Highway frustrations aired

By SHELLEY TOPP

Frustratedresidents spilled on to

StateHighway 1through

Woodend on Sunday, halting

traffic after awell­attended rally

in support of abypass.

The placard­waving protesters

left long traffic queues building

up to the north and south.

However,they were quickly

movedtothe roadside without

incident when the policearrived.

Senior Sergeant Andy Norton,

of the Rangiora police, said they

were called to ‘‘make sure

nobody got hurt’’.

The exasperationfelt by the

Woodend communityatliving

alongside abusy sectionofSH1

was expressedatthe gathering,

dubbed the Rallyfor Woodend.

It was held in Woodend’s Owen

Stalker Park, withmany among

the large crowdcarrying

placards calling for the longawaited

bypass.

The bypass, which would pass

east of Woodend, has been on the

drawingboard for decades,but

the government has set other

roadingpriorities, and no

funding has been set aside.

Woodend Community

Association presidentMark

Paterson, who is also aWoodend­

Sefton Community Board

member, said the Woodend

community had been waiting 40

years for asolution to the town’s

trafficproblems.

‘‘What you can’t argue with is

it’sjust not safe,’’ he said. ‘‘Does

someone havetodie on thatroad

before something is done?’’

He wantedthoseresponsible

for making the decision about a

bypass to considerthat, and

asked who would be responsible

if someone was killed.

‘‘Inthe private sector, if

dangerous problems like this are

ignored and peopleget hurt,

someone is fined, prosecuted or

Blockade ... Protesters, top, block State Highway 1through Woodend. Above, residents listen to aseries

WoodendSchoolprincipal

AdrienneSimpsonand the

Woodend­SeftonCommunity

Board’s chairwoman Shona

Powell, whoisalso on the Make

SH1 Safer Committee,both spoke

at the rally.

Speakers said the safety

measures planned for the

highway, andthe bypass, were

both needed because they would

make the town safer and abetter

place to live and visit.

‘‘To be clear,the safety

improvements and the bypass work

hand in hand,’’ Shona said.

‘‘Even if fundingwas announced

soon for the bypass, it would be years

before completion.

‘‘In the interimweneed the safety

improvements now so that people

can move around the town safely.’’

The rally was organised by

WaimakaririMPMatt Doocey to call

on the Government to include the

Woodendbypass in this year’s

Budget.

The National MP said the previous

National­ledGovernment had set up

the bypassin2017,but it had been

‘‘sequenced’’ behindother roading

projects.

However, withWoodend’sSH1

daily traffic counts expected to

reach 20,000 vehicle movements a

day this year,‘‘it is just not safe’’, he

said.

WaimakaririMayor Dan Gordon

offeredthe largecrowdaglimmer of

hope when he told them that the

councilsupported the bypass.

He said he wrote last yearto

Transport Minister Phil Twyford

seekingameeting to pushthe case

for the bypass.

The minister has agreed to meet

with him but adate has yet to be

confirmed.

Woodendcelebrant Jane Godfrey

was the rally masterofceremonies.

‘‘We are all here to make a

difference,’’ she toldthe crowd.

‘‘Buildthe bypass.Wehave had

enough.Itisnot safe in our village

Chub and Rita Fisher celebrated 77

years of marriage in Rangiora this

week.

Chub, aged 101, and Rita, 96,

married in the Holy Trinity Church in

Greymouth on February 10, 1943, after

meeting at one of the regular dances at

Schaefers Dance Hall.

They say enjoying each other’s

company and sticking together in

times of strife and sickness has made

their marriage well worth each day.

The couple, originally from the West

Coast, now live at Northbrook Villas.

Chub was born at Rewanui and Rita

at Blackwater.

The young couple lived in Rununga,

where Chub joined the Rununga

Volunteer Fire Brigade, which was

formed in 1943. Today, he is the only

surviving life member.

They later moved to Christchurch,

where they bought adairy.

Chub worked at asawmill as there

was not enough work for two at the

dairy, before moving on to abread

delivery round.

He also delivered the Christchurch

Star and Sport Extra in the evenings.

They sold the dairy after seven years

and built ahouse in Emlyn Place, off

Avonside Drive. Chub continued his

early­morning deliveries for the

bakehouse and worked at a

sheetmetal factory in the afternoon.

They owned acaravan and abach at

Kairaki Beach, and moved into a

townhouse in St Martins, which

became avictim of the Canterbury

earthquakes.

On retiring, they spent up to six days

We stand together

What an exciting Rally for Woodend

we had on Sunday.

About 400 residents from across the

Waimakariridistrict descended on

Owen Stalker Park, carrying their

placards and signs, and calling on the

Governmenttoinclude the Woodend

bypassinMay’s Budget.

The speakers represented all sides

of Waimakariri life, from Woodend

Schooltothe WoodendCommunity

Association and Make SH1 Safer

Committee,toour mayor, and myself as

local MP.

How proud we were to stand

together and be apart of this

community­led action to fight for our

residents, who feeldesperate when

they wonder how they are going to get

acrossSH1 at Woodend, with vehicle

movementsthis year expected to reach

20,000aday.

As acommunity, we were gutted to

hear last month that the Government

failedtocommittothe Woodend

bypassinits transport infrastructure

announcements.

It was aslap in the facefor our

Algal bloom

warning lifted

The algal bloom health warning

for the Ashley/Rakahuri River

at Rangiora’s Cones Road

bridge has been lifted.

Recent cyanobacteria

surveys of the river at the

bridge has shown the cover of

potentially toxic algae (benthic

cyanobacteria) has decreased

and is now below athreshold

that is of concern to public

health. The rapid decrease in

cover is due to intermittent

flows at the site.

Canterbury Medical Officer

of Health Dr Alistair Humphrey

says Environment Canterbury’s

sampling of the river at the

bridge will continue to the end

of March, before resuming at

the start of next summer.

Ahealth warning remains in

place for the river at State

Highway 1.

residents to hear how Auckland got

billions while Canterbury received a

mere $159 million,with nothingfor

North Canterbury —and no

commitment to the Woodend Bypass.

We havebeen told there is about

$4 billion still to be allocated to

infrastructure projects.

With the Government’s Budget for

2020 due to be delivered in May,we

needed morethan ever to make sure

our voices are heard before then.

The idea for arally came out of my

public meeting last year on safety

issues on SH1.

At Sunday’s well­supported rally, I

called on Transport Minister Phil

Twyfordtocome down to Waimakariri

to meet with our Woodend School

community,local businesses, residents

and our council, becauseIbelieve he

should frontour residents directly.

We haveawindow of opportunity

before the Government decides on its

roadingpriorities,and it is only

throughstanding together as a

community thatwewill have our voices

heard.

Push to create acitizens' assembly

By RACHEL MACDONALD

It was all about power to the

people at the recent Aotearoa

Climate Emergency (ACE)

network meeting in

Swannanoa.

The event, at the start of this

month, was as an initial step

towards what the organisers

hope will lead to the

establishment of the country’s

first­ever government­funded

citizens’ assembly.

It attracted guest speakers

including Waimakariri MP

Matt Doocey.

The idea for using this type of

democratic, non­partisan

model to drive government

policy sprang from the Irish

citizens’ assembly in 2016,

explains ACE secretary Phil

Saxby.

He also aligns it with the

consultation process, with

which he was involved, that

saw the MMP voting system

introduced here in 1994.

In the Irish case, acouncil of

100 members, including a

government­appointed

chairwoman, was convened to

address political issues arising

from the Irish Constitution,

including debates surrounding

abortion, the ageing

population, and climate

change.

The activities of that group

are ongoing.

‘‘The Irish citizens’ assembly

meets once amonth in Dublin.

Members are recruited

professionally, and they get

together to discuss issues and

make recommendations to the

government, which then go to

full public consultation and a

referendum,’’ Phil says.

‘‘It has been shown to be a

highly effective form of

creating change. It’s about

giving people enough

information to make educated

decisions and establishing a

public mandate for finding a

way forward.’’

Why should agroup with a

national membership choose

Swannanoa as the seat for a

nationwide citizens’ assembly

on climate change?

‘‘This has to be about the

country, as well as the cities. It

has to come out of the whole

community. We’re hoping the

steering committee will be able

to offer rural perspectives, as

well as urban perspectives

from places like Christchurch

and Auckland,’’ Phil says.

He says the next step is to

take the proposal for acitizens’

assembly to the country’s MPs,

so that it can be taken forward

in parliament.

‘‘We adopted aconstitution

at this meeting, and elected a

committee. We now need to

push for across­party

commitment to establish a

citizens’ assembly for climate

change, just as France and

Canada have already done, and

the UK is in the process of

doing,’’ he says.

‘‘We need to be asking the

right questions: how can we do

things better in the agriculture

and transport sectors, for

example. Yes, it’s going to be

difficult and expensive to

create change, but the longer

we leave it, the more costly it

will become.’’

Young and old legs stride to race victories

By SHELLEY TOPP and

Age was no barrier to success in

last weekend’s Coast­to­Coast

endurance race.

Eyrewell teenager Henry

Sparkmadeabig impression in

the two­day multi­sport event,

winning his category and

finishing 15thoverallinthe

individualcompetition.

Henry, aged 17, completed the

243kmrace in 12hr36min 15sec,

47 minutes aheadofthe secondplaced

competitor in the school

15­18 years category.

At the other end of the

spectrum, Glentui’s Fred

Howard, who turns66this month,

won the vintage malemountainrun

section, clocking 4hr 10min

15sec.

Fredwas among the oldest

athletes competing.

For Henry, the two­day race

began at 7am last Friday at

Kumara Beach on the West

on New BrightonBeachin

‘‘Overall, the race went really

was just coming up as the start

hooter went off.

‘‘I was feeling pumped and

ready to go.The first run and bike

wentwell and Imanagedtoget

intothe first bike bunch.’’

However,because of high river

levels, the mountain­run course

was changedand the different

terrainprovedchallenging.

‘‘Weran over the viaduct but

still withplenty of off­roadtracks

and river bed,’’ he said. ‘‘I was

quite happywith my run time,

but my legs were not conditioned

to running overtar­seal road so

theyfelt like jelly by the end.’’

On day two, withthe river up,

the kayak section was also

difficult.

‘‘The kayakwas the toughest

partofthe race for me. Iwas

pleased just to stay upright the

whole way downand superrelieved

to see the gorge bridge

and my support crew.”

Henry was thrilled withthe

support from his local Eyrewell

communityduring the final

stages of the race, Geoff said.

‘‘BeinganEyrewell boy, South

Eyre Road was home country for

him and he lovedthe support of

the locals who came outonthe

Meanwhile, Fredisthinking

about contestingthe two­day

in 2017, but carried an injury

which hampered his effort.

KAIKOURA A&P SHOW, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 22

North Canterbury News, February 13, 2020

Show to reflect district’sprogress

By DAVID HILL

President Matt Anderson

hopes this year’s Kaikoura

A&P Show will reflect how

far the district has come

since the 2016 earthquake.

The 2017 show was

cancelled after the quake,

while the following year’s

show was hampered by

Cyclone Gita and alack of

road access.

But last year’s show was

asuccess and Matt says the

show committee wants to

build on that this year.

‘‘It was good to see so

many people having fun

last year and this year

we’ve got plenty for the

kids to do, so it will be

another great day out.’’

Old favourites will be

back, such as the digger for

the children.

‘‘The kids just loved it.

The last couple of years

they’ve been lining up

until 5pm.’’

Matt and his wife Riya

are looking forward to

their second year as show

president and this year’s

theme of natural fibres.

‘‘We are encouraging

participants to dress up in

natural fibre, such as

throwing on awoollen hat

or rug. Of course, it might

get pretty hot if we get a

sunny day.’’

Once again the show is

well supported with trade

sites, he says.

‘‘It was nearly afull­time

job for Riya and Itoget

round and thank all the

SHOW PROGRAMME

trade sites last year.’’

Anew addition this year

is Bulloch Road Bows from

the Tasman region, which

will be making the trip

down to set up adisplay of

bows and arrows. They will

have an archery area for

people to have ago.

The Kaikoura Young

Farmers Club will once

again be helping out and

Matt is keen for the

Kaikoura High School

teenag club to be involved.

‘‘I’m keen to get young

people involved.

‘‘We’ve got astrong

committee, but any other

help we can get is very

much appreciated.’’

Since last year’s show

the committee has

invested in laying new

grass in the horse arena

and it has been irrigated in

the lead­up to the show to

ensure it looks ‘‘nice and

lush and green’’, so it is a

bit easier on the horses’

hooves, Matt says.

He says the show will be

in good hands next year,

with vice­president Colin

Nimmo ready to take over.

‘‘We have areal good guy

next in line. Now that he’s

settled into town, he’s been

putting in alot of effort to

keep the show going.’’

KAIKOURA A&P SHOW, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 22

North Canterbury News, February 13, 2020

Billy Black an ambassador for wool

Wool is set to take centre stage

at the Kaikoura A&P Show this

month.

With ‘‘natural fibre’’ being

the theme for this year’s show,

iconic North Island entertainer

Billy Black Woolman is

expected to be apopular

attraction, president Matt

Anderson says.

‘‘We had him at the show a

few years ago and he’s very

informative and entertaining

about the benefits of wool.

‘‘He has apig and asheep

that he shears and does afew

things with wool such as trying

to set himself on fire, which

doesn’t work of course, because

wool isn’t flammable.

‘‘It’s about showing how good

aproduct wool is.’’

On his website, Billy Black

Woolman says his show is borne

out of his many years of

experience as ‘‘a natural fibre

severer technician’’, otherwise

known as aprofessional sheep

shearer.

‘‘My journey took me to the

outback of Australia, through

the wild, wild west of Wyoming,

United States, to the Berlin

Wall and back,’’ Billy says.

‘‘I was involved in aworld

sheep shearing record where

8500 sheep were shorn in one

day. Ishore 675 of that lot. That

record still stands today.’’

Billy is considered an

❛It’s aboutshowing

how good aproduct

wool is.❜

—Billy Black Woolman

ambassador of the wool

industry and says he is keen to

show the ecological benefits of

wool.

‘‘It is asafe natural fibre that

can be worn year round. It

insulates in the winter and

breathes in the summer.

‘‘Moreover, wool is asafe

fibre in that it is resistant to

fire, unlike synthetic clothing

which many of us wear. I

demonstrate this by setting

myself alight with ablow

torch.’’

He says his own challenge on

stage is to get everyone to

‘‘either smile, laugh or talk to

their friends about the ‘wow, I

never knew that’ factor of what

they have just seen’’.

‘‘I know that Iachieve this in

every show and Ihave kept that

going now for over 17 years.

And, yes, Ilive on adrenaline.’’

Billy Black Woolman will be

performing two shows, one in

the morning at 10.30am and one

in the afternoon at 2.30pm.

Park-and-ride option

gets council backing

NEWS

North Canterbury News, February 13, 2020

17

By DAVID HILL

The Waimakariri District Council is

backing the creation of park­and­ride bus

services for thedistrict.

Park and ride facilities, waste reduction,

urbandevelopment, Fire and Emergency

New Zealand (FENZ)funding, water

supplies, rural leases and the Coldstream

Rd tennisdevelopmentwere amongthe

majortopics discussed at the recent

council meeting.

Councillorsvoted to endorse

Environment Canterbury’s preferred parkand­ride

option of four busruns each

week­daymorning directly fromRangiora

and Kaiapoi to the centralcity and

returning eachevening.

This would incura$30 ratesrisefor

urbanratepayers and$10 for rural

ratepayers.

Deputy Mayor Neville Atkinson backed

the proposal, saying ‘‘it’salready

happening’’.

‘‘There’shalf adozen cars parkedat

Tram Road on week days,sowealready

know it works.This is an intergenerationalchange.

If no­one starts it,

then it will never happen, so our

generation needstostart it.’’

Concerns wereraised overthe Ministry

for the Environment’s proposed waste levy

increase.

Cr Robbie Brine acknowledged the levy

needed to rise,but not at the level

proposed as it couldhave‘‘a negative

impact’’. But he hopeditwould leadtoa

regional solution to recycling.

Councillors opposed aDepartment of

InternalAffairsproposal to fundFENZ

through rates, rather than insurance.

MayorDan Gordonsaid ‘‘volunteer

brigades should be properly funded’’,

including vehicles and function rooms, so

they werenot having to constantly

fundraise.

Cr PhilipRedmondsuggested FENZ

shouldbefunded, at leastinpart, through

taxation,asnot all fireswere related to

properties.

Cr Atkinson began the meeting by

commendingthe efforts of localvolunteer

firefighters in respondingtolast week’s

Ashley Riverfire.

At present, the councilhas more than

490 leases and licences on councilland,

with around 265 for ruralgrazing androad

crossings. The remaining 230 are reserves,

commercialorcommunity­basedleases

and licences.

Anew land leasing and licences

managementstrategy has beenapproved

and can be viewed on the council website.

The proposed Coldstream Rd tennis

development is proceedingtothe resource

consent stage to build 10 tennis courts. The

council is contributing $1 milliontowards

the project, withthe Rangiora and

Southbrook tennisclubs planning to make

contributions from the sale of their

existing sites.

Mr Gordon says the project is an

importantone for tennis in the district.

‘‘We are now at apoint wherethis looks

like it will be areality which is great for

tennisinthe Waimakariri district. Tennis

clubs aroundthe district are very

supportive of thishappening because they

see thevalue of thisinvestment for the

sport of tennis as awhole.’’

With work on Stadium Waimakariri

progressingnext door, contractors will be

asked to linkthe services to theboundary

of the proposed tennis site.

By SHELLEY TOPP

The success of the inaugural

Inflatafest,held in Rangiora’s

VictoriaParkonWaitangiDay, has

given the organiser muchto

consider.

Alarge crowd packedthe park for

the event, whichran fromnoonto

5pm.Itincluded 16 children’s

entertainmentinflatables.

OrganiserGraham Moss, of

Mandeville, who ownsFun HQ,said

he was happywith theturnout.

The feedbackfrompeople

attending the event had been great.

Parentsliked theidea of the entry

feegivingkids unlimitedaccess to

each inflatable throughout the day,

Grahamsaid.

He is keen to hold another

Inflatafestnext year,but thatisgoing

to require much consideration about

howtoprevent it frombeing moved

to abigger venue.

‘‘Ireally likeVictoria Parkasa

venue. Aesthetically,itisthe place to

be,’’ he said.

However, if the event becamemore

popular next year, abigger venue,

maybeDudley Park, might havetobe

considered.

He spoke about the story

ehind the treaty, noting

hat several iwi and hapu

By DAVID HILL

Work above and below ground is

progressing at the new Stadium

Waimakariri.

The taller parts of theframing were put

up last month, giving the public an ideaof

the scaleofthe stadium on Coldstream Rd,

Rangiora.

The new facility will cost around $28

million. It has afloor size of about 6000

square metres and will house fourindoor

courts configuredfor futsal,handball,

korfball,volleyball,netball, badminton

and basketball.

It willalso house acentralfitness

facility, changingrooms, and coachingand

meetingspaces.Itwill seatabout500

spectators.

As the build continues, foundationpads

are beingprogressively constructed in line

with steel frames being delivered to the

site and then erected.

The latest workfocuses on erecting the

steel for zones one,two, three and four,

which includes the courtfacilities.

Drainage and service infrastructure for

the plantand changing rooms is almost

complete, ready for the layingofthe

concrete slab.

‘‘Overall, the build is progressingwell

and, overthe comingmonths, we will

continue to see more framing going up

alongsidethe on­ and under­ground work,

before the focus shifts to putting aroof

over thestadium,’’ aWaimakariri District

Councilspokesperson said.

The siteonColdstreamRoad in

Rangiora places the multi­usesports

facility near other sporting grounds such

as the MainPower Ovalfor cricket,the

Waimakariri Hockey Turf and the Maria

AndrewsPark football ground.

It is alsobeside land earmarked fora

proposed 10­courtoutdoor tennis facility.

Once complete, the stadium will be

operated by the North Canterbury Sport

and Recreation Trust.

It is expected that construction will

finish aroundMay 2021,readyfor its fitout.

Fed Farmers urge patience

Federated Farmers is urging the

EnvironmentSelectCommittee to ditch

the Resource Management Act

Amendment Billand wait for the related

concurrentprocesses on its work

programme to play out.

The bill pre­empts and jeopardises

the comprehensive reviewofthe

Resource Management Actbythe

specialist panel appointed by the

Government, FederatedFarmers’

environmentspokesman Chris Allen

told the committeethis week.

It put the cart before the horse on the

Essential Freshwater proposals, which

sought feedback from the publicon

some of the samematters as in the bill.

FederatedFarmers is concerned that

while the Governmentisconsultingon

these exactproposals as part of the

EssentialFreshwater discussiondocument

process, it is concurrently

drafting its answers into the bill —

before assessing and addressing

feedback and concernsraised in the

morethan 17,500submissions received.

He says thebill is at odds with its key

aimsofreducing complexity, increasing

certainty, restoring public participation

and improving the act’s processes.

Mr Allen says fast­tracking freshwater

planning processes oftenbecame the

‘‘survival of the best resourced’’, with

smallercouncils left behind.

begins at Gore Bay

By SHELLEY TOPP

The first in aseries of surfingworkshops

began on Wednesday last week.

The Surfing For Farmers Canterbury

workshops are being organisedby

agricultural journalist and keenopenwater

swimmer Sandra Taylor.

‘‘We had 26 farmers turn up at Gore

Bay on Wednesday, which was fantastic.

‘‘We have been abletodothis with

funding from NorthCanterbury

Charitable Trust and FMG.’’

The programmewas launched at

SumnerBeach, during January and is

part of amental health initiative

encouragingfarmers to get off their farms

and into the water.

Surfing for FarmersCanterburyisan

extensionofafarmer mental health and

well­being initiative started by Stephen

Thomson in Gisbornelast year.

Stephen is asurfer,farmerand rural

He was inspired to establish Surfing

documentary Resurface.

The documentary showedhow surfing

helpedheal American war veterans

sufferingfrom post traumatic stress

disorder (PTSD).

‘‘Stephen saysthe one line in the

documentary that particularly resonated

with him was when the war vet described

how he usedtowake up every day

wanting to shoot himself,’’ Sandrasaid.

‘‘Nowhewakesupwanting to go

surfing.’’

Sandra swimsinthe ocean all year

roundand knows the feeling of wellbeingshe

gets from beinginthe water.

She wanted farmers to sharethe

experience.

‘‘There are alot of reportsemerging

now about the scienceofcold­water

therapy and surfingintreating anxiety,

depression and other mental health

issues,’’ she said.

Sandra got funding from Rabobank and

the NorthCanterbury RuralSupport

Trusttoget Surfing for Farmers

Canterbury up­and­runningatSumner,

but it was alwaysher intentiontorun the

programme at Gore Bay also.

‘‘We are still running at Sumner on

Tuesday nights, withfarmers coming

In the lead­up to Gumboot Friday on

April 3, Mike King and 30 supporters plan

to travel 2000km from Bluff to Cape

Reinga on afleet of 20 tractors to host

free community and school events

throughout the country.

While details are still being finalised,

the group plans to stop in Christchurch

on March 9and 10, before passing

through North Canterbury on March 11.

The Gumboot Friday initiative was

launched last year and aims to raise

$5 million for free counselling.

Last year, $1.3m was raised to provide

10,670 critical counselling sessions to

more than 2500 children and young

adults.

New Zealand's latest suicide statistics

released in August last year show that, in

the year to June 30, 685 people took their

lives.

“Now, more than ever, we need Kiwis

to reach out to friends and whanau,’’ Mr

King says.

Feedback sought on

town centre review

By DAVID HILL

What will Rangiora’s town centre look like

in 2030? Residentsare being invited to do

alittle crystal­ball gazing as the

WaimakaririDistrict Councilreviews its

Rangiora Town Centre Strategy.

MayorDan Gordonsays the review is

timely as the district continues to grow.

‘‘There will be lots of potential fornew

businesses, so we want to hear what

people’s thoughts are.

‘‘This strategy is not just about

businesses. We want to develop avibrant

town centre wherepeople can enjoy

spending time and createpublic areas that

promote our residents’ health, happiness

and wellbeing.’’

The town’spopulation has passed 18,000,

is expected to reach 30,000 by 2048.More

than 60 percent of Waimakariri residents

view Rangiora as their primary shopping

destination.

Rangiora’stown centrealso attracts

visitors from the Hurunui district and

northern Christchurch.

The council’sbusiness and centres

manager, Simon Hart, saysthat as the

district grows, there is an opportunity to

identifygaps in the marketand to help

developers ‘‘fill the gaps in the right way’’.

‘‘We do wellinboutique shopping, food

and the supermarkets, but thereare other

areaswhereweare losing retailspend into

the city.’’

As the district grows, Rangiorais

expected to needanadditional 6to9

hectaresofbusinessspace.

Mr Hart says this can be achieved

through better utilisation of existing

spaces, building upwards with more multistoreybuildings,orbyextending

the

business 1zone.

‘‘There are still anumber of houses

withinthe business 1zone and that’s

normal. But someofthoseowners willbe

aware of this, so there could be

opportunities for them to take advantage

of that. Otherbusinesseswill need to

consider ‘arewespecifically atown centre

function or shouldwebeinamore rural or

amore industrial area’.

‘‘We are also lookingatthe height,

what’sappropriate, whatcan be increased

and what are the typesofactivities which

could operate on the second or third

floor?’’

One option could be town centre living

on the upper floors of buildings. Mr Hart

says the eight upstairsapartments being

built in the Burger King development will

be watchedwith interest.

The existingbusiness1zone takes in the

south side of Blackett St, westofEast Belt,

the northernside of Queen St, hooks

By DAVID HILL

Kaiapoi will get anew parkingfacility,

whilethe cycleway from the townto

Belfast is astep closer.

Councillorshave agreed to delegate

authoritytothe utilities and roading

committee to decideonthe site for

Kaiapoi’s park­and­ridefacility, subject

to arecommendation from the Kaiapoi­

detaileddesign of the cycleway was also

approved at lastweek’s council meeting.

The park­and­ride facility will allow

Environment Canterbury to proceedwith

its planstorun commuter buses directly

from Kaiapoi into the central city each

week day.

The Kaiapoi­Tuahiwi Community

boardwill be asked to choosebetween

It is proposed to provide 40 park­andride

parks, as well as parks for employees

of local businesses and two­hour parks

for customer use.Itisexpected to cost

$250,000.

MayorDan Gordonsays councillors

agreedtoback the design plans for the

Belfast to Kaiapoi commuter cycleway,

which has alreadybeen approved by the

Kaiapoi­Tuahiwi Community Board.

The proposed shared cycleway routeis

along the western side of Main North Rd

and thenalong Vickery and Peraki

streets.

‘‘I thinkit’s avery exciting

developmentand one that has been

neededfor sometime.’’

Theproject is expectedtocost nearly

$1.8million and is subject to aTransport

Agencysubsidy of 51 percent.

At present, cyclists travelling from

Christchurch to Kaiapoi need to crossthe

narrow, old Waimakariri bridge on Main

North Rd.

Arecreational cycleway into Kaiapoi

will alsobeconsidered as part of next

year’sLong Term Plan,while Enterprise

North Canterbury is continuing to

explore funding options to create the
