Overloaded healthcare providers

close doors to new patients

• By Susan Sandys

Deb Devon

SELWYN’S exploding population

and a nationwide shortage of

GPs is causing a perfect storm for

residents wanting to access primary

healthcare.

Rolleston’s two medical centres

have both closed their books to new

enrolments, forcing new patients to

travel to Lincoln or further afield.

Rolleston Central

Health practice

administrator Deb

Devon said the centre

made the difficult

decision to temporarily

close its books last

month, after having

the “incredibly high”

number of 400 new patients enrolling

in just three months.

“Prior to this, one of our full-time

doctors returned to their home

country due to Covid, and we have

been unable to replace her due to

a nationwide GP shortage,” Devon

said.

The centre, with eight GPs, had

the capacity to take many more new

patients but needed to recruit more

doctors. It was hoping to do this

soon.

The shortage of GPs in Rolleston

had been affected by the shortage of

GPs coming to New Zealand in the

Covid-19 pandemic, she said.

OUR FRONT page story

today highlights more

growing pain in the district –

getting enrolled at a doctor’s

surgery close to where you

live.

The booming population

combined with a GP

shortage means people are

having to enrol as far away as

Halswell and Wigram to see

a doctor.

The major issue is

currently in Rolleston.

But that is likely to

compound elsewhere as

Lincoln, West Melton and

Leeston grow.

On page 5 today we outline

the latest in the plans for

new subdivisions across the

district.

With growth comes new

businesses (see page 4 for a

new bar/restaurant opening)

and flowing from that is jobs.

So hopefully there will be

plenty of work for those who

live in the district.

SELWYN’S ECONOMY has

continued to grow in spite of the

impacts of the global pandemic.

The district remains one of

the best-performing economies

in the country, with the latest

figures from economic analysts

Infometrics showing 1.7 per cent

growth last year, compared to

a 2.6 per cent

drop nationally.

This growth

was reflected

in consumer

spending,

which grew solidly,

up 2.1 per

cent in the year

to December

2020. Nationally,

spending

fell by 3.2 per cent over the same

time.

Unemployment in Selwyn

remained at almost half the

national level, sitting at 2.6

per cent at the end of the year

compared to 4.6 per cent

nationally.

The Infometrics figures show

Selwyn’s construction boom and

the agriculture and food processing

industry were big factors

in the strength of the district’s

economy.

The number of houses sold in

Selwyn last year was up by 31.2

per cent, while the Infometrics

figures show 34 per cent more

residential building consent

applications were filed with the

district council.

In 2020 the district council issued

consents for 1530 individual

houses and has continued receiving

record numbers of building

consent applications in the early

months of 2021.

Almost a quarter (23.2 per

cent) of people employed in

Selwyn work in agriculture and

food processing, where returns

have been steady and are likely to

increase in the coming year with

a higher dairy payout.

Crash driver

greets

firefighters

• By Susan Sandys

A MAN INVOLVED in a car

crash at Dunsandel followed the

sound of the fire station siren

and was there to greet volunteers

when they arrived.

Travelling south on Main South

Rd towards Dunsandel township

about 5.30am on Sunday, the

man’s car veered across the road

near the Dunsandel Tavern.

The vehicle then hit the ditch

on the same side of the road as

the tavern, and overturned at

least once to land about 10m

away, on its roof, on the footpath.

A passer-by phoned emergency

services, setting off the

Dunsandel Fire Station’s alarm.

The driver was able to climb out

of the crushed vehicle. He made

his way to the fire station about

800m away, following the sound

of the station’s siren.

Chief Ken Lee said the driver

had been lucky to survive. And

in spite of minor injuries, he was

found to be in good spirits by

firefighters arriving at the fire

station.

A St John spokesperson said the

patient was taken to Christchurch

Hospital by ambulance with

minor injuries.

Rolleston health hub soon to open

• From page 1

Rolleston Medical Centre

practice manager Vicki Bool said

the centre, with 10 GPs, closed its

books to new patients about 18

months ago.

“You have only got so much

space and so many doctors,” Bool

said.

The centre was referring any

new patients to Lincoln.

WeCare Health, at Lincoln and

Wigram, confirmed it was still

accepting new patients, and welcomed

residents from Rolleston.

Lincoln Medical Centre confirmed

it also welcomed patients

from Rolleston. Darfield Medical

Centre, which also operates West

Melton Medical Centre, says on

its website that all new enrolments

are currently waitlisted

until further notice.

Rolleston residents are finding

it difficult to access primary

healthcare locally as doctors close

their books.

One woman, who moved to

Burnham from Auckland three

weeks ago, was referred to We-

Care Health at Lincoln, but found

there was no discount for using

a Community Services card for

to her.

“It’s a bit scary really, the

thought of not having somebody

A friend suggested Halswell,

so she would be now be taking

50km round trips to see her

doctor there. She was looking

forward to the opening of the

Selwyn Health Hub at Rolleston,

which will have a general practice

as part of its facilities.

“As soon as that place opens I

will be in there like a shot, I don’t

want to travel 25 kilometres,” she

said.

The district council is expecting

to have the health hub ready

for tenants to begin their fit-outs

in May. However, it is unknown

when the general practice will

open and how many doctors it

will have.

Group manager property

Douglas Marshall said the timing

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

of when tenants opened would

depend on when they had completed

their fit-outs and any other

requirements.

“The council has had interest

from a number of parties in becoming

the hub’s general practice

and those discussions are ongoing,”

Marshall said.

The number of GPs was “all

part of the discussion with the

potential tenants.”

“We are waiting to finalise

details so at this time cannot

confirm numbers,” Marshall said.

Two medical centres are on the

drawing board for Prebbleton,

set to be part of new building

projects. The centres are expected

to see about five GPs based in

the town, which currently has no

doctors there.

Board acting executive director

planning, funding and decision

board was aware there were

primary care access issues in

Canterbury, including sourcing

“Our primary care partners are

he said.

Over the past 10 years Selwyn

Legislation will help zoning plan requests

• By Susan Sandys

ZONING PLAN requests to

extend town boundaries and

allow for thousands of new

homes in the district are being

aided by nationwide legislation.

The National Policy Statement

on Urban Development came

into effect in August. Developers

are already taking advantage of

its objectives around increasing

housing supply, applying to the

district council for numerous

plan changes.

At a council

meeting last

week, councillors

accepted a request

for a plan change

encompassing

Tim Harris

up to 2000 new

homes at Lincoln,

from Rolleston

Industrial Developments Ltd, to

be publicly notified.

The site is about 190ha on

the south side of Lincoln, near

the progressively developing Te

Whariki and Verdeco residential

subdivisions. It would increase

Lincoln’s current residential area

by about 70 per cent.

Council group manager

environmental services Tim

Harris told councillors the site

was not identified within the

Canterbury Regional Policy

Statement as a priority greenfield

area, nor within a proposed

change to the CRPS as a future

development area.

“The site also sits outside of

the existing Lincoln township

boundary and, by extension,

outside of the infrastructure

boundary of the township,” Harris

said.

However, the NPS-UD had

provided a policy framework to

allow developments representing

“significant capacity” to be

accepted.

A number of plan change

applications coming before the

council were taking advantage of

this new pathway, he said.

“It allows for applications

that formerly would have been

knocked out, because they weren’t

consistent with high-order

planning documents, to be able

to be assessed and to go through

the normal RMA process,” Harris

said.

Councillors expressed a

range of concerns about the

proposed development,

including that the site had wet

soils and was a source of river

groundwater, and that it could

compromise the Little River Rail

Trail route.

Such issues are likely to be

raised as part of the public

consultation process. Private

plan change applications have

to go through a thorough and

sometimes lengthy legal process

and can take anything from

months to years.

Councillors approved a second

plan change for notification

at last week’s meeting, which

was from Yoursection Ltd, for

about 25ha on the south eastern

side of Rolleston, which would

encompass up to 280 new

households.

This plan change is also outside

of the greenfield development

Oak tree-size problem for Biggie

• By Susan Sandys

BIGGIE THE jack russell is a

little dog with a big appetite.

THis month he has survived

eating a stone and then an acorn,

with the help of expensive trips

to the vet.

His owner Belinda Jeursen

of Prebbleton is warning other

owners about the dangers of

acorns, ubiquitous in parks and

reserves this time of year as they

fall from oak trees.

Jeursen recently noticed her

10-month-old pup all of a sudden

becoming sick – vomiting,

shaking and drinking lots of

water.

This was following surgery

costing $2600 earlier in the

month after he had swallowed a

stone. He had completely recovered

from this, so the new illness

was a mystery.

She took him back to the

vet, who put him on a drip and

X-rayed him. The X-ray did not

show any obstructions, however,

when the vet undertook a rectal

examination, she felt the acorn

inside, Jeursen said.

Laxatives were deemed to be

the best course of treatment.

Soon Biggie was relieved of the

acorn.

“We didn’t even know he had

eaten it, it was only when it came

out the other end we knew what

WRITTEN BY MART CROWLEY. DIRECTED BY DOUG CLARKE

it was,” Jeursen said.

Jeursen said she would be

putting a muzzle on Biggie when

she took him for walks from now

on. She did not want him to eat

any more acorns, nor any other

strange objects.

The cost of the recent trip to

the vet and associated medications

had cost about $570. She

had since signed up for pet

insurance.

Dr Tracey Rozen at Prebbleton

Veterinary Hospital confirmed

the dangers of acorns. She said

some dogs found acorns interesting

and may be tempted to eat

them.

“Acorns can be dangerous

to our dogs, predominantly in

two ways,” Rozen said.

Firstly, they could cause physical

obstruction of the bowel,

resulting in severe clinical signs

associated with the blockage.

Surgery may be necessary to

remove the blockage.

Secondly, acorns released toxins

called tannins, which could

cause stomach upsets. This can

present as vomiting, abdominal

pain and diarrhoea.

“Kidney failure as a result of

acorn ingestion is rare in the dog

and is more commonly reported

in cattle, sheep and horses,”

Rozen said.

“We recommend that you do

not encourage your dogs to play

with acorns and that pets should

always be monitored when they

are out walking. If your dog

becomes unwell after eating or

playing with acorns please see

your veterinarian immediately.”

Dog owners

reminded to

pick up poo

• By Susan Sandys

SELWYN’S canine population is

increasing, alongside the amount

of dog poo in domains and

reserves.

The district council has emailed

dog owners, reminding them of

their responsibilities.

There are about 70 dogs being

added each month to the district

council’s database. The numbers

of registered dogs recently topped

15,000.

Larger numbers of dogs, particularly

in townships, can bring

challenges, the council said in the

email.

“One area of concern that

has been brought to our attention

lately is the number of dog

faeces being found at some of the

domains. So this is a perfect time

to remind everyone that when

you are out exercising your dogs

please pick up after them and

please don’t leave the plastic bags

lying around. If the rubbish bins

are full it’s your responsibility to

take it home,” the council said.

“In 2012 we worked extremely

hard to open up most of the

domains and reserves in Selwyn

to off-leash exercise areas. This

came with a rider that problem

areas may have that privilege

revoked.”

How to drive safe these school holidays

With the school holidays fast approaching and our international

borders still firmly closed, Kiwi’s are left with few options for a

solid holiday than heading off on a road trip. But before you pop

on your sunglasses and hit the highway, Rolleston Diesels and

Petrols say there are a few things you should do and check to

make sure you and the family are as safe as possible.

Check your tyres

If your tyres are old and worn out, there’s more chance you’ll

get a puncture. If that happens at high speed, you could lose

control and be involved in a serious accident. Bald tyres and

types of damage like cuts, cracks, bulges can be avoided with

regular checks, and replacements where necessary. Tyres are

also checked during a WoF inspection so don’t forget to check

them! Rolleston Diesel and Petrols are experts in mechanics and

can help you get your car in tip-top shape so that everyone gets

there and back again.

Make sure your lights work

Did you know your headlights are just as important during the

day as they are at night? So, making sure they work properly

should be a priority and it’s easy to check them yourself (they

should both be bright). But if you notice any dimming, or that

either one is just not working, get yourself to your mechanic—

pronto. Rolleston Diesels and Petrols will also check your

brake lights and all connections so you’ll be all set for the big

adventure.

Make light work of towing

Towing caravans or trailers is a great way to holiday. Simply

park up, unhitch and relax. But getting there safely is key. Your

vehicle needs to be appropriate for towing (right size, weight and

mechanically sound). And towbars should be compliant for heavy

loads and installed by a professional. Talk to Rolleston Diesels

and Petrols before you buckle up if you have any questions.

Book a service

How long has it been since you had your car serviced? If you

have to stop and think for even a few seconds, it’s probably been

too long. A service can include all your preventative maintenance

pieces: changing oil, checking lights, tyres, exhaust, steering and

many others that, if left unchecked, can be costly. Even dirty air

filters (not hard with plenty of dusty, shingle roads around Selwyn)

can be harmful. But it’s super easy to call your mechanics at

Rolleston Diesel and Petrols who will take care if it all for you.

Resource consent

• By Susan Sandys

A NEW retirement village

in Prebbleton will enable

more elderly to stay in their

community, says Age Concern.

Summerset has been

granted resource consent

to build a $170 million

retirement village

in Prebbleton. It will

be built on a 9ha site

on Springs Rd, previously

owned by Meadow

Mushrooms.

It will offer more than

290 independent homes, adding

to more than 100 villas and

serviced apartments at Bupa

Ashford Retirement Village at

Prebbleton, where stage one is

complete.

Age Concern Canterbury

chief executive Simon Templeton

said he welcomed Summerset

getting the green light for its

project.

“It is great to see the investment

in a rural area, this will

enable people to

choose to move and

retire there, and more

importantly will enable

people to stay in their

community, if and

when they decide to

make that move into

a retirement village,”

Templeton said.

The Summerset village will

include a mix of two-and-threebedroom

villas and cottages,

including serviced apartments

and care rooms.

Demolition of the disused

factory building on site was to

Simon

Templeton

begin late this month, while

earthworks will begin in April.

Construction will start in January

next year.

Summerset general manager

development Aaron Smail said

it would be the fourth

Summerset retirement

village in Canterbury, and

he expected there would

be strong demand.

The complex would

have a village centre with

recreational amenities

including an indoor swimming

pool, café, lounges,

library, exercise room, hobbies

room and residents’ bar. There

would be communal vegetable

gardens, a residents’ workshop,

barbecue facilities, an all-weather

bowling green and a state-ofthe-art

memory care centre for

10 APRIL • LINCOLN

residents with dementia.

“The 20-apartment memory

care centre includes facilities

specifically designed for people

living with dementia, including

large communal areas and an

outdoor courtyard for

freedom of movement

and independence,”

Smail said.

“These centres

provide residents

with the dignity and

respect of having their

own home within a

secure centre, which is

purpose-built for their needs.”

Summerset is one of

the leading operators and

developers of retirement villages

in New Zealand, with 33 villages

completed or in development

across the country.

MODERN: Construction of the $170 million Summerset retirement village at Prebbleton will begin in January next year. ​

In Brief

CAR FIRE SPREADS

A stolen car was set alight on

Gilmours Rd, setting fire to

surrounding grass on Monday.

Lincoln Volunteer Fire Brigade

members were called to the blaze

about 5.50am. Chief Jeremy

Greenwood said a motorist

had noticed the fire from some

distance away and phoned 111. “It

could have been a lot worse, given

the dry conditions. I think if there

was any wind it could have spread

quite dramatically,” Greenwood

said. Meanwhile, the brigade

assisted St John at a crash where

a motor-cyclist received minor

injuries, at 3.30pm, Saturday, on

Gebbies Pass Rd.

EMERGENCY PREPARATION

The Selwyn Emergency

Management Team is running a

series of free presentations about

being prepared for all kinds of

emergencies. The first session

is at Leeston Primary School

today, 7–8.30pm. Following

presentations will be held on

May 19, 7–8.30pm at Darfield

Recreation Centre and later in

the year at other venues in the

district. For further information

KIRWEE’S ALASTAIR Frizzell

said it was “absolutely brilliant”

to have been awarded the 2021

Agri-Innovation Award at the

South Island Agricultural Field

Days last week.

A panel of three industryexpert

judges were impressed

by the new technology offered

in Frizzell Ltd’s Smart Paddock

Weigher, and were unanimous in

their decision.

“There’s been a huge amount of

work go into this development,”

Frizzell said.

“It’s really exciting, for the

whole team, to get the project to

the point where it’s ready to commercialise.”

Frizzell employs 10 people

at the Kirwee-based company,

which specialises in agricultural

electronics. The company was in

the process of putting the Smart

Paddock Weigher on the market.

The solar-powered machine

allows farmers to weigh young

livestock in the paddock, saving

farmer time and resources and

supporting animal health and

well-being.

STOCK EZY’s flow control gate

picked up the runner-up award.

The field days were a huge

success, with fantastic weather

and crowd numbers exceeding

organisers’ expectations.

Chairwoman Michaela McLeod

estimated up to 34,000 people

had attended. The highlight was

everyone’s enthusiasm for being

at an event of that magnitude in

the post-Covid environment.

DOMESTIC student numbers

are at a 10-year high at Lincoln

University.

Numbers for semester 1 are 35

per cent higher than at the same

time last year, with a total of 894

domestic equivalent full-time

students enrolled, an increase of

231 on semester 1, 2020. At the

same time, new-to-programme

domestic enrolments are up 58

per cent on last year.

These figures represent the

highest number of domestic

EFTS enrolled for the university

semester 1 programmes since

before 2010.

Acting Vice-Chancellor

Professor Bruce McKenzie said

domestic student numbers were

significantly ahead of target, and

demonstrated the university’s

ability to respond to changing

demands in the Covid-19-affected

environment.

“New Zealand’s primary industries

are confronting a number

of distinct challenges in the

Covid-impacted marketplace,”

McKenzie said.

“Lincoln has moved swiftly over

the last 12 months to tailor course

offerings to meet the demands

of the country’s thriving food

and fibre sectors, and ultimately

produce graduates who will help

drive the economy forward.”

Property management.

Six sub-degree programmes in

the ields of food and fibre became

fees-free when the Government’s

targeted training and apprenticeship

fund took effect in semester 2

last year. The university extended

this initiative to offer its own fee

waivers on targeted courses until

December 2022.

Lincoln has also recorded its

highest total of Māori students

since before 2010, with 161 students,

an increase of 17 per cent

since semester 1 last year.

McKenzie said this increase

was particularly significant for

the university, which had a key

focus on boosting the achievements

of Māori and Pasifka.

“The university is committed

to contributing to the Māori

economy by developing trained

and skilled thought leaders to

support maximum performance

and growth of Māori assets. The

increasing participation and

retention rate of Māori learners is

a particularly pleasing outcome

of our successful 2021 enrolment

campaign,” he said.

Females outnumbered males

this year, accounting for 53 per

cent of the university’s student

population, further cementing a

trend that began in 2018.

As expected, the university

has experienced a drop in

international student enrolments

due to border restrictions. Its

2020 total of 359 semester 1

EFTS compares to 195 EFTS in

2021.

Students take win

against police teams

• By Susan Sandys

IT WAS an epic battle of youth

against experience at the

inaugural Rolleston College

versus Selwyn Police Sports Day.

Police were on the back foot to

start with, outnumbered at just

37, compared to 60 students.

Co-organiser Constable Glenn

Dawson said all games were

played in great spirit.

There was plenty of banter at

the basketball. The result saw

students come out on top by just

one point, achieved in the final

second.

Students also won the netball

and cricket, while police won

the football and touch rugby.

The latter game was the undoing

of the area response manager

Senior Sergeant Dean Harker,

who was injured in the first

minute, tearing a hamstring.

Police were quite happy to be

the underdogs, it has just made

them all the more determined

for next year, Dawson said.

said farming had not been her career

goal until a visit from Lincoln

University and DairyNZ to her

high school.

“I’ve always loved science and

saw myself working in a lab of

some sort,” the Christchurch City

Young Farmers Club member said.

But farming had the obvious advantage

of being able to combine

science with her passion for the

outdoors, and today she is a farm

systems scientist at DairyNZ.

“I couldn’t imagine working in

any other industry now.”

The eight regional finalists competed

in eight modules and battled

it out head-to-head in two time

and point races at the Malvern

Show, while also undertaking

a written exam and the famous

buzzer quiz.

Runner-up on Saturday was

Jonny Brown of the Dunsandel

Young Farmers Club, while third

was Peter O’Connor of the Lincoln

Young Farmers Club.

LEMONWOOD GROVE

School pupil Angus Winter has

combined his love of nature and

photography, and been rewarded

for his efforts.

The nine-year-old has been

named as the winner of the 10

years and under category in the

Canterbury Museum’s Amazing

Animals! photography competition.

Angus photographed a tūī,

poised momentarily amongst

flower heads on a flax bush.

He captured the image on a

family trip to Ōkārito on the

West Coast.

His father Drew Winter said

Angus had always admired

wildlife, for as long as he could

remember, and had begun photographing

animals about two

years ago.

“He’s got pictures of wildlife on

his walls in is bedroom, he just

loves it,” Winter said.

It had taken about 20 minutes

to get the winning shot of the

tūī at Ōkārito, It was on a board

walk with flax on both sides, and

Angus had sat underneath the

bushes and taken lots of photos.

As well as picking up first

prize, Angus received a highly

commended award for a photo

he took of a kererū. This was also

taken at Ōkārito, in the garden of

a house.

Tui earns Angus photography prize

Frankie Hindson, 8, of Tai Tapu

School, was the runner up with

her photo of Buddy the broody

hen. In the 11 to 15 years category,

13 -year-old Zion Cooper won

with his image of a tūī, and Eleanor

Begley, 13, was the runner-up

with a close-up of a fly.

Winners received a $100

Prezzy card, and runners-up

received a $50 Prezzy card. All

entries are displayed in the museum

foyer.

Canterbury Museum Associate

Curator Natural History

Johnathon Ridden was one of the

competition’s judges.

He said the judging panel was

staggered by the quality of the

entries.

“All the entries were just fantastic,

which made choosing the

winners very difficult. We’d like

to thank everyone who entered.

Canterbury is clearly home to

some very talented young photographers,”

Ridden said.

The competition, previously

held in 2018, was designed to

complement Wildlife Photographer

of the Year, an exhibition at

the museum which ran from November.

It featured some of the

world’s best wildlife photographs

direct from the Natural History

Museum, London.

Long-Term Plan – have your say

on Selwyn's big decisions

Selwyn residents can now have their say on proposals in the Council’s 10-year plan.

Consultation on the Long-Term Plan will be open until 5pm Friday 30 April.

The consultation document – This Way… 2031, submission forms and further information are available

online at selwyn.govt.nz/thisway2031 and through Council offices and service centres. Information will

also be provided through mail box drops.

Mayor Sam Broughton is encouraging residents, ratepayers and stakeholders to make sure they have

their say.

“We have a number of big decisions ahead of us over the next decade,” he says. “It’s really important

that we hear from the community about whether we’ve got the priorities right, and what things we

might do differently.

“With the district continuing to grow, we need to make sure we’re planning for the future but also

looking after our existing assets and infrastructure, and completing the projects we’ve already started.

“I hope everyone takes some time to read about our proposals, come to a drop-in session or talk to

their local councillor – and give us feedback about what’s important to them over the next decade.”

Details of community events and drop-in sessions will be available on the Council’s social media

channels and at selwyn.govt.nz/thisway2031.

Council General Manager Communication and Customers Stephen Hill says there is a variety of ways

people can make a submission or give feedback, including through the online submission form, or by

completing a quick poll on key topics.

Printed copies of the consultation document and submission forms are also available, at the Council

offices at Rolleston and all Selwyn libraries.

The consultation document sets out eight key proposals which are open for consultation:

· Continuing the current approach to maintaining safe water supplies, which meet

community expectations, and comply with expected new regulations.

· Changing how residents pay for the supply of drinking water, to meet increasing costs and

to help manage high water demand.

· Building a new piped wastewater system for Darfield and Kirwee.

· Increasing funding for road maintenance.

· An extensive programme of road upgrades and new transport projects.

· Building a new community centre for Prebbleton.

· Building a new combined library/service centre and community centre on Leeston Park.

· Developing a new Hororata Community Centre on the domain.

The average proposed rates increase for the 2021/22 year (starting 1 July 2021) is 4.9%,

which is a total of $138, or $2.65 per week. Based on the proposals in the consultation

document, average annual rate rises over the 10-year period are forecast to be 4% to 5%

each year. For individual ratepayers the actual change may be smaller or greater, depending

on their location and the services provided.

Council easter opening hours

Some Council services and facilities will be affected by the Easter public holidays. For a full list of

opening hours over the weekend see selwyn.govt.nz

Economy stays strong

despite pandemic

Selwyn's economy has continued to grow despite the impacts of

the global pandemic.

The district remains one of the best-performing economies in the

country, with the latest figures from economic analysts Infometrics

showing Selwyn's economy grew by 1.7% last year, compared to a

2.6% drop nationallly.

This growth was reflected in consumer spending, which grew by

2.1% in the year to December 2020. Nationally, spending fell by

3.2% over the same time.

Unemployment in Selwyn remained at almost half the national level,

sitting at 2.6% at the end of the year compared to 4.6% nationally.

The figures show construction and the agriculture and food processing

industry were big factors in the strength of the Selwyn economy.

The number of houses sold last year was up by 31.2%, and 34%

more residential consent applications were filed with the Council.

In 2020 the Council issued consents for 1530 individual houses

and has continued receiving record numbers of building consent

applications in 2021.

Almost a quarter (23.2%) of people employed in Selwyn work in

agriculture and food processing, where returns have been steady and

are likely to increase in the coming year with a higher dairy pay out.

The Infometrics figures underscore the region's decade of strong

growth – with Selwyn seeing the second largest economic growth of

any district in the country over the past 10 years.

Mayor Sam Broughton says it has been good to see the way the

economy and community have remained strong during the pandemic.

“It was really heartening to see the way people in Selwyn pulled

together to support each other in a tough year last year. We know

we’re not through the full effects of that as a nation, and that there

are sectors here in Selwyn that are still feeling the pinch. But it’s

good to see much of our economy has remained strong, businesses

are positive about the future and that we continue to support each

other as a community.”

Share your views on our local

electoral arrangements

As part of our representation review on the local electoral system

in Selwyn we’re wanting to hear from you about “communities of

interest” and your views about the local electoral system. This is

about identifying the distinctive interests of a community, and how

ward boundaries and electoral arrangements reflect those interests

and respond to the community’s needs.

To find out more, and to complete the survey head to

selwyn.govt.nz/elections.

Everyone who completes the survey will be entered into a prize

draw for a $100 shopping voucher.

Ben Hope’s

judgement

pays off

• By Joshua Smith

CANTERBURY driver Ben Hope

convinced his parents, Greg and

Nina Hope, to take Homebush

Lad to Oamaru on Sunday and

his judgement paid off.

The seven-year-old gelding was

the only representative from the

stable to attend the meeting and

he gave them the perfect result

when he won the Whitestone

Livestock Ltd Waimate Cup.

“We were rapt with him,” Nina

Hope said.

“There were a few tired ones

around him. He has been running

in all of those cup races so his fitness

is right up there.”

Hope was pleased with Homebush

Lad heading into the race

and said she was delighted he was

finally able to get a cup win for his

connections.

“He has been pretty unlucky in

his last few starts to be running

into some nice horses, so it was

really nice to see him get that

win,” she said.

Hope said she is unsure of what

the future holds for Homebush

Lad and may leave that planning

up to her son.

“It gets pretty tough now with

the points system,” she said.

Team teal’s $44k for cancer research

FEMALE HARNESS racing

drivers have raised $44,000 for

ovarian cancer – all by winning

in teal colours.

For six weeks the country’s

female drivers, known as team

teal, were involved in the campaign

which raises awareness

of ovarian cancer and funds for

research.

When it finished at a recent

meeting at Reefton there had

been 65 wins, with Harness

Racing New Zealand and Woodlands

Stud committing $100 for

each win, with various clubs and

individuals also making huge

contributions.

West Melton-based Samantha

Ottley was the most successful

team teal driver with 16 wins

from February 1 to March 14.

Collectors were at many race

meetings too with race-goers

and licence-holders very generous

in their support of the

project.

Teal Pants is a transtasman

initiative set up by Australian

Duncan McPherson after his

wife died from ovarian cancer.

This year was the fourth Teal

Pants campaign in New Zealand

s country and all money raised

here is spent here as well.

This year’s total of $44,000

is down slightly on last year

($50,000) but is still being hailed

as a success considering the

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

restraints brought about by the

Covid-19 pandemic. The campaign

has succeeded in bringing

the issue of ovarian cancer into

the open and this year awareness

was very much the focus of the

campaign.

WomenCan, which partners

with HRNZ during the Teal

Pants campaign, said the New

Zealand funds have contributed

to the first phase of a new innovative

screening programme

called NOVEL.

“NOVEL will enable tumour

profiling for New Zealand

women with high grade serous

ovarian cancer, which will allow

them rapid access to participate

in specific international clinical

trials,” gynaecological oncologist

Associate Professor Bryony

Simcock said.

This year 300 women will be

diagnosed with ovarian cancer

where the chance of surviving

beyond the five year cancer

benchmark is 39 per cent. NOV-

EL has the potential to benefit

up to 90 per cent of women with

ovarian cancer in the future.

Said WomenCan head of fundraising

and development Karen

Livingstone: “Nearly every improvement

in cancer treatment

has resulted from a clinical trial.

Women needs access to the latest

innovative research in the hope

it will improve their outcomes.

When a woman is diagnosed

with ovarian cancer she feels

overwhelmed and alone.

“The support shown by the

Harness Racing New Zealand

community to fund more

research and resources for these

women is so appreciated and

valued.”

WHEN STEPHEN Swain

approached part-time Leeston

trainer Murray Alfeld and asked

him to train a horse for him

Alfeld had an obvious question.

“Why me?” Alfeld asked.

Swain’s cartage company does

the baleage work for Alfeld, who

has mixed training and farrier

work for many years but these

days only trains three horses.

So to have Swain ask him to

buy him a horse at the sales and

train it was a shock for the now

62-year-old.

“Stephen just asked me to buy

him and the family a horse at the

yearling sales one day and train

it,” Alfeld said.

“I told him I would help and

find a horse and break it in and

then he could send it to any

trainer he wanted but he said no,

we have done a lot of work with

you and we want you to train it.

“He is a good guy like that,

hard-working, loves his rugby

and wanted to do the right thing.”

So Alfeld went to the sales and

found a filly Swain paid $22,000

for and at Addington on Friday

that filly, Aldebaran Floss won

the $50,000 What The Hill NZ

Trotting Oaks.

In doing so she beat some of

the country’s biggest trotting stables,

helped in no small way by

a typical Colin De Filippi drive

and the ace draw.

“That all helped and Colin has

always been a big help to me so

it is a massive thrill to win an

Oaks,’’ Alfeld said.

“It is the biggest win I have

had. I have had good horses

in the past like Clover Don,

who won on Cup Day and had

some good wins for Colin and

even Robbie Holmes when

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

‘Biggest win’ for Alfeld

Alfeld.

they trained him because I was

moving and setting up a new

property.

“But to win a race like this for

Stephen after he was so loyal was

a real thrill.”

Aldebaran Floss is now

qualified for the Jewels so Alfeld

and Swain have a chip in the big

game and a filly with speed and

some breeding value.

SEFTON WON its first country

cricket title in three years after

its senior players stood up in

key moments in a hard-fought

final against Darfield on

Saturday.

Rangiora’s showpiece Mainpower

Oval cricket ground

hosted the final of the CRV

Ambreed Country Premier One

Day 2020/21 competition at the

weekend.

A young and talented Darfield

XI batted first on the first-class

ground but were in early trouble

at 33/2 after Canterbury Country

paceman Jed Roberts removed

brothers and openers Zak and

Liam Foulkes cheaply.

Ryan Hughes batted

superbly to anchor the innings

before he was stumped by Tim

Harrison off the wily bowling of

Nigel Granger for 64 runs off 80

balls.

It was then another experienced

and canny Sefton campaigner,

Jeff Jones who swung

the match firmly in the Seals’

favour.

Jones ripped through the middle

order, snaring four key wickets

and helping restrict Darfield

to be all out in the 45 th and final

over for just 177.

Wednesday March 31 2021 Selwyn Times

SPORT 21

Darfield beaten in

final against Sefton

Chasing the mediocre total,

Sefton’s run chase got off to the

worse start, losing Micah Campbell

in the first over.

Chris Warner (32 off 48)

and Matt Laffey (56 off 106)

knuckled down to repair the innings,

putting on 70 runs for the

second wicket.

A composed unbeaten

half-century by Lance Taylor

steered the Seals to the six

wicket victory with 21 balls to

spare.

Jones was named man of the

match with his inspirational

spell with the ball, and Sefton

were thankful for the experience

and big-game knowledge of him,

Laffey, Taylor, Harrison and

Granger to guide them to the

title.

Weedons beat Oxford-

Rangiora in the Premier plate

final, while Greendale edged

out Allenton in the senior

competition.

The mere thought of fleas has most of us

instinctively scratching our heads. Many

pet owners, who are ‘on-to-it’ in summer

and winter, decrease the use of flea

treatments in autumn and winter under

the misconception that they are less of a

problem in the cooler months.

In a natural setting a dog or cat would

be less likely to contract a flea infestation

in winter as the cold weather causes the

fleas to lay dormant. However, most of

us keep our beloved pets and dogs inside

during the cold months, curled up and

cosy in front of the fire. They are, after all,

part of our family.

Fleas love a warm and cosy house as

much as we do! Optimal conditions for

fleas are between 21 and 30°C, and 70%

humidity. Our use of central heating

provides a warm environment which

allows the fleas to breed all-year-round

and thrive regardless of seasons.

Do not wait until you see your fourlegged

friend start to

scratch behind their

ears. By providing

on-going treatment

all year round you can

eliminate the insidious

cycle of fleas breeding in your pets and

household.

Flea products are effective when used

properly but they are relatively expensive,

which can be a real consideration for

some pet owners. It is important we

weigh in the balance how much more

expensive a flea infestation is compared

to ongoing treatment and how much

more difficult and time consuming it is to

correct.

You may decide to take the gamble but

as well as the inconvenience and

gigantic pile of washing there

are serious considerations

for the health and

well-being of your pet.

Fleas are one of the

most common causes

of distressing skin

problems in dogs and

cats and in severe

cases kittens can die

from anaemia due to

blood loss from the

feeding fleas.

It is easier than ever to manage fleas

all year round. There are many different

preventatives on the market and they all

have pros and cons. No single product is

right for every animal. Talk to your local

veterinarian and discuss what they

feel is effective

and best

treatment for

your pet.

ARA INSTITUTE OF CANTERBURY

Flexible business

courses at Ara

Work, family and other commitments can

sometimes feel like a barrier to study, but

they needn’t be. Ara Institute of Canterbury’s

business degrees and graduate diplomas come

with a level of flexibility that make it possible

to work, study and have a life.

Part-time options and a choice of daytime or

evening classes mean you can create a schedule

that works for you. If you have pre-schoolers,

Ara’s City campus offers two on-campus

childcare options where your tamariki can be

cared for while you attend daytime classes.

Ara also offers comprehensive student

support services, and its tutors are known for

going above and beyond to ensure students

achieve their study goals. Olivia Smith says she

felt supported throughout her time at Ara. “The

tutors were amazing – 100% supportive and

they helped us every step of the way.” Fellow

business student Rachel Fraser describes her

tutors as “lovely” and says they cared about

students’ wellbeing and education.

As well as creating a flexible,

supportive study environment,

Ara offers extensive subject choice.

Its business degrees and graduate

diplomas come in a wide range of

specialties including accounting,

entrepreneurship,

project

management, operations and

production management, human

resources, strategic management,

event management, marketing and

sales and hospitality management.

Originally from Italy, Anita

Dazzi enrolled to study a Graduate

Diploma in Business at Ara, specialising in

human resources.

“I chose Ara because it had really good

graduate options and it’s very practical. I’d

already studied for five years so I only wanted

to study for one more year. I knew after a year

I’d have a qualification and skills that I could

start putting into practise.”

At university, Anita recalls being among

300-or-so other students in lectures. “The

lecturers wouldn’t know if I was there or not,

let alone know my name. At Ara, the tutors

have a real ability to share their passion

and engage students. They’re approachable,

personable and always there to support you.

If I had questions or I wasn’t able to attend a

class because I was working, they were happy

to meet me and go over what I’d missed.”

A reader responds to

last week’s Selwyn

Times article about

water rates rising

How disingenuous of the

district council to propose

a significant water rates

price rise in order to

combat spiralling demand.

Given the 35.8 per cent

population boom – from

44,595 residents to 60,561

– in the district between

2013 and 2018, with many

more families expected to

occupy the vast number

of houses under construction

or proposed in the

ever-expanding Rolleston

environment, spiralling

demand would come as

little surprise to anyone.

Hasn’t the district

council missed the

opportunity of a lifetime

to make innovative

requirements the new

norm for all new builds

since the beginning of the

post-quake boom?

This was the chance to

make rainwater collection

systems mandatory on all

new builds. Rainwater

harvesting is the third largest

source of water in Australia,

after surface water

(dams) and groundwater.

Roof-collected

rainwater can be made

safe and potable so that

it complies with strict

international drinking

water standards.

In South Australia,

42 per cent of residents

mostly drink rainwater in

preference to mains water

without any apparent

effect on the incidence of

gastrointestinal illness.

Even if this resource

was used only in the

outdoors for irrigation,

this would allow millions

of litres of reticulated

water to be used for

domestic supply. – Pam

Dempsey

Lincoln’s adventurous mountain-bikers can now let loose at a new jump

and bump track. A local initiative, driven by the youths, has culminated

in the transformation of an unused area next to the Lincoln Mens

Shed and Lincoln Event Centre at the end of Meijer Drive. The council

agreed to the use of the site, which had a large stockpile of soil. The

Lincoln Community Committee also pitched in, including member

Nic McPherson who supplied an excavator. Specialised track designer

Cameron Bisset came on board, the riders are adding finishing touches

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-inmy-lincoln-section

A FEW weeks back my

trouble and strife was stung

by a small insect on her

neck.

Being the extremely

caring husband I am,

I showed sympathy

before duly capturing the

offending specimen into a

sample vial.

A friend at Ministry

of Primary Industries

and Lincoln University

alumni identified it as the

ew Zealand Michelin ant

(Fulakora saundersi).

THis is a primitive

endemic ant species usually

found in forested areas of

New Zealand and also the

Chatham Islands and Three

Kings Islands. The ant is

3-5mm in length, has short,

12-segmented antennae

and varies from yellow to

dark brown in colour.

IT HAS slender, long

mandibles that usually

contain eight teeth.

THis species belongs to a

group called Dracula ants –

a name given because some

species are known to drink

the blood of their young.

However, Dracula

ants are known more for

their ability to snap their

mandibles together at an

impressive 320km/h –

that’s 5000 times faster

than a human blink.

As if this isn’t enough,

the New Zealand Michelin

ant also can sting to

immobilise its prey.

THis species is usually

found under rocks, logs or

in leaf litter, and nests are

a simple depression in the

soil containing 10 to 30

workers.

Larvae are fed bits of

arthropods until the last

larval stage spins a yellow

cocoon to pupate into.

Toyota Supra – return of a true icon

I KNOW MY son regrets selling

his Toyota Supra. You see, it

was a rare targa top model,

twin turbocharged and it had

had a manual transmission

conversion.

He still talks about that car

with much enthusiasm, and from

my time driving it I can recall it

was a ferocious, wild beast, hard

to tame but immense fun at the

same time.

It was one of the last Supras

Toyota made, until now.

Well, you could be forgiven

because the new Toyota Supra

isn’t entirely a Toyota, it’s been

developed in conjunction with

BMW and even gets a BMW

engine. What’s more, the sleek,

sporty, very desirable body shell

sits on a BMW Z4 platform and is

built in Graz, Austria.

I’m not knocking that concept,

and it’s not the first Toyota

collaboration that has been

successful, take its 86 sport

coupe, it was shared with Subaru

and has gone on to claim healthy

sales amongst a wide buyer

demographic.

The Supra, though, is

something else. It’s a car for those

who want a little more grunt in

their sports car purchase, and

being built under the influence

of Toyota’s vast manufacturing

machine you can guarantee

it’s going to last you for many

years to come and will be totally

reliable along the way.

Much like it was with my son’s

Supra, it was bullet-proof, no

matter how hard it was driven.

The newcomer is a touch of

class, its looks stunning, low, sleek

and sharp and is every inch the

desirable two-seater coupe you

would expect wearing that badge.

Under the skin there’s no

mistake it has a lot of BMW

input, the controls, displays

and materials are much the

same as you would find in other

models from the German brand.

Nevertheless, I’m hooked. It’s the

best of both worlds really.

The Supra lands here at

$98,990, and to me that’s a bit of a

sports car bargain, the evaluation

car was a limited edition high

spec variant that added an extra

$1000.

Buyers of the Supra will also

want performance, and I’m

pleased to report that the 3-litre

engine is true to the design of

the past. There are six-cylinders

boosted by a twin-scroll

turbocharging arrangement.

Toyota claims power outputs of

285kW and 500Nm, the torque

figure available all of the way

from 1800 to 5800rpm. If these

outputs look familiar, yes they

are the same as Z4 and the 340i

wagon that I evaluated in these

columns recently.

I recall saying that engine was

an absolute dynamo in terms

of strength, it is responsive and

constantly wanting to work hard.

The Supra will lunge from

a standstill to 100km/h in a

blistering 4.1sec, and will push

through a highway overtake

in 3.8sec (80-120km/h). These

are quick times and will satisfy

any driver who likes to feel the

urgency of a genuine sports

vehicle.

What’s more, the engine is

quiet and smooth, it howls a

little towards the redline but

that’s a traditional six-cylinder

characteristic, and a Supra buyer

would like to have the sound of

energy.

Drive is through an eight-speed

automatic gearbox, there are few

surprises there, quick, clean shifts

are on offer, and there are paddle

shifters if you want to change

manually.

Power is then channelled

rearwards, and the feel you get

from that is traditional, there’s

something about the push you

get from the rear wheels and, for

that matter, the Supra delivers a

forceful feel and sitting almost

above the rear axles all that

movement and feel is delivered to

the driver.

I took the evaluation car on

my favourite Canterbury high

EYE-CATCHING: Low, sleek lines of the new Supra compares well to the 1999 Kiddie-owned targa top.

• Price – Toyota Supra,

$99,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4379mm; width, 2026mm;

height, 1292mm

• Configuration – Sixcylinder,

rear-wheel-drive,

2998cc, 285kW, 500Nm,

eight-speed automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 4.3sec

• Fuel usage – 7.7l/100km

country run. The Supra feels

tight on the road and although

the spring and damper rates are

firmish there is still on board

compliance, you don’t get tired or

sore sitting in it for long periods,

it just feels so right, it is balanced

and controllable.

Sure, there are extensive

traction control systems, but they

aren’t put to the test. Huge rear

Michelin Pilot tyres (275/35 x

19in) have grip in abundance and

it’s actually quite hard to make

the rear playful while turn-in

up front is direct and feedback

of what the tyres are doing in

relation to the road surface is

TOYOTA

SUPRA:

BMW

technology

used

throughout.

communicated fully.

Powering out of some of those

tight corners, the rear squats and

grips,propulsion is mustered in

quickly, and if you need to stamp

on the brakes for the next corner

a premium Brembo system

generates huge stopping force.

You could well be excused for

thinking all of this fun comes at

the price of fuel use. Instead, you

may well be surprised, Toyota

claims a 7.7-litre per 100km

combined cycle average, much

the same as BMW claims with

the Z4.

My time with the test car was

surprising given I did explore

high revolutions on many an

occasion, it went back to the

dealership showing 8.6l/100km

on the readout. For the record,

at 100km/h the engine is turning

over at just 1600rpm, merely

sipping fuel at the rate of just

5l/100km.

There’s nothing quite like

the feel of a turbocharged sixcylinder

engine, I’ve hung on to

my trusty old Toyota in the event

finances would allow that to

become a project whereby I could

afford to hook a turbo kit onto

that engine, it’s the same design as

my son’s old Supra.

I’ll never be able to afford

a new Supra, but I consider

myself privileged to have had

a week with the evaluation car,

it certainly is something very

refreshing and is a car you would

never tire of.

However, you may tire of the

attention you will receive, never

before have I been in a car that

has received so much comment

and adoring looks.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

Veteran car run

remembers Anzacs

When Malcolm and his wife, Anita, took

their veteran Renault car out for a drive to

Sheffield on Anzac Day several years ago,

they had no idea that their maiden journey

would turn into an annual event.

“It was so nice,” says Malcom of

the wreaths laid around the Sheffield

cenotaph, “and quite moving to think we

were driving one of the cars associated

with that time.” The pair continued on to

the Hororata memorial and then came up

with the idea of an Anzac vintage car run

that covered 80km around the Malvern

District visiting war memorials with their

newly laid wreaths.

“We proposed the run to the Vintage

Car Club, which embraced the idea, and

now it’s a regular event on the calendar.”

Sponsored by Dutton Garage in

Christchurch, the Malvern Anzac Run

annually attracts veteran cars from all

over Canterbury and from as far away as

Ashburton and Dunedin.

“It has an appeal to vintage car owners

because we travel on back roads, which are

quieter and more suitable for veteran cars

prior to 1918,” says Malcom.

The event is open to cars of the war

years and just slightly after – cars that have

been driven after the war era. The oldest

registered car in New Zealand, a 1900

Wolseley, annually makes the trip from

Dunedin to take part.

The event kicks off at 10am on Anzac

Day from the Darfield Recreation Centre,

where club members meet for morning

tea with their cars on public display

until 11.30am. In the past the group has

been waved on its way by Mayor Sam

Broughton.

Malcom says it’s a great way to showcase

vintage cars. “Early cars are part of our

history – it’s been left to people to preserve

them, there is no government funding like

there is for historical buildings. It’s nice to

keep the cars on the road so people can see

and appreciate them.’

Not only can the public get to view the

cars on Anzac Day but if they own a war

era vintage car, they are also invited to

take part in the run. To find out more,

contact Malcom on 027 433 8047.

Symbolic: From left – Colin Winter of Dunedin (with his

1900 Wolseley) and George Lee of Christchurch Alldays

and Onions, at the start of the 2019 run, tear up the red

flag that was once required in the early days to be carried

by a person walking in front of a moving vehicle.

GARDENING

Plant your natives now

• By Henri Ham

IF YOU WANT to add bold and

attractive plants to your garden

that are resilient and will last for

years with little love, then look no

further than native plants.

Right now – in autumn – it’s

the perfect time to plant natives

in your garden. Planting your

natives now lets them really get

established before the cooler and

wetter months arrive.

The great thing about natives

is their ability to cope in areas of

high rainfall, and their resilience to

growing in a range of landscapes.

Once planted, natives can easily

flourish for years with very little

extra care, making a very low

maintenance, but striking kiwi

garden feel. And, as an added

bonus, natives are fantastic for

attracting birds to your garden, as

they love the flowers, nectar and

berries.

Worried natives are only for

people with loads of space? Lowgrowing

flaxes take up relatively

little room, and can provide years

of enjoyment. Cookianum

mountain flax is a dwarf variety,

with lush spiky green foliage. And

Banks Peninsula blue (Festuca

actae) is an ornamental perennial

grass, which is grown for its

subtle, soft blue foliage.

Many native trees and hedging

plants are diverse in their use.

They can be shaped into smaller

shrubs or aligned into hedges.

SUBTLE: Festuca actae or

Banks Peninsula blue is an

ornamental perennial grass.

Trees such as Pittosporum

(tenuifolium) look great as an

individual planted tree, but when

planted around 1m apart form a

fast-growing hedge that can be

moulded to your liking. Another

example is Akeake (green

or purple) – usually considered

a fast-growing shrub, but if left

alone will become a tree reaching

3-4m.

Kakabeak is a favourite of mine

– a lovely shrub with attractive

spring/summer flowers that resemble

the beak of the Kaka parrot.

They can reach 2 -3m high,

and last 15-20 years – making for

a pretty garden, with a relaxed

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

upkeep. Once planted, you can

easily plant annuals around these

natives, and vary these yearly to

change the garden feel.

Once you’ve got your natives,

select their new home in the

garden. Natives can be planted in

boggy areas too, so it could be a

chance to revitalise a wet or lessattractive

part of your garden.

I often encourage gardeners

to grow ‘drifts’ of natives plants;

which means planting an uneven

number of plants, or unbalanced

groupings, to create a casual and

natural looking native garden –

similar to the flowers in a cottage

garden.

To plant, dig a hole for each

plant and bury to the top of its

root ball. They will need an initial

watering every few days to ensure

their best possible start. Natives

enjoy rich soil, so mulch with a

rich compost, and top this up sixmonthly.

You can layer shells, pebbles

and different sized rocks around

your plants for a contemporary

feel, and this will additionally help

keep the weeds away.

Natives can also be planted in

larger pots, and can thrive for a

few years with minimum work.

Smaller flaxes naturally lend

themselves here, but native shrubs

can look really pretty too.

The pots will restrict their roots

and create a ‘bonsai’ effect, keeping

them naturally smaller.

TOP-SELLER: Polyanthus grow anywhere there is sun.

Add colour for winter

THERE’S A reason polyanthus

is one of the top selling plants

year after year. In fact, there are a

couple of reasons.

Polyanthus is very easy to

plant and grows just about

anywhere – as long as there’s

some sun.

But we think the secret behind

it’s popularity, comes down to

the fantastic, bright colours it

comes in – particularly at a time

like winter when there isn’t so

much colour in the garden.

This pretty and popular plant

come in a range of hues like

pink, blue and red and looks

great in hanging baskets or

borders.

You can grow polyanthus in

pots but they also look good

planted around potted citrus

trees.

Once you’ve got your seedlings

you need to find a spot to grow

them. If you’re planting outside,

make sure the soil is welldrained,

then dig over and add

some compost.

If you’re potting your

polyanthus, use potting mix to

ensure they have the best kickstart

to their growth.

In around four to six weeks

you should have these tight, low,

compact and colourful plants

brightening up your home and

garden.

Pick off the dead flowers to

encourage more flowering and

watch out for slugs.

Handy tip: If your polyanthus

has trouble flowering, add a

little bit of dried blood from the

garden centre to provide more

potassium.

Garden

In the

with intelligro

Autumn is a great time for getting things

ticked off your ‘To Do’ list in the garden.

Winter gardens start in autumn, so get

those veggies in ready for harvesting

through winter.

Lawn maintenance is near the top of the

list, both preparing new ones and sprucing

up existing. Fertilise on an overcast day,

preferably with rain on the forecast. New

lawns can be sown now too.

Edible Garden

Plant seedling such as cabbage,

cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, kale,

beetroot, silver beet and radish.

Flower Garden

Bulbs can be planted now;

daffodils, freesias, tulips,

anemone to name a few.

GARDENING 31

Time to tackle the

tricky garden pests

AUTUMN DAYS herald a

change towards cooler weather,

the soil stays moist and there’s

colour everywhere.

It can also be the best season

for planting, because new plants

have time to settle in before

they’re faced with their first

summer.

Fertilising

Spread organic pellets around

shrubs and flowerbeds.

Feed citrus and other fruit trees

with citrus food.

Clear away weeds and grass

at the base and spread a layer of

organic mulch over the root area

(keeping well clear of the trunk).

Remember, feeding with high

potash fertilisers encourages

blooming and, even more

importantly, builds plants’

resistance to disease (essential

at this time of year when fungal

problems are rife).

Lawn care

Give lawns a feed with a longlasting

fertiliser. Early autumn

is the ideal time to rejuvenate

tired lawns. Spike with a fork or

a purpose-designed lawn aerator

PESTS: Caterpillars and white butterflies will destroy

cabbages.

and oversow with a lawn seed

blend.

Pest control

Watch out for the autumn

influx of caterpillars.

White moths and butterflies

attack cabbages, cauliflowers,

rocket and their relatives,

vine moth caterpillars are

demolishing grape leaves, flax

caterpillar is stripping leaf

sections of leaves, leaf rollers are

knitting leaves and emerging to

graze on apples, feijoas and other

fruit.

Use low toxic options for

controlling most caterpillars.

Grass grubs and porina, too, can

destroy lawns.

Treat weeds

Many annual weeds are

approaching maturity and should

be removed before they have the

chance to spread their seeds.

Other autumn tasks

Prune the hydrangea stems that

flowered last summer.

Reduce clusters of camellia

buds to one per stem. Divide

perennial plants and spread to

other parts of the garden.

After their leaves have fallen,

spray deciduous fruit trees (eg

peaches) with a copper fungicide.

Good coverage will clean up

the remains of summer pests and

diseases. Move cold-sensitive

container plants into shelter.

MOISTURE: Mulch shouldn’t be used just to make the

garden look tidy.

Use mulch judiciously,

don’t make volcanoes

MULCH, IT seems, is the new

compost.

There’s nothing wrong with

mulch when it’s used judiciously,

but creating ‘‘mulch volcanoes’’

around your trees is a very bad

idea, especially when it’s done

mainly for aesthetics.

The root zone of an established

tree extends beyond its drip

line, so mounding the mulch

against the trunk does little for

the roots, except cause roots near

the trunk to grow into the mulch

volcano.

The piled-up mulch can soften

the bark of some young trees and

invites insects and diseases.

The lower trunk, unlike the

roots, cannot easily survive

long-term with the constant

moisture the volcano traps—it’s

the equivalent of planting a tree

too deeply.

Bear in mind that the main

reasons for mulching are to

retain soil moisture, suppress

weeds and moderate soil

temperatures — not to cover the

garden so it looks tidier.

Operative Selwyn District Plan

PRIVATE PLAN CHANGE 73

Rolleston West Residential Limited have lodged a private plan change request with the Council.

Selwyn District Council

Clause 5 of the First Schedule, Resource Management Act 1991

Plan change 73 (PC73) proposes to change the Operative Selwyn District Plan to rezone

approximately 160 hectares of Living 3 land to Living Z and Business 1 (Local Centre) on Dunns

Crossing Road, West Rolleston.

The subject land is comprised of two separate blocks:

· The Holmes Block, being a 87.5 hectare property situated on the southwest corner of Dunns

Crossing Road and Main South Road; and

· The Skellerup Block, being a 72.7 hectare property situated on the west side of Dunns

Crossing Road, approximately midway between Selwyn Road and Brookside Road.

The change seeks to insert a development plan and associated rules into the District Plan. If

approved it would result in development of approximately 2,100 residential lots across the two

sites and a local centre on each site.

PC73 proposes amendments to the Operative Selwyn District Plan that include:

· amending the District Planning Maps to rezone the subject land from Living 3 to Living Z and

Business 1 (Local Centre)

· incorporating an outline development plan to coordinate and guide the future development of

the sites.

The plan change request and associated assessment can be read at Council’s Rolleston

Headquarters 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 request. 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:

Posted to: Planning Department, Selwyn District Council, PO Box 90, Rolleston 7643

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

Faxed to: (03) 347 2799 (if you fax your submission please also 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 approve or decline the plan change request. Any submitter who

is not satisfied with the Council’s decision may then appeal to the Environment Court.

For further information regarding this plan change or the process outlined above, please

contact Jocelyn Lewes on (03) 347 1809.

The closing date for submissions is 5pm on Monday 3 May 2021.

A SNAPSHOT OF OUR

LONG-TERM PLAN 2021–2031 CONSULTATION DOCUMENT

Selwyn’s future

in your hands

Kia ora

Selwyn is growing more quickly than almost any other

district in New Zealand – and managing that growth is

what our Long-Term Plan is all about. The proposals

in the plan represent what’s important to provide for

Selwyn’s growing population, while aiming to keep costs

at a reasonable level.

Our 10-year plan focuses on consolidating recent

investment in major projects, and looking after the district’s

assets for future generations.

Since our last plan we’ve successfully managed the

way our district has developed and grown. I’m pleased

that we’ve put in place much of the core infrastructure

our growing district needs – from essential water and

waste services and roading networks through to libraries,

community and recreation centres and services.

Looking ahead, we continue to plan for the future needs of

our residents, but also to make sure we’re looking after the

assets and infrastructure we already have.

We have some big decisions ahead of us – and if we are to

get this plan right we need your help. Take a look through

this snapshot, check out the information online, or read the

consultation document, and let us know what you think.

Our big decisions.

What’s proposed across our district?

On this map you’ll find the eight major proposals and some of the other projects we’re proposing

across a range of our activities and services. We’re seeking your feedback on these proposals to

help us make final decisions.

This is just a brief overview of our big decisions. For more information on these projects,

including the costs and impact on your rates, see the consultation document and supporting

information at www.selwyn.govt.nz/thisway2031.

BIG DECISION 7

BIG DECISION 8

Keeping our drinking water safe – we’re proposing to continue

our current approach to maintaining safe water supplies,

which meet community expectations, and comply with

expected new regulations.

Funding our drinking water supply – we’re proposing to change

the way we charge for the supply of drinking water, to meet

increasing costs and to help manage our high water demand. This

may be through options for increasing the volumetric (metered)

water rate and the annual fixed rate.

Wastewater system for Darfield and Kirwee – we’re proposing to

develop a reticulated wastewater system in these towns with a

connection to the Pines wastewater treatment plant in Rolleston.

The alternative is to retain the existing septic tank system.

Maintaining our roading network – we’re looking at how much we

should invest in road maintenance, with the option of adding extra

funding above what Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency supports,

so we can carry out additional work.

New roading and transport projects – we’re proposing an extensive

programme of roading upgrades and projects across the district,

with the option of varying the programme by starting some projects

earlier or later.

New community centre for Prebbleton – we’re proposing to build a

new community centre, with the option to defer the project outside

the 10-year plan.

Future of Leeston library and new community centre – following

consultation last year we’re proposing to build a new combined

library/service centre and community centre on Leeston Park,

with the alternative of upgrading the existing building or deferring

the project.

Future of Hororata community centre – we’re proposing to

construct a new Hororata Community Centre on the domain, with

the options of retaining or renovating the existing hall.

What will my rates look like?

Average annual rate rises of 4% to 5% are

forecast over the next 10 years.

Based on the proposals in our draft plan, we expect rate increases to remain steady over the next 10

years, at an average of around 4% to 5% each year.

The average proposed increase for the 2021/22 year (starting 1 July 2021) is 4.9%. This is within the

limit set by the Council that the average rate increase should not exceed 6% in any one year over the

next decade.

Note: these are averages and for individual ratepayers the actual change may be smaller or greater, depending on their location and the services provided.

Rating examples

The table below shows the proposed changes to annual rates for a sample of typical properties for the 2021/22 year

compared with the current year. It also shows the forecast annual changes for the 2022/23 and 2023/24 years, plus the

average annual percentage change over the coming 10 years. These are changes for typical properties and the changes for

individual properties will vary.

Building on a budget

Building your own home is one of the biggest investments of a lifetime and with

a few clever tips we show you how to make the most of what you can afford.

Get smart with your money to achieve

your dream home without compromising

on what’s really important.

Consider buying a large plot of land with

friends or family which you can split into

smaller lots. Many great

locations tend to cover

more ground, so get the

stunning harbour view

you dream of by sharing

the cost with someone you

don’t mind having as a

neighbour.

Opting for lowmaintenance

building

materials, like vinyl siding

and metal roofing saves in

the long run. Although

they may be more

expensive to install you

will save money on future

repairs, replacement or

repainting.

Using salvaged and recycled

materials and componentry

from the abundance of

demolition sites around the

city not only adds valuable

character to new builds, but

can save money, too.

For the safety and security

of your home, don’t skimp on structural

elements, doors and windows. Buy the

very best you can afford and, together

with your architect or builder, determine

other areas you could save on to allow for

a few luxuries.

It’s important not to waste valuable cash

on overbuilding. Look carefully at the

existing properties in the area and be

Deciding exactly

what you want

and then sticking with

it will ensure you stay

on budget, on time,

and all with

minimal stress.

aware that building a home that is bigger

and better than those of your neighbours

will not necessarily equate to a fair price

if and when it’s time to sell. instead, the

value of your build will be determined

by the lower-priced homes

around it.

The experience of a wellqualified

contractor is an

invaluable asset in any

building project. Not only

will you have recourse

should anything go wrong,

but their experience in

the industry means they

will have established

relationships with suppliers

and subcontractors, whom

they trust to deliver the best

workmanship possible.

Keep a close eye on

construction allowances as

your home is being built

to ensure you are getting

what you asked for and

what you paid for. if you

had initially agreed on

using a specific brand, for

example, then don’t settle

for less, unless you discuss

a cost adjustment with your

builder or contractor.

Many a building project has snowballed

out of control in the financial department

due to changes being made to the design

and materials once building is already

underway. Deciding exactly what you

want and then sticking with it will ensure

you stay on budget, within your expected

time frame, and all with minimal stress.

Mini makeover gives

living areas a lift

Don’t let heading into winter give you the

blues. Think of all the things you love about

the cooler seasons and give your home a

mini-makeover to make it the comfortable,

warm and welcoming home you desire.

Revamping your living and dining areas

will give your lived-in spaces a fresh new

feel. Unlike a renovation, a revamp (or

face lift) need not involve a huge financial

outlay. In fact it is an extremely budgetfriendly

way of giving your rooms a new

look as you can add and subtract pieces as

the pay packet allows.

Moving slowly over the next couple of

months is an advantage. If you don’t, after

all, like that bright pink cushion you had

planned to build your new look around,

you can change direction without having

spent too much money. Another advantage

of moving slowly to build your new look is

the time it allows you to hunt for just the

right pieces, or wait for the sales to offer

you bargains. Also have a look around your

home for items you could recover, paint or,

with a little tweaking, find new purpose for.

Start your facelift by deciding what sort of

look you’re going to aim for.

Browse magazines and the internet for

ideas, check paint colour charts for the

latest colour options. Visit furnishing stores

and take note of the different display areas -

how do they balance colour and texture?

Then find an item you would like to

build your new look around. This could

be a treasure you’ve had for a while or

something that you covet and have spotted

in a shop.

Your next step is to sit down with

pencil & paper & plan. List what items

can be changed and how, and what can’t.

Think colour, shades and tones and

complementary colours, think texture,

think pattern, think outside the square.

Think fabric, wood, plastic, old and new.

That comfy old chair doesn’t need to be

replaced.

Buy some furnishing fabric and recover

it (or have it recovered).What items have

other family members put aside because

they no longer need them but they’re ‘too

good to throw out’?

Once you’ve got some sort of plan

mapped out you can start work on creating

your new look.

Spend time browsing the shops to see

what is available in your chosen colour

- candles, photo frames, vases, pot plant

holders, wallpaper, fabric, large items and

small.

Buying a property at auction

If you’re keen on a property that’s going

to auction, preparation is everything. A

successful bid means you are immediately

committed to buy the property; you

cannot seek legal advice, arrange finance

or even get the property valued or

inspected when the auction is over.

That means you need to do all your

due diligence in advance of auction day.

Before the auction (usually after you’ve

viewed the property), the real estate agent

working for the seller should provide you

with a copy of the terms and Contract of

Sale, which sets out what chattels will be

included with the property. This document

will also tell you the amount of the deposit

to be paid by the successful bidder, and

when the balance of the payment must

be made. These documents should be

checked by your lawyer.

You should consider having the property

checked (preferably by a qualified

inspector who has professional indemnity

insurance and carries out their work

in accordance with the New Zealand

Property Inspection Standards and

obtain an up-to-date Land Information

Memorandum (LIM) from the local

council. It’s a good idea to get a valuation

of the property, especially as you are likely

to require one if you need a loan. Some

websites provide free estimated market

values that may be useful.

There’s a lot to take in at an auction and

it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. If you can,

go along to one as an observer to see how

the process works before you actually want

to buy. Remember that the auctioneer is

working for the seller and they want to get

the highest price possible for the property.

At an auction, the auctioneer will read the terms and

conditions of the sale aloud and announce if a reserve

price has been set. They must also state whether the seller

has reserved the right to bid during the auction. This is

called ‘vendor bidding’ and it is only allowed under strict

circumstances, such as when the property being auctioned

has a reserve price; when the reserve price has not yet

been met; and the auctioneer has made it clear that the bid

being made is a vendor bid. They must do this by saying,

‘this is a vendor bid’ rather than using any jargon.

Auctioneers sometimes use vendor bids as a way to start

off the bidding, or to move the bidding towards the reserve

price. Vendor bids can be made by the

auctioneer, or another person working on

behalf of the seller, such as a real estate

agent. An auctioneer can also use a preauction

offer to start the bidding.

The auction continues until there is only

one bidder left. At that stage, if the reserve

price is reached or beaten, the highest

bidder will be the successful buyer. If the

reserve price isn’t reached, the seller can

tell the auctioneer to stop the auction

without selling the property.

If the auction is stopped without a

sale, the highest bidder may have the

opportunity to negotiate with the seller

(via their agent) after the auction. If this

happens, the terms and conditions of

the auction no longer apply and you can

negotiate new ones.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Meisha’s

making interior

design magic

Five years ago, Meisha Campbell saw

potential in the fast-growing Selwyn

district. The property boom that’s seen

countless developments take form, and

more still in progress, meant plenty of

people needing interior design help.

But (thanks to reality television) there’s

a common misconception that interior

designers are scary and intimidating—and

that’s simply not true. Whether you’re

building a new home or just need some

help refreshing your current home, a

business like Design by Meisha can make

all the difference.

Removing clutter

is the first step

Meisha’s hot tip is to spend time

removing clutter. For every five items,

take away three for a more physically

and visually calm home. But if you’d

prefer Meisha to come in and wave her

magic wand, there are a few ways you

can work with her. The simplest option

that isn’t expensive but will still have

impact, is a consult for advice and to

re-jig your room. This process helps pull

your vision together, working with what

you already have. If you’re building a new

home, you might want a more thorough

collaboration that considers your personal

style, comfort, and functionality. Keeping

colours neutral and using removable items

for warmth and colour (that is, pillows,

furniture, art and other accessories) is a

good strategy.

Design for re-sale

Selwyn boasts many young property

buyers and common feedback is why

would they renovate an old house, when

building new is cheaper? It appears to be a

wider shift in how buyers are thinking and

explains why the skills of interior designers

are in demand. With plenty of equity,

they’re not staying in their homes for long

and are making careful, informed choices

about how to style their home so that it

appeals to the masses come time to put it

on the market again. Colours like Resene

Black White make up the bulk of paint

choices and spots of colour via furnishings

BEFORE

and decorating are used as landing spots

to give the eyes a break. Smart people are

always thinking ahead, and that can pay

off if you’re thinking of selling in a few

years.

Interior design made easy

Design by Meisha carefully vets home

build companies. Morals must align and

end products are something to be proud

of; Meisha currently works alongside

builders like DB Homes and Fortified

homes, and directly with clients who need

help. Services are available to everyone

in Selwyn with options suitable for all

budgets. Plus, just by working with Meisha

you unlock discounts at Resene. You can

find Design by Meisha on Facebook and

Instagram using @designbymeisha.
