Farmers dig in over access

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Agroup of Hurunui farmersisreeling

afterbeing told Environment Canterbury

inspectorswill access their properties

wearing body cameras and with apolice

escort for nassella tussock inspections.

Abouthalf adozen farmershave locked

ECan out of their properties for several

yearsbecause they allegeongoing

instances of staff reporting on other

information unrelated to the primary

purposeoftheirvisit.

Rural Advocacy Network chairman

Jamie McFadden says arecent meeting

called between ECanand the farmers

following notification of the regional

council’s intention to enter properties has

failed to heal the rift.

He saysthe tone of the meeting now

means the half­dozen farmers who

originallydenied access are being joined

by others, fearingtheir private property

rights are under threat. The meeting,

attendedbynew ECan chiefexecutive

StefanieRixecker, did little to allay

farmer concerns, Mr McFaddensays.

Widerissues are alleged to include

usingprivateproperty informationfor

otherpurposes without the agreementof

landowners,undertaking mapping of

areassuch as wetlands without

consultation or properprocess, alack of

genuine collaboration, and manipulating

processes to suit ECan’s agenda, such as

its management of braided rivers.

Waiau farmerand network vicechairman

Grant Barbara, in an email to

membersafter the meeting, saysshutting

gates to ECanisnot about avoiding a

nassella inspection. It was aboutECan

needingtoaddressthe widerissues.

Council denies liability over house

By DAVID HILL

The WaimakaririDistrict

Council says it is not liablefor

a‘‘leaky home’’ in Sefton.

was specified in the code of

compliance certificateissued

in 2008 and the bestplace to

resolve the matter wouldhave

been in thecourts.

the council on code

compliance, advising the

current owners at the time they

subsequently,shouldhave

executiveJim Palmer says.

The council received a

deputation from the current

owners of the Seftonproperty

during its October meeting

seeking areviewofa2018

decisionregarding compensation

for issueswith the mid-

1990s earth-block home.

The deputation and a

subsequent meeting late last

month betweenthe property

ownersand the council

provided an opportunity for

the owners to sharenew

information with the council,

Mr Palmer says.

‘‘Followingthe deputation,

the council requested an

updated report on the property

mattertoconsider during its

November meeting.

‘‘The council has reviewed

the matter and reconfirmed its

previous decision that the

mattershould have been

addressedthroughthe courts.

‘‘The council had reasonable

‘‘As stated at the meeting,

the issues thatneed

Mr Barbara said.

‘‘The closed-gate policy

now closed. Thisisavery

effective toolatraisingour

concerns, otherwiseECan

wouldn’t havecalled the

meeting.

‘‘Theyobviously want to

shut thisdown before it

becomes more widespread

in the region. Perhaps this

needs to be adopted as a

nationwide approach?’’

He alsoexpressed

concern about alack of

knowledge and

understandingoffarming

hill and highcountry

properties by ministers of

the Crown, and some

elected regional

councillors.

‘‘While they throw all

farming practices underthe

same set of policies we are

on avery slippery slope.’’

Another Hurunui farmer

said the toneofthe meeting

was set in the first 30

seconds, with the ‘‘typical

ECan arrogance’’ becoming

apparent.

In an emailtoMs

Rixecker afterthe meeting,

win the trust of farmers, but

the opening address by a

staff member had basically

negated the purpose of the

meeting.

‘‘I was veryimpressedand

very proudofthe farmers

that spoke. Everyone spoke

eloquentlyand passionately

and no-oneshouted.

‘‘At the end of the

meeting, and we had gone

full circle, Icame to the

conclusionthat there was a

hiddenagenda, and by hook

or by crook ECanwas

wanting to enforce access to

these farms thathave shut

their gates.

‘‘It seems strange that the

issue is brought up this year,

when there is anew council

and newchief executive.

‘‘Surely,waiting another

12 monthswould have

enabled achance for

positive engagementswith

the affected farmersto

resolve the issues.

‘‘I am very disappointed,

Stefanie, because Ireally

thought that finally ECan

was going to change its

attitudetowards the North

work withthem in apositive

and pragmatic fashion.

long way to go, given the

attitudeofsome staff within

big catch

From Page 1

Danny says he is often up at his

favouritelake.

Anglers didn’t need to catch a

fish to enter the competition.

They only had to present their

licence to go in the prize draw.

There were thousands of dollars

of prizes provided by

Christchurch Hunting and

Fishing.

As well as recording weight and

length, Fish &Game staff

removedscales,otoliths and

stomach samplesfrom selected

fish for age and diet analysis.

The otolith is an ear bone

which records the age and carries

achemical signature of where the

fish is from. They can be analysed

by Fish &Game to assist in

managementofthe fishery.

NorthCanterburyFish &Game

chief executive Rasmus

Gabrielsson said the fish were in

excellentcondition across the

different speciesand there were

good numbers.

‘‘It bodes well for the domestic

tourism season.

‘‘The high country is part of the

uniqueness of the Canterbury

fishery.

‘‘Nowhere else in the world do

anglers get to fish in such

beautifulscenerysoclose to a

says.

‘‘These lakesare easy to get to

Mayor welcomes new maintenance bylaw

By DAVID HILL

Dan Gordon has welcomedthe passingof

abylawhechampioned lastyear.

The Waimakariri mayorwas pleased to

see his colleagues approve the Property

and Maintenance Bylaw, which he

proposed in January 2019, at lastweek’s

council meeting.

‘‘It gives the council some additional

tools in the toolbox to deal with issues of

long grassinour district,’’ he says.

The bylaw gives the opportunity to

respondifunkept sections become a

problem, he says.

‘‘We have heard reports of issues where

sections are not being maintained as they

should,sothis provides the opportunity

for our stafftowork with those

landowners to get this resolved.

‘‘When Iwas working on this in the

early days,Ihad alot of feedback from

residents in Rangiora, Kaiapoi and

Pegasusinparticular.’’

Councilspreviouslyhad the power

under the Local Government Act (2002) to

respondtoovergrown sections, especially

if they posedafire risk. This authority

passed to Fire and Emergency New

Zealand undernew regulations in 2018.

By DAVID HILL

The Waimakariri District Council is

asking the Pegasus and Woodend

communities to report illegalorantisocial

activity in Gladstone Parktothe

police.

The appealfollowsmany complaints

from residents and visitors who have

seen people riding quadbikes and

motorcyclesingrassed areas of the park,

southofHakatere Road.

The council saysthe actions of afew

people are causingboth anoise nuisance

and safetyconcernsfor park users.

Greenspace manager Grant MacLeod

reminds people thatriding motorbikes

or other motorvehiclesinparksis

dangerousand not allowed.

“We don’t want to spoil anyone’s fun,

but parksare used by children,families

and sportsgroups, and they aren’t an

appropriate place for vehicles.”

“Residentsvalue our open spacesand

should be able to use themsafely,

without putting up with excessivenoise

or anti­social behaviour.”

GladstonePark has several sports

fields, adog park, tennis courts and

children’s playground.

Recreationaluse of motorbikes, quad

bikesorany motorisedvehicle is not

allowed in any part of the park.

The council encourages membersof

the communitytospreadthe word and

contact police if they spotissues.

Millions for district upgrades

Covid­19 recovery and the park­and­ride

projects were discussed at last week’s

Waimakariri District Councilmeeting.

Councillors signed off on $10.35 million

in spending on three waters projects over

the next two years,which are subject to the

government’s $8.02mstimulusfunding

allocated to the district.

The projects will now be included in

next year’s2021/31Long Term Plan. They

include upgrades to the PoyntzsRdwater

source, the Fernside sewer, the Loburn

Lea sewer, West Eyreton and Summerhill

storage,centralRangiora capacity andthe

Ohokawaterstorage, as wellasOxford

seweroperational improvements, and

waterand sewer extensions at Tuahiwi.

Funding for the $18.13m Kaiapoi

stormwater and flooding improvements

project was also signedoff, with $9m

coming fromthe government’s ‘‘shovel

ready’’ projects fund. The bulkofthe

remaining $9.13m willcome from the

Kaiapoi urban drainage fund, whichwill

increase the drainage rate for Kaiapoi

ratepayers from $305 to $452per property

for the 2023/24 financialyear.

Councillors voted to bringforward part

of the $4m park­and­ridefund set aside in

the 2018/28Long Term Plan to allow the

new projects in Kaiapoiand Rangiora to

be completed for nextyear’sopening of the

integrated family health service fromthe

health hub site.

It was encouraging to hear from

Andrew that the boardwill soon

announce the signing of the leasefor the

newfacility, with its opening on trackfor

next year. Iwill continue to monitor

progress on this important new facility.

It was an honour to lay awreath with

our community and speak as local MP at

therecent commemoration of the Battle

of Passchendaeleatthe Kaiapoi

Cenotaph. Our losses on what is knownas

NewZealand’s blackest day represented

atragedy for our country and we continue

to be humbledbythe spirit of those who

answered the callofduty.Wewill

remember.

was avaluable opportunity.

We haveoffered to review the nassella

tussock programme with the communityin

the new year.

Our aim is to reach aco­designed

solution thatboth acknowledges

community concerns and reflects our

statutory obligations. We alsoacknowledge

that there are historic issuesalongside

new challenges, whichwarrant us having

more regular discussions. On that basis, we

have committedtoquarterly discussions

with the community.

While we arecertainly not yet there in

terms of aresolution, with agreatdeal of

koreroand mahiaheadofus, thiswas an

importantstep on the journey. Nassella

tussock is aparticularchallenge in North

Canterbury and it is important thatour

staff are delivering to the overall need of

the community.

Developing better ways of working

together will be important with more

significantissues in the future, such as the

Essential Freshwater reforms and Te

Mana oteWai.

Reduction in plastic use supported

By DAVID HILL

The Waimakariri District

Council is backing central

government efforts to reduce

plastic use.

Councillorsendorsed a

submission to the Ministryfor

the Environmentonreducing

the impact of plastic on the

environmentduringlast

week’s council meeting.

The submission, prepared

by council staff,supportsthe

overall directiontoreduce

plastic waste, to phase out

single­use plastics, and to

address thelabelling of plastic

products as biodegradable or

compostable.

‘‘Manyofthe claimsfor

degradability amounttolittle

more than greenwash,’’ the

submission says.

‘‘We welcome the proposal

to phase out these itemsuntil

such time as genuinedegradable

and household compostable

items are available.’’

The councilalso calls on the

governmenttoplacethe

responsibility for product

stewardship back on

manufacturers.

‘‘This helps increase

producer responsibility

throughproductstewardship,

andcreate economic

incentives for the use of

recyclable plastics.

‘‘We anticipate that this will

also reduce public confusion

andmake it easierfor

Waimakariri communities to

make goodrecycling choices.’’

Mayor Dan Gordon

described it as an important

submissionand welcomed its

thrust to introduce more

productstewardship.

Cr Kirstyn Barnett said it

willwork only with anational

directiveand by workingwith

manufacturers.

‘‘Wedohave aresponsibility

as consumers not to buy it

unless it’s 1, 2and 5, if you can

avoid it.’’

Cr NikiMealings welcomed

central governmenttakingthe

lead, but noted past governments

had imposed rules

without providingthe toolsto

makethem effective.

defibrillator (AED), has

been mounted on awall at

the Hurunui Hotel complex.

The lifesavingpiece of

medical equipment,funded

through the New Zealand

Red Cross Disaster Relief

Fund, was unveiled

recently.

The initiative was spearheadedbylocal

resident

Stephen Woodbury, who

saw aneed in the district for

an AED to be available in

the eventofacardiac arrest.

He approached the Red

Cross and worked withthe

community to ensure it

becameareality.

“It’s not been an easy job,

but it’s been made so much

easierbyall the people

involved,” Stephen says.

Mr Woodbury, along with

MarcusBird, who is the

national product manager

for the Red Cross, and local

community members

attended the ceremony.

Mr Woodbury said the

unveiling was agreat way to

educate the community on

AEDs and how to use one in

an emergency.

Mr Bird says it is amazing

to see the commitment

peopleinthe Hurunui have

to ensure resilience and

safety in their community.

The installation of the

AED was made possible by

the efforts of Mr Woodbury,

the Red Cross, the

Hawarden Waikari Lions

Club, Adam Martin and

BettinaHoellery at the

HurunuiHotel, Ian

Conner’s electrical work,

MatthewNewton’sjoinery

skills in building the

transformer box, Rob Field

for his consultancy, and

PapanuiElectrical

Supplies.

The former emergency

management officer at

HurunuiDistrict Council,

Dean Eades, worked with

the Red Crosstoestablish

six other AED locations

around the Hurunui—at

the Boyle River, Lyford

Lodge, Conway Hall, the

Greta Valley sports complex,

the Waipara township

and Amberley Beach.

The Red Cross Fundhas

enabled14Community

The sensible path to

sustainable dairying

There is no doubt that New Zealand has

the perfect climate to produce milk

profitably from pasture.

However, the challenge facing farmers

today is to maintain good milk

production and at the same time reduce

their carbon footprint.

Alltech® E­CO2 assesses the

greenhouse gas footprint of the farm

using international standards and

provides the producer with management

and nutritional advice aimed at

addressing overall production efficiency

and improving the carbon footprint.

The programme has further

opportunities to link with the in vitro

Fermentation Model (IFM) laboratory in

New Zealand.

This next level of service evaluates the

performance of the feed, as well as

making afarm­specific laboratory

assessment of greenhouse gas emissions.

An identical programme in Ireland

has produced arelevant case study.

Eleven dairy farms in Ireland showed

an average reduction of 8percent in

their carbon footprint (measured in CO 2

­

equivalents) after one year, with 50kg

less feed per cow being consumed and

56kg more milk solids per cow being

produced.

Areduction in the carbon footprint of

this size is equivalent to taking 383 cars

off the road, or 107 fewer people taking

round­the­world flights, without losing

cow performance —another no brainer!

For more than 40 years, Alltech has

been developing its business around

science­based technology and

developing tools to assist dairy farmers

in New Zealand to be efficient and

profitable, while maintaining

production and taking care of the

environment.

Alltech’s commitment was recently

highlighted in the formal commitment to

the United Nations Sustainable

Development Goals (SDGs).

In July last year, Alltech committed to

nine of the 17 SDGs that aligned most

closely with the company’s core

business.

In summary, improvements in feed

quality and animal well­being have a

direct effect on overall production

efficiency. Ahealthier animal better

absorbs nutrients and the feed

conversion efficiency is improved.

Better performance means less

greenhouse gas per litre of milk

produced.

If you are interested in knowing your

farm’s current carbon footprint and how

you can improve greenhouse gas

emissions without losing milk

production and revenue, be proactive

instead of reactive, and contact your

local area sales manager, Matt Cassineri

on (027) 208 4606 or email

Good care crucial to long careers

Awarm bed, plenty of rest

and ahearty meal can all

contribute to the health of

working dogs.

Astudy on working dogs

has revealed they are

vulnerable to developing

musculoskeletal injuries or

illness.

Massey University

partnered with Vetlife to

conduct research involving

126 owners and 641 working

farm dogs in Otago and

Canterbury.

Veterinarian Dr Lori

Linney, of Alexandra, who

led the study, said an average

working­dog career lasted

until the age of seven, but

some would retire early

because of injury.

The study collected data

over four years on feeding,

housing, general health

practices, training and

condition, disease and injury,

as well as career duration.

No other study to date had

included this information

and it was hoped the findings

would contribute to

improving the health and

wellbeing of working dogs.

The breed or gender did

not make amajor difference

to the number of injuries.

Common issues included a

reduced range of motion and

swelling of the carpus or

stifle bones of the leg, while

the hip was the most common

site of pain.

Some ways to help improve

the health of working dogs

were preventing them

jumping from heights where

possible, keeping them warm

in winter, allowing time for

warm­up and cool­down of

muscles, giving them periods

of rest, and good nutrition.

‘‘Even if they do show signs

of musculoskeletal injury or

disease, there are many

things your veterinarian can

do to make them more

comfortable and keep

working,’’ Dr Linney says.

‘‘We also recommend that

owners take care when

IT’S ABOUT TIME SOMEONE

STARTED THINKING LIKE AFARMER.

You have enough to do without worrying about the perfect drench programme. To help, we

went back to basics to create the Turbo ® 3-stage parasite control programme for growing cattle.

buying working dogs that they

consider conformation and

existing conditions that may

limit their working future.

‘‘A dog should be carefully

examined before purchase.’’

Working dogs are an

essential part of asheep and

beef farming operation, she

says. ‘‘We recommend

working­dog owners take

steps to prevent the onset and

severity of these injuries to

help prolong their working

dog’s career.’’

Facial eczema

on the move

Achangingclimatemeansstock in some

non­traditional facial eczema (FE)areas

will be at greaterrisk fromthe diseasein

the near future,Beef +Lamb’s general

manager of farmingexcellence, Dan

Brier, says.

“We have already seen it spread into

the top of the South Island,soitwouldbe

prudent for sheepfarmerstothinkabout

usinggenetics now to future­proof their

flocks.’’

He says even if commercial farmers

started this year with ateam of highly

FE­tolerant rams,itwould take six years

of breeding before any significantdegree

of tolerance was bredinto the flock.

The New Zealand sheepindustry has

been proactive about identifying and

selecting for FE tolerant genetics, so

commercial ram buyers arewell­placed

to benefitfrom generationsofbreeding

by stud breeders in high­risk areas.

FE tolerance is included in the

recently launched nProve genetic

selection tool.

Dan says it is as simpleasmoving the

slider for FE under the health traits

section.This willgenerate alist of

breedersbenchmarked for FE tolerance

and the search can then be refined to

breed, typeand/or location.

Otherprogrammes that indicate merit

when it comes to breeding towards FE

toleranceinclude Genetic TrendGraphs,

Ramguard Flock Status, FE Gold and

TraitLeaderlists (found on Sheep

Improvement Ltd).

“Mostimportantly, commercial

farmers looking to include FE tolerance

in their selection criteria should talk to

theirram breeder and ask themabout

whether they havebeen selectingfor FE

toleranceand for how long,” Dan says.

Some residents fall short

over recycling efforts

By DAVID HILL

Oxford has been enjoying mixed results

when it comes to recycling.

Waimakariri district councillor

Wendy Doody says asuccessful

AgRecovery day was held at the Oxford

Transfer Station last week, but there

have been some disappointing results

from bin audits among urban residents.

‘‘When it comes to rubbish, some

Oxford residents really do need to tidy

up their act.

‘‘Your recycling bin is not arubbish

bin; it’s for recycling,’’ she says.

‘‘They do have to work on it and they

have to work on it fast, because they

could have their bins taken off them.’’

The problem is not unique to Oxford

residents, as several residents across the

Waimakariri district have fallen into

bad habits when it comes to what goes in

the recycling bin since the lockdown.

‘‘What it all comes down to is the

consumer needs to be alot more

careful about what they buy,’’ Cr Doody

says.

‘‘We have been athrowaway society

for such along time and it’s time to

change.’’

She was pleased with the response to

last week’s AgRecovery day, where 19

customers from local farms visited the

Oxford Transfer Station.

In all, 700kg of plastic containers were

crushed, which was enough to fill a

20­foot container.

Christmas fun planned

Christmas is coming to Oxford.

Planning is under way for the town’s

annual festive season events to ensure

there is plenty of fun for all ages.

Santa Claus will pop in for the annual

Oxford and Districts Lions Christmas

Parade on Sunday, December 20.

Once again the parade will leave

from Burnett Street at 12.30pm, with

Santa taking up his usual position at

the back.

The parade finishes at the Oxford

Showgrounds, where there will be a

bouncy castle and ice creams for the

children, and the Lions food caravan

will be operating.

Once again, there will be prizes for

the best floats, best­decorated bike and

boys’ and girls’ fancy dress.

The Oxford Santa Parade is

organised by the Oxford Lions, on

behalf of the Oxford Promotions Action

Committee and is made possible thanks

to funding from the Waimakariri

District Council.

The popular Christmas Eve Carols in

the Park will be back on the night

before Christmas, with Santa expected

to make afleeting appearance.

The event is being held in the

Pearson Park village green from 7pm to

9pm, finishing just in time to get the

children home to bed before Santa

makes his deliveries.

Toot for Tucker returns to Oxford on

Tuesday, December 1, to restock the

food pantry at the Oxford Community

Trust before the Christmas rush begins.

‘‘They could lookatgetting a

Kiwi Card, which is just like an

18+ Card, or they can get a

photo on their Gold Card.

‘‘It’s worthlookingtothe

future with some of these

things and making sure they

have ID.’’

Hanmer to

feel the beat

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The largest interactive drum show in

Australasia willbestaged in Hanmer

Springs this month.

Rhythm Interactive willhold a

performance at the Hanmer Springs

School on Saturday, November21, at

1pm.

DirectorJohn Boon says it is afamilyfriendly

performance. The audience will

have lots of fun, with drums provided.

Rhythm Interactive was formed in 2003

and initially was targetedtowards

corporateevents.But in 2008John

decided to introduce the interactive

drum show to schools.

Threeshows are offered—ajunior,

middle school and asenior show —

incorporating arange of themes.

The shows also embrace many of the

school competencies such as

participating and contributing, relating

to others and managing self. Most other

touring schoolperformances offer

students ashow where they watch

performers on stage.

However, with a Rhythm Interactive

performance,the audience becomes the

stage. All the studentsare involved,

together as one right from the start.

‘‘Every one of us has rhythm,

irrespective of our musicalbackground.

Our physical bodiesare riddled with

natural rhythmscalled biorhythms and

the most obviousbody rhythmisour

heartrhythm.’’

Rhythm connects people, John says.

Not asingle word is spoken throughout

the 60­minute performance.

Tickets, available at the schoolonthe

day frommidday, are $15 for adults and

$10 for children (aged5to13).

Anew eye to the sky for Oxford

By DAVID HILL

Oxford’s viewofthe heavens is

set to get largernext year.

The OxfordArea School

Observatory’s new Meade

12­inch telescopehas finally

arrived and is in the process of

beinginstalled,volunteerChris

Hawessays.

‘‘We are getting there in small

steps. The first hurdlewas the

new telescope is designed to be

used on legs so we had to source

an adapter platefrom Meade

whichtook six weekstoarrive.

‘‘Then the bolts for the new

mounting platewere not

included and we had to source

these.’’

The telescopeisnow mounted

and volunteershope to give it a

few testruns overthe summer.

But with the days getting

longer, the public will have to

wait until daylight savingends

in April next yearbefore it is

open for public viewing.

The observatory’s old10­inch

telescope is to be mounted

outside, which means larger

groups will be able to be hosted

at open nights and events.

Open nightshave proventobe

so popularthat the observatory

had to restrictnumbers to 15 at

atimeover winter.

Unlike theold telescope, the

new one is computerised,

making it easiertotrain

telescope operators,so

volunteers hope to be able to

open on every clear night over

winter.

‘‘With the old telescope,we

had only one personwho could

operate it, so that meant we

were pretty restricted in what

we could do,’’volunteer Erik

Vermaat says.

Mr Vermaat has been teaching

his new ‘‘GoingDeep’’course

this term, which explores

cosmologyand the depths of the

‘‘known universe’’.

It means he will be able to run

asequence of four courses

duringterm time nextyear:

‘‘Exploringthe Solar System’’,

‘‘Leaving the Solar System’’,

which looks out to 500 light years

fromEarth, ‘‘Exploring the

Milky Way’’ and ‘‘Going Deep’’.

‘‘Exploringthe Solar System’’

will be offeredinterm one and,

by then, the fate of three

missionstoMars, including

Nasa’s PerseveranceRover, will

be known.

‘‘Mars will definitely be in

focus and there is so much

happeninginSolar System

research, withthe discovery of

new comets and asteroids,so

therewill be alot to discuss,’’ Mr

Vermaatsays.

Therewill also be apractical

astronomy course, ‘‘The

RhythmicSky’’, on offer next

year,which makesuse of the

telescope to help learners

understand‘‘how celestial

objects move in our sky’’.

3to8students, an item that was at the

top of the student’s wishlist.

The sandpit was donated by Townsend

Fields and includes hydraulic lids to the

storage boxes, raised sides, asandpit

cover and 22 cubic metres of golden

sand.

Justin worked with the school to

design the sandpit, which is built with

natural timbers, in keeping with other

playground equipment.

As the truck delivering the sand was

too heavy to drive on the school grounds,

the sand was delivered to the carpark

and the Te Matauru parent community

helped wheelbarrow it to the pit and

shovel it in.

The sandpit has been ahit with all

students and is continually used

throughout the day to enhance learning

experiences, as well as during break

times.

The Te Matauru Primary Unite team

(the PTA) is raising funds through

sausage sizzles and adisco to buy

sandpit equipment. Agrant from Pub

Charity has been sourced by the school

to buy asun shade cover in preparation

for summer.

Peter shares some woolly tales

By DAVID HILL

North Canterbury shearer

Peter Casserlyhas hung up his

blade afteradding his name to

another world record.

The 72­year­old master blade

shearer came out of retirement

earlier this year to compete in

the 60th Golden Shears in

Masterton,before being

invited to shearaspecialsheep

at the Poverty Bay A&PShow

last month.

‘‘I don’t think you everretire;

it’s like ridingabike.

Somebody’s always got apet to

shear or acouple of sheepon

their lifestyle block to be shorn.

You just fade away in the

finish,’’ Peter says.

‘‘At the end of the day the

anxiety and the tension of it all

is getting too much.

‘‘And Ihad to knockoff the

booze for aweek before going

up to Gisborneand do some

training.’’

Peter learned to bladeshear

working with the Karaitiana

brothers fromTuahiwi,who

‘‘werefamous in shearing in

the area’’.

‘‘I usedtodoalot of shearing

in North Canterbury in my day

and was shearing all round

Canterbury and Otago.’’

Competing in blade

shearing, he won the golden

bladesatthe CanterburyA&P

Show in 1975 and 1976, and was

world blade shearing

champion in 1980 at Masterton.

In 1976,hebroke the world

blade shearing record,

shearing 353 sheepinaninehour

day at Rangiatea Station,

near Mt Somers.

Two years earlier,Peter

entered the Guinness World

Records afteropening 100

oysters in three minutesand

three seconds in Christchurch.

MovingtoOmarama, he

becamethe localpublican for

13 yearsfrom 1992, and ran the

Omarama Shears for several

years, where he wonthe New

Zealand Merino shearingtitle.

Over the years, Peter has

been invited to shearcelebrity

sheep, including Shrek, Big

Ben and Suzy.

Coming out of retirement,

Peterplaced third in the open

bladeshearing competition at

this year’s GoldenShears.

‘‘Gizzy Shrek’’ escapedfrom

Wairakaia Station, near

Gisborne, about five years ago

and was foundroaming in a

neighbouringforestryblock.

‘‘They had seen it on several

occasions, but it was too wily,’’

Petersays. ‘‘It had along tail

and no ear tag, but it was quite

calm when Igot to it.’’

While ‘‘Gizzy Shrek’s’’ fleece

is notasheavyassome of the

famous sheepPeterhas shorn

over the years,the fleece

length off the shoulderwas

measured at 58cm—3cm

longer than the previous world

record set in Masterton in 2018.

It took15minutes to give

‘‘GizzyShrek’’ the haircut, with

the fleece weighing in at

14.5kg,much lighterthan

Shrek’s27kg trim in 2004and

Big Ben’s 28.9kg haircutin

2014.

Peter has retired to afourhectarelifestyle

block on the

bank of Cam RiveratTuahiwi,

where he can fish for whitebait

and trout.

‘‘I’m livingthe dream,’’ he

says.

Are lifestyle blocks athing of the past?

Will Council's Plan Review stop

4.0ha lots?

There isanew District Plan coming, and we expect

major changes to the minimum lot size for rural

subdivisions, in some or most parts of the District.

It was intended for release mid 2020 however this

was delayed due to the national Covid-19 lockdown

and is now projected to take place March 2021.

So, if you own 8.0 or more hectares (20 acres) of

rural land in Waimakariri District and you’ve been

considering subdividing, now is the time to have a

chat to your local surveyors, Survus Consultants

about your options.

What is the Waimakariri District

Plan?

The District Plan is the Council’s planning rulebook

and governs how people can build on or develop

land in North Canterbury.

As well as making sure that future development is

sustainable and protects our natural resources for

generations to come, the Plan ensures that new

development meets regulatory requirements like

our National Planning Standards and the Resource

Management Act. It also supports growth in the

region - the Waimakariri District is booming and

needs arobust set of rules to make sure it can

continue to grow well into the future.

The District Plan is reviewed every 10 years to

make sure it’s up to date with the needs of the

community, and current regulations. Itwill be back

under review early next year, with the updated plan

scheduled for release in early/mid-2021.

We’ve had a thorough read of the Waimakariri

2048 District Development Strategy -which is the

Council document that underpins the District Plan -

and we expect the new plan to include changes to

the rules and requirements around subdivisions.

What arethe current rules for

rural subdivisions?

The current Waimakariri District Plan allows for

rural subdivision and building, with a lot and

dwelling density of 4.0ha being required (and

certain other criteria).

What arethe proposed

changes?

Until the updated Plan is released, we won’t know

the full details -but there are strong indications

that the minimum lot size for subdivisions will

increase.

Simply put: it’s likely that if you want to

subdivide, 8.0 hectares (2x4halots) will no

longer be enough -you’ll need alarger piece of

land.

The Waimakariri 2048 District Development

Strategy says; “Whilelifestyle lots are afeature of

the District and many enjoy the open spaces, the

most frequent comment made during early

community consultation was adesire to restrict

Dan and Craig fromSurvus Consultants on site discussing aproject.

further subdivision of rural land into lifestyle lots [...]

Based on the feedback received the Council will

explore increasing the minimum rural lot sizes in

parts of the District.”

Council also noted that over the last decade, 73% of

all new rural houses were on lots between 4-4.99

hectares in size and that if this trend continues

more than 3600 new lifestyle lots would be

created by 2048.

What does this mean for you?

If you own 8.0ha or more of rural zoned land, &

have been considering subdividing, don’t waste

time. March 2021 is not far away, and the Council

require a fair amount of information to go to

Council in support of asubdivision application.

If you secure your subdivision consent now, it’ll be

valid for five years -sowhile you don’t have to

subdivide straight away you can lock in your

consent before the rules change, and preserve your

slice of rural paradise!

Give our friendly team acall oranemail and we

can talk you through the application and consent

process. 0508 SURVUS or hello@survus.co.nz

Resurgent Cheviot

thumps Weedons

Competitionleaders Weedons suffered its

first loss of the country cricketseason on

Saturday after an unsuccessful roadtrip to

Cheviot.

The 105­runloss to aresurgent Cheviot

Magpies cameafter the home sideposted

acommanding214/9 in its allotted45overs

in the latest round of the CRV Ambreed

Country Premier One Day2020/21

competition.

Solid contributions by the top five

batsmen, led by ahalf­century from Archie

Redfern, and ablistering 42 runs off23

balls from Will Smith, helpedset up the

dominant win at Cheviot Domain.

Sam Clarke,who grabbed fourwickets,

was the pick of the bowlersfor Weedons,

which was disappointed to gift 31 extras.

The Weedons chasespluttered,losing its

first wicketinthe third over,and never got

going, crumbling to be all out for109.

It was an unfitting farewellfor Weedons

player/coachSam Wilson, whose tireless

work for the club will be sorely missed.

Big win for Ohoka

At Mandeville, abig shout for leg before

wicketwent the way of bowler Rhys Mariu.

It resulted in the dismissalof

Canterbury player HenryShipley for 47

and helped swing abig victory for Ohoka

over Darfield on Saturday.

Shipley’sinnings was the shining light in

Darfield’s disappointing first innings of

134 all out.

Ohoka opener RyanKelly steered the

home XI to asix­wicketwin witha

composed 56 runs off 112 balls before

formerCheviot player HarryFitzpatrick

finished off the job with an unbeaten24.

Oxford­Rangiora on top

Oxford­Rangiora won arain­affected

match over Lincolnbysevenruns via the

Duckworth­Lewismethod after batting

CRICKET

first and making 177/8in45overs.

What’s happening in your

community…

Vehicles in Parks Endangering Community

Council are asking the Pegasus and Woodend

communities to report illegal or anti-social

activities inGladstone Park to the Police.

The appeal follows numerous complaints from

residents and visitors who have seen people riding

quadbikes and motorbikes in grassed areas of the

park, south of Hakatere Road. The actions ofa

few people are causing both noise nuisance and

safety concerns for park users at various times of

the day and night.

Council’s Greenspace Manager Grant MacLeod

reminds people that riding motorbikes or other

motorised vehicles in parks is dangerous and

not allowed.

“We don’t want to spoil anyone’s fun, but parks are

used by children, families and sports groups -they

aren’t an appropriate place for vehicles,”

says Grant.

Gladstone Park has anumber of sports fields used

by community sports clubs, adog park, tennis

courts and children’s playground.

“Residents value our open spaces and should be

able to use them safely, without having to put up

with excessive noise and anti-social behaviour,”

he said.

Recreational use of motorbikes, quadbikes, or any

motorised vehicle is not allowed inany part of

the park.

Community’s Unsung Heroes Celebrated

at Awards

Each year, the Waimakariri District Council

celebrates the people who have made great

contributions to the District.

Now intheir 29th year, the Community Service

Awards formally recognise the substantial

commitment of the unsung heroes who work

quietly in the background making our community a

better place to live.

Whether it’s for sport, youth, family, church,

education, community or earthquake response, we

want to make sure these volunteers are thanked on

behalf of our community. This year, anew Mayor’s

Award for exceptional community service has also

been introduced.

"There are alot of people doing tremendous

voluntary work in the Waimakariri District,” says

Mayor Dan Gordon. “Many fly under the radar

without recognition. However, we would like to

acknowledge these very humble people for their

considerable contributions. It is the least we can

do, on behalf of agrateful community, to say

thanks to people who go the extra mile to give

outstanding service."

Mayor’s Award recipients: David Ayers, Gary Boot

and Brian Hoult.

Community Service Award recipients: Marilyn

Ayers, Bob Balanos, Liz Duke, Clay Griffin, Judith

Hoult, Nick Ledgard, Tim Reynolds, Glenn Scott,

Armin Svoboda and John Ward.
