Lincoln South hearing: Land shortage

fuels unprecedented price escalation

• By Susan Sandys

ADVOCATES for Carter

Group’s controversial

2000-home Lincoln South

development say land is

desperately needed to free up

supply.

The hearing for the Plan

Change 69 zone change

application opened this week at

Tai Tapu Community Centre.

It is scheduled to run until

Friday. About 55 people are to be

heard.

The first of these on Monday

morning was Carter Group director

Tim Carter and supporters

giving expert evidence, including

real estate agent Chris Jones and

registered valuer Gary Sellars.

Jones and Sellars painted a

picture of the urgency of the

development in the face of high

demand for sections and little

supply, which had led to an unprecedented

escalation in prices.

“While the high demand for

residential sections is evident

throughout Greater Christchurch,

the market in Lincoln is

particularly frantic,” Jones said.

He added that it was “practically

impossible” to buy a section

in Lincoln. He believed it was

HEARING: Commissioner David Caldwell (left) hears from real estate agent Chris Jones,

who painted a picture of the dire need for new sections. Applicant representative Tim

Carter, at the table on right, is flanked by his counsel Jo Appleyard (far left) and Lucy

Forrester, and planner Jeremy Phillips.

only a matter of time before the

average house and land package

in the township would be about

$1 million, as had happened in

Halswell.

“If the rezoning of sites is put

off any longer, there will be a

window of no residential purchasing

in Lincoln, which will

lead to existing prices sky rocketing

higher than they already

are,” Jones said.

Sellars gave an indication of

just how high those prices had

sky rocketed. While there had

been a regular upward trend

in the average sale price since

2011, in the last 12 months the

growth had been exponential. It

went from $238,334 last year to

$520,000 this year, so was well in

excess of 100 per cent.

“From my experience, it is

preferable there is always an

oversupply of appropriately

zoned land, so that the market

can determine when and if

it is developed into sections

dependent upon demand,”

Sellars said.

Carter also spoke about the

major shortage of sections. He

said that Carter Group had recently

gone back into residential

development in response. It had

since been “inundated” with

requests from people wanting

to secure land on which to build

their homes.

He said Selwyn was the only

district in Canterbury that had

ample land to provide for ongoing

growth opportunities. When

looking for land to develop, the

company sought large blocks

adjoining urban environments

that could be developed in a

comprehensive way.

“In our view, the Plan Change

69 site is unique in that it is a very

logical extension of the Lincoln

township. This, combined with

physical features of this site, will

make it a very appealing and high

quality human environment.”

In addition to PC69,

Carter Group was pursuing Plan

Change 73, to rezone 160ha of

land in Rolleston to enable about

2100 sections. A decision on

PC73 is expected by the end of

the year, he said.

Sheds lost in fire: ‘Hedge

• By Susan Sandys

“FIRE, FIRE,” came the call

from Danny Morris’ son. Morris

ran outside, and within minutes

he was fighting to save his home.

The fierce blaze on a lifestyle

block near Lincoln is believed to

have started from a home-made

barbecue, which Morris had lit

to celebrate his son Zechariah’s

eighth birthday.

People at the scene frantically

got vehicles out of the way as

explosions rattled around them.

Eight fire appliances and crews

attended. A work shed and a

farm shed were destroyed, along

with a tractor, caravan, van,

forklift and car.

Morris lost about $30,000 of

vehicles and equipment stored

in the work shed. He was not

insured. However, when he considers

the ferocity and speed of

the blaze, he feels blessed.

“It would have gone up like a

blooming fire cracker,” he said of

the home, where he lives with his

wife and four children.

The reason it didn’t was due

to the “tremendous” work of

firefighters, and luck. He said

while the weatherboard villa’s

window exploded, paint blistered

and spouting melted, the fire did

not penetrate the wall near the

blaze as this area happened to be

SURREAL: Danny Morris can’t believe how quickly the ferocious blaze took hold.

inflammable fibrolite.

He said the ordeal began about

4pm on November 16 as he was

preparing to hold the birthday

barbecue outside. About 15min

after he lit a few pieces of gum

timber in a steel square wheelbarrow

and the flames quelled,

ready for him to put a steel grate

on top, he went inside to wash

his hands.

That was when he heard his

son yelling and he ran outside.

“I couldn’t even see the fire,

I thought he was joking, I was

about to tell him off,” Morris said.

But he soon saw what Zechariah

was looking at – flames

in a hedge about 5m away. He

believed wind, which had rapidly

come up, had all of a sudden carried

a spark to the hedge.

He cranked up a water blaster,

but the fire “just took off.”

“As I was fighting it, it was so

surreal, how the hell did we end

up here?” he said.

Passing motorists stopped to

help, while his wife, neighbours

and others phoned 111. As firefighters

got to work, he stayed at

the scene for a while, “watching

in disbelief.”

Morris said he was proud of

Zechariah for raising the alarm,

and moving his little two-yearold

brother as the family shifted

to safety.

Morris sells firewood and

makes furniture. The items lost

included woodworking gear, tree

cutting gear and machines, a

forklift, welders, and a small car

he was working on. They were

in the work shed on the lifestyle

block on Greenpark Rd, which

he and his family rented.

“I’m feeling pretty blessed,

I’ve got good people around, my

family is safe.”

One of the passing motorists

was Kerry Cameron of

Springston. He leant a hand by

driving a car out of a driveway.

He described the frantic efforts

of others at the scene as there

were small explosions and the

blaze moved into the farm shed.

A couple of men managed to push

a horse float out of the way, but

could not start a tractor next to

a caravan, so both of these were

destroyed.

Lincoln chief fire officer Jeremy

Greenwood said the fire was

fanned by strong winds. It quickly

spread from the macrocarpa

hedge to the farm buildings and

came within 2m of the house.

“We managed to stop it spreading

to the house,” Greenwood

said.

Greenwood said the macrocarpa

hedge was “like a can of

petrol”.

Firefighters had the fire under

control within an hour and spent

four hours at the scene.

Charges laid

over alleged

pensioner attack

• By Susan Sandys

FOUR YOUTHS from

Christchurch have been charged

in relation to an alleged assault

on a Prebbleton pensioner in

January.

The teenagers have been

charged with unlawfully

taking a motor vehicle and

theft, while two of them are

also facing aggravated robbery

charges in connection with the

alleged assault on Birchs Rd.

They are being dealt with in

the Youth Court.

The victim, aged in his 70s,

heard a noise on his property

about 9.20pm and went outside

to find his shed being broken

into. A youth was holding a petrol

can. Three other youths ran

from the shed and the elderly

man was allegedly punched in

the eye.

Selwyn youth aid officer

Senior Constable Bruce Ward

said it had been good to see the

case result in charges following

good work from officers at the

Christchurch youth crime unit.

It had been a serious incident

and one which was rare for the

district.

“We don’t come across this

sort of offending very often at

all, especially in Selwyn,” Ward

said.

MORE THAN 1000 farmers

and supporters from throughout

Selwyn converged on

Christchurch on Sunday as the

nationwide Groundswell Mother

of All Protests got under way.

Hundreds of tractors, utes and

trucks formed a rolling convoy,

coming in from as far away as

Sheffield, via State Highway 73,

and as far away as Leeston, via

Rolleston, to Memorial Ave.

Sheffield farmer Derek Bull,

who co-organised the lobby

group’s first protest at Darfield

in July, said this time around

it was a “spectacular” show

of dissatisfaction with the

Government, with more people

than expected turning up. The

message had not been muddled

by inappropriate signs, or

factions hijacking it, as had been

reported from some other parts

of the country.

This meant that farmers’ message

came across loud and clear,

with signs on vehicles giving

a clear visual display against a

noisy backdrop of tooting of

horns and cheers from supporters.

Top of many of protestors’

minds was Three Waters,

while other issues included the

national policy on freshwater,

significant natural areas, the

national policy on indigenous

the clean car package.

“I’m all for good regulations,

not pointless ones, that’s just job

Bull said.

He expected more protests in

going to give up.

Top tips for using your water sense:

· Use a watering can or hand-held hose instead of a sprinkler

· Avoid unnecessary water use during peak demand times

Don’t irrigate between 6–9am or 4–9pm daily

Man faces

charges over

car crash

• By Susan Sandys

A 36-YEAR-OLD man from

Christchurch has been charged

following a car crash that injured

an elderly couple at Lincoln on

October 19.

A police spokesperson said the

man had been charged with operating

a vehicle carelessly, refusing

a request for a blood specimen

and driving while suspended.

He allegedly crashed his car

into that of the elderly Lincoln

couple as they drove on Gerald St

about 1pm. They were travelling

south when a motorist behind

them drove to the left of their

vehicle. The motorist then veered

right and hit their vehicle’s side

and front.

“Thank god for seat belts, they

saved us,” the Lincoln man told

the Selwyn Times after the crash.

He and his wife were taken

in and looked after by the crew

at the nearby Property Brokers,

before being taken to hospital

by ambulance. They received

bruising to their ribs and sternum

from the seat belts.

The alleged offender is

scheduled to appear in

Christchurch District Court on

December 15.

THE DISTRICT council is

worried the Government’s new

intensification housing plan will

bring unwelcome social and

infrastructure issues.

The district council has expressed

concern over the broad

approach of the Government’s

new housing intensification

rules, and the speed at which

they are being introduced.

“In our

submission we

have made it

really clear that

such a broadbrush

approach

to enabling

housing intensification

will not deliver

well-balanced

well-being

outcomes for present and future

generations,” Mayor Sam

Broughton said.

“While the Bill might help the

housing supply shortage it could

equally lead to an unwelcome

social and infrastructure issues,”

The district council supports

more housing for the growing

population, but has raised concerns

about the approach in its

submission made yesterday on

the Resource Management (Enabling

Housing Supply and other

matters) Amendment Bill.

The Bill, currently before

select committee, would allow

three homes of up to three

storeys high to be built without

a resource consent on most

residential areas in New Zealand

largest urban areas, including

Selwyn district, from August

next year.

The Bill is particularly relevant

to Selwyn, which continues to

be the fastest growing district in

the country, both in terms of the

total number of new residents

and percentage growth.

The most recent Stats NZ

showed Selwyn grew by 3400

people from 2020 to 2021. This

“We support the Government’s

options, including more affordable

homes,” said Mayor Sam

Broughton.

“However, given the significant

impact this Bill has on our

Work to save

kauri

recognised

LINCOLN University Associate

Professor Dr Amanda Black’s

work to save threatened kauri

forests by understanding

important soil microbes is being

recognised by the Royal Society

Te Apārangi.

Black is co-director of Bioprotection

Aotearoa, and one of 11

researchers awarded Rutherford

Discovery Fellowships.

Her research entitled Genomes

to giants: Restoring resilient soil

ecosystems in kauri forests was

cited by the Royal Society Te

Apārangi.

“Microbes in soil – tiny living

forms that are found all around

us, too small to be seen by the

naked eye – have a big role to play

in making kauri trees dominant

in our forests,’’ Black said.

She said since European settlement,

kauri forests have been

significantly reduced, covering

less than four per cent of their

original pre-1800s land-range.

“Kauri are now threatened

with extinction through

the loss of vital elements in

soil such as nitrogen and

phosphorus with the extinction

of seabird populations, forest

fragmentation, and invasive plant

pathogens such as Phytophthora

agathidicida, the causative agent

of kauri dieback.”

OUR PEOPLE – KATE WILLIAMSON

Beating illness through tennis

Ladbrooks’ Kate

Williamson studied

criminal law, and

worked as a probation

officer and recruitment

agent. Now the 33-yearold

has returned to a

sporting passion of her

childhood to become

a professional tennis

coach, which has

helped her fight off

a rare disease. Susan

Sandys reports

What are the highs and lows

of being a professional tennis

coach?

I’m region coach for Ellesmere

Tennis Association, coaching the

rep teams within the Ellesmere

region. I’m also head coach of

Prebbleton Tennis Club, Lincoln

Tennis Club and Ladbrooks

Tennis Club. I definitely love

working for myself. But there’s

always nights when it’s freezing

cold in the middle of winter,

and it’s eight o’clock at night,

and you are thinking: ‘Office

job nine to five would be quite

good right now.’ I don’t see (my

partner) Julian until nine o’clock

most nights. Mostly I teach kids,

aged five to 18, but adults on a

private basis. It’s really full on,

I have a whole new respect for

teachers. It’s so rewarding at the

same time. If the kids weren’t

enjoying it, I wouldn’t do it. I am

now working alongside Tennis

NZ which is a role I am really

passionate about, as a coach

developer. I go around different

regions teaching other coaches

or volunteers how to coach.

How did you start playing

tennis?

My dad owns a motorcycle

company, so I grew up riding

motorbikes. My parents did not

play tennis, but they took me

along to a holiday Have A Go

session at Prebbleton when I

was eight. I wore completely non

tennis clothes, and I had a silly

old racket from The Warehouse,

which nowadays I would

cringe at. I was wearing a black

flowery skirt, probably not even

sneakers.

Your passion for tennis took

off from there?

I joined up to local tennis

training sessions at my school,

Ladbrooks primary. The first rep

team I ever made was the under

12 girls team for Ellesmere. I

kept playing for Ladbrooks until

I was 13 and then I got asked to

play in the Ellesmere senior A

grade competition, so that was

with all adults. I was only 13 and

I started playing in the top grade

you can play in in Ellesmere.

You must have been the

youngest there at that time?

Yes, some of my mixed double

partners were 50, 60 years old,

so I learned a lot from them. I

matured as a player, through

learning tactics and tennis

etiquette, that you perhaps miss

when you are only a junior player.

Did you continue playing

through high school?

I went to Lincoln High School,

which wasn’t a big tennis school.

But they had the year 9 tennis

cup, which I won, and then

eventually we did start a tennis

team. My best friend played

tennis as well, there’s a picture

of us in the Selwyn Times. We

played in the South Island

secondary schools tournament.

We qualified for that, it was kind

of the start of Lincoln getting

involved with tennis more.

What did you do when you

left school?

When I was 18 years old,

friends and parties became

more of a priority. I would

still play tennis, but I wouldn’t

train during the week. I went

to Canterbury uni, did a

double degree, a BA and law.

At university, tennis became

even less of a priority. Although

I still did play, and we played

a law exchange with Dunedin

university. I went up to

Auckland University for my

sixth and final year to do a

postgraduate honours degree

in criminology. After moving

back home to Ladbrooks in

2013, I got a job working for the

Department of Corrections, as

a probation officer, for about six

months.

That would have been an

interesting job?

It was a whole realisation for

me, that the world isn’t such a

pretty place in some areas. It was

a long way from the nice, happy

tennis clubs of Ellesmere. I gave

up the position to move to Perth,

to be with Julian, who worked

in the mining industry. He had

been flying back to Christchurch

for his one week in five to visit

me, it was quite the love story.

What did you do in Perth?

I ended up working in the oil

and gas industry in recruitment,

one of the biggest oil and gas

companies in the world, Brunel.

They were a huge company,

so that was a great two years.

Then one day the role actually

changed, it suddenly became

more about sales and having

to get the work rather than fill

the work. I decided I hated it, it

wasn’t as fun anymore, I handed

in my notice.

So you became unemployed?

When I quit, I decided: ‘Why

not be a yoga teacher?’ I trained as

a yoga teacher. At the same time,

I had joined the Royal King’s

Park Tennis Club in the city. So

I started playing tennis more

than I ever had. I made the top

women’s team at the club, we had

free coaching sessions, I started

working as a tennis coach. I also

trained and worked as a massage

therapist. I worked for myself

now, I was my own boss. We

moved back home to Ladbrooks

in 2016. I trained in tennis

coaching and am ITF qualified.

Do you still teach yoga?

I had to give up in 2019. I got

too busy in tennis, but I also got

diagnosed with a really serious

illness, Cushing’s Syndrome. So

I ended up with this rare disease,

which destroyed me. They think

that the tumour, which is what

I had on my adrenal gland, had

been growing since 2016. That

was when I actually randomly

put on 20kg in two months, and

was 80kg. Long story short, I

kept trying to lose the weight

and then two or three years went

on and I was just getting bigger

and bigger. I had insomnia, I had

acne, I had my hair falling out

and my blood pressure was 190. I

had to be kept in hospital until it

could be brought down. Instead

of producing, say, 400 millilitres

of cortisol, I was producing 3000.

That’s the adrenaline hormone,

so it feels like your body is a

constant state of stress. It was

this horrible, horrible disease.

At the end of 2019, I was getting

sicker, I got other people to cover

my tennis, my sister Beth was

also a tennis coach. Everyone

was amazing in the tennis

community, the support really

got me through.

How did you recover?

I saw an endocrinologist, went

on a surgery waiting list. In

March 2020, I got my adrenal

gland and my tumour removed.

Very luckily, it wasn’t cancerous;

you don’t know until it is taken

out. After the surgery, I produced

no cortisol. Even though you

have two adrenal glands, the

other one turned off, because my

right one had been producing so

much. So I went through a whole

period for 2020, from March to

October, being like a drug addict

coming off drugs (withdrawing

from high cortisol levels). I

couldn’t walk I couldn’t go to the

toilet, I would lie in bed shaking,

fevers, spewing. So I got put on

replacement steroids, but it still

wasn’t enough. I had moved

back in with mum and dad. That

whole period of recovery was

actually harder than having the

disease itself. I went through

extreme anxiety, depression,

which I had never had in my life.

Are you better now?

Eventually, I started coaching

again, at the end of 2020. I got

extreme joint pain and I still get

that, I kept fighting through.

I have slowly got better and

better. I have lost 25kg over the

past year. A couple of months

ago, I went to the hospital and

got given the all clear. So my

remaining adrenal gland has

started working again. I’m cured

from Cushing’s, but I still live

with the after effects. I am now

taking no medication, which is

massive, the anxiety has gone

the depression has gone, now

I can recognise myself again.

With Cushing’s, you not only put

on weight, but your whole face

blows up and you essentially lose

your eyes, your face become so

puffy. I don’t have that feeling of

shame and embarrassment with

how I look, it’s amazing how that

can change your confidence.

Did tennis help with your

recovery?

Yes, it gave me something to

strive for. I wanted to be back

full strength coaching, so I

worked lots in the gym. You get

a lot of muscle wastage, I lost all

my strength. I slowly worked on

building and building , so I can

run again, and run on a tennis

court and hit balls. I would get

out and practice doing those

things.

SURGERY: Last year in March, Williamson underwent

surgery to have an adrenal gland and tumour removed so

she could begin to recover from Cushing’s syndrome.

THE LINCOLN Maternity

Hospital should somehow be

retained for various reasons,

importantly as a symbol of

respect for the huge part it has

played in the community.

Lincoln has lost it village

feeling, retaining the hospital is

important as the building should

have heritage status. It also plays

an important part in keeping

Lincoln a proud village in which

to live.

It’s not about how many homes

you could fit on the site.

What are the options to

retaining the building as a

very important part of our

community? – Colin Giddens,

Building

consent

team praised

THE DISTRICT council’s building

consent team has been assessed as

one of the top performing building

consent authorities in the country.

The latest independent

accreditation assessment of

the district council as a BCA

was completed this month by

International Accreditation New

Zealand which conducts the

review on behalf of the Ministry

of Business, Innovation and

Employment.

The IANZ assessors praised the

building team for maintaining its

systems and processes at such a

high level, given the unprecedented

growth pressures the district has

been under over the last year.

Eight general non-compliance

issues were identified, three of

which were fully addressed, and

four partially addressed, district

council building manager Vanessa

Mitchell said.

One related to building consent

processing time frames exceeding

the statutory time frame of 20

working days.

Mitchell said proactive measures

have seen the average consent

processing time reducing from an

average of 34 working days in July

to 24 days in October.

This comes in spite of an

increasing number of consent

applications.

“It’s early days, so it’s only

on board.

Davis said the service had

signed up about 30 drivers, who

work as independent contractors.

Delivereasy has about 1300

drivers around the country.

There were no plans at this

stage to expand the service to

include other towns in Selwyn,

Delivereasy would look at in the

DARFIELD maintained their

lead at the top of Canterbury

country’s premier grade

one-day cricket competition

with a commanding win over

competition rivals Cheviot.

There were also wins for

Oxford-Rangiora, Sefton, and

Weedons in seventh-round action

on Saturday.

At the picturesque Cheviot

Domain, Darfield batted first

and got off to the perfect start

with openers Nick Jenkins and

Liam Foulkes putting on 127

runs for the first wicket.

When Foulkes was out for 45,

Canterbury star Henry Shipley,

fresh from his latest heroics in

the Plunket Shield, smashed

42 off just 21 balls to keep the

momentum going.

Jenkins was out in the 22nd

over for 77 off 65 balls, a knock

instrumental in driving Darfield

to 249/8 in their allotted 45

overs.

Scott Burnett was the standout

Cheviot bowler, claiming a fivewicket

bag.

Shipley opened the Darfield

bowling and removed Ted

Whelan and the dangerous

Harry Fitzpatrick, before Liam

Foulkes’ off-spin through the

middle overs completed the

dominant win.

Only Cheviot opener Ryan Ellis,

with a well-made 61, showed

much resilience as Cheviot

collapsed to be all out for 129 in

the 33rd over, falling to a heavy

120-run defeat.

Oxford-Rangiora, with a few

of their consistent performers

away, picked up a quality 80-run

victory over Ohoka at Mandeville.

New opening pair Jonty Fleming

(44 off 68) and Eden Sinclair

(40 off 90) set up the win with

a fine 83-run opening stand, as

Oxford-Rangiora made 169/8 in

their 45 overs.

A similarly depleted Ohoka

never threatened the total

especially after Jake Waghorn

knocked off three key scalps at

the top of the order.

Then it was Nathan Cook

who stole the show, the left-arm

spinner ripped through the

remainder of the Ohoka order to

finish with the superb figures of

6/22 from 6.3 overs.

Sefton overcame Leeston-

Southbridge to claim a solid

away victory, after defending

237/6.

more than 30, with Matt Laffey

After Canterbury seamer

Fraser Sheat blasted out three

top-order wickets, Toby Doyle

(49 off 57) and Chris Beatson (49

chase.

But when they fell in the 21st

and 26th overs respectively,

nobody else was able to step up

and the visitors claimed a 72-run

victory.

• By Jonny Turner

THERE WAS little rest for Craig

Thornley after he brought up his

700th driving win at Timaru on

Saturday.

The Aylesbury reinsman

brought up the milestone

with a winning double for key

supporter Donna Williamson

on her home track with two

of his signature front-running

drives behind Clyde and The

Dominator.

By Sunday morning

Thornley and Williamson

were combining again – but

this time with the racehorses of

tomorrow.

Thornley was on deck at

Williamson’s Belmont stud, just

a matter of metres from Phar

Lap Raceway, where three foals

were born overnight and there

were plenty of mares to scan to

ready them for the delivery of

their foals next spring.

The reinsman, whose career

highlights include Group 1 wins

with Franco Nelson and Nearea

Franco and an Interdominion

victory with Play On, said

bringing up win 700 was made

more special by it coming in

Williamson’s colours on her

home track.

“You know it is always going to

come – you’d like to think – but

it was good to get it with Donna’s

horses and especially at Timaru,”

Thornley said.

Clyde scored by half a length

after Thornley took control of

race 6 by sending the trotter to

the front early.

The margin could have been

further if Clyde hadn’t taken

his work so casually in the run

home.

“He was going easy and even

up the straight – he just loafs a

wee bit.”

“He never felt like he was going

to get beat, in fact, neither

horse felt like they were going

to get beat once they got to the

front.”

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Thornley brings up 700 wins

SPECIAL: Craig Thornley was thumbs up after driving his 700th career win.

Thornley also had The

Dominator in front controlling

race 9, the George Shand

Memorial.

The open class seven-year-old

made light work of his 30m back

mark and was leading with a lap

to go following a mid-race move

from his driver.

“He is funny because he never

used to be a great beginner but

now he has turned into a really

good standing start horse.

“That helps when you’re off a

mark, you’re there, you’re not

chasing.

“It makes a big difference from

a handicap like that.”

Once in front, The Dominator

was close to a good thing given

he was dropping in class after

contesting the Group 1 New

Zealand Trotting Free-For-All

on New Zealand Cup Day.

“I thought he went a really

good race in the Free-For-All,

he burnt hard off the gate and

he ran the fastest first 200m and

the third fastest last 200m of the

race.

“He only beat one home but

he still hit the line, so it was a

House sets

up in

Waikato

• By Joshua Smith

MICHAEL HOUSE is sending a

team of 11 horses to Morrinsville

where he is setting up a satellite

stable for the summer.

“I have made no secret that my

long-range plan was to get back

to the North Island, especially

when Wilson [House, son] was

accepted into year 1 at vet school

[at Massey University] next year,”

the Prebbleton harness racing

trainer said.

“When Cambridge announced

that they were seeking South

Island horses and were offering

travel subsidies I rang them and

said I was interested.

“They wrote to me, and it didn’t

spin my wheels, it didn’t make me

decide straight away, but as time

went by and the three trips that

we have done to the North Island

have been Covid restricted with

the ferries.

“They are down two ferries,

plus with all the extra freight it

has been very difficult.

“Phil Coppins came along and

said he would like to help and

Cambridge have been very good.

Maria Enochsson is going to be

leading the team up there and

stay up there [Morrinsville] for

the summer.”

Five artists combine for our new group exhibition ‘Sum of the Parts’

November 27 - December 14; on show for a shorter duration to allow

for all-important Christmas pickup opportunities.

Contributing artists are Christchurch Kara Burrowes and local Little

River sculptor Jane Downes. Jasmine Keir’s studio is in Kerikeri, just up

the road from Dave Green in Rawene, and Debra Powell is from the

rural Waikato hamlet of Te Pahu.

Kara Burrowes is an artist and designer based in Christchurch. Her work

is tactile and experimental. Using recycled wood from demolition sites, she loves

the concept of transforming something quite ordinary into something precious and

alluring. “Through reinterpretation I like to create a new language, often through the

use of pattern and repetition, method and process.”

Debra Powell’s alias in the pottery studio is ‘Little Betty’. Her ceramic work has

strong narrative themes, exploring relationships between people and nature, playing

with convention, and infusing the result with a gentle humour.

Oxidized copper artist Jasmine Keir endeavours to create and understand the

alchemy of colours achievable via her artistic process; one which uses a variety of

natural ingredients to react with and manipulate the finish of her copper works.

Dave Green creates whimsical arrangements; ‘Lightshifter’ sculptures. His art is about changing the form

and shape of found, often discarded, objects - both natural and manmade. Reborn out of pre-loved glass

and crystal, some are lighting devices others are designed to hang in the light.

Sculptor Jane Downes’ delicate themes are fabricated in steel. ‘Arboresque’ a study of tree forms, an

observation of nature’s sacred geometry.”

Term 4 Update

Principal’s Message

2021 marks a special milestone in the history of

Rolleston College as we bid farewell to our foundation

learners. It has been a joy and a privilege to have

seen these learners through their full five years of

education at Rolleston College. Many now embark

next year to tertiary studies or the world of work well

prepared for the agility and collaborating skills to adapt

to the demands of a rapidly changing society. We thank

our local community for supporting these learners through their

5 years with opportunities for work experience, sponsorship and

guidance.

Rachel Skelton, Principal

Rolleston College Leadership

The Rolleston Spirit

There are many different Leadership

opportunities at Rolleston College and

these reflect the many different

ways in which someone can

show leadership and give back

to the College.

A very thorough process

took place at the end of

Term 3 and the start of

Term 4. This process

involved applications,

speeches, group

interviews and individual

interviews to select our

Year 13 leadership positions.

The next step is to select

our Year 10 - 12 Whanau

Ambassadors and this will be

completed by the end of Term 4.

Full of Hope got his day

off to a positive start when

taking out the Northern

At Llowalong Farm

Trot (2170m) and three

races later he was back in

the winner’s circle courtesy

of three-year-old filly Resolve

in the John Morrison

“I was happy with

both horses. I think they

both went in with a good

show and it was nice that

it worked out today,”

Leeston-based Nairn said.

Full Of Hope secured

her fifth win with a frontrunning

effort and she

enjoyed being back on the

grass surface.

“She has been a nice

mare, she has won five

races now. She seems to

like the grass, she has won

about three on the grass.”

Full Of Hope is one of

only two live foals from her

sire Waterloo Sunset’s first

crop, with Nairn standing

the son of Sundon at stud.

“He only had two live

foals in his first year and

the other one was Gil

New performing

arts class to bring joy

Adam Hayward from Arts Integrated

meets with students from Waitaha School

Young people living with disabilities will take to the stage in Selwyn’s newest performing arts class

in February 2022, with support from the Council.

The introductory course run by Arts Integrated and supported by the Selwyn Creative Community

Fund, starts on Wednesday 16 February at the Rolleston Community Centre. It will be hosted by

Arts Integrated tutor Sam Corry and former Arts Integrated student, Samuel Major-Johnson.

The course will run over 32 weeks. High-school students living with disabilities will learn how to

entertain, work as a team and tell their own stories through music and paintings, preparing them

with workplace skills.

Arts Integrated ran their first course in 2014. They are passionate about making a difference

for youth with disabilities by offering recreational programmes in the performing arts, as well as

opportunities for their students to become paid assistant tutors in their programmes.

Arts Integrated has been active in Selwyn working with Waitaha School students. They are grateful

to be receiving this fund and excited to offer their courses to people in the Selwyn district.

Applications are open for The Creative Community Fund at selwyn.govt.nz/community and close on

Friday 26 November.

Council raises concerns about new housing rules

The Council has expressed concern over the broad approach of the Government’s new housing

intensification rules, and the speed at which they are being introduced.

The Council supports the Government’s aims to address New Zealand’s housing shortage and allow

more housing options including more affordable homes. It raised concerns about the approach in

its submission made last week on the Resource Management (Enabling Housing Supply and other

matters) Amendment Bill.

The Bill would allow the building of three homes up to three storeys high to be built without resource

consent in residential areas of Selwyn, from August 2022.

The Council is concerned the Bill could allow intensification in areas not suited to it and with little planning.

“In our submission we made it really clear that such a broad-brush approach to enabling housing

intensification will not deliver well-balanced well-being outcomes for present and future generations,”

Mayor Broughton says.

“While the Bill might fix the housing supply shortage it could equally lead to social and infrastructure issues.

“The Council also regrets the very short submission period which prevented us consulting with our

community,” he says.

The Council’s full submission can be found on selwyn.govt.nz

Faces of Selwyn - Dishing up

cooking and sustainability skills

At Monika Rastogi’s home you are greeted by the smell of warm

Indian spices.

In her kitchen Monika is preparing a delicious vegetable curry. Her

six year old son Rayaan is busy chopping carrots.

“I started involving Rayaan in cooking when he was just three. Now

at the age of six he has already participated in three competitions!”

Monika explains.

Monika is passionate about getting children from five years up

involved with cooking, as it is an essential life skill that involves

focusing, problem solving, following instructions, and can boost

confidence. “I love seeing smiles on children’s faces when they

chop and prepare their own meal.”

Originally from India, Monika and husband Manu moved to New

Zealand in 2012, after living in Bangladesh and China.

When Rayaan was two, the family began looking to buy their first

home, close to a primary school and in a good community – they

chose Prebbleton.

“I like that it is very quiet and relaxed and calm. It is a mixed age

group and kid friendly. We’ve got a good community, so that sense of

belonging - that sense of family - makes this country our home now.”

When they moved to New Zealand Monika particularly missed

India’s events and festivities, late night shopping and the food.

So Monika decided to bring what she missed from India to New

Zealand, starting non-profit workshops teaching others how to cook

authentic North Indian cuisine and about sustainability; what they

can grow from a seed, cuttings and food scraps.

When she’s not cooking or working as an early childhood reliever,

Monika is active as a Lincoln Scouts leader, cricket coach,

Christchurch peony club secretary, member of Selwyn Timebank

and a volunteer, delivering food to those in need.

Faces of Selwyn tells the stories behind the many faces we see

around us in Selwyn. To hear the full interview with Monika or listen

to the other podcast episodes in this series, visit selwyn.govt.nz/

facesofselwyn.

Swell on Air

Council’s building team praised for its performance

The Council’s consent team has been assessed as one of the top performing building consent

authorities (BCA) in the country.

The assessment was done by International Accreditation New Zealand (IANZ) on behalf of the Ministry

of Business, Innovation and Employment. The review is required by law every two years.

The IANZ assessors praised the Council’s building team for maintaining its systems and processes at

such a high level, especially given the unprecedented growth pressures Selwyn has been under.

They also commended the team for its continuous improvement.

A low number of non-compliance issues and a strong management team with a real focus on

continuous improvement mean IANZ considers the Council to pose a ‘low risk’.

IANZ found eight general non-compliance issues. Three were fully addressed and four partially addressed

during the assessment. The Council is working with IANZ on a plan to address the remainder.

One issue was building consent processing timeframes exceeding the statutory timeframe of 20

working days. This has been a national issue with high volumes of consent applications and a shortage

of trained building control officers.

Proactive measures by the Council including developing a safe fast-track programme for low-risk

consets and on-the-job training have seen the average consent processing time reducing from an

average of 34 working days in July to 24 days in October.

This comes despite an increasing number of consent applications.

Council building manager Vanessa Mitchell says the assessment results can reassure people that the

Council has good systems and processes in place.

“Our building consent staff have put a lot of effort into continuously improving the way we process

and issue building consents, and it is a credit to the team that the reaccreditation process has gone so

smoothly,” she says.

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in

entomology (insects and other invertebrates). Each

week he introduces a new species found in his

backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise public

awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living things

around us. Check out the full list of invertebrates

found at www.inaturalist.org/projects/backyardbiodiversity-bugs-in-my-lincoln-section

Light attracts bug

we know little about

TURNING YOUR outside

light on at night is a great way

to survey the local moth fauna,

but moths aren’t the only critters

you attract.

Beetles, wasps, caddisflies,

spiders, mites and flies can all be

seen around lights.

Back in August, I found a

true bug called Wekamiris

auropilosus. This species is

orange-brown to dark brown in

colour with intricate patterns or

markings on its back. It also has

a small yellow head with large

“buggy” eyes, compared to its

head size.

The species is 4-6mm long and

occurs throughout New Zealand,

including some offshore

islands.

Very little is known about

this species, but it has been

found on Pseudopanax

species, Olearia ilicifolia,

Muehlenbeckia, Nothofagus,

ferns, tussock, and litter of Pinus

radiata.

Aggressive look for new Outlander

THERE IS NO doubt Mitsubishi

make particularly good cars,

they also make particularly good

television advertisements.

One I find quite entertaining is

that for the outgoing Outlander, it

demonstrates the amount of space

inside the mid-size sport utility

vehicle and includes my favourite

segment, Monty the white persian

cat getting a short shrift from

sleeping comfortably inside the car.

Mitsubishi had a successful

Outlander runout and it has

been replaced with a new

generation model, although the

concept of old has been very much

maintained.

The newcomer has a fresh

exterior design, it is squared-off

up front with an aggressive grille,

bumper and bold headlight shrouds.

There’s also a new driveline,

well, there is a new engine, the

2.5-litre petrol unit is coupled to

continuously variable transmission

that Mitsubishi has utilised to

good effect for many years now in

the Outlander and other models.

As before, the Outlander is also

available in three front and three

four-wheel-drive variants.

The six-model range starts at

$41,990 for the 2WD LS and ends

at $54,990 for the seven-seat 4WD

VRX, which is the subject of this

evaluation.

Like most car builders these

days Mitsubishi isn’t immune from

manufacturing and supply issues

due to an ever-increasing global

shortage of microchips and semiconductors,

and depending on the

time of purchase that could well

determine specification inclusions.

However, Mitsubishi are

reasonably well placed and the new

Outlander in VRX form is highly

specced. Major items include full

leather trim with heated seats

up front and in the second row,

electric seat adjustment, headup

display, Bose audio, electric

panoramic sunroof, kick-motion

tailgate, wireless smartphone

charging, triple-zone climate

control and satellite navigation that

sits in a large and comprehensive

central touch screen.

It was a bit of a surprise to learn

there was a completely new engine

for Outlander. The old 2.4-litre

unit served the Outlander well

and was a real honey in terms of

how it operated. Nevertheless,

the new engine picks up the

same fundamentals, it is quiet,

has efficiency and is relatively

powerful. It has power outputs of

135kW and 245Nm, up 9kW and

21Nm respectively from the old.

The 2488cc unit is also listed with

an 8.1l/100km combined cycle

average.

That’s quite good for a big

petrol-powered SUV and they

VERSATILE: Twenty-inch wheels on the Outlander help

raise ground clearance and offer off-road flexibility.

MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER VRX: Bold front end and new engine for latest generation model.

are figures I would rate as

being achievable under perfect

conditions. During my evaluation

time, the readout was constantly

sitting around 9l/100km. That

included a lot of inner-city driving

and my usual highway run. At

100km/h the engine is loping over

gently at 1500rpm, returning an

instantaneous figure of 4.8l/100km.

On the subject of figures, the

Outlander will accelerate from a

standstill to 100km/h in 9sec and

will complete a highway overtake

(80-120km/h) in 5.8sec.

The engine works fluidly through

the transmission, that’s one of

the benefits of CVT, it allows the

engine to work freely and, as such,

is highly responsive, it isn’t flighty

but it works the entire rev band

willingly. The driver has the use of

a paddle-shift gearing selector, it

will lock the transmission into one

of eight steps, which is useful for

travelling on hill roads and many

other applications.

There’s also an economical mode

that dulls the throttle response in

the interests of saving fuel use.

Mitsubishi builds great fourwheel-drive

systems, and the new

Outlander has the benefit of years

of development through previous

generation models and the likes

of Lancer Evolution, Triton

and Pajero models. The Super

All-Wheel-Control system has

many driver-selectable functions

• Price – Mitsubishi

Outlander VRX 4WD,

$54,990

• Dimensions – Length,

4710mm; width, 1862mm;

height, 1748mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheel-drive,

2488cc, 135kW, 245Nm,

eight-step continuously

variable automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 9sec

• Fuel usage – 8.1/100km

through a centre console dial. The

evaluation car had only travelled

400km when I picked it up, so I

wasn’t prepared to drive crosscountry,

but I did tackle a short offthe-seal

road near Hororata, and

could certainly feel drive kicking in

through all four corners.

The Hororata River was merely

a dribble as I drove through the

rocky river floor, it was a good

test of suspension control, the

four-strut system soaking up

well the uneven surface. That’s

another Outlander credential, it

is occupant-friendly with wellcushioned

underpinnings.

That would also be a hard

equation to get right, the

newcomer sits on low profile 20in

Bridgestone tyres (255/45), yet ride

comfort hasn’t been jeopardised,

the suspension has absorption

and with supple seating the new

Outlander is comfortable and

relaxing to drive.

With those big tyres there

is also much feedback at the

steering wheel and positive

corner turn-in, accuracy is

precise. Getting a big SUV to

steer well is a big ask for the

suspension engineers, but

I’m pleased to report the new

Outlander has control and a

deliberate handling quality.

When pushed into some corner

challenges it feels rigid and stable,

the high-quality tyres dealing to

everything asked of them.

More than anything the new

Outlander is the useful wagon we

have come to know and appreciate

the model for. It, too, has the space

inside that Mitsubishi has marketed

well in previous generation models.

Occupants seated in the rear row

should be thankful, it’s really just

an area for children or small adults,

yet it doesn’t feel confined back

there and getting in and out isn’t

too onerous.

The new Outlander has a certain

finesse, especially in VRX form,

it is plush and incredibly well

appointed, I’m sure Monty would

approve.

I can’t wait to see Mitsubishi’s

promotional material for the

newcomer, the advertising agency

has a hard act to follow.

MY PRIDE AND JOY

Girls’ Club Caravanning

promotes independence

Jobs, schedules and circumstances

often restrict family holidays, but not for

Dot; with two daughters (12 and 15) and

a busy husband, Dot found a solution.

Her husband couldn’t always take time

off work, so with support, a pinch of

confidence and freedom to visit amazing

destinations, Dot started their “Girls’ Club

Caravanning” eight years ago.

The family enjoys year-round holidays

with their Lunar Chateau caravan, staying

dry and warm with electric blankets

in winter. The caravan was chosen for

quality, size and affordability, with ease

of towing for Dot. It’s a bach on wheels

being self-contained with cooking

facilities, fridge and a toilet to avoid the

dreaded late-night run through the rain,

leaving the kids on their own. The queen

and double bed easily accommodate the

family, and in summer, they have tents for

the kids.

Before setting out, Dot checks the

weather, and thoroughly inspects the

caravan and does basic roadworthiness

checks. She ensures there is water and gas

bottles are full, all necessary cables are in

the caravan, along with CRC, fly spray,

insect repellent and sunscreen, and the

all-important duct tape.

Dot says, “I don’t do caravanning for

me – I go caravanning for my kids, so

they have a great childhood.” The Girls’

Advanced

Advanced

Dot’s unique name, Girls’ Club

Caravanning, helps her daughters

to gain independence, resilience

and problem-solving during their

adventures.

Club Caravanning holidaying ethos is

about building independence, resilience

and problem-solving. Dot comments,

“The girls know how to do quite a bit on

the caravan now; they have their jobs and

feel empowered.” Dot hopes that when

the girls get older, they’ll feel capable of

travelling independently and will keep

living their best life without excuses. Dot

states that towing isn’t difficult,

and with parking and reversing

practice, you can get out of

difficult situations with a calm

attitude.

This approach has helped during

trips when things do go wrong.

While on a recent trip, the caravan

hatch flipped open and tore off.

With rain and water coming in,

Dot improvised using a large

bag and duct tape on the inside.

On another trip, with a loose

connection and brake lights not

working, Dot used a hair tie to

hold the connector and bracket

together, using some number

eight wire-thinking. Teaching her

daughters to think things through

using logical thinking and

common sense is part of the experience.

Their caravan has enabled the family to

build a lifetime of memories, with trips to

many destinations by “getting the map out

and following the weather”.

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS

Summer holidays

safe driving tips

Who doesn’t love a great summer road

trip? With summer fast approaching, it’s

time to prepare yourself and your vehicle to

make sure things go smoothly and safely.

Plan your journey

Before setting off, plan your jo urney with

intended rest stops and the route you will

be taking. With many people heading out

on holiday, allow extra time for more traffic

and possible delays. Safety is essential, so

ensure your vehicle is operating correctly.

Check tyre tread and pressure, lights,

brakes, air filter, oil, and top up your

coolant. Ensure you have sufficient fuel/

charge to make it to your first stop. Also,

have a current warrant of fitness, car

registration, and an appropriate driver’s

licence. Finally, have a good night’s sleep

before hitting the road.

Keep distractions to a

minimum

Once you’re ready to go, ensure

everyone in the vehicle is wearing

a seatbelt correctly. Put your cell

phone out of reach and focus on your

driving and surroundings. Also, have

sunglasses handy for road glare and to

prevent eye fatigue. Secure loose items

in your vehicle, as they can become

missiles in an accident. Think of

everyone’s safety and don’t drink and

drive. Watch your speed and following

distances as everyone wants to make

it to their intended destination

without mishap. “The journey is

more important than the destination” is

especially true on a road trip. Pull over and

rest when you need to. Remain calm, be

a courteous driver, be patient, and allow

drivers to merge when needed.

Check weather and road

conditions

Drive to the road conditions, weather,

your vehicle and yourself. Wear

comfortable clothing and appropriate

footwear. When towing, prevent

overloading and place heavy objects

evenly over all of the axles. Check towing

attachments and the safety chain, ensuring

the couplings are connected, and trailer

lights and brakes are working correctly.

Remember, the speed limit with a trailer

is 90 km, so use your rearview mirror and

pull over to avoid holding up traffic.

6 Tips to avoid “Are we there yet?”

1. Travel scavenger - have a list of things to

look for, take photos of or collect

2. Oven tray magnet board with magnets to

create pictures and designs.

3. Car colour bingo- watch the colour of

oncoming cars and record on a pre-made

bingo sheet

4. Activity kit with stickers, colouring

pencils, paper, puzzle book, and cards

5. An audiobook with headphones

6. A tablet to watch movies or shows

PETS & PAWS

Healthy natural food,

Our new and

and Rabbit

Medallions

healthy pets

Local pet food manufacturer Big Mountain Naturally

specialises in manufacturing quality, natural, raw pet foods made

from only the best ingredients such as rabbit, wallaby, hare,

venison, goat, salmon, chicken and beef.

Big Mountain Naturally is a local and well-established

company who offer pet food that is as close to nature as it is

possible to get.

They take a great deal of pride when manufacturing their

products for your pets. “All care is taken to maintain ultimate

freshness of all our products from harvesting to packaging.

During this process the product is rapidly frozen to seal in the

goodness of these great natural meats”.

It is company policy, not to use artificial flavouring, colouring,

preservatives or chemicals in the manufacture of their products.

The signature ‘Healthy Dog’ range has been perfected over

many years by owner Bob Thomson, and is a complete balanced

diet made from a proportioned selection of raw meats, organs,

bone and cartilage. Another bonus is that there is no reason cats

can’t eat it too.

Available in: Healthy Dog, Healthy Dog Beefless and Healthy

Dog Bars.

Our new convenient on-line store at www.bmnaturally.co.nz

is a great way to view and purchase from our range of 40+

raw meat products. Our popular Medallions are available in

convenient 1kg bags ideal for any size freezer, and with a choice

of 15 different flavours your pet will love!

Big Mountain Naturally also welcome you to drop in and

Laying pavers is easy

PAVING PART of your garden will

create an extra “room” for your

barbecue, a couple of sun loungers,

or a table and chairs.

Work out where you want the

paving stones. An area with a bit

of slope is good for drainage, but

make sure it does not slope towards

the house.

Measure the area, in square metres,

so you can calculate how many

pavers you will need. Allow five per

cent more for those you will have to

cut to fit odd spots.

Dig the area and level it. Don’t

recess it too much as the paving

stones should be above the ground

to stop water pooling. About 10

or 12cm is the right depth for foot

traffic.

Build a thick base of gravel or

stone chip by putting one thin layer

over another compacting each time

with a large rubber hammer.

Put in edging restraints (buy

concrete edging from hardware

stores) to hold up a free edge of

stones.

Put down about 3cm of sand

on the top of your base layer of

gravel.

Lay the paving stones in the sand

and use the hammer to settle them.

Wear earmuffs and safety glasses.

Sweep sand over the paved area to

fill in gaps.

GARDENING 31

Don’t battle the

elements, plant in pots

Wednesday November 24 2021 Selwyn Times

GARDENING IN pots is a

spectacularly rewarding and low

labour hobby.

Instead of battling the elements,

treating tired old soil, weeding

and digging frantically, you

simply tip the prepared perfect

potting mix into the container,

follow it up with the plants, water

and wait.

It’s hard to go wrong. You just

move the pot around until you’ve

found the perfect sunny or shady

spot, without disturbing the root

system, because a container garden

is portable.

You can move it about your

home, patio or garden to fill bare

spots at any time of year.

And best of all, when you move

house, you don’t have to leave

your cherished garden behind –

they all shift with the furniture.

Furthermore, container gardens

look great anywhere – as hanging

baskets on terraces and pergolas,

half round containers spilling

colour down a wall or fence, or

simply sitting on paved areas,

decks and steps.

For best effect, plan your

planter by height as well as colour.

You can mix annuals with a

central perennial until the peren-

MINIATURE: Gardens can

be grown in containers and

pots.

nial gets well established, and in

the meantime, enjoy a miniature

garden rather than a miniature

plant surrounded by bare earth.

You can dispense with the annuals

when the perennial takes

over.

Container gardeners can pretty

much give up weeding altogether.

But you don’t need to do a bit of

soil maintenance from time to

time, because the plants aren’t

in a self renewing environment

– they’re relying on you to give

them nutrition and moisture.

Looking for

some backyard

inspiration?

We’ve got the scoop.

Speak to us for quality landscaping supplies,

expert advice and superior service.

Check building covenants

before you purchase

Developers have a vision for their

subdivisions, which include the size, style

and landscaping of individual homes.

Such requirements will be written up in

a separate building covenant document.

As these address what might be built and

how a property can be used, it is important

to check these out before signing up for a

piece of land.

Covenants are conditions relating to

land ownership and use. Given they are

legally binding documents, you should

familiarise yourself with what is required

in terms of the home you will build and

also future living. Your solicitor should

also check this document.

Building covenants usually require

building work to be carried out in a safe

and tidy manner, and in line with Council

building consent standards. They will

also stipulate that care is to be taken

during building to ensure that public

spaces, infrastructure and facilities near

the site are not damaged. The impact of

construction on others living in the estate

will also likely be addressed.

In relation to the home to be built,

building covenants may address:

• the design and size of the home,

positioning on the section and whether

more than one storey is permitted;

• building height as well as roof pitch;

• whether any outbuildings are permissible

along with their siting;

• landscaping where viewed from the

street;

• location and style of driveways and paths

within street view; and

• fencing – boundary and within the

property (including distance from the

front of the section).

Your house design (including colours,

roof style and cladding types) along with

a landscaping plan, should be submitted

to your developer for approval before

building commences. It is a good idea to

do this before submitting plans to Council,

just in case changes may need to be made.

Covenants extend beyond the building

period, having validity after the ownership

of and responsibility for the subdivision

passes to the local Council. It is therefore

worth considering whether your lifestyle

will be impacted on, by the rules of the

area you are looking to live in.

While most covenants are reasonable

and logical, some are more specific.

Architecturally designed homes and only

some exterior cladding types may be

required. Often caravans, motorhomes

or trucks are not to be parked in view of

the street. There have also been cases in

certain developments where no vehicles

are to be parked on the street.

To ensure covenants are adhered to

during the building and landscaping

process, developers request a bond.

This may be around the $2,000 mark,

something to be budgeted for. Once

developer’s approval and sign-off is

achieved, the money will be refunded,

unless there is damage to the footpath,

vehicle crossing, curbing or some other

aspect of public land, which has not been

remediated. In such a case, the bond

may be forfeited to reimburse the cost of

putting this right.

Checking out building covenants before

purchasing land will avoid any surprises

further down the track.

Fencing

styles will be

addressed

within the

covenants.

Outdoor rooms

Just because an outdoor space doesn’t have

walls, that doesn’t change the basic principles

applied to any design project inside your home.

With a few simple fundamentals to guide

you, you’ll soon see how easy it is to create

a beautiful outdoor room you’ll love

entertaining and relaxing in throughout

the warm days and balmy nights of

summer.

Key considerations include style,

function, lighting and mood. Remember

that your outdoor room ought to be

an extension of the look you’ve created

within your home, which reflects your

personality and lifestyle.

Focal point

Beginning, as with any room of the

home, a space must always have a focal

point to anchor the space. For some, this

may be a bar or barbeque area, a large

dining table, or a chill-out zone with

couches or loungers.

Outdoor fireplaces are becoming

more and more popular as our living

areas blend seamlessly between indoor

and outdoor entertaining throughout

the changing of the seasons. They can

serve not only a practical purpose of

somewhere to gather around to warm

as the day turns to dusk and the nights

get shorter, an outdoor fire can make

a stunning feature or room divider for

any outdoor living area. Water features,

like a pond with beautiful koi fish, can

also serve as a great outdoor focal point,

creating tranquil environment in which

to relax and unwind in, or create a

meditative Japanese rock garden which

your outdoor area can overlook.

In the zone

If you already have a large terrace or

outdoor area, a blank canvas is a great

place to start. If you have a particularly

large outdoor area, dividing the space

into zones makes for a more functional

and aesthetically pleasing space. You can

do this by using a number of different

elements, such as contrasting flooring

materials or by creating different levels

of decking. However, if you’re after a

seamless indoor/outdoor flow or wish to

create the illusion of more space, use the

same flooring materials indoors and out.

Divisions can also be made with the

clever positioning of furniture. Use

modular seating to create walls and

separate spaces. Plants are a cost effective

and eco-friendly way to create divisions

between zones, and are also an ideal way

to camouflage ugly walls, create privacy

and soften sharp angles. Living walls, an

ever-increasingly popular vertical plant

system, can be either freestanding to

create different outdoor areas and can

be on wheels to easily transform your

outdoor space at a moment’s notice. Play

with height and scale with various

types of planters, whether you use

hanging planters to draw the eye upwards,

or oversized planter pots to add drama.

Go with the flow

Creating a great indoor/outdoor flow is

easily created by opening up your kitchen

with bifold doors or windows to create a

servery or bar area for easy entertaining.

If you are building your home from the

ground up, you may want to design an

outdoor room which lies at the epicentre

of the building, with rooms opening onto

the communal courtyard with bifold

doors.

Function over form

Consider what you intend to use your

outdoor space for. If you don’t plan on

eating outside, there’s no need for a dining

table, but buy some comfortable outdoor

seating instead. If you only intend on

sitting outdoors during the evening,

then don’t waste money on awnings and

umbrellas, and invest the money in an

outdoor fireplace which you will actually

use.

Atmosphere

Create unique and personalised outdoor

decor with textiles and homewares from

your travels or your favourite antique

shop, or make your own shell garlands or

wreaths from beach holidays. String up

fairy lights or lanterns to create a festive

mood in the evenings.

SELLING YOUR HOME?

Potential buyers are

likely to be living in your

neighbourhood, it’s an

area that they already love

and are actively seeking

to stay in. That’s why it

makes sense to advertise

your property in the

Your guide to all things Real Estate

in the Selwyn District

Building a home?

Start with a wish list

Building a home is one of the most

exciting and rewarding projects but can

also be stressful with thousands of decisions

to make during the build process.

Step one should be working out what the

priorities are for everyone who is going

to live in the new home and create a wish

list. There are several ways to do this so

everyone feels involved. Start with a list of

every room, including outdoor areas, and

then talk through what the priorities would

be in that area.

If you both want an island or a peninsula

in the kitchen also think about the function

- to add extra work space, provide storage

or a breakfast bar? This will influence the

size and shape and whether you need to

add electrical outlets.

Within your wish lists there will be

items that are not necessarily room-based

but part of the whole home, for example,

storage, heating, electrical outlets or

lighting.

Is there a way for storage to take up less

space and make it more accessible? Options

include a walk-in linen closet, walk in

wardrobes, a full height broom cupboard in

the laundry, window seats, built-in shelving

or entertainment area, pull-out pantry, shoe

racks, drawers or shelves in the bedroom

wardrobes.

The type of heating can depend on the

direction that your new house will face

in terms of how much

sun it gets. Are heated floors a priority, or

ducted heating rather than a fire or heat

pumps?

The number and location of the electrical

outlets is also something to think about

before your build. Gone are the days when

one plug is each room was enough. While

increasing the number of electrical outlets

may seem like a small thing, but will add

flexibility when you start placing your

furniture around your home.

Lighting is another essential thing to

discuss before the build. A skylight at the

front entrance can add both natural light

and drama. A skylight in the bedroom

means you can look up at the stars. All can

add a huge impact to the way you live.

Don’t forget the outdoor area. You might

want space for a trampoline or play area

or prefer an outdoor kitchen or dining

area. Think about providing

shelter from the sun or wind

and what your priorities

would be – a bar, pizza oven,

fire, television, dining table or

another seating area?

Part of the fun and

excitement of building your

home is being able to translate

your ideas and dreams into

reality. A little time now will

make sure that your home will

work for you and your family.
