Daily plunge ahead

of world ice champs

• By Susan Sandys

TAKING A daily dip in a chest

freezer isn’t most people’s idea of

having fun.

But for Hannah Drury it is all

part of her training as she prepares

for the world ice swimming

championships.

For the last two months the

44-year-old, of Rolleston, has

got into the three-degree water,

bathing for six minutes up to her

neck. She has recently stretched

her acclimatisation goal for the

worlds in Samoëns in France in

January further by immersing her

face as well.

“Because there’s lots of nerve

endings in your face, when your

face gets cold it makes you want

to gasp,” she said.

She said the freezer was turned

on for a couple of hours at a time,

to get the water temperature to

one to three degrees.

Drury said she doesn’t generally

like the cold, and rugged up

in winter to keep warm.

But she does enjoy her new

sporting passion, after trying

it for the first time this year

and qualifying for the world

championships.

District’s

prices

lowest

since May

SELWYN PROPERTY prices

dropped to their lowest level

since May in the latest Real Estate

Institute of New Zealand data.

The median price for houses in

the district was $810,000 for the

month of September, compared to

$829,000 in August. In May, the

median was $805,000, the lowest

level so far this year since a peak

of $895,000 in March following

record price rises in the previous

12 months.

The decline to

$810,000 was in

spite of a rise in the

overall Canterbury

median, up four

per cent on the

month of August,

buoyed by big

increases to the

medians in the

Jen Baird

districts of Timaru and Kaikōura.

Chief executive Jen Baird said

market activity was steady in

September for Canterbury.

“But a feeling of uncertainty

amongst buyers and vendors

lingers, influenced by business

challenges, rising interest rates,

and the economy generally.”

PUN TOTALLY intended

here: Hannah Drury is one

cool lady.

So cool, in fact, she has a

daily routine of getting into

a water-filled chest freezer;

the water being three

degrees.

She’s preparing for

the world ice swimming

championships (see page 1)

in France in January. Like

any top athlete she needs to

train. But the water now

isn’t cold here, so what better

way to get the body used

to what lies ahead than to

improvise. A chest freezer

full of very cold water does

the trick.

• By Nikki Preston

A COUPLE who has managed

to snag their first home at the

young ages of 19 and 21 say even

they are surprised at how quickly

it happened.

Emily Walker, 19, and Bradyn

Taylor, 21, only started saving

for their first home at the start of

this year and were not expecting

to be in a position to have a 10

per cent deposit needed to buy a

house until 2023.

But four weeks ago, a threebedroom

home in Rolleston

caught Walker’s eye while she

was scrolling through a property

website one night.

They did a quick search on

OneRoof to check the property

estimate and when it looked like

it could be within reach, they

quickly arranged a private viewing.

Two days later they submitted

their offer with just two hours to

spare before the deadline closed

and were shocked to hear their

conditional offer of $550,000 had

been accepted. The offer is also

the maximum amount they can

spend in Christchurch to

be eligible for the First Home

Grant.

“It was mental,” Walker said.

Walker, who works on a service

desk for an IT company, and

Taylor, a landscape gardener, had

been looking at suburbs all over

Christchurch and had initially

thought Rolleston was over their

budget.

The 1980s home on Byron St

had been a rental property so

had some minor paint chips,

but Walker didn’t expect the

cosmetic work to cost too much

to fix.

“It’s a bit of an older home. It’s

definitely not the nicest one in

Rolleston, but it’s hopefully going

to look amazing by the time

we are done with it.

“We thought it would be an

amazing opportunity because of

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

how much Rolleston is growing

and I think it’s going to just continue

climbing from there.”

After their conditional offer

was accepted, the couple then

worked with their mortgage

brokers at Loan Market and by

gaining approval for Kāinga

Ora’s First Home Grant and First

Home Loan they were able to

secure their first home with just

a five per cent deposit.

The property went unconditional

two weeks ago and Walker

said she’s still in shock.

“It was incredible. Honestly,

we thought we were not going to

get it because of how hard it has

been for lots of buyers.”

Walker said they saved their

$32,000 contribution by being

really careful with their spending

this year. Their deposit was

further bolstered by the $20,00

in their KiwiSaver accounts and

the First Home Grant.

“We had been saving non-stop

and spending as little money as

possible, but also we wouldn’t be

missing out on things.”

Their only bills were rent, utilities

and groceries so they didn’t

have any major debts other than

a couple of credit cards which

they have now paid off. On the

budget they set themselves, they

were still able to save $600 a

week.

They also got in a flatmate to

help pay the rent on their twobedroom

inner-city apartment

so they could save more money.

“We tried not to spend too

much, but at the same time we

didn’t feel like we were always

trapped by the boundaries of

which we had set ourselves.

“Something that’s also quite

amazing is that we had no financial

help from parents or anyone,

it was just the banks and Kāinga

Ora.”

While moving about 30 minutes

out of the central city would

mean Walker would have to

endure a longer commute on the

Young couple save home deposit in a year

days she went into the office, she

said it was worth it to be paying

off their own mortgage and not

someone else’s.

A lot of people their age

thought home ownership was a

pipe dream, she said, but they

were proof that it is achievable.

She urged first home buyers

to also keep any eye out on what

was for sale as the right property

could pop up when they least

expected it. The Government

increasing the cap on how much

could be spent on properties

and still be eligible for the First

Home Grant had also worked in

their favour.

Loan Market mortgage adviser

Angela Wanoa, who helped

Taylor and Walker, said it is absolutely

achievable for first home

buyers to get in the market now

as long as they have prepared

themselves.

“I seriously think at school

there’s a real missing piece for

young people and as soon as kids

get their first job they should

start contributing as much as

they can into KiwiSaver to start

building your deposit.”

Keeping short-term debts low

– or even better not having them

– and making sure the accounts

stay within their limits will also

help people when they apply to

the bank for their first mortgage,

she said.

Neighbours disagree over proposed

• By Susan Sandys

NEIGHBOURING Prebbleton

residents are divided on

whether to chop their land up

as the pressure goes on from the

district council and developers to

intensify the district.

Prebbleton is about to increase

by another 820 sections after

a successful plan change, and

would almost double in size if

two other plan changes are approved.

Several residents live on one

of the latest chunks of rural land

that could go into housing –

some support development while

others are avidly opposed.

The Plan Change 79 rezoning

application, for 527 sections

on 37ha on Birchs Rd, recently

received 36 submissions.

It comes as the Lincoln Voice

residents’ group continues to

fight Plan Change 69 in the Environment

Court. PC69 would

see 1710 sections on 190ha of

rural land.

Neighbours John and Sue

Sheaf and Tom and Helen Fraser

believe PC79 will not be successful

as the National Policy Statement

for Highly Productive Land

came into effect on Monday.

The PC79 area comprises mostly

class 1 and 2 soils, which have

been given enhanced protection

in the new legislation.

Nevetheless, they fear it will

be approved and they will be

surrounded by fences and dense

housing, up to three stories high,

in spite of the PC79 area being

half a kilometre outside the

Prebbleton town boundary.

Sheaf said while rezoning to

residential would dramatically

increase the value of their home,

no money in the world would

make them want to sell to a

developer.

“That’s a matter of principle

that we are prepared to put our

bank balance against,” he said.

Not only did they not want to

move, they did not want to see

the valuable soils “going underneath

houses and asphalt”.

Sheaf said he and Sue had lived

happily at their 0.6ha property

for six years. They had rebuilt the

interior of their home, cleared

weeds, and planted the area with

natives, an orchard and vegetable

gardens, and had hens for free

range eggs.

The Frasers said they had

world would make John Sheaf want to

leave his lifestyle section on the outskirts of

Prebbleton. Sheaf opposes Plan Change 97.

lived on their 4ha property since

buying it in 1970 as a bare block.

They had built their home, planted

it out, and to this day farmed

prime lambs there. They enjoyed

living in a rural environment

and believed their grandchildren

would one day take it over and

bring up their children there.

“We are the longest-term residents

within the proposed subdivision.

We find it incomprehensible

that someone can apply to

subdivide our land without our

consent,” Tom Fraser said.

“It’s morally wrong, we don’t

want to shift, but it’s also morally

wrong to take highly productive

land and convert it to concrete.”

The Sheafs and Frasers

were among the majority of

submitters who opposed PC79.

Reasons given by submitters

also included pressure on

infrastructure, increase in

traffic, and oversupply of

homes following the other two

Prebbleton plan changes.

GROWING: Work

started this week on

a 25-hectare block

on the south side of

Edward St, Lincoln,

where about 240

residential sections

will go, and next

to it potentially a

retirement home.

PHOTO: BARRY

CLARKE

Among supporting submitters

were the Sheafs’ and Frasers’

neighbours, who live in the PC79

area.

John and Bev Broadway,

Anthony Sutton, and Jason

Rademaker submitted separately,

but outlined the same reasons,

including that building houses

would be a better and more efficient

use of their land, the PC79

area would be a logical extension

to the township and it would be

well-placed to connect with the

new Kakaha Park across the road.

The Broadways also said their

lifestyle block was too small for

a viable farming business. It was

currently used for grazing “a few

sheep and a couple of horses”.

Rademaker also said Kakaha

Park would have hundreds of

car parking spaces and lighting,

which was more suited to the

residential lifestyle the subdivision

would bring.

The PC79 application was

made by Birchs Village Ltd, of

which Ryan Geddes is the sole

director. He lives in Christchurch

and is understood to own

one of the eight blocks of land

which make up the PC79 area.

Geddes did not return calls to

the Selwyn Times.

Meanwhile, the two remaining

plan changes pertaining to

Prebbleton are Plan Change 68,

for 820 sections on Trents Rd,

and Plan Change 72, for 295 sections

on the south side of Trices

Rd and eastern side of Birchs Rd.

PC68 is soon to be operative

after no appeals were received

by the deadline date of Friday

last week, while PC72 is being

appealed in the Environment

Court.

New development plus

retirement home bid

• By Barry Clarke

PRELIMINARY groundwork

is underway on another big

residential housing development

in Lincoln, which may eventually

also see a retirement home next

to it.

About 240 sections are

planned for a 25-hectare site

bordering Edward St back to the

Lincoln Wetlands area, a popular

recreation area for walkers,

joggers and cyclists, and home to

numerous bird species.

Lime Developments owner

Jack Lin said engineering consents

are still being worked

through, but the company

was able to start preliminary

ground work to take advantage

of the spring and early summer

weather.

The subdivision was given

building consent late last year.

It was hoped the titles for the

first stage of 62 sections would be

available by mid next year.

The proximity of the wetlands,

Liffey Springs Reserve and

walking tracks along the

Ararira-LII River would make

the development attractive to

buyers, said Lin.

The longer term plan was for

a retirement home to be built on

land purchased by the company

on the southern side of Edward

St and Ellesmere Rd. There were

discussions with a retirement

home operator.

Fencing with marketing would

soon go up along Ellesmere Rd

where the residential sections

were to be developed, he said.

The subdivision would be

called Brookvale and the rest

home, The Sterling, Lincoln.

‘I’m absolutely loving this’ - ice swimmer

COLD STUFF: Hannah Drury being helped by teammates

after finishing her first 500m ice swim at the nationals in

Alexandra.

• From page 1

Ice swimming is swimming in

water with a temperature of five

degrees or lower, with swimmers

wearing only their togs, cap and

goggles.

Drury said she had not tried

out the sport until competing in

the first-ever national championships

in New Zealand at Alexandra

in July. Having a background

as an open water competitor,

she had been drawn by the challenge

much colder water would

provide.

Her first foray into icy water

was on the way there, where she

stopped for a dip in Lake Tekapo.

She had ended up enjoying the

swimming events themselves,

having focused on the end goal

of completion, rather than the

pain of the cold on her skin,

hands and feet. She had also

been buoyed by the camaraderie

of fellow swimmers and supporters,

who had cheered her on.

“During the swim I was thinking

‘I’m absolutely loving this,’

which was quite a surprise to me,

I didn’t think I would enjoy doing

it,” Drury said.

“Just the feeling when you are

in there, you feel really alive,” she

said.

“It’s not easy, so you feel really

good when you have succeeded

at it.”

The longest she was in the

water for at the nationals was

about eight minutes, for a

500-metre freestyle race. In

France, she will compete in the

100-metre butterfly, and 100-metre

individual medley where she

will complete one length each of

freestyle, backstroke, butterfly

and breast stroke.

For fitness, Drury is training

at Lake Rua, swimming there

twice per week, where the current

water temperature is about

12 degrees. She is also doing pool

swimming three-to-four times

a week.

Prior to the championships,

Drury will travel to England to

see family with husband Alex

and their two sons. She will

then meet up with fellow New

Zealand team members for a

pre-championships training

camp.

Drury said ideally the lake

temperature would be around

four degrees at the champs. But

as the lake was located in a ski

resort with snow all around, it

could easily plummet closer to

the zero mark.

Nevertheless, she was looking

forward to it and could not wait

to compete.

“It’s the chance of a lifetime,”

she said.

Shed fire

deemed not

suspicious

• By Tina Grumball

A SEVERE fire that gutted a shed

where a gang-related shooting

took place has been ruled as nonsuspicious.

The shed, or workshop, caught

fire at 9.50pm on Sunday, October

9. After an investigation, it was

found that old burn piles had

been reignited elsewhere.

Their embers were carried by

strong winds to the Maddisons

Rd address and set the structure

alight.

Four firetrucks and four tankers

attended and it was finally

contained at about half-past midnight.

The site was also in the news in

early July when a man was shot. A

31-year-old Mongols MC affiliate

was arrested and charged with

wounding with intent to cause

grievous bodily harm and unlawful

possession of a firearm.

He pleaded not guilty and will

reappear in Christchurch district

court on December 15.

A neighbour nearby said the

fire was “not a nice wake-up call”.

When asked if the building was

unoccupied, she said she had not

seen any activity for a while and

thought whoever lived there had

moved out.

THREE MORE Chorus street

cabinets are set to become works

of art.

They come out of a call for

designs, which now takes the

number of publicly inspired art

works in the district to seven.

Chorus spokesperson Jo Seddon

said the task of selecting the

winning designs proved to be

very difficult.

“We’ve been really lucky with

the standard of designs that

were submitted and it was very

hard to narrow it down to just

two,” she said.

Sea Avery’s A Native Feast and

Veronica Ek’s The Gang were

the winning designs.

But another also caught the

eye of the judges – Anne Mc-

Donald’s Coloured Pencils.

So they went with all three.

Said Seddon: “In fact we were

so impressed with the standard

of designs, a further mural was

commissioned – one that reflects

support of diversity and inclusion.

Ensuring Safer Water –

Chlorination Upgrades 2022

New Zealand’s drinking water laws have changed.

Under the Water Services Act 2021, councils must chlorinate public

drinking water supplies by 15 November 2022. Selwyn District Council has

started applying for exemptions for its previously unchlorinated supplies

and is expecting feedback on these applications from Taumata Arowai in

early 2023.

If you’re on a water supply that isn’t currently chlorinated, we will be

installing chlorination in order to comply with the law as per the

below timetable.

Spring show returns to full glory

SELWYN SPRING Show

organisers were thrilled with

the huge turnout to their annual

event on Saturday.

About 14,000 turned out to

the show on a stunning sunny

spring day at the Ellesmere A & P

grounds at Leeston.

Show president David Birkett

said he and fellow committee

members could not have been

more pleased with how the show

went as it returned to its full glory

following the pandemic. A scaleddown

150th jubilee show was held

last year after being postponed

from the previous year.

“After a two-year break for

public entry, it was fantastic that

the show was as popular as ever.

It was marvellous to see so many

people,” Birkett said.

“It takes such a huge effort by

volunteers and the community to

put the day on but it is all worth

it when you see the delight on

everyone’s faces.”

Call goes out to join emergency services

BURNHAM ARMY firefighter

Sophie Wardell is on a mission

to inspire more young people to

pursue careers in the emergency

services.

The 21-year-old

is bringing the

Youth Search and

Rescue training

programme to

Canterbury, after

it inspired her own

Sophie

Wardell

army career.

YSAR offers

a three-year

programme to

14-18-year-olds and aims to help

combat an ageing workforce in

the search and rescue and emergency

management sectors.

Launched 14 years ago, until

now the programme has only

been available in Tauranga and

Auckland.

Wardell completed the programme

in Tauranga while she

was at high school, before joining

the army in 2019. Having been in

the army for the past three years

and now settled in Canterbury,

she’s ready to “give back”.

The programme involves 26

weekly classroom-based training

sessions and eight outdoor weekend

exercises a year, in which

students learn a range of skills,

from bushcraft and river crossings,

to first aid and navigation.

In the second year students

to Canterbury, after it inspired her own army career.

complete modules through partner

organisations such as Land-

SAR, Coastguard and AREC,

and during their third and final

year they gain competencies in

managing a full-scale emergency

response.

“It was definitely YSAR that

pushed me towards the army.

I’ve always loved the outdoors

and being in the bush,” said

Wardell.

“It was so helpful during my 16

weeks’ basic training at Waiouru.

When we were out in the middle

of nowhere and it was freezing

cold and everyone was complaining,

I didn’t find it too bad

because I’d been in worse.

“It was funny to watch all

these boys who’d never been in

the bush before struggle with

it, and here’s this girl showing

them how it’s done. I was well

prepared in terms of navigation

and bushcraft skills.”

Wardell said being a firefighter

with the army joins both her

passions together.

“I enjoy being outdoors and

exercising and I like helping

people, so I get the best of both

worlds being an army firefighter.

I would love to help young

people get into the emergency

services and LandSAR.”

YSAR general manager Steve

Campbell said YSAR is focused on

building a robust, diverse future

workforce in search and rescue

and emergency management.

“Research released in 2010

suggested that 67 per cent of all

search and rescue volunteers

were male and over the age of 40.

It was clear that the emergency

response sectors were entering

a period where there was an

increase in the number of

volunteers unsuitable for field

deployment and that this would

continue to a point of crisis from

2020 and beyond unless this was

addressed at a strategic level.”

Helping grow the country


THE QUESTION being raised

is should the Selwyn ratepayers

contribute to the costs of the new

stadium in Christchurch, which

the budget has already been

blown out of all proportion. The

answer is categorically no.

It is no fault of the Selwyn

ratepayers the Christchurch

City Council could not get its

act together in a timely manner,

hence the enormous blowout on

its original budget.

Now it has the gall to come

cap-in-hand asking for a

financial commitment from

other councils. It is hoped that

when the time comes the Selwyn

council has enough backbone

to say no, given the ratepayers

of Selwyn are already heading

for an increase of six per cent in

the next few years on top of an

already exorbitant rates bill.

However, there is another

option available should the

need arise. In your rates bill you

will note there is a Canterbury

Museum levy of $35, so looking

outside the box let’s drop this

levy to $15 and the remaining

$20 be earmarked for the

stadium at no extra cost to the

ratepayers of Selywn. Simple.

-Trevor Longmuir

Rolleston

We agree with contributing to

the Christchurch stadium. We

will use it and take the grand

kids.

Many people travel into

Christchurch daily, it’s not

as though we don’t utilise

Christchurch infrastructure.

It is a Canterbury asset. The

Crusaders are Canterbury, for

example.

The fact it was ever allowed

to so incompetently escalate

out of control in the first place,

though, still aggravates

us.

-Rob and Pete Davies

Tai Tapu

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

I do not believe any residents,

whether it be from Selwyn or

any other region, should be held

to ransom for the blowout of the

stadium.

Times are tough for a lot

of people. The cost of living

is continuing to increase and

increasing the rates by six per

cent annually will definitely add

more unnecessary pressure on

residents.

A stadium for sports events

and concerts is considered a

luxury for most, not a necessity.

Having just, or still trying to

recover from the impact of

Covid, many are under financial

pressure. Inflation is at an all

time high, well over seven per

cent, and guaranteed that not

many received a pay increase in

line with inflation.

-Michael Romkes

Lincoln

With only 29,000 rateable

properties and the fact Selwyn

ratepayers will have a rates

increase, I say no to helping

fund the remainder of stadium

costs. Corporates that

benefit should definitely

contribute.

-S Woodham

Te Taumutu

relationship

There was an article in the

Selwyn Times regarding the

signing of a formal relationship

between the Selwyn District

Council and Te Taumutu

Rūnanga.

The article has blindsided

many people. How many

residents of Selwyn even know

about this relationship and what

it is all about?

Surely before anything is

signed the people of Selwyn

have the right to know what

the agreement is all about.

An article, published with no

explanation and an agreement

with no discussion with our

people, is very undemocratic.

The wording “the role of mana

whenua as a treaty partner of

the Crown” is obviously what

our council believe in and is

following a Government

policy.

The purpose of local

government (from the

Selwyn website) states very

clearly: democracy and local

accountability.

So the council made a

decision, but where does the

democracy come in or the local

accountability?

Fortunately,

it is not often

Chamberlain’s ton steers the way again

HARRY Chamberlain’s second

consecutive match-winning

century on Saturday has

given him and his Leeston-

Southbridge team a dream

start to the new country cricket

season.

In a Canterbury Country premier

one day competition clash

of the titans at Darfield Domain,

Chamberlain’s innings of 101 not

out, off just 83 balls, steered his

team to a tense two-wicket win

over rivals Darfield.

There were also victories for

Weedons, Cheviot, and Sefton

in round two in what is shaping

up to be a quality, hard-fought

season.

Leeston-Southbridge won the

toss and elected to bowl first – a

decision they were soon ruing

when Canterbury representatives

Zak Foulkes (89 off 108) and

Henry Shipley (37 off 40) were

cruising against the balanced,

disciplined bowling unit.

Darfield finished their 45 overs

on 211/7, confident that they

could defend the total on their

home patch.

And they soon had Leeston-

Southbridge reeling at 89/6,

before Chamberlain, hot off

an unbeaten century the week

before, teamed up with Dougald

Munro (30 off 37) for an ultimately

match-winning 99-run

seventh-wicket partnership.

IN FORM: Harry Chamberlain in a Leeston-Southbridge

win against Darfield earlier this year.

There were still some tense

moments before the winning

runs were knocked off in the

40th over, however, with just two

wickets to spare.

Sefton secured their second

big win in as many matches with

a 93-run win over Peninsula-

Harbour in spite of their top

order failing to fire.

Batting first, at 49/4, it was

seasoned campaigner Matt

Laffey who came to the rescue,

caressing 85 runs off 113 balls to

help lift Sefton to 217. Akhil Pant

and David Neal claimed three

wickets apiece.

Micah Campbell was

destroyer-in-chief for Sefton,

taking the new ball and knocking

off the combined side’s top

order. Campbell finished with

match-best figures of 4/15, as the

competition newcomers struggled

with the bat for the second

week in a row, falling to be all

out in the 30th over for 124.

At Southbrook Park, on a

deceptively dicy-looking pitch,

Cheviot elected to bowl first

against the combined home side

representing Oxford-Rangiora-

Southbrook.

It was only the typicallydogged

innings of opener Calvin

Scott who showed any resistance

against the Magpies attack, with

Scott carrying his bat for an

unbeaten 42 off 99 balls.

No other batsman was able to

hang around with him and they

were rolled for just 103 in 38.3

overs, with the three Fitzpatrick

brothers, Tom, Johnny and

Harry, sharing seven wickets

between them.

Cheviot opener Ryan Ellis

quickly showed how few

demons there were in the newlyrefurbished

’Brook pitch by

smashing an unbeaten 61 off just

33 balls to complete the ninewicket

thrashing in just 13 overs.

Ohoka suffered another

heavy loss, this time a sevenwicket

defeat to Weedons who

rolled them for 111 before

Blake Coburn almost singlehandedly

knocked off the runs

by smashing 72 off just 52 balls,

including four sixes.

SPORT 21

WINNER: Corban Farnley preparing to launch his jetski into the water and competing at Lake Havasu in Arizona at the world championships, where he

won the Pro Am Ski Lite class.

Teen jetski champ follows in dad’s footsteps

• By Susan Sandys

RACING ON a jetski is

something Corban Farnley, of

West Melton, has been doing

since the age of 10.

It is also something the

17-year-old is very good at,

proving that last week as he

arrived home from America with

a trophy for winning the Pro Am

Ski Lite class at the International

Jet Sports Boating Association

annual world finals.

Competitors from 34 nations

competed for a number of

world titles at the 42nd annual

championships, held at Lake

Havasu, Arizona.

Farnley said there was no

secret to his success, it was just a

case of practice makes perfect.

“Practice is the best way to

get better, just keep riding, keep

riding,” he said.

He is following in the footsteps

of dad Chris, a former national

champion who owns jetski

shops in Christchurch and

Auckland. The pair are regulars

on Christchurch’s Lake Roto

Kohatu, where they get out and

ride together.

Farnley is also a national

champ, and is not new to world

titles either, having won three at

Lake Havasu three years ago, in

amateur and kids’ classes.

He said his goal was to move

up to open classes at the world

champs next year, where the

speeds of jetskis reach about

125kmh, compared to about

80kmh in the lite class.

He said he had been grateful

to compete at the world

championships this year, after

not initially expecting to make

it there.

He has recently started

a building apprenticeship

at Rolleston’s Clark Bros

Construction, which paid for his

flights, but his passport expired

during the pandemic.

Mum Melissa Farnley recalled

the whirlwind of getting ready

to go once the decision was

made.

“He phoned me and said ‘Mum

do you think you could get me

a passport, because my boss (at

Clark Bros) has sponsored me

to the worlds’. That’s how quick

it was, there was no full-on

training like there usually is,”

Melissa said.

She applied for an urgent

passport, which arrived just in

time for him to make a New

Zealand team members’

flight.

“We got it on the Friday, and

the Sunday morning he was on

the plane. It was full bore.”

Lincoln Envirotown’s

Annual Clothes Swap

This popular event will take place

on the evening of Thursday 17th

November at the Lincoln Event

Centre.

This event was hugely successful

last year and large numbers of people

and clothes are expected this year.

People are encouraged to bring their

clothing items (those that we all have,

unused in our cupboards) and drop

them off at designated drop off points

in Lincoln and Rolleston. The times

and locations of these can be found

on Humanitix (Lincoln Clothes Swap)

or Lincoln Envirotown’s Facebook or

website. Those who do these early drop

offs will be given an “Early Bird” ticket

which entitles them and one other, to

early entry on the evening.

Textiles are a major contributing

element to landfill and the longer that we

are able to keep them in circulation the

better. It is a means of helping reduce the

negative impacts of the fashion industry

on our environment.

There is no payment for entry or for

clothes. The event provides a chance to

enjoy changing one’s wardrobe, as well as

keeping resources circulating.

Lincoln Envirotown looks forward to

welcoming everyone and hopes that the

normal busy evening will be enjoyed by

all.

Community recycling days coming up

Community recycling drop-off days are about to be held in Malvern

2022 triennial

election results

Three new Councillors have been elected to join returning Mayor Sam Broughton

and seven returning Councillors.

The new Council has been confirmed following the release of the final results for

the 2022 Selwyn District Council elections.

Mr Broughton says he’s excited about the opportunity to continue leading on

behalf of the district, and welcomed the three new councillors.

“It’s so encouraging to be supported by our community. The result is an

endorsement of our Council's vision for Selwyn and the hard work we have put

in to get us to where we are today. There is still much to be done and I’m looking

forward to the opportunities and challenges the next three years will bring.

“It’s also really exciting for the new Councillors joining the team. Well done

Lydia Gliddon, Elizabeth Mundt and Phil Dean. We also owe a big thank you to

Councillors Jenny Gallagher, Mark Alexander, Murray Lemon and Geoff Bland for

all their work on the Council over the last three years.”

SWELL expo hitting the airways on Plains FM

Topics as diverse as brain health, starting your own business for those aged 50+, and the pros and

cons of moving into a retirement village will be covered on this year’s SWELL on air programme on

Plains FM 96.9.

The radio show is part of the SWELL series running from 9–23 October. "The radio programme was

developed last year, as the expo was unable to run, and was such a success we had to do it again,"

Community and Economic Development Advisor Kirstin Dingwall-Okoye says.

This year’s programme has been developed by Robyn Johnston of Transition Navigators with Plains

FM, and includes interviews with a wide range of people supporting older people to live well

in Selwyn.

Episodes will run at 11am on Plains FM, this Wednesday to Saturday 22 October. The programmes

will be available through Spotify and Apple podcasts, once they have aired. The series has been

curated from presentations held during last week’s SWELL expo speaker series.

Dingwall-Okoye says "SWELL is all about celebrating wellbeing and inclusion for older

people, particularly those living or thinking about living in Selwyn district. There are now large

communities of older people in Selwyn and we’re keen to make people aware of organisations,

groups and information that will support them to live well here.”

For more SWELL events visit selwyn.govt.nz/swell.

Labour Day Hours

Council facilities will be closed on Monday 24 October. This includes Rolleston offices,

Selwyn Libraries and Service Centres, Council-managed community centres and the

Selwyn Sports Centre.

The Selwyn Aquatic Centre is open 8am–8pm.

Pines Resource Recovery Park will be open normal business hours 9am–4.30pm.

Rubbish and recycling collections will take place as normal.

Notices

Water race and land drainage maintenance

Land drainage

All property owners who have a watercourse

running through or adjacent to their property

are reminded they are responsible for the

maintenance of these watercourses, including

ensuring there are no obstructions which could

affect the flow of water. Planting or allowing

trees/vegetation within the watercourse is also

prohibited. If you wish to plant the banks of the

watercourse please consult with the Council.

We will provide further information on this

procedure. Please also ensure if you are weed

spraying that this only occurs in the dry base of a

watercourse, or the top of the bank. Spraying on

the sides of the banks can cause instability and

lead to the banks slumping.

Meetings

Public Forums: Council, Community Board and local committee meetings are open to the public. Time is

available at the start of meetings for people to speak on matters of concern. Please notify Therese Davel or

Bernadette Ryan if you wish to speak at the Council meeting at least five days before the meeting.

Township, Hall and Reserve Committees: To list or make changes to meeting details, email

meeting.changes@selwyn.govt.nz or phone 0800 SELWYN (735996) by 9am Wednesday the week

Iconic fun run back from city to surf

IT’S BACK TO the future for

Christchurch’s most notable fun

run.

The Les Mills City2Surf in

March will start in the central

city and wind its way to New

Brighton, finishing at Rawhiti

Domain.

It will be 50 years since the

first Les Mills City2Surf, which

has seen hundreds of thousands

of Cantabrians take part over the

decades.

Because of the damage the

February 22, 2011 earthquake

caused to the original route, the

event was switched from starting

at Pioneer Stadium to the finish

at Ferrymead Historic Park.

Star Media regional manager

Steve McCaughan said it was

fantastic the City2Surf was

returning to the central city out

to the coast.

“After all these years it’s great

to be going from city to surf

again,” he said.

Starting at Latimer Square

at 9am, the full 12km route

includes the Otakaro Loop and

Avonside Drive, continuing

along New Brighton Rd and

finishing at the City2Surf village

at Rawhiti Domain.

For those who want to take

part, but find the 12km distance

too long, the shorter, 6km

route starts at 10am at Avon

Park, opposite Porritt Park in

Avonside Drive, also finishing at

Rawhiti Domain.

In the early years, the event

started from Cathedral Square

and finished at New Brighton

beach. After four years it

finished at QEII Park, then in

2012, following the earthquakes,

the finish line changed to the

Ferrymead playing fields.

The event will mark the 50th

year since the inauguration of

the City2Surf in 1974, and it will

be the 48th running of the event.

McCaughan says the organisers

are hoping to see 15,000 people

taking part, making it the

biggest event to date.

The naming sponsor for the

2023 City2Surf is again the

Christchurch Les Mills fitness

club.

Club manager Tevita

Siulangapo, who describes

himself as “a born-and-bred

Christchurch boy” says he has

always viewed the City2Surf

event as an “integral part

of mobilising the people of

Otautahi”.

“So, having the opportunity to

support such an iconic gathering

through Les Mills makes me

incredibly proud,” he said.

While City2Surf is billed

as a fun run, participants can

complete the course by walking,

jogging or even pushing the baby

in a pram, however they wish,

though many do treat it as a

serious running event.

Groups of people can also

enter as a team, and can book a

team site at the finish line. On

reaching the finish, participants

are invited to spend time at the

new City2Surf village, with its

live music, warm-down exercises

and food stalls.

“We’re excited about the

new village and the festive

atmosphere it will create for

everybody so we encourage them

to stick around and enjoy it,”

McCaughan says.

There will also be a prize

pool. Every entry bib will have a

unique number giving everyone

the chance of their number

being drawn to win a prize.

• Entries opened Saturday,

October 15.

Fees: Adults (12+), $35;

children (five to 11), $20.

Both include bus fare to

the starting point and from

the finishing point. Children

under five enter free.

Entries can be purchased

online at the City2Surf

website or from advertised

outlets.

SELWYN RURAL LIFE

First for Water Quality Monitoring

For the first time, people can explore the health of New

Zealand’s monitored lakes on an interactive map.

Everyone can check the results of freshwater monitoring in their

region on the LAWA project’s environmental data website, www.

lawa.org.nz.

LAWA Lake Science Lead Dr Jane Groom said the new LAWA

Lake Quality topic map showed interesting spatial patterns – in

particular the difference in lake condition between our high

elevation lakes that are generally in good health, and lowland

lakes that are in poor condition.

“In our analysis we found 82% of monitored lowland lakes are

in a poor or very poor condition, meaning they are nutrient

enriched with an increased likelihood of algae bloom events.”

The interactive map function has been available for four years

on the LAWA River Quality topic and tens of thousands of people

have used it to better understand the health of our waterways.

Dr Groom was hopeful that having this function now available

for lakes would help more people to connect with these precious

waterbodies.

“Through the interactive map, people can see the state and

trend of a whole range of lake health indicators and click through

to a site page to see monitoring histories for nutrients, algae,

bacteria, and water clarity. It’s a big step forward in making

information about New Zealand’s lakes freely available,” she said.

LAWA River Science Lead Dr Coral Grant said the science

team have also been exploring the state of rivers and streams at a

national level, and how this varies over time and by surrounding

land cover.

“The common theme between degraded lakes and stressed

rivers is that they are found in areas where the land is highly

modified, whether that be urban environments or pasture.

The latest river and lake water quality assessment from Land,

Air, Water Aotearoa (LAWA) shows Canterbury is a “mixed

picture”, Environment Canterbury says.

Regional council Canterbury chair Jenny Hughey said it was

important to reflect on the state of all Canterbury rivers, streams

LAWA’s online interactive map covers 16 areas in New Zealand and reports on river water

quality, lake water quality, groundwater quality, air quality, land cover and estuary health.

and lakes, particularly our iconic braided rivers.

Hughey also noted the recent launch of a new website for one of

our most iconic “lakes” (actually a coastal lagoon), Te Waihora/

Lake Ellesmere.

“The LAWA river water quality national picture summary from

2012 to 2022 shows Canterbury has similar challenges to the rest

of Aotearoa,” she said.

“It’s a mixed picture at a high level showing little change

over the last few years. Clearly though, the more modified the

landscape (with urban being the most modified), the poorer the

water quality.”

Canterbury had been addressing this for several years, mainly

via the Canterbury Water Management Strategy and our

freshwater planning framework,” Hughey said.

Special sounds from VW’s Golf R

IF YOU ARE anything like me

you have probably hankered after

a Volkswagen Golf GTi at some

point in your life.

Well, now is the time to buy,

the eighth-generation GTi hot

hatchback is here and it lives up

to all expectation.

But wait, the GTi has an inhouse

competitor in the form of

Golf R and from $79,990 it is just

$14k more in cost, and supply

lines aren’t too onerous.

The Golf R shares much the

same concept as the GTi, but

it has higher power outputs –

235kW against 180Kw, and it

gets a few extra trick goodies

such as four-wheel-drive and

a torque vectoring system, the

latter allowing the driver to

explore adhesion limits without

wandering off the chosen line.

Under the bonnet sits a 1984cc

turbocharged engine that also

releases 400Nm of torque. What

makes these power figures

even more impressive are the

areas where they are developed,

both are realised consistently

through the rev band, 5600 to

6500rpm for power and 2500

to 5600rpm for torque. Those

figures are the secret of the Golf

R’s performance, it doesn’t need

to be revving hard to perform,

the power spread is broad and

unwavering.

The turbocharged boost

provides a linear flow of power,

a solid surge is delivered right

through the rev band. Of course,

the engine will sing to the red

line, but it doesn’t need to, the

EXCITING:

torque surge will usher in early

acceleration from low revs.

Coupled to the engine is a

direct shift seven-speed gearbox.

Effectively it works much like a

traditional automatic but it can

be felt shifting like a manual

with noticeable changes, they are

smooth, but there is a distinctive

change pattern and between shifts

the exhaust crackles and barks,

that along with shrill wailing

and shrieking up front is a joy to

listen to.

Sequential shift movements

can be made through steering

wheel-mounted paddles, right to

change up, left to change down.

The ratios help keep the engine

excitable, it revs quickly to speed

and has strong power delivery,

there’s little reason to expect any

turbo lag.

Engine sound is constant,

it is rorty along with some

vibrant shrieks and wails, and

with a heavy exhaust throb it is

infectious to listen to, the driver

is constantly reminded that a very

special piece of engineering lies

under the bonnet.

Acceleration is swift. According

to Volkswagen the Golf R will

reach 100km/h from a standstill

in 4.8sec. Throughout the midrange

it will scorch through a

highway overtake (80-120km/h)

in just under 4sec. The Golf R is

deceptively quick, but it is casual

in its delivery and is an easy car

to drive quickly when conditions

allow.

The driver has at his/her

control a set of varying drive

mode settings that mean you

can drive it as quickly or as

casually as you wish. The modes

are activated through a central

display screen – comfort, sport,

race, individual, drift and ‘Special

– Nürburgring.’

Quite obviously I didn’t get

to sample the latter, but I did

alternate between comfort

and sport frequently, and even

in sport mode the ride is far

from harsh, both are perfectly

acceptable when road ripples and

ruts sneak up.

Power is directed to all four

corners through Volkswagen’s

Haldex 4-Motion system, it is

a clever drive system that puts

power to ground decidedly

neutral and balanced. Steering

accuracy is delightful, the Golf

R can be forced into a corner

knowing that the high levels of

grip and extraordinary balance

mean entry speed and exit are

high.

The steering is a delight and

won’t deviate off-line when power

is applied mid-corner. Turn-in is

sharp through low profile 19in

tyres, while grip levels are barely

challenged. Of course, traction

and stability control add into

the equation, but the chassis

is so good it doesn’t rely on

electronic monitoring, the Golf

high class, as are the brakes, huge

ventilated discs front and rear

take care of slowing the Golf R

quickly with strong under-pedal

feel.

True to the concept of its

stablemates, the Golf R is also

quite thrifty, on the run up to

Lake Coleridge Village, my

favourite high country road,

the trip computer was showing

a nine-litre per 100km average

with instantaneous returns of

5.2/100km at a steady 100km/h

(engine speed 1800rpm).

Volkswagen claims an

8.6l/100km combined cycle

average, although I would suspect

you’d have to drive conservatively

to achieve that, and that is not

what the Golf R is all about.

To complement its

performance and handling

character, the Golf R gets a

tasteful sporty interior, black

leather trim with blue strips and

embossed R logos are unusual,

however, I liked it. The layout is

almost minimalistic, the controls

are intuitive and user-friendly,

it’s not overly showy but it does

fit the character of the car, you

certainly know you are sitting in

something very special.

While the Golf GTi and R

conundrum might be raging

in the heads of those buying

hopefuls, there’s also another

equation that should be

considered, the Golf R comes

in two variants. The test car

was the 1st Edition model that

has the drift and special driving

modes that make it track day

ready.

The 1st Edition will also set

you back an extra $6k, which

is over and above the $79,990

(and Government $5170.50

clean car fee), but what it does

serve to prove is that there are

plenty of choices in Volkswagen’s

performance car line-up, and I

haven’t even got to adding the

Tiguan R into that proposition.

It is a sport utility vehicle I am

driving next, and I simply can’t

wait.

As Volkswagen say in its

advertising promotions – ‘it’s an

R thing.’ I can relate to that, in my

mind it certainly is something

rewarding.

Murder of Dobson brother

makes true crime podcast

• By Susan Sandys

THE MURDER of a

man in 1866 who helped

discover Arthur’s Pass

has featured in a new true

crime podcast.

Surveyor George

Dobson was ambushed

near Greymouth by three

members of the notorious

Burgess gang, in a crime

which later became known

as one of the infamous

Maungatapu murders.

The crime features as

episode 15 on the Sinister

Dynasty podcast, which

was released on Sunday.

The podcast was established

this year by three

Greymouth case manager

work colleagues – Andi

Butler and Ayla Odea, who

are the hosts, and Chris Efford,

who is the editor.

Dobson was walking

near Greymouth to

City council head of

Carolyn Robertson said

the image was chosen as

last year’s winner because

“He was a nice young

“The hope is that this

image will inspire people

to find their old photos,”

she said.

Dobson had two years

his brother Arthur,

after whom Arthur’s Pass

was later named, as a surveyor.

Arthur was credited

with discovering the pass

after being tasked with

Waimakariri River basin

and the West Coast.

Keeping cool this summer

With this summer’s temperatures

predicted to be hotter than normal, it is

a good time to think about how to keep

your home cool and comfortable on a hot

day.

Air conditioners are common in many

homes and can be used throughout the

year but are not always energy efficient.

One tip is to use the dehumidifier or

fan functions rather than the cooling

function. There are several other things

you can do to use less energy including

setting the temperature at around 24’C,

cooling just one room at a time – with

the door shut - and avoiding using the air

conditioner’s automatic option as it could

turn on the heat instead of the cold.

There are a huge range of fans available

in the marketplace – small ones for your

desk or larger stand-alone ones. While

fans circulate rather than produce cold

air, they can have an cooling effect.

Ceiling fans should be counter-clockwise

during summer to blow the air directly

downwards on a high speed.

Most of the heat entering your home

will come through the windows so this is a

good place to look at in terms of reducing

the temperatures inside. Like a heat pump,

double glazing can work all year around,

keeping the heat in your home during

winter and out during summer.

Opening windows may sound like

a simple option but if opened on the

opposite sides of your home they can

create a breeze to cool things down. By

adding security latchets these windows

can be left open while you’re out.

Drawing thermal lined curtains and

shutting blinds can also prevent the heat

from coming in through your windows,

particularly in those parts of the house

who receive direct sunlight. Light

coloured window coverings rather than

darker are better at reflecting heat and

light away from your home.

External window awnings, a shade

sail or blinds can also help reduce the

impact of the hotter temperatures during

summer.

Creating shade in your outdoor area

can also help reduce the heat in your

home, particularly deciduous trees which

will also allow light through in the winter

when they lose their leaves.

By thinking ahead, the hot summer

will be cooler when you’re at home so

you can relax and unwind in comfort.

GARDENING

Latest Canterbury news at starnews.co.nz

Raised garden beds are easy to build

A raised garden bed

is the perfect way to

tidy a garden, writes

Stephen Jaquiery

With the threat of frosts

hopefully behind us for another

year, Labour Day weekend is

traditionally when vegetable

gardens are planted out.

A tidy idea for your garden is

to build a raised bed, which can

be done quite cheaply by most

people with a minimum of tools

and building skills.

The material used to contain

your raised garden can be as

varied as ponga logs, demolition

timber, corrugated iron or the

more traditional rough-sawn

timber from your local hardware

supplier.

The key to a successful raised

bed is a way of securing the

framework together so the weight

of the soil does not make the

structure collapse.

For this raised bed I used macrocarpa

timber, 200mm deep and

50mm thick.

The garden is 4.2m long and

2.5m wide.

If you buy timber from a

hardware shop you can usually

save yourself a task by choosing

one that will cut your timber to

length.

Step by step

• Lay your timber sides accurately

BOUNDARIES: How to build a raised garden bed in stages.

on the ground and use a spade

to mark the outside edge of the

garden.

• Chip off any existing grass.

• Using a level as a guide, dig out

the top side of the ground if your

garden is on a sloping site until

the first layer of your garden

bed sides sit square and level.

To check your timber frame is

square measure across the diagonal

from each corner and adjust

until both measurements are the

same.

• Fix the corners. I used coach

screws into predrilled holes in

the timber and countersank the

heads. A simple alternative is to

use right-angled nail plates or to

drive sturdy pegs on the outside

of each corner.

• Once the bottom timber is

secure, drive pegs on the inside

of the garden to nail the second

(and third or fourth if desired )

layer of timber. Again, nail plates

could be used for this.

• Top up your garden with soil,

plant your seedlings and it’s time

for a cup of tea and to plan your

summer salads.

–ODT

Time to get flowering annuals in the ground

OUTDOOR fuchsias,

Californian tree poppy and

willows grown for bark effects

can be pruned now.

Young rooted pieces can be

taken from the outside of violet

plants and the central portion of

old clumps discarded.

Herbaceous perennials, such as

Michaelmas daisies, can still be

increased by taking side growths.

Hardy annuals can be sown

outdoors this month – clarkia,

asters, nasturtiums, calendula

and sweet peas.

Dwarf sweet peas do not need

staking. Little Sweetheart is one

of the smallest, growing to 25cm.

The soil for sweet peas should

be well limed and the ground

worked to a fine crumb. Phosphate

worked into the soil (30g

per sq m) will give the seedlings

a good start and a sturdy root

system.

Lawns that have become patchy

because of grass-grub damage

or the removal of weeds on a

large scale can be brought back

to order now with a dressing of

one part superphosphate and

three parts sulphate of ammonia

mixed and spread at a rate of 30g

per sq m. Apply this mix now

and in early autumn, as growth

restarts after summer. Mossy soil

can be dressed with the same

mixture, with the addition of a

half-part of sulphate of iron to

suppress moss.

Dwarf annuals for the front

of garden beds include phacelia

(blue shades), nemophila (blue),

Linum grandiflorum and

limnanthes (yellow).

gardens, and preparing new ones.

Intelligro has an extensive range of

quality products that will see you

through your growing season.

Refresh and

Rejuvenate

Garden beds will benefit from an

Safety in the garden

Keeping yourself safe in the garden is important, especially at this

time of the year. Legionnaire’s Disease is one of the main risks in the

garden, so protecting yourself is key. Below are some precautions

you can take to reduce the risk of contracting Legionnaires:

• Open bags with a sharp knife – away from the face - in open

spaces, not in enclosed areas like sheds or greenhouses

• Remember to use gloves and masks when handling the mix

• Dampen any dry mix – taking care not to inhale dry, dusty mix

• Store bags out of direct sunlight

• Always wash your hands after gardening, and before eating or

drinking

If you develop any flu-like symptoms after working in the garden

head to your doctor immediately. Make sure you let them know you

have been gardening and need to get tested for Legionnaires.

What build requirements are there?

Explore what a new stage will look like.

Buying in a subdivision

Section availability is mostly in new

housing estates and the district generally

has a number to choose from, especially in

Rolleston and Lincoln.

Factors influencing section choice will be:

the distance from your workplace, ease of

travelling, services available, size and price

of available sections, and where you would

like to live.

Ground conditions may also be a

consideration. In Selwyn, the land

is generally good for building with

only a standard 364 foundation often

required. Many people are choosing a

RibRaft foundation as it offers seismic

strengthening and may work out more

economical.

A factor which should be high on your

list should be the covenants a developer has

in place and whether these will present any

issues for you.

Any new housing subdivision is likely

to have covenants stipulating what can

and cannot be constructed, in terms of

minimum and maximum house size on

a given section, and aesthetic features

like the roof pitch, acceptable claddings,

landscaping and what is permitted on view

from the street.

The covenants will be supplied with the

Purchase and Sale Agreement. Read these,

asking your lawyer for advice and checking

with your builder to ensure these can be

met before signing on the dotted line.

Before finalising your house plan

with your builder and building consent

application is lodged with Council, send

this and a landscape plan to the developer

for approval. This will avoid costly changes

or problems down the line. There may

be a charge associated with Developer’s

Approval or a refundable bond may be

incurred. This process is put in place to

protect the overall look and integrity of

the housing estate and ensure any damage

incurred during construction is put right.

Certain covenants may seem annoying

however, they protect the environment you

are buying into and can be accommodated

with good design.

The standard of builds in respective

subdivisions may vary from smaller

economic housing to larger sections and

homes. There may also be variations in

the features in each subdivision such as

the street width, number of children’s play

areas, walkways and beautification.

Where you are purchasing off a plan for

a section in a new stage of a subdivision,

ask questions so you appreciate what the

area will ultimately look like. Doing your

homework will help give you surety that

what is proposed will happen. This includes

when title is due, something which can be

slowed by Council consent requirements or

the weather delaying earthworks.

Closeness to schools, shops and public

transport may also be considerations,

especially if you want your children to have

independence by walk to school, a park

or sporting activities. Consider how each

subdivision might suit your lifestyle.

Buying a property with trees

enjoyment of their land, which means

that you can’t let your trees become a

problem at their place (and vice versa).

If your neighbours have trees that are

giving you grief, think carefully before

swinging an axe or chainsaw. Legally, you

are entitled to trim any branches or roots

from a tree (or large shrub, or plant) that

encroach on your property unless they

are protected, in which case you may

need resource consent first. However, for

the sake of being a decent human being,

it’s a good idea to talk to the tree’s owners

first. Don’t be tempted to take matters

into your own hands and poison the tree,

or trespass onto a neighbour’s property

to chop parts of it off. One way to resolve

the situation is to seek advice from a

professional arborist. Getting an expert

to prune the tree in a way that doesn’t

destroy it completely will be far cheaper

than engaging a lawyer.

In the worst-case scenario, if you can’t sort

out tree issues with a chat over the fence

or the aid of an arborist, it may be time to

seek help from the Disputes Tribunal or

the District Court. If the trees are causing

a nuisance, such as blocking views and/

or light, and you’re unable to come to an

agreement with the neighbour, you can

apply to the District Court for an order to

get the neighbour to trim or remove the

tree.

For independent advice on buying or

selling property, check out settled.govt.

nz.

Whoever said ‘the best time to plant a tree

was 20 years ago’ obviously never dealt

with overhanging branches, wayward

roots or grumpy neighbours. As anyone

who lives in a leafy area will tell you, trees

can cause no end of bother. Trees can

block views, damage fences and interfere

with power lines. Roots can disrupt pipes,

branches can reduce sunlight availability,

leaves can block gutters and windfall fruit

can attract rodents. It’s a wonder people

ever plant them!

These problems are often caused by wellmeaning

property owners who plant

trees without thinking about how big

they will grow. By the time a tree is wellestablished,

it may be already wreaking

havoc both overhead and underground.

Overhanging branches may present

obvious hassles, but tree roots are usually

out of sight, out of mind until they start

to snaking their way into retaining walls,

foundations or drains (at which point they

become difficult to ignore and expensive

to re-route).

If you own a property, you are allowed

to do whatever you like to your trees,

within the bounds of the law that says

you have the right to the ordinary use and

enjoyment of your land. This is subject

to any protection that may apply to your

trees. If they’re protected (for example,

because they are historic, considered

to be significant or needed to prevent

erosion), you may need to get resource

consent before doing anything to them.

Remember that you can’t unreasonably

interfere with your neighbours’ use and

Boundary lines are indicative only

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections

in the Selwyn District

Faye Homes showcases the

latest trends for new builds

The Te Whariki show home village

in Lincoln provides an opportunity to

discover what’s new in the new home

world by revisiting companies to see the

latest designs and trends.

Faye Homes is no exception with their

Southfield Drive corner property bringing

a new development in kitchens that is,

according to their sales team, popular

overseas, particularly in apartment living.

In the kitchen two matching vertical bifold

doors fold out from recesses in front of

the oven to match up with the cupboard

doors on the left and the pantry doors on

the right.

Other upgrade options that feature

include the skylights and sun tunnels,

ducted heating, schist cladding (to match

the internal schist wall in the hallway) and

the outdoor gas fire.

In the kitchen, stylish Bosch appliances

and black tapware create an impression

while the fridge sits in the pantry with

a third sink available for the after party

clean-up.

The Te Whariki show home also

continues to surprise with a clever setup

in the family bathroom with separate

basin, toilet and shower areas that can be

shut off from each other – imagine how

much easier that would make the morning

rush!

Featuring the impressive outdoor fire, a

large sheltered deck can be accessed from

the lounge and living rooms - and the

kitchen – opening out towards the huge

corner section. The perfect space to create

another room for entertaining and long

summer nights.

A second smaller deck opens from the

master bedroom which also has a walkin-robe

which takes up the entire width

of the room. There are three other double

bedrooms suitable for a range of family

sizes or separate study spaces.

A galley style laundry is spacious with

heaps of storage and opens outdoors

making washing day more convenient. In

the double garage there is a Tesla charging

unit for electric vehicles – a definite plus

these days.

The Faye Homes in Southfield Drive

is well worth a visit and is open from

Wednesdays to Sundays, 12pm until 4pm.
