THE NEXT time travelling to rugby

training seems like a grind, consider the

lengths Hugh Nichols goes to for the

Selwyn Schools 1st XV.

An abrasive loose forward, Nichols

exemplifies the commitment required to

play for a composite team drawn from

Akaroa to Rolleston, Lincoln to Darfield.

Ellesmere too, for good measure.

Nichols, who is preparing for his second

and final season in the Miles Toyota

Championship is Akaroa Area School’s

only representative, so it’s a solitary

start date

• By Kristie Boland

WORK WILL start on the

rebuild of the Governors Bay

Jetty in August.

The Governors Bay Jetty Restoration

Trust has announced

it signed a contract with HEB

Construction for the much anticipated

rebuild of the jetty.

The trust had already signed a

letter of intent with HEB earlier

this year to allow them to order

some stainless steel fittings and

fixings for the jetty.

“Seventy per cent of this project

cost is upfront, due to the nature

of it but that’s allowed us to also

have a lot cheaper costs then the

council would have been able to

get if they were running it,” said

trust chairwoman Prue Miller.

The city council previously said

it was going to cost $7.8 million to

rebuild, but the trust can rebuild

the jetty for under half that cost.

With timber ordered and a fixedprice

contract signed, the total

project cost is $3.5 million, plus

10 per cent contingency.

WE HAVE a snapshot on the

front page today on one of the

big stepping stones in rugby.

The Miles Toyota Championship

starts in early May

and no doubt the district will

be getting behind the Selwyn

Schools 1st XV that has been

working hard at pre-season


The schools’ championship

is a key springboard in a player’s

career. It is not the be all

and end all; some players don’t

hit their straps until they are

older. But the championship

generally turns out the stars of

the future.

Selwyn also draws players

from Banks Peninsula. Loose


forward Hugh Nichols goes

to Akaroa Area School and

has a 122km round trip from

Duvauchelle to Lincoln High

School twice a week for training.

Hopefully, the dedication

will pay off.

Public consultation starts on

PARTS OF Christchurch and

Banks Peninsula vulnerable to

the impacts of climate change

and sea level rise would have

future development managed

according to their level of risk.

The city council has started

consulting the public on its draft

coastal hazards plan change,

which outlines how it will

manage future development,

subdivision and changes in land

use in areas exposed to coastal


“We need to make changes to

our District Plan to avoid new

developments being exposed

to an increased risk of coastal

hazards, such as flooding, erosion,

rising ground water and

tsunami,” said city council general

manager of infrastructure,

planning and regulatory services

Jane Davis.

“The current District Plan does

not define the full extent of areas

at risk of coastal hazards and

only manages some activities in

defined areas.

“These gaps mean we aren’t

effectively managing risks, and

development could occur without

the appropriate mechanisms

in place to minimise harm to

people and property.”

The proposed plan change,

which has been shaped by community

feedback on an issues

and options paper released last

year, recognises that risk is not

the same in every location. It

enables the city council to be

responsive in how it manages

development within areas of

potential coastal hazards.

Identification of the risk level

in different areas is based on

work by engineering consultancy

Jacobs, with input from the city

council planners and technical

specialists. This work has been

peer-reviewed by consultancy

Beca and draws on data from

an updated coastal hazards

assessment report published last


“We are continuing to refine

the methodology for the riskbased

approach, including enhancing

the mapping. This work

will be done prior to the plan

change being formally notified

later this year,” Davis said.

“Existing communities will

continue to be able to develop

and use land and resources

where the risk of adverse effects

from coastal hazards is not

increased and can be managed to

an acceptable level.”

Collector’s hunt for rare bottles

COLLECTOR: Josh Svensson with a rare blue soda syphon

and a Christmas tree oil bottle.

• By Kristie Boland

ONE MAN’S rubbish has turned

out to be another man’s fortune.

Twenty years of digging, hours

of research and a keen eye for the

uniqueness of an old glass bottle

has ensured a comfortable retirement

fund for Josh Svensson.

What started as a competition

among young brothers to find the

best glass bottle turned into a collection

of over a thousand glass

bottles, a lot of which were found

in Lyttelton.

Svensson is an antique glass

bottle collector who specialises in

bottles from Lyttelton.

“Some one called me a hoarder,”

said Svensson.

But with a collection worth

more than $80,000, most would

agree it’s a hobby worth having.

“My brother-in-law used to

collect them in the 80s. One

day when I was 12 he took me

and my brothers out fossicking.

We crawled under an old house

and found some old bottles,”

Svensson SAID.

From then, he was hooked.

“It became a competition between

my brothers and myself of

who can find the coolest bottles,”

he said.

The competition went on for

years. One of Svensson’s brothers

decided to sell up a few years

ago and used the money made

A selection of New Zealand fizzy drink bottles. Known as

the torpedo bottle from the 1850s-1900 ​

from selling his collection to put

towards a deposit on a house.

Svensson is in the lower age

demographic of bottle collectors

in New Zealand, he said there is

about 200-300 across the country,

30 or so in Christchurch.

Before recycling and bottle collection

was a thing, people used

to dig holes in their backyards to

dispose of rubbish they could not

burn, like glass bottles.

“People used to just throw them

away, out of sight out of mind if

they were too lazy to dig a hole,”

said Svensson.

Lyttelton was once home to

multiple different soft drink manufacturers

including brands such

as JF Wyatt, NC Schumacher, and

R Milsom.

The glass bottles were made

in England and filled in New

a corker idea

Svensson has spent hours online

researching old newspapers,

old maps and spent time down at

the museum.

He previously lived in Charteris

Bay where he would jump in

the water at low tide in the mud

flats and hunt for his treasure.

“Often when the boats used

to come in back in the day they

would empty their bottles off the

side into the water, some stuck

around in the mud flats,” he said.

Svensson has a metal probe

that he uses to poke into the

ground and determine if there

is clay or dirt that’s never been


“If it goes down easy and hits a

glass item you know someone has

dug a hole there before,” he said.

But it’s not just glass bottles

Svensson has found while digging,

he has come across bones,

old false teeth and even a toilet


“Once we were digging a hole

then eventually realised it might

have been an old long drop, but

thankfully after a hundred odd

years there wasn’t a lot of crap left

there,” said Svensson.

Fossicking for glass bottles was

a popular thing to do back in the

70s Svensson said but there is

now strict rules around it.

“Anything pre-1900s is no go,

it’s an archaeologist’s domain.”

“Often if there’s a new building

site and when diggers are in they

might come across a dumping

site, then you’ve got a limited

opportunity, they’ll give you a

call and they’re often happy to get

a box of beers in return for some

empties,” said Svensson.

There are Facebook groups

where collectors share their

prized collection. Kiwi Auction

has auctions every year online

and also at a national bottle show.

It takes more than just a keen

eye to figure out what bottles

are of value. Some are worth $5,

some $15,000.

“You have to know about it so it

takes years of experience to figure

out what’s what,” Svensson said.

Svensson has about 1000 bottles

in his collection now, he has

found half of them and the other

half he has bought.

During the 20 years he has

been collecting, Svensson added

up he’d spent about 40k on the

collection, the most expensive

being $1000 for a single bottle.

“I see it as an investment. I

enjoy collecting the bottles but

just the history behind it as

well, I’m just a fan of history in


Svensson worked out last year

his collection is valued at more

than 80k.

“Not bad for a bit of rubbish

aye,” he said.

The jetty was previously owned

by the city council but it has been

closed since a post-earthquake

engineering inspection in 2011

found it was unsafe.

Further assessment in 2014

identified a number of problems

and found rebuilding the jetty

would be more viable than repairs.

The trust took over ownership

of the jetty from the city council

in November 2019 after the city

council decided to sell it to the

trust for $1.

The trust suggested the move

after hearing the city council had

no plans to repair the jetty.

Once it is fixed, the 150-yearold

jetty will be sold back to the

city council for $1.

The trust has now finalised

the full contract with HEB

Construction. Part of the tender

negotiations were that the trust

would purchase the hardwood

timber from Australia directly

which saved on some margin.

The trust is also working with

Martin Thompson at LMA Timber,

a local timber importer.

An order for the piles was

made in a week ago and is due to

arrive in Lyttelton in August.

The expected completion date

is late February next year.

“I live in Governors Bay so its

gone the extra mile already on a

Fortunately he is excused from

Rolleston, with team manager

Maria Daly reckoning the

17-year-old has worked out the

ideal alternative.

“Hugh’s doing a Gateway

programme (transition to work).

He does farm work so that’s as

good as any CrossFit training,”

she said.

The combined team morphed

from Lincoln High School’s 1st

the district with fast-growing

Rolleston College the latest addition

Bringing together such a

widespread playing group obviously

presents challenges,

Daly said.

“The challenge we face as

Dreams into Reality: Our Return

From Linwood High School 1954 to

Te Aratai College 2022, our school

continues its proud history.

We are farewelling Linwood College at Ōtākaro. We

honour the fact that there has been education on the

Avonside site for 102 years. The final days of our

small contribution to this legacy is now, the end of

term 1.

In term 2 we return to Aldwins Rd and our completely

rebuilt and stunning new school. Te Aratai College

is inspiring from the 650 seat theatre-standard

auditorium to the sunny student centre and the

student-friendly courtyards. Our design is for

personalised student success and reflects the

new name gifted to us by Ngāi Tūāhuriri, Te Aratai

College, Pathway to the Sea.

Reflecting this, our learning and classroom design

is based on responsiveness to the needs of the

students at that moment. We have classrooms of the

standard, time-honoured size but with the flexibility to

open up. This is because there are occasions when

learning can be more open but equally there are times

for some students when this is a learning disaster. Te

Aratai College also has smaller rooms for students

who learn best in reduced, very quiet environments,

and bigger spaces for when learning can be shared

and for larger student gatherings. This deliberate

design assists staff and students to respond to the

many factors that personalise success.

Of course, new buildings alone do not necessarily

improve education. The relationship with the

teacher - he tāngata, he tāngata, he tāngata -

and the personalisation of learning are the key

for this. However, there is also no doubt that new,

purpose-built buildings and spaces that arise

from these community values of relationships and

personalisation contribute hugely to student success.

This is Te Aratai College.

We look forward to welcoming our community into

their school. Please see our website for information

about tours for our partner primary schools, past

pupils and staff, and other friends.

Treasures from the past:


Ye Olde Inns

IN 1849 Major Alfred

Hornbrook opened a ‘sly grog’

(unlicensed) shop on the site

of the soon to be built Mitre

Hotel in Ōhinehou/Lyttelton;

it became the first pub in

Canterbury and an important

port of call for newly arrived

European settlers.

Although the Mitre escaped

the Great Fire of 1870 which

razed most of the township, just

five years later it was gutted by a

smaller fire.

THe timber building was

rebuilt but was again destroyed

by fire in 1926; as a consequence

its successor was constructed

in more resilient brick and

reinforced concrete. The art deco

influenced building still stands

in its earthquake-damaged state

on the corner of Norwich Quay

and Canterbury St, having been

deemed uneconomic to repair.

That first hotel was closely

followed by many others; in

The Boy from Gorge River

From New Zealand’s remotest family to

the world beyond by Chris Long

The story of how an extraordinary childhood shaped an

extraordinary life.

On the West Coast of the South Island, past deep fiords and

snow-capped mountains, Chris Long grew up two days’ hike from

the nearest road. He was born into the country’s most isolated family,

his parents committed to freedom from capitalist society and connection to the

natural world.

In this inspiring memoir, Chris describes a childhood with nature on his doorstep -

helping his father catch crayfish and his mother grow vegetables, playing with toys

crafted from driftwood and jade, and learning to live in the wild - until, in his teenage

years, he began to wonder: could he survive in the wider world?

By the son of the authors of A Life on Gorge River and A Wife on Gorge River, The Boy

from Gorge River is an enthralling account of chasing adventure while forever staying

true to where you come from.

The Diamond Eye

by Kate Quinn

The brand-new historical novel based on a true story from the bestselling author of The

Rose Code and The Alice Network

She’s the war’s most lethal sniper. And the one they least expect…

In the snowbound city of Kiev, aspiring historian Mila Pavlichenko’s life revolves around

her young son – until Hitler’s invasion of Russia changes everything. Suddenly, she and

her friends must take up arms to save their country from the Fuhrer’s destruction.

Handed a rifle, Mila discovers a gift – and months of blood, sweat and tears turn the

young woman into a deadly sniper: the most lethal hunter of Nazis.

Yet success is bittersweet. Mila is torn from the battlefields of the eastern front and sent

to America while the war still rages. There, she finds an unexpected ally in First Lady

Eleanor Roosevelt, and an unexpected promise of a different future.

But when an old enemy from Mila’s past joins forces with a terrifying new foe, she finds

herself in the deadliest duel of her life.

The Diamond Eye is a haunting novel of heroism born of desperation, of a mother

who became a soldier, of a woman who found her place in the world and changed the

course of history forever.

Heathcote Valley Mountain Bike Park: Jumping to new heights

JUST FIVE years old, Ethan

the Heathcote Valley Mountain

Bike Park, and with each circuit

said Grant

“It’s about

age and ability.”

Go back two years, and New

Zealand was in its first level four

lockdown. Brokenshire and his

teenage boys, all keen mountain

bikers, needed a project.

The idea of a mountain bike

park gained traction with the

Christchurch City Council who

okayed the use of the land, and

then the work really began.

“Two years later, and some

2000+ hours of my time, we now

have a mountain bike park with

jumps, rollers and a pump track,”

Brokenshire said.

We have a small band of hard

workers who have created the

track, and other organisations

More housing choice

is the way forward

Population growth, housing issues – including affordability – and climate change

are prompting a re-think of some of Ōtautahi-Christchurch’s planning rules.

Our proposed plan change

We need to build a wider variety of homes,

and more of them, to suit our changing

housing needs.


For lower emissions – and future generations

– we must build upwards, particularly in and

around our commercial centres within easy

reach of work, school and the shops.

Where we’ll grow


The proposed Draft Housing and Business Choice

Plan Change creates a number of residential

and commercial zones in the city and enables

more and higher housing to be developed.

Developments may still be subject to

a resource consent.




Lyttelton is also included because it is part

of the same labour and housing market as



Ōtakaro Avon River

The rest of the bays such as Diamond Harbour,

Corsair Bay and Governors Bay as well as Akaroa

do not meet the same criteria, and are therefore

not included.

Check out our interactive maps* to find out what

the proposed changes mean for you and your

property. Visit ccc.govt.nz/haveyoursay (Draft

Housing and Business Choice Plan Change).


Church Corner


Ōtakaro Avon River





The Government wants

us to grow up!


We’ve been given direction by the

Government to enable more housing.

North Halswell

This means in most urban residential

zones of the city people will be allowed

to build up to three houses per section,

and up to 12 metres high (three storeys,

depending on building design) without

a resource consent.

Even greater building development –

both residential and commercial – would

be allowed within and around the central

city and suburban commercial centres.

To find out more about the Government

legislation visit



City Centre Zone: unlimited height

High Density Zone: 32 metres enabled (10 storeys, depending on building design)

High Density Zone Precinct: 20 metres enabled (six storeys, depending on building design)

Town Centre that may emerge into a Metropolitan Centre: 20 metres enabled

(six storeys, depending on building design)

Town Centre: 20 metres enabled (six storeys, depending on building design)

Local Centre (Large): 14 metres (four storeys, depending on building design)

Local Centre (Significant): 20 metres enabled (six storeys, depending

on building design)

Medium Density Zone Precinct: 14 metres enabled (four storeys,

depending on building design)

Rest of the city – Medium Density Zone– enables at least 12 metres

(unless Qualifying Matters apply).

Our growth challenge

Changing the way we do things is challenging but it also brings opportunity.

Our climate is changing, the population is growing and there’s increasing pressure on our infrastructure and environment.

For the sake of future generations, we need to make good decisions now about how and where we grow so our city remains

a great place to live and do business, and that we are well positioned to respond to climate change and population growth.

Indicative illustration only: Medium Density

Residential Standards (3 units and 12 metres max.)

Indicative illustration only: High Density Residential

Zone (20 metres max.)

Indicative illustration only: High Density Residential

and Commercial Zones (20 metres max.)

Growing in the right places

While we must follow the Government’s direction, we’re proposing that

some areas have qualities, known as Qualifying Matters. This means the

rules enabling increased development would not apply, or would be

limited, and development remains subject to resource consent approval.

This could be because of their significant heritage or character value, or

because of specific hazards like rockfall, erosion, tsunami or flooding.

Planning ahead is way smarter

We have the water and wastewater pipes in place for additional housing

in most parts of the city, but there are some areas where we may not have

the capacity to service more homes.

Ōtakaro Avon River

We propose adding a district-wide engineering provision to the District

Plan which will require anyone wanting to develop land to check

water and sewer network capacity with us prior to planning a new

development. Call us on 03 941 8999 or 0800 800 169.

Protecting our trees

We know trees are important to people and they play a vital role in

helping tackle climate change.

We’re working on ways to ensure that new housing development does

not come at the expense of the city’s tree canopy. This includes seeking

Financial Contributions from anyone wishing to develop land and who

does not retain or plant 20 per cent tree canopy cover on a site. We’ll

use these contributions to plant more trees on Council owned land.

We propose further protecting trees by making the list of protected

trees in the current District Plan a Qualifying Matter.

Coastal hazards – preparing for change

We’re already feeling the impacts of climate change. We need to plan now

for the effects of coastal hazards on our communities, infrastructure and

environment, so that we are ready for what we will be facing in the future.

We’re proposing changes, via our Draft Coastal Hazards Plan Change, to

avoid increased risk of harm to people and property from coastal hazards

such as flooding, tsunami, and erosion.

Protecting our Residential Heritage Areas

We want to protect the special heritage in some of our residential areas.

Through a separate Draft Heritage Plan Change we’re proposing to create

11 Residential Heritage Areas, which have buildings and features that

are collectively of significance to Christchurch’s heritage and identity.

This means there will be less intensification enabled than in standard

residential areas.

The plan change also proposes adding around 65 buildings, items and

building interiors to the Schedule of Significant Historic Heritage.

What this means for Lyttelton

Through our Draft Heritage Plan Change, we’re proposing Lyttelton

Township be exempt from as much intensification as other residential

areas to protect its significant heritage and identity.

This doesn’t mean you can’t develop residential property. It means you’ll

still need a resource consent for new buildings, additions or alterations

to buildings, fences and walls over 1.5 metres in height, and to demolish

or relocate any building that’s considered ‘most significant’. The Council

will assess all development proposals against how they affect the area’s

heritage values.

Have your say

We welcome your feedback on our Housing and Business Choice,

Coastal Hazards, Heritage and Radio Communication Pathways

draft plan changes from 11 April until 13 May 2022. This will help us

shape the draft changes needed to bring our District Plan in line with

government direction, ahead of formal consultation before 20 August.

Reflecting on the past, looking toward the future

It has been 40 years since McKillop and St Mary’s

colleges amalgamated to form Marian College on

25th March 1982, and as we reflect on where we’ve

been and where we’re going, one theme stands out -


This is aptly reflected in the name gifted for our

new school site by the Ngai Tūāhuriri Education

Committee - Māhutonga (Southern Cross). The

Southern Cross is important to Māori as these stars

guided their ancestors across the ocean to Aotearoa.

The choice of this beautiful name reflects the

journey of Marian College from our founding

schools of St Mary’s College and McKillop College

to our new home in Papanui. The Sisters of Mercy

journeyed from Ireland and the Sisters of St Joseph

of the Sacred Heart journeyed across the Tasman

to New Zealand. In more recent times Marian

College has journeyed due to the impact of the 2011


We are excited to complete this journey now, to

our stunning new school where we join the North

Parish, our brother school St Bede’s College and St

Joseph’s Papanui. A beautiful visual symbol of the

journey will be the star pattern on the roof of the

new chapel, representing the constellation from

the night sky of 25th March 1982, the opening day

of Marian.

As we look toward this new future, we also think

about those who have come before. To celebrate 40

years of Marian, we’re inviting past whānau to

send us your photos or share your memories of

your time at Marian (or McKillop and St Mary’s

colleges) through The Marian College Project. Head

to our website for more details.

New School Update

Work on the new school on

Lydia Street is progressing well.

Each month the site is changing

with strengthening of the

building completed and work

on erecting the timber structures

for classrooms due to begin this


The ongoing impact of Covid

on the building industry and

supply chains is expected to have

some impact, but we are looking

forward to being settled into our

new school mid-2023.

Train in Town,

Play in Paradise.

Overlooking Lyttelton Harbour,

Diamond Harbour has long been

renowned for its beauty and views,

and it’s now a message its Rugby

Club is looking to capitalise on,

with the Diamond Harbour Rugby

Club utilising their location wisely

in the search for playing numbers.

Playing at the picturesque Stoddart

Park, Diamond Harbour finds itself an

attractive location for seniors and juniors

alike. That’s why, in its search to help

boost playing numbers and accessibility

to training, the club’s Division 2 side

trains at South Hagley on a Wednesday

night, lending itself to the phrase

“Train in Town, Play in Paradise.”

“It started a few years ago now,”

said Club President Paul Dennis,

“and with Diamond Harbour being

a relatively small community, it

enables the club to prosper and

attract people to our great little club.

“One of the barriers for us is

that people have

the impression that

Diamond Harbour is

too far away, which

can be a good thing

sometimes, but having

the training at Hagley

Park allows players to

access and get involved

with the club.”

Despite only a

handful of the squad

living in Diamond

Harbour, hosting

training in town

tends to suit everyone, with many

of the team working and living near

Christchurch. Dennis is one of those

who permanently reside in Diamond

Harbour but having training on the

way home from work means that he

“For us, this is

focusing on a supportive


and to build

up the comradery

off the field”

- Paul Dennis, Diamond Harbour

RFC Club President

too can get down and be involved

with the Ellesmere Division 2 side.

“Our mission as a club is to remove

the barriers to playing rugby, but

especially for playing for Diamond

Harbour. So, for training, it allows

us to remove the barrier of driving to

Diamond Harbour after work and be

agile as a club to make ourselves a

welcoming destination to play rugby.”

It’s not the only great initiative

being run out of the club, with the

club hosting Halswell Wigram on

the ninth of April in what is hoped to

become an annual pre-season fixture,

with this year’s addition being used to

support the ‘I Am Hope’ charity and

their positive mental health messaging.

“Over the last few years since I

have been President, and even before

that, mental health has been something

that the club’s gravitated towards.

“For us, this is focusing on a

supportive environment and to build up

the comradery off the

field too so that we have

boys that will support

each other through all

sorts of challenges.”

Dennis said.

“We’re going to be

competing for the Fox

Cup with the Halswell

Wigram Battlers. We

played them at the end

of last year and we’re

excited to have it as a

pre-season game this

year. Kerry Hocking

will be refereeing the game this weekend

and he suggested we make the game in

support of the ‘I Am Hope’ foundation.

“Alongside the fundraiser, we’ll

have Ronnie Moore guest speaking

about the cause and of course, the rugby

in what has been a tough time of

late with Covid and the like. This

game allows us to use that vehicle to

connect people and let them know

that they are not alone and there’s

pathways to get the tools to help deal

with any challenges they have got.”

Initiatives such as these all go in to

making Diamond Harbour an attractive

place to play rugby and be involved

with a club, and why wouldn’t it, when

you get to play rugby in paradise.

A new star in people mover market

WITH THE ever-growing

expansion of the sport utility

vehicle market, you may be

forgiven for thinking the

traditional people mover has


Well, you have only got to look

at the number of them on New

Zealand roads, there are Toyota

Previas, Honda Odysseys and Kia

Carnivals everywhere, they are

used for taxis, shuttles and mobile

homes/campervans, to name just a

few of the applications I’ve seen.

Sure, there haven’t been many

entries into that market over the

years, but those companies that

have offered seven and eight-seater

models have been well rewarded.

Of course, you have to take into

account there are many van-based

transporters such as Ford Transits,

Toyota Hiaces and Hyundai iLoads.

Hyundai has taken that

van concept and broadened

it dramatically. The Staria has

arrived and it is space age, not

only in space inside but it is also

a futuristic people mover that has

also arrived in five-seater/van form

and as a van only.

I’m due to evaluate the latter

later, but this evaluations focuses

on the eight-seater, and I can report

that it is far more people-centric

that some of the van-based models

that have long been plying our


For one, the Staria is plush, its

monocoque chassis is state of the

art, there’s no ladder platform

here, there are no live axles and

the fully independent suspension

system locates four-wheel-drive

componentry. Well, of course not

all models have 4WD, but the

range-topping Limited does and it

represents comfortable, safe travel

– all variants of the Staria have

a five star Australasian New Car

Assessment Program rating.

All variants also get a 2.2-litre

diesel engine. This is significant

because it is an engine that also

powers several other Hyundai

models and, as I’ve alluded to in the

past, it is an absolute gem in terms

of refinement. If you didn’t know

there was a diesel under the bonnet

you’d be hard pressed to pick up its


Not only is it superbly

sophisticated, the turbocharged

twin-camshaft four-potter pumps

out a healthy 130kW (3800rpm)

with a stunning 430Nm of torque

available all of the way from

1500rpm to 2500rpm.

Coupled to an eight-speed

automatic gearbox the Staria’s

driveline is the epitome of advanced

technology, it is powerful, smooth

and silent. As mentioned, in people

mover form drive is channelled

through Hyundai’s H-Trac system.

That means even though the engine

is sitting east-west (transversely)

under the bonnet, drive is passed

through a transfer system to the rear.

It’s a clever system and all

together serves to prove the ability

and ingenuity of the Hyundai

engineers, the Staria is a quality

vehicle through and through.

In terms of performance,

unladen the Staria will reach

100km/h from a standstill in 9.2sec

and will make an 80-120km/h

highway overtake in 5.9sec. More

importantly, in this day and age of

out-of-control fuel price hikes the

Staria will return an 8.2-litre per

100km combined cycle figure, that

complemented by a 9.4l/100km

figure showing on the dash panel

readout when I took the evaluation

car back to the dealership. At

100km/h, the display is reading

around an impressive 5l/100km.

On the subject of dash displays,

the Staria has a completely digital

layout, there are traditional

rev counter and speedometer

displays, which change to camera

views when the indicator stalk

is activated. This is a function

Hyundai has incorporated into

many of its vehicles in recent

times, it’s a good safety device and

it’s also rather clever in the way it


Elsewhere, the dash panel is

vast, there’s a huge central display

that controls many of the vehicle’s

functions and it’s intuitive, the

icons are large and easy to stab.

The Staria people mover isn’t

cheap, it comes in at $85,900

($69,990 front-drive only) which is

quite a bit more pricey than that of

its partner company Kia’s Carnival

at $59,990; and if you take into

account the new Odyssey from

• Price – Hyundai Staria

Limited, $85,990

• Performance –

$50k, there is a quite a bit more

up front you have to lay down.

However, you do get a lot of car for

the money and you get a vehicle

that is very adaptable.

Some of the Staria’s biggest

features are things such as twin

electric side sliding doors, electric

rear door with timer, electric

sunroofs, keyless entry and

ignition, satellite navigation, full

leather trim, heated and cooled

front seats, heated steering wheel,

paddle-shifters and something

I really like, and those hard

of hearing will relate to, is the

microphone and speaker system

that allows those front and rear to


Another thing that does stand

out is the Staria’s size, it’s over 5.2m

long and is high at almost 2m. The

latter means it’s a bit of a step up for

the driver and front seat passenger.

It’s easier to access the rear seats but

if you are climbing in and out each

day that could trouble those who

have a developing hip problem, like

we all seem to get through old age.

A grab handle on the driver’s side

would help, but the Staria doesn’t

get that.

Nevertheless, the Staria is still a

very user-friendly car and nothing

will change that, it is built to satisfy

the needs of those who transport

people on a daily basis, it will do

that for years on end and provide a

nice driving experience at the same

time. It is far more car-like to drive

than van-like, and with the high

driving position vision through all

quarters is outstanding.

It also handles well for its bulk,

sure there’s over two-tonne to

get through a corner, but it steers

lightly and feels very manoeuvrable

through a turning circle of just

under 12m.

I can see the very stylish Staria

appealing to those in the shuttle

industry when airline travel returns

to full steam. Its driveline is well

proven and I strongly suspect its

four-wheel-drive system would also

be useful taking a load of skiers up

the Mt Hutt access road.

I’m actually looking forward to

driving the van equivalent soon,

I’m not expecting quite the same

luxury inside, but I do know the

driveline will deliver the same

refinement, and I have some tasks

lined up for it, the kind of everyday

jobs that can be completed when

you have a spacious cargo area on

Our population is growing and we’re planning for that now.

We’ve been given direction by central government to enable

more houses to be built upwards and in our city’s existing urban


We need to make changes to our District Plan to comply with

the National Policy Statement on Urban Development and the

Resource Management (Enabling Housing Supply and Other

Matters) Amendment Act and would like feedback on what we are


What are we proposing?

PC12 Draft Coastal Hazards Plan Change

We need to avoid increasing the risk of harm to people and

property from coastal hazards including flooding, tsunami,

and erosion. We are proposing to do this by taking a risk based

approach to the management of development, subdivision and

land use in areas exposed to coastal hazards. Changes to the

District Plan will give effect to the New Zealand Coastal Policy

Statement and the Canterbury Regional Policy Statement.

PC13 Draft Heritage Plan Change

We are proposing that 11 new residential heritage areas across the

city be identified for protection in the District Plan to recognise

Christchurch’s special heritage and identity and adding around

65 buildings, items and building interiors to the Schedule of

Significant Historic Heritage.

PC14 Draft Housing and Business Choice Plan Change

To bring our District Plan in line with government direction that has

been given via the National Policy Statement-Urban Development

(NPS-UD) and the Resource Management (Enabling Housing

Supply) Amendment Act to enable more development in the city’s

existing urban footprint.

PC15 Draft Radio Communication Pathways

We need to protect airspace used for emergency radio

communications by stopping development that blocks it.

Information is available at the following webpage –

Feedback must be received before 5pm on Friday 13 May 2022.

We welcome feedback as this helps us ensure we haven’t missed

something as we prepare for more formal consultation. We are

crackle and pop because it is resinous and

a soft firewood.
