Estuary erosion solutions

under council consideration

POTENTIAL solutions to

address erosion and flood risk

in Southshore and South New

Brighton is expected to cost

millions if implemented.

The city council will consider

proposed options to address the

issue along the estuary edges at

its meeting today.

The

options are

expected to

cost about

$12.5 million

overall says

a report by

city council

staff.

David Griffiths “Earthquake

legacy

issues have been an ongoing concern

for Southshore and South

New Brighton residents,” said

city council head of planning

and strategic transport David

Griffiths.

“Residents have made it

clear to us that, before they are

willing to have a conversation

about how their area could

respond to sea-level rise in the

future, they want these issues

resolved.

“This report aims to address

some of those concerns by

providing recommendations for

how we can reduce the risk of

IMPROVEMENTS: Options to address erosion and flood risk at estuaries in city’s east are being considered. PHOTO: NEWSLINE ​

erosion and flooding along the

estuary edge.”

City council staff propose to

replace or cover structures along

the estuary edge in Southshore

to reduce the erosion risk. This

approach had community

support, and would also significantly

improve the appearance of

the estuary edge.

To reduce the risk of flooding

in Southshore, city council staff

recommend the construction

of an 11.4 RL bund close to the

current Land Information New

Zealand bund.

In South New Brighton, staff

propose to restore the estuary

edge with a cobble beach.

To reduce the flooding

risk, staff recommend a new

bund set up to 100m from the

estuary edge within South New

Brighton Park, between the jetty

near Beatty St and the southern

end of the campground in

Halsey St.

New Avon River pedestrian

and cycle bridges approved

THREE PEDESTRIAN and

cycle bridges crossing the Avon

River are a step closer to reality

after the green light was given to

proceed with its construction.

The Medway St and Snell Pl

Bridges reinstate a pedestrian

and cycle connection

across

the Ōtākaro

Avon River,

which has

been missing

since the

earthquakes.

Andrew

Turner

The Avondale

Bridge is

a new bridge

that will provide

a connection to the future

Eastern Reach wetland restoration

area.

The three bridges, and a new

riverside landing at Dallington,

are being funded by a $13.7 million

grant from the Christchurch

Earthquake Appeal Trust.

City council finance and

performance committee chairman

and Deputy Mayor Andrew

Turner said the bridges will help

reconnect communities on each

side of the Avon River.

“The construction of the

bridges signals the start of the

council’s work to develop the

regeneration area into a valuable

asset for Christchurch,” Turner

said.

“These three bridges signal

an exciting new chapter for the

Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor, as

we start to bring the Regeneration

Plan for the area to life.

GREEN LIGHT:

Construction

on three new

pedestrian

and cycleway

bridges across

the Avon

River is set to

start at the

beginning

of next

year.

PHOTO:

NEWSLINE ​

“We want to encourage

people to come and explore the

Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor,

and these new bridges will

make it significantly easier for

people to develop meaningful

connections to the neighbouring

communities and to the land

itself.”

The city council published

initial bridge designs for community

feedback in June and

used the feedback to refine the

designs of each.

All three bridges will be singlespan,

made from steel truss, with

concrete decks and sliding, jackable

abutments to mitigate lateral

spread.

Work on constructing the

bridges is expected to start in

early 2021.

Stopbank meets

current needs

• From page 1

These options are in response

to several city council resolutions

from August last year regarding

earthquake legacy issues.

Improvements have already

been made to the northern part

of the estuary walkway and

construction is complete on the

southern section of a bund in

South New Brighton, between

Bridge St and South New

Brighton School. Work on the

northern section of the bund will

be completed next year following

the bird-nesting season.

Minor issues have been addressed

following an assessment

of the stopbank between Pages Rd

and Bridge St. Overall, the assessment

showed the stopbank meets

current standards.

Engineering consultancy GHD

is now undertaking an updated

life-safety risk assessment of the

stopbank and this will be a separate

report to the city council once

investigations are complete.

The proposed options to address

erosion and flooding risk are

forecast to cost about $12.5m. The

draft 2021-31 Long Term Plan

allows for $10.5m.

Safe space for young cyclists opens

• By Bea Gooding

LEARNING HOW to ride a bike

and navigating road rules just got a

whole lot easier for children.

The Longview Pl cul-de-sac in

Burwood has been transformed into

a learn to ride track complete with

road markings, stop and give way

signs, pedestrian crossings and mini

obstacles.

Found at the red zone’s East x East

space, the circular track enables

children to learn road rules on

their bikes and scooters without

the pressure of other cars in a fun

environment.

The project was organised by Life

in Vacant Spaces, which works with

community groups by bringing

their ideas to life for events and

activities at underutilised spaces.

Said LiVS director Rachael Shiels:

“The project has been so rewarding

in terms of community involvement

and getting this off the ground. It’s

a really fantastic thing for the east,

and for these communities who

have been through so much.”

Including the track, a fix-it station

will be available to repair bikes, and

children can attend workshops to

learn road rules.

Activities within the 9ha area

was a collaboration between Land

Information NZ and Life in Vacant

Spaces, with funding grants from

the George Sevicke Jones Trust.

TEAM WORK: (From left) – East x East co-ordinator Hannah

Watkinson, Burwood councillor Phil Mauger, Coastal Ward

Community Board member Jo Zervos and Citycare Group’s

Thomas Parackal at the new learn to ride track at its opening on

Saturday.

As the landowner of the Crownowned

red zone area, LINZ has

approved LiVS’ short-term use of

the space.

Volunteers from the Student

Volunteer Army, Rangi Ruru Girls’

School, Cashmere High School,

Christchurch Girls’ High School,

Papanui High School and assistance

from the City Care group helped install

signs, patch potholes, painting

and planting.

The track was first proposed in

2018 after the community wanted

more safe spaces suitable for families,

bikes, and were dog-friendly.

Said Shiels: “Kids are small and

easy to miss by cars, so they’ll be

able to learn with family and friends

out in the open without doing it in

‘real life’.”

The learn to ride track will be in

place for two years, with options to

remain longer if successful.

SKILLS: Michael (left) and Conall Fenton try out the

new learn to ride track in Burwood.

Event to recycle your

electronic waste

EACH YEAR, New

Zealanders create an

average of 19kg of e-waste

per person, which is an

alarming statistic. To raise

awareness, Kilmarnock

Enterprises has teamed

up with the Rotary

Club of Christchurch

Sunrise and Warehouse

Stationery to organise an

electronic recycling day for

Christchurch locals.

As well as putting the

spotlight on New Zealand’s

e-waste problem, the event

that will be be held on November

21, will also raise

awareness of the important

role Kilmarnock plays in

the community.

For over 60 years, the

Christchurch-based charity

has been in the business of

changing lives. Since 1958,

their mission has been to

provide employment opportunities

for individuals

with disabilities.

At Kilmarnock, people

gain experience in a large

variety of work, including

food packing, assembly,

refurbishing and electronic

recycling. By providing an

inclusive and enriching

paid work environment,

their team are encouraged

to unlock their full potential.

In 2017, Kilmarnock

even established a training

academy, to give individuals

with disabilities another

chance to excel in education

and gain NZQA credits.

In addition to breaking

down social barriers,

Kilmarnock is passionate

about making a positive

environmental impact.

After playing a key role in

the Government’s TV Take

Back Programme, they

decided to launch their

own electronic recycling

scheme. The local charity

now processes a range of

electronic items, and provides

both public drop-off

and corporate partnerships

for a small fee.

They dismantle a variety

of e-waste so it can be demanufactured

to recover

the maximum amount of

recyclable materials. This

also ensures hazardous

substances don’t make their

way into landfill.

Recycling these metals

plays an important role

when it comes to conserving

Aotearoa’s natural

resources.

It’s important that we

all actively try to find

ways to reduce our carbon

footprint. That’s how we can

all make a difference.

LITTLE BLUE penguins

are native to New Zealand

and are the smallest of all

world’s penguin species,

and without a doubt, the

cutest of all.

Not that you are likely

to spot them easily as they

only come on shore after

dark and leave again before

daylight. They will spend

the day fishing and have

been spotted as far as

20km offshore to do so.

At the end of the day,

they gather in groups (or

rafts) waiting for darkness

before quickly making

their way to their nests.

These can be in burrows,

under dense vegetation or

between rocks but some

of you living near the

shoreline may have been

lucky enough to spot a nest

BIRDS OF THE ESTUARY

Tanya Jenkins is the manager of the Avon-Heathcote

Estuary Ihutai Trust, a non-profit organisation formed in

2002 to protect one of New Zealand’s most important

coastal wetlands. Each week she introduces a new bird found

in the estuary. Her column aims to raise the understanding of

the values and uniqueness of the area.

Control pets to

protect little blues

garage or even in your

woodpile.

Nesting begins in July

and one to two eggs are

tended to by both parents

who will turns-about keep

eggs and chicks safe and

warm for a day while the

other will go out fishing.

Eggs are laid between

July and mid-November

and occasionally a pair will

produce a second clutch

in one season. Would it

not be a shame if we lose

our last few remaining

breeding pairs around the

estuary?

Not that long ago they

were commonly found

but increased housing

and roading development

have resulted in the loss

of habitat for the little

Big turnouts at New Brighton’s Christmas galas

The New Brighton Museum has a rich history spanning for than 100 years.

Peggy Butterfield writes monthly about the historical display at the heritage

museum

WHEN NEW Brighton was a

buzzing place, people would

come from all over town for the

Christmas galas.

A number of competitions

would be held – Miss, Mrs and

Mr New Brighton, mother/daughter,

father/son, and these would

see contestants flexing muscles,

and showing off shapely brown

legs and posing for the judges and

cameras.

Little girls would dance

cutely, while mums and grandmas

cheered them on.

The best of the bands would

entertain us in the sound shell,

and it was a must for the locals to

meet up.

The galas would run for several

days and there was always a huge

turnout.

Jaycees were a big part of

the organising committees.

NZ Massage Therapy Diplomas

by Distance Learning

The New Zealand College of Chinese

Medicine now offers both the NZ

Diploma in Wellness and Relaxation

Massage Level 5 and the NZ Diploma

in Remedial Massage Level 6 online,

becoming the first private training

provider in New Zealand to offer these

qualifications nationally by Blended

Learning (Distance Learning and Block

courses). This exciting development

provides learners with choice and

flexibility about how and when they

study and enables much greater access

to these NZQA approved massage

qualifications.

Both Diplomas are one-year full time

courses. Students may study part

time if they wish. The course design of

both qualifications comprises distance

online learning modules in theory and

on campus practical block modules

offered either at the College’s Auckland

campus or regionally where numbers

of enrolments justify this. These block

courses ensure students meet the

supervised practical requirements to

register as a massage therapist with

Massage New Zealand.

The programmes are taught by very

experienced teaching staff and produce

graduates who are equipped with the

knowledge and skills required for

effective professional clinical practice in

either wellness and relaxation massage

therapies or in remedial massage

therapies. Graduates obtain the latest

internationally recognised New Zealand

registered qualification in their field

and open the door to a wide range of

employment opportunities.

Students who complete the level 6

programme may pathway to bachelor’s

degrees in Massage Therapy.

The New Zealand College of Chinese

Medicine is proud of its past links with

Christchurch and is pleased to now

be able to offer Christchurch students

the chance to study massage therapy

online at home and in their own way

and time.

CALLS HAVE been made to

stop rates increases in response

to the Covid-19 crisis.

City councillors James Gough,

Sam MacDonald, Catherine

Chu, Phil Mauger, Aaron Keown

and James Daniels have sent a

letter to Mayor Lianne Dalziel

asking her to lead a conversation

as to how a zero per cent rates

increase could be achieved this

year.

The city council is proposing

an average rates increase of 4.65

per cent across all ratepayers in

this year’s Draft Annual Plan

which is currently under public

consultation until April 5 and

will be finalised before July 1.

The 2018-2028 Long Term

Plan also predicts a 50 per cent

rates increase over 10 years.
