Meeting to decide future

of Cranford St transport lane

• By Bea Gooding

A PIVOTAL meeting will be held

tomorrow to decide the future of

an additional transport lane on

Cranford St.

The Papanui-Innes Community

Board will settle on which option

to endorse at the meeting. The city

council will then make a decision

on whether to approve the option

at a later date.

An investigation by city council

staff was undertaken to assess the

operational layout of Cranford St,

between Innes Rd and Berwick St

to mitigate the predicted increase

in traffic throughout

the area caused by the Christchurch

Northern Corridor once it

opens.

Their report will be presented

to the community board at the

meeting for members to consider.

Options include a clearway,

which was a second general traffic

lane, a high occupancy vehicle

lane for vehicles with more than

one occupant during peak hour,

or a bus lane.

The community has since preferred

a lane dedicated for public

transport as they feared cars were

being prioritised over the community.

staff indicated the Cranford St

and Innes Rd intersection was

likely to act as a bottleneck for

the CNC, discharging about 1400

to 1600 vehicles per hour.

The city council received 253

submissions from the community

regarding the downstream effects

projects in August last year.

“Submitters provided feedback

that the plan is putting cars

before the community and making

this corridor too focused on

single-occupancy vehicles,” the

report said.

The report comes after mounting

frustration by residents in the

area in recent months due to consistent

roadworks, with Cranford

St becoming a playground for

dangerous drivers.

Majority of the roadworks in St

Albans is due to be completed by

the end of this month, with the

CNC expected to open by the end

of this year.

DECISION: Cranford St road works, between Innes Rd and Berwick St, where options for

an additional transport lane are being considered at the Papanui-Innes Community Board

meeting tomorrow.

Opposition grows over planned liquor store

• By Bea Gooding

OBJECTIONS: A Bottle-O is planned for Papanui which if approved would mean three

liquor stores within 200m of eachother.

RESIDENTS FEAR Papanui will

become a “liquor village” if an

application for a new liquor store

is granted.

Momentum is building to stop

a new Bottle-O outlet on Main

North Rd from opening, which

if granted, would mean three

liquor stores would be located

within 200m of each other.

New complaints by Papanui

residents, including Robert Bush,

have been made to the city council

over the matter.

“All local residents are really

angry. I haven’t heard one person

say they don’t mind it,” he said.

“I strongly object to the new

liquor store in Papanui because

there are already too many

liquor stores, supermarkets and

bars that sell alcohol. Papanui

High School is also just 600m

away from the proposed site.

“This is totally horrible if the

council grants new licensing.

Now this is a liquor village,

with drunk people shouting at

the roads and urinating on the

streets.”

Last week, Nor’West News

revealed an application by BD

Bottle Ltd was made to open

Bottle-O Papanui at 30 Main

North Rd, with proposed opening

hours from Monday to Sunday

between 10am and 10pm.

Other liquor stores in close

proximity included Super Liquor

Papanui, which was 50m away,

and Thirsty Liquor Papanui,

which was 180m away.

Opposite the proposed store

was also a bus stop which was

also extensively used by school

children, including teenagers

from Papanui High.

Bush only heard about the

proposal when his friend supplied

him with more information

about the application and

through the public notice on the

city council’s website.

Papanui resident Mel Price

also objects the application and

has been raising awareness of the

issue to residents and businesses

due to notifications only being

found on the city council’s

website.

“My main aim is to make sure

the residents of Papanui are

aware of the license application

as often these can slip through

because no one knows about it to

object,” she said.

“I am not opposed to the sale

of alcohol, but I don’t think

Papanui’s main street needs

three liquor stores. Studies have

shown that an increase in outlets

clustered together means there is

potential for harm.”

Papanui-Innes Community

Board member Simon Britten said

he has heard both positive and

negative comments over the matter,

but still questioned whether a

new store on the same stretch of

road as others was warranted.

The revolution

in heat pumps

is here now!

HAVE YOUR SAY: Do

you think a third liquor

store should open on

Main North Rd? Email

your views to norwest@

starmedia.kiwi

Concerns about the societal

impacts of alcohol such as

violence from intoxication, and

longer-term health impacts such

as foetal alcohol syndrome,

needed to be considered, he said.

“It does seem like a lot for a

small area,” he said.

He supported a need for

public notifications to be more

widespread beyond the city

council’s website but understood

the difficulty in doing so.

“It’s always difficult to reach

everybody. In general, I’m

always supportive of the council

to do more to direct the community.

I have noticed a few signs

up in the community though,

like on store fronts.”

The community board is

unable to submit objections

but are able to speak on behalf

of residents at a later public

hearing by the District Licencing

Committee, which was not

regarded as a public submission.

The public has until Monday

to object the application.

Every now and then (think maybe once

or twice in a decade), I’ve been witness

to a form of general real estate madness.

Good madness, but madness nevertheless

– unforeseen and unexplainable.

Against every prediction, including the

predictions of expert economists and bankers,

and despite everything that has happened, real

estate sales (both in terms of volume and value)

are exceptional right now.

There’s an incredible hunger to purchase, to

push higher than expected when buying, to

compete and to utilize auction.

Unlike in other periods, this phenomenon

doesn’t restrict itself to one particular price point

or demographic: it’s every price point and over a

great variety of locations.

We have had spectacular results in our auction

rooms, and it’s a sure sign that the market

is favouring owners when they request an

auction campaign for their property rather than

challenging the idea.

So, here are some personal observations:

Current Activity

July, August and September, so far, have been

extraordinary, with July’s figures showing the

highest number of sales in five years nationwide.

I’m expecting this to be no different for August

and September, with our own company

seeing lofty sales records exceeded and then

superseded.

Interest Rates and Interest Returns

Yes, interest rates are low, in fact, they are tiny

in comparison to anything any of us (including

those with memories of up to 21% in the ‘80s)

have ever had.

And this is giving people the chance to upgrade,

get on the property ladder and make lots of

property decisions, e.g. why rent when I can buy

for the same, if not less, weekly outgoings?

It’s also creating a massive dilemma for those

with bank investments who are seeing changes

to their life and retirement choices pushing them

into property purchases. This group is looking

to create returns that, whilst lower from a yield

perspective, are still better than the banks.

This pool of buyers sitting on savings or large

equity in their properties is buying in force and

it’s easy to see why.

The Election

Is having no discernible effect on people’s

property decisions.

And if that’s a surprise, it’s supported by a recent

study undertaken by Trade Me, where 82% of the

1,700 survey respondents said the timing and

result of the election had no bearing on their

decision to buy or sell.

Expats

As I told someone recently, who asked, ‘is it true

expats are coming home and buying?’, I can only

reply ‘yes’ and ‘yes’.

Even with border restrictions, Statistics NZ has

reported that up until June, annual migration

showed a net 79,400.

What are they looking for? It appears to be

location, which is everything. New is preferred,

proximity to schools, cafés, the parks and city

centre is desired, and they are shopping with big

sums. Family members are often scouting and

advising first.

Less Available Listings

Which feeds the elements already mentioned,

pushing prices – and, sometimes, tempers –

and generally adding to the current state of

‘madness’ in the current market.

My final observations are probably the most

important. Despite the current climate,

most buyers are still tough on compromised

properties, those poorly presented and with title

or structural issues.

And please work with professionals rather than

risk underselling. Just one of our recent success

stories had owners enjoy a campaign that saw

them sell for 68% above RV, creating a new local

record.

For results, or even just a conversation about

real estate, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Summer is on its way!

Planting trees a bid to beat run-off

• By Avneesh Vincent

THOUSANDS OF kahikatea

trees were planted in the

Cranford Basin on Saturday

hosted by Trees For Canterbury.

“About 3500 kahikatea seeds

were planted and over the next

two years, a total of 40,000

trees will be planted,” Trees For

Canterbury manager Steve Bush

said.

He said it was part of a bigger

project which was led both by the

city council and Government.

Cranford Basin was a low lying

area that held stormwater during

large storms. The planting was

a part of a city council scheme

named the Styx stormwater

management project which dealt

with stormwater treatment and

detention.

“The planting will also add to

the benefit of the basin as the

trees will act like a big sponge

and absorb the water,” said the

city council’s parks unit and

ecologist Antony Shadbolt.

The area around the basin had

constant stormwater run-offs

and caused inconveniences

for the residents living near it,

especially some farmers.

Emma Twadell, chairwoman

of St Albans Residents

Association said that some

BENEFITS: Families across Christchurch volunteered for kahikatea planting at Cranford Basin on Saturday.

residents had struggled for 20

years.

Said St Albans resident Martin

Meehan: “I know my neighbours

had a vegetable farm and had to

deal with the stormwater runoffs

every single winter.”

Meehan said he was not

sure how the plantings would

significantly reduce the run-offs.

City council manager of parks,

programmes and partnerships

Kate Russell said that trees

themselves would not reduce the

urban run-offs.

She said the “flood alleviation”

improvements was provided

by the new bunding and

control structures in the basin.

However, the tree planting was

a part of the land management

which would help in the “flood

alleviation” purposes.

Shadbolt said that while the

trees may take a long time to

grow. He said it would gradually

start to “take effect” in the

basin.

Bush said about 96 people

turned up.

“For us, it’s more of an

environmental issue and

commemorate every person who

served in the armed forces, so it’s

a memorial as well.”

The planting was a part of the

One Billion Trees programme,

which helps people to plant

living memorials which honour

members of their communities.

It was launched on April 25,

2018, to mark the 100-year

anniversary of the end of World

War 1.

Centre rebuild back on track

• By Bea Gooding

THE ST Albans Community

Centre rebuild is well under way

and is set to open early next year

in spite of delays.

The $3.1m community centre,

which was due to open in December

this year, will now open

by mid-February.

Still to come was the construction

of the car park, along

with the remainder of the interior

work, but the roof and walls

have so far been installed.

The project was met with

delays due to the Covid-19 lockdown,

with building materials

taking longer than planned to

arrive from overseas.

The St Albans Residents Association

will manage the centre,

which has been operating from

the St Albans Tennis Club building

since last year.

Prior to their temporary

relocation to the tennis club,

operated from a transitional

community centre provided by

Lions Club International Foundation

on Colombo St between

2012 and 2019.

“We’re looking forward to

moving out of there, it’s going to

be fantastic to have a permanent

home. The tennis club wasn’t

suitable for all of our groups,” said

SARA treasurer Lynne O’Keefe.

ASSET: Lynne O’Keefe in front of the St Albans Community Centre.

“It has been a bit frustrating,

but the centre is worth waiting

for.”

The new premises includes

a hall, three meeting rooms,

kitchen facilities and an outside

deck area available for the community

to utilise.

An adjacent section purchased

by the city council will also offer

a quiet green space containing

raised garden beds.

O’Keefe said the centre will

be an “amazing” asset for the

community. She was looking

forward to seeing more groups

coming back to use the space

after relocating elsewhere.

She hoped more groups

would get on board to join other

activities on offer such as gentle

exercise groups for the elderly,

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

painting groups and yoga.

O’Keefe said steps were being

taken in order for the facility to

be more sustainable following

concerns last year about a lack

of options.

An option included taking

rainwater and using it for toilets

or to water the gardens in an

effort to conserve water and be

more energy-efficient.

Call for new

hall at

Marshland

A NEED FOR a new facility

to better meet the needs of the

community has been mooted.

Built in the 1930s, Marshland

Hall, owned by The Marshland

Hall Trust, is underutilised and

no longer meets the changing

needs of the Marshland and Burwood

community.

The trust is currently seeking

feedback to ascertain the

need for a new building for the

community’s health, well-being,

recreational needs.

The results of the feedback will

aid the trust in their submission

on the city council’s Facilities

Network Plan, and to build a business

case for a new facility.

The current earthquake-damaged

building is still being used

by groups such as table tennis and

aerial acrobatics but did not offer

the flexibility of spaces demanded

by smaller groups, or groups with

elderly or very young users.

A new facility would also

support the growth of the community

due to new developments,

such as Prestons Park.

The survey can be accessed

through the Marshland Hall

Trust Facebook page and the

Trustees are “pleased” with the

almost 200 responses received in

just two weeks.

Funding

half way

COLLETT’S CORNER is more than

halfway towards crowdfunding the

$800,000 it needs to progress to its next

stage.

As of yesterday morning, the project

had raised $448,440 from 143 people.

The crowdfunding campaign closes on

October 29.

Members of the public can buy shares

in the community-owned project by

Ohu Developments for $120 per share. It

aims to raise up to $1.4m.

Those behind the $14m three-storey,

mixed-use development are forecasting

an average annual return on 7 per cent

for those who invest at this stage.

Collett’s Corner is planned for a 974

sq m site on the corner of London and

Oxford Sts in Lyttelton. It will feature

a wellness centre, hospitality outlets

and shops on the ground floor, and 20

privately-owned apartments above.

The design gained resource consent

in March. It now hopes to open by June

what was forecast before the Covid-19

pandemic struck. Building is expected

to start in January 2022.

Bargain book sale is back

CHRISTCHURCH City

Libraries’ annual Big Bargain

Book Sale is back on tomorrow

and Saturday following two

COVID-19-enforced delays.

The Big Bargain Book Sale

will be held at Pioneer Stadium

from 9am-7pm tomorrow

and Saturday from 9am-4pm.

The sale was initially set for

March and then postponed

until August because of the

pandemic-related restrictions.

City council head of libraries

and information Carolyn

Robertson said the popular

book sale is “well overdue

but now there are even more

bargains on offer”.

“We will stack up thousands

of withdrawn library books,

magazines and DVDs for

the public to take home and

enjoy,” Robertson said.

“We have found that more

people have returned to reading,

with books filling an often

empty space during lockdown.

“People are also always looking

for a bargain, along with a

great read. At the Big Bargain

Book Sale, we can offer both.”

Sale prices start at $1 for

books for young adults and

children, rising to $3 for

adults’ books and DVDs, CDs

and talking books. A range

of motor manuals will also be

available.

A selection of premium

art, landscape and gardening

books will cost slightly more.

People can also pick up five

magazines for just $1.

Addressing tree removal challenges

From the board

David Cartwright, chair

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board

CHRISTCHURCH, in the past,

has often been referred to as the

Garden City, this being a nod to

our beautiful gardens, trees and

shrubs that are the pride and

joy and method of relaxation for

many of our city residents.

I am very proud of this identity,

it sets us apart from other

New Zealand towns and cities. I

enjoy my weekends in the garden

and I can recall many fond childhood

memories with my parents

in their garden as I grew up.

We are blessed with great

parks across the city, a worldclass

Botanic Gardens and places

like Mona Vale with its gardens

broadening the Avon River.

Mature trees across the city add

considerable value to this picture,

and recently the city council has

been consulting on its tree policy.

For a period of 15-plus years,

this policy has needed clarity

and updating. Thanks to our new

chief executive Dawn Baxendale

this has occurred with a draft

proposal now out for comment.

It is an important document as

it affects everyone. Trees bring

significant pleasure to many people;

children love climbing them

and they bring cover in the heat

of summer.

To our native birds, they

provide food and shelter. From

a climate change perspective,

trees add a huge value providing

shade and a cooling effect plus

help filter out carbon from the

atmosphere.

As a community board, we are

regularly faced with tree removal

challenges, with compliant of

damage to footpaths and stormwater

pipes. In some cases, this

may require a resource consent

or a medical certificate from a

resident to remove a tree. Having

a policy that directs a board, that

makes it clear to residents what

is permitted (or not), is easy to

interrupt and is consistent across

the city will make resolving these

issues easier.

In addition, the policy takes a

proactive approach to replanting/

replacement programmes and

maintenance issues combined

with addressing tree species will

help long-term. I will update

readers in time on the process

here.

Readers might have also

seen recent articles about the

Bishopdale Mall “master” plan

and plans for a development in

this area – the community board

wants to see a positive outcome

for all the stakeholders here both

short and long-term. No set ideas

are set in stone and should you

have an interest in this area/

project please get in touch.

MAINTENANCE: Christchurch has the world-class

Botanic Gardens and a proactive approach to

replanting and replacement of trees.

Feedback wanted on facilities

GROUPS KEEN to make use

of the city’s new pools and

recreation facilities are being

invited to register their interest.

The city council is encouraging

groups to have their say at

information sessions this month

regarding the future use of the

new Metro Sports Facility, Te

Pou Toetoe: Linwood Pool, and

the Hornby Centre.

“We’ve had great feedback

from people about the designs of

our new facilities, and want to

continue to see a diverse range of

activities happening across our

network of recreation and sport

centres,” said city council head

of recreation, sports and events

Nigel Cox.

“Getting an early indication

of requirements means we can

work together on the allocation of

space and prepare well in advance

of the new facilities opening. This

is all about getting more people

more active more often.”

Te Pou Toetoe: Linwood

Pool will be the first of the

new facilities to open. The

$22m facility is being built in

Linwood Park on the corner of

Linwood Ave and Smith St and is

scheduled to open late next year.

It will have a multi-use

25m lane pool, a deep-water

splash pool, a family spa pool,

learn-to-swim pool, and a pool

for toddlers and water deck.

Community meeting rooms and

a kitchen will also be available.

The Metro Sports Facility will

be the next to open, in 2022. It

is being built on the corner of

Moorhouse Ave and Antigua

St.

It will have a 10-lane 50m

competition pool with spectator

seating, a diving pool, leisure

pools, five hydro slides,

nine multipurpose indoor

courts, group fitness rooms, a

performance movement centre,

an aquatic sensory space, and a

high-performance sports centre

with facilities for coaching and

training.

The third facility – the new

community and recreational

centre in Hornby – is scheduled

to open in late 2022. It will have

a lane pool, a learn-to-swim pool

and multipurpose rooms, as

well as a library and a customer

service centre.

“We are running two drop-in

information sessions later this

month where groups interested

in using these facilities can

learn more about what they will

offer. If people would prefer to

meet with us individually to

discuss their needs we are also

HAVE YOUR

SAY: Groups are

encouraged

to register

their interest.

NEWSLINE ​

happy to do that,” Cox said.

The drop-in information

sessions will be held in the Level

1 Function Room of the Civic

Offices, 53 Hereford St, from

4.30pm next Monday, and from

4.30pm on October 28.

Groups who would prefer

to meet individually with a

member of our team can email

rsubookings@ccc.govt.nz to

arrange a date and time.

RAY WHITE PAPANUI NEWS

Ray White Papanui & Papanui Rotary Annual Family Halloween

Event to run this year

Ray White Papanui & Papanui Rotary

are excited to be co-hosting the annual

kids Halloween Event at St James Park

on Friday 30 October at 4.30pm.

This Halloween event is a safe

alternative to door knocking and last

year the feedback from the hundreds

of families who attended was fantastic.

The children’s costumes were varied

and fun and their participation in the

Halloween characters “Scavenger

Hunt” was outstanding.

Registration of attendance is required

and you can do this via the Ray White

Papanui Facebook page. It is a free

event and for children aged 12 years

and under. All participants will have

a fun “scavenger hunt” challenge to

complete around the park and then

they will receive a ‘goodie bag’ filled by

event sponsors with some sweet treats.

The event runs from 4.30pm - 5.30pm.

“This is our second year hosting this

Halloween event and while Covid level

changes were earlier casting doubt

over our ability to run this, we are

delighted our current level 1 status

means we can push ahead. We are

lucky to be part of such a fantastic

community and we are certainly

looking forward to hosting this great

event again!”

Over the past few months, I have been

talking about some of the anomalies

which are cropping up with all of the

new legislation we are dealing with in

property management, and I don’t think

this will stop anytime soon.

In my 15 years working within the

industry, I am finding the latest

legislation which is due to take effect

in February next year is the most

complicated to date. And couple this

with the 28 infringement penalties that

could be incurred if landlords get it

wrong, it has never been so important

to be on top of the legislation.

But don’t panic, help is on the way!

That’s right, we understand that

not only do these constant changes

need to be implemented, but even

more importantly they need to be

understood – and that’s where we can

help out.

I am excited to announce that this year

Ray White will be hosting a Landlord

Academy, and we would love all

investment property owners who own

rentals in New Zealand to join us.

While we normally host these events in

our offices throughout the country, this

year we are making it even easier for

landlords, by using an online platform

to stream this information to you in

the comfort of your own home. (And of

course, it is in a COVID proof format!!)

The Academy will run each Thursday in

November, commencing on the 5th at

7pm. Each week our head of Property

Management Zac Snelling will have

a guest covering a range of property

management topics from current

legislation, to upcoming legislation, and

even delving into the financial side of

property investment. Again, this will be

live-streamed so you will even be able to

ask the experts questions on the night!

The sessions will also be recorded, so

if you are unable to watch them live,

you can just watch when it works best

for you.

If you are interested in finding out more
