Street names honour Kiwi icons

• By Devon Bolger

IF YOU take a stroll down the

streets of this new Rolleston

subdivision you will find

yourself surrounded by kiwi

icons.

Billy T and Sir Richard

Hadlee Lanes are just some of

the street names within Acland

Park.

All but two of the streets

follow the theme in the

subdivision, which has more

than 1000 sections.

Other street names include

Kate Sheppard Drive, who

was fundamental in securing

women the right to vote in

1893, and Ed Hillary Drive

who, of course, conquered Mt

Everest.

Names that have been approved

for the subdivision but

have yet to have signs installed

include Lomu Way (named after

All Black great Jonah Lomu),

Truby King St (named after

the New Plymouth man who

founded Plunket in 1905).

Clement Ave will also

feature in the subdivision

(named after Jemaine Clement

from comedy group Flight of

the Conchords).

Council

introduces

measures

to lower

rates

increase

• By Devon Bolger

RESIDENTS SAY the district

council’s decision not to proceed

with a zero rates increase was

pragmatic.

Rates will increase by about 1.6

per cent for the coming financial

year, lower than the expected 3.5

per cent increase.

The general rate will increase

by three per cent, the water supply

rate by four per cent and the

water race rate by three per cent

which equates to the average 1.6

per cent.

The impact on rates for a

sample of properties in dollar

amounts is outlined:

•An urban residential property

with sewerage – $47 increase

•A rural property near Darfield

– $385 increase

•A rural property near Lincoln

– $100 increase

Other options considered

included keeping rates at the

level they are now, increasing the

volumetric water charge by 21 per

cent and proceeding with the 3.5

per cent increase.

THE DISTRICT council

has made a commonsense

decision over the rates

increase for the coming

financial year (see page 1).

Ratepayers will face an

average increase of 1.6 per

cent, down from a possible

3.5 per cent hike.

This means for an urban

property the increase will

be just under $1 a week, and

between $2 and $6 a week for

a rural property depending

where you live.

The trade off for the 1.6

per cent increase is that

some planned projects such

as refurbishments at the

district council offices, and

public toilets for Lincoln and

Prebbleton will be put on

hold.

Some people who made submissions

to the council wanted

the zero increase option.

But the district has to keep

going forward, even in tough

times.

Demolition team

levels fire-damaged Kirwee Tavern

• By Devon Bolger

THE KIRWEE Tavern has

been demolished after being

destroyed in a fire last year.

Work on demolishing the

building finished on Friday

after it began late last month.

Licensee Steve Evans said

they found a second deep cellar

that was not known about.

“I will reveal more about that

when we investigate it next

week when the rubble has been

cleared.”

The Kirwee Tavern was almost

completely destroyed when a

fire broke out in the late hours

of Christmas Eve. About 60 firefighters

were needed from across

Canterbury to tackle the blaze.

The cause of the fire was

found to be an electrical fault

due to old wiring.

Mr Evans said negotiations

have started with the insurance

company for a rebuild of the

In December last year the

Selwyn District licensing

committee released its decision

to unanimously refuse the

renewal of the on and off liquor

licences held by Evansbury​

Holdings Ltd, of which Mr

Evans sole director.

In January, Mr Evans

appealed the decision to decline

the renewal of the licences.

TUBE SLIDE CLOSED

The new tube slide at Foster Park

has been closed after cracking

was discovered. The new slide

was installed in February after

cracks were discovered on the

original slide in September last

year. The slide will remain closed

while an engineering assessment

is carried out. A spokesman said

further options will be considered

following the assessment.

INTERSECTION UPGRADE

The upgrade of the Tennyson St

and Lowes Rd intersection, in

Rolleston, is expected to be complete

next month. A district council

spokesman said the contractor

has gained momentum since work

recommenced after the lockdown.

They have been concentrating on

completing work on underground

services as well as kerbs and

footpaths. The upgrade includes the

installation of traffic lights at the

intersection. The project is expected

to be complete by July 23. Eleven

thousand vehicles a day travel across

the intersection and the upgrades

are aiming to improve safety. The

project is expected to cost $3.2

million and the work is a part of a

wider programme to upgrade three

major intersections in Rolleston.

‘I feel that this was a

pragmatic decision’

• From page 1

The district council identified

savings of $1.7 million to reduce

the level of the rates increase.

Deferred projects include refurbishments

at the district council

offices and public toilets for Lincoln

and Prebbleton. Catering at

district council meetings will also

be stopped.

Councillor Grant Miller was

the only one to vote against it, instead

voting to increase the volumetric

water charge increased.

Rolleston Residents Association

chairwoman Michelle Jones said

she understands why the decision

was made.

“I feel that this was a pragmatic

decision based on the feedback

that was given to the council.

“While I personally would have

liked a rates freeze, after reading

all the submissions I can see why

this decision has been reached.”

Leeston community committee

chairman Lloyd Clausen wrote a

submission on behalf of the committee

which said they supported

the planned 3.5 per cent increase.

He says he thinks the decision

to proceed with a lower increase

was a pragmatic one.

Michelle

Jones

Lloyd

Clausen

“The district council have to

be the ones to make the big decisions.

We presented a certain

viewpoint but they had a lot more

information that we didn’t have.”

Weedons Residents Association

chairman Stephen Bain, who

made an individual submission

calling for a freeze on rates, said

he is appalled the district council

is proceeding with any rates

increases.

“It is a very middle-income

area and there are people who are

going to be feeling very uneasy

about their jobs, the last thing

they need is an announcement

there rates are going up.”

Anne Richardson

A life-long passion for wildlife

Anne Richardson has

worked for the Isaac

Conservation and Wildlife

Trust. The Hororata

resident speaks to

Devon Bolger about her

passion for birds and

becoming an officer of

the New Zealand Order

of Merit

How did your passion for

conservation start?

I actually started work at

Orana Park. I worked there

for 10 years and like every new

keeper wanted to work with the

lions, tigers and monkeys.

I soon specialised in birds

because it is actually a challenge

just to keep them alive let alone

get them to breed.

While I was there, Lady Diana

Isaac came down and met me

because she wanted to move into

conservation. She asked me for

advice on what birds she could

have and how to build an aviary.

We got to know each other

quite well and she made me

a very tempting offer to start

working in conservation.

The trust was already established

at that point, it actually

started in the 1950s when they

first moved onto the land. It has

all been quarried.

There were quite a few aviaries

here when I started. We have

just built upon what was there

already. I went on as the wildlife

manager and have kept that position

since.

What does the Isaac

Conservation and Wildlife

Trust do?

It is private and not open to

the public and sits on the Isaac

Construction site.

The trust fully funds the whole

programme that we do such as

building the aviaries and all our

wages and everything.

I have connections at the Department

of Conservation and

one day we pointed out to them

COMMITMENT: Anne Richardson with ‘Hunter’ a blue duck. The Hororata resident has been

working for the Isaac Conservation and Wildlife Trust for 28 years. PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

that we were prepared to build

aviaries and help with endangered

birds.

We just slowly started getting

all the endangered species and

built the aviaries to suit them. I

think because we are not open to

the public we just do so well with

the breeding.

I just love what I do, I mean

it is not even work for me, it is

a passion. When you have the

resources to be able to do it, it is

amazing.

With this being a working

quarry we can build really huge

aviaries and we have all the road

equipment and machinery we

need on-site.

All of the truck drivers that

work here are all really supportive

of what we are doing.

Whenever I walk past them

they always ask me what we are

up to so I think they are really

keen and proud of what we do

here.

Are there any achievements

or successes with the trust that

stand-out for you?

One of the big ones is we

started doing the incubation of

blue duck eggs, DOC actually

collected them from the wild, we

incubated and hand-reared them

and were able to release them

into the wild.

The adults would actually

double-clutch, which is when

an animal lays two sets of viable

eggs, with DOC doing all the

predator work we were doubling

the population numbers.

We increased the number

of blue ducks so much, it has

worked really well.

Another one is our work with

the orange-fronted parakeet,

they are only found up in the

Arthur’s Pass area.

We have actually saved them

from extinction. We bred them

here and released them into the

wild.

I think the good part about the

job is that we can actually go on

the releases too so we can go out

to the wild and see what happens

after we have bred the animals

so that is really cool. That is our

little reward getting to go along

to them.

Do you have a favourite bird?

I would have to say the black

stilt because they are really really

endangered and we have helped

them out a lot with DOC in

Twizel.

I also like the blue duck

babies because they are so cute

and we have done so much

hand-rearing, we could end up

breeding about 30-40 of them

a season.

You were recently made an

officer of the New Zealand

Order of Merit, what was that

like?

I actually thought it was a hoax

when I got the email. I thought

someone was having me on.

Then I read it through again

and thought oh my god. I was

really tickled about it actually.

I think it is because you are

being rewarded for something

you do, but really it’s just a

passion to me and I love doing

it so to get an award is really

amazing.

How long have you lived in

Hororata?

I have been here 22 years. I

travel to work near Christchurch

Airport every day. I actually

moved out to Hororata with my

dogs from Christchurch.

What do you like about living

there?

I look out my back window

and see the mountains. I live in a

really old cottage on quite a bit of

land, and I love my garden.

I don’t like living in the city,

it is so much quieter and more

peaceful out here. I would never

go back into town now.

Do you have any hobbies or

skills outside of conservation?

No. Well, actually I would

have to say dogs. I used to

have quite a few Alaskan

malamutes, but am dogless at

the moment. I am hoping to get

another one.

Could you tell me about your

family?

I am divorced. I moved out to

Hororata with the dogs and left

the husband in Christchurch.

I do not have any children. I

would never give up my job for

that, I made that decision when I

was at Orana Park.

I was only about 23 or 24 but

I thought no I don’t want kids I

love my job too much.

“The aim of the trial was

to gather data and assess the

operation of the scooters over

a six-month operating period,

which is why we have extended

the trial.

“Staff are carrying out ongoing

analysis of the data being provided

to the council, which will

be included in the review of the

e-scooters.”

The district council has not

received any applications from

other scooter companies to operate

in Selwyn.

The e-scooters are allowed

to operate in Rolleston, Lincoln

and Prebbleton and to travel

between the towns using cycle

lanes.

What’s your view on:

A proposal to modify the

resource consent process

for work on the reinstatement

of Christ Church Cathedral

The resource consent process can be modified under the

Christ Church Cathedral Reinstatement Act 2017 (the Act)

by an Order in Council (Order) made by the Governor-General.

Before a final decision is made to recommend the proposed

Order to the Governor-General, the Act requires it to be

tested robustly. This includes seeking your feedback on

an explanation document that sets out:

• an explanation of what the proposal is intended to achieve;

• a description of the proposed effect of the Order; and

• an explanation of why the Minister considers that the Order

is necessary or desirable for the purpose of the Act.

Let us know your views on the explanation document

The document can be viewed and written comment made online

at www.dpmc.govt.nz/cathedraloic

Also, they are available on request from Christchurch City Council

service centres and libraries and the main office of Selwyn and

Waimakariri District Councils during normal business hours.

Anyone can make a written comment but they must

be received by: 5pm Monday, 22 June 2020.

Biodiversity to get a boost

A NEW wetland near Tai Tapu

aiming to create a new habitat

for native plants and animals in

the area has been completed.

Since the Covid-19 lockdown

ended, contractors have been

able to complete the final

earthworks for the wetland at

Ahuriri Lagoon which drains

into Lake Ellesmere.

Final works included the

removal of a temporary earthen

dam between the culvert

This connected the wetland

with the river, making it fully

operational.

An Environment Canterbury

Book sale planned

at Ellesmere College

ELLESMERE COLLEGE is

planning a book sale to try to

make up for lost fundraising

opportunities during the

Covid-19 lockdown.

Student Margarida Dias said:

“We would very much appreciate

it if everyone in our community

could help.

“Either by donating any books,

records, puzzles, DVD’s and

magazines they no longer need or

by coming along to the event.”

The book sale will be held at

the school between 2-6pm on

June 26.

Margarida said the lockdown

brought big challenges for the

school.

“The student council has barely

had an opportunity to come

together as a group, so we had to

re-think how we could operate

during the lockdown conditions.

“We started our meetings online

through Google Meets and

this worked really well for the 24

members who represent students

across all of the year levels.”

She said an important focus

for the student council this year

is creating a caring school community

“We encourage everyone to

SELWYN TIMES

Thank you for

helping your

community

Fall Zones

To all of you who have had your trees

trimmed before they became a

problem, thank you for keeping all the

farms working and families in your

community warm, happy and healthy.

We know it can be a hassle, but tree branches touching the

powerlines are one of the main causes of power cuts. So, you can

be proud of the fact that you kept the local cowsheds milking,

water pumps pumping and sheep shearers shearing. And if it’s

still on your to-do list, now’s the time to do it, as winter sets in.

You’re our priority.

Notice and Growth limit zones

B

A

Power line voltage A. Growth limit zone B. Notice zone

66,000 volts 4.0m 5.0m

33,000 volts 2.5m 3.5m

11,000 volts 1.6m 2.6m

400/230 volts 0.5m 1.5m

We’re not exaggerating.

On our network, 10-20% of all unplanned power outages are

caused by trees — including vegetation — coming into contact

with power lines. Other than this, fire damage to property from

branches sparking in dry conditions and serious injury from

electrocution from contact with trees touching power lines are

also possible consequences of not maintaining your trees.

How close is too close?

While most damage is caused by trees falling on power lines,

significant risk exists from trees merely touching them. This risk

increases the higher the voltage of the power line.

The minimum distances that must be maintained between trees

and power lines, as defined in the Electricity (Hazards from

Trees) Regulations 2003, are outlined in the diagrams above.

All vegetation should be kept out of the growth limit zone and

preferably the notice zone.

Sometimes it may not be practical to have a tree trimmed at the

rate at which it grows and unfortunately, this means it may need

to be removed. Other situations may require trees to be removed,

most commonly when they are at a high risk of falling due to

disease or adverse weather events.

Where do I start?

Before you begin, remember to keep yourself, and those around

you, safe. We recognise that not everyone is experienced in tree

trimming and are happy to advise you on what to do. We can arrange

for trees near power lines to be trimmed at your expense, however

we recommend you hire professionals to safely carry out the work.

If you or someone working for you intends to work within four

metres of power lines, a close approach consent is required from

Orion before you start. As a tree owner, you may be liable for any

damage caused by carrying out trimming or felling of trees.

Will I be fined if I don’t comply?

If a cut or trim notice is given to you and you fail to have the tree

trimmed and/or advise us of the time and location of the trim

without a reasonable excuse, this is an offence. This will make you

liable for a fine not exceeding $10,000. If the offence continues,

you will be liable for a further fine of not more than $500 for every

day or part day during which the offence continues.

More info can be found on our website and if

you have any questions or notice any trees

touching power lines in your area, please call

us on 03 363 9898 or 0800 363 9898.

oriongroup.co.nz

Orion operates, and maintains, the electricity distribution

network that provides power to central Canterbury.

We are always here to help if you have any questions

or concerns about the network.

Journeys through stars

and story for Matariki

Journeys through the stars and stories will be at the heart of Matariki celebrations in Selwyn.

Matariki is the traditional Māori new year celebration, observed in July, when the constellation

of Matariki rises in the dawn sky. It is a time for whānau to come together, to remember those

who have passed away in the last year and to celebrate the dawn of a new mahinga kai (food

and natural resource) season. With the kūmara recently harvested it was also a time of feasting,

celebrating and wānanga (learning).

For Ngāi Te Ruahikihiki, the local people of Taumutu, the kūmara harvest is even more significant

as Taumutu is the southernmost point where kūmara was grown in Aotearoa New Zealand. This

year Matariki will be marked on 13 July, but celebrations will be held surrounding that date.

To mark Matariki in Selwyn there will be a special visit from Manu, a digital guide who will take

people on a walk through the maramataka or the Māori lunar calendar. Using a smartphone app

‘The Journeys of Manu’ will see virtual guide Manu tell the story of the maramataka as people

walk along a path with way points in Foster Park and along the Liffey in Lincoln. The Journeys of

Manu app can be downloaded from arajourneys.com/journeys-of-manu-maramataka.

The Journeys of Manu will be available from Monday 6 to Sunday 19 July.

The Council will also provide a star guide, put together by volunteers from the West Melton

Observatory, so children and parents can study the night sky and learn about the constellations,

planets and moons. This will be available from Council facilities.

Selwyn libraries will hold story times at the libraries from Tuesday 7 to Friday 10 July. There will

also be a star hunt quiz with prizes available at each of the Selwyn Libraries and the Council

recreation centres, and an online kite-making tutorial.

A message from the Mayor

As we reach a new milestone in New Zealand from the impacts of COVID-19, Mayor Sam Broughton

has shared a message reflecting on the past months.

We did it – and when I say we, I mean Team Selwyn.

No part of our community was untouched by the effects of COVID-19 and every one of us played our part

in getting through the most extraordinary three months in New Zealand’s modern history.

From the outset our Council stuck to a simple plan—keep essential services going, respond to

immediate needs and look out for the vulnerable.

While we were busy keeping on top of these basics, our community pulled out all the stops. I was

humbled by the countless acts of kindness, ingenuity and compassion shown in Level 3 and 4. A great

example was local vegetable farmer Allen Lim inviting volunteers to pick excess stock for food banks.

He has now offered a section of his property where he will grow vegetables exclusively for foodbanks

on an ongoing basis

Reflecting the gargantuan community effort, our Community Response Teams mail dropped information

on support services to over 1500 isolated members of our community, and our welfare team called

3000 vulnerable people across Canterbury to see if there was anything they needed. Much needed food

parcels were delivered and we manned a 24/7 help line.

As we all become more reliant in the internet our library staff called

their over-70s members to check in on them and offer support with

online services. We are all ‘Zoom experts’ now.

As a Council we rapidly adapted, setting up online tools and other ways

to keep services going. We learnt many lessons from this experience

that help us deliver a better service to you. I urge you to do the same.

As we pick up the pieces, it is evident that there is still much hardship

to come. The impact on our households and businesses is still not

fully understood. We will continue to do all we can to support those in

need. You can do your bit by supporting local, that’s what I’ll be doing

for the foreseeable future.

Selwyn rates increase cut to

1.6% average

The Council has signalled it expects to cut its rates increase from an

average 3.5% to around 1.6% for the 2020/21 year, starting from 1

July 2020.

The Council completed deliberations on its draft Annual Plan last

week and indicated it had identified net savings of $1.7 million,

which will be used to reduce the level of the rates increase.

The draft Annual Plan, developed prior to the COVID-19 pandemic,

initially proposed an average rates increase of 3.5%. A revised

plan was issued for consultation in April, and the Council asked for

community feedback on options for reducing the rates increase.

Savings identified during the consultation process include deferring

a number of new building projects, streamlining some planning

work, and removing township and ward discretionary funds from the

coming year’s budgets.

Refurbishment work at the Council’s Rolleston offices will also be

deferred, and catering at Council meetings will be stopped. There

will be no increase in staffing numbers this year, other than those

required for new facilities currently under construction. There will

also be no funding for staff salary increases. Council chief executive

David Ward had already confirmed he will take a 15% salary

reduction for the coming 12 months.

Most requests for unbudgeted new funding in the coming year will

not be accommodated at this stage, and several projects will be

reconsidered under the Long-Term Plan process next year.

The expected 1.6% rates increase is an average across the district.

The actual increase will vary according to different property types

and the services provided. The range of increases is expected to

vary between 1.4% for urban residential properties (around $1 a

week) and 3.2% for some larger rural properties. The Council has

also put in place a rates assistance package to help people affected

by COVID-19, including an extended rates payment period and

reduced penalty fees.

The final plan, including confirmed budget and rates proposals, will

be considered by the Council for adoption on Wednesday 24 June.

Demolition of Lincoln

building begins

Work will begin next week on the demolition of the Lincoln Chinese

Takeaway building on Gerald Street.

The building at 5 Gerald Street is being removed as the first step in

opening up the retail area and transforming the street appeal for the

Lincoln Town Centre upgrade.

The work was due to take place at the end of March, but had to

be delayed due to the Alert Level 4 lockdown. Work to prepare

the building for demolition is due to begin on Thursday 25 June is

expected to be completed by Friday 7 August.

The demolition will also allow further developments in this area to

occur more easily during the Lincoln Town Centre upgrade, which is

scheduled to start in 2023, and allow any developments to remain in

keeping with the rest of the town centre design.

A traffic management plan will be in place for the duration of the

demolition works. Car parks directly in front of the building will

also be closed during the work for safety reasons and for use by

the contractors. Pedestrian access to the adjacent businesses will

be maintained.

A specialist team will safely remove asbestos from the building during

July before the demolition itself starts on 27 July. New Zealand has

strict laws for safe removal and this team will be working to the

Worksafe New Zealand Code of Practice for the management and

removal of asbestos and a site specific safety plan.

traffic heading away from the intersection, but

not towards it. A stop/go system and speed restrictions are also in

place on Tennyson Street.

Leeston Road and Old Bridge Road intersection is being upgraded.

Traffic management is in place.

Trents Road is closed heading south east away from Springs Road

while upgrades are made to the sewer system.

Leeston Road and Brookside Irwell Road intersection is being

Brookside Irwell Road and a stop/go system is in place for traffic

looking to turn from Leeston Road into Brookside Irwell Road.

Helping others follow in her footsteps

Continuing our series celebrating the Faces of Selwyn. Visit selwyn.govt.nz/facesofselwyn for the full story.

Sheetal Sharma always loved everything about New Zealand. She worked as an education consultant

in India promoting study options in New Zealand until she convinced herself and her husband to study

there too.

“He was planning for higher studies in the US, but I convinced him to come to New Zealand because of

the Kiwi lifestyle and friendly people.

"I just want to live a life in a country where you are close to nature, because I come from a busy city

with lots of traffic and people. The total population of New Zealand is the total population of my city.”

The pair arrived in Invercargill in 2012 and worked in Wellington and Auckland, before moving to

Christchurch in 2017.

Arriving in Christchurch, Sheetal was pregnant with her first child and they went searching for their first

family home. After a visit to friends in Rolleston the couple decided it was the place to be.

Fortunately, the property next door was for sale and they snatched it up.

Sheetal works full time with international students at Lincoln University, helping them to settle into the

new country and supporting their academic needs.

“I understand the challenges of new migrants and I really like to help them. It doesn’t matter if they

come from India, China or any other country; I feel that they have the same challenges in settling in, the

language barrier or the cultural shock, or homesickness – which is why I took up this job.”

Growing up in Hyderabad, in southern India, she lived with her

extended family and her husband under the same roof and had lots

of domestic help that took care of needs around the house. Listening,

reading and watching the news helped her to adapt, she says.

By attending many cultural activities, visiting the temple for prayers

and cooking biryani rice Sheetal stays connected to her culture.

She spends most of her free time with her three-year-old daughter

Arnika who loves feeding the ducks at the pond near their home.

NZI Rural Women NZ

Business Awards open

Rural Women New Zealand (RWNZ)

and Premier Partner NZI are excited to

launch the NZI Rural Women NZ Business

Awards 2020.

“The Awards are a great opportunity to

showcase the creativity and innovation

of rural women entrepreneurs and how

they support rural communities with their

businesses,” says National President Fiona

Gower.

“We are especially pleased that NZI will

be joining as Premier Partner again this

year.

“We recognise that it has been an

incredibly tough time for many New

Zealanders and that makes it even more

relevant to celebrate the resilience of these

women-owned and operated businesses by

holding these Awards this year.

“There has never been a better time to

celebrate and support local businesses.

“Many of these businesses have grown

because a rural woman has identified a

need in their family or community and

they have developed their skills and

knowledge to bring these businesses to life.

“These business owners employ local

people as their businesses grow and

also support other local businesses and

suppliers which in turn, creates more

opportunities in those local communities

and economies.

“As a result of the Covid-19 virus

this year the judges will specifically be

considering the resilience, innovation and

adaptability of the entrants’ businesses as

part of the judging criteria.

“We want to encourage rural women

who own and/or operate rural businesses

to enter the Awards this year so that we

can support and promote them, and

celebrate their entrepreneurial journeys.

“If you are a rural woman in business,

enter. If you know a rural woman in

business, encourage her to enter.

Entries close on Friday, 31 July at

5pm. For details on how to enter and

the Award categories, visit: https://

ruralwomennz.nz/home/nzi-ruralwomen-new-zealand-business-awards/


Take it from last year’s

Rural Champion, Kate

Taylor, who said that

the process of entering

is just as valuable as

the reward so don’t

hold back – just enter

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Good winter grazing

practices urged as

cold weather closes in

The Winter Grazing Action Group

says farmers are taking steps to improve

wintering systems despite the challenges

of COVID-19 restrictions and weather

events.

Action group chair Dr Lindsay Burton

said it was important everyone worked

together to ensure farmers had the right

tools to get through winter.

“Ensuring you follow a gradual

transition plan when moving your

animals from pasture to crop and back

again will help prevent issues. This is

particularly important for cattle wintered

on fodderbeet,” says Dr Burton.

“For farmers, the focus heading into

winter should be on providing the right

feed at the right time, as well as shelter

and easy access to drinking water. Doing

this should have the flow-on effect of

limiting stock movement and help reduce

damage to crop and soil.”

Farmers and rural professionals should

refer to the levy organisations websites

– Beef+LambNZ, DairyNZ & Deer

Industry NZ. They have advice on good

winter grazing practices and specific

recommendations for transitioning stock

onto crop and balancing the diet which

differs between the species.

During the lockdown period, Dr

Burton says the action group has

remained committed to progressing its

work to improve wintering practices,

meeting virtually to keep up the

momentum.

“We recognise the good work that

has already been done by farmers

throughout New Zealand but particularly

in Southland, to improve their wintering

systems. The fact that everyone has been

so proactive, in spite of the challenges

they have faced with adverse weather

events and COVID-19 restrictions,

should be applauded.”

Following a nationwide anti-grazing

campaign which highlighted some

Southland cows standing in mud,

Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor

set up a taskforce which undertook a

review of current practices and made 11

recommendations to be taken forward

by the pan-sector Winter Grazing Action

Group.

The recommendations, which

included some work to understand and

mitigate the causes of the animal welfare

consequences from intensive winter

grazing practices; and work to recognise

the barriers to adopting improved animal

welfare practices, have been taken up by

the action group with gusto, Taskforce

chair Dr John Hellström says.

“Improving winter grazing systems

is not something that can be achieved

overnight but the action group is on

the right track and I’m confident that

the recommendations the taskforce

made are being progressed to ensure

improvements for this winter and

beyond.”

The action group is focussed

on educating farmers on careful

management when introducing stock to

new feed types and ensuring contingency

plans are in place to manage any severe

or prolonged wet winter weather.

In the short-term, Burton says there

are actions farmers can take now to

ensure the immediate welfare of their

animals, including making appropriate

shelter available when needed as well as

suitable areas for stock to lie down.

“That could be as simple as planning to

graze the best sheltered paddock last, and

keeping it ‘up your sleeve’ for a weather

event.

“Changing practice will take a long

time; this is not a one-winter solution but

we will keep working with farmers and

sector leaders to improve things now and

in the future.”

It’s a good time

to own a home

Copper Ridge showhome - 1 Albert Wills Ave.

Current market conditions are particularly

favourable to home ownership. Interest rates are at

their lowest for some time and there are a number of

incentives available for first home buyers.

Now is a good time to enter the housing market,

to increase the equity in your home by paying more

principal off your mortgage, or to trade up.

Government restrictions on the loan-to-value ratio

(LVR) have recently been eased, giving banks the

ability to lend to people with a lower deposit. First

home buyers also have the capacity to draw down

their KiwiSaver funds, and to apply for a Government

HomeStart Grant. Add to this, the low interest rates,

and there may never have been a better time to move

from renting to realising the dream of owning a

home. More financial support may also be available to

first home buyers who build new.

The team at Generation Homes are very

experienced in assisting first home buyers, guiding

them through the process and determining what is

right for their needs.

Generation Homes’ owners, Evan and Nadja Beker

are committed to ensuring their clients have a positive

experience. Clients are included throughout the build

and their Sales Consultant keeps them informed as

the build progresses. Their expertise and customer

focus is the reason they have hundreds of satisfied

clients.

A full design service is part of the Generation

Homes’ package, along with assistance in the choice

of fixtures and fittings, and services of a Colour

Consultant.

Generation Homes offers peace of mind with a fully

fixed price contract and guaranteed build time so

clients know exactly what their new home will cost,

and when they will move in.

A complete package with no surprises is part of the

Generation Homes’ experience. From the land to the

building of the home, kitchen appliances, fixtures and

fittings, hard landscaping like paths and driveway,

clothesline and letterbox, all are included in the

quoted price. There is also the capacity to have the

soft landscaping of lawns and garden beds completed.

Many extra features are part of Generation Homes’

standard specifications, like: a RibRaft foundation

ensuring the most solid foundation available; solid

external building wrap, which adds rigidity to the

home with less movement and helps reduce future

maintenance; architraves and coving; and tiled

windowsills in high traffic areas.

Home ownership provides financial security,

something which is even more important in these

unprecedented times. Generation Homes can help

you have your own brand new, three bedroom home

in a well-serviced community with good schooling,

for as little as $450,000. To learn more, visit: www.

SELWYN TIMES Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Wednesday June 17 2020 29

Front

An open letter to the residents of Selwyn,

I’m writing to introduce myself and seek your support in electing me as your next Member of Parliament.

In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and the economic crisis it has caused, Selwyn needs an

experienced, energetic, empathetic representative - and we urgently need to return to a National

Government to get New Zealand working again.

I’ve worked as journalist and an export trade specialist, a communications manager for large tourism

companies and a jack of all trades for small start ups. I grew up on a sheep and beef farm here in this

region and I spent nearly four years working for the previous National Government - three years as Press

Secretary to Rt Hon Sir Bill English as Minister of Finance and as Prime Minister.

All those experiences have taught me how crucial it is for our families and businesses to be

supported with frameworks that allow them to get ahead.

With our current local MP Amy Adams moving from Selwyn to the National Party list, our electorate

needs another strong voice in Parliament to continue advocating for the critical infrastructure and

investment our rapidly growing communities need to realise our ambition.

It would be my privilege to serve you.

Kind regards

Nicola Grigg

National Party Candidate for Selwyn

I love this region. I was born and raised on our family farm in

Mt Somers - I grew up here and am proud to call it home.

My whole family farm in this district - from the Rakaia Gorge, down to the foothills,

and out across the Canterbury plains.

I’ve been immersed in farming and politics most of my life - I am the great granddaughter

of the MP for Ashburton, Major Arthur Grigg and his wife Mary Grigg –

who later became National’s first female MP following the death of her husband in

Africa during the second World War.

In my most recent role as a trade specialist at New Zealand Trade and Enterprise

I’ve been given some real insights into how business owners in this electorate are

coping in the current economic environment.

I care deeply about the sustainable conservation of our natural environment and,

in my spare time, spend as much of it as I can in Selwyn’s great outdoors hiking,

running, riding and skiing.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

SELWYN TIMES

Back

In my view the biggest impact of Covid-19 on Selwyn

communities has been economic - unemployment

is expected to jump to 7.1 per cent, there’s been

an alarming 48% increase in people applying for

job seeker benefits and recent Infometrics data

confirmed our local economy will contract by around

5 per cent in the next year, coupled with the loss of

over 2000 jobs.

This is especially concerning given Selwyn has

historically been something of a national economic

powerhouse, with a GDP at twice that of the rest of

the country and unemployment at half the rate.

That is why I so firmly believe we absolutely must

return to National’s proven formula of economic

management. Now, more than ever, we need to

deliver a message of hope and ambition to New

Zealanders by offering practical, solutions-driven

policy and ideas - as only National can.

With just three months to go until the 2020 General

Election, I will be working tirelessly to earn your vote so

that we can return to the kind of leadership that will

allow Selwyn to grow and thrive.

I will be out and about in the electorate every day

and I look forward to meeting you. Please feel free to

contact me at any time.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

Managing the

mortgage

The Covid-19 lockdown has led to

some people experiencing financial

hardship.

Local mortgage broker, Ricky Rhodes

says a key to managing debt is talking to

your broker or bank.

“Everyone’s circumstances are

different so it’s important to get

individual advice. There are a range

of options available to assist people

who are finding it hard to meet their

mortgage commitments,” advises Ricky.

Support packages are generally

tailored to the needs of individual

borrowers. Options range from

restructuring a mortgage to deferring

or minimising payments, like paying

interest only for a period of time.

Restructuring a loan, means those

who have the capacity can still work

at decreasing the principal component

of their mortgage, along with making

interest payments. Lower repayments

will extend the length of a mortgage.

Mortgage deferment allows mortgage

repayments to be suspended for up to

six months. The amount owed will be

higher in six months’ time, than would

otherwise be the case, had the mortgage

holiday not been taken. The advantage

of this option, is it allows people time to

work out their finances.

Where finances are particularly

tight, interest only payments can be

made. The loan balance will not change

so more time will be added to the

mortgage.

Where only one partner’s income

has been affected, rather than choosing

interest only payments, it might be

more financially viable to make at least

some payment off the principal as well.

Ricky reminds: “Every situation is

different. The most important thing

is for people to get through the now,

understanding the options available.”

Where it is possible, he encourages

people to pay more than the minimum

amount off their mortgage so when

situations like unemployment occur,

their payments can easily be adjusted

back to the minimum required.

“Paying your mortgage off as quickly

as possible, reduces the interest expense

of your mortgage and overall cost of

purchasing your home,” advises Ricky.

“Maintaining a habit of paying more

also creates future opportunities such

as the chance to upscale your home.”

Home ownership provides financial

security and the opportunity to

increase your asset base whereas

continually borrowing against a

mortgage for holidays and other

consumables simply increases the

principal owing over time. The aim

should be to purchase a property

within your means rather than

set your expectations too high

and over-extend your financial

position by stretching the budget

too far.

“With interest rates so low, it is

a good time to pay off your own

home rather than paying off the

landlord’s loan,” says Ricky who

admits he enjoys helping people

buy a home.

broker, Ricky Rhodes.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Rolleston’s

Falcon’s Landing has released stage 5.

residential

growth

Eastonfield, sections 550-748sqm.

For some years, land has been

opening up for residential development

throughout the district. While housing

subdivisions have popped up in

Darfield, Leeston, Lincoln, West Melton

and Southbridge, the most extensive

growth has been in Rolleston.

Pockets of land have been re-zoned

residential on an almost continual basis,

offering options on section sizes and

locations for people who are looking to

build a new home. Development and

the sale of lots has progressed at such

a speed that as quickly as stages in new

subdivision are released the sections are

sold.

Along Springston-Rolleston Road,

a few sections remain in Branthwaite.

At Falcon’s Landing, stage five has now

been released. The four previous stages

of the planned total 600 sections, which

range from 430-1,000sqm and start at

$158,000, are nearly all sold.

Bordering the Lincoln-Rolleston Road

a number of new housing subdivisions

have risen from the paddocks. Across

from Rolleston College, Urban Estates

has a prime location, close to the town’s

amenities, perhaps explaining why

there are only a few lots still available.

In the smaller Eastonfield next door,

sections range from 550 to 748sqm with

a starting price of $180,500.

At The Borough (across from and

part of the Faringdon development)

land options are between 488sqm

and 550sqm, priced from $165,000.

In Acland Park, lots range from 400-

1,000sqm and begin at $155,000.

Urban Estates has another

subdivision, Fairbairn, on Fairbairn

Road. This will ultimately link up with

Goulds Road, along which the housing

development of Goulds Estate offers

house and land packages. Nearby on

East Maddisons Road, sections are now

being sold at Olivefields.

In West Rolleston, the very last

sections of Stonebrook, Newman Park

and Maddisons Park are for sale.

To the east, a small pocket of land has

opened up in Park Lane while the larger

blocks in the eco-friendly emphasis

Coles Fields, have been ticking away.

Affordability is a key influencer in

attracting people to Rolleston. Section

prices come in around $50,000 to

$100,000 less than for an equivalent

size in the city. Land prices in Rolleston

are generally comparable with little

variance in price. There is also a good

number of house and land packages

available.

Retirees too, are now catered for

in Rolleston with the Mary Brittan

Lifestyle Village, developed by Mike

Greer Homes, The Boulevard and

Woodcroft Estate.

Urban Estates has a prime location.
