Motorway signs labelled

‘an absolute failure’

Grigg holds

seat for

National

against

the tide

• By Matt Slaughter

SOUTHERN Motorway

signage is now under fire over

its lack of directions to key

points in the district.

Deputy Mayor Malcolm

Lyall said there is not enough

signage to tell motorists where

to get off the motorway to access

places such as Prebbleton

and Lincoln.

He says the signage is “an

absolute failure.’’

Motorists heading south

could go past turn-offs because

only Hornby is written on

them.

Some of the Prebbleton signs

point motorists towards lessdirect,

more dangerous routes,

said Lyall.

His concerns comes on top of

recent criticism of the Halswell

Junction Rd on-ramp which is

designed to take traffic from

the direction of Prebbleton,

Hornby and Sockburn onto

the motorway and into

Christchurch.

NEW SELWYN MP Nicola Grigg

has described her win on Saturday

night as “bittersweet.”

Grigg held on to the seat

comfortably for National, polling

18,578 votes, 4943 votes ahead of

her closest challenger, Labour’s

Reuben

Davidson

(13,653).

But it was the

closest contest

in the staunch

National seat

for 27 years.

Said Grigg:

“It really was Nicola Grigg

a bittersweet

night for me in the sense that

there’s obviously a huge swing

towards Labour across the country.

“The [National] caucus hasn’t

always covered itself in glory this

year. There have been a number

of mistakes made and it’s been

hugely disappointing I think

for our membership and our

supporters and our volunteers

and actually, the public.

CONGRATULATIONS to

Nicola Grigg for winning

the Selwyn seat on Saturday

night.

On paper, Grigg was

never going to lose the seat

for National. But on reflection

anything could have

happened given the huge

voter backing for Labour

across New Zealand.

In the end Grigg, who

replaced the retiring Amy

Adams, won comfortably,

even though it was

National’s tightest margin

in Selwyn for 27 years.

Grigg is a political newbie

in the elected sense. But

she has a lot of experience

in Parliament as a press

secretary to Bill English and

Simon Bridges.

The election result means

National will need to

reinvent itself in the next 12

months.

The Nicola Grigg’s of the

party are well placed to be

prominent sooner than they

might have thought.

House prices across district rise again

• By Matt Slaughter

HOUSE PRICES across Selwyn

continue to increase.

Latest figures show median

house prices have risen from

$558,000 in September last year

to $580,000 in the same month

this year.

The number of properties sold

in the district is also increasing.

Between January and September

last year, 87 were sold and 126

have been sold in the same period

this year.

The number of days properties

have taken to sell has decreased

by 10 days in Canterbury compared

to last year.

Ray White director for

Rolleston, Lincoln and West

Melton, Brendan Shefford, said

notable sales in the district

recently were 4 Hulme Lane in

Rolleston, a four-bedroom, twobathroom

home with a rateable

value of $680,000, which sold

for $870,000. Twenty-two Lansdowne

Way, Rolleston, valued at

$505,750, sold for $531,000.

“[Properties in] Lincoln and

Rolleston are going gangbusters,”

said Shefford.

He said there are many reasons

why the property market in the

district is strong. Interest rates

are between two and 2.5 per cent,

there are a number of employment

opportunities and travel

HOT PROPERTY: (Above)

– This house in Hulme

Lane, Rolleston sold for

time to get to Selwyn has been

slashed with the construction of

the Southern Motorway.

Said Shefford: “The realisation

of the Southern Motorway

is making people realise that

Rolleston is not so far away.

“There’s employment all over

the place, plenty of businesses

opening.”

He said new three-bedroom

houses in the district generally

sell for between about $500,000

and $550,000. Houses in the

same price range in Christchurch

tend to be about 30 years old and

colder, he said.

Selwyn Times reported earlier

this month median property

values are the highest in the district

in West Melton at $831,100,

Prebbleton ($769,450), Tai

Tapu ($696,700) and Lincoln

Rugby player’s Aussie Rules bid

• By Chris Barclay

A LINCOLN rugby stalwart has

moved the goalposts by chasing

an ambitious bid to make his

mark in Australia’s premier

football code.

Kris Wilder, a goal-kicking

fullback and centre, made the

transition to Australian Rules

football last year and now the

28-year-old has a chance to

showcase his skills a day after

Geelong and Richmond play

out the pinnacle of the sport in

Brisbane.

A first-year AFLNZ

Premiership player, Wilder has

an opportunity to impress scouts

from the AFL’s 18 clubs when

the full forward aims to help the

Western Crows to back-to-back

titles by upsetting favourites

Southern Spirit at North

Harbour Stadium on Sunday.

THe odds are against Wilder

drawing interest from the Tasman,

while the Crows are also likely

to battle after losing by 11 and

then 48 points to the Spirit before

Covid-19 halted the regular season

in March. Not that Wilder was

fazed by the challenges.

“THe season got abandoned

because of Covid and then they

decided to go ahead with the

final. We were sitting second on

the table, so we head up at the

weekend, which will be good,”

he said.

STRETCH: Full forward and Lincoln rugby stalwart Kris

Wilder reaches for a mark playing for the University

Cougars, the precursor to playing for the Western Crows in

the AFL New Zealand premiership final.

Wilder is among a handful

of players living outside of

Auckland to feature in the

premiership and although

familiarity will be lacking with

teammates, he has at least been

keeping in AFL shape via the

Christchurch club competition.

However, the Crows and Spirit

will not have a training session

with the non-Auckland players

before the opening bounce –

tactical discussions have had to

be held online.

Wilder was drafted by the

Crows last November, with

the grand final originally

scheduled for April 5 before

CHARGE: Wilder playing for Lincoln rugby.

PHOTO: KAREN CASEY

the exclusively Auckland-based

four-team premiership calendar

was curtailed by the global

pandemic.

THe regular season lost two

rounds but rather than switch

focus to 2021, AFLNZ opted to

bring the competition leaders

together for a final.

“THey’ve all been playing in

the local leagues so that makes it

a bit easier,” AFLNZ spokesman

Tom O’Keeffe said.

“THey’re not going to be so

rusty with local footy and a preseason.

They’ll be fit and raring

to go.”

Wilder started playing AFL

last year during rugby’s off

season and after five games

for the University Cougars in

Christchurch he made himself

available for the AFLNZ draft.

“It is a fast game with a

lot of running and a heap of

athleticism. I’m just keen to see

where I end up with it,” he said.

“It cost $600 to enter it (the

draft) but if you get drafted that

covers your flights to Auckland

(for games) and your meals, kit,

warm-ups and ice baths etc.

“It’s quite professional in that

sense, it’s like the Mitre 10 Cup

in rugby, that’s the best way I can

describe it.”

FARMERS WILL get a chance

to safely dispose of their ‘hard to

move’ waste in the district next

month.

The Selwyn District Council

programme, with Agrecovery

Rural Recycling, will be held in

Malvern on November 9.

The event offers farmers and

growers the opportunity to

safely dispose of a variety of

farm waste.

This includes chemical containers,

fertiliser and feedbags,

waste oil and unwanted chemicals.

This year silage and bale wrap

cannot be accepted.

To take part people must register,

book a time and indicate

the type of waste they will be

bringing.

The location will be provided

to registered attendees.

More than 60 people dropped

off 6915kg of farm waste last

year, including 2705kg of chemicals

that were safely treated and

disposed of.

Fifteen hundred kilograms of

chemical containers and more

than 1000kg of fertiliser bags

were also disposed of.

District council solid waste

council jumped at the

opportunity to host the event

again.

Underpaying staff

costs asparagus

grower nearly $50k

AN ASPARAGUS grower has

been stung for nearly $50,000 for

underpaying staff.

The Employment Relations

Authority has ordered

Christopher Gray of Motukarara

Asparagus to repay 13 pickers for

unlawful deductions, minimum

wage arrears and proper holiday

pay entitlements.

He must pay a total of

$49,722.49 to the former

employees, 10 of whom were

seasonal migrant workers, two

other migrant workers and one

New Zealander.

The Labour Inspectorate found

some of the employee’s wages

were being calculated based on

how much asparagus they picked

at $2.50 a kilo.

Horticulture sector inspector

Kevin Finnegan said there was no

system in place to make sure they

were earning at least minimum

wage.

He said they also found pay

was being deducted for things

like airfares and accommodation

without the workers’ consent and

Gray had failed to pay them time

and a half for working public

holidays.

The Labour Inspectorate

uncovered the issues as part of

a standard audit undertaken at

the end of the first year of being a

Recognised Seasonal Employer.

NEWS

• From page 1

Lyall is concerned about three

signs along the motorway. One is

just before the Shands Rd overbridge

and exit, points left and

reads “Hornby” but does not mention

Prebbleton and Lincoln can

also be accessed from the turn off.

Another sign also approaching

the Shands

Rd overbridge, does say

Prebbleton on it but

advises motorists to go

straight to get there.

“The [sign] directs

people to Prebbleton

through the busiest most

dangerous route, not the

more direct Shands [Rd]

option,” said Lyall.

The third sign Lyall is concerned

about at the Shands Rd exit shows

motorists where to go to get to

Shands Rd, Hornby, Christchurch

Airport, Lincoln and Springston,

but not Prebbleton.

“The absence of directional

exit signage to Prebbleton from

the motorway via the Shands Rd

overbridge, in either direction, is

an absolute failure on the part of

NZTA and needs to be rectified,”

he said.

Lyall is also concerned with the

signage between Rolleston and

Prebbleton.

“If you’re coming from Rolleston

and you head towards Prebbleton,

you’ll come down the motorway

and you’ll get close to the exit that

is the Shands Rd exit, which is the

only exit you’ve got, and the only

signage there says Hornby and airport.

There’s nothing there at all to

say turn off here to go to Springston

or Lincoln or Prebbleton.”

Lyall knows people not familiar

with how to get to Prebbleton who

have got lost as a result of

this.

“If you miss that airport/

Hornby sign, your next exit

is way further through at

Curletts Rd,” he said.

He has raised his concerns

with NZTA and asked it to

improve Prebbleton signage

along the Southern Motorway.

This comes after Selwyn Times

reported last week Halswell-

Hornby-Riccarton Community

Board chairman Mike Mora will

seek to organise a meeting between

its members and New Zealand

Transport Agency staff to discuss

safety concerns about the Springs

Rd/Halswell Junction Rd on-ramp.

The board requested the on-ramp

be installed about two months before

the $195 million Stage 2 of the

Southern Motorway project began

in 2016.

NZTA media spokesman Andy

Knackstedt said it will address the

community board’s concerns with

the on-ramp directly but it does not

have anything to add in terms of

Lyall’s concerns with signage.

Election win

‘bittersweet’

• From page 1

“The electorate has

just 26.8

per cent of the nationwide

49.1 per cent, its biggest

victory in 50 years.

Grigg said it is hard to

say if the number of votes

Davidson received pointed

to a change of allegiance in

the Selwyn electorate.

“I think 2020 has been

such a difficult year for

everyone. There’s been

so much upheaval with a

global pandemic and now

an economic recession that

I think the vote has been a

vote for continuity.

“In my view, the

Labour vote has largely

benefited from, I think,

Jacinda Ardern as prime

minister. She has huge

personal popularity. Had

she not been at the helm,

things may have been different.”

BACKYARD CRITTERS

AN UNUSUAL looking

Australian scale insect

sometimes seen in gardens

and native habitats in New

Zealand is the cottony

cushion scale, Icerya

purchasi.

First found in New

Zealand in 1877, the scale

is known to feed on 65

families of woody plants

but is commonly found

on citrus and pittosporum

species.

The 5-10mm long adult

scale attaches itself to

branches or twigs by waxy

secretions and produces

white eggs sacs in grooves

which encase hundreds of

red eggs.

These sacs swell in size

and nymphs hatch and

disperse by crawling or by

wind.

Smaller nymphs feed

around the midrib veins

of leaves and small twigs,

while larger nymphs feed

on larger branches and

trunks.

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in entomology (insects

and other invertebrates). Each week he introduces a new species

found in his backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise public

awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living things around us.

Check out the full list of invertebrates found at www.inaturalist.

org/projects/backyard-biodiversity-bugs-in-my-lincoln-section

Australian scale insect

feeds on woody plants

Unlike most other scale

species, adults and nymphs

retain legs for limited

mobility.

The scale has piercing

mouthparts called stylets

that consist of two tubes.

Saliva is pumped down one

tube and the plant cells are

forced up the second tube

into the scale.

In addition to the

damage from scale leaf

piercing and sucking,

they produce sugary

honeydew which drips

on leaves beneath and is

attacked by sooty mould

producing unsightly

blackened leaves.

The pest scale has several

natural enemies including

four parasitic wasps and

three ladybird species. ​

Proposed Selwyn

District Plan

Because

it matters.

How does it affect you?

Know your zone

A district plan controls what activity and development can happen on land. It does this by categorising land into different zones and then setting policies and

rules on what can be done in a zone. For example, whether you can subdivide your land or how many buildings you can have on it or what kind of activity

you can run on it.

Where can I

develop land

in Selwyn?

JP, developer and

business owner

Can we subdivide our land?

Delahunty family, homeowners from Rolleston

Can I run a

business

from home?

Renee, home business

owner from Rolleston

Key proposed zones-related changes:

· Only four residential zones instead of over 70 different Living Zones in the

current District Plan

· Focus residential development within and around our existing townships

and where infrastructure is available (or planned)

· Removes the requirement that only family members can live in a family

flat, now called a minor residential unit

· Reducing the density of houses allowed in West Plains and Foothills, to

ensure land is retained for rural production

· New minimum setback requirements for quarrying, airfields, helipads and

to minimise the risk of wildfire in rural areas

· Running a business from home continues to be a permitted activity in

both rural and residential zones, ie you don’t need a resource consent for

it, as long as you meet certain proposed standards

· No residential zoning changes are proposed through the Proposed

District Plan, except for lifting the deferral of some land in Darfield

and Leeston, which is currently treated as rural land but is to become

residential zoned land in the Proposed Plan

First win in over 100 starts ‘a bit of a relief’

• By Dave Di Somma

IT’S TAKEN him more than a

decade and over 100 starts but

Steve Harding has now trained a

winner – at a racetrack that just

happens to be his namesake.

The breakthrough happened

at Methven’s Mt Harding when

Harding’s four-year-old Manjimup

took out the Methven Panel and

Paint pace over 2400m on October

11.

“It’s a bit of a relief really,” said

Harding who trains at West Melton.

Manjimup capitalised on the

perfect trip in the trail for driver

Craig Thornley before taking the

passing lane and winning by oneand-a-half

lengths.

“I said to my wife as they were

going down the back straight if

he doesn’t win this one he’s never

going to win one.”

Harding’s confidence had been

boosted by a third placing at Motukarara

on September 27.

It was the 102 nd time the former

amateur driver had lined up a

horse at the races since starting out

in 2009. He has now had one win,

seven seconds and five thirds.

“I’m not in to make money, for

me it’s trying to get the best performance

out of the horse. If they

run to their potential, I’m happy,”

he said.

Harding has two horses in

work at his property – “Maurice

O’Leary’s old place” – and juggles

training with his full-time work as

an electrician.

“Jeff Whittaker and Ian Shinn

have been a massive help to

me over the years and I’ve very

grateful for what they have done,”

he said. – Harness Racing News

OUR PEOPLE – MARK BROWN

Bringing talent to the top

Mark Brown never quite made the step up to

provincial rugby amid stiff competition for a start

in Otago’s formidable loose forward trio in the

1990s. So he switched focus to helping other

talented players reach the top, while also running

a surveying business in Christchurch. The West

Melton-based Canterbury co-coach details his job

sharing arrangement and goals with Chris Barclay

Your co-coach Reuben

Thorne needs no introduction

to even a casual Canterbury

rugby fan, if there even is such

a thing. What can you tell us

about your playing career as a

blindside flanker?

I played down in Otago, I’m

from Mosgiel. I played the

majority of my rugby for Taieri

and Otago University. I was

on the fringes, I played a bit of

Otago B but there were some

pretty handy loose forwards

down there in the 1990s. Jamie

(Joseph), Taine Randell, Kelvin

Middleton … Arran Pene. I went

up to the North Island for work

and ended up playing in North

Harbour for a couple of seasons.

I was on the fringes of that squad

too, Troy Flavell was there. After

there I went overseas and played

in Scotland and Ireland for five

years.

When you were in Dundee

and Dublin you decided to try

and make it as a coach. Is that

how a southern man ended up

in Christchurch the city – and

the rugby club – in 2003?

I wanted to play a year at least

because I wanted to go coaching.

I wanted to get my feet under the

table at a club and I had a good

mate, (former Otago player)

Charlie Hore, at Christchurch.

I had two seasons for them.

I wanted to play (club rugby)

because no one knew me in

Christchurch.

When did you start coaching?

I broke my wrist, and broke

my jaw. It (the jaw) was a

collision at training. It knocked

my front two teeth back and I

got a hairline fracture so that

was it. I coached at Christchurch

for two years and then started

a family (Brown has a daughter

Maddi with wife Sharlene).

Club coaching is a hell of

an undertaking time-wise,

commitment-wise. I pulled back

and then I got approached to

coach the Canterbury under-18

TEAMWORK: Mark Brown and fellow Canterbury co-coach Reuben Thorne had worked

together for two years as assistants before succeeding Joe Maddock for the 2020 Mitre 10

Cup season.

side. You go out and watch rugby

on a Saturday in a selection

capacity and then the rep season

is only five to six weeks long. I

was able to stay involved but not

with the time commitment that

was needed for club rugby.

How did your representative

coaching career grow from

there?

I did two years at the under-18

level, then I did the under-

20s. The national under-19

tournament started in 2014. I did

that for three years, that really

kick-started me at that level. We

won the tournament in 2015.

We had Jordie Barrett and

Brett Cameron, a lot of boys

that are playing all round New

Zealand. Then I joined the

Canterbury coaching staff

(under Glenn Delaney) as an

assistant forwards coach in 2017.

OUR PEOPLE 15

in NZ’s national game

Your association with Reuben

Thorne started at Mitre 10 Cup

level. You both wore the No 6

jersey, what else did you have

in common and how has your

combination developed?

Reuben came on board as

an assistant a couple of years

ago. Before then I just admired

him from afar, just followed

his career. We’re pretty closely

aligned personality-wise the

way we do things and see the

game. We sort of clicked quickly.

We couldn’t really see a clash

of philosophies. Joe (Maddock)

moved on (at the end of 2019)

and we didn’t actually have any

intention of applying. It was quite

a last-minute decision.

We thought we’d have a throw

at the stumps for something

different. Instead of waiting to

see if we could maintain our

current roles with a new head

coach – that’s the whole thing

about rugby, it’s an uncertain

occupation.

Whether you’ve got a job as

an assistant next year depends

on the head coach. It’s resultsdriven,

there’s so many factors.

We thought the way to make

sure we’re still involved is to be

the head coach. It’s a first for

Canterbury but Tasman had

done something similar last

year when they won with

Andrew Goodman and Clarke

Dermody.

What was the original

motivation to transition into

coaching?

The appeal was I just love the

game of rugby. I always studied it

and had a good knowledge of it.

It was pretty clear I wasn’t going

to crack it as a player so I still

wanted to try and crack it. That’s

the guts of it.

Did your coaching priorities

change once you picked a

clipboard?

Absolutely. My motivation

at the start was I wanted to

be involved with rugby at the

highest level I could. Then when

I became a coach it became less

about the success for myself and

actually about watching others

you coach succeed. That’s why I

do it now. I get a great kick out of

having some small part to play in

someone’s career.

To that end how rapt are

you that a young forward pack

– six members of last year’s

making encouraging progress

The number of young players

that have played big minutes

this year, it’s a credit to them

the way they’re coping with

the step up. We’ve got a really

good system with that under-19

programme. We’ll always have

a good grounding of players, the

hardest thing is keeping them

here because they do become

quite attractive to other unions.

If we’ve got a logjam in a certain

position, they can be sitting

ducks.

Is Blues-bound rookie lock

and former Christ’s College

captain Sam Darry an example

of that embarrassment of

riches?

I haven’t really spoken in

depth to Sam about his reasons

why . . . I don’t think it was just

about who was in front of him

(Sam Whitelock, Scott Barrett,

Luke Romano, Quentin Strange,

Mitchell Dunshea). I think he

wanted to get out of his comfort

zone a wee bit. At the very least if

they can’t for you at least they’re

playing at the level they should

shows a lost equivalent of three to six terms of schooling in

the key subjects of Reading, Maths and Science.

This is despite a 32% increase in per-child spending since

2001 and, in Christchurch at least, the construction of

purpose-built modern learning environments deliberately

designed to foster the national curriculum’s child-centred

orthodoxy.

Of course, every child should be at the heart of their own

learning. How could they now be! But let’s not throw the

baby out with the bathwater. A child’s education should be

a balance of subject knowledge; essential skills; teaching

programmes developed to suit their demonstrated

knowledge, understanding and progress; and assessment

that offers you, your child and their teachers, honesty and

evidence of this progress.

All parents, teachers and coaches know that children learn

best when they are interested in what they are learning.

Making subject knowledge and skills

interesting is the ongoing and exciting

challenge for all of us who educate and

motivate our children.

Located in the heart of our city, St

Michael’s has been educating and

nurturing the children of Christchurch

for 169 years. For our young pupils

have limitless potential to lead exciting

and generous lives, and we have the

responsibility to educate and inspire

them, to encourage every child to flourish

in mind, body and spirit.

St Michael’s is a prep school for girls and

boys in Years 1-8. ‘Prep’ as in preparation

for secondary school, a foundation for a

fine life. For at the heart of St Michael’s

are the essential values of Christian faith

and good citizenship: respect, integrity, community, faith,

hope and love.

An independent school education at the primary level is

a great gift. Our classes are small, with year-groups of 20

pupils, ensuring your child is an individual, well known by

staff and fellow pupils alike.

Traditional foundations in English and Maths are

assured. This academic rigour then underpins our wider

curriculums in History, Geography, Science and Spanish.

IT literacy is taught, not assumed, and computer use is

measured. We like teaching and talking to our pupils!

A prep education offers balance. St Michael’s cultural

and sports’ programmes further develop your child’s

foundation, as creativity and problem-solving come in

many forms. Specialist art and music classes are enjoyed

weekly. We have three choirs, and most pupils participate

in instrumental or speech & drama lessons with our ten

itinerant staff.

Nestled on the banks of the Avon, opposite the Riverside

Farmers’ Market, our extended campus is spectacular: the

Art Gallery, Museum, Tūranga – the

central library, and Hagley Park are

just minutes away.

Many of our parents now work in

the thriving city centre or Lincoln

and Riccarton Road hubs, but they

live city-wide. They comment on the

comfort of knowing their children are

in school nearby and the benefits of

popping over for an hour to catch a

performance or watch a race. With the

central exchange only a block away,

senior children arrive by bus from all

corners of the city.

You and your child are warmly

welcome to discover our purposeful,

wholehearted and inclusive prep

school. Our next Open Day is

coming up, on Tuesday 3 November. Pop in during

the day between 8.30am – 4.00pm for a tour, and to

book an appointment on the day with the principal,

OUR PEOPLE 17

‘I still value my professional work career’

• From page 15

My father was a bit of a

developer in his time. My role is

I basically deal with the council,

get all the consents and approvals

in place. I co-ordinate all the

consultants and do a pseudo

project management type role

as well. I’ve got a Masters in

planning, it’s good to be able to

put that to good use. I still value

my professional work career as

well as the rugby side of it so to

be able to balance the two, I feel

really privileged.

How do you manage your

work and play commitments on

a weekly basis?

During a normal working

week, Tuesday-Wednesday-

Friday is rugby. I’m fully

immersed in rugby during the

day then I get home, take a

breath and then crack the laptop

for a few hours.

You must have an

understanding boss?

I’m one of the owners but

the other two guys (Andy Hall

and Martin Hayes) are really

supportive. I’ve got four or five staff

under me and they just get on and

do it without me being there.

Are they rugby fans? Do they

also give you a performance

review in the cafeteria on

Monday morning?

They’re not short of an opinion.

Our engineering department

GOOD NIGHT: Canterbury create history with the Mitre

10 Cup’s first golden point victory, over Wellington

Orangetheory Stadium on October 3 to snap a two-game

losing streak.

has a reasonable proportion of

rugby players (from Canterbury

University).

Was it tough turning up

for work after Canterbury

surrendered the Ranfurly Shield

to Taranaki, and then also lose

by a point to Hawke’s Bay – the

first loss to the Magpies since

1982 – in the next round?

Reuben and I have won and

lost the Shield, so I’ve had both

sides of the spectrum. It was

really disappointing because we

really treasure it. It was difficult

from a results perspective and the

expectation we have in our fan

base. But we knew we weren’t far

away. We knew we had to make

a few little changes and get a few

things right. We were reasonably

confident that if we made those

adjustments we could get back

on track. We were creating a lot

of opportunities that we weren’t

converting. If we weren’t doing

that it’d be a little different.

How do you cope after a loss?

Is it beneficial having another

job to focus on?

I’m pretty even keeled

regardless. You just think how

you’re going to be better so it

doesn’t happen again. There’s

quite a nice balance there (with

Davies Lovell-Smith). It gives you

perspective, it’s a real handy asset

with my situation.

You must be a fan of golden

point after Isaiah Punivai scored

off an intercept to beat Wellington

after back-to-back defeats?

Having seen it in (rugby)

league for years, and listening to

the arguments for and against

it, it’s hard to form an opinion.

It’s always tough on the team

that’s at the other end. No one

was good enough to win it at full

time. The conditions in golden

point can change, referees

. . . are they courageous to keep

reffing the way they reffed in the

first 80?

The Mitre 10 Cup appears

to be wide open, it’s a tipsters

nightmare isn’t it?

It’s been heading that way for

the last couple of years, it’s one

thing Reuben and I noticed. We

knew Canterbury had been out

in front for a while but everyone

was catching up. Tasman has

been there or thereabouts for a

while and now they’re taking the

next step.

Do you ever get nostalgic about

the old NPC? There must have

been some decent afternoons on

the terrace at Carisbrook back in

the day, you must have tackled

some characters in club footy

down there.

During lockdown some of the

games on TV . . . you see the

crowds that were at Lancaster

Park or Carisbrook and it was

awesome. Society’s different

now. This year is an exceptional

circumstance but everyone

loves day time rugby. Through

the 90s those Otago teams

played a great style of rugby that

had some real characters. They

weren’t your stereotypical rugby

guys who just didn’t show much

emotion or offer much. I think

it’s still there but everyone is on

guard now with social media.

You can say or do something

quite innocent but there’s

always going to be a different

perspective offered about that

now, and that makes people a

wee bit cautious.

You spend a lot of your week

engaged in planning for the

next game, or a development

project. Have you thought

ahead to where you’d like to be

in say five seasons’ time in a

coaching capacity?

Not really, you don’t want to

look too far ahead because it

is quite fickle. At the moment

work is still firmly a priority,

maintaining that balance is my

priority.

Thousands enjoyed CultureFest on Sunday and the fun is set to continue all week.

A huge crowd enjoyed food, music and dance at the annual event at Lincoln Domain, celebrating

the many cultures that make up Selwyn. This year the events will be continuing all week with a

series of workshops, classes and dinners.

Events will range from belly dancing, highland dance and henna workshops to splash times at

the Selwyn Aquatic Centre. Food and drink will also be a big part of the week with a traditional

Chinese tea ceremony and a Kirant cultural evening featuring food, music and dance from the

Kirata people of Nepal.

Food will also be at the heart of helping new residents and old connect at the Dinners of Selwyn

potluck dinner at the Lincoln Event Centre this Friday night, with guests from a wide range of

cultures stretching from Indonesia to Iran, England, Nigeria and more.

For a full list of CultureFest events on this week visit selwyn.govt.nz/events.

Know your zone in the District Plan

Festival opens

week of events

The District Plan sets the rules on where you can have a house or business through zones.

Zones set the direction for where growth will be in the future, including where businesses and homes

can be built. The rules for each zone outline what you can build, covering everything from how tall a

building can be, whether you can build a sleepout or run a business from home, to how far away from

everyone else a noisy business has to be.

In the Proposed District Plan we’re proposing to bring in some changes to the zones in Selwyn.

The plan would simplifying the zones for residential areas from over 70 down to four. It would also focus

residential development in and around our existing towns and give people more options for different

housing types and smaller sections if they want in some urban areas. It would also continue to allow

businesses to run from home, but tighten the rules to encourage businesses to set up commercial and

business zones where possible.

For the rural areas, it would make it easier for businesses servicing rural activities to be based in rural

areas and reduce the density of houses allowed in parts of the western plains and foothills to ensure

land is kept for rural production, Council Planning Team Leader Robert Love says.

“The proposed zones give a guide for growth in the district for the next 10 years. With the residential

zones, we’re aiming to make the plan simpler and make it easier for people to find and understand the

rules for their property. We’re also aiming to give people more choices on the homes they live in, while

keeping our character.”

We’re giving more time for you to have your say on the Proposed District Plan. Consultation has

been extended and now closes at 5pm Friday 11 December. We’ve also added some more drop

in sessions so you can talk to a planner one on one about any questions you have. The drop-in

session dates are:

· Tuesday 27 October, 6–7.30pm, Council Chambers at Selwyn District Council buildings

· Tuesday 3 November, 6–7.30pm, Community Room at Leeston Library and Service Centre

· Saturday 7 November, 9am–5pm, Hororata Highland Games, Hororata Domain

· Tuesday 17 November, 6–7.30pm, Lincoln Event Centre, Baylis Lounge

· Tuesday 24 November, 6–7.30pm, Darfield Recreation and Community Centre, Lounge Room

Business in good heart

at breakfast

An opportunity to support businesses and enable them to keep

operating well in uncertain times was the aim of the first Selwyn

Business Breakfast.

More than 60 people from businesses across the district attended

the Council-run breakfast in Rolleston, to network and hear from

guest speakers.

Ministry of Social Development Regional Commissioner for

Canterbury Dianne McDermott spoke about the ministry’s Business

Support packages available to help businesses through the impacts

of the pandemic.

Economist Benje Patterson reported back on the results of the

first Selwyn Business Survey, a quarterly survey organised by the

Council. The survey showed that although conditions have been

tough, Selwyn businesses reported better operating conditions than

the rest of New Zealand. There is guarded optimism for the next six

months and some optimism for the future longer-term, with job cuts

anticipated to taper off, investment to stabilise, and losses to narrow.

Mayor Sam Broughton says the breakfasts fit with the Council’s

aim to be an enabling Council that helps people to do what they

want to do.

“We’re about holding hands with people and pointing them in the

right direction.”

Many of the guests spoke about the benefits of meeting with

other businesses, to know they were facing similar challenges and

opportunities.

The sentiment was echoed by Margaret Craw, who owns a

hairdressing salon in Rolleston and enjoyed the opportunity to

meet other businesses and learn more about the wider economic

conditions in the district and supports available.

“It’s a great thing to do to get everyone together and realise you’re

not out there on your own. I’ve picked up quite a lot of information on

how things are for everyone. I’m looking forward to the next one.”

Museum Unveils Concept Designs

for Proposed Redevelopment

Canterbury Museum has released concept designs for its $195 million

proposed redevelopment, which celebrate and reveal more of the

Museum’s heritage buildings, provide twenty-first century visitor facilities

and meet the exhibition and storage needs of a modern museum.

Canterbury Museum Director Anthony

Wright says that the Museum has

listened very carefully to the feedback

it has received to date on the proposed

redevelopment.

“People have told us that protecting

the heritage buildings and placing a

greater emphasis on Māori, Pasifika and

multicultural exhibits were all important

considerations for any redevelopment of

the Museum.

“They wanted to see the blue whale

skeleton back on display, improved

visitor facilities and new prehistoric

animal exhibits. People also want us

to retain favourites such as Discovery,

the Christchurch Street and Fred and

Myrtle’s Pāua Shell House.”

He says that Athfield Architects

have captured all of the feedback in

the proposed concept designs, while

maintaining the much-loved intimate

feel of the Museum. “The design

increases the sense of discovery, surprise

and the feeling of never being quite sure

of what’s around the corner. However the

way people move through the Museum

will definitely be improved.

“We will be bringing back the blue

whale skeleton which has not been on

public display for 26 years. The 26.5

metre skeleton will be a focal point in

the Museum, suspended in a new central

full-height glass roofed atrium,” says Mr

Wright. “We are also looking forward to

developing a new, expanded Antarctic

exhibition.”

Canterbury Museum Chair David

Ayers says, “The brief we provided

Athfield Architects was quite

challenging.”

“We want the proposed redevelopment

to enhance and celebrate our history by

unveiling heritage fabric that has been

hidden for many years. The concepts

have more than met our expectations

and we’re looking forward to hearing

what the Canterbury community thinks.”

The Museum is working closely with

Ngāi Tūāhuriri on the concept designs.

Puamiria Parata-Goodall, Kaiurungi

(Chair) of the Museum’s Ōhākī o Ngā

Tīpuna says, “At the heart of the new

Museum is a new space called Araiteuru,

housed in the central full-height atrium.

Araiteuru celebrates the importance of

how we welcome people to the Museum

and this is where we will tell the story

of mana whenua and tangata whenua

through a mix of contemporary and

traditional methods.”

Araiteuru will be home to a new

contemporary whare – a ceremonial and

educational space. The Whare Whakairo

(carved meeting house) Hau Te Ananui

O Tangaroa, a taonga that hasn’t been on

display for 64 years, will also hold pride

of place in Araiteuru.

The concept designs propose that

the walls on the northern sides of the

original Benjamin Mountfort-designed

buildings will be revealed and original

exterior elements, including the flèche

(slender roof-top spire) on the Rolleston

Avenue façade, will be reinstated.

A new three-storey building, within

the height limits of the Rolleston Avenue

roof line, would wrap around the north

side of the heritage buildings, exposing

their heritage walls to public view. The

building would include mezzanine floors,

multifunctional spaces such as a new

Artist’s impression of redeveloped Museum from Rolleston Avenue.

Proposed atrium would feature the blue whale skeleton

lecture theatre and increased space for

permanent and temporary exhibitions.

Base isolation would be added across

the site to protect the heritage buildings

and the collections, and to bring the

site up to 100% of Building Code. New

collection storage would be created as

part of this.

A key element of the concept design

is a second Rolleston Avenue entrance.

The current entry to the Museum is too

small to be the only entrance, and with

more than 750,000 visitors a year and

rising, an additional entrance will reduce

congestion and improve the flow of

visitors into the building. This entry will

also house a cafe with sidewalk seating.

Heritage architecture expert Jim

Gard’ner says the concept design for the

Rolleston Avenue facade respects and

celebrates the Gothic Revival language

of Benjamin Mountfort. “The additions

to the Museum and planned central

circulation patterns are informed by

Mountfort’s original unrealised plans and

ideas for the extension of the Museum.

“The proposed additional entrance

on Rolleston Avenue will have three

openings into a covered portico. This

draws on the typical tripartite form

commonly found in Gothic Revival

architecture, including the 1878 porch of

the existing entrance to the Museum, key

entrances within the Arts Centre, and

the porch of Christ Church Cathedral,”

says Mr Gard’ner.

Floor to ceiling glass will be added to

part of two floors of the Roger Duff Wing

which will house a split-level family

cafe alongside Discovery, the Museum’s

natural history centre for children.

You can see the concept designs

on display and give feedback at

the Museum or online at

www.canterburymuseum.com

until 23 October.

Make your garage clutter-free

Most homes have at least one garage, if not more, but many

are so filled with clutter that the car does not even fit in.

Clearing out your garage not only

means that your car is now protected

from the elements and potential burglary,

but you will have a new space in your

house where everything is neatly stored

and you can find what you need.

Start by clearing out the mess of boxes,

garden tools, bikes and handy bits and

pieces and group similar items together.

You need to see what space you have

to work with and what types of storage

might work best when it’s time to organize

the items you’re keeping.

Decide what to keep based on whether

you’ve used them in the past year and

only keep what is actually working rather

than those items that are on the “fix it

when you have time” list.

The way you organise your garage will

depend on how you want to use. Do you

have a lot of sports equipment that needs

to be stored together, would you like an

area for potting plants or are you a DIY

type and need a work bench?

Create zones in your garage to suit your

needs. Place your garden tools, fertiliser,

grass seed or sprays together.

Use a pegboard to hang your tools,

such as hammers, axes, hacksaws on the

wall, preferably near the work bench and

include shelving for the larger items such

as chain saws.

There are plenty of garage shelving

options to choose from which will make

the most of the space but are also a way of

keeping like things together. Lightweight,

heavy duty and easy to put together, you

can take the shelves with you to your next

garage. Stack bins are another option.

If you have different sized screws or

nails, try putting them into an organiser

with compartments - they come in all

different shapes and sizes - it will make

finding the right size screw so much

easier.

Make sure you utilise all your space

options. If your garage has

rafters then you’re in luck -

they’re perfect for storage. Try

using screw-in hooks to get

lighter items off the ground

and out of your way, while long

pieces of dowel or timber can

be easily stored in a length of

poly pipe.

And if you have a bike

there are a variety of options,

including hooks or hangers to

hang them from the rafters,

ceiling or wall.

Once your garage is

clutter-free and everything is

organised you will not only be

able to find what you need but

you may even be able to park

your car back where it belongs.

Look local for electrical needs

Locally owned and operated and

based in Rolleston, Juice Electrical

Ltd has been servicing the Selwyn

district for 15 years with Greg Horton

and his team of four qualified master

electricians dedicated to the local

community – and there is no service

vehicle charge for Rolleston residential

customers.

The team has recently completed

lighting the exterior of the Salvation

Army rooms in Rolleston including the

entry, signage, driveway, future carpark

and wheelchair parks.

“The brief was to make the place more

approachable, easier to find and less

like a private residence but still create a

warm welcoming feel,” says Greg.

Juice Electrical Ltd can help with

all your electrical needs providing

a professional and timely service

whether it is residential, commercial or

industrial, indoors or outdoors.

“We pride ourselves on going the

extra mile particularly with repair and

renovation work and we’re very strong

on maintenance,” says Greg.

“We advise anyone needing electrical

work to always use a master electrician

so they can provide continuity of

service and, if there are any problems,

they can sort them out.”

It is a good time to be thinking

about how your outdoor areas could

be enhanced and accentuated with

strategically placed outdoor lighting –

and all looks nice from inside during the

evening.

Greg suggests LED (light emitting

diode) lighting as it is a lot easier and

less expensive to install because there is

no need to dig trenches for wiring. He

also recommends installing sensors so

the lights come on automatically.

Juice Electrical Ltd knows a lot about

LED outdoor lighting including uplighting,

deck lighting and floodlights as

well as security lighting and can advise

on the best type and where they should

be placed.

LED lights are fast becoming the

preferred option for indoor lighting as

well.

“The technology has taken off and is

replacing halogen and incandescent bulbs

for the home. Low voltage LED technology

has advanced from being initially used

in calculators and then torches to being

suitable for lighting anywhere in the home

and we highly recommend them.”

Look out for the brightly coloured

Juice Electrical Ltd vans as they work

hard to look after the Selwyn district’s

electrical needs. Call Greg and the team

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Lake Ōhau fire: We told you, Feds says

By Tim Fulton

The devastation at Lake Ōhau in South

Canterbury is the kind of fire that high

country farming leader Rob Stokes and his

peers have been warning about.

Stokes, owner of a large high country

drystock farm at Lees Valley, on the north

bank of the Waimakariri, said fire risk

on Department of Conservation (DoC)-

managed land was being mismanaged,

neglected, and needed urgent review.

The fire that destroyed more than 50

homes at Ōhau village on Sunday October

4th also ripped across 1600 surrounding

hectares of DoC land. Little over a month

before, another fire on DoC property in the

nearby Pukaki Downs area turned about

300ha of trees and scrub to cinder.

Federated Farmers held “grave fears for

many years that locking up high country

land without the proper care is dangerous,”

Stokes said.

The farmer lobby believed the risk would

become even greater with the introduction

of the Government’s new freshwater

policies and livestock destocking as a result

of “unreasonable fencing requirements”.

The Ōhau fire was a red flag for greater risk

of combustible vegetation, he said.

Stokes cited another red flag for fire risk:

a 2012 Report of the Independent Fire

Review which said vegetation fires were

arguably New Zealand’s most significant

fire risk.

Passive grazing of these areas in the past

has significantly reduced the fire risk by

controlling wilding pines and grasses,

which left ungrazed become fuel. It also

enabled the landowners and leaseholders

to manage other pests while preserving

open landscapes.

Stokes said destocking hill and highcountry

farms for conservation purposes

had not been thoroughly considered and

there was “simply no science” to support

destocking. People had now lost their

homes because of DoC mismanagement,

he said.

A December 2017 report commissioned

by Fire and Emergency New Zealand

(FENZ) investigated another dangerous

aspect of wildfire control: public attitudes

to fire control on lifestyle blocks.

The report noted that growth of lifestyle

blocks was particularly a feature of some

districts known to have elevated risks of

wildfire, such as Canterbury, Marlborough,

and Hawkes Bay.

Since 2013 New Zealand has adopted

a Wildfire Threat Analysis system to

identify the level of threat in a particular

area. Threat is defined as a combination

of risk (potential of ignition), hazard

(potential fire behaviour) and values (what

is important to the community that needs

protection). Fire service leader Murray

Dudfield was quoted as saying “managing

fire related risk to land is fundamentally

an issue of land management and not fire

management”.

The FENZ report concluded public

education was an extremely important

aspect of wildfire-risk reduction, “given

that people cause most wildfires”.

Given this, “people living in high wildfirehazard

areas can make their properties

more resilient by keeping a vegetation-free

area around their house, clearing roofs and

gutters of dead vegetation, and ensuring

clear access for firefighters,” the FENZ

report said.

Big SI Field Days is on

By Tim Fulton

The South Island Agricultural Field

Days (SIAFD) is confirmed for Kirwee in

March 2021.

While this year has dealt some Covidrelated

challenges, SIAFD would bring

together everyone involved in agriculture

and wider primary industry to celebrate

industry achievement, organising

committee chair, Michaela McLeod, said.

In regard to Covid risk “the Executive

Committee has made the decision to

continue organising the 2021 South Island

Agricultural Field Days, right up to the

such time until we are told we are unable

to hold them.”

If SIAFD was unable to hold a 2021

SIAFD event, all site fees paid (less any

credit card booking fees) would be 100%

reimbursed, McLeod said.

Held at Kirwee every two years and

renowned for its demonstrations, SIAFD

was the country’s longest-running Field

Days and the largest Field Days in the

South Island.

McLeod said the event was unusual in

the New Zealand field days community

for allocating sites based on industry – a

policy which made it easy for visitors to

find and compare products.

“We are one of the oldest and largest

agricultural events in the South Island;

going back 70 years, it focuses on

opportunities to view machines in

their working state and reinforcing the

relationship between farmers, service

providers, scientists and technical

experts,” she said.

As a non-profit organisation, SIAFD

directed all surplus back into running

the event or gives or gives it away

as community donations or into

scholarships.

SIAFD had been busy making

improvements on site and to its processes

since the 2019 event, highlighted by the

introduction of a short, medium and

long strategic plan, focusing on the event

as well as community and committee

development.

After consultation with exhibitors,

SIAFD had introduced discounted site

fees for the purchase of multiple sites,

more ticket allocation for exhibitors and a

larger demonstration area.

There was now also electronic admission

ticketing, better toilet facilities, smaller

lifestyle sites in a more condensed area

and exhibitor links on the SIAFD website.

Exhibitors would soon be able to pay via

credit card or invoice, as preferred.

McLeod said the event’s purpose was

now clearer, thanks partly to assistance

from Philip Roth and Becky Derrick at

BDO who worked on the organisational

mission with the SIAFD Executive.

SIAFD’s vision was to provide a

“progressive agricultural event whilst

supporting our community and

developing committee members” and

the people involved would commit

to standards based on an ethos of

community, camaraderie, collaboration

and commitment, she said.

Spring Lawn Care

A lush green lawn is something many of us strive for, and

now is the time to put in the hard work! Getting the right

balance of water, fertiliser and mowing are key factors in

creating that vibrant green lawn.

Top tips

- Establish a regular watering pattern so your lawn has

WEEDONS chased down early

country cricket front-runners

Sefton in a nailbiter on Saturday.

Wins for Weedons, Leeston-

Southbridge, Darfield and

Ohoka at the weekend have

shown that the CRV Ambreed

Country Premier One Day

2020/21 cricket competition will

be hotly-contested this season.

At Sefton Park, the home

XI was in early trouble losing

stalwart opener Tim Harrison (7

runs) and returning stars Matt

Laffey (5) and Lance Taylor (1)

early.

Weedons’ opening bowlers

Arnav Deb and Charlie Robson

reduced Seals to 15/3 after nine

overs.

A composed 29 runs off 71

balls from Brent Fleming righted

the ship before some aggressive

lower order play from Nigel

Granger (30 off 28) and Jed Roberts

(36 off 32) saw Sefton post

149/8 in their allotted 45 overs.

A classy 75 off 88 balls from

wicketkeeper and opening

Weedons batsman Todd Inness

set up the run chase well.

But with little help, and when

he was removed by Roberts in

the 27 th over with the score at

114/4, Weedons appeared to be

blowing a solid away win.

Again it was Robson who

came to the party, and his composed

unbeaten 32 guided his

side to a nervy two-wicket win in

the 37 th over.

One of Canterbury’s best white

ball batsmen last season, Jack

Boyle, has had a horror run to

the new season.

At Southbrook Park on Saturday,

he looked like his form

had finally returned, getting

his ‘Brook side off to a hot start

against Darfield.

Boyle cruised to a run-a-ball

30 before his renewed luck disappeared

and he was run out by

Tom Dempster.

After being 38/0, the Brook

capitulated to be all out for just

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

105 in the 28 th over.

Jesse Frew’s medium pace

proved quality at the top of the

innings, but Jackson Pauling

claimed the best figures, with

4/20 off 6.1 overs.

Darfield knocked off the tiny

target in just 14.3 overs, with upand-coming

star Liam Foulkes

making 28 and Frew topping off

a fine day with a whirlwind 33

not out.

Cheviot’s shaky start to the

new season continued on Saturday

with a crushing nine wicket

loss to Ohoka.

At Mandeville, the visiting

Magpies were rolled for a meagre

131 inside 343 overs.

Left-arm paceman Hamish

Williams was chief destroyer,

grabbing a four wicket haul,

while being well-supported by

Austin Hamilton, Jordan Belton,

and Paul Miller.

Coming off a century last week

against Lincoln, Daniel Lyons

continued his fine form with a

run-a-ball unbeaten 75, with the

Ohoka Swamphens romping to a

nine-wicket win in the 24 th over.

Half-centuries from Calvin

Scott (52 runs off 119 balls) and

David Fulton (56 off 63) lifted

up the run

chase.

Oxford-Rangiora to a respectable

177/7 in their first innings

against Leeston-Southbridge at

Leeston Park.

In reply, it was all down to

one man. Harry Chamberlain

showed why he’s just been

selected for the Canterbury

men’s A team by single-handedly

guiding his team to an eight

wicket win.

Chamberlain smashed an

incredible 114 not out off just 82

balls, including eight sixes, while

no other Lee-Bridge batsman got

past 13.

Leeston-Southbridge got over

the line, eight wicket down, with

14 overs to spare.

Lincoln had the bye.

Pots are a perfect way to get

children involved in gardening

THE END of October is a

favourite time of year for many

gardeners, it is the traditional

period for planting out a full

range of summer vegetables

(and flowers) into a prepared

garden, whether it’s in the

ground or raised beds.

But don’t panic if you haven’t

prepared your soil for planting

yet. Mix in plenty of compost

into your existing soil now to

a depth of 1-1.5 spade depth

before you plant out.

Delicious summer veggies to

plant out are beans, beetroot,

carrots, celery, corn, cucumber,

lettuce, onions, peas, pumpkin,

radish, potatoes, spinach,

tomatoes and zucchini.

For plants that climb or need

support like peas, beans or

tomatoes, always put in your

support structure before you

plant your seedling so as not to

disturb the roots later on.

A good tip is to make sure

you water regularly and to

a plant’s requirements, for

example, more water for leafy

crops such as lettuce or fruiting

varieties such as tomato

and strawberries. During the

early summer growing months

(through to early December)

side dress with fertiliser at 3-4

weekly intervals. Water it in

well.

INTRIGUE: You can grow many vegetables in pots, get children interested at an

early age.

If you have limited space but

still want to grow your own,

then start a container garden

instead. You can grow many

vegetables successfully in pots

or containers, especially with

the different types of dwarf or

mini-varieties now available.

Growing in pots is also a great

way to get children involved in

gardening. There are a couple

of things you need to do to

ensure a bumper crop.

Choosing the right sized

container is important; people

tend to select smaller pots, but

make sure you choose a decent

size. What you plant your veges

in is crucial, so use good quality

potting or container mixes

as they contain well balanced,

slow release nutrients and have

moisture retaining qualities.

It’s a good idea to change

the soil every time you want to

grow a new crop, as nutrients

and water holding capabilities

can get depleted. Position your

pot or container in a warm

sunny, north facing position,

away from strong winds.

Do small succession

plantings of fast growing

summer vegetables so you do

not have them all cropping at

once.

Selwyn District Plan

PRIVATE PLAN CHANGE 64

Hughes Development Limited has lodged a private plan change request with Selwyn District

Council pursuant to Clause 21 of the First Schedule, Resource Management Act 1991

Plan Change 64 (PC64) proposes to change the Selwyn District Plan to rezone approximately

83 ha of land at Rolleston from Rural (Inner Plains) Zone to Living Z Zone, to facilitate the

future development of approximately 930 residential sites.

The land proposed to be rezoned is in two blocks, each containing multiple properties.

The first block occupies 48 ha in the triangular block bounded by Goulds Road, East

Maddisons Road and Selwyn Road. The second block has an area of approximately 35 ha

and is bounded by Selwyn Road and Springston Rolleston Road, and existing residential

development to the west.

PC64 proposes amendments to the Selwyn District Plan that include:

· amending the District Planning Maps to rezone the subject land

· incorporating outline development plans to coordinate and guide the future development of

the areas.

The plan change request and the assessment of why it is needed can be read at Council’s

Rolleston Headquarters and Rolleston Library and can be viewed online at service centres

and public libraries in Darfield, Leeston, Lincoln and Rolleston or at www.selwyn.govt.nz.

Submissions

Any person or organisation may make a submission supporting or opposing any aspect

of this plan change. Submissions must be written and in accordance with Form 5 of the

Resource Management Regulations and is available from any Council Service Centre or on

the website.

Submissions may be:

Delivered to: A Council service centre in Darfield, Lincoln, Leeston or Rolleston.

Faxed to: (03) 347 2799 (if you fax your submission please post or deliver a copy to the

details above)

Emailed to: submissions@selwyn.govt.nz

At a later date, all submissions received will be summarised and published. Further

submissions will then be invited, allowing certain persons and organisations to support or

oppose any of the initial submissions. A Council hearing will then be arranged to consider

all submissions, after which the Council will decide whether to reject or approve the plan

change. Any submitter who is not satisfied with the Council’s decision may then appeal to

the Environment Court.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

New kids on the block

are ready to rock

Say hello to Sue and Paul Robinson of RE/MAX

real estate. They’ll eventually take up permanent

residence in central Rolleston but for now they’re

sharing space in the Rolleston Square Helloworld

Travel office (which they also own) so they can

focus on making the property market experience a

positive one for both buyers and sellers.

Paul says: “We’re vibrant, energetic, and we love

people; we love our local community. We also want

our customers to succeed. We do that by helping

them find the right property fit.”

Sue and Paul are both licensed real estate agents

with a wealth of knowledge to make sure you get

the best result. They’re a vibrant team who clearly

love what they do, plus they have the luxury of

leveraging the tech and marketing prowess of

a global brand. And they walk the walk when

it comes to their community focus—Paul is a

volunteer firefighter and Sue is Chair for Darfield

High School board.

They’re no strangers to the market with a decade

of experience between them, and they love nothing

more than helping locals buy and sell their indemand

homes—so everyone wins. But they aren’t

just buying and selling houses, they provide the care

and service needed to give people choices on how

they want to live their life.

Sue says: “RE/MAX is the number 1 real estate

company globally and is successful in 116 countries.

We want to serve the local community by giving

vendors the best possible outcomes and help them

make informed financial decisions.”

Using state-of-the-art technology that has a

global reach, buyers and sellers can expect greater

exposure and more opportunities in the exciting

Selwyn market. But it takes skill and expertise to

negotiate property deals and take care of all the tiny

details, so that’s where RE/MAX comes in—they’re

bold, innovative and all set to prove they should be

the go-to for real estate opportunities.

Whether you’re a first-time buyer or a keen

investor, if you’re considering your real estate

options in the Selwyn market, you can reach them

at www.remax.co.nz or on 021 409 050.

Sue and Peter Robinson of RE/MAX are

Rolleston’s vivacious new property team.

[Edition datE]

Looking for a Property?

What really counts

You are in the market for a new property,

scrolling the Internet, examining

properties for sale and zeroing in on those

with potential. They might be in locations

that offer cheaper land, larger houses, or

convenience to work or school. You may

have visited show homes and open homes

becoming confused, overwhelmed or

swept away with emotional factors like

having everything new, or extra features

such as three car garaging.

To be happy with your choice, list the

features that you need, considering:

• Family space – Is there room for

the children to play indoors and for

television and entertainment units?

Should this be open plan or separated?

• Kitchen – What needs to be in your

kitchen? How serious are you about

a butler’s pantry? Is it a whim or

something that offers a practical solution

to the way you use your kitchen?

• Bedroom sizes – What are optimum

sizes? Smaller bedrooms may translate

to slightly lower building costs while

extra space can be useful. When looking

at existing homes, consider whether the

size of each bedroom is sufficient.

• Garaging – A standard double garage

once two cars are parked there offers

little space for the toys. What toys

do you have and could they live with

the lawnmower in a garden shed, a

cheaper option to three car garaging?

If the budget allows and a larger garage

with workshop is important, make it a

selection priority.

• Size of land – Lifestyle properties offer

space for children, pets, hobbies, an

expansive garden and perhaps a homerun

business but they require work so

are not for everyone and a compact

section might be more sensible if a tight

budget or busy lifestyle.

• Bathrooms – Second and third

bathrooms are great in homes with

teenagers and a wet shower room is

ideal for young children. A bath might

be fashionable though is often not used

and its absence could mean a more

spacious bathroom.

• Laundry – Would a laundry in the

garage do the job?

• Storage – How much storage do you

need? Weigh up what can truly be

stored in the garage once vehicles are

in, a preference in winter. Garages vary

in size so check the size to ensure your

vehicles will fit. Look also at where

else the house offers storage capacity

such as in hall cupboards, a large hot

water cylinder cupboard, wardrobes

(check their width and depth), walkin

robe, attic storage trusses, as well as

the potential for hooks and shelving

in the garage for bikes, tools, garden

equipment and even kayaks.

• Off-street parking – How many

vehicles can be parked on the driveway?

Will this space be sufficient?

• Garden - Is there sufficient space

for your children to play or for

entertaining?

A checklist will allow you to determine

what will suit your needs, the point of

the exercise, saving you time looking at

properties or potential house designs

while assisting you to decide whether

to buy a new or existing home with

both options having advantages and

disadvantages.

A solid performing 184ha, well located Dairy Farm that has been in the family for generations. The well established

Dairy Farm has good fertile soils, low-cost irrigation water, shelter, and well-cared-for pasture, which reflects in the

grass growth and ability to exceed average efficient production. Housing, cowshed, calf-rearing facilities and

general shedding is well maintained and of a good standard. Overall, this is a well-presented dairying opportunity,

close to Christchurch City and many recreational activities. The property currently has a milking platform of 160ha,

currently producing approximately 221,000kgMS, this season is budgeted to do 220,000kgMS from 500 cows off

the platform area of 160ha.

FINAL NOTICE

Springston 284 Goulds Road

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 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 is

running approximately 3.2 cows per hectare at peak milk, producing approximately 460kgMS per cow, 1,465kgMS

per hectare, the approximate farm working costs of $4.15kgMS. The 40-bail rotary dairy shed has been fully

upgraded in the last two years.
