Lincoln South hearing: Land shortage<br />

fuels unprecedented price escalation<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

ADVOCATES for Carter<br />

Group’s controversial<br />

2000-home Lincoln South<br />

development say land is<br />

desperately needed to free up<br />

supply.<br />

The hearing for the Plan<br />

Change 69 zone change<br />

application opened this week at<br />

Tai Tapu Community Centre.<br />

It is scheduled to run until<br />

Friday. About 55 people are to be<br />

heard.<br />

The first of these on Monday<br />

morning was Carter Group director<br />

Tim Carter and supporters<br />

giving expert evidence, including<br />

real estate agent Chris Jones and<br />

registered valuer Gary Sellars.<br />

Jones and Sellars painted a<br />

picture of the urgency of the<br />

development in the face of high<br />

demand for sections and little<br />

supply, which had led to an unprecedented<br />

escalation in prices.<br />

“While the high demand for<br />

residential sections is evident<br />

throughout Greater Christchurch,<br />

the market in Lincoln is<br />

particularly frantic,” Jones said.<br />

He added that it was “practically<br />

impossible” to buy a section<br />

in Lincoln. He believed it was<br />

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

who painted a picture of the dire need for new sections. Applicant representative Tim<br />

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

Forrester, and planner Jeremy Phillips.<br />

only a matter of time before the<br />

average house and land package<br />

in the township would be about<br />

$1 million, as had happened in<br />

Halswell.<br />

“If the rezoning of sites is put<br />

off any longer, there will be a<br />

window of no residential purchasing<br />

in Lincoln, which will<br />

lead to existing prices sky rocketing<br />

higher than they already<br />

are,” Jones said.<br />

Sellars gave an indication of<br />

just how high those prices had<br />

sky rocketed. While there had<br />

been a regular upward trend<br />

in the average sale price since<br />

2011, in the last 12 months the<br />

growth had been exponential. It<br />

went from $238,334 last year to<br />

$520,000 this year, so was well in<br />

excess of 100 per cent.<br />

“From my experience, it is<br />

preferable there is always an<br />

oversupply of appropriately<br />

zoned land, so that the market<br />

can determine when and if<br />

it is developed into sections<br />

dependent upon demand,”<br />

Sellars said.<br />

Carter also spoke about the<br />

major shortage of sections. He<br />

said that Carter Group had recently<br />

gone back into residential<br />

development in response. It had<br />

since been “inundated” with<br />

requests from people wanting<br />

to secure land on which to build<br />

their homes.<br />

He said <strong>Selwyn</strong> was the only<br />

district in Canterbury that had<br />

ample land to provide for ongoing<br />

growth opportunities. When<br />

looking for land to develop, the<br />

company sought large blocks<br />

adjoining urban environments<br />

that could be developed in a<br />

comprehensive way.<br />

“In our view, the Plan Change<br />

69 site is unique in that it is a very<br />

logical extension of the Lincoln<br />

township. This, combined with<br />

physical features of this site, will<br />

make it a very appealing and high<br />

quality human environment.”<br />

In addition to PC69,<br />

Carter Group was pursuing Plan<br />

Change 73, to rezone 160ha of<br />

land in Rolleston to enable about<br />

2100 sections. A decision on<br />

PC73 is expected by the end of<br />

the year, he said.<br />

Sheds lost in fire: ‘Hedge<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

“FIRE, FIRE,” came the call<br />

from Danny Morris’ son. Morris<br />

ran outside, and within minutes<br />

he was fighting to save his home.<br />

The fierce blaze on a lifestyle<br />

block near Lincoln is believed to<br />

have started from a home-made<br />

barbecue, which Morris had lit<br />

to celebrate his son Zechariah’s<br />

eighth birthday.<br />

People at the scene frantically<br />

got vehicles out of the way as<br />

explosions rattled around them.<br />

Eight fire appliances and crews<br />

attended. A work shed and a<br />

farm shed were destroyed, along<br />

with a tractor, caravan, van,<br />

forklift and car.<br />

Morris lost about $30,000 of<br />

vehicles and equipment stored<br />

in the work shed. He was not<br />

insured. However, when he considers<br />

the ferocity and speed of<br />

the blaze, he feels blessed.<br />

“It would have gone up like a<br />

blooming fire cracker,” he said of<br />

the home, where he lives with his<br />

wife and four children.<br />

The reason it didn’t was due<br />

to the “tremendous” work of<br />

firefighters, and luck. He said<br />

while the weatherboard villa’s<br />

window exploded, paint blistered<br />

and spouting melted, the fire did<br />

not penetrate the wall near the<br />

blaze as this area happened to be<br />

inflammable fibrolite.<br />

He said the ordeal began about<br />

4pm on <strong>November</strong> 16 as he was<br />

preparing to hold the birthday<br />

barbecue outside. About 15min<br />

after he lit a few pieces of gum<br />

timber in a steel square wheelbarrow<br />

and the flames quelled,<br />

ready for him to put a steel grate<br />

on top, he went inside to wash<br />

his hands.<br />

That was when he heard his<br />

son yelling and he ran outside.<br />

“I couldn’t even see the fire,<br />

I thought he was joking, I was<br />

about to tell him off,” Morris said.<br />

But he soon saw what Zechariah<br />

was looking at – flames<br />

in a hedge about 5m away. He<br />

believed wind, which had rapidly<br />

come up, had all of a sudden carried<br />

a spark to the hedge.<br />

He cranked up a water blaster,<br />

but the fire “just took off.”<br />

“As I was fighting it, it was so<br />

surreal, how the hell did we end<br />

up here?” he said.<br />

Passing motorists stopped to<br />

help, while his wife, neighbours<br />

and others phoned 111. As firefighters<br />

got to work, he stayed at<br />

the scene for a while, “watching<br />

in disbelief.”<br />

Morris said he was proud of<br />

Zechariah for raising the alarm,<br />

and moving his little two-yearold<br />

brother as the family shifted<br />

to safety.<br />

Morris sells firewood and<br />

makes furniture. The items lost<br />

included woodworking gear, tree<br />

cutting gear and machines, a<br />

forklift, welders, and a small car<br />

he was working on. They were<br />

in the work shed on the lifestyle<br />

block on Greenpark Rd, which<br />

he and his family rented.<br />

“I’m feeling pretty blessed,<br />

I’ve got good people around, my<br />

family is safe.”<br />

One of the passing motorists<br />

was Kerry Cameron of<br />

Springston. He leant a hand by<br />

driving a car out of a driveway.<br />

A couple of men managed to push<br />

a horse float out of the way, but<br />

could not start a tractor next to<br />

a caravan, so both of these were<br />

destroyed.<br />

Lincoln chief fire officer Jeremy<br />

Greenwood said the fire was<br />

fanned by strong winds. It quickly<br />

spread from the macrocarpa<br />

hedge to the farm buildings and<br />

came within 2m of the house.<br />

“We managed to stop it spreading<br />

to the house,” Greenwood<br />

Greenwood said the macrocarpa<br />

Firefighters had the fire under<br />

four hours at the scene.<br />

Charges laid<br />

over alleged<br />

pensioner attack<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

FOUR YOUTHS from<br />

Christchurch have been charged<br />

in relation to an alleged assault<br />

on a Prebbleton pensioner in<br />

January.<br />

The teenagers have been<br />

charged with unlawfully<br />

taking a motor vehicle and<br />

theft, while two of them are<br />

also facing aggravated robbery<br />

charges in connection with the<br />

alleged assault on Birchs Rd.<br />

They are being dealt with in<br />

the Youth Court.<br />

The victim, aged in his 70s,<br />

heard a noise on his property<br />

about 9.20pm and went outside<br />

to find his shed being broken<br />

into. A youth was holding a petrol<br />

can. Three other youths ran<br />

from the shed and the elderly<br />

man was allegedly punched in<br />

the eye.<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> youth aid officer<br />

Senior Constable Bruce Ward<br />

said it had been good to see the<br />

case result in charges following<br />

good work from officers at the<br />

Christchurch youth crime unit.<br />

It had been a serious incident<br />

and one which was rare for the<br />

district.<br />

“We don’t come across this<br />

sort of offending very often at<br />

all, especially in <strong>Selwyn</strong>,” Ward<br />

Christchurch on Sunday as the<br />

nationwide Groundswell Mother<br />

Hundreds of tractors, utes and<br />

trucks formed a rolling convoy,<br />

coming in from as far away as<br />

Sheffield, via State Highway 73,<br />

and as far away as Leeston, via<br />

Rolleston, to Memorial Ave.<br />

Sheffield farmer Derek Bull,<br />

who co-organised the lobby<br />

group’s first protest at Darfield<br />

in July, said this time around<br />

it was a “spectacular” show<br />

of dissatisfaction with the<br />

Government, with more people<br />

than expected turning up. The<br />

message had not been muddled<br />

by inappropriate signs, or<br />

factions hijacking it, as had been<br />

reported from some other parts<br />

of the country.<br />

This meant that farmers’ message<br />

came across loud and clear,<br />

with signs on vehicles giving<br />

a clear visual display against a<br />

noisy backdrop of tooting of<br />

horns and cheers from supporters.<br />

Top of many of protestors’<br />

minds was Three Waters,<br />

Top tips for using your water sense:<br />

· Use a watering can or hand-held hose instead of a sprinkler<br />

· Avoid unnecessary water use during peak demand times<br />

to help maintain water pressure for everyone<br />

Don’t irrigate between 6–9am or 4–9pm daily<br />

Man faces<br />

charges over<br />

car crash<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

A 36-YEAR-OLD man from<br />

Christchurch has been charged<br />

following a car crash that injured<br />

an elderly couple at Lincoln on<br />

October 19.<br />

A police spokesperson said the<br />

man had been charged with operating<br />

a vehicle carelessly, refusing<br />

a request for a blood specimen<br />

and driving while suspended.<br />

He allegedly crashed his car<br />

into that of the elderly Lincoln<br />

couple as they drove on Gerald St<br />

about 1pm. They were travelling<br />

south when a motorist behind<br />

them drove to the left of their<br />

vehicle. The motorist then veered<br />

right and hit their vehicle’s side<br />

and front.<br />

“Thank god for seat belts, they<br />

saved us,” the Lincoln man told<br />

the <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> after the crash.<br />

He and his wife were taken<br />

in and looked after by the crew<br />

at the nearby Property Brokers,<br />

before being taken to hospital<br />

by ambulance. They received<br />

bruising to their ribs and sternum<br />

from the seat belts.<br />

The alleged offender is<br />

scheduled to appear in<br />

Christchurch District Court on<br />

December 15.<br />

THE DISTRICT council is<br />

worried the Government’s new<br />

intensification housing plan will<br />

bring unwelcome social and<br />

infrastructure issues.<br />

The district council has expressed<br />

concern over the broad<br />

approach of the Government’s<br />

new housing intensification<br />

rules, and the speed at which<br />

they are being introduced.<br />

“In our<br />

submission we<br />

have made it<br />

really clear that<br />

such a broadbrush<br />

approach<br />

to enabling<br />

housing intensification<br />

will not deliver<br />

well-balanced<br />

well-being<br />

outcomes for present and future<br />

generations,” Mayor Sam<br />

Broughton said.<br />

“While the Bill might help the<br />

housing supply shortage it could<br />

equally lead to an unwelcome<br />

social and infrastructure issues,”<br />

The district council supports<br />

more housing for the growing<br />

population, but has raised concerns<br />

about the approach in its<br />

submission made yesterday on<br />

the Resource Management (Enabling<br />

Housing Supply and other<br />

matters) Amendment Bill.<br />

The Bill, currently before<br />

select committee, would allow<br />

three homes of up to three<br />

storeys high to be built without<br />

a resource consent on most<br />

residential areas in New Zealand<br />

largest urban areas, including<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> district, from August<br />

next year.<br />

The Bill is particularly relevant<br />

to <strong>Selwyn</strong>, which continues to<br />

be the fastest growing district in<br />

the country, both in terms of the<br />

total number of new residents<br />

and percentage growth.<br />

The most recent Stats NZ<br />

Population Estimates to June 30<br />

showed <strong>Selwyn</strong> grew by 3400<br />

people from 2020 to <strong>2021</strong>. This<br />

Intensification brings social concerns<br />

Sam<br />

Broughton<br />

was the largest increase in the<br />

country.<br />

“We support the Government’s<br />

aims to address New<br />

Zealand’s housing shortage and<br />

enable a wider range of housing<br />

options, including more affordable<br />

homes,” said Mayor Sam<br />

Broughton.<br />

“However, given the significant<br />

impact this Bill has on our<br />

council’s land use and infrastructure<br />

planning, we are frustrated<br />

that the Government only<br />

allowed a very short submission<br />

period which prevented us consulting<br />

with our community on<br />

The district council’s key<br />

concerns with the Bill are:<br />

• No information is provided<br />

on how infrastructure supporting<br />

the new developments would<br />

be planned and funded<br />

• It is unclear how it impacts<br />

Work to save<br />

kauri<br />

recognised<br />

LINCOLN University Associate<br />

Professor Dr Amanda Black’s<br />

work to save threatened kauri<br />

forests by understanding<br />

important soil microbes is being<br />

recognised by the Royal Society<br />

Te Apārangi.<br />

Black is co-director of Bioprotection<br />

Aotearoa, and one of 11<br />

researchers awarded Rutherford<br />

Discovery Fellowships.<br />

Her research entitled Genomes<br />

to giants: Restoring resilient soil<br />

ecosystems in kauri forests was<br />

cited by the Royal Society Te<br />

Apārangi.<br />

“Microbes in soil – tiny living<br />

forms that are found all around<br />

us, too small to be seen by the<br />

naked eye – have a big role to play<br />

in making kauri trees dominant<br />

in our forests,’’ Black said.<br />

She said since European settlement,<br />

kauri forests have been<br />

significantly reduced, covering<br />

less than four per cent of their<br />

original pre-1800s land-range.<br />

“Kauri are now threatened<br />

with extinction through<br />

the loss of vital elements in<br />

soil such as nitrogen and<br />

phosphorus with the extinction<br />

of seabird populations, forest<br />

fragmentation, and invasive plant<br />

pathogens such as Phytophthora<br />

agathidicida, the causative agent<br />

of kauri dieback.”<br />

OUR PEOPLE – KATE WILLIAMSON<br />

Beating illness through tennis<br />

Ladbrooks’ Kate<br />

Williamson studied<br />

criminal law, and<br />

worked as a probation<br />

officer and recruitment<br />

agent. Now the 33-yearold<br />

has returned to a<br />

sporting passion of her<br />

childhood to become<br />

a professional tennis<br />

coach, which has<br />

helped her fight off<br />

a rare disease. Susan<br />

Sandys reports<br />

What are the highs and lows<br />

of being a professional tennis<br />

coach?<br />

I’m region coach for Ellesmere<br />

Tennis Association, coaching the<br />

rep teams within the Ellesmere<br />

region. I’m also head coach of<br />

Prebbleton Tennis Club, Lincoln<br />

Tennis Club and Ladbrooks<br />

Tennis Club. I definitely love<br />

working for myself. But there’s<br />

always nights when it’s freezing<br />

cold in the middle of winter,<br />

and it’s eight o’clock at night,<br />

and you are thinking: ‘Office<br />

job nine to five would be quite<br />

good right now.’ I don’t see (my<br />

partner) Julian until nine o’clock<br />

most nights. Mostly I teach kids,<br />

aged five to 18, but adults on a<br />

private basis. It’s really full on,<br />

I have a whole new respect for<br />

teachers. It’s so rewarding at the<br />

same time. If the kids weren’t<br />

enjoying it, I wouldn’t do it. I am<br />

now working alongside Tennis<br />

NZ which is a role I am really<br />

passionate about, as a coach<br />

developer. I go around different<br />

regions teaching other coaches<br />

or volunteers how to coach.<br />

How did you start playing<br />

tennis?<br />

My dad owns a motorcycle<br />

company, so I grew up riding<br />

motorbikes. My parents did not<br />

play tennis, but they took me<br />

along to a holiday Have A Go<br />

session at Prebbleton when I<br />

was eight. I wore completely non<br />

tennis clothes, and I had a silly<br />

old racket from The Warehouse,<br />

which nowadays I would<br />

cringe at. I was wearing a black<br />

flowery skirt, probably not even<br />

sneakers.<br />

Your passion for tennis took<br />

off from there?<br />

I joined up to local tennis<br />

training sessions at my school,<br />

Ladbrooks primary. The first rep<br />

team I ever made was the under<br />

12 girls team for Ellesmere. I<br />

kept playing for Ladbrooks until<br />

I was 13 and then I got asked to<br />

play in the Ellesmere senior A<br />

grade competition, so that was<br />

with all adults. I was only 13 and<br />

I started playing in the top grade<br />

you can play in in Ellesmere.<br />

You must have been the<br />

youngest there at that time?<br />

Yes, some of my mixed double<br />

partners were 50, 60 years old,<br />

so I learned a lot from them. I<br />

matured as a player, through<br />

learning tactics and tennis<br />

etiquette, that you perhaps miss<br />

when you are only a junior player.<br />

Did you continue playing<br />

through high school?<br />

I went to Lincoln High School,<br />

which wasn’t a big tennis school.<br />

But they had the year 9 tennis<br />

cup, which I won, and then<br />

eventually we did start a tennis<br />

team. My best friend played<br />

tennis as well, there’s a picture<br />

of us in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong>. We<br />

played in the South Island<br />

secondary schools tournament.<br />

We qualified for that, it was kind<br />

of the start of Lincoln getting<br />

involved with tennis more.<br />

What did you do when you<br />

left school?<br />

When I was 18 years old,<br />

friends and parties became<br />

more of a priority. I would<br />

still play tennis, but I wouldn’t<br />

train during the week. I went<br />

to Canterbury uni, did a<br />

double degree, a BA and law.<br />

At university, tennis became<br />

even less of a priority. Although<br />

I still did play, and we played<br />

a law exchange with Dunedin<br />

university. I went up to<br />

Auckland University for my<br />

sixth and final year to do a<br />

postgraduate honours degree<br />

in criminology. After moving<br />

back home to Ladbrooks in<br />

2013, I got a job working for the<br />

Department of Corrections, as<br />

a probation officer, for about six<br />

months.<br />

That would have been an<br />

interesting job?<br />

It was a whole realisation for<br />

me, that the world isn’t such a<br />

pretty place in some areas. It was<br />

a long way from the nice, happy<br />

tennis clubs of Ellesmere. I gave<br />

up the position to move to Perth,<br />

to be with Julian, who worked<br />

in the mining industry. He had<br />

been flying back to Christchurch<br />

for his one week in five to visit<br />

me, it was quite the love story.<br />

What did you do in Perth?<br />

I ended up working in the oil<br />

and gas industry in recruitment,<br />

one of the biggest oil and gas<br />

companies in the world, Brunel.<br />

They were a huge company,<br />

so that was a great two years.<br />

Then one day the role actually<br />

changed, it suddenly became<br />

more about sales and having<br />

to get the work rather than fill<br />

the work. I decided I hated it, it<br />

wasn’t as fun anymore, I handed<br />

in my notice.<br />

So you became unemployed?<br />

When I quit, I decided: ‘Why<br />

not be a yoga teacher?’ I trained as<br />

a yoga teacher. At the same time,<br />

I had joined the Royal King’s<br />

Park Tennis Club in the city. So<br />

I started playing tennis more<br />

than I ever had. I made the top<br />

women’s team at the club, we had<br />

free coaching sessions, I started<br />

working as a tennis coach. I also<br />

trained and worked as a massage<br />

therapist. I worked for myself<br />

now, I was my own boss. We<br />

moved back home to Ladbrooks<br />

in 2016. I trained in tennis<br />

coaching and am ITF qualified.<br />

Do you still teach yoga?<br />

I had to give up in 2019. I got<br />

too busy in tennis, but I also got<br />

diagnosed with a really serious<br />

illness, Cushing’s Syndrome. So<br />

I ended up with this rare disease,<br />

which destroyed me. They think<br />

that the tumour, which is what<br />

I had on my adrenal gland, had<br />

been growing since 2016. That<br />

was when I actually randomly<br />

put on 20kg in two months, and<br />

was 80kg. Long story short, I<br />

kept trying to lose the weight<br />

and then two or three years went<br />

on and I was just getting bigger<br />

and bigger. I had insomnia, I had<br />

acne, I had my hair falling out<br />

and my blood pressure was 190. I<br />

had to be kept in hospital until it<br />

could be brought down. Instead<br />

of producing, say, 400 millilitres<br />

of cortisol, I was producing 3000.<br />

That’s the adrenaline hormone,<br />

so it feels like your body is a<br />

constant state of stress. It was<br />

this horrible, horrible disease.<br />

At the end of 2019, I was getting<br />

sicker, I got other people to cover<br />

my tennis, my sister Beth was<br />

also a tennis coach. Everyone<br />

was amazing in the tennis<br />

community, the support really<br />

got me through.<br />

How did you recover?<br />

I saw an endocrinologist, went<br />

on a surgery waiting list. In<br />

March 2020, I got my adrenal<br />

gland and my tumour removed.<br />

Very luckily, it wasn’t cancerous;<br />

you don’t know until it is taken<br />

out. After the surgery, I produced<br />

no cortisol. Even though you<br />

have two adrenal glands, the<br />

other one turned off, because my<br />

right one had been producing so<br />

much. So I went through a whole<br />

period for 2020, from March to<br />

October, being like a drug addict<br />

coming off drugs (withdrawing<br />

from high cortisol levels). I<br />

couldn’t walk I couldn’t go to the<br />

toilet, I would lie in bed shaking,<br />

fevers, spewing. So I got put on<br />

replacement steroids, but it still<br />

wasn’t enough. I had moved<br />

back in with mum and dad. That<br />

whole period of recovery was<br />

actually harder than having the<br />

disease itself. I went through<br />

extreme anxiety, depression,<br />

which I had never had in my life.<br />

Are you better now?<br />

Eventually, I started coaching<br />

again, at the end of 2020. I got<br />

extreme joint pain and I still get<br />

that, I kept fighting through.<br />

I have slowly got better and<br />

better. I have lost 25kg over the<br />

past year. A couple of months<br />

ago, I went to the hospital and<br />

got given the all clear. So my<br />

remaining adrenal gland has<br />

started working again. I’m cured<br />

from Cushing’s, but I still live<br />

with the after effects. I am now<br />

taking no medication, which is<br />

massive, the anxiety has gone<br />

the depression has gone, now<br />

I can recognise myself again.<br />

With Cushing’s, you not only put<br />

on weight, but your whole face<br />

blows up and you essentially lose<br />

your eyes, your face become so<br />

puffy. I don’t have that feeling of<br />

shame and embarrassment with<br />

how I look, it’s amazing how that<br />

can change your confidence.<br />

Did tennis help with your<br />

recovery?<br />

Yes, it gave me something to<br />

strive for. I wanted to be back<br />

full strength coaching, so I<br />

worked lots in the gym. You get<br />

a lot of muscle wastage, I lost all<br />

my strength. I slowly worked on<br />

building and building , so I can<br />

run again, and run on a tennis<br />

court and hit balls. I would get<br />

out and practice doing those<br />

things.<br />

SURGERY: Last year in March, Williamson underwent<br />

surgery to have an adrenal gland and tumour removed so<br />

she could begin to recover from Cushing’s syndrome.

A <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> reader expresses opinion on the Lincoln Maternity Hospital<br />

THE LINCOLN Maternity<br />

Hospital should somehow be<br />

retained for various reasons,<br />

importantly as a symbol of<br />

respect for the huge part it has<br />

played in the community.<br />

Lincoln has lost it village<br />

feeling, retaining the hospital is<br />

important as the building should<br />

have heritage status. It also plays<br />

an important part in keeping<br />

Lincoln a proud village in which<br />

to live.<br />

It’s not about how many homes<br />

you could fit on the site.<br />

What are the options to<br />

retaining the building as a<br />

very important part of our<br />

community? – Colin Giddens,<br />

Building<br />

consent<br />

team praised<br />

THE DISTRICT council’s building<br />

consent team has been assessed as<br />

one of the top performing building<br />

consent authorities in the country.<br />

The latest independent<br />

accreditation assessment of<br />

the district council as a BCA<br />

was completed this month by<br />

International Accreditation New<br />

Zealand which conducts the<br />

review on behalf of the Ministry<br />

of Business, Innovation and<br />

Employment.<br />

The IANZ assessors praised the<br />

building team for maintaining its<br />

systems and processes at such a<br />

high level, given the unprecedented<br />

growth pressures the district has<br />

been under over the last year.<br />

Eight general non-compliance<br />

issues were identified, three of<br />

which were fully addressed, and<br />

four partially addressed, district<br />

council building manager Vanessa<br />

Mitchell said.<br />

One related to building consent<br />

processing time frames exceeding<br />

the statutory time frame of 20<br />

working days.<br />

Mitchell said proactive measures<br />

have seen the average consent<br />

processing time reducing from an<br />

average of 34 working days in July<br />

to <strong>24</strong> days in October.<br />

This comes in spite of an<br />

increasing number of consent<br />

applications.<br />

HUNDREDS OF orders have<br />

flooded in to a new online meal<br />

order and delivery platform<br />

following its launch in the<br />

district.<br />

Delivereasy is a New Zealandowned<br />

and operated service<br />

which started in Wellington<br />

about five years ago.<br />

Chief operating officer Quinn<br />

Davis is based in Wellington<br />

but is at the Christchurch office<br />

this month as he gets the <strong>Selwyn</strong><br />

operation off the ground.<br />

It launched on <strong>November</strong> 10,<br />

and in its first week, hundreds<br />

of orders flooded in. There are<br />

about 20 restaurants on board, at<br />

Lincoln and Rolleston. Customers<br />

order via the Delivereasy app<br />

or website, but must be located<br />

in the general vicinity of Lincoln<br />

and Rolleston or surrounding<br />

areas such as Springston, Burnham,<br />

West Melton, Prebbleton,<br />

Tai Tapu and Templeton, to<br />

ensure speed of delivery.<br />

Davis said new customers had<br />

been eager to utilise the new<br />

service, especially considering<br />

the district did not already have<br />

any similar service, such as Uber<br />

Eats.<br />

There had been no glitches to<br />

date, and he had received emails<br />

from customers praising the<br />

service.<br />

“You do get a lot of customers<br />

just being thankful that we are<br />

there,” Davis said.<br />

“It’s early days, so it’s only<br />

going to grow from here. It’s<br />

pretty exciting, it’s all been good<br />

timing.”<br />

The timing had been perfect,<br />

as it was when <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s population<br />

was expanding and the<br />

dining scene was growing, with<br />

new restaurants establishing in<br />

the district.<br />

Restaurants on board to<br />

date include Joe’s Garage,<br />

Hachi Hachi and Little India<br />

at Rolleston, and Mexicali<br />

Fresh and NomNom Kitchen<br />

at Lincoln. Fast food outlets of<br />

McDonald’s and Subway are also<br />

on board.<br />

Davis said the service had<br />

signed up about 30 drivers, who<br />

work as independent contractors.<br />

Delivereasy has about 1300<br />

drivers around the country.<br />

There were no plans at this<br />

stage to expand the service to<br />

include other towns in <strong>Selwyn</strong>,<br />

but this could be something<br />

Delivereasy would look at in the<br />

future.<br />

Davis said Delivereasy had<br />

grown steadily throughout New<br />

Zealand since being established,<br />

but had grown even further with<br />

the pandemic forcing people to<br />

dine at home.<br />

“It’s been a pretty crazy<br />

year and a half, it’s definitely<br />

skyrocketed since the<br />

lockdowns.”<br />

SPORT 15<br />

DARFIELD maintained their<br />

lead at the top of Canterbury<br />

country’s premier grade<br />

one-day cricket competition<br />

with a commanding win over<br />

competition rivals Cheviot.<br />

There were also wins for<br />

Oxford-Rangiora, Sefton, and<br />

Weedons in seventh-round action<br />

on Saturday.<br />

At the picturesque Cheviot<br />

Domain, Darfield batted first<br />

and got off to the perfect start<br />

with openers Nick Jenkins and<br />

Liam Foulkes putting on 127<br />

runs for the first wicket.<br />

When Foulkes was out for 45,<br />

Canterbury star Henry Shipley,<br />

fresh from his latest heroics in<br />

the Plunket Shield, smashed<br />

42 off just 21 balls to keep the<br />

momentum going.<br />

Jenkins was out in the 22nd<br />

over for 77 off 65 balls, a knock<br />

instrumental in driving Darfield<br />

to <strong>24</strong>9/8 in their allotted 45<br />

overs.<br />

Scott Burnett was the standout<br />

Cheviot bowler, claiming a fivewicket<br />

bag.<br />

Shipley opened the Darfield<br />

bowling and removed Ted<br />

Whelan and the dangerous<br />

Harry Fitzpatrick, before Liam<br />

Foulkes’ off-spin through the<br />

middle overs completed the<br />

dominant win.<br />

Only Cheviot opener Ryan Ellis,<br />

with a well-made 61, showed<br />

much resilience as Cheviot<br />

collapsed to be all out for 129 in<br />

the 33rd over, falling to a heavy<br />

120-run defeat.<br />

Oxford-Rangiora, with a few<br />

of their consistent performers<br />

away, picked up a quality 80-run<br />

victory over Ohoka at Mandeville.<br />

New opening pair Jonty Fleming<br />

(44 off 68) and Eden Sinclair<br />

(40 off 90) set up the win with<br />

a fine 83-run opening stand, as<br />

Oxford-Rangiora made 169/8 in<br />

their 45 overs.<br />

A similarly depleted Ohoka<br />

never threatened the total<br />

especially after Jake Waghorn<br />

knocked off three key scalps at<br />

the top of the order.<br />

Then it was Nathan Cook<br />

who stole the show, the left-arm<br />

spinner ripped through the<br />

remainder of the Ohoka order to<br />

finish with the superb figures of<br />

6/22 from 6.3 overs.<br />

Sefton overcame Leeston-<br />

Southbridge to claim a solid<br />

away victory, after defending<br />

237/6.<br />

Five Sefton players scored<br />

more than 30, with Matt Laffey<br />

Big win keeps Darfield at top-of-table<br />

After Canterbury seamer<br />

Fraser Sheat blasted out three<br />

top-order wickets, Toby Doyle<br />

(49 off 57) and Chris Beatson (49<br />

off 65) set about resurrecting the<br />

chase.<br />

But when they fell in the 21st<br />

and 26th overs respectively,<br />

nobody else was able to step up<br />

and the visitors claimed a 72-run<br />

victory.<br />

In the final game of the round,<br />

Weedons walloped Lincoln by 83<br />

runs, with Brad Nightingale the<br />

standout performer, top-scoring<br />

with 64.<br />

Southbrook had the bye.<br />

• By Jonny Turner<br />

THERE WAS little rest for Craig<br />

Thornley after he brought up his<br />

700th driving win at Timaru on<br />

Saturday.<br />

The Aylesbury reinsman<br />

brought up the milestone<br />

with a winning double for key<br />

supporter Donna Williamson<br />

on her home track with two<br />

of his signature front-running<br />

drives behind Clyde and The<br />

Dominator.<br />

By Sunday morning<br />

Thornley and Williamson<br />

were combining again – but<br />

this time with the racehorses of<br />

tomorrow.<br />

Thornley was on deck at<br />

Williamson’s Belmont stud, just<br />

a matter of metres from Phar<br />

Lap Raceway, where three foals<br />

were born overnight and there<br />

were plenty of mares to scan to<br />

ready them for the delivery of<br />

their foals next spring.<br />

The reinsman, whose career<br />

highlights include Group 1 wins<br />

with Franco Nelson and Nearea<br />

Franco and an Interdominion<br />

victory with Play On, said<br />

bringing up win 700 was made<br />

more special by it coming in<br />

Williamson’s colours on her<br />

home track.<br />

“You know it is always going to<br />

come – you’d like to think – but<br />

it was good to get it with Donna’s<br />

horses and especially at Timaru,”<br />

Thornley said.<br />

Clyde scored by half a length<br />

after Thornley took control of<br />

race 6 by sending the trotter to<br />

the front early.<br />

The margin could have been<br />

further if Clyde hadn’t taken<br />

his work so casually in the run<br />

home.<br />

“He was going easy and even<br />

up the straight – he just loafs a<br />

wee bit.”<br />

“He never felt like he was going<br />

to get beat, in fact, neither<br />

horse felt like they were going<br />

to get beat once they got to the<br />

front.”<br />

Thornley brings up 700 wins<br />

SPECIAL: Craig Thornley was thumbs up after driving his 700th career win.<br />

Thornley also had The<br />

Dominator in front controlling<br />

race 9, the George Shand<br />

Memorial.<br />

The open class seven-year-old<br />

made light work of his 30m back<br />

mark and was leading with a lap<br />

to go following a mid-race move<br />

from his driver.<br />

“He is funny because he never<br />

used to be a great beginner but<br />

now he has turned into a really<br />

good standing start horse.<br />

“That helps when you’re off a<br />

mark, you’re there, you’re not<br />

chasing.<br />

“It makes a big difference from<br />

a handicap like that.”<br />

Once in front, The Dominator<br />

was close to a good thing given<br />

he was dropping in class after<br />

contesting the Group 1 New<br />

Zealand Trotting Free-For-All<br />

on New Zealand Cup Day.<br />

“I thought he went a really<br />

good race in the Free-For-All,<br />

he burnt hard off the gate and<br />

he ran the fastest first 200m and<br />

the third fastest last 200m of the<br />

race.<br />

“He only beat one home but<br />

he still hit the line, so it was a<br />

massive drop in class for him<br />

today.”<br />

House sets<br />

up in<br />

Waikato<br />

• By Joshua Smith<br />

MICHAEL HOUSE is sending a<br />

team of 11 horses to Morrinsville<br />

where he is setting up a satellite<br />

stable for the summer.<br />

“I have made no secret that my<br />

long-range plan was to get back<br />

to the North Island, especially<br />

when Wilson [House, son] was<br />

accepted into year 1 at vet school<br />

[at Massey University] next year,”<br />

the Prebbleton harness racing<br />

trainer said.<br />

“When Cambridge announced<br />

that they were seeking South<br />

Island horses and were offering<br />

travel subsidies I rang them and<br />

said I was interested.<br />

“They wrote to me, and it didn’t<br />

spin my wheels, it didn’t make me<br />

decide straight away, but as time<br />

went by and the three trips that<br />

we have done to the North Island<br />

have been Covid restricted with<br />

the ferries.<br />

“They are down two ferries,<br />

plus with all the extra freight it<br />

has been very difficult.<br />

“Phil Coppins came along and<br />

said he would like to help and<br />

Cambridge have been very good.<br />

Maria Enochsson is going to be<br />

leading the team up there and<br />

stay up there [Morrinsville] for<br />

the summer.”<br />

Five artists combine for our new group exhibition ‘Sum of the Parts’<br />

<strong>November</strong> 27 - December 14; on show for a shorter duration to allow<br />

for all-important Christmas pickup opportunities.<br />

Contributing artists are Christchurch Kara Burrowes and local Little<br />

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

the road from Dave Green in Rawene, and Debra Powell is from the<br />

rural Waikato hamlet of Te Pahu.<br />

Kara Burrowes is an artist and designer based in Christchurch. Her work<br />

is tactile and experimental. Using recycled wood from demolition sites, she loves<br />

the concept of transforming something quite ordinary into something precious and<br />

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

use of pattern and repetition, method and process.”<br />

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

strong narrative themes, exploring relationships between people and nature, playing<br />

with convention, and infusing the result with a gentle humour.<br />

Oxidized copper artist Jasmine Keir endeavours to create and understand the<br />

alchemy of colours achievable via her artistic process; one which uses a variety of<br />

natural ingredients to react with and manipulate the finish of her copper works.<br />

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

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

and crystal, some are lighting devices others are designed to hang in the light.<br />

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

observation of nature’s sacred geometry.”<br />

Term 4 Update<br />

Principal’s Message<br />

<strong>2021</strong> marks a special milestone in the history of<br />

Rolleston College as we bid farewell to our foundation<br />

learners. It has been a joy and a privilege to have<br />

seen these learners through their full five years of<br />

education at Rolleston College. Many now embark<br />

next year to tertiary studies or the world of work well<br />

prepared for the agility and collaborating skills to adapt<br />

to the demands of a rapidly changing society. We thank<br />

our local community for supporting these learners through their<br />

5 years with opportunities for work experience, sponsorship and<br />

guidance.<br />

Rachel Skelton, Principal<br />

Rolleston College Leadership<br />

The Rolleston Spirit<br />

There are many different Leadership<br />

opportunities at Rolleston College and<br />

these reflect the many different<br />

ways in which someone can<br />

show leadership and give back<br />

to the College.<br />

A very thorough process<br />

took place at the end of<br />

Term 3 and the start of<br />

Term 4. This process<br />

involved applications,<br />

speeches, group<br />

interviews and individual<br />

interviews to select our<br />

Year 13 leadership positions.<br />

The next step is to select<br />

our Year 10 - 12 Whanau<br />

Ambassadors and this will be<br />

completed by the end of Term 4.<br />

TROTTING maestro Paul<br />

Nairn left Motukarara<br />

Raceway a happy man on<br />

Sunday after securing the<br />

perfect result with his two<br />

runners.<br />

Full of Hope got his day<br />

off to a positive start when<br />

taking out the Northern<br />

Rivers Equine – Pastor Stephen<br />

At Llowalong Farm<br />

Trot (2170m) and three<br />

races later he was back in<br />

the winner’s circle courtesy<br />

of three-year-old filly Resolve<br />

in the John Morrison<br />

Racing Trot (2170m).<br />

“I was happy with<br />

both horses. I think they<br />

both went in with a good<br />

show and it was nice that<br />

it worked out today,”<br />

Leeston-based Nairn said.<br />

Full Of Hope secured<br />

her fifth win with a frontrunning<br />

effort and she<br />

enjoyed being back on the<br />

grass surface.<br />

“She has been a nice<br />

mare, she has won five<br />

races now. She seems to<br />

like the grass, she has won<br />

about three on the grass.”<br />

Full Of Hope is one of<br />

only two live foals from her<br />

sire Waterloo Sunset’s first<br />

crop, with Nairn standing<br />

the son of Sundon at stud.<br />

“He only had two live<br />

foals in his first year and<br />

the other one was Gil<br />

Favor and he has gone onto<br />

from just five starts.<br />

“She is a nice type of filly.<br />

She should have a good<br />

future.”<br />

New performing<br />

arts class to bring joy<br />

Adam Hayward from Arts Integrated<br />

meets with students from Waitaha School<br />

Young people living with disabilities will take to the stage in <strong>Selwyn</strong>’s newest performing arts class<br />

in February 2022, with support from the Council.<br />

The introductory course run by Arts Integrated and supported by the <strong>Selwyn</strong> Creative Community<br />

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

Arts Integrated tutor Sam Corry and former Arts Integrated student, Samuel Major-Johnson.<br />

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

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

with workplace skills.<br />

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

for youth with disabilities by offering recreational programmes in the performing arts, as well as<br />

opportunities for their students to become paid assistant tutors in their programmes.<br />

Arts Integrated has been active in <strong>Selwyn</strong> working with Waitaha School students. They are grateful<br />

to be receiving this fund and excited to offer their courses to people in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> district.<br />

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

Friday 26 <strong>November</strong>.<br />

Council raises concerns about new housing rules<br />

The Council has expressed concern over the broad approach of the Government’s new housing<br />

intensification rules, and the speed at which they are being introduced.<br />

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

more housing options including more affordable homes. It raised concerns about the approach in<br />

its submission made last week on the Resource Management (Enabling Housing Supply and other<br />

matters) Amendment Bill.<br />

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

consent in residential areas of <strong>Selwyn</strong>, from August 2022.<br />

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

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

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

Mayor Broughton says.<br />

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

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

community,” he says.<br />

The Council’s full submission can be found on selwyn.govt.nz<br />

Faces of <strong>Selwyn</strong> - Dishing up<br />

cooking and sustainability skills<br />

At Monika Rastogi’s home you are greeted by the smell of warm<br />

Indian spices.<br />

In her kitchen Monika is preparing a delicious vegetable curry. Her<br />

six year old son Rayaan is busy chopping carrots.<br />

“I started involving Rayaan in cooking when he was just three. Now<br />

at the age of six he has already participated in three competitions!”<br />

Monika explains.<br />

Monika is passionate about getting children from five years up<br />

involved with cooking, as it is an essential life skill that involves<br />

focusing, problem solving, following instructions, and can boost<br />

confidence. “I love seeing smiles on children’s faces when they<br />

chop and prepare their own meal.”<br />

Originally from India, Monika and husband Manu moved to New<br />

Zealand in 2012, after living in Bangladesh and China.<br />

When Rayaan was two, the family began looking to buy their first<br />

home, close to a primary school and in a good community – they<br />

chose Prebbleton.<br />

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

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

belonging - that sense of family - makes this country our home now.”<br />

When they moved to New Zealand Monika particularly missed<br />

India’s events and festivities, late night shopping and the food.<br />

So Monika decided to bring what she missed from India to New<br />

Zealand, starting non-profit workshops teaching others how to cook<br />

authentic North Indian cuisine and about sustainability; what they<br />

can grow from a seed, cuttings and food scraps.<br />

When she’s not cooking or working as an early childhood reliever,<br />

Monika is active as a Lincoln Scouts leader, cricket coach,<br />

Christchurch peony club secretary, member of <strong>Selwyn</strong> Timebank<br />

and a volunteer, delivering food to those in need.<br />

Faces of <strong>Selwyn</strong> tells the stories behind the many faces we see<br />

around us in <strong>Selwyn</strong>. To hear the full interview with Monika or listen<br />

Council’s building team praised for its performance<br />

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

authorities (BCA) in the country.<br />

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

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

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

such a high level, especially given the unprecedented growth pressures <strong>Selwyn</strong> has been under.<br />

They also commended the team for its continuous improvement.<br />

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

continuous improvement mean IANZ considers the Council to pose a ‘low risk’.<br />

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

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

One issue was building consent processing timeframes exceeding the statutory timeframe of 20<br />

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

of trained building control officers.<br />

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

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

average of 34 working days in July to <strong>24</strong> days in October.<br />

This comes despite an increasing number of consent applications.<br />

Council building manager Vanessa Mitchell says the assessment results can reassure people that the<br />

Council has good systems and processes in place.<br />

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

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

smoothly,” she says.<br />

Mike Bowie is an ecologist who specialises in<br />

entomology (insects and other invertebrates). Each<br />

week he introduces a new species found in his<br />

backyard at Lincoln. His column aims to raise public<br />

awareness of biodiversity, the variety of living things<br />

around us. Check out the full list of invertebrates<br />

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

Light attracts bug<br />

we know little about<br />

TURNING YOUR outside<br />

light on at night is a great way<br />

to survey the local moth fauna,<br />

but moths aren’t the only critters<br />

you attract.<br />

Beetles, wasps, caddisflies,<br />

spiders, mites and flies can all be<br />

seen around lights.<br />

Back in August, I found a<br />

true bug called Wekamiris<br />

auropilosus. This species is<br />

orange-brown to dark brown in<br />

colour with intricate patterns or<br />

markings on its back. It also has<br />

a small yellow head with large<br />

“buggy” eyes, compared to its<br />

head size.<br />

The species is 4-6mm long and<br />

occurs throughout New Zealand,<br />

including some offshore<br />

islands.<br />

Very little is known about<br />

this species, but it has been<br />

found on Pseudopanax<br />

species, Olearia ilicifolia,<br />

Muehlenbeckia, Nothofagus,<br />

ferns, tussock, and litter of Pinus<br />

radiata.<br />

Aggressive look for new Outlander<br />

THERE IS NO doubt Mitsubishi<br />

make particularly good cars,<br />

they also make particularly good<br />

television advertisements.<br />

One I find quite entertaining is<br />

that for the outgoing Outlander, it<br />

demonstrates the amount of space<br />

inside the mid-size sport utility<br />

vehicle and includes my favourite<br />

segment, Monty the white persian<br />

cat getting a short shrift from<br />

sleeping comfortably inside the car.<br />

Mitsubishi had a successful<br />

Outlander runout and it has<br />

been replaced with a new<br />

generation model, although the<br />

concept of old has been very much<br />

maintained.<br />

The newcomer has a fresh<br />

exterior design, it is squared-off<br />

up front with an aggressive grille,<br />

bumper and bold headlight shrouds.<br />

There’s also a new driveline,<br />

well, there is a new engine, the<br />

2.5-litre petrol unit is coupled to<br />

continuously variable transmission<br />

that Mitsubishi has utilised to<br />

good effect for many years now in<br />

the Outlander and other models.<br />

As before, the Outlander is also<br />

available in three front and three<br />

four-wheel-drive variants.<br />

The six-model range starts at<br />

$41,990 for the 2WD LS and ends<br />

at $54,990 for the seven-seat 4WD<br />

VRX, which is the subject of this<br />

evaluation.<br />

Like most car builders these<br />

days Mitsubishi isn’t immune from<br />

manufacturing and supply issues<br />

due to an ever-increasing global<br />

shortage of microchips and semiconductors,<br />

and depending on the<br />

time of purchase that could well<br />

determine specification inclusions.<br />

However, Mitsubishi are<br />

reasonably well placed and the new<br />

Outlander in VRX form is highly<br />

specced. Major items include full<br />

leather trim with heated seats<br />

up front and in the second row,<br />

electric seat adjustment, headup<br />

display, Bose audio, electric<br />

panoramic sunroof, kick-motion<br />

tailgate, wireless smartphone<br />

charging, triple-zone climate<br />

control and satellite navigation that<br />

sits in a large and comprehensive<br />

central touch screen.<br />

It was a bit of a surprise to learn<br />

there was a completely new engine<br />

for Outlander. The old 2.4-litre<br />

unit served the Outlander well<br />

and was a real honey in terms of<br />

how it operated. Nevertheless,<br />

the new engine picks up the<br />

same fundamentals, it is quiet,<br />

has efficiency and is relatively<br />

powerful. It has power outputs of<br />

135kW and <strong>24</strong>5Nm, up 9kW and<br />

21Nm respectively from the old.<br />

The <strong>24</strong>88cc unit is also listed with<br />

an 8.1l/100km combined cycle<br />

average.<br />

That’s quite good for a big<br />

petrol-powered SUV and they<br />

VERSATILE: Twenty-inch wheels on the Outlander help<br />

raise ground clearance and offer off-road flexibility.<br />

MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER VRX: Bold front end and new engine for latest generation model.<br />

are figures I would rate as<br />

being achievable under perfect<br />

conditions. During my evaluation<br />

time, the readout was constantly<br />

sitting around 9l/100km. That<br />

included a lot of inner-city driving<br />

and my usual highway run. At<br />

100km/h the engine is loping over<br />

gently at 1500rpm, returning an<br />

instantaneous figure of 4.8l/100km.<br />

On the subject of figures, the<br />

Outlander will accelerate from a<br />

standstill to 100km/h in 9sec and<br />

will complete a highway overtake<br />

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

The engine works fluidly through<br />

the transmission, that’s one of<br />

the benefits of CVT, it allows the<br />

engine to work freely and, as such,<br />

is highly responsive, it isn’t flighty<br />

but it works the entire rev band<br />

willingly. The driver has the use of<br />

a paddle-shift gearing selector, it<br />

will lock the transmission into one<br />

of eight steps, which is useful for<br />

travelling on hill roads and many<br />

other applications.<br />

There’s also an economical mode<br />

that dulls the throttle response in<br />

the interests of saving fuel use.<br />

Mitsubishi builds great fourwheel-drive<br />

systems, and the new<br />

Outlander has the benefit of years<br />

of development through previous<br />

generation models and the likes<br />

of Lancer Evolution, Triton<br />

and Pajero models. The Super<br />

All-Wheel-Control system has<br />

many driver-selectable functions<br />

• Price – Mitsubishi<br />

Outlander VRX 4WD,<br />

$54,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4710mm; width, 1862mm;<br />

height, 1748mm<br />

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,<br />

four-wheel-drive,<br />

<strong>24</strong>88cc, 135kW, <strong>24</strong>5Nm,<br />

eight-step continuously<br />

variable automatic<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 9sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 8.1/100km<br />

through a centre console dial. The<br />

evaluation car had only travelled<br />

400km when I picked it up, so I<br />

wasn’t prepared to drive crosscountry,<br />

but I did tackle a short offthe-seal<br />

road near Hororata, and<br />

could certainly feel drive kicking in<br />

through all four corners.<br />

The Hororata River was merely<br />

a dribble as I drove through the<br />

rocky river floor, it was a good<br />

test of suspension control, the<br />

four-strut system soaking up<br />

well the uneven surface. That’s<br />

another Outlander credential, it<br />

is occupant-friendly with wellcushioned<br />

underpinnings.<br />

That would also be a hard<br />

equation to get right, the<br />

newcomer sits on low profile 20in<br />

Bridgestone tyres (255/45), yet ride<br />

comfort hasn’t been jeopardised,<br />

the suspension has absorption<br />

and with supple seating the new<br />

Outlander is comfortable and<br />

relaxing to drive.<br />

With those big tyres there<br />

is also much feedback at the<br />

steering wheel and positive<br />

corner turn-in, accuracy is<br />

precise. Getting a big SUV to<br />

steer well is a big ask for the<br />

suspension engineers, but<br />

I’m pleased to report the new<br />

Outlander has control and a<br />

deliberate handling quality.<br />

When pushed into some corner<br />

challenges it feels rigid and stable,<br />

the high-quality tyres dealing to<br />

everything asked of them.<br />

More than anything the new<br />

Outlander is the useful wagon we<br />

have come to know and appreciate<br />

the model for. It, too, has the space<br />

inside that Mitsubishi has marketed<br />

well in previous generation models.<br />

Occupants seated in the rear row<br />

should be thankful, it’s really just<br />

an area for children or small adults,<br />

yet it doesn’t feel confined back<br />

there and getting in and out isn’t<br />

too onerous.<br />

The new Outlander has a certain<br />

finesse, especially in VRX form,<br />

it is plush and incredibly well<br />

appointed, I’m sure Monty would<br />

approve.<br />

I can’t wait to see Mitsubishi’s<br />

promotional material for the<br />

newcomer, the advertising agency<br />

has a hard act to follow.<br />

MY PRIDE AND JOY<br />

Girls’ Club Caravanning<br />

promotes independence<br />

Jobs, schedules and circumstances<br />

often restrict family holidays, but not for<br />

Dot; with two daughters (12 and 15) and<br />

a busy husband, Dot found a solution.<br />

Her husband couldn’t always take time<br />

off work, so with support, a pinch of<br />

confidence and freedom to visit amazing<br />

destinations, Dot started their “Girls’ Club<br />

Caravanning” eight years ago.<br />

The family enjoys year-round holidays<br />

with their Lunar Chateau caravan, staying<br />

dry and warm with electric blankets<br />

in winter. The caravan was chosen for<br />

quality, size and affordability, with ease<br />

of towing for Dot. It’s a bach on wheels<br />

being self-contained with cooking<br />

facilities, fridge and a toilet to avoid the<br />

dreaded late-night run through the rain,<br />

leaving the kids on their own. The queen<br />

and double bed easily accommodate the<br />

family, and in summer, they have tents for<br />

the kids.<br />

Before setting out, Dot checks the<br />

weather, and thoroughly inspects the<br />

caravan and does basic roadworthiness<br />

checks. She ensures there is water and gas<br />

bottles are full, all necessary cables are in<br />

the caravan, along with CRC, fly spray,<br />

insect repellent and sunscreen, and the<br />

all-important duct tape.<br />

Dot says, “I don’t do caravanning for<br />

me – I go caravanning for my kids, so<br />

they have a great childhood.” The Girls’<br />

Advanced<br />

Advanced<br />

Dot’s unique name, Girls’ Club<br />

Caravanning, helps her daughters<br />

to gain independence, resilience<br />

and problem-solving during their<br />

adventures.<br />

Club Caravanning holidaying ethos is<br />

about building independence, resilience<br />

and problem-solving. Dot comments,<br />

“The girls know how to do quite a bit on<br />

the caravan now; they have their jobs and<br />

feel empowered.” Dot hopes that when<br />

states that towing isn’t difficult,<br />

and with parking and reversing<br />

practice, you can get out of<br />

difficult situations with a calm<br />

attitude.<br />

This approach has helped during<br />

trips when things do go wrong.<br />

While on a recent trip, the caravan<br />

hatch flipped open and tore off.<br />

With rain and water coming in,<br />

Dot improvised using a large<br />

bag and duct tape on the inside.<br />

On another trip, with a loose<br />

connection and brake lights not<br />

working, Dot used a hair tie to<br />

hold the connector and bracket<br />

together, using some number<br />

eight wire-thinking. Teaching her<br />

daughters to think things through<br />

using logical thinking and<br />

common sense is part of the experience.<br />

Their caravan has enabled the family to<br />

build a lifetime of memories, with trips to<br />

many destinations by “getting the map out<br />

and following the weather”.<br />

Dot’s tips when travelling with<br />

one adult on the team:<br />

• regularly check weather and road<br />

conditions<br />

• contact campgrounds ahead of travelling<br />

MOTORCARE PROFESSIONALS<br />

Summer holidays<br />

safe driving tips<br />

Who doesn’t love a great summer road<br />

trip? With summer fast approaching, it’s<br />

time to prepare yourself and your vehicle to<br />

make sure things go smoothly and safely.<br />

Plan your journey<br />

Before setting off, plan your jo urney with<br />

intended rest stops and the route you will<br />

be taking. With many people heading out<br />

on holiday, allow extra time for more traffic<br />

and possible delays. Safety is essential, so<br />

ensure your vehicle is operating correctly.<br />

Check tyre tread and pressure, lights,<br />

brakes, air filter, oil, and top up your<br />

coolant. Ensure you have sufficient fuel/<br />

charge to make it to your first stop. Also,<br />

have a current warrant of fitness, car<br />

registration, and an appropriate driver’s<br />

licence. Finally, have a good night’s sleep<br />

before hitting the road.<br />

Keep distractions to a<br />

minimum<br />

Once you’re ready to go, ensure<br />

everyone in the vehicle is wearing<br />

a seatbelt correctly. Put your cell<br />

phone out of reach and focus on your<br />

driving and surroundings. Also, have<br />

sunglasses handy for road glare and to<br />

prevent eye fatigue. Secure loose items<br />

in your vehicle, as they can become<br />

missiles in an accident. Think of<br />

everyone’s safety and don’t drink and<br />

drive. Watch your speed and following<br />

distances as everyone wants to make<br />

it to their intended destination<br />

without mishap. “The journey is<br />

more important than the destination” is<br />

especially true on a road trip. Pull over and<br />

rest when you need to. Remain calm, be<br />

a courteous driver, be patient, and allow<br />

drivers to merge when needed.<br />

Check weather and road<br />

conditions<br />

Drive to the road conditions, weather,<br />

your vehicle and yourself. Wear<br />

comfortable clothing and appropriate<br />

footwear. When towing, prevent<br />

overloading and place heavy objects<br />

evenly over all of the axles. Check towing<br />

attachments and the safety chain, ensuring<br />

the couplings are connected, and trailer<br />

lights and brakes are working correctly.<br />

Remember, the speed limit with a trailer<br />

is 90 km, so use your rearview mirror and<br />

pull over to avoid holding up traffic.<br />

6 Tips to avoid “Are we there yet?”<br />

1. Travel scavenger - have a list of things to<br />

look for, take photos of or collect<br />

2. Oven tray magnet board with magnets to<br />

create pictures and designs.<br />

3. Car colour bingo- watch the colour of<br />

oncoming cars and record on a pre-made<br />

bingo sheet<br />

4. Activity kit with stickers, colouring<br />

pencils, paper, puzzle book, and cards<br />

5. An audiobook with headphones<br />

6. A tablet to watch movies or shows<br />

Big Mountain Naturally is a local and well-established<br />

company who offer pet food that is as close to nature as it is<br />

possible to get.<br />

They take a great deal of pride when manufacturing their<br />

products for your pets. “All care is taken to maintain ultimate<br />

freshness of all our products from harvesting to packaging.<br />

During this process the product is rapidly frozen to seal in the<br />

goodness of these great natural meats”.<br />

preservatives or chemicals in the manufacture of their products.<br />

The signature ‘Healthy Dog’ range has been perfected over<br />

many years by owner Bob Thomson, and is a complete balanced<br />

diet made from a proportioned selection of raw meats, organs,<br />

bone and cartilage. Another bonus is that there is no reason cats<br />

can’t eat it too.<br />

Laying pavers is easy<br />

PAVING PART of your garden will<br />

create an extra “room” for your<br />

barbecue, a couple of sun loungers,<br />

or a table and chairs.<br />

Work out where you want the<br />

paving stones. An area with a bit<br />

of slope is good for drainage, but<br />

make sure it does not slope towards<br />

the house.<br />

Measure the area, in square metres,<br />

so you can calculate how many<br />

pavers you will need. Allow five per<br />

cent more for those you will have to<br />

cut to fit odd spots.<br />

Dig the area and level it. Don’t<br />

recess it too much as the paving<br />

stones should be above the ground<br />

to stop water pooling. About 10<br />

or 12cm is the right depth for foot<br />

traffic.<br />

Build a thick base of gravel or<br />

stone chip by putting one thin layer<br />

over another compacting each time<br />

with a large rubber hammer.<br />

Put in edging restraints (buy<br />

concrete edging from hardware<br />

stores) to hold up a free edge of<br />

stones.<br />

Put down about 3cm of sand<br />

on the top of your base layer of<br />

gravel.<br />

Lay the paving stones in the sand<br />

and use the hammer to settle them.<br />

Wear earmuffs and safety glasses.<br />

Sweep sand over the paved area to<br />

fill in gaps.<br />

GARDENING 31<br />

Don’t battle the<br />

elements, plant in pots<br />

Wednesday <strong>November</strong> <strong>24</strong> <strong>2021</strong> <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong><br />

GARDENING IN pots is a<br />

spectacularly rewarding and low<br />

labour hobby.<br />

Instead of battling the elements,<br />

treating tired old soil, weeding<br />

and digging frantically, you<br />

simply tip the prepared perfect<br />

potting mix into the container,<br />

follow it up with the plants, water<br />

and wait.<br />

It’s hard to go wrong. You just<br />

move the pot around until you’ve<br />

found the perfect sunny or shady<br />

spot, without disturbing the root<br />

system, because a container garden<br />

is portable.<br />

You can move it about your<br />

home, patio or garden to fill bare<br />

spots at any time of year.<br />

And best of all, when you move<br />

house, you don’t have to leave<br />

your cherished garden behind –<br />

they all shift with the furniture.<br />

Furthermore, container gardens<br />

look great anywhere – as hanging<br />

baskets on terraces and pergolas,<br />

half round containers spilling<br />

colour down a wall or fence, or<br />

simply sitting on paved areas,<br />

decks and steps.<br />

For best effect, plan your<br />

planter by height as well as colour.<br />

You can mix annuals with a<br />

central perennial until the peren-<br />

MINIATURE: Gardens can<br />

be grown in containers and<br />

pots.<br />

nial gets well established, and in<br />

the meantime, enjoy a miniature<br />

garden rather than a miniature<br />

plant surrounded by bare earth.<br />

You can dispense with the annuals<br />

when the perennial takes<br />

over.<br />

Container gardeners can pretty<br />

much give up weeding altogether.<br />

But you don’t need to do a bit of<br />

soil maintenance from time to<br />

time, because the plants aren’t<br />

in a self renewing environment<br />

– they’re relying on you to give<br />

them nutrition and moisture.<br />

Brand new with reserve outlook<br />

Quality and attention to detail are hallmarks of this company’s<br />

builds and this home is no exception.<br />

The 190sqm floor plan is designed to offer generously<br />

proportioned rooms throughout with features you will love. The<br />

open plan living room has a designated dining area with tiling<br />

to define the space. The smart, white kitchen has a contrasting<br />

black granite bench top, a plumbed double fridge space, a<br />

90cm oven with gas hobs and a walk-in pantry. You will also<br />

appreciate the easy indoor/outdoor flow from the kitchen to<br />

the large Kwila deck, accessed through stacker sliders and here,<br />

you can enjoy an open aspect to the reserve that borders the<br />

section. Connect to the Bluetooth speakers and listen to your<br />

favourite music whilst you cook in style or sit out on the deck.<br />

A formal lounge provides that much sought-after second living<br />

space, allowing the family to spread out. The primary bedroom<br />

has a luxurious ensuite with a wall-to-wall tiled shower and<br />

Check building covenants<br />

before you purchase<br />

Developers have a vision for their<br />

subdivisions, which include the size, style<br />

and landscaping of individual homes.<br />

Such requirements will be written up in<br />

a separate building covenant document.<br />

As these address what might be built and<br />

how a property can be used, it is important<br />

to check these out before signing up for a<br />

piece of land.<br />

Covenants are conditions relating to<br />

land ownership and use. Given they are<br />

legally binding documents, you should<br />

familiarise yourself with what is required<br />

in terms of the home you will build and<br />

also future living. Your solicitor should<br />

also check this document.<br />

Building covenants usually require<br />

building work to be carried out in a safe<br />

and tidy manner, and in line with Council<br />

building consent standards. They will<br />

also stipulate that care is to be taken<br />

during building to ensure that public<br />

spaces, infrastructure and facilities near<br />

the site are not damaged. The impact of<br />

construction on others living in the estate<br />

will also likely be addressed.<br />

In relation to the home to be built,<br />

building covenants may address:<br />

• the design and size of the home,<br />

positioning on the section and whether<br />

more than one storey is permitted;<br />

• building height as well as roof pitch;<br />

• whether any outbuildings are permissible<br />

along with their siting;<br />

• landscaping where viewed from the<br />

street;<br />

• location and style of driveways and paths<br />

within street view; and<br />

• fencing – boundary and within the<br />

property (including distance from the<br />

front of the section).<br />

Your house design (including colours,<br />

roof style and cladding types) along with<br />

a landscaping plan, should be submitted<br />

to your developer for approval before<br />

building commences. It is a good idea to<br />

do this before submitting plans to Council,<br />

just in case changes may need to be made.<br />

Covenants extend beyond the building<br />

period, having validity after the ownership<br />

of and responsibility for the subdivision<br />

passes to the local Council. It is therefore<br />

worth considering whether your lifestyle<br />

will be impacted on, by the rules of the<br />

area you are looking to live in.<br />

While most covenants are reasonable<br />

and logical, some are more specific.<br />

Architecturally designed homes and only<br />

some exterior cladding types may be<br />

required. Often caravans, motorhomes<br />

or trucks are not to be parked in view of<br />

the street. There have also been cases in<br />

certain developments where no vehicles<br />

are to be parked on the street.<br />

To ensure covenants are adhered to<br />

during the building and landscaping<br />

process, developers request a bond.<br />

This may be around the $2,000 mark,<br />

something to be budgeted for. Once<br />

developer’s approval and sign-off is<br />

achieved, the money will be refunded,<br />

unless there is damage to the footpath,<br />

vehicle crossing, curbing or some other<br />

aspect of public land, which has not been<br />

remediated. In such a case, the bond<br />

may be forfeited to reimburse the cost of<br />

putting this right.<br />

Checking out building covenants before<br />

purchasing land will avoid any surprises<br />

further down the track.<br />

Fencing<br />

styles will be<br />

addressed<br />

within the<br />

covenants.<br />

Outdoor rooms<br />

Just because an outdoor space doesn’t have<br />

walls, that doesn’t change the basic principles<br />

applied to any design project inside your home.<br />

With a few simple fundamentals to guide<br />

you, you’ll soon see how easy it is to create<br />

a beautiful outdoor room you’ll love<br />

entertaining and relaxing in throughout<br />

the warm days and balmy nights of<br />

summer.<br />

Key considerations include style,<br />

function, lighting and mood. Remember<br />

that your outdoor room ought to be<br />

an extension of the look you’ve created<br />

within your home, which reflects your<br />

personality and lifestyle.<br />

Focal point<br />

Beginning, as with any room of the<br />

home, a space must always have a focal<br />

point to anchor the space. For some, this<br />

may be a bar or barbeque area, a large<br />

dining table, or a chill-out zone with<br />

couches or loungers.<br />

Outdoor fireplaces are becoming<br />

more and more popular as our living<br />

areas blend seamlessly between indoor<br />

and outdoor entertaining throughout<br />

the changing of the seasons. They can<br />

serve not only a practical purpose of<br />

somewhere to gather around to warm<br />

as the day turns to dusk and the nights<br />

get shorter, an outdoor fire can make<br />

a stunning feature or room divider for<br />

any outdoor living area. Water features,<br />

like a pond with beautiful koi fish, can<br />

also serve as a great outdoor focal point,<br />

creating tranquil environment in which<br />

to relax and unwind in, or create a<br />

meditative Japanese rock garden which<br />

your outdoor area can overlook.<br />

In the zone<br />

If you already have a large terrace or<br />

outdoor area, a blank canvas is a great<br />

place to start. If you have a particularly<br />

large outdoor area, dividing the space<br />

into zones makes for a more functional<br />

and aesthetically pleasing space. You can<br />

do this by using a number of different<br />

elements, such as contrasting flooring<br />

materials or by creating different levels<br />

of decking. However, if you’re after a<br />

seamless indoor/outdoor flow or wish to<br />

create the illusion of more space, use the<br />

same flooring materials indoors and out.<br />

Divisions can also be made with the<br />

clever positioning of furniture. Use<br />

modular seating to create walls and<br />

separate spaces. Plants are a cost effective<br />

and eco-friendly way to create divisions<br />

between zones, and are also an ideal way<br />

to camouflage ugly walls, create privacy<br />

and soften sharp angles. Living walls, an<br />

ever-increasingly popular vertical plant<br />

system, can be either freestanding to<br />

create different outdoor areas and can<br />

be on wheels to easily transform your<br />

outdoor space at a moment’s notice. Play<br />

with height and scale with various<br />

types of planters, whether you use<br />

hanging planters to draw the eye upwards,<br />

or oversized planter pots to add drama.<br />

Go with the flow<br />

Creating a great indoor/outdoor flow is<br />

easily created by opening up your kitchen<br />

with bifold doors or windows to create a<br />

servery or bar area for easy entertaining.<br />

If you are building your home from the<br />

ground up, you may want to design an<br />

outdoor room which lies at the epicentre<br />

of the building, with rooms opening onto<br />

the communal courtyard with bifold<br />

doors.<br />

Function over form<br />

Consider what you intend to use your<br />

outdoor space for. If you don’t plan on<br />

eating outside, there’s no need for a dining<br />

table, but buy some comfortable outdoor<br />

seating instead. If you only intend on<br />

sitting outdoors during the evening,<br />

then don’t waste money on awnings and<br />

umbrellas, and invest the money in an<br />

outdoor fireplace which you will actually<br />

use.<br />

Atmosphere<br />

Create unique and personalised outdoor<br />

decor with textiles and homewares from<br />

your travels or your favourite antique<br />

shop, or make your own shell garlands or<br />

wreaths from beach holidays. String up<br />

fairy lights or lanterns to create a festive<br />

mood in the evenings.<br />

SELLING YOUR HOME?<br />

Potential buyers are<br />

likely to be living in your<br />

neighbourhood, it’s an<br />

area that they already love<br />

and are actively seeking<br />

to stay in. That’s why it<br />

makes sense to advertise<br />

Your guide to all things Real Estate<br />

in the <strong>Selwyn</strong> District<br />

Building a home?<br />

Start with a wish list<br />

Building a home is one of the most<br />

exciting and rewarding projects but can<br />

also be stressful with thousands of decisions<br />

to make during the build process.<br />

Step one should be working out what the<br />

priorities are for everyone who is going<br />

to live in the new home and create a wish<br />

list. There are several ways to do this so<br />

everyone feels involved. Start with a list of<br />

every room, including outdoor areas, and<br />

then talk through what the priorities would<br />

be in that area.<br />

If you both want an island or a peninsula<br />

in the kitchen also think about the function<br />

- to add extra work space, provide storage<br />

or a breakfast bar? This will influence the<br />

size and shape and whether you need to<br />

add electrical outlets.<br />

Within your wish lists there will be<br />

items that are not necessarily room-based<br />

but part of the whole home, for example,<br />

storage, heating, electrical outlets or<br />

lighting.<br />

Is there a way for storage to take up less<br />

space and make it more accessible? Options<br />

include a walk-in linen closet, walk in<br />

wardrobes, a full height broom cupboard in<br />

the laundry, window seats, built-in shelving<br />

or entertainment area, pull-out pantry, shoe<br />

racks, drawers or shelves in the bedroom<br />

wardrobes.<br />

The type of heating can depend on the<br />

direction that your new house will face<br />

in terms of how much<br />

sun it gets. Are heated floors a priority, or<br />

ducted heating rather than a fire or heat<br />

pumps?<br />

The number and location of the electrical<br />

outlets is also something to think about<br />

before your build. Gone are the days when<br />

one plug is each room was enough. While<br />

increasing the number of electrical outlets<br />

may seem like a small thing, but will add<br />

flexibility when you start placing your<br />

furniture around your home.<br />

Lighting is another essential thing to<br />

discuss before the build. A skylight at the<br />

front entrance can add both natural light<br />

and drama. A skylight in the bedroom<br />

means you can look up at the stars. All can<br />

add a huge impact to the way you live.<br />

Don’t forget the outdoor area. You might<br />

want space for a trampoline or play area<br />

or prefer an outdoor kitchen or dining<br />

area. Think about providing<br />

shelter from the sun or wind<br />

and what your priorities<br />

would be – a bar, pizza oven,<br />

fire, television, dining table or<br />

another seating area?<br />

Part of the fun and<br />
