Local board debate about to begin

On Monday morning, the Local Government Commission (LGC) officially opened the first phase of public consultation on the option of a Golden Bay local board. At the same time, the Commission published its consultation document – posting a copy on the LGC website and sending out hard copies to all Tasman District mailboxes. The 14-page document explains what a local board is, the positive reasons for establishing one, what it might do, and what it might cost, including who would pay for it. The contents will form the basis of what could prove to be a crucial community conversation about the future governance of Golden Bay. That discussion begins in earnest next week

with public meetings being held in Takaka and Collingwood. The document explains, in some detail, the pros and cons of establishing a local board in Golden Bay, but the argument really boils down to whether Tasman District Council and Golden Bay ratepayers are prepared to pay for improved local democracy, better local decision-making and more responsive governance. The Golden Bay Local Board Working Group (GBLBWG), who applied to the LGC in 2018 to investigate the establishment of a local board, are following developments closely. Working Group secretary and spokesman Tony Lawton says the group’s first reaction was that the document “represents a good

basis for the upcoming discussions with the Golden Bay community about communitylevel democracy”. He hopes that public debate will improve on what he says is already a good proposal. “Even as it stands, it would represent a significant improvement in local government decisionmaking for this remote and wonderful community. However, we see a number of opportunities to deliver even greater benefits to the Golden Bay community.” One of the key advantages of a local board is its increased autonomy achieved by reallocating non-regulatory functions and responsibilities from council to the community. While the Commission recommends that a local board is made responsible for many of

Golden Bay’s community assets, it proposes only an advocacy role for others – specifically commercial assets such as Port Tarakohe, Takaka Aerodrome and the two campgrounds. Tony says a local board should have, at minimum, a shared responsibility for these facilities rather than a “remote” advisory role. “We believe integration of these assets into a Golden Bay Local Board’s Three-Year Plan is vital for ensuring efficient, sustainable development whilst respecting the Bay’s unique and special culture and environment.” Regarding regulatory responsibilities, the GBLBWG is concerned that success of the LGC’s proposed collaborative approach with Tasman District Council, will be heavily dependent on the latter’s goodwill.

Mariposa owner to “hang in there” RONNIE SHORT

Tracey Brignole, the owner of Takaka and Nelson stores Mariposa, Soul and Dragonfly, says that she is “heartbroken” at the closure of the Takaka Mariposa shop, after operating for 12 years on Commercial Street next to the Village Green. Following directly on the heels of the Covid lockdown and all the associated stress that meant for businesses, Tracey was given notice on 2 June to vacate the premises by the end of the month. Fortunately she was able to extend that deadline until the end of July, but Mariposa will be closing the doors on Saturday 18 July. The three current staff, along with eight more employed during summer, make a total of 11 people who will lose their jobs as a result of the closure. Tracey has tried all avenues to secure a new venue for the popular clothing outlet but as yet to no avail. She is reluctant

to take on the lease of “another leaky building”, because she needs a large space that is totally dry for her goods. The warehouse and office space Tracey rents on Junction Street will continue providing online services, but large storage space for the shop’s current stock is hard to come by. Tracey thinks she may have to rent space somewhere outside Golden Bay. She says there have been times in the past few months when she has felt overwhelmed, but she has received encouragement and support from many locals who don’t want to see the shop go, so she is determined to “hang in there”. Surprised that business has been brisk since the return to level one, Tracey said her six stores have done well so far, although she is aware things could worsen economically yet. “The thing that’s really sad,” she said, “is that we have just had our best June ever.”

Local board debate about to begin Continued from page 1 Tony believes it would be more efficient to delegate decision-making for certain areas of regulation to a local board. “The Working Group identified in its application specific areas of local regulation where a more tailored approach to suit our unique community requirements could have significant benefits for the community, like housing regulation and seawall protection - benefits it would be a shame not to achieve.” The wider scope of responsibilities accrued by a local board compared to a community board means that governance and support costs will increase, and this is likely to be a key issue for the Golden Bay community. Under current legislation, TDC will determine the targeted rates for these costs, something that Tony is concerned about. “The Commission has made an excellent start with the work it has done in establishing what these costs should be, but we believe only direct pressure from Wellington will ensure TDC charge our community in a fair and equitable manner.” The Commission has estimated a targeted rate of around $15 per annum for each Golden Bay household to cover increased governance costs related to the five elected members of the local board. In addition, the Commission recommends the appointment of one additional council staff member to provide the local board with direct support, at an estimated annual cost of $240,000, which could take the total increase in annual rates to $75. However, Tony points out there is a strong argument for spreading the burden across the district. “We see merit in the argument that as many of these responsibilities are transferred from TDC’s Richmond base, with its 300-odd staff, rather than incremental services, there is scope to absorb more of the direct costs in the general rate.” Tony stresses the importance of finding a financial solution that is acceptable to all parties. “The benefits are clear; it would be a shame for the issue of funding governance and support costs to prevent the Golden Bay community from achieving them.” The Commission recommends that any additional indirect decision support costs should be born by council, something that is endorsed by the Working Group. “Given that these costs are based in Richmond, and that TDC has the ability to reduce costs relating to Golden Bay local board support by offsetting reduction in its Richmond bureaucracy for the transferred responsibilities, there should be little argument

with the Commission that these costs be funded from the general rate.” Interested parties will be able to discuss these issues, and many other aspects of the local board, until the initial consultation ends on 14 August. During this period the LGC welcomes submissions which can be made via its website, by completing the form provided in the consultation document, or by writing directly to the Commission. In September submitters will have the opportunity to present their arguments in person at one or more hearings, after which the LGC will consider all inputs and, if necessary, hold discussions with interested parties “to clarify the scope of any particular allocation or delegation of decision-making responsibility, or the particular mechanisms for representing local interests in governing body decision-making”. Although a final decision is expected in November, there will be plenty of work to do before October next year when the election for a new board is scheduled to take place. If all goes according to plan, the new local board would come into existence on 1 November 2021. In the meantime, Tony is anticipating a positive discussion about the local board and urges all parties to participate. “We look forward to having the Commission engage with our community, and the other communities in the Tasman district, to establish the public view on this proposal, and hope TDC take this as a fantastic opportunity to work with our community, and its other communities, to significantly enhance community-level engagement in local government.” Public meetings: Rec Centre, Takaka on Thursday, 16 July at 7pm. Collingwood Fire Station on Friday, 17 July at 10am. For more information: Local Government Commission at: www.lgc.govt.nz GB Local Board Working Group at: www.gblocalboard.co.nz

It was great to read that the hopes of all of us in Golden Bay of having greater control of our affairs through local board (GBW 3/7) could now be realised. The opportunity must be grasped with vigour by all of us who reside in this special place. I urge all of you who read this column to “Carpe Diem” (seize the day). This is the only chance we will get this decade to secure control of decision-making at the council table regarding policy and funding of Golden Bay public services. Please make your voice heard at the planned meetings in Takaka and Collingwood next week, and through submissions until 14 August. We did not speak loudly enough over the Waimea Dam and certainly were badly served by our councillors at the time. Please write to, phone, or email councillors Chris Hill and Celia Butler to do their duty and represent our wishes. There is no argument against this local board that can be defeated if we go with this together. Do not accept any negative arguments that will be driven and pushed by TDC staff and hierarchy. In my experience, they will do their best to prevent it happening. In the words of Jacinda, “Let’s just do it”. Reg Turner

Around 20 years ago the Local Government Commission established Tasman District Council, with 14 councillors, to decide regional issues, together with community boards for Golden Bay and Motueka to provide these unique communities with local input on local issues. Seven years later (2007) the Commission reprimanded TDC for not delegating to its community boards. TDC continues to ignore this directive: current delegations to the GB Community Board amount to Christmas street-decorations, although after a 2018 petition from 700 GB locals to the Commission, TDC are now adding “dog control laws”. Our community pays over $9million annually in rates. Under the Local Government Act, we are entitled to community-level democracy. The Commission has the responsibility and authority to address this. Next week, the Commission is coming to the Bay to discuss our options for local democratic decision-making. Read their “GB Local Board Proposal” document at www.lgc.govt.nz or www.gblocalboard. co.nz. Public meetings (Takaka Rec Centre on Thursday 16 July at 7pm; Collingwood Fire Station on Friday 17 July at 10am) are your opportunity to participate in how our community will be governed.

Black Lives Matter



New Zealand may not have huge numbers of black people, but they are here – and regardless, the global movement for racial justice is plenty relevant to this land’s history and future. The fact that someone in Golden Bay felt the need to vandalise an artwork that simply asked white people to speak up proves the necessity of the conversation right here in our community. It takes courage to confront deep-rooted inequalities in our society, and it may take just as much courage to confront prejudices within ourselves. But it seems like the perfect historic moment to do just that. Redwood Reider

More from the school of positive thoughts

To continue thinking about the positive things I have learnt at school, there was one I omitted and that was in Mrs Marion Curnow’s class where we tested the burning characteristics of similar-sized samples of different materials. We learnt that wool is naturally fire-resistant and that wool fibres are also naturally equipped to manage moisture levels which prevents the build-up of bacteria. Since Marion’s time, thermals have become popular. After a day’s wear one has only to do a sniff test to compare the underarm difference between wool and other thermal garments. The second memory was that of a slight, ginger-haired classmate Neil McCormack who lived with his mum on a tidal rock at Tarakohe. While the teacher was out of the room, he could turn a piece of paper into an amazing flying aircraft. Being very shy and scared at the thought of the strap, I so admired his skill and bravery.

Watching the Black Lives Matter movement rise to new heights – in the United State, and worldwide – has been inspiring. Black people have been raising their voices about threats to their safety for a long time, but finally more of the world is listening and demanding justice. So I was disheartened to learn that an art piece supporting this movement was recently defaced on the main street of Takaka. The original artwork said, “White silence is compliance.” And so it is. Racial justice is not a black people’s issue, or a Māori people’s issue. If things are going to change, it needs to be an everybody issue. I suspect that many well-meaning Pākehā are quiet on this subject out of fear of saying the wrong thing. But if we say nothing, we are indeed saying the wrong thing.

Warming winter veg: Swede and leek gratin. Photo: Fiona Manson. FIONA MANSON

Limited choices sometimes just make life easier. After the summer parade of the bright and beautiful, the sheer abundance of fruit and veg all vying for attention, the subtle hues of winter fare offer a calmer response. Out of all the root vegetables, the swede may not be seen as the beauty queen, and they don’t get a lot of press. Nevertheless, we’ve recently tried some inspiring ways to use them and the results have been surprisingly tasty. I discover that I’m not the only one who enjoys these unassuming members of the cruciferous family, which includes other cold-weather favourites: broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts etc. I recently asked locals Neil and John at the Mussel Inn what they liked about swede. Neil smiled broadly and said “everything!” John agreed and added that “they need cold on them before harvest…then they will be sweeter, and the steamed green leaves are also delicious”. For a vegetable that many of us have considered cattle fodder, this humble and easily grown vegetable has a surprising amount of health properties, is low in calories and high in vitamin C. Swede is good for the gut, and makes a good substitute for potatoes when assisting people with diabetes. My introduction to swede was when my nan cooked it for us as children. She boiled swede and carrots together, mashed them with butter, white pepper and salt and I can still remember how surprised I was at their sweetness. Delicious with a roast of meat, they are also famous as an accompaniment to haggis. In Scotland they are called neeps, and when turned into a buttery puree to serve with their national dish they are referred to as bashed neeps. Often a recipe for mashed swede includes a pinch of ground ginger to help assist with any flatulence that may occur. I must add that mashed swede has a far superior flavour when they are cooked in stock rather than water, and that the added butter, salt and pepper greatly assist the result. Draining the cooked swede very well (and even drying it off in the stillhot pan) is a necessary step in eliminating a watery mash due to their high water content. This mash can now be used in many different ways, and is as versatile as your imagination will allow: A pie topping (fish, chicken or meat); a vege dish with buttery crumbs on top; as a gratin; a topping for shepherd’s pie; added

to smoked salmon fish cakes, etc. The vegetable can also be eaten raw, but I would suggest using a smaller specimen, or peeling the skin off quite thickly if you are dealing with a larger swede. A crunchy addition to coleslaw, they are also very good eaten as a substitute for celeriac as in the classic salad of celeriac remoulade. Peeled and grated, the vegetable is mixed with a mustardy mayonnaise and is absolutely delicious. And a very special way to show off this underrated star is to combine it with fresh winter pears and walnuts. We have been making batches of soup lately using swede, carrots and leeks. After slow cooking them until very soft I blend them into a puree. We then got some packets of vegetable soup mix containing green split pearl barley, yellow split peas, red and brown split lentils and stock powder…which we boiled and added to the swede puree. The result is perfect winter fare, heart-warming and good for the soul. Swede is also a great addition to a vegetable curry, added to any kind of stew, dish of roasted root vegetables, puree or soup. I’m always a fan of the underdog and the unassuming. The swede raises its humble head and wins me over. Swede and Leek Gratin 700g of already peeled and thinly sliced swede 1 leek, thinly sliced 300ml cream White pepper and salt 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard 50g grated gruyere cheese 1 clove of crushed garlic 50g grated gruyere extra Butter an ovenproof gratin dish. Heat the oven to 180oC. Add the slices of swede and leek to a pan of boiling salted water and cook for four minutes. Drain very well and return to the still-hot pan. Mix together the cream, mustard, seasonings, cheese and garlic. Add to the swede and leek, and mix together. Turn into the baking dish. Scatter with the extra cheese and bake for 55 minutes; by then it should be golden and bubbling. Allow to rest for five minutes before serving with a lightly dressed salad of green leaves, sliced pear and walnuts.

Review: Les Miserables


Though it has a contemporary setting, the new Les Misérables is not a literal modern-day adaptation of Victor Hugo’s 1862 novel, and certainly not a dramatisation of the beloved stage musical that originally premiered 40 years ago. But this hard-hitting drama, set among “les Bosquets” (the underprivileged housing estates of Montfermeil, near Paris), still has themes in common with Hugo’s novel. And these similarities become increasingly apparent as events gradually escalate beyond control in a searing climax. The film begins with a rural police officer recently moved to Paris, Stephane Ruiz (Damien Bonnard), being assigned to patrol Montfermeil as part of a three-man anti-crime squad. The squad leader Chris quickly demonstrates his contempt for the people of this struggling, crime-ridden area, abusing his own authority to bully and oppress them. The three policemen soon have to deal with a real crisis when a baseball-bat-wielding mob from a nearby circus confronts “the Mayor”, the leader of the local African community, to demand the return of a stolen lion cub. The squad manages to defuse the violence by promising to return the animal. Juvenile delinquent Issa soon shows his hand as the culprit when he posts an image of himself with the cub on social media. But Chris overplays his hand in what should have been a straightforward apprehension of the boy, resulting in disaster. Issa is seriously injured by a police firearm, and the incident is captured by another youth’s drone camera. Knowing full well that the footage will end his career, Chris only cares about recovering it, while a horrified Stephane is desperate to get Issa urgent medical help. Desperate negotiations appear to resolve the conflict to everyone’s satisfaction, but the adult authority figures have reckoned without the rage ignited in the now permanently disfigured Issa, and the dangerous unrest in his community which is about to boil over. A hero is hard to find in this story, but Stephane is the closest we have. Essentially a good man, his inexperience in his new job render him largely powerless. Actor Damien Bonnard gives a sensitive and effective portrayal as our point-of-view character, and we certainly feel his initial moral outrage, then confusion and fear as events escalate. And he certainly provides a necessary contrast to the utterly toxic Chris, a law enforcer who has sunk below the level of the underworld he polices, in an attempt to survive. But the standout performance is by young Issa Pericca as the injured youth of the same name. His face and apparent humanity contorted by the tragic accident, this slight figure becomes the most terrifying thing about this film full of violent adults. The very final camera shot is likely to stay with you for a long time. Les Misérables has already been adapted twice in the last decade, and numerous times before that. Though this film is set in a key location from the novel, it is also based on actual occurrences of social unrest in 2008. It must have seemed irresistible to simply update Hugo’s original work. But director and co-writer Ladj Ly gives us something more interesting in this challenging story. The diverse groups we encounter within Montfermeil won’t exactly win instant audience sympathy, but only because their outlook has been so hardened by the poverty and corruption they must deal with every day. The elements of Victor Hugo’s novel are certainly there to be found, as the shooting of a child becomes the final motivation which pushes the disadvantaged and dispossessed to social rebellion. And when the infamous barricades from the original story make their chilling appearance, this time built from abandoned shopping trolleys and the detritus of high-rise stairwells, it feels almost inevitable. Les Misérabless is a film which shows why history repeats until society finally can learn from something it. THE GB WEEKLY, FRIDAY 10 JULY 2020

Those who knew her would have been shocked to learn during lockdown that Heather Lamond (nee Ward), former manager of Takaka Memorial Library before Tish Potter, had sadly passed away, aged 47. For her mum Nancy, it was profoundly difficult. Only six people were permitted to attend her service in Palmerston, and no hugs were possible to ease her grief. A memorial farewell is now planned for September at the East Takaka Hall. Heather will be laid to rest, alongside her dad Allen, in the East Takaka cemetery close to her childhood home Heather was only 18 months old when the family arrived from North Otago and bought a farm in East Takaka. As an only girl with three brothers she was always happiest when playing cricket and soccer or being around the farm. She attended Central Takaka School then Golden Bay High School, during which time she helped outside school hours with children’s programmes or sorting issue cards with Nancy at the library. Heather graduated with a BA from Canterbury University and aimed for a teaching career, but instead accepted full-time work as a library assistant at Nelson Polytechnic while studying for her Master of Library Studies by distance learning. Later, disappointed to not find management work, she returned to the Bay to save money to travel, working part time at the Takaka library as well as doing bar work, orchard work and opening scallops. When branch librarian Glennis Coote left two years later in 2001, Heather was delighted to have her application for the job accepted. She regarded this management experience invaluable when in 2005, she and her husband Phil moved north and Heather began work in the much larger Massey University library in Palmerston North. She was initially business liaison librarian before being promoted to head of the Distance Library Service. From 2014 she worked as the university’s assistant librarian in client services. Heather received the Library of Information Association of NZ Aotearoa Award for professional excellence in 2009, and her peers have acknowledged the enormous contribution she made to her profession through her commitment, technological knowledge and superb customer service skills. Country music brought Heather and Phil together. With her parents Nancy and Allen, Heather in her youth travelled to many country music awards, playing guitar and singing, and one year won the original song contest in Blenheim. She and Phil later had their own band.


Onetahua Waka Ama Club has achieved another milestone, reflecting the growing popularity of the sport. On a stormy Sunday the local waka ama club welcomed and blessed their new waka Te Ata Haapara (Breath of Dawn) at Tata beach. A huge crowed turned out for the event enjoying the blessing, waiata and kai on the blustery morning. Following the blessing the sea settled enough for the waka to be lashed together and launched from Tata beach under a haka led by club member Eric Lander. Due to increasing member numbers and a desire to have a waka located in the western part of the Bay a fundraising campaign was undertaken to purchase Te Ata Haapara. In record time, thanks to TDC, NBS Takaka, Fresh Choice, the ladies at Trash Palace, the Lions, the GB Community Trust, Victoria Davies, the kids at Collingwood Area School for their sausage sizzles and many many more the six-person vessel, built by Moananui in the Far north, was purchased. We’re now on the lookout for timber to build a shed out at Aorere Future Trust in Parapara to locate a waka and gear. If you have anything laying around, please contact Kathy Hindmarsh or Andrew Lamason.

Her later interests were many and varied. She was also involved in the Takaka Drama Society, both while at school and afterwards. In recent years she became a keen runner and was also an avid bird-watcher and photographer. She loved music, dancing and concerts; she and best friend Katherine called themselves the “red boot rockers”. Heather lived life brightly and bravely to the end of her fast illness, only 12 months after her diagnosis. Her colleagues describe her as bubbly, energetic and honest, with a heart of gold, an infectious smile, and the ability to bring the best out in everyone whose life she touched. Heather was down-to-earth, and had time for everyone regardless of skill, knowledge and background. “A true country girl,” laments Nancy. “At work, very sophisticated, but when she came home, it was overalls and gumboots and she’d be gone, down the farm. Quoting wellknown country lyrics, she adds, “‘You can take a girl out of the country, but you can’t take country out of the girl’.”

Lottery funds penguin signage JO RICHARDS

Thanks to the Lottery Environment and Heritage Fund, little blue penguins at the eastern end of Golden Bay will soon be able to waddle more safely across the road. The Mohua (Golden Bay) Blue Penguin Trust, the recipient of the $25,000 grant, intends to spend the money on positioning active traffic management signs in Pohara and Ligar Bay. Installation and maintenance costs will be covered by Tasman District Council. This latest project is just one of several initiatives that the trust has either on the go or in the planning stage. While awaiting the arrival of the active signs, trust chair Cynthia McConville spent last Thursday overseeing the installation of 18 passive signs at popular beaches along Golden Bay’s coastline, from Rangihaeata to Puponga. At Parapara, students from the homeschool group came out to help position the new sign. Cynthia says that many individuals and organisations have come forward to help the trust – in all sorts of ways. “The trust has paid for the [passive] signs – and for their installation – thanks to a generous donor. And we are very grateful for the support of Tasman District Council and the Department of Conservation in raising awareness of the presence of our little blues.” The trust hopes its efforts will help to stem the species’ decline. Once common in the Bay, little blue penguins are subject to a wide range of coastal development-related pressures, including destruction of nesting sites, dog attacks, being hit by vehicles, drowned in set nets and struck by boats at sea. To provide the penguins with secure homes, the trust makes and installs wooden nesting boxes. Adult birds come ashore between May and June to prepare their nests, often under houses, boat sheds and wood piles – and now increasingly in the trust’s specially designed boxes. Cynthia explains that more than 100 boxes have been installed on the arms of Port Tarakohe, but says some of these will be replaced in October after the current nesting season. “We plan to replace 57 with research boxes with lifting lids so the penguins can be monitored.” The monitoring will form part of an ongoing study and provide opportunities for the Bay’s young scientists. “The research the trust is planning to do will be part of a community science project, which will involve our children and their schools,” says Cynthia. “We are in the process of producing an Ph:0273950037 0273950037 Ph: goldenbayroofing@yahoo.com goldenbayroofing@yahoo.com www.goldenbayroofing.co.nz www.goldenbayroofing.co.nz

Hector’s and Māui dolphins – new protection measures

educational resource that can be used with children of all ages from primary through to high school.” As an appreciation of their charm grows, Cynthia believes that the little blue penguins’ nests at Tarakohe could become a focus for “deep green” ecotourism. “We hope to have a penguinviewing room on the western arm of the port, with one-way glass so people can see the penguin nests below.” It’s another example of the trust realising its visions of increasing awareness and helping to protect this unique species. They may be flightless birds, but little blue penguins are really taking off in Golden Bay.




New fisheries measures to support the Threat Management Plan for Hector’s and Māui dolphins, come into effect on 1 October. In the South Island, the new measures will restrict commercial and recreational set-net fishing off the north, south, and east coasts. These include new closures out to four nautical miles offshore within Golden and Tasman Bay, from Farewell Spit to Cape Soucis (see map). Hector’s and Māui dolphins are only found in New Zealand waters and together are one of the world’s rarest dolphin species. While Māui, which are confined to the upper west coast of the North Island, are close to extinction, Hector’s are classified as nationally vulnerable. Found in Golden Bay, Hector’s are easily identified; they are grey with black and white markings, a short snout and a rounded black dorsal fin. They are also small; adults rarely exceed 1.5m in length and typically weigh less than 60kg. The threats to this species are those common to most marine mammals and include fishing, disease, oil and gas exploration, boat strike, mining, tourism and noise. Although extensive measures are already in place to reduce fishing-related threats, the Government has decided that more protection is needed and that is why the new measures are being introduced. For commercial and recreational fishers, the measures are likely to have a notable impact in the Nelson-Tasman region where there are currently few restrictions on the use of set nets.

Council and Doc reserves need their trees. Trees provide erosion control, habitat for wildlife and shelter too. We are deeply concerned some folk have decided chopping these down for firewood is okay. It is not. Police are now involved and written warning are to be issued. Charges will be laid if this practice continues. This is a known penguin nesting site. Not only on the reserves – some are stealing from private land too! THE GB WEEKLY, FRIDAY 10 JULY 2020
