Plan for

sports

centre to

continue

raises

concerns

• By Bea Gooding

PARKING shortages, speeding,

limited road visibility and

congestion needs to be

addressed if a proposal to lease a

high-performance sports facility

to the community gets the green

light, residents say.

The city council invited public

consultation aimed at establishing

what the community thought

about a non-profit group taking

over the Apollo Project Centre at

Jellie Park.

The facility’s future is

currently in limbo as its existing

owner, High Performance

Sport New Zealand, will be relocating

to Parakiore Recreation

and Sports Centre when it opens

next year.

Of the 26 responses received, 11

supported the use of the centre by

a community group, five did not

agree, and 10 indicated their view

depended on how current issues

would be resolved.

Issues highlighted in survey

• By Matt Slaughter

RESIDENTS ARE largely

unsatisfied with the condition

of roads and footpaths in

Christchurch.

The city council’s recent

Christchurch Residents’ Survey

revealed only

29 per cent

of those who

gave feedback

are satisfied

with the

condition of

roads and 36

per cent with

footpaths.

It comes

as the city council’s Long Term

Plan, which outlines its 10-year

budget, and has been undergoing

consultation since March, will be

finalised this month. It includes a

proposed budget of $18.3 million

a year, for the first three years of

the plan, for road resurfacing.

Meanwhile, the results of

the survey show 24 per cent

of respondents who have been

involved in governance processes

are satisfied with their influence

on city council decisions and

only 36 per cent understand how

its decisions are made.

It comes as 2381 Christchurch

Term Plan.

The city council says it is working

on ways to improve engagement.

The Star spoke to residents

in April after written consultation

for the Long Term Plan had

closed. All either did not know

what the Long Term Plan is, or

chose not to give feedback on it.

Canterbury University professor

Bronwyn Hayward believes

the number of people who gave

feedback on the draft Long Term

Plan is promising. However,

she said the reason more people

did not give feedback, could be

because they have a lack satisfaction

with their influence on city

council decisions.

“It is costly in terms of time

and resources to actually read

a plan and spend time writing

formal submissions.

“Many people that give submissions

are not expecting to

have their submissions agreed

with, but we do know that people

have confidence in a process

when they feel that they were

listened to respectfully and given

enough time to be heard.”

Said city councillor Yani Johanson:

“I think at a governance

level, we do need to consider how

we make it easier for people to

understand what council’s doing

and to be involved in what council’s

doing.

“Certainly, making it easier for

people to understand information

is critical. The second thing

is having greater transparency

and openness around our briefings.”

Said city council head of community

support, governance and

partnerships John Filsell: “We

are always looking at ways we

can improve our engagement.

“We are continuing to engage

and educate on decisions and we

actively encourage as many people

as possible to submit, contribute

and get involved via a variety

of channels – online, hard copy

and face to face.

“These questions [in the survey]

seek to establish if citizens

have had that opportunity to

contribute/influence/have their

say on council decisions – rather

than whether they were able

to influence council’s decision

to the individually preferred

outcome.”

In contrast to the city council

services residents are most concerned

with, there are many they

are happy with.

Of those surveyed, 100 per cent

are satisfied with education programmes

in Christchurch, 98 per

cent are happy with the Botanic

Gardens and Mona Vale, 95 per

cent with libraries, 97 per cent

with walk-in customer service

and 92 per cent with customer

service over the phone.

Overall satisfaction with city

council services is sitting at 49

per cent – a slight decrease from

50 per cent last year.

Traffic would need to be managed

• From page 1

Those who supported the idea

referred to various uses, including

a centre for community

groups, youth or elderly people.

The Grey Goose Wing Archery

Society and the Canterbury

Whitewater Club also commented

on why they needed the

facility for storage, training and

host competitions.

Parking along Chateau Drive

and Matisse Pl by athletes currently

using the centre was a key

issue for those opposing ongoing

use of the building.

Not only would they speed

and make too much noise, but

residents said they parked on both

sides of the road from early morning,

restricting road visibility.

A report by the city council’s

project team addressing issues

raised during consultation

outlined that future groups will

need to demonstrate the ability

to manage parking and traffic

flow.

“There are 22 parking spaces

associated with the facility and

20 bike storage spaces. Traffic

management plans will need to

identify how parking issues will

be minimised, including how

this will be enforced,” the report

read.

“Parking and speeding issues

on Chateau Drive have been

raised with the parking team

ISSUE: Parking on both sides of Chateau Drive restricts

visibility on the road.

at the city council to see what

they advise.”

There were also concerns the

building was not made to last,

considering it was temporary.

“The current facility should

have at least 17 years of useful life

remaining. If there is a successful

applicant who is granted a lease,

there will be a requirement for

them to remove the building at

the conclusion of a new lease.”

The 2300 sq m centre was built

to provide temporary training

facilities for high performance

athletes and teams following the

February 22, 2011, earthquake.

It was always intended to be removed

once Parakiore was completed,

but an opportunity rose

to retain it for the community.

The new group will have full

responsibility for running the

facility, including a full-sized

indoor netball court, a strength

and conditioning gym, a 40m

running track, showers, offices

and meeting spaces.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

recently completed a request for

proposal process, considering

early submissions from interested

groups.

A public notice with interested

parties will be issued and

residents will be able to provide

feedback on those parties before

a lease was awarded, provided

there were no objections.

RESIDENTS’ VIEWS ON THE APOLLO

The city council received

public submissions on

a proposal to lease the

Apollo Project Centre, a

high-performance sports

facility, to a community or

not-for-profit group once

the existing owners move

out. Here are some of the

responses:

“As an archery club that currently

has no indoor shooting

capability at our current venue,

we have been looking at a suitable

indoor venue to shoot indoor

postal competitions, hold coaching

or performance workshops

(we have a number of international

archers as members.)

“Our problem is storage,

archery targets are not small or

light, having a venue which has

walls capable of supporting a

safety net and space to shoot 18m

– 25 is even better.

“The Apollo Project Centre may

meet this, but the cost is just too

high for a minority sports club.

However, we would like to work

with the new committee that will

run it, to see if any agreement can

be made, especially with the possible

closure of the Christchurch

Archery Club if they cannot find a

suitable venue.”

– Colin Tucker, Grey

Goose Wing Archery

Society president

“I would like to see this used

for community groups and activities

for the elderly. Subsidised

Keep Fit, yoga or stretch classes

perhaps. Also a wellness clinic

- classes at Jellie Park are too expensive

for a lot of older people.

“You need to address the parking

problem, groups should be

encouraged to park at the Greers

Rd end of Jellie Park, there are

lots of parking spaces there.

Parking in Chateau Drive causes

many problems and will reflect

on the groups using the space.

The present users can be noisy

and often park over drives or opposite

driveways.”

– Marilyn Bishop

“The Christchurch Whitewater

Club is looking for a space to

store rafts, kayaks and other

white water equipment until

such time as the Avon River Hub

is constructed. They would be

interested in tenanting a storage

or meeting space, ideally an area

of 40 to 50m2 with external access.

The duration of this tenancy

would ideally be up to five years.”

- Crispin Schurr, Canterbury

Whitewater club vice

president

“I do not think the proposed

use by community recreation

groups should happen. This centre

was a temporary use site for

after the earthquakes.

PROJECT CENTRE

My understanding is due to

the necessity for a venue, no

community consultation took

place.

“Over time, parking has been a

local issue for residents in nearby

streets, namely Chateau Drive and

Matisse Pl. Users of this temporary

facility park on both sides of the

local roads causing traffic issues

on these streets due to the visibility

issues. There is extremely limited

parking, if any, on-site. Jellie Park

parking is also limited.

“This area has enough ‘acitivty’

groups associated with it and

the current proposal would

mean unknown amounts of

traffic, noise, safety and security

problems.”

– Michelle Macaulay

“I support the facility going to

a community sports group, but

not a large franchise. The tenant

shouldn’t cost the ratepayer

money, but not be about pure

profit. I like how Wharenui

Pool supports a local and small

affordable gym like Boxfit

Brothers and there could be

opportunities for people with

passions to operate a business

within the space.”

– Tessa Smith

“I agree that the facility should

be made available to community

groups, as long as those groups

would enable the building to be

booked and used by others for

special events. I would also be

interested in understanding if

there could be opportunities for

use of the park and facility as a

joint booking for some events.”

– Claire Fletcher

“As nearby residents, the

large number of cars parked

in Chateau Drive has totally

degraded and devalued the

residential area, with car

movements from 5.30am to late

evening. Not helped by car horns,

loud music, dropped rubbish,

loud talking and speeding.

“The parking on both sides

of our street has narrowed to

a dangerous level. We were

informed from the beginning

this was a temporary building

and have been hugely looking

forward to its removal.

“It is a shock and extremely

disappointing to read consideration

being given to ongoing use.”

– P J and D J McGill

“This would be a fabulous

venue for Delta Rhythmic

gymnastics.”

– Cassandra Robb

“It definitely should be used

for a community centre, I

would have loved to have run

something like that there. Our

youth surely do need something

to keep them occupied. I look

forward to see what becomes of

it.”

– Shalenah Evans

CONSULTATION: Community sports

groups have already shown interest

in leasing the Apollo Project Centre

to take advantage of its indoor courts,

gyms and office spaces.

“We wish to object to the

complex being used for more

community recreation activities

because Chateau Drive is already

cluttered with parked cars and

people speeding dangerously

along at all hours on the way to

the building.

“Unless you can guarantee all

access will be from Greers Rd

and/or Ilam Rd, and parking will

be on the property, we strongly

disagree with the proposal to go

ahead.”

– Jan and Colin Notley

Most elder abuse is

hidden in plain sight

Abusers are often someone close – A family member, a caregiver,

someone trusted. If you’re concerned about how someone is being treated,

it’s OK to help.

YALDHURST HEALTH

22 SIR JOHN MCKENZIE DRIVE, YALDHURST

Wellbeing begins with feet

The feet are every person’s foundation. Your feet

hold your bones, muscles and organs which creates the

structural posture by which a body operates. Aching feet,

bunions, corns, sore heels, hard to cut nails, ingrown

toenail surgeries, sports injuries, sprains, and strains in

addition to a variety of other foot related

issues can be addressed at Gudchi Feet

Podiatry.

The philosophy at Gudchi Feet Podiatry

encompasses more than only foot care.

Their mantra involves the overall inclusive

care for the entire wellbeing of a person’s

body systems. By understanding how all

the systems work together and how they

Podiatrist Jacky Lee

affect each other is a primary requirement for optimised

health.

By having this understanding of the important

foundational structure your feet offer provides, a

whole picture can be established to set up a latitude of

understanding and identify the best contenders

pertaining to your personalised lifestyle plan

for optimised health.

At Gudchi Feet Podiatry the main goal is to

realign the imbalance of your lower limb and to

provide stability which will create a balance for

the systems and a better quality of life.

Podiatrist Jacky Lee loves what he does.

He enjoys working with clients and helping

them to understand the importance of their

musculoskeletal structure including the

importance of the muscles and bones of the

feet. He likes to provide education during each

step of your journey because the more you

know, the more you understand, and the more

you can determine the results of certain health situations.

This information offers insight of how to work best with

your body and how to potentially avoid many instances

of discomfort.

“It is important to understand why a situation occurred

because patients can then understand how I am leading

them back to functionality. Recovering from an injury is

also a time of self-discovery.” Jacky says.

Gudchi Feet Podiatry has recently moved into the

brand new Yaldhurst Medical Clinic with Inspire Health

and several other medical professionals which is located

at 22 Sir John Mckenzie Drive, Yaldhurst.

Feet are used to walk, run, bike, climb, jump and so

much more. Feet are taken for granted until something

Damaged building

uneconomic to repair

• From page 1

The city council has been

quite strict with building

standards on private land

so he was pleased it was

also dealing with a building

of its own.

The centre had been seen

a cause of concern to the

residents association for

around nine years.

“It’s been especially bad

for the last three years,

with the graffiti artists taking

over the building, and

the smashed windows.

“We’re just happy to see

it gone.”

The city council has

engaged contractors

Taggarts to demolish the

badly-damaged two-storey

building.

City council head of

facilities, property and

said the demolition would

take about 12 weeks to

complete.

Six tips to get the most efficiency

out of your heat pump

Make sure it’s clean

A clean heat pump filter will help your

heat pump run more effectively and

efficiently.

Give your filter a good clean as we head

into the cold season, and ideally clean your

filters once a month during winter.

Know your temperatures

Set your heat pump temperature to 18

deg C or above to help fight damp and

mould, and below 21 deg C to save on

power.

Heat where you eat/sleep, play

Heat pumps use the most energy

when they’re getting a room up to a set

temperature. Heat the rooms you use

most often.

Close the doors to unused rooms

to avoid heating unrequired space (ie

spare bedrooms etc).

Don’t run your heat pump

constantly

A lot of people believe that keeping a

heat pump running 24/7 is an efficient,

cost-effective way to heat their home.

Doing this will use more energy than

only using it as required.

Fixed Price.

Full Service.

Guaranteed

Quality.

Now,

that’s hot.

Use your timer

Set your timer to turn on just before you

get home from work and/or before you

wake.

Set or turn off when you leave for the

day and before retiring to another room.

Avoid an expensive mistake

If you are looking to buy a heat pump,

talk to the experts.

Consider energy star ratings, location,

and the size required for the area/s you

wish to heat.

hot water repair or upgrade.

Prepare your

home for winter

Minimise your heat loss

Insulation

Without insulation, approx. 30-35%

of the heat loss occurs through the roof,

20-30% through windows, and 20-25%

through walls. The floor and air leakage

make up the balance.

Drafts

Seal up any unused openings such as cat

doors and open fireplaces.

Use draft stopping tape around windows

and tape, door ‘sausages or a rolled-up

towel for doors.

Double glaze windows, there is a wide

range of DIY Window insulation kits that

are both effective and economical.

Downlight fittings

Some modern LED downlights have

insulation fitted over them, instead of

leaving a gap for fire prevention.

Super-efficient LEDs use less energy

and can save lighting costs. Ask a lighting

specialist or registered electrician for

advice.

Simple steps to reduce dampness

Air your home regularly

Open doors and windows for 10-15

minutes each morning or use a ventilation

system.

Use energy efficient, low

emissions heaters

Heat rooms being used to at least 18˚C.

Don’t use unflued or portable gas heaters.

Use extractor fans

They can help to get rid of moisture in

the bathroom and laundry and use a fan or

rangehood in the kitchen.

Use lids on pots when you cook

This helps to stop the steam escaping.

Turn on the fan before a shower

or bath

Shut the bathroom door and open the

window slightly. Afterwards, leave the fan

running until the moisture clears.

Move furniture away from walls in

winter

A 10cm gap discourages mould

(especially on external walls).

Dry washing outside

Use a washing line or rack in the garage

or a under covered area.

Leave wardrobes slightly open

A little air circulation discourages mould

growing on fabric.

Buy — sell — reside with

peace of mind

Any property, old or new, can have

hidden problems. It is important to know

the true condition of your current, or

potential property.

An AA House Check report can provide

you with the confidence to buy or sell with

no surprises.

Property examinations provide detailed

room by room inspections, including

roof cavity, insulation, flooring, electrical,

plumbing, drainage, hot water systems,

roofing, decks, paths and driveways,

garages, asbestos identification and more.

A BOINZ accredited building surveyor

can also carry out moisture checks,

residential foundation inspections,

earthquake damage repair assessments and

methamphetamine testing.

Serving Canterbury homeowners,

landlords and prospective home buyers for

over 15 years AA House Checks have your

house inspection needs covered.

Retrofit Insulation

Specialists

Retrofitting insulation in your ceiling,

walls and underfloor will make your home

warmer, healthier and more energy efficient.

An investment you cant afford to be without.

Keep cosy with

RD Petroleum

this winter

Taking to the stage

for a good cause

Betsy Macdonald (above), along with other staff members at St

Margaret’s College, put their pride and dignity on the line to perform

on stage at a fundraising concert. Student mentors helped to mould

some of the staff members into stars. The event raised $8000 for the

school’s charity – Educating Girls Globally. The money will be used to

help complete a new school in Malawi in southeast Africa. The school

will give children from the nearby Dzaleka Refugee Camp, which houses

more than 32,000 displaced people, the chance to get an education.

PHOTOS: PETRA MIGNEAU

RD Petroleum (RDP) is a familiar sight

for farm and rural residents around the

Canterbury region, however now days urban

residents also enjoy the same excellent

customer service for which RDP is known for

in rural communities, through their home

heating diesel.

RDP began its home heating diesel delivery

service to the lower South Island’s main urban

centres of Christchurch, Timaru, Dunedin

and Invercargill a number of years ago.

Customer demand has continued to increase

year upon year, and RDP has responded

with specialised improvements to its delivery

equipment.

The trucks that deliver RDP’s home heating

diesel in each urban centre are drawn from

the company’s extensive vehicle fleet. This

means they have the latest communication

and GPS tracking technology on board, so

the operations team always know where they

are and how far away they are from their next

delivery stop.

RDP’s home heating diesel trucks come

equipped with a specially-designed hose,

through which the diesel is pumped from

the truck into house tanks. The length of

the hose allows the trucks to access tanks

without having to enter the property, avoiding

damaging the driveway. RDP is the place to

go if you require diesel conveniently delivered

to your home and as a loyal RDP customer

you’re offered discounted pricing and can

become eligible for value-added benefits.

For all enquiries please phone

Get the balance

right this winter

Enviro Master has been helping

Cantabrians get the balance right when it

comes to choosing the perfect heat pump or

air conditioning system for their home or

office since 2002.

Their team of expert sales people, qualified

electricians, heating and refrigeration

engineers, help to supply and install

Christchurch’s widest range of heat pumps,

and because they have no affiliation with any

one brand, you can be assured their advice

on the benefits and differences between each

product is unbiased.

They will recommend the most energyefficient

and cost-effective system for your

individual situation, and will have you

regulating the heat in your home or office in

no time.

Nowadays, customers are often wanting

whole home solutions to be able to maintain

even temperatures throughout the home both

in Winter and Summer. This can be achieved

by using ducted systems or multi systems

and Enviro Master are experts in designing,

installing and commissioning these systems.

Help is currently available with a

government subsidy covering 80 per cent of

the cost of a new heat pump up to $3000.

The subsidy is part of the Warmer Kiwi

Homes initiative and is available to Home

owner/occupiers with a Community Services

Card, a SuperGold combo card or who live in

a low-income area as determined by deciles

8-10 on the New Zealand Deprivation Index.

The applicant’s home must also have been

built before 2008, have insulation up to code

(insulation subsidies also available) and have

no fixed heating in a living area, such as an

existing operational heat pump or fireplace.

With new regulations coming in for

Landlords to provide heating in rentals,

now is a great time to beat the deadline.

Inadequate heating and ventilation can lead

to mould growth and dampness in your

property, leading to costlier maintenance

and an unhealthy living environment.

Providing a fixed heater with a higher heat

output and lower running costs, like a heat

pump, will enable your tenants to heat the

area effectively. Enviro Master are well

experienced with the Tenancy Services

software to ensure that you are meeting your

requirements.

To ensure you choose the right system for

your home or business, one of Enviro Master’s

experts will visit to assess your individual

situation, offer advice and answer any

questions you may have. This consultation

is at no cost to the customer and is always

provided before a heat pump is installed.

Anyone wondering about their eligibility

for a subsidised heat pump are welcome to

get in touch for details and help with the

application process. To find out more, call

Enviro Master on (03) 366 0525 or visit

their website www.enviromaster.co.nz.

What makes a great

Heat Transfer System?

There are a number of Heat Transfer

systems on the market. Smooth-Air

ventilation specialists offer a range of HTU

Heat Transfer Units with carefully selected

components to optimise the system:

They use insulated duct to transfer the

heated air with as little heat loss as possible.

The fan moves sufficient air for the distance

and number of rooms, without being noisy.

The diffusers send the heat to the floor, not to

skim the across the ceilings. All components

are good quality - designed to operate for

years without problems.

Smooth-Air’s HTUs come in a range of

options: One to four rooms, with or without

thermostat and with a choice of grilles and

diffusers. HTUs improve energy efficiency

in your house, as you are using excess

heat. They have low power consumption

- only 80watts for the three room system.

Circulating air through the house also

reduces the risk of damp.

You can also choose the HTU version with

downjet diffusers, which throw the warm

air downwards to the floor. These downjet

diffusers can also be adjusted to regulate

which room receives the most warm air.

An average size living room requires 2-4 kw

of heating, yet appliances such as log burners

generate heat in the region of 10 -20kw. This

leaves an excess of 8 -16kw of heat which

sits at high level in the heated room, usually

above door level.

Heat transfer units work best where very

hot air has ‘stratified’ into a layer near the

ceiling. So heat pumps, which circulate warm

air around the room with no layering, are

not suitable as a heat source by themselves.

However, if you have both log burner and

a heat pump, heat transfer systems with

thermostat can work very well: The heat

pump stops operating once the heat from the

fire has heated the room, and the heat transfer

kicks in above this point, once there is a layer

of hot air at the ceiling.

with your Heat Transfer, as well as any other

ventilation requirements.
