mounts for

council to

put brakes

on rates

increase

• By Devon Bolger

A PROPOSAL to put the brakes

on a rates increase for this year

will take its next step with public

hearings of the Annual Plan

starting this week.

The district council consulted

on the options for the rates levels

in the next financial year as part

of the plan.

The feedback received will help

to form its decision on the level of

the rates for the 2020/21 financial

year starting on July 1.

The other options being considered

are proceeding with the

proposed 3.5 per cent average

increase and seeking to reduce the

planned increase by identifying

savings.

A total of 233 submissions were

received on the draft Annual Plan

2020/21.

Of these, 60 submitters have

asked to be heard in person at the

public hearings which are running

on Tuesday and Wednesday

this week at the district council

chambers in Rolleston.

they can find.

On page 9 today, police

Farmers sheds and

Chainsaws, tools and petrol

Harker is advising people

who own rural properties to

install security cameras, and

that’s good advice.

It not only helps the police

Burnham tyre plant plan goes flat

• By Devon Bolger

A LARGE-SCALE plant

designed to break down end-oflife

tyres is no longer proceeding

at Burnham.

The district council approved

leasing land at the Pines

Resource Recovery Park, in

Burnham, to allow Eneform Ltd

to construct a

tyre pyrolysis

plant in 2018.

Pyrolysis is

the thermochemical

decomposition

of

Andrew

Simcock

organic material

at elevated

temperatures

SHIFT: A plant that would break down end-of-life tyres to

convert them into oil and gas will no longer be proceeding at

the Pines Resource Recovery Park. ​

which is then converted into

energy-rich oil and gas.

Eneform Ltd chief executive

Andrew Simcock said they will

no longer be going in at the

recovery park.

“We had plans to build the facility

in Christchurch but recent

developments mean it still could

potentially go in somewhere else

in the district,” he said.

District council solid waste

manager Andrew Boyd said he

has recently been in discussions

with a new company, H2 Solutions

Ltd, about its containerised

French pyrolysis technology.

“The appeal of H2 is that it is

European technology, which has

strict environmental standards,

and has been commercialised

for approximately 15 years, with

plants operating in Western

countries as opposed to prototype

machines,” she said.

H2 Solutions Ltd is interested

in leasing the area of the Pines

Resource Recovery Park originally

set aside for the Eneform

Ltd lease.

Mr Boyd said conversations

are centering around processing

farm plastics, local dairy industry

plastic and potentially other

soft plastics from commercial

sources.

H2 Solutions Ltd’s system

would be able to separately

process materials such as

plastics, paper, cardboard,

wood, biosolids, and tyres.

The type of outputs of the

system can be varied according

to demand including gas, oil and

hydrogen.

Mr Boyd said: “With the

ongoing international recycling

situation continuing to look

very fragile, onshore processing

options such as H2 could form

part of the solution.

“This is all at its very early

stages and the council is meeting,

as it does from time to time

with businesses, to learn about

their services. There is no firm

commitment attached,” he said.

Currently, tyres are landfilled,

exported as waste, stockpiled

or used as silage cover in the

agriculture industry.

About a fortnight ago a fire at

the Diggalink yard on Weedons

Rd spread to a large pile of tyres

which was near State Highway 1

in Rolleston.

•A six-week delay is expected

on the first stage of the project

to upgrade the Pines Resource

Recovery Park due to Covid-19.

The first stage includes

relocating and expanding the

recycling and reusables drop-off

area, with a canopy, parking

and operational area. Further

stages of the project will be

built form 2021-2024 and will

include a reuse shop, salvage

materials yard, education centre,

microenterprise units and a

multi-purpose waste hub.

In Brief

EV CHARGERS PLANNED

Electric vehicle chargers are

set to be installed across the

district. The first sites are

planned at Arthur’s Pass, Castle

Hill, Springfield, Dunsandel,

and Leeston. A district council

spokesman said proposed

locations have been identified but

these are subject to consultation

first with relevant township and

community committees. The

spokesman said the chargers are

expected to be installed by the

end of the year if not earlier.

2000 LIGHTS REPLACED

Work on replacing older street

lights with more efficient LEDs

is progressing well with nearly

2000 lights replaced so far. The

Ellesmere and Malvern zones

have been completed apart

from a few errant lights that are

being addressed. The Selwyn

central zone is the next area to

be finished. The district council

is spending about $3.3 million

on the project to replace 5800

streetlights across the district.

COMEDY EVENT RETURNS

The annual Live in Lincoln

Siana Fitzjohn

Activist takes up the fight against coal

Siana Fitzjohn is a fighter

for the environment. She

talks to Devon Bolger

about her work with

Extinction Rebellion and

mounting opposition to

a coal mine expansion in

the district

How did you get started with

Extinction Rebellion?

I had just come back from a

trip to see my family in England.

I had finished up my masters

in science communication in

Dunedin and went overseas for

a while to recover. I had sort

of put climate activism on the

backburner for a good year or so

but when I came back and saw

how much energy was rising up

in Christchurch around climate

issues I wanted to be involved.

Extinction Rebellion just seemed

to inspire a lot of people and get

a lot of people involved, so I saw

it as a way to jump back into

climate activism without the

responsibility of taking on an

entire group myself.

What is Extinction Rebellion?

It is a group that supports and

encourages citizens uprising in

New Zealand that involves low

level and higher risk acts of civil

PASSION: Siana Fitzjohn with her kunekune Splodge and sheep Little Hope. The climate activist

also has a love for animals.

disobedience. It is about trying

to change the trajectory we are

on as humans at the moment.

Tell me about your role as a

spokesperson there.

We did a blockade of a coal

train last year in Christchurch

and launched a bit of a

rebellion against coal. I was

the spokesperson at that action

and with the stuff around the

Bathurst coal mine in Selwyn.

I have been particularly

passionate about resisting coal

mining in New Zealand since I

went over to the West Coast and

visited a couple of the mines

over there. We saw one called

Happy Valley. It was sad to see

a really beautiful valley turned

into a massive mine. It sort of

unites my passion for protecting

New Zealand’s unique ecology,

and my climate activism,

because coal damages both the

ecosystem where it gets mined

and the climate when it gets

burnt.

Could you tell me about your

concerns with the proposed

expansion of Bathurst’s

Canterbury coal mine?

Extinction Rebellion started

because we recognised that there

was a very real threat to humans’

well-being on the planet and

extinction is imminent for quite

a few species including ours if

we continue on the trajectory

that we are on. Resisting the

Canterbury coal mine first

and foremost came because we

are in the middle of a climate

emergency and coal is the most

potent contributor to climate

change. The mine does damage

to an ecosystem that’s already

really degraded. Canterbury

rivers are known globally as

being incredibly polluted and the

mine will further pollute that

catchment that people are trying

really hard to restore.

mining to help protect the environment

Where did your passion for

the environment start?

My parents instilled a real firm

respect for non-human beings

in me. I grew up in various

countries such as Singapore

and Abu Dhabi before I moved

to New Zealand in 2001. I

remember seeing instances of

environmental destruction from

a young age you know like a

tree I loved being cut down or a

forest at the end of the road and

I remember being very deeply

affected by those instances and

felt very powerless. It grew from

there with me doing a lot of

volunteering and working in the

climate movement. It has been

about 10 years that I have been

doing that. Since I was about 19.

What would you say has kept

you going all this time?

Having really good friends

who are also activists. It can be

gruelling and tiring. I would

definitely say the people.

Have there been any scary

moments during your climate

activism?

One would have been about

a year ago in Dunedin when a

whole bunch of different groups

were trying to shut down the

minerals forum, that’s the

coal and minerals conference

they were having where all

the delegates get together and

ACTIVISM: Siana Fitzjohn at the Extinction Rebellion week

of action protests in Wellington.

plan expansions of the various

industry facilities. We had quite a

nasty situation where a few of us,

mainly women, were blocking a

doorway and we had police bust

out from the inside and bust in

from the outside and we were

caught in this real crushed crowd

situation and the crowd kind of

collapsed. Someone really badly

injured their knee so that was

quite scary.

Have there been any exciting

or particularly satisfying

moments?

There have been heaps, one of

them is probably getting on the

oil rig off the coast of the South

Island to protest against fossil

fuel extraction. We spent 10 years

campaigning against deep-sea oil

and finally we could go out and

meet them at sea out on the rig.

It was quite a big moment for me

and a pretty exciting chase on the

high seas.

Have you had any brushes

with the law because of your

activism?

I have had a few arrests and a

couple of trespass charges. Most

of the time I have found the

judges we have come in front of

have been quite understanding.

One example is when we boarded

the Skandi Atlantic last year in

Timaru. We had about 27-odd

people board a boat that was a

support vessel for an oil rig. We

were there for two days and most

of us got arrested for that. We

are actually waiting to see what

the court proceedings will be for

that.

How long have you lived near

Darfield?

We have been here going on

about 18 years. I lived here for a

while and then lived in Dunedin

and now I am back.

What do you like about living

in Selwyn?

I love the Selwyn River, it is

a really special place to me. I

really love that you can drive for

45min and you are in the middle

of the mountains and if you drive

for 50min in the other direction

you are at the ocean. There is

such a varied landscape available

and I keep discovering new bits

that I have not spent much time

in.

Could you tell me a bit about

your family?

There is just the four of us

here; my mother April, father

Dave and my younger sister

Jessie. My mum is a teacher,

my dad is the chairman of the

Lincoln Envirotown Trust and

Jessie is in the middle of her

PhD in mechanical engineering.

We all went in quite different

directions. We are pretty close

just being the four of us and I’m

really lucky to have a family who

is so supportive of my climate

activism because not everybody

supports it.

Do you have any pets?

Yes, I am a real animal

person. I have my pig Splodge,

she is a kunekune and was my

14th-birthday present so she is

still going strong. She is about

15-years-old. I have a sheep

called Little Hope who I rescued

during one of my walks. She was

really skinny and starving, her

mother had abandoned her so I

took her home and now she lives

out in the paddock. We have a

dog called Mercy who is a brindle

staffy cross, two cats, a rooster

called King Henry VIII and three

remaining hens.

If you could take one item

with you to a desert island what

would it be?

I was going to say something

practical like a water condenser

but that is no fun. I would take

a set of juggling balls. I can

juggle but I have only got just

the basic pattern down. It would

be good, they would keep you

busy.

THE REVIEW of the

District Plan has been

pushed out until later

this year because of

Covid-19.

The plan was expected

to be publicly notified in

April but that will now not

be happening.

In a report the district

council said: “We are still

working through the implications

of the Covid-19

pandemic to determine

how long this delay may

be but we hope to be able

to notify the Plan later this

year.

“We will update the

public as soon as we have

more information,’’ it

said.

spokesman said it is unclear

at this stage whether

the delay will have an

Kirkwood Intermediate

School of Choice

Celebrating Kirkwood House

Captains for 2020

Year 7 Camp

Our Year 7 pupils have

recently attended a camp at

Purau Bay. This is a great

way for the children to get to

know each other.

House Captains for Mansfield/Hillary

Jamison - Ex Hoon Hay Primary

I like Kirkwood Intermediate because I like meeting people from different

cultures and I enjoy the opportunities Kirkwood offers like electronics in

Technology.

Aimee - Ex Clearview Primary

Kirkwood provides many different sports opportunities and I like the school

because I get to meet new people. This year I would like to become involved in

the many sports opportunities and leadership rolls which Kirkwood offers. This

would be a great achievement.

House Captains for Sheppard/Freyberg

Ragavi - Ex Lincoln Primary I like Kirkwood because of the traditional style

of learning with kind and friendly staff, teachers and students. You get many

opportunities to try new things (such as: sports; science fair; music; and

technology). A school that recognises not only the curricular activities that

students have achieved but also extra achievements of students outside the

school (Blues awards). I wanted to be a House Captain so I could apply my

skill of leadership and also gain strengths as a Year 8 pupil. At the same time

I wanted to gain new challenges and get the opportunity to engage in a new

working environment. This year I would like to keep my focus on contributing to

extra-curricular and curricular activities.

William - Ex Halswell School At Kirkwood I like how there are many opportunities

for pupils to get involved in as well as the various activities offered which we have

never tried before. I would like to fundraise for a charity like the Cancer Society. I

wanted to gain experience in a leadership role representing a group, and to be able to

bring ideas around and help people when they need support.

My

favourite part of

camp was playing games

with everyone and just hanging

out with my friends. I enjoyed

going to the beach and swimming.

Some of the other camp activities

which I enjoyed were: abseiling;

pitching tents; Canadian canoeing;

playing sports; bush walking;

periwinkle hunting and

beach time.

My

favourite part

of camp was abseiling

because all the adrenaline

went rushing through my veins.

I have never been abseiling

before and it was really

challenging for me. I also liked

feeding the eels which

slithered around my

legs.

I enjoyed playing

in the reserve in the

evenings. The games we

played were “Predator” and “Kick

the Container”.

We had the most amazing parent

helpers which we really enjoyed.

We also learnt to cooperate with

each other and it gave us an

opportunity to get to know

our class mates better.

House Captains for Britten/Te Kanawa

Anton - Ex Lincoln Primary School I like the opportunities Kirkwood has to

offer including the academic and sporting options you can take part in. I would

like to lead Britten/Te Kanawa house to success. I would also encourage all

students to make the most of their time here at Kirkwood.

Rosa - Ex Halswell Primary I enjoy Kirkwood due to the happy and friendly

environment that I get to be in. This year I would like to gain more Blues

awards, create a clean and tidy environment and have a fun Year 8. I really

wanted this leadership opportunity because I love supporting and helping

people who need it.

House Captains for Rutherford/Batten

Rylee - Ex Spreydon School Kirkwood gives me so many opportunities like

sports, singing and experience in leadership. I like the teachers and the time in

Technology. This year I would like to get into a softball and netball team. I have

always wanted to be a House Captain and will make a good role model.

Zavier - Ex Wigram Primary School I like Kirkwood because there are so

many different opportunities here and we are lucky enough to go to Technology

so that we can learn things to help us in the future. By the end of the year I

want my house to be the best house of all the houses and win everything. I

wanted to be a House Captain because I am very competitive and will do my

best to help my House thrive to be the best at the end of the year.

Open Day/Night

Instead of our traditional Open Day/Night this year we are hosting

small groups by appointment. Please contact the school by phone

on 3487718 or email school.information@kirkwood.school.nz

to arrange a time. We look forward to seeing you!

Call or email us to organise your tour of our school in place of Open Day/Night.

Useful tips to

prevent rural crime

Area response

manager Senior

Sergeant Dean

Harker writes

about police

activity in the

district

THIS MONTH I am

focusing on rural crime

prevention because police

are starting to get an

increase in calls for service

around rural burglaries.

Over the last couple

of weeks we have had

a number of farmers’

sheds and outbuildings

being targeted by thieves,

offenders have been

stealing chainsaw, tools

and petrol and diesel. Fuel

is being siphoned out of

tractors and other farm

machinery.

This is a good time for

farmers to check their

security, there are some

really good security

cameras and alarms on

the market at present

designed for rural settings.

Remember to keep note of

serial numbers of electrical

items and quad bikes etc.

Crime prevention

in rural areas is most

effective when it involves

a partnership between

rural people, police, local

authorities and local

organisations.

In Selwyn, we are very

lucky to have a very strong

community patrol set up,

they are always on the

lookout for more people to

become involved in their

patrol groups.

We have a group in both

the Malvern and Lincoln

areas, contact your local

police if you’re keen to

become involved.

Some points to

remember are:

Police can and will

respond to rural crime.

Keep in mind police

may need to travel long

distances to get to you.

Phone 111 when you

need immediate help with

a life-threatening or timecritical

emergency.

Some emergencies

will need more than one

service (fire, ambulance

and police).

Ask for the service which

is needed most urgently.

All emergency services

have links to each other

and the first service

called will notify the

other services if they are

required.

For non-urgent

situations, phone 105 or

Dean Harker

Selwyn Police

visit your local police

station.

If there’s no immediate

danger or the incident

happened a while ago

then it’s probably not

an emergency. If you

can’t decide if it’s a real

emergency and you’re still

worried, phone 111 and ask

us. We’ll help you work out

what to do.

Clearly tag animals and

keep accurate stock and

produce records. Lock all

rural buildings, houses and

sheds etc.

You should have a

detailed inventory of all

personal valuables and

household and business

equipment, including

model and serial numbers,

inscription, and other

identifying features.

Report all instances of

crime – even when a police

response is not necessary.

Police need to know

the pattern of crime in

an area. You can help

police by reporting all

instances of suspicious

behaviour or crime. It

helps police to know who

is in the community or

if there is a pattern of

crime developing in an

area that needs further

investigation. It also helps

us to decide if the rest of

the community should be

alerted too.

Be organised. Discuss

and prepare.

Rural Selwyn has a

reputation for tight-knit

supportive communities.

You can help to keep

safe by knowing your

neighbours, exchanging

phone numbers and

keeping those numbers

handy.

Discuss what you could

do to alert or assist each

other in an emergency.

It’s also a good idea to let

neighbours know if you’re

going on holiday or leaving

your home overnight.

Reduce the risk of

becoming a victim

of crime by taking

precautions.

If you live on a farm

and are leaving the house

to investigate something

untoward, ensure someone

knows where you’re going,

as much as possible about

what you’re checking, and

how long you expect it to

take.

This could involve

phoning the police or your

neighbour, waiting for a

neighbour to join you, and

taking a mobile phone or

handheld radio with you.

Reduce risk by taking

notice of who is out and

about and talking to them

(particularly if they aren’t

locals), locking your house,

removing keys, closing

access gates (particularly to

your driveway/house). And

keeping an eye on each

other’s property.

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in

entomology (insects and other invertebrates).

Each week he introduces a new species found

in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims

Native cockroaches

not a household pest

COCKROACHES are one insect

group that most people detest.

Their flattened, oval shape, spiny

legs and scuttling nature is quite

distinctive.

The main exotic species which

are pests in New Zealand houses

are the American cockroach

Periplaneta americana, the

German cockroach Blatella

germanica, and the Australiannative

Gisborne cockroach

Drymaplaneta semivitta.

Many of the native cockroach

species in New Zealand do not

pose any health risks.

At least 20 species of native

cockroaches are known in New

Zealand, most of which are in

the genus Celatoblatta.

These natives are not

household pests, but rather are

found in damp, dark habitats

under wood or leaf litter.

They are

omnivorous,

feeding on organic

material which

can include dead

wood, which is

digested with the

help of symbiotic

gut flora.

Female

cockroaches carry

eggs in a cluster

called ootheca

at the rear and

deposit them

under cover to

develop.

Ransley gets ace ring-in

for eSport Cup finale

• By Jacob Page

PREBBLETON’S Jaden Ransley

will have a V8 Supercars driver

on his side as he pursues the

eSports Cup virtual motorsport

title tomorrow night.

The 18-year-old sits second in

the points standings heading into

the two-hour endurance race finale

at the famed Bathurst track.

With each competitor needing

a co-driver, Ransley has called in

Kiwi V8 Supercars driver Andre

Heimgartner to help him in his

championship push.

Ransley was able to maintain

his spot in the standings in round

nine thanks to two fourth place

finishes in each race at Imola,

Italy.

“We probably didn’t have the

speed to win both races but we

stayed clean and got good points.

“I was really happy with how

everything turned out.”

Haber has a 30-point advantage

points on offer that will ultimately

determine the champion.

Using iRacing software, two

drivers will share one car, regardless

if they are sharing the same

simulator.

Ransley said Heimgartner’s experience

would prove invaluable.

“This is a case of Kiwis helping

out Kiwis and I know I’ll lean

on Andre’s experience when it

comes to tactics and pit-stops.’’

Ransley said he was confident

in his ability at a familiar track

to overhaul Haber of things went

Affiliation fees

to be waived

• By Jacob Page

ALL AFFILIATION fees for

rugby clubs and schools in

Canterbury, including Ellesmere

will be waived for the 2020

season.

The move, which was approved

by the Canterbury

Rugby Football Union Board

and endorsed by the sub-unions

will help clubs support their

members by minimising barriers

when participants return to play.

The announcement has been

welcomed by the Ellesmere

Rugby Sub-Union.

“Through discussions with

clubs in Ellesmere, we are aware

some face an uncertain future,”

Ellesmere rugby manager, Michael

Sheat said.

“Access to grants and other

funding has become restricted

and a number of clubs face

player uncertainty due to personal

circumstance.

“Rugby is an important part

of rural communities. We want

rugby to be accessible and

endorse the decision the CRFU

Board has made,”

CRFU chief executive Tony

Smail said he was eager for the

season to begin later this month.

We look forward to seeing

playing fields 60 across the

%

Canterbury region full of action,

noise and camaraderie as the

season gets under way in late

June.”

enough for Selwyn’s Dan Ede

• By Jacob Page

SELWYN UNITED’S veteran

attacker Dan Ede has found a

silver lining to an unexpected

three-month break.

The 30-year-old said the time

off due to Covid-19 allowed him

to heal some niggling injuries,

so he was ready to get back to

football.

“The aging body certainly

enjoyed the break.

“I picked up a little knee injury

late last year while playing for

Canterbury so it’s been nice to

rest that.

“Knees and ankles need a rest

at times and sometimes that’s not

possible.

“I’m not always the most

enthusiastic trainer so doing it by

myself during the lockdown was

tough.

“There might be some rust

there but I think we are all keen

to get on with it.”

Round three of the Mainland

Premier League is scheduled for

Saturday and while the full draw

is not yet known, Ede said he

had heard all 21 rounds would be

played.

“From what I’m hearing a

full season is likely going into

late September so that’s a good

thing, plus there’s talk about the

English Cup knockout competition

too.

“If we have to play a few night

games midweek then that’s fine

because I’m pretty sure we have a

good record in those.”

Ede, who is in his seventh

season with the Stallions, said he

is just as motivated as ever.

“My speed has always been a

big attribute for me and at 30 it

still works for me. But that won’t

be the case forever.”

Ede said he wanted to make

sure Selwyn continued to earn

respect at the MPL level.

to achieve.

“I know it’s known around the

league that we are prone to leaking

a goal or two but that’s not

my area of expertise,” he said.

“I’ll keep trying to bang the

goals in, and we’ll look to improve

our defence as a team.”

KidsFest back to bring

holiday cheer

KidsFest is back again to bring some fun for the holidays after a tough start to the year.

The Council will be running a busy programme for the popular annual KidsFest event, from

Saturday 4 to Sunday 19 July.

KidsFest has been running for 25 years and it was a good feeling to be able to return again and

continue to offer a high quality range of events, Council Senior Events and Recreation Advisor

Dave Tippett says.

“We’re delighted that we’re able to put on a host of great events with old favourites and some

cool new additions to the fortnight. There will be some changes because of the impacts of the

pandemic, with ongoing restrictions, and health and safety requirements. But it’s great to be

able to offer children some fun, with a return to familiar events, and to take some of the load off

parents after the incredible job they have been doing this year.”

This year’s festival will feature over 30 events including the return of favourites such as high ropes,

hip hop and Sport Suzie’s Super Silly Circus Show, and exciting new options such as light pad art,

lanterns and dinosaur parties.

The Children’s Market may not be able to go ahead because of pandemic restrictions, but

MovieMania and Discomania are able to return, Mr Tippet says.

Children and families will also have the opportunity to get a whole new view of the district through

the Eye Spy Selwyn activity hunt. The hunt will once again take children to explore the district, but

this year children will have the chance to win a family hot air balloon ride for four with Ballooning

Canterbury, if they answer a question and collect a stamp at each Council facility. Completed

cards of stamps that are returned to the customer centre at the Council‘s Rolleston offices will go

into the draw.

Tickets and a full timetable of events will be available from Friday 5 June at selwyn.govt.nz/kidsfest.

Selwyn families can also attend events in Christchurch and Waimakariri.

Draft Annual Plan hearings this week

Public hearings on the Council’s Draft Annual Plan for 2020/21 are being held this week.

Two days of hearings are scheduled at the Council Chambers in Rolleston on Tuesday 2 and

Wednesday 3 June.

A total of 233 formal submissions were received on the Draft Annual Plan. Of these, 60 submitters have

asked to be heard in person.

The hearings start at 9.30am each day, and are open to the public. A livestream of the hearings can be

viewed atselwyn.govt.nz/livestream.

The Council also received 110 responses to an online survey conducted through the Council’s online

engagement site.

The Council sought public feedback on six major issues, including options for reducing the level of rates

increase, changes to water supply charges, planning for a wastewater scheme at Darfield, changes

to the timing of two community centre projects, and amendments to the Council’s Development

Contributions Policy. Submitters have also provided comments and feedback on a wide range of other

Council projects and activities.

ON THE

ROADS

On the roads

Tennyson Street is closed from 43 Tennyson Street to Markham Way due to the

Rolleston Town Centre infrastructure upgrade. Due to the Lowes Road and Tennyson

Street intersection upgrade, Lowes Road is one way on both sides of the intersection,

with lanes open for traffic heading away from the intersection, but not towards it. A

stop/go system and speed restrictions are also in place on Tennyson Street.

NZTA has advised that the Christchurch Southern Motorway on ramps, and one

lane of traffic heading towards the city, are now open at Halswell Junction Road and Shands Road.

Access to the motorway citybound via John Paterson Drive roundabout is now closed permanently.

Please follow all on-site directions and traffic management.

Tennyson Street partial reopening

Tennyson Street has reopened from Rolleston Drive to Markham

Way as the Rolleston Town Centre infrastructure work moves to a

new phase.

The road was closed for the length of Rolleston Reserve to allow

the infrastructure project to finish more quickly. Despite the halt to

work under Alert Level 4 lockdown, and changes to how work can

happen on site with social distancing restrictions, major upgrades

have been completed between Markham Way and Rolleston Drive.

New wider pedestrian walkways and trees have been completed

along with underground infrastructure for the town centre.

The remainder of Tennyson Street from Markham Way to 48

Tennyson Street will stay closed until the work is finished at the end

of July depending on the weather.

The reopened section of Tennyson Street will allow car access to

the Markham Junction shops, increasing opportunities to visit these

great Selwyn businesses, local to you.

In line with NZTA-recommended safe speed zones for urban

centres a 30 km/h speed limit is in place for the reopened section of

Tennyson Street.

The Markham Way extension to Norman Kirk Drive will remain in

place until the work is completed.

The detour using Byron Street, Brookside Road and Rolleston

Drive will remain in place for the closed section of Tennyson Street

and the 820 bus stops will remain at their temporary location on

Rolleston Drive.

A 26-year journey home

Continuing our series celebrating the Faces of Selwyn.

Visit selwyn.govt.nz/facesofselwyn for the full story.

Teena Dela Cruz and her family of three have spent more than a

quarter of a century becoming New Zealand citizens.

Originally from the Philippines, Teena met husband Orlando over 30

years ago while nannying in Singapore. A few years later in Hong

Kong she met the McMaths from Christchurch, who hired Teena to

look after their four young children.

The families clicked and the McMaths offered to bring Teena to New

Zealand, in the hope she’d continue to be their nanny.

In the end it took five attempts over 14 years from Teena then

Orlando, before Orlando gained a work visa and moved to Leeston

to work on the McMaths dairy farm in 2009. Two years later Teena

and their son Adiell-Jonan (A.J.) were able to join him.

“It’s still difficult to come into New Zealand; immigration is tough.

And the requirements as well. If you do not pass the medical tests

or qualification standards, you can’t even come here,” Teena says.

The start to their dream move was rocky. Eight months after arriving,

Orlando’s mother died and he was unable to fly home to farewell

her. Teena struggled getting used to the idea her surroundings

would no longer be hot or humid, but quiet with the absence of

people and family members she had left behind.

“In the Philippines, your neighbour is on the other side of the wall.

Here, your neighbour is an hour’s walk away at least.”

That led her to start a support

group for Filipino immigrants

around Leeston. The group,

now called Leeston Lifetouch

Fellowship, grew from seven

members in 2011, to 60 today.

They meet every three weeks at St

David’s Church in Leeston where

discussions can last for hours.

“Somebody would be having

problems, and then we laugh, we

cry, we listen, we eat.”

After eight years Teena and her

family finally became permanent

residents last year, in the place

they have made their home.

Selwyn Open – A passion for raw milk

As part of our Selwyn Open campaign we’re profiling some of the many excellent businesses local to

you. You can find these businesses on the Selwyn Business Directory at selwyn.govt.nz/directory

This week we talk to Mark Williams from Aylesbury Creamery.

After a week working on a dairy farm Mark Williams swore he would never be a dairy farmer. The work

experience came as he was studying at the Telford Farm Training Institute.

To his surprise he ended up running his own dairy farm in Aylesbury, along with wife Kelsey and their

children, Reeve and Addison.

Eight years later, Mark has found a real passion for the family business, Aylesbury Creamery, delivering

A2 farm fresh raw milk to customer’s doorsteps and selling it from a vending machine on their farm, a

10 minute drive from Rolleston.

It’s a busy life being a dairy farmer, working a minimum of 12 hours every day of the year including

Christmas, Mark says, but the hard work pays off when he sees customers benefitting from Aylesbury

Creamery’s products.

Fifty of the farm’s 350 cows are milked for their A2 protein to produce farm fresh raw milk, which is full

of good bacteria usually killed off during pasteurisation.

Many of Mark’s customers report seeing health benefits from the milk, he says.

“When you’re helping people with their health, it makes you feel good about what you do.”

The Williams’ business is focused on being as sustainable as possible, limiting the amount of spray

used and selling their raw milk in reusable glass bottles instead of plastic, saving over 240,000 one-litre

plastic bottles.

During lockdown, Mark and the team did many contactless deliveries throughout Selwyn and

Christchurch. He also delivered eggs for a local farmer who lost work due to the closure of restaurants

and cafés, saving customers a trip to the supermarket for milk and eggs.

The family enjoys working in Selwyn, because it is not too far from Christchurch and there are some

amazing sunsets out in Aylesbury, he says.

He is grateful for the support Aylesbury Creamery gets from locals in the district and believes

supporting local is what keeps a community ticking.

Stay safe on the roads this winter

Winter is back, with a new set of challenges for driving, so we’re encouraging drivers to be alert, slow

down and stay safe.

As the weather changes through winter, driving challenges can change quickly with fog, ice, snow,

rain, shorter daylight hours and sunstrike. The district also has many shaded areas where large trees or

hedges prevent roads from thawing during cooler winter days.

Staying alert and taking extra care is essential, but winter driving does not have to be dangerous or

intimidating. Preparing your vehicle and adjusting your driving for the conditions goes a long way

towards ensuring your safety and that of others.

To help you start off safe we’ve created a simple four step checklist for when you start and one for

when you’re driving.

Before you start your car make sure your wiper blades, headlights and tyres are working in good

condition and your windscreen is clear inside and out.

And when you’re driving – make sure you can see clearly through your windows in all directions, watch

out for shaded areas on the road, keep your distance from the car in front and if the weather is bad put

your lights on.

More tips to stay safe

Plan ahead – check the weather forecast and avoid travel if you can when conditions are poor. Slow

down, increase following distances and be careful around corners and in shady places.

Driving in the wet

Stopping distances nearly double on wet roads. Slow down and keep a generous following distance

between you and the car in front, take corners slowly and heed road signs warning of flooding.

Driving in the snow and ice

Whenever possible, avoid driving in heavy snow. If you cannot avoid it, slow down, avoid braking

suddenly and carry chains.

Driving in fog

Turn on your headlights and keep them on low (dip) beam. Only use fog lamps when visibility is

severely reduced. Slow down and keep a generous following distance.

Driving with sun strike

Keeping your windscreen clean, inside and out can make the difference between seeing someone

and not.

Notices

FLUSH YOUR TAPS

Some plumbing fittings have the potential to allow minute traces

of metals to accumulate in water standing in the fittings for several

hours. Although the health risk is small the Ministry of Health

recommends that you flush a mugful of water from your drinkingwater

tap each morning before use to remove any metals that may

have dissolved from the plumbing fittings. We are recommending

this simple precaution for all households, including those on public

and private water supplies. This notice is issued by Selwyn District

Council on behalf of the Director-General of Health, Ministry of Health.

Autumn sunshine captured in a glass

• By Mark Henderson

I WAS TALKING to a friend

recently, who said that the trees

had dropped their leaves and,

with their bare branches reaching

for the sky, that there was a

feeling of the plant world having

shut up shop for winter.

Personally, I’m a fan of Indian

summers, with milder weather

continuing into May, eking the

last vestiges of warmth out of

ever-shortening days before the

inevitable onset of winter.

Perhaps a rose, exuding summer

sun in a glass, might fit the

bill?

‘The Anatomy of

Melancholy

Part III: Lost & Found’

Simon van der Sluijs is an artist of Dutch descent and traditional painting

and drawing training. His themes are deeply personal, unconventional, dark,

humorous and disturbing. Three years ago Simon van der Sluijs began his trilogy

exhibition series ‘The Anatomy of Melancholy’.

Part I – Identity 2018, Part II – Dissectum 2019 and finally Part III – Lost & Found

June 2020.

Large charcoal drawings challenge with their strong emotional content yet have

a stillness which stops the viewer in their tracks. ‘Journal of Loss’ - 40 small

monochromatic watercolours is a project in itself and acts as a diary of Simon’s

thought process.

Drawings and watercolours show the emotional side of ‘losing and finding’; the

loss of innocence or youth, the loss of those we love and the process of coping.

Mixed media dogs varying in size from the very large to the very small. We are

not sure if they are lost or found. Each dog has its own narrative, but together

they remind us of unconditional love, and that they too can understand loss.

Simon is a multi-disciplinary artist. His work is often metaphorical and he

continues to look inward and reach into his past to find an existential language

we can all find ourselves in.

Evocative Evoque – true Range Rover

I’M VERY impressed with the

forward progress of Land-Rover

and Range Rover.

When Indian company Tata

Motors acquired the brands in

2008 I was concerned that research

and development and the

ongoing release of new models

may have been compromised.

That’s far from the case, it’s

business as usual in the United

Kingdom factories, the product is

high on quality and as you would

expect from the brands, luxurious,

yet rugged where need be.

One of the badges in the Range

Rover stable is Evoque, it has

been with us since 2011 and is a

bit of a departure for both nameplates,

the Evoque has a radical

shape and is the pick of the

bunch in terms of looks in today’s

extensive line-up of sport utility

vehicles.

In my opinion, the Evoque has

the X-factor with its sharp shape

and style. It’s also a darn nice

thing to drive, and although it

looks pretty and fashionable, the

elements which make it a Range

Rover haven’t been compromised.

It has comprehensive off-road

ability, and shares many of the

Terrain Response drive components

that are spread across Land-

Rover and Range Rover.

A new Evoque has just landed

here in three specification levels

with a choice of either diesel or

petrol power. The test car was one

of three petrol-powered variations

– the top-of-the-line P300

HSE. The range starts at $92,900

and ends at $117,900, with a host

of options available through the

range.

Part of the Evoque’s makeup is

its design, the interior included.

It is ultra-modern yet functional,

that’s something Range-Rover

has done well in recent years, the

Evoque is a standout, especially

the tiered touch-screen display

panels, which control most of the

major functions, they are intuitive

and easy to read.

Specification items are too

numerous to mention, but I can

report the Evoque HSE wants for

little and, not surprisingly, it gets

full safety kit to provide comfortable

and safe travel.

Under the bonnet sits a

1997cc, turbocharged fourcylinder

petrol engine, it is

a powerful unit with 221kW

and 400Nm of torque. What

makes the P300 stand out is

what is described as a mild

hybrid system and, according to

Range Rover, it harvests energy

during deceleration and stores

RANGE ROVER EVOQUE: Entry-level model into the brand.

it in an under-floor battery.

That energy is then redeployed

during acceleration, enhancing

performance and fuel economy.

Range Rover claims an 8.1-litre

per 100km (35mpg) combined

cycle average for the P300. During

my testing time I picked up figures

close to that at 9l/100km (31mpg),

with a 6.5l/100km (44mpg) instantaneous

figure available cruising

the 100km/h legal limit (engine

speed 1500rpm).

The Evoque in this form will

also cut out a quick standstill to

100km/h time of 6.6sec, and will

complete an overtaking manoeuvre

(80-120km/h) in 4.2sec.

In terms of how those figures

relate to everyday driving means

there is a constant supply of

power on tap, the engine feels

feisty and works with strong midrange

boost.

A lot of that has to do with the

marriage between the engine and

a nine-speed automatic gearbox.

The driveline is silky smooth,

decisive and always ready to

respond.

In terms of handling, the

Evoque feels lithe and nimble. It

isn’t overly tall at 1.65m so there

isn’t a lot of gravitational movement,

and what there is doesn’t

react over the suspension.

There are a multitude of wheel

options available in the range,

the test car was riding on sizeable

235/50 x 20in Pirelli tyres and

grip feels in abundance. However,

I was a little surprised to find

with that amount of rubber on

the ground it didn’t translate to

• Price – Range Rover

Evoque HSE, $117,900

• Dimensions – Length,

4371mm; width, 1996mm;

height, 1649mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

1997cc, 221kW, 400Nm,

nine-speed automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 6.6sec

• Fuel usage – 8.1l/100km

steering feel, it is heavily boosted,

leaving it a little numb off-centre.

However, the Evoque carries

the reputation of its stablemates,

it must be seen as a dynamic,

yet quiet, on-road performance

machine. It also has capability in

the loose that could be deemed

extraordinary.

Range Rover claims a ground

clearance figure of 212mm along

with a wading depth of 600mm.

The approach and departure angles

are also generous. That being

the case, the Evoque is a car for

all situations, least of all the urban

jungle where it also stands out for

its driveability.

In a crowded SUV market the

Evoque has always stood out with

its style and features; nothing has

changed, and it’s a perfect way to

get into one of the world’s greatest

luxury car brands.

I don’t know that I’d go for topof-the-range

(pardon the pun), but

with an affordable starting point

there is a model for all tastes and

budgets.

Gardening

Are you landscaping?

Start with a focal point

ONE OF the most difficult

challenges of creating a new

garden is the age old question –

where do I start?

And one good answer is –

with a focal point.

Whether you’re creating a

design on a 500 sq m plot or trying

to fill a hectare or two, the

solution is the same, the only

difference being that a large

garden can support several focal

points in different areas.

Inspiration for the entire garden

can often be provided by

the focal point. Starting by hunting

for a statue, an urn, a sculpture

or a fountain from which

the rest of the garden design

will spring.

In a small, formal,

Mediterranean-style garden, for

example, the centrepiece should

dictate the shapes that surround

it, giving a structured, geometric

look with hedges and paths.

A limited palette of plants

will further enhance the design

and allow the focal point of the

garden to be exactly that. In

a larger garden there can be a

number of focal points. A collection

of sculptures or urns can be

positioned throughout the space

so that each is the climax of a

journey of discovery through

the landscape.

Although it sounds ambitious,

the pieces need not be expensive

– simple glazed pots or even

garden seats can be used.

Give some thought to creating

a ‘stage set’ for each piece.

Plonking a pot or a deck chair at

the edge of the lawn isn’t going

to do the trick.

Start by forming a base for

your piece – perhaps an area

of pebbles or shells contained

by rocks or sleepers, or a small

paved platform. You can add a

SHELTER:

Form

a base

for your

pergola

using

pebbles

or shells.

sense of enclosure by constructing

a pergola overhead, or a

simple, three sided fence or low

hedge.

A path leading to your

sanctuary will give a sense of

direction and discovery within

the garden, and it can be as

Pruning tips for winter

GOOD GARDEN hygiene is very

important.

Before you start pruning, sterilise

your gear. Remember to use

a prune dressing on larger cuts.

Bush and shrub roses

– Take out any dead or weak

wood, try to keep four to six of

the newer canes. Cut them back

short for show blooms, longer for

garden display.

Remove the older canes back to

the crown. Roses are very forgiving

plants, if you make a mistake

they soon bounce back.

Climbers – Take out the old

and spent canes, tie down up to

six aside of the one year old canes

or the best of the older canes. Cut

out the rest.

Ramblers – Most ramblers

can be pruned straight after summer

flowering. Take out all the

old flowering canes and leave all

the young shoots coming from

lower down.

After pruning, clean up all the

dead leaves and prunings and

burn them, or put them out with

your rubbish.

Do not put them in your compost

as the leaves may be carrying

fungus spores which could

spread back to your garden when

you use the compost.

Spray your roses and the

ground around them with a

good copper spray, then spray

three or four days later with

winter oil.

Hill country farm

emissions drop

New Zealand hill country sheep and

beef livestock are producing about half

the amount of nitrous oxide (N2O) per

unit of nitrogen from urine or dung than

previously thought.

Nitrous oxide is New Zealand’s second

most important agricultural greenhouse

gas, representing 22% of agricultural

emissions, or 11% of total GHG

emissions.

The new findings come from an

AgResearch study commissioned by the

Ministry for Primary Industries, which

involved a meta-analysis of over 1,200

emission factors and data measured

from 139 field experiments over the last

decade. Emission factors represent the

proportion of nitrogen that is released

into the atmosphere from nitrogen

sources such as urine, dung and fertiliser

inputs.

Results from the meta-analysis showed

that emission factors for sheep are about

half that for beef livestock. It was also

found that urine emission factors are

higher for gentle slopes than for steeper

slopes. While the new emission factors

for hill country farms does not mean

dairy cattle, beef cattle, sheep and deer are

emitting less N2O, it does provide a more

accurate calculation of their emissions.

The new factors will be included in the

Ministry for the Environment’s National

Greenhouse Gas Inventory this year.

The inventory is the official estimate

of New Zealand’s human-induced

greenhouse gas emissions and covers

emissions under five sectors: energy;

industrial processes and product use,

agriculture, land use and land use change

and forestry, and waste.

AgResearch scientist Tony van der

Weerden said emissions from livestock

excreta (dung and urine) deposited onto

pasture are the single largest contributor

to N2O emissions in New Zealand. In

2017, N2O emissions from animal excreta

contributed the equivalent of 6.6 million

tonnes of carbon dioxide within the

agriculture sector, equivalent to 17% of

agricultural emissions.

“The change for hill country farms is

significant. For example, N2O emission

factors from excreta deposited by sheep

will be reduced by two-thirds while

emission factors from beef cattle will be

reduced by one-third. At a national level,

the updated calculations result in a 4.4 %

reduction in agricultural emissions and

a 2.1 % decrease to New Zealand’s total

reported emissions for 2017.

“The effect of slope on the urine

emission factor is thought to be due to

a combination of lower soil microbial

activity and lower soil moisture contents

on steeper slopes relative to low slopes.

Under these conditions, smaller amounts

of nitrous oxide are produced and

released into the atmosphere.

“It is not yet fully understood why

sheep have a lower urine emission factor

compared to cattle. However, it is thought

to be related to the lower volume of

urine voided by sheep, which may lead to

greater utilisation of the excreted nitrogen

by plants. However, this theory requires

further investigation.”

The new emission factors were

considered by an independent panel

of agriculture emissions experts, who

recommended they be applied to the 2020

national greenhouse gas inventory, which

will report emissions from 1990 to 2018.

Manaaki Whenua Landcare Research was

a partner in the research.

By industry, the emission reductions

will be:

• Total sheep emissions (including

methane and nitrous oxide emissions)

reported for 2017 will be 10.6 % lower.

• Total beef cattle emissions (including

methane and nitrous oxide emissions)

reported for 2017 will be 5.0 % lower.

• Total dairy cattle emissions including

methane and nitrous oxide emissions)

reported for 2017 will be 1.4 % lower.

Film gets

monkey off

his back

A young Kiwi, Los Angeles-based,

filmmaker has made good use of the

lockdown period to help farmers battling

with mental health issues.

Film maker Hunter Williams (21) says

his documentary aims to introduce

characters from different backgrounds

that a rural audience can see a bit of

themselves in and relate to.

The short film addresses the poorer

mental health outcomes facing the rural

sector and encourages rural people to talk

about the struggles they may be facing

and not keep their feelings bottled up.

Williams was raised in Hawkes Bay

and comes from a large farming family.

He’d returned from Los Angeles to New

Zealand for a few months, due to Covid,

and was able to use the time to finally

complete the documentary which he shot

in October.

The eight minute documentary is called

The Monkeys on Our Backs. Various

farmers and organisations have been

involved in the production, including the

Rural Support Trust and Farmstrong.

Williams told Rural News the motivation

for doing the film came from his own

experience struggling with mental health

related issues.

“This is always something that has been

close to my heart. I also grew up around

farmers and rural communities, with the

majority of my extended family being

based in Central Hawkes Bay.”

Williams says the idea for the

documentary came from a conversation

he had at his mother’s wedding.

“After I had done a speech, a farmer

came up to me and said: ‘you look like

you’ve got monkeys on your back; I’ve got

monkeys on my back too’,” he explained.

“This was the first time this farmer had

opened up about his mental health and it

got me thinking about how hard it must

be for those struggling in rural areas.”

He says the documentary is primarily

aimed at rural people and aims to

introduce a couple of characters from

different backgrounds that the audience

can see a bit of themselves in and relate to.

“I hope that by hearing these stories

people might find it within themselves

to be willing to open up and talk about

how they’re feeling with their friends and

family, as I’m a firm believer that this is a

necessary step when it comes to tackling

this issue.”

Williams says as well as talking to

farmers in the film, he also speaks with

Federated Farmers chief executive Terry

Copeland, Michelle Thompson, who runs

the workplace mental wellness workshop

Good Yarn, and Lon Anderson who is

a regional co-ordinator for the Rural

Support Trust. The documentary also

directs people to these organisations as

places that they can find help if needed.

“I would also love for urban people to be

able to see this film too, to gain a greater

appreciation for our rural communities

and all they do to keep our country

moving.”

Mycoplasma bovis eradication

reaches two year milestone

Source: Minister O’Connor’s office

New Zealand’s to eradicate the cattle disease

Mycoplasma bovis is on track, says Agriculture and

Biosecurity Minister Damien O’Connor.

“Two years ago the Government, DairyNZ, Beef

+ Lamb New Zealand and industry partners

made a bold decision to go hard and commit

to a 10-year, $880 million programme

to eradicate M. bovis to protect our most

important sector and the economy.

“Beef and dairy export prices held up. In fact,

there was record demand for our meat. In March

total red meat monthly exports topped $1 billion for

the first time. This shows that these sectors are wellplaced

to lead us out of this economic crisis.

“As we have with our response to COVID-19, this

Government showed leadership, made a tough decision

and have managed this eradication effort with discipline

and focus, because we knew we were doing it for the

economic and social good of the country.

“We’ve also shown, again, that we’re able to do what

others countries have not in terms of disease eradication

efforts. That’s something our farming community

should be really proud of. I’m certainly very proud of

them.

A key measure of success is the Estimated

Dissemination Rate (EDR). If the EDR is greater than

one, then the disease is growing. If it’s below one, we’re

shrinking the disease.

“The EDR is 0.4, which is down from over two at the

start of the outbreak, so we are looking harder to find

fewer infected animals. This tells us that M. bovis is not

endemic in our national herd.

“We currently have 17 active properties and 232 that

have been cleared of the disease. We’ve culled 154,788

cattle.”

DairyNZ chair Jim van der Poel said there’s no

question M. bovis has had a huge impact on the sector,

particularly those affected farmers and their families.

“While there’s still work to do, farmer feedback has

been heard and processes improved. We are seeing more

farmer-focused processes and shorter turnaround times

for farms under movement restrictions,” said Mr van

der Poel.

“From here, we want to continue speeding up the

process so farmers are moving through the programme

as quickly as possible. M. bovis has been one of our

biggest biosecurity incursions and it has highlighted

how crucial biosecurity is for New Zealand.”

Andrew Morrison, chairman of Beef + Lamb New

Zealand, said farmers deserve a lot of credit for their

efforts in helping to free New Zealand of this disease.

“Although there is still a long way to go, the sector

can be proud of its contribution. We are encouraged by

the increasing number of farmers meeting their NAIT

obligations but we are still short of where we need to be.

“It is vital we continue to lift this compliance,

otherwise we will remain vulnerable to diseases. As

the response to Mycoplasma bovis has found, there is a

significant cost to the sector if farmers do not comply

with NAIT. It’s also vital farmers maintain complete and

accurate NAIT records for the speedy tracing of animals

and ultimately to protect the industry.”

Key reasons

to buy new

Buying new has many advantages. No one has

yet lived in your brand new home and it has that

new home smell and feel.

That doesn’t appeal to the villa crowd.

But many people dream of a home in a

new suburb.

There are many other advantages --

such as being able to customise the home

before it’s built. Buyers love it that their

build guarantee covers most things and

there’s little maintenance to do for the first

10 years.

There are a long list of reasons some

people dream of buying new.

They include:

• Current Building Code requirements

specify a higher standard of insulation

and glazing than you can expect in an

older home, which makes your new home

warmer in winter and cooler in summer,

meaning cheaper to run. In addition

there has been a vast improvement in the

quality and technology of construction

materials over the last decade.

• New homes are designed for modern

lifestyles with walk-in wardrobes, double

or triple car garaging, en suites and heat

pumps.

• Internal access garaging.

• Indoor-outdoor flow. Home builders

before the 1970s rarely thought about this.

• Automatic pool covers and electric

curtains are included in a lot of new

homes, he says.

• In a new subdivision you’re not going

to have five cross-leased small homes next

door to your architecturally designed fivebedroom

dream home, he says.

• New purpose-built shopping and

service centres cater for the modern life.

• New schools can be popular. New

schools are being designed with “Modern

Learning Environments”, which are

considered better layouts for 21st-century

learning.

Another important factor is it’s easier

to get a mortgage. New Reserve Bank of

New Zealand loan to value (LVR) ratio

restrictions from October 1 don’t relate

to new homes. Likewise the KiwiSaver

HomeStart grant is doubled for first time

buyers.

When it comes to new apartment

buildings they’re built to a higher

standard of earthquake/fire proofing and,

hopefully, are no longer leaky.

There are, of course, disadvantages to

buying new. Not everyone wants to wait

six or 12 months to move into their home.

Other downsides include:

• Borrowing to cover the progress

payments is more complex than taking

out a mortgage on an existing property.

• Builders and developers can go broke,

leaving the buyer in an awkward position.

• With some new homes the buyer

effectively needs to become a project

manager.

• You have to deal with council for

building and sometimes resource consent.

• The location may be further from the

centre than you wanted.

• If it’s infill housing you might have a

cross lease situation that some people find

tricky.

• There are often teething problems with

a new build.

• You won’t get a quaint tree-lined

street.

• Your section will most likely be

smaller than that of an existing home.

• Fences, paths and landscaping might

need to be added at a cost.
