Residents sick of disruption

from shipping container site

• By Tina Grumball

A HIGH-PROFILE property

developer is the owner of an

industrial site at the centre of a

prolonged conflict with nearby

residents.

Across the Ōpāwaho

Heathcote River, home-owners

have suffered dust, constant

noise, and the obstruction of

their Port Hills views from the

Woolston site.

“You’re talking

about people’s lives

being disrupted

for a considerable

period of time,”

said Linwood Ward

Yani

Johanson

councillor Yani

Johanson.

“It’s not fair

on the local

community that this kind of

activity is allowed to occur,

unfettered and unabated, in my

view.”

Christchurch property

developer Richard Peebles,

and Peebles Group Ltd, own

the site. Peebles also co-owns

Riverside Market and Little

High Eatery.

The area being developed

is the last 12ha of the overall

industrial area to be completed,

Peebles said.

“Peebles Group Ltd take our

responsibilities very seriously

and have planned mitigation

measures to reduce the impact

on surrounding neighbours.”

BARRIER: Across the Ōpāwaho Heathcote River, the six-high container stacks are

obstructing residents’ views of the Port Hills. Right – before and after views from one

resident’s backyard.

While the construction

on-site has been occurring

for nearly two years, concerns

of shipping container storage

were first raised at the Waikura

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board meeting on

March 16.

In spite of concerns, the

containers were placed on the

site in early July.

“We could hear them

compacting the area down,

which was shaking out houses

and rattling windows and all

sorts of things,” Gould Cres

resident Susan Jones said.

Lower speed limits one step closer

• By Natalie Pham

WOOLSTON residents are one

step closer to having the 50km/h

speed limits of Radley St reduced

to 40km/h.

A six-week consultation from

October 10 will help determine

whether the street will be included

in the city council Interim Speed

Management Plan.

The plan includes both slow

speed neighbourhoods and school

zones programmes.

If the city council approves

the plan, lower speeds will be

implemented in Radley St along

with other neighbourhoods and

schools included in the plan over

the next two years.

City council

transport operations

manager Stephen

Wright said a

final decision will

be made early next

year.

Stephen

Wright

“We’re prioritising

streets and

neighbourhoods

around schools to

make it safer for children to get to

and from school.”

Since 2017, one fatal crash, two

serious, three minor and two noninjuries

crashes have occurred on

Radley St.

A board member of the Waikura

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board said many

school children are reported to

cross the street to go to school.

Last year Woolston resident

Paul McMahon first spoke to the

board about the excessive speeding

at Radley St and surrounding

area.

McMahon said

residents have

raised concerns

since 2016.

“I’m rapt that after

years of asking

the community

Paul

McMahon

has been heard on

this.”

The city council

has been installing

a number of slow speed

neighbourhoods and school zones

throughout the city.

Said Wright: “This is to help

meet the target set out by the

Ministry of Transport to have safe

speeds outside over 40 per cent of

Christchurch schools by June 30,

2024.”

All safe speed school zones will

be completed by December 2027.

Additional neighbourhood

streets will have safe speeds

rolled out over the next 10 years,

depending on funding.

SPEED LIMIT: Woolston

residents have raised

concerns about excessive

speeding at Radley St and

surrounding area since

2016. If the city council

approves the draft Interim

Speed Management Plan

next year, the speed limit

will reduce from 50km/h to

40km/h.

Entrepreneurship Thriving

at Te Aratai College

Our Business Studies has been experiencing

rapid growth, resulting in several successes

in the national Young Enterprise Scheme

competition. Our kura is punching well above

its weight, placing well in the competition and

scooping up exclusive spots on the Young

Enterprise Scheme trips. The Lion Foundation

Young Enterprise Scheme (YES) is an

opportunity for students to unleash their innerentrepreneur

and experience the start-up world

first-hand. YES is an experiential programme

where students set up and run a real business.

This year three of our students have secured

spots on business trips to learn about

entrepreneurship in China, Latin America,

and an immersive two-day “Entrepreneurs in

Action” course in Wellington.

In the past, some of our ākonga have garnered

local and national media attention with

their endeavours. There was the “Popcoin”

enterprise that spotted a gap in the snack

food market – gourmet popcorn. The Year 13

entrepreneurs sold the snacks at markets and

pop-up stalls across Christchurch. Not only did

the company make a profit and have to employ

other students to meet demand, but they were

named winners of the 2019 Canterbury Young

Enterprise product launch.

Another successful endeavour was the Year

13 business team that created a children’s

book, ‘A Trip Around the World’—designed to

promote diversity amongst young readers and

to “say no to racism.” The first print run of the

book flew off the shelves resulting in

a sellout within two weeks. The book

can also be found in several libraries

around Christchurch. Their success

was also picked up in the national

media. Additionally, they were

presented with the excellence award

for customer and market engagement

at the Young Enterprise regional

finals.

This year Te Aratai has 10 teams

from two Year 13 business classes

competing in the Young Enterprise

Scheme, a competition where

students learn key business skills and

compete against schools nationally

by setting up their own businesses.

Two teams have been featured

in local media and have received

positive feedback from the

community, including local MPs.

Launched by five enterprising

Year 13 students, “Cheeky Grill”

combines the best of Indian and

Mexican food to create exceptional

butter chicken burritos and

quesadillas. It started when Azkiya

Mohammed, Ashlyn Reddy, Nitin

Ratui, Dipshay Prasad and Lupe

Mahoni wanted to produce some

soul-warming food. Since March

this year, the students have been

selling at their school sites and the Mt Pleasant

Food Truck Alley. They were amazed by the

success of their “Mindian” dishes. Cheeky Grill

have sold out at the locations they’ve been to,

with the most successful stint at the Food Truck

Alley.

Another successful team to feature in the

news this year is the “pHyzi” team who have

prototyped, produced and sold colourful fizzy

bombs that can be used to wash dishes. Chief

executive Manisha Baines said the group was

inspired to develop the product after seeing

young children becoming frustrated and bored

with household chores. Marketing director

Fabian Kazakos-Gardner said, “We thought

about how we could help and being keen on

science came up with the idea of colourful fizzy

dish tablets that work like bath bombs.”

Kaltan Kazakos-Gardner, our current Deputy-

Head Student, who has taken Business

Studies throughout his senior schooling, was

recently awarded a spot in the Latin American

Business programme that places Year 13

NCEA Business students on a two-day course

in Auckland. This course teaches students

about developing business opportunities in

Latin America. He says, “Business Studies at

Te Aratai College offers a range of amazing

opportunities that teach you real-world skills.

There are also plenty of chances to be a part

of activities and trips where you will meet

amazing people. I was fortunate to be a part

of one of these trips, which led me to meet the

ambassador of Argentina.”

‘People are tired of being woken up’

• From page 1

“Then one morning I woke up

. . . pulled the curtains across

and here’s these containers in

front of me,” Jones said.

No notification was given by

the city council. A spokesperson

said the company was “permitted

to establish on the site without

a resource consent subject

to compliance with certain

standards”.

While residents knew it was

an industrial zone, Jones said no

one had any idea it would become

a shipping container yard.

Another Gould Cres resident,

who preferred not to be named,

said containers were stacked five

or six high at 2.9m each. They

said, at 14.5-17.4m, the stacks

were in breach of the 11m height

restriction on the northern end

of the site, closest to the residential

areas.

A city council memo from

August 30, obtained by Southern

View, suggested a stack of

containers could be defined as

a building, but that could be

legally challenged.

Peebles confirmed the restriction

on part of the site, however

he said “a container temporary

storage facility is not a building

and there is no height restriction

for storage”.

The city council spokesperson

said they were investigating the

issue.

Noise monitoring performed

by the city council on August 23

NOISY: Numerous residents said the workers on the site are operating outside the 7am-

5pm approved hours and causing sleepless nights.

PHOTO: JOHN COSGROVE

found noise limits to be breached

on two Long St properties, giving

the company working 14

days to comply.

Long St resident Melissa Mc-

Cutchan said they operate at all

hours of the day and night. Noise

complaints frequently come

from herself, her husband and

neighbours.

Johanson said: “It’s just been

really concerning to residents

and frustrating because concerns

are being raised, but the development

is progressing.”

McCutchan said it was “actually

mentally taking a toll now

because I dread going on maternity

leave for the fact that they’re

going to be working all-day and

all night . . . because in the home

it’s a constant drone”.

Any time a container was

dropped onto another, the noise

and vibrations caused her to

question if it was an earthquake.

Jones said: “People are sick and

tired of being woken up with the

banging and carrying on around

five in the morning. There is no

end in sight.”

Peebles confirmed there

had been one incident where a

worker had started half an hour

early, but could not give any

more details.

A resident on Long St himself,

Johanson noted there had been

repeated times where they had

been working well before 7am,

waking up the neighbourhood.

“They don’t have any respect

for the impact that they’re having

and it’s not fair.”

The city council spokesperson

said they would be performing

further testing, and had done so

last week but there was no work

going on.

If the Christchurch District

Plan noise rules were not being

complied with, the city council

would consider an escalated

enforcement approach.

In a positive step, a notice of

motion was passed at the most

recent city council meeting,

which noted concerns and

called for a report and advice

into how the district plan could

be changed by introducing

additional controls and public

notification requirements.

Construction on the part of

the site adjacent to residential

properties was due for completion

in October, Peebles said.

However, the facility was

a container yard and the

containers would come and go

and the space would be used for

logistics and container use in the

long-term.

Johanson received an update

from the city council last week

stating they had asked the owner

to comply under the Outline

Development Plan, with the 30m

setback requirements and to

reduce container stack heights

to 11m. Compliance was asked

by September 30, and if it is not

met, further enforcement action

was likely.

Major intersection

improvements for Addington

We’re making the intersection of Lincoln Road,

Barrington Street and Whiteleigh Avenue safer.

To complete the work, the intersection will close to all traffic from 6pm on Friday 30 September

and will reopen to traffic from 6am on Monday 3 October. Detours will be in place –

please allow extra time.

In case of bad weather, work will be postponed to the following weekend, starting from

6pm on Friday 7 October and reopening to traffic from 6am on Monday 10 October.

Addington is still open for business.

Harry happy to be back with horses

• By Natalie Pham

SIX YEARS ago, Harry Priestley

got frustrated and walked

away from his horse riding

programme.

However, the 11-year-old has

marked his second participation

in a dressage event at the

Christchurch equestrian centre

last week.

Harry was among 10 riders

of varying ages and disabilities

taking part in the event

organised by Christchurch

Riding for the Disabled.

Because the event focused on

the rider achieving the goal of

completing the test and getting

marked on the completion, each

participant received a certificate

and a score sheet.

Said CHCHRDA president

Philippa Parker: “We make it as

fun and relaxed as possible.”

All participants have been

attending weekly sessions prior

to the event, with each session

tailoring to their specific needs

and personal goals.

The Christchurch South

Karamata Intermediate pupil

was diagnosed with autism when

he was three.

Said his mother Rachel: “For

Harry and the way that his brain

works, it’s about what Harry

wants and what Harry needs. But

as humans, we need to learn how

to work with other people.”

Harry is enrolled in two

programmes – education and

sport and recreation, where

he gets to learn about horse

riding and challenges himself

with exercises require team

-work.

“Everyone has helped me in all

different ways,” he said.

“I used to get really, really

angry but now I don’t get

angry at all. Well, I’m better at

managing my anger than I used

to.”

GOAL: Harry

Priestley

marked

his second

participation

in a dressage

event at

Christchurch

Riding for the

Disabled last

week.

SUCCESS: Harry was proud when he finally got paired up

with his new horse Zeus.

in dressage programme

The organisation also offers a

therapy programme for riders

who have higher support needs,

ranging from building muscle

strength to improving walking

ability.

Harry began the riding sessions

with New Zealand Riding for

the Disabled at five-years-old.

However, his sessions have been

on and off due to high demands.

Like many riders, he started

with a small pony and worked his

way up. After many years, he is

finally paired with Zeus - a ‘big

and tall’ horse.

When Harry first walked in

with his new horse, Parker said he

looked proud of himself.

“Zeus challenges Harry to

work with it. That horse can

be independent if it wants to,

so Harry has to make sure that

the horse is listening to the

instruction.”

BALANCING ACT: Harry

participated in the dressage

event by Christchurch

Riding for the Disabled last

Tuesday.

A healthier and more

sustainable lifestyle

For Christchurch couple Julienne and Carlos, food

experiences they enjoyed on an overseas holiday some

eight years ago, together with a passion for eating fresh,

healthy whole foods, was the catalyst that got them

started in the health and wellness business.

They identified a gap in the market for a cafe that

would specialise in fresh wholesome juices, smoothies

and smoothie bowls, amazing coffee and other

predominantly plant-based and vegetarian delicious

food – all with the focus on health and wellbeing.

They set about developing a menu and launched the

first Gre3n Superfood & Juice Bar at The Colombo,

Christchurch. From there, their business grew quickly

with two outlets around Christchurch, and one in

Nelson. There were plans to develop an operation that

would be New Zealand-wide, but unfortunately, Covid

19 scuppered those plans.

As Julienne explains: “Like most hospo businesses,

we’ve had a rough ride over the last two years with the

pandemic and we had to close several of our locations

to stay afloat. We are now focused on just two stores,

one at The Colombo and our flagship store at The

Crossing in the central city, and we are super-grateful

to our followers and loyal customer base for supporting

us as we get back on our feet.”

Julienne describes their product as “a great option

for those looking to transition into a healthy lifestyle,

with simple food choices that taste great and are good

for you”. The extensive menu includes superfood

smoothies, bowls, fresh juices, shakes, herbal teas,

barista coffee, plus there is a delicious selection of

cabinet food that includes vegan, vegetarian, keto and

gluten-free choices, with items such as salads, baps,

wraps, and raw sweet treats.

“Our point of difference is ‘what

you see is what you get,’ Julienne

says. “It’s all fresh, no concentrates.

We are dedicated to offering

quality products with health

benefits and we source locally

as much as possible. Our food is

mostly plant-based but we do offer

cheese and eggs, and we use A2

milk for our coffees.”

When employing staff, Julienne

and Carlos like to support youth,

with school and university

students being part of the team.

With the increasing interest

in healthy eating, Julienne and

Carlos are confident what they

are offering at Gre3n is providing

what many people are looking for

as they seek a healthier and more sustainable lifestyle.

Kick into spring with

a plant-based diet

Alison Lambert has been balancing her weekly food budget

by digging into her pantry and experimenting with pulses

and grains, with warming results

Panelle – Sicilian chickpea fritters

Ingredients

230g chickpea flour

3 cups water, room temperature

2 Tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped

1 litre vegetable oil

1 lemon

Sea salt flakes

Freshly cracked black pepper

PHOTOS: SIMON LAMBERT

Directions

Pour the water into a large bowl.

Gradually add the flour, stirring constantly

to remove all lumps.

Pour the mixture into a saucepan, and

cook over medium heat until thick like

polenta or porridge.

Remove from the heat and add salt and

pepper to taste. Add the parsley and stir to

combine.

Have a clean chopping board or something

similar ready.

Pour the mixture immediately on to

the board and spread evenly. Cover with

baking paper and gently roll to a thickness

of 4mm.

Cool the dough for at least 2 hours to

firm up.

Cut the dough into rectangles sized 5cm

x 3cm.

Pour the oil into a deep-sided, heavybased

pan. Heat to 170degC.

Cook two to four panelle at a time – it

is important not to overcrowd the pan.

Fry until golden for 3 minutes then turn

and cook for a further 3 minutes or until

golden and puffy. Remove with a slotted

spoon and drain on kitchen paper.

Continue until all the panelle are all

cooked.

Squeeze over a little lemon juice and

sprinkle sea salt and pepper.

Enjoy them as a tasty snack.

Quinoa crepes

Makes 10

Ingredients

1½ cup quinoa

1½ cups filtered water

1 cup tightly packed greens such as

spinach, silverbeet or kale

2 tsp coconut oil or olive oil

2 spring onions, roughly chopped

½ tsp salt

½ chilli

Coconut oil for cooking

Suggested toppings:

Grated carrot and beets

Tofu or tempeh

Cashew or chickpea hummus

Salad leaves

Sprouts, seeds and nuts

Directions

Begin by generously covering the quinoa

in cold water. Let sit for 12 hours at room

temperature.

Drain the quinoa and rinse.

Place the quinoa, filtered water, greens,

coconut oil, spring onions, salt and chilli

in a blender.

Blend until smooth.

Pour the batter into a non reactive bowl

and let sit at room temperature for at least

6-12 hours. You will notice little bubbles

appearing on the surface. This is perfectly

fine, in fact this is part of the fermentation

process. This stage will help be kind on

your gut.

When ready to cook, place a medium

sized fry pan over moderate heat.

Add a little coconut oil and ladle or

measure about ¼ cup, gently smooth out

the crepe so it is a circle 12-15cm diameter.

Cook for 3 minutes or until you see the

crepe change colour, flip and cook the

other side for 2 minutes more. Remove and

repeat until the crepes are all cooked.

You can eat these with a filling and roll

up and enjoy, you can use as you would

bread and scoop up dips etc. I like to have

many tasty bowls of ingredients laden over

the table and place the crepes around so

you can assemble your own.

Risingholme Community Centre

sticking to their roots with new

brand “Risingholme Learning”

We are pleased to announce that Risingholme

Community Centre is now trading as

Risingholme Learning. The rebrand includes a

rollout of a new logo and a new website.

Our new brand pays homage to the last 75+

years, the present and is a `nod to the future’.

The rebrand highlights Risingholme’s focus on

the importance of lifelong learning.

For over 75 years Risingholme Learning has

operated under the same roof, with the same

goals and values: to promote community spirit

through face-to-face adult education.

Although the centre has officially rebranded

from `Risingholme Community Centre’

to ‘Risingholme Learning’ Director Lynda

Megson, wants to ensure the message is still the

same.

“We’ve been running for over 75 years and

plan to run for another 75+ years” Megson says.

“We are continuing to provide the

community opportunities to gain new skills,

knowledge and experiences by providing a wide

range of exciting courses at different locations

across the city. Every term, we have over 800

enrolments, so the demand for learning new

things is a priority for many” Megson says.

“The Risingholme homestead and park in

Opawa is still our base and so acknowledges

our history. We have kept our green colour

and the ‘R’ of our name to reflect the park and

previous branding and are using one of our

park’s trees to better reflect our mission. Our

own ‘tree of life’ represents the relationships

we nurture with our communities: growth,

learning, connections, enjoyment, and strength,

all held within the maturity of our 75+ years

of operation. We believe our rebrand is a fresh

way of communicating this” Megson says.

With term 4 fast approaching, it’s the perfect

time to check out our new website and see the

amazing variety of courses.

Most of Risingholme Learning courses

start the week of Monday 17 October 2022.

Check individual course starting dates on the

website.

Come learn with us!

Brougham Street and Halswell Road are being

upgraded through the New Zealand Upgrade Programme. These two major

roads will change to improve pedestrian and cyclist safety, support more

transport choices, and provide more reliable travel times.

Halswell Road improvements include:

• Peak hour bus lanes in each direction along Lincoln Road from Whiteleigh Avenue to Curletts Road.

• Relocated and new bus stops, shelters and seats.

• Wide 4.2 metre bus lanes on Lincoln Road between Wrights Road and Curletts Road, providing

more room for cyclists.

• The raised centre median will also improve the safety for cyclists using the Nor’West Arc Cycleway.

• Three extra pedestrian crossing points in the centre median to make it safer and easier to cross the road.

• Widening the footpath along Lincoln Road between Curletts and Wrights roads to 2.3 metres. It currently varies

from 1.3 metres to 1.7 metres wide.

• Domain Terrace – remove the right turn in and out. Torrens Road – remove the right turn out on to Lincoln Road,

but retain the right turn in.

• Removal of on-street parking when the bus lanes are operational between Curletts Road and Wrights Road.

On-street parking can be utilised outside of bus peak hour times.

• Existing parking bays on Lincoln Road between Lindores Street to Twigger Street will be retained on both sides.

Brougham Street improvements include:

• An overbridge at Collins Street and Simeon Street for greater cyclist and pedestrian safety.

• New T2 lanes that will operate in the morning and afternoon/evening when roads are busiest.

• A shared cycle and pedestrian path.

• More protected right turn arrows on all right turns off Brougham Street.

• New traffic lights at the Brougham Street/Montreal Street intersection.

• More plants along the south side of Brougham Street.

• And more!
