Cool end to red hot rugby final

claims

Spring

Show

There’s probably only one time you can pour cold water on the coach and Hamish Maw took the initiative

after his Southbridge side claimed the Coleman Shield with a 40-32 win over Waihora at Southbridge on

Saturday. Victorious coach Reece Allen ducked but still got the dousing.

ONE OF the district’s biggest

events has been cancelled because

of Covid.

The Selwyn Spring Show

in Leeston was scheduled for

October 17 but because of

uncertainty

over Covid,

organisers have

had no option

but to pull the

plug.

The event

attracted

12,000 people

last year. Andrew Benny

Said Andrew

Benny, president of the Ellesmere

A&P Association which organises

the show: “The association had

been really positive during the

more relaxed Covid levels that the

show could carry on. However,

with the second wave having

arrived and the extended level

2 restriction period, it has now

made holding the 2020 show

untenable.”

A GREAT photo on

the front page today of

victorious Southbridge

coach Reece Allen getting

the treatment in the sheds

after the Coleman Shield

win on Saturday.

The match was an arm

wrestle; Waihora was

marginally ahead at halftime

before a Dan Carter

converted try early in the

second half gave Southbridge

the breathing room it

needed.

The Covid situation meant

the crowd was limited on

Saturday, otherwise the

anticipated great contest,

coupled with the fact Carter

was playing, would have

packed the ground out.

On a disappointing note,

really bad form to see a pig

spray painted, leg cut off,

paraded around on a car and

dumped (page 4).

I hope it met a humane

end.

There are some ‘you know

whats’ out there.

House prices continue to rise

Median house prices in

the district

• By Devon Bolger

MEDIAN HOUSE prices in the

district are on the rise.

New figures from Core

Logic show the median in each

township has increased from last

year.

Darfield had the highest

increase with a three and a half

per cent jump to $441,900 from

$427,100 in 2019.

The median

house value

in Tai Tapu

has increased

by $20,450 or

three per cent

in the last year

and now sits at

Brendan

Shefford

$696,700.

Ray White

Town and

Lifestyle Real

Estate owner agent Brendan

Shefford said the district has

been filled with optimism since

returning from lockdown.

“The relaxation of loan to value

ratios, extremely low-interest

rates and returning kiwis has

seen a surge of highly motivated

buyers in the market,” he said.

“We open over 40 homes

each week across Selwyn which

means our buyer pool is growing

week by week and buyers are

competing to own.”

RISING: This house on Craigieburn St in Darfield is listed on Trade Me with an asking price

of $475,000. ​

Shefford said the advantage to

the seller is evident in the results

they are achieving and backs up

recent reports on the median

price increases.

Harcourts Lincoln principal

officer James Twiss said the

increase in Darfield is related to

historically low housing prices.

“It is good value for money and

a jump in median is following

the market trend where houses,

like in Darfield, which are

sub $500,000 can be a good

investment as a rental.

“Also if you are first home

buyer you can purchase a home

that doesn’t break the bank and

take advantage of record lowinterest

rates,’ he said.

He said West Melton, on the

other hand, has seen prices

increasing over the last three

years which keeps pace with the

rest of the country’s growth in

that period.

This has led to the smallest

increase in the district of 0.2 per

cent to $831,100 which is also the

highest median.

“Essentially the market in West

Melton is probably not seen to

offer as much value and given

housing stocks there are higher

value and newer than other

markets, this makes sense.”

West Melton: $831,100,

2019 – $829,550 (0.2 per

cent or $1550 increase)

Rolleston: $570,300,

2019 – $561,700 (1.5 per

cent or $8,600 increase)

Lincoln: $629,050, 2019

– $616,750 (2 per cent or

$12,300 increase)

Tai Tapu: $696,700, 2019

– $676,250 (3 per cent or

$20,450 increase)

Prebbleton: $769,450,

2019 – $760,950 (1.1 per

cent or $8,500 increase)

Springston: $530,050,

2019 - $531,850 (0.6 per

cent or $3200 increase)

Leeston: $448,400, 2019

– $438,900 (2.2 per cent

or $9,500 increase)

Darfield: $441,900, 2019

– $427,100 (3.5 per cent

or $14,800 increase)

Kirwee: $515,250, 2019

– $508,550 (1.3 per cent

or $6700 increase)

Dead pig dumped in Lincoln

LINCOLN residents

are appalled a dead pig

painted blue was dumped

in the township and seen

by young children.

The pig, which also

had a leg cut off, had

earlier been seen in

Lincoln tied to the bonnet

of a vehicle. The vehicle

was parked outside a flat

which is occupied by

students.

One resident said the

pig was seen by his young

grandchildren in the

Liffey Stream. They were

distressed by the sight of it.

The district council

told the Selwyn Times

it had received a call on

Sunday, September 6

from a member of the

public saying the pig,

spray pained blue, had

been dumped on a berm

in Gerald St, near Kildare

Tce.

The council arranged

for it to be removed by

a contractor and safely

disposed of, a spokesman

said.

Countdown decision soon

• By Devon Bolger

A DECISION on

whether a Countdown

supermarket will be built

in Lincoln is expected

within weeks.

District council

planning manager Ben

Rhodes said the hearing,

which began in late July,

has been adjourned for

additional expert evidence

and the applicant’s right

of reply.

Once the information

is provided, the

commissioner will close

the hearing.

Once it is closed, the

commissioner has 15

working days to issue a

decision.

“We anticipate having

a decision on the consent

supermarket in Lincoln

around the end of

September/early October.”

Lincoln Developments

Ltd applied to build

and operate a 3063m 2

supermarket in the

Flemington subdivision

on Birchs Rd in Lincoln

between 7am and 10pm

seven days a week.

The district council

received 72 submissions

on the application.

Twenty-three

submissions were in

opposition, two were

neutral and 47 supported

the development.

Earlier this year,

Selwyn Times reported

a group of Flemington

residents opposed the

proposed location for the

supermarket.

In May, after speaking

with some of the

residents who oppose the

supermarket, Flemington

developer Shane Kennedy

modified the plans.

“We’ve significantly

improved the external

design of the building to

reduce the visual scale

and improve the external

appearance, added more

trees to the car park and

the street frontage.”

• From page 1

The cancellation is also a

blow to Leeston businesses.

Crate and Barrel Leeston

owner Craig Bradford said

it is very disappointing as

it is a huge event for the

community each year.

“It’s the biggest show in

Canterbury because it is

the first one of the year.

It’s important for us out

in Leeston and also the

surrounding townships,”

he said.

Benny said the upside

is they will be even more

prepared for a better celebration

next year.

This year’s show would

have marked the 150th

anniversary of the show. It

is anticipated it would be

celebrated in October 2021,

said Benny.

Benny said the Ellesmere

would like to thank its

members, sponsors, exhibitors,

for their patience and

support.

Cats out of draft animal bylaw

• By Devon Bolger

CATS ARE unlikely to need to

be microchipped in the district.

The contentious issue took

another step when district councillors

voted to adopt a draft

animal control bylaw on the

condition rules around cats were

removed from it.

The draft as it was presented

did include provisions for the

mandatory microchipping and

desexing of cats.

District council staff will now

go back and remove the section

about cats from the draft before

it goes out for public consultation

next month.

If a large number of submitters

call for the rules around cats to

be included after

all, the decision

could be overturned.

The bylaw on

the keeping of

animals (other

than dogs),

poultry and bees

was presented

to a district council meeting last

week.

Councillor Grant Miller said

he cats should be left out of the

bylaw, as enforcement was nearly

impossible.

said.

“This is an opportunity when

we could use our skills with

other organisations, like the

SPCA, to create a document

which isn’t a bylaw but an education

process.”

Cr Murray Lemon agreed and

seconded the motion.

Miller said the cat owners in

the district generally do desex

and microchip their cats already.

of cats should be included in the

This was after a recommendation

from staff that they should

not be included due to concerns

around the ability to enforce the

rules.

As there is no national legislation

on the issue, the district

council has no ability to give

fines or fund enforcement action

compliance would have to be

Some of the rules relating to

• No person shall keep more

• No more than two beehives

shall be placed on a property in

Drink driver

found by police

slumped over

steering wheel

• By Devon Bolger

A MOTORIST in his early 30s,

over three times the legal alcohol

limit, was found slumped over the

steering wheel of his car early on

Saturday morning.

Senior Sergeant Dean Harker

said the driver, who lives in

the district, refused to get out

of the vehicle parked on

Springston-Rolleston Rd when

police arrived.

After officers got the man

out of the vehicle he was taken

to the Rolleston Police Station

where he recorded a reading of

1050mcg/L. The legal limit is

250mcg/L.

Harker said the man would not

tell police if he had been drinking

at an establishment before driving

but he had been drinking in his

car.

The motorist was one of six

people caught drink driving in

the district over the weekend.

About 80 per cent of them recorded

readings over 1000mcg/L,

Harker said.

The ages of the offenders range

from under 20 to mid-70s.

“There were really really

high readings, which is very

disappointing. It doesn’t seem like

the message is sinking in.”

Great week for trainer fighting cancer

• By Joshua Smith

LUMINOSITY’S recent win

at Addington Raceway capped

what can only be described as

a great week for trainer Bruce

Hutton.

The Greendale horseman has

been through a rough couple of

years with cancer and has been

given some positive news from

his specialist.

“I had a stem cell transplant

for lymphoma cancer in January,”

Hutton said.

“We had a really good report

and everything looks good. The

hematologist gave me a five-star

rating when I was talking to

him. All the tests are showing

that things are good.”

Hutton had previously

undergone chemotherapy

five years ago. But the cancer

resurfaced 18 months ago and

Hutton began a year long path to

undergo a stem cell transplant.

“I had a round of chemo about

five years ago and then I went

into remission,” Hutton said.

“I got a bit back 18 months ago

and it was a 12 month process

of treatments from there. I spent

three weeks in hospital in January

while they did the transplant.

You have to stay in an

immune environment because

your system is compromised.”

While Hutton has been

through a lot in the last five

years, he has a positive outlook

and is looking forward to the

future.

“The front window of your

car is bigger than your rear view

mirror for a reason, so you have

to look forward not backwards,”

he said.

“We are out to seeing the specialist

every six months now, so

at this stage it is all systems go.”

BETTER TIMES: Greendale trainer Bruce Hutton with promising trotter Luminosity.

Buoyed by the positive news,

Hutton was looking forward

to lining up his consistent

trotter Luminosity and he was

delighted when she recorded her

maiden victory.

“She is pretty royally bred, so

it always looks better if they can

get into the stud book with a

win to their name. We are pretty

pleased about that,” Hutton said.

Luminosity was bred by

Hutton, who co-owns her with

stable client Brent Smith.

“Brent Smith has been an owner

since I started training 30 years

ago and he has stuck with me

through thick and thin,” Hutton

said.

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology

(insects and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces

a new species found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column

Household ant a minor pest

WE HAVE approximately

44 ant species in New

Zealand, however, only a

quarter are endemic to our

shores.

Most of the other 33

introduced species are from

Australia and we can expect

to see more of their massive

1300 species here in the

future with milder winters

and hotter summers.

The black household ant

(Ochetellus glaber) is one

of these ants and was first

recorded in Whangarei in

1927, but by 1943 was well

established in Auckland.

It has slowly moved

south reaching Nelson

around 2005 and Christchurch

around 2013. The

species has been regularly

intercepted from Australia

and is often associated

with plant materials such

as wooden poles, fruits and

plants.

It is also found in China,

India, Japan, the United

States, Philippines, Lord

Howe Island, New Caledonia,

Norfolk Islands, New

Hebrides, Solomon Islands,

India and Réunion.

The worker ants are

brown or black in colour,

2-2.5mm in length and

have 12-segmented antennae.

Ochetellus glaber is an

arboreal nester and can

be observed forming long

trails up trees, fence-posts

and buildings, occasionally

coming inside houses.

The ants are omnivores,

feeding on honeydew

produced by aphids, mealy

bugs and scale insects, but

also dead animals, plants,

seeds and fat.

Although considered

a minor pest, it does not

sting but does have a

characteristic odour when

squashed.

Help design your space in

town centre reserve

Selwyn residents are being asked to help design proposed new community public spaces in the

redevelopment of Rolleston Reserve.

The proposals are part of the wider Rolleston town centre project, and over the past year we’ve

been consulting with the community about options for the reserve.

We’re now proposing to include a sensory garden and a youth space in the reserve, along

with open green space with new trees and paths. Consultation on these proposals is open till

Wednesday 21 October.

For the proposed youth space, the Selwyn Youth Council surveyed students at the district’s high

schools for initial ideas, which include a dance floor, outdoor climbing wall, parkour balls, and a

media space.

The sensory garden is planned to be a space that is accessible to everyone including those with

diverse needs. Students at Waitaha School helped with initial ideas, such as wheelchair-friendly

access, quiet spaces, scented flowers and colour used for wayfinding and paths.

The Council is keen to hear thoughts on these ideas for both the spaces, to help design spaces

everyone can fully enjoy and embrace as their own.

The Council is also consulting on proposed roading changes in the town centre. Hearings will be

held in November, if required, where people can present their submissions on both the roading

changes and those to the reserve, the youth space and sensory gardens.

For more information visit selwyn.govt.nz/rtsreserve

New Rolleston Drive intersection work beginning

Work to extend Markham Way and create a new intersection at Rolleston Drive and Dryden Avenue will

begin next week.

Work will begin at the Markham Way end of the extension on Monday 21 September and move towards

Rolleston Drive, with the new intersection as the final stage of construction.

The work is expected to be completed by February 2021, depending on the weather, or other work

restrictions due to Covid-19.

Rolleston Drive and Norman Kirk Drive will remain open throughout the upgrade, with short periods

where each street will be reduced to one lane. This will be done outside of peak hours and we will keep

users updated on this via the Council Facebook page, website and Council Call.

The site will be fenced and a fenced pedestrian access way will be in place from Rolleston Drive to

Rolleston School to ensure safe pedestrian access around the site.

The new intersection and extension of Markham Way will help with traffic flow into Rolleston, easing

congestion on Rolleston Drive, provide additional access to the new town centre and Selwyn Health

Hub and improve safety for pedestrians, particularly school pupils and families.

Thank you for your patience while we carry out this upgrade.

Opportunity for students to follow their dreams

The Council is offering Selwyn students support to follow their dreams and achieve.

Applications for the Council’s Tertiary Scholarships are open till the end of September. Scholarships of

up to $3000 are available for year 12 and 13 students who live and study in Selwyn and are planning

to undertake full-time post-secondary school education or training at a recognised New Zealand

university, polytechnic or training institution next year.

Scholarships will be available for students who have achieved outstanding success in academic, sports,

cultural, arts, social responsibility, or other areas, or have overcome barriers or hardships to achieve.

The scholarship provides payment towards fees and costs associated with buying books and

equipment required for their study or training.

Successful applicants are expected to be announced at the end of year school prize giving awards. To

find out more about the scholarships, including application forms, students can visit selwyn.govt.nz/

tertiaryscholarships.

NZDF connects to Selwyn

District wastewater network

The New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) and the Council have

signed an agreement enabling Burnham Military Camp to connect

to the Council’s wastewater network.

As part of the agreement, NZDF will build a new wastewater pump

station, pipeline and emergency storage tanks at the Burnham Military

Camp. Wastewater from the camp will be pumped to the Pines

Wastewater Treatment Plant on Burnham School Road. NZDF will

pass ownership of the pump and pipeline, once built, to the Council.

Construction on the pump station and pipeline will commence in

September, with commissioning expected in March next year.

NZDF will also make an upfront development payment for the

connection and will pay ongoing charges equivalent to the standard

sewerage targeted rates.

Until now, Burnham Military Camp has been treating and disposing

of its own wastewater using an oxidation pond and border dyke

irrigation system which had, in recent times, struggled to fully meet

the requirements of its resource consent.

Head of Defence Estate and Infrastructure Mark Brunton welcomed

the agreement. “I am delighted we have been able to reach an

agreement with Selwyn District Council that benefits Burnham

Camp, the wider community and the environment. It will secure

effective and reliable wastewater management for Burnham Military

Camp into the future, and take advantage of economies of scale to

achieve a higher level of treatment at Council’s state of the art Pines

wastewater treatment plant.”

Council Group Manager Infrastructure Murray Washington says

the agreement strengthens the important relationship between the

Council and New Zealand Defence Force.

“We’re pleased to support the community at Burnham Military Camp

through this agreement, which will help with the ongoing maintenance

and growth of the district’s wastewater networks. It is a good

example of the ongoing investment that NZDF makes into our district

and the partnership approach we take to working with them.”

SADD Students leading road safety in Darfield

Darfield students are leading the way to help make Selwyn roads safer.

SAFER September is a national SADD (Students against dangerous driving) initiative to provide an

opportunity for students to actively engage with their community, by spreading positive messages and

encourage road safety awareness.

Darfield High Schools’ Issy Kennedy and Emily White are among a team of SADD students helping keep

their school mates safe on the roads.

The team has made it their job to raise awareness about SADD and road safety within their school with

a variety of activities, Issy says.

“We have made a change to the way students and staff enter and exit the school by

encouraging them to take an alternative route. After school you’ll see us standing

outside the main entrance encouraging everyone to follow the chalk arrows that mark

the correct path to take when crossing the road. It has taken a while but everyone is

now seeing the benefits rather than seeing the route as an inconvenience.”

Over lockdown the team ran an online challenge testing students’ knowledge of road

safety and are holding a ‘dress up your door’ competition between classes to raise

awareness of SADD principles, Emily says.

“We have also planned an expo as part of Safer September to encourage the

students to interact and get to know the local emergency services and the Council,

SADD and Proactive Drive representatives. We plan on holding this event once Level

two restrictions are removed.”

On the roads

The New Zealand Transport Agency has advised that over the next four to six weeks,

construction works will be taking place on the roads either side of the Christchurch

Southern Motorway up to the Weedons Interchange with SH1.

Detours will be in place, and advisory signs are located in the affected areas giving advanced notice.

No graduation

ceremony for

Lincoln uni

students

LINCOLN University graduands

who had their ceremony

postponed earlier this year due

to Covid-19 will now miss out

altogether.

The university has decided to

cancel its graduation planned for

October 8.

Lincoln University acting

vice-chancellor Professor Bruce

McKenzie, said it was a decision

reached with a heavy heart and

after much deliberation.

The graduation was initially

postponed in April, with all students

receiving their parchments

through the mail.

“Having already postponed the

April ceremony we very much

wanted to provide our graduates

with an event recognising, and

celebrating their achievements.”

“However, there was just too

much uncertainty around what

Covid-19 alert level we would

be on at the time. There are also

currently risks associated with

holding such a sizeable event.

At this stage, the Lincoln

graduation ball is still going

ahead.

SPORT

Cometh the hour,

cometh the man

THE SAYING may well

have been the catchcry in

Southbridge’s 40-32 win over

Waihora in the Coleman Shield

final at Southbridge on Saturday.

All Blacks legend Dan Carter

was always going to be potentially

an ace card in his third match

this season for Southbridge, and

in many ways it proved to be.

Waihora led 24-22 at half-time

in what was always going to be a

tough contest.

But early in the second

half Carter scored a try and

landed the conversion to

give Southbridge the buffer it

needed to ease away from

Waihora.

Carter said he was elated to

win the shield, adding to what

has been a stellar career.

Southbridge’s Will

To the people of Hororata

This open letter is to present some important facts about the Hororata Hall and why its sale

should not be included to finance a community centre in the reserve.

The Hororata Hall was built in the 1890’s by local people on land donated by local

farmers and was managed by a trust. Other land adjacent to the Hall was also donated in

endowment to provide an income towards maintenance of the Hall. So, the Hall was, for

about 60 years, owned and maintained by the Hororata community and like the Church was

one of the cultural centres of Hororata.

In 1952 the community wanted to establish it as a war memorial with Honours Boards in

the Hall listing the names of the young Hororata men who had died in the First and Second

World Wars. This was common throughout New Zealand at that time. Central government

encouraged it by offering a subsidy of £5000 toward improvements of the hall. The Hororata

community raised a similar amount. They added a library and Plunket rooms.

However, to receive this subsidy they had to pass ownership of the Hall and land to the local

authority. That was the Selwyn County with Council yards, chambers and staff houses in

Hororata, so they were still ‘keeping it in the family’; the council were part of the community.

But when the Selwyn County merged with the Malvern County in 1963 the ownership went

with it. And, of course, now it is owned by the Selwyn District whose management are

often strangers, people who have come to Selwyn from other places and for whom this is just

another hall.

Previous councils have invested a little in the Hall over the years. In 1962 the Selwyn Council

paid £1600 to improve it and add a stage and supper room. In 1975 further improvements,

including a playcentre were completed, costing $27,000. The Malvern Council contributed

$14,403 and the community raised the rest. So, in brief, £1600 from Selwyn County in 11

years and $14,403 from Malvern in 26 years. Unfortunately, I do not have figures for the

Selwyn District’s contributions during its first 30 years.

But now, the Council’s value on the Hall and land (not including the endowment land) is

$400,000. The sale of the Hall will contribute to its intended replacement’s cost of (and the

figures are a little fluid) $4,500,000.

I admire what Go Hororata has achieved. They have accomplished an enormous amount

with hard work and some good fortune. Their event will always be weather vulnerable and

sometimes there will be cancellations, but no doubt they have built that into their planning.

What I fear is their aim is too ambitious, and if it can only be achieved by the loss of a

building that many other communities would envy, then I cannot support that aim. The

Hororata Hall is one of those rare survivors that represent the revivalist art movements at the

end of the Victorian Era. Like Mountfort’s Neo-Gothic was inspired by medieval buildings,

the Hall was designed by Seagar, an architect and builder, to echo the Pre-Renaissance

wooden buildings of England. With the wooden church, it is an important link to the

settlers of the 19th century.

Rural women want

commitment to rural

communities

Rural Women New Zealand

(RWNZ) has published

their manifesto calling for a

commitment to improving the

health and wellbeing of rural

families and enhancing the

resilience of rural communities.

“The general election season

is a perfect time for us to share

the challenges we see and

what actions we recommend

any government should take

in order to empower rural

communities,” says RWNZ

president Fiona Gower.

“RWNZ believes that the

social, cultural, environmental

and economic success of New

Zealand should be reflected in

rural communities and we have

been voicing this to decisionmakers

since 1925.

“All candidates need to show

a commitment to ensuring that

rural communities have equal

access to technology, education

and health services.

“It is vital that all rural

communities feel safe and

secure on the roads, in their

homes and around their

properties and RWNZ would

like to see clear action on this.

“Global influence and the

environment are also included

in the manifesto alongside

the call to ensure that rural

communities come first in

policy development.

“RWNZ has always actively

worked with decisionmakers

and ask that this

year’s candidates consider

our strategy for building

resilient rural communities

and assessing policy impacts,

as part of their work in

Parliament, should they be

elected,” says Ms Gower.

Boost to vegetable growers

A project to boost vegetable growers’ efforts to care

for the health of the environment while supplying fresh,

healthy food, has received $4.7 million in government

backing from the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI).

The funding adds to the $2.8 million already invested

by industry into Sustainable Vegetable Systems, a

four-year project, focused on improving crop nutrient

management for the growing of potatoes, onions,

brassicas, butternut squash, carrots, and leafy greens.

MPI is investing in the project from the Productive and

Sustainable Land Use package, which promotes farming

and growing practices that deliver more value and

improved environmental outcomes.

The project was established by Potatoes NZ, partnering

with Horticulture New Zealand and vegetable groups

Onions New Zealand, Vegetables New Zealand,

Processed Vegetables New Zealand, and NZ Buttercup

Squash, under their umbrella of the Vegetable Research

and Innovation Board.

“This project will give growers the ability to accurately

manage nutrient flows, while meeting demand for quality

produce, meaning better environmental outcomes,” said

Potatoes NZ CEO, Chris Claridge.

MPI’s Director for Land, Water and Climate Policy,

Charlotte Denny, said having robust tools to measure

their environmental impact will help growers operate

more efficiently, and reduce nitrate leaching.

“This is an important industry-led programme, and

the scientific data gathered will inform and help develop

decision tools for growers to support more sustainable

growing practices,” Charlotte Denny said.

Plant & Food Research is undertaking the work to

quantify and model nitrate leaching. The project will

engage with vegetable growers around New Zealand,

providing tools to help them apply effective nitrate

management techniques suited to

their land and operations.

The Sustainable Vegetable

Systems project will have nine

commercial field sites across

the country in Canterbury,

Hawke’s Bay, Horowhenua,

Waikato and Pukekohe as well

as trials at Plant & Food Research

facilities in Lincoln and Hawke’s

Bay.

Chris Claridge said this project will give

the vegetable growing sector improved tools

to estimate nitrate leaching, an area where

the sector is currently underserved.

“This project will enable growers to

assess which management techniques

will best reduce their risk of nitrate

leaching, so they can confidently make

changes in practice,” Chris Claridge said.

David Hadfield, Chair of the VR&I Board

says that the Board, and the vegetable product

groups it represents, strongly advocate for

science that supports vegetable growers

to build on their current knowledge, and

improve their monitoring and management

of nitrate leaching.

“This work will underpin the ability of

vegetable growers to keep producing fresh

healthy vegetables using the most sustainable

approaches,” David Hadfield said.

“Ultimately, this will ensure a more prosperous,

vibrant and sustainable New Zealand for many

generations to come.”

Public Notice

Notice of Council resolution on electoral

system and right to demand poll

Notice is given under section 28 of the Local Electoral Act 2001 that Selwyn District

Council resolved on 9 September 2020 to retain the First Past the Post electoral

system for the 2022 and 2025 triennial elections.

Electors of Selwyn District Council have a right to demand a poll at any time to

override the Council’s decision to use the First Past the Post electoral system.

If a valid demand for a poll is received by 22 February 2021, a poll will be held by

21 May 2021 on whether the First Past the Post or the Single Transferable Voting

electoral system will be used for the next two triennial elections (2022 and 2025).

If a valid demand for a poll is received after 22 February 2021, a poll will be held after

21 May 2021 with the outcome applicable for the 2025 and 2028 triennial elections.

A valid demand must be:

· made in writing

· signed by at least 5 percent of eligible electors of the Selwyn District Council. This

equates to 2,016 elector signatures

· delivered to Selwyn District Council, 2 Norman Kirk Drive, Rolleston, by 5pm,

Monday 22 February 2021 (for the outcome of the poll to apply to the 2022

triennial election of Selwyn District Council).

Every elector who signs a demand must also provide their full name and the address

for which they are qualified as an elector of Selwyn District Council.

What do you have to tell potential

buyers when selling your house?

When you’ve lived in a property for a

while it’s easy to forget some of its quirks.

You might be used to the fact that the

front gate doesn’t shut properly, or that

the bathroom windows need fixing. Any

potential buyers will be able to spot issues

like this when they inspect the property –

and can choose to fix them if they purchase

it. But it’s a lot harder for them to identify

other things you might have forgotten

about, like the fact that you didn’t bother

getting the appropriate consents from the

council when you built the deck 25 years

ago.

You might think the deck is fine, but you

need to front up about the consent issue,

not least because it’s the decent thing to do.

“When you’re selling a property you are

legally obliged to share all the relevant

information about it,” says the Real Estate

Agents Authority (REAA).

“If work has been done on the property

during your ownership, either by you or

someone else, the standard terms of the

sale and purchase agreement require the

seller to warrant that any legally required

permits or consents were obtained. If you

knowingly fail to disclose unconsented

works, you are in breach of contract. This

means there is a risk that the sale could fall

over or that you could run into problems

prior to settlement. Even worse, the buyer

could take you to court for breach of

warranty.”

Your first step should be to discuss the

issue with your licensed real estate agent

and your lawyer, Lampen-Smith says. They

are likely to advise that you are better off to

disclose anything unconsented, or to strike

out the applicable vendor warranties clause

in the sale and purchase agreement.

“Once the real estate agent is aware of the

situation, they are bound by their Code of

Conduct to disclose it to any prospective

buyers. If you tell them about the deck or

any other issues to do with the property,

but ask them not to tell anyone, they are

required to stop working for you.”

Similar disclosure issues can arise over

more sensitive matters. Some sellers worry

about whether or not to tell an agent or

prospective buyers about an issue that

doesn’t relate to the physical state of the

property – such as it being the scene of a

murder, suicide or violent crime.

Here, deciding what to disclose is less

straightforward, Lampen-Smith says.

“The REAA advises agents to take a

cautious approach and to consider each

situation on its facts, while recognising the

individual circumstances.”

The High Court has said that a more

recent event, especially one that might

have gained some notoriety in the local

neighbourhood, may have more bearing on

a prospective buyer’s view of the property

than a historic one. The location of the

event (whether it took place in the grounds

of the property or inside the house) and

whether the property has been lived in since

it happened, as well as the likely reaction

of potential buyers, should also be taken

into account. The death of someone from

natural causes at the property does not

need to be disclosed, as this is considered

an everyday occurrence.

“If you are in this situation as a seller, it’s

best to discuss what to do with your real

estate agent.”

“They cannot tell prospective buyers

without your consent – and if they decide

that a sensitive issue should be disclosed

but you don’t agree, then they must cease

to act for you.”

Whatever the situation, whether it’s

unconsented work or a tragic event, honesty

is the best policy. Talk to your agent about

how the disclosure will be handled. There

is no need to advertise the information

or tell everyone who wanders along to an

open home, but potential buyers who have

indicated an interest in making an offer

must be told.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

The complete picture

A house true to its specifications is

Whitehouse Builders’ showhome at The

Borough in Rolleston.

This 222sqm four bedroom showhome

possesses all the prerequisites of a new

home in an affordable price range, making it

suitable for families through to couples and

individuals.

Effect is gained with a 2.7 metre high stud

and coved ceilings throughout the wellappointed

living area. Double doors open

from a comfortable lounge to the family

room where a wall creates a personalised

dining, within the open plan living area. A

study nook is tucked in on the other side

of the living room. Sliders lead out from

the living, dining and master bedrooms to

patios for easy access to the outdoors.

A walk-in pantry, engineered stone bench

tops, Bosch oven, cook top, dishwasher, 900

canopy range hood and tiled splashback, are

all features incorporated into the kitchen.

The master bedroom has two walk-in

robes. There is a walk-in tiled shower,

double wall hung vanity, heated towel rail,

heater and a toilet in the ensuite.

Serving the smaller bedrooms, the main bathroom

has a wall hung vanity, fitted bath, full one metre square

shower, heated towel rail and a heater. The separate toilet

also has a small hand basin with mirror so visitors do not

need to use the main bathroom.

There is loads of storage in this house, in the coat

cupboard conveniently located at the front door, hall

cupboard, double robes in the smaller bedrooms, and

double garage where there is a 4,800 metre wide door.

The home is heated by a heat pump in the living area

and wall heater in the hallway. However, when building

with Whitestone Builders, clients are able to choose the

type of heating they want as well as where this is to be

located within their home.

Clad in brick veneer with double glazed aluminium

joinery, a Colorsteel corrugated roof and exposed

aggregate concrete driveway, this home sits well on its

718sqm section.

The price to build this showhome is $382,000 with

Whitehouse Builders Ltd offering house and land

packages (based on this house design), starting at

$585,000. This figure includes a section priced at

$190,000. With a finished independent valuation at

around $645,000, this represents good value for the buyer.

Whitehouse Builders’ showhome at Faringdon’s The

Borough is located at 52 Lanner Drive in Rolleston. It is

open for viewing Wednesdays to Sundays, 12noon until

4pm, or for viewing by appointment.

Show homes

the ultimate way to shop around

Across the selwyn district, we are blessed with an

extensive array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show homes

to demonstrate their workmanship,

display innovative design ideas and

present a snapshot into a new and

luxurious lifestyle, featuring all the

latest in materials, fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a way

nothing else can. You can absorb the

ambiance they present and admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology.

You can ask questions, take notes

and compare. You can see at a glance

features you would love to emulate or

would avoid when building your home.

Best of all, you ;will see the building

companies’ attention to detail.

Show homes are the perfect way to get

a good idea of pricing, discover good

quality and value, learn about superior

use of space, future-proofing, ongoing

maintenance and long-term returns.

So what are you waiting for? Check

out our maps, grab a notepad and

pencil and begin the exciting project of

building your own home.


A large, quality home sited in a private and established

5021m 2 park-like se ting in the sought after Claremont

Estate on the boundary of Christchurch City.

The home features four bedr oms (master with

en suite and walk-in robe), open-plan kitchen, dining

and living along with formal dining, lounge and

conservatory. Great ind or outd or flow to a large

sheltered deck set in sprawling lawns and easy care
