Property access

sours relationship

By ROBYN BRISTOW

The Hurunui­based Rural Advocacy

Network (RAN) saysthe relationship

between the rural community and

Environment Canterbury (ECan), has

taken amajorstep backwards.

The group saysanumberof

landowners have been subjected to

forcedaccess by ECan staff underthe

threatofpoliceescortand body cameras.

‘‘These are respected farming families

who had not broken any rules.

‘‘Theyhad deniedaccess to ECan staff

because of major issueswith the way that

ECan operates,’’ says RAN.

The issues, outlinedinastatement

from RAN to the North Canterbury News

are:

EvidenceofECan staff gathering,

using and sharingprivate property

informationunrelatedtothe purpose of

their visit, withoutthe knowledge of the

landowners and often to the detriment of

the landowners.

ECan staff being instructed by senior

management to reportnon compliance

issuesregardless if it was relatedtothe

purpose of their visit or whether the staff

were trainedincompliance. This

directive was acontributing factor to

some ECan staff quitting their jobs.

Landowners feelingthey have been

unfairly treatedand persecuted over

complianceissues for manyyears.

ECan undertaking mappingand

regulatory zoningswithout consultation

or aproper planning process. ECan

recently lostHigh Court and Courtof

Appeal cases over their flawedriverbed

zonings and the wetland mappingwas

withdrawn in part because landowners

started denying access.

RAN says acouple of years ago it

collated ‘‘extensive evidence of

landowners subject to unfair and

inappropriate treatment by ECan’’.

In ameetingwith the seniormanager

of all field staffheadmittedthere was a

culture problem within ECan,the group

says.

‘‘Heset about fixing the problems in

ECanbut left the organisation shortly

after.’’

RAN claims ECanoperatesin‘‘a

climate of fear’’.

‘‘People in Canterbury are subject to a

smotheringamount of compliance, much

of it unworkable.

‘‘Consent and planning processes have

become so complex that the system is

collapsing.

‘‘Land use consents are on hold, farm

plan audits are on hold.

‘‘There is widespread loss of trust in

ECan.

‘‘However because of the climate of

fear created by ECan, very few peopleare

prepared to speak out,’’ the group saysin

the statement.

‘‘Over the past12months RAN has

supported many landowners that have

been subjecttoharrowing experiences

with ECan.

‘‘We are aware of some seriousmental

wellbeingissuesresulting fromECan's

actions and we are working alongside the

RuralSupport Trust.

‘‘RANurgedECan not to go ahead with

the forced access becauseofthe welfare

issues, howeverECan rejected our

request.

‘‘This places the field staff in adifficult

and untenable position.

‘‘RANurgesthat no nastycommentsbe

directed at ECan staff and thatpeople

should be respectful at all times.

‘‘Theproblems lies withthe senior

management of ECan who have

consistently failed to address serious

problems within their organisation.’’

RAN says all it is seeking is afair and

proper process, workable regulations,

respect, and empathy for the people.

RAN is collating evidence of where

unfair or inappropriate actions by ECan

are havingserious mental wellbeing

impacts on people.

ECan has toldthe North Canterbury News

that on occasion, staffmust exercise

their statutory authority when accessing

properties to fulfillits regulatory

responsibilities.

‘‘Overthe pastthree monthsthis has

occurred on asmallnumber of North

Canterbury farms,’’ says Nick Daniels,

ECan general manager of field

operations.

He saysoccasionally landownerswill

objecttostaff accessing property.

‘‘In all cases, we seek to work with

landowners to discuss their concerns and

the purpose for the visit.Staff always

carefullyconsider the needtoaccess

private propertywhichneedstobe

clearly justifiedunder the relevant

legislation.’’

Mr Danielssays since its creation in

1991, ECanhas regulatory

responsibilities under both the Resource

Management Act and Biosecurity Act.

‘‘BothActs provide mechanismsfor

staff to enterprivate property to fulfil

council responsibilities.’’

Mr Danielssays eachyear ECan staff

undertake thousands of propertyvisits to

meet its regulatory responsibilities.

‘‘In avery small number of cases

landowners have raised objections to

how thiswork is being carried out.’’

‘‘Ifmembers of the public have

concerns about how our staff are

exercisingthese responsibilities, we

welcome them to get in touch directly. In

someinstances,members of the public

are unaware of our responsibilities. In

other instances, we can make

improvements to how we carry out these

responsibilities.’’

Mr Daniels says ECan staff visit

properties for severalreasons –

sometimes at the request of landowners,

and othertimes to help keep people,

properties, and the environment safe.

‘‘Wehave alegal requirement to

monitor and report on things such as

consent compliance, biosecurity risks,

and respond to environmentalconcerns

fromthe community. We also undertake

thiswork to meetthe expectations of the

community,asset out in the plans we

develop with the community,’’ saysMr

Daniels.

‘‘Weaim to advise landownersofour

intention prior to visiting, to ensure

they’reaware of the reason for the visit.

‘‘This is donevia telephone, mail, or

email.’’

Mr Daniels says he is not aware of any

inappropriate or illegalsharing of

information.

‘‘Ifanyoneisconcerned about this,we

encouragethem to get in touch so we can

workthrough these concerns.’’

He says it is goodpractice for staff to

takerecords during apropertyvisit.

NORTH CANTERBURY

NEWS

‘‘This informationisstored internally

but can be requested by the public under

the Local GovernmentOfficial

Informationand Meetings Act.

‘‘If requests are made, thereare

guidelines we followtokeep people or

property details confidential if there’s

risk in sharingthese.

‘‘Theseguidelines are not set by us.’’

Mr Daniels says staffhave a

responsibility to raise concerns

regarding non­compliance activity with

their managers or otherappropriate

staff, regardless of if it is relatedtothe

purposeoftheir visit.

‘‘If there are concerns that illegal or

non­complying activity is occurring then

this may warrant further investigation.

‘‘On occasion, concernsmay be

referred to other leadagencieswho are

better equipped to deal with specific

issues.

‘‘Again, we encouragepeople to get in

touch with us if they have concerns about

site visits to theirproperty.’’

Mr Daniels saysthere is no regulatory

zoningscreated outside of proper

planning processes.

‘‘Regulatory zonesorareas can only be

createdunder the statutory planning

process. Any changes made by

EnvironmentCanterbury to areasor

zones which are subject to different

regulations, are made throughthe

appropriate regulatory process, which

includes publicconsultation.

Underpass option ruled out

By SHELLEY TOPP

An underpass has beenruled outunder

State Highway One at thebusy Pukeko

Junction at Leithfield.

AWaka Kotahi (NewZealandTransport

Agency) representative visiting Leithfield

School, James Caygilltold pupilsduring a

visit an underpass couldnot be installed

because of the cost and highwater table.

He saidthere werethree other options

to makethe intersection safer —buildan

overpass, leave the intersectionasitisbut

make crossing it safer, or find another way

to get to school—but WakaKotahi was not

able to help with any of theseoptions at

this time.

The agency’s Christchurch­based

director of regional relationships, James

Caygill, was visiting the school with

Hurunui District Mayor, Marie Black, and

Hurunui District Council road safety coordinator,

Dean Eades, last week, to meet

with pupilswho wantanunderpass at the

100kphsectionofStateHighwayOne so

pupilsliving at LeithfieldBeach can cross

the highwaysafelytogotoschool.

They said they feltunsafe because of the

‘‘busycarswhich would not stop,’’ and they

wantedtomake the intersection safer for

everyone in thecommunity. Their talk

ended when they asked the visitors if it

would take someone to die at the

intersection before it was madesafer.

Mrs Blacktold the children they had

come to listen, and theirmessages were

very powerful.

Mr Caygill acknowledged Pukeko

Junction was an extremelydangerous

section of the highway but said there were

more dangerousareas of the highway and,

with alimited budget, funds had to be

prioritised.

He saidthe Governmentwas proposing

to lower speed limits aroundschools in

new legislation, but their school did not

qualify becauseitwas too far away from

the highway.

Under the legislation the Government

plans to make it easierfor local

communities to set safe speed limits

around schools to help children get to and

fromschool safely, whichincludes making

streetsoutside schools safer by requiring

speed limitsaround urban schools to be

reducedto30kph, or to amaximumof

40kph where appropriate, and to a

maximum of 60 km/h around rural schools.

Mr Caygill advised the children to

continue their fighttomake the Pukeko

Junction intersection safer to cross.He

encouraged them to get the community

involved and lobbythe Minister of

Education ChrisHipkins to change the

rules around eligibility for school

transport assistance to allow abus service

at the school .

‘‘The realityisthe safest way for you to

get to school is by car or bus,’’ he said.

Mr Caygill asked what pupils thought

neededtohappen to make the intersection

safer and he was quickly reminded of their

earlier questionatthe beginningofthe

meeting.

‘‘A kid or someone needs to die. That is

what it will taketoactually get something

done,’’ one of the pupilssaid.

‘‘Thatisavery sad answer,’’ Mr Caygill

said. ‘‘Nobodywantsthat to happen.’’

Using the nearby Kowai Track as an

optionfor asafer journey to schoolwas

discussed, but wasamuch longer route for

to school fromLeithfieldBeach homes.

Mr Caygill agreed to investigate signage

for the PukekoJunction section of the

highway to alertmotorists about children

crossingatthe intersection.

After talking with Paul &Deb owners of Cactus Cars, Ifeel they’re

really passionate about helping people. Deb said it’s about “putting

people before dollars and really helping where you can” No

questions and No judgements

Paul told me, many vehicle owners appear to be unsure how to,

when to or what to maintain on their cars or what the costs should

be. Some saying there feeling more and more uncomfortable with

the raising costs of servicing and WOF repairs.

Paul said he seen many repair quotes recently, where the cost

appears to be just getting out of control and too expensive for many

people. Leaving some people with no choice but to drive unsafe &

un-warranted cars and it’s just Not right. Paul said he feels many

repairs just don’t need to cost asmall fortune.

Paul, Deb & the team at Cactus Cars understand vehicle

maintenance, have the latest equipment and diagnostic scanners

to service &fix pretty much anything and have the experience to

understand how to get the job done properly without having to

charge asmall fortune.

Paul said it doesn’t matter whether you’ve purchased acar from thereDealership or you’re adirectcustomer of their workshop or panel

The workshop has been open now for about two years

and my research identified the business has many very

complimentary reviews on Google, Facebook, Needacar,

Trade Me &Buyer Score, is insurance company approved

and has built asolid reputation for fixing some extremely

complex challenges other workshops struggle with &

getting many repair jobs completed for sometimes for half

the cost of other workshops.

If you feel your vehicle maintenance costs are getting too

high for you, then why not give Cactus Cars Workshop a

call as there not all about the money.

Academic year ends

without ceremony

As 2021drawstoaclose,italso brings

to the end the academic yearfor many

of our students.

The tradition for schoolsinour

district is to hostanend­of­year

celebration ceremony.

This year however, the guidelinesto

managepublic gatheringshas

curtailed the ability for schoolsto

celebrate in the traditionalmanner.

In the past it has been aprivilege to

attendthese functions to recognise the

educationalexcellence of the students.

Iwould like to extend to all school

leavers good wishes as you embark on

the next steps of your educational

journey. Stepping into anew

environment will bringamixture of

excitement and tension.

However both are appropriateasyou

followyour dreams and contribute to

your successful life journey.

Thank you to all educators. Iam

grateful for your dedication and

determination to ensure our young

minds are curiousand well equipped

for theirfutures.

Over the weekend Ihad the privilege

to attend the Waikari Hospital 100 year

celebration afternoon tea.

Dr CharlesLittle, whose statute

standsinfront of the hospital,fell

victimtothe 1918influenza epidemic

as he assisted and relieved those

sufferingfrom the influenza. There is a

certain irony that we are currently

facingaglobal pandemic and the

impactits having on our healthand

wellbeing.

that the countiesofCheviot, Amuri,

and Waiparaconsidered thatthey

were getting poor return for the

hospital ratesthey were paying.

‘‘A proposal that the three counties

shouldget severance from the North

Canterbury Hospital Board district

was taken up with considerable favour,

and sympathetically received by the

Minister of Hospitals”.

It went on to say that “the doorsof

the hospital wereopenedbyMrs Evans

on 2nd September 1920’’.

Interestingly Mr and Mrs Little were

obliged to reside at the Great Northern

Hotel untilfour residents of Waikari,

MessrsAnderson, Earl, Arresand

Holland undertook to see to the

building of adoctor’sresidence and

the Waipara County Council agreed to

take over, afterobtaining the

necessarypower to do so.

This was the beginningofcounty

councils providingadoctor’shouse in

country districts.

This is not too distant from what we

do today in supportofthe provision of

quality health services for our

communities. No doubt the hospital

holds storiesclose to the heartsof

many people, as it has brought many

new lives intothe world.

But with the reduction of the

birthing unit, it will alsohold special

Mr Doocey hopes highlighting

‘‘Principalsare telling me either they

As National’smental health and

‘‘Thisregion in particular has

He encourages all schoolprincipals

to apply for the Ministry of Education

ALLTECH NZ LTD ADVERTISING FEATURE

Areliable protein

Starting in December and finishing

around February every year, pasture

will inevitably increase in NDF% and

reduce it’s ME content, as well as drop

the crude protein percentage. Milk

production can decrease significantly

depending on the pasture

management, but even in the best

managed pastures, the willingness of

the grass to go reproductive cannot be

stopped.

These conditions are areal

challenge for the cows to be able to

maintain milk production. In ahigh

pay­out year like this one, avoiding

this drop over the summer period is a

no brainer. But how…?

Inside the rumen, bacteria have

specific requirements of ammonia

(between 10 ­15 mg/dl) that need to be

supplied constantly over a24­hour

period in order to digest the feed and

multiply.

By including Optisync in the cow’s

diet during this short period will help

increase the rumen bacteria numbers

which will lead to improved pasture

utilisation and animal performance.

Optisync is aunique “slow release”

rumen degradable protein source

designed to safely feed and meet the

requirements of the rumen bacteria.

As consequence, the rumen bacteria

will not only effectively digest the

grass, but will also increase the

bacteria population by 10­20 %,

supplying the cow with the protein

and energy that she needs to keep

producing milk, maintain pregnancy

and start adding body condition.

Data from anew meta­analysis for

ruminants based on the results of 17

studies carried out in six different

countries, showed that Optisync, a

non­protein nitrogen ingredient, can

replace vegetable protein sources and

enable dairy producers to

simultaneously improve animal

performance, reduce their carbon

Matt Cassineri

footprint and increase profitability.

Generally, 100 grams of Optisync

could replace 0.9 kilograms (or 900

grams) of soya (46% CP) or 1kilogram

of Canloa (35% CP).

The meta­analysis highlighted, how

with Optisync, there was aconsistent

improvement in feed efficiency (3%),

increased nitrogen use efficiency for

milk production by 4%, while

increasing profitability and reducing

the environmental impact.

The rumen bacteria do take time to

respond, an adaptation period of 5­7

days is recommended. It also depends

on the rest of the diet composition.

Generally, one would expect to see

improvements in fibre digestion after

10­12 days of using Optisync.

Barley grass ... The seed heads can cause problems for pets when the weather is hot and

the grass is dry.

PHOTO: FILE

Barleygrass is adanger

to pets in thesummer

Pets should be kept well away from long

dry grass in the summer months, says a

Culverden vet.

That is because barley grass seed,

which is abundant in long grass at this

time of year is dangerous for pets

because of the sharp bristle­like seeds

which can easily attach to pets’ fur and

if not removed quickly can burrow into

the skin.

‘‘The best way to prevent this from

happening is to keep pets away from

long grass,’’ says Alana Drury, of the

Culverden North Canterbury Vet Clinic.

Barley seeds are aproblem all year

round, but particularly at this time of

the year when the weather is hot and the

grass is dry with brittle, sharp seeds.

Alana recommends pet owners do

regular checks of their animals if they

have been playing in long grass to make

sure seeds haven’t attached to the fur.

Particular care should be taken to

check behind the animal’s head, around

the ears and eyes, between the toes, in

the groin area and armpits. Long­haired

dogs are particualry susceptible

because the seeds are more difficult to

see.

The seeds can be removed easily if

they are attached to the fur but removal

from other, more sensitive areas, will

require emergency veterinary

attention.

If the seeds are not removed

immediately they can create serious

problems by penetrating the skin and

causing an abcess to develop which will

also require emergency veterinary care.

Sometimes the seeds can lay dormant

under the skin for months before

causing aproblem. Seeds can become

buried under the skin and can even

track along under the skin to adifferent

part of the body, from the foot into the

chest area, for example, which is

particularly dangerous for the animal.

Alana said the Culverden Clinic has

had afew woolly farm dogs come into

the surgery in the last few weeks to get

barley grass seeds removed.

They have now been clipped to make

it easier to spot and remove the seeds

before they become aproblem.

‘‘Clipping their fur is agood way to

make checking for grass seed easier,’’

Alana said.

Please takecarethis festive season

The festive season is agreat time of year andisfun forthe family,petsincluded. During this time we introduce lots of items into our homes thatwe

don’t normally have.Some of these things canbepotentially harmfultoour pets.Below arejustsome of the dangers, although each toxicitycaseis

different-itgoeswithoutsaying; if your petdoes getinto mischief andconsumes anyofthese items, the first thing to do is contactyour vetfor advice.

Lilies are really toxic to cats,

they cause kidney failure.

Every part of the plant is

harmful to acat, including the

pollen which may be ingested

whilst grooming themselves.

Other festive plants that

are harmful to pets include

poinsettias, ivy & mistletoe.

Decorations: Tinsel is

dangerous if swallowed, it can

wrap around the tongue or

anchor itself in the stomach,

rendering it unable to pass

through the intestines.

Edible ornaments, candy

canes, chocolate coins also

are harmful to our pets.

Ingestion of grapes in any form,

ie currants, sultanas, raisins,

juice,can cause kidney failure.

If you suspect ingestion call your

vet straight away to give them

the best chance of recovery.

Treatment needs to begin before

toxins have been absorbed.

Some mushrooms can be

toxic or agastrointestinal

irritant, hallucinogenic, or

cause acute liver failure.

Garlic and onions can cause

stomach upset and anemia.

The cob of sweetcorn can

cause aserious intestinal

blockage.

Stone fruits, seeds, pips and

nuts can be achoking hazard

or cause agastrointestinal

obstruction. The stones, stems

and leaves can contain cyanide,

which carries atoxicity risk.

Nuts are high in fats which can

result in vomiting,diarrhoea, and

pancreatitis.

Pets can get alcohol from many

sources: rotten fruit, fermented

products and alcoholic desserts,

or spilled drinks. Adog’sliver

and kidneys are not meant to

process alcohol (ethanol). Even a

small amount can result in severe

consequences.

Christmas mince pies, cake

and pudding are dangerous

for three main reasons:

1. They are full of dried

grapes which are toxic!

2. They are full of fats which

can cause stomach upsets.

3. They may containalcohol!

Cooked bones become brittle,

they splinter easily and can get

stuck causing an obstruction, gut

irritation, constipation, diarrhoea

and intestinal perforation. Asmall

amout of fatty meat left on a

discarded bone cancause a

gastrointestinal upset.

Chocolate is toxic and can be

life-threatening for pets.Caffine in

chocolate alsocontributes to its

toxicity.The high fat content can

also lead to pancreatitis. Xylitol,

found in “sugar free” products

causes alife-threatening rapid

drop in blood sugar levels and

can cause liver damage.

approved afinal draft concept last month

for the proposedhub, which will be

located between Charters Streetand

Courtenay Drive.

‘‘We are excitedtobepart of a

community collaboration and to get a

dedicated base built for us,’’ SatisfyFood

Rescuemanager Stef van Meer says.

‘‘We are very luckytobe able to

connect with like­minded groups to

develop aspacethat worksfor us and for

the community.’’

Satisfy Food Rescue is one of three

groupsworking with the Waimakariri

District Council to developthe

community hub concept.

The other groups are the Kaiapoi

Croquet Cluband the KaiapoiMenz

Shed, but thereisplenty of room for more

groups, WaimakaririDistrict Council

community and recreation manager

Chris Brown says.

‘‘We are agrowing district and it’s

getting moredifficult for hobby groups to

buy land and set up abase.

‘‘Thisisawaycouncilcan help to

ensurethere’s opportunitiesfor social

wellbeing.’’

DeputyMayor NevilleAtkinsonsays

the community hub will be ‘‘a greatasset

for the community’’.

‘‘The croquet club has beeninalmost

dire circumstances since the

earthquakes and the menzshed needs a

permanent home, as they have been

shifted round afew times, and Satisfy just

keepsgrowing.’’

Mr Brown says the concept planwas

completedfollowing consultation on a

preliminary conceptplan earlier in the

year.

The new conceptplan is out for

consultation until December 13.

Community feedback will determine

whether more consultation is needed

before the council notifies the resource

consent next year.

Mr Brown says all goingwell,the

consent process couldbecompleted by

the middle of next year, allowingwork to

beginonconstructingthe site.

Acharitable trust will be establishto

run the site, own the buildingsand be

responsible for insurance and

maintenance and have an agreement

with the clubs to use the assets.

‘‘We have spoken to external funding

providersand theylike that model, as it

meansthe trust can show them the wider

communitybenefits,’’MrBrown says

Whilethe council willdevelop the site,

including landscapingand installing

walk ways and carparking, the trust and

the clubs will be responsible for securing

funding for buildings.

‘‘Thesite will stillbeanopen

communityspace, although obviously you

won’tbeable to walk on the croquet

greens,’’ Mr Brown says. ‘‘People will be

abletofreely walkaround the rest of the

siteasthey do now for walkingthe dog or

for general exercise.’’

Sitesecurity, lighting, the orientation

of the buildings, building materials and

aesthetics will all be considered as part

of the consent process.

SUMMER GARDENING

12 North Canterbury News, December 2, 2021

December is great for gardeners

By HENRI HAM,

Awapuni Nurseries

December is the perfect month to spend

more timeinthe garden.

The pleasure of learningnew plant

varieties, and discoveriesongardening

approachesisshared among many avid

gardeners.

Ihope these quicktips help you have a

successfulvegetable or flower garden.

Tidy Up

Starttrimming your hedges, small trees,

shrubs and lawn hedges. Deadhead your

flowers and mulch aroundyour plants.

Popular Edibles

It is agreattime to plantfavourites like

cucumbers, tomatoes,chillies,

watermelons, rock melons, sweet cornand

passionfruit.

Stakeyour tomatoes within amonth

afterplantingthem or before they reach a

height of about 250to300mm.

Tomatoesare easy to grow but their

growing stems are quitesoft and sensitive

to damage.Plus,they yield heavycropsso

it’s good to give them early support.

Blossom End Rot Prevention

Acommonmisconceptionisblossom

end rot is afungal plant disease.

One of the causesofblossomend rot is

calcium deficiency and this can happen in

tomatoes, eggplants, melons forexample.

Calcium is avital nutrient in vegetable

plants because it strengthens the cellular

structure in the fruit.

Asidefromnutrient­deficiency, another

possible cause of blossom end rot is over

fertilisation(nitrogen). Too much nitrogen

can meanthe plantdoesn’t absorb its

required levels of calcium.

Inconsistency of watering is another

possible issue. In order to give your plants

the best chances against blossom end rot,

give your plant calcium­richfertilisers.

Keep your plants well­watered.Add mulch

to keep the soilmoist.

Popular edibles ... Time to get planting.

Garlic Lovers

Summer is the best timetoharvestgarlic

—from the end of December to early

January.

When the lower, outer leaves turn

yellow or brown, it’stimetoharvestthe

garlic.Loosen the soil around the plant

and carefully pullthem out.

Timing is quite important. When you

harvestthe garlictoo early,it’s likely it

won’t store well. Once harvested, youcan

eat the garlic right away,although some

people leave them on the ground for afew

days to dry it up.

If you intendtostore it forafew days, tie

the bundles togetherand keep themina

cool, dark, dry place with good air

circulation.

BasilSeason

Salads and desserts are ahighlight of

this season and addingbasilisagreat way

to add flavour to your meals. Awapuni

nurseries stock eight varieties of basil:

lemon, bush,Thai, sweet, red Rubin,

cinnamon,greek mini and mixed. We

particularly recommendthe basil lemon

for aburst of unique, citrusy flavour. It

smells amazing, too.

Blooming

Everywhere in New Zealand, flower

gardens are blooming. Fill up your

gardens withfoxgloves, lavender,

impatiens and poppies. If you wish to try

something different, take alookatsome

lupins or salvia. They'll add abit of colour

and heighttoyour garden.

Discussing waste minimisation

By ROBYN BRISTOW

Sending less wastetolandfill will

take acommunity effort, says

Hurunui District Councilwaste

officer NicoleHurinui.

Nicole is keen to connectwith the

district’slocal business as astep

towards achievingthis.

‘‘We are keen to hear new ideas

from businesses about whatthey’re

doingtokeep contaminationand

wastevolumesdown.

‘‘It’s about starting a

conversation. As acouncil we can

provide advice, tips, and assist with

wastereduction where needed,’’

she says.

When it comes to waste, Cheviot

Four Squareowners,Steve and

Ginny Allison, are atoughact to

follow.

Theteam recycles its dry

cardboard, and food scrapsare

collected by alocal accredited pig

farmer. Their recycling is placed in

banana boxes or clean cardboard

cartons and takendirectlytothe

transfer stationinCheviot.

‘‘Steveand Iwant to make sure

we are doing the best jobwecan for

thecommunity and the

environment,’’says Ginny.

They firmly believe if you aren’t

progressingasabusiness, you

become stagnant andfall behind.

Reducing wasteisnoexception.

‘‘Ithink it is great what Nicole is

doing. As businesses, we can always

be improvinginthis area.With

Nicole actingasago­between, we

cantake on her feedbackand learn

from each other.’’

The council’s transfer stations

offervarious options for recycling,

and the staff have great

relationships with locals who are

looking to maximise waste

reduction.

Nicole is keen to continue these

chatswith other local businesses.

‘‘It’s areally positive way to

engage with the business

community, and createaflow­on

effect to supporters and consumers

aboutthe importance of waste

reduction,’’Nicolesays.

Wakatu Quay parking discussed

By DAVID HILL

Parking and access at the Wakatu

Quay development and Easter

trading werediscussed at the

KaikouraDistrict Council’smeeting

last week.

Aconcept plan for parking and

access at Wakatu Quay was

approved in principle by

councillors, ‘‘knowing that

everything might change’’,chief

executive Will Doughty says.

‘‘Theproject needs some

certaintyinterms of apreferred

option to move to any consenting

stage.’’

The approval gives theKaikoura

Marine Development Project some

certaintytomove forward.

The concept plan lays out parking

and accessoptions in two stages,to

be implemented as the project

develops.

In stage one the council will

createaone­way traffic system

using the existing roads and

parking.

Forstage two the councilhas

entered intodiscussions with a

neighbouring landowneraround

thepossibility of creating an

alternative accessroute.

Thecouncil’s preferred concept

plan, adopted earlierthis year, is

estimated to cost around$20

million.

Thecouncil received nearly $10

million funding fromthe

government’sProvincial Growth

Fund, leaving it around $10 million

short.

Expressions of interest closed on

Friday,with the council keen to

hear from potential individual

tenancies or from adeveloper

interested in investing in the whole

development.

‘‘It reallydepends on the level of

interest, whether it’s astaged

development or whether everything

can be built at once,’’MrDoughty

says.

‘‘What we have signalled earlyon,

this is not going to be aburden on

the ratepayers of Kaikoura. But as a

council we can always revisit that.’’

Councillors also agreed for the

Easter Sunday ShopTradingPolicy

to go out for public consultation as

part of the council’s five­yearly

review.

The policywas first adopted in

2017,following the passing of the

Shop Trading Hours Amendment

Act 2016, allowing Kaikoura

retailerstotrade on Easter Sunday.

The publichas until January 10 to

offerfeedback.

Designer Canvas for all your outdoor fabrics

Designer Canvas has been operating for

more than 30 years designing,

manufacturing, repairing and installing

outdoor fabric products for satisfied

North Canterbury clients.

do anything and everything out of many

types of fabrics’’.

‘‘Basically we’ll do whatever our

customers want, it’s up to their

‘weird stuff’ over the years,’’ he says.

Peter specialises in the design,

manufacture and installation of shade

sails, but also makes caravan awnings,

boat covers, transport covers and many

other canvas and PVC products.

‘‘I enjoy designing and making shade

sails because of their versatility and

effectiveness, providing much needed

usable outdoor living space, especially

during those hot summer months.

‘‘Many customers comment that, ‘It’s

like adding another room to the house

but still getting to enjoy the outdoors’.

‘‘Much better than chasing the

umbrella down the street when those

nor’westers roar through.’’

Many are being used as carports or

even boat storage out of the sun.

Over the years Peter says he has

probably made more than 1000 sails,

many still going strong after 15­plus

eclairs, quiche, croissants and baguette

rolls, to name afew —have been much

sought after, along withSebastien’s

AMBERLEY WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT DESLUDGING

IS NOW COMPLETE

An estimated 620 tonnes of dry sludge has been removed from the wastewater ponds through adesludging

process, an accumulation of 10-12 years ofwastewater into the ponds from Amberley Beach, Amberley,

Leithfield Beach and Leithfield Village. Lagoon dredging is by far the most common form of lagoon (pond)

sludge removal, where the dredger floats onthe lagoon and sucks upthe organic and non-organic material

(the sludge) from the base of the lagoon where it has settled. The sludge isthen pumped into five ‘Geo-

Bags’ where apolymer is added to assist in the drying process. Once the sludge has dried out, it's ready for

re-use which can be added to alandfill, applied to agricultural cropland as fertiliser, orbagged with other

materials and marketed as “biosolid compost” for use in agriculture and landscaping. The drying out process

takes about two to three years, during which time the wastewater weeps from these bags, is collected, and

pumped back through the ponds for irrigation use in the future.

THE ROAD RESEALING SEASON

Summer means the start ofresealing season. At locations around the District the roading maintenance

contractor will be putting down anew layer of chipseal. Before this resealing takes place, they will be fixing

existing faults along the road surface and edges, including drain and shoulder clearing to help prolong the

life ofthe road, will be happening.

We would ask that you take it slow….. While the chipseal is fresh and there may be some surplus chip on

the road, please follow any temporary speed limits, which will help protect the seal, other road users, and

yourself.

TOOT FOR TUCKER

On Tuesday 7December community volunteers including the Amberley Volunteer Fire Brigade, the

Amberley and Glenmark Lions, and staff members from HDC will betooting for your tucker. The team will

be cruising the streets of Amberley, Amberley Beach, Leithfield and Leithfield Beach between 6pm and

7pm. Feel free to donate some of your cans or non-perishables, all of which will be given to our Foodbanks.

You can also drop your cans intothe Toot for Tucker box at the Amberley Library.

Local hero ... Richard Craig’s long service to the Kaikoura community has been

recognised.

Kaikoura local hero named

By DAVID HILL

Along serving Kaikoura volunteer has been

namedaKiwibank Local Hero.

Richard Craig has been volunteering for

Coastguard Kaikoura for34years, is a

KaikouraMarineGuardian andhas also

been activeinthe Kaikoura Salmon

EnhancementSociety and Te KorowaiTe

Tai oMarokura.

He was also recently named Coastguard

volunteer of the yearand Coastguard

rescue vesselvolunteer of the year at the

2021 CoastguardAwards of Excellence.

‘‘I’mnot one for awards,’’MrCraig says.

‘‘Everything I’m in, I’m partofateam and

I’ve beenluckyenough to have some

leading roles.

‘‘Butit’s nice to be recognised.’’

Mr Craig was Coastguard Kaikoura

presidentfor 16 years andremains the

organisation’s health and safetyofficer.

He played an integral role in raising

$700,000in2006 to buy anew rescue vessel,

whichheskippers.

‘‘We carry­out rescues around Kaikoura

and sometimesdown to Motunau and up to

Cape Campbell.

‘‘It’s prettyruggedcoastline,but we have

averygood rescueboat.

‘‘We don’t get alot of callouts, but they

can be very serious.

‘‘We are very happy to provide aservice

PHOTO: SUPPLIED

for people whoget intodifficulties.’’

Mr Craig ran acarpet and vinyl floor

laying business in Kaikoura before retiring

four years ago.

He admitsithas been achallenging few

yearsfor Coastguard Kaikoura.

‘‘Covid has been strange times for

everybodyand before that it was the

earthquakes, so it has been prettybusy.’’

The rescuecrews were involved in

evacuating tourists from Kaikoura

following the November 2016 earthquake.

The Coastguard building was

refurbished, while dredging was required

to launchthe rescue boardafterthe

coastline was raisedbythe earthquake.

‘‘Fortunatelywedidn’t have too many

boatsaroundatthe time,’’ Mr Craig says.

But the worknever ends, as fundraising

will begin soon to replacethe rescue boat,

whichwill turn 20­years in 2026.

His knowledgeofthe marine

environmentand the fisheries in the area

saw him appointedasaMarineGuardian

when the Hikurangi Marine Reservewas

created by government legislation in 2014.

Te Korowai Te Tai oMarokura was

established nearly 20 years ago to advise

the Ministries of Fisheries and

Conservation andtohelp ensurethe

fisheries and marine mammalsare

preservedfor future generations,MrCraig

says.

Paua fisheries reopened

Paua fishing along the Kaikoura coastline

has reopenedfor the first time in five years.

The November2016 earthquake caused

extensive changes to the marine habitat

alongthe Kaikoura coastline between

Marfells Beach /Cape Campbell and

Conway River, including significant coastal

uplift.

The loss of awide range of marine

species led to the area being closed to

commercialand recreational fishing of

most shellfish and seaweed, including paua

andkina,for five years.

The Kaikoura MarineGuardianshave

been monitoring the fisheriesclosely and

madeasubmission to the Minister for

Oceans and Fisheries in February to

reopen the Kaikoura marinearea.

As aprecautionthe fishery will reopen

for athree month to February 28.

Asurveyhas been conducted prior to the

fishery reopening on December 1, while a

follow­up survey will be carried out at the

end of the three­month period to assess the

effects of fishing.

An independentsurvey of recreational

fishingalong the coastline will also collect

information on catch levels and fishing

locations.

Commercial and recreational fishing

along the Kaikoura coastline is allowed for

common or black foot paua fishing until

February 28.

The less common and smaller yellow foot

paua remainsoff limits.

There is adaily limit of five paua per

person,upto amaximum of 10 paua for

recreational fishingwith aminimum legalsize

limit of 125mm shellfish length.

Commercial fishing for paua will open

for the same three­month period and will

be managedwith anew totalallowable

commercial catch of 23 tonnes,around 50

percentofthe pre­earthquake catch level.

Commercial and recreational kina

fishing is also open with alimit of 20 kina

per day.

The Oaro­Haumuri Taiapureisalso open

to paua and kina fishing,but four other

customary management areas along the

Kaikoura coast remain closedto

commercial and recreational paua fishing.

reopening visit www.mpi.govt.nz.

Friday to recognise the YouthVoice Canterbury Awards.

Youth service recognised

The Waimakariri District has recognised

two youth leaders with aspecial lunch on

Friday.

With the annual YouthVoice

Canterbury awards evening cancelled

due to Covid­19, Mayor Dan Gordon and

chief executive Jim Harland shouted

lunch for Waimakariri’s two award

winners, Ruby Wilson and Chloe Betony.

‘‘We are incredibly proud of these

outstanding young people and their drive

and commitment to play apart in

creating apositive tomorrow for our

district and region,’’ Mr Gordon says.

‘‘It’s apleasure to work with Ruby and

Chloe on the Youth Council.’’

Ruby, who is the Waimakariri Youth

Council deputy chairperson, won the

Matt Doocey MP supreme award for

Waimakariri and was runner­up for the

‘change­maker award’.

‘‘Ruby has done an incredible amount

in our community, not only in her Youth

Council and WaiYouth roles, but also

volunteering through her church, school

and wider community including regional

youth networks,’’ Mr Gordon says.

Fellow youth councillor, Chloe was

runner­up for the environmental action

award.

‘‘Chloe has been instrumental in

developing our youth­led environmental

projects,’’ Mr Gordon says.

‘‘This includes local river clean ups

and the Biota Node project, in

partnership with Te Kohaka oTuhaitara

Trust.’’

The annual youth awards is an

opportunity to champion youth and

celebrate the work young people do in

the Canterbury region.

Youth Voice Canterbury announced

this year’s youth awards via its Facebook

page last week.

Young driver safety priority

Taking adefensive driving

course changed rural

teenager Hillary Cooper’s

confidence to test her

skills on the open road.

The Oxford Area School

Year 11 student now wants

to use her role as

Waimakariri’s brand new

Youth MP to help other

young people in

Waimakariri learn to drive

safely on the electorate’s

open roads.

Waimakariri MP Matt

Doocey says he received a

high calibre of

applications from young

people wanting to be his

next Youth MP.

‘‘It was great to have the

input of my previous

Youth MP, Ellie Tizzard,

and Waimakariri District

Council Youth and

Development Facilitator

Emily Belton, as two of the

judges on the selection

panel to make the very

hard choice of who would

represent Waimakariri’s

young people at Youth

Parliament.’’

Youth Parliament will

be held on July 19 and 20,

2022.

Hillary fronted the

interview panel armed

with an exciting project

she was ready to drive

from the get­go.

She wanted to remove

barriers for youth in

Waimakariri to accessing

driver training and

learning to drive safely on

our open roads, Mr Doocey

says.

Driving success ... Hillary Cooper will be working as

Waimakariri MP Matt Doocey's new Youth MP to raise

awareness of the importance of making driver training and

defensive driving courses more accessible to young people.

Living in arural

community, Hillary knows

how difficult it can be for

our young people to access

driver training, especially

defensive driving skills.

‘‘She convinced me how

important it is for

community safety that our

young drivers have the

skills they need to drive

defensively and safely,’’Mr

Doocey says.

Hillary says young

people in Waimakariri

struggle to get where they

need to be with parents

working and driver licence

fees and accessibility to

lessons often out of reach.

‘‘Growing up on adairy

farm, Iknow those barriers

are very real and Iwant to

programmes implemented

in our schools.

‘‘This is an issue Iwant

to take to Wellington to

raise in Youth Parliament.

Defensive driving courses

are offered at acost that is

prohibitive to young

people, yet they have been

proved to increase

community safety. Having

more courses and mentors

will save lives.’’

Hillary will be reaching

out to young people across

Waimakariri to get their

feedback ahead of Youth

Parliament next year.

Canterbury, we need

to talk about our

changing climate.

Climate change is alreadyaffecting our

localcommunitiesand ecosystems.Itis

not an easy or small topic. That’s whyour

localand regional councilshavepooled

resources,knowledge and expertise to

helppeopleunderstand, preparefor and

adapt to changesthatCanterburyislikely

to experience.

The It’s time, Canterburywebsite is home

to reputableinformationand resources.

Explore these pages to learn aboutwhat

changesare expectedhereinCanterbury,

and pickupsomeideasabout howyou

canhelp minimise,and adapt to,the

impacts of climatechange.

Whatisclimate change?

Over many years,scientists and tohunga

have learntalot aboutEarth’s climate

system. We know that recent changes

in the climate arewidespread,rapid,

and intensifying,and unprecedented

in thousandsofyears.

As Earth’s temperature

continuestorise,itcauses

changesinrainfall, weather

patterns, and the frequency

of extreme events, as well

as ice meltand sea level

rise.This results in arange

of effects we experience in

our naturalenvironment

and the areas we livein.

Climate changeinCanterbury

If we carry onasusual, and greenhouse

gas emissions continue to increase,

average temperatures in Canterbury are

projectedtoincrease by up to 3.5°C by

the end of the century. The likelihood

of drought conditions is also projected

to increase, and firerisk will increase as

soilsand plants become drier.

Alongside drought, we can expect

wetter winters in many eastern, western

and southern parts of Canterbury,

with up to 40% more rain.

What’sbeingdone?

The morewelearn about the challenges

associatedwith climate change in

Canterbury, the morewecan use our

knowledge to makewise decisions.

Councils arethinking differently about

biodiversity,water availability,flood

protection, coastal erosion, energy,

land, urban design, infrastructure

and industry soyou, your whānau, your

community or your business can be

supportedtobetter understand and

proactively respond. Mō tātou, ā, mō

kā uri, āmuri akenei –for us,and our

children after us.

If we work together to reduce emissions,

we can collectively limit the amount of

warming in Canterbury/Waitaha.

Can Ireally makeadifference?

Absolutely! The easiest thing youcan

do is be informedand become part of

the conversation. Makesureyou have

verifiable facts to base your discussions

and actions on and talk with others

about what youknow.

On the It’s time, Canterbury website,

youcan show and shareyour support

simply byputting your name to the

cause, as well as learn about projected

changes in your district.

Our priority is safety and

customer satisfaction

Province Wide Helicopters (PWH) was

formed in 2009 by commercial helicopter

pilot Flint Horn and his wife Jenny,

Flint who has accumulated 12,500 flight

hours over a 33 year flying career, wanted

to give back to the industry he loves.

Throughout Flint’s career his number

one priority has been Safety and

Customer Satisfaction.

PWH initially provided the flight training

to young pilots wanting to master the

techniques of helicopter flying.

This was mostly done from autumn

through to early summer.

During the summer months Flint flew

helicopters as acontract pilot fire fighting

for the New South Wales fire service in

Australia.

Australia is only one of the off shore

country’s that he has flown in.

For anumber of years he flew in British

Columbia Canada working for logging

companies.

He also flew in the north west territories

of Canada under taking live capture of

wildlife for research. However, one of

Flint’s greatest challenges was moving to

Norman Wells, asmall settlement of 300

people on the arctic circle.

He was flying for Great Slave

Helicopters where he held the position of

Base Manager.

He was sole charge and day light

hours were a mere three hours, and

temperatures plummeted to -40 degrees

Celsius in the winter.

Conditions were extreme which posed

many challenges for both man and

machine while serving the company’s allyear

round clients.

During the summer months there

was 24-hour daily light and Flint’s role

expanded to managing 13 helicopters

and associated crew, serving oil and

mining companys, fire fighting for the

forest service, wildlife management,

water surveying and servicing the small

communities in the arctic.

During Flint’s career he has been

involved in working for medivac and

search rescue operators both in

New Zealand and overseas, which

included flying the Westpac and Nelson

Marlborough Rescue Helicopters.

He also carried out powerline surveying

and construction in Australia and

Canada.

Flint’s philosophy is simple: Do things in

a timely and professional manner.

This is evident in how Flint and Jenny

operate PWH.

Students are trained to well above

industry standards. From day one

a student pilot is exposed to the

environment that a commercial helicopter

pilot flies in.

Being located at Springbank, near

Rangiora, Flint has access to agreat

training environment with local farming

property to train on, once airborne, and

surrounding mountains within minutes of

the helicopter base, saving the student

valuable time and money on ferrying

costs while training.

PWH operate two Robinson R22

helicopters and one Robinson R44, and

offers training from novice through to full

commercial pilot licencing.

Exam tutoring is given on request as

well as finance available for students

who require it.

Due to the extensive experience that

Flint has obtained flying many types of

helicopters, PWH offers students ratings

on the most common types of helicopters

available.

PWH specialises in advanced mountain

flying courses and longline training

therefore giving the student pilot the most

compressive real life training available.

Flint believes that training pilots in the

environment that they will eventually fly

in has helped many of the pilots he has

trained achieve jobs in both Canada and

Australia.

Flint is proud that anumber of off shore

helicopter operators ring him for junior

pilots that he has trained when positions

become available.

PWH now offers farmers and local

government an aerial pest control service.

With apurpose built helicopter

transporter PWH can position their

helicopters at minimal cost weather

delays.

Coupled with three experienced,

professional shooters, athermal imager

and map tracking equipment, PWH

can deliver high pest control yields

at competitive rates. Trail flights and

Vouchers are also available.

control or other helicopter services

Fellow Amberley farmers Jenny and

Wayne Chisnall sold both of their

Southdown rams for $3000 and $1000

respectively.

The Laings run the small 100 ewe,

Glasnevin Dorset Down stud, on a210

hectare dairy support property with their

son and daughter­in­law, Michael and

Felicity Laing, and their grandchildren.

Mrs Laing was proud of her top­priced

ram.

‘‘He has abeautiful presence, a

While they are cutting back on the

Dorset Downs, Mrs Laing is confident the

family will be farming for years to come.

‘‘Our 5­year­old grandson George is

already keen on animals and he’s had a

couple of pet lambs.

‘‘He called his little pet lamb John

Deere. It’s agood, wee pet and it follows

him all over the place.’’

The Chisnalls run the 120 ewe, Hursley

Downs Southdown stud on an 80ha farm,

alongside some beef cattle and a

commercial flock of Romney ewes.

The stud was established in 2007 for

Mrs Chisnall, who tutors teachers for

professional development.

‘‘Wayne’s mum had asheep stud and

she told him, ‘Jenny needs astud’.

‘‘We work together ­he’s the brawn and

I’m the passion,’’ Mrs Chisnall says.

She was thrilled with the result, given

other farmers struggled to make sales.

‘‘We’re very happy with that,

considering the sale. There was not alot

of commercial buyers to under pin the

sale.’’

The day’s top price was $16,500 paid for

aSuffolk ram from Collie Hills stud from

Kurow in North Otago.

Another Suffolk ram, vendored by

Anton Gibson of Middlemarch sold for

$9000, while $6000 was paid for aDorset

Down ram bred by John Dodds of

Oamaru.

emigrated to New Zealand

from England in 2008they

paid £20,000tobring

Rawaah withthem.

It was ahuge cost thenfor

the young couple, who had

ownedanequestrianand

horsetrekking centre in

West Sussex before coming

to New Zealand. But

Rawaah was ‘‘an incredibly

special horse’’ and leaving

him behind was

unthinkable.

Amanda bought Rawaah

for $1000 after the former

high­pricedyearling had

failed to excel on the

racetrackinthe United

Kingdom.

‘‘When Ifirst got Rawaah

he was verymuch an

institutionalised racehorse.

He was stabled 24 hoursa­day

exceptfor time out

training on the gallops when

they go out with astring of

100 other horses.

‘‘He had never jumped,

done dressage, he had never

run around apaddock, seen

sheep for example and he

had never beenfloated,’’

Amandasaid. ‘‘He just

didn’thave the desire to

race, unlike his sire

Nashwan who won the

Derby.’’

But after two yearsin

Amanda's care Rawaah

gainedanew leaseonlife

and was competing in

dressage, showjumping and

leading outtreks with her.

He also helped Amanda run

therapy sessions for MIND,

amental health charity in

the UnitedKingdom.

‘‘I had to acquire alot of

newskills to retrain

Rawaah,’’Amanda said. ‘‘I

studiednatural

horsemanship with Kelly

Marks, who workedwith

horse whispererand bestselling

authorofThe Man

WhoListensToHorses,

Monty Roberts.

‘‘Ilearnt so much from

workingwith Ra. He has

been an amazingteacher,’’

she said. ‘‘I feel very

fortunate to have had such a

special horse in my life.’’

Celebrating Our Youth

Mayor Dan Gordon and Council Chief Executive

Jim Harland were delighted to host aspecial lunch

for two of our local Youth Councillors last Friday,

to celebrate their recognition at the recent Youth

Voice Canterbury Awards.

Mayor Dan Gordon says, “We are incredibly proud

of these outstanding young people and their drive

and commitment to playing apart in creating a

positive tomorrow for our District and region. It’s

apleasure to work with Ruby and Chloe on the

Youth Council.”

Waimakariri Youth Council Deputy Chair, Ruby

Wilson, won the supreme award for Waimakariri

as well as being runner up for the ‘Change-maker

Award’. Ruby has done an incredible amount in

our community, not only in her Youth Council and

WaiYouth roles, but also volunteering through her

church, high school and wider community including

regional youth networks.

Youth Councillor, Chloe Betony, was runner up

for the Environmental Action Award. Chloe has

been instrumental indeveloping our youthled

environmental projects. This includes local

river clean ups and the Biota Node project, in

partnership with Te Kōhaka oTūhaitara Trust.

Youth Awards is our opportunity to champion

youth, and celebrate all the awesome work young

people are doing in the Canterbury region. Youth

Voice Canterbury wants to recognise the awesome

things young people contribute to in their

communities and the positive impact they have on

other young people through these awards.
