Aboy with amullet and amission<br />

He may only be small, but six­year­old<br />

Arlo Addison has ahuge heart and a<br />

seriously awesome hairdo.<br />

The youngster from Rangiora has<br />

been growing amullet since March in a<br />

bid to raise much­needed funds for<br />

children’s mental health.<br />

The average cost of akid’s counselling<br />

session is $150, and with his epic<br />

fundraising now over $1600, he is stoked<br />

to be helping at least 10 children feel<br />

better.<br />

If you ask Arlo why he is supporting<br />

Gumboot Friday’s Blonde Mullet<br />

Brigade fundraiser, he will tell you it’s<br />

to make children ‘‘feel happy and<br />

smile’’.<br />

His tips for keeping healthy and happy<br />

are ‘‘eating fruit, playing with friends,<br />

and going fishing’’, but when that’s not<br />

enough he wants to be able to help cheer<br />

others up by raising funds for the<br />

children’s charity.<br />

Parents Aisha and Dave are right<br />

behind Arlo’s mullet mission, and<br />

regularly talk to their four sons about<br />

the importance of being kind to others<br />

and keeping your cup full.<br />

The couple own local business DA<br />

Panel Beating, one of this year’s <strong>North</strong><br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> Business Awards finalists,<br />

and established it afew years ago to<br />

allow Dave to spend more time with his<br />

wife and children.<br />

It has allowed him to coach Arlo’s<br />

rugby team, and be home for dinner with<br />

the family every day after work.<br />

Aisha and Dave are also committed to<br />

the wellbeing of their staff, with akey<br />

focus on family.<br />

The business supported Gumboot<br />

Friday last year raising money from a<br />

childrens’ colouring competition.<br />

Aisha says she is super proud of Arlo<br />

for his commitment to the cause this<br />

year, which has meant regular updates<br />

on social media and plenty of talking<br />

about it to pull in the donations.<br />

It’s paid off too –Arlo is one of the top<br />

four highest fundraisers this year out of<br />

the 54 mullet lovers in the brigade.<br />

If you would like to help Arlo to help<br />

even more children stay happy, check<br />

ECan sticks to First Past the Post voting<br />

By DAVIDHILL,<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

Environment <strong>Canterbury</strong> is sticking<br />

with First Pastthe Post,despite<br />

considerable interest in switching to a<br />

single transferable voting system<br />

(STV).<br />

Councillors voted 11 ­5infavour of<br />

the First Pastthe Post optionfor the<br />

2025 and 2028 local government<br />

elections.<br />

Cr CraigPauling said STV would<br />

lead to ‘‘a greater poolofcandidates’’<br />

across largerwards, which couldlead<br />

to greater diversity of candidates and<br />

encourage more young people to<br />

stand.<br />

Cr John Sunckell said STV did work<br />

across large constituencies, but it<br />

would notservethe threerural wards<br />

­<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>, Mid­<strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

andSouth <strong>Canterbury</strong> ­aswell.<br />

Cr Vicky Southworthsaid she was<br />

‘‘torn’’ between the two options.<br />

Shesaid therewere only three<br />

women out of 16 councillors, and she<br />

wasnot certain STV would lead to any<br />

better outcome.<br />

Forestry left out of Plan Change 7for now<br />

5<br />

By DAVID HILL,<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

New forestry rules have been left out of<br />

the <strong>Canterbury</strong> Land and Water<br />

Regional Plan —for now.<br />

Environment <strong>Canterbury</strong> voted last<br />

week to make Plan Change 7tothe<br />

regional plan operative from September<br />

1, with the exception of plantation<br />

forestry rules, which are subject to High<br />

Court appeals by Rayonier New Zealand<br />

Limited and Port Blakely Limited<br />

(Rayonier).<br />

The High Court hearing has been<br />

adjourned, with anew hearing date to<br />

be scheduled.<br />

Plan Change 7, which was notified in<br />

November 2021, introduces new nitrate<br />

limits and addresses water and<br />

groundwater quality concerns.<br />

It came out of the Waimakariri and<br />

Orari, Temuka, Opihi, Pareora zone<br />

committees’ zone implementation plan<br />

addendums (ZIPA).<br />

Councillors also voted to make Plan<br />

Change 2tothe Waimakariri River<br />

Regional Plan operative.<br />

Regional planning manager Andrew<br />

Parrish said it was the end of along<br />

process which began in 2016.<br />

‘‘This piece of work has changed much<br />

of the provisions in the regional plan<br />

and it has taken in the national<br />

direction and taken in changes from the<br />

zone committees.’’<br />

He said the reductions in nutrient loss<br />

limits had led to some difficult<br />

discussions for the zone committees.<br />

‘‘There were some difficult decisions<br />

for those communities to make<br />

themselves and Icommend those<br />

communities for coming together and<br />

doing that.’’<br />

The Waimakariri ZIPA was delayed in<br />

2016 to allow scientists to better<br />

understand groundwater movements<br />

under the Waimakariri River.<br />

It was subsequently found that it was<br />

possible for nitrate­nitrogen<br />

concentrations to seep into<br />

Christchurch city water supplies over a<br />

long time period.<br />

The notification of the plan changes<br />

was also delayed to November 2021 to<br />

allow council staff to hold discussions<br />

with NgāiTahu to address concerns<br />

around the concept Te Mana oTeWai<br />

(mana of the water) and mahinga kai.<br />

Mr Parrish said acompromise was<br />

reached where the council agreed to<br />

engage with Mana Whenua at the<br />

beginning of the process of reviewing<br />

the new regional policy statement, with<br />

work now under way.<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> councillor Grant<br />

Edge welcomed the final adoption on<br />

the plan changes which would bring<br />

some ‘‘certainty’’.<br />

He was pleased staff were preparing a<br />

strategy to the support the<br />

implementation of the changes and help<br />

the community to understand them.<br />

Cr John Sunckell said the plan<br />

changes placed the region in astrong<br />

position as it faced more challenges<br />

from central government legislation.<br />

‘‘It is going to create long term<br />

challenges for farmers and the<br />

opportunities for farmers in these areas<br />

to develop today and in 10 or 20 years<br />

are going to be different to farmers in<br />

other areas.’’<br />

Deputy chairperson Cr Craig Pauling<br />

said it was important to reflect on the<br />

work over the last seven years by council<br />

staff, and by the Waimakariri and South<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong> communities to develop<br />

these plan changes.<br />

‘‘Councillors can come and go, but<br />

rules remain, and this sets the<br />

framework for how we look after our<br />

environment and our land and water<br />

ways.’’<br />

Fears for the loss<br />

of local voices<br />

By DAVID HILL,<br />

LocalDemocracy Reporter<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong> council leaders<br />

fearlocal voices could be lostinthe<br />

government’s Resource Management<br />

Act reforms.<br />

Hurunui, Waimakariri and<br />

Kaikōura District Council leaders<br />

say the expected move to regional<br />

planningcouldmake it harder for<br />

local people to havetheir say.<br />

The SpatialPlanningBill andthe<br />

Natural and Built EnvironmentBill<br />

passed through thethird reading in<br />

Parliamentlast week andwereset to<br />

becomelaw.<br />

Athird piece of legislation tackling<br />

climatechangeisalso in the<br />

pipeline.<br />

Hurunui Mayor Marie Blacksays<br />

the legislation setout anew planning<br />

regime which aimed to cutdownthe<br />

number of plans councilsare<br />

requiredtoproducebygetting them<br />

to worktogether.<br />

‘‘The issue facing our district is,<br />

althoughthe scope andscale will<br />

reduce the number of plans, it will<br />

also distance communities and<br />

removetheir voice with plans taking<br />

aregionalapproach.’’<br />

Environment Minister David<br />

Parker saysthe new legislation will<br />

makethe process ‘‘faster,cheaper<br />

and better’’.<br />

The newlegislationislikely to take<br />

up to 10 years to come into effect, and<br />

willbeintroduced regionbyregion.<br />

October’sgeneralelection could<br />

leadtofurther changes, if there is a<br />

changeofgovernment.<br />

Among the proposed changesisa<br />

move from districtplans to aregional<br />

In <strong>Canterbury</strong> it wouldmeanone<br />

Funding support for shorebirds<br />

By SHELLEY TOPP<br />

A$9000 grant to the Ashley­Rakahuri<br />

RivercareGroup (ARRG) will support<br />

astudy of shorebird breeding in the<br />

Ashley­Rakahuri River/Saltwater<br />

Creekestuary.<br />

The granthas been made by the<br />

WaimakaririWater Zonecommittee to<br />

support the second yearofaMasterate<br />

studybyUniversityof<strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

student,EleanorGunby.<br />

The project will examine the factors<br />

affecting the breeding success of<br />

shorebirds which nestaroundthe<br />

estuary,says ARRG Operations<br />

Manager, Grant Davey.<br />

‘‘Of particularinterestisnest<br />

locationrelative to high­tide leveland<br />

vegetation,disturbancebyhumans,<br />

and also theSouthern black­backed<br />

gull,orkaroro,’’ he says.<br />

‘‘Thenumbers of these birds have<br />

increasedsignificantly over recent<br />

years, and it is well knownthat they<br />

can predate(killand eat)onthe eggs<br />

and chicksofsmaller species.’’<br />

Localevidence shows numbers of<br />

otherrarer native species, suchas<br />

banded dotterel (turiwhatu), blackfronted<br />

terns (tarapirohe), whitefronted<br />

terns (tara) and pied stilt<br />

(poaka) have declined over the past 20<br />

yearssowith this in mind<br />

Environment <strong>Canterbury</strong> is exploring<br />

optionsfor limitingthe extentofthe<br />

karoro’s nesting area.<br />

Eleanor’s study will determine the<br />

main threats to breeding shorebirds —<br />

one of which is predation by<br />

hedgehogs, stoats, weasels, feralcats<br />

and rats.<br />

‘‘Currently there are 125 traps<br />

around the estuary, regularly checked<br />

by nine volunteers. In the lastyear we<br />

have caught 185 predators which<br />

included 131 rats,’’ Grant says.<br />

‘‘The estuary has always been an<br />

important staging post for birds<br />

movingupand down the river, but the<br />

birds breeding there is arelatively<br />

newfocusfor the group.<br />

‘‘Most activity during the last 23<br />

years has been on the birdsbreeding<br />

along the21km of riverbed between<br />

theSH1 bridge and theOkuku<br />

junction.’’<br />

Apart from monitoring the bird<br />

successinthis stretchofriver, the<br />

group maintains 252 traps, whichlast<br />

year (1/8/22 to 31/7/23) caught 836<br />

predators including519 rats.<br />

‘‘Norway ratsare the most important<br />

predator, perhapsfollowed by cats,’’<br />

Grantsays.<br />

ARRG makes its own DOC200 traps<br />

for predatorcontrol, and also sells<br />

them to the public as afund­raising<br />

venture. However, most of ARRG's<br />

fundscome from donations, with<br />

larger sums supported by grants such<br />

as from Environment <strong>Canterbury</strong>, the<br />

Department of Conservationand most<br />

recentlythe Waimakariri WaterZone<br />

committee's $9000 grant.<br />

New venue for Wearable arts<br />

BY SHELLEY TOPP<br />

Anew venue for the <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

Wearable Arts Show will provide an<br />

‘‘exciting bonus’’for those attending,an<br />

organiser Jane Anderson says.<br />

The new venue for the region’s annual<br />

premier fashion event, at the Rangiora<br />

Baptist Church auditorium,means‘‘we<br />

can at last have arunway leadingtoan<br />

extended stage’’, she says.<br />

‘‘This will allow the audience to be<br />

wrapped aroundboth the stage and<br />

runway giving them an up­close<br />

encounterofeach costume.<br />

‘‘It adds to agreat atmosphere on the<br />

night.’’<br />

The showcase of wearable art which is<br />

afundraiser for the Oxford AreaSchool,<br />

provides acreative opportunity for<br />

students and adults to display their work<br />

in atheatrical atmosphere.<br />

There will be live music, judges, a<br />

compere and prizes.<br />

The show was held last year at the<br />

Rangiora Town Hall, but another venue<br />

Bart says the event is limited to 100<br />

tickets, and the funds raised from the<br />

sale of chits will go toward a<br />

defribulator.<br />

There is anoon start as the race gets<br />

under way and will end when the<br />

racing finishes around 7pm.<br />

Bart says they couldn’t have got the<br />

fundraiser off the ground without the<br />

support the proprietor who was keen<br />

to help the community, and be part of<br />

the community event.<br />

‘‘Tickets are already selling well,’’ he<br />

says.<br />

Alongside the fundraiser there will<br />

be aniche car show with people being<br />

encouraged to get their projects out of<br />

the garage, sharpen them up and drive<br />

them along to display outside the hotel<br />

from 10am.<br />

Bart says other events are being<br />

considered to help pay for the vital<br />

equipment, with adefribulator, with<br />

three years of free maintenance<br />

costing around $5000 all up.<br />

He says to access the defribulator,<br />

which will be outside the hotel, people<br />

will need to dial 111 to get an access<br />

code. This also ensures an ambulance<br />

is on its way.<br />

Call for sharper focus on scholarships<br />

BY SHELLEY TOPP<br />

A<strong>North</strong><strong>Canterbury</strong> primaryschool<br />

principal is pleased to learnthat the<br />

Governmenthas established 478<br />

teacher­training scholarships.<br />

LastmonthSwannanoa Primary<br />

School principal BrianPrice, whois<br />

alsothe lead principal of the<br />

RangioraCommunityofLearning<br />

Group PuketerakiKāhui Ako, called<br />

on the Government to fund 100free<br />

teacher­training scholarships.<br />

‘‘Ifsuch aforward­thinking<br />

initiative,with aguaranteed teaching<br />

job after training, was funded it would<br />

go along way towards solvingthe<br />

currentteacher shortage crisis,’’ he<br />

said.<br />

LabourPartylist MP Dan<br />

Rosewarne,who lives in Woodend,<br />

responded to Mr Price’scallsaying<br />

sincelastSeptember theGovernment<br />

hadoffered 478people teaching<br />

scholarships,ofwhich 290 were<br />

career­changescholarships.<br />

‘‘We have alsosupported 1<strong>24</strong><br />

beginningand returning teachers into<br />

roles throughthe BeTTER(beginning<br />

educationteacherand teacher<br />

educationrefresh)programme,’’ he<br />

says. ‘‘TheGovernment hasbeen very<br />

focusedonsupporting teacher<br />

recruitment, including the<br />

investment lastyearofanadditional<br />

$<strong>24</strong>million to train andattract 1000<br />

more teachers.’’<br />

Mr Price saysitisgreat that<br />

teacher­training scholarships have<br />

been establishedand that the<br />

Government is trying initiatives to<br />

recruitteachers andfillthe teaching<br />

shortage.<br />

However, he would liketosee a<br />

sharper focus on the primaryschool<br />

sector, where moreteachers are<br />

desperatelyneeded.<br />

‘‘Iwouldlike to see scholarships for<br />

primaryschool teachersspecifically,<br />

andfor afocusonpromoting the<br />

professionasanattractiveand<br />

rewarding career,’’ he says.<br />

‘‘Afocus on the positivesofteaching<br />

andcelebration of success of the work<br />

teachers acrossthe professiondo<br />

wouldgoalong way towards attracting<br />

quality people intoour profession.’’<br />

WaimakaririMPMattDooceyand<br />

Kaikoura MP StuartSmith, say<br />

National is supportive of allowing a<br />

more practical pathway for trainee<br />

teachers to enterthe workforce.<br />

‘‘Ourview is that the currentway we<br />

do teacher training isn’t working, and<br />

it isn’t doing agoodenoughjob of<br />

preparingstudents in core areas such<br />

as classroommanagement andthe<br />

science of learning.’’<br />

Mental health abig issue for Hurunui youth<br />

By DAVID HILL,<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

Mental health remainsthe single<br />

biggest issue for Hurunui youth.<br />

Arecent survey by the Hurunui<br />

YouthCouncilfound 50 percent of<br />

localyouth thought mental health and<br />

wellbeingwas the number one issue<br />

they faced.<br />

Speakingatlast week’s Hurunui<br />

DistrictCouncil strategy and<br />

communitymeeting, youth<br />

development officer Jo Sherwood said<br />

therewere growing numbersofyoung<br />

people in some form of home learning<br />

due in part to anxiety.<br />

‘‘It is acombination of things. We’ve<br />

had Covid and the schoolstrikes, so if<br />

your only way of connection is getting<br />

on the school bus and going to school,<br />

and that’s taken away, it can be<br />

unsettling.<br />

‘‘Online learning works well for<br />

some young people, but not so well for<br />

others.<br />

‘‘And we know that schoolsdon’t<br />

have enough support, so it is about<br />

how we can collectivelyadvocate for<br />

them.’’<br />

As of May 11, there were 49 young<br />

peopleinhomeeducation, withan<br />

education exemption, and 67 studying<br />

through distancelearning through Te<br />

Kura (Correspondence School), with<br />

16 of themalso enrolledatlocal area<br />

schools.<br />

‘‘Thisindicates asignificant<br />

numberofHurunuiyoung people that<br />

are home schooled,’’ Ms Sherwood<br />

said.<br />

‘‘We are looking at how we can<br />

connect with them throughthe home<br />

schoolnetwork to promotethe youth<br />

programme provision through their<br />

channels.’’<br />

Councilstaff are alsolooking at how<br />

theycould support volunteers who<br />

worked with youngpeople, around<br />

ethics training and how to have<br />

conversations aroundmental health,<br />

suchaswhen ayoung person<br />

‘‘mentions suicide’’.<br />

‘‘Youngpeople’slanguage around<br />

mental health is different to other<br />

generations,’’ she said.‘‘Theytalk<br />

about it in an open, normalised way.’’<br />

The youth councilhas been<br />

engagingwith local social service<br />

agency Together Hurunui and this has<br />

led to Wellbeing <strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong><br />

agreeingtodoaworkshop with the<br />

youth counciltoexplore further<br />

options for supporting mental health<br />

needs.<br />

Ms Sherwood said the recent survey<br />

also found thateducation, healthcare,<br />

racism, ‘‘havingour voice heard’’ and<br />

climate change were alsoofconcernto<br />

youngpeople.<br />

Therewere some variationsaround<br />

the district,for example in the Amuri<br />

respondents ratedracism equallywith<br />

mental health and wellbeing as the<br />

most pressing issue.<br />

In Cheviot, climatechangerated<br />

higher compared to the rest of the<br />

district, while in Amberley education<br />

was amajor concern.<br />

Hurunui MayorMarie Black said she<br />

was impressedbythe young peopleon<br />

the youth council.<br />

‘‘I think this has beenanamazing<br />

year forour youth andseeing their<br />

leadership develop is just<br />

tremendous.’’<br />

Woodend Bypass<br />

news welcome<br />

By DAVID HILL,<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

The prospect of work beginningonthe<br />

WoodendBypassduring the next<br />

Parliamentary term is welcome news,<br />

says Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon.<br />

The Labour government announced<br />

plans last weektobuild the Woodend<br />

Bypass by 2030.<br />

This followedNational’s<br />

announcement it remained committed to<br />

building the bypass, if elected in<br />

October’s general election.<br />

‘‘The community has been callingout<br />

for this promised infrastructure to be<br />

delivered and for concrete timeframes<br />

for construction to start,’’ Mr Gordon<br />

says.<br />

‘‘For both majorpartiestoidentifythis<br />

as apriority project is great news.<br />

The WoodendBypasshas beeninthe<br />

pipeline for decades.<br />

The existing stretch of State Highway 1<br />

is one of the mostdangerous roads in<br />

<strong>Canterbury</strong>, with nine fatal and 33<br />

seriouscrashes between 2000and 2018.<br />

National promised to build the bypass<br />

in the lead up to the 2017 general<br />

election, but achange in government<br />

priorities has seen it languishingasan<br />

‘‘horizon project’’ in the National Land<br />

Transport Plan.<br />

Associate Transport Minister Kieran<br />

McAnulty announced aseriesofsafety<br />

improvements last yearinbid to alleviate<br />

community concerns,while residents<br />

waited for the bypass to be built.<br />

<strong>North</strong> <strong>Canterbury</strong>­based Labour List<br />

MP Dan Rosewarne said the bypass<br />

would now be brought forward in the<br />

20<strong>24</strong>­27NationalLand Transport Plan.<br />

The Christchurch<strong>North</strong>ernLink will<br />

be upgraded from Waimakariri River to<br />

Ashley River, including the proposed<br />

alignment to the east of the Woodend<br />

township.<br />

‘‘I would like to see on the ground work<br />

get under way next year, but the 2026/27<br />

financial year is more realistic,’’ Mr<br />

Rosewarne says.<br />

‘‘For alot of projects around the<br />

country, the design work and planning<br />

has stillgot to be done, but with Woodend<br />

the designisalmost complete and the<br />

land is alreadyconsented.’’<br />

Work is expected to be completed by<br />

2030.<br />

National announced last month that<br />

construction of the Woodend Bypass<br />

would begin during its first term of<br />

government, as partofits Transport for<br />

the Futureplan.<br />

Waimakariri MP and National’s<br />

Associate Transport Spokesperson, Matt<br />

Doocey,said Labour’s announcement<br />

was ‘‘cynical at best’’.<br />

‘‘Labour were the ones who cancelled<br />

this vital roadingproject, leavingthe<br />

experiences more than 20,000 traffic<br />

movements aday.<br />

PHOTO:FILE<br />

Woodend community split in two by<br />

increasinglydangerous traffic levels year<br />

on year.<br />

‘‘Now they wantthat same community<br />

to believe theyhave their interests at<br />

heart.’’<br />

National has said it wouldcommit $270<br />

million to project, but Mr Rosewarnesaid<br />

the costs were likely to be higher, with<br />

labourshortages and compliance costs<br />

likelytodrive up costs.<br />

Transport Minister David Parker<br />

released the 20<strong>24</strong> draft Government<br />

PolicyStatement on Transport last week,<br />

announcingthe government would<br />

increase its investmentto$5.4 billionfor<br />

road maintenance and $3.8 billion for<br />

road improvements overthe next three<br />

years.<br />

Afurther$3.6 billion was earmarked<br />

for public transport.<br />

The increasedinvestment wouldbe<br />

fundedthrough increasing petrol tax by<br />

four cents alitre per year from next year.<br />

While the prospect of an increase in<br />

petroltax may not be welcomednews, the<br />

Reserve Bank was predicting inflation to<br />

drop to 2.7 percent by the middle of next<br />

year, which should reduce the burden,<br />

Mr Rosewarne said.<br />

National has indicated its roading<br />

policywould be fundedthrough avariety<br />

of sources, including toll roads, equity<br />

financing from entities like the Super<br />

Fund and KiwiSaver funds, and foreign<br />

investment.<br />

Emphasis on climate change<br />

By DAVID HILL,<br />

Local Democracy Reporter<br />

Adapting to climate change is expected<br />

to have amajor impact on Waimakariri’s<br />

economy over the next decade.<br />

The Waimakariri District Council’s<br />

draft economic development strategy<br />

20<strong>24</strong>/34 is out for consultation and it<br />

considers how the district will respond<br />

to growing environmental challenges,<br />

business and centres senior advisor<br />

Vanessa Thompson says.<br />

‘‘The focus of the previous strategy<br />

was in part aresponse to earthquake<br />

recovery, whereas the next 10 years will<br />

see an emphasis placed on climate<br />

change adaptation,’’ she said.<br />

‘‘This includes undertaking actions,<br />

some business­as­usual and many new,<br />

that support our businesses, industries,<br />

and wider economy transition to alowemissions<br />

future.’’<br />

She said the strategy identified three<br />

key areas which made up the local<br />

economy, including agriculture,<br />

manufacturing and accommodating<br />

population growth.<br />

‘‘The Waimakariri district continues<br />

to be one of New Zealand’s fastest<br />

growing areas with our population<br />

expected to approach 97,000 by 2048.<br />

‘‘Opportunities are available for<br />

businesses and industries seeking to<br />

service population and household<br />

related demands.’’<br />

Rural land made up around 96 percent<br />

of the district’s total land mass and<br />

continued to provide astrong base to the<br />

local economy, she said.<br />

‘‘It is one of our greatest natural assets<br />

from which we can support our local<br />

population, our natural eco­systems,<br />

and produce food for ourselves and<br />

other parts of the world.<br />

‘‘It offers diverse possibilities<br />

including arange of mixed uses like<br />

Rural economy ... Rural land makes up around 96 percent of the Waimakariri district’s<br />

farming, forestry, energy and tourism.’’<br />

The Waimakariri district is believed<br />

to have the highest number of lifestyle<br />

blocks in the country, with many of them<br />

supporting niche business activity.<br />

Ms Thompson said there were<br />

opportunities to capitalise more on the<br />

natural environment.<br />

Other opportunities included<br />

boutique retail and hospitality<br />

experiences in the town centres and<br />

hosting events which drew people into<br />

the district.<br />

‘‘Our lifestyle offers an attractive<br />

proposition for those seeking the slower<br />

pace of asemi­rural community with all<br />

the city conveniences, which may help<br />

us attract talent and industries to the<br />

area.’’<br />

Forestry plantings need ‘limits’<br />

TIM.CRONSHAW<br />

@ALLIEDPRESS.CO.NZ<br />

The grey mood of sheep and beef<br />

farmers is darkening as they learn the<br />

scale of their land being bought for<br />

forestry is higher than first thought.<br />

They are already feeling the heat from<br />

farm inflation, lower prices and rapid<br />

regulation changes.<br />

An updated report on landuse change<br />

from pastoral farming to large­scale<br />

forestry shows the extent of land being<br />

bought by forestry interests.<br />

Beef+Lamb New Zealand chief<br />

executive Sam McIvor said farmers<br />

were already concerned about the<br />

conversion of food­producing sheep and<br />

beef land into carbon farming.<br />

He said the Orme &Associates report<br />

commissioned by BLNZ initially showed<br />

more than 52,000ha of land was bought<br />

for forestry interests in 2021, but revised<br />

data showed it was more than 63,000ha.<br />

‘‘The government must urgently work<br />

with the sector to implement limits<br />

before it’s too late.’’<br />

Mr McIvor said the numbers fell to<br />

36,000ha last year because of<br />

uncertainty over policy changes, but<br />

were likely to rise as there was abacklog<br />

of applications sitting with the Overseas<br />

Investment Office.<br />

‘‘This takes the total to more than<br />

200,000ha of sheep and beef farms<br />

bought over the last five years, which is<br />

asignificant concern for the sheep and<br />

beef sector and rural communities,’’ he<br />

said.<br />

He said the scale of change was far<br />

more than recommended by the Climate<br />

Change Commission.<br />

‘‘New Zealand is one of the only<br />

countries in the world that allows fossil<br />

fuel emitters to offset 100% of their<br />

emissions.<br />

‘‘The government is currently<br />

consulting on changes to the Emissions<br />

Trading Scheme, and it needs to act.’’<br />

Carbon farming did not create jobs or<br />

add export returns, he said.<br />

BLNZ was not anti­forestry, as<br />

farmers had tree lots and there was a<br />

place for it and for some offsetting, but<br />

there needed to be some balance.<br />

‘‘Production forestry, in combination<br />

with carbon forestry, can often be<br />

integrated into sheep and beef farms<br />

without loss of food production.<br />

‘‘We also recognise the unique<br />

circumstances of some Māori<br />

landowners who can never sell their<br />

land.<br />

‘‘This is alegitimate instance where<br />

carbon credits from offsetting should be<br />

available.’’<br />

Mr McIvor said the land­use change<br />

was affecting livestock numbers.<br />

Statistics New Zealand data showed<br />

the national sheep flock dropped<br />

400,000 to be 25.3 million in mid­2022,<br />

with numbers likely to fall further due to<br />

new plantings, he said.<br />

The Ministry for Primary Industries<br />

estimated afurther 88,000ha of new<br />

planting this year.<br />

Nearly a­third of meat and wool<br />

farmers predicted they were heading for<br />

aloss in aFederated Farmers survey on<br />

farmer confidence.<br />

Furthermore, 74.6% expected<br />

profitability to worsen.<br />

The survey of more than 1000 dairy,<br />

sheep, beef and arable farmers found<br />

their confidence was at historic lows.<br />

Federated Farmers president Wayne<br />

Langford said farmers were dealing<br />

with high interest rates, huge inflation<br />

and asteep decline in meat and milk<br />

prices.<br />

‘‘We’re also facing an unprecedented<br />

level of regulatory change that is<br />

heaping on costs, undermining<br />

profitability and creating huge<br />

uncertainty for farmers.<br />

‘‘Unfortunately, all these challenges<br />

have arrived at the same time, which<br />

just compounds the pressure farmers<br />

are feeling —it’s just not sustainable.’’<br />

The Widest<br />

Mr Langford said they were likely to<br />

stop spending money and try to cut costs<br />

from their business, which would flow<br />

through to the economy.<br />

Boil Water Update Notice Oxford<br />

The boil water notice on the Oxford Rural No.1<br />

water supply remains in place.<br />

Since the turbidity incident last week, turbidity<br />

levels of the well have continued to be high despite<br />

efforts to flush the well.<br />

The increased turbidity has been affecting the<br />

treatment system and putting astrain on the<br />

well pump.<br />

Therefore, adecision has been made to<br />

commence re-development of the main well<br />

at the McPhedrons Road site.<br />

The emergency backup source at the Rockford Road<br />

River Intake will be brought online to supply the<br />

water scheme whilst the main well is taken offline<br />

for re-development.<br />

The re-development works on the well will<br />

commence on Monday 21 <strong>August</strong> <strong>2023</strong> and is<br />

expected to take four to six weeks to complete.<br />

Whilst the boil water notice was precautionary<br />

before, it is now critical as the water quality from<br />

the river intake is very poor in comparison.<br />

We will continue to update you via our website and<br />

social media channels as any more information<br />

comes to hand.<br />

Waimakariri Welcomes Second<br />

Announcement onWoodend Bypass<br />

Waimakariri Mayor Dan Gordon is welcoming a<br />

policy announcement from the Government that<br />

promises to deliver the Woodend Bypass.<br />

Labour recently announced that, if elected, they<br />

would build asuite of ‘<strong>North</strong>ern Link’ projects that<br />

include the Woodend Bypass as well as creating<br />

more lanes on the Ashley River Bridge.<br />

In the statement they scheduled the Woodend<br />

Bypass to start in 2026/27. It also included an<br />

extra $5.4b to assist with for the maintenance of<br />

state highway and local roads.<br />

This announcement follows the National Party's<br />

transport package which includes the Woodend<br />

Bypass as aroad of national significance.<br />

Mayor Dan Gordon says it is great tosee that the<br />

two major parties are committed to aproject that<br />

we have advocated strongly over many years.<br />

The Woodend Bypass was first confirmed in2013<br />

following safety concerns from the community<br />

but Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency stalled<br />

the project.<br />

Since then, many in the community, including<br />

Waimakariri District Council and Woodend-<br />

Seon Community Board, have called for and<br />

organised public rallies calling for this project to<br />

be prioritised.<br />

“This second announcement prioritising the<br />

Woodend Bypass will be welcome news tothe<br />

community,” says Mayor Gordon.<br />

“The community here have been calling out for<br />

this promised infrastructure to be delivered and<br />

for concrete timeframes for construction to start.<br />

For both major parties toidentify this as priority<br />

project is great news.<br />

“Today over 20,000 vehicles pass through<br />

Woodend every day, and this is only going to<br />

increase. The town is quite literally divided intwo<br />

by the State Highway. The Bypass will make the<br />

area safer for residents, business owners and<br />

children –it’s well overdue.<br />

“The Council and Ifully support this second<br />

announcement as it shows the infrastructure<br />

needed by communities of Woodend, Pegasus<br />

and Ravenswood are on the radar of both<br />

major parties.”<br />

The Council is also committed to continue to<br />

strongly advocate for better infrastructure<br />

investment from Waka Kotahi for the wider District.<br />

“There are many pressing road developments such<br />

as areplacement of Skew Bridge in East Kaiapoi<br />

as well as an Eastern Rangiora Link Road that are<br />

required to accommodate agrowing population.”<br />

says Mayor Gordon.<br />

About Road Reserve<br />

KAIAPOI CHRISTADELPHIANS<br />

“The Key ofKnowledge ..”<br />

(Luke 11:52)<br />

PROOF THE BIBLE IS<br />

ACCURATEAND TRUE<br />

The Bible (God’s word), isanaccount ofevents from<br />

Creation, until the establishment ofaKingdom over all<br />

the Earth ruled by arighteous King.<br />

Whatisthe proofthatthisistrue? The Biblehas provided<br />

prophetical stories, so that every generation would<br />

witness their fulfillment.<br />

One of the firstprophecieswas in Genesis,when Adam<br />

and Eve were told “You may freely eat of every tree of<br />

the garden; but of the fruit of the tree of knowledge of<br />

good and evil you shall not eat, for inthe day that you<br />

eat of it you shall die’ Genesis 2:2:15 (Hebrew -dying,<br />

you shalldie).<br />

After disobeying the commandment, death has come<br />

upon every human being. But God in mercy provided<br />

another prophecy- there would come a saviour, a<br />

descendant of Eve, whowould destroythe power of sin<br />

and setman free throughforgiveness of sins.<br />
