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 Bishopdale,

Papanui and Bryndwr 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,”

Harrison said.

In residential zones, singleroom

listings with the owner

present were permitted as “bed

and breakfasts” under the District

Plan rules, allowing up to

six guests to stay a maximum of

90 days.

Upgrades for play spaces

• By Louis Day

ALMOST HALF a million

dollars is set to be spent on

recreational areas across the area.

Bishopdale Park skate park,

Armitage Reserve play space and

Annandale Park play space will

all receive renewals after their

landscape plans were approved

last week.

This will

see the city

council pour

a total of

$480,000 into

improving the

standard of

these facilities.

David

Cartwright

The majority

of the money,

$340,000, will

be put towards Bishopdale Park’s

skate park as it nears the end of

its lifespan.

The newly-approved design

includes a 1.65m hipped quarter

pipe with a corner pocket, several

hips with a banked extension,

a double-sided pole jam, and a

mini ramp, with work on the site

set to commence in February.

Both the pyramid and round

rail elements will also be made

higher.

Installed in the late 1980s, it

was originally an asphalt roller

skating area, with the addition of

skate park elements in 1996.

Design elements for the new

skate area follow community

feedback at the Bishopdale Skate

Jam, along with wider consultation.

The majority of submissions

on the upgrade supported the

improvements.

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board chairman

David Cartwright believed

that the mix of new elements

will appeal to beginners and

intermediate-level skaters.

“Skateboarding is firmly

entrenched in the suburban

landscape and we need to keep

pace with the demand for fresh

elements and new challenges,”

he said.

“Much like the skaters, we

need to remain agile and bring

renewed energy to a popular

public space.

“The present site is ripe for

renewal – and a quarter pipe.”

Meanwhile, the play space on

Armitage Reserve will also see

$78,000 put towards it.

This money will go towards

a “space shuttle spinner,” three

new swings, retention of the

existing large slide, a picnic table

and a new asphalt footpath.

Community feedback showed

a strong support for more swings

to be included in the landscape

plan as well as deep concern over

the proposal to remove the existing

slide, which the city council

decided to leave in its place in the

end.

The city council is aiming to

begin work on the site late this

year.

A further $62,000 is also set to

be spent on the play space within

Annandale Park.

Work on the park, which the

city council is again hoping to

begin towards the end of this

year, will include the installation

of two swings, a mulberry bush

carousel, a “dinosaur rocker,”

a slide, three new trees and a

picnic table.

Sports gear

initiative

spreads

• By Bea Gooding

A SPORTS gear initiative has

been experiencing high demand

since its establishment four years

ago, and now it is now spreading

further afield.

The Give Gear Get Great initiative

collects donations of unused

sports equipment and shoes,

which is then recycled back into

the community at local events or

through a collection system.

It originally began in the

Spreydon-Cashmere Community

Board area in 2016, eventually

spreading to the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton

area, and were now

looking to set up collection points

in the Papanui-Innes area to benefit

more families.

Spreydon-Cashmere Community

Board chairwoman Karolin

Potter was the mastermind

behind the idea and said demand

had skyrocketed since it started.

“We can’t meet demand, but

we’ve been delighted by the success

of Give Gear Get Great,” she said.

Ten wheelie bins to collect the

gear were ready to be rolled out

into the area once the city council

finalised with community groups

who were interested in delivering

this initiative and hosting a bin.

‘Aunties’ helping vulnerable women

Neighbourhood

groups, organisations

and charities play

an important part in

keeping communities

supported in a

number of ways. The

Christchurch Aunties

chairwoman Heather

Milne speaks to Bea

Gooding about how

they help vulnerable

women and children

experiencing family

violence

Walk me through what

services The Christchurch

Aunties provide and how it

came to be what it is today.

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.

The Christchurch Aunties

started in 2014 when Jackie Clark

in Auckland (who founded The

Aunties movement up there) put

me in touch with a woman who

was moving to Christchurch for

her safety.

It became apparent that

there were many people in the

community who wanted to

help, and that there was a way

to harness social media and

business connections to get

results. This was a time when I

also realised how much learning

I had (and still have) to do about

family violence, discrimination,

and unconscious bias.

In 2017, I gathered a group

of people around me to be the

board of The Christchurch

Aunties. We set the wheels in

motion with systems, policy,

communications, and finally,

charitable status earlier this year.

It’s been an amazing journey so

far.

What does it mean to be an

“auntie?”

Anyone, anywhere can be

an “auntie.’’ The only rules are

that you need to be kind, and

not judge people. That last bit

is striking because it’s human

nature to judge – we’re all guilty

of it. 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.

and children experiencing violence

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

people warm, safe, and feeling

valued.

Another important role

we have is to cultivate the

nurturing and generous side

of the Canterbury community

that we’ve seen so much of in

the past 10 years. People really

want to help and learn, but don’t

always know how. So we gently

introduce people to the concept

of volunteering and support, and

how to donate effectively so that

recipients feel respected.

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.

The social workers and support

staff who we see working with

the clients and families have dealt

with the increase for so long,

that I think it’s become the ‘new

normal’. They do an incredible

job.

What are some

misconceptions about family

violence and vulnerability that

the average person may not

know about? Why is this the

case?

There is a very common

assumption that family violence

happens to people in other

neighbourhoods and to other

families. A very mistaken belief

is that family violence is only

experienced by people who are

struggling financially. For a long

time, family violence wasn’t

talked about in New Zealand, so

I think a lot of misconceptions

sprung up simply from ignorance

– and humans are reluctant to

change their thought patterns.

There are Christchurch aunties

out there who have experienced

violence and vulnerability in

the past or have supported their

family or friends through the

system. These people are from

diverse backgrounds and cultures.

They are from all walks of life.

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. Your behaviour with

these simple steps will inspire

others, including children. Know

who to contact for advice and

support when someone you know

comes to you angry or hurt.

There are a whole lot of great

people out there who can help.

Antarctic spirit encapsulated

A GROUP of year 7 and 8 pupils

from Papanui’s St Joseph’s

School have become the first

to graduate from the inaugural

International Antarctic Centre

online learning programme.

A number of pupils gained an

excellence for their efforts in the

10-week academy.

Said International Antarctic

Centre education manager Miranda

Satterthwaite: “We were

impressed with how thoroughly

the students adapted to receiving

online instruction and how

they could apply their learning

– from building Antarctic-bases

to understanding the intention

behind the Antarctic Treaty to

the increasing issue of tourism –

to the in-centre exploration that

marked the final assessment.

“Lockdown was a test for

us all, but the students of St

Joseph’s truly handled their

challenge with the mettle of

Antarctic explorers before

them.”

St Joseph’s School deputy

principal Marietjie Verweij said

they considered themselves

very lucky that the pupils had

been set-up for digital learning

and were ready to discover and

extend their learning just as the

Antarctic Academy programme

was ready to launch.

ADVENTURE: (From left) – International Antarctic Centre’s

education manager Miranda Satterthwaite and Hagglund

driver Phurenje Sherpa with pupils Claudia Vivian,

Molly Maynard, George Robertson, Ryan Cooke and Carter

Devlin, and St Joseph’s School deputy principal Marietjie

Verweij.

“We just couldn’t believe how

it all worked out, given how

unexpected and how disruptive

the nine weeks could otherwise

have been for our students and

teachers,” she said.

The school had a special

assembly held to honour the

academy graduates and to

welcome the start of the school’s

contribution to Wild in Art’s

community sculpture and charity

programme raising funds

for Cholmondeley Children’s

Home.

Satterthwaite said the International

Antarctic Centre’s

academy is enjoying strong

demand for its in-centre and

online programmes and has

plans to further this as schools

understand the significance of

Antarctic studies and how it

meets curriculum and social

needs so thoroughly.

“Science, geography, history,

biology, engineering are all met,

but one thing that undeniably

provides the most positive

impact on well-being is meeting

one of our real-life rescue

penguins.”

Proposals not supported

• From page 1

Policies to restrict non-residential

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.

Mouth-watering gourmet

pie maker & baker

Owner and pie maker extraordinaire, Delwyn Lanauze, spent years

caring for your community” Delwyn says. “What we serve at

Mrs Dentons café & delicatessen is what I’ve been cooking at

home, cooking for my family, forever!”

While you will always find speciality gourmet pies, such as

Chatham Island blue cod, leek and parsley, and scallop pies in the

range, the sky is the limit when it comes to Delwyn’s culinary combinations.

Steak and Kidney, BBQ beef, bacon and cheese are favourites too.

The cafes takeaway cabinets are full of Delwyn’s delious baking including scones,

muffins, slices, cinnamon buns & sandwiches as well as take home meals and gluten free,

vegetarian frittatas. A range of homemade chutneys are available as well as Chatham

MODERN

WORKSHOP

OFFERS OLD

FASHIONED SERVICE

2020 has seen some big changes for MD

Automotive, including a new name and

improved workshop and facilities, but one

thing that remains consistent is the high level

of service and expertise they have always

been known for.

Formally, Allan’s Tyre & Auto, MD Automotive

is a fully MTA Authorised workshop,

offering a full range of mechanical repairs.

From Warrants of Fitness, servicing, wheel

alignments and tyre fitting through to

cambelts, brakes and CV joints, suspension,

shocks and steering.

Pre-purchase inspections are also available so

you can buy your next car with confidence.

While MD Automotive are the only

independent workshop in Christchurch

specialising in Mitsubishi’s, their qualified

automotive mechanics will service most

makes and models and have over 20 years’

experience between them. Experienced in all

Mitsubishi models (Pajero, Triton, Challenger,

Colt, Galant, Diamante, Lancer, Evolutions,

L300), they can also service all late model

Mistubishi’s with common rail diesel.

The workshop refit is nearing completion,

so don’t hesitate to book your pride and joy

in today. Loan cars are offered, subject to

availability and for those small jobs there are

plenty of options in our block to treat yourself

at the same time.

The plan identifies four

needs places to

meet, socialise and learn,

to be active and to connect.

The need to support our

vulnerable communities is

something we hear about

often, and this has also

become a priority in this

plan.

We are lucky in Papanui-

Innes to have some amazing

groups working hard

to make our communities

better for all, and we want

to continue to support

them, particularly in

targeting youth, the elderly

and those who are socially

isolated.

We are aware that most

for the next two years, we

want to ensure that our local

community is educated

about what is happening

and can feel heard.

We want to grow our

community networks,

PROPERTY NEWS

Destined for real estate

If there was one word to describe Ray

White real estate agent Brent Rushworth,

it would be enthusiastic. This man loves

his job and loves the company he works

for.

Brent’s career in real estate began when

he joined Ray White Bishopdale in 2017.

Prior to that he had run the New Zealand

branch of an Australian optical supply

company for 11 years, and when the New

Zealand operation was closed following

a buy-out, he was head-hunted to join a

similar company.

After a year with them, Brent decided it

was time for a complete change.

“My wife and I were keen on real

estate,” Brent says. “We had bought, sold

and built houses, so I knew that’s what I

wanted to do. I wanted to design my own

destiny, so while I was still working at

my last job I studied for my Real Estate

Diploma through Open Polytech in the

evenings.

“I knew Barry Ellis (owner of Ray

White Strowan and Bishopdale) through

rugby, we met for a coffee one day and he

invited me to come on board.”

Although it was a “steep learning

curve” for Brent when he started, he

is now an area expert in the NorWest,

particularly in Casebrook and

Bishopdale. In the three years since he

joined Ray White Bishopdale, he has

become a well-known face in the area

through signage and letterbox drops,

which has helped him become highly

successful in selling real estate. So much

so, that this year he has achieved Ray

White Premier Status.

“This is based on sales calculated on

the Gross Commission Index, as well as

customer feedback,” he explains. “Every

time we sell a property, both the vendor

and the purchaser are asked to complete

a survey and give us an NPS score out of

10.”

The presentation of his Premier Status

will take place in September.

“Being successful in the real estate

business is about the relationships

we build with our clients. Everyone’s

situation is different, so we need to be

empathetic, make the process as stress

free as possible, and help people achieve

their dreams,” Brent says.

“We have a saying in the office, and

that’s ‘clients for life’. So, people come

back to us whenever they want to sell a

property, and they refer us to family and

friends.”

Brent describes Ray White Bishopdale

as a “fantastic company to work for”.

“There’s so much support and

encouragement – they want to see you

succeed.”

The family values represented by the

Ray White company, which was founded

in Australia in 1902 by Ray White and is

a fourth-generation family business, are

mirrored with Barry and Karen Ellis, he

says.

“It’s the same values – you become part

of the family, and that’s important to me.

I like the culture here, too – having goals

to achieve. The team environment is very

important.”

Brent’s wife Jayne has joined Ray White

Bishopdale as his PA, taking care of

administration and calling clients. She

is currently studying for her Real Estate

Diploma and once she achieves that, she

and Brent will join forces as a real estate

team.

Real estate is a demanding industry,

so it’s important to keep a balance

with family life and taking time out to

recharge the batteries, Brent says.

He and Jayne have three sons, 20, 17

and 12, and as a family they are actively

Brent Rushworth and his wife Jayne.

involved in rugby, skiing, and surfing.

They live locally in Casebook, and

Brent has been club captain of the local

Merivale Papanui Rugby Football Club

and currently coaches the junior team.

He also provides sponsorship support

to the rugby club, the local bowling club

and Casebrook Intermediate.

Enthusiastic in every aspect of his life,

Brent makes sure he always provides the

best possible service for his clients. If you

are thinking about your next move in

Okay, so this year – this most unusual of years –

it’s all about home.

Staying home, enjoying your very own backyard

or that beautiful expanse we know as our entire

countryside here in New Zealand.

Holidays, breaks, refreshers, little weekends

away are all to be enjoyed within our own

boundaries and borders.

Unlike other years, it’s about discovering or

rediscovering what many Kiwis take for granted.

Large, green open spaces, public galleries and

museums (that unlike those in many cities

around the world are free to visit), and rivers,

lakes and mountains within driving distance for

most.

I can vividly remember being on a European trip

with my family when the guide asked where we

came from. After listening to our response, a long

pause occurred, then a rather loud, disapproving

Gaelic sniff. “Noo Zeeland, zee end of zee earth.”

And at the time I thought it was, having taken 30

hours to arrive at our destination, but today that

very isolation feels like a blessing. It’s easy to

see why so many are also taking time to reinvest

some love and attention in their own properties

due to staying home rather than traveling, and

businesses such as landscapers, renovation

builders and interior designers are seeing the

benefits of that change.

If a staycation is currently on your radar and

you want to take the time to focus on your own

home, here are some options that might give

you some satisfaction, add value … or both.

First, Declutter

Nail that garage first. Get rid of all the stuff that’s

broken, outdated or no longer useful.

If it’s still functional but of no use to you, give it

away, recycle or dispose of it in a method that’s

environmentally mindful, if possible.

I personally use the garage as a bit of a dumping

ground, much to the frustration of my husband,

but I also love the feeling of nailing an area that’s

long needed a tidy-up.

Once you’ve done that, move inside and see

if you can improve your surroundings and

wellbeing by editing some of the stuff that fills

your space.

Gentle Changes

With these two areas decluttered, let’s go for

some interior changes.

Move furniture, move art, have some fun and

enjoy the changes.

Edit, and what you don’t edit, use. Nothing

needs to occupy a precious space where items

are relegated as being ‘just for good’.

Use everything you have, no matter its value or

composition, and have fun.

Your family space should convey a feeling of

warmth, wellbeing and welcome.

Step Outside

During the lockdown period, I remember

watching people in Spain and thinking, what

must it be like not being permitted to go outside?

This is where so many of us are fortunate. No

matter your home’s size, your property address,

whether you’re in a large residence or a compact

unit, try to make the most of the outdoors. Your

outdoors. Follow the sun (if there is any!) and

give thanks that although we might not be able

to travel the world, you’d travel the world to find

what we have in our own backyard.

It seems that not only myself but others have

had a chance to stop chasing everything that

appears greener somewhere else, instead

appreciating what’s been in front of our noses

the whole time. Home.

Here’s to your home and mine, and here’s to a

staycation.

recommends checking that your lights and windscreen wipers

are in working order, and to ensure your vehicle will start on

cold mornings they offer free battery and alternator and starter

tests, and free battery fitting.

Their well-equipped workshop includes specialised diagnostic

equipment designed to find any faults with vehicles’ electronics,

air bags or ABS braking system, which the qualified and

experienced auto electrical specialists will repair quickly and

efficiently.

Roses Auto Electrical provides full electrical services for all

makes and models of European, Japanese and light commercial

vehicles. Any time a warning light flashes up on the dashboard,

they advise calling into their workshop to have it checked out.

Roses Auto Electrical has been in business for more than 20

years, and the workshop team are constantly updating their

knowledge with industry training, as well as having the latest

state-of-the-art equipment in the workshop.

The customer comes first for the friendly, professional team

at Roses Auto Electrical, and motorists having their vehicle

serviced there can have confidence in its performance and

safety, especially in cold weather when driving is often more

hazardous.

Papanui. Phone 352 5090 to book in for service or repairs,
