Costly

severance

payments

to council

employees

• By Devon Bolger

THE DISTRICT council spent more

than $165,000 on severance payments

to employees over the last year.

Three separate payments were made

between June this year and last totalling

$132,635, $25,208 and $7875. The

district council also incurred $32,000

in legal fees dealing with the matters.

Chief executive David Ward said the

mediated severance payments relate to

employment relations processes conducted

with three individuals.

He said they are unable to provide

any information relating to the payments

because of this.

“Council is legally bound by its obligations

under the Privacy Act 1993 and

the Employment Relations Act 2000

not to reveal any severance information

that would identify any individual

or make public their personal and

private employment matters,” he said.

The district council made no severance

payments in the previous year.

The information was released in

the district council’s Annual Report

that summarises its performance and

activities over the last year.

The Local Government Act 2002

requires the district council to disclose

any staff severance payments to the

public.

SELWYN TIMES

Nora Guise, 6, has begun a journey to beat cancer. She travelled

to Texas recently to start potentially life-saving treatment.

The family was initially told they would need to meet the

full cost of treatment ($220,000) before anything would start.

However, they were notified recently they could opt into a

payment plan and come up with the rest later.

It is incredible to see the efforts of the community to help

raise the funds Nora needs and we have dedicated all of page 3

to the Rolleston resident.

There is some positive news to share as well with Nora being

back at school now.

The family is feeling hopeful and excited and will head back

to the United States next month where the treatment will

commence and we intend to follow their journey.

Nora’s first step

to beat cancer completed

• By Devon Bolger

SIX-YEAR-OLD Nora Guise

has got over her first hurdle in a

bid to get potentially life-saving

cancer treatment.

A successful first trip to the

United States means the Rolleston

resident will begin treatment

for her Hepatoblastoma, a rare

cancer of the liver, on November

11.

Nora has been accepted into a

CAR T cell trial in Texas which

is her last chance for a cure.

The family has been fundraising

for the $210,000 needed for

the treatment and have raised

more than $180,000 so far.

The financial team in Texas

has allowed them to use a payment

plan so they could begin

work on the CAR T cells.

The family recently returned

from their first trip to the United

States and Mrs Guise said it was

a success.

“We had a blood test and then

they will create the T cells from

that. I recieved an email last

week telling us they have begun

the testing phase and a tentative

treatment date could be made.”

BRAVE: Six-year-old Nora Guise travelled to Texas to

prepare for the treatment she will begin next month. ​

On November 11, Nora

will begin four days of

lymphodepleting chemotherapy

which lowers her white blood

cell count, she said.

“On November 15, the cells

will go in and they will boost

those white blood cells back up.”

The family will spend about

five weeks in Texas for the treatment

including chemotherapy.

Mrs Guise said they are feeling

incredibly hopeful and excited.

“While it does feel like we are

just waiting, it is nice to be home

and feeling normal again for a

little bit.”

It was Nora’s first time in

America and she had a lot of

fun, she said.

“It was nice to get our bearings

so when we do go back and we

are there for a month, it’s not all

brand new and also trying to

navigate a city I know nothing

A few days after the Guises

got back, Nora started back at

Clearview School.

“She loved it. She loves school

and it is such a nice safe place for

her. She can just be normal and

not the sick kid anymore.”

Army theme

to fundraiser

CLEARVIEW SCHOOL is

banding together in an epic

fundraising day for one of their

own – Nora Guise.

The school has planned

Nora’s Army Day where pupils

will go dressed in army-themed

clothing and will get a visit

from Burnham Military Camp

soldiers.

All funds raised from the

event will go towards the cost

of Nora’s CAR T cell treatment

in Texas.

Clearview School will also

host an auction in the evening

with nearly $40,000 worth of

donated goods.

Principal Rob Rush said:

“Raising the level of money

that’s required for Nora won’t

take a group of people, it’ll take

an army. We are all coming together

to leverage the size of our

school community so Nora can

get the treatment she needs.”

•Nora’s Army Day will be

held on November 1. The

auction will take place at

Pemberton in Prebbleton

from 7 to 10pm. Tickets cost

$40 and are available at the

Clearview School office.

Evidence for quarry hearings released

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

EXPERT evidence supporting

submitters’ views on the

hotly-debated plan to open a

quarry near Weedons has been

released ahead of next month’s

hearings.

Environment Canterbury

has published 27 reports

from some of the individuals,

businesses and community

groups set to present evidence for

and against

the proposed

quarry.

Evidence

has been

provided by

submitters

including the

city council,

Christchurch

Jolene Eagar

Airport,

New Zealand

Transport

Agency, Templeton Residents’

Association and Yaldhurst Rural

Residents’ Association.

The hearings on Fulton

Hogan’s application to

open a quarry on Dawsons,

Jones, Maddisons and

Curraghs Rd will start on

November 18.

Evidence has been released

from groups in support of

the quarry, including Aggregate

and Quarry Association of

New Zealand and Allied

Concrete.

Templeton Residents’

Association treasurer Jolene

Eagar is due to speak at the

hearings on behalf of the

association’s ‘no quarry subcommittee’.

The committee’s

evidence says if the quarry

application is approved, it will set

a “dangerous” precedent for the

future.

“The TRA received a very

strong message from residents

and businesses of Templeton and

its surrounding area, they were

here first and they have worked

hard to build happy, peaceful

lives. They do not want the proposed

quarry.”

The committee’s evidence

highlighted several concerns,

including the quarry’s potential

impact on water quality and

property values, as well as traffic

and noise.

However, evidence provided

by Aggregate and Quarrying

Association of New Zealand

The expert

evidence can

be viewed

on the ECan

website at

https://bit.

ly/2MOAUCK

chief executive Wayne Scott

said the quarry will benefit

Canterbury.

“Fulton Hogan is proposing

the best practice mitigation

measures for the site and has

developed a detailed quarry

rehabilitation plan. AQA is

supportive of Fulton Hogan’s

commitment to going beyond

compliance.”

Fulton Hogan has already

made a number of changes to its

plan before the hearings start.

They include no processing of

aggregates before 7am or after

8pm and there will be a limit of

800 truck movements per day.

The NZTA evidence covered a

range of issues, including traffic

congestion in the Dawsons Rd

area. It suggested installing electronic

signs warning motorists

not to use certain roads.

On behalf of the Canterbury

District Health Board, Stephen

Gordon Chiles’ evidence said

the proposed conditions do not

adequately

manage

noise from

off-site

trucks. He

made recommendations

including

imposing

a consent

condition

prohibiting Wayne Scott

trucks with

audible engine brakes from

entering the site.

Meanwhile, the number of

people speaking at the hearings

is still to be finalised. An ECan

spokeswoman said a schedule

will be available a week before

the hearings.

The hearings are due to take

place on November 18-22,

December 2- 6 and December

9-13.

Booth’s fight to get better

mental health services not over yet

• By Devon Bolger and Georgia

O’Connor-Harding

GEOFF BOOTH is not giving up

on his fight to get better mental

health services in Canterbury.

THe Greendale resident was

unsuccessful in his bid for a seat

on the Canterbury District Health

Board at the local body elections.

For nearly two years, he has

been battling to seek answers from

health authorities after losing his

21-year-old son Liam to suspected

suicide in 2017.

But his fight to get better mental

health care and to raise awareness

about suicide will continue.

Mr Booth is now planning to

create a national political party to

advocate for families who have lost

loved ones to suicides.

He said the party would be made

up of families affected by suicide.

Over the next couple of months,

Mr Booth will be looking at a

strategy, multi-media platforms to

launch the party on and securing

financial backing.

Mr Booth said if he can get the

political party “off the ground” he

believes he will have a good chance

at running at the next CDHB elections.

Mr Booth said he felt the reason

he wasn’t elected was due to not

having a large enough profile –

compared to well-known elected

members Jo Kane and James

Gough.

“It was a tough ask but it was

worth trying to see whether I

could get in. I am certainly keen to

have another try,” he said.

He said this term the CDHB

needs to get more services and facilities

in place so people can get the

wrap-around services they need.

“The time for talk is over, they

need to put boots on the ground.”

It was reported in August the

number of suicides in New Zealand

has reached its highest-ever

level, with 685 people dying in the

year to June 30.

The statistics released by Chief

Coroner Judge Deborah Marshall

showed an increase in the number

of young people dying – especially

those aged 15 to 19-years-old as

numbers rose from 53 to 73.

FIGHT: Geoff Booth has been

unsuccessful in his bid for a

place in the CDHB but is now

planning a national political

party to advocate for families

who have lost loved ones to

suicide.

WHERE TO GET

about your own or

In Brief

ELECTRICAL FIRE

A dryer cord sparked a fire at a

house in Rolleston on Wednesday

morning. Lincoln and Rolleston

fire crews were called to the

fire on Springston-Rolleston

was damaged after it caught on

fire on a roadside. The Rakaia

volunteer fire brigade was called

to the incident on Rakaia Selwyn

Rd at about 10am on Monday.

The tractor was “well engulfed”

by the time firefighters arrived.

FINAL ELECTION RESULTS

Final results for the local body

elections were released on

Thursday. There were no changes

to those who had been elected

based on preliminary results.

Sophie McInnes has secured a

spot representing the Selwyn

Your Local Views

Patti Mackay responds to last

week’s Selwyn Times article

on traffic lights planned at the

Lowes Rd and Tennyson St

intersection in Rolleston

It seems a waste of money to

install traffic lights at a roundabout

that works perfectly well.

There are so many business

and domestic driveways in and

out that would be affected and

this will only create a backlog of

motor vehicles, which will create

some very impatient driving.

Perhaps create a right-ofway

for pedestrians to cross if

deemed necessary. There are

other intersections which need

improving and money is better

spent on those.

Janet and Hugh Macleod

respond to last week’s Selwyn

Times article on the 54 objections

made to a liquor store

application in Tai Tapu

We strongly object to the

liquor store as we feel it is not

required, there are already two

liquor stores in Lincoln and

one in Halswell as well as liquor

available at the supermarkets

and local pubs.

It will spoil the character of

Tai Tapu village.

Overconfidence and scraped nose

CONFIDENCE IS a wonderful

thing.

Vittoria’s certainly getting that

in spades and it’s impacting our

walks.

For example, when she and

I took Mum’s dogs for a beach

walk on Saturday, she was happy

to walk one of the dogs both

there and back by herself without

complaint.

Good right?

However, that same level of I’ma-professional-walker

confidence

led to some serious grumpiness

and a decent scrape on her nose

on Sunday.

We all spent that night in

Akaroa and we’d managed to

arrive before it stated raining, so

we took the chance to wander the

Francophile waterfront before it

got all grey and wet.

Walking up to the lighthouse

was perfection. Vittoria sat calmly

in her pram, made excited noises

at passing dogs and seemingly

enjoyed the view.

By the time we arrived, her

composure was slipping and she

was practically jumping out in

desperation to walk on her own

feet.

As soon as I got her out though,

she turned and sped off too fast.

She barely got two feet before

tripping over her own boots and

faceplanting into the concrete. A

scaring me kind of faceplant.

Although her poor wee

nose got all scraped up and

bloody, I’m glad that was the

worst of it.

In spite of that, she was more

than happy to sprint about

concreted areas and then run

downhill and give me more heart

attacks.

Trying to hold her hand

was no good, she’d just

growl at me and do her best

washing machine impression

before stamping off as if to

say: “No, I can do it!”.

An ultimatum was just met

with more running away, so I just

had to wrestle her back into the

pram. Literally.

Let’s see if a scab on her nose

will chill the over confidence. I

doubt it.

So, quick update on the cot and

potty training efforts before we go.

The potty is still terrifying, so

no real movement there (ha, see

what I did there?)

On the other hand, the cot

training is going great guns. I’m

getting a whole night sleep without

tiny limbs in my eye socket

or ribs.

On Tuesday morning Vittoria

jumped out of bed, wandered

over to me and Laura’s bed, and

jumped up for a cuddle before

getting up. It’s cute when I’m

already awake and it’s not 3am.

To be 100 per cent honest, I

kind of miss the co-sleeping.

LABOUR WEEKEND

Exhibition Awards Announced

A very high calibre of artwork attracted over

1000 visitors to Darfield’s Rec Centre for the

38th annual exhibition. The coveted Orion

Premier Award went to Darfield resident Soon-

Lee Spicer for her linocut “Chrysanthemum and

Quinces”. Judge Fiona Simpson praised it as an

“exquisitely rendered still-life…reminiscent of

traditional Japanese woodcuts”.

Ms Spicer commented: “To win this award is

an incredible encouragement to my art, and

hopefully all artists here. Thank you to Orion,

to the organisers, volunteers, and supporters

of Darfield Artweek, and to this community who

has been so encouraging and positive about my

work”.

David Atkinson’s “Jar” won the MCAC Friends

Award combining its “subtle colouring,

significant form and striking salt glaze to create

a very elegant sculptural work”. Auckland artist,

Gavin Chai received the Darfield Dental Award

for his “small yet sophisticated work that draws

the viewer in with subtle colours and a strong

composition”. Last year’s Premier Award winner,

Henry Turner, received the Local Businesses

Award for his watercolour, “Yellow Arches”.

The Survus Consultants Award went to Steve

James for his “Spring Snow”, an oil painting “in

the tradition of Canterbury landscape painters

such as Archibald Nicoll and AA Deans”. Other

award winners include Darfield resident Jan

Mitchell, West Melton artist Helen Stevenson,

Christchurch artist Philip Beadle, and Tai Tapu

printmaker/photographer John Maillard.

The Hon. Amy Adams, MP for Selwyn, officially

opened Darfield Artweek for an appreciative

crowd of approximately 150 artists and friends

of the Malvern Community Arts Council on Friday,

11 October, who had first viewing of 298 exhibits

by 138 artists.

“Our thanks for the success of Darfield Artweek

go to many local volunteers and supporters,

our Premier Award sponsor, Orion, and a large

group of business sponsors, including Survus

Consultants and Darfield Dental”, Malvern

Community Arts Council Chair, Philip Baldwin

said. “In particular the Artweek Committee, ably

chaired by Lorraine Natusch, did a fabulous job

of organising the whole event.”

1000 natives planted

on Sheffield dairy farm

A SHEFFIELD dairy

farm got a hand from 70

volunteers to transform

the property into a

sanctuary for native

biodiversity.

Dairy farmers Jack

and Joanne van der Salm

hosted the team of volunteers

at their 190 hectare

farm last weekend.

The group included staff

from Landcare Research,

Antarctica New Zealand,

ESR, Aqualinc and My

Milk.

The volunteers planted

a carefully selected range

of 1000 native plants along

the banks of a stream

running through the van

der Salm’s farm.

It was the first of a

number of planting events

planned at the farm which

will see the length of the

stream planted with natives

over the next three

years.

The event was organised

by the Te Ara Kākāriki

Trust which is working to

restore native vegetation

in the district and create

corridors of plantings that

will attract more birdlife

to the area.

Mr van der Salm said

he has always wanted to

carry out planting along

the waterway, both to

beautify the farm and to

create a habitat for birds

and insects.

Trust ecologist Alan

Macdonald said as well

as providing an attractive

habitat for birds, the planting

will help to improve

the stream’s ecosystem by

cooling the temperature

which will increase as the

plants grow.

“All the plants added to

the farm are native plants

that would previously

have naturally occurred

in this area. The plants are

eco-sourced from local

nurseries meaning they

will be tolerant to the

weather conditions here,”

he said.

Our People

SELWYN TIMES

Shane Epiha

Pedalling new pathways through

Leeston’s Shane Epiha

has secured himself a

seat representing the

Ellesmere Ward at the

district council table.

The new councillor

talked to Devon Bolger

about his life and interest

in politics

Tell me about your family?

I live in Leeston with my wife

Anna and our two children.

Amiria who is about two and a

half and Hana who is six-anda-half-months

old. My youngest

from my first marriage, Lilly,

who is 13 also lives with us. I

do have two older girls who live

in Whangarei, Alisa, 17, and

Jade, 15. Lilly, actually moved in

with us recently and started at

Ellesmere College on Monday

How long have you lived in

Selwyn for?

I have lived here for about twoand-a-half-years

now.

Where were you living before

then?

I was living in Perth, Australia.

I was working in mining and

development. I then started my

own business in commercial

tyres and ran that for five years.

That’s where Anna and I met.

She is originally from Leeston

PASSION: Shane Epiha at SuperTyre where he works as a business development manager.

so we had our youngest Amiria

and then decided to move back

there to raise our family I did

some local contracting work

and then went on to become a

business development manager

for a company in Christchurch,

SuperTyre, where I still work

today.

What do you like about living

in Selwyn?

Well, I didn’t at first. It was

cold getting off that plane from

Perth. I did end up going to

work for a local contractor here

in Leeston. I learned some skills

on the digger and quickly got to

meet a lot of the locals. I actually

worked across the whole district

in the year I worked there and

got to meet a lot of the people

and fell in love with the land

and how hard people work

here.

Why did you decide to enter

politics?

It was really the opportunity

to further develop initiatives

that I’m currently doing. It was

my wife Anna who kind of said

to me: ‘You would be good at

this Shane because you’re

already working with youth,

you’re already developing

pathways for them.’ What

I found valuable about

volunteering my time is that I

got a hell of a lot out of it too. I

am hoping that the skills I got

from that and also the good

feelings I got from that will

carry through to the council.

Getting on to a platform where

I can help more people is really

the reason why I put my hand

up to be a councillor. I have also

been on the executive committee

in region four for the Road

Transport Association NZ. I

have been involved in transport

over the last six years so I am

actively promoting road safety

and education for all road users.

It is something I am hoping to

continue with at the council.

a seat on district council

What are some of the

initiatives?

I am currently in discussions

with Ellesmere College about

helping to fill the network

and forming pathways for

the students in their gateway

programme. I’m in discussions

at the moment about bringing

them through into my network

in the transport industry. The

plan there is you get them in for

some work experience and give

them a taste of the industry. It’s

so important at a young age to

do that so they can see if they

actually do like it and whether

it could be a potential career

for them. That’s my intention

anyway. I give motivational

talks at the Ministry of Social

Development to job seekers in

Ashburton, Hornby and Shirley.

I also talk to young people on

the LSV courses they have at

Burnham Military Camp and

attend the expo they put on there.

Outside of work and politics,

what are your interests?

Family is the main thing at

the moment. Cycling was a big

passion of mine when I came

to Canterbury to live. I loved it.

It’s just a great team sport, it’s

not dependant on anyone’s size

or shape. I even started a youth

cycling team here in Leeston

a few years ago. So yes it was

cycling but now the number one

is family because I have less time

now and any spare time I do have

will be mostly spent with them.

Can you tell me more about

the cycling team?

I started the team when I first

moved here, it was a junior team.

There were about 12 or 13 kids

involved and we got some help

from the local club who gave us

a van. We borrowed grandad’s

trailer and every weekend we

would throw the bikes on the

trailer, put the kids in the van

RIDE: Shane

Epiha at a

meeting of

the youth

cycling club

he started in

Leeston.

and go bike ride around the

district. I did that for about a

year and really enjoyed it. There

are a lot of themes within a

cycling team that directly relate

to life. That’s what I teach the

young people, that a 16km lap

around Leeston is essentially

like a 16km map of life. They

struggle at the start and they’re a

bit uncomfortable but then their

confidence builds and when they

finish they get this feeling of

jubilation because of what they

have accomplished.

What are you looking forward

to most about getting started on

the council?

I don’t want to just give a

generic answer but it is about

helping the community first

and foremost so I would say

I am looking forward to the

opportunity for professional

development to be able to further

help my community. I am also

looking forward to continuing

the initiatives I have begun

already.

What do you want to

achieve?

I have three main focuses –

jobs for our kids, road safety and

community well-being. Those

are the three things that I am

currently working on and I feel

they flow directly into my new

position as a councillor and it

gives me a better platform to

help more people. I care about

community development and the

welfare of those living within it

and I intend to be a voice for the

people.

Darfield beaten by Cheviot after batting collapse

• By Jacob Page

CHEVIOT HELD on to beat

Darfield by 34 runs at Ohoka’s

Mandeville Sports Grounds as

rain continued to interrupt the

first few weeks of the Canterbury

Country premier 45-over

competition on Saturday.

Only one of the four scheduled

games was possible after heavy

rain on Friday night left many

grounds too wet for play for

week three fixtures.

Ironically, it was Darfield’s

first game of the season and after

winning the toss and electing to

field they restricted Cheviot to

168 for nine from their 45 overs.

A battling 50 for Cheviot’s

Will Smith had propelled his

team from 113 for 7 to the eventual

total.

He found good support from

No 9 batsman Scott Burnett,

who added 23.

The Darfield bowlers found

earlier success but lacked the big

wicket which would have made

their chase much easier.

Nick Jenkins was the best of

the Darfield bowlers taking 3

for 27 while Liam Foulkes also

chipped in with two wickets.

Darfield’s chase started wellenough

with opener Robbie

Foulkes making 39.

At 74 for two, Darfield had

their chance to push for victory

but the middle-order offered little

substance.

The only meaningful contribution

was Toby Kars’ 26 at No 5

as all his teammates after him

could not make double figures.

Darfield lost their final eight

wickets for 60 runs.

Cheviot’s right-arm quicks

Jack Hyde and Charlie Sidey

each took three wickets.

Darfield captain Mike Pauling

said dropped catches, including

dropping Smith twice did not help

while some soft dismissals with

the bat hampered their chase.

“There was definitely some

rustiness there and things we

can improve on.

“It felt like that game got away

from us,” he said.

Week four fixtures

Lincoln v Darfield at Lincoln

Domain

Southbrook v Cheviot at

Southbrook Domain

Leeston-Southbridge v

Oxford at Mandeville Sports

Grounds

Weedons v Seefton at

Points: Cheviot 20, Southbrook

16, Weedons 16, Oxford

12, Darfield 8, Leeston-Southbridge

FRUSTRATION: Darfield captain Mike Pauling said the team

was rusty druing their 34 run loss to Cheviot at Ohoka’s

Mandeville Sports Grounds on Saturday.

SPEED: Lincoln’s Jacob

Douglas made the

most of his time in Italy

coming away with a win.

Win for cyclist Christie

Silverware for young karters

• By Gordon Findlater

LINCOLN KARTER Jacob

Douglas and his Canterbury

teammate Louis Sharpe returned

home from Italy with silverware.

Jacob, 14, and Louis, 12,

were two of eight New Zealand

karters who joined over 400 of

their contemporaries from 35

countries at the 17th annual

ROK Cup Superfinal event at the

Lonato track in the north-east of

the country.

The event is organised

each year by Italian engine

manufacturer Vortex.

New Zealand has been

represented at the event for the

past six years but Douglas’ win

in the Junior ROK class B final –

the Bridgestone Trophy race – is

a first.

This year it was a case of

third time lucky for Jacob who

competed in the Mini Rok class

in the previous two years, in

spite of the young Lincoln ace

just missing out on a place in the

A final – the cut-off was 34 and

after the heat races Jacob was

ranked 37.

He soon worked his way to the

front in the Bridgestone Trophy

final race before racing away to a

sizable advantage which saw him

cross the finish line more than

2sec in front of Australian Luke

Pink.

Meanwhile, Louis was to

continue a strong campaign in

Italy after a breakthrough win of

his own in the Mini ROK class

B final at the Autumn Trophy

meeting at the same venue a

week earlier.

LINCOLN CYCLIST Henrietta

Christie made the most of her

rival’s misfortune to claim the

Calder Stewart cycle series

during the final round at

Leeston on Sunday.

Lying third going into Sunday’s

Hell of the South 108km

women’s race Christie (Velo

Project) needed to finish in the

top five to have a chance of overall

series victory.

Women’s series leader Kate

McIlroy was absent due to work

commitments and her Lightworkx

Development teammate

Amy Hollamby who was lying

second was ill, resulted in her

not racing on Sunday and losing

her chance to ride for the series

title.

Hollamby, who had been in

Bali last week for a work-related

conference opted not to race

after becoming unwell in Saturday’s

race with a heart rate that

that was very high even when

she wasn’t exerting herself. It

was won by Hannah Bayard.

With a serious chance of overall

series success Velo Project

women’s team manager Andrew

Williams was very pleased with

the way Christie and the team

rode. “It’s a great result for the

team and Henrietta,” he said.

“As a team we’ve worked really

hard together through the

series to help put Henrietta in

the position she was in, so it was

great to see her and the team

deliver today.”

The women’s Hell of the

South was won by Christie’s

Velo Project teammate Elyse

Fraser with an impressive solo

ride, going alone early on and

finishing almost 5min ahead of

second placed Jojo Bauer (Cycle

Christie won the bunch

sprint to claim third and claim

the overall series to add to her

under-19 series jersey, coming

home 5min after Bauer.

McIlroy held onto her series

jersey while Velo Project was

the women’s series winning

2019 Triennial

Election Results

Final results have confirmed Selwyn Mayor Sam Broughton has been returned for a second term

following the 2019 Selwyn District Council elections.

Three new councillors have been elected and eight councillors from the previous council have been

returned.

Mr Broughton says he’s excited about the opportunity to continue leading on behalf of the district

and welcomed the three new councillors.

“It’s cool to have three new faces around the Council table for the life that they will bring and the

outside voices they will contribute to the discussions we have been having.”

The new Council’s priority is to meet and get to know each other and to deliver on the major

projects the Council has committed to on behalf of the community, he says.

“Through the election all elected members receive a lot of feedback on how we’re doing. It’s good

to know we all love living in Selwyn and we will continue to look to improve in areas where people

see that need.”

Fresh water management and provision of safe drinking water to communities will continue to be a

focus, he says.

“We will be meeting government legislative requirements, however we will continue to uphold our

Selwyn identity and support finding local solutions to local problems.”

The final result for the Selwyn District Council elections held on Saturday 12 October is as follows.

Rebuilding bikes and lives

A new lease of life for old bikes is helping Selwyn school students,

prisoners and people reintegrating on release from prison.

The Council has been working with Pathway—a Canterbury charity

that works with people in prison and helps them reintegrate on

release— and with Selwyn high schools to give old bikes a new life.

The Council’s solid waste team provides bicycles that have been

taken to the Pines Resource Recovery Park to Pathway, which

teaches people in the youth unit at Christchurch Men’s Prison to

refurbish them. The bikes are then gifted to people Pathways Trust

works with after their release.

The Council has given around 60 bikes to Pathways. A further 14

bikes have also been given to Ellesmere College and Lincoln High

School for students to work on.

“Being able to have the bikes repaired and reused, instead of being

shredded for scrap metal recycling was a preferred outcome in line

with Council’s aims in our Waste Minimisation Plan to reduce waste

and reuse items,” Council Solid Waste Manager Andrew Boyd says.

“And the positive social outcome with prisoners was the icing on

the cake.”

The bicycle project is a great way to help people in prison learn

transferable work skills, purpose and self-esteem, Pathway

employer and volunteer coordinator Renee Jones says.

“The guys love taking something which could’ve been thrown away

and bringing it back to life and giving it a second chance.”

The bikes help people on release to get to medical appointments,

job interviews and work placements, reconnect with family and

friends or just get to the supermarket, Ms Jones says.

The Council has also worked with container company and Council

supplier Royal Wolf, which has given Pathway a special Wolf Lock

security container to store the bikes and parts.

“It was our way of giving back. What Pathway does helping

rehabilitate prisoners coming out of prison, it’s such a worthy cause.

They were in need of a container and that was something we could

do to help out.”

Wine

Chardonnays to keep an eye out for

• By Mark Henderson

THIS WEEK’S assortment is a

group of 2017 chardonnays.

With Mr McLaren away travelling,

McLaren jun joined my

regular panelist, Mr Collins, and

me to taste through a range from

across the regions.

A grapefruit note came up in

one of the early wines, and once

that character was identified,

I kept finding it in most of the

wines.

The power of suggestion? A

character of the vintage? Or perhaps

my succumbing to cognitive

bias?

More study will be needed.

2017 Mahi Alchemy Single

Vineyard Marlborough

Chardonnay

Price: $39.90

Rating: Excellent

Gunflint, struck match, powerful

peach and melon fruit, citrus

with time. At first, playing in the

sweet and sour spectrum with

grapefruit in focus and biscuity/

oatmeal notes, but this fattens up

nicely, aeration adding a wisp of

buttered popcorn.

All the while, there’s delicious

drive and crispness with a

delightfully long, fresh and tangy

finish.

www.mahiwine.co.nz

2017 Hunters Offshoot

Marlborough Chardonnay

Price: $34.99

Rating: Very good to excellent

Grapefruit, struck match, fresh

baguette, a little toastiness. Powerful

in the mouth, the lemony

citrus notes play off grilled nuts

and toasty elements, with stonefruit

and apple joining in with

aeration. Crisp, salivatory, there’s

a real lip-smacking element to

the acidity.

Tightens a little over time,

but a good swirl helps to coax it

back.

www.hunters.co.nz

2017 Tohu Whenua Awa

Single Vineyard Awatere

Valley Chardonnay

Price: $39.99

Rating: Very good to excellent

Struck match, burnt toast,

warm baguette, grapefruit.

Showing its youthful side, yet

also its richness, texture and

supple acidity. Grilled nuts,

caramel, some fruit pith bittersweet

elements and a petrol-like

note.

This becomes more zesty with

aeration but seems to be holding

its cards close to its chest.

www.tohuwines.co.nz

2017 Craggy Range Les

Beaux Cailloux Gimblett

Gravels Chardonnay

Price: $150

Rating: Excellent

Bonfire smoke, spices, peach

almost a deeper register, developing

perfume and struck

match. This could be perceived

as underpowered but there’s

quiet depth in the mouth. This

grows in texture, picking up

notes of orange peel, spice and

toffee, enlivened as the acidity

becomes more racy.

Elegant and with potential.

www.craggyrange.com

2017 Mahi Marlborough

Chardonnay

Price: $29

Rating: Good to very good

A little wild funkiness, wild

yeast, matchstick and spice lead.

Full and creamy entry with

toasty oak in support and just

when you think it might be a

little soft, the racy acidity floods

in, giving this a mouth-puckering

lift.

Quite linear through the

mouth — as the matchstick subsumes

a little cheesiness grows

— though just a little short on

the finish.

www.mahiwine.co.nz

2017 Pegasus Bay Waipara

Chardonnay

Price: $43

Rating: Very good to excellent

Powerful struck match, wood

smoke and toast notes, adding

lactic hints and white peach. Real

acid drive to this giving brisk

freshness, leading with a bittersweet

citrusy element reminding

me of grilled grapefruit.

Fragrant top notes and a long,

mellow finish.

Beautiful lawns

make a difference

to how your

home looks

A beautiful new lawn can really set off

your home and makes a huge difference to

how it looks.

Canterbury Lawns are specialists in great

looking lawns whether it is an instant rollout

lawn or hydroseeding. Their roll-out

lawns use top quality products and are

locally sourced.

Hydroseeding is a cost effective option

and can still be applied during the cooler

months but may take longer to germinate

depending on the location and how much

sun the area gets, and of course, the weather.

Spring is the perfect time of year to get your

new lawn for summer!

Hydroseeding is a spray-on application

of water, grass seed, wood fibre mulch,

fertiliser and tackifier (a glue which holds

the mix to the surface it is sprayed on). This

method give the best chance for the seeds

to germinate and become your beautiful

green and luscious lawn.

Canterbury Lawns owners Zac and

Ashley Swale live locally and can give the

best advice on growing the perfect lawn.

Watering is key and Zac recommends

having an automated irrigation system

installed to make the job easier, more

convenient and more efficient in terms of

water use. He is happy to provide advice

regarding the best type of sprinklers for

your property’s needs and provide a quote.

You can also catch Ashley in the office

working behind the scenes.

The services of Zac and his team are wide

and varied and can cater for all your needs

just enquire today and we can organise a

time for a free quote.

Canterbury Lawns not only works close

to home on residential properties but also

specialise in commercial and larger-scale

work, bringing to any job a high level of

both expertise and enthusiasm.

Zac and the team are also specialists

in erosion and dust control for both

commercial and residential areas. This is

perfect for this time of year keeping the

dust down in the nor’west winds!

Their hydroseeder can hold large

quantities at a time making the job more

efficient and they can source top quality

products to suit each job.

For more information phone the team

at Canterbury Lawns on 027 456 7777

or 03 347 4000. You can also visit their

Gutter guard

extends the life of

your spouting

Developed in Australia more than 20 years

ago, Gumleaf Gutter Guard has been

providing a quality and effective solution in

New Zealand for the last decade.

The Gumleaf Gutter Guard also helps

with preventing birds from nesting in the

spouting during spring. The eggs and young

chicks attract vermin which can then get

inside roof cavities and rats and mice can

then chew through wiring creating a fire

hazard, he says.

Gumleaf Gutter Guard is an effective way

of preventing birds from making nests in

the spouting, and perching on the spouting

and soiling walls and windows with their

droppings, while also protecting tank water

from being contaminated, ensuring the

safety and quality of the water supply.

“By having a gutter guard installed, the

life of the spouting is extended to the life

of the roof.”

Snow can also damage spouting, and

again Gumleaf Gutter Guard will protect

the spouting by spreading the load, Rohan

says.

Developed in Australia more than 20

years ago, Gumleaf Gutter Guard has been

providing a quality and effective solution

in New Zealand for the last decade, Rohan

says. Much of his work comes from repeat

business, with customers happy with both

the product quality and the service he

provides.

Customers requesting a quote will receive

it within 24 hours, and Rohan says he will

“go anywhere to provide a quote”.

He is also available anytime if customers

need to speak with him.

“Even if I am working on a job, I will talk

to anyone who calls me,” he says.

Once a quote is accepted, the job is

started within 10 days, with installation on

an average sized house taking one to two

days. Rohan also does any necessary minor

repair jobs on the roof at the same time.

Styling for

outdoor living

With the warmer weather, the outside beckons and it is a great

opportunity to create what essential is an additional room over

summer and a becomes focus for entertaining and family time.

Making your outdoor area just as stylish

as your interior is a matter of choosing the

best furniture solutions depending on how

you see the space being used.

The main things to consider are fairly

obvious – space, types of furniture, style

and materials and storage options.

First up is space and size. Outdoor

furniture needs to be sized to the space

you have available. A small courtyard or

veranda can look even smaller with large

furniture while a larger deck looks best

with larger settings.

Measure how much space you have

before you shop as furniture and include

plenty of room to move around.

Once you have established the size of

your new outdoor furniture you need to

identify what type of furniture you need for

the space depending on how you think it

will be used.

There are plenty of options for outdoor

furniture and, if you have a larger space,

you might want to divide it up into different

areas, for example, two chairs and table for

that morning coffee, a dining table, sofa

and comfortable chairs or a hammock.

Bean bags are a flexible option and can

bring a splash of colour or pattern into

your outdoor space. There are plenty of

shapes and sizes of outdoor beanbags

available, from ottomans and loungers to

the traditional teardrop shape.

Style-wise any outdoor furniture should

ideally blend with what you have in your

home and can enhance your indooroutdoor

flow. So if you have a modern home

then look for something that has similar

clean lines. Or it may be the opportunity

to use bright colours that you would not

choose for your

interior.

To make sure your

outdoor furniture

lasts for a long time,

choose the right

materials. Rattanstyle

furniture, for

example, is now

made with a poly resin which means it is

weather-resistant and can stay outdoors all

year round. Look for dense woods like teak

which are easy to maintain and durable.

Powder coated metal furniture is both UVresistant

and rust proof.

There are plenty of outdoor furniture

options available so take the time to make

sure you have exactly what suits your needs

and then you can sit back, relax and enjoy

the sunshine.

To make sure

your outdoor

furniture lasts

for a long time,

choose the right

materials.

A garden haven

It’s spring! The perfect time to look at how

you could enhance your garden’s appeal and

spend more time outside relaxing after an

enjoyable day spent working in the garden.

Outdoor lighting can be used to set the

right mood for you and your guests to

enjoy al fresco dining on the deck, patio or

in outdoor garden rooms.

Lighting can also be used to add structure

to your garden, and enhance trees,

sculptures, spa, pool and seating areas.

Whether you love the look of hanging

lanterns or more traditional lighting, there

is something to suit everyone’s style and

budget.

The Juice Electrical team recommend

to look for styles where you can use longlife

and energy efficient LEDs. Low voltage

LEDs can be safely installed under bark,

mulch or weed mat with no digging or

trench needed.

Spring is also a great time to install that

spa pool you have always wanted. While

size and style is important to consider it is

also critical to get some information on the

power requirements. Some spa pools cost

more to install, while others have a sting in

the tail when the power bill arrives as they

cost more to run. The Juice team can offer

pre-purchase advice as well as install.

Juice Electrical love their community,

and offer great service without any added

mileage or admin fees for our Rolleston

customers who pay only for the time we

spend on the job.

Give life to your garden ideas, and

bring Juice in on your plans. We can help

to enhance your garden for the warmer

weather ahead.

HOME PROFESSIONALS

Perfect time to explore

heating options

It’s a perfect time of the year to plan a

summer project, to research home heating

options and choose a fire well in advance of

next season.

Not only are you likely to “snag” a great

deal on an end of season special offer, but

also the pressure’s off, so a new fire can be

installed relatively quickly.

Nothing beats the comfort and ambience

of a fire. We can all relate to stepping into a

deliciously warm home and backing up to a

real wood flame.

If “no mess, no fuss, just great heat”

appeals and fits your lifestyle, then a stylish

pellet fire is the answer. The Italian Ravelli

pellet burners are exclusive to Heatstore

and feature the latest technology from one

of Europe’s leading manufacturers. The

new 2019 Dual & Natural 7 models take

convenience to another level.

These fires are exceptionally efficient,

whisper quiet, available with or without

a convection fan, self-cleaning and are

fully controllable to a seven-day timer/

thermostat. The “icing on the cake” for tech

savvy folk is optional Wi-Fi which enables

all the Ravelli models to be easily operated

remotely via a mobile phone or tablet.

Modern log burning fires have also

recently improved in leaps and bounds. The

Blaze King catalytic combustion burning

fires from Canada are exclusively supplied

and installed by Heatstore and are second

to none.

These fires were designed in direct

response to the Canadian Air Plan

Regulations over 30 years ago, are capable of

achieving burn times of 15 - 20 hours from

a single load of wood, whilst producing

thermostatically “controlled heat, all night

long”.

Heatstore have been installing these fires

for approximately 18 months and have

received unprecedented feedback from

many happy customers.

Heatstore is an accredited provider to

both the ECan Healthier Homes loan

and also the EECA Warmer Kiwi Homes

grant schemes, although not too many

homeowners are aware of the options

available.

An ECan Heathier Homes loan is

available for approved heating, insulation

and ventilation products enabling a

homeowner to borrow up to $6000 which

is repayable via your rates.

The new EECA Warmer Kiwi Homes

grant scheme is for eligible homeowners,

living in older homes built before 2008.

Grants of up to $2875 are available for

qualifying homeowners to assist with the

purchase of approved heating. Conditions

apply so ask Heatstore for assistance or,

The start of a blooming garden

THE JOY of spring is that there

are plenty of jobs to do in the

garden, especially now the soil is

warming up.

Towards the end of October,

early season varieties of

strawberries will begin to ripen.

Check plants regularly for signs

of grey mould (botrytis), and

remove any affected leaves and

fruit.

Add pea straw, hay or clean

bark mulch around the plants

to provide a clean ‘nest’ for

developing strawberries.

Raspberries, boysenberries,

loganberries and blackberries

should be growing at a very fast

rate as we move through the

month.

Train canes on a wall or a

wire framework. It may be

necessary to remove some

surplus canes where growth is

exceptional. Mulch with compost

to suppress weeds and conserve

soil moisture, and fruit and berry

fertiliser.

Lawns are now in very active

growth and require regular

mowing. Fertilise with lawn

fertiliser and repeat every four to

six weeks.

This is the last month for

‘easy’ laying of a new lawn or for

patching and existing lawn.

It’s a great time to plant up

BEST DISPLAY OF YEAR: Roses should now be coming into bloom.

your container gardens with

ornamental annuals, perennials

or herbs, and even small green

salad veges.

Always start with fresh

container mix and ensure the

containers are well drained.

Summer annuals that thrive in

containers include dwarf cosmos,

marigolds, petunia, portulacas,

salvias and zinnias.

If you are establishing a new

herb garden or restoring an

existing one, try and position the

herb garden close to the kitchen

so it’s easy to access.

Ideally, herbs prefer a sunny,

well-drained position. You may

need to plant more of the herbs

you frequently use for example

basil, chives, parsley.

Roses will now start coming

into their own.

The first blooms are the best

display of the year before the

dreaded blackspot and rust

appear.

Fertilise them every four to

six weeks with rose fertiliser as

this enhances regular and ‘strong’

flowering.

Mulch with compost to help

retain soil moisture and ‘dead

head’ (the removal of old flowers)

regularly to help promote

continuous flowering.

Take precautions

to keep safe

SPRING IS a time when

working in the garden is the

place to be.

However, there are hidden

dangers and one of those is

developing legionnaires’ disease.

Here are some guidelines to

avoid that happening

•Minimise the amount of dust

present when working in the

garden.

•Water gardens and indoor

plants using a gentle spray.

•Read the warning label on

bagged composts or potting

mix.

•Wear gloves.

•Wear a mask so that any dust

is filtered out before you can

breathe it in.

•Dampen potting mixes

before use.

•Open bags of soil products

slowly, away from the face.

•Make sure the working area

(for example, the glasshouse or

potting shed) is well ventilated.

•See a doctor if you develop a

flu-like illness that seems to be

worsening.

•Wash hands thoroughly

after gardening or handling soil

products.

These are simple, easy and

natural steps that all gardeners

can take to reduce risk while

continuing to enjoy their

garden.

Ford Focus continues tradition of old

Motoring

Ross Kiddie

WHEN I LOOK back over time

I simply can’t understand why I

let two of my favourite cars go to

new owners, I made some very

bad decisions.

They were both three-door

Escorts, a Mk 1 and Mk 2 Sport.

Today I’m hankering to own

an Escort again, but prices are

astronomical and they don’t often

come up for sale.

The Escort of eras gone by

represented honesty and sporty

performance, depending on the

model. Over the years it morphed

into various shapes and designs,

its concept retained in today’s Focus

– the natural successor to that

incredibly successful nameplate.

The Focus has just been transformed

for 2019, there are four

models for New Zealand, three

hatchbacks and a wagon. The

latter has a 2-litre diesel engine,

but all the others share a threecylinder

petrol driveline. There

are three levels of specification, a

Trend opens the series at $31,990,

ST-Line adds around $5000,

while a Titanium variant lists at

$41,990. This evaluation focuses

on the latter (pardon the pun).

For interest’s sake, the Trend

wagon is listed at $37,990.

The Titanium is plush, it is very

well specced and a value choice. It

is a compact car but it will easily

cater for four, or even five when

necessary. Each occupant gets a

respectable amount of head and

leg room, even in the rear. Load

space is also on a par with what

you would expect from a mid-size

hatchback, but those interested

in more cargo carrying ability

could well be interested in the

entry-level wagon, it would be my

choice in the series.

Under the bonnet sits the

delightful three-cylinder, 1.5-litre

engine. It must be said that threepotters

are different in the way

they sound and react, not that

that is a problem, but there are

harmonics which the occupants

can pick up. I’m a big threecylinder

engine fan, they develop

strong low down torque, and that

FORD FOCUS: Three-cylinder enigne.

is what you want in any engine,

and if you add in turbocharged

boost then the Focus feels feisty

and decisive when asked to perform.

Ford claims a very impressive

134kW (6000rpm) and

240Nm power outputs from the

twin-camshaft unit. The torque

output is delivered low in the rev

band at 1600rpm with a long,

broad stretch to 4500rpm and

that contributes to the feeling of

willingness and urgency. Sure,

a standstill to 100km/h time of

8.9sec isn’t earth-shattering, but

the Focus in this form does have

punch through the mid-range

and that’s what is important, it

will easily make a 5sec 80km/h to

120km/h overtaking manoeuvre.

Drive is channelled through an

eight-speed automatic transmission

and it harnesses the available

power beautifully, the proximity

of ratios means the engine never

goes off song and the correct gear

is always selected for each moment.

The gearing is such that it also

makes economic use of fuel. Ford

claims a 6.1l/100km (46mpg)

combined cycle average. The fuel

usage readout on the evaluation

car was mostly listing around

7.6l/100km (37mpg) with tempting

4.6l/100km (61mpg) available

instantaneously at 100km/h, the

engine turning over leisurely at

1600rpm.

Like its predecessors, the Focus

has quality handling. I’ve long

admired the way European Fords

tackle tight and twisty terrain,

• Price – Ford Focus

Titanium, $41,990

240Nm, eight-speed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.9sec

• Fuel usage – 6.1l/100km

the Focus steers with precision

and accuracy. The Titanium-spec

Focus does sit a little firm on the

road and that has a lot to do with

the low profile tyres (235/40 x

18in), however, the ride isn’t compromised

greatly, there is compliance

within the suspension.

Ford of New Zealand, and the

dealerships, must still be happy

with their position in the marketplace.

Ranger is still the number

one seller nationwide, and the rest

of the Ford line-up is ticking over

consistently.

The Focus is there to tempt

the small-to-mid hatchback

(or wagon) buyer and it is very

capable in all conditions. And

with petrol sitting at around $2.20

a litre, that wee engine is a real

money-saver.

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 pre-auction 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.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

A home to relax in

New to Lincoln’s Te Whāriki showhome village is

a very appealing 216sqm house by Orange Homes.

Throughout, this home has many striking features,

colours and textures.

Earthy tones in the living precinct instil a desire to

sink into a couch and relax. The kitchen’s timber look

cabinetry is offset by its near black island cabinetry and

white 30mm engineered Tri-stone bench tops. Darker

(stoney colour) Divino timber style vinyl plank flooring

finishes the look, giving the galley style kitchen a touch

of class. An island sink complete with tower Fawcett,

allows interaction with family or guests while prepping

a meal with a pantry handily positioned nearby.

Tucked into one end of the living area is a study

nook. At the other end, pull back cavity sliders allow a

lounge/media room to become a quiet space to watch

a movie, for a tête-à-tête or to gaze over the wetlands

beyond, as sun streams through the large window.

A sliding door allows natural indoor/outdoor flow

from living area to garden offering the perfect family

living and entertaining scenario. With floor to ceiling

windows in this area light abounds along with plenty of

natural heating from the sun.

The décor throughout this home marries soft earthy

tones, white walls and a touch of black to create a

calming environment where you will want to stay a

while. Wallpaper makes a statement in both

the lounge and master bedroom. Within the

latter, there is a generous walk-in robe fitted

out with a customised wardrobe system in

grey ash joinery.

Plush is the best way to describe the

ensuite where the floor and two walls

including behind the large glass corner

shower are fully tiled. A wide hanging

vanity and toilet complete this spacious

and light room. Tiles are also a feature in

the main bathroom where they surround

and cover the wall behind the fitted bath.

This room also has a curved shower,

hanging vanity and generous mirror. There

is a separate toilet complete with a small

washbasin next door.

Storage is generous in this home with double

wardrobes in bedrooms two and three, a small storage

cupboard in one corner of the garage, and a full height

and wide cupboard in the separate laundry, where there

is space for a washing machine and under-bench dryer.

The double garage is a true 6x6 metres, accessible to

the home through the entry way. There is also a door

leading out to be backyard.

You will find Orange Homes’ new showhome at156

Southfield Drive, Te Whāriki in Lincoln. It is open

Wednesdays to Sundays, 12pm until 4pm.

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.

EVERY WEDNESDAY inside Selwyn Times

• 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.
