Jill and James prepare for

seventh wedding anniversary

Seven years after

walking down the

aisle with a Lyttleton

community of about

100 in attendance, Jill

and James Dobinson,

a Down’s syndrome

couple, will celebrate

their anniversary next

month. Avneesh

Vincent reports

“I FELT HAPPY and excited. You

can see that in this picture,” said

James as he held a framed photo of

him and his wife Jill in their wedding

attire.

They were, in fact, the first

couple to be wed in Christchurch’s

Transitional Cathedral.

“I remember, both of them

wanted to get married for so long, I

was just happy to see their dreams

come true,” said Jill’s sister-in-law,

Anne-Marie Robinson.

She said, for the wedding, the

couple had collected “time credits”

from the Lyttelton time bank by

delivering community newspapers

and gardening.

The bank then used those credits

in exchange to acquire professional

services from the community for

setting up their wedding.

“It was such a fun day.”

PUBLIC FEEDBACK is being

sought for the development of

the highly-anticipated Bays Skate

Park in Sumner.

People will have until November

9 to have their say on the city

council’s draft designs for the

planned skate and scooter park

at 26 Nayland St.

The city council has said the

features included in the design

will meet the needs of beginner

to intermediate skateboarders

and scooter riders.

“Signage will be included on

completion of the park with

some helpful guidelines on how

to use the park. This will be similar

signage to what is currently

installed at our skate parks in

Halswell and in Lyttelton,” the

city council said.

Feedback is also being sought

for the proposed landscape plan

for the Sumner Village Green.

Submissions for this project also

close on November 9.

The village green will sit beside

the skate park at 24 Nayland St.

The draft landscape plan for the

green proposes a barbecue unit

being installed, with various

seating amongst a vast green

area.

Once public consultation for

the two projects has closed, the

city council will analyse the feedback

and produce a report which

will be given to the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board for approval.

“At this stage, we are expecting

that the decision by the board

will be made sometime in March

2021,” the city council said.

PROGRESS:

The draft

design of

the Bays

Skate Park

has been

developed

by Rich

Landscapes.

Call for feedback on projects

If approved by the board,

construction of the skate park is

expected to start in September

2021.

Construction of the village

green is currently unfunded and

well not be scheduled until there

are sufficient funds available.

• Submissions on the

proposals for the two

projects can be made at

Collett’s Corner

nears final

design phase

LYTTELTON development

Collett’s Corner is set to move

into its final design phase.

THe crowdfunding campaign

closes tomorrow but by Monday

it had reached just over $900,000,

exceeding its goal of $800,000.

The public can buy shares in the

project at $120 per share with the

aim of raising up to $1.4m.

Founding partner Camia Young

said with the minimum funding

being secured the project would

head to the final design phase,

which will start on Monday and

would last about a year.

Those behind the development

are forecasting an average return

of about 11 per cent over a 10-year

period for those who invest at this

stage.

The three-storey communityowned

$14 million project by Ohu

Developments is planned for a

974 sq m site on the corner of

London and Oxford Sts.

It will feature a wellness centre,

hospitality outlets with shops on

the ground floor, and 20 privatelyowned

apartments above.

The project gained resource

consent in March, with a goal

to open by June 2023 – about

six months later than what was

forecast before the Covid-19

pandemic struck.

Couple first met on a bus

• From page 1

Jill said she remembers a funny

thing about her pink cardigan

she wore that day.

“It was a bit difficult getting

into the dress, maybe because

I ate too much,” said Jill as she

blushed.

However, the couple’s story,

started 15 years ago when they

first met on a bus. They didn’t

communicate much but just

looked at each other.

“We automatically married, at

first sight, that’s what happened

basically,” said James.

A few years later, both of them

moved in together along with a

flatmate and started living independently,

until they got engaged

and later married.

“We gradually fell in love,

which was quite nice.”

Before the couple met, Jill

used to live with her late mother

Margaret Jefferies who was

well-known in the Lyttelton community

for her internationallyrecognised

initiatives.

Margaret took Jill into her care

after her parents divorced and

taught her skills for independent

living.

“I can cook and can bake. I can

swim and do the breaststroke

and do the butterfly, and dance.”

James said that Jill had won

TALENT: James and Jill Dobinson busking near the

farmers’ market in Lyttelton.

several medals at regional swimming

competitions.

On the other hand, James lived

in the “independence house” in

Christchurch which helped him

learn how to flat, catch a bus,

cook, and so forth. He lived with

one of his two brothers after their

parents passed away.

“I remember, my mum taught

me piano lessons.”

He said he started playing the

piano when he was 15 and then

gradually started busking as a

hobby.

Jill and James can be seen

busking in the streets of

Lyttelton, near the farmers’

market.

While James plays a 60-key

Casio synthesiser, playing The

Beatles music, Jill can be seen

energetically dancing in a multicoloured

outfit.

The couple have plans for a special

dinner on the Saturday night

of their anniversary.

And that means they won’t

miss their weeknight viewing slot

of Shortland Street.

Pontoon idea to

improve wharf access

A FLOATING pontoon may be

added to the Diamond Harbour

wharf to improve access to

passenger ferries and other boats

that call into the harbour.

Accessibility issues with the existing

wharf meant it can often be

difficult for passengers embarking

or disembarking from vessels.

“The steps are often underwater

or slippery. It is difficult to manoeuvre

bikes or pushchairs and

it is simply not suitable for wheelchairs,”

said city council regional

parks manager Kay Holder.

“To make access easier and

safer for everyone, we are proposing

to add a floating pontoon to

the south side of wharf, where

there is the most protection from

the wind and the tides.”

The decommissioned crane that

currently sits on the wharf will

need to be relocated in order to accommodate

the new pontoon.

“As well as adding a floating

pontoon, we’re proposing to

upgrade the existing decking,

handrails and seating on the

main wharf and to improve the

bike shed storage,” said Holder.

“We’re also looking at how we

can provide some shade on the

wharf and improve the lighting.”

If the city council decides

to proceed with its plans for

SAFETY: The city council

has proposed to install

a pontoon at Diamond

Harbour Wharf to improve

access to boats and other

vessels at the harbour.

PHOTO: NEWSLINE ​

upgrading the wharf, it will need

to apply to Environment Canterbury

for resource consent.

“Before we move to the next

phase of the project, we want to

get the public’s feedback on our

plans. People can share their

views via Have Your Say until

November 11,” she said.

“Council staff will also be

running a drop-in session at

the Diamond Harbour wharf

on November 7 between 8.30

and 10.30am where people can

find out more about what is

proposed.”

Reports of big cat in Heathcote Valley

• By Matt Slaughter

A MYSTERIOUS big black

cat reportedly spotted at the

Halswell Quarry last month may

now be on the prowl in Heathcote

Valley.

There have been reports

a big cat has been in several

Canterbury locations including

the Halswell Quarry.

A Christchurch man even

called talk back radio, claiming

he had also seen the cat at the

quarry. Halswell-Hornby-

Riccarton Community Board

member Mike Mora heard the

call and discussed the sighting at

a board meeting.

Now Tom Lewis, his uncle

Andrew Lewis and Tom’s son,

Theo, are the latest to claim they

saw the creature.

Tom said it was spotted among

the trees and long grass at the

back of their house on Horotane

Valley Rd.

Said Tom: “My son Theo first

saw it [on October 15]. [He said]

‘dad look at that huge black cat

in the back paddock’.

“I thought: ‘Oh yeah’. Five

minutes later [Theo said] ‘dad

that cat’s massive’.

“Then I took a look from 85m

away and it was huge.

“[I] first saw it sitting up.

Looked maybe 800mm tall. Then

MYSTERIOUS: This big, black cat-like creature was snapped just metres from a property

on Horotane Valley Rd, Heathcote Valley.

it moved to behind the

tree where it sat down,” Tom

said.

He took photos of the animal

through binoculars.

He told Andrew and his other

family members at home to take

a look.

“All of us [were] blown away

with the size,” he said.

At dusk, Tom took his deer

tracking dog Moose out to find

the big cat.

They were successful and he

says they got within 10m of the

cat before it ran off.

“It was larger than Moose who

is a hungarian vizsla,” said Tom.

There has been a re-emergence

of reported sightings of big black

cats in recent months. Over the

years, the mysterious animal

has also been spotted in Otago,

Southland and Marlborough.

Hospitality

beckons

over-50s

THE NUMBER of Christchurch

baby boomers signing up to

work in the hospitality industry

has skyrocketed over the last six

months.

Data from Barcats, a hospitality

platform which connects

venues to job seekers, shows

Christchurch has experienced

the highest increase in over-50s

signing up to work in pubs,

clubs, restaurants and cafes.

Christchurch has experienced

an 875 per cent increase, followed

by Auckland with a 325

per cent increase.

There has been a 550 per cent

national increase in over-50s

signing up for work in the hospitality

industry.

Barcats founder and chief

executive Jeffrey Williams said

he thinks the increase is a result

of Covid-19.

“I think most people thought

that hospitality is just for young

people or travellers.

“One of the things we’ve seen

as we’ve reopened hospitality in

Christchurch after the lockdown,

is that actually when they want

to start re-employing, the people

they had just weren’t there

anymore.”

Garden plant hits peninsula natives

A COMMON garden plant

has hopped the fence and is

wreaking havoc on Lyttelton

Harbour’s native vegetation.

Spur valerian, a cottage garden

plant with pink, magenta

or white flowers, is spreading

across rocky outcrops and coastal

cliffs around Banks Peninsula

and Lyttelton Harbour.

“Don’t let that

pretty splash of

pink fool you

– spur valerian

has no place

in our natural

environment,”

Di Carter

said city council

park ranger Di

Carter.

“Spur valerian, originally

from the Mediterranean, is an

aggressive species and a serious

threat to the rare native plants

that call Whakaraupō home.”

The rocky volcanic bluffs and

coastal cliffs of Whakaraupō

Harbour and Banks Peninsula

are home to many rare and fragile

native species found nowhere

else in the world. Many of these

plants are threatened with extinction

from weed invasion.

Spur valerian seeds have

blown from gardens around

Whakaraupō Harbour. Once

in the rocks it grows into

thickets and outcompetes small

plants, including one of the

THREAT: Don’t let the pretty colour fool you – spur valerian is wreaking havoc in

Lyttelton.

most threatened species in New

Zealand, the Banks Peninsula

forget-me-not, which is found

naturally around Mt Evans, and

the Banks Peninsula sun hebe.

Both are endemic to Banks Peninsula

and found nowhere else

in the world.

City council and Environment

Canterbury have provided

resources to help control spur

valerian on private land. Park

rangers are working closely with

landowners to prevent spread

beyond Whakaraupō and to

protect the special plants within

the Whakaraupō basin.

The control work covers 18

sites and will run twice a year in

spring and autumn, for the next

six years.

“Flowering occurs in two

main bursts, so control is done

in spring and autumn before

any flowering plants set seed,”

Carter said.

“We need to carry out ongoing

survey and control to make

sure no new plants are spreading

beyond the containment zone.”

People who wish to keep the

plants in their gardens can help

reduce the seed volume by removing

flowers prior to seeding,

or remove and replace with less

spreading garden plants, such as

lavender for the “cottage” look

or a local native plant like the

New Zealand linen flax (Linum

monogynum).

These projects, combined with

roadside control to prevent the

spread along road corridors

beyond Corsair Bay, Governors

Bay, Church Bay and Diamond

Harbour, and with help from

gardeners in the townships of

Whakaraupō, will help protect

the special rock outcrop and

coastal cliff vegetation across the

wider Peninsula.

Spring festival

poetry and song

CHRISTCHURCH IS getting

Every Day is Open Day

Once again, the New Zealand educational curriculum is

in the firing line – and it is perhaps hard to argue that it

shouldn’t be.* On the all-important international stage, the

latest data from PISA, the Programme for International

Student Assessment, indicates our Kiwi kids are on the

slide. The downward trend in results over the last decade

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

Homesteads

The Story of New Zealand’s Grand Country Houses

by debra Millar

A stunning tribute to the grand homes built by New Zealand’s pioneering pastoralists,

Homesteads shares a remarkable legacy of this country’s rural heritage. These houses

are among some of the country’s most iconic, many of them surrounded by equally

notable gardens, and all still lived in today. Jane Ussher’s evocative photographs

capture the unique character and architectural diversity of each homestead, while Debra

Millar explores the stories that have shaped these landmark rural properties through

generations. Featured homesteads include Mount Peel Station, Longbeach Estate, Terrace

Station, Surrey Hills and Blue Cliffs Station in Canterbury; Gwavas Garden and Oruawharo

in Hawke’s Bay; Merchiston Station and Pukemarama Station in Manawatu; Puketiti

Station on the North Island’s remote East Coast; and Kuriheka Estate in Otago. This is a

book that showcases an extraordinary range of architecture, interiors and gardens, and

brings the past into the present day.

Wild at Heart

The Dangers and Delights of a Nomadic Life

by Miriam lancewood

Gripping sequel to the international bestseller Woman in the Wilderness, Miriam

Lancewood’s story of the quest for a simple life, unfettered by society’s norms.

Miriam Lancewood’s first book Woman in the Wilderness told her story of living for seven

years in the wilderness of New Zealand with her husband, hunting and gathering, and

roaming the mountains like nomads.

Miriam and Peter left New Zealand to explore other wild places. They walked 2000 km

through the forests of Europe and along the coast of Turkey, mostly camping under trees

and cooking by fire.

They lived on the edge, embracing insecurity, and found the unexpected: sometimes it

was pure bliss, sometimes it was terrifying.

But when they moved on to the Australian desert, they met with disaster.

The Second Life of Tiger Woods

by Michael Bamberger

From Michael Bamberger, author most recently of the New York Times bestseller Men in Green, the

intimate and extraordinary Tiger Woods comeback story, in which the iconic golfer—his game,

body, and life in shambles—makes not only a triumphant return to the winner’s circle (his 2019

Masters title), but discovers along the way more widespread love and admiration than he had ever

known before.

Only Two For Everest

How a First Ascent by Riddiford and Cotter Shaped Climbing History

by lynley McKinnon

The First New Zealand Himalayan Expedition, in 1951, was initiated by Earle Riddiford,

who with Ed Cotter and Pasang Dawa Lama made the first ascent of Mukut Parbat, their

target peak in the Garhwal Himalaya. Accompanying them on that expedition, though not

to that summit, were two other New Zealand climbers, Edmund Hillary and George Lowe.

Hearing of the success on Mukut Parbat, the New Zealand Alpine Club suggested to the

Alpine Club in London that acclimatized New Zealanders would be a valuable asset on

the forthcoming 1951 British Reconnaissance of Mt Everest, to be led by Eric Shipton.

This resulted in an invitation for two New Zealanders to join the party: thrilling news the

four climbers received while they were ensconced in the hill-country village of Ranikhet. A

day and a half of bitter dispute rent the party asunder. Which two should go to Everest? In

this enthralling narrative, journalist Lyn McKinnon tells the stories of Earle Riddiford and

Ed Cotter, two extraordinary New Zealanders whose climbing achievements were forever

eclipsed by the exploits of others.

Wild Horses of the World

by Kelly Wilson

An honest study of the diverse beauty of the world’s wild horses and the harsh, yet

picturesque landscapes they call home.

Wild horses have been an important part of wildlife on Earth for centuries, yet many herds

now face serious threats — and very few people can claim to have seen them galloping free

across the plains, or scaling mountain passes.

Kelly Wilson has. For this book, she spent years researching the world’s wildest herds,

travelling the globe and living among them. From the remote forests of Canada and

snowcapped mountains of America, to the unforgiving deserts of Australia and windswept

beaches of New Zealand, Kelly has captured a raw and honest portrayal of these animals

— their rugged beauty, their unique way of life, and the harsh, yet picturesque landscapes

they call home.

Live the adventure alongside her, as Kelly looks into the secret lives of wild horses, how

their populations are managed, and the many hardships they must overcome in their fight

for survival.

Tasty Bites

Make some marvellous muffins

A QUICK AND tasty snack,

muffins are popular with just

about everyone and these sweet,

moist date and bran muffins have

the advantage of being high in

fibre as well as delicious.

The date mixture has to be cool

before you add it so make it in

advance. You can speed up the

cooling time by placing the pot of

hot dates in a sink of cold water.

And, of course we all know

that, when it comes to muffins,

the less mixing of the batter that

you can get away with, the better.

Bran and Date Muffins

Ingredients

1 cup dates

¾ cup boiling water

Line a 12-hole muffin pan with

oven to 190 deg C.

Place the flour, baking powder

and salt into a large bowl.

Add the grated cheese and mix

through so that it is well dispersed.

Melt the butter and mix it with

the lightly beaten eggs and milk.

Break the feta into smallish

pieces and gently stir it through

the egg mix along with the finely

chopped tomatoes, basil or parsley.

Add this wet mix to the dry

ingredients and stir lightly so that

it is only just mixed through.

Spoon into the muffin cups and

bake for 10-15min.

There are a number of

variations that work well with

this recipe. You can add a little

chopped ham, salami or cooked

bacon if you wish or cut out the

feta and add your own favourite

cheese.

Cheese and Onion

Muffins

Just leave out the feta and

tomatoes from the previous

recipe and replace them with

a couple of finely sliced onions

that have been cooked in the

microwave or a pan, with a little

butter until very soft. The onion

becomes lovely and sweet and

makes the muffins moist as well.

Add about half a cup extra of

grated cheese.

Wine

On the trail of red grape tribidrag

• By Mark Henderson

MENTIONING THE Croatian

red grape tribidrag will likely

result in blank looks. Its claim

to fame, however, is that it was

the end point of a great deal

of research and DNA profiling

centred around zinfandel, most

commonly (and extensively)

found in California.

There had been suspicions that

zinfandel might be connected

or related to primitivo, which

is grown in Puglia, the “heel”

of Italy. Advancements in DNA

profiling technology in the 1990s

led to the confirmation of this

hypothesis, with further research

unearthing a parent/offspring

relationship to the Croatian

grape plavac mali.

This discovery led scientists

to the Dalmatia area of Croatia,

where a local grape called

crljenak kastelanski was found to

be a genetic match to zinfandel.

Further research on this latter

grape led to the discovery of

a genetic match with the even

more ancient Croatian variety

tribidrag.

Tribidrag/crljenak kastelanski,

Croatia’s most successful grape

export, thrives under its new

monikers in both Puglia and the

United States, where it initially

arrived on the East Coast in the

1820s before being taken west

during the great gold rush.

In California, its roughly

20,000ha make it the secondmost-planted

red grape after

cabernet sauvignon and some

60 per cent greater than the

plantings in Puglia.

It is also found in Montenegro,

Mexico, other US states, the

Languedoc and Australia,

while the latest New Zealand

Winegrowers figures list a scant

2ha planted in New Zealand.

Wines made from zinfandel/

primitivo are typically opulent,

lush, relatively high in alcohol,

with bold fruit flavours such

as raspberry, blueberry, dark

cherry, plum and jam, backed

by spice, liquorice and pepper

characters. Super-ripe examples

can move into the pruney, porty

spectrum, while lighter versions

emphasise red fruits.

Mostly flying solo but

sometimes seen in blends, they

are generously flavoured and

supple, invariably offering great

bang for buck.

2018 McManis Family

Vineyards California

Zinfandel

Price: $25.99

Rating: Excellent

Bonfire smoke, darker fruits,

milk chocolate, spices and a

creamy note with time.

Initially rounded and supple,

a mix of red and dark fruits with

chocolate, yet brightness and

freshness too.

With time red berryfruit

and cranberry take the lead,

the structure builds, the wine

becoming more coiled, oak

spices framing the close. Nice

vibrancy here.

Salento Primitivo

Price: $21.99

Rating: Very good to excellent

Darker, almost brooding

expression, berry jam, wisps of

herb, savoury notes. The palate

continues the savoury theme,

with prunes, redcurrant and

tangy berryfruit.

Evoking the hot Italian sun.

Crunchy, chewiness to the

tannins with a sweet, lifted fruit

nose evolving.

Super-ripe fruit, yet a tingly

quality keeps this in line.

Fascinatingly different from

the US expression.

Rating: Excellent to

Perfume, cedary oak,

Mixed summer berries, plums,

dried herbs and umami nuances

revealing themselves.

The fruit fills the mouth, neatly

balanced by freshening acidity,

with lovely complexity and a

long finish.

Manages to be hedonistic

rather than bombastic. Huge

pleasure in a glass of this.

38A Major Hornbrook Road, Mt Pleasant

Deadline Sale: 5pm Wed 18 Nov (unless sold prior)

6 Bedrooms | 1 Living | 2 Bathrooms | 2 Garages | Listing: bayleys.co.nz/5513388

Very well positioned on the desirable

lower slopes of St Andrews Hill,

this traditional weatherboard home

experiences panoramic views across the

estuary to the Kaikouras beyond, as well as

to the Southern Alps. A fabulous location

to enjoy those ever changing sunrises and

sunsets.

The house is well situated at the top of

the generous 931sqm section, overlooking

the well-established, terraced gardens. The

private, rear section gently slopes to the

post-earthquake built, double garage.

Extended or large families will benefit

from the six bedroom capacity, with three

doubles on the ground level and three

singles upstairs, each level with their own

bathroom. All bedrooms enjoy those

magnificent panoramic views.

With the delightful mid-century,

interior décor, there is certainly

opportunity to enhance and add value to

the property. The owners have moved to

a smaller residence in the same area, so

their motivation is definitely to sell.

This desirable location is close to the

Mt Pleasant School and also the newly

completed Redcliffs School. It is also a

short distance to the Ferrymead Hub,

parks, walking and biking tracks and the

Sumner beaches and surf.

Mercedes SUV can be sporty or tame

THERE’S BEEN a lot of debate in

the Star Media newsroom lately as

to what constitutes a four-wheeldrive

vehicle.

When reporting, there’s a general

belief that anything that sits high

and looks like an enlarged station

wagon is a 4WD.

Of course, that’s not the case,

many of today’s tall wagons just

have drive to front or rear wheels

only, and they fall into the category

of sport utility vehicles. To complicate

the matter many SUVs do have

four-wheel-drive.

One car which squarely fits into

the SUV and 4WD categories,

and adds a luxury element as well,

is Mercedes-Benz’s GLA 250, an

entirely new model that has just

landed in New Zealand.

The GLA has been a steady seller

for the brand, and the newcomer

will easily pick-up where its predecessor

left off.

At just over 4.4m the GLA is

firstly a compact SUV, but one

that is versatile and capable as an

all round family vehicle, and one

which can be sporty or tame all in

the one package.

The GLA lands here in four variants

depending on power outputs,

all engines have four-cylinders. The

200 (2WD) has a 1.3-litre unit, the

250, AMG 35 and AMG 45 S have

the same basic 2-litre engine with

varying power outputs depending

on how much turbo boost

you require as a driver and, as I’ve

alluded to, those three models get

Mercedes Benz’s 4Matic all-corner

drive system.

The GLA 250 lists at $86,500;

others in the range start at $73,300

and end at $126,400 for the full

noise 45 S.

In recent years I’ve evaluated several

Mercedes-Benz vehicles with

the low power 2-litre turbocharged

engine, and have never been disappointed.

The GLA 250 sits with that

well, it is capable and competent,

it’s just that it doesn’t have the massive

injection of power that comes

with its AMG stablemates.

Interior features are extensive

and too numerous to mention

but I must make mention of the

large centre screen display which

flows across the dash panel, much

like the size of two iPads joined

together horizontally. Most of the

in-cabin features can be controlled

through it, but if you would prefer

to make adjustments through voice

command, a simple ‘hey Mercedes’

will prompt a reply, and you can

talk to the vehicle instructing it

through a multitude of commands.

Up front sits a 1991cc, twincamshaft,

engine which is rated

with 165kW and 350Nm of torque.

On the subject of figures, it also

MERCEDES-BENZ GLA 250: Four-wheel-drive provides a

feeling of control and balance.

fares quite well with fuel usage,

Mercedes-Benz claiming a 7.5-litre

per 100km combined cycle average.

During my testing time the

trip computer was constantly

listing around 8.5l/100km which

wasn’t that far distant along with a

5l/100km instantaneous reading at

100km/h (engine speed 1500rpm).

The GLA 250 drives through an

eight-speed dual clutch automatic

transmission. The low and close

proximity of ratios allow for a solid,

unbroken flow of power. When the

pressure is on, the GLA 250 will

launch to 100km/h from a standstill

in 6.7sec and easily complete

an 80km/h to 120km/h overtaking

manoeuvre in 5sec. These

are quick times and will satisfy

the performance driver, when the

turbo is boosting strongly the feel

of power is dynamic, inviting spirited

motoring.

I took the test car through the

gentle undulating twists and turns

of the inland scenic route of the

Selwyn district, returning home

through Dunsandel and Lincoln.

The balance and feel of grip is quite

phenomenal through some of those

tight corners heading towards

Ellesmere. Even though the 4Matic

system only comes into play when

grip at the front is marginal, there

is a feeling through the driveline of

control and balance.

Fitted to the GLA 250 are high

profile Continental tyres (235/50

x 19in), and because of their tall

structure they absorb a lot of road

nuances, imparting high levels of

in-cabin comfort. They are also

automatic

• Performance –

• Fuel usage – 7.5l/100km

quiet and allow strong feedback at

the steering wheel along with positive

directional accuracy.

With its 4Matic system the GLA

250 has useful off-the-seal ability.

I didn’t take it off-road bar for a

short burst on a shingle track, but I

can imagine it would be a great car

to tackle the winter skifield access

road or, as we come into summer,

the perfect vehicle to travel to the

peninsula batch.

It is also a good example of why

the word utility is part of the SUV

acronym.

RESOURCE MANAGEMENT ACT 1991

CHRISTCHURCH DISTRICT PLAN

PROPOSED PLAN CHANGE 5

PACKAGE OF CHANGES

Christchurch City Council has initiated Plan Change 5 to the District Plan.

The proposed Plan Change

Proposed Plan Change 5 is a group of plan changes which seeks to:

• Reinforce direction that offices and shops are to be primarily located in the

Central City and commercial centres as well as clarifying the role of these

centres as commercial focal points (5A).

• Clarify and better reflect the intent and outcomes sought in the Commercial

chapter, including the role of centres and the types and scale of retail, offices

and other activities that are anticipated in centres amongst other changes

including definitions (5B).

• Clarify what is sought and/or required in the Industrial chapter, including

clearer direction for the redevelopment of former industrial land for residential

and mixed uses that support good neighbourhood design amongst other

changes including definitions (5C).

• Make sure that home-based businesses are of a type and scale appropriate in

residential and rural areas through various changes including to definitions

(5D).

• Simplify a rule for noise insulation near railways and roads (5E).

• Changes to zoning and overlays on the planning maps for identified sites,

including to reflect what is already happening or anticipated, zone new roads

and open spaces for their intended purpose, as well as realigning the zone

boundaries between Christchurch and our neighbouring Districts, amongst

other changes (5F).

• Make changes arising from the implementation of new national direction that

requires removal of car parking requirements. This includes consequential

changes arising such as a landscaping rule for car parking areas, which is based

on the number of car parks required (5G).

• Provide for antenna associated with telecommunications at an appropriate

scale (5H).

• Enable temporary signs associated with general and local government

elections (candidate and party) and referendum (5I).

More information

The proposed Plan Change and assessment, including the rationale for the

plan change and alternatives considered (as required under section 32 of the

Resource Management Act (RMA)) and supporting information can be viewed

Anyone may make a submission on this Plan Change. Written and electronic

submissions must be in accordance with the prescribed Form 5 of the Resource

Management (Forms, Fees & Procedure) Regulations 2003 or similar. You can

Council gives public notice of its decision on the Plan Change and matters

raised in submissions, or the Environment Court makes an order which grants

any rule immediate effect (RMA, s86B).

Waterfront Wonderland

149 Main Road, Redcliffs 3 bedrooms, 1 living room, 2 bathrooms, 2 car garaging

Magnificently positioned on the water’s edge and showcasing sublime

craftsmanship, everything about Phoenix Cottage is out of the ordinary.

Commanding extraordinary views across Moncks Bay to offer an

unparalleled backdrop to everyday living, this enviable and exclusive

position also benefits from a slipway further enhancing its unique appeal.

Originally constructed circa 1910, this property received an exceptional

and extensive overhaul in the past decade which expertly introduced

modern flair while thoughtfully retaining the home’s everlasting charm.

Found within the superbly placed open plan living and dining area

overlooking the water is the bold and bespoke kitchen. It has been lavished

with attention to detail and incorporates European fittings and appliances,

soft-touch cabinetry, stainless steel benchtops and timeless oak flooring,

with a sliding door offering seamless access out to the patio where you can

admire the enchanting coastal outlook and the rising morning sun.

The bathrooms are adorned with natural stone and include underfloor

heating, with the master

enjoying an ensuite and striking shiplap ceilings that serve as a reminder of

the home’s history and sensational setting.

An immaculate garden lies on the western side with the pergola-crowned

patio providing an idyllic spot for dining while the deck offers a sun-soaked

spot for relaxation in the last of the setting sun.

The distinct, timber-clad Boyd Chamberlin designed garage offers the

ultimate in cohesion, placed behind electric gates and featuring a flushmounted

garage door and walk-through access to the pristine garden.

Situated over the road from Barnett Park and near the amenities in

central Redcliffs, it’s also by the Coastal Pathway and the area’s numerous

recreational opportunities.

This property is, without doubt, a true standout, and given its rarity, you’re

urged to act with haste.

Waterfront Oasis – As Is, Where Is

43 Beachville Road, Redcliffs

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 living rooms, 1 car garaging

Occupying a prime waterfront position and offering plentiful possibilities,

this property is defined by potential and is presented to the market on an

‘as is, where is’ basis. The location is outstanding, capturing sunshine and

sensational views across the water from a supreme Redcliffs setting on the

doorstep of the coastal pathway. The departing vendor has comfortably
