Hanmer plan change gets nod<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

A12.97 hectare block of land<br />

on the east side of Argelins<br />

Road in Hanmer Springs<br />

could soon be opened up to<br />

houses, aretirement village<br />

and preschool.<br />

Morford Properties has<br />

successfully applied for a<br />

plan change to allow the land<br />

to be included within the<br />

town’s boundary and be<br />

rezoned from rural to<br />

residential 1H.<br />

The plan change was<br />

publicly notified in<br />

September last year,<br />

attracting eight submissions.<br />

Ahearing for the privately<br />

requested plan change was<br />

held on March 20 this year<br />

before independent<br />

commissioner Dean Chrystal,<br />

Hurunui Mayor Marie Black<br />

and Cr Geoff Shier.<br />

The hearing panel<br />

recommended approving it<br />

with afew adjustments, and<br />

its recommendations were<br />

approved by the Hurunui<br />

District Council last week.<br />

The site proposal includes<br />

provision for up to 90<br />

residential lots, mostly<br />

around 500 square metres,<br />

with larger lots along the<br />

western boundary.<br />

Aretirement village of<br />

eight townhouses, 22 villas,<br />

20 serviced apartments and<br />

20 care beds is also planned.<br />

Submitters raised issues of<br />

loss of the rural, open<br />

outlook, density, the<br />

geotechnical risk, the risk of<br />

flooding, property<br />

devaluation, landscaping and<br />

storm and wastewater<br />

management.<br />

Some were also concerned<br />

the Pitch NPutt golf facility<br />

could be lost to the<br />

development.<br />

However, council planner<br />

Kelsey Bewley, in areport on<br />

the plan change, said the<br />

Pitch NPutt issue was a<br />

private one, not aresource<br />

management issue.<br />

‘‘Therefore the loss of the<br />

Pitch NPutt cannot be<br />

considered as part of the plan<br />

change assessment.’’<br />

Amberley house wins architecture award<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

An Amberley house has taken out a<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> Architecture Award.<br />

Twenty­five projects received<br />

honours in the just­announced <strong>2020</strong><br />

awards.<br />

The Hursley Terrace home,<br />

designed by AW Architect, was one of<br />

two homes to win in the Housing<br />

section.<br />

The jury said that, despite the use of<br />

prefabricated and modular<br />

construction elements, the building<br />

felt anything but ‘‘off­the­shelf’’.<br />

‘‘It is asimple, well­considered<br />

house that provides anew model for<br />

living more sympathetically within our<br />

Awell­considered house ... The winning dwelling on Hursley Terrace, near<br />

Amberley.<br />

grand landscapes,’’ the jury said.<br />

Youth hit badly by<br />

Covid-19 job losses<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Youngpeople are being<br />

disproportionately affected by Covid­19<br />

job losses.<br />

How to engage young peopleinthe<br />

recoverywas just one of the questions<br />

askedatthe Waimakariri Jobs Summit<br />

held at the Rangiora RSAonFriday,<br />

organised by Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey<br />

and Dean Percy, managingdirectorof<br />

creative agency The Mark.<br />

Whilenational scenarios predict<br />

unemploymentcould hit 9percent,youth<br />

unemployment‘‘could trackashigh as<br />

25%’’, Mr Doocey warned.<br />

‘‘We are already seeingyoung people<br />

disproportionately affected,’’ Enterprise<br />

<strong>North</strong><strong>Canterbury</strong> business development<br />

manager Miles Daltonagreed.<br />

Workshopparticipants wondered if<br />

therewere opportunities for ‘‘tech<br />

apprenticeships’’ to engage youngpeople,<br />

whileconcerns were expressed at the time<br />

and expense involved with on­the­job<br />

training, especially in uncertain times.<br />

Deputy Mayor Neville Atkinson, who<br />

runs the Kaiapoi Community Care and<br />

Employment Trust, says socialenterprises<br />

and not­for­profit organisations can play a<br />

valuable roleinworking alongsidefirms to<br />

‘‘produce work­readypeople’’.<br />

Keynote speaker, National MP and<br />

former merchantbankerAndrewBayly,<br />

said he initially thoughtCovid­19 ‘‘would<br />

be a12to18­monthscenario’’.<br />

‘‘I’ve got to sayinthe last couple of days<br />

I’ve actually changed my mind. I’ve<br />

become alot gloomier.’’<br />

Developments globally tended to<br />

indicate Covid­19 could lead to afour to<br />

five­year recession and it could be longer,<br />

Mr Baylysaid. But New Zealand was in a<br />

good positioncompared to other countries<br />

because of its relatively low debt levels of<br />

20% of grossdomestic product, whichwas<br />

set to doubleinjust threemonths and<br />

doubleagaininthe next four years.<br />

By comparison the UnitedStates’ debt<br />

level was 107% of GDP beforeCovid­19,<br />

while European countriesaveraged67%.<br />

‘‘The wagesubsidy has got us through<br />

the lockdown, but when that comes off<br />

there will be some difficulties and Ithink<br />

we will see somebusinesses failing.’’<br />

Agriculture wasplaying avital rolein<br />

keeping New Zealand working,but more<br />

neededtobedone to help recovery, Mr<br />

Bayly said.‘‘We needtodothe large­scale<br />

infrastructure projects, but we need to do<br />

large­scale integrated developments, for<br />

example house­building,becausethat’s<br />

what employs people.<br />

‘‘We need to welcome international<br />

students, but they willhave to stay here.<br />

They won’t be able to flitback and forth.<br />

And we needthe technologytoenable<br />

more people to work from home.Ithink we<br />

should be thinking thatthis willgoon<br />

longerthan we planned at the outset.’’<br />

New Zealand has already reached‘‘peak<br />

cow’’,but therewere opportunities in<br />

other producesuch as avocadosand<br />

kiwifruit,and the red meat sector is more<br />

profitable thanithas been in years.<br />

Mr Baylysaidhewas impressed with the<br />

optimismshown by Waimakariri<br />

businesses.<br />

Mr Doocey said aresearcher had been<br />

engaged to contact businessesfor<br />

interviewsand he planstoengage with<br />

local youth to get ayouth perspective.<br />

Findings willbeshared withthe local<br />

business sector, he said.<br />

Strengthening required ... The Waimakariri District Council’s Rangiora service centre<br />

is undergoing an upgrade.<br />

Upgrade now more pressing<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Planstorefurbish Rangiora’smain<br />

council building have taken on greater<br />

urgency after an engineering<br />

assessment.<br />

Apreliminary scopeofwork<br />

assessment suggests partsofthe<br />

Rangiora service centremay meet only<br />

40 percent of the new building standard.<br />

“The building’s ratingislower than<br />

previously believeddue to achange in<br />

an engineeringassessmentofthe<br />

ductile strength of the steelmesh<br />

reinforcing in the concrete floor in part<br />

of the building upstairs,”Waimakariri<br />

District Council chief executiveJim<br />

Palmer says. It had previously been<br />

thought the building met 67% of the<br />

standard,ormore.<br />

“Based on the information we have to<br />

date,strengthening work is required to<br />

reduce therisk of apartial collapseof<br />

the floor in the event of alarge<br />

earthquake.’’<br />

As aprecaution, adecision has been<br />

madetotemporarily limit staff and<br />

public access to affected parts.<br />

All services and functions will<br />

continue to operate as closetonormalas<br />

possible, with the public still ableto<br />

access public areas while thecouncil<br />

awaitsamore detailed report.<br />

An upgrade hasbeen in the pipeline<br />

for some time,with plans scaled back as<br />

the council sought savings becauseof<br />

Covid­19, with the spend now expected<br />

to be 30% of the original budget.<br />

Strategy and engagement manager<br />

Simon Markham says planned work will<br />

include upgrading theheating and<br />

ventilation. ‘‘Itwon’trequire us to be<br />

entirely out of the building, but there<br />

willbedisruption.’’<br />

The council will continue to employ<br />

flexibleworking arrangements for staff.<br />

Further work on the Rangiora service<br />

centre will be considered in next year’s<br />

LongTerm Plan,with aRangiora<br />

with the device was at the<br />

checkout because her shop had<br />

already been tallied and she<br />

packed it in her trolley as she<br />

shopped.<br />

All she had to do was pay.<br />

Meanwhile, Barry had to<br />

wheel through acheckout, put<br />

his groceries on the counter to<br />

be scanned, and then pack<br />

them.<br />

Their efforts earned each of<br />

them a$200 PAK’nSAVE<br />

voucher, while many others will<br />

also benefit from their efforts.<br />

Owner­operators James and<br />

Catherine Flanagan gifted the<br />

competition groceries to food<br />

banks.<br />

People involved in anew<br />

collaborative approach to<br />

ensure enough food is getting to<br />

food banks were on­hand to<br />

accept the groceries.<br />

Tessa Sturley, community<br />

team manager at the<br />

Waimakariri District Council,<br />

says the collaborative approach<br />

was born out of the Covid­19<br />

lockdown to ensure asupply of<br />

food was available to those in<br />

the community who needed it.<br />

It is led by Nicki Carter,<br />

social services Waimakariri<br />

facilitator, and Rachel<br />

Thornton, the community<br />

development facilitator for the<br />

council.<br />

Mr Flanagan says the<br />

SHOP’nGO device went live on<br />

Monday this week, and was<br />

already proving popular, with<br />

many registering to use it for<br />

their grocery shop.<br />

Common sense needed<br />

over fresh water policy<br />

By CAM HENDERSON, president of<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> Federated Farmers<br />

Everyonewantsimprovements to the<br />

quality of water in ourstreams, rivers<br />

and lakes.However, thetrouble is<br />

there is disagreementabout how to<br />

achieve it, howfast it needsto happen,<br />

and at what cost.<br />

Federated Farmers is encouraged<br />

by signs of growing recognition that<br />

targetedaction on issues particular to<br />

differentcatchments will be far more<br />

effectiveinterms of cost and results<br />

thanblunt,blanket regulations.<br />

When the Government first released<br />

its EssentialFreshwater proposals last<br />

year, there wasanoutcrynot justfrom<br />

farmers, but alsomany othersector<br />

groups, including thelocalauthorities<br />

thatwould havetoadministerand<br />

enforce the regulations.<br />

Theproposals were tochange.<br />

Maybeitwas the 17,000submissions,<br />

maybeit was thefact there isan<br />

electionthisyear, or —and Ilike to<br />

think this wasthe deciding factor —<br />

maybecommon senseprevailed.<br />

Whatever the case,the resultisthe<br />

Actionfor Healthy Waterways reforms<br />

signedoff by CabinetonMay 28 are<br />

more reasonable and practical.<br />

Forexample, Federated Farmers<br />

agreeswith the push for Farm<br />

EnvironmentPlanstobe rolled out<br />

overareasonable timeframe. We are<br />

alsopleasedthatwaterway fencing<br />

distancerequirements arenow 3m,<br />

not 5m,and that existing fencing<br />

was very disillusioned.<br />

The predominant experience now<br />

when walking around the city’s<br />

beautiful parks and beachesis<br />

spaced­out peopleand the<br />

ubiquitous smell of weedwafting<br />

throughthe air.<br />

My family and friends in<br />

Vancouver agree it was one of the<br />

worst things that has happened to<br />

Vancouver.<br />

Iactually could not wait to get back<br />

to New Zealand.<br />

Even the liberal Dutch are now<br />

This investment willenable the<br />

trust to employ ateam of regional coordinatorstoworkwith<br />

the farming<br />

community on integratingsustainable<br />

Farmer and community­led<br />

and topography,have proven to be<br />

veryeffective.<br />

improvement in rural water quality.<br />

New Zealand has the advantageof<br />

beingable to weigh up the<br />

experiences of other places.<br />

Why share their failed<br />

experiments?<br />

Do peopleregretnow reducingthe<br />

drinking age to 18? Yes. Will we<br />

change it? No.<br />

Come on New Zealanders, you can<br />

Project under way ... An artist’s impression of the six­metre high canopy which will<br />

redirect falling rocks away from the road and road users.<br />

Rock project begins<br />

Work to install permanent rockfall<br />

protection on State Highway 1<br />

between Peketa and the Parititahi<br />

tunnels, south of Kaikoura, began last<br />

Monday.<br />

The work is expected to be<br />

completed by Christmas.<br />

It will cause delays for motorists of<br />

up to 35 minutes on weekdays between<br />

9am and 5pm during the first month of<br />

work.<br />

Kaikoura Mayor Craig Mackle says it<br />

will be great to get the work done.<br />

‘‘There will be considerable<br />

disturbance but it is avery small price<br />

to pay for the outcome.’’<br />

In April last year amotorist was<br />

lucky to escape serious injury when<br />

four large rocks fell on his vehicle<br />

from the rock face near the tunnels.<br />

Other rock­protection measures<br />

have already been installed in the<br />

area, including adraped mesh fence<br />

and barriers.<br />

Recovery push in Kaikoura<br />

The Kaikoura District Council has joined<br />

forces with Te Runanga oKaikoura to<br />

lead the district’s Covid­19 recovery.<br />

MayorCraig Mackle says the<br />

partnership has beenevolving since<br />

October,asthe councillooked to the<br />

future as part of its ongoingearthquake<br />

recoveryefforts.<br />

The partnership is known as the<br />

KaikouraEconomicRecovery<br />

GovernanceGroup (KERGG).<br />

‘‘It’s about honouring our treaty<br />

partnership and it has beendeveloping<br />

rapidly sinceOctober, so it seemedonly<br />

natural to evolve into aCovid­19 recovery<br />

IMAGE: SUPPLIED<br />

Colin Knaggs, the <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

Transport Infrastructure Recovery<br />

(NCTIR) alliance manager, said:<br />

‘‘With more than 70 recorded rockfall<br />

incidents in the area since the 2016<br />

earthquake, apermanent solution is<br />

needed to protect road users now and<br />

in the future.”<br />

The canopy design will use rock<br />

protection netting made of hightensile<br />

galvanised steel to allow light<br />

through. It is the first of its kind to be<br />

installed in the southern hemisphere.<br />

‘‘It was chosen in preference to<br />

other ways of protecting road users,<br />

for example, atunnel, which would<br />

have cut off the sea views,’’ he says.<br />

The canopy was designed by NCTIR<br />

staff in consultation with European<br />

designers.<br />

The first stage of the work will<br />

include rock scaling and milling the<br />

Cone sales help charity<br />

By ROBYN BRISTOW<br />

Seven­year­old best friends<br />

Scarlet Morgan and Indie<br />

Stevens have become two of the<br />

youngest contributors to Kaiapoi<br />

Community Support’s food bank.<br />

The Year 3students from St<br />

Patrick’s School, Kaiapoi,<br />

collected pine cones and sold<br />

them at their front gates.<br />

Selling 15 bags in all, Scarlet<br />

and Indie used the cash to buy<br />

items to give to the food bank.<br />

The idea came about through a<br />

school project called The Trinity<br />

Quest.<br />

Students perform challenges<br />

during the school year relating to<br />

giving, community, academic<br />

excellence, the arts and physical<br />

activity, with themes associated<br />

with caring, co­operation and<br />

helping others.<br />

When the girls delivered the<br />

food to Kaiapoi Community<br />

Support, they were given atour<br />

of the food bank by its coordinator,<br />

Louise Griffiths, and<br />

helped unload the goods into the<br />

pantry.<br />

“The best part was choosing<br />

yummy stuff,” Indie told Louise.<br />

The food bank is one of the free<br />

community services run by the<br />

Spending across region<br />

gets post-Covid bump<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> retailers are<br />

riding awave of post­lockdown<br />

spending.<br />

Figures released by the<br />

Ministry of Business<br />

Innovation and Employment<br />

(MBIE) shows, in the first four<br />

weeks after lockdown, retail<br />

spending in Kaikoura was 15.1<br />

percent ahead of the same time<br />

last year.<br />

The retail spend was up 5%<br />

in Waimakariri and 3% in<br />

Hurunui.<br />

Kaikoura Mayor Craig<br />

Mackle said the boost was<br />

largely driven by weekend<br />

visitors. ‘‘It’s been going pretty<br />

well actually. Even last weekend<br />

was busy. It’s definitely up<br />

at the moment and most people<br />

are pretty happy.<br />

‘‘It’s surprisingly busy for<br />

this time of year and long may<br />

it continue.’’<br />

The boom in New Zealand’s<br />

provincial towns is in stark<br />

contrast to the cities, with<br />

Christchurch just 1.1% ahead<br />

of last year, while Auckland<br />

and Wellington are among the<br />

four districts where retail<br />

spending is down, as many<br />

commuters continue to work<br />

from home, the ministry says.<br />

Waimakariri District Council<br />

strategy and engagement<br />

manager Simon Markham<br />

believes the growth in retail<br />

spending can be attributed to<br />

several things, including locals<br />

working from home instead of<br />

commuting into Christchurch,<br />

money saved during the<br />

lockdown, anew impetus on<br />

shopping local, and shoppers<br />

wanting to avoid the malls.<br />

The Covid­19 experience<br />

could provide solutions as<br />

councils and businesses look to<br />

be more sustainable in tackling<br />

climate change, he says.<br />

‘‘Post­Covid, we are seeing<br />

life patterns change, with more<br />

people working from home,<br />

which has wider benefits for<br />

our district with more people<br />

being local during the day, so<br />

they are spending money in<br />

their town centre rather than<br />

where they would be working.<br />

‘‘There could be environmental<br />

benefits as well as<br />

economic benefits from people<br />

working from home or having<br />

more flexible start times and<br />

work hours, which would also<br />

reduce traffic congestion.’’<br />

The council has been<br />

working on developing a<br />

sustainability strategy, with a<br />

report due to be presented to<br />

this week’s council meeting.<br />

While Covid­19 has delayed<br />

the development of the<br />

strategy, it has also shown what<br />

is possible, Mr Markham says.<br />

The report will review the<br />

council’s vehicle fleet, waste<br />

treatment plant and energy<br />

savings with aview to ‘‘doing<br />

that smarter’’.<br />

Waimakariri set<br />

to bounce back<br />

By DAVID HILL<br />

Waimakariri is well­placed to<br />

bounce back from Covid­19, says<br />

Enterprise <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> (ENC)<br />

business development manager<br />

MilesDalton.<br />

Speaking at last week’s<br />

Waimakariri Jobs Summit, Mr<br />

Dalton said ENC was working to get<br />

24 ‘‘exciting projects’’ off theground,<br />

and abetter­than­expected business<br />

opinion survey has given the region<br />

reason for optimism.<br />

‘‘It’s bad, but notasbad as we<br />

thought,’’ he said,after the recent<br />

<strong>North</strong><strong>Canterbury</strong> Business Opinion<br />

Survey.<br />

‘‘We’ve takenaknock, but we are<br />

better placed than most other parts<br />

of the country. We’ve been through<br />

four disasters now —threeearthquakes<br />

and now aplague —and we<br />

come into our own whenbad things<br />

happen.’’<br />

ENC has received two months<br />

worthofenquiries in just twoweeks<br />

from prospective new businesses.<br />

‘‘We havehad quite alot of people<br />

coming in withsome really good<br />

projects whichthey have obviously<br />

put alot of thought into.<br />

‘‘We are awareof19new<br />

businesses starting up in <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> sinceMarchand we’ve<br />

had 17 interviews with prospective<br />

new businesses.’’<br />

The business survey found93<br />

percent of businesses had areduced<br />

income duringlockdown, with 55%<br />

having areducedprofitfor the last<br />

six months,but 20% had higher<br />

profits. ‘‘We are seeingthat jump<br />

now thatlockdown has finished and<br />

retail and hospitality seemtobe<br />

pretty busy right now. As to how long<br />

thatwill last, that’sanotherquestion.<br />

‘‘Onthe whole, businessesare<br />

hanging in there.Everyonetook abig<br />

hit from the lockdown and many had<br />

to take out loans,but mostbusinesses<br />

are prettyoptimistic about surviving.<br />

‘‘The weakness of Waimakariri has<br />

suddenlybecome our strength in that<br />

we weren’t reliant on international<br />

tourismand we are seen as asafe<br />

haven. We’vebeen approached by<br />

international investors looking at<br />

setting up some fairly substantial<br />

operations.’’<br />

Large projects includedLime<br />

chocolate factory, various hemp<br />

projects, manuka oil and the<br />

proposed star trail, Mr Daltonsays.<br />

‘‘One of the things I’ve often<br />

thought is that New Zealand needsto<br />

diversify away from peak cow, and<br />

hempand cannabis are coming in as<br />

an option.<br />

‘‘Hemp for food andfibre and<br />

medicinal cannabis are very strong<br />

and thesepeople have their overseas<br />

markets already locked in.<br />

‘‘And we’re stillworking towards<br />

the observatory and star trail,’’ he<br />

Artistic endeavour ... Laura Hewetson, left, and Mel Eaton shared avision for an arts collective in <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>.<br />

Shared vision leads to arts collective<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

Two <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> women<br />

have established anew arts<br />

collective.<br />

It is the brainchild of<br />

Waipara’s Laura Hewetson and<br />

Mel Eaton, of Woodend.<br />

The idea arose when Laura<br />

and her family moved from<br />

Wellington to <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

almost two years ago.<br />

She put apost up on a<strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> mums’ Facebook<br />

group asking if anyone was<br />

interested in running art classes<br />

or having alittle art group.<br />

Mel contacted her saying she<br />

had wanted to do asimilar thing,<br />

so they met for acoffee and<br />

shared their vision and passion<br />

for creative communities.<br />

Mel had established asimilar<br />

initiative in Qatar called<br />

‘‘Inspiration Station’’ and, as an<br />

experienced art teacher, she<br />

had the know­how to create an<br />

arts collective, while Laura’s<br />

background as an artist working<br />

at aperforming­arts centre in<br />

Wellington provided complementary<br />

skills for the initiative.<br />

Since that first meeting, the<br />

women have been sharing their<br />

vision with other local creatives,<br />

and the collective began to<br />

slowly form.<br />

Laura and Mel are in the<br />

process of transforming NEST<br />

into an incorporated society<br />

with charitable status and<br />

earlier this year the women<br />

were given agrant through<br />

Hurunui Creative Communities<br />

to put on an event in Amberley<br />

to ‘‘launch and introduce’’ the<br />

collective to <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>.<br />

The Covid­19 pandemic<br />

PHOTOS: SUPPLIED<br />

lockdown ‘‘put the brakes on<br />

that, but as soon as we hit level<br />

one it was pedal to the metal’’.<br />

The collective’s first<br />

exhibition and workshop is<br />

scheduled to begin this<br />

Saturday, running until <strong>July</strong> 26<br />

at 16 Markham Street,<br />

Amberley, from 10am until 3pm.<br />

‘‘We have been blown away by<br />

the incredible artists in the<br />

region who have joined with us<br />

and are showcasing their work<br />

and running workshops,’’ the<br />

women say. About 20 artists are<br />

involved in the event.<br />

Dog fee<br />

incentive<br />

Being aresponsible dog<br />

owner in the Hurunui<br />

District will mean cheaper<br />

registration for owners.<br />

Registrations are due<br />

with afinal payment date<br />

of August 1.<br />

Those whose dogs meet<br />

certain criteria will find it<br />

cheaper.<br />

Dogs who have never<br />

roamed, are microchipped<br />

and whose owners have<br />

always paid the<br />

registration fee on time<br />

qualify for areduced fee of<br />

$33. The standard fee is<br />

$47 ayear.<br />

Records show about<br />

1000 dog owners may meet<br />

the Responsible Dog<br />

Owner criteria.<br />

Compliance team leader<br />

Andrew Brown says the<br />

category is in the best<br />

interests of owners, their<br />

dogs, and the district.<br />

“People who meet all of<br />

the responsible dog owner<br />

criteria are not only acting<br />

in the best interests of<br />

dogs, but also generally<br />

require less time and<br />

resource from the<br />

council.”<br />

He says it backs up the<br />

Department of Internal<br />

Affairs’ message that<br />

safety around dogs is a<br />

combination of good law,<br />

good enforcement,<br />

compliance by dog owners<br />

and community support.<br />

Before making the final decisiononwhat<br />

type of fenceistobeinstalled, consider the<br />

following:<br />

1. Capitalcosts.<br />

2. The labour cost to build.<br />

3. Maintenance costs.<br />

4. Stockholding ability. The fence should<br />

be suitable for the stock it is to hold.Also,<br />

considerwhat stock neighbours have when<br />

constructing aboundary fence.<br />

5. Required service lifeofthe fence.<br />

Thereisno use buying materialsthatare<br />

unlikelytogive the lifespan you require.<br />

6. Flood or fire risk. There’s no use having<br />

abattened fence in aflood­prone area.<br />

7. Risks of soil slips or movements.<br />

8. Climaterisk (e.g. coastal erosion).<br />

9. Availability and skill of labour.<br />

10. Availabilityofmaterials.<br />

Afterall these considerations, you<br />

should have adesign in mind that will<br />

achieve the animal containment required,<br />

suit the terrain, yourfarmingsystem,and<br />

your budget, and it will last.<br />

Wheretobuild<br />

When deciding on placement, consider<br />

the following:<br />

1. Boundaries: Check the accurate<br />

location of boundaries before erecting the<br />

fence. Discuss plans with your neighbour.<br />

2. Class of land: Where possible, fences<br />

can be used to separate one class of land<br />

from another, whether it be different soil<br />

types, or aspect (sunny, shady, etc).<br />

3. Easeofaccess: Afence line that can be<br />

bulldozedwill cut transport and erection<br />

costs, butmay leadtoerosion problems.<br />

4. Avoid problem areas:Thesecan lead to<br />

extramaterials and maintenance. Soft<br />

soilsare troublesome for fence end<br />

assemblies,cornersorangles. Rock can<br />

make post installation very difficult.<br />

Unstable streams maymeander and cut off<br />

or underminefences.<br />

With slopes,fencingstraightupand<br />

down aslope will suffer less from snow<br />

and boulders. If aslope must be crossed,<br />

look for old terraces or achange of slope<br />

whichmay breakthe slide of snow.<br />

Gullies susceptible to floodswill require<br />

acollapsible portionoffloodgates.<br />

5. Avoid unnecessary dips or bends.<br />

Nearly everydip will require atiedownor<br />

foot.Likewise, bends will require bigger<br />

postsorstrainer assemblies.<br />

6. Makethe strainaslong as reasonably<br />

possible. Good flat going may allow 1200m<br />

strains but in roughground you may be<br />

down to 100m.<br />

7. Carefulsiting of gatewayscan make<br />

stockmovement alot easier.<br />

The lie and the shape of the land will<br />

influenceyour decision. You may decide<br />

on somehuman intervention and push in a<br />

nice,even flatline withabulldozer on<br />

whichtoconstruct your fence.<br />

It’s agood idea to limitthe number of<br />

angles in yourfence if possible. This may<br />

include taking intoaccount the numberof<br />

rise and dip posts as well.<br />

Will you go around aspur or over it? Will<br />

you run acrossthe ditchoralongside it?<br />

Will you fence off the boggy patch or fence<br />

rightthrough it?<br />

Selecting material:<br />

Post length (how far will it go in the<br />

ground?): Experiments with radiata pine<br />

postshave shownthere is arelationship<br />

between postdiameter and the necessary<br />

depththe postisburiedinthe ground to<br />

stop it overturning. In mediumclays,apost<br />

set in the soil 10 timesits diameterormore<br />

will usually fail by breaking.Insofter soils,<br />

the 1:10ratiobecomes as large as 1:15, so<br />

a90mm postset 900mminsoft soilwill fail<br />

by overturning. In other words, to obtain a<br />

strongerfence there is little to be gained by<br />

usingalargerdiameter post, unlessitis<br />

balanced by using apost which is longer<br />

too. The only benefit of the larger diameter<br />

is the increased facewidth pushing against<br />

the soil. From then it can be seenthat the<br />

extrastrength of the No.1A post(for<br />

example) is wasted with a1.8m post.<br />

Because of its extra width, aNo.1 halfroundpostofthe<br />

same length in the same<br />

ground would be stronger. Unfortunately,<br />

longer posts are disproportionately more<br />

expensive, so the standard1.8m­long post<br />

is almostinvariably used.<br />

Quickguide:<br />

Medium claysoils:Bury at 10 times the<br />

post diameter.Softersoils: Bury at up to 15<br />

timesthe post diameter. —Fencing<br />

Help for erosion-prone land<br />

Aprogramme aimedatsupporting<br />

landowners witherosion­prone landhas<br />

resulted in 2000 poplars being planted,<br />

and about 200 hectares of nativebush<br />

retired at Mt Guardian in the Hurunui<br />

District.<br />

The first year of the four­yearSoil<br />

Conservationand Regeneration (SCAR)<br />

programme has ended withfarmers<br />

beinggiven advice, tools and skills to help<br />

improve their farm systems and water<br />

quality through reducing the amount of<br />

sediment getting intowaterways because<br />

of erosion.<br />

SCAR is jointly funded by Environment<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> (ECan) and the Ministry for<br />

Primary Industries’ Hill Country Erosion<br />

Fund.Itispart of anew wave of hill<br />

It is hoped to retire afurther100<br />

hectares of native bush, engage with 40<br />

new landowners and plant anurserywith<br />

6500 new poplars and willows.<br />

The programme alsoaims to complete<br />

42 free land­use capability maps.<br />

Afeatureofthe maps is that staff look<br />

at soil, slope and rock type on properties,<br />

Waipara landownerRichard<br />

Murchisonsays his poplar planting<br />

regime in ablock whereerosion had the<br />

potentialtobeaproblem wasboosted by<br />

being able to apply for SCAR funding.<br />

‘‘The benefits are two­fold.First,it<br />

stops erosion and sediment into<br />

waterways, and second,itprovides stock<br />

shelter and shade.Itwas asmooth<br />

Peter Fitzpatrick, of Cheviot, had<br />

already beenplanting 100 to 150 polesa<br />

advice. “Thebenefits to thistype of<br />

planting are many–preventingerosion,<br />

shade in thesummerfor stock, and the<br />

planting looks good.’’<br />

ECan<strong>North</strong>ern Zonedeliverymanager<br />

Andrew Arps saysthe team hasfound the<br />

community receptive to the package.<br />

‘‘Putting in space planting and retiring<br />

erosion­prone landimproves bothfarm<br />

systems and environmental outcomes,<br />

suchasreduced phosphorus in streams<br />

established, will limit erosion.<br />

Relief over firearm exemption<br />

Federated Farmersisrelieved thatits<br />

advocacy for farmers to be able to apply<br />

for endorsements to use prohibited<br />

firearms for pestcontrol has succeeded.<br />

ASupplementary Order Paperhas<br />

been introduced to the Arms Legislation<br />

Bill that allowsagriculturaland forestry<br />

businesses to apply forendorsements to<br />

use prohibited firearms for pestcontrol<br />

as part of their business operations.<br />

However, therewill be strict vetting<br />

and qualificationcriteria for farmersto<br />

meet.<br />

This includes demonstrating their<br />

suitability and proving prohibited<br />

firearms are needed to controlthe<br />

economic and environmental damage of<br />

problemspecies suchasferal pigs,feral<br />

goats, deer, wallabies, rabbits, hares and<br />

Canada geese.<br />

The endorsements for landowners<br />

will put them on the same footing as<br />

Classy Kaiapoi pummels Saracens<br />

By LINDSAY KERR and<br />

PETER WILLIAMS<br />

RUGBY<br />

Kaiapoi’s players have inked<br />

themselves in as virtually<br />

certain semi­finalists, showing<br />

the sort of talent that suggests<br />

they could go all the way in the<br />

<strong>2020</strong> Luisetti Seeds <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> Rugby competition.<br />

They thrashed alacklustre<br />

Saracens team 45­7 at the<br />

weekend.<br />

Saracens never got into the<br />

match, being comprehensively<br />

outplayed in every facet.<br />

Up front, Kaiapoi dominated<br />

in the scrums and lineouts, as<br />

well as at the breakdown.<br />

In the backline, Kaiapoi<br />

showed confidence that posed a<br />

constant threat to its<br />

opposition.<br />

Saracens tried hard. Brett<br />

Hancox, playing on the flank,<br />

and Ollie Ashby at half­back<br />

were two of Saracens’ better<br />

players.<br />

Kaiapoi put in atotal team<br />

effort. It is almost unfair to<br />

single out any individuals, but<br />

Connor Smith at lock had a<br />

gargantuan game and Rob<br />

Samson at fullback showed his<br />

class every time he got near the<br />

ball.<br />

Scorers: Kaiapoi 45 (Samson<br />

(3), Ben Wicksteed, Luka<br />

Tootoo, and Iowane<br />

Koroitukana (2) tries; Taine<br />

Jacobs­Lawson, Lance Taylor<br />

(4) conversions.) Saracens 7<br />

(Hadrian Jackson try, Ricky<br />

Allin conversion).<br />

Hard­fought win<br />

Glenmark­Cheviot’s<br />

unbeaten run continued, but it<br />

did not come easily.<br />

Last week, it battled to a<br />

hard­fought win over Hurunui.<br />

This time it was Ashley, which<br />

led its more fancied rivals at<br />

the break before losing 20­26.<br />

Playing on its home ground<br />

before apacked gallery, Ashley<br />

threw everything at the visitors,<br />

scoring first with apenalty goal<br />

before half back Brett Cameron<br />

scored atry, following amove<br />

that started with an intercept.<br />

Glenmark responded and,<br />

after asolid build­up, Angus<br />

Harrison scored in the corner.<br />

Fifteen minutes the side took<br />

the lead when Hayden<br />

O’Donnell crashed over in a<br />

wall of jerseys to score.<br />

With half­time looming,<br />

Korbyn Gray kicked Ashley<br />

ahead 13­12 with his second<br />

penalty.<br />

The scene was set for the<br />

final outcome in the opening<br />

moments of the second half,<br />

when Glenmark’s livewire<br />

loosie Jacob Vincent scored a<br />

try. This was converted by<br />

super boot Brook Retallick.<br />

Ashley continued to irritate<br />

Touchdown ... Rob Samson scores for Kaiapoi against Saracens.<br />

its opposition and attacked<br />

with vigour. However, on two<br />

occasions when in promising<br />

attacking situations the side<br />

was let down by lineout<br />

inaccuracies.<br />

Fifteen minutes from time,<br />

Retallick seized on asloppy<br />

Ashley pass and sprinted 40m to<br />

take his team to a26­13 lead.<br />

Ashley stayed in the contest<br />

and after aspirited attack the<br />

Ashley forwards rumbled over<br />

the line, with Louis James the<br />

try scorer.<br />

Glenmark­Cheviot’s overall<br />

accuracy was again the key to<br />

its success. Lock Angus Foster<br />

and prop Hayden O’Donnell<br />

were standout performers in<br />

the pack, while halfback Jordy<br />

Gray organised the backs with<br />

efficiency and enthusiasm.<br />

While beaten, Ashley again<br />

showed that the team of <strong>2020</strong> is<br />

one that will improve with each<br />

outing and should emerge as<br />

serious semi­final contenders.<br />

Scoreboard: Glenmark­<br />

Cheviot; 26 (Angus Harrison,<br />

Hayden O’Donnell, Jacob<br />

Vincent tries; Brook Retallick a<br />

try and three conversions.)<br />

Ashley 20 (Brett Cameron,<br />

Louis James tries; Korbyn Gray<br />

2conversions, 2penalties.)<br />

Comeback effort<br />

Hurunui bounced back from<br />

its loss to Glenmark to come<br />

from well behind to head off a<br />

visiting Ohoka side 28­25.<br />

While the victory was sweet<br />

for Hurunui, it was agony for<br />

Ohoka, which led for most of the<br />

game, only to lose by 3points.<br />

Hurunui posted the first<br />

points with apenalty before<br />

Ohoka equalised. Both sides<br />

traded tries before Tom Taylor<br />

put Ohoka ahead 15­8 with a<br />

converted try on half­time.<br />
