A RETIRED businessman<br />

who says he never wants to<br />

grow up has come forward<br />

as being the mystery<br />

supermarket angel who<br />

recently helped out a family.<br />

Dean Graham, 56, son of<br />

late Mainfreight rich-lister<br />

Neil Graham, said buying<br />

people’s groceries or paying<br />

for their restaurant bills was<br />

something he did on a weekly<br />

basis around New Zealand.<br />

“It’s just giving people<br />

something to put a smile on<br />

their face really. These days<br />

it’s a lot of doom and gloom,<br />

and things are tough for a lot<br />

of people,” he said.<br />

Group<br />

to fight<br />

Lincoln<br />

South<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

OPPONENTS to Lincoln South<br />

say they have legal experts<br />

within their ranks to fight the<br />

development.<br />

It could cost tens of thousands<br />

of dollars to take an appeal to stop<br />

the 1710-home subdivision going<br />

ahead.<br />

The district council last week<br />

approved a controversial Carter<br />

Group plan change application,<br />

Plan Change 69, which has paved<br />

the way for the development.<br />

Lincoln resident Denise Cole<br />

and about 40 fellow residents are<br />

gathering under the banner of a<br />

new incorporated society they<br />

have called Lincoln Voice.<br />

Cole said they had legal and<br />

other experts within their ranks,<br />

who could help keep costs down<br />

for any appeal they may pursue.<br />

“We do have quite a few people<br />

to tap into, and that’s where we<br />

are at at the moment, looking into<br />

how we can do that,” Cole said.<br />

AFTER multiple ram-raids<br />

and break-ins at the Prebbleton<br />

Dairy, local kids came together<br />

to show their love.<br />

Prebbleton School pupils<br />

raised more than a thousand<br />

dollars last week for the dairy,<br />

following two ram-raids in<br />

May and a break-in in late<br />

April.<br />

The school’s executive officer,<br />

Tegan Thornley, said the kids felt<br />

very sorry for dairy owner Sam<br />

Mesta. Many of them walk past<br />

the shop daily on their way to<br />

and from school.<br />

It led to pupils suggesting they<br />

could hold a mufti day to raise<br />

money for the dairy. With more<br />

than 500 pupils showing up in<br />

mufti, each donating a gold coin<br />

or more, about $1100 was raised<br />

and donated.<br />

Thornley said while the school<br />

often does mufti days to support<br />

charities, this was the first time<br />

the pupils raised money to help<br />

out locally.<br />

“The owner was so appreciative.<br />

He was quite overwhelmed<br />

when they told him what we<br />

were doing,” she said.<br />

Dairy owner Sam Mesta said<br />

he couldn’t be more thankful.<br />

“I really appreciate each and<br />

every kid, management, teachers,<br />

and everyone . . . I’m especially<br />

glad that I have that kind of<br />

community to stand with me in<br />

With his house attached to<br />

and his family.<br />

“I can see what’s going on,<br />

Dean Graham: ‘I don’t want to grow up’<br />

• From page 1<br />

Graham’s charitable acts have<br />

hit headlines in the past, alongside<br />

a brush with the law.<br />

Last year he won another<br />

Trade Me charity auction, paying<br />

$10,420 for a cardboard Lamborghini,<br />

only to sell it<br />

about five months later,<br />

donating the proceeds<br />

to I Am Hope. Then<br />

in November he won<br />

a Trade Me auction<br />

for a Martin Jetpack<br />

prototype, paying<br />

$<strong>15</strong>8,200 for the singleperson<br />

aircraft, which<br />

he intends in future to<br />

donate to Canterbury<br />

Museum.<br />

In 2018, Graham was sentenced<br />

to 80 hours community work after<br />

admitting to charges of allowing<br />

his premises to be used for growing<br />

cannabis, a licensing breach<br />

under the Arms Act over firearms<br />

found at the property and possession<br />

of a cannabis pipe.<br />

The father-of-five last month<br />

left more than $200 cash with<br />

a Lincoln New World checkout<br />

operator to pay for the groceries<br />

of the family who was behind<br />

him in the checkout queue.<br />

Mother Jen Stewart told Star<br />

Media she and her young family<br />

had just been through a difficult<br />

time as they recovered from<br />

Covid.<br />

Jen Stewart<br />

“I was just speechless. This<br />

person didn’t know how grateful<br />

I was, on that very week, that<br />

he would pay for my shopping,”<br />

Stewart said.<br />

She used more than $100 to pay<br />

for her groceries, and gave the<br />

remainder, which was<br />

a similar amount, to a<br />

grateful single-mother<br />

friend for her groceries.<br />

Graham said he first<br />

started random acts of<br />

kindness in supermarkets<br />

and restaurants<br />

about two years ago. He<br />

was buying a sandwich<br />

at The Hub in Hornby<br />

when he saw an elderly<br />

couple behind him scraping up<br />

change for their lunch.<br />

When he went back about two<br />

months later, one of the staff<br />

members told him the couple<br />

had started doing the same for<br />

others.<br />

“I though to myself: ‘If I can do<br />

that and change the way people<br />

think, I think it’s a good thing.’ I<br />

care, and I can help, I do want to<br />

change people’s lives. I just think<br />

life is so short, I just want to put<br />

it out there to believe we all care<br />

for other human beings.”<br />

Among his most generous gifts<br />

had been when he gave a friend a<br />

$100,000 Ford F-<strong>15</strong>0 Raptor truck<br />

for his birthday.<br />

“I said: ‘Happy Birthday’ and I<br />

COLLECTOR: Some of Graham’s recent purchases include a Martin Jetpack prototype and<br />

a cardboard Lamborghini.<br />

threw him the keys, he just burst<br />

into tears.”<br />

He had also given away eight of<br />

his motorbikes to friends.<br />

“There’s no point dying with<br />

it.”<br />

He was not concerned some<br />

may take advantage of his generosity.<br />

“Friends don’t hang around me<br />

for that, because they know me<br />

from before when I had nothing,”<br />

Graham said.<br />

Graham said he started at<br />

the bottom of the ladder at<br />

Mainfreight, the trucking giant<br />

company which his father<br />

co-founded. He was a storeman<br />

and rented with flatmates; when<br />

money was tight they would nick<br />

each other’s drinks out of the<br />

fridge.<br />

He had been married twice,<br />

been a solo father for eight years,<br />

and today lives with his partner<br />

on their Lincoln lifestyle block,<br />

where he is building a man cave.<br />

He said he had never made it a<br />

secret that he smoked cannabis,<br />

but hardly did it these days as he<br />

was getting “too old.”<br />

He did his community work at<br />

Rolleston Salvation Army, where<br />

he had been humbled by the good<br />

work of the charity. He had gone<br />

back there on a yearly basis since,<br />

donating clothes.<br />

He got the opportunity to be<br />

a supermarket and restaurant<br />

mystery angel around New<br />

Zealand as he bought motorbikes<br />

and cars, and when to motorbike<br />

and car shows around the<br />

country.<br />

He loved to ride and collect<br />

motorcycles in particular, and his<br />

range included two from the Easy<br />

Rider movie. In addition, actor<br />

Keanu Reeves was to personally<br />

deliver one of a limited range<br />

of motorcycles the actor was<br />

building later this year. When<br />

his man cave was completed, he<br />

would be bolting 25 motorcycles<br />

to the wall.<br />

“I don’t want to grow up,<br />

growing up is boring,” he said.<br />

Storms and sea surges damaging farms<br />

FRUSTRATED farmers in<br />

the district want answers after<br />

storms and high tide surges<br />

continue to cause havoc on their<br />

properties.<br />

Property owners along the<br />

coast have copped extensive<br />

damage from saltwater and<br />

sand from the adjoining Taumutu<br />

Beach breaching nearby<br />

seabanks and spilling through<br />

paddocks.<br />

There has been confusion<br />

among affected locals around<br />

who was ultimately responsible<br />

for the clean up.<br />

Sand and debris remain scattered<br />

through Tim Sanson’s<br />

60-acre (24ha) block, with three<br />

quarters of his property now<br />

unusable.<br />

“We’ve only really got one<br />

surviving paddock out of seven,”<br />

he said.<br />

“I know it’s not a big farm, but<br />

it’s ours and we’ve got a guy that<br />

leases it and he’s got 45 acres of<br />

it that is unusable for between a<br />

year to a year and a half.”<br />

The knock-on effects have been<br />

felt along the coastline with the<br />

extreme weather causing further<br />

drainage issues.<br />

A nearby creek was overrun<br />

with sand during a storm last<br />

month, causing flooding on<br />

farmland which historically has<br />

been untouched, Sanson said.<br />

“That’s really difficult on those<br />

guys because we’ve got some<br />

high producing farms around<br />

here.<br />

“Nothing grows after the saltwater<br />

has been on there.<br />

“(The land) is that wet that<br />

they can’t get on there to do any<br />

work so it’s had a significant affect<br />

on a lot of people.”<br />

Fellow farmer Kent Tilson has<br />

also had sections of farmland<br />

inundated.<br />

A long-standing resident in the<br />

Southbridge area, Tilson said the<br />

RUINED: Three quarters of Tim Sanson’s land is now<br />

unusable. He says nothing grows on a farm damaged by<br />

salt water.<br />

PHOTOS: RNZ/NATE MCKINNON<br />

problems are the worst he had<br />

ever seen.<br />

“I know certainly I had about<br />

<strong>15</strong> to 20 acres of young grass<br />

that I was depending on for the<br />

spring that I won’t have anything<br />

of.”<br />

Sanson described the wider<br />

response from community leaders<br />

as limp – with uncertainty<br />

around who was responsible for<br />

the clean up.<br />

Initial inquiries with Environment<br />

Canterbury suggested multiple<br />

permits would be required<br />

for clearing sand and gravel off<br />

his property, he said.<br />

ECan said it was working with<br />

district authorities to get a better<br />

understanding on issues caused<br />

by coastal erosion.<br />

Operations director Katherine<br />

Harbrow said a consent may be<br />

required by owners who had<br />

damage before undertaking<br />

repair or protection work.<br />

“Coastal erosion is an issue<br />

that will only be exacerbated by<br />

climate change,” she said.<br />

“As such, we are aware that<br />

coastal retreat coupled with sealevel<br />

rise will increase the likelihood<br />

of damage to some coastal<br />

properties.<br />

“This makes working with<br />

district authorities and other<br />

stakeholders important for understanding<br />

and clarifying what<br />

landowners can do to protect<br />

their properties, such as through<br />

stopbanks or moving debris.”<br />

just make those decisions isn’t<br />

the type of council that we are,<br />

is a number of legal questions<br />

there that are potentially raised<br />

about the impact upon the<br />

reputation of council, but also<br />

the financial risk to council in<br />

rejecting this proposal.”<br />

Lemon was referring to<br />

information in front of<br />

district councillors that not<br />

accepting the commissioner’s<br />

recommendation could expose<br />

the district council to legal<br />

challenge and significant legal<br />

costs, in defending any action<br />

that may arise from declining to<br />

“There is<br />

It was weighing heavily on my<br />

mind should we delay this for<br />

the National Policy Statement<br />

for Highly Productive Land,<br />

should we give further time? I’m<br />

not enjoying this because it is a<br />

difficult decision, but the reality<br />

is we have employed a highly<br />

qualified commissioner who<br />

has significant history and has<br />

addressed every single issue that<br />

has been raised. It gives me no<br />

joy as a local councillor to say<br />

that I will be supporting the staff<br />

recommendation, because that is<br />

the right and proper thing to do.”<br />

comment, he said:<br />

“I think there has to come a<br />

stage somewhere, sometime,<br />

that we have a look at how much<br />

arable land, and how wide our<br />

towns and cities spread. I sat<br />

there listening to people talking<br />

from Lincoln, and thought ‘I’m<br />

in your camp, but unfortunately<br />

I can’t jump into your camp,<br />

because I’ve been committed<br />

by the fact that the council<br />

have asked for a commissioner<br />

finding.’ The commissioner has<br />

given his finding, we really can’t<br />

go back on that. You are sort of<br />

gazumped and checkmated to be<br />

honest with you.”<br />

found this physically difficult,<br />

as talking triggered bouts of<br />

coughing. He said:<br />

“It’s the worst vote I have<br />

ever had to vote on since<br />

being on council, or the<br />

hardest, put it that way. We<br />

really had to vote the way we<br />

did. Hopefully new legislation<br />

coming out in the near future<br />

(National Policy Statement for<br />

Highly Productive Land) will<br />

alter that. I still disagree with<br />

the idea of using this soil, there<br />

should be more protection for<br />

it. We have done several of<br />

these plan changes before, and<br />

the same questions have come<br />

up each time about putting<br />

housing on good soil. But at<br />

the end of the legal opinion we<br />

had, I thought that was the only<br />

legal and honest way I could<br />

vote.”<br />

AGAINST<br />

Cr Sophie<br />

McInnes<br />

“PC69 has<br />

neatly slipped<br />

in before<br />

the National<br />

Policy<br />

Statement<br />

for Highly<br />

Productive Land was finalised.<br />

We have also been advised that<br />

declining the recommendation<br />

risks loss of trust in council,<br />

and poor reputation. Well hello,<br />

that has already happened. We<br />

have a community that feels<br />

unheard, even when they have<br />

subject matter experts who live<br />

and work among them. They are<br />

ignored. We even heard from<br />

them again today with a range<br />

of extremely valid concerns.<br />

These aren’t NIMBYs, they<br />

are poking valid holes in an<br />

application that itself is a timely<br />

and opportunistic exploitation of<br />

loop holes.”<br />

Cr Jenny<br />

Gallagher<br />

Did not speak<br />

at the meeting.<br />

Approached<br />

for comment<br />

afterwards, she<br />

said:<br />

“The reason<br />

that I supported Cr McInnes to<br />

have the decision delayed was<br />

for the Government decision on<br />

the National Policy Statement<br />

for Highly Productive Land. The<br />

main reason that I objected to<br />

the plan change was that the site<br />

in Lincoln is made up of highly<br />

productive soils that we need to<br />

protect for <strong>Selwyn</strong>. Land drainage<br />

is also an issue in this area. There<br />

is not enough infrastructure for a<br />

subdivision of this size.”<br />

NO VOTE<br />

Cr Malcolm Lyall, Cr Debra Hasson, Cr Nicole Reid,<br />

Cr Mark Alexander<br />

Lyall was absent from the meeting due to illness. However, even<br />

if he had been there, he would not have voted due to a conflict of<br />

interest. Lyall, Hasson, Reid and Alexander are district council hearing<br />

commissioners on the district council’s proposed district plan. They<br />

abstained from voting on the basis this creates a conflict of interest,<br />

because the PC69 applicant, the Carter Group company of Rolleston<br />

Industrial Developments Ltd, is also a submitter to the proposed<br />

district plan.<br />

Group yet to decide whether to appeal or not<br />

DISAPPOINTED: Lincoln area residents opposed to Plan Change 69 may fight the district<br />

council decision. Those attending the meeting last week are pictured above. Among<br />

those who spoke at the public forum were Professor Keith Cameron (third from left), next<br />

to (from left) Denise Cole, Sam Carrick (holding letter), and Sue Prendergast.<br />

• From page 1<br />

Once the district council’s<br />

decision to approve the plan<br />

change is publicly notified, those<br />

who submitted during public<br />

consultation have 30 working<br />

days to make an appeal to the<br />

Environment Court.<br />

Natural resources law expert<br />

Professor Barry Barton told the<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> that in situations<br />

such as these, some groups were<br />

capable of preparing and arguing<br />

their own case, which brought legal<br />

costs down. Another expense<br />

they had to consider was that for<br />

expert evidence, in order to back<br />

up their arguments in front of<br />

the Environment Court.<br />

Cole said she expected the cost<br />

could be anything from a few<br />

thousand to tens of thousands of<br />

dollars. At this stage the group<br />

was investigating whether to appeal<br />

or not.<br />

Tim Carter of Carter Group<br />

declined to answer questions<br />

from the <strong>Selwyn</strong> <strong>Times</strong> about a<br />

potential appeal, and what the<br />

time line his company had for<br />

developing the subdivision.<br />

In an emailed statement, Carter<br />

said the company was “delighted”<br />

PC69 had been approved.<br />

“We were pleased the commissioner<br />

acknowledged that there<br />

will be significant ecological benefits<br />

from the rezoning, including<br />

enhancing and protecting the<br />

existing waterways, compared<br />

to leaving the land in its present<br />

rural zoning,” Carter said.<br />

The company already had more<br />

than 300 registrations of interest<br />

in sections on its Lincoln South<br />

website.<br />

The development would include<br />

three commercial centres.<br />

“We acknowledge the community’s<br />

desire for a medical centre<br />

and a supermarket. We have<br />

already met with the Ministry<br />

of Education, as we understand<br />

the need for future schools in the<br />

area.”<br />

Meanwhile, about <strong>15</strong> Lincoln<br />

residents attended last week’s<br />

district council meeting, witnessing<br />

councillors debate and then<br />

decide to approve PC69.<br />

At one point the group broke<br />

into applause, after they heard Cr<br />

Sophie McInnes speak out on the<br />

reasons why she wanted to delay<br />

the district council’s decision.<br />

Cole and husband Sam<br />

Carrick, Lincoln grandmother<br />

Sue Prendergast, and emeritus<br />

professor of soil science at<br />

Lincoln University, Keith<br />

Cameron, had separately<br />

addressed councillors prior to the<br />

discussion, in the public forum<br />

section of the meeting.<br />

Among their chief concerns<br />

was loss of highly productive<br />

soils, particularly on the verge of<br />

Government planning to make<br />

its final decisions on the proposed<br />

National Policy Statement<br />

for Highly Productive Land next<br />

month.<br />

They believed if the PC69 decision<br />

could be delayed, then the<br />

district council would be able to<br />

take the new policy statement<br />

into consideration, and not solely<br />

be guided by the National Policy<br />

Statement for Urban Development,<br />

under which the PC69<br />

application had been allowed.<br />

Since the NPS-UD was<br />

introduced in 2020, the district<br />

council has received 16 private<br />

plan change requests for<br />

rezoning. If all approved, they<br />

would enable about 10,000<br />

further residential sites in eastern<br />

areas of the district.<br />

Rugby<br />

says no to<br />

funding<br />

stadium<br />

• By Chris Barclay<br />

RUGBY HAS reiterated it will not<br />

contribute financially to a new<br />

stadium for Christchurch.<br />

With the budget for the 30,000-<br />

seat Te Kaha Canterbury Multi-<br />

Use Arena blowing out $<strong>15</strong>0<br />

million to $683 million, the future<br />

of the project is in doubt.<br />

Asked if there was any scope for<br />

New Zealand Rugby, which recently<br />

signed a $200 million deal<br />

with US private equity firm Silver<br />

Lake, to contribute to the project,<br />

the answer was: No.<br />

“Any decisions around the size<br />

and design of a new multi-use stadium<br />

in Christchurch ultimately<br />

rests with the city and central<br />

government,” said New Zealand<br />

Rugby general manager professional<br />

rugby and performance,<br />

Chris Lendrum.<br />

The Canterbury Rugby Football<br />

Union, as far back as 2017, ruled<br />

out helping to pay for what then<br />

chairman Trevor McIntyre described<br />

as a “community facility”.<br />

Current CRFU chief executive<br />

The future of the building is<br />

at risk as the district council<br />

prepares to make a decision at its<br />

meeting next week.<br />

Rolleston RSA<br />

opened a poll on<br />

its Facebook page<br />

<strong>June</strong> 3, which had<br />

attracted 218 votes<br />

by Thursday last<br />

week.<br />

The vast majority,<br />

197 people,<br />

voted for Fosters<br />

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz<br />

Support for RSA using homestead<br />

Richard<br />

Hurt<br />

Homestead as their preference<br />

for the place the club should<br />

establish itself, as opposed to<br />

the town’s community centre,<br />

which received 16 votes, or<br />

Helpet Park, which received two<br />

votes, or other yet to be decided<br />

options, which received three<br />

votes. The option of <strong>Selwyn</strong> Regional<br />

Park received no votes.<br />

The rapidly growing club is<br />

seeking a facility which supports<br />

gatherings, military remembrance<br />

services, community<br />

events, as well as a bar, restaurant<br />

and cafe.<br />

Fosters Homestead has been<br />

flagged for removal by the district<br />

council which owns it.<br />

The district council came under<br />

fire earlier this year from the<br />

building’s previous owners of<br />

the Foster family, who said their<br />

former home had been allowed<br />

to deteriorate and succumb to<br />

vandalism. They wanted the district<br />

council to consult with the<br />

public on possible future uses of<br />

the building.<br />

Rolleston RSA Club secretary/<br />

treasurer Richard Hurt said he<br />

was not surprised by the results<br />

of the poll.<br />

“All of the people we have<br />

COMMUNITY<br />

VENUE: Fosters<br />

Homestead<br />

(left) could<br />

be restored<br />

to its former<br />

glory (below) if<br />

Rolleston RSA<br />

took it over.<br />

spoken to and people who come<br />

to our club nights, they have expressed<br />

the overwhelming desire<br />

to use that rather than anywhere<br />

else,” Hurt said.<br />

The club has proposed to pay<br />

the district council a peppercorn<br />

rental, say $1 per year, but take<br />

on the responsibility of renovations,<br />

maintenance and running<br />

costs.<br />

Hurt said the RSA would<br />

be asking councillors at their<br />

meeting next week to delay a<br />

decision on what should happen<br />

to the building. This would<br />

be to give time for the RSA to<br />

prepare a proposal so the district<br />

council could make an informed<br />

decision.<br />

SQUIRE THE three-legged<br />

cat from Darfield would have<br />

been an easy target for the<br />

person who shot him, says his<br />

owner Shelly Hindle.<br />

The three-year-old fluffy<br />

ginger was rushed to the vet<br />

after returning home with<br />

blood all over him on Friday.<br />

The vet confirmed he had<br />

been shot, causing a fractured<br />

lower jaw and leaving bullet<br />

fragments in soft tissue.<br />

Hindle said the latest injury<br />

occurred after just one year<br />

ago Squire had to have a leg<br />

amputated due to a crushed<br />

paw, likely having occurred<br />

from being caught in a trap.<br />

Having only three legs<br />

meant he walked slowly and<br />

awkwardly, so it would have<br />

been easy for someone to aim<br />

a gun at him.<br />

Hindle said vets’ bills so<br />

far were about $3000. The<br />

figure was expected to climb<br />

as he may need one or more<br />

surgeries. However, the family<br />

would be paying it regardless.<br />

Squire was very special<br />

to herself, husband Richard<br />

and their children, including<br />

teenager Logan.<br />

“He’s like a dog, he comes<br />

in and he talks to us, he<br />

plays in the snow, he has his<br />

own teddy bear that he carts<br />

around. He’s a right smooch,<br />

but he’s feisty with it.”<br />

Squire is now down to having<br />

just six of his nine lives<br />

remaining, having been saved<br />

as a stray by the family after<br />

turning up on their doorstep<br />

as a starving kitten.<br />

‘RIGHT SMOOCH’:<br />

Logan Hindle with<br />

family cat Squire,<br />

before he lost one<br />

of his front legs.<br />

Hindle said residents of<br />

her rural residential neighbourhood<br />

shot rabbits and<br />

possums, nevertheless, she believed<br />

the shooting of Squire<br />

had been deliberate.<br />

It made her look back on the<br />

incident of his crushed paw<br />

one year ago more so as if this<br />

had been deliberate as well,<br />

and that it could be linked to<br />

the reported disappearances<br />

of a number of cats in the<br />

wider area in recent times.<br />

She planned to report the<br />

shooting to police.<br />

New uniforms proposed<br />

for Darfield HS students<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

WOOLLEN JERSEYS and girls’<br />

dresses will be out, and blazers<br />

and ties will become optional,<br />

under new proposals for the<br />

Darfield High School uniform.<br />

In addition,<br />

a school jacket<br />

with school<br />

logo would be<br />

introduced, and<br />

rules would<br />

be loosened<br />

around hair<br />

styles, make up,<br />

Andy<br />

England<br />

jewellery and<br />

tattoos.<br />

The school is<br />

surveying students,<br />

staff and families on the<br />

proposed changes, which would<br />

take effect next year.<br />

Principal Andy England said<br />

from about 110 responses received<br />

as of Friday last week, the<br />

great majority were in favour of<br />

change.<br />

“We are responding to student<br />

need and it is time for a refresh,”<br />

England said.<br />

He said there had been pressure<br />

from students for several<br />

years through student council.<br />

Items unpopular included the<br />

girls dress, and blue school shirt,<br />

due to the stiff material it was<br />

made from.<br />

While there were currently<br />

restrictions on hair, make-up,<br />

jewellery and tattoos, the law<br />

had changed and did not support<br />

these.<br />

The proposal was to ease<br />

restrictions but keep a rule preventing<br />

anything which could be<br />

offensive or unsafe.<br />

The traditional woollen jersey<br />

would be replaced with a soft<br />

material jersey or hoodie. The<br />

blue shirts would be made from<br />

a better material, and girls would<br />

have the option of shorts, skirts,<br />

skirts and trousers. Juniors<br />

would have the option of a polo<br />

shirt.<br />

The blazer, which currently has<br />

to be worn at school assemblies,<br />

would become optional, as would<br />

the school tie. The school would<br />

keep stocks of blazers and ties for<br />

wearing at formal events.<br />

A uniform jacket with school<br />

logo would be introduced.<br />

If the new uniform was<br />

introduced, the current one<br />

would be also be allowed for a<br />

period of time.<br />

Darfield High School<br />

principal Andy England<br />

pays tribute to a popular<br />

teacher Scott Jermyn who<br />

died recently aged 46.<br />

Scott Jermyn was a gentle<br />

giant of a man who loved teaching.<br />

Last month, he passed away<br />

peacefully following a long<br />

battle with cancer. He was supported<br />

by his wife, Angela Jermyn,<br />

who was a Darfield High<br />

School teacher until the start of<br />

this year, and family members.<br />

Before coming to the school<br />

in 2011, Scott taught at South<br />

Hornby School, Seddon School,<br />

Paihia School, Paremata School,<br />

and Kirwee Model School.<br />

During his time at Darfield, he<br />

held a range of roles, including<br />

year 7 dean, numeracy co-ordinator,<br />

staff trustee and specialist<br />

classroom teacher. He was also<br />

an avid rugby and cricket coach,<br />

involved in the quad games,<br />

NEWS 13<br />

GENTLE<br />

GIANT:<br />

Teacher<br />

Scott<br />

Jermyn<br />

was<br />

popular<br />

with<br />

students<br />

and fellow<br />

teachers<br />

alike.<br />

ShowQuest, and taking students<br />

to various competitions and<br />

school camps. He introduced the<br />

pirate game at year 8 (a sports<br />

game which has since become<br />

an institution for year 8 pupils<br />

at the school). Scott cared for his<br />

colleagues and supported them<br />

in and out of school.<br />

Mostly though, to us, Scott<br />

was an inspiring and caring<br />

classroom teacher. He had a<br />

manner and way about him that<br />

everyone loved. Children loved<br />

his dry sense of humour, calling<br />

his class his “little darlings”<br />

and writing “Mr Jermyn is awesome”<br />

at the top of some teachers’<br />

whiteboards. This was out<br />

of reach of their shorter frames.<br />

We will all miss him.<br />

Many of our staff, and<br />

many students are feeling<br />

this loss keenly. But our staff<br />

and students are wonderful<br />

people who are supportive and<br />

understanding.<br />

Ford fans put their ponies on show<br />

• By John Cosgrove<br />

THEY CAME from Australia,<br />

England, Germany and, of<br />

course, Detroit, and who could<br />

not see the passion in the eyes<br />

and voices of the hundreds of<br />

owners and enthusiasts who<br />

turned up for the Ford day at the<br />

Waimak Classic Cars museum in<br />

Leithfield on Sunday.<br />

In spite of the threatening rain<br />

which eventually forced many<br />

to head home early, nearly 200<br />

Fords of all ages and descriptions<br />

turned out to show off<br />

their lines, curves, engines and<br />

pedigrees.<br />

There were Falcons old and<br />

new, Fairlanes, Mustangs,<br />

Capris, Thunderbirds, Cortinas,<br />

Escorts, Zephyrs and more.<br />

Standing beside his immaculate-66<br />

Mustang coupe, Rick<br />

Paulsen, of Prebbleton, said he<br />

had been a Ford fan all his life,<br />

owning many over the years,<br />

from Escorts to Mustangs.<br />

“I’ve been a blue oval man<br />

through and through for all my<br />

life. My dad had Falcons, and the<br />

reason I own a 66 coupe like this<br />

one was because my uncle had<br />

one when I was six-years-old,<br />

and I said one day, I’m going to<br />

own one, and now I do,” Paulsen<br />

said.<br />

Waimak Classic Cars spokesperson<br />

Sally Lane said it was an<br />

honour for them to host the Ford<br />

day.<br />

“We were holding the Ford<br />

event for all the Ford lovers, drivers,<br />

dreamers and owners,<br />

“There was a very good vibe<br />

there and we had the Mustang<br />

club here as well as the hot rod<br />

club turn up and compete for a<br />

wide variety of prizes for best in<br />

show,” she said.<br />

Many Ford fans said they had<br />

been born into Ford families.<br />

Bruce McCormick of Harewood,<br />

said he had followed in<br />

his father’s footsteps and had a<br />

lifelong passion for early Fords.<br />

“My father had 46, 48 sedans,<br />

and I have a 37 Ford V8 and a 37<br />

club ute, I love them,” he said.<br />

A venue for every occasion<br />

In <strong>Selwyn</strong>, we’re fortunate to have<br />

over 30 amazing venues suitable for<br />

hosting family celebrations, community<br />

functions or group events. From<br />

old heritage style halls to modern<br />

community centres, there are plenty of<br />

options.<br />

For places bursting with character<br />

there are a variety of historic halls such<br />

as the beautiful Broadfield Community<br />

Centre – a category two listed hall built<br />

in the 1870s with a kitchen and situated<br />

in a reserve with tennis and netball<br />

courts – or the 1930-built and recently<br />

restored Southbridge Hall which<br />

includes a stage.<br />

For character and modern practicality<br />

there’s a wide range of choices whether<br />

you’re looking for a meeting venue,<br />

sporting event or celebration. These<br />

include the Lakeside Memorial Hall<br />

and Dunsandel Community Centre –<br />

both winners in the 2019 Canterbury<br />

Architecture Awards.<br />

Surrounded by heritage trees, the<br />

Prebbleton Community Cottage is a<br />

great bookable space for community<br />

gatherings, corporate meetings and<br />

small workshops. Originally Ceres<br />

Cottage, it started its life on a farm on<br />

Birchs Road in Lincoln in the late 1800’s.<br />

After the farm land was sold in 2008,<br />

the cottage was moved to Blakes Road<br />

and gifted to the Prebbleton community,<br />

Weedons Community Pavilion<br />

Prebbleton Community Cottage<br />

where it was restored by community<br />

volunteers and reopened in 2014.<br />

Rolleston Community Centre has<br />

a variety of hireable spaces from the<br />

stadium with stage, community lounge<br />

and kitchen to a number of new<br />

meeting spaces large and small. Tucked<br />

away on Maddisons Road off from the<br />

main route to West Melton, sits the<br />

Weedons Community Pavilion. Only a<br />

five minute drive from Rolleston, this<br />

modern hall can host sporting events,<br />

classes, corporate events, workshops and<br />

birthday parties. Many users of the hall<br />

say they love the parking, the outside<br />

toilets and the glass doors that allow for<br />

easy access to the grass area outside.<br />

Glentunnel Community Centre is a<br />

great space for community functions,<br />

school uses and recreational activities<br />

such as dance classes. A large outdoor<br />

area with an exceptional outlook<br />

provides an ideal setting for any<br />

occasion.<br />

Just down from the famous Springfield<br />

donut, the Tawera Memorial Hall is<br />

another ideal location for performances,<br />

club meetings or community classes.<br />

The spaces range from holding 25<br />

people up to 300.<br />

REBUILD: The new Kirwee Tavern will be finished by the end of the year. The<br />

building is to have the same footprint as the original, with the same area for<br />

car parking and the entranceway. The original two-storey building was almost<br />

completely destroyed when a fire broke out in the late hours of Christmas<br />

Eve, 2019. The cause was found to be an electrical fault due to old wiring.<br />

ORGANISERS of the first-ever<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Marathon have been left<br />

appalled at the amount of gear<br />

stolen from the event, including a<br />

portaloo.<br />

The marathon was held last<br />

Sunday with the start and finish<br />

line at the Lincoln Event Centre.<br />

Race director John Moore said<br />

up to $4000 worth of equipment<br />

has been stolen.<br />

It includes four 30-50km speed<br />

signs and four Stop/Go paddles,<br />

as well as numerous KM markers<br />

and cones.<br />

Five event signs were also<br />

taken, along with three exclamation<br />

signs.<br />

But what has shocked organisers<br />

the most is the theft of a grey<br />

Superloo port-a-loo.<br />

“It’s actually quite gutting. It<br />

leaves a real bad taste in your<br />

mouth.<br />

“The event went great and then<br />

to find out the toilets been stolen.<br />

Who steals a portaloo? It’s just<br />

ridiculous,” Moore said.<br />

He said every sign cost about<br />

$100 each and the Stop/Go paddles<br />

cost about the same.<br />

“We’re not quite sure what the<br />

cost of the toilet is yet. It could be<br />

about $4000 worth of gear taken.<br />

“It’s straight-up theft, we’re just<br />

<strong>Selwyn</strong> Marathon<br />

‘gutted’ by theft<br />

gutted really.<br />

“Whether it is a contractor or<br />

something who wants a toilet in<br />

their yard and thinks ‘oh they<br />

won’t miss it’ or think it’s a joke,<br />

but it’s not really a joke.<br />

“To put these events together<br />

costs thousands of dollars . . . and<br />

when you have to turn around<br />

and pay thousands of dollars for<br />

the gear that’s been stolen, it is<br />

ridiculous.”<br />

The theft was not the only<br />

thing organisers have had to deal<br />

with.<br />

They received reports of a<br />

woman in her 50-60s who was<br />

abusing the race marshals.<br />

She later drove at a runner who<br />

managed to duck out of the way<br />

just in time, Moore said.<br />

The woman was driving a<br />

beige Kia vehicle and organisers<br />

have contacted police about the<br />

incident.<br />

“That could have been a real<br />

mess. We were dumbfounded<br />

when we found out about that.<br />

It’s just stupidity.”<br />

Police have been contacted<br />

about the theft and the abuse<br />

incident.<br />

If you have any information<br />

that could assist in locating<br />

the items, contact the race<br />

organisers.<br />

Council supports improved access for all<br />

A new card to improve access is now being used at all Council<br />

facilities.<br />

The Hāpai Access Card is now accepted at all Council facilities,<br />

allowing staff to better support people with disabilities to access<br />

and use the Council’s services.<br />

The scheme has been in use in Aotearoa New Zealand for 18<br />

months, based on a similar system running in the United Kingdom.<br />

It uses a card that the holder can show a participating organisation.<br />

Icons on the card show what assistance a person may need,<br />

helping the organisation to provide the appropriate support. Staff<br />

have been trained to support card holders.<br />

The icons on each card are unique to the holder and their needs<br />

and provide a discreet way for people to indicate to Council staff<br />

what they need to help them best use the facility and services.<br />

Group Manager Community Services and Facilities Denise Kidd says the cards fit well with the Council’s<br />

commitment to accessibility in its Accessibility Charter.<br />

“Our facilities and our services are for all our residents and anyone who needs them," she says "We<br />

want to make sure that everyone feels welcome and is able to use our services and get the full benefits<br />

of them. The Hapai Access Card is another way that we can be more welcoming and help reduce the<br />

barriers that make it harder for people to use our services.”<br />

It was encouraging to see the way Council staff welcomed the initiative and the Council’s wider<br />

accessibility work, Hapai Access Card Executive Manager Susan Jackson says.<br />

"It has been great to have the opportunity to onboard <strong>Selwyn</strong> District Council’s sites to the Hāpai Access<br />

Card. Two things that impress me; Firstly the willingness of the operations staff to embrace this tool<br />

for improving accessibility, and secondly the commitment of the property and building staff to up the<br />

standard, and to continue to improve accessibility in Council buildings”.<br />

Council approves land rezoning for residential<br />

development in Lincoln<br />

The Council has approved rezoning of 190 hectares of rural land south of Lincoln for residential<br />

development.<br />

The decision follows the independent Commissioner’s recommendation to approve the Private Plan<br />

Change 69 request (PC69), which Rolleston Industrial Developments Ltd lodged with the Council 18<br />

months ago.<br />

The next step in the process is to publicly notify the Council’s decision – which is expected to be on 22<br />

<strong>June</strong>.<br />

“Those who submitted during the public consultations – and the applicants – will have 30 working days<br />

to make an appeal to the Environment Court once the decision is notified,” says Council’s Environmental<br />

and Regulatory Services Group Manager Tim Harris.<br />

If an appeal is received, the Environment Court will hold the hearings and make the final decision.<br />

The Council ran two rounds of public consultation on the private plane change request, and received 255<br />

submissions and seven further submissions. A total of 66 submitters gave evidence at the subsequent<br />

hearings.<br />

“In response to the Council’s and submitters’ concerns a number of changes have been made to the<br />

original request,” Mr Harris says.<br />

These changes include a reduction in the number of possible residential sites, from around 2,000<br />

to around 1,700; more commercial land that can cater for community and educational facilities; and<br />

changes to address traffic volumes.<br />

Since 2020 when the National Policy Statement On Urban Development (NPS-UD) was introduced the<br />

Council has received 16 private plan change requests for rezoning land across the district which, if all<br />

approved, would enable around 10,000 further residential sites across the eastern areas of the district.<br />

Without the NPS-UD the Council would have likely rejected most, if not all, of the private plan change<br />

requests before they had continued to be processed. This is because they wouldn’t have met the<br />

provisions of the Regional Policy Statement.<br />

“We are required to process private plan change requests, such as PC69, as a result of the new national<br />

policy framework,” Mr Harris says.<br />

Boon tops 100th game with two tries<br />

100th appearance. Right: In goal kicking form earlier in<br />

CLUB MAN Nick Boon sure<br />

knew how to bring up his 100th<br />

senior rugby game for Burnham<br />

Dunsandel Irwell combined on<br />

Saturday – scoring two tries in<br />

an upset 38-36 win against top<br />

side Waihora in the division two<br />

competition.<br />

Boon, 36, has been with<br />

Dunsandel for his entire playing<br />

career, starting out as a junior 32<br />

years ago. While at St Andrew’s<br />

College, he played midweek<br />

for the school, returning at the<br />

weekends to play for Dunsandel.<br />

Boon, a loosehead prop or<br />

hooker, is a big part of the<br />

Dunsandel community. He is<br />

in the volunteer fire bridage, a<br />

groundsman for the Dunsandel<br />

Domain, on the rugby club’s<br />

committee, always present<br />

helping at school with country<br />

days and is notably the first<br />

person to put out a helping hand<br />

when someone’s in need.<br />

BDI club president Dan<br />

Turnball said Boon’s dedicated<br />

service to the club never goes<br />

unnoticed.<br />

“He’s such a loyal and strong<br />

member of not just the rugby<br />

club, but the wider community.<br />

“He’s just a pleasure, he<br />

really is.”<br />

Past president Leo Donkers<br />

couldn’t speak more highly of<br />

Boon.<br />

“The vision of our club is to<br />

inspire the community, and he is<br />

the ultimate. He should get every<br />

accolade for doing that because<br />

he is the best person that we<br />

have in our club that shows<br />

those traits.<br />

“Nick makes it really easy for<br />

the community because it’s<br />

never a problem when he’s<br />

asked to do something,” Donkers<br />

said.<br />

Boon said he was stoked with<br />

the milestone achievement.<br />

“It’s pretty exciting actually,”<br />

he said.<br />

“It’s been a long time coming,<br />

and it’s nice to have done it just<br />

with one club as well.”<br />

Saracens pip Prebbleton to make final<br />

• By Tatiana Gibbs<br />

IT WAS heartbreak for<br />

Prebbleton as Saracens stole a<br />

nail-biting victory in Saturday’s<br />

Luisetti Seeds Cup semi-final,<br />

pipping Prebbleton right on<br />

fulltime with a converted try to<br />

steal the match 31-29.<br />

Prebbleton had a steel grip<br />

on making the final, leading<br />

Saracens 29-17 with 10 minutes<br />

to go. But Saracens’ super sub<br />

flanker Nathan Goodwin and<br />

lock Alex Kennedy scored tries<br />

in the last six minutes. First fiveeighths<br />

Ricky Allin kicked both<br />

pressure-mounted conversions to<br />

seal Prebbleton’s fate.<br />

Saracens will host Glenmark<br />

Cheviot in Saturday’s final, a<br />

match-up no-one predicted<br />

with Glenmark Cheviot<br />

entering the playoffs as a wild<br />

card in the eighth spot. They<br />

beat Southern 28-17 in the other<br />

semi.<br />

Prebbleton club president<br />

Jeromy Knowler said the battle<br />

felt all too familiar, having<br />

flashbacks to last year’s quarter<br />

final where Prebbleton beat over<br />

Saracens 17-16 with a penalty<br />

goal on fulltime.<br />

“It’s disappointing but we did<br />

it to them here last time, so we<br />

know how they feel,” he said.<br />

“I thought they were out on<br />

their feet, but they kicked into<br />

another gear.”<br />

Prebbleton’s first five-eighths<br />

Ted Coleman scored the match’s<br />

first points, kicking a penalty<br />

over the post to boast an early<br />

lead 3-0.<br />

But Saracens scored twice in<br />

the opening 10 minutes, thanks<br />

to speedy right wing Lenuel<br />

Hill, followed by a mammoth<br />

29 phase attack which led to left<br />

wing Oliver Bithray scoring out<br />

wide.<br />

Allin’s conversion gave<br />

Saracens a 12-3 lead.<br />

Prebbleton spent the next 20<br />

minutes knocking on Saracens<br />

goal line, but just couldn’t touch<br />

down, throwing marginal passes<br />

out wide and losing the ball.<br />

“That first half we bombed<br />

goodness knows how many tries,<br />

mustering five chances where<br />

SKY SCRAPER: Alex Coulthard gets airborne for Prebbleton.<br />

we could have scored that we<br />

didn’t,” Knowler said.<br />

“And every time they<br />

(Saracens) didn’t even look like<br />

they had a chance, they turned it<br />

into points.”<br />

But in the 30th minute,<br />

Prebbleton’s patience paid off,<br />

scoring the first of two tries to<br />

close out the opening half.<br />

Open side flanker Edward<br />

Sunia scored their first and<br />

centre Cameron Hay dotted<br />

down on halftime. Coleman<br />

successfully converted the<br />

first but in spite of team mates<br />

holding the ball steady on the<br />

tee from howling north-west<br />

winds, his second jab didn’t<br />

make it over.<br />

Prebbleton had their noses<br />

just out in front heading into the<br />

break <strong>15</strong>-12, a margin try-scorer<br />

and co-captain Hay said should<br />

have been larger.<br />

“They were the more clinical<br />

team and we didn’t get enough<br />

points in that first half which<br />

hurt us at the tail end of the<br />

game, and we couldn’t close it<br />

out,” Hay said.<br />

The next 30 minutes saw<br />

Prebbleton’s backs create<br />

magic with tries to Coleman<br />

and second five-eighths Tim<br />

Murgatroyd, which Coleman<br />

converted both. In between,<br />

Saracens centre Toby Ashby<br />

touched down to keep their<br />

chances alive.<br />

With 10 minutes to go and a<br />

29-17 lead, Prebbleton looked<br />

like they were going to secure<br />

a home final. But they couldn’t<br />

get the rub of the green from the<br />

referee’s whistle, which Saracens<br />

capitalised on.<br />

The big one that<br />

didn’t<br />

get away<br />

• By Susan Sandys<br />

RAKAIA RIVER salmon anglers<br />

are revelling in a season they say<br />

is the best in a decade.<br />

“It’s one out of the box so far,”<br />

Simon McMillan of Leeston<br />

(pictured) said.<br />

He is leading the Southbridge<br />

Hotel salmon fishing competition,<br />

having weighed in a 8.95kg fish on<br />

January 6.<br />

Hotel owner/<br />

operator Harry<br />

Singh said it was<br />

the biggest fish<br />

entered in the<br />

competition since<br />

1997. The smallest<br />

so far this season<br />

was 5.65kg, which<br />

would have been<br />

considered a<br />

good-sized fish in<br />

previous seasons.<br />

Harness racing corruption allegations:<br />

Evidence handover decision delayed<br />

• By Chris Barclay<br />

A LEGAL argument to<br />

determine whether the Racing<br />

Integrity Board can access<br />

evidence produced by a police<br />

probe into alleged corruption<br />

and drug use in the harness<br />

racing industry continues to<br />

drag on.<br />

Some Canterbury-based defendants<br />

charged during the<br />

Operation Inca probe led by<br />

the National Organised Crime<br />

Group are seeking to prevent the<br />

transfer of evidence from investigators<br />

to the RIB, the industry<br />

watchdog.<br />

It is possible the High Court<br />

will eventually rule on the<br />

matter, but for now the argument<br />

is confined to the district court<br />

jurisdiction.<br />

Judge Raoul Neave, who is<br />

presiding over charges stemming<br />

from Operation Inca, said<br />

counsel now had until July 29 to<br />

make submissions while the<br />

RIB had until August 26 to<br />

respond.<br />

Neave is expected to consider<br />

the issue again in September.<br />

The RIB want access to the<br />

evidence to determine whether<br />

it can also lay charges. Harness<br />

HIGH STAKES: The Racing Integrity Board’s bid to access police information with a view<br />

to prosecuting harness racing figures already involved in the Operation Inca investigation<br />

is expected to be considered in September. PHOTO: GEORGE HEARD/NZ HERALD<br />

Racing New Zealand is also<br />

seeking to access evidence with<br />

a potential view to taking action<br />

against industry participants.<br />

Currently all defendants<br />

involved in Operation Inca have<br />

interim name suppression, which<br />

was extended by Judge Neave at<br />

their latest appearance.<br />

Operation Inca, a covert<br />

surveillance operation, initially<br />

charged 13 harness racing<br />

figures in 2018 following an<br />

18-month investigation into<br />

race-fixing and the supply of<br />

recreational drugs.<br />

Some charges were dropped<br />

by the Crown in February<br />

and five more individuals,<br />

including drivers and owners,<br />

also had betting-related charges<br />

withdrawn.<br />

Three defendants still face<br />

charges, which are also under<br />

review.<br />

Meanwhile, Woodendbased<br />

harness racing trainer<br />

Cam Jones faces a RIB penalty<br />

hearing on <strong>June</strong> 21 in relation<br />

to the alleged administering of<br />

a substance to Johnny Nevits<br />

on race day at Addington last<br />

December.<br />

Johnny Nevits was one of two<br />

horses injected by suspended<br />

harness racing trainer Jesse<br />

Alford two hours before they<br />

were due to race at Addington in<br />

February last year.<br />

Claim of ‘Nothing Done’<br />

Insulting: ECan Chief<br />

Environment Canterbury says it has<br />

always acknowledged the extent of the<br />

water quality challenge in the region’s<br />

waterways and is working hard on<br />

improvements.<br />

Responding to criticism from<br />

Greenpeace, ECan Chief Executive Dr<br />

Stefanie Rixecker said $60 million in<br />

ratepayer money had been invested<br />

over the last decade in a framework<br />

to improve water quality throughout<br />

Canterbury.<br />

“Limits on the amount of nitrogen<br />

farms can leach have been in place<br />

since 2012,” Dr Rixecker said. “With the<br />

input of our water zone committees and<br />

local communities, these limits have<br />

been tightened further in particular<br />

catchments – for example, a 30 per cent<br />

reduction in nitrogen losses from dairy<br />

farms in <strong>Selwyn</strong> Te Waihora by <strong>2022</strong>,” Dr<br />

Rixecker said.<br />

Farmers were required to work to<br />

industry-agreed good management<br />

practices and to have auditable farm<br />

environment plans. ECan worked closely<br />

with the rural community and carried<br />

out a successful land use consent to farm<br />

campaign to ensure farmers understand<br />

and can implement these requirements.<br />

“As well as regulatory measures, there<br />

are many non-regulatory actions that<br />

farmers are taking to make a difference<br />

to the environment such as stock<br />

management, precision irrigation,<br />

riparian planting, and restoration of<br />

wetlands.<br />

“We often hear that nothing is being<br />

done. This is insulting to the many<br />

people in our communities, farmers and<br />

others, who are working hard to improve<br />

things.”<br />

ECan Science Director Dr Tim Davie<br />

says it was Environment Canterbury<br />

science that recognised the scale of the<br />

problem, which has led to significant<br />

investment from the regional council and<br />

the community to improve the situation.<br />

“There is no simple, quick fix solution.<br />

We have called on a vast range of<br />

scientific expertise to help us navigate the<br />

issue. All this work has been captured in<br />

the Canterbury Land and Water Regional<br />

Plan to which the whole community<br />

has contributed and is continuing to<br />

implement. This is a long-term plan that<br />

is gradually turning a very large ship<br />

around.”<br />

Dr Davie said it was ironic that “the<br />

latest Greenpeace salvo against the<br />

Canterbury community” stems from<br />

a research paper by Dr Joy that relies<br />

heavily on Environment Canterbury<br />

scientific publications for its technical<br />

analysis. “Those Environment<br />

Canterbury publications clearly point to<br />

the scale of the water-quality problem<br />

and the amount of remediation required.”<br />

ECan chair Jenny Hughey said that<br />

over the last three years ECan had<br />

“successfully built on the water quality<br />

improvement platform”.<br />

The council was working with farmers<br />

to help them understand and adhere to<br />

the rules in our own plans as well as the<br />

regulations in the Government’s Essential<br />

Freshwater package, Dr Hughey said.<br />

Farmers who were actively working<br />

to reduce nutrient losses would be<br />

well positioned as we move towards<br />

implementing Te Mana o te Wai through<br />

an integrated plan for Canterbury. This<br />

plan must be notified in 2024.<br />

Land and Water Report<br />

Card Released<br />

Environment Canterbury’s latest<br />

quarterly report has been published,<br />

highlighting progress made on its<br />

six work areas within the land and<br />

water portfolio.<br />

The performance report is<br />

prepared for the council’s regional<br />

and strategic leadership committee<br />

and for the community. It describes<br />

work ECan is doing to meet targets<br />

in its Long-Term Plan 2021-2031<br />

and highlight the “risks and issues”<br />

for the council’s portfolios.<br />

That work is guided by the<br />

Canterbury Water Management<br />

Strategy (CWMS), a shared regional<br />

commitment between Papatipu<br />

Rūnanga, territorial authorities,<br />

zone committees, stakeholder<br />

organisations and the community.<br />

ECan says one of its major aims is<br />

improving freshwater outcomes by<br />

partnering with Ngāi Tahu and the<br />

community to implement national<br />

direction.<br />

“We are improving freshwater<br />

outcomes by partnering with<br />

Ngāi Tahu and the community to<br />

implement national direction. We<br />

are also empowering and engaging<br />

communities to deliver actions on<br />

the ground to meet the Canterbury<br />

Water Management Strategy<br />

targets,” an introduction to the<br />

council’s land and water report says.<br />

There is a “stewardship”<br />

component to the work.<br />

“Stewardship of water and land<br />

is a collective responsibility. Our<br />

role will include investing in ways<br />

of supporting, building awareness<br />

and implementing opportunities to<br />

deliver improved water quality and<br />

sustainable land use in Waitaha –<br />

the Canterbury region. We monitor<br />

and review the effectiveness of all<br />

our campaigns and programmes.”<br />

ECan work includes support for<br />

10 water zone committees (largely<br />

based on river catchments) to<br />

deliver on CWMS targets in their<br />

zone. The zone committees –<br />

joint committees of Environment<br />

Canterbury and the local authority<br />

that covers each zone – have<br />

representatives appointed from<br />

across the community.<br />

The Regional Water Management<br />

Committee monitors the<br />

implementation of the CWMS<br />

across the Canterbury region, and<br />

provides advice and regular reports<br />

to Environment Canterbury, Te<br />

Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu and the<br />

Canterbury Mayoral Forum.<br />

ECan is also supporting<br />

support the introduction of the<br />

Government’s Essential Freshwater<br />

package, which aims to improve<br />

freshwater quality throughout the<br />

country.<br />

Freshwater is managed locally<br />

and through national direction<br />

from Government. “We are working<br />

with our partners to review and<br />

amend our regulatory framework<br />

to give effect to the Government’s<br />

Essential Freshwater package, the<br />

Resource Management Act and<br />

the Canterbury Regional Policy<br />

Statement,” the council says.<br />

“As well as implementing our<br />

planning framework and national<br />

direction, we will partner with<br />

Papatipu Rūnanga to increase<br />

community engagement and<br />

awareness of Te Mana o te Wai.”<br />

GARDENING 35<br />

Warm up by getting out in the garden<br />

IT’S GETTING harder to get up<br />

early due to the colder weather.<br />

However, there’s always something<br />

to do in the garden, even in<br />

winter. Many gardeners are motivated<br />

to keep planting in spite of<br />

the colder weather<br />

not only to save on food costs but<br />

also because gardening is regarded<br />

as a productive and satisfying<br />

hobby.<br />

On top of this, gardening is a<br />

great way to keep warm, healthy<br />

and inspired.<br />

For <strong>June</strong>, garden maintenance<br />

includes enriching your soil, turn<br />

it over and add compost and<br />

fertilisers such as sheep pellets.<br />

It’s also time to let go of your<br />

leftover summer plants and finish<br />

raking up the autumn leaves.<br />

Leaves make good mulch so make<br />

use of them.<br />

It’s also time to prepare your<br />

soil for strawberry and garlic<br />

planting.<br />

In the edible garden, brassicas<br />

such as broccoli, cabbage and<br />

cauliflower can handle the colder<br />

weather and can be planted generally<br />

in milder winter regions.<br />

Buying seedlings will give you<br />

a good head start. Plant broad<br />

beans and peas if you live in areas<br />

without frost.<br />

For the really cold areas, you<br />

may want to consider planting<br />

silverbeet, kale, spinach, garlic,<br />

strawberries and onion, using<br />

mulch for much needed insulation.<br />

Organic mulches, 5-8cm<br />

thick, may include pea straw and<br />

oak leaves.<br />

If you’re planning to give one of<br />

your garden beds a rest, you may<br />

want to consider planting cover<br />

plants like blue lupin and mustard.<br />

Cover plants help your soil<br />

regain nitrogen content.<br />

Closer to spring, you can turn<br />

over the soil planted with these<br />

cover crops and use these crops<br />

as live compost by burying them<br />

in the soil. This will improve your<br />

soil structure.<br />

Stagger planting – lettuce,<br />

onions, peas, radish – every 10-14<br />

days.<br />

When days get shorter and<br />

colder, your plants need all the<br />

help they can get. Seaweed plant<br />

tonic will give your garden its<br />

much needed boost. It promotes<br />

strong root growth, helps the<br />

plants handle the temperature<br />

shock and most importantly, it<br />

helps bolster the plants’ cell walls<br />

giving it stronger resistance to<br />

diseases.<br />

Ideally, garlic is planted in<br />

colder months (from <strong>June</strong>-July)<br />

because it needs the cold for the<br />

bulb to properly develop.<br />

If you’re planting strawberry<br />

seedlings this <strong>June</strong>, note that they<br />

will be most productive in their<br />

first year.<br />

In the flower garden smiling<br />

pansy flowers, geranium, colourful<br />

polyanthus are hardy annuals.<br />

Geraniums are beautiful, coldtolerant<br />

plants that keep pests at<br />

MAINTENANCE:<br />

Turn over<br />

topsoil and<br />

enrich it with<br />

fertiliser. Get<br />

your children<br />

interested in<br />

helping.<br />

bay. They can be great companions<br />

with many beautiful flowering<br />

plants like roses, lobelia and<br />

vegetables like cabbages.<br />

You may also want to consider<br />

planting more flowers in hanging<br />

baskets, containers and pots. This<br />

way, you can move your flower<br />

pots around your patio/deck for<br />

more sunlight or protection.<br />

If you are thinking of adding<br />

herbs to your winter garden, the<br />

cold-hardy ones are catnip, parsley,<br />

mint and thyme. Chives will<br />

move to dormant state but they<br />

will be back in spring.<br />

Winter is still a good time to<br />

plant all natives as they can thrive<br />

in New Zealand’s unique climate.<br />

Native grasses, trees and shrubs<br />

appreciate the colder weather.<br />

Festuca actae is an native tussock<br />

that has a striking silvery bluish<br />

green colour. They are great for<br />

mass planting to create a stunning<br />

landscape.<br />

Fuel-friendly, funky C3 Aircross<br />

SMALL CARS are undergoing a<br />

resurgence, well that’s no surprise,<br />

new car buyers today are looking<br />

to get maximum value from their<br />

costly litre of fuel.<br />

Cars with small, thrifty engines<br />

are a popular choice for those<br />

who are not quite ready to join<br />

the electric revolution. But the<br />

question is how small is practical?<br />

Citroen’s C3 is one car that will<br />

tempt with its 1.2-litre three-cylinder<br />

engine returning a combined<br />

cycle fuel usage average of<br />

5.8-litres per 100km. But at just<br />

4m in length it may be a little too<br />

compact for some buyers. Sure,<br />

French car designers know how<br />

to create space from nowhere,<br />

and the C3 will easily take care of<br />

its occupants.<br />

However, if you are looking for<br />

a small car and something French<br />

then the C3 offers another alternative<br />

– the Aircross.<br />

The C3 Aircross is labelled by<br />

Citroen as a sport utility vehicle.<br />

I’m not entirely convinced, I see<br />

it more as a crossover vehicle,<br />

something in-between. However,<br />

it does sit on the C3 platform and<br />

utilises the same driveline, and as<br />

a car it is larger in every dimension,<br />

thereby providing more<br />

interior room, and it must be said<br />

the Aircross is spacious considering<br />

just 16cm is added to length.<br />

If you think there would be<br />

AVANT-GARDE: Spacious interior and unusual trim detailing.<br />

disadvantages, forget that, the<br />

Aircross is a charmer, it is comfortable,<br />

affordable at $38,990 and<br />

has the benefit of a 7.3l/100km<br />

combined cycle average, and with<br />

its 45-litre tank it doesn’t seem<br />

scary when time comes to fill it,<br />

however, bear in mind you do<br />

need premium fuel.<br />

Interestingly, the Aircross<br />

doesn’t get the benefit of the<br />

Government’s low carbon<br />

emission rebate, the C3 does,<br />

but the Aircross is just over the<br />

threshold.<br />

The new C3 Aircross is just<br />

that, totally new. However, the<br />

mechanicals, as mentioned, are<br />

those which are used elsewhere<br />

throughout the Citroen/Peugeot<br />

line-ups. And to cope with the<br />

extra height against the C3 the<br />

Aircross’ suspension has been<br />

tightened marginally.<br />

Elsewhere, the Aircross is a<br />

cheeky, funky five-door that will<br />

command solid sales. It is built to<br />

the Citroen way of manufacture –<br />

avant-garde, a little unusual, but<br />

with a whole heap of charm. Take<br />

the interior trim materials and<br />

patterns, for example, they are<br />

complex and have many contrasts<br />

with their bold elliptical designs.<br />

The three-pot engine, which<br />

displaces just 1199cc, has been<br />

widely-acclaimed, winning many<br />

awards globally, and deservedly<br />

so, the turbocharged unit<br />

punches well above is weight with<br />

its 81kW and 205Nm power outputs.<br />

Drive is channelled through<br />

a six-speed automatic gearbox,<br />

the only transmission available<br />

in New Zealand, the distributors<br />

wouldn’t have it any other way<br />

either, while manual gearbox cars<br />

are still trendy in Europe, they<br />

don’t sell here.<br />

All that aside, the automatic<br />

works fine, it is robust and does<br />

everything like it should, the<br />

ratios are well structured so that<br />

economy and performance go<br />

hand in hand.<br />

The Aircross will reach<br />

100km/h from a standstill in<br />

10.6sec and will complete a<br />

highway overtake in 7sec (80-<br />

120km/h).<br />

However, the best figures are<br />

those of its economy, it is a mammoth<br />

fuel miser. At 100km/h<br />

it sips fuel instantaneously at<br />

the rate of just 4.8l/100km at<br />

100km/h in sixth gear, the engine<br />

turning over quite relaxed at<br />

2000rpm.<br />

When I took the car back to<br />

the dealership the combined average<br />

was reading just 8l/100km,<br />

which considering the car was<br />

brand new and probably a little<br />

tight in the engine, was a good<br />

result.<br />

That doesn’t mean the engine<br />

isn’t ready to perform, the beauty<br />

of the modern turbocharger is<br />

its ability to provide substantial<br />

power low in the rev band –<br />

5500rpm and just <strong>15</strong>00rpm for<br />

torque – as a result, it responds<br />

• Price – Citroen C3<br />

Aircross, $38,990<br />

• Dimensions – Length,<br />

4160mm; width, 1756mm;<br />

height, 1637mm<br />

• Configuration – Threecylinder,<br />

front-wheeldrive,<br />

1199cc, 81kW,<br />

205Nm, six-speed<br />

automatic<br />

• Performance –<br />

0-100km/h, 10.6sec<br />

• Fuel usage – 7.3l/100km<br />

willingly to throttle pressure.<br />

On the open road, the Aircross<br />

cruises with just a hint of the<br />

harmonics normally associated<br />

with the three-cylinder design.<br />

I’ve made no secret of my desire<br />

for that configuration, and it is<br />

a real gem with its response and<br />

characteristics that are part of the<br />

catalyst promoting tidy handling<br />

manners.<br />

Sitting on quiet-riding Bridgestone<br />

tyres (2<strong>15</strong>/50 x 17in), the<br />

Aircross has controlled grip and<br />

purposeful balance. It steers<br />

delightfully, and even though it<br />

is tall at over 1.6m, the suspension<br />

firming I mentioned earlier<br />

means there is little weight transition,<br />

body balance stays even and<br />

occupants are treated to a ride/<br />

handling balance that you could<br />

expect only from Citroen.<br />

I remember well the air/pneumatic<br />

designs in cars of previous<br />

generations, and I can safely say<br />

that even with far more simplistic<br />

technology today’s ride from any<br />

CITROEN C3<br />

AIRCROSS:<br />

Crossover<br />

model that<br />

will appeal<br />

with its<br />

economy.<br />

Citroen model easily replicates<br />

that fabulous float-on-air feeling.<br />

I took the test car on a run<br />

through to Little River, I didn’t<br />

do as many kilometres as I ordinarily<br />

would in an evaluation<br />

car simply because I didn’t want<br />

to run up unnecessary wear on<br />

a dealer demonstrator. But given<br />

it was most likely to be my only<br />

chance to drive the Aircross I<br />

wanted to glean as much satisfaction<br />

from it as I possibly could<br />

and it performed with dignity,<br />

appeal and with a quiet, subdued<br />

nature.<br />

In terms of specification, the<br />

Aircross wants for nothing, it also<br />

gets a whole heap of kit for safety<br />

alongside comfort and convenience.<br />

I mentioned the interior<br />

layout, while it is complex in the<br />

way it looks, it is intuitive when it<br />

comes to function, finding your<br />

way around the controls doesn’t<br />

need any special attention.<br />

One of the things I liked the<br />

most was the driving position<br />

and comfort from the driver’s<br />

seat, under-thigh support and<br />

softness have been a high priority<br />

manufacturing ingredient.<br />

Citroen has always sold well<br />

in Christchurch. I don’t know<br />

if that has anything to do with<br />

some kind of connection to our<br />

French settlement of Akaroa, but<br />

I will say that when I was driving<br />

on State Highway 75 I saw two<br />

other French cars heading in that<br />

direction. I’m hoping they were<br />

buyers who, like me, enjoy the<br />

driving experience of European<br />

models.<br />

[Edition datE]<br />

What do you have to tell potential<br />

buyers when selling your house?<br />

When you’ve lived in a property for a<br />

while it’s easy to forget some of its quirks.<br />

You might be used to the fact that the<br />

front gate doesn’t shut properly, or that<br />

the bathroom windows need fixing. Any<br />

potential buyers will be able to spot issues<br />

like this when they inspect the property –<br />

and can choose to fix them if they purchase<br />

it. But it’s a lot harder for them to identify<br />

other things you might have forgotten<br />

about, like the fact that you didn’t bother<br />

getting the appropriate consents from the<br />

council when you built the deck 25 years<br />

ago.<br />

You might think the deck is fine, but you<br />

need to front up about the consent issue,<br />

not least because it’s the decent thing to do.<br />

“When you’re selling a property you are<br />

legally obliged to share all the relevant<br />

information about it,” says the Real Estate<br />

Agents Authority (REAA).<br />

“If work has been done on the property<br />

during your ownership, either by you or<br />

someone else, the standard terms of the<br />

sale and purchase agreement require the<br />

seller to warrant that any legally required<br />

permits or consents were obtained. If you<br />

knowingly fail to disclose unconsented<br />

works, you are in breach of contract. This<br />

means there is a risk that the sale could fall<br />

over or that you could run into problems<br />

prior to settlement. Even worse, the buyer<br />

could take you to court for breach of<br />

warranty.”<br />

Your first step should be to discuss the<br />

issue with your licensed real estate agent<br />

and your lawyer, Lampen-Smith says. They<br />

are likely to advise that you are better off to<br />

disclose anything unconsented, or to strike<br />

out the applicable vendor warranties clause<br />

in the sale and purchase agreement.<br />

“Once the real estate agent is aware of the<br />

situation, they are bound by their Code of<br />

Conduct to disclose it to any prospective<br />

buyers. If you tell them about the deck or<br />

any other issues to do with the property,<br />

but ask them not to tell anyone, they are<br />

required to stop working for you.”<br />

Similar disclosure issues can arise over<br />

more sensitive matters. Some sellers worry<br />

about whether or not to tell an agent or<br />

prospective buyers about an issue that<br />

doesn’t relate to the physical state of the<br />

property – such as it being the scene of a<br />

murder, suicide or violent crime.<br />

Here, deciding what to disclose is less<br />

straightforward, Lampen-Smith says.<br />

“The REAA advises agents to take a<br />

cautious approach and to consider each<br />

situation on its facts, while recognising the<br />

individual circumstances.”<br />

The High Court has said that a more<br />

recent event, especially one that might<br />

have gained some notoriety in the local<br />

neighbourhood, may have more bearing on<br />

a prospective buyer’s view of the property<br />

than a historic one. The location of the<br />

event (whether it took place in the grounds<br />

of the property or inside the house) and<br />

whether the property has been lived in since<br />

it happened, as well as the likely reaction<br />

of potential buyers, should also be taken<br />

into account. The death of someone from<br />

natural causes at the property does not<br />

need to be disclosed, as this is considered<br />

an everyday occurrence.<br />

“If you are in this situation as a seller, it’s<br />

best to discuss what to do with your real<br />

estate agent.”<br />

“They cannot tell prospective buyers<br />

without your consent – and if they decide<br />

that a sensitive issue should be disclosed<br />

but you don’t agree, then they must cease<br />

to act for you.”<br />

Whatever the situation, whether it’s<br />

unconsented work or a tragic event, honesty<br />

is the best policy. Talk to your agent about<br />

how the disclosure will be handled. There<br />

is no need to advertise the information<br />

or tell everyone who wanders along to an<br />

open home, but potential buyers who have<br />

indicated an interest in making an offer<br />

must be told.<br />

What build requirements are there?<br />

Explore what a new stage will look like.<br />

Buying in a subdivision<br />

Section availability is mostly in new<br />

housing estates and the district generally<br />

has a number to choose from, especially in<br />

Rolleston and Lincoln.<br />

Factors influencing section choice will be:<br />

the distance from your workplace, ease of<br />

travelling, services available, size and price<br />

of available sections, and where you would<br />

like to live.<br />

Ground conditions may also be a<br />

consideration. In <strong>Selwyn</strong>, the land<br />

is generally good for building with<br />

only a standard 364 foundation often<br />

required. Many people are choosing a<br />

RibRaft foundation as it offers seismic<br />

strengthening and may work out more<br />

economical.<br />

A factor which should be high on your<br />

list should be the covenants a developer has<br />

in place and whether these will present any<br />

issues for you.<br />

Any new housing subdivision is likely<br />

to have covenants stipulating what can<br />

and cannot be constructed, in terms of<br />

minimum and maximum house size on<br />

a given section, and aesthetic features<br />

like the roof pitch, acceptable claddings,<br />

landscaping and what is permitted on view<br />

from the street.<br />

The covenants will be supplied with the<br />

Purchase and Sale Agreement. Read these,<br />

asking your lawyer for advice and checking<br />

with your builder to ensure these can be<br />

met before signing on the dotted line.<br />

Before finalising your house plan<br />

with your builder and building consent<br />

application is lodged with Council, send<br />

this and a landscape plan to the developer<br />

for approval. This will avoid costly changes<br />

or problems down the line. There may<br />

be a charge associated with Developer’s<br />

Approval or a refundable bond may be<br />

incurred. This process is put in place to<br />

protect the overall look and integrity of<br />

the housing estate and ensure any damage<br />

incurred during construction is put right.<br />

Certain covenants may seem annoying<br />

however, they protect the environment you<br />

are buying into and can be accommodated<br />

with good design.<br />

The standard of builds in respective<br />

subdivisions may vary from smaller<br />

economic housing to larger sections and<br />

homes. There may also be variations in<br />

the features in each subdivision such as<br />

the street width, number of children’s play<br />

areas, walkways and beautification.<br />

Where you are purchasing off a plan for<br />

a section in a new stage of a subdivision,<br />

ask questions so you appreciate what the<br />

area will ultimately look like. Doing your<br />

homework will help give you surety that<br />

what is proposed will happen. This includes<br />

when title is due, something which can be<br />

slowed by Council consent requirements or<br />

the weather delaying earthworks.<br />

Closeness to schools, shops and public<br />

transport may also be considerations,<br />

especially if you want your children to have<br />

independence by walk to school, a park<br />

or sporting activities. Consider how each<br />

subdivision might suit your lifestyle.<br />

For great results<br />

and a “hassle-free<br />

experience”<br />

[Edition datE]<br />

Looking for a property – what really counts?<br />

You are in the market for a new<br />

property, scrolling the Internet,<br />

examining properties for sale and<br />

zeroing in on those with potential. They<br />

might be in locations that offer cheaper<br />

land, larger houses, or convenience to<br />

work or school.<br />

You may have visited show homes<br />

and open homes becoming confused,<br />

overwhelmed or swept away with<br />

emotional factors like having<br />

everything new, or extra features such<br />

as three car garaging.<br />

To be happy with your choice, list the<br />

features that you need, considering:<br />

• Family space – Is there room for<br />

the children to play indoors and for<br />

television and entertainment units?<br />

Should this be open plan or separated?<br />

• Kitchen – What needs to be in<br />

your kitchen? How serious are you<br />

about a butler’s pantry? Is it a whim<br />

or something that offers a practical<br />

solution to the way you use your<br />

kitchen?<br />

• Bedroom sizes – What are optimum<br />

sizes? Smaller bedrooms may translate<br />

to slightly lower building costs while<br />

extra space can be useful. When<br />

looking at existing homes, consider<br />

whether the size of each bedroom is<br />

sufficient.<br />

• Garaging – A standard double<br />

garage once two cars are parked there<br />

offers little space for the toys. What<br />

toys do you have and could they live<br />

with the lawnmower in a garden shed,<br />

a cheaper option to three car garaging?<br />

If the budget allows and a larger garage<br />

with workshop is important, make it a<br />

selection priority.<br />

• Size of land – Lifestyle properties<br />

offer space for children, pets, hobbies,<br />

an expansive garden and perhaps a<br />

home-run business but they require<br />

work so are not for everyone and a<br />

compact section might be more sensible<br />

if a tight budget or busy lifestyle.<br />

• Bathrooms – Second and third<br />

bathrooms are great in homes with<br />

teenagers and a wet shower room is<br />

ideal for young children. A bath might<br />

be fashionable though is often not used<br />

and its absence could mean a more<br />

spacious bathroom.<br />

• Laundry – Would a laundry in the<br />

garage do the job?<br />

• Storage – How much storage do<br />

you need? Weigh up what can truly be<br />

stored in the garage once vehicles are<br />

in, a preference in winter. Garages vary<br />

in size so check the size to ensure your<br />

vehicles will fit. Look also at where<br />

else the house offers storage capacity<br />

such as in hall cupboards, a large hot<br />

water cylinder cupboard, wardrobes<br />

(check their width and depth), walkin<br />

robe, attic storage trusses, as well as<br />

the potential for hooks and shelving<br />

in the garage for bikes, tools, garden<br />

equipment and even kayaks.<br />

• Off-street parking – How many<br />

vehicles can be parked on the driveway?<br />

Will this space be sufficient?<br />

• Garden - Is there sufficient space<br />

for your children to play or for<br />

entertaining?<br />

A checklist will allow you to determine<br />

what will suit your needs, the point of<br />

the exercise, saving you time looking at<br />

properties or potential house designs<br />

while assisting you to decide whether<br />

to buy a new or existing home with<br />

both options having advantages and<br />

disadvantages.<br />

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections<br />

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

Create warmth and ambience<br />

with a log burner<br />

It’s a wet miserable day, you’re curled up in a comfy chair with<br />

a good book, the cat’s asleep at your feet, and you’ve got that<br />

warm and cosy feeling, all thanks to your log burner. Radiant and<br />

convection heat keep you warm, while the orange flames create<br />

ambience and give an instant feeling of warmth.<br />

Efficient log burners provide dry heat that can be transferred<br />

throughout the house. Whether inbuilt or freestanding, log burners<br />

are built to warm your surroundings, but wetback models can also<br />

heat your water, while ones with cook tops are fantastic if the power<br />

goes out!<br />

Emma Hounsell, from FiresNThings, advises, “There is a fire for<br />

everyone.” The log burner you choose should be the best fit for your<br />

home, style and budget, and whether you want to specifically heat<br />

a small area or the whole house with heat transfer. Consultations<br />

should consider where the home is located, the home’s size, and the<br />

existing insulation and windows. Emma suggests that one kilowatt<br />

of heat is required for every 10 square metres. Various makes and<br />

models of log burners have a maximum output range of 10–28<br />

kilowatts.<br />

Council consent is needed for a log burner, and Environment<br />

Canterbury determines the zone based on your property’s location.<br />

Clean air models are classed as ULEB (Ultra Low Emission Burners)<br />

or LEB (low emission burners); they are rated based on the grams<br />

of particulate per kilogram emitted and their efficiency. Multifuel<br />

burners are only available for properties over two hectares, including<br />

rural areas. A log burner provider may do a scope of work with a<br />

site inspection for a complete quote to have the burner installed,<br />

including advising if a flue extension is required due to the ridgeline<br />

or pitch of your roof. Depending on the type of burner and flooring,<br />

the burner may be installed on a concrete, tile or pre-slab hearth.<br />

Maintaining your burner ensures<br />

efficiency and longevity<br />

Regular chimney sweeping assists cleaner burning and safety.<br />

Netting or mesh on the cowl can prevent bird nests from creating<br />

chimney fires. Replace any worn or broken internal components,<br />

including bricks, baffles, and air tubes.<br />

Choosing the type of wood to burn is personal preference and<br />

budget. A reputable wood merchant sells dry wood with less than<br />

25% moisture content. A “hot mix” with a good balance of softwood<br />

and hardwood is popular. Fires burn best and are cleaner with the<br />

setting fully open. Rather than dampening down, only add wood<br />

when it has died down. Firewood is a renewable energy source, with<br />

the carbon emitted from burning being less than coal (often used in<br />

the middle of winter to generate electricity).<br />

Log burners are still a popular and efficient choice to heat your<br />

home. There is nothing better than walking into a room warmed by<br />

a log burner and experiencing that “aah” moment.<br />
