Still fighting fires after

50 years – ‘it’s not about me’

• By Susan Sandys

MANY CALL-OUTS for

small-town fire brigades

are to assist friends and

acquaintances, says Coalgate

Volunteer Fire Brigade chief

Phillip Shaw.

“There’s a lot of call-outs that

are usually memorable for the

wrong reasons,” Shaw said.

Shaw has been recognised for

his service to the brigade, being

awarded the double gold star

recognising 50 years service, at

an awards evening last month.

He joined at the age of

just 19, when he was a selfemployed

shearing contractor.

Residents

to get

police

tips on

crime

• By Susan Sandys

RESIDENTS WILL be learning

how to improve their vehicle and

home security as police launch a

campaign on crime prevention.

Police will have a purpose-built

crime prevention vehicle outside

supermarkets at Lincoln and

Rolleston next week, offering

advice to residents.

Senior Sergeant Dean Harker

said while crime rates in the district

were low, residents could do

better when it came to improving

their own security.

The rate of car break-ins in the

district was about one every two

days, at the most, he said.

“The focus will be on home and

vehicle security, as this is still an

area where our own security can

be improved,” Harker said.

The vehicle would be at New

World Lincoln on Wednesday

3-6pm, Countdown Rolleston

on Thursday 3.30-6pm, and

New World Rolleston on Friday

11.30am-1.30pm.

THAT’S A pretty good

innings from Coalgate fire

chief Phillip Shaw on our

front page today.

Shaw, 70, has been

recognised for 50 years

service with the volunteer

brigade. Retirement is

not even on the horizon, he

says.

Volunteer firefighters are

vital in any small community,

and those in the Selwyn

district are among New

Zealand’s finest.

They fight major out-ofcontrol

scrub fires to small

domestic blazes, attend

vehicle crashes from the

horrific to the minor and are

often the first responders to a

medical incident.

In a small community

like the Coalgate area the

volunteers are likely to know

the victims of the call-outs

they attend. Mentally that

can be very tough.

The community needs

more people like Phillip

Shaw.

HISTORY BUFFS are lobbying

the district council for more

support, to the tune of up to $2

million. They want the council

to fund heritage preservation

through a district-wide rate.

Selwyn Heritage and Historical

Network represents the 16

groups in the district.

Chairman Grant Clausen

said members worked countless

hours to collect and catalogue

the images and stories of their

areas, as well as maintain and

improve heritage buildings.

The current level of council’s

commitment, encompassing

annual grants and contestable

funding streams, was not enough

to undertake larger projects outside

of day-to-day costs.

“Fundraising sausage sizzles

and raffles will not raise the

money required to fulfil this

task,” Clausen said.

“Many volunteers are getting

older, the meaningful stuff is going

to get lost.”

Members wanted buildings

and display areas made fitfor-purpose

to properly house

historical items. They also

wanted to develop a heritage trail

throughout the district, and have

an appointed council staff member

to liaise with groups and

promote the district’s history.

Big-ticket items requiring

funding included about $500,000

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

More heritage funding called for

for turning a building at the Ellesmere

Heritage Park into a museum,

complementing a restored

1870s cottage and the 1870s

Southbridge Gaol at the site.

Others included turning the

Hororata Hall into a historical

society, shifting the nationallyrenowned

Burnham Military

Museum from the military

camp to Rolleston, developing

a woolshed on the 19th century

Terrace Station at Hororata into

an educational and display space,

and securing the future of the

1959 Arthur’s Pass National Park

visitor centre.

Clausen urged members of the

public to submit to the long-term

plan to support increasing heritage

funding. The consultative

document released last month

had not included any funding

for this, in spite of the network

lobbying for it.

Council group manager community

services and facilities

Denise Kidd said the council supports

heritage through the Selwyn

Heritage Fund, which provided up

to $73,000 a year for specific heritage

protection projects.

“On top of this, the council

provides funding to heritage

groups through the Selwyn

Community Grants Fund for

various events and projects. The

council’s Creative Communities

Fund has also funded heritagerelated

projects,” Kidd said.

Additionally, the council

developed and enforced rules for

the protection of buildings and

areas of historical significance

under the District Plan.

Council staff had met with

network members last month and

outlined the council’s existing

plans and projects related to heritage

within existing funding budgets.

And prior to this, the council

had encouraged heritage groups to

consider what proposals they wold

submit to the long term plan.

In Brief

TREE TRIMMER BLAZE

Kirwee Volunteer Fire Brigade

members responded to a fire in

a tree topper on Monday

morning last week. Chief Stuart

Jones said the machine was

extensively damaged in the

blaze, which was caused by a

mechanical fault in the engine.

The topper was in operation at

the time, trimming a hedge along

Homebush Rd. The brigade had

another call-out on Wednesday

about 6pm. A power transformer

on Highfield Rd had caught fire,

setting alight a small area of

vegetation underneath.

LONG TERM PLAN

Residents can find out more

about the district council’s

Long Term Plan 2021-2031

consultation document this

week and next week at drop-in

sessions. Sessions are planned

for 3-6pm tomorrow at Darfield

Library community room, and

3-6pm, April 13, at Rolleston

Library, and 3-6pm, April 15,

Lincoln Library.

Submissions on the 10-year

planning documnet This Way…

2031 close 5pm, April 30.

The council is encouraging

residents, ratepayers and

stakeholders to make sure they

have their say. The average

proposed rates increase for the

2021-2022 year (starting July 1)

is 4.9 per cent, which is a total of

$138, or $2.65 per week.

Many call-outs are to acquaintances

• From page 1

Today aged 70 and retired,

Shaw remembers vividly the reason

behind wanting to become a

firefighter. It’s the same reason he

plans to continue in the brigade

today.

“You just do your things for

your community. It’s not about

me, it’s about the brigade,” Shaw

said.

He has lived in Coalgate most

of his life, attending Glentunnel

School and Darfield High School.

He said being a firefighter for

a small town brigade meant that

most call-outs were to incidents

that affected friends and acquaintances.

“The chances are very high if

we get a call to an MVA (motor

vehicle accident), it’s someone we

will know.

“We have known people who

have been deceased and that’s

pretty hard.”

The same was true for calls to

medical situations. Firefighters

sometimes faced trying to resuscitate

a patient, only to lose them.

“I can think of three or four

just sitting here now, people I

know quite well you are performing

CPR on.”

Shaw said he always looked

out for fellow members of the

brigade, wanting to ensure they

were doing okay as they coped

with such trauma. For himself,

he found a quiet beer and debrief

back at the station with other

firefighters helped.

He said discussions following

any such event were valuable

at a professional level as well,

allowing firefighters to look at

ways they could improve their

response at similar call-outs in

future.

Memorable call-outs included

house fires, as well as a fire at the

Glentunnel garage, and the arson

of the Glentunnel Hall in 2003.

News reports of the latter incident

describe fire crews bringing

the blaze under control within

15 minutes after arriving to find

the entire building engulfed in

flames.

Shaw said call-outs drew a response

from Coalgate firefighters

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Station vary each year from about 25 to more than 40.

which encompassed their wider

roles as community members.

“Members if possible rally

around, give a hand, clean up

afterwards. We are not just there

to do our job and go home, they

will be around there with a digger

and a tractor,” Shaw said.

Shaw said the brigade’s 19

firefighters, comprising 18

men and one woman, were

enthusiastic and contributed

much to the brigade in terms

of their expertise and training.

The number of brigade call-outs

each year varied from about 25 to

more than 40.

“We have a really good group

who can turn out very, very

quickly, and that’s what it’s

about,” he said.

Police rely heavily on

community patrols

• From page 1

“We will be looking

at visiting other towns

in the district in the

next few months,”

Harker said.

Harker said he had

recently attended a

meeting with Selwyn

Community Patrol,

where he had been

pleased to see several

new volunteers had

signed up. The Selwyn patrol

and Malvern Community Patrol

acted as the “eyes and ears” of

police, reporting any unusual

activity.

He urged anyone interested to

join, as both groups sought new

members.

“Police heavily rely on community

patrols throughout New

Zealand, and our local patrols

do a fantastic job,” Harker said.

Selwyn patrol chairman Errol

Wood said the recent intake of

volunteers had been successful.

The organisation had about 50

members, each undertaking

about one shift per month.

He hoped to add more

members, particularly those

who did not mind working past

midnight.

He said many of the current

members were retirees, who

liked to finish their shifts about

11pm, meaning the patrol was

often not operating at the same

time criminals were active.

Wood had been a resident of

Lincoln for 38 years, and in that

time there had been an increase

in petty crime. Extending the

hours the patrol operated would

help combat this increase.

“We would probably observe

more of that behaviour,” Wood

said.

The patrol has the use of a

modern car marked with community

patrol signage, made

possible with funding from local

charities and businesses. The

district’s growing population

would most likely necessitate

adding a second vehicle in future,

he said.

The patrol covers Lincoln,

Prebbleton, Rolleston, West

Melton and other towns.

“IT’S GOING to be a full house.”

That is the message from Selwyn Sounds

promoter David Parlane ahead of the event

on Saturday.

International travel restrictions mean

that this year the event is “keeping it Kiwi,”

said Parlane.

The expected crowd of about 10,000 will

be treated to an all New Zealand lineup

featuring Stan Walker, Jordan Luck Band,

Zed, Elemeno P, Annie Crummer, The

Chills, Hello Sailor, Lady Killers and Automatic

80s.

Selwyn Sounds was scheduled for

last month, but was delayed due to the

Covid-19 alert level rise.

Parlane said holding it this month will

add a new feel, as it will be the first time

Lincoln Domain transcends into full darkness

during the event.

The venue will be illuminated by an impressive

lighting system, which will bring a

whole new excitement to the performances

filled with classic Kiwi hits.

Said Parlane: “The last three acts of the

evening at that time will be Zed, Jordan

Luck [Band] and Stan Walker. Stan puts on

a pretty spectacular stage show, especially

with his lighting, and so does Jordan Luck,

who really wants to bring it to Selwyn.”

Parlane is excited for every artist who

is performing, but said Jordan Luck

Band and Hello Sailor will be personal

highlights.

“I’m particularly looking forward to

9.30am – express pass gates

open

10am – general admission

gates open

10.55am – Hello Sailor

12.05pm – The Chills

1.15pm – Lady Killers and

4.30pm – Zed

7.30pm - Stan Walker

Jordan Luck [Band]. His show this year

around the country has been exceptional

. . . they [the band] said they haven’t

peaked yet, they’re peaking for Selwyn

Sounds.

“Hearing Gutter Black [by Hello Sailor]

going across Lincoln Park is going to be a

pretty special moment.”

Parlane said Selwyn Sounds staff have

put together a great event in spite of the

challenges Covid-19 has posed.

He said the event has recently secured

its future and has been granted resource

consent to run for the next 11 years.

There are still a few tickets left for Saturday’s

event and Parlane urged people not

to miss out.

THE DISTRICT council is

stepping into the future as it

plans to add two electric vehicles

to its fleet by the end of the year.

It is the start of leaving behind

fuel-powered technology for the

council as it meets its requirements

under the Zero Carbon

Amendment Act.

The council

currently has 61

cars, including two

hybrid vehicles. Its

fleet will remain the

same size, as the

two electric vehicles

will be replacements.

It also has four more

hybrid vehicles on order, also

replacement vehicles, for the

coming five months.

The council passed a resolution

at its meeting last week to add the

two electric vehicles.

Group manager property

Douglas Marshall said the council

was committed to reducing its

own carbon footprint as part of

its climate change policy.

“When we had our carbon

footprint mapped last year,

transport, including contractor

transport, was identified as the

NEWS 7

More electric

vehicles to be added

to council fleet

Douglas

Marshall

biggest area of council emissions,”

Marshall said.

“Reducing our emissions is

part of our determination to lead

the change, to be the best stewards

we can be for Selwyn. Caring

for the district’s environment

and people, and making as many

of our cars as is feasible electric,

is one step we can take to doing

this,” he said.

“At this stage we’re starting

with two electric vehicles. It’s

inevitable with the changing

technology for cars and our

requirements under the Zero

Carbon Amendment Act we will

need to convert more of our fleet

to electric, but we’re only at the

start of that process.”

The council was still confirming

the costs for the initial electric

vehicles and the set-up costs.

In a report before council

at the meeting, Marshall said

staff would be considering what

charging systems would need to

be in place at either council sites

or at individual staff properties.

As well as the installation of

charging stations, extension of

the vehicle compound on the

northern end of the headquarters’

building would be required.

Geography whizz Leah gets to

compete against best in the world

• By Susan Sandys

WHEN IT comes to geography,

Darfield High School student

Leah Hamilton-Cross is one of

the best in the country.

In August, the 17-year-old,

who lives in Hororata, will get

her chance to compete against

other top students from across

the globe, at the International

Geography Olympiad 2021.

The Olympiad is an annual

competition for 16 to 19-year-old

geography students, chosen to

represent their countries from

thousands who participate in

their own national geography

olympiads.

After being cancelled last year

with Covid-19 border closures, it

was planned this year for Istanbul,

Turkey.

However, organisers recently

decided the August event will

be held online instead due to

the continuing Covid-19 uncertainty.

The New Zealand team of

four will compete together from

Wellington.

Leah said while she had

travelled to many places around

the world with her family, she

had never been to Turkey. After

researching the country, she had

been keen to go there.

However, it had been no

surprise when the event moved

online. She remained just as

excited about representing her

country and meeting up with her

teammates.

Leah believed that she and her

fellow three competitors had a

chance of winning, which would

see New Zealand named the

champion of the prestigious and

highly-competitive event.

“It’s a lot of pressure representing

New Zealand, and I hope we

will do well,” the school prefect

said.

“I think it’s such a great opportunity,

and I’m excited for where

it is going to take me,” she said.

She had been “super excited”

when she found out she had

come through the gruelling selection

process, which included

writing an essay and an interview,

to be named in the top four

in the country.

Her career goal is to become

a scientist or researcher in the

fields of environmental management

or geography.

The iGeo will be a written test,

a multimedia test and substantial

fieldwork requiring observation,

leading to cartographic

representation and geographical

analysis. The programme also

includes poster presentations by

teams.

Leah said she is looking forward

to being asked all sorts of

questions around topics such as

climate change, ocean processes,

shore dynamics, earthquakes,

the hydraulic cycle and society

development.

“I love geography,

it’s

my favourite

subject,” she

said.

Leah is

grateful to the

community for

helping her get

to the Olympiad.

Malvern Lions Club

contributed $400 and

Malvern Community

Board put in $500

from the Malvern Ward

Discretionary Fund.

TOP STUDENT: Leah

Hamilton-Cross will

compete in the

International Geography

Olympiad in August.

NEWS

Area response manager

Senior Sergeant Dean

Harker talks about police

activity in the district

THIS MONTH we will focus

on hunting during the roar, and

poaching.

As most country will be aware

the hunting period known as

the roar is well underway and

most hunters will be busy trying

to secure a trophy stag over the

next few weeks.

Always remember alcohol and

firearms do not mix, only consume

alcohol once your hunting

is over for the day and your

firearms are locked away.

Make sure you have advised

family or friends about your

hunting intentions including

routes and expected return date

and times. If possible, take a

PLB. If you don’t have one, a

number of hunting stores and

sporting good shops sometimes

hire them out.

The most important thing

is to always follow The Seven

Firearms Safety Rules:

• Rule 1: Treat every firearm as

loaded.

• Rule 2: Always point firearms

in a safe direction.

• Rule 3: Load a firearm only

when ready to fire.

• Rule 4: Identify your target

beyond all doubt.

• Rule 5: Check your firing

zone.

• Rule 6: Store firearms and

ammunition safely.

• Rule 7: Avoid both alcohol

and drugs when handling firearms.

Poaching and the police

Some local farmers may

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Follow the safety rules when handling firearms

Dean Harker

Selwyn Police

experience poaching over the

next month so here is a friendly

reminder.

Police have wide legislative

powers available to them to

counter this type of offending.

A range of powers are found

in the Wild Animal Control Act

1977 which controls the spread

of harmful wild animals and,

as part of this, legislates against

illegal hunting.

Under the act it is an offence

to hunt, kill or possess wild animals

without the express authority

of the owner or occupier of

the relevant land. The maximum

fine is up to $100,000 plus two

years imprisonment.

Charges can also be brought

under the Forest and Rural Fire

Regulations 2005 for being in

an exotic forest without the required

permit. An exotic forest is

defined as one made up solely or

mainly of non-indigenous trees.

Offenders thinking about

committing crime in our area

should also be warned that any

hunting relates to items including

firearms, knives, dogs, GPS

units and vehicles may be seized

and forfeited.

Poaching can be the catalyst for

other crimes, such as damaging

machinery and the theft of fuel.

Police will also be alert to any

attempts to steal stock.

Preventing crime

Security options for farmers

to consider include installing

CCTV or wireless alert system

which can activate an alarm

in your house to alert you that

someone is in your shed by

alarm or light sensors.

These devices are highly effective

and can even work in areas

across some distance, where

there is no cell coverage.

There are also satellite GPS

devices available that can be

installed covertly on items such as

quad bikes and other machinery

which can be tracked if they get

stolen. Satellite devices also do

not require cell coverage to track.

Crime prevention

signage

Two crime prevention signs are

available to help deter unlawful

hunters and trespassers.

Both signs can be bought

through Neighbourhood Support

as part of a joint initiative

with police.

• Sign 1 – Hunters be Aware

• Sign 2 – Camera Operating

Both signs are printed on 4mm

white aluminium composite

material with a UV resistant

anti-graffiti laminate. Sign size is

an A3 – 297mm W x 420mm H.

The estimated lifespan for

these signs is 15 years.

Both signs have six holes for

easy installation. Price – $16.30

excluding GST.

To place an order, contact

Kelsey@neighbourhoodsupport.

CHARITIES are benefiting

to the tune of more than

$200,000 after the success

of a charity house project

in Rolleston.

The new Launch

Foundation and Freedom

Built home construction

company combined their

efforts on the project, while

subcontractors contributed

by donating labour and

materials.

The subcontractors were

recently treated to a viewing

of the recently-sold

house, on Hepburn Pl in

Goulds subdivision.

Driver of the initiative

and Launch Foundation

trustee Cole Askew said

the foundation wanted

to help people access the

resources they needed to

grow and develop.

“I had a great upbringing

as a child, which allowed

me to pursue my passions,

but not everyone is that

fortunate,” Askew said.

Grant recipients included

the Graeme Dingle

Foundation, which runs

programmes to build

resilience and life schools

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

in pupils at decile 1 to 3

schools, Pillars, which

provides wrap-around

services for families and

whanau of prisoners, and

Aviva, which provides

specialist services to

support children and

adults to live a life free

from family and sexual

violence.

Karen Askew of Freedom

Built said the company

and the foundation

were already seeking

offers for any qualified

subcontractors who would

like to contribute products

or services for a second

charity build.

She would like to

see the charity-build

model replicated by

other companies as new

subdivisions opened.

“The Rolleston

community has watched

and engaged with

the various donating

contractors, who have been

able to strengthen their

brand recognition (through

signs on fences, and posts

on social media),” Askew

said.

This way…

Our map for the next 10 years

Over the next few weeks we'll be highlighting eight big decisions

we need your help with as part of the Long-Term Plan consultation.

BIG DECISION 4

Maintaining our roads (2021–31)

Every year people travel over 520 million kilometres on our roads. In the

past 10 years usage has increased over five percent each year.

OUR PREFERRED OPTION

Sustainability at heart

of Te Ara Ātea

The anchor of the new Rolleston Town Centre has been designed with sustainability at its core.

Te Ara Ātea – which will house the Rolleston Library, along with other community spaces and

experiences – is on track to open in November. It has an innovative design to help the building be

sustainable and provide a great experience for people.

Wherever possible locally sourced sustainable materials have been used in the construction and

all the timber in the building has been sustainably sourced.

It has also been innovatively designed to reduce energy use in lighting, heating and cooling.

For heating and cooling the building has been highly insulated and designed to maximise the use

of the natural conditions, along with a smart low-energy heating system with sensors that respond

to the temperature of the building to avoid unnecessary energy use.

The lighting combines the use of the large windows and low-energy, long-life LED lights placed to

use the minimum number of lights while still providing ample brightness.

These systems will be controlled by a high-tech building management system, using energy

metres and other sensors to analyse what parts of the building are in use, light levels,

temperature, humidity, energy consumption and weather and adjust settings such as shading,

lighting, heating and cooling. It will also identify maintenance issues earlier, reducing energy use,

maintenance costs and time when things are offline or services are unavailable.

The building has also been designed to be flexible in the way it can be used, with the layout able

to change to meet a wide variety of different activities and functions into the future, reducing the

need to build further buildings.

Sitting at the Tennyson Street entrance to the new town centre, the northern end of Te Ara Ātea

will be surrounded by kai gardens and the sensory experience with its many gardens and trees.

It is part of a design that intends to have well vegetated thresholds at each entrance to the town

centre to ensure a green path into the area.

Masterclass offered on getting great events going

Getting great events running in Selwyn is the focus of two Council workshops in coming months,

starting next week.

The Council is running an Event Permitting Masterclass on Tuesday 13 April to help event organisers

with the ins and outs of permits, what you might need and why.

The workshop will give an overview on the process for applying for permits to run an event in Selwyn and

what is needed for successful permit applications, and Council staff will be available to answer questions.

It is the first of two workshops from the Council in April and May to support and encourage events in

Selwyn, Council Events and Funding Coordinator Cristene Trenuela-Chan says.

“It’s to help encourage events and good events for Selwyn. The permitting masterclass helps us take

the scary component out of setting up at event. It’s helping people understand both what permits they

need to run an event and why they need them. It also lets you meet the people involved and helps us to

support you in your event.”

It will be followed by the Get Set Go workshop at the end of May for people who have an idea for an

event and want to learn about how to get started with the basics of planning and running it.

“We know there are people out there with great ideas that can bring some fun, build community, and be

a part of making Selwyn a good place to live. We want to encourage that and help people run the best

event possible for everyone coming along.”

ON THE

ROADS

On the Roads

Pavement repairs are taking place on Days Road between Ellesmere Junction Road and

Collins Road, and on Wards Road between Kerrs Road and Sandy Knowles Road. Traffic

management is in place for these works.

Increase general rate-funded maintenance above the level funded

by NZTA

This option means a higher level of funding by ratepayers. This would

let us do additional work to lower the risk of our roads deteriorating

further and needing even more costly repairs at a later stage.

Cost

$1 million per year additional

Impact on rates

Rates would increase based on property’s value. For a property with

capital value of $550,000 this is estimated at $30 a year.

OTHER OPTION Fund maintenance at the level supported by NZTA

Under this option no additional maintenance funding would be

provided above what NZTA provides. This option would have no

additional cost or impact on rates or debt.

BIG DECISION 3

Developing a new wastewater system in Darfield and

Kirwee (2021–2026)

Following consultation in 2019 and 2020, we’ve agreed to develop

a reticulated scheme in Darfield and Kirwee. We are now asking for

feedback on our proposals for how it is to be developed and funded.

OUR PREFERRED OPTION

Connect to the Pines wastewater treatment plant in Rolleston

This would provide connections for central Darfield and growth

areas of Darfield and Kirwee, and capacity for the existing

residential properties over time. This option provides the best

environmental and public health benefits, and will better provide for

ongoing population growth.

Cost

$38 million (Note: This will initially be funded by borrowing and by a

one-off Government stimulus grant of $10 million – which reduces

the cost per house by about $5,000.)

Impact on rates

A. For existing properties

A share of the cost of the capital

works, plus connection to the

treatment plant

Property owner’s own cost

to connect their property to

the scheme.

Approximately $17,360 in

2025/26 (loan rate of $751

per year)

Readers respond to

last week’s Selwyn

Times article about

zoning plan changes

I see that a developer

wishes to develop a subdivision

outside what is

known as the Rolleston

Zone and opposite the

current sewage plant and

rubbish centre.

I will be willing to bet

that in their submission,

there will be the usual

promises to ensure that

BACKYARD CRITTERS

the development will

not be affected by those

established facilities and

all remedial measures will

be in place.

Then in the future when

people start to complain,

the council will be asked

to move and/or provide

expensive remedial measures

to ensure that the

now residents can have

the trouble-free lifestyle

that the developers had

promised.

Time to say no and tell

the developers to move

on. Develop what is inside

the proposed sequential

development scheme as set

out. – Gary Doyle

How can they possibly

be considering a new

subdivision in Lincoln of

2500 new houses when

there is not enough water

currently to go around?

I think new builds

should be required to have

a rainwater collection

tank, this would make

a huge difference to

demand. – Anna Leslie

THE COTTON tipworm

moth (crocidosema

first recorded in New

Zealand around the 1980s,

but the species now seems

well dispersed around the

country.

It is also found in Europe,

the US, North America,

Australia, India and South

Africa.

The forewing length

of the moth varies from

5.3mm to 8.5mm, and

colours vary with sex.

Males are dark brown

to black with an obvious

white dorsal patch, whereas

females are lighter brown

to tan with a dark basal

patch.

The larvae feed on a large

range of species including

several types of mallow,

cotton, pumpkin, okra,

eucalyptus, wheat, corn,

hollyhock and hawthorn.

Females lay eggs singly on

both upper and lower leaf

surfaces, laterals and buds.

Smaller larvae forage

on leaves under webbing.

Fully-grown larvae can

reach 10mm long and vary

greatly from whitish to

Robertson lifts lid on coaching future

• By Christopher Reive

CRUSADERS COACH Scott

Robertson has made it clear

where he stands in discussions

around re-signing with New

Zealand Rugby, amid talk of

other nations having him in

their sights.

Robertson, who is open about

his ambitions to coach at the

highest level, has been linked to

several coaching roles overseas,

most recently as a potential

successor to Eddie Jones at the

helm of the English squad.

The 46-year-old is off contract

with NZR and the end of the

year and, in discussions with

the organisation about the

future, Robertson and his agent

Warren Alcock wanted some

answers around both career

opportunities as well as whether

or not the Silver Lake deal will

go ahead.

“The next couple of days is

pretty big around the Silver Lake

deal. We are getting close, but

the Silver Lake deal is a pretty

important part of re-signing,”

Robertson said on Wednesday.

“Like I’ve said before, with

the agent, he’s a pretty patient

type, it’s a long game for him just

around what’s happening with

New Zealand Rugby, just making

sure the timing is right.”

NZR is in the process of

UNCERTAIN: Scott Robertson has been linked to coaching roles overseas. PHOTO: GETTY

working towards a $465m deal

with the American technology

investment company that

would see them sell a 15 per

cent stake in their commercial

rights to Silver Lake. While the

New Zealand Rugby Players’

Association has come out in

opposition of the sale, NZR chief

executive Mark Robinson was

confident a “transformational”

deal would get the backing of key

stakeholders.

When pressed on exactly

why the Silver Lake deal added

to calculations, Robertson

said: “Just see what it [the deal]

means, if it is or isn’t [accepted],

and what does it look like on

the side of that with the next All

Blacks role coming up?”

Although Robertson missed

out on the All Blacks head

coaching role in late 2019 to Ian

Foster, many have tipped him as

an All Blacks coach of the future.

However, now in his fifth year as

the head coach of Crusaders and

with four Super Rugby titles in

as many campaigns at the helm

of the team, Robertson is wary of

making the right decision for his

family and his career.

“It’s pretty clear; if I sign a

couple more years, I’ll have done

the Crusaders for seven years –

which I love doing – but what

does it mean for the next step

after that? How does that line up

around the 2023 World Cup if

this coaching group stays on? So,

there’s a lot of things going on; a

lot of answers to come back.

“I’ve been really patient here.

I’ve been coming down to Rugby

Park since 2008 in some role as a

coach. We’ve got a great lifestyle,

but I’m also ambitious career

coach.

“So, for me to have the

opportunity, if it’s here or

elsewhere, you always keep

looking at those opportunities.”

Robertson has already received

a glowing reference from Sir

Clive Woodward in relation to

the top job in England, should it

become available.

The former English captain

told Newstalk ZB’s Martin

Devlin that he would love to play

for Robertson.

“This guy Robertson I don’t

know, but crikey I just get a

really good feeling about him,”

he said.

“Clearly, he’s a winner, he’s

successful, he’s very good with

people. Would I like to play for

him? Yes, without even knowing

him, just from seeing the way his

team plays.

“That would be really

interesting on so many fronts.”

Reminders of Targeted

Stream Augmentation aims

A passionate ecologist gave members

of the Selwyn Waihora Water Zone

Committee a reminder of their role

in overseeing the Targeted Stream

Augmentation Project.

Environment Canterbury’s Brett

Painter described the story of the

Targeted Stream Augmentation Project

including the project’s connection to the

collaborative nature of the Canterbury

Water Management Strategy and the role

of the zone committee.

Dr Painter described how the first

Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee were

clear in their Zone Implementation

Programme Addendum (ZIPA) and

in using managed aquifer recharge or

targeted stream augmentation to help

increase base flows in lowland streams.

He said that committee “was also

clear in the view that projects must

be for the wider good”. The Zone

Implementation Plan Amendment (ZIPA)

recommendation for regional planning

was written to ensure that these options

would be possible in the future, he said.

Dr Painter described the different

investigations and trials that had started

and what their environmental goals have

been. Zone committee minutes say it was

“agreed Dr Painter would bring more

information to the committee regarding

monitoring being undertaken, to ensure

there were no adverse effects from the

project”.

The committee “briefly discussed their

governance role with the project”. Dr

Painter explained that the committee’s

role over time has been to explore the

ideas of managed aquifer recharge and

targeted stream augmentation, write the

ZIPA to enable trials of these types of

projects, receive updates and guide the

project during construction phase and

sign off the governance group regular

reports.

The committee was also charged

with receiving final technical reports,

attending blessing or opening ceremonies,

joining planting days and communicating

the project to the public

In a 2018 paper, Protection of

groundwater dependent ecosystems in

Canterbury, New Zealand: the Targeted

Stream Augmentation Project, Dr Painter

said the region’s native aquatic species

habitat has significantly declined over the

last century, mainly because of land use

change and climatic influences.

In Selwyn Waihora, “the semi-arid

climate, significant demand for irrigation

water and the up-gradient aquifer

pressure provided by a coastal lake

provide significant aquifer management

challenges in this zone.” In response, the

local CWMS committee recommended

that managed aquifer recharge trials

to improve groundwater dependent

ecosystems start in a highly targeted

manner before gradually increasing the

distance from recharge site to the target

spring/s.

A highly targeted pilot trial showed

that the flow, temperature and nutrient

concentration benefits for the target

surface ecosystem. Lessons learned to

that point include the importance of

keeping engagement processes ahead of

technical assessments. High-level scoping

assessments should also be done before

the start of detailed investigations and

pilot projects, Dr Painter wrote.

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

Water management

ties grow stronger

A Selwyn water management group has

signed up to an urban water charter.

Community Waterways Partnership is

an agreement to improve the ecological

health, biodiversity, and recreational value

Christchurch’s waterways.

In notes to the charter announcement,

Environment Canterbury says urban

water quality varies considerably across

and within catchments and monitoring

identifies the areas that need to be

improved.

“Municipal stormwater treatment

infrastructure alone will not address this

water quality problem, especially in the

older part of the city where it is lacking.

Therefore, it also needs communities

to actively prevent pollution in the

first place. Achieving this will require

communities to be aware of both the

issues and the actions that they can

undertake.”

Environment Canterbury Chair Jenny

Hughey said the charter complimented

work already being done by councils and

community groups. “This partnership will

take it to the next level and is a significant

step towards improving water quality. We

are looking forward to creating a strong

partnership between community groups,

businesses, researchers, and local and

central government,” she said.

A signing event for the charter was

attended by a variety of community

participants as well as signatories

from Christchurch West Melton Water

Zone Committee, Christchurch City

Council, University of Canterbury,

the Department of Conservation, and

numerous community groups, schools

and businesses.

Kevin Brown, chair of the Christchurch

West Melton Water Zone Committee,

said “it’s a no-brainer that we need to give

them some serious attention” and he was

encouraged by charter members’ show of

commitment and collaboration.

“Sharing ideas and collaborating

is a key aspect of the Charter and

the Christchurch West Melton Zone

Committee is pleased to be able to provide

a platform where groups with an interest

in water management can have their

voices heard. By encouraging awareness,

and long-term behaviour change, I think

some really positive outcomes can come

from this,” he said.

In October 2018 the Christchurch West

Melton Zone Committee organised a

workshop with representatives of local

government including the city council,

Ngāi Tahu, universities and community

groups. The workshop was aimed at

creating a community agreement to

improve urban stormwater and waterway

health in Christchurch. The meeting gave

impetus to the Community Waterways

Partnership Charter.

The regional council expects the charter

to gain momentum as more projects

are identified and more groups and

organisations have the chance to sign up

to the partnership.

The work of the Christchurch West

Melton Water Zone Committee is tied

to the establishment of the Canterbury

Water Management Strategy (CWMS) in

2009. The CWMS sets a framework for

a collaborative approach to managing

freshwater in Canterbury and the

Christchurch West Melton Water Zone

Committee and Banks Peninsula Zone

Committee implement the CWMS

strategy in the city area.

GARDENING

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Perfect time to pop in some colour

• By Henri Ham

AUTUMN IS the perfect time to

pop some pretty colour into your

garden.

Flowers like polyanthus,

primula and viola can easily revitalise

a weary garden, and thrive in

the cooler months. And planting

them now, before the temperature

drops, gives them time to really

get established, bringing you a

prolonged blooming season.

Polyanthus, primula and viola

are easy to grow and flourish in

garden beds, as borders, or in

pots. Polyanthus and voila are

petite blooms (about 10-15cm

high), while primula has a bit

more height (30cm) – ideal for

planting in behind smaller plants,

for a fuller garden effect.

Primula comes in several

shades of pink, red, white and

mixed. It’s a dainty flower, and

when picked makes a cute winter

posy arrangement for your

kitchen. Primula also copes well

growing in the shade.

If you’re not into the primula

pinks, violas have a bolder look

and come in range of blues, yellows

and oranges. To really make

these colours pop, when planting

try thinking about your complementary

colours – if you’ve got a

terracotta orange pot, try planting

blue blooms. Alternatively, if

your pot (or house colour) is blue,

VIVID: Primula lavender is a dainty flower, also available in many other colours. Polanthus

look pretty in a pot on a table.

try the citrus or orange violas,

to really make them stand out.

Purple and yellow flowers will

also complement each other, and

really stand out in a pot together.

Polyanthus has a smaller bloom

(framed by its leaves) appearance.

There are blue, red, pink, white

and yellow polyanthus – so you’re

bound to find something you like.

They look pretty in a pot on a

table, and you’ll often see polyanthus

in perfectly planted borders

at public gardens.

When getting ready to plant

your seedlings, choose a spot that

receives some sun, and has good

drainage. If your garden is looking

a bit tired after summer, turn

over the soil, and dig through

some organic compost or fertiliser.

Once this is done, dig holes for

your flowers, 10-20cm apart. You

want the holes to be large enough

so the roots of the seedlings don’t

get squashed. Place the seedlings

in, and press soil firmly down

around it.

Your plants will benefit from a

good initial watering, and adding

a layer of mulch around them.

This will help retain moisture,

soften the frost, and repel the

weeds.

If you’ve flower seedlings left

over, an old favourite of mine is

to pack them into a low hanging

basket. Pop your primula, polyanthus

or violas in, and add some

lobelia to really soften the sides.

And, as we leave summer behind,

I also like that baskets aren’t so

labour intensive with minimal

watering required.

In six to eight weeks, you’ll start

to see colour popping through,

all set for your coming cooler

months. And remember – as with

most flowers – to pick the off the

deadheads to encourage more to

bloom.

THE COOLER temperatures of

autumn have arrived, and so too

has the beautiful colourful display

of leaves on deciduous trees.

It’s another busy month in the

garden as we prepare our gardens

for the colder winter months.

Planting winter vege

seedlings

April is the favoured month for

planting winter vegetable seedlings.

Add fresh compost to the

vege plot before planting broad

beans, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower,

lettuce, onions, peas, radish,

spinach, swedes and turnips.

It’s a good idea to stagger your

plantings (called succession planting)

every two to three weeks so

you have a continuous harvest

throughout winter.

If temperatures are dropping at

night, put jars or plastic bottles

over seedlings to protect them

against early frosts – this also

helps keep snails and slugs at bay.

Remember to remove any covers

in the morning.

Growing winter veges in

containers

If you are short on space in the

garden, grow your veges in containers

and/or pots. Try silverbeet,

spinach, broccoli, peas and winter

lettuce. Use fresh potting mix and

make sure your pots/containers

have good drainage holes. Place

them in a warm sunny, north

facing, position, away from strong

winds. Add a layer of mulch on

top to protect the soil.

Planting flowering winter

annuals

Summer flowering annuals are

just about finished. Remove old

plants into the compost bin and if

you haven’t already, prepare beds

for planting with fresh compost.

Winter annuals to plant in this

month include; alyssum, aquilegia,

calendulas, cineraria, cornflower,

lobelia, lupins, nemesia,

pansies, primulas, snapdragons,

status, stock, sweet pea, sweet william,

violas and wallflowers.

Plant up pots and containers

for colourful displays on decks

and balconies – they will provide

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

a real lift over the dreary, cold

winter months.

Preparing the strawberry

patch

May is the preferred time for

planting strawberries so use this

month to prepare your strawberry

patch for planting. Prepare the

soil and mound areas for planting

above the existing ground level,

adding fresh compost and compacting

the soil. Remove ‘runners’

from last seasons strawberry

plants and keep them in a large

container filled with fresh potting

mix until they are planted next

month.

Fruit tree harvesting

Feijoas and early kiwifruit are

ripening. Leave feijoas to fall to

the ground before collecting the

fruit. All stone fruit trees can be

given an end-of-season spray with

a copper compound towards the

end of April. Peach and nectarine

tree pruning can start as their leaf

fall has begun. Lemons will be

colouring later in the month and

can be harvested then.

Ornamental shrubs

The first of the winter flowering

shrubs such as camelias will begin

blooming. Garden centres will

have new season plants in stock

next month, so prepare new gardens

for planting now by adding

plenty of compost.

End of the rose growing

season

Just a few rose varieties such

as iceberg will be flowering into

May. In general, roses are near the

end of their growing season and

sadly, look their least attractive.

Preparing your garden for winter weather

NOURISH: Add plenty of compost into your existing soil.

Wednesday April 7 2021 Selwyn Times

MAINTENANCE:

Snip off

strawberry

runners ready for

planting in May.

Although it may be tempting to

start pruning, it’s still a little early

as a warm spell can bring about a

burst of new growth which could

then be damaged by frosts. Continue

good garden hygiene such

as removing all fallen leaves and

dead flowers to help prevent overwintering

fungal diseases like rust

and blackspot.

Last month for lawn care

A great month for tackling

major work renovating existing

lawns or laying a new one. It

may sound a bit repetitive, but

preparation really is the key to

success in growing a healthy

lawn. With new lawns (or even

lawn repair), only import clean,

top quality topsoil or lawn soil.

Always seek advice about the

best lawn type for your

property. For existing lawns,

apply lawn fertiliser in early

April to encourage strong, even

growth.

In the Garden

with iNtelligro

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.

Huge load space in Hyundai Santa Fe

MY SON recently purchased

a new television, a giant 65in

model.

The key question I asked

the salesperson at the time of

purchase was: “Would I be able

to transport it home in a sport

utility vehicle?’’ He answered yes,

if it was a big wagon.

Well, I was driving one of the

biggest mainstream SUVs in the

market – Hyundai’s new Santa

Fe – and although it was a bit of a

squeeze we did manage to get the

new TV home.

That’s one of the benefits of

the modern SUV concept, they

are adaptable with a multitude

of uses, and the new Santa Fe

Limited with its 2.2-litre diesel

engine is a class act. Well, I guess

it needs to be, at almost $90k it is

an SUV that commands a serious

financial outlay.

Of course, there are other model

options – seven variants make

up the new range which starts at

$62,990 for a 2.5-litre four-cylinder

petrol model, and there’s also

a V6 petrol in the line-up.

The new Santa Fe is exactly

that, it is an all-new shape and

sits on an all-new platform, what’s

more it gets a new diesel engine,

and while the cubic capacity is

much the same as the previous

generation model, it’s an allaluminium

unit which is smooth,

quieter, more powerful and efficient

than before.

CAPABLE: Up to 1625-litres of cargo can be transported

beneath the Santa Fe’s tailgate.

HYUNDAI SANTA FE LIMITED: Plush, luxury SUV with a choice of engines.

The Limited model gets the

new diesel, although, as mentioned,

you can get it with petrol

power as well, but the V6 Limited

doesn’t have drive to all four

wheels.

That aside, the four-cylinder

turbocharged diesel is rated at

148kW (3800rpm) with 440Nm

of torque available from 1750rpm

to 2750rpm.

Not only are these outputs

impressive in terms of flexibility

and outright grunt, it is one of

the smoothest oil burners you are

ever likely to find in a vehicle of

this type.

It is hooked to a recently-developed

eight-speed dual clutch automatic

transmission, something

that is shared with Hyundai’s

partnership with Kia. Interaction

between the engine and gearbox

is smooth and seamless, and the

gear ratios are structured so that

they work efficiently with the

engine’s power and torque bands,

especially so the mid-range rev

spread.

In this form, the Santa Fe is relatively

quick for a vehicle which

weighs in at almost two-tonne.

According to my stopwatch it will

make 100km/h from a standstill

in under 9sec.

As you would expect in the

new-age SUV, the Santa Fe

is fitted with the latest drive

technologies, it has all-corner

propulsion which can be activated

by the driver at the turn of

a dial through a complex series of

modes and functions. Because of

the driveline mechanicals there is

a lot of suspension complexity.

Mostly, though, there is feel

and grip that the driver can use

with confidence and reassurance.

The ride is also quiet, and a lot

of that has to do with the quality

of the tyres – the big Continental

rubber (255/45 x 20in) has a firm

road feel and transports messages

to the steering wheel in a solid,

communicative way.

The Santa Fe is a fine touring

vehicle, and after years of development

the ride/handling balance

is as good as you would get in any

SUV, least of all one that sits in

the large luxury segment.

I presented the evaluation

car with a tight set of corners

between Darfield and Burnham,

the Santa Fe leans a little bit, but

such are the spring and damper

rates body movement isn’t excessive

and the occupants shouldn’t

be disappointed with the in-cabin

comfort levels.

Add in a vehicle that weighs in

at around 1900kg, there is a lot

of vehicle to get through a tight

corner, yet it does so with dignity

and purpose.

That’s one of the reasons why

SUVs have become so popular,

they perform admirably and,

in the Santa Fe’s case, it is also a

plush luxury car which impresses

• Price – Hyundai Santa Fe

Limited, $89,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4785mm; width, 1900mm;

height, 1710mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2151cc, 148kW, 440Nm,

eight-speed automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 8.9sec

• Fuel usage – 7.5l/100km

with its refinement.

Major items of specification include

full leather trim with electrically

adjustable seats up front

(also heated). There is head-up

display, paddle-shift gear selectors

and new display graphics which

change face when the indicator

stalk is activated, side views of the

vehicle give the driver clear vision

of what is happening outside.

Also, it must be mentioned the

Limited model also gets remote

starting and movement, should

the driver’s door be hard to access,

such as a tight car park, the

vehicle can be driven forward or

reversed using the remote key.

Hyundai has upped the ante in

terms of fuel use. The Santa Fe

returned some interesting fuel usage

information during my time

with the test car. At 100km/h

in top gear the big diesel sips

fuel instantaneously at around

4.5-litres per 100km, turning over

at just 1600rpm. A test average of

7l/100km is respectable for vehicle

weight, and compares well to

Hyundai’s combined cycle claim

of 6.1l/100km.

Although the television wasn’t

heavy, it was bulky and claimed a

fair hunk of space made easy by

the clever seat folding system. In

terms of figures, the load area can

claim up to 547-litres, 1625-litres

with the rear second row of seats

folded. Yes, the Santa Fe is a useful

seven-seater.

I was scheduled into Hyundai’s

new Santa Fe just before Christmas,

however, a shipping mix-up

meant it wasn’t dispatched to

Christchurch.

Fast forward two months and

the range-topping Limited arrived.

The wait was really worth

it, it’s sophistication speaks

volumes, the Santa Fe is a model

that sits on the outer periphery

of the luxury wagon market, yet

it competes admirably with all of

the big names.

However, its biggest competition

will come from Kia’s new

Sorento; the two South Korean

companies are partners, yet battle

each other fiercely, especially in

terms of pricing.

The new Sorento, with a similar

driveline, has an advantage

there, how it all plays out in

the marketplace will be very

interesting to watch.

Choices, Options and Opportunities

We are so excited to share with you this modern, builders

own home and lifestyle property presently offering not

just the opportunity to enjoy the stylishly renovated and

extended home on 6.29 acres with 3 stables, tack room, 2

bay haybarn (with mezzanine for storage) but could allow

potential for subdivision in the future. All this so close to

Prebbleton and only 10 minutes to the city - how’s that

for a total package!

But the appeal is far greater than just the potential. You’ll

quickly discover a fabulous backdrop for entertaining

thanks to the elegant kitchen and the generous living

spaces which open out to the patio. Here you are nestled

in the manicured garden for outdoor dining with access

to the cosy alcove space for the spa. Living enjoys a log

fire (with heat transfer) and heat pump while all four

bedrooms are genuine doubles. A separate laundry and

storage room complete the picture.

Thanks to crisp paintwork, quality carpet and rich solid NZ

oak wood flooring, internal décor is fresh and ready for

your personality, while outside the contemporary feel is

continued with a plaster finish.

The numerous outbuildings offer so many uses; work

from home (3 phase power to the pump shed), a home for

your horses or simply perfect storage.

471 Springs Road – Prebbleton

This property is a rarity with so many options you could live

and enjoy, land bank for the future or make a home for your

lifestyle!

It is a must view.

Deadline Sale: Plus GST (if any).

All offers presented Wednesday, 14th April at 4pm

(unless sold prior).

Fix those

minor defects

Start out front, cleaning, clearing and

decluttering the yard to make a good

impression on buyers.

It’s a rare house that doesn’t have defects.

Even newly renovated ones can have

features that detract for buyers. But there

are ways for sellers to deflect attention

from them without pretending they’re not

there. The three main ways of dealing with

defects are:

1. Fix them.

2. Draw the eye away from them.

3. Use them as a selling point.

Simple defects can be fixed easily. Start

out front. Overgrown bushes can be

trimmed, or replaced with a few matching

plants, old fences and front doors can be

painted or stained, and the paths cleaned.

Do this even if a property is a do-up.

You want to give the impression that

buyers can move into the house and chip

away at the work in their own time

If you have time and money, paint sills

and eaves using accents.

Inside, the first thing buyers see is the

hallway, which can be brightened up with

a lick of paint. The neutral paint trick can

also be used to paint over dated wallpaper,

completely changing the look and feel of a

tired house.

Bathrooms and kitchens are important to

buyers, and the eye settles on vanities and

benches. These can be resurfaced relatively

quickly to give a modern look.

If the seller can’t repaint or tile the

bathroom bring in high quality matching

towels, which become a feature in the

room and draw the eye from the less than

desirable walls and features. Nice vases and

flowers will do the same.

Replacing handles and knobs to draw

attention away from the units themselves.

This reduces the number of “I have to do

this” thoughts in potential buyers’ minds.

Drawing the eye away from a multitude

of sins is exactly the thing to do.

If you see an empty house the eye always

goes to marks on the carpet and walls and

this will lower the price expectation.”

Drawing the eye to the furniture and

furnishings, creates better flow, and de

cluttering makes buyers feel the home

would be a nice place to live in.

The other way to handle the property’s

defects is to raise them with the buyer

before they see them.

If the carpet is bad, for example, you

can say: “Hey, they were going to replace

the carpet but they decided to leave it to

you to choose a new carpet and priced it

accordingly.”

Finally, good old fashioned elbow grease

is essential in all properties to remove

those sins that are simply cleanable.

place to call home?

Show homes

the ultimate way to shop around

Across the selwyn district, we are blessed with an

extensive array of very good quality show homes.

Building companies build show homes

to demonstrate their workmanship,

display innovative design ideas and

present a snapshot into a new and

luxurious lifestyle, featuring all the

latest in materials, fittings and fixtures.

A show home can inspire you in a way

nothing else can. You can absorb the

ambiance they present and admire the

innovative techniques, new materials

and technology.

You can ask questions, take notes

and compare. You can see at a glance

features you would love to emulate or

would avoid when building your home.

Best of all, you ;will see the building

companies’ attention to detail.

Show homes are the perfect way to get

a good idea of pricing, discover good

quality and value, learn about superior

use of space, future-proofing, ongoing

maintenance and long-term returns.

So what are you waiting for? Check

out our maps, grab a notepad and

pencil and begin the exciting project of

building your own home.

Anyone intending to build a new home

should have the builder’s contract checked

out by an experienced lawyer.

A payment schedule can also minimise

financial risks. Issues that you may have to

deal with include:

the deposit, guarantees and warranties

If you want to compare building

companies, it’s important to get down

to finer details such as how many power

points there are per room, the type of

windows you are having or which paint

finishes are included.

Questions to ask builders include:

• Do you have a

completion guarantee

and how does it work?

• Is there a loss of

deposit guarantee?

• Is the company a

Registered Master

Builder and does

it use third-party

written guarantees?

• What is the schedule

for payments?

• How are the deposit

and progress

payments

administered?

• Are they held in a solicitor’s trust fund?

• Will the master franchisor complete

the build if the franchisee goes out of

business

• What are the exact specs?

• Are the prices fixed?

• What is excluded from the build?

• Are there any restrictions on

driveways or any other connections?

• Can you speak with clients who have

just completed a build?

Do your homework before you decide on a

building company and you will have a less

stressful time once the building process

starts.

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Hot real estate market dictates

buyers be smart and aware

Tall

Poppy

Owner,

Michael

Seymour

We’re heard it all before: Selwyn’s the fastest growing

area, it’s never been a better time to buy and well,

etcetera, etcetera. But here are some real stats that

Michael Seymour, owner of Tall Poppy Real Estate,

was keen to talk about. Stock levels are down

44% on last year. Average expected sale price has

increased by 23% to $750,000, and property is selling

25 days quicker in an average of just 41 days. In

short, the few houses available for sale are selling

fast and at higher prices.

In 2020 the market was a little blasé, but right

now—the market is hot. Three bedrooms/two

bathrooms houses are still in high demand and

most buyers are coming from Christchurch

City following the national trend of rising

property prices, flexible working conditions

and less need to be central to the city. It’s

also getting much harder to find a slice of

land to build on.

Be smart and do your research

Michael says with so many buyers

out there it can be deflating. People are

anxious and everyone is bidding on

everything. His advice to buyers is to

see every single listing in your area.

Be smart—have daily alerts set up for

Trade Me and other real estate sites

and when they come through, enquire

immediately. And to sellers, do your research. Go to

as many open homes as you can. See the different

styles and standards of the agents out there and

look for someone with a personality that you’re

comfortable with. A good track record of past

sales numbers isn’t the only indicator of the best

person to work with.

Selwyn’s tall poppy

Helen Lee came to Selwyn from the UK and has

been living in the area for fourteen years. She loves

our community, and the many residents she meets

who are on their own real estate journey.

With a background in banking and

stockbroking, Helen is comfortable with

financial assets and negotiating for the

best result; she’s professional and an

expert in the local area. Helen recently

won the Rate My Agent, Agent of the

Year Award for the suburb of Lincoln

and was also #89 in the Agent of

the Year Awards for New Zealand.

Something to be proud of, especially

when they were based on client

feedback.

Potential buyers are

likely to be living in your

neighbourhood, it’s an

area that they already love

and are actively seeking

to stay in. That’s why it

makes sense to advertise

your property in the

Selwyn Property Guide.
