‘Shovel ready’ roading package

denied Government funding

• By Devon Bolger

THE DISTRICT has missed

out on millions of dollars in

Government ‘shovel ready’

projects funding.

The district council’s application

was for a roading package

that would bring forward a range

of pavement renewals that had

been deferred as well as upgrade

125km of road in areas across the

district.

The works

spread across

the district

council’s

2500km maintained

roading

network and

includes works

Sam

Broughton

on both higher

volume arterial

roads close to

Christchurch

and those in the rural areas of

the Canterbury Plains serving

dairy and other primary production

activities.

Mayor Sam Broughton said the

decision was “very disappointing.”

District council asset manager

transportation Andrew Mazey

said the district council did not

receive a specific reason why the

proposal was rejected.

“We were told the value of the

•HAVE YOUR SAY: What are your

views on the council missing out on

Government ‘shovel ready’ funding.

Email matt.slaughter@starmedia.kiwi

submitted projects was much

greater than the funding available,

so some projects were not

able to be included,” he said.

The fund received 1924 submissions

across New Zealand

and funding was agreed for

about 150 projects.

The proposal the district

council submitted to Crown

Infrastructure Partners, which

is managing the funding, did

not include a specific number of

jobs the roading package would

create.

THAT’S A big blow on page

1 today – the Government’s

‘no’ to the district council’s

bid for $13.5 million of

‘shovel ready’ funding.

Given what is happening

with money being sloshed

around up north, I would

have thought Selwyn, one

of New Zealand’s fastest

growing districts, would have

secured a reasonable chunk

of ‘shovel ready’ money.

‘Shovel ready’ is about

getting the economic wheels

turning. Job creation is vital.

Selwyn’s application seems

a bit short on job creation

details but neither the council

or Government will say if

this was a factor.

Said Infrastructure

Minister Shane Jones: “Job

creation was one of a number

of criteria the applications

needed to meet and not the

sole consideration.”

But I suspect it was a big

consideration.

POLICE MAY have broken an

organised operation which has

been stealing utes and pick-ups

to on-sell or break down for

parts.

Senior Sergeant Stephen

McDaniel said some of these

were stolen

from the

district, others

were stolen in

Christchurch

and across

Canterbury.

Armed

police have

raided

properties in

Oxford and Rangiora in recent

weeks, the latest last week.

Eight stolen Toyota Hiluxs

and Land Cruisers have been

recovered. Police also found

firearms and cannabis at the

properties, and a stolen trailer.

As well as the Hiluxs and

Land Cruisers, police are also

focusing on a spate of Ford

Couriers which have been

targeted as part of Operation

360.

Nineteen Couriers, made

between 2000 and 2006, have

been stolen in Canterbury in the

past six months.

Senior Sergeant Stephen

McDaniel said three people

have been arrested and charged

with theft, cultivating cannabis

and processing firearms

offences.

More arrests are likely, he said.

Said McDaniel of the vehicles

recovered: “They’re being

rebirthed. So, legitimate plates

and numbers are being put on

them to enable them to be sold.

Others are used and stripped for

parts.”

BUSTED: Eight

stolen Toyota Land

Cruisers and Hiluxs

were recovered

during police raids

last month and

police are also

looking for stolen

Ford Couriers and

their parts. ​

He said there was a demand

for the vehicles and parts.

He said police were armed

when they carried out the

raids but were met with no

resistance.

McDaniel said the occupants

of the properties they searched

are not gang members.

‘We thought

we had a really

strong case’

• From page 1

“Our view at the time was that

this project would stimulate the

industry at a time of uncertainty,

retaining certainty for existing

contractor staff and adding new

hires where necessary, but the

exact number of new hires was not

possible to calculate,” said Mazey.

Infrastructure Minister Shane

Jones was a part of the decisionmaking

process.

“Job creation was one of a

number of criteria the applications

needed to meet and not the sole

consideration,” he said.

Said Broughton: “We worked really

hard and staff didn’t get their

Easter break to meet what was

asked for from the Government. It

wasn’t something that we entered

into lightly.”

Broughton said the council

shortened the list of projects down

to one they thought was the best

fit.

“We thought we had a really

strong case that was going to

provide jobs, be able to be implemented

immediately and help with

the response to Covid-19.”

As part of the Government’s

response to Covid-19, it asked the

public and private infrastructure

sector impacted by the pandemic

to submit ‘shovel ready’ projects

for funding consideration.

ELECTION 2020

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Selwyn candidates: Bios and views

Nicola

Grigg,

National –

Grew up on

a sheep and

beef farm in

Mt Somers,

went to school

in Christchurch

before

studying journalism at the New

Zealand Broadcasting School.

First job was in a shearing

shed. Since then has worked

as a journalist, communications

manager in big tourism

businesses, Parliamentary press

secretary to Simon Bridges

and Sir Bill English under the

last National-led government.

Prior to beginning full-time

campaigning, was working as

a portfolio manager at New

Zealand Trade and Enterprise,

responsible for the trade development

of a wide range of

Canterbury-based exporters,

primarily in the agricultural and

manufacturing sectors.

Wants to be the MP for Selwyn

because of “our ambitious, fastgrowing

region is facing challenges

that need an experienced,

capable representative to help

tackle.”

“Parliament needs more rural

representation - particularly

rural women. While my morals

and convictions are deeply

rooted in my rural upbringing, I

am also a socially-liberal, modern

urbanite - so I bring a broad

insight to a number of facets of

New Zealand society and community.”

Priorities for Selwyn:

• Support local businesses by

fighting hard for Governmentfunded

construction and infrastructure

projects such as the

rebuild and repair of a number

of our schools, as well as the

four-laning of SH1 from Rolleston

to Ashburton – a $1 billion

project that will keep approximately

2000 people in work.

•Fight for our local farmers

impacted by punitive regulations

and ensure legislation is backed

by science and best international

practice so these family businesses

can be supported to farm

their way to better environmental

outcomes.

• The preservation and

conservation of our natural environment.

I will work constructively

with local authorities and

community groups to support

projects and initiatives to help

mitigate the impacts of climate

change.

Three main characteristics an

MP needs to serve their constituents:

• Genuine in their desire to

serve people, to work with them

and for them to help solve their

problems, improve their lives,

and those of their families and

communities

• To have a relentless

commitment to the role, their

electorate and, above all, their

constituents.

• Be available and accessible to

their constituents.

Cannabis Legalisation and

Control Bill: I will be voting

against this referendum. It is

a poorly-thought out proposal

that does not go anywhere near

far enough to address the social

impacts of cannabis legalisation,

not least mental health. Not

only that but, unlike the End

of Life Choice, Flag and MMP

referendum, the Bill has not been

through Parliament or the scrutiny

of a Select Committee so the

public is being asked to vote on a

law that we don’t even know the

final details of. I’ve tried it once

as a student in my early 20s and

have never used it since.

End of Life Choice Act: Will

be voting for the End of Life

Choice Act 2019. The legislation

contains substantial safeguards.

This is a matter of freedom

of choice and I believe that

if, by offering a person with a

terminal illness the choice – thus

removing the terrible fear

many of us have of dying – then

that is the just and humane thing

to do.

Abe

O’Donnell,

Greens –

Finished

high school

last year and

is studying towards

a Bachelor

of Law

and Bachelor

of Arts, majoring in political science

and international relations,

minoring in nutrition at the University

of Canterbury.

Campaigning for the party

vote this election to help return

the Green Party to Government

so “we can reach an Aotearoa

where everyone thrives, the

climate is stable and nature is

protected.’’

Three priorities for Selwyn:

• Support farmers to transition

to organic plant production to

ensure jobs remain after the food

revolution.

• Embed civics education

in schools and make 16 the

minimum voting age to enhance

democracy.

• Initiate a food subsidy and

levy system so that fewer people

get food-related chronic diseases.

Three main characteristics

an MP needs to serve their

constituents:

• Fairness

• Transparency

• Accountability

Cannabis Legalisation and

Control Bill:

Voting yes. I have never used

cannabis. I don’t consume any

type of harmful drug and I plan

on never doing so.

End of Life Choice Act:

Voting yes. Everyone should be

free to choose and do whatever

they like as long as they are not

harming anyone else, are of an

appropriate age and are aware of

the consequences.

Wednesday October 7 2020 Selwyn Times

Wants to be MP for Selwyn

to make a difference as an independent

and support the recovery

from the impacts of Covid-19.

“As an independent candidate

I do not have to align with party

polices and I will work with all

parties, MPs and government for

the benefit of expanding Selwyn.”

Three priorities for Selwyn

are:

Health – Advocate for mental

health services to be provided

locally iand reduce the cost of

dental healthcare.

Education – Provide free

tertiary education for all Selwyn

residents young and old to retrain

our workforce for the post

Covid-19 world, which will also

support our tertiary sector.

Water – Improve the quality of

drinking water and clean up our

rivers by actively supporting local

farmers.

Three main characteristics

an MP needs to serve their constituents:

Open – Be honest, do not lie

and take personal responsibility

for mistakes

Considerate – Listen to constituents

and support their views

Objective – Achieving policy

aims effectively and on time

Cannabis Legalisation and

Control Bill: Likely to vote yes.

Legalising recreational cannabis

will be able to better control

the quality of supply. There needs

to be robust testing for driving

and industries that involve operating

machinery .

I last used cannabis in 1986

when taking my finals at university

and I passed with honours!

I do not currently use cannabis

medicinally or otherwise.

End of Life Choice Bill: Will

probably vote yes. My view is that

we should all have the choice to

die with dignity. I can confirm

that I will probably be voting yes

in this referendum.

Has two adult children and

lives near Lincoln with wife Rebecca

and seven horses, dog, two

cats and kune kune pigs.

“In the last two years I’ve campaigned

relentlessly for David

Seymour’s End of Life Choice

Act. This was underpinned

by an in-depth interview with

Newstalk ZB’s Chris Lynch

which I’m proud to say created

an explosion of interest in this

important issue.”

Three priorities for Selwyn

are:

Implement ACT’s five-point

costed plan for our economic

recovery, including tax cuts,

lowering debt and returning to

surplus sooner.

Repeal the Firearms Legislation

Act, including the threat of a

firearms “register” .

Support hard working rural

people, which includes replacing

the Resource Management Act.

Three main characteristics an

MP needs to serve their constituents:

Provide easy access and communication

for the Selwyn community.

Show the persistence and determination

already demonstrated

by David Seymour and Brooke

van Velden when they pushed

through the EOLC Act.

Make decisions based on ACT

Party principles of respecting the

freedoms and rights of the individual.

The freedom of speech so

hard fought by previous generations

should be protected at all

costs.

Cannabis Legalisation and

Control Bill: Likey to vote yes.

“Anything is better than the status

quo. Seizing gang assets and

reducing their income is a huge

benefit in the battle for a safe

country for our citizens.”

Yes, I have tried it. No, I’m not

a current user.

End of Life Choice Bill: The

EOLC offers people like me, who

live with terminal cancer, the

comfort of knowing that we can

choose a death with dignity, that

reflects the life we have led. That

choice should be afforded all NZers

who fit the strict criteria such

as being mentally competent and

within six months of death.

· Create and keep jobs in

Selwyn to ensure our people and

communities thrive.

· Support for small businesses,

schools, primary industries and

rural communities.

· Ensure our growth is supported

with good infrastructure

and smart planning.

Three main characteristics an

MP needs to serve their constituents:

· Hard working and committed.

· A strong advocate for the

region, its industries and issues.

· Available for you

Cannabis Legalisation and

Control Bill: The Bill’s main

purpose is to reduce cannabisrelated

harm to individuals,

families/whānau and communities.

I don’t think our current system

works. Voting yes will ensure

ELECTION 2020 5

that we can regulate the use of

marijuana to better manage

health impacts and minimise the

harm to our communities

I tried cannabis a long time

ago, I didn’t enjoy it and I don’t

use it.

End of Life Choice Act: I

believe that people who are suffering

from terminal illnesses

should have the option of a dignified

death on their own terms. I

will be supporting the End of Life

Choice Act.

ELECTION 2020

New Conservative’s Policies offer real

hope to New Zealanders from all walks

of life. With income splitting and the first

$20,000 housing tax free, investing in

housing, hospitals, and education. With

great strategies for economic recovery and

belief in New Zealanders who are very capable

at overcoming obstacles in life with

good old “can do” attitudes to life.

My three priorities for Selwyn are:

•Supporting Farmers- Water storage

•Rural Medical support including Mental

Health

•Supporting our Youth

Cannabis Legalisation and Control Bill

To me cannabis is having a devastating

affect on our youth and families – destroying

lives. It is a gateway drug that is way

more potent today than ever before. I will

be voting no

No I’ve never used it

End of Life Choice Act: Euthanasia is a

dangerous thing to bring into any society

and sends a very loud message to our

youth and others that if life gets tough –

you can opt out! life is expendable. Our

young people need hope and they need

to be valued and encouraged – I believe euthanasia

sends the wrong message.

I will vote no.

Drugs a factor in Selwyn road deaths

• By Matt Slaughter

DRUGS HAVE been a factor

in eight road deaths in Selwyn

since 2017.

Latest figures obtained by the

Selwyn Times show of the 28

deaths on the district’s roads in

this time period, eight involved

drugs.

Constable

Daniel Ingram

has seen drug

driving lead

to road deaths

first hand.

He said Tai

Daniel Ingram

Tarulata Dixon,

a mother of

two from the

district, died when Daryl

John Price drove onto the

wrong side of the road and hit

her vehicle at the intersection

of Sandy Knolls Rd and

West Coast Rd, near West

Melton last year. He had

methamphetamine, cannabis

and alcohol in his system.

Price pleaded guilty to

manslaughter and will appear

for sentencing in November.

There have been 17 people

stopped by police and charged

with drug driving offences

in the district since 2017, an

average of 0.5 offences a

month.

Most people were caught in

followed by cannabis, stimulants

like methylphenidate and

MDMA, other drugs, and

sedatives.

Sergeant Harrison McLennan,

who is on the Canterbury

police’s impairment team, said

motorists who are suspected to

have drugs in their system are

taken back to police stations for

a Compulsory Impairment test.

During these, a light is shone

in their eyes, they are made to

stand on one leg and place one

foot in front of the other and

walk in a straight line. If they

fail two or all of these tests they

are required to take a blood test

to show if they are under the

influence of drugs.

Senior Sergeant Dean Harker

said in spite of the district’s

police focusing more on drug

driving in the last few years

and carrying out more tests on

motorists, alcohol continues

to be the biggest factor in road

deaths and crashes there.

“The majority of the ones that

I’ve seen since I’ve been in here

[Rolleston Police Station] since

November, the majority have

been alcohol-related.”

Selwyn Times reported last

week 312 people have been

charged with drink driving

offences in Selwyn in the last

three years.

It comes as the focus for

Canterbury police this month

is on clamping down on drink

drivers.

More than

66,000 people

live in distict

THE DISTRICT’S population has

topped 66,000 residents.

Statistics New Zealand has

released its latest revision of population

figures for different regions

using data from the 2018 census

and post census survey.

The new figures show the district’s

population was 66,300 as at

June 30, 2019, growing by 4.7 per

cent over the previous year.

Previous estimates had the

population at 65,600 but this has

increased by 700 following the latest

revision. The figures also show

that from 2013-19 the district

grew by an average of 6 per cent

a year, adding around 3,300 new

residents annually.

That confirms the district among

the fastest growing in the country

over that time, a little behind

Queenstown Lakes District which

grew by an average 7.1 per cent.

The district remains the third

largest territorial authority area

in the South Island by population,

behind Christchurch City

(387,700) and Dunedin City

(132,300).

Data from the census also

shows 11,910 people have come

from across the globe and settled

in Selwyn.

They make up 19.85 per cent

of the 59,979 people living in

the district who stated their

birthplace.

You’ve got a lot to gain

There are many things to consider when

making the decision to move into a

lifestyle village. Everyone has different

requirements, whether it be a true community

atmosphere with an inclusive social scene, or

be situated in a new suburb where everything

you need is close by, or well-designed quality

home which supports and caters to all aging

requirements. Whatever your fancy, it’s rather

easy to see Woodcroft Estate as your new

home. “Our residents are better off in every

way,” says Manor Group CEO Adam Yates.

“Here, they enjoy a warm, safe and relaxing

environment within a friendly community,

while the onsite manager looks after any

concerns or maintenance issues. “All those

jobs you had to do to maintain your old house

are taken care of by the village staff. “They

manage any repairs and maintenance to your

home, looking after the gardens and lawn

mowing, providing security, lighting and even

washing windows.” But there is something

even more special about Woodcroft Estate.

A model of home ownership that

benefits you more

“Our residents are better off financially”

says Adam. “Our Next Generation model is

designed to be much fairer than traditional

models, allowing residents to receive the

capital gain when the unit is sold, less a

small fee. Our aim is to free our residents

from their worries, while residents get the

financial freedom that comes from retaining

and building on their equity.” The Next

Generation Model means you have choice.

Whether you gift your chosen charity, leave

a legacy to your grandchildren through

contributing to their education or first

home, the choice is in your hands.

Life is for living

For those who have already made the move

to Woodcroft Estate – you’ll meet likeminded

people who are living life to the

full. Woodcroft Estate residents have never

been happier – residing comfortably in the

fast growing and vibrant new township of

Rolleston – where a library and community

centre are close by. There is a swimming

pool and two medical centres, as well as two

supermarkets. There are even hearing and eye

specialists! Plenty of cafes to meet friends,

and delicious bakeries for that morning tea –

everything you need to feel right at home.

Feral cat problem in Doyleston

• By Devon Bolger

FERAL CATS are becoming

a problem in Doyleston

and residents are calling for

something to be done.

Resident Kala Teale said the

number of feral cats she has seen

in the community is increasing

and she has counted more than

25 at one time.

She and others in Doyleston

say they appear to being “adopted”

by a resident. The cats were

having their own litters making

the problem worse.

Teale said she had approached

the resident.

“She is very reluctant to acknowledge

there is a problem. A

number of us had contacted the

SPCA and Cat Protection and

they were unable to assist,” she

said.

Teale has also complained to

the district council, which says it

is a SPCA matter.

She also said her cats have

been attacked by the feral ones.

“Our dog is quietly natured

and these cats have been caught

taking her food from her bowl.

We are now feeding our dog

inside.

“It’s very frustrating that we

are responsible cat owners and

we have no support from anyone

with our ongoing cat issue.”

Doyleston community committee

member Brian Hooper

said the issue with feral cats has

been ongoing for about five years.

“It seems to be primarily

coming from one property. It is

getting a little bit beyond a joke

now. Her heart is in the right

place, she wants to look after

the cats but you’ve got to control

them.”

He said the cats are causing

trouble in the community by entering

people’s homes and going

through rubbish bins.

“We’ve physically seen them,

they open the red bins and drag

the food out.”

The person who has been

accused of having the feral cats

refused to talk to the Selwyn

Times.

Teale and Hooper said they

would like to see the inclusion of

mandatory microchipping and

desexing of cats in the district

council’s new animal control

bylaw.

Provisions around cats were

not included in the draft bylaw

that went out for public consultation

on Monday.

District council regulatory

manager Billy Charlton said

they received a call about the feral

cat issue in Doyleston about

18 months ago.

“Animal welfare, including the

welfare of cats is the responsibility

of the SPCA and we refer all

questions around animal welfare

to them, which was what we did

in this case,” he said.

New motorway

signage

in pipeline

• By Devon Bolger

IMPROVEMENTS TO the

signage on the Weedons

overbridge near the Southern

Motorway will be made soon.

It comes after Weedons resident

Gary Doyle made a complaint

about health and safety about the

overbridge.

A New Zealand Transport

Agency spokeswoman said: “The

designs have been finalised with

modifications to the signage and

road marking in response to a

nearby landowner’s concerns.”

An order for the manufacture of

the signs was placed on September

11, the spokeswoman said.

“The Southern Motorway stage

2 team hope to get these signs in

place and work completed soon.”

Doyle told the Selwyn Times in

July that if you are travelling down

the overbridge towards Lincoln,

there is a roundabout sign that

shows a road going straight, and

one to the right.

What the sign does not show is

a section of Weedons Rd, where

Doyle lives, that connects to the

left of the roundabout.

“Anyone coming down to the

roundabout is not expecting to

have someone slowing right down,

virtually to a stop, to make a very

hard left-hand turn to get onto

that road,” he said.

Rolleston Drive/Dryden Avenue intersection works

From 9am Friday 9 October to 7pm Sunday 11 October one lane of Rolleston Drive will be closed from just south of Dryden Avenue to the

Norman Kirk Drive intersection as part of the work on the new Dryden Avenue, Rolleston Drive, Markham Way intersection. There will be a

reduced speed limit and stop/go controllers in place to manage the traffic around the work site.

Please consider using alternative routes such as using the Weedons Interchange, to avoid delays on this section of road. Thank you for

your patience while we carry out this work.

motorists to slow down near horses

• By Devon Bolger

RECKLESS drivers are making

it increasingly difficult for Judy

Nahkies to continue one of her

favourite past times, horse riding.

The Dunsandel resident

frequently rides around the

township with her 23-year-old

daughter Melissa.

But lately the pair are noticing

fewer and fewer drivers slowing

down as they go past.

“I have lived here for over 30

years and the roads are getting

increasingly busy. We’ve had

quite a few incidents where

people have just not slowed down

at all.”

About a month ago, there was a

particularly bad incident, Nahkies

said.

“A big stock and trailer unit

zoomed past us on a gravel road

and we weren’t in a position to

cross as he’d come around a bit

of a blind corner.

“We got swamped in a big dust

cloud. Fortunately my daugher

was quick enough to get off

her horse. My pony just totally

freaked out, she hit the fence, she

hit Melissa’s horse, somehow I

managed to stay onboard but it

was just really scary.”

Nahkies said she understands

that people think they should

not ride on the road but she has

been doing so for more than 30

years.

“I was really angry because

not only did the driver not slow

down but when he was beside

us, he planted his foot on the accelerator

and roared off.

“It just was an awful thing. I

couldn’t identify the truck. People

just do ridiculous things.”

Melissa has experienced people

deliberately doing skids on shingle

roads to spray up stones.

Her aim is to promote more

awareness for drivers on what

they should be doing around

horses, Nahkies said.

“I don’t think the behaviour

is malicious, I think its a lack of

awareness.

“Slow down, move as far across

the road as you possibly can and

allow space like you would if

someone was on a bike.”

District council transportation

asset delivery manager

Mark Chamberlain said roading

incidents, where drivers are not

taking care should be directed to

the police.

“We do receive requests on occasion,

usually to install warning

signs, and we have received two

requests in the past year.

“The warning signs are to

encourage drivers to slow down

and be aware of the hazard that

horses can pose to other road

users,” he said.

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Family harm is a high priority for police

Area response manager

Senior Sergeant Dean

Harker talks about police

activity in the district

OVER THE last few months we

are starting to see an increase

in the reports of family harm

incidents.

This could be put down to

a number of things including

Covid pressures, financial

pressures, uncertainty around

employment.

Over the next few issues I

will be explaining family harm.

This will include, what is family

harm, what is family violence,

what is a police safety order,

what is a protection order.

Family harm is responsible for

about 17 per cent of priority calls

for police service and about 40

per cent of police time.

The New Zealand Crime and

Safety Survey (2014) identified

76 per cent of family violence is

not reported.

Family harm

Family harm encapsulates a

holistic view of the issues occurring

within families and their

ensuing detrimental effects.

Family violence is a subset of

family harm which includes

physical, sexual or psychological

abuse within family relationships.

There may be behaviour that

is coercive or controlling and

causes cumulative harm.

Family harm is a high priority

for police and reducing the

impact of family harm episodes

is a key police priority. Family

harm can be a single episode or a

Dean Harker

Selwyn Police

number of episodes forming a

behaviour or series of events, an

act of violence is often an escalation

of an ongoing pattern of

coercion and control.

There are wide reaching

societal consequences of family

harm including crime. Poor

physical and mental health and

poverty.

When police attend family

harm events they aim to:

• Slow and eventually stop the

family harm cycle/cumulative

harm across generations.

• Reduce serious harm such

as the use of physical violence,

sexual abuse and child abuse

and neglect.

• Reduce family harm-related

deaths (homicides and other

related offences and suicides).

When investigating a family

harm investigation

Police will provide an

effective response to family

harm which involves:

• Taking an “eyes wide open”

approach to all family harm

investigations, recognising that

early intervention helps to stop

and prevent family harm

• Being culturally responsive

• Ensuring all parties are kept

safe including victims, children

and police.

• Taking action with predominant

aggressors/ offenders

through a prompt and comprehensive

response.

• Working with partners as

part of a multi-agency response.

If you have concerns about

members of your family,

neighbours of witness a family

harm event please inform police.

Be safe and feel safe.

Reporting family harm

events can be done in a

number of ways.

•Phone 111 when you need

immediate help with a lifethreatening

or time–critical

emergency

•By phoning 105 – when no

one is injured or in danger,

there is no serious risk to

people or property, the crime

isn’t still happening. - By

reporting online at 105.police.

• Or by calling into your

nearest local police station.

• By Jonny Turner

DRIVER Samantha Ottley

pulled off a miraculous win

with Bonnie Boy after being

jolted out of her sulky and going

within millimetres of crashing to

Forbury Park track on Thursday

night.

Ottley was facing the prospect

of being thrown out of her cart

and amongst a line of oncoming

horses when a tightening of runners

racing in to the first bend

started to flip her cart sideways.

As her disaster approached, the

Canterbury reinswoman hoped

she would somehow be able to

avoid what would have been an

ugly and terrifying scene.

Ottley got her wish, but admitted

she had no idea quite what

saved her.

“I don’t really know how I got

back in, it happens quick,” she

said.

“I am sore on my side, so I

must have really strained to get

back in. But let’s just say I am

really pleased that I did.”

After avoiding catastrophe,

winning race 4 was not at the

forefront of Ottley’s mind.

Instead, she was calming her

nerves, which had just been fully

tested.

“At the time I got back in the

cart and around the first bend I

was taking some deep breathes

and thought okay, I’m safe now.”

Once Ottley and Bonnie Boy

composed themselves it was not

long before they were heading

around the field to take the lead

from the favourites To Ri Caitlin

and Mark Hurrell.

Though it did not seem like the

front was there for the taking, a

fired up Bonnie Boy soon made

sure it was

“The front wasn’t really there,

but the horse latched on and I got

up next to Mark,” Ottley said.

“I was hoping he would get a

neck in front and then start to

relax.

“But the horse had other ideas.

Win after near crash

MIRACLE: Sam Ottley brings Bonnie Boy back to the

Forbury Park birdcage after a win on Thursday night.

“He has won his other two

races in front, so he does love it

out there bowling along.”

A home straight battle loomed

for Bonnie Boy as he turned the

corner with the To Ri Caitlin

ready to come off his back and

pounce.

But the 7yr-old dug deep to

pull off the most incredible of

comeback victories.

Bonnie Boy is trained by

Anne-Marie Best, who is in the

process of moving her stables

from Fairhall, near Blenheim, to

Canterbury.

Once in a decade make over

for district’s rule book

People in Selwyn can now read and have their say on the Proposed District Plan, which is open for

consultation until 5pm on Friday 4 December.

The District Plan sets the rules for what people can do on their properties and what needs resource

consent, and must be reviewed every 10 years.

Mayor Sam Broughton says the new plan will make huge strides in preparing the district for the future.

“This is an important move for Selwyn. The District Plan matters, because it impacts all our lives and

how we live, work and play in the district. Most of the current plan has been in operation since 2008.

Since then we’ve seen massive changes and we need a new plan that is not only up to date with the

new world we live in, but ready to take us through the next decade.”

The new plan aims to simplify the rules, make it easier to find them and shifts the focus to what you

can do.

The proposed plan includes rules to focus residential development in and around our existing

townships. It allows more housing types in urban areas and removes the requirement that only

family members can live in a family flat.

It proposes reducing the density of houses allowed in part of the Outer Plains, to ensure land is

retained for rural production, and tighter rules around businesses in residential and rural areas.

Daytime noise rules would run from 7am–10pm and sky glow rules would reduce light pollution,

in particular creating dark-sky zones in areas of the high country, the coast and around the West

Melton Observatory.

You can read the summary consultation document Because it matters at Council libraries and

service centres, or online at selwyn.govt.nz/districtplanreview, or search your address and see how

the rules affect your property at selwyn.govt.nz/proposedeplan.

Council planning staff will also be holding drop-in sessions to answer your questions.

A dance of friendship and Indonesian culture

Hand in hand, dressed in colourful traditional Indonesian costumes, members of Lincoln University’s

Indonesian Club will take to the CultureFest stage to dance.

Club founder Yeni Yeni says their dance will reflect coming together and represent some of Indonesia’s

34 provinces.

“This year we want to perform a dance showing friendship. We want to be a friend of kiwis and dance

together with the audience.”

Each costume worn by the performers comes from a different province in Indonesia.

The Indonesian Club, which has 23 members, was started by Yeni and a friend in December to

recognise and promote Indonesian culture at Lincoln University and help new Indonesian students feel

welcome and settle.

“I’m so happy finally we can have a club and introduce our culture and be a part of the Lincoln

community. It is very important for us to be represented at LUSA.”

Yeni came to Lincoln University a year and a half ago on a

scholarship for her masters. It was a dream come true and allowed

her to bring her son with her, she says.

“Not only did I benefit from the scholarship, but also my son. He

can learn about education, different culture and language here and

respect for other people.”

While Yeni misses the large variety of fruit that grows in Indonesia,

she has found a new favourite in our feijoa.

“I don’t get that back at home, I will miss feijoa from New Zealand.”

Meet us in the country

A celebration of spring in Selwyn is kicking off next week.

‘Meet us in the Country’ will showcase the best of rural events and

lifestyle, highlighting visitor attractions around Selwyn in October

and November.

The campaign covers everything from farm experiences, farmers

markets, fêtes, A&P Shows, garden tours and festivals such as the

Hororātā Highland Games.

It aims to highlight the best of rural life, particularly for people looking

for a day out from Christchurch or the surrounding districts and

Selwyn people looking to get to know their own backyard, Council

Community and Facilities Group Manager Denise Kidd says.

“We know there’s always something exciting going on in our rural

communities, but it’s not always well known in the wider community.

The life we have from the land is the backbone of our district and

community and we want to share that with people around Canterbury

and encourage people in Selwyn to enjoy what we have here.”

More information about what’s on is available on

Selwyn.nz/meetusinthecountry.

Have your say on rules for

keeping animals in towns

We want to hear from you on proposed rules for keeping animals,

poultry and bees in our towns and townships.

As Selwyn’s population grows, especially in our townships, so

does the number of pets and animals we have, so the Council has

developed a draft bylaw on the keeping of animals, poultry and bees.

The draft bylaw covers the keeping of animals in townships except

dogs, which are covered by separate legislation. It aims to protect the

public from nuisance, and address public health and safety issues.

It sets rules on the numbers of hives and poultry allowed, and where

and how they can be housed.

It would also mean no stock is allowed on properties under 2000

square metres without written approval from the Council.

It covers issues such as nuisance, odour, and noise and will allow

the Council to investigate and act on nuisance complaints relating

to animals.

In the previous consultation feedback was sought on whether the

Council should require people to microchip and de-sex their cats.

The Council has reconsidered its position and these provisions have

been removed from the draft bylaw.

Submissions are open until 5pm Friday 6 November, and you can

request to be heard at a public hearing on your submission.

The Statement of Proposal (which includes the draft Proposed

Bylaw), can be viewed at all Council Service Centres and Libraries.

You can read the draft bylaw, and make a submission online at

selwyn.govt.nz/animalbylaw. Or you can download a submission

form and email to animalbylaw@selwyn.govt.nz or post to:

Leeston flood protection work begins

Work is under way on stage three of the Leeston stormwater bypass, replacing the High Street culverts

and connecting these to Volkman Drain.

To do this work Station Street and Leeston Road will be closed at times around the Volkman Road

and High Street intersections. Station Street is due to be closed from 16 October to 11 November and

Leeston Road is due to be closed from 12 November to 15 December.

When Station Street is closed the detour will take traffic down Cunningham Street back to Station

Street. Because Station Street is the truck bypass into Leeston, residents should expect increased

truck movements during this time.

The works are part of a long-term project to upgrade the stormwater network and reduce the risk of

flooding in Leeston.

Detailed design work for stage four, connecting the Leeston creek with the flood bypass channel is

under way and the Council is making progress to begin construction in February 2021.

This is the final stage for the bypass to be operational. The bypass was originally due to be completed

by 2023, but could be operational two years ahead of schedule. Further work and refinements will be

considered in the future.

Rolleston Drive roadworks

One lane of Rolleston Drive will be closed this weekend, from just south of Dryden Avenue to Norman

Kirk Drive.

The work, which is part of the new Dryden Avenue, Norman Kirk Drive intersection construction, will

begin on Friday 9 October and be finished by the end of day on Sunday 11 October, weather permitting.

Stop/go controls and a reduced speed limit will be in place around the work site. We’re encouraging

people to please consider using alternative routes such as the Weedons Interchange, to avoid delays

on this section of road. Thank you for your patience while we carry out this work.

BLACK CAPS allrounder

Daryl Mitchell launched

his Canterbury country

cricket debut with a

blistering batting assault,

though it couldn’t help his

new club Lincoln to victory

in the opening round

of the premier one-day

competition.

Mitchell, who moved

from Northern Districts

to Canterbury to play his

domestic cricket this season,

cracked 90 from just

64 balls – including eight

sixes – though Leeston-

Southbridge survived the

barrage to ultimately win

by eight wickets after being

set 191 for victory at Leeston

Park last Saturday.

Canterbury Country

captain Harry Chamberlain

led his side home with

an unbeaten 81 off 77 balls.

He was well supported by

fellow Country batsman

Rupert Young (39 off 42)

and Canterbury representative

Will Williams

who was unbeaten on 55.

A former Black Cap was

also prominent in Southbrook’s

58-run win over

Cheviot at Southbrook Domain,

but it was teenager

George Gunn stunned the

visitors with a stunning

haul of 5/9.

After veteran opener

Tony Hancox blasted a

quickfire half-century,

Shanan Stewart made his

own 50 as the hosts mustered

182 on a low, slow

pitch.

Cheviot made a solid

start before another ‘Brook

stalwart, Darryn Boyle, entered

the attack and snared

three wickets.

But Gunn, 15, was the

star of the show, coming

on as fifth change and

immediately having an

impact.

He ripped through the

Cheviot line-up which

slumped from 92-3, to be

all out for 124 in the 36th

over.

Ryan Ellis persevered

with 28 off 67 balls but the

wickets tumbled around

him before he could make

a substantial score.

Competition newcomers

Ohoka lost a thriller

against Sefton as their

quest for 186 fell just short

at Sefton Domain.

Batting first, Sefton

made a solid start through

opener Tim Harrison, who

anchored the innings with

a composed 51 runs off 114

balls.

Matt Laffey chipped in

with 34 and Canterbury

quick bowler Fraser Sheat

added 29 off 35 before

Sefton were dismissed on

the final ball of their 45-

over innings.

Several Ohoka batsmen

made starts but could not

push on, leaving experienced

allrounder Paul

Williams stranded on 42

when tailender Harry Williams

was caught by Sheat

with six runs needed for

a memorable start for the

promoted side.

Williams was McKenzie

Darfield Artweek popular with artists

Darfield Artweek will celebrate its 39th Opening Night on

Friday, 9 October, 7pm, at the Darfield Rec Centre.

“We are pleased to have Areta Wilkinson, an accomplished

artist based in Oxford, as this year’s judge for the Artweek

competition. She will announce the winner of a number

of awards sponsored by local businesses, including the

coveted $2000 Premier Award”, said Malvern Community

Arts Council Chair, Philip Baldwin.

“The Artweek Committee is gratified by the number

of artworks that will be on exhibit. We had expected a

smaller exhibition following the lockdown earlier in the

year, but at least 125 artists from Selwyn District, the city

of Christchurch, and countrywide have registered”, Mr

Baldwin noted.

Members of the public are able to vote for the People’s

Choice Award throughout the week-long art exhibition, as

well as having their vote entered into a prize-winning draw.

Darfield Artweek comprises two exhibitions this year. The

Darfield Rec Centre will hold the main exhibition, with works

that are in competition for awards. At the same time Te

Huanui Art Gallery in Darfield will feature work by members

of Arts Canterbury. “This exhibition features a variety of

artworks—all creative, colourful, and skilfully executed. The

selection of works is stunning”, Mr Baldwin concluded.

Entry to Darfield Artweek’s exhibition spaces, the Rec

Centre and Te Huanui Art Gallery in Darfield, is free from

Saturday, 10 October to Sunday, 18 October.

Ingredients

Crepes:

110gm (¾ cup) plain flour

pinch salt

2 eggs

200ml milk

75ml water

50gm butter

Place the flour and salt into a

mixing bowl. Add the milk and

the lightly beaten eggs. Mix well

with a hand whisk. Add the water

and beat until smooth.

Melt the butter in the pan that

you are intending to cook the

crepes in. Add to the batter and

mix through.

Return the crepe pan to the

stove and heat until it is quite hot.

There should be enough butter

left in it so that you don’t have to

grease the pan.

Tip a little of the batter into the

hot pan and swirl it around so

that the bottom is evenly covered.

Cook until the top is dry, then

turn over using a fish slice and

cook the other side before removing

to a large plate. Continue in

this way until all the batter has

been used.

The filling:

50gm butter

1 large onion

200gm mushrooms

10 asparagus spears

2 tbsp plain flour

½ cup milk

250gm tub cràeme fraiche

½ smoked chicken or 2

smoked chicken breasts

salt and pepper

A little Swiss cheese to grate

over the top.

Preheat your oven to 180 deg

C.

Melt the butter in a large frying

pan. Thinly slice the onion

and add it to the pan. Cook over

a medium heat until soft. Wipe,

trim and slice the mushrooms

and add to the pan. Cook, stirring

occasionally, for a couple of

minutes.

served as a full

meal.

Sprinkle over the flour and stir

in well. Cook for another minute

or two, then add the milk and

mix in well. Take care not to be

too vigorous or you will break up

the mushrooms.

Let this come to a gentle simmer,

stirring fairly constantly,

then add the cràeme fraiche and

stir thoroughly.

Bring to barely a simmer and

remove from the heat. Season

with salt and freshly ground

black pepper.

Bring a pot of water to the

boil and add the asparagus that

should be cut in 2cm lengths.

Let it come back to the boil and

simmer for a minute, then tip off

the water and re-fill the pot with

cold water to stop the asparagus

cooking further. Drain well and

add to the mushroom mixture.

Remove the skin from the

smoked chicken and roughly

chop the meat. Stir this into the

rest of the ingredients.

Directions

Line a 20cm spring form tin

with baking paper. Place one of

the crepes in the base of the pan

and top with a quarter of the

filling. Top with another crepe

and another quarter of the

filling.

Continue layering until you

have finished all the filling, then

top with a final crepe.

Sprinkle over a little grated

Swiss cheese.

Cover with tinfoil and bake for

30min, then remove the tin foil

and return to the oven for a further

10min.

Take the pan from the oven and

leave for at least 10min to firm up

a little. Remove from the tin, peel

off the baking paper and serve

warm cut into wedges.

Any leftovers will successfully

reheat in the microwave.

New Yaris draws on links to Daihatsu

IT’S PROBABLY the Toyota Motor

Company’s best kept secret, it is the

sole owner of Daihatsu.

Daihatsu used to be well

represented in New Zealand, its

range of small cars were popular,

especially in times of fuel shortages

and high fuel prices, the threecylinder

engines that characterised

many of the models were

economical, honest and charming.

As recent history has served

to prove, Daihatsu is no longer

marketed new in New Zealand,

but you can guarantee the threecylinder

engine technology that

Daihatsu developed through the

years has been widely scrutinised

by Toyota when it developed the

fourth-generation Yaris.

Yes, the brand new Yaris is very

much a departure from the old

model. There are hybrid options,

and each of the four variants is

powered by a 1.5-litre three-pot

engine. Sure, most of Daihatsu’s

three-cylinder engines were just

999c, but I’m picking the basic

engine construction bears many

similarities to the faithful units

Daihatsu pumped out in the

hundreds of thousands.

Not only does the new Yaris

have rather special drivelines, it

also incorporates a tasteful, fresh

body style, it is curvy with just

the right amount of design flair. It

looks youthful and almost daring,

the test car was finished in a lime

green with black accents, it looked

terrific and gained favourable

comment during the time I had the

evaluation car in my care.

The newcomer starts at $25,990

for the non-hybrid GX, the subject

of this evaluation. I’m due to drive

the two ZR models soon, they list

at $29,990 (petrol) and $32,990

(petrol/electric). There’s also a GX

hybrid which lists at $27,990. These

are all prices which will bring cheer

to the fuel-conscious buyer, for not

only are you getting good value

but you will benefit from frugal

efficiency of small capacity engines.

Toyota claims a 4.9-litre per

100km combined cycle average

for the petrol-only Yaris, that

against 3.3l/100km for the hybrid.

Both are excellent figures and

are achievable, well at least in

the petrol-only model. The GX I

tested went back to the dealership

showing 5.6l/100km on the

readout, that was gleaned through

a long highway drive along the

Scenic Route/SH 72. At 100km/h

the engine ticks over slowly at just

2000rpm, returning an amazing

instantaneous figure of 3.8l/100km.

The engine is a feisty little unit

which delights with its harmonics.

TOYOTA YARIS GX: Cheeky styling and bright colours for

fourth-generation model.

Three-cylinder engines have a

specific tone, they all do it, and

that is something we’ll all need to

adjust to, engines of this type are

being churned out by a multitude

of manufacturers these days, and

they all have similar sound and

characteristics.

They also develop a lot of natural

torque, pulling from low in the

rev band and, when coupled to a

continuously variable automatic

transmission, there is a lot of natural

freedom, the two elements combine

to provide a seamless flow of power.

Toyota lists the newcomer with a

power figure of 88kW. If you add in

145Nm of torque from 4800rpm to

5200rpm, they are the ingredients

which make the three-potter so

special, it hauls solidly all through

the rev band, peaking at 6600rpm

and delighting as it revs through.

Acceleration is relatively smart

for its role with a 10.8sec standstill

to 100km time, while it will also

complete an overtaking manoeuvre

(80-120km/h) in 7sec.

I’ve made no secret over the

years of my enthusiasm for triple

engines, and the Yaris’ unit is one

of the best, it is a delight in terms

of honesty and its thrifty nature

speaks for itself. I was relatively

enthusiastic when I drove the

car, yet it still delivered good

economy.

The long, straight roads of

Canterbury don’t have many

corners, but I did deviate to a

road which has some tight bends

which always tax a chassis and

suspension. I found the Yaris

to have traditional handling

qualities; typically Toyota it has

solid steering feel and moderate

suspension settings which contain

well a tall body height (1.5m) from

gravitational movement.

Even though the rear suspension

• Fuel usage – 4.9l/100km

is a simplistic torsion beam type

and the tyres are on the small

size at 185/60 x 15in, there is an

encouraging amount of grip. Bear

in mind that in GX form the Yaris

gets steel wheels with plastic trim

covers. There’s nothing wrong

with that, when you are buying a

$25k you should expect just the

essentials.

In saying that, while the

interior trim has just the basics

the Yaris still gets a solid suite of

safety spec and nothing has been

compromised with that.

If you aren’t satisfied with the

GX level of trim, the extra $4k that

will get you in ZR spec adds more

of the niceties that today’s new car

buyer is often looking for.

If you look at the Yaris’ history it

goes way back past Toyota Echo to

Starlet. The latter served my wife

brilliantly for many years, it owes

its origins to Daihatsu, it came off

that company’s production line

and was testament to the quality

both organisations incorporate as

automobile manufacturers.

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Survey reveals rural

connectivity an issue

While the majority of urban New

Zealanders can get on the information

superhighway at speed, the latest

Federated Farmers connectivity survey

shows too many rural families and

businesses are still stuck in second gear on

a potholed back-road.

“We had nearly 900 responses from

our members from every farm type and

geographical spread but a bitter irony

was that several more couldn’t complete

the on-line questions because they didn’t

have internet access or connectivity was

too patchy or slow,” Federated Farmers

President and telecommunications

spokesperson Andrew Hoggard said.

Around 68% of respondents have

download speeds of 20Mbps or less, and

nearly 24% are enduring download speeds

of just 0-5Mbps.

“While around a third is on unlimited

download monthly plans, many of those

on capped plans complain they’d like to

go unlimited but their ISP – often their

only choice of ISP – doesn’t provide that

option.

“It’s interesting that a number of

respondents told us that during the level

4 COVID-19 lockdown some providers

extended unlimited downloads to them.

This would seem to indicate it’s not

technical issues getting in the way of

offering unlimited plans to these rural

clients,” Andrew said.

Mobile coverage remains a concern,

with around one in three farms surveyed

indicating only up to 50% of their farm

gets a connection. Not far short of a

quarter get 25% of farm coverage or less.

“And yet 92% of these farmers had a

smartphone, and around 75% told us they

use smartphone apps to support the farm

business,” Andrew said.

While in many of the connectivity

measures there have been improvements

since the Feds’ 2019 survey, it’s usually

only by a percent or two.

“The task ahead is less one of pushing

broadband into ever more isolated

and remote locations and more one of

addressing the gaps in coverage and

constraints on capacity of earlier builds.

More targeted investment towards

bespoke builds would go a long way

towards addressing connection speed and

reliability concerns,” Andrew said.

“Competition is a concern with many

members finding they only have the one

provider and have to take it or leave it as

regards price and quality of service.”

Many of the new technologies employed

on farms, whether cloud software

or smartphone applications, require

connectivity to realise and maximise the

benefits of their use to the farm business.

Farmers are also increasingly expected

to engage electronically with business

services and government agencies, such

as banks, IRD and local councils. And,

just like urban families, the farm owner’s

home and the on-farm staff houses have

partners and children trying to get on-line

to look up information, do homework and

engage in social media.

GARDENING

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Time to get planting and fertilising

OCTOBER IS possibly the most

exciting month in the home

garden with plenty to plant both

outdoors and indoors.

Houseplants

‘Change over time’ for cyclamen

that have finished flowering,

either plant them in the garden

or pop them in the compost

bin. Time to purchase and plant

up news seasons flowering

houseplants like spathiphyllums

(peace lily), anthuriums,

kalanchoes (flaming katies) and

moth orchids. Check if existing

houseplants need repotting. Use

a houseplant potting mix and

move them up to a slightly larger

pot. Resist planting them into

much larger pots as this can cause

problems with watering. You can

now start applying houseplant

fertiliser.

The change of season means

some areas will become too hot

for some houseplants. North

and east-facing rooms provide

the best light and filtered is best.

Avoid placing plants up against

windows in direct sunlight as

their foliage will burn quickly.

Vegetable garden

All summer vegetables can now

be planted including courgettes,

cucumbers, beans, beetroot, carrots,

celery, corn, leeks, lettuce,

melons, onions, radish, pumpkin,

tomato, and zucchini. Consider

expanding your existing vegetable

gardens remembering the experience

of Covid19 this year.

Prepare the vegetable plot thoroughly

before planting with new

compost, the better the preparation,

invariably a more bountiful

harvest. Stagger planting (every

two weeks or so) to ensure continuous

harvesting and avoiding

If your cyclamen has

finished flowering, replant it.

vegetables maturing at the same

time.

Water young seedlings as

requited and apply a side dressing

of vegetable fertiliser as the plants

mature.

Flowering annuals

It’s time to plant flower beds

and containers with summer

flowering annuals. As with the

vegetable garden, prepare sites

with new compost and use new

container mix when planting into

tubs and containers.

Summer flowering annuals to

plant this month include alyssum,

asters, corn flowers, californian

poppy, cosmos, delphiniums, hollyhock,

livingston daisy, lobelia,

marigolds, nemesia, petunias,

portulacas, phlox, salvias, statice,

sunflowers, sweet peas, verbena

and zinnias.

Fruit trees

Start applying fruit tree fertiliser,

this is especially important

around young specimens as the

fertiliser encourages the development

of a strong, sturdy root system.

As soils warm towards the

end of the month, mulch around

trees to prevent weed growth and

improve water retention over the

hot, dry summer months.

Berry fruit

Boysenberries, blackberries,

raspberries, and loganberries are

all growing rapidly. Remove any

surplus canes where growth is excessive.

Keep training new canes

on supports or wire. Fertilise with

berry fertiliser every five to six

weeks and add a layer of much

around plants.

Stop ‘pinching out’ strawberry

flowers and allow fruit to form

towards the end of October.

Regularly inspect for any sights of

botrytis (gray mould) and remove

any infected leaves. Keep maintaining

a mulch of pea straw and/

or crushed bark around plants.

Roses

In most parts of New Zealand,

roses will be flowering freely and

will be disease free. Apply the first

side-dressing of fertiliser towards

the end of the month and repeat

every five to six weeks until mid-

December. Deadhead finished

flowers to promote new continuous

flowering.

Lawns

With grass growth under way

it’s time to start regularly mowing

again. Apply lawn fertiliser and

repeat applications every four to

six weeks until mid-December.

Fresh grass seed can be sown in

problem areas of the lawn, spread

new topsoil evenly before sowing

seed. Keep the area moist until

the grass seed has germinated.

Grass cuttings can be added to

the compost bin in a ‘little but

often’ manner.

Container gardens

Perfect time to replant containers

with flowering annuals, herbs,

or summer salad vegetables. Fill

containers with fresh, new container

mix that is free draining.

Plant herbs close to kitchen and in sun

ALL THE promise of spring is

out there in the herb garden.

It’s a good idea to plant herbs

close to the kitchen — the further

away they are, the less likely you

are to pick them, especially in

rainy weather.

Most of the cooking herbs like

a place in the sun, though mint

will grow in a damp shady spot.

If you don’t have much space,

stick to those herbs you know

you’ll use in cooking.

Consider growing them in pots,

or plant herbs in the flower garden

— most are quite decorative.

Fresh coriander is an important

ingredient in many Thai

and Indian dishes and now’s the

time for planting the seeds of this

annual herb.

Coriander plants are taprooted

and don’t transplant well,

so sow seeds where you want the

plants to grow and thin out when

necessary.

The seeds are slow to germinate,

so don’t give up on them

too soon.

Some varieties of chives die

down in the winter, while others

stay green the whole year

through.

If rust is a problem, cut

the clumps back and wait

for fresh rust-free growth. If

that doesn’t work, it may be

best to plant some new bulbs in

a different spot.

Clumps need to be divided and

replanted every few years in any

case or the chives get overcrowded

and loose their vigour.

Garlic chives have a stronger

flavour than regular chives and

the flowers are white and starry

rather than pom-pom shaped.

The plants grow more slowly

and the leaves stand up to cooking

a bit better.

Parsley comes in two forms

– the curly-leaved variety and

flat or broad-leaved parsley, often

known as italian parsley. The

latter is currently more trendy

but at a pinch you can usually

substitute one for the other.

Notification of the

Proposed Selwyn District Plan

Clause 5 of Schedule 1 of the Resource Management Act 1991

Date of public notice: Monday 5 October 2020

Selwyn District Council invites submissions on the Proposed Selwyn District Plan.

About the Proposed Selwyn District Plan

A district plan is essentially a 10-year ‘rule book’ that sets district-wide rules for sustainably managing how people use, subdivide

and develop land, what and where they can build and also what kind of activities they can undertake. The plan also controls any

adverse effects an activity could have on the neighbourhood. The district plan protects the uniqueness of our district by looking

after our heritage, cultural values, outstanding landscapes and coastal environment.

The Proposed Selwyn District Plan is intended to replace the Operative Selwyn District Plan. However, the rules in the Proposed

District Plan do not have immediate legal effect, except for those that can be found in the following chapters of the Proposed Plan:

· Historic Heritage

· Natural Character

· Notable Trees

· Activities on the Surface of Water

· Sites and Areas of Significance to Māori

· Subdivision.

· Ecosystems and Indigenous Biodiversity

The rules that have immediate legal effect are clearly identified in the Proposed District Plan. You may therefore require a resource

consent under the Proposed District Plan if you wish to undertake work on or within these items or areas.

Designations

The Proposed District Plan includes new notices of requirements for designations. In addition, modifications are also sought for

a number of existing designations. All new notices of requirements and modified designations can be viewed in the Designations

chapter of the Proposed District Plan and on the planning map.

How to make a submission?

Anyone can make a submission on the Proposed Selwyn District Plan by using one of the following options:

· Complete an online submission form at www.selwyn.govt.nz/dprsubmission.

· Download a PDF submission form at www.selwyn.govt.nz/districtplanreview and:

- email it to dprsubmissions@selwyn.govt.nz (Subject line: Proposed Selwyn District Plan Submission)

- post it to Selwyn District Council, Freepost 104 653, PO Box 90/Rolleston 7643,

Attention: Proposed Selwyn District Plan Submission

- deliver it to a Council service centre in Darfield, Lincoln, Leeston or Rolleston.

· Pick up a hard copy submission form at Council libraries and service centres.

Written submissions must be submitted on the Council submission form, or on Form 5 of the Resource Management Act 1991.

Your submission must state whether you want to present your views at a Council hearing.

the summary and full submissions can be inspected.

· People who represent a relevant aspect of the public interest or have an interest greater than the interest of the general public

may make a further submission, in the prescribed form within 10 working days of notification of the summary of decisions sought,

supporting or opposing submissions already made.

· A copy of the further submission must be sent to the Council and the person who made the original submission.

· If requested by any submitter, we will hold a public hearing on the submissions received.

· Following the hearing we will give notice of our decision on the Proposed District Plan (and matters raised in submissions,

including our reasons for accepting or rejecting submissions).

· Every submitter then has the right to appeal the decision on the Proposed District Plan to the Environment Court.

Front

In just a matter of days, New Zealanders will go to the polls and vote on the most crucial

election in living memory.

National’s economic plan of lower taxes, job friendly policies and investment in quality

infrastructure will grow our economy, giving businesses the confidence to grow and restore

household incomes for New Zealanders.

At the heart of everything we do is our drive to support families and communities by giving

businesses the confidence to invest and grow.

We take the view that if New Zealand is going to take on intergenerational debt, then we

owe it to future generations to leave them with intergenerational assets.

Historic investment in critical infrastructure - like the four-laning of SH1 down to Ashburton

will keep thousands in jobs for the next decade.

At the same time as building those assets, we will rebuild our economy - so that core

services like hospitals, DHBs and schools can continue to be well funded, and families and

communities are well looked after.

Selwyn - and New Zealand - needs a National Government that has a plan and is

absolutely focused on growing the economy and creating jobs.

If you vote to send me to Wellington on 17 October, I will do everything in my power to

support you and your family.

Rebooting our economy

We’ll cut your tax. An average income earner will take home

an extra $3000 under a National government. Our JobStart

policy will provide $10,000 cash support for businesses

that take on new staff, our BusinessStart policy will provide

even further cash support for people who want to start a

new business, while our plans to spend an extra $31 billion

on transport infrastructure and $4.8 billion on world-class

education infrastructure will create thousands of jobs.

Back

Your Economy.

Your Future.

Our country is in the midst of the biggest economic challenge in 160

years.

With a recession looming, large budget deficits, extensive job losses,

and the threat of continued hardship, Kiwis need a team with real

world experience that can deliver results.

Only a National Government has the plan to enable and encourage

the investment we need to generate jobs and keep taxes low, while

getting on with ambitious infrastructure builds that will drive growth

and support our families and communities now and into the future.

Week commencing WeDneSDAY, 7th octoBeR, 2020

Paradise awaits

Entering through electric gates, the sweeping driveway leads to a beautifully

master-crafted home designed for the entertainer in all of us. This unique

‘show stopping’ residence was lovingly designed and completed by the current

owners to an extremely high standard for themselves & their extended family.

The versatility of the living spaces & outbuildings leave so many different

options for you to explore.

The beautiful main home comprises 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 separate

living areas, a large study, an amazing designer kitchen & a dining hall that

extends through to a garden room with enviable views of the expansive

grounds. Equally impressive is the cottage, which features a lovely kitchen, 1

bedroom & bathroom + a fully-lined garage with a wide range of potential uses.

All of this is set on 5 acres of park-like gardens, extensively planted with English

specimen trees. Furthermore, the “Vine Bar” with pizza oven, set in its own

vineyard, makes for great alfresco entertainment. This dream-like setting is the

perfect place to host a wedding! For the gardeners out there, wait until you see

the vegetable garden, berry fruits, cherry trees and, in the orchard, peaches,

apples & apricots! The citrus house is bursting with lemons, limes, oranges &

grapefruit. For the car enthusiast, there is a triple car garage + a 6 x 9m Total

Span shed. An extensive irrigation system makes it easy to keep this property

well-watered & looking great all-year-round.

Our vendors have made the very difficult decision to leave their dream property

for a job transfer & are committed to handing this piece of paradise over on or

before auction day for new owners to love & treasure as they have done.

Viewings of this unique & special home will be by pre-registered appointments,

so please contact either Sarah or Nick to arrange a time to tour the property &

see all that it can offer you.

A solid investment opportunity

Situated in a prime location and boasting an excellent productivity record, this 123 hectare (subject to survey) dairy

unit warrants your full attention. The availability of water combined with an efficient dairy farm system promises a

solid future. The majority of the land is covered by a Wiper Pivot, with the balance of irrigation via the combination

of a Southern Cross Gun and Turbo Rainer. This location is well regarded for its grass growing ability and fertile soils,

providing a proven base for excellent ongoing results. The workable shape, central lane and road access along the

length of the property makes maintenance a simple process. The existing platform area of approximately 133

hectares has been running around 430 cows and producing an average of approximately 195,000kg/MS. The

40-bail rotary dairy shed has been fully upgraded in the last two years.

Identifying the square metre rate

The square metre rate (sqm) is the

average cost of building each square metre

of a house; calculated by dividing the total

build price by the home’s total square

metres.

Sqm rates are not standard across

all parts of a house with building costs

varying between rooms. Garages cost

considerably less than utility rooms like

kitchens, bathrooms, and laundries so

choosing high quality appliances and more

features can ratchet up the build price.

The cladding chosen is also relevant. A

quoted sqm figure is likely based on brick

veneer, the cheapest form of cladding,

followed by plaster finish then cedar.

Building a smaller house does not

necessarily translate to a lower sqm rate.

Certain costs are incurred regardless of the

size of home. You still need an electrical

Show

home

Guide

switchboard and the same number of

building inspections. The cost of drainage,

hot water cylinder, garage door, and

telephone and electricity connections will

not differ significantly between larger and

smaller houses. Building consent fees do

vary with the size of house.

Sqm figures are therefore guides,

influenced by the features specified and

type of build. The standard sqm figure

quoted by a building company is generally

based on construction of a standard

house on a fully serviced section, on good

ground.

Ground conditions determine the

type and cost of foundations. If building

on TC1 land the foundations are more

affordable than on TC3 land. Ease of

connection of services like electricity and

the internet are also a factor. For example,

the distance from house to roadside is

usually further on a lifestyle property.

When a housing company quotes a

square metre rate, it will likely refer to

building the actual house, not external

landscaping or other features.

Thinking of Building?

Come on over... and be inspired.

Some building

companies offer

turn-key packages

where the build

price incorporates

an allowance

for fences,

driveways, paths,

letterbox, some

soft landscaping,

and maybe a

clothesline. You will

want to ascertain

what you will get for your money.

A building company’s lowest sqm

rate is likely (though not always) based

on a standard stud and internal door

height, and flat ceilings. Deviations like

opting for over height doors or higher

ceilings are usually extras with the build

price increasing. Be aware of sales patter

encouraging adding non-essential features

you may not really want, and which might

exceed your budget.

The features incorporated into a new

home impact on the sqm build price, a

figure which can range from $1,600 per

sqm for a standard house to over $3,000

per sqm for an architecturally designed

home.

When visiting show homes, determine

each company’s sqm rate and add-on

features incorporated, for the home on

view. Ask what is standard for each level

within their range of builds. The figures

will vary substantially between homes and

companies. Gather plenty of information

to gain an appreciation of what a quoted

sqm figures represents.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Expertise, quality

workmanship

and reliability

Building a new home is a major commitment, involving

many decisions along the way. You will therefore want a

building company you can work with and trust.

One building company, which has a proven track

record in Selwyn is Generation Homes Christchurch.

In the last year, they have constructed 36 homes in the

district and 150 in the last five years (112 of these in

Rolleston).

Generation Homes Christchurch, have been a main

player in the Rolleston subdivisions of Branthwaite and

Devon Park, and were the creators of Devon Green. They

are the contractors for Woodcroft Estate lifestyle village,

having recently completed The Pavilion there. You may

also have seen the Generation Homes’ flag in Lincoln’s

Flemington, Te Whāriki or Rosemerryn housing estates,

or around Rolleston where they have built homes in

Faringdon, Acland Park, Stonebrook, Park Lane and East

Maddisons Road.

Joint Venture Partners of Generation Homes

Christchurch, Evan and Nadja Beker have a personal

involvement with their company, supported by a skilled

and capable team. They take time with clients, guiding

them through the build process so each and every client’s

needs are met and they end up with a home they will

love. The company’s aim is to build a modern, dry, warm

and healthy, quality home which will stand the test of

time. Their 14 stage build process adheres to industry best

practice.

The Generation Homes Christchurch team have the

skill to assist all client, whether first home buyers or

those looking for a special home. They aim to make the

experience as stress-free as

possible, offering a fixed

price build in a guaranteed

build time. They also offer a

ten year residential Master

Build guarantee so you have certainty.

Clients work with a sales consultant from their first

meeting, through the design and build process while

everyone in the team takes a committed approach. Should

an issue arise, it will be dealt with the moment it occurs.

This human touch extends beyond their core business

activities with Generation Homes Christchurch assisting

many community initiatives, like St John Rolleston base’s

renovations, Halswell’s Knights Stream School’s bike park,

and sponsoring the Diwali Festival.

As well as having a library of 300 house designs,

Generation Homes Christchurch offer a full architectural

design service. A colour consultant also works with every

client to help them determine the décor for their new

home.

Generation Homes Christchurch currently has two

showhomes in Halswell at:

of Halswell Junction Road); open Wednesdays-Sundays,

12noon-4pm; and
