Agroundswell of protest in NC

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Groundswell Waimak is going to town.

It will roll in convoy into Christchurch

from the north, to join two other convoys

coming from the west and the south

during Groundswell NZ’s Mother of All

Protests on Sunday, November 21.

Meanwhile Amberley will host

convoys coming in from the south, west

and north, in the Hurunui district with

the aim of filling the main street.

They will park up in the vicinity of

council chamber to listen to speakers

and Groundswell NZ’s 1.35pm radio

broadcast.

Groundswell Waimak says anyone can

join the convoy on their tractors, bikes,

in their utes, and cars to ‘‘vent their

frustrations’’ at unworkable

Government regulations, with the Three

Water Reforms being at the top of the

agenda. ‘‘Enough is Enough’’ they say.

The three convoys will meet at the

Archway over State Highway One near

the airport and roll on down the west

end of Memorial Avenue, between

Burnside Park and the motorway

overbridge, and park up by 1pm in time

to listen to abroadcast at 1.35pm from

Groundswell NZ.

An organiser Shelley Drummond says

the Waimak convoy will have its origins

at Cust starting at 10.30am.

It will travel to Rangiora with other

vehicles joining in, before splitting, with

some heading to Woodend to pick up

part of the convoy there, while others

make their way to Tram Road, via

Flaxton Road.

It is expected all will converge at the

Tram Road lights before travelling to

Christchurch either down the motorway

to the archway, or going via the Cranford

Street section of the motorway and

finding their way across town to

Memorial Avenue.

Organisers hope to get amap

distributed district­wide before

Sunday’s event.

Jamie McFadden, chair of the Rural

Advocacy Network (RNA), which has

aligned with Groundswell NZ, says some

traffic disruption can be expected as

people roll in to Amberley’s main centre

from 12.45pm.

‘‘It is heartening to see mayors and

councillors speaking out strongly

against state theft of our community

assets and the loss of our democracy.

But they need our support,’’ says Mr

McFadden.

The three North Canterbury Mayors,

Marie Black (Hurunui), Dan Gordon

(Waimakariri), and Craig Mackle

(Kaikoura), will speak.

There will be live Facebook feeds on

the Groundswell page, and everyone

will be encouraged to turn on their

radios to listen to aGroundswell

broadcast on Newstalk ZB at 1.35pm.

Mr McFadden says Groundswell NZ is

concerned the loss of democracy and

local representation has been

unprecedented under this current

Government, and now there was the

threat of community water schemes

being taken over by government.

‘‘These schemes were dreamed up by

the community, built by the community

and funded by the community.

‘‘Despite the vast majority of councils

being opposed to the initial voluntary

Three Waters reform proposal, the

government has now decided on

mandatory takeover of control of our

drinking water, wastewater and

stormwater assets.

‘‘The initial consultation process by

the government has proven to be a

sham,’’ says Mr McFadden.

‘‘Councils and communities are being

stripped of their decision making

autonomy as one size fits all state

control seeks to take over. Freshwater

legislation, indigenous biodiversity/

Significant Natural Areas (SNAs) and

now Three Waters reform are all

examples where councils and

communities have lost their decision

making autonomy.’’

Mr McFadden says it is heartening to

see mayors and councillors speaking out

strongly against the loss of community

assets and the loss of democracy.

‘‘But they need our support. This

Sunday, November 21, Groundswell is

calling for the people of New Zealand to

join the Mother of all Protests in

supporting our councils against this

unprecedented state control.’’

Three councils take legal action

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Legal proceedings have been filed in the

Wellington High Court by three district

councils seeking to affirm Local

Government’s rights and obligations as

infrastructure asset owners.

The Waimakariri District Council has

joined the Timaru and Whangarei

District Councils in the legal action,

with aStatement of Claim filed last

Friday.

The action has been prompted by the

Government’s decision to ignore

feedback from their residents on the

Three Waters Reform, and

disappointment at the Government

forging ahead with legislation that will

make it mandatory for councils

nationwide to transfer control of their

three waters infrastructure.

It also seeks adeclaration on whether

it was unlawful for the Government’s

public education campaign on the Three

Waters Reforms to contain ‘‘incorrect or

misleading information in regards to

local council’s rights, obligations and

duties’’.

Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon says:

“We have significant concerns that the

Government is proceeding on the basis

of fundamental misunderstandings of

the democratic importance of its

definitions of Local Government and

asset ownership, and feel that this

process will offer us aclear and shared

understanding of our rights and

obligations for future negotiations.

‘‘These steps are our way of ensuring

we’re continuing to advocate in our

residents best interests,” Mr Gordon

says.

‘‘What we do agree on is that quality

drinking water and better

environmental outcomes are essential

and support the new regulator and

coming regulations.

‘‘What we don’t support is the flawed,

3

and now forced four entity model, when

there are anumber of alternatives and

viable delivery models that would be

supported by ratepayers across New

Zealand.

“We believe each asset owner has the

right to determine how best to meet

those requirements.’’

Mr Gordon is also sending aletter to

the Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, on

behalf of over 30 Mayors and councils

across New Zealand, seeking ameeting

to address the ‘‘now forced’’ water

reforms.

“Across the Local Government sector

there was near consensus that the model

now being mandated wasn’t acceptable

to councils or our communities.”

“We are seeking to meet with the

Prime Minister to express this view and

seek more viable approaches to Three

Waters Reform. Iwill make sure to keep

the community updated with our

progress.”

Christchurch stonemason William

Trethewaywas commissioned to sculpt a

and it was unveiled in 1922.

‘‘The Kaiapoi Soldier Memorial is

regarded as one of the finest in New

Zealand forthis kind of memorial,’’Mr

Ayers says.

‘‘Withthis memorial,Tretheway set a

benchmark for otherstofollow around

New Zealand and it was lauded as

The statue is consideredtobea

‘‘realistic’’ portrayal of adigger resting

Starkie was known for his reckless

courage of carrying woundedsolders back

enemy machinegun posts, but alsohis

recklessness away from the battlefield.

Nominated for both the Military Medal

and the Victoria Cross, both were declined

on account of his nine courtsmartial for

striking officers and drunkenness.

Although fromSouthland, he had a

Mr Cooper says.

Duties for police officersduring WW1

included intelligencegathering,

He says 158 police officers, or 18

percent, did resign fromthe force to enlist.

Hurunui warns of threat to local democracy

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The threat to democracy was top of the

agenda at aThree Waters Reform

protest at Omihi in North Canterbury on

Sunday.

Rained failed to dampen the turnout,

with around 150 people rolling into the

Omihi Domain and parking up in front of

the embankment.

Covid­19 restrictions confined most to

their cars, so abit of adownpour had

little effect on those gathered.

The Hurunui District Council ensured

everyone could hear with an impressive

line­up of loud speakers, umbrellas for

those speaking, and aroving

microphone to give everyone achance to

have asay.

People tooted, rolled down their

windows and cheered, when Hurunui

Mayor Marie Black and chief executive

Hamish Dobbie, spoke on ‘‘local

democracy being sold down the drain’’.

There were no holds barred, the

Government copped alot of criticism

from those gathered, many seeing the

Government as thumbing its nose at

democracy —albeit in much stronger,

and at times unprintable terms.

There were gasps when Mr Dobbie

said the Government was only offering

the council 7c in the dollar for its three

waters infrastructure, just a$10 million

drop in the bucket for their $150m of

assets.

Mrs Black said the council was not

opposed to change, but ‘‘change must

bring betterment’’.

‘‘We don’t see betterment in this

reform and now the relationship with

government has been tarnished and the

trust has been eroded,’’ she said.

Local authorities owned and control

assets on behalf of their communities,

and the assets reflected the investment

by generations of ratepayers.

The council didn’t accept the case for

change for its district, did not believe

centralisation of community assets

without recompense was morally fair,

and considered the convoluted

governance and ownership system

proposed by the Minister of Local

Government, Nanaia Mahuta provided

no direct local input into or control over

the water services.

She urged people to use the select

committee process to have their say,

exercise their democratic right and

convince the government that the case

for change is unfounded.

Mr Dobbie assured speaker Bill

Dowle the council had enough in its

coffers to meet the cost and regulations

for its Three Waters Reforms, talked of

smoke and mirrors being used by the

Government to promote its reform, and

warned once Three Waters assets were

out of council ownership they were

vulnerable to being sold off and

privatised.

He said his council had agreat

relationship with Ngai Tahu which was

not pushing for control of Three Waters

assets, and the Scottish model the

Government was basing its reforms on

were flawed in the New Zealand setting.

‘‘It is an asset grab. Your assets are

being stolen. Your must speak out now,’’

said Mr Dobbie.

A24­berthmarina,townhouses,business

and event space,are beingproposed for

Kaiapoi.

The Waimakariri District Council is

partnering with local developer William

Hill Consulting Ltd to investigate the

concept in the heart of the town.

AMemorandum of Understanding has

been signed between the developer and

council, to explore the concept on land

marked for regeneration afterthe

Canterbury earthquakes.

The 2.9 hectare site sits adjacent to the

Kaiapoi River behind the Ruataniwha

Kaiapoi Civic Centreopposite Countdown

in HiltonStreet .

The site was transferred from Crown

ownership to the councilinJune 2018, and

set aside for futuretown centre expansion

and mixed­use development.

Aprojectworking group was tasked with

developing options for the site,and chose

the proposal fromashortlist of two,asit

best alignedwith the objectives in the

Waimakariri Residential Red Zone

Recovery Plan and the KaiapoiTown

Centre Plan.Both documents have been

endorsedbythe community.

MayorDan Gordonsays council is

excited to be sharing the proposal with the

Kaiapoi and Waimakariri community.

‘‘This marina proposal presents ahuge

opportunity to continue looking at ways to

revitalise and bring investment to

Kaiapoi’s town centre.

‘‘Alongside other already completed

developments, like the marine precinct,

Kaiapoi has an opportunity to become

New Zealand’s mosticonic riverside

location, and the council wants to work

with businessesthat sharethis vision.’’

Mr Gordon saysalot of land in Kaiapoi

was significantly damagedbythe 2010

earthquakes, and red­zoned due to the

likelihood that future house­by­housesite

remediationwouldn’t be aviable option.

‘‘Sincethen council has been working to

transform the affected land,bycreating

fantastic community spaces like the

Honda Forest, BMX track, softball

diamonds, and dog parks, and now this

proposal seeks to realise opportunities for

mixed­use business andresidential

activities.’’

The development is subject to afull

feasibilitystudy and engineering

investigations, includingall resource

consent processes and approvals,before

the land is sold to ensure thatthe agreed

concept plan can be deliveredin

reasonable timeframes. William Hill

Consulting's director, Jedd Pearce,says

the proposal includes mixed­usebusiness

areas, pedestrian access to the awa (river),

townhouses with some of the bestviews in

Canterbury and space for events.

‘‘We think Kaiapoi can be New

Zealand’s best river town and this marina

would be an integral partofit,’’ saysMr

Pearce.This area would become areal

centre for Kaiapoi’s townshipand attract a

lot of new visitors and residents intothe

However international carbonmarkets

should be used to establishan

international pricefor carbon, which

wouldestablish alevel playing field.

This is important because industries are

simply moving offshore to avoid high

Whilethis would lower our emissions in

that would enable these sortsof

reductions. Our standard of living is only

made possible by accesstoreliable and

this comes fromfossil fuels.New Zealand

the 50% reduction target.

Some suggest we should just use less

our energy consumptionthat will lower

correspondingly lower life expectancy. We

only have to look at the impactof

lockdowns which while they temporarily

estimates this has led to the loss of 2

Races hobbled by Covid

Themuch lovedHurunui Raceand

Gala Day early nextyear has been

cancelled.

The committee metthis week and

decided the financial risk in this

Covid­19 environment was toohigh for

thevolunteergroup staging the event.

The event, which is held every two

years at Medbury, North Canterbury,

hasnow been scheduled to run in 2023.

The track is one of theoldest

racetracks in the country. It is on 40

hectares of recreational reserveand

wasonce part of a1214­hectareblock

of Crown land at theforkofthe Waitohi

andHurunui Rivers.

It wasfirst used forracinginApril,

1874, and in recentyears hasfeatured

harnesshorses, gallopers,stock

horses, clydesdales and ponies in its

racing programme.

Equalisator betting is used where

youare given ahorse rather than

picking your own.

MAYOR CRAIG MACKLE

Vaccinate in time for

Christmas holidays

Ican’thelp focusing on Covid again.

Time is runningout for anyone to get

fully vaccinatedintime for Christmas.

Ican’turge you enoughplease,please

get jabbednow.

It’s not just about ourselves and not

just the oldies and the vulnerable

either–this outbreakshows it affects

peopleofall ages.

I’m worriedhow things will look

when CovidmakesittoKaikoura, not

only for businessesand jobs, but for

each of us and our health.

The less people we see shipped out

to hospitals in Christchurch the better.

Last weekIattended ameeting at the

Medical Centre.

Iamreally impressed with how they

are dealing with everything and trying

to get our community fully onboard

with vaccinations. Let’s all do our bit

for the communityboth young and old.

Let’s all be preparedaswecan –get

vaccinated now.

This week Ihave anotherMayoral

forum to attend.

No doubtalot of it will be afollow up

to the Government’s direction on

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

DearEditor,

The HurunuiCouncilisurging

the Three Waters Reforms proposed by

Government.

The Council stands to loseabouta

responsibility for water to a

Governmentsponsored water entity.

The questionwhichthe council is not

addressing,ishow thenecessary

improvements to the3Waters

infrastructure will be financed if the

Council opts out.

The sweetenertoratepayersfrom the

Government isthatthe cost of

improvementstowater infrastructure

will be borne by the water entity which

Three Waters.

You know my views of how this was

handled. It’s not agood sign for how

things will unfold.

On Sunday we had the new Aquatic

Centre opening –the end of a5year

journeytoreplace the Lions pool.

Despitethe usual long list of things

to do in the leadupitwent really,

really well.

Abig thank you to everyone who has

made this possible, from the council

and the government, which

contributed $1 million each,through to

all the other donors whether it was

cash or timeorsupplies.

And aspecialthanks to the Trustees,

we made it!

The focus shifts now to keepingit

running year on year –and again I

know the community will assist

wherever they can.

What stood out for me on Sunday was

the sound of kid’slaughterechoing

round.Itwas reminder of what this is

all aboutand makes it all worthwhile.

Ihope lots of you makethe most of it

this summer.

willbedealing with amega

bureaucracy with alabyrinthine,

virtually unaccountablegovernance

structure coveringmostoftheSouth

Island.

Thelogicalsolution might be for the

Government to allocate funds for

improvement directly to localcouncils,

but it is apparent that it does not trust

New Zealand’s 67 local authoritiesto

do thejob effectively.

Hurunui has had water problems

which it has struggled with and it is

required to upgrade all of its water

supply to meet health standards by

2024.

Thebottomlineofthis protest is

whether defendingHurunui District

Council’s independencewill becomea

financial burdenonratepayers and

howmuchofaburdenthatcould be.

Housing surprise

By DAVID HILL

The WaimakaririDistrictCouncil has

been‘‘blindsided’’ by the government’s

proposed housingreforms, leaving

planners scrambling to make sense of

it.

The proposedResource Management

(Enabling Housing Supply andOther

Matters) AmendmentBill,announced

lastmonth to addressNew Zealand’s

housingcrisis,could significantly

changethe look of Waimakariri’sfour

maintownsincluding Oxford andhas

implicationsfor theproposed District

Plan.

Mayor Dan Gordon says he receiveda

phone call just onehourbefore the

proposed legislation wasannounced.

‘‘Wehad no advancednotification.

It’sgreattosee the Government andthe

Oppositionworkingtogether,but it

would havebeennice to have gota

heads up,but it is whatitisand we

needtodealwith it.

‘‘Weare working withour Greater

Christchurch partnersand we will be

lookingtospeak to our submission.’’

District planning manager Trevor

Ellis says theproposed legislation

‘‘cameout of the blue’’.

The legislation is expected to

becomelaw beforeChristmas and if it

passes in its present form it willmean

significantchanges for ‘‘tierone’’

councils like Waimakariri and its

GreaterChristchurch partners,asone

of the major urbangrowth areas.

Thismeans Rangiora, Kaiapoi,

Woodend, Pegasus and even Oxford

willbesubjecttonew medium density

residential standards.

‘‘Medium density housing is set to

becomethe default position

everywhere (in urbanareas) under this

legislation,’’ Mr Ellissays

Developers couldbuild threestorey

buildings or multiple unitsonasingle

section under the proposed changes,

plannerCameron Woodsays.

‘‘Fromour discussions with

developers thepotential for having

three small units on the one block is

morelikely, so there willpotentially be

alot more smaller houses,whichwill

changethe character of ourtowns.’’

Medium densityhousingzones are

normally locatedclose to town centres,

schools,public transport and

infrastructure,‘‘soitwill be quite a

blunt change and we havetakena

systematic approach’’, Mr Woodsays.

While theproposed mediumdensity

residential standardsprovide seven

building standards including site

coverage and height restrictions, the

council is concerned rules around

housingdesign arenot included.

‘‘Weare getting advice around the

implicationsofthe legislation and

design is something we are looking at,’’

Mr Gordon says.

‘‘Ifthe government doesn’t do it, we

can lookatdoing it in avoluntary

capacity.’’

The council will proceed withthe

District Plan submission process,

which closesnext Friday, November

26.

‘‘Itmakes it difficult when people are

makingsubmissionsonour proposed

District Plan,but we willkeepin

contactwithsubmitters if thereare any

changes,’’MrEllissays.

Shouldthe legislation passinits

present form, the councilwillbe

required to formally withdrawaspects

of its proposed District Planrelating to

urban housing, and notifynew

provisionsbyAugust 2022.

Hunger relief efforts recognised

By DAVID HILL

The effortsoflocal Lions club members to

relieve hunger has been beenrecognised.

The Oxford and DistrictsLionsClub’s

project to grow potatoes and other

vegetables, whichare supplied to Satisfy

Food Rescue to distribute to North

Canterburyfood banks,has beennamed

this year’s best New Zealand Lions

hunger relief project.

‘‘It’s importantthat activities that the

Oxford and Districts Lions Clubare

involvedinare meaningfuland

deserving,’’ secretary Lindsay Fletcher

says.

‘‘We identified the need within North

Canterbury and through collaboration

with SatisfyFood Rescue and leave the

deserving component to them as subject

matterexperts.

‘‘The Oxford Lions enjoy workingwith

organisations and clubs,assistingthem to

get their projects or initiatives to a

successful conclusion usingahand up not

ahand out approach.’’

Because of Covid­19restrictions, the

OxfordLionswere unable to receive the

award in person.

But the pandemic has not stoppedthe

reliefefforts, whichhave grownenough

food for more than31,000mealssince the

project beganinMay last year.

‘‘We scoped this year’srequirements

during Covid Level 2, and formedasmall

bubble to commence groundpreparation

for the current growingseason,’’ Mr

Fletcher says. ‘‘The intention this season

is to overdeliver on our promisetoSatisfy

Food Rescue, thatisatarget of 20,000kg of

freshvegetables.’’

The Lions havebeen growing

pumpkins, beetroot,rhubarb and beans.

More than1000kg of pumpkins have been

donated to date.

speed limits

EXPERIENCE OXFORD

The North Canterbury News, November 18, 2021

Oxford’s Main Street couldbeset for a

reduced speed limit to 40kph.

The Oxford­Ohoka Community Board

has recommended the adoption of speed

limit changes to 17 roads in Oxford and

Ohoka, including Main Street.

The Waimakariri District Councilwill

now vote on whether to implement

proposed new speed limitsatits

December meeting,after 297

submissionswere received duringa

consultation on adistrict­wide review of

speed limits.

The majority of respondents in the

Oxford­Ohoka ward areafavoured the

proposed speed limit reductions.

But evenifthe council votes in favour

of the new limits,Main Street’sspeed

limit will remainat50kph untilnew

traffic calming infrastructure can be

installed.

Council staff estimate the necessary

infrastructure will cost around $450,000

and this will be consideredaspart of

next year’s annual plan process.

Board chairperson Doug Nicholl says

the safetyofthe area’s ever­growing

population was keyinthe board’s

feedback.

‘‘Theincreaseinhousing density in

Ohoka,caused by subdivision

developments, has meant thatthe 70kph

rural townspeedlimit is now

inappropriate for the numberof

vehicles and people in the area.

‘‘Similarly, Oxford continues to grow

with the town extendingfurther

outwards meaning greater numbers of

vehicles and people,coupled with an

increaseinintersections and access

ways.

‘‘Therisk of severe crashesis

becoming greaterand the high speeds

currently in place are no longersafe or

appropriate.’’

No Oxford welcome for Santa

By DAVID HILL

Covid­19has scuppered the efforts of the

Oxford and Districts Lions to bringa

little Christmas cheer to the community.

The Oxford Lions had hoped to

officiallywelcome SantaClaustotown

in the usual mannernext month,

alongside acommunity fun day at the

Oxford Showgrounds.

But Covid­19 restrictions have made

the eventimpossible,with the proposed

traffic lights system requiring the

checking of vaccination certificates,

presidentPhil Bay says.

The cancellationalso means the

Christmas Wonderland, organised by

the Oxford Community Trust is unable

to go ahead.

Oxford’sChristmas Eve Carolsinthe

Park has also been cancelled.

In the meantime, the Oxford Lions are

turning their attentiontofundraising to

buy anew Lions caravan for selling hot

dogs,hot chips, candyfloss and other

goodies at local events.

‘‘Ourcaravanis26­years­old and these

days you need to haveeftpos, so we need

to have an extra persononboardand

there’s just not enough room,’’hesays.

Two cattlebeasts have beendonated

as prizesbylocal farmers, with the meat

beingraffled off along with other prizes

provided by local businesses.

The Lions are planning to have abusy

2022,beginning withthe second annual

Wingsand Wheels duringthe last

weekend in January.

The event,hostedatDave

McPherson’sCooper’s Creek property,

proved to be asuccesslast yearwith a

display of smallplanes and vintage cars.

No Santa parade ... Covid­19 restrictions mean Father Christmas will not be officially

welcomed to Oxford this year.

PHOTO: FILE

The Lions Caravanwill be out in force

at various eventsnext yearincluding the

Coast to Coast, while agolf parade is

also planned in March.

Last year’s golf paraderaised $15,000

with corporate teams travelling from as

far afieldasAmberley and Ashburton.

After asuccessful mental health

awareness evening organisedbythe

Lions in 2019, with Richard Loe and

Doug Avery, Mr Bay says the committee

is hopingtorun asimilar eventnext

autumn.

‘‘We’vemissed out on abit of stuff this

year with Covid, but we’re hoping to

have some moreevents for the

community next year,’’ Mr Bay says.

The Oxford Lionsare continue to grow

potatoes, pumpkins, corn and zucchini,

which are harvested and donated to

Satisfy Food Rescuetodistribute to

local food banks. Around 23 tonnes of

firewoodwere donated to people in

need during the winter.

Next year the Lions plantohave more

firewoodwhich they can sell as a

fundraiser, while peastraw for gardens

is still availablefor sale.

Students do their bit

to protect mudfish

It was all hands on spades as

tamariki from View Hill

School and helpers planted

350 native seedlings in an

effort to enhance an

endangered Canterbury

mudfish /kowaro habitat.

The planting day was held at

Kowhai Farm with owner

Chris Thomas joined by 64

children, teachers and parent

helpers and community

groups.

Canterbury mudfish are

classified by the Department

of Conservation as the second

most endangered native fish

in New Zealand.

In 2020 kowaro were found

living in the creek running

through the farm.

Kowaro live in wetlands and

slow­moving water ways and

when streams dry out, they

can burrow into damp mud

and survive for several months

until water returns.

Since European settlement,

alot of their habitat has been

drained.

Mr Thomas was keen to see

the area enhanced and a

partnership was formed with

the Working Waters Trust and

View Hill School to carry out a

restoration project for the

endangered fish.

‘‘A highlight of the day was

that everyone got to see the

local kowaro in their natural

habitat, reinforcing the

significance of the work to

protect the habitat,’’ Cr Niki

Mealings says.

Reforms an asset grab

OPINION

WAIMAKARIRI MP MATT DOOCEY

After failing to getlocal councils

on boardtosupport theThree

Waters plan, the government’s

pushtogoahead with legislating

the asset grabofcommunities’

water assets has left Waimakariri

residents furious.

I’vebeeninundated withcalls

and emailssince thegovernment’s

announcement. It was

encouragingtosee theThree

Waters protestinHurunui last

week, we shouldseriously

considerasimilarprotesthere.

Let me know your thoughts.

Havingseen and heardthe

response loud and clear from

ratepayers acrossthe district,its

reallyimportant to me to take

those voicesand views to

Wellington.

Ihave recentlybeen appointed

as oneofNational’s

representatives on the select

committee thatwill hear thisBill

onceitisintroducedinto

Parliament,whereIwill be able to

bring the voicesand viewsof

Waimakariri and Canterbury to

the discussion anddebate, around

the table.

WhatIamhearingnow is the

Billwillbeintroducedinearly

December whichmeansthe

submissionprocess is likelyto

playout overthe holidayperiod.

Thisisparticularly concerning

given the amount of public

interest, and opposition,inthe

ThreeWaters asset grab. Butit

comesasnosurprisethatthe

governmentistrying to hidethe

process fromratepayersgiventhe

waythey have forcedthis

undemocratically on communities

thus far.

Earlier this year Icalledonour

local counciltospeak up on this

issuefor our ratepayers. I

cautionedthatcouncils wouldlose

theircontroloftheir waterassets

if further councilsopted outofthe

plan andIforesaw arisk theLocal

GovernmentMinisterwouldforce

compulsoryparticipation.

Unfortunately,thishas proved

true.

Thevastmajority of

Waimakariri residents opposed

ThreeWaters because theydon’t

want to losecontrolofcommunity

waterassets that have beenpaid

forbylocalratepayers over the

years.Our residents havebeen

outspokenthey do notwant to lose

theirsay on how water services

areprovided.

This is akickinthe guts forour

district’s ratepayers, whohave

throughtheirrates invested

heavily in our water

infrastructuretoachieve great

outcomes andanenviablemodel

formany councilsaround the

country.

To think that all thisinvestment

couldbeundermined by the

government’sfour entityproposal

is gutting,but more than that,its

undemocratic. Forcing something

on local councils against theirwill

goes against everythingelected

representation stands for.

TheMinister has constantly

referred to ‘‘alternatives’’ thatshe

considered, but they werenever

properlyraised with councils.The

broken four­entity model wasthe

only option put on thetable, and

presented as the onlyanswer.

National believesthere are plenty

of othersolutions worthexploring.

We will workinaproper spirit

of partnershipwith councils to

identifythe solutions that work

best for them.

That could be incentivising

collaboration between agroupof

neighbouring councilsthatcould

pool their resourcesand

capabilities,orcontract one

another so thathigh­performing

councils withgoodwater

management practice could

support their neighbours who

mightbefacingchallenges.SubregionalCCOs,orcouncilcontrolled

organisations, could be

bigenough to save money and

achieve economies of scale, but

small enough to remainlocaland

connected,and unlike the

Government’sfour entities, CCOs

wouldreport directlytoelected

councillors, so theywouldbe

vastlymore accountableto

ratepayers.

Whilethere are some

alternativestothe Government’s

proposal,one thing is clear—we

need to continuetoopposethis

with everythingwe’vegot.

Kaikouraphotographer Andrew Spencer’s

attempt to remember the devastating

earthquake of 5yearsago is beingthwarted

by the latest naturaldisaster.

As he prepared to hold alaunchfor his

new book, Remembering Kaikoura

Earthquake,onTuesday evening, a

shipment of books was stuck in Auckland

due to Level 3restrictions.

The projectwas born out of the 7.8

magnitudeearthquakeonNovember 14,

2016.Andrew grabbed his camera and went

out and explored the worldaround him.

‘‘It was kind of areactivething which

turned into adailythingand went for a

month,’’hesays.

‘‘It’s asnapshot of history andwhat was

happening in the town and closetothe town

and along the roadsupthe coast.’’

The photosquickly gained afollowing on

Facebookasex­pats,thosewith family

connections or had visited thetown over

the years,wanting to knowwhat was

happening on the ground. Some of the

photos were captured from ahelicopter

ride whichmade Andrew deeplyaware of

the isolation of the towninthe days and

weeksafter the quake.

His wifeMichelle Spencer, who is a

school principalinBlenheim, was in

Kaikoura at the time of the quake. She flew

back to Blenheim,leaving her car in

Kaikoura.

‘‘I didn’tsee her again for amonth and it

was anine hour trip to takeher car backto

her,’’Andrew says. ‘‘But now it’sanamazing

road, the commute is now an hourand 20

minutes. They’vedone agreatjob for us.’’

The idea for the booksurfaced earlier

this yearwhen KaikouraPaperPlus owner

Mark Fissenden suggested it was time

Andrew did something with his collection

of quake photos.

‘‘He gave me abit of ahurry up, and so I

delved intothe archives and looked at these

pictures Ihaven’t looked at for awhile,’’

Andrew says.

Kim Boyce­Campbell assisted with

writing an introduction and added some

stories to the book,while Ngati Kuri elder

Rawiri Manawatu provided ashortkarakia

‘‘to captureabit of history’’.

Remembering Kaikoura Earthquake,a128

Toot for Tucker to bring Christmas cheer

By DAVID HILL

Toot for Tucker is back in spiteof

Covid­19.

Volunteers will be out in force

on Tuesday, December7,tooting

as partofthe annual food drive in

Kaiapoi,Rangiora, Woodend,

Cust,Oxfordand Amberley.

‘‘We havetobemindful of

Covidthis year,sowehave had to

put afew extra plansinplace, but

it won’t stop us collecting so

please give generously and listen

for those toots,’’organiser Bev

Wright says.

Next month’sfooddrivemarks

11 yearssince the event was first

held in Rangiora in the wake of

the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes.

Once againthe aim is to

restock food banks in the lead up

to Christmas.

‘‘Covid has affectedmany small

businessesand many folk have

had theirhours reduced,’’Bev

says.

‘‘Theruralcommunity has

experienced very bad wind

storms and flooding duringthe

year and as usual the onlything

in ahousehold budgetthat is able

to be reduced, is the amount of

moneyspent on food.

‘‘We still needtopay the

mortgageorrent,insuranceand

petrol, so when it gets hard, our

community food banks /pantries

come into their own.’’

Last year’scollection saw

Kaiapoi gatherarecordhaul to

restock Kaiapoi Community

Support’s community pantry.

Rangiora, Woodend, Custand

Oxford alsorecorded big hauls,

while Amberley reporteda

strongreturnfrom its firsttime

participating.

In the last two years the

Rangiora SalvationArmy food

bank has received awhopping

1500 bags fromcollections in

Rangiora and Woodend.

The Oxford and Cust

collections will go to support the

OxfordCommunity Trust’s food

bank, while the Amberley

collectionwill stock up the town’s

local food bank.

‘‘I continue to be humbled by

the generosity of thecommunity

in their giving,’’Bev says.

‘‘Every year we get more and

more donations, but pleaseknow

that every little bit helps, it stays

local and it’syour friends,

neighbours and community

members thatwill benefit.

‘‘And Imean it’s there for

everyone, so don’t be too proud to

ask for abit of ahand.

‘‘I am told very few people are

regular receivers of foodparcels,

they may needone or twototie

them over, or some casesabit

more help,but it’s genuine

reasons anditisvery much

appreciated.’’

Once again peopleare asked to

supplytheirown bags, so please

do not wait for yourbag to arrive,

Bev says.‘‘Perhaps start now

putting asideafew items each

week readyfor December 7.’’

Bev is grateful for the support

of local community groups, sports

clubs,Fire andEmergency New

Zealand, local newsmediaand

Show continues behind closed doors

By DAVID HILL

Livestock competitions returned to

Canterbury Agricultural Park last week,

but without the usual fanfare.

New Zealand Agricultural Show

general manager Tracy Ahern said

organisers had hoped for aShow Day

crowd of more than 60,000 people, but

had to settle for 350 after the event was

cancelled.

In its place was aweek of livestock

competitions behind closed doors and a

City Farmyard put on for local schools

last Thursday.

This year’s show was meant to

celebrate the New Zealand Sheep

Breeders’ Association’s 125th

anniversary, but president Tom Burrows

says the association opted to postpone

until next year.

Organisers said there were more than

300 sheep entered in the Show Day

competition, around the half the usual

number.

Corriedale sheep breeders were well

represented, with several North

Canterbury farmers among them.

Hawarden farmer Andrew Sidey

enjoyed agood day, placing second to the

premier Corriedale ram hogget, in aclass

of 15.

Mr Sidey is hoping for abetter season,

after last summer’s drought was followed

by awet winter and early spring.

‘‘Our winter crops failed and we had a

cold, wet winter and early spring, so it

was tough going,’’ he says.

‘‘But the pasture has bounced back

quickly and it’s looking quite good, so we

will get abit of hay for next year.’’

Mr Sidey runs 3000 ewes, including 250

Corriedale stud ewes, on his farm at

Mason’s Flat, near Hawarden.

The sheep were joined by alpacas, pigs

and shearing and woolhandling for Show

Day competitions, including the New

Zealand Corriedale Shearing

Presidential rounds ... Canterbury A&P Association president Chris Harris (left) chats to

North Canterbury sheep farmers Murray Sidey, Mark ‘‘Chief’’ Sidey and Ian Stevenson,

Championship.

Boer and dairy goat, and sheep dog

trial events were also held during Show

Week.

Canterbury A&P Association president

Chris Harris could be set to have the

longest stint in the show’s top job.

Mr Harris was meant to be last year’s

show president and says he may try for

third time lucky next year.

‘‘I’m starting to think Imight be the

jinx, actually, but Iwon’t try to take all

the blame. Covid certainly hasn’t helped.

‘‘There’s talk of it. Ithink Iprobably

might deserve areal show, Ihope so.

‘‘It’s not the right way to be the longest

serving president, but we’ll see.’’

The former New Zealand show

jumping representative was unable to

compete for the first time, with no

equestrian event held this year.

Mr Harris says the association will

need to draw down on aloan from

Christchurch City Council to cover its

losses from this year.

‘‘We will be relying on avery good show

for the next couple of years to get back in

the black.

‘‘Any which way we can get people

through the gate, we will be happy.’’

Record number of young sires

Arecord number of youngbulls have joined

Twenty­sixyoung, genomically selected

this spring, up from 23 bulls lastyear and 17

the year before.

daughters now being milked on farms

aroundthe country.

‘‘The record numberofyoung bulls

graduating into our PremierSires teams

this year demonstrates the accuracy and

value in using genomicselectioninour

breeding scheme,’’ LIC livestock selection

manager Simon Worth says.

‘‘Based on thesebulls’ DNA andancestry

we predictedthey wouldproduce

phenomenal dairy cows, and that haswell

and truly shown itself to be true as their

daughters are now beingmilked with great

results.’’

Mr Worthsays this year’sspring bull

graduates are now some the most

genetically superior sires for AB thatNew

Zealand has to offer.

The bulls took out six of the top seven

spotsinthe industry’s Ranking of Active

Sires(RAS) list,whichranks bulls from all

breedingcompanies according to their

Breeding Worth.

Two of the bulls, KiwiCrossWerders

Premonition and HolsteinFriesian

Waimata SB Ransom­ET, have also

secured the numberone position for their

respectivebreed on the RAS list.

Mr Worth says he can’tremember a

graduation rateashigh as this in the 18

yearshehas been with LIC.

‘‘This is really gratifying for us withthe

work we do, from the contractmating

through to bull team selection,and

ultimately great news for New Zealand

dairyfarmers.’’

Sundees Sonistrained at Woodend

Beach by John’swife, Jenna Dunn and his

father, Robert,who is based in Auckland,

training their Pukekohe team, and was

unable to attendthe meetingbecauseof

Auckland’s Covid 19 lockdown restrictions.

talented trainer in his own right who is a

stablehand in theDunn team andalso

shoes the gelding.

Sundees Son was bred by Colin Hair and

is owned by Colin andhis wifeNancy,of

Kaiapoi.

Colin saiditwas ‘‘verydifficult to

comprehend and come to gripswiththe

magnitude’’ of SundeesSon’s bigwin.

‘‘It has beenanemotionaljourney and

He is not sure what is nextfor Sundees

‘‘Not many trottershave donethatsothat

‘‘We willsit downwith Robert, John,

Kaiapoi’s Rivertown Identity Enhanced by

New Marina Concept

Waimakariri District Council will partner with local

developer William Hill Consulting Ltd to investigate

amarina concept for Kaiapoi.

AMemorandum of Understanding has been

signed between the developer and Council,

which will explore the possibility of amarina, as

well as business, event and residential space

built onland marked for regeneration aer the

Canterbury earthquakes.

The 2.9ha site sits adjacent to the Kaiapoi River at

the heart of the Town Centre. It was transferred

from Crown ownership to the Council in June 2018,

and set aside for future town centre expansion and

mixed-use development.

Aproject working group was tasked with

developing options for the site, ultimately

choosing the proposal from ashortlist of two

as it best aligned with the objectives in the

Waimakariri Residential Red Zone Recovery

Plan and the Kaiapoi Town Centre Plan –both

documents having had their vision endorsed by

the community.

Mayor Dan Gordon says Council is excited to

be sharing the proposal with the Kaiapoi and

Waimakariri community.

“This marina proposal presents ahuge opportunity

to continue looking at ways to revitalise and bring

investment to Kaiapoi’s town centre.

“Alongside other already completed developments

like the marine precinct, Kaiapoi has an

opportunity to become New Zealand’s most iconic

riverside location, and the Council want to work

with businesses that share this vision.

“A lot of land in Kaiapoi was significantly damaged

by the 2010 earthquakes and ‘red-zoned’ due to

the likelihood that future house-by-house site

remediation wouldn’t be aviable option.

“Since then Council have been working to transform

the affected land by creating fantastic community

spaces like the Honda Forest, BMX track, soball

diamonds, and dog park, and now this proposal

seeks to realise opportunities for mixed-use

business and residential activities.”

The development is subject to afull feasibility

study and engineering investigations, including all

resource consent processes and approvals, before

the land is sold to ensure that the agreed concept

plan can be delivered in reasonable timeframes.

William Hill Consulting’s Director Jedd Pearce says

their proposal has space for 24berths, mixed

use business areas, pedestrian access to the awa

(river), townhouses that will have some of the best

views in Canterbury and space for events.

“We think Kaiapoi can be New Zealand’s best river

town and this marina would be an integral part of

it,” says Mr Pearce.

“This area would become areal centre for Kaiapoi’s

township and attract alot of new visitors and

residents into the town centre.”

November 2021 –April 2022 inclusive.

Drains or areas of drains will be sprayed according to

need and not all public drains will necessarily be sprayed.

pest species will continue.

The active chemicals that may be used in this programme

are:

•Glyphosate for vegetation

•Triclopyr for gorse and broom

The majority of drains to be sprayed will be dry and

signs will be erected.

All spraying will be completed by 30 April 2022.

“The Key of knowledge...” (Luke 11:52)

GOD WILL FULFILL HIS

PROMISES -

BUT WHAT ARE THEY?

God has been active from the creation, revealing

those things that will come to pass on the Earth.

He has given promises, to reassure mankind,

that the planet and all upon it are not destined to

destruction. He always intended that his creation

would be to reflect who he is, and be abeautiful

jewel in the Universe. To learn ofthose promises,

we must go to the source-the Bible. Only here is

there true direction as to what God has promised,

and how it will be brought to pass. ‘But as truly as I

live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory ofthe

LORD’ Numbers 14:21
