given fire

prevention

message

• By Devon Bolger

LIFESTYLE BLOCK owners

have got the message how to help

prevent fires becoming out of

control blazes in the district.

Just over 200 people attended

a meeting in West Melton on

Saturday to brief them on the

dangers as the district continues

to dry out.

Said Fire and Emergency New

Zealand fire risk management officer

Kerri Pring: “We had a lot of

engagement from the community.

They asked some great questions

about how to keep themselves

safe, so it was really good.”

She said it was a great success.

Another meeting is now planned

for lifestyle block owners in the

Lincoln/Tai Tapu area and North

Canterbury.

Fire chiefs are wanting to educate

lifestyle block owners in the

district on how quickly fires can

get out of control.

The fire risk in parts of the

district is rated as high.

LIFESTYLE BLOCK owners look like

they are taking the fire risk in the district

seriously (see page 1).

More than 200 people attended a meeting

at the weekend organised by fire chiefs,

police and Civil Defence.

It was aimed at telling lifestyle block owners – particularly

those new to the district and those who come from an urban

background – how quickly fire can get out of control.

More importantly, they were told how they can help stop fires

from becoming major problems.

When the big nor’westers come next month there will be the

usual serious issues for firefighters.

Remember the big blaze a few years ago, when large areas of

Prebbleton and Lincoln were threatened?

Time to be careful.

Rolleston brigade

third busiest volunteer station

• By Devon Bolger

ROLLESTON firefighters were

amongst the busiest volunteer

brigades in New Zealand last

year.

The brigade attended 562 callouts

during 2019, with medical

incidents being the most common

with 194.

Chief fire

officer Cam Kenyon

said there

were two reasons

for why they

were busy.

“The first one

is because of Cam Kenyon

where we are. If

you look at Rolleston we are in

the middle of a whole lot of other

brigades so we do back them up

quite often,” he said.

Rolleston was ranked third

busiest volunteer station in New

Zealand behind the Silverdale

and Pukekohe brigades in Auckland.

The rankings by Fire and

Emergency New Zealand are

based on the number of call-outs

in the station’s area, the total

appliance call-outs and total

incidents they have responded to.

RECOGNITION: The Rolleston Volunteer Fire Brigade has been

named the third busiest volunteer station in the country for the

past year. ​

call-outs is the number of medical

incidents they respond to, Mr

Kenyon said.

“We are known as a first

responder brigade so we don’t

just go to the cardiac arrests and

things, we do anything an ambulance

would do if there isn’t one

spokesman said they were happy

with the amazing turnout. “The

firefighters read, sung, answered

questions and explained to the

kids how to become a firefighter

and how to prevent house fires.”

The kids got to check out the fire

truck as well, which was a huge

hit, he said.

is and then there is 15 working

days for the appeal process.

An Environment Canterbury

spokeswoman said the

commissioners have 15 working

days to release their decision

after the hearing has closed.

She said if the commissioners

are satisfied on February 5 they

have everything they need to

make a decision, they may close

the hearing that day.

Templeton Residents’ Association

treasurer Jolene Eagar said

the submitters have no idea what

to expect.

“It has been such a long road

but it will give everybody a bit of

certainty of where we are,” she

said.

The hearing will reconvene

West Melton lifestyle block

owner Margaret Langdale-Hunt

said the meeting was very good.

“To get all of the emergency

services there was great. I think

the newcomers to these areas

could do with an update

like this on a regular

basis, quite frankly,” she

said.

Ms Langdale-Hunt said

a number of good points

were discussed at the

meeting.

“Things like when

you’re mowing, you

shouldn’t have your

exhaust too close to the

hedge. Those things are extremely

important.

“The public expect the chopper

to be able to come in and just

fill up anywhere so it was really

good to have that explained that

it can’t. They need a clear space

because of the rotor blades and

things like that,” she said,

20m patch.

Ms Pring said lifestyle blocks

tend to be more fire dangerous

because of the size and location.

“They are larger properties so

they aren’t in an urban setting.

It’s safer in urban areas because

there are more houses

around and less vegetation,”

she said.

“Lifestyle block

owners generally have

other working jobs

and their property is

a hobby so sometimes

they can’t quite get

around to maintaining

the property by keeping

the grass low and

trimming low hanging branches

and things.”

Lifestyle block owners were told

at the meeting how to prepare

properties for the peak fire season

and what to do in the event of a

fire.

“The district is on the edge of

quite a risky season and if we

continue to stay dry we will end

up that way,” Ms Pring said.

Fire restrictions in the district

started on December 13.

Huge increase in

December property sales

• By Devon Bolger

DECEMBER SAW a big jump in

the number of houses sold in the

district.

Seventy-eight were sold, up

from the 57 sold in December

2018 – a 36.8 per cent increase.

Harcourts

Lincoln principal

officer

James Twiss

said the high

number of

new building

consents and

James Twiss

a slow spring

saw housing

stock levels

increase.

“With plenty of choice, interest

rates low and Christmas

coming, it appears the market

came to life,” he said.

The number of new dwellings

consented in the district was

up 29.4 per cent for the last year

says Statistics New Zealand.

There were 1290 consents

granted compared to the 997

given in 2018.

Mr Twiss said he expects the

strong housing activity to continue

for some time.

STOCK: The Selwyn property market came to life in

December.

“It appears building consent

numbers are still high so I would

expect that to continue which

means the builders will catch up

on the sales at some point.”

They are seeing a lot of first

home buyers looking to get

themselves a property using

their KiwiSaver as a deposit, Mr

aclandpark.co.nz

0800 ACLAND

Twiss said.

“Rolleston had some very

strong activity over December

on the back of that.”

Ray White Real Estate agent

Brendan (Big Red) Shefford said

December was a terrific month

for them.

“It kept the team working

‘With plenty of choice,

interest rates low and

Christmas coming, it

appears the market came

to life’

– James Twiss

right through the Christmas

and New Year period. Seventyeight

is a lot of houses to be

sold throughout the district for

December.”

They have seen great activity

in the first two weeks of this year

too, he said.

“The market is extremely competitive

between the new construction

and existing homes.”

Mr Shefford said he also does

not see the housing market slowing

anytime soon.

“With the long-awaited southern

motorway extension, Selwyn

will continue to grow.”

The median house price in the

district increased by 1.2 per cent

from November to December.

REINZ figures show it is now

$554,000 compared to $547,260.

That is a 0.2 per cent decrease

from the median house price at

the same time last year.

Canterbury’s fastest selling

new subdivision

Weedons

interchange

nearly ready

• By Devon Bolger

THE WEEDONS interchange,

part of the Southern Motorway,

is expected to be completed next

week.

An NZTA spokesman said the

interchange will be fully operational

by late January.

In September, Selwyn Times

revealed the interchange was supposed

to be fully completed a year

earlier.

New Zealand Transport Agency

principal project manager Geoff

Griffiths said it had been hoped

that the interchange would be

open for full use in late-2018.

He said there have been delays

in opening the interchange fully.

“There were a number of factors

contributing to the overall delay,

which were not unexpected on a

project the size of CSM2. Extra

time was required to ensure the

work was completed to the right

specifications and to eliminate the

risk of having to come back later

to do more costly, disruptive and

time-consuming repairs.’’

The overbridge, part of the

interchange, was opened in July.

Up to $100,000 of

goods stolen in break-in

• By Devon Bolger

A JETBOAT and karts are

among the up to $100,000

of items stolen from a

property in Coalgate.

Businessman Allan

Rhodes and his partner

Lisa Bullock are offering a

$5000 reward for information

leading to the conviction

of the offenders and

return of the items.

The items were stolen

from a warehouse they

own in Bridge St.

“We’ve had a lot of

burglaries over the years

but his one is the worst.

They have taken anywhere

between $60,000-$100,000

of stuff,” he said.

•The reward will

be available on

information given to

hamish.caird@police.

govt.nz

The list of items taken

includes a Yamaha jetboat,

a six-wheel-drive Argo,

four karts and a large red

off-road buggy.

Mr Rhodes was the

owner of the well-known

Hororata Homestead

which was badly damaged

in the September 4, 2010,

earthquake.

The 7.1 magnitude quake

tipped his son Xavier

Trousselot-Rhode out of

his first-floor bedroom and

onto the ground outside.

The historic homestead

was later demolished and

the property sold.

Mr Rhodes was called in

early January by a Bridge

St resident who said the

warehouse had been broken

into.

“He said: ‘Your locks

have been cut’. He went

and put some brand new

locks on for us and then

the next morning he rung

and said they had been cut

again.

“There’s lots and lots

of gear that’s been taken,

some we haven’t been able

to list. Well over 30 years

of collection of different

things we have.”

The annual Teddy Bears’ Picnic drew in a big crowd last Wednesday. More

than 1200 people plus their teddies turned up to take part in the festivities at the

Rolleston Reserve and Community Centre. The event was a part of the district

council’s Summer in Selwyn programme. A spokeswoman said: “Children

enjoyed face painting, the pedalmania bikes, and jumping on the bouncy

castles amongst other fun activities. The teddy bear parade was a highlight for

many and the biggest in the event’s history to date.” ​

Bruce Russell

No plans to cut back on community work

Bruce Russell’s

contribution to community

organisations in

Canterbury has spanned

more than 50 years. The

78-year-old West Melton

resident talks to Devon

Bolger about his love of

farming and passion for

giving back

How did it feel being named

as a Queen’s Service Medal

recipient on the recent New

Year Honours List?

I was very surprised. It was a

great honour but as I said at the

time, I didn’t do the community

work for any recognition.

What are some of your most

proud achievements?

I suppose it would be the new

hall, well at least that was the

climax of all the work I’ve done.

After the earthquake, the West

Melton hall was badly damaged.

I called a number of public meetings

here and we decided the

appropriate thing would be to go

to the council and see if we could

build a community and recreation

centre and we basically did

just that. I get a lot of feedback

from people who hire it that its

one of the best buildings they

have been to which is quite nice

to hear. I’ve enjoyed working for

and with the community. One

person cannot achieve these

goals, they have to have the

support of people around them.

These things I’ve helped with

weren’t my ideas or anything but

I was able to gain that support

I guess and get them done. I’m

also proud of my work with the

Selwyn Central Community

Board here, which has been abolished

now. I chaired that and was

on it for about 12 years.

What community work are

you still involved in?

I am still on the reserve committee,

residents association and

I’m still on a number of other

committees. I’m there purely to

offer any valuable information

that I can. I believe the future

lies with the younger people and

we have to take notice of that. If

we can generate some interest

for them in these things then

well they will designate what the

future holds. I was appointed

a JP in about 2012 which was

a great honour and then I was

asked if I’d like to be a marriage

celebrant which I now am. I really

enjoy the work I do in those

roles. It’s just something else I

can do to give back to the community.

How started your lifelong

interest in farming?

I took over the family farm

when I finished schooling which

was in about 1959. I went to

Lincoln University in 1961 and

did a certificate in agriculture.

After that, I came back and

farmed in partnership with my

father. Then in about 1965 I

took over the farm and I bought

out my brother. I bought his

place and then a couple of the

neighbours’ and we finished up

with about 500 acres. We ran

dairy cows, pigs, sheep, cropping

and a contracting business from

there. Eventually, I sold the farm

in about the 1980s and moved

into Christchurch. When I was

farming I was on a number of

committees; I chaired one of

the local dairy companies, I was

very tied up with A&P work

and both the Ellesmere and

Canterbury shows. I also was

very involved in setting up vet

clubs throughout New Zealand.

I was chairman of the veterinary

services council which sort of

set up and help run veterinary

practices across the country.

TRILLO METALS MUSCLE

CAR MADNESS NO 30

Thirty years is a remarkable achievement

for any event, even in a marriage these

days it would be a very good result. Trillo

metals Muscle Car Madness has turned

into a car culture event and part of the

reason is that the Rangiora showgrounds

has become the perfect spot for it. A

supportive small town basically “bang

smack” in the middle of the South Island

gives easy access to all. In just a few short

years the show became the largest car show

in the South Island and ranks in the top

three of New Zealand.

Events have come and gone trying to

better this show but each year more and

more people come from all over the world.

The furthest entrant this year comes from

Arkansas. Entrants just love staying on site

and enjoy their late-night fun. This year

nearly 1,000 cars are entered for the event

with at least 800 more cars turning up as

day visitors. Due to high demand the show

will open from 9.00 a.m till 4.30 pm. The

Sean Williams is driving his top show roadster

down all the way from Auckland, featured in the

current N.Z.Hot Rod magazine.

Ian Neary’s Viper V10 powered GTX “Eruption”

is said to be valued at over $700,000 and will

be display on the Mothers polishes stand. It is a

world class show car.

arena will fill up quickly and will be only

available to twenty year and older cars. All

others and overflow of show cars enter gate

2. Free parking at gate 3.

An anniversary cruise will do 2 laps of

Rangiora’s main street then down Lineside

road and through Kaiapoi on Thursday

night. It will hit Rangiora’s High Street

just before 7pm and Kaiapoi about 7.20

p.m. The Rockabilly pageant takes place

Saturday at 12 noon, and burnouts will

start a bit later at 1.30 pm. Sunday sees the

burnout finals.

Top cars will be in abundance including

Ian Naery’s GTX ‘Eruption’ powered by a

Viper V10 engine and rumoured to be worth

nearly 3/4 million dollars. As usual there is a

great array of retro clothing, event t shirts,

market stalls, kids rides and ten live bands

including the return of Hillbilly Hellcats

from Colorado, and Flyin’ Saucers from

Melbourne. cost is $20 each, kids under 16

free and 2-day pass for public hours only,

Vintage cars and freemasonry

•From page 1

What did you do for work

when you left farming?

I managed a large company

with about 35-40 staff. I managed

that for 20-odd years. I won’t say

what firm but we worked in waste

services. Then I met my other

half Margaret and we brought a

property here in West Melton.

We’ve been here 25 years now

on a lifestyle block which is about

25 acres. We run cattle from our

property and I do a lot of contract

work out here still.

Do you have plans to slow

down any time soon?

No, not at all. I know the

other half wants me to but no

I don’t intend to. As long as

I’m fit and able, I can still help

people and that’s what it’s all

about.

How long have you lived in

Selwyn?

I’ve lived here for nearly my

entire life. I originally lived in

Greendale and then in the early

1940s my family and I moved to

our farm in Irwell which is on the

shore of Lake Ellesmere.

As I’ve mentioned I moved

into Christchurch for a while

but after I met Margaret we

eventually moved to West Melton

where we have been for about 26

years.

GIVING BACK: Bruce Russell said one of his proudest

achievements was working with the new West Melton

Community and Recreation Centre.

What do you like about living

in Selwyn?

I like its progressiveness. I

think it’s certainly an area that

has a lot to offer. It’s very diverse

albeit within agriculture, within

business, within manufacturing

but also we have a very diverse

population. We are really lucky

to have that. We also have quite

close proximity to Christchurch

and to an international airport.

It’s a very nice area to be in.

Can you tell me about your

family?

I have my partner Margaret

Langdale-Hunt and daughter and

a son from my previous marriage.

My daughter has two children so

I have a couple of grandkids.

What other hobbies/passions

do you have?

I am very keen on vintage stuff.

I’ve got one or two vintage cars

which both Margaret and I enjoy.

I started off the New Zealand

Farm Machinery Vintage Club

which began 20-odd years ago.

It’s a group of people who, well

it’s like the old saying – from a

thimble to a tractor engine. So

it’s a very diverse club and we

have our own premises now at

Mcleans Island. We’ve got about

seven or eight hundred members.

I really enjoy taking part in that.

I also enjoy freemasonry. I

have been an active member of

the New Zealand Freemasons for

roughly 46 years. It’s a fellowship

of men and we do a lot of charity

work and things like that.

The other interest I have

is music. I do quite a lot of

singing and that through my

freemasonry and thoroughly

enjoy that. A lot of people have

hidden talents and its just

something I like to encourage

amongst people and I do like to

take part in the Christmas carol

events here.

I do have a lot of hobbies

though, my main one is probably

people.

SELWYN TIMES

Guided

walks

throughout

January

THE DISTRICT council’s guided

walks began last Tuesday and will

continue throughout the rest of

the month.

Council spokeswoman Claire

Bunt said the walk to

Kura Tāwhiti/Castle Hill was a

success.

“We had 20 enthusiastic adventurers

joining us to explore. We

even had a family of nine join us

for the walk. It was the first time

in four years that they had all

been together.

“The Auckland-based grandparents

jumped at the opportunity

after having both studied Geology

and Geography at university.

Perfect for this breathtaking location,”

she said.

Kerr geared up for one

more crack at national title

SPORT

• By Allan Batt

VETERAN SPEEDWAY racer

David Kerr believes he has one

more big weekend left in him

ahead of the 78 th New Zealand

midget car championship which

begins at Ruapuna Speedway on

Friday.

Kerr, who lives in Southbridge,

is the South Island’s

most successful midget car racer

with eight South Island titles to

his credit and he finished third

in the national midget car title

race at Ruapuna in 2015.

The 48-year-old said this is

likely to be his last shot at a

national title in the class.

“The body is starting to tell

me that its ready for a break,” he

said.

“I started racing junior saloons

at Ellesmere 30 years ago and you

start looking at all these young

guys and wonder how many

more laps I can squeeze in.

“Lawn bowls could be the go.

“I’ve had a few moments for

sure, but it’s always part and

parcel of trying and racing hard.

We all want to win. We all want

to go hard and fast but sometimes

you have to step over the

Kerr rates defending New

Zealand champion Michael

Pickens, of Auckland, as having

a huge chance of retaining the

title but is confident the Canterbury

drivers will make a good

account of themselves.

“We might miss that knifeedge

action and tough competition

but we will give them a

pretty good fight.”

Friday night’s programme will

see each driver contesting three

heat races and on Saturday night

they will do two more.

Just 20 of the 43 entrants will

contest the final.

45-over cricket semi-final hopes

Sefton got home by two

wickets at Southbridge Domain,

chasing 154 for victory, with

the result strengthening their

grip on fifth and keeping them

one win outside the top four

currently occupied by Lesston-

Southbridge, Southbrook, Oxford

and Cheviot.

In other results, Lincoln

prevailed over Weedons by nine

wickets at Lincoln Domain,

thanks to left-arm spinner Jeremy

Benton claiming four for 11 from

his eight overs which restricted

Weedons to 104 all out.

A century from Will Hamilton

helped Cheviot to a 110-run

victory over Darfield.

Hamilton’s 114 helped the hosts

make 278 for five which proved

too much for Darfield who were

bowled out for 168 in the 38th

over, at Darfield Domain.

Right-arm medium-fast bowler

Young entrepreneurs take out

Innovation award

Enjoying summer in Selwyn

More than 1000 people turned out to the annual Teddy Bears’ Picnic

at Rolleston Reserve last week, as Summer in Selwyn continues to

draw the crowds.

Hundreds have also turned out to events including the ever popular

pool parties at Sheffield and Darfield last week and the first of our

outdoor movies in December.

There is plenty still to come, with the joint Selwyn and Christchurch

City Libraries whānau Fun day at Lincoln Library on Saturday with

stories, craft, technology and more, pool parties at Southbridge and

the Selwyn Aquatic Centre, another outdoor movie in Leeston and

two drive-in movies.

The popular Picnics in the Park are also beginning this week, while

other events include the Month of Sundays music afternoons on

the Lincoln Green starting in February, along with skate jams, sports

competitions and heaps of activities in Selwyn Libraries. For a full list of

events go to selwyn.govt.nz/events or visit the Council Facebook page.

Continuing our series profiling winners at the 2018 Selwyn Awards. Mana, 10, and Tui, 8, Martin

won the Innovation Excellence Award for their business Plastic Straws Suck.

Amongst the youngest nominees for the Selwyn Awards, Tui and Mana were fitting winners of an

award that recognises the outstanding innovative contribution of individuals, social enterprises or

businesses in Selwyn.

A school project about the impact of plastic in oceans inspired the passionate beach users.

“The beach is a fun place to be with all your mates and friends and family. If there’s lots of plastic

it pollutes the ocean and that’s not very cool!” says Tui.

With the assistance of dad Nathan, Plastic Straws Suck was born.

With the aim of having hometown Lincoln plastic straw-free by 2020 and donating 25% of their

profits to organisations dedicated to removing plastic from oceans, Mana and Tui have spent

tireless hours talking to hospitality businesses about the impact of plastic straws and selling metal

straws at local markets and through their Facebook page.

Being entered into the Awards was a surprise, as their mum’s friend nominated them and only told

them a couple of weeks before the Gala Dinner.

Reflecting on the evening, Manu recounts “My fav [favourite] part was getting to know everyone,

putting our idea out there and talking about what other people have done to get there and

how amazing their journey had been. When we heard our name called as the winner, we were

surprised. It felt really amazing”.

“It was really cool watching the entertainment and the food was really yummy. We also got to

meet the Mayor and wear his Mayoral chains, which was cool… and he also bought some metal

straws off us!” Tui remembers enthusiastically.

“Winning the award has definitely changed the way locals look at us,” Mana says. “And more

companies are going plastic straw-free off the back of winning.”

10,000 reasons to be road safety aware

We’re reminding drivers to stay alert and drive safely as children return to school next week.

From next Monday 27 January, over 10,000 Selwyn children will be heading back to school – that’s

nearly 20% of our population on the move.

Selwyn School Road Safety Coordinator Stephanie Hautler is encouraging everyone to keep their eyes

peeled for our young people heading back to school by foot and on wheels.

For those heading to school here are some travel safety tips:

· Be bright and be seen. Ask your school for a safety vest.

· Tackle the routes together, talking about sneaky driveways and blind corners.

· Get out and active together to reduce the chaos at the school gate.

· Wear your helmets, this goes for caregivers too… young people are watching you!

People can also take advantage of the more settled weather to get out of the car and get active with

their children and familiarise themselves with hazards on the route.

“Road safety awareness is an important life skill and starts developing when you are young. Take

every opportunity to educate children on how to safely cross a road using their eyes and ears” says

Mrs Hautler.

“A fluoro yellow hi-viz makes your child visible in poor weather as well as bright sun. Most schools have

them available for free or a small cost and they really make a difference.”

If you are pushed for time, park a block back from school so that your child can scoot or walk. It is

good for them both physically and mentally, develops their road safety skills and helps with overall

congestion at the school gate, she says.

Road safety resources for parents and children are available from the Council by emailing

stephanie.hautler@selwyn.govt.nz or phoning 347 2705.

Libraries light up with lanterns

Four Chinese lantern scenes will be lighting up libraries around

Selwyn this week and at the Council headquarters in Rolleston.

The lanterns, which are being installed on this week, have been put

up to mark the start of Chinese New Year on Saturday (25 January).

The lanterns, which make up large scenes of animals and people,

will be in place for two weeks for people to enjoy.

Selwyn Libraries will also be hosting Chinese New Year story

times from Monday 3 February to Wednesday 5 February with

interactive stories, songs and dances. For more information visit

selwynlibraries.co.nz.

Property files now available in

electronic format

Customers wanting to view a property file, or other Council

records, can now book this service online, and view most files

electronically once the booking has been confirmed. There is a

period of time required to scan the physical files, this depends on

the size of the consent.

The Council maintains a huge archive of records such as property

files, resource consents, cemetery records, liquor licences and

other documents.

Most Councils, including Selwyn, are now converting paper records

to digital files. For customers this means property files and other

records can now be made available electronically, rather than in

paper form.

This will also make it much easier to sort and retrieve files, and

means we’ll be able to send copies of records directly to customers.

Some archive files will still be in paper format while we work through

the digitisation process.

To request an electronic copy of a property file or record, or to book

a viewing at the Council’s Rolleston offices, visit selwyn.govt.nz/

propertyfiles or call the customer team on 0800 SELWYN (735 996).

Some charges apply to cover the costs of preparing and scanning files.

Bookings to view a file at the Council offices can be made from two

to 14 days in advance. Booking times will depend on availability

and an appointment will be confirmed by the records team. People

requesting an electronic copy of a file will be sent a download link,

which remains active for seven days.

Hundreds of fabric pouches, nests, mittens and other items will be helping injured and orphaned

animals thanks to knitting and sewing enthusiasts.

There has been a huge response from Selwyn residents to the Selwyn Libraries offer of patterns and the

use of its premises and machines to people who wanted to sew and knit items such as joey pouches

and mittens for animals affected by the Australian fires, Senior Arts, Culture and Lifelong Learning

Co-ordinator Hayley Browne says.

“We’ve been overwhelmed by the response locally and nationally. We’ve had

people from all over the country contact us to help.”

More than 250 items have been made in or collected by the libraries and are

being stored ready to transport to wherever they are needed. The idea came

after library staff saw the response online from people wanting to support the

Animal Rescue Craft Guild’s work and decided to offer the space and resources

for them to help out in some way, Hayley says.

Any items which aren’t needed in Australia will be donated to other animal

welfare groups who have a need for them, she says.

On the roads this week

Work is being carried out on the pavement on Leeston Dunsandel Road. Please stop on

request. Footpath construction will be taking place on Tramway Road, Springfield. This

footpath will be closed during construction.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Business degree

or diploma – you

choose.

Committing to degree-level study is

a big decision for many people. So Ara

Institute of Canterbury has come up with

a study option that makes that decision

much easier.

“We think of it as the ‘try before you buy’

option,” Nigel Young, head of Enterprise

and Digital Innovation at Ara, says. “You

can enrol for a New Zealand Diploma in

Business, do a year of study and then at the

end of that year you can decide if you want

to leave with your diploma, or continue on

to a full degree.”

Nigel explains that this option makes it

much easier to transition to degree-level

study. “Regardless of what you decide to

do at the end of your first year, you

still get a great qualification. And

of course, if you choose to leave

with the diploma, you can always

come back and carry on to a degree

qualification at a later date if you

want to.”

The ‘try before you buy’ option

isn’t the only flexible aspect of Ara’s

Bachelor of Applied Management

degrees. They can be studied

full-time or part-time, and many

classes are delivered in the evenings

and online. “It means you can

realistically fit study around work

and other commitments,” Nigel says.

The Bachelor of Applied Management

is available in 11 specialities including

project management, accounting,

marketing and sales, human resources

and event management. Each is taught by

highly qualified tutors with extensive realworld

experience. Students graduate workready

thanks to work placements and

work-based projects with local businesses.

Ara offers a wide range of scholarships,

and students can also apply for credit

recognition if they have prior workplace

experience.

To find out more about Ara’s business

diplomas and degrees, visit ara.ac.nz or

New laws show

Government backing

Passing the Farm Debt Mediation and

NAIT (National Animal Identification &

Tracing) laws shows the Government’s

commitment to working alongside and

helping farmers, says Agriculture and

Biosecurity Minister Damien O’Connor.

“These new laws are necessary to address

the previous Government’s nine years

of neglecting the big issues facing the

primary sector.

“By passing these pieces of legislation the

Coalition Government has helped ensure

the future sustainability of the sector.

“The Farm Debt Mediation Act supports

the mental, emotional and financial

wellbeing of farmers and farming families

who find themselves in financial strife.

“Total farm debt in New Zealand is $62.8

billion – up 270 per cent on 20 years ago.

“The failure of a farm business can lead

to the farmer and their family losing both

their business and their home. For many

rural communities the failure of one farm

can have a ripple effect through those

communities and the regional economy.

“Farmers who operate a family business

often don’t have the resources to negotiate

their own protections when dealing with

lenders.

“This scheme will

help to provide

certainty for those

facing the hard

challenge of paying

back debt. It’ll

provide a way

to help them get

through, so they

can get on with

running their

businesses and

supporting their

families.”

Mr O’Connor said the ongoing efforts to

eradicate Mycoplasma bovis highlighted

flaws in the NAIT scheme.

“The previous government set up the

scheme and then let it languish, with little

to no oversight and no consequences for

lack of compliance. We’ve addressed their

inaction and created the animal tracing

scheme New Zealand needs to keep our

primary sectors and economy safe.

“We’ve done our best to make

compliance easier for farmers, including

transition periods where possible to help

farmers adjust. Combined, these steps

will see real changes for the industry and

improvements to our biosecurity system.”

“We had great cooperation from

industry to help improve the Act quickly

and efficiently, and now we have a NAIT

system that’s fit for the future.”

Enjoying the warm

weather outdoors

The hot weather has finally

arrived after a changeable

spring and there is still plenty

of time to entertain guests and

enjoy the warm weather and

potting mixes, remember about the risk of legionnaires

and make sure you keep yourself safe by wearing gloves

and a mask. Open bags in open spaces not in an enclosed

area like a shed. Dampening down the mix before

use is also recommended and wash your hands after

every session in the garden.

specialty growing mixes come ready to go so you can pop

your veggies straight in, giving your plants the best environment

for healthy growth

and development. The mix is

This time of year can be quite hot and dry, so it is important to

keep on top of things such as watering, weeding and mulching.

Having a watering routine helps to keep your plants happy and

reduce the chances of your veggies bolting to seed. Adding a

layer of bark or mulch will assist in retaining moisture in the soil,

as well as keeping the weeds at bay. We all know how frustrating

weeds can be, and they are so resilient and will happily grow

anywhere – just look in tiny cracks in concrete for example!

to water deeply in the early

morning or later in the afternoon

every 2-3 days. It is better to do

this than small

amounts every

day as this

is likely to

get down

where it is

most needed.

What’s new?

We have a great range of Greens

from your home gardener to

wheelbarrows out, great for that

they come with a shovel to make

it as easy for you as possible.

Perfect time for creating

your dream pool

Summer is here and the weather reporters are saying it is going

to be a long hot one. That brings to mind thoughts of having that

swimming pool that you have always wanted and the fun you

and your family will have splashing about in your own back yard.

“Now is an ideal time to organise the install of your pool,” says

Julie Hastings who owns Lagoon Pools with husband Warren.

Lagoon

Pools installs

pools

in sizes

to suit

both small

and large

sections,

ranging

from five

metres to

12 metres

in length

with a

variety of

widths,

colours and shapes. There really is a pool for every site.

Lagoon Pools is the Leisure Pools dealer for most of the South

Island featuring 100% composite fibreglass and, with patented

innovations, every swimming pool is supported by their lifetime

structural warranty and a lifetime osmosis warranty – this makes

them the strongest pool available on the market.

The unique fully automatic slat cover system is a popular option

as well as other cover systems including

the safety cover. Pool automation is

great and allows equipment monitoring

and settings right at your fingertips

from any location. New pools and

colour options can also be viewed at the

Leisure Pools website at www.

leisurepools.co.nz.

Additional features include

extra lighting, fountains, water

jets and spa jets which can

enhance the pool area further,

transforming it into an extended

living space where family

and friends can relax in the outdoors, Julie says.

It takes around five days to install a pool and the finishing

touches can take from four weeks depending upon

the design. Not only does Lagoon Pools install the pool,

they can offer the complete package including paving,

decking, landscaping, fencing etc.

“It is always very satisfying to see a project through

from concept to installation, turning a vision into a

reality.”

Contact Lagoon Pools by phoning Julie or Warren 0800 927 282

or 03 349 2160. You can also visit their website www.lagoonpools.co.nz

to find out more about their range of pools and other

Puppy proofing your home

and garden

A cute puppy may have arrived on your doorstep as a

special Christmas present for your family and that new

arrival will herald some changes in how your household

is run, ensuring that not only is the puppy safe but so are

your belongings.

Puppy proofing your home

is very much like baby

proofing except the canine

version is more

curious, active and

can be destructive,

wanting to

explore and play

with everything

in sight.

First up, and

this may sound

a bit strange,

but have a look

around your

home and garden

as if you were

puppy-sized and

extremely inquisitive

to prevent any potentially

dangerous situations.

Create an environment where more time is

spent where they are praised and loved than being told

off. And protect your home and possessions. They have

very sharp teeth and paws and the most simple

thing like library books on a coffee table

can be fair game so put everything you think

is precious or hazardous to your new friend

out of reach and keep doors closed to parts

of the house that you don’t want destroyed.

Investing in some baby gates to restrict access

is another option.

A good selection of chew toys is essential

as they help with teething, keep your

puppy busy and help promote chewing

on the right things rather than your belongings.

Consider crate training so they have a confined

space to keep them safe and out of trouble,

particularly

at night.

There is plenty

of information

about how to

do this on the

internet or check

with your vet.

Check which plants

you have both inside

and outside. Surprisingly

many are toxic and

karaka tree berries can

be fatal. Others include

common plants like lilies,

ivy, daffodils (especially the bulbs), some species of ivy

and aloe vera. Again check online, with the SPCA or your

vet for more information.

It can be tempting to give your puppy treats but there

are lots of human foods that

are potentially hazardous for

dogs. Chocolate and caffeine

are obvious and well known

but onions, chives, grapes and

raisins, along with mouldy

food, can also be toxic.

With a bit of preparation,

your puppy and your family

will enjoy a happy life together

and your home, possessions,

garden and new friend

will all remain intact.

Gardening

Put up a pergola

MANY OF us believe New

Zealand has near-perfect

weather and have made a

conscious decision to live

outdoors.

We don’t want simply

to wander about in our

gardens – we want to eat,

entertain, shower and even

sleep in them as well.

That being the case,

gardens need much more

structure than they’ve ever

had before, to give us a

sense of security and enclosure,

and one of the easiest

ways of adding this is with

a pergola.

Any one can do it with

a few bits of wood and a

hammer. If you don’t have

a hammer, you can buy a

simple, ready-made pergola

from the hardware store, or

a flash, stylish one from a

design shop.

A pergola can either be a

garden element in its own

right, in which case the design

will be paramount, or

simply a support for climbing

plants, making the look

of the underlying structure

less important.

Wood is probably the

easiest material to use if

you’re doing it yourself, and

the type you choose will be

determined by how long

you’d like your structure to

last. If you don’t want it to

rot, choose something like

cedar, which will weather

well and hang in there for

the long haul.

If you prefer a casual,

rustic look and don’t much

care whether it’ll still be

there in 10 years’ time, you

can make it out of branches

that have fallen from trees,

bound with twine.

For longevity, metal

pergolas are winners.

Naked pergolas can be nice,

but most look better with

something growing up

them.

Roses and wisteria are

obvious choices and it’s

hard to imagine anything as

appealing, but there are numerous

climbers which will

provide shade and make a

beautiful display.

Plumbago auriculata has

clusters of powder-blue

flowers that will cover it

during summer. It likes

decent soil, regular watering

and lots of sun, and can

be hardpruned in winter or

spring,

The wonga wonga vine

(Pandorea pandorana), will

easily smother your pergola,

even if it’s 10m high. In

spring it’s covered in small,

creamy flowers. If you’re a

real Kiwi, Tecomanthe speciosa

will have to be on your

wish list. This native needs a

stout pergola for support. It

has glossy, green leaves and

clusters of creamy, tubular

flowers in spring.

Give it rich, moist soil

and shaded roots. It has a

pink relative called Tecomanthe

venusta which

likes a warmer climate.

Mandevilla splendens is

a native of Brazil and has

extraordinary, deep pink

flowers. Mandevilla laxa

is a hardier version, with

clusters of fragrant, creamy

white flowers. Mandevilla

sanderi `Rosea’ is successful

in a container and will

grow in a conservatory in

cooler areas.

The incredibly tough

bougainvillea will add instant

Mediterranean appeal

to your garden, even if your

soil’s not great and water is

scarce.

It does, however, like the

sun. It comes in various

shades, with the disadvantage

of long, sharp thorns.

If your pergola is set over

pavers and there’s no soil

handy, grow bougainvillea

in a pot. It may do even

better than in the ground.

Mitsubishi Triton a

capable all-rounder

I DON’T like it when I’m

left defeated.

However, I was beaten

when it came time to take

home a bulky piece of

furniture my wife and I

purchased. It was simply

too long for the deck

of a Mitsubishi Triton.

Transporting the item

resorted to plan B – waiting

for a large SUV to come my

way.

That didn’t leave me

disappointed with the Triton

though, it is still the useful

load carrier for the tradie

or recreational enthusiast,

and I did find other uses for

it such as picking up a new

television and taking a good

amount of recycling and

green waste to the transfer

station.

Early last year the Triton

had a major upgrade.

Well, it’s mostly a facelift,

but the bold new frontal

treatment gives the ute a

more aggressive look and, of

course, refinements in and

around the vehicle will keep

it fresh through 2020 and

beyond.

While there are a few

engineering upgrades,

the Triton still has the

same engine and basic

chassis and suspension

elements. That’s a good

thing, it can mix it with the

market frontrunners, it is

very much a preferential

purchase.

The evaluation ute was a

high-grade VRX-specced

double cab with automatic

transmission. The latter is an

all-new six-speed type, it is

a beauty with smooth shifts,

and in VRX form it also has

a paddle-shift sequential

mechanism. Mitsubishi

was listing this VRX as a

special offer during my

time with the test car, it was

sitting at around $50,000.

To my way of thinking,

that is extraordinary value

considering its specification

level and how well it stacks

up to the opposition.

Major items include

leather trim, keyless entry

and ignition, cruise control

and speed limiter, rear view

reversing camera, and a host

of advanced safety features.

Under the bonnet sits

a 2.4-litre four-cylinder

turbocharged diesel engine.

It is rated at 135kW with

437Nm of torque, both

figures are realised low in

the rev band at 3500rpm

and 2500rpm. Even though

it is diesel-fed it is a lively

engine and gets about its

work willingly, it is also one

of the quietest engines in its

class, and that’s a credit to

the engineers – getting a big

block four-potter to work

smoothly takes some doing.

It is evident that the Triton

has the benefit of much

MITSUBISHI TRITON VRX: Highly-regarded fourwheel-drive

system.

soundproofing, and it has

a well refined engine in the

first instance.

A lot of development

has also been carried out

to cut down fuel use, it is

now to the point where an

8.6-litre per 100km (33mpg)

combined cycle can be

claimed.

• Performance –

• Fuel usage –

During my testing time

the trip computer was

constantly listing at around

10l/100km (28mpg) with

a 7l/100km (40mpg)

readout showing at a

steady 100km/h, the engine

just loping over gently at

1700rpm.

On the subject of figures,

the Triton four-wheeldrive

has a tow rating of

3500kg and it will haul a

payload of 905kg in a deck

area measuring 1520mm

x 1470mm x 475mm

(depending on deck liner).

It also has a useful 220mm

of ground clearance, all of

these figures are right up

with market demand.

The test ute was riding

on 18in wheels with quite

chunky 265/60 Bridgestone

Dueler tyres. Even so,

they ride quietly, even

on coarse chip seal, they

SELWYN TIMES

also offer direct feedback

through the steering. Utes

aren’t known for their ideal

handling, but it was nice

to have some surety when

I pushed quickly through

some tricky inland corners.

The Triton has handling

ability unrealistic for a

working vehicle built on

a ladder chassis and load

bearing live rear axle. The

suspension isn’t firm but it is

designed just to capture the

traditional movement live

axles tend to generate.

Mitsubishi’s Super Select

II four-corner drive system

is highly regarded. For

the driver it’s a simple dial

operated mechanism which

sits centre console. Due to

its likely role off-road and

in loose surface conditions,

the Triton has lowish

early ratios broadening to

provide low speed engine

movement on the highway.

With so much torque on

tap filling the gaps between

ratios it isn’t something that

needs to be considered, the

engine has solid power flow

through the rev band.

On a short, undulating

off-road excursion it

impressed with its grip in

loose shingle and its ability

to crawl up inclines, low

ratio is very low promoting

gentle slow speed travel.

Today’s pick-up buyer is

reaping the benefits of long

and gradual development

processes. It’s no wonder

our market is led by utes,

the Triton is a vehicle you

can comfortably put the

family in for that trip into

the high country, skifield

access road, or to the beach

for a swim or surf.

It’s also the quintessential

tow and carry vehicle. If

only that deck had been just

a few centimetres longer.

Selwyn District Plan

PRIVATE PLAN CHANGE 60

Kirwee Central Properties Limited has lodged a private plan change request with Selwyn

District Council pursuant to Clause 21 of the First Schedule of the Resource Management

Act 1991.

Plan Change 60 (PC60) proposes to change the Selwyn District Plan (Township Volume

maps and text) to rezone approximately 17 ha of land at Kirwee from Living 2A to Living 1, to

allow for more intensive residential development.

The subject land is located within the Kirwee township, south of Hoskyns Road, north of

State Highway 73 (West Coast Road) and east of School Lane and Walter Place.

Part of the plan change request area is currently being developed in accordance with

existing consents to undertake a subdivision creating 45 sites. While PC60 will principally

affect the plan change area not already developed, there is the potential for future division of

larger sites within the existing subdivision.

PC60 proposes amendments to the Selwyn District Plan that include:

· amending the District Planning Maps to rezone the subject land from Living 2A to Living 1

· incorporating an outline development plan to coordinate and guide the future development

of the site.

The plan change request and the assessment of why it is needed can be read at Council’s

Rolleston Headquarters and Darfield Library and can be viewed online at service centres and

public libraries in Darfield, Leeston, Lincoln and Rolleston or at www.selwyn.govt.nz.

Submissions

Any person or organisation may make a submission supporting or opposing any aspect

of this plan change. Submissions must be written and in accordance with Form 5 of the

Resource Management Regulations, which is available from any Council service centre or

on the website.

Submissions may be:

Posted to: Planning Department, Selwyn District Council, PO Box 90, Rolleston 7643

Delivered to: A Council service centre in Darfield, Lincoln, Leeston or Rolleston.

Faxed to: (03) 347 2799 (if you fax your submission please post or deliver a copy to

the details above)

Emailed to: submissions@selwyn.govt.nz

At a later date, all submissions received will be summarised and published. Further

submissions will then be invited, allowing certain persons and organisations to support or

oppose any of the initial submissions. A Council hearing will then be arranged to consider

all submissions, after which the Council will decide whether to reject or approve the plan

change. Any submitter who is not satisfied with the Council’s decision may then appeal to

the Environment Court.

For further information regarding this plan change or the process outlined above, please

contact Jocelyn Lewes on (03) 347 2800 or (03) 318 8338.

The closing date for submissions is 5pm on Wednesday 19 February 2020.

Selwyn District Plan

PRIVATE PLAN CHANGE 62

D Marshall, L Martin & A Formosa, M & T Saunders, B Hammett and J & S Howson have

lodged a private plan change request with Selwyn District Council pursuant to Clause 21

of the First Schedule of the Resource Management Act 1991. The plan change seeks to

rezone approximately 60 ha of land at Leeston to allow for residential development.

Plan Change 62 (PC62) proposes to change the Selwyn District Plan to rezone the Living 1

(Deferred), Living 2 (Deferred) and part of the adjoining Rural (Outer Plains) land to Living 1

and Living 2 to facilitate the future development of approximately 410 residential sites.

The subject land is located on the western side of the township, and is generally bounded by

High Street to the south, Harmans Road to the west, Leeston Dunsandel Road to the north,

with a small area lying north of this road, and Ellesmere College and residential development

on Spring Place and Mountain View Place to the east.

PC62 proposes amendments to the Selwyn District Plan that include:

· amending the District Planning Maps to rezone the subject land

· incorporating an outline development plan to coordinate and guide the future development

of the site

· incorporating rules that manage subdivision, building and fencing within the plan

change area.

The plan change request and the assessment of why it is needed can be read at Council’s

Rolleston Headquarters and Leeston Library and can be viewed online at service centres

and public libraries in Darfield, Leeston, Lincoln and Rolleston or at www.selwyn.govt.nz.

What to watch for when

the mode of sale changes

Buying a property is rarely straightforward,

which is no surprise given that it’s the

biggest financial commitment most people

ever make. When you combine big sums of

money and a considerable level of emotional

investment, even the simplest transaction

can be stressful. We hear a lot about the need

for buyers to do their homework, but there

are plenty of reasons for sellers to be careful

too.

If you’re selling a property with a real estate

agent, you must sign an agency agreement

that sets out all the terms and conditions

of your contract with them, including how

much commission they will earn from the

sale and how the property will be marketed.

That’s why it’s so important to get legal advice

before you sign an agency agreement. If it’s a

standard agreement, you usually retain the

right to sell the property privately but it’s a

good idea to check this. If you have signed

an agreement with an agency but decide for

whatever reason to opt for a DIY private

sale, you should double and triple-check

whether the agency agreement requires you

to pay commission to the real estate agent or

agency.

Most agencies use the Real Estate Authority

(REA) standard clauses in agency

agreements, which set out certain terms

and conditions for the contract and the

payment of commission. According to the

standard clauses, commission is payable if

the property is sold within the active term

of the agreement (normally 90 days) or if it

is sold privately within six months after the

end of the term to a buyer that the agent had

earlier introduced to the property. In other

words, if the buyer visits an open home run

by the real estate agent, and then enters into a

private sale with the seller within six months

after the end of the agreement, the seller is

still obliged to pay commission to the agent.

This can vary depending on whether it is

a sole or general agreement – talk to your

lawyer before you sign up.

Both sole agency agreements and general

agency agreements provide for commission

payments after the agreed period ends. If a

seller enters into a sale within six months of

the agency agreement ending with a buyer

who was introduced by the real estate agent

(or the agent facilitated the sale), then the

seller must pay the agent commission just as

they would have done when the agreement

was still current. So, if the agent brings a

potential buyer to a property in March, the

agency agreement expires in April, and the

seller and purchaser enter into a private

sale agreement in May, the seller will have

to pay the agent commission. The sale must

become unconditional (which is when all

the conditions of the sale and purchase

agreement have been met), but it doesn’t

matter whether it goes unconditional during

or after the agency period, or during or after

the six months following expiry, so long as

the sale and purchase agreement is entered

into within those timeframes. So, before you

sign an agency agreement, ask the agency

if it uses standard REA clauses. If it doesn’t

you may be exposed to more complicated

commission risks and you should seek legal

advice.

Generally, any issues arising from the agency

agreement/arrangements between the seller

and the real estate agent won’t have a direct

effect on the separate sale and purchase

agreement between the seller and the buyer.

However, the wrangling involved may create

headaches or delays that you as a buyer

wouldn’t want to be troubled with.

If you do decide that you’re really keen on a

property in this situation, seek legal advice

before getting involved (and especially

before signing anything). Remember too

that the REA can help you with questions

and complaints about sales involving

licensed real estate agents, but it’s unable to

step in if you have a problem with a private

and unlicensed seller.

selling property, check out settled.govt.nz.

The Best Kept Secrets

to Selling Your Home

Selling Secret #1: The first impression is the

only impression

No matter how good the interior of your home looks,

buyers have already judged your home before they walk

through the door. You never have a second chance to

make a first impression. It’s important to make people

feel warm, welcome and safe as they approach the

house. Spruce up your home’s exterior with inexpensive

shrubs and brightly colored flowers. Entry ways are also

important. You use it as a utility space for your coat and

keys. But, when you’re selling, make it welcoming by

putting in a small bench or a vase of fresh-cut flowers.

Selling Secret #2: Always be ready to show

Your house needs to be “show-ready” at all times – you

never know when your buyer is going to walk through

the door. You have to be available whenever they want

to come see the place and it has to be in tip-top shape.

Don’t leave dishes in the sink, keep the dishwasher

cleaned out, the bathrooms sparkling and make sure

there are no dust bunnies in the corners. It’s a little

inconvenient, but it will get your house sold.

Selling Secret #3: The kitchen comes first

You’re not actually selling your house, you’re selling

your kitchen – that’s how important it is. The benefits of

remodeling your kitchen are endless, and the best part

of it is that you’ll probably get 85% of your money back.

It may be a few thousand dollars to replace countertops

where a buyer may knock $10,000 off the asking

price if your kitchen looks dated. The fastest, most

inexpensive kitchen updates include painting and new

cabinet hardware. Use a neutral-color paint so you can

present buyers with a blank canvas where they can start

envisioning their own style. If you have a little money

to spend, buy one fancy stainless steel appliance. Why

one? Because when people see one high-end appliance

they think all the rest are expensive too and it updates

the kitchen.

Selling Secret #4: Take the home out of your house

One of the most important things to do when selling

your house is to de-personalize it. The more personal

stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can

imagine themselves living there. Get rid of a third of your

stuff – put it in storage. This includes family photos,

memorabilia collections and personal keepsakes.

Staging simply means arranging your furniture to best

showcase the floor plan and maximize the use of space.

Selling Secret #5: Don’t over-upgrade

Quick fixes before selling always pay off. Mammoth

makeovers, not so much. You probably won’t get your

money back if you do a huge improvement project before

you put your house on the market. Instead, do updates

that will pay off and get you top dollar. Get a new fresh

coat of paint on the walls. Clean the curtains or go buy

some inexpensive new ones. Replace door handles,

cabinet hardware, make sure closet doors are on track,

fix leaky faucets and clean the grout.

Selling Secret #6: Conceal the critters

You might think a cuddly dog would warm the hearts

of potential buyers, but you’d be wrong. Not everybody

is a dog- or cat-lover. Buyers don’t want to walk in your

home and see a bowl full of dog food, smell the kitty

litter box or have tufts of pet hair stuck to their clothes.

It will give buyers the impression that your house is not

clean. If you’re planning an open home don’t leave your

pets around.

Selling Secret #7: Play the agent field

A secret sale killer is hiring the wrong real estate agent.

Make sure you have an agent who is totally informed.

They must constantly monitor the multiple listing

service (MLS), know what properties are going on the

market and know the comps in your neighborhood. Find

an agent who embraces technology – a tech-savvy one

has many tools to get your house sold.

Selling Secret #8: Light it up

Maximize the light in your home. After location, good

light is the one thing that every buyer cites that they

want in a home. Take down the drapes, clean the

windows, change the lampshades, increase the wattage

of your light bulbs and cut the bushes outside to let

in sunshine. Do what you have to do make your house

bright and cheery – it will make it more sellable.

Selling Secret #9: Half-empty closets

Storage is something every buyer is looking for and

can never have enough of. Take half the stuff out of

your closets then neatly organize what’s left in there.

Buyers will snoop, so be sure to keep all your closets and

cabinets clean and tidy.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Choosing a kitchen design

To some extent, kitchens design themselves with colours

and features enhancing the basic layout.

Positioning of sinks, cooktops and range hoods is best

determined at the time the house is designed. When

renovating a kitchen, there may be the option to work

with the existing drainage and wiring or to make changes,

which will likely add to the cost.

Repositioning or adding a new room for a larger or

lighter kitchen, or building in a pantry might also be an

option.

The kitchen is a place of activity so needs to be

functional and serviceable, to allow for family routine or

the needs of a keen cook. It may be the heart of the home

as a gathering point, blending into the living area. Less

popular today, are kitchens tucked away as a separate

room.

A pantry in the form of a scullery may be incorporated

for food preparation and dishwashing, with the kitchen

less of a workroom and more part of the living and

entertaining space.

Effective lighting is essential in any kitchen and

pantry. If there are windows, there will be natural

light during the daytime. LED lighting is best and now

the most common option for night time use and for

internal kitchens. Consider placement of lights whether

downlights or those hanging over an island to avoid

shadowing.

Sufficient bench space for food preparation is relative

A wood look is now popular in kitchens

to the degree of cooking likely to be undertaken. You may

want an island large enough for the family to sit around

or so the kitchen becomes more a gathering place than

preparation/food area. Areas to sit and work might also be

incorporated. Power points might be fitted so devices can

be charged.

Where an island sink, consider the distance to the

cooktop and refrigerator so there is efficient work flow.

Siting the dishwasher under the island and close to the

sink also makes sense. Another consideration is how

people will move in and around the kitchen. Two entry/

exit points are convenient and attractive though safety is

worth a thought.

The choice of appliances are dependent on a number

of factors. For example, cooktops need to be a certain

distance from the cabinetry, influencing choice and

number of cooking plates. A freestanding stove might be

to your liking though it may require a little more cleaning

than a fitted one.

Grey and monochromatic colours are popular for

kitchens, complemented by a wood look in some

cabinetry or the flooring. Glass and tile splash backs

are still in vogue while engineered stone benchtops

are favoured by many, as are soft closing drawers and

cupboards.

There are numerous innovative kitchen ideas available.

Determine your needs then if budget allows, add in a few

extra features you would like.
