relieved to hear the Christchurch

Northern Corridor opening has

been delayed by six months.

The CNC was due to open in

the middle of this year, but last

week the New

announced more

time was needed

to complete the

The original

scope of the

project has been

extended to include

a third southbound lane on

a clip-on cycleway.

St Albans resident Mark Wilson

said the community are “somewhat

thankful” for the delay.

“The community will be somewhat

thankful for a reprieve of the

effects of this motorway for six

months, but it’s still there. Until

decisions are made to put our

community first, then there is no

relief,” he said.

Views on cricket nets sought

In Brief

• By Bea Gooding

COMMUNITY feedback

is being sought over a new

proposal to replace cricket nets at

Elmwood Park.

Last year, the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community

Board approved a proposal made

by the Old Boys Collegian cricket

club for the construction of a

new pavilion.

However,

the community

board did

not approve

the lease for

new nets

because some

Ivo

Wynn-Williams

people in the

community

had raised

concerns that they were too big,

would dominate the park and

would be noisy.

Strowan resident Ivo Wynn-

Williams opposed last year’s

original proposal of the nets because

of noise, safety and congestion

concerns. However, the new

proposal sees the nets placed

further away from residential

houses which he preferred.

“The nets would’ve been directly

placed in front of people’s

homes, including my own, with

no sound barrier and homeowners

would’ve had to endure

Irish bar lively for St Patrick’s Day

• By Bea Gooding

ST PATRICK’S Day festivities

in Ireland may have been

cancelled, but that didn’t stop

local residents heading to their

favourite Irish pub last week to

celebrate.

The drinks were flowing

at Irish pub Bailies Bar in St

Albans attracting a lively crowd.

Adorned in green, patrons were

treated to a special performance

by the O’Neill School of Irish

Dance.

St Albans resident Mike

Poulter has been going to Bailie’s

Bar for the last few years and

said the coronavirus outbreak

did not put him off going to the

bar to celebrate, but people were

still concerned about it nonetheless.

“Last year this place was

chock-a-block and the turnout

today is nowhere near what

it used to be like,” said Mr

Poulter.

“I think it’s [coronavirus] a

bigger threat than we think, but

until something happens here

it’s not going to put everyone off

from celebrating today.”

Social distancing guidelines

restaurants to close days before

weeks, followed by the cancellations

of public parades and

Although this is not the case

yet here in New Zealand, Mr

Poulter believed many were

bracing themselves for further

restrictions and potential selfisolation.

the downstream effects of the

“The CNC Alliance expects

to open the motorway from the

Waimakariri bridge to Cranford

downstream of the Christchurch

Northern Corridor has

been acted on by council, has

continue to do so.

Through three rounds of

public engagement in 2018-19,

aspects of the work evolved.

Examples include traffic

management design south of

Berwick St, and the extent of

traffic calming and the safe

speed zones. Further consultation

will be taking place soon in

areas where council staff have

identified a need for even more

public input.

A REVIEW will not be

undertaken over the original

resource consent for a large

house on a residential street in

Riccarton.

Commissioner David Mountfort

was deciding whether a

section 128 review was required

of the new multi-storey house at

36 Rata St after concerns over the

original consent.

It was to consider whether

there were any inaccuracies in

the original consent lodged in

2016 for the house to be built before

a subsequent application was

given the green-light to go-ahead

by the city council in 2018.

Last year, city council received

complaints from four nearby

properties along with concerns

raised from the Riccarton Bush-

Kilmarnock Residents’ Association

and the Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board.

The large house is being constructed

for carpet retailer and

interior design service Nextdore

director Michael Dore.

Although a review is not

required, there were inaccuracies

in both the plans of the 2018

house.

These were particularly in

relation to the ground levels and

shading diagrams which showed

with Orion Group and is hosted

by power company Connetics.

Julia hopes to gain a number of

key skills and experience to aid

her on the road to becoming a

geneticist.

“This programme might be

able to help me get some feedback

from experts and mentors on the

project I’m working on, and that

I’ll be able to use later in life.”

It is often a man’s world in her

chosen industry, but she believes

now is the time for girls to lead

the world.

“Don’t listen to the people who

tell you that you can’t do it.”

No review over

multi-storey house

the 2016 house in an incorrect

location.

“The overlay on the elevations

which was intended to show the

2016 recession plane breach if

the house had been constructed

was accurate to the extent it was

based on the actual floor levels of

the existing 2016 house but inaccurate

in that those floor levels

were not as shown on the 2016

plans,” Mr Mountfort

said.

But he said most inaccuracies

are very minor and would not

have impacted the original decision.

“The only inaccuracies which I

considered to be worthy of close

scrutiny related to recession

planes – which had the potential

to increase shading and visual

dominance over and above the

2016 consented baseline,” Mr

Mountfort said.

He said the effects of the 2018

design were to be less than

minor.

Citizen’s Advice Bureau:

How we can support you

AN INCREASE in the number

Citizen’s Advice

Bureau manager

Mollie Howarth

writes about

how the CAB

can support

you through the

toughest of times

UNLESS YOU have been living

under a rock for the past week,

you can’t escape the constant,

often at times frantic reoccurring

messages in the media regarding

Covid-19, also known as the

coronavirus.

In Canterbury, it is fair to say

that we have already been through

several traumatic and stressful

events such as the Canterbury

earthquakes in 2011 and the

March 15, 2019, mosque attacks.

For many community-based

organisations or small businesses,

if you are the person

responsible for leading your

organisation it can feel like another

“layer cake of stress” that is

being added to your already busy

workload. Many of your workers

or volunteers may be feeling

quite anxious and uncertain

about the future.

One of the key

metaphors I often use

when explaining selfcare

and boundaries

to volunteers is that

of a lifeguard. If

you were on a beach

looking out into the

sea and you notice

someone putting up their hand

for help, you swim out to them

and you let them grab on to you.

Then who goes down? The short

answer is you both do.

However, if you swim out to

the person, give them the “floating

device” so they are supported

until they can start swimming

by themselves then you both

make it back to shore. If we don’t

practise self-care during times

of high stress then we won’t have

anything left to support other

more vulnerable members of our

community.

Anyone feeling stressed,

anxious or depressed as a result

of Covid-19 can call or text 1737

and access a trained professional.

One of the things I enjoy about

the work that I do, is that at

Citizens Advice Bureau, our volunteers

often encounter people in

difficult situations.

Most of the time they are

able to provide the person with

personalised information so

they can look at the options and

choices available to them. This

usually helps the person to feel

like they have some measure of

control over their situation.

Below is a link to our public

webpage which lists the support

services available to workers and

businesses affected by Covid-19:

www.cab.org.nz/article/

KB00039570.

If you are feeling anxious

about going out in public but

have some concerns that you

want to discuss you can access

our service free from a pre-paid

cellphone or landline on 0800

367 222, email us or use our

online chat.

Cycle lanes mooted

for Waimairi Rd

of cyclists using Waimairi Rd

has led to a proposal to install

cycle lanes on the busy road.

Nearly 300 cyclists travel along

the road daily, therefore the city

council is seeking community

feedback on the proposal.

The city council transport

planning and delivery manager

Lynette Ellis said the number

of cyclists using the road has

increased with the popularity of

the uni-cycle route.

“Along with the success of the

major cycle route, there has been

a lot more pressure on the Waimairi

Rd area, with a number

of accidents involving cyclists,”

said Ms Ellis.

“In order to ensure a safer

environment for cyclists and

motorists alike, cycle lanes are

being considered to ease transport

pressure.”

The numbers of cyclists using

the uni-cycle route which crosses

Waimairi Rd at Dovedale Ave

has climbed by up to 20 per cent

annually.

Under the proposal, on-street

parking will be removed between

Peer St and Dovedale Ave

along with sections on the west

side.

CYCLE LANES: A large

increase in cyclists using

Waimairi Rd has prompted a

proposal to install cycle lanes

on the busy road.

PHOTO: NEWSLINE ​

Two-hour parking restrictions

on weekdays are also proposed

for the east side of Waimairi Rd

from 8am to 6pm during the

months of March to November.

Said Ms Ellis: “Any changes

will be incorporated into

planned work to resurface

Waimairi Rd over the 2020-2021

summer period.”

In your

neighbourhood

Christchurch’s newest

independent bookstore

“Science tells us that young children develop best when they are read to.”

The Clocks Bookshop, Christchurch’s

newest independent bookstore, opened

December 2019. The Clocks is a real

bookstore; we don’t sell toys, games, lotto

tickets or stationery, just wonderful books.

The Clocks specialises in Children’s

books, Cookbooks, and Crime and

Mystery books, but has a terrific range of

fiction and non-fiction, too.

“You have so many

beautiful children’s

books” our customers

often tell us.

We are biased of course, and so can’t help

but agree, but we do aim to have the best

range of children’s books in the city.

For the youngest we have interactive

touch-and-feel, lift-the-flap and board

books. Next, is an extensive selection

of beautiful picture books, some telling

classic tales, others gentle stories with

subtle messages on love, loss, and

friendship. There is plenty of bedtime

reading to help get toddlers to sleep, too.

Also at The Clocks is a carefully selected

range of classic and contemporary titles for

older children and young adults, including

books specifically designed and written for

the dyslexic or reluctant reader.

Anyone can find a recipe for almost

anything online these days. So why does

The Clocks Bookshop have more than

700 titles on cooking, drinking and food

writing, and why are sales of cookbooks on

the upswing?

Well, because cookbooks offer more than

just recipes. In many ways they are like big,

beautiful story books that evoke emotions,

and ask and answer questions about

society and culture. And, unlike online

recipes, cookbooks have permanence-they

can be passed down from generation to

generation (with all the scribblings in the

margins, the dog-ears and food-stained

pages) thus contributing to a sense of

family history.

We are such big fans of the ‘Golden

Age of Mysteries’ that we named our

bookstore after the Agatha Christie novel,

‘The Clocks.’ Golden Age mysteries were

written during times

that didn’t have

CCTV, DNA,

mobile phones

and technology.

Rather, it’s the

brainpower of

the detective

that is the most

vital to the stories

of Christie, (more

than 60 titles in stock!)

Margery Allingham,

Georges Simenon, Dorothy L. Sayers and

Francis Durbridge. So, if you are fan of

the Golden Age, or the more hard-boiled

American style of the likes of Raymond

Chandler, Dashiell Hammett and James M.

Cain, come in and have a sleuth around.

Contemporary crime fans are also well

served with many titles from CWA Dagger

winners such as James Lee Burke, Donna

Leon, Ann Cleeves, and Peter James. And

our ‘Crime Down-under’ features all the

novels of Christchurch’s own, Paul Cleave.

We would love to see you, 12 Normans

Expert hairdressing and a

friendly place to gather…

Hairdresser Paula Page sees

her new Aroha Salon in Kendal

Avenue as more than just a

hairdressing business – it’s also

a warm, friendly gathering place

for people in the community,

she says.

After recently returning to

Christchurch, Paula opened

Aroha Salon in October 2019,

having had many years of

experience in the industry

both with her previous salon,

Clipotec, in Riccarton Road,

and on the Chatham Islands.

The Kendal Avenue premises

had been a hair salon, but

when she took over there was

nothing more than basins left.

Paula has transformed the space with new

fittings and a smart colour scheme – black

and white with splashes of red, and at the

same time has instilled a warm friendly

atmosphere, which she says clients are

enjoying.

One of her whanau, JoAnn Tuuta, is

Paula Page in her stylish Burnside salon, Aroha Salon

assisting her in the salon, while JoAnn’s

son Shasha Tuuta Thompson has created

the distinctive salon logo.

Drawing on her expertise and

experience, Paula provides a professional

and helpful service covering all facets of

hairdressing, and catering for all ages and

personal styles.

“Whoever walks through

the door, my aim is to meet

everyone’s needs,” she says.

She uses the environmentally

friendly product range,

LuminArt, which is made

in Australia and provides

protection and conditioning for

the hair with its natural organic

ingredients.

Having always enjoyed

working with people, Paula

says she learns

a lot from her

clients, and

is also keen

to help them

where she can.

“For example, if

someone is interested in getting

into hairdressing, I can advise and

encourage them,” she says. “I also like

to help people improve their wellbeing.”

Paula is currently seeking an

experienced hairdresser to rent a chair

at Aroha Salon, so she can expand the

services.

Aroha Salon is located at 162a Kendal

Avenue, Burnside. Opening hours are

Tuesday to Friday 9am to 5pm with a late

night on Thursday, and Saturday 10am-

1pm. To book an appointment, phone

357 0002.

Hanging outside the salon door, these

paua scissors draw attention.

Auction: Thursday 2 April, on site at 5.30pm (unless sold prior)

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 living, 2 gar garaging

Listing no. OPA24989

Embracing space and an exceptional outlook

from the Mt Pleasant hillside, this property

embodies casual elegance and has been

designed to deliver a relaxed, modern lifestyle.

High-end materials ensure this home is

aesthetically appealing yet easy-care, and

it boasts the latest specifications paired

with post-quake construction to assure

peace of mind.

Situated upon an established 1141sqm

approx section that is superbly positioned

for sunshine, this property maximises

its elevated vantage point encompassing

everything from Pegasus Bay and the

Kaikouras beyond to the Southern Alps.

Effortless drive-on access and meticulous

landscaping invite you home where modern

detailing and seamless outdoor transitions

play a prominent role.

The dual living areas open right through

for spacious living or close off for peace and

privacy and will be greatly appreciated by

households that crave space. The kitchen

showcases fine finishes, huge bench spaces

and storage and even includes a hot water tap

for instant satisfaction. Alfresco living options

are many and varied, with the decking and

upper-level balcony providing spectacular

vistas and superb backdrops for entertaining.

Well-proportioned for growing families

or professional couples, the floor plan

incorporates three bedrooms with excellent

storage and two tiled bathrooms, with the

master having both a walk-in robe and

ensuite and a lovely private deck area.

Equipped with all the necessary

conveniences for contemporary living,

the home features ducted heating, a gas

fire, alarm system, sizeable laundry and

abundant storage including a large internal

access garage and OSP.

The property has the added attraction of

being in-zone and walking distance for Mt

Pleasant School, undoubtedly a drawcard

for families while proximity to the shoreline

and multitude of amenities in Ferrymead is

another plus.

This is an undeniably desirable property in

every respect

RAY WHITE PAPANUI NEWS

When is a good time to buy an investment property?

Interest rates are at an all time low

which in my opinion means that there

is no better time than right now

to purchase your first investment

property, or add to your existing

portfolio.

Coupled with the low interest rates,

we are also noticing that there are

quite a few investors cashing up, which

means there are more fantastic rentals

coming to the market, and quite a few

with really great sitting tenants.

While there is no doubt that recent

legislation requirements for rental

properties has increased the cost

for landlords, with upgrading of

insulation, heating, ventilation etc,

it can be argued however that these

things actually improve the value of

your property in the long run, so it is in

actual fact well spent money.

Although we are yet to see any

significant rise in rents in Canterbury

we are noticing small increases to

help cover the extra costs landlords

are incurring through upgrades and

increases in other costs like rates and

insurance. I guess you could say that

rental properties have their own kind

of inflation – when costs increase to

landlords, to ensure they remain a

viable investment, costs of rents must

also rise.

There are of course many ways you can

invest in your future, term deposits,

shares and a multitude of other options

are now easily accessible, however

with interest rates as low as they are, I

believe that owning rental property has

never looked better.

My opinion is obviously somewhat

biased, however this is echoed by many

other successful property investors

throughout the world. “The wise

man or wage earner of today invests

his money in real estate”, Andrew

Carnegie.

How to Keep Things Under Control When

Buying Property

“The happiest people don’t have

the best of everything, they make

the best of everything”

Having been in real estate my

entire working life I have met

people with a little money, a lot

of money, a big deposit, a begged

and borrowed deposit, inherited

funds, worked two jobs funds,

worked overseas funds, worked

their way up the ladder funds,

missed out on family time funds, still

driving the same car funds, invested

wisely funds, pooled with friends

funds and helped out by mum and

dad funds.

One thing I can tell you, regardless

of how you pulled your purchasing

money together and no matter

how much you have to spend you’ll

naturally be yearning for the houses

just out of your budget. If only you

had $400,000 to spend instead

of $380,000…$550,000 to spend

instead of $500,000, $1.2 instead of

$1M and so on. I offer the following

piece of advice to those of you

looking to buy property and that is

whatever you are pre-approved to

spend shop considerably UNDER

it! For example if you are preapproved

to $400,000 instead

look at houses in the mid $3’s

range, if you are pre-approved for

$900,000 shop from $750,000 up.

Feature Property

This way you can confidently shop

for property within your budget

rather than hoping by some miracle

a $430,000 house will be sold to

you for $399,000, or a $970,000

home for $900,000. Further you

will be able to comfortably afford

the mortgage and you can always

add value and improvements to

a lesser value property in future.

Sometimes a little out of the box

thinking when it comes to real

estate can go a long way and in this

case using the above advice could

save you from too many frustrations

and disappointments when looking

to purchase your next property.

Ronald McDonald House

Help us support this amazing charity this

March!

The Ray White Papanui team has been

challenged....Challenged by Ronald

McDonald House to walk, run, bike or swim

at least 210KM this March! Why 210KM

you may ask? Because every month New

Zealand families travel an average of at least

210KM for their child to receive hospital

treatment away from home.

A few things you might not know about

Ronald McDonald House

• They give families with a hospitalised

child what they need most – each other

• Every year they offer over 4,300 families

across New Zealand accommodation

and support free of charge. This helps to

relieve stresses like paying for a place to

sleep near the hospital, organising family

meals and needing a friendly ear to listen

on tough days

• Our local RMH is in Cashel Street and

they have been here for 17 years

• Any family whose child is traveling here
