Call for



over disposal

of Diamond

Harbour land

• By Samantha Mythen

THE CITY council is calling for

submissions on the disposal of

Diamond Harbour land included

in its Long Term Plan.

However, Diamond Harbour

resident Richard Suggate believes

disposal of the land requires

public consultation not just submissions,

due to the many issues

of concern to the

community that

would arise from

sale of the land.

The land runs

between village

housing and

Bay View Rd,

described as 27 Richard

Hunters Rd and Suggate

42 Where Ave.

This area was originally purchased

by the Banks Peninsula

council for future zoning and it

currently sits as city council freehold

with district plan zoning.

Suggate is calling for the

community to submit to the LTP,

asking the land be removed from

the plan.

Disappointment at supermarket closure

• By Samantha Mythen

END OF AN ERA: The Redcliffs Four Square supermarket

will close its doors on April 24.

SHOPPERS ARE disappointed

but not surprised about the

impending closure of the Four

Square supermarket in Redcliffs.

Foodstuffs has announced the

supermarket will close its doors

on April 24.

Imre Speizer lives in Sumner

and often shopped at Four


“I am displeased at the closing,

however, I am not surprised

as the number of shoppers was

always dwindling,” he said.

as New World in 2015

of earthquake damage, Speizer

thought it would slowly take off.

In a normal, non-Covid world,

it would have grown in use, he


However, the shop re-branded

as Four Square in June 2020, a

move Speizer said, was too hasty.

numbers of shoppers, the brand

change did not make sense,’’

Speizer said.

Nancy Meherne is 92-years-old

and also lives in Sumner. She said

she will be sad to see the shop

close because of its convenience,

however, she usually shops at

Countdown in Ferrymead anyway

because it is much cheaper.

Said Meherne: “It is understandable

it is closing. There

weren’t ever many people there,

sometimes I was the only one.”

Margaret McKie, agreed with

Meherne on her sentiments of

shopping somewhere cheaper –

she usually does her larger shops

at Pak’n Save.

Said Tim Donaldson, general

manager retail, Foodstuffs South

Island: “We would like to thank

our loyal Redcliffs customers for

supporting the store over the last

20 years – it’s always a sad day to

close a store and we very much

wish things had turned out differently.”

Foodstuffs South Island is

looking at alternative options for

the use of the building following

closure, which may include

selling or leasing the site.

Mountain bike club now has

voice in reserves committee

• By Samantha Mythen

MOUNTAIN BIKERS now have a voice

in the contentious Lyttelton Reserves

Management Committee.

At a committee meeting on March 22,

Joshua Merriam, treasurer for the Lyttelton

Mountain Bike Club, was nominated

and voted to join the group, which

manages the upkeep of Lyttelton


He was appointed to the

committee after the resignation

of members Sarah Amazzinia

and Omar Seycehll in March had



opened up two new places. Rewi

Couch was also voted on to the


The day after Merriam was

appointed, the Banks Peninsula

Community Board met with the committee

to address complaints received over

alleged mismanagement and inaction.

Banks Peninsula Community Board

chairwoman Tori Peden said: “We had

heard complaints but hadn’t heard the

committee’s side.”

Merriam said the main concern raised

was that not all users of the reserve were

being heard and their perspectives taken

into account.

“The good work the committee was

doing was also acknowledged but this

didn’t negate the fact that some groups

are being shut out and not listened to.”

Peden explained the outcome from the

meeting was the realisation better communication

was needed.

“We have to clear up the miscommunication

and frustration and be on the

same page.”

Peden believes it is important the

reserves committee has representation

from all of the user groups.

“With Josh now on the committee, it is

a move in the right direction. The committee

can really hear from the mountain

bike community.”

Merriam has been campaigning

for the approval of track upgrades

at the entrance of Urumau Reserve

since 2018.

The track in question is a component

of the 2018 Urumau Development

Plan. After the Urumau

Development Plan was passed last

term, city council staff had put aside

money and resources for the track

to become official.

However, no progress had been made

since then to actually approve the access

track into the reserve. Instead the track

is still classified as a “proposed track,” in

spite of being used by both mountain bikers

and walkers alike to access the track.

Peden explained this issue was cleared

up at the meeting.

Said Peden: “The staff are there to help

with funding and resources. We are not

asking the reserves committee to do the

work themselves.”

Peden is hoping to receive a report on the

next steps for the track by early May and

then for the track to be in place by July.

Merriam officially presented a petition

asking for the track to be approved to

the latest community board meeting on

Monday with 104 signatures.

“Forward and back discussions

are needed, as there are complex

issues involved,” he said.

“If the land was sold, there is

no public consultation requirement

for the developer.”

Without public consultation,

Suggate believes the action would

contravene section 82 of the

Local Government Act.

Said Diamond Harbour Community

Association chairman

Nathan Graham: “We think the

LTP is not the appropriate vehicle

for land disposal. There needs to

be more consultation with the

community before the property

is sold.”

Suggate explained the area is

about one-third of the current

Diamond Harbour area in size,

running across the back of the

village, adjacent to many houses.

Sale of the land could result in

200-300 more houses being built.

“Diamond Harbour is a stand

alone community and the area

concerned is a large chunk of

land, right next to where people

live,” Suggate said.

“It is not just a random subdivision,

rather it would be adding

on to an existing settlement

which has developed and grown

slowly over time. People are

interested in what will happen if

the land is sold.”

Graham agreed that the land

sale would affect the wider community

and thus they need a say

in how it is developed.

“The community needs a say

in how they want Diamond

Harbour to be in the next 20-30


However, city council head of

facilities, property and planning

Bruce Rendall said there has not

been any attempt to fast track

disposal of the land.

Rendall explained recent

changes have increased community

input alongside allowing for

consideration of the financial

implications of decisions.

“The LTP process requires

extensive consultation, ensuring

Latest Canterbury news at

that there is a wide variety of

input into decisions. Local interests

can be considered, through

individual submissions and community

board input, as well as

broader ratepayer considerations.

Within the land is Morgan’s

and Sam’s gullies. Volunteers

have been working for a number

of years to restore these areas

with native vegetation. It is hoped

the gullies will eventually become

reserves but they are yet to

be protected by covenants.

Suggate said if the land was

sold before the gullies were covenanted,

the reserves committee

volunteers would have to deal

with the new developers who

own the land.

“The council would wash their

hands of the responsibility.

Rendall said actions to protect

these gullies are well advanced.

Suggate said another issue is

that the land boundaries are

currently infused with residents’

daily activities. Some people

have built private gardens over

the years. There is a track to

Diamond Harbour School, which

is used daily by students.

Other factors regarding

infrastructure also need to be

considered such as, if more

would need to increase in size,

Suggate said.

“Maybe some of the land could

be set aside for the school’s expansion

as it backs on to the area.

This would need to be decided

before the land’s disposal.”

Furthermore, Suggate said

the roads leading to the area are

narrow and are not suitable for

increased traffic and the village’s

wastewater system is failing.

“The council should think

about other ways to use the land,

like whether it should be sold in

one go or sold in bits.”

Said Suggate: “Public

consultation will change the

way any future subdivision is

undertaken and will better reflect

what the community want to


Suggate shared these views at

the Banks Peninsula Community

Board meeting on Monday, supported

by the Diamond Harbour

Community Association.

Board chairwoman Tori Peden

agreed with Suggate, saying the

LTP was the wrong process for

the land sale.

“We are asking the city council

that this be taken out of the LTP

and be put through a public

consultation process.”

Rendall acknowledged the

city council will consider the

feedback received from the public

submissions before deciding the

next steps relating to the land.

HECTOR’S dolphins advocate

Genevieve Robinson is

demanding better marine

protection of the dolphins.

Robinson delivered a legal

opinion to Environmental Canterbury

on Monday, challenging

its lack of action in protecting

hector’s dolphins.

She is asking

for stronger protections

of the

dolphins from

trawl fishing and

gillnetting. Under

the Fisheries

Act, trawlors can

operate within

two nautical miles

from shore.

Robinson hopes ECan will act

urgently, either banning gillnetting

and trawling in the Hector’s

dolphins habitat or banning

both fishing activities within 12

nautical miles from shore.

Robinson engaged prominent

Resource Management Act

lawyer James Gardner-Hopkins,

after becoming increasingly

frustrated by ECan’s failure to

uphold its duties in protecting

the dolphins.

Call for better protection for

hector’s dolphins from ECan



ENDEMIC SPECIES: Hector’s dolphins are the smallest

oceanic dolphin species and call the Banks Peninsula

waters their home. PHOTO: GENEVIEVE ROBINSON​

During last year’s lockdown,

Robinson routinely monitored

fisheries activities in the Banks

Peninsula through online apps.

“While we were locked up in

our homes, fisheries carried on

as usual, working as an essential

service,” she said.

Robinson then discovered,

through an Official Information

Act request, a hector’s dolphin

had been caught by a fishing

vessel in March.

The fishermen at the time had

reported this to the Department

of Conservation, which then

notified Conservation Minister

Eugenie Sage.

However, the public were only

told of the dolphin by-catch five

months later.

Said Robinson: “Hector’s are

still being caught. It goes on. We

know it goes on.”

Robinson believes change

needs to occur around the way

fishing is allowed in areas where

there are also large populations

of hector’s dolphins.

“The problem is the marine

sanctuary in the Banks Peninsula

is not doing its job,” Robinson


“It is only a sanctuary in terms

of protecting the dolphins from

seismic surveys and mining.

Sanctuary is a word that looks

good on paper but it doesn’t play

out its proper role based on the

public’s conservation expectations.”

In the letter, Gardner-Hopkins

acknowledges ECan has the

power to impose controls of fishing

through its regional coastal

environmental plan in order to

protect hector’s dolphins.

“ECan can make protective

changes overnight. If they go by

the books, it will take too long.

We need urgent action on this,”

said Robinson.

Robinson has previously called

out the Lyttelton Port Company

on its cruise berth construction


Prior to her first sighting of

hector’s dolphins in 2013, she did

not know New Zealand had an

endemic dolphin species.

Since then, she has been working

“non-stop,” to advocate for

their protection.

pupils want a sign in memory of

Hilda Frame to be put up in the

reserve opposite the school.

Six pupils, along with deputy

principal Liza Rossie, spoke

about the idea at the Banks

Peninsula Community Board

meeting on Monday.

The children want a sign to be

put in place, naming the reserve

as Hilda Frame Reserve, with a

QR code that can be scanned to

show photos of Frame and some

information on her story.

The reserve, on the corner of

Main Rd and Cresswell Ave is

the site of the Governors Bay

community centre and swimming


Hilda Frame bequeathed this

area of land to the community

after her death in 1981.

Born in 1900, Frame lived

there in a small cottage, where

for more than 50 years she took

care of more than 300 orphan

children, standing in as their

foster mother. She was awarded

the British Empire Medal for her


Last year, the junior school

did an inquiry into “Our Place,

community and reserves,” and

learned about how they could be

guardians of their reserves.

During this study, they discovered

Frame’s story shared in

the 1868 Governors Bay School


Rossie explained they all felt

surprised there was no signage

about Frame in the park and

decided to work towards putting

one in place.

“The reserve is currently called

LPC principal

sponsor for



THIS YEAR, Lyttelton Port

Company has increased its level

of support of the Banks Peninsula

Conservation Trust to that of

principal partner.

BPCT is a not-for-profit organisation

that works with the community,

government agencies,

iwi, and businesses to protect the

peninsula’s natural environment.

The principal partner role sees a

doubling of funds provided to the

trust, which general manager Maree

Burnett said would make a real

difference for the organisation.

LPC has been a significant

supporter of BPCT since 2014

when the organisations partnered

to implement the Port Saddle restoration

project on 17ha of port

land in Lyttelton. The partnership

represents working towards realising

LPC’s sustainability goal of

being positive biodiversity.

Head of environment and

sustainability, Kim Kelleher,

said continuing to develop LPC’s

relationship with the trust is

fundamental to playing the port’s

part for nature.

Burnett said protecting the

peninsula’s biodiversity is a long

term journey. She said aligning

with like-minded organisations,

such as LPC, along the way is key.

My Darling Lemon Thyme...

Every Day

by Emma Galloway

Over 100 vegetarian recipes, flavour-packed + gluten-free

Spiced pumpkin snacking cake, Pea, mint + halloumi fritters,

Mushroom + lentil lasagne, and Roasted strawberry + ginger

‘ice cream’ are among the beautiful, nourishing, simple-to-make

and absolutely delicious recipes celebrated in Emma Galloway’s

third book from her home kitchen.

Everyday food should be quick and easy, using readily available ingredients

and simple techniques. Over years working as a chef and as a mother of two,

Emma has designed tips and tricks to make cooking simpler through planning

ahead and using ingredients that are easy to swap out. Dotted throughout

My Darling Lemon Thyme: Every Day, you will find ‘anything’ recipes to suit

your tastes and whatever ingredients you have to hand. All the recipes are

vegetarian, flavour-packed and gluten free - recipes you can trust, for every

season, every day.

Elizabeth & Margaret

The Intimate World of the Windsor Sisters

by Andrew Morton

They were the closest of sisters and the best of friends. But when, in a quixotic

twist of fate, their uncle Edward VIII decided to abdicate the throne, the dynamic

between Elizabeth and Margaret was dramatically altered. Forever more, Margaret

would have to curtsey to the sister she called ‘Lillibet’. And bow to her wishes.

Elizabeth would always look upon her younger sister’s antics with a kind of

stoical amusement but Margaret’s struggle to find a place and position inside the

royal system - and her fraught relationship with its expectations - was often a

source of tension. Famously, the Queen had to inform Margaret that the Church

and government would not countenance her marrying a divorcee, Group Captain

Peter Townsend, forcing Margaret to choose between keeping her title and royal

allowances or her divorcee lover. From the idyll of their cloistered early life, through

their hidden wartime lives, into the divergent paths they took following their father’s

death and Elizabeth’s ascension to the throne, this book explores their relationship

over the years. Andrew Morton’s latest biography offers unique insight into these

two drastically different sisters - one resigned to duty and responsibility, the other

resistant to it - and the lasting impact they have had on the Crown, the royal family

and the way it has adapted to the changing mores of the twentieth century.

Hospo a way to keep community together

Nic Graham calls

Governors Bay both

her home and her

workplace, having

established cafe

Harbour House in what

was once named She.

Samantha Mythen

talks to her about the

business and her role in

the community

How did you find yourself in

Governors Bay?

I have a really vast

background. I was in hospitality,

banking, account management,

sales and recruitment – all

sorts of things. Then I had my

children and we moved to the

bay about seven years ago. I’ve

lived in a lot of different places

and have never settled anywhere

before. One of the things I’ve

always wanted to do is live by the

water and I love it here.

When we were first exploring

to buy in Christchurch, we came

up out to the bay a few times. I

didn’t know Christchurch well

and we were told: ‘Oh you never

get any sun over there.’

We eventually bought a villa

in Spreydon, which we renovated

fully, finishing after two years.

Then the quakes wrote it off, the

house market went nuts, and we

randomly thought: ‘Let’s go look

at this place in the bay.’ We saw

the house on the weekend and

it went to auction on Thursday

so we didn’t have time to think

much about it, but we got it at


What do you love about

Governors Bay?

The environment here and the

views. It’s beautiful, especially

this time of year with all of the

autumn colours. It felt like a nice

environment to raise our kids,

to get out of the city commercial

life. I love the people, I love the


Where are you from


I was born in Matamata and

I grew up in Hamilton. From

about 21, I left and did all sorts

of things. I lived in Westport

with my Dad. That’s where I got

into hospitality. I went down for

a holiday and ended up staying

thinking: ‘Oh my god, these

people are so relaxed, I want to

be like this.’

Dad at the time owned the

country pub, which was really

cool. Going from there, I ended

up working in the township at

Bailey’s Pub, function centre,

bar, bottle store, and restaurant.

What was your first stint in

hospitality like?

It was a real local wee pub

out of town and the banter was

great. When I started working at

Bailey’s, they had just renovated

this big function room, which I

got up and running. It was the

marketing side I really loved –

knowing there was no ceiling to

what you can do, so you can be

really creative.

COMMUNITY HUB: Nic Graham wants her cafe Harbour House to be a place where

people can take a relaxing break.


How did you find yourself in

charge of Harbour House?

Things changed for me a few

years ago when I separated from

my girls’ father and I thought:

‘What am I going to do? I really

want to stay here in the bay.

Okay, I’m going to start up a

food truck, the community

needs something like that.’

However, I ended coming

up against walls, and then this

place came up on the market.

I inquired, and then long story

short, I ended up buying it.

January 31 last year was my

opening day. I shut down for

about three and a half days

before. We were doing so much

to get things ready. With help of

tradie friends, we painted it all,

put in new tiles, I had shelves

made, we moved doors and put

a storeroom in. We did loads in

such a short amount of time.

The night before the opening

the place was just a tip with

tools everywhere. Then probably

about 10-15 people walked in

and helped me clear up and do

the final touches, they weren’t

even asked, they just turned up.

So it was like the community

helped me to get this together. It

was really cool.

Then we had a massive


We had Carmel Courtney

and two of the local kids sing.

She teaches singing and actually

teaches my girls. We had three

food stations around the place, a

complementary drink on entry

and the place by 6.20pm was

chocker. My daughter, who was

12 at the time, was doing the till

for me as I had no time to train

on it.

How did the evening make

you feel?

It was so cool, a real blessing

to the place. Then it was also

overwhelming because I was

thinking: ‘Oh, tomorrow, we

are actually going to be in


‘It’s about enjoying being

in here and receiving really

good service.’

– Nic Graham

What made you commit to

something as big as running a


I wanted my girls to see me be

able to achieve my dream. I have

always wanted to do this and

now it has come to fruition.

I was terrified at first. Then I

ran around town for a month

trying to get everything together.

It was honestly the scariest

thing I’ve ever done.

Where did the name Harbour

House come from?

When I started hospo, Dad’s



with her



(left) and


pub was in Cape Foulwind

and just past there is gorgeous

Tauranga Bay, so the pub was

named Bay House.

Ten days after the earthquake,

he passed away suddenly and the

pub went to new owners.

I’d been pondering what to call

this place for awhile. I wanted

to call it something “house,”

because I wanted it to feel like

home for people. I rang the Bay

House and asked if I could use

the name and they unfortunately

said no. I was stuck on Bay

House and was feeling so

disappointed, because we call it

the Bay here, so the Bay House

would have been perfect.

Then, a friend of mine texted

me saying: ‘What about Harbour

House?’ and I said: ‘Yes that’s it.’

You’ve mentioned quite a

lot that this is a cafe for the

community – what does that

mean to you? How do you

visualise it being a place for the


I am wanting this to be the

hub of the community, where

people come to meet and bump

into their friends and relax and

just hang. It should be a place

where people can approach

me for anything they want. It’s

about enjoying being in here and

receiving really good service.

You have hosted several

community fundraisers at

Harbour House, tell me about


We do all sorts of community

events. We have raised money for

the Kidney Society with a clothes

swap. We’ve done a function

for the Fire Service and had a

massive quiz and auction night

to raise money for the Governors

Bay year 8 school camp to

Wellington. We raised $4000 I

think. It was really cool and fun,

a good feel. It’s all about raising

money for the community.

I’ve also got local art in here

and it all often sells which is

really exciting and rewarding to

see for the artist.

We also came up with the idea

of takeaway meals, like cottage

pies during Covid, so people

could put them in their freezer. I

felt like the elderly wouldn’t want

to go into the supermarkets,

afraid of their higher risk of

contracting covid. The meals

went flying out the door.

As the business owner you

have many roles, but what’s

your favourite?

I would have liked to have

said marketing but right now, I

don’t do much of that because

I get tied up in everything else.

But really just being with all the

people who come in here is my

favourite part.

Any funny stories of people

here so far?

We were getting ready for

our first birthday celebration

earlier this year and just the

week before, we were about to

close and this girl came in and

I gasped pointing her out to an

employee, saying: ‘That’s the

singer.’ It was Hayley Westenra.

And I asked her and she yes. I

asked her to take photos with me

and I asked her to please come

to the birthday. She said she

would try. But she never showed

(laughs). I was so excited.

What has been the most

challenging side of running

your own business?

I was in business for seven

weeks and then Covid hit.

Then we went to level three

and had to change everything,

doing takeaways and losing

all of that tourism – this is a

tourism destination on top of

the local business. It has been

really tough, I feel like I’ve been

chasing my tail. Right now, I

don’t have a life or time out. But

I said to myself at the start: ‘I

know it is going to be a hard and

long two years.’ I am surviving

now and just have to keep going.

What are your happy things

outside of Harbour House?

Spending time with my girls

– one is 13 and one is almost

10. The other day we had fish

and chips at the beach and they

went for a swim. It was so nice.

I’m also very social, so catching

up with friends. Travelling is

massive for me, I love it. I’ve

been to Asia, Samoa, Raratonga

and Australia, and of course

throughout New Zealand. I

love camping, it is my big thing.

Tenting with my family. Okains

Bay is my favourite spot, it is

so great for children as well.

I’m really looking forward to

eventually having more time to

do that.

What does being a mother

mean to you?

It’s everything.

What’s your favourite meal to

eat here?

I am the most annoying owner

in the world, because I go into

the kitchen and say: ‘I’m really

hungry but I don’t know what

I want.’ But probably, our eggs

bennedict with salmon.

upcoming fundraiser. The event

is on April 24, starting 9am participants

from Godley House site to the

they like. The distance is about

910m per lap.

In the lead-up to and during

For all the artists involved, whether

Artists donate work to the

organisation to fundraise. They

also participate in exhibitions

where a portion of money from

the artwork sold goes to Hagar.

The next exhibition will be held

in Diamond Harbour in October.

In July, five local high school

students will exhibit their work.

In October each year, people

are asked to donate $10 – the

10th month.

Porter explained if 100 people

donate that is $1000, which can

make a world of difference to

trafficked people’s rehabilitation.

The group also runs coffee

morning fundraisers, where for a

small fee, which will be donated

to Hagar, people can listen to an

artist guest speaker. The most

recent guest speaker was printer

maker and oil artist, Gaby Reade.

Young yachtie cruises to national title

• By Chris Barclay


scuttled his plans to represent

New Zealand overseas, talented

Optimist sailor Will Leech is

staying upbeat.

After all, the 12-year-old

Cobham Intermediate School

student and member of the

Charteris Bay Yacht Club member

does have time on his side.

By becoming the South

Island’s first winner of the Optimist

National Championships

since fellow Cantabrian Jayvee

Buchanan in 2010, Leech should

have been setting sail for Lake

Garda in Italy, venue of the

world optimist championships

in June-July.

However, the global pandemic

means he will stay closer to

home in Charteris Bay on the

southern coast of Lyttelton harbour

to continue training while

playing rugby over the winter


“It’s disappointing not to be

able to go to Italy, the world

championships will be a goal for

next season,” he said.

Leech expertly improved on

last year’s second placing in the

Open fleet with a canny display

of consistent sailing on the E

course used by the America’s

Cup and Prada Cup teams in


He only won one of the 12

races he contested off the Maraetai

Sailing Club headquarters

last week, but he also only had a

solitary double-digit placing, a

10th he was able to discard from

his points score.

Otherwise he never finished

outside the top-six among the

76-strong fleet throughout five

days of racing.

He finished 15 points clear of

Auckland’s Joe Leith from the

Murrays Bay Boating Club.

“What I was focusing on was

keeping consistent because

one of Dad’s mates was the OK




sailor Will

Leech won his

first Optimist



by a comfortable

margin in





Dinghy world champion and he

only won one race,” Leech said,

referencing Christchurch sailor

Matt Stechmann’s triumph at

Melbourne in 2014.

“I’m been working really

hard over the last few seasons,

it’s always been a dream to win

it. I’m so stoked to beat all the

Aucklanders,” he said.

Leech, who claimed the boys

title and the overall honours,

sails a raft of different boats,

including a P Class and an F8

Foiler, which he built with his

father Dan.

“It’s super competitive at that

top level so to go up there and

actually win it is a huge achievement,”

Leech’s father said.

“It’s pretty full on, race days

up in Auckland, sometimes

you’re on the water for six hours

a day.”

Each competing country

can send their top-five ranked

optimist to the global showpiece,

so Covid-19 also ruined Leech’s

plans to go to Europe last year,

where Italy withdrew their bid

before the world championships

were cancelled.

Fortunately Leech, who started

sailing at age six, is eligible to

compete in the Optimist class

for another two years.

Leech has already represented

New Zealand abroad as a part of

a development team to Noumea

in 2019 and has sizeable goals on

the horizon.

“I want to be involved in the

Sail GP and the America’s Cup,”

he said.


The Avon-Heathcote Estuary Ihutai Trust is a

non-profit organisation formed to protect one of

New Zealand’s most important coastal wetlands.

Each week, board members will discuss matters

regarding the estuary, its rich history and what

makes it unique. This week Tanya Jenkins

writes about a former salt marsh that is now

Charlesworth Reserve

FROM WETLAND to industrial

area to farmland and now

returned to a spectacular


A brain-child by city council

ecologist and park ranger

Andrew Crossland, this was

a restoration plan to return a

20ha of drained salt marsh to its

former glory.

Once initial design of wet

and dry areas were scraped out

and walking paths had been

constructed, the estuary trust

offered, with enthusiasm, to

provide the elbow grease to replant

and co-ordinate volunteer

restoration sessions. September

2004 saw our first involvement

in this long road to restore this

area divided from the estuary by

Humphreys Drive.

With soil spoiled after

industry and cattle presence

for some 150 years, the land

required mulching and ‘resting’

to recover before the first hardy

plants like flax, cabbage trees,

Ngaio, oi oi and saltmarsh

ribbonwoods could be planted.

Followed by several years of

constant weeding of the young

plants to prevent being crowded

out by grasses, being gutted at

times observing plant losses due

to either drought, heavy frost,

flooding and the occasional

plant theft issue, perseverance

was rewarded when we started

to see some real green growth in

2012. It was only then, we could

plant a wider variety of plants

incl Kahikatea, Totara, Manuka

and Mahoe.

In 2015, it was city councillor

Sarah Templeton who was given

the honour to plant tree seedling

number 100,000 in the reserve.

Charlesworth Wetland today?

A coastal wetland with a large

variety of trees and shrubs

sheltering and protecting the

large numbers of lizards and

insects now present again. Small

islands provide safe roosting

and nesting sanctuaries for a

variety of birds. A little gem in

Christchurch and proof that

with a little bit of assistance,

nature is quite capable of healing

from damage done by people.

The estuary trust would

suggest you investigate this

spectacular reserve and see for

yourself and very likely agree

that yes, the annual 1500–1800

hours of voluntary work was

(and still is) absolutely worth it.

But we are not nearly finished.

Supervised by Andrew Crossland,

we meet every Sunday at

the Charlesworth St car park at

2pm for 2hr.

Novel Success for Linwood

College Business Student

“Who we are” helping inform “what we do”

Linwood College at Ōtākaro has been motivating

students to find and forge their own unique and

exciting pathways through the senior Business

Studies course. The rich cultural diversity of the

school is embraced and students are also using this

to inform their new product and marketing ideas.

Partnering with the Young Enterprise Scheme, the

school has picked up a number of awards in the

competition and also helped usher several students

along paths to setting up their own businesses and

studying in universities.

Students from many different countries and

backgrounds has been a real source of strength

for the school and this has

been reflected in the successful

business teams. Abdullah Wahidi

is one such student whose

business team created a children’s

book that advocates for diversity.

The book garnered national media

attention and can now be enjoyed

by children in local libraries

throughout Christchurch.

Abdullah was born in Afghanistan

and later moved with his family to

Pakistan before settling in New

Zealand in 2018 and becoming an

LCŌ student. In his senior year,

his Business Studies class had to

come up with ideas for a project to

enter in the Lion Foundation Young

Abdullah and his brother Abbas Wahidi

at Linwood’s Festival of Nations.

Enterprise Scheme. It was Abdullah’s hope that he

could to do something to address intolerance towards

other cultures. His community had been severely

traumatised by the recent 2019 Mosque attacks, and

he wanted to find a way forward towards healing and

coming together. “The staff, the students and all the

people at Linwood College have always respected

other cultures and were proud of being a diverse

college. Though there were only few students from

Afghanistan, LCŌ always recognised us and made

us feel a part of them by putting the Afghanistan flag

up on our Festival of Nations day and by encouraging

us to wear our traditional clothes.”

He teamed up with Paigan Watson-

Hall, along with classmates Josh

Stiles and Luka Russell. They

decided to create a children’s

book featuring tales from around

the world in the hope of inspiring

families to take a more openminded

view of different cultures. A

$1000 grant from the Christchurch

City Council Community Activation

Fund gave the students the

financial boost they needed to get

the ball rolling.

The first-print run of the book was

completely sold-out within two

weeks. Their success was picked

up in the national media who

celebrated the uniqueness of their


product and vision. The book can also now be found

in several libraries around Christchurch. Additionally,

the senior Business Studies students were presented

with the excellence award for customer and market

engagement at the Young Enterprise regional finals.

This year Abdullah is a Bachelor of Commerce student

at Lincoln University, majoring in marketing with a

minor in supply chain management. He is also part

of the Future Leader Scholarship Programme, which

provides students with opportunities to contribute to

the community. “I am the first in the family to study

at a university, so it was very exciting for me and my

family. I had a lot of tertiary education options but

chose Lincoln for the Future Leader Scholarship,

which is a program that is connected to what I want

to be in the future.”

Bright spot in Mitsubishi’s SUV range

I WAS PICKING up Mitsubishi’s

new Eclipse Cross from the

dealership and entered into

conversation with one of the

members from the friendly sales


After being shown around the

car, I mentioned that it seemed

too soon for the mid-size sport

utility vehicle to undergo a generation

change. In reply I was told

the old model had been around

for three years and, although time

has obviously escaped me, that is

indeed correct.

To say the Eclipse Cross is

all new isn’t strictly so, there

are many elements that are

carryovers, yet the popular SUV

has had some dramatic changes

that enhance its usability and

driveability. For one, it’s bigger –

14cm longer in fact – and most of

that has gone into the rear of the

model, increasing load and rear

passenger space.

While the engine hasn’t been

altered in design, there have been

improvements to make it quieter

and more responsive. It also

drives out of a new all-corner

power proportioning system.

Well, it’s not new either, but

it is new to Eclipse Cross, see

it’s much the same system that

Mitsubishi has used in its Lancer

Evolution models and the old

V6-powered Outlander.

The Super All Wheel Control

system is advanced and can be

seen largely as a safety system,

ROOMY: The new Eclipse Cross is longer than the previous

model, most of the length has gone into the rear section.

MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE CROSS: Generation change for 2021.

it also has modes for snow and

gravel that can be selected at will

by the driver.

Of course, not all Eclipse Cross

variants have four-wheel-drive, the

four-model range starts at $35,990

for a front-drive only model,

there’s also a high-spec VRX

front-driver at $41,990. The fourwheel-drive

range starts at $37,990

for the XLS, the evaluation car was

the high spec VRX at $43,990, and

it is chock full of goodies.

Items such as leather trim

(heated seats front and rear),

head-up display, dual-zone climate

control, active cruise control with

speed limiter, keyless entry and ignition,

electric sunroof (dual) and

paddle-shift eight-step automatic

transmission are all fitted.

It’s fair to say the controls have

all been simplified as well, gone is

the old centre console mouse-like

device, the new Eclipse Cross has

a touch screen display which has

large icons for easy understanding

and operation.

Now at 4.5m the Eclipse Cross

has a spacious in-cabin environment;

the seats are beautifully

supportive and comfortable,

while rear seat head and leg room

is appropriate, the latter not

compromised by that healthy rear

load space area – up to 405-litres

of storage can be contained there,

stretching to 672-litres with the

rear seats folded. Bear in mind,

though, it is a five-seater only.

At the other end sits a turbocharged

four-cylinder engine of

1499cc. If you are thinking that it

would be underwhelming, you’ll

be largely surprised, and take

into account that’s the direction

Honda has gone with its CRV,

the capacity and outputs are very


The Eclipse Cross’ unit is stateof-the-art

in terms of design, and

it has healthy figures to support

that statement. Mitsubishi claims

112kW and 254Nm power outputs,

the latter realised flat across the

torque curve spreading from

2000rpm to 3500rpm. If you add

in its pairing to a continuously

variable automatic transmission,

then the ingredients are in place for

a smooth transition of power and

responsive throttle application.

Drive through the CVT is

seamless, that’s an area Mitsubishi

has long persevered with, and

that background has certainly

helped with its application mated

to a turbocharged engine, the

result is a free-flowing spread of

power, and good economy and

performance figures.

The Eclipse Cross is rated with

a combined cycle average of

7.7-litre per 100km. On a long

high-country journey I had no

problem meeting Mitsubishi’s

fuel usage claim with the readout

constantly listing at 8.2l/100km,

which was helped by a wallet-friendly

6l/100km instantaneous

figure sitting at a steady

• Price – Mitsubishi Eclipse

Cross VRX, $43,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4545mm; width, 1805mm;

height, 1685mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,


1499cc, 112kW, 254Nm,

continuously variable


• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9sec

• Fuel usage – 7.7l/100km

100km/h, the engine loping over

very relaxed at just 1800rpm.

In terms of acceleration, the

Eclipse Cross will cut out a standstill

to 100km/h time of 9sec, and

it will power through a highway

overtake (80-120km/h) in 6.8sec,

using the paddle shifters to keep

the engine singing happily in its

peak power zone. These are all

impressive figures which would

make a buyer quite happy with

his/her purchase.

The Eclipse Cross is also rather

tidy when it comes to tackling a

tricky corner or two. I took the

evaluation car through the hilly

back roads beneath the Malvern

Hills between Sheffield and

Coalgate, those roads are partly

unsealed and I was keen to get the

feel of the SWAC system working

beneath. However, what happens

when grip is low is that all the

unseen elements kick in and the

driver is quite oblivious as to how

that system is working for you.

On seal the Eclipse Cross has

purposeful steering, the weighting

is near perfect and there is

solid communication as to how

the rubber is reacting to the road

surface. The tyres are a Toyo

brand (225/55 x 18in) and they

send strong messages through the

steering system so that the driver

is fully aware of how the entire

car is reacting under cornering

pressure. Body movement is low

and suspension control is high.

It must also be said the Eclipse

Cross moves through the air

quietly, the ride is controlled,

generating a level of comfort not

often found in a mainstream,

cost-friendly SUV.

Mitsubishi are well pleased

with their performance over the

last year or two. They have a vast

product range that hasn’t been

overly affected by supply issues

due to Covid-19.

What’s more, another high-profile,

new-generation model is due

soon – the Outlander. It and the

Eclipse Cross will dovetail nicely

in the marketplace, while sales of

the evergreen ASX continue to

tick over.

Any Mitsubishi buyer will be

pleased with the purchase, the

product is affordable and high

in quality. There is also peace of

mind, the Eclipse Cross gets a 10-

year driveline warranty.

Christchurch City Council has proposed Plan Change 8 to the District Plan to

better enable use and development of Māori land in the Papakāinga/Kāinga

Nohoanga zone.

The changes proposed seek to:

a. Significantly reduce the current 15m road setback for buildings on Māori

land to 3m, or 5m where the garage directly faces the road (so cars parked in

front of the garage door will not extend onto the road).

b. Reduce the current 10m internal boundary setback for buildings on Māori

land to 2m. A recession plane is proposed to be introduced to offset the

possible visual and privacy effects on neighbours of an internal boundary

setback reduction of this extent.

c. Increase the maximum permitted site coverage of buildings on Māori

land from 35 percent to 50 percent, to allow for the possibility of multiple

buildings on communally owned land.

d. Provide a more generous earthworks allowance – the same as for residential

zones – for Māori land in the Papakāinga/Kāinga Nohoanga zone, where

sites are below 2000m2.

e. Extend the definition of Māori land (for the purposes of the Papakāinga/

Kāinga Nohoanga zone only) so that general land in the following categories

can also benefit from the zone’s Māori land rules:

i. Land where a status declaration was made under the Māori

Affairs Amendment Act 1967 converting Māori freehold

land to general title, and there have been no changes of

ownership since the conversion other than to an owner’s

bloodline successor; or

ii. Land where one or more owners are able to provide written

evidence of Whakapapa to the original grantees of the land

as confirmed by the Te Runanga o Ngāi Tahu Whakapapa

Unit or the Māori Land Court;

iii. Land which is vested in a Trust constituted pursuant to

Part 12 of Te Ture Whenua Māori Act 1993 or a Māori

incorporation constituted pursuant to Part 13 of the Te Ture

Whenua Māori Act 1993;

iv. Land which is owned by a Rūnanga with authority/mana

over the area in which the original Māori reserve is located.

More information

The proposed Plan Change 8 and assessments required under section 32 of

the RMA, together with any supporting documents, can be viewed at any of the

Council’s service centres or libraries or at

We are holding public drop-in sessions to provide more information and answer

questions about the proposed Plan Change, which you are welcome to attend.

The sessions will be held:

• 28 April 2021 5:30pm-7pm, at Little River Rugby Clubroom, Little River.

• 4 May 2021 5:30pm-7pm, at Mt Herbert Community Facility, Lyttelton.


Anyone can make a submission on this plan change via our online form at or collect a hard copy form from our Civic Offices at

53 Hereford Street, or any of our service centres or libraries. For details of your

nearest service centre or library please visit or phone

03 941 8999.

Submissions must be received before 5pm on Thursday 13 May 2021.

Process for public participation

Once all submissions have been received, they will be made publicly available.

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 held to consider all submissions, and decisions will

be made following this hearing. Anyone who has made a submission has the right

to appeal the decision to the Environment Court.

The objectives, policies and rules proposed in this Plan Change will have no legal

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

matters raised in submissions or the Environment Court makes an order which

grants any rule immediate effect (RMA s86B).

If you’d like more information, please contact the City Planning Team on

941-8999 and ask to speak to, Glenda Dixon, Senior Policy Planner, about

proposed Plan Change 8 or email us at

Starlight Best Site - Loved for over 40 years

11 Starwood Lane, Sumner 3 bedrooms, 1 living, 1 dining, 1 bathroom, 4 car garaging

Built by the current owner and enjoyed for over 40 years, this home was

designed to optimise privacy and the picturesque surroundings. This

uniquely appealing family home upon Clifton Hill is positioned to perfection

and offers massive potential for modern enhancement. Classically crafted

and completely original, the home showcases soaring ceilings lined by

exposed beams that lend a hint of character. However, buyers will identify

the opportunity to introduce improvements, with the traditional interior

providing a desirable blank canvas where you can bring your ideas to life.

The views are sensational, particularly from the living area and kitchen,

overlooking everything from the city centre and the Southern Alps, across

to the estuary, Pegasus Bay and Kaikoura beyond. The location is made even

more favourable by its sun-saturated position, which also boasts exceptional

wind shelter for optimum comfort.

The split-level layout is the very definition of practical, serving up numerous

spaces to ensure everyone in the household can enjoy a place of their own. A

bathroom accompanies the home’s three bedrooms.

Indoor-outdoor flow has been thoughtfully considered, with various doors

inviting you to unwind upon the deck that naturally wraps around to the back

lawn and garden that is superbly arranged for those with children or pets.

Easy drive-on access is another bonus, with a sizeable four-car garage

offering substantial and secure vehicle storage. This approx 922sqm

property embraces a real sense of retreat yet is well placed to enjoy

Sumner’s many offerings with the beach, cafes, bars, schools and amenities

only a short drive down the hill and a park situated at the beginning of the

lane. Contact Paula or Simon for further information.
