unemployed, Rolleston:

We pay more than enough

rates already I really don’t

think they should be any

higher. I don’t know how

much I would actually use

the stadium either. I would

potentially go to a concert

or two but I’m not into

sports.

Sophia Tankard,

receptionist, Burnham:

I just don’t want my rates

to go up so if they find out

a way for us to help fund

it without that happening

then I am on board.

Ken Richards: soldier,

Rolleston: I’m not happy

about this idea. I pay a lot

for my rates as it is and

I would still have to buy

tickets and pay for petrol

to drive in. If they had free

buses for it then that would

be different but they won’t.

I would be happy to fund it

if they offered local tickets

at discounted prices for us.

Alisa Dunn,

administration worker,

Lincoln: I have no problem

at all with helping to fund

the stadium. It’s not just

for Christchurch it’s for

everyone so I don’t really

mind. I will definitely use

it. It’ll be great having

something like it so close.

Sean Bell, builder,

Lincoln: I’m a pretty huge

rugby fan so if us funding

it is what it takes to get the

stadium complete then I

am okay with that. I will

definitely use it whenever

there’s a test on.

Wearable arts success for Lincoln High

LINCOLN HIGH School

students have proven their

skills at the North Canterbury

Wearable Arts show.

Nine students took part in the

competition in Rangiora and

they received four awards.

In the environment section,

Alexandra Causer came second

in the year 9-10 division with

her 60s-inspired garment

made from old computer punch

cards.

Sarah McDougall, Aria Lyver

and Caitlin Watson came third

in the same division with their

LGBTQ+ inspired rainbow coloured

dress made from Resene

paint pallets.

In the open section, Sarah

Giles came second with her

playing cards dress and Cassandra

Ngo came third with her

Vietnamese-inspired dress made

from toi toi and plants

Textile teacher Emma Paterson

said other great garments

were also on show, Rosa Dunbar

had a cloud-inspired garment

made from stuffing and Ardra

Heffer made a dress from chip

packets.

“The girls looked amazing

and even though they were a

bit nervous they didn’t show it

once they were on stage. The

parents were all there to support

the girls, which was a proud

moment for all the families

involved,” she said.

“I want to congratulate the

girls for their hard work over

the past three terms getting

their garments finished, they all

looked fabulous and the hard

work paid off.”

Ms Paterson said she looks

forward to seeing the garments

entered in the Art Couture Show

at the Lincoln Event Centre in

the school holidays next month.

Work on uni rec centre

to start next month

THE LINCOLN University

Recreation Centre is set to

undergo a transformation.

Next month a major $10 million

upgrade on the building will begin

and will add around 1800m²

floor space as well as new exercise,

teaching and research space.

The main gym will more than

double in size and there will be

a separate RPM room, external

exercise space, multiuse studio

and revamped changing facilities.

The upgrade begins next

month with the refurbishment of

the external changing rooms and

then the main work will begin in

early 2020, with a scheduled finish

in February 2021.

Lincoln University executive

director campus life Stuart Reilly

said the facility was last upgraded

in 1995 and the improved facilities

and new equipment would

give students and community

members more options.

“The focus for the refurbishment

is on student sport and

fitness needs and would include

a new sport and exercise lab for

research, contributing to the

expertise the centre could offer to

the public through being part of

a university,” Mr Reilly said.

He said the work would be

staged to ensure as little disruption

as possible to the centre

users and there will be regular

updates on progress.

“The upgrade is part of a wider

campus development plan which

aims to develop a more modern,

vibrant and safe campus, providing

a positive campus experience

for students and staff, and growing

Lincoln University’s future as

a world-class research and teaching

precinct.”

Environmental sustainability

is at the core of the campus

improvements, which includes

energy diversification measures

such as the use of renewable

energy sources like solar energy.

The

Lincoln

Bowling

Club is

looking

to attract

new

members

for the

upcoming

season.

Have a bowl in Lincoln

• By Jacob Page

THE LINCOLN Bowling Club want more

people to roll-up onto the greens this

summer.

Member Denis Smith said the

club will host a ‘give it a go day’

from 10am to 2pm on Sunday in a

bid to introduce the sport to more

people – and it has some novel

ideas to bring in the punters.

“We’re a progressive club, and

while a number of our members

are starting to look a bit grey

on top, we know that bowls is a

young person’s game and we’d like

to welcome some new faces.”

People will get the opportunity

on Sunday to have a bowl, with coaching

and a sausage sizzle provided.

All first year members will also be in

with a chance of getting their season

membership reimbursed.

“We have everything here for people to

Denis Smith

give the game a go,” Mr Smith said.

The club will continue its popular

Twilight Bowls initiative on Mondays

from October 7 until Christmas.

Social games are played from 5-8pm

and cost $5 per person or $20 for

a team of six.

“It doesn’t matter if you don’t

know anyone, we’ll soon find you

a team and teach you the basics.

It’s a relaxed way to meet people

and be introduced to the game,”

” Mr Smith said.

After Christmas the club will

hold its six-week community

bowls competition, which will

see 150 people on the greens each

week. “The community bowls

nights are absolutely massive,” Mr Smith

said.

“It’s become a highlight of the Selwyn

calendar for many and it’s been going for

longer than I know and I’m sure it will be

great again.”

Look out pests – the trap

library is about to launch

• By Devon Bolger

RESIDENTS WILL be able to borrow

pest traps and take them home thanks to

a new Lincoln Envirotown Trust project

next month.

Envirotown trustee and project

manager Sam Rowland said it is very

excited to get the

initiative off the

ground.

“We are set to launch

the trap library at the

Lincoln Farmers and

Craft Market. We were

recently able to secure

some funding from the

Lincoln community

Sam Rowland

committee to make

the traps, so we’re just

busy trying to get all

the information ready and preparing for

the launch,” she said.

The project will operate like book

library, Ms Rowland said.

“There will be people stationed there

providing backyard trapping advice.

You can borrow a (Department of

Conservation) 200 trap that trap rats,

stoats and hedgehogs, and a month

later bring it back. We’ll ask for some

information of what you’ve caught so we

can keep a record of it.”

Canterbury’s fastest selling

new subdivision

PEST CATCHER: DOC 200 traps will

be available at the Lincoln Envirotown

Trust trap library when it starts

operating next month. ​

Bait will also be provided, depending

on the pests you want to catch.

The initiative is the next logical step

in helping to improve biodiversity in the

district, she said.

“Lincoln Envirotown does a lot of

planting around the district and public

education, so for us it’s just the logical

next step to begin a trapping project that

means the general public can do this

themselves with no barriers.”

•The trap library will operate from

10am to 1pm on the last Saturday of

every month from October 26 at the

Lincoln Farmers and Craft Market on

From cheers to tears

PEOPLE MUST think I’m an

alcoholic or something.

Vittoria loves to make little

toasts, she’ll do it as soon as

she has anything like a cup or

bottle in hand. It’s all perfectly

innocent I swear, but she even

says “cheers”.

However, when I took her

for storytimes at Tūranga on

Tuesday (well, I heard a line

of the story before Vittoria

rushed off to the slide, so I

guess that counts), she started

doing it with little plastic cups

in the Imagination Station.

There were plenty of parents

around, yet not one said

anything like “that’s cute”. A

clear indication that they think

I’m home all day setting a bad

example and slurring my way

through cheers after cheers. At

least in my mind.

It’s been a quiet and

thankfully normal first

week back to post-holiday

normality, and Vittoria’s

antics would have almost

been the highlight if I hadn’t

experienced my first serious

temper tantrum.

Through some miracle it

was at home rather than a

supermarket or sombre family

event, but it was the kind that

would get talked about for

years if it happened in the

aforementioned places.

The wee darling was already

in an out-of-sorts kind of way,

having gotten grumpy at me

after I didn’t let her throw

food on the floor at the library.

But when I served up her

lunch after we got home it just

elevated the slight whinging

to full blown tears and heavy

sobbing.

For an entire hour Vittoria

was completely lost to the

tantrum, wandering the

house utterly distraught.

Occasionally writhing about

on the floor or crying in a

corner.

Nothing I could do would

calm her – singing, cuddles,

talking calmly, changing the

food or bringing out some

normally popular fruit. No joy.

In desperation, I turned to

VITTORIA

& Matt

showing her videos of herself

on my phone.

Which, weirdly, worked

almost straight away. She

stopped crying and screaming,

picked herself up and started

laughing at a video of her

dancing.

Whether any old video

would have worked is still out

for debate, but even if she is

the world’s smallest narcissist,

it’s all good.

It got her eating her

lunch and back on the good

behaviour train. I like the

really good behaviour train.

I just asked her if she wanted

a nap after lunch and she just

waved goodbye to her toys,

jumped into my arms and was

asleep within 15min.

She then slept for an hour

and a half and then was a

total angel all afternoon and

evening.

It’s like she’d got all the day’s

upset out of the way in one hit.

Still, not something I’d

recommend.

Rolleston

students

show off

their talent

• By Jacinda Tucker

ROLLESTON College students

showed off their skills during a

talent show.

About 30 acts entered the

RC’s Got Talent Show, with 12

making it into the finals which

were due to be held yesterday.

There was a large group of

unique performances from

comedy and dancing to singing,

music and bands.

Although some students

had been practicing for a long

time, others took the show as

an opportunity to step out of

their comfort zones and try

something new.

The finals coincided with the

school’s open night to allow

parents and the public a chance

to see the performances.

The heats cost a gold coin

entry fee, with the money going

toward a prize for the winning

student.

However, most students

entered because they have a

passion for performing or to give

something new a go.

Many students in the audience

sung along with the performers,

while some pulled out their

phones lights and waved their

arms.

allen Lim Director/Engineer/Grower - Standing for Environment Canterbury

SELWYN TIMES

We could not be at a more crucial time of

need for a practical approach to issues that

confront us daily – degradation of water,

imbalanced biodiversity, mahinga kai, climate

change, the economy and more.

These issues desperately need our attention,

yet they cannot be solved overnight, or by

simplistically focusing on only one element of

this complex situation. We urgently need an

integrated approach that takes us on a transition

to a new way of living in, and sustaining, our

environment.

For this reason, I am standing as a candidate

for the ECan Mid Canterbury – Ōpākihi

region. I want to play a part of preserving our

environment for future generations, while

ensuring the changes made still support our

communities. I believe I have the experience

and capability to do so.

I am an entrepreneur and a commercial

horticultural farmer. I am a degree qualified

Mechanical Engineer and am a member of

the government advisory Freshwater Leaders

Group, the Selwyn-Waihora Water Zone

Committee where I was Chair for 4 years.

I sit on multiple industry boards including

Vegetables New Zealand Inc, Horticulture

Canterbury Growers Society, and NZGAP.

I know ECAN is not just about water, that’s

where I can bring my range of proven skills to

bear. I am a good listener and have balanced

views. Most importantly, I recognise we are

all in this together and therefore need to work

together.

Vote for tangible and balanced action on

water issues, vote for Allen Lim.

Authorised by Allen Lim 31 Lincoln Rolleston Road, RD 8, Christchurch.

John Sunckell ECan Councillor/Paramedic/Farmer - Standing for Environment Canterbury

It has been a privilege to represent Mid

Canterbury - Ashburton and Selwyn Districts.

I am standing for re election because not only

have I genuinely enjoyed my first term, I feel I

have made a very positive and real contribution.

I understand politics and how to engage in

processes to achieve the best outcomes

possible in what at times are almost no win

situations.

Through the Canterbury Water Management

Strategy portfolio, I’ve led the Selwyn River

recharge programme, advocated for the

review of Ashburton River consents allowing

for adaptation and achieved the statutory

acknowledgement of the Hinds Drains working

group recommendations.

Through the Hazard and Risk portfolio I am

the ECan nominee on the Canterbury Group

Civil Defence committee, and at present I

am the deputy Chair. This has given me the

opportunity to work with both the Minister and

the Civil Defence Ministry in providing input into

what the new Emergency Response Ministry

will look like ,and the processes and systems

that sit under it.

I believe that the combination of my 3

years at Ecan, 32 years on the road as a

volunteer ambulance officer, and life time in

rural communities has given me unique insight

into environmental management issues and

the process and impact of these on both the

community and individuals. A vote for me will

ensure an informed and steady hand remains at

the council table, representing and advocating

for Mid Canterbury.

2019 LocaL ELEctions - meet your candidates

sophie Mcinnes Full-Time Parent (Previously PA) - Standing for Selwyn Central Ward

Kia ora, and thank you for your interest in

local elections!

I’m passionate about representing young

families, youth, immigrants, and the ruralurban

mix that’s developing here. After years of

making submissions and debating needs versus

rates with other residents, I am 100% ready to

give those opinions a louder voice in council.

I have lived in Selwyn Central for 6 years –

first on a lifestyle block in Broadfield, and more

recently in Rolleston. I love big multi-faceted

challenges, and my employment history as a

PA ranges from small business to education

and local government. For the last few years I

have been a full-time mum of three and chronic

volunteer however, which has given me greater

insight into our community as a whole.

I love how Selwyn is becoming somewhere

that we all can truly live, work, play, and learn,

but believe we need to do more to reduce how

much time and money our residents actually

spend in Christchurch.

I want to continue the development of local

facilities, businesses, and infrastructure,

but also ensure that council listens to the

community when debating the new District Plan,

and fully considers the impacts on our people,

land, and water.

The coming years will also be huge in terms

of applying climate change-related legislation

at a local level. We need to work harder to

minimise waste, engage young people in longterm

decisions, and support a strong districtwide

community.

I invite you to visit my website

www.sophieforselwyncentral.co.nz to find out

more about me and my views on the issues

facing Selwyn today and in the future. Ask me

questions, challenge me, and let me know

what’s important to you too.

sam Broughton Current Mayor - Standing for Mayor

Kia ora, I love serving our community and am

excited to continue to lead as our Mayor.

My wife Liz and I live in Darfield with our 2

year old daughter Elliott.

Selwyn continues to grow and develop, as

does our communities expectations on council.

Our growing diversity and perspectives can help

ensure we honour our heritage, remain focused

on meeting the needs of today and plan wisely

for our future.

Council governs $1.6 billion of assets and

has income of $140 million. This requires us to

choose a Council with a broad range of skills.

In my first 3 years, on top of councils usual

work, we have made major investments

in community infrastructure, completed

earthquake works, and overhauled our

consultation process to focus on meeting with

you to talk on the street rather than speaking in

meetings at you.

I appreciate your continued support this

election. Sam

Mark alexander Current Selwyn District Councillor - Standing for Selwyn Central Ward

I’m passionate about the people and

communities of the Selwyn Central Ward and

the Selwyn District. As a current councillor I

am a strong and experienced advocate for our

communities.

My wife and I have lived in the Selwyn for 25

years, bringing up our son (20). In this time, I

have been a member, volunteer, and supporter

of our sports clubs and community groups.

I believe in strong open honest

communication between residents, communities

and council. I’m not afraid to ask and answer

the hard questions – no matter if the question or

answer is unpopular.

I have advocated and worked for improved

public transport, more footpaths, new and

expanded schools, new community facilities,

new sports grounds and reserves, promoted

and supported road safety initiatives and

improvements. There’s more to do.

An accredited Resource Management

Act Commissioner I have to knowledge and

experience to help get our new District Plan

through the public notification stage, hearings

and deliberations to decisions.

Rate rises need to be as little as possible,

but as much as necessary to maintain council’s

assets and provide the services that residents

have asked for.

I will continue to work hard for you and

your community - not another employer, political

party, or lobby group, representing you and your

community’s aspirations.

My work for our community, our district isn’t

finished. I have the knowledge, experience,

energy, passion, enthusiasm and commitment

to deliver for you!

I need your support, your vote, to work for

you and your community.

nicole Reid Current Selwyn District Councillor - Standing for Selwyn Central Ward

Selwyn Central, namely Rolleston, has been

my home for the last nine years. I love living

here so I stood for council in 2016, and was

honoured to be elected. I am passionate about

the Selwyn District. I truly want our district to

the best it can be with healthy, sustainable

communities that all ages and abilities can

enjoy. To achieve this, I believe it is my duty to

listen and advocate for our community.

As a mother of three boys (9, 11, 13 years), I

have been actively involved in the community. I

am a past Chairperson of Rolleston Residents

Association, previous member of Rolleston

School BoT, and was a scout leader.

My background is in environmental

engineering and planning so I am able to

understand and question the technical detail

reported to Council. I have taken a strong

interest in water, waste and wastewater issues,

the Rolleston town centre development, the

indoor courts facility, Te Ara Ātea (library/

community space), and the district plan review

as well. Road safety has also been a key focus

of mine and I am currently the district road

safety committee’s chairperson. I also currently

represent mid-Canterbury councils (Selwyn

and Ashburton) on the Canterbury Water

Management Strategy Regional Committee.

All of this work is still ongoing so I ask for your

continued support by re-electing me. Please

I am once again standing for councillor for the

Selwyn Central Ward. It has been a privilege to

have represented this ward for these last nine

years.

During this time I have advocated on your

behalf for better facilities, more schools,

improved bus services, new parks and reserves,

better roads and footpaths. I have pushed for

better recognition for the arts, the preservation

of our history and culture. I am driven to achieve

results for the wider community and prepared to

listen and take your views and issues seriously.

Together we can make our district a better place

to live, work, and play.

I am passionate about our district and have

enjoyed living in the Selwyn Central Ward with

my wife Julie and family for the last 22 years. I

am now retired from the New Zealand Police,

with the last four years of my 38-year career

based at Selwyn. I have also served on the

Selwyn Central Community Board and many

local community groups and have an in-depth

understanding of how local governance works.

Once again I ask for your vote so I can

represent you with dignity, honesty and, as

always, with a common sense approach

to resolving the issues and challenges that

confront us. A vote for me will give the Selwyn

Central Ward an opportunity to continue to grow

and prosper. I look forward to working with you

Selwyn Times

Voting opens in 2019 local

council elections

Voting is now officially open in the 2019 local council elections.

Most Selwyn electors will have received their voting papers in the mail by the end of this week

– and voters are being encouraged to get their completed voting forms in the post as early as

possible.

Everyone who is enrolled as a parliamentary elector should receive voting papers automatically,

says Deputy Electoral Officer Stephen Hill, but anyone who hasn’t received their papers by the

end of the week should contact the Council on 347 2800.

Local elections are held by postal voting, and voting papers must be received by the Council

before midday on Election Day, Saturday 12 October. “The sooner people can get their papers

into the post, the more certain they can be that their vote will be counted,” Mr Hill says.

“We’re also providing ballot boxes at several Council locations across the district including

Council headquarters in Rolleston, libraries at Darfield, Leeston, Lincoln and Rolleston, and at the

Selwyn Aquatic Centre, Lincoln Event Centre and West Melton Community and Recreation Centre.

“It was great to see the first votes cast last Friday as residents dropped their voting papers in to

the ballot box at Council HQ.”

For details on the elections, including special voting and candidate information, visit

selwyn.govt.nz/elections.

Magical creatures spotted at McHughs Park

A touch of magic has descended on McHughs Forest Park.

Blown in by the nor’west wind, a magical community has moved into the forest near Darfield just in time

for the school holidays.

From Friday 27 September families can find 20 magic doors hidden in the forest. Look out for the signs

and see if you can spot the dragon sleeping.

The magical community will also be visiting Darfield Library to support a magical storytime on 27

September at 3.30pm and a Faerie Party on Friday 4 October, 10.30am–12pm, including dancing, face

painting, and a treasure hunt.

The idea for the doors had been used internationally and in other Canterbury

districts, but with the creative genius of the men at Darfield Menz Shed,

which built and decorated the doors, it has been adapted to something

special for Selwyn, Community Services staff member Kelsey Waghorn says.

“They bring a bit of joy in a different way and give people another reason to

visit one of the many really cool outdoors spots that Selwyn has to offer.”

To help the magical creatures feel welcome it is important visitors respect

their space and take only photographs and leave only footprints.

If you do take photographs Darfield Library will print these for free, to display

in the library and a copy to take home.

Swim School instructor wins

national award

Selwyn Swim School instructor Jenny Heaton’s outstanding

contribution to teaching swimming has been recognised nationally.

Ms Heaton won the Outstanding Contribution to Learn to Swim

award at the New Zealand Swim Coaches and Teachers Association

national awards for her 14 years of teaching, including six at Selwyn

Aquatic Centre, where she is the Preschool Coordinator.

She also set up Splash Time, a free class for parents and children,

trained and mentored six volunteers to become qualified swim

instructors, and championed the introduction of the popular safe

boating programme.

Council Aquatics Facilities manager James Richmond says the

career award was a huge achievement to win against people who

had been working in the industry all their lives.

It is well deserved for a teacher who is loved by children and

parents, he says. “Jenny is attentive to all 570 children enrolled in

the preschool programme. She engages with and tracks them all.”

Originally a preschool teacher, Ms Heaton first got into teaching

when she was taking her children to swimming classes and doing

some lifeguarding.

She says she loves seeing children grow and learn about being safe

around water. “It’s my happy place in the pool.”

She did not know the team had nominated her for the award until a

few weeks before the awards ceremony.

“It was a bit of a shock to hear my name called out. It’s a pretty

cool award to get, but it’s not something you do on your own, it’s

a team effort.”

Selwyn Swim School based at Selwyn Aquatic Centre was also a

finalist in the Outstanding Swim School category.

Faces of Selwyn celebrated

At 8.30 on a Sunday morning, Gabi Michael is tucked away in her

home brewery trying to brew the perfect beer.

Gabi moved to New Zealand in 2003 from Campo Grande, Brazil,

and is the co-founder, sales and marketing manager at Gladfield

Malt. Her story is part of a new project by the Selwyn District

Council celebrating the diversity of the district and the things we

have in common as the many Faces of Selwyn.

The Faces of Selwyn project will begin with an exhibition at Lincoln

Event Centre from 2–9 October showcasing 10 stories of recent

arrivals to the district and those who have been here much longer.

In the past 10 years the population of Selwyn has nearly doubled.

“Each person brings different stories that enrich us, but they also

have many shared links. These things weave together to give us

such a vibrant culture and we want to celebrate that,” Council

Community Services Group manager Denise Kidd says.

Following the exhibition the 10 stories will be used in displays at

Selwyn Libraries. Along with further stories to come they will also

feature on the Council website and in other Council publications.

Work begins on Aquatic Centre extension

Work is beginning this week on the extension to the Selwyn Aquatic Centre.

The Council has appointed Armitage Williams Construction Limited to carry out the extension and

refurbishment of the existing pool.

The new 10-lane, 25-metre pool will more than double the lane capacity at the aquatic centre and

accommodate increasing demand from aquafitness, casual swimming, deep water and other activities.

There will also be additional changing rooms, foyer and administration space and the option for a

possible café in the future.

The extension is expected to be open to the public in late 2020. The total cost of the project will be

$13.8 million.

The work will be completed in stages to minimise disruption to pool users. From Monday, traffic management

will be in place along Broadlands Drive when required to allow truck access in and out of the site.

Aquatic Facilities manager James Richmond says the centre is one of the most popular destinations in

the district with more than 380,000 visits per year. “We know people wanted more lane space and learn to

swim capacity and we’re looking forward to a fantastic pool at the end that will serve everyone in district.”

ON THE

ROADS

On the roads this week

The intersection at Larcombs Road and Main South

Road will be restricted to left turning traffic only for two

weeks before being closed permanently as part of the

Christchurch Southern Motorway extension.

Zig Zag Road will be closed for maintenance from 6.30am–6pm until

Friday 27 September. A detour will be in place. Footpath construction

is taking place in Darfield on Kimberley Road and Snowdon Place.

These footpaths will be closed during the construction.

PROPOSAL TO REVOKE RESERVATIONS

ON RESERVES WITHIN

SELWYN DISTRICT COUNCIL

Pursuant to Section 24(2)(b) of the Reserves Act

1977, the Selwyn District Council gives notice

that it proposes to have reservations revoked

on the reserves identified as being surplus to its

requirements as listed in the schedule below.

A comprehensive audit of these reserves has been

carried out to identify those that are surplus to

requirements because they are either no longer

required for that purpose or have no future use or

benefit to the Council. Once revocation has been

approved, it is intended that these reserves will be

handed back to the Department of Conservation

for revocation and disposal procedures.

Submissions to this proposal are open until Friday

25 October 2019.

To make a submission or an objection, or to find

out more about this proposal, please contact the

Manage fleas all year round

Our pets are with us, our families, and in

our homes all year round. In the past, flea

treatment has been viewed as a seasonal

need over the warmer months in spring

and summer. Now with our homes warm

all year round and our pets inside, flea

treatment needs to be managed all year

round.

While no one likes to have to think

about fleas, preventative management of

fleas is recommended for your pet’s and

family’s health. Once fleas have established

themselves in your home, they are difficult

to get rid of. Not treating for fleas during

winter can allow flea eggs to build up in

your home, resulting in an ‘outbreak’ when

temperatures increase and the eggs hatch.

There are four stages in the life cycle

of a flea: egg, larva, pupa (cocoon), and

adult. Depending on the environmental

temperature and humidity levels, the

total life cycle will take anywhere from

a few weeks to many months. Optimal

conditions for fleas are between 21 and

30°C, and 70% humidity. This is why fleas

exist in our warm home environment all

year round.

During autumn and winter, when the

temperature is well below 21°C, many

immature fleas will remain dormant,

particularly as pupae (in cocoons that

are very hardy), waiting in the carpet,

furniture and bedding of the pet’s

environment. Once it becomes warm

again, adult fleas will hatch from pupae

and infest pets. Pets will also pick up

fleas when out in the garden or on a walk,

so it is important to give them the best

protection.

There are now many effective new

products to control fleas with active

ingredients which work by killing fleas and

breaking the flea cycle. There are topical

treatments where you apply on skin on

the back of your pet’s neck. Oral tablets

and chews for dogs and cats are also

available for flea and tick protection. These

products vary in duration of action from

four weeks to six months, best to speak

to your vet about what option would suit

you and your lifestyle best. There is also an

effective and safe flea collar on the market

providing flea protection for up to eight

months.

Helping animals

to live their best

lives

Newly appointed SPCA general manager

for the southern region, Sam Powell,

believes the role of the SPCA is about

education and advocacy and is looking

forward to working with communities and

SPCAs throughout the South Island.

Based in Christchurch, Ms Powell is

accountable for leading all aspects of the

southern region, with specific emphasis on

leading and embedding transformational

change.

Ms Powell leads 14 SPCA centres,

13 SPCA Op Shops, 150 staff, and 600

volunteers. SPCA is the only charity in

New Zealand with the power to protect

all animals, including prosecuting people

under the Animal Welfare Act. SPCA runs

39 centres nationwide which help around

41,000 animals each year.

With an extensive nursing background,

Ms Powell has held a variety of nursing

leadership roles at the Canterbury

District Health Board, South Canterbury

DHB, Monash Health in Melbourne

and most recently as general manager

of Community Services at Nurse Maude

Association based in Christchurch. Ms

Powell has a proven track record of

working in environments with increasing

demand and constrained resources, and

she draws parallels between nursing and

animal welfare.

“The principles of people and animal

welfare are very similar, it is about

enabling people and animals to live their

best lives in a safe, warm, and healthy

environment,” says Ms Powell.

Ms Powell says that animal welfare is

a topic that is close to her heart. She is

excited by the challenge of enabling staff

and volunteers to do their jobs to the best

of their ability while advancing animal

welfare and preventing animal cruelty

across the South Island. She says she

looks forward to managing community

expectations and providing equitable

service across the region.

A passionate animal lover,

Sam Powell has had pets all

her life and is pictured with

her boxer, Bruce.

SPEED: Hamish Macdonald in action trying to win a world title.

Macdonald on cusp

of world enduro title

• By Jacob Page

WEST Melton endurance

motor-cycle racer Hamish

Macdonald is on the

cusp of a world title

this weekend in the 125

Youth Cup class of the

FIM Enduro GP World

Championships in Europe.

The 20-year-old leads the

series after two wins in the

Czech Republic a fortnight

ago and a strong finish in

France this weekend could

see him secure the title in

only his second year in the

class.

It also may leave

Macdonald with the

distinction of winning

a world title before a

New Zealand one having

SPORT

finished third at the

national championships in

2017.

“Happy to get two more

wins in the bag and taking

the championship points

lead into the final round in

France,” Macdonald said.

Macdonald dominated

the first two rounds of the

series in Germany and

Portugal in March and

May respectively, a crash

during the third round in

Spain resulted in a broken

scapula bone in the shoulder

and broken clavicle put

his title chances at risk.

Macdonald bounced

back to finished second

in a race in Italy during

round five in June and now

two race wins in the Czech

Republic have him on the

verge of a world title.

“The Czech Republic always

looked like it was going

to be a great event and

after three days of walking

tests it certainly was going

to push us.

“The enduro test – 10

minutes of roots and rocks.”

Macdonald said he felt

the penultimate round

would be crucial in deciding

who wins the overall

title.

“This would be where

the event would be won or

lost.”

Broadfield A end seven-year title drought

• By Jacob Page

WINNING THE Selwyn

premier netball title was enough

to make Broadfield A coach

Yvonne Crichton-Hill “a little

teary” on Saturday.

Broadfield A beat Greenpark A

63-50 in the final at the Lincoln

Event Centre.

The result

also provided

goal in the

“It was

amazing – so good,” Crichton-

Hill said after the team won their

first title since 2012.

“I felt a bit teary because I was

so proud of them. The whole

team was amazing.

“I think last year really hurt

us and we didn’t want to go back

there again.

“When you have close losses

like (last year’s final) it’s always

in the back of your mind, and

I thought we turned it into a

motivator and not a barrier.

“It’s pleasing to win when you

know the competition is tough.”

Broadfield A led all the way

and a strong third quarter

turned their two-goal half-time

advantage into a 10-goal lead

heading into the final quarter.

Goal shoot Maia Hill was

dominant, hitting 52 of her

53 attempts, while Shannon

Bridge’s move from the defensive

circle to goal attack also paid

dividends.

“I thought everyone was calm

and played with precision,”

Crichton-Hill said.

“Greenpark A are a strong

team and they are big. We

don’t have height but we do

have speed, but sometimes we

get carried away with it. But

I thought we were very good

through court for the whole

game.

“We know from experience

that Greenpark A are tough. We

we did that.”

Tough choices for

Mazda3 buyers

Gardening

Rocket likes the sun

WHEN I recently

evaluated the entry-level

Mazda3 with its 2-litre

engine, I wrote that it was

the car for me.

For one, I particularly

like the hatchback/sedan

concept and, for another,

its affordable price and

build quality makes it a

very tempting proposition.

However, I’ve since

changed my mind, after

driving the next level up

in the series I’ve discovered

that it is even more

tempting. The Mazda3

GTX shares much the same

specification as the entrylevel

model, but its 2.5-litre

engine is an absolute stunner

and I’d be prepared to

pay extra for it.

To recap, the all-new

Mazda3 lands in six

variations, there are three

hatchbacksand three

sedans, all priced similarly.

There’s a choice of a 2-litre

or 2.5-litre engine in both

body styles, with Limited

variations rounding out the

series at $48,795.

The base model GSX

lands at $36,595, while the

mid-spec model which has

really captured my attention

sits at $40,795.

When I say mid-spec,

it doesn’t miss out on

much. Sure it doesn’t get

leather trim nor electric

seat adjustment, but that

suits me fine. I’ve often

written that some buyers

don’t want all the bells and

whistles and that’s me, I’m

very much drawn to those

models which provide the

best value.

The Mazda3 GTX benefits

from its bigger engine.

It does everything just

so easily and never feels

strained, also fuel usage

isn’t compromised. Mazda

claims 6.6-litre per 100km

(43mpg) combined cycle

average for the 2.5, that’s

opposed to a 6.2l/100km

(45mpg) figure for the

2-litre engine. That being

the case, the difference is

marginal.

During my time with

the GTX it was constantly

sitting around 7.8l/100km

(36mpg), which was much

the same as those I recorded

in the GSX. At 100km/h

the instantaneous readout

sits at 5l/100km (56mpg)

with the engine turning

over at a leisurely1900rpm,

reinforcing my statement

that the engine is largely

under stressed, and that accounts

for the efficiency.

On the subject of figures,

Mazda claims 139kW and

252Nm power outputs for

the 2.5 (2-litre, 114kW

and 200Nm). While the

2-litre punches above its

weight, the extra torque of

MAZDA3 GTX HATCHBACK: Effortless power

from 2.5-litre engine.

the 2.5 really shows, the

GTX is also lightweight at

1368kg, so the power-toweight

equation is biased

well towards performance.

The GTX will scamper to

100km/h in 8.8sec, and will

cut out a highway overtake

in 4.9sec (80-120km/h).

• Price – Mazda3 GTX

hatchback, $40,795

• Dimensions –

Length, 4460mm;

width, 1795mm;

height, 1435mm

• Configuration

– Four-cylinder,

front-wheel-drive,

2488cc, 139kW,

252Nm, six-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.8sec

• Fuel usage –

6.6l/100km

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

Drive is channelled

through a six-speed automatic

transmission, that

is the only gearbox in the

range.

It stands out for its quick,

smooth shifts andratios

which always seem to have

the engine in the right zone

for response to throttle

request.

The GTX doesn’t get

paddle shifters, but they are

pretty much a luxury and

are included on the Limited.

However, if the driver

wants to be involved in the

gearshift process sequential

shifts can be manipulated

from the main gearshift

lever.

I took the evaluation

car inland to Methven, it’s

good to see the gateway

to Mt Hutt vibrant on a

Sunday afternoon. The

roads were a little tricky

with frost still showing on

the grass berms, and water

on the road that looked like

it was on the point of freezing

over with ice.

Nevertheless, the Mazda3

travelled the tricky sections

with surety. There

is a lot of rubber on the

road (215/45 x 18in),

consequently, there is a lot

of feedback through the

steering wheel and positive

turn-in when corners

arrive.

I mentioned in my last

evaluation that the new

Mazda3 has a torsion

beam rear suspension,

that’s a departure from the

previous generation model,

nevertheless, the more I’m

in the new 3 the more I’m

enjoying the chassis and

suspension dynamics.

The rear doesn’t quite

have the freedom of the

past, but it’s not disgraced,

and occupant comfort has

certainly not been jeopardised.

The Mazda3’s handling

qualities are certainly

up to par.

I particularly liked the

way it steers and drives out

of a corner, it is sportslike,

and I guess that’s no

surprise given Mazda’s

heritage with performance

vehicles.

For its price the GTX is

well specced. It gets satellite

navigation, idle stop-start,

head-up display and radar

cruise control, the latter

part of a huge safety package

Mazda label I-Activesense

that easily earns it a

five-star Australasian New

Car Assessment Program

rating.

The new Mazda3

hatchback stands out

for one other reason, its

styling is bold and captures

attention. The rear quarter

is almost chunky, but such

is its flow it doesn’t look

awkward.

If its styling is too bold

for some then the sedan

could well be the way into

the range. I’m due to drive

it soon, and I simply can’t

wait.

NOTHING QUITE

matches the speed and ease

of salad rocket.

In fact, once you have

it in the garden you often

don’t need to re-plant as it

readily seeds – almost everywhere.

Rocket is a wonderful

salad green.

The deliciously mustard/

peppery taste adds flavour

and depth to salad dishes,

sandwiches or even as a

pizza topping to give an

interesting combination of

flavour.

Used either on its own or

drizzled with balsamic and

parmesan or blended with

other leafy greens, it’s a

must for any vege garden.

The most common variety

is common rocket –

Eruca sativa.

A similar tasting and

looking rocket or arugula

is Diplotaxis tenuifolia.

This spicy salad green,

great for cut and come

Plant rhododendrons

WHEN IT comes to getting

bang for your buck in the spring,

some flowering plants are head

magnolias have to be near

themselves in flowers that range

in colour from crisp clean whites

to soft pinks and rich purples

characters thrive in a wide range

of conditions and recent new

hybrids have been developed for

carpet they leave behind under a low spreading bush Pieris, couple of months.

Get herbs in now

ALL THE promise of spring is

out there in the herb garden.

It’s a good idea to plant herbs

close to the kitchen — the further

away they are, the less likely

you are to pick them, especially

in rainy weather.

Most of the cooking herbs like

a place in the sun, though mint

will grow in a damp shady spot.

If you don’t have much space,

stick to those herbs you know

you’ll use in cooking.

Consider growing them in

pots, or plant herbs in the flower

garden — most are quite decorative.

Fresh coriander is an important

ingredient in many Thai

and Indian dishes and now’s the

time for planting the seeds of

this annual herb.

Coriander plants are taprooted

and don’t transplant well,

so sow seeds where you want

the plants to grow and thin out

when necessary.

The seeds are slow to germinate,

so don’t give up on them

too soon.

Some varieties of chives die

down in the winter, while others

stay green the whole year

through.

If rust is a problem, cut the

clumps back and wait for fresh

rust-free growth. If that doesn’t

work, it may be best to plant

some new bulbs in a different

spot.

Clumps need to be divided

and replanted every few years in

any case or the chives get overcrowded

and loose their vigour.

Garlic chives have a stronger

flavour than regular chives and

the flowers are white and starry

rather than pom-pom shaped.

The plants grow more slowly

and the leaves stand up to cooking

a bit better.

Parsley comes in two forms –

the curly-leaved variety and flat

or broad-leaved parsley, often

known as Italian parsley. The

latter is currently more trendy

but at a pinch you can usually

substitute one for the other.

Who doesn’t love a lush green lawn?

Spring is a fantastic time to get your

• Fertilise existing lawns now as

this will give them a good boost of

nutrients going into the growing

season. Look out for signs of red

thread, moss and grass grub and get

on top of them before it gets too bad.

Use Kiwicare LawnPro Lawn Guard for

red thread and our Lawn Fertiliser for

Moss control. As with any fertilising,

make sure you give it a good soaking

of water afterwards.

• New lawns can be sown now. Lawn

Construction Mix is excellent for this. It is easy

to work with and creates a great base for sowing

your seed. If you have some patchy areas that

need reseeding, our Lawn Topdressing Mix is

ideal for this. Just remember it needs to keep

moist at all times until the seed strikes.

continuing education

gain a

second chance

at ncea

Each year up to 10,000 young people

in New Zealand leave school with little

or no formal qualifications. Many teens

disengage with school as the teaching

environment simply does not suit their

style of learning. Research shows that

without a qualification they are more likely

to have difficulties entering the workforce,

as most jobs nowadays require NCEA and

a driver’s licence.

Many early school leavers unfortunately

believe that secondary school is the only

way to earn their NCEA qualifications.

This misconception is particularly

concerning for those young people

who don’t necessarily ‘fit’ the schooling

environment, but still want to find

employment or complete certain industry

training courses for which an NCEA

qualification is a pre-requisite.

Every year dozens of young people

are getting a second chance at earning

NCEA credits after leaving secondary

school, thanks to Vision College. The

Private Training Establishment (PTE) are

spreading awareness to the young people

in the community, making sure they know

that achieving their NCEA levels outside

of school is within their reach.

Vision College’s free ‘Ultimate’

programme offers students without NCEA

the opportunity to gain NCEA Level 1

and 2, their driver’s licence, and a range of

skills designed to make them employable.

Students earn their NCEA credits in

a more practical way, through games,

hands-on activities, and by applying their

learning to real life situations. Students

also get to experience tasters of different

career and study paths to help them

decide where they would like to head after

completing ‘Ultimate’.

School leavers can also enrol in

Security, Early Childcare or Business

Administration courses to earn not only

credits towards NCEA Level 3, but also

a career qualification in just six months.

These courses are all free for anyone aged

between 16 and 19. Upon completion

students can even pathway onto higher

study with Vision College in Web and

Software Design, Early Childhood

Education, and Counselling.

Vision College are enrolling now for

2020! For more information on their

MY PRIDE AND JOY

SELWYN TIMES

Off-roading in an

Austin 7 Scout

A love of vintage, steam and tinkering inspired

Mike Milne to build his own Austin 7 Scout, a car

he says is lots of fun and takes up little space in the

garage.

Mike, who is a member of the Vintage Car Club,

built up a collection of Austin 7 parts (all of the same

year, chassis and body numbers) then using photos

as a reference, assembled the Austin 7 Scout building

the body himself. The project took two years and

numerous hours with the car completed in 2006.

“It’s not the normal ‘run of the mill’ Austin 7. With

no lights or windscreen, the Scout is the closest

thing to driving a car without any assistance,” advises

Mike.

The Austin 7 Scout is often seen at the vintage car

trials at Balcairn, negotiating technical hill climbs,

crossing rivers and ploughing through muddy bogs.

‘Muddy’ as daughter Taylor named the car, is often

taken off-road around the Mackenzie country and

Otago, to areas such as Mt Cook Station, the Rock

and Pillar Range and the Mavora Lakes.

“Like the series Land Rover, the Austin 7 Scout can

pretty much go anywhere,” says Mike.

Mike also takes the Austin 7 Scout to larger events

like the Irishman Rally, which historically starts

near Christchurch and finishes at Irishmans Creek

(south of Tekapo). Vehicles travel approximately 120

miles each day over country and metal roads, and

some great off-road farmers’ tracks. Last year, the

event attracted 152 pre-1931 cars from around New

Zealand and overseas.

Mike’s Austin 7 Scout is a 1929 7Hp model.

Originally manufactured by the British Army’s 17th

FC (Field Company), the car was popular with the

army as substitute for tanks, the latter being limited

by an armament agreement after world war one.

With the army having lost a number of armoured

vehicles in training accidents, the Austin 7 Scout was

an affordable option for training tank crews, general

scout and patrol purposes.

Coach builder’s chassis (comprising wheels,

chassis, engine, radiator, tank, steering wheel

and seats) were supplied to the British Army and

exported to countries like France and Germany for

assembling. In America, the cars were built under

licence by Bantam, the forerunner to the Willys Jeep.

The first Austin 7 Scouts had standard mudguards.

These were replaced with more economical timber

expedition guards, which offer the advantage of

being able to be removed and used as planks when

crossing small ditches.

Mike’s Austin 7 Scout is loved by all the family. It

transports the children to and from school and takes

the family away camping, with saddle bags attached

to carry the gear. They explore many 4WD tracks

and out of the way places in the car they call ‘Muddy’.

“The Austin 7 Scout’s so different, it attracts lots of

attention,” says Mike.

The 1920

Austin 7 Scout

off-road car

Tasty Bites

SELWYN TIMES

American dessert to top off Kiwi main

This well-known Florida

dessert can be made even

better with a box of fresh

New Zealand limes

Lime Pie

Serves 8-10

Ingredients

250g digestive biscuits, well

crushed

100g butter, melted

Filling

390g sweetened condensed milk

4 egg yolks

1 tsp lime zest

½ cup fresh lime juice

Pinch of salt

300ml cream, whipped

Equipment

20cm pie dish

Directions

Heat the oven to 180 deg C.

Begin by crushing the biscuits

to a fine crumb.

Add the melted butter and mix

well so all the crumbs are coated

in the butter. Press firmly into

the pie dish covering the sides.

Bake for 15min. Remove and

cool.

To make the filling, mix the

condensed milk with the egg

yolks, lime juice and zest. Mix

thoroughly and pour into the

prepared pie crust.

Bake the pie for 15min or until

set. Remove from the oven and

cool completely.

Refrigerate for at least 4 hours,

but preferably overnight.

When ready to serve,

traditionally it is covered with

cream or you can serve it

alongside if desired.

The pie is a great way to top

off a classic South Island main

with meat and three veg

Venison fillet

Serves 4

Ingredients

850g venison fillet

500ml extra virgin olive oil

2 sprigs rosemary

1/2 head cauliflower

1 litre cream

8 heads bok choi

100ml tamari or soy sauce

250g carrots

500g agria potatoes

2 litres beef stock

1 litre chicken stock

500ml red wine (pinot

noir)

Salt, butter and cooking oil

Directions

First cut the venison fillet into

four 200g portions and marinate

in olive oil and rosemary.

Overnight is best, but for at least

a couple of hours.

Put stock and red wine in a

pot and reduce until medium

thickness and sticky, should

have a deep meaty flavour. This

may take an hour or so of rapid

boiling/reduction.

Slice potatoes as thin as

possible and layer into a baking

dish with a light sprinkle of salt

every few layers.

Bring cream to a boil and pour

over potatoes, place in oven at

165 deg C for about one hour

or until golden and cooked

through.

This can be set aside and

reheated or served fresh.

Peel carrots, toss in olive oil

and season. These can cook in

the oven with the potatoes, and

should be golden and soft to the

bite when finished.

Boil cauliflower florets in salty

water with a dash of cream or

milk in the water to make it

cloudy.

Boil for 5-8min until soft, then

blitz in food processor with a

few spoons of butter and salt to

taste until smooth. This can be

easily reheated in a saucepan.

Sear venison in cooking oil in a

hot skillet then transfer to oven

for 5min Saute bok choi in a hot

pan and deglaze with tamari –

that should steam the bok choi

through and add a nice sticky

glaze. Serve cauliflower puree,

venison and jus (gravy) on one

plate and the sides to share are

served in separate bowls.

Serve with red wine vinegar on

the side to help cut through the

gaminess of the venison.

Grab your girlfriends, mum or daughters and enjoy

a day out at one of Canterbury’s largest events!

Saturday 5 & Sunday 6 October, 10am – 5pm

Horncastle Arena, Christchurch

Door sales $10 | Kids under 12 free

This year’s Women’s Lifestyle Expo will be the biggest yet with over 200 companies

under one roof for one weekend. Pegged as the perfect girls’ day out, the show aims

to include as wide of a range of companies as possible, so the expo is a great day out

no matter what your interests are. Women are all different and their interests are so

diverse, so while one woman may be interested in gourmet food the woman beside

her may be more interested in booking a V8 Supercar drive, checking out the fashion

sites or even planning a holiday.

The show features artisan crafters exhibiting alongside national brands like Dilmah tea,

Lorna Jane activewear and Suzuki. “It’s great on the weekend to see all the various

women visit the show, from teenagers to grandmothers, mothers and daughters of

all ages and friends simply enjoying each other’s company” says Renee Murray from

NZME Events.

The expo features lots of new companies this year with everything from fashion and

accessories to organic products, delicious food, artisan crafts, unique businesses,

eco-friendly products and so much more.

Encouraging more

women to join

Only four percent of career firefighters

and 16 per cent of volunteer

firefighters are women but this is

slowly changing, chairperson of

Region Te Ihu Women’s Advisory

Network and Timaru senior fire fighter

Donna Lindsay said.

She said the move from using the

term firemen to firefighters has been a

positive step in recognising the work

women have been doing for years,

and FENZ is beginning to promote the

job to get more women involved.

“A lot of them see the fitness side,

especially the upper body strength, as

a bit of a barrier.”

“There has been, in Auckland and

hopefully Christchurch, little boot

camps in eight week blocks to help

people get up to speed with their

fitness and strength but that’s only a

part of the job.”

Lindsay said the work of the fire

service is more community-based

such as education at A&P shows and

in schools, and supporting at call outs

such as road traffic incidents.

Some brigades also take on childcare

volunteers to look after the firefighters

children when they are called to a job.

Most women would find something

within Fire and Emergency that would

make them want to join whether

it’s team building, community work,

talking – it’s not always fighting fires.”

It’s a very rewarding job and we need

the students and young people out

there to realise it is a possibility when

they start looking at careers.”

What home buyers should know

about insurance

For most Kiwis, your home is probably

the single biggest purchase you’ll ever

make. It’s a stressful process and it makes

sense that you’d want to secure insurance

to protect yourselves and your new home

from natural disaster, fire or any other

accidental events.

Real Estate Authority (REA) chief

executive Kevin Lampen-Smith, says:

“Adding ‘insurance’ near the top of your

checklist when hunting for a house is

now very important as the insurance

market is changing. A bank or lender

will want proof that you have arranged

property insurance before settlement,

even if you have conditional pre-approval

with your finances”.

To work out if a property can be

insured, contact different insurance

companies to get a quote. It can also be a

good idea to talk to an insurance broker.

They are independent insurance experts,

who work for you and are not attached

to an insurance company. They will give

you advice on what might be best for

your situation – identifying risks and

recommending cost-effective solutions.

“If you already have contents insurance,

get in touch with your insurer first to see

if they’ll offer you property insurance,”

says Lampen Smith.

Insurers often ask lots of questions

about your personal insurance history

and whether you (or anyone who will be

living at the property) have any criminal

convictions. “This is because they want

to be sure that you are a ‘good risk’, especially

since this will be your first home.

Having an existing relationship with an

insurer means that you have already been

assessed in this way,” Lampen-Smith

says.

An insurer will want to know as much

as possible about the property you want

to buy – its address, age, condition, size

and the materials it is made from. If the

house is being sold by a licensed real

estate agent, they should be able to help

you out with this information. “You can

ask the agent if the property is currently

insured and whether there have been any

issues with the property that could affect

its chances of being reinsured in the

future,” Lampen-Smith says.

“If you are aware of other risks to the

property that an insurer is unlikely to

know about, such as landslip issues –

even if there has not been any damage

to the home yet – you need to tell the

insurer when applying for a quote or for

cover. For example, if the house is in an

area that has been flooded before, an

insurer may limit or exclude any cover

for flood damage. If this is the case,

it’s better to know as early as possible,”

Lampen-Smith says.

“You can contact the Earthquake

Commission (EQC) directly to see what

information they might have on record

regarding potential damage to the property

from natural disasters.”

“I also suggest seeking legal advice

before signing a sale and purchase agreement

as you may need to make confirmation

of insurance an important condition

of your offer,” says Lampen-Smith.

There are a few different types of insurance

– ‘sum insured’ is the most common

in New Zealand.

The Insurance

Council of New

Zealand (ICNZ)

has a great guide to

house and contents

insurance, which

runs through the

options.

Insurance companies

are reassessing

how they cover

coastal or clifftop

properties or

properties in low

lying areas that may suffer from seawater

inundation due to the increasing risk of

environmental damage or rising sea levels.

This means that the cost of premiums

may increase, exclusions may be added,

or insurance cover may be withdrawn for

some properties as the risk changes. EQC

doesn’t cover damage to land from coastal

erosion (although it does cover storm

and flood damage to land) or damage to

residential structures or contents from

storms, floods or coastal erosion.

“While earthquake damage is covered

by EQC, you must have private home

insurance first to qualify for it,” Lampen-Smith

says. The premium you pay is

broken down into the cover that goes to

the company and a levy that goes to EQC

and Fire and Emergency NZ. From 1 July

2019, EQC no longer covers contents –

affecting policy holders on the anniversary

date of their existing policy, which

is generally the annual renewal date, or if

you take out a new policy.

“If an insurer agrees to cover a property

you wish to buy, let your lender know

immediately. You will need the insurance

to start on settlement day, when

the property officially becomes yours,

even if you aren’t moving in that day. In

most cases you can set the insurance up

around 6–8 weeks before you settle –

arranging it early means one less thing to

do close to your settlement day.”

“If you can’t find an insurer willing to

insure the house you are keen to buy,

it may be safer to walk away. If you do

find an insurer for the property, make

sure you read and understand the policy.

And, don’t leave any insurance matters

to the last minute or fail to read the fine

details in documents the insurer sends

you once cover has been arranged,” says

Lampen-Smith.

Knowing what could happen

if you can’t complete a sale

Life can sometimes take an unexpected

turn when you’re buying a house. Knowing

what could happen to your deposit

and sale and purchase agreement if your

circumstances suddenly change and you

are unable to complete the deal will leave

you in a much stronger position.

“There are many “what-ifs” to consider

when buying a home and I urge you to

talk through your concerns with your

lawyer or conveyancer as soon as your

circumstances change,” says Real Estate

Authority (REA) chief executive, Kevin

Lampen-Smith.

“A sale and purchase agreement is a

legally binding contract between you and

the seller, which becomes unconditional

once the allocated time for meeting

your conditions has been reached,” says

Lampen-Smith.

“Once the agreement for sale and

purchase becomes unconditional, then

you not only don’t get your deposit back,

but also face the likelihood of having

to purchase the property – even if you

can’t afford to – or having to cancel the

agreement and be sued for any loss the

seller suffers as a result of you failing to

settle the sale. So, if your circumstances

suddenly change, you’ll need to speak to

your lawyer as soon as possible.”

Getting finances sorted to buy a property

isn’t easy, but understanding the

different deposits when you buy a house

can help. There are two different kinds of

deposits – the deposit you pay when you

make an offer and your bank deposit.

A buyer will usually be required to pay

a deposit when the sale and purchase

agreement is signed by both parties. The

deposit paid is often about 10 per cent of

the total price you are offering – you can

negotiate a different rate if you need to –

and is usually held in a trust account by

the real estate agent. The real estate agent

takes their commission fee out of this

amount when the agreement becomes

unconditional and the remaining balance

goes to the seller.

When you arrange a home loan with a

bank, you must have a certain amount of

funds to use as a deposit – your bank deposit.

This deposit will more than likely

be different from the amount your sale

and purchase agreement states that you

must pay the seller. For example, your

bank may need you to have 20 per cent

of the purchase price available as a bank

deposit in order to secure your mortgage,

even if you only have to pay the seller a

10 per cent deposit.

“When drawing up a sale and purchase

agreement, you can include conditions of

the sale, such as a title search, valuation,

LIM report, obtaining finance, obtaining

insurance and builder’s inspection,”

Lampen-Smith says.

“Including conditions can really help

– you can even negotiate your sale and

purchase deposit.”

“If you find that you need extra time to

complete any conditions of the purchase,

you must speak to your lawyer or conveyancer

immediately. They will negotiate

with the seller through their real

estate agent or lawyer or conveyancer,”

Lampen-Smith says.

“Any changes to the conditions will

need to be added to the sale and purchase

agreement and signed off by you

and the seller. If your conditions are not

able to be met, eg, the building fails the

property inspection, then you may be

able to cancel the agreement and then

your deposit will be refunded to you.”

“It’s very important that you speak to a

lawyer before finalising your offer conditions

so that they adequately protect you

if something that you find out about the

property during the conditional period is

not to your satisfaction,” Lampen-Smith

says.

“There is potential that defaulting on

a sale, because of finances, could affect

future borrowing. Talk this through with

your lawyer and it would also be wise

to seek advice from a qualified financial

adviser. A financial adviser may also be

able to talk you through the pros and

cons of income protection insurance for

situations such as sickness, disability,

unemployment and death.”

“In life, there are so many things we

cannot be sure of, but it’s always worth

doing your homework and seeking solid

professional advice when purchasing a

home.”

Buying a property at auction

If you’re keen on a property that’s going to auction, preparation

is everything. A successful bid means you are immediately

committed to buy the property; you cannot seek legal advice,

arrange finance or even get the property valued or inspected

when the auction is over.

That means you need to do all your

due diligence in advance of auction day.

Before the auction (usually after you’ve

viewed the property), the real estate agent

working for the seller should provide you

with a copy of the terms and Contract of

Sale, which sets out what chattels will be

included with the property. This document

will also tell you the amount of the deposit

to be paid by the successful bidder, and

when the balance of the payment must

be made. These documents should be

checked by your lawyer.

You should consider having the property

checked (preferably by a qualified

inspector who has professional indemnity

insurance and carries out their work

in accordance with the New Zealand

Property Inspection Standards and

obtain an up-to-date Land Information

Memorandum (LIM) from the local

council. It’s a good idea to get a valuation

of the property, especially as you are likely

to require one if you need a loan. Some

websites provide free estimated market

values that may be useful.

There’s a lot to

take in at an auction

and it’s easy to

feel overwhelmed.

If you can, go

along to one as

an observer to see

how the process

works before you

actually want to

buy. Remember

that the auctioneer

is working for the

seller and they want

to get the highest

price possible for

the property.

At an auction,

the auctioneer will read the terms and

conditions of the sale aloud and announce

if a reserve price has been set. They must

also state whether the seller has reserved

the right to bid during the auction. This

is called ‘vendor bidding’ and it is only

allowed under strict circumstances, such

as when the property being auctioned has

a reserve price; when the reserve price has

not yet been met; and the auctioneer has

made it clear that the bid being made is a

vendor bid. They must do this by saying,

‘this is a vendor bid’ rather than using any

jargon.

Auctioneers sometimes use vendor

bids as a way to start off the bidding, or

to move the bidding towards the reserve

price. Vendor bids can be made by the

auctioneer, or another person working on

behalf of the seller, such as a real estate

agent. An auctioneer can also use a preauction

offer to start the bidding.

The auction continues until there is only

one bidder left. At that stage, if the reserve

price is reached or beaten, the highest

bidder will be the successful buyer. If the

reserve price isn’t reached, the seller can

tell the auctioneer to stop the auction

without selling the property.

If the auction is stopped without a

sale, the highest bidder may have the

opportunity to negotiate with the seller

(via their agent) after the auction. If this

happens, the terms and conditions of

the auction no longer apply and you can

negotiate new ones.

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!

Property Market Update

with Mike Pero Real Estate

Buyers require

more information

Lending institutions now require more

information before approving finance.

Attaining insurance cover is also not as

straight forward.

This has led to more astute home buyers

who are looking beyond the superficial

and requesting details on the condition of

a property, before committing to buy.

“Purchasers are seeking far more detail

than in the past,” says Joe Brankin who

with wife Tracey, are branch owners of

Mike Pero Real Estate, West Melton and

Rolleston.

Joe says many buyers are taking time

when viewing a property and looking to

see if it has any faults.

“While buyers have always examined

a property before purchasing, they now

want more details about its condition,”

explains Joe.

It is advisable for sellers to deal with any

problems within their property, before

listing on the market. Sorting maintenance

jobs which have been hanging around for

a while, is always a good idea says Joe.

Doing so not only aids a future sale but

also minimises stress at a time when a

seller is looking to move on and may also

be house hunting. Sorting a problem to

ensure a sale at this time, can be another

hassle while challenging the home owner

at a busy time.

Fixing issues early is also important as

potential buyers may be deterred when

first visiting the property if defects are

visible.

It is wise to sort minor issues such as

cracked windows, dripping taps, peeling

paint or lifting floor coverings and more

importantly, deal with existing serious

matters such as plumbing leaks, weather

tightness problems and failed structural

components. Early attention to such

repairs will help make the selling process a

better experience. It may also avoid having

Joe and Tracey Brankin.

a purchaser cancel their contract due to

maintenance issues being identified during

an inspection.

Tidiness around the property is also

significant to avoid any distractions from

the look of your exterior as an untidy

garden may put potential buyers off.

Joe says buyers come under pressure

from lending institutions and insurers,

who want to know the home is sound

and weatherproof. They will request

information about the type and condition

of its features, such as the windows,

plumbing, wiring, wall linings, floor

coverings and appliances.

When applying for finance, a valuation

may be required along with a building

report. Building inspectors now use

sophisticated technology to identify faults,

with their reports quite detailed. While

a second hand home will have wear and

tear, what is of concern is whether there is

deterioration which might be a potential

issue in the future.

That doesn’t appeal to the villa crowd.

But many people dream of a home in a

new suburb.

There are many other advantages --

such as being able to customise the home

before it’s built. Buyers love it that their

build guarantee covers most things and

there’s little maintenance to do for the first

10 years.

There are a long list of reasons some

people dream of buying new.

They include:

• Current Building Code requirements

specify a higher standard of insulation

and glazing than you can expect in an

older home, which makes your new home

warmer in winter and cooler in summer,

meaning cheaper to run. In addition

there has been a vast improvement in the

quality and technology of construction

materials over the last decade.

• New homes are designed for modern

lifestyles with walk-in wardrobes, double

or triple car garaging, en suites and heat

pumps.

• Internal access garaging.

• Indoor-outdoor flow. Home builders

before the 1970s rarely thought about this.

• Automatic pool covers and electric

curtains are included in a lot of new

homes, he says.

• In a new subdivision you’re not going

to have five cross-leased small homes next

door to your architecturally designed fivebedroom

dream home, he says.

• New purpose-built shopping and

service centres cater for the modern life.

• New schools can be popular. New

schools are being designed with “Modern

Learning Environments”, which are

considered better layouts for 21st-century

learning.

Another important factor is it’s easier

to get a mortgage. New Reserve Bank of

New Zealand loan to value (LVR) ratio

restrictions from October 1 don’t relate

to new homes. Likewise the KiwiSaver

HomeStart grant is doubled for first time

buyers.

When it comes to new apartment

buildings they’re built to a higher

standard of earthquake/fire proofing and,

hopefully, are no longer leaky.

There are, of course, disadvantages to

buying new. Not everyone wants to wait

six or 12 months to move into their home.

Other downsides include:

• Borrowing to cover the progress

payments is more complex than taking

out a mortgage on an existing property.

• Builders and developers can go broke,

leaving the buyer in an awkward position.

• With some new homes the buyer

effectively needs to become a project

manager.

• You have to deal with council for

building and sometimes resource consent.

• The location may be further from the

centre than you wanted.

• If it’s infill housing you might have a

cross lease situation that some people find

tricky.

• There are often teething problems with

a new build.

• You won’t get a quaint tree-lined

street.

• Your section will most likely be

smaller than that of an existing home.

• Fences, paths and landscaping might

need to be added at a cost.
