Bid to solve northern

corridor traffic issues

• By Fiona Ellis

PEOPLE WHO live near the

Christchurch Northern Corridor

have the opportunity to be part of

a solution to the traffic problem.

Options in the area bordered by

Innes Rd, Hills Rd, Warrington St

and Cranford St will be developed

by the city council based on a

public survey, along with traffic

data and transport network

priorities.

City council

acting head of

transport Lynette

Ellis said traffic

issues in the area

were “complex”.

The corridor

opened last

Lynette

Ellis

year, linking

the Northern

Motorway to

Cranford St and QEII Drive at a

cost of $290 million.

Traffic calming trials on Francis

Ave and Thames St were carried

out earlier this year to address an

increase in traffic caused by this

link.

Leaking water top ticket concern,

damaged bins close second

• By Fiona Ellis

DEALING WITH leaky water

supplies and damaged bins,

as well as issues relating to

residential property files, are

the top three concerns for the

Fendalton-Waimairi-

Harewood Community Board

area.

A ticket report has revealed

a breakdown of issues that

residents have contacted the city

council about between June 19

and July 18.

In that time, 1639 tickets, or

jobs, were completed within an

average of 3.2 days.

Issues fell in a range of

categories, including transport,

wheelie bins, graffiti, and three

waters council assets.

Leaky water supplies came

out on top with 167 tickets,

while damaged bins was second

with 159 tickets and residential

property files third with 158

tickets.

Phone, email and walk-ins

were the most common way

residents chose to contact the

council, at 55 per cent.

ISSUES: Leaking water supplies and damaged bins most concern residents in the

Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board area.

Meanwhile, 31 per cent

used Hybris Online and the

remaining 14 per cent used Snap

Send Solve. At the conclusion of

the report last month, 429 tickets

were still open, or not completed.

Attack raises safety concerns at park

• By Fiona Ellis

A RACIALLY motivated attack

on two Japanese teenagers

opposite Bishopdale Park on

May 31 has led Ilam MP Sarah

Pallett to raise the issue of

increasing safety in the area.

Two youths have since been

referred to Youth Aid in relation

to the incident, police confirmed.

Pallett spoke about the issue

during the

public forum

segment at a

recet Fendal-

ton-Waimairi-

Harewood

Community

Sarah Pallett

Board meeting.

She had spoken

with the victims, a 14-yearold

boy and his 17-year-old sister,

who were out running when they

were attacked at about 5pm.

There had been no CCTV footage

of the attacker, which made it

difficult for police to find them,

she said.

“One of the things I thought

that we could potentially achieve

together . . . is to look at what we

could do with regard to either

putting cameras there or increasing

the lighting because it’s very

poor.”

People, especially women,

would not feel safe exercising

in the park or near it on

dark winter evenings, she

said.

Reporting on the attack at

the time, The Star wrote the

attackers tried to trip up the

14-year-old and then placed him

in a headlock before punching

his left eye.

The sister was also kicked in

the chin as she fell while trying

to protect her brother.

The victims’ mother, Naomi

Suzuki, said she was concerned

lack of security cameras would

mean the attackers would not be

identified.

Board chairwoman Bridget

Williams said the board’s

Community Safety Initiative

would investigate the safety

concerns of Bishopdale

residents starting with a

survey to be carried out later in

the year.

“Bishopdale’s been put on the

list.”

It would be interesting to see

what public feedback would

come from that, she said.

Christchurch North Community

Patrol chairman Sam

Hall said the

park was not

specific concern to the patrol,

although they frequently drove

past it.

He hoped the patrol presence

was a deterrent to potential

wrong-doers.

“You never know what you’ve

prevented.”



BECAUSE YOUR

FEET MATTER

Belfast School students are

hoping to visit Parliament but

need a little help to get there. I’m

hosting a breakfast for local

businesses and residents to raise

money for the school so that

students will be able to have their

Wellington trip. Tickets will cover

the cost of breakfast and include a

$20 donation to Belfast School. If

this sounds like something you’d

be keen to support, please get in

touch with my offices, and I will

also be advertising the event

through the school.

My petition calling for the 70mkh

speed limit on Marshland Road to

be reinstated will be presented in

October to the Christchurch City

Council. After council lowered the

speed limit, a regular user of the

route approached me to help

gauge public support for a

petition. I conducted a poll and

within the first 24 hours realised


this was a significant issue.

Neither the accident stats nor

public feedback supported the

change – this was merely the

cheap solution. We launched an

online petition calling for the

70kmh limit to be reinstated. The

petition will be presented to the

urban transport committee and I

will be asking whether the council

has been let down by a lack of

Government funding. You can still

sign the petition at

It was great to connect with our

University of Canterbury students

during their recent RE-O-Week

and to see how engaged they are

with issues on the ground. I’m

looking forward to speaking next

week at UC’s Political Science

Society as part of the panel of

political figures.

Protector of environment earns teen artist award

“They had a larger impact on the

surrounding streets than anticipated.”

An area-wide solution was needed,

Ellis said.

“All options are currently on the

table and range from the installation

of passive traffic calming measures

[such as] chicanes to restricting

movements along specific streets.

“We won’t know what the options

are until we have finished the survey

and undertaken some design work,”

she said.

The downstream effects of the

corridor had prompted 95 residents

from the area to contact the council

since the corridor opened, including

15 residents from Flockton St and

Francis Ave.

The survey was made with this

feedback in mind, Ellis said.

The survey will be open until

St Albans Residents Association’s

Emma Twaddell said this was a

“I’d encourage people to fill it out,”

Twaddell said.

As a community activator, she

“I’m really happy that

I had a chance to design

said.

“Art has always permeated

all aspects of my life. I

just love to create.”

She planned to continue

her creative path by studying

fine arts, either at Canterbury

University or Massey.

Rebekah Tisch, art director at

Weta Workshop, said selecting a

winner was a challenge.

“While our primary interest

was in the images of the creature

“Molly’s design and description

The wareware was a great mix

plenty of interesting details, she

said.

“I thoroughly enjoyed the idea,

New kit for men’s

netball team

KAIAWA SPORTS netball

teams can step onto the

court with confidence this

season after receiving a

grant to buy all the gear

they need, including

training and match balls,

bibs, spot markers, gear

bags.

Kaiawa Sports started

less than a year ago as a

netball team for adult men.

Club administrator

Nikki Schwass applied for

the ANZ netball grant because

as a brand new club

they had “nothing.”

Schwass was thrilled to

receive the grant.

“It means we can get

good quality gear out to all

of our teams . . . it means

we can spread the love

across the club,” she said.

Welcoming 2021 meant

bringing in their first

women’s team alongside

their men’s and mixed

team.

Led by Naze Silbery the

players have achieved new

heights in men’s netball,

with their eyes on climbing

the ranks.

Their men’s A team

played the curtain-raiser

match at the Tactix ANZ

Premiership home game

on July 25 where they narrowly

missed the win.

Said Schwass: “The level

we want to attain for our

men is really high. We’re

creating an environment

where we can develop

national representatives for

men’s netball.”

Low Supply

& High Demand!

Now is a fantastic time to sell.

worth in the current market?

The club drew a lot of the

Māori and Pacific Island

talent from the region with

the club boasting players

across the A, B and C

Christchurch representative

teams.

“It’s given an

opportunity to a lot of men

who have never thought

of playing netball in their

lives. Naze brings a lot of

guys from touch over to

netball too,” said Schwass.

“EDDY”, a much adored 10 month

old Tabby was rushed to McMaster

& Heap vets on a Sunday, after

alerting his owners that something

was up when he hopped on their

bed early one morning and started

moaning loudly. One of the owners

had worked as a nurse for us, so she

didn’t waste time in getting Eddy

seen. Steve Heap was called in when

it was clear there was a severe injury

to Eddy’s right eye.

When Steve saw Eddy, he identified

a ruptured right eye with a large

piece of lens protruding through

the cornea. This would have been

excruciatingly painful. A penetrating

eye injury was suspected but the

cause was not initially apparent. He

was immediately anaesthetised,

placed on intravenous fluids and

given pain medications. Steve

became suspicious of a slug pellet

injury due to the unusual corneal

injury and the fact the lens had

totally exploded! Steve hadn’t seen

anything like this in 30 years of

Ophthalmology practice.

McMaster & Heap

Veterinary practice

Sad case of animal abuse

The lens material was removed by

a machine that performs cataract

surgery - A Phacoemulsification

Machine. The eye was irrigated and

the corneal wound sutured carefully.

Then the eye was reinflated. X-rays

performed identified the slug pellet

and Steve realised he’d been shot

through the eye. The bullet was

lodged in a downward angle, and it

blew out the animal’s lens, meaning

Eddy would have been looking

directly at the offender at close

range.

Suffice to say Eddy is recuperating

excellently being cared for round the

clock by his dedicated owners. Steve

thinks the surgical eye is comfortable

and Eddy is back to his crazed, manic

antics. He won’t see in the eye but

we are hoping he gets to keep his

eye. Once his eye is stable and he’s

recovered , a second surgery would

be advised to remove the slug pellet

that sits very close to his cervical

spine.

Bowling club merger sees rare

parcel of land come up for sale

THE FORMER site of the

St Albans Bowling Club in

Merivale is up for sale.

The 5107 sq m land at

5 Donald Pl, just off St Albans

St, is for sale by deadline private

treaty, closing tomorrow.

Investment sales specialist

Courtney Doig, of Colliers, said

there are few such parcels of land

in Merivale.

“There is a real lack of

large-scale development sites

remaining in this tightly

held Merivale position. The

Residential Medium Density

zoning makes it ripe for a variety

of uses and we’ve seen how much

demand there is for well-located

bare land in Christchurch.

“This is a dress circle

location and presents a unique

opportunity to acquire a

significant land holding

representing a blank canvas

for the seasoned developer or

occupier,” he said.

The merger of the Elmwood

Park and St Albans bowling

clubs has prompted the sale.

The two clubs joined forces

in 2018 and have been using

both facilities since then, but

now they will be solely based on

Tania Bostock

Ben Reid

Elmwood’s nearby Heaton St

site.

“There are a multitude of

development options available

including a large scale residential

multi dwelling, pre-school,

healthcare facility or boutique

retirement village,” Doig said.

The site, with a 60m frontage

onto Donald Pl, is located within

200m of Merivale Mall and

3.5km from the city.

St Albans Bowling Club was

established at Donald Place in

1902. Its pavilion was rebuilt

during the 1968 Wahine storm.

Dwindling numbers prompted

the merger with Elmwood Park,

with the combined membership

now standing at 140.

President Peter Smith said that

while the sale marks the end

of an era, members are excited

about having all facilities located

on site and the amenity a new

pavilion will bring.

Ngaio Marsh resident Lobina (middle) with

her daughters Yvonne (left) and Jackie.

LOBINA IS PART OF A WONDERFUL

COMMUNITY AT NGAIO MARSH

Yvonne and Jackie lovingly say their

Mum Lobina, aged 93, is a sweetie – and

that she fits right in with everyone at

Ngaio Marsh Retirement Village.

Yvonne says her Mum really enjoys the

location of the resthome, within the village

centre, where there is a real mixture of

friendly people around her.

Lobina and her family (her sons, John, Jeffrey

and Thomas, also live in Christchurch)

enjoy the many spaces the village has to

offer including the gardens, the village centre

atrium and the dining room.

“The people are lovely here…everyone

mixes together. It’s really very nice,”

Yvonne says. “Plus, the food is excellent.

The food is really, really good.”

Lobina completely agrees.

From her ground level room Lobina enjoys

views of the village’s beautiful gardens,

including a tree that holds a bird feeder,

which her family has kept stocked with

fresh bird seed.

Lobina came to New Zealand in the mid-

1950s. As part of an immigration assistance

scheme Lobina was able to get an assisted

passage on the Dutch ship SS Waterman.

She met and married Hubert and then

brought up their family of five. At least one of

her children visit her at the village most days

– often around the time of a midday meal or

in the early evening. Jackie loves sitting on

the bed with Lobina for some music, a chat,

and a giggle.

Their traditions of getting together for a

meal date back to Lobina and Hubert having

been a close part of the New Zealand Dutch

community. Upon her arrival, as part of

the assisted passage scheme, Lobina was

employed as a seamstress with a Canterbury

clothing company. Hubert, who passed away

in 1985, worked selling fish in Christchurch

suburbs from P Feron and Sons Seafoods.

Later he bought and maintained rental

properties around Christchurch.

Lobina, Yvonne and Jackie talk fondly

about the long-time family home in

Eversleigh Street, St Albans. Lobina later

lived for a considerable time in Beckenham

with her second husband Ton, who passed

away in 2008, before moving in with her

daughter Jackie and her partner Michael.

When Jackie and Michael took a trip to

Bali, Lobina went to Ngaio Marsh village for

respite care.

She found the care was wonderful, so at the

right moment when a room became available

Lobina moved to the village in July 2019, and

she has never looked back.

Yvonne and Jackie say they love sitting

with their Mum and talking about old

times. Lobina wrote a considerable family

history, in her native Dutch language.

Her five children were brought up bilingual

and love that they can read her memories

back to her.

When they pop into Ngaio Marsh, Jackie

and Yvonne often touch base with staff and

residents they have got to know during their

frequent visits. Jackie says, for example,

one of the young caregivers enquired

about the dance class she attends and

ended up coming along to enjoy one of the

social classes.

Ngaio Marsh Retirement Village has a truly

wonderful community.

CARE WHEN YOU NEED IT

Ngaio Marsh village has got you covered with a range of

living and care options. We’re dedicated to caring for you

now and into your future; from the extra support of a

serviced apartment to resthome and hospital care.

RD Petroleum

this winter

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

NOR’WEST NEWS

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.

HOME & HEATING

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 now in place for

Landlords to provide heating in rentals, it’s

time to ensure you are meeting the new

standards.

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

The facts about home ventilation

Balanced Pressure

vs Positive Pressure

Under the New Zealand Building Code,

all buildings, including residential, need

to be suitably ventilated, either with

opening windows or forced ventilation.

Clause G4.1 states: “The objective of this

provision is to safeguard people from

illness or loss of amenity due to lack of

fresh air.” There are many benefits to

forced, or mechanical, ventilation over

opening windows, including warmth,

security, reduction of outside noises and

reduction of condensation.

Traditional domestic ventilation systems

are ‘positive pressure’. They bring air in

from outside via the roof space and force

the stale air out through gaps around

windows and doors. The incoming air

from these systems

has to be heated

or cooled to keep

the house warm in

winter or cool in

summer.

The Smooth-

Air HEX390 is a

‘balanced pressure’

system. It extracts

air from the house

and at the same

time brings in

fresh air. These

two streams of air

pass through a heat

exchanger, which

warms incoming air in winter and cools in

summer if air conditioning is being used.

This means that up to 80% of the energy

which would be wasted using a traditional

positive pressure system is recovered,

resulting in significant energy savings and

therefore lower heating or cooling costs.

Until recently, balanced pressure

ventilation systems have been considerably

more expensive than traditional positive

pressure systems. However, with Smooth-

Air’s unique manufacturing capabilities, a

HEX390 balanced pressure system can be

installed for a similar price as a traditional

positive pressure system.
