Redcliffs School in breach

of boundary conditions

• By Jess Gibson

PART OF the new $16m

Redcliffs School has been built in

breach of a condition set out in

the District Plan.

The Beachville Rd campus

reopened on June 22 after a

nine-year journey to rebuild the

school, which was demolished

at its former Main Rd site following

the February 22, 2011,

earthquake.

But behind

the scenes, there

have been issues

over a breach of

boundary conditions,

a report

has revealed.

Chris

Doudney

Ministry

of Education

applied to

“regularise” the

breach, which was heard by the

Resource Management Act hearings

panel on Friday.

The meeting was adjourned

and MoE has two weeks to submit

a written right of reply.

Once the commissioner has

received this information there

is a further 15 working days for

the decision. Under the District

Plan, a rule states no part of a

building should project beyond a

building envelope contained by a

recession plane.

It is to prevent effects on

adjoining properties, and in this

case, the building’s height has

proven impacts on daylight and

sunlight into the section at 19

Main Rd.

Friends of Redcliffs Park

spokesman Chris Doudney, who

was strongly opposed to the new

school being built at the Beachville

Rd site, has read the report

identifying the breach.

He said the breach “really

confirms what an unsuitable

site” Redcliffs Park was for a new

school.

Mr Doudney petitioned for the

school to be built at the former

site in 2018 but was unsuccessful.

The owner of 19 Main Rd, an

empty section neighbouring the

school, complained to the city

council about the height of the

building last year.

Pot holes ‘downright depressing’

• By Jess Gibson

HEATHCOTE Valley residents

will have to wait until the

weather gets warmer before

a road badly damaged by a

contentious pipeline project gets

fixed.

Scruttons Rd has been badly

chewed up while a $9 million

pipeline goes in during phase

four of the city council’s Lyttelton

Harbour Wastewater

Scheme, frustrating residents

Creag Foxton-McCulloch and

Victoria Foxton.

“We once had a quiet lovely

piece of Christchurch where

people came to walk every day.

It is now just an appalling mess

and breaks my heart as well

as those people who enjoyed

coming here. No-one bothers

walking down any more,” Mr

Foxton-McCulloch said.

It has now been 14 months

since Heathcote Valley residents

began experiencing the impacts

the pipeline being installed outside

their property and they say

it has been “torturous” during

that time.

They have previously complained

to the city council about

noise, dust, potholes, mud and

ground-shaking, among other

impacts.

Mr Foxton-McCulloch

and Ms Foxton say they

were told before the project

started they would only be

inconvenienced for about six

months.

DEVASTATING:

Victoria

Foxton and

Creag Foxton-

McCulloch

say people

no longer

walk along

Scruttons Rd

due to ongoing

construction

and damage

caused by a city

council project.

Now they say the muddy,

pothole-filled area outside their

home is “downright depressing.”

The city council’s project

team has worked with impacted

residents over the course of the

works to find solutions to these

concerns.

City council head of Three

Waters and Waste Helen Beaumont

said it is Fulton Hogan’s

responsibility to maintain the

site in a safe state and restore the

site once the work is complete.

“As soon as the warmer

weather and sunshine returns

(our usual growing season) the

contractor will be reinstating

the land along Scruttons Rd and

re-grassing the berms.”

Construction of the pipeline

is almost complete, with “150m

of pipeline remaining, plus the

installation of two access chambers,”

she said.

Mr Foxton-McCulloch said he

and Ms Foxton will be meeting

with city council staff to discuss

the issues next week.

“We’re still in the tunnel and

I don’t know if we can see a

light. But once we get out of the

tunnel we’ll have a look and see

what they’re actually going to

do.”

He said a previous attempt

to re-grass berms and fix part

of the road has been ineffective.

Mr Foxton-McCulloch said

potholes filled with mud have

also been attracting anti-social

behaviour from people driving

through them recklessly.

In Brief

‘RESERVE’ COULD BE SOLD

A 326 sq m plot of land in

Lyttelton, which is owned by

the city council, could be sold to

the public. The unused space at

10 Shakleton Tce currently has

“reserve status” which prevents

the land from being disposed

and sold by the city council.

However, the Banks Peninsula

Community Board has

recommended to the city council

that it revokes the status of the

area. If approved, the public will

be notified of the move and have

a chance to object before it gains

consent from the Minister of

Conservation.

FUNDS FOR PATHWAY

A $15.8 million project to

finish the Coastal Pathway

will be funded as part of

the Government’s “shovelready”

plan to stimulate the

economy and create jobs.

Infrastructure Minister Shane

Jones announced the funding

last week to complete the final

stage around Moncks Bay

between Redcliffs and Shag

Rock. The complete 6.5km

shared pathway will run

from Ferrymead Bridge to

Scarborough. Construction

work is expected to start in six

months. Detailed design and

consenting work will continue

around the Moncks Bay stretch.

Volunteers recognised

DEVOTED: Mike Smith has been named the top surf

lifesaving volunteer in Canterbury.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

• By Jess Gibson

MIKE Smith’s dedication

to saving lives goes beyond

his career as a road safety

specialist.

The Stantec principal

transport engineer has

been patrolling with the

Taylors Mistake Surf Life

Saving Club for more than

20 years and is chairman

of its committee, as well as

vice-president of the national

Surf Life Saving New

Zealand committee.

And now, he has been

named the top regional

volunteer in SLSNZ’s

Canterbury awards of

excellence, which were

announced online over the

weekend.

He was one of a long

list of people from the

Bay Harbour News area

recognised in the regional

awards, which cover clubs

at Nelson, Rarangi, Buller,

Kotuku, Waikuku Beach,

Spencer Park, Waimairi,

North Beach, New

Brighton, South Brighton,

Sumner and Taylors

Mistake.

One of Mr Smith’s

most memorable rescues

included saving Irish tourist

Cormac O’Brennan’s

life when he fell more than

20m from rocks above

Taylors Mistake head first

in January last year.

Mr O’Brennan was taken

to Christchurch Hospital

in a critical condition and

doctors gave him a less

than 10 per cent chance of

survival – but he made a

remarkable recovery.

Another big rescue for

Mr Smith was when a Taylors

Mistake team member

had a cardiac arrest during

a major competition.

“[We had] such a fantastic

team that had an amazing

outcome.”

Mr Smith is no stranger

to victory at the annual

awards – he has won a

range of awards including

official of the year in 2019

and surf life saving club

rescue of the year with his

team of nine in 2018.

for dedication to lifesaving work in the surf

However, he still said the announcement

came as “a bit of a

surprise.”

“There’s just so many people

out there who are deserving of

that.”

Mr Smith said both his sons,

Nick, 30, and Hamish, 27, were

raised with surf lifesaving and he

said it was “a good time” being

involved together.

SLSNZ’s southern regional

manager Stu Bryce said Mr

Smith has been named in recognition

of his involvement at a

club, regional and national level,

particularly in the health and

safety sector.

“Mike’s service to surf is

decades old and it is people like

him who are the backbone of

the sport and the service side of

lifeguarding.”

Taylors Mistake’s Louis Clark

has been named sportsperson

of the year, after he represented

the Junior Black Fins at the

international surf rescue

challenge in Durban, South

Africa, in 2019.

He returned home to compete

at the 2019 New Zealand pool

rescue championships, where he

won the under-19 male 200m

swim with obstacles and placed

third in both the under-19 male

100m rescue medley and 50m

manikin carry.

Back at the beach, Clark won

the under-19 male board rescue

alongside Ben Regan, and

placed second in the under-19

male rescue tube rescue with

Ben, Jacob Clements and Zach

Goldsmith.

Said Mr Bryce: “Louis

excelled in the local and

regional pool and beach events

winning both the open and

under-19 run swim run and

surf races at the southern region

championships.”

Another Taylors Mistake

SLSC volunteer, Luke Smith,

was named lifeguard of the

year.

Record numbers

of bidders

per auction!

Make no mistake, we’re seeing amazing activity among

buyers in our local property market. Well marketed,

well presented properties are attracting huge interest

from well qualified buyers to the point where our

numbers of registered bidders per auction property is

continuing to climb. 3.3 registered bidders is an average

across the country for Ray White but here at Ray White

Ferrymead we’ve had anywhere from 6 to 11 registered

bidders turning up to actively bid on some of our local

properties. Keep in mind, these are buyers who have got

themselves into a position

whereby they can bid on

a cash and unconditional

basis. Unfortunately, only

one can buy it which means in one case 10 people left

the auction with the cash still in their pocket and even

more determined to buy the next one!

Seriously, if you are thinking of selling, now is the time!

Buyers are queuing up at our open homes not wanting

to miss out. Call us today!

Funding woes for water projects

• By Louis Day

MORE THAN $5 million could

be deferred from wastewater,

stormwater and water supply

projects across the Banks

Peninsula over the next 12

months.

This comes as the city council

looks to readjust its priorities in

the face of the Covid-19 crisis

which left it with a $99 million

revenue shortfall.

It has proposed

as part

of its draft

Annual Plan

to defer a total

of $5,791,627

in funds to

water-related

Tori Peden

projects across

the peninsula

for the current financial year.

This includes a deferral of

almost $1.3 million on work towards

the new Okains Bay water

supply, which would leave the

project with no money for the

next 12 months.

Residents and the councilowned

Okains Bay campground

source water from a private

scheme administered by a committee

in the community.

The supply does not meet the

Drinking Water Standards for

New Zealand.

INCONVENIENCE: A readjustment of the city council’s Annual Plan could see a deferral of $1.2

million on work towards the new Okains Bay water supply for the next 12 months.

Banks Peninsula Community

Board chairwoman Tori Peden

thought this posed a health

and safety risk for the Okains

Bay community and the campground

in particular.

“Making sure every camper is

boling their water is difficult and

it is a health and safety risk when

the campground can have up to

500 people in it,” she said.

The city council is also proposing

deferrals to two other

water supply projects on the

peninsula, with $499,340 to the

Lyttelton Rail tunnel pipeline

and $390,000 Libeau Lane

and Chemin Du Nache mains

renewal in Akaroa, which would

leave both projects with nothing

for the financial year.

It would also see $1,076,149

taken away from the Akaroa

Wastewater scheme, leaving the

project with $1,263,783 for the

financial year.

A further $2,526,139 could

also be taken away from the

Lyttelton Brick Barrels renewals

stormwater package, leaving the

project with $750,000.

The city council will consider

reallocating funding towards

any deferred projects when it

addresses its Long Term Plan

next year.

The city council was forced to

reassess its finances following

the effects of the Covid-19 crisis.

Leaving the lost income and

additional costs arising from the

pandemic unaddressed would

have driven a rates increase of

more than 21 per cent for the

current financial year.

The city council is now proposing

an average rates rise of

3.5 per cent after making cuts

to certain areas of its budget. It

is currently processing submissions

made to its draft Annual

Plan before councillors sign off

on a final one by the end of this

month.

Breach to have

minor effect

•From page 1

A city council spokesperson

said it was then identified the

recession plane angle was incorrectly

drawn on plans by Tennent

Brown Architects following a

review of the consent documentation

in October.

“There have been ongoing

discussions between the architect

and the neighbours which didn’t

resolve the

matter. Subsequently,

an

application was

made to alter

the designation.”

“If the application

is

Kim Shannon

declined, there is a right of appeal

to the Environment Court. Alternatively,

the southern part of the

building could be modified.”

Ministry of Education’s head of

education infrastructure service

Kim Shannon said when the

breach was discovered, the main

superstructure of the building

had already been built.

She said the ministry received

expert advice the breach was

likely to have only a minor effect

on the vacant section.

A Tennent Brown Architects

spokesperson said it is not in

a position to comment as the

hearing was ongoing.

STRIKING:

Sumner

resident

Eleanor

Grimshaw

had her

vibrant

pieces on

show at

The Rock

recently.

Evoking positive emotions

aim of art exhibition

VIBRANT artwork on show

in Sumner has been designed

to lift spirits and evoke positive

emotions of viewers.

Sumner artist Eleanor Grimshaw

recently held her first-ever

exhibition at The Rock, Wakefield

Ave, and her paintings will remain

on display until July 20.

The collection is a colourful

mix of watercolour and acrylic,

some with pen and wash over the

top, with flowers being the central

theme.

The Rock, a not-for-profit community

organisation in Sumner,

asked Grimshaw to do an exhibition

in February after seeing her

Instagram art page and it was

meant to be held in April.

But plans were put on hold

when the country went into alert

level 4 lockdown and Grimshaw,

who is known for her photorealistic

portraits, used the time

to explore a different art-form.

“I thought if I’m going to be

doing an exhibition where people

might potentially buy this stuff

it would be nice for them to have

some colourful cheery art, that

when they look at it, it makes them

feel in a positive way rather than

that serious photo-realistic stuff.

Grimshaw was first inspired to

switch up her style when she was

house hunting in the area with

her sister earlier in the year and

fell in love with the homes which

had colourful stand-out art.

“Without being corny I think

having a bit of happy stuff to look

at around the home is probably

quite nice in case we get stuck in

our houses again.”

More than 80 guests attended

Grimshaw’s exhibition and

she sold more than half of her

paintings, making about $2500.

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust, a nonprofit

organisation formed in 2002 to protect one of New Zealand’s most important

coastal wetlands. Each week she introduces a new bird found in the estuary. Her

column aims to raise the understanding of the values and uniqueness of the area.

Gull in declining numbers

THE RED-billed gull/tarapunga

is commonly seen anywhere

around the estuary, along the

rivers and even in the city –

particularly when you are trying

to enjoy your fish and chips on

one of the many car parks with

a spectacular view over the

estuary.

But this once common gull is

not so common anymore … it is

now on the list with a classification

of at risk and declining.

Only five years ago it was

normal to count 8000 and more

around the estuary alone but

numbers have been declining to

just more than 4000 today. The

well-known, well studied and

one of the largest red-billed gull

colonies in New Zealand near

Kaikoura has seen a drop of 49

per cent in the population.

So, what is going on? Firstly,

cats, rats and stoats are stealing

eggs and chicks, which are easy

prey when the red billed-gulls

nest on the ground. Secondly,

due to climate-induced weather

changes and water temperatures

the krill population is declining.

Krill is the main food supply for

these gulls and this is no longer

always available to them. Some

of you may remember the ‘rafts

DECLINE: The red-billed gull is now listed as at risk.

PHOTO: PAUL CORLISS

of red krill floating on the surface’

in and around the estuary.

This sight has indeed been less

common.

Gulls will also eat small fish,

insects, worms as well as any

human scrap found near rubbish

bins and landfills or bread fed by

many locals.

However, this is the third

cause of their demise as processed

food is detrimental to any

bird, resulting adults to produce

weak chicks making them

vulnerable to harsh weather and

predators, as well as shortening

their lifespan.

How can we help prevent

losing not only our red-billed

gulls but also other bird species?

Control near your home. Place a

collar and bell on your cat so the

birds at least have some warning

while nesting but preferably

keep your cat indoors during the

night.

[Edition datE]

Compact venue faces

tough competition

QUITE SIMPLY, I don’t

understand how it works,

two companies under the

one umbrella selling similar

models.

I’m talking about Hyundai

and Kia, both of which have

released the Venue and

Seltos respectively, small

sport utility vehicles that

have just landed in the New

Zealand market.

I’m a big believer in

shared product development

and componentry, it makes

for cost savings which

then trickle down to the

customer, but these two

models compete in a tight

market where choices will

be made solely on cost and

value.

Regular readers may recall

my Kia Seltos evaluation in

late March. The car in this

review is Hyundai’s Venue,

and while both share the

same floorpan and many

similarities,there are plenty

of differing features such

as exterior design and

drivelines.

The Venue also has a

shorter wheelbase than

the Seltos, and measures

just 4m against the Seltos

at 4.3m. But therein lies a

bit of a trick, for those who

definitely want, or need, a

small SUV then the Venue is

the pick.

It fits into a market where

the buyer will benefit from

the easy access up front and

tall seat height, it’s great for

those in my generation who

are advancing in years. If

you don’t have young ones

in tow or seldom have rear

seat passengers and like the

manoeuvrability short cars

offer, then the Venue has

advantages.

It also has a more

traditional driveline, its

1.6-litre engine is paired

to a six-speed automatic

gearbox, as opposed to

the continuously variable

transmission in the Seltos.

And if you are already

thinking that the Venue’s

1591cc engine wouldn’t

compete against its

stablemate’s 2-litre unit,

then think again. Hyundai

rate the Venue at 90kW and

151Nm, and although both

outputs are realised tall in

the rev band at 6300rpm

and 4850rpm respectively,

the engine doesn’t work

overly hard.

HYUNDAI VENUE ELITE: Short-wheelbase

translates to manoeuvrability.

That’s because at just

over 1100kg, the Venue in

total is a lightweight, and

that doesn’t ask much from

under the bonnet.

This engine is used widely

across the Hyundai/Kia

range, in turbo and nonturbo

form, it is a sweet

unit that delivers smoothly

and quietly. The naturally

aspirated unit in the Venue

is responsive and fills the

close gaps between gears

easily.

• Price – Hyundai

Venue Elite, $31,990

• Dimensions –

Length, 4040mm;

width, 1770mm;

height, 1592mm

• Configuration –

Four-cylinder, frontwheel-drive,

1591cc,

90kW, 151Nm, sixspeed

automatic.

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 11sec

• Fuel usage –

7.2l/100km

In terms of performance,

the Venue will reach

100km/h from a standstill in

11sec. It isn’t a fast car, but

then again the market it is

destined for doesn’t require

speed, it is capable amidst

the hurly burly of today’s

traffic, and that is all that

would be requested from it.

Hyundai claims a

combined cycle average fuel

usage figure of 7.2-litres per

100km. That fits well with

the consumption gauge in

STYLISH: The Hyundai Venue is characterised

by a short, squat rear quarter.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

the test car, it was showing

8.4l/100km when I returned

it to the dealership.

In Elite form the Venue

rides on 205/55 x 17in

Nexen tyres, that is quite a

sizeable amount of rubber

for a small car, but the

benefit is the grip that

can be gleaned and the

associated ride benefits.

The Venue gets a torsion

beam rear suspension; put

simply, each wheel is not

independent from the other,

there’s an axle tying them

together which doesn’t allow

as much freedom as there

would be otherwise.

That’s fine, so long as the

spring and damper rates

have been well chosen;

thankfully, Hyundai have

done a lot of development

work for Australasian

roads and the Venue has a

comfortable, absorbent ride

with tidy handling manners.

At almost 1.6m, you would

expect some gravitational

effect, but it is arrested well,

body movement over the

suspension won’t lurch

occupants.

In Elite form the Venue

has enough wizardry to

keep buyers happy. Major

items of fitment include

part leather trim, keyless

entry and ignition, central

screen touch display, Apple

Car Play and Android

Auto capability and heated

steering wheel, the latter

ideal for those frosty

Canterbury mornings.

If you don’t need all the

bells and whistles of the

Elite, the Venue also lands

here in entry-level form, it

doesn’t miss out on much

and will still give plenty

of satisfaction within the

buying experience.

The Venue lands at a

special launch price. It lists at

$27,990 for a limited time. It

will go up to $29,990 at any

given point, and you’d need

to add $4k for Elite trim.

That doesn’t quite meet

the keen price of Kia Seltos,

but it is close and with the

Venue’s extra goodies I guess

buyer choice will come

down to whatever feels right

on the day of purchase.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Upskilling

transforms

careers

Do you ever look at your boss and think

“I could do that job better”? Or wonder

what it would take to get a promotion? If

you’re seeking to advance your career, now

could be the perfect time to ‘sharpen your

tools’.

Ara Institute of Canterbury has decades of

experience in helping people to upskill and

move ahead in their chosen field. It offers

area-specific professional development,

for example in nursing and IT, and short

courses in subjects that can benefit anyone,

like everyday computing, leadership and

health and safety.

Ara also has more advanced upskilling

opportunities like diplomas and graduate

diplomas that can be studied part-time

while you’re working. This option worked

well for Caleb McGrail when he was a

carpentry apprentice.

“I wanted to progress my career within

the industry,” Caleb explains. “I chose a

diploma in construction management at

Ara because it was a locally based course

that I could study part-time while I worked,

and because it met my educational needs.”

Caleb says the diploma course enabled

him to see beyond his role as a carpenter

and how it integrates with other roles in the

industry. He’s now a leading hand carpenter,

working on new builds, refurbishments

and fit-out projects. He says his upskilling

experience enabled him to progress with

his employer Brosnan Construction and

he’s enjoying being able to use his new

knowledge to benefit his role.

Ara’s short upskilling courses can reap

rewards too, as Thomas King discovered.

A co-director of a logistics business, he

realised he needed to embrace technology

rather than fear it.

“The world is rapidly changing and

having some confidence and competence

in computing is crucial,” he says. Thomas

took his first steps at Ara Connect, which

offers free, non-assessed computing courses

for anyone wanting to gain skills and

confidence using digital technology.

“I fell in love with collaboration tools

which can help me complete a host of

project management tasks. Knowing how to

use computers in a way that delivers results

makes life so much easier, especially in

business. I certainly wish I’d taken courses

like these years ago.”

Memoir of a political survivor

by Judith Collins

The most anticipated political memoir of the year.

A frank account from National MP Judith Collins of the highs and lows of

a political life. From her humble beginnings as the youngest daughter of

Labour-voting farming parents, Judith Collins has carved a path to almost

the very top of New Zealand politics. Collins grew up in rural Walton,

Waikato, on a dairy farm. At the age of 10 she entered politics, running

for class president. She won.

After a successful career as a lawyer, Collins became the MP for Papakura

in 2002, alongside fellow new recruit John Key. When Key and National

won office in 2008, Collins became the Minister for Police, Corrections

and Veterans. Funny, forthright and fearless, Collins reveals what it is like

to survive-and thrive-for two decades as a senior female politician

Merchant, Miner, Mandarin

the life and times of the remarkable Choie sew hoy

one of dunedin’s most prominent entrepreneurs.

by Jenny sew hoy agnew and trevor Gordon agnew

In 1869, a businessman from China’s Guangdong Province first set foot

on New Zealand soil at Port Chalmers. It was the beginning of an illustrious

career that would change the shape of commerce and industry in Otago

and Southland. ‘Merchant, Miner, Mandarin’ depicts the fascinating life of

Choie Sew Hoy – from his early days in China before emigrating to

Australia and then NZ, to his death in 1901 as one of Dunedin’s most

prominent entrepreneurs. Richly illustrated and deeply researched,

‘Merchant, Miner, Mandarin’ is both the compelling biography of one of the

most distinguished figures of New Zealand business and an

intriguing account of late 19th-century society, industry and race relations.

Weed

a new Zealand story

by James Borrowdale

A fascinating journey through the life and times of cannabis in New

Zealand. Pot, Mary Jane, dope, skunk, grass, hash, green, hooch, herb,

ganja, reefer. New Zealand loves weed. It’s the most popular illegal drug

in our country and third most popular drug overall, behind alcohol and

tobacco, yet it also represents a troubled relationship. In Weed, awardwinning

journalist James Borrowdale dives in deep to understand that

relationship, meeting a fascinating cross-section of New Zealand along

the way – a nineteenth-century nun who allegedly grew pot, a bystander

to the Mr Asia syndicate, a convicted heroin dealer turned criminologist,

people both using and offering the drug for medicinal relief, politicians

and law-makers old and new. Fusing insightful, personal stories with

analysis and historical research, Weed lays out the facts as they are –

about an issue that can no longer be ignored.

Not That I’d Kiss a Girl

by lil o’Brien

Lil O’Brien accidentally outed herself to her parents at the age of nineteen

when they overheard her talking to a friend about liking girls. Half an hour

later she found herself on the side of the road, with instructions to come

back and pick up her suitcase the next day. What follows is a heartbreaking

yet hugely funny story of a young Kiwi girl - the deputy head girl from a

posh private school - coming to grips with her sexuality in the face of stark

disapproval from her parents. Bit by bit, Lil finds the inner strength to pull

herself into an entirely new world. Along the way she’s called out for looking

too straight in a gay bar, tries to break in to the lesbian in-crowd and figures

out how to send her internet lover back to America…and explores how the

hell to have sex with a girl and dates four women at once - unsuccessfully.

Lil’s story is an insightful and honest look at how you figure out whether

you’re gay, bi or whatever - and deal with what comes next.
