Owners worried about

future of Airbnb in city

• By Bea Gooding

CHRISTCHURCH Airbnb

owners are concerned about

the future of home-share

accommodation as the city

council mulls changes to its

rules for short-term

accommodation.

Proposed changes to the City

Plan would allow whole unit

listings in some areas but not

others, and would not allow

listings in multi-unit dwellings

or on rear sections.

Another option on the table

enables listings up to a specified

number of days, such as 60, 90

or 120 days per year.

City council head of planning

and strategic transport David

Griffiths confirmed a council

committee would ultimately

decide what to do with the

proposals next month.

But Christchurch Holiday

Homes director Sue Harrison,

who manages homes in

Woolston and the wider city,

said there were fears a change

would “put big hotel profits

ahead of what’s best for the

city.”

“For many of us, these rules

would mean putting away our

welcome mats for good.

“We can’t pretend it hasn’t

been hurtful at times when our

intentions have been wilfully

misrepresented. We’re members

of this community and we care

very deeply about Christchurch,”

Ngutuawa School

(new Bamford School Build)

The staff, students and whanau of

Ngutuawa School are thrilled to have

moved into their new school building.

The school has been built on the site that

was Bamford School in Gould Crescent,

Woolston.

The name Ngutuawa, which literally

means the river mouth or estuary,

was gifted to the school community by

Ngāi Tūāhuriri and reflects the cultural

significance of our school being built placed

next to the mouth of the Ōpāwaho River.

The Bamford School BOT, staff and

community are very proud of our new

building which will provide a fantastic

learning and play space for generations to

come.

The new school has been well thought out

and designed for students to maximise

their learning in a variety of spaces.

While the senior area of the school is

more open plan, the junior class are

small and can be closed off from the

rest of the school so the new entrants

can have their own spaces as they settle

into life at school.

Large spaces have been incorporated

into the school for science and art

teaching.

A variety of sound proof break out spaces

give the students an opportunity to work

in smaller groups with specialist teachers

and support staff.

A new hall/gym area is perfect for sports

training and physical education lessons to

carry on no matter what the weather.

Year 3 student Ryan said “I was impressed

with the architecture and the builders really

saw the potential in us.”

All the whanau and students are very proud

of Ngutuawa School and we look forward to

a bright future

and realising

our potential.

Keeping correct time a

problem for repaired clock

THE newly-repaired New

Brighton clock is having some

time-keeping troubles but the

city council is working to resolve

the problem.

The heritage clock has

had accuracy issues since its

mechanism was repaired and

reinstalled last month, but this

was expected.

The city council head of

parks Andrew Rutledge says

the mechanism for the clock is

very complex and antiquated

and it was anticipated there

would be some initial problems

with accuracy and consistency

following reinstallation.

“We’d like to reassure people

that we’re aware of the problem

and we’re working closely with

a specialist sub-contractor to

carry out some ongoing minor

adjustments, but this may take

several weeks.”

This fine-tuning process is

part of bedding in, he says. “This

is totally normal and just part of

reinstalling complex machinery

that has been out of action for a

long time and has a number of

moving parts.

“It will take time to settle

Proposals not supported

• From page 1

Policies to restrict nonresidential

activities in residential

zones made consent more

difficult to obtain.

Said Harrison: “We don’t

support discriminating between

hosted and unhosted short-term

rentals. Whether a host is present

or not doesn’t form a sound basis

for regulation as there’s many

variables involved to police this.”

Airbnb owners did not support

the proposals due to the growing

need for self-catering homes for

groups and families that many

motels, hotels and hostels did not

cater for.

THey have outlined their

concerns to community boards

across the city.

THey favoured the option

which removed restrictions on

whole unit listings and treated

home-share accommodation as a

residential activity.

“THis option allows for

better regulation by registering

homes. All other options

leave you with an impossible

compliance issue.

“If you restrict self-contained

homes, visitors will limit their

time in Christchurch,” Harrison

said.

THey supported a nationwide

approach to regulations which

did not “geographically distort

the market,” and a mandatory

code of conduct for owners,

managers and guests enforceable

under a three-strike rule.

AirDNA data shows

Christchurch hosts earned about

$50 million between August 2018

and 2019.

It is estimated about 250,000

guests were hosted last year.

Griffiths said some regulations

could be approached from a

nationwide perspective.

“A nationwide code of practice

would be possible for short-term

accommodation, but would

require agreement of all listing

platform providers, council and

other regulatory agencies,” he

said.

“However, a nationwide code

of practice could not be the only

regulatory mechanism in spite

of this being a preferred option.

City council has responsibilities

under the Building Act, Resource

Management Act and other

legislation that the code may not

address.’’

THe Government could also

issue objectives and policies to

ensure a consistent approach to

managing the issue, such as the

use of land and its effects that all

councils must enforce.

THe city council will present a

report to the Urban Development

and Transport Committee

outlining recommendations on

a preferred option including

whether or not to notify changes

to the District Plan next month.

‘Aunties’ helping vulnerable families

A myriad of groups help

keep our community

moving. Reporter Bea

Gooding speaks to The

Christchurch Aunties

chairwoman Heather

Milne about the

organisation’s work

What is The Christchurch

Aunties?

We’re a network of 4000

people who provide practical

support and donations for

women and children in

Christchurch, Selwyn District,

and Waimakariri District, who

have experienced family violence

and vulnerability. We work with

staff at about 11 organisations

(such as women’s refuges), who

tell us what they need for their

clients, then we get it to them by

mobilising our network.

We regularly provide toiletries,

security items and emergency

trips funding. When women

are setting up new homes after

relocating, we provide new or

quality second-hand furniture

and bedding. Sourcing and

donating baby gear is another

area that we excel at.

In addition to those regular

requests, we sometimes receive

client-specific donation requests

such as gadgets and weighted

blankets for children with

behavioural or communication

issues, quality sports gear,

birthday cakes, and vouchers for

local attractions.

What does it mean to be an

“auntie?”

Anyone, anywhere can be an

“auntie.’’ We have Christchurch

Aunties who regularly donate

toiletries and new bedding.

Others have set up regular

payments into our account. We

have a team of volunteers who

get hands-on and help us move

things, do administrative tasks,

mend furniture, test electrical

gear, and tidy our storage.

There are also hundreds of

Christchurch aunties who share

information about us and get

us in touch with other donors.

All of this support is part of the

giant jigsaw that makes it so

successful.

Why is an organisation like

The Christchurch Aunties

important for the community?

The immediate importance

of The Christchurch Aunties

is that we relieve the mental

load for women and children

experiencing family violence and

vulnerability, and we also relieve

the mental load of the staff

who are caring for them. Our

donations go towards keeping

SLOAN

people warm, safe, and feeling

valued.

What are the major issues

currently impacting those who

you serve, and why?

The issue that we’ve seen

recently impacting families is

Covid-19 and the lockdown. This

situation became like a pressure

cooker of social isolation and

financial stress for many.

Children were home from

school and saw the violence

happening. Solo parents

struggled to get supplies as they

couldn’t leave their children at

home, but also couldn’t take

them to the supermarket.

In the days before level 4,

we frantically gave out all our

supplies of toiletries, activities,

and fuel/supermarket vouchers

to organisations – not knowing

when we’d be able to supply

them again.

Luckily we were granted

essential status, but the

increased demand for basic

donations of toiletries, security

gear, and vouchers have

continued.

Canterbury has functioned

with a post-traumatic stress

disorder faultline running under

us since 2010. So although the

lockdown was the catalyst for

recent spikes in family violence,

there has been an increase for

some time.

Moving forward, how can

organisations and society better

support those experiencing

these hardships and the

reduction of harm within

homes? And why?

As a society, we can’t make

any real impact until we stop

and listen. I urge people to get

educated on family violence

and poverty in New Zealand.

Be open-minded and learn

about your unconscious bias.

Listen to those who speak from

experience – they know more

than you do on this subject.

It’s okay to change the way you

think about things.
