Conﬂict over Lyttelton’s draft plan Tom Doudney
A COMMUNITY meeting in Lyttelton last week showed widespread public opposition to Christchurch City Council’s draft plan for the rebuild of the town centre, according to the Lyttelton Harbour Information Centre. The council has undertaken masterplanning in Lyttelton as a key pilot project in its suburban centres programme. However the information centre and several other local organisations have called for the council to work in partnership with the community rather than just consult. According to a bulletin released by the information centre, entitled Thumbs down to Lyttelton Master plan more than 100 people attended the
meeting. The bulletin said they “unanimously supported the motion to reject the draft master plan, and further, to prevent it from being presented to the Christchurch City Council next week”. However, Lyttelton Mt Herbert Community Board chairperson Paula Smith said there had been no vote or show of hands taken at the meeting. “The board got the impression that there was widespread dissatisfaction with the masterplan to date but as I understand it, it’s for a number of different reasons.” Mrs Smith said that while some had been unhappy with the masterplanning process and wanted it stopped, others only
had issues over some of the draft plan’s content. With it already having been sent to council, the best thing for residents with concerns to do now was to express them via the submissions process once the draft plan was released for consultation. The information centre’s bulletin also noted that Banks Peninsula councillor Claudia Reid “was absent from this pivotal community meeting”. Cr Reid said she had been unable to attend the meeting as the central city draft plan was currently “an all-consuming task” for councillors, while there would be plenty of time ahead to discuss Lyttelton’s draft plan which was only in its early stages.
Calls to reject the Lyttelton draft plan were premature as the public had not yet seen it and it had already been heavily modiﬁed since the last round of public feedback in July. “The plan has not been ﬁnalised or made available. To give it a thumbs down before it has even been seen or considered is a disgraceful example of self-serving political manoeuvring.” If council decides to approve the draft plan for consultation at tomorrow’s meeting, it will be released to the public in midNovember, with a consultation period of three weeks. A summary will be delivered to all houses in Lyttelton and adjacent communities.

Container art strikes a positive note
Christine de Felice
THE containers lined up beneath Sumner’s crumbling rock faces may be deterring people from visiting the usually popular seaside suburb, but a community initiative is set to change that by turning the negative aspect of these into a positive through art. Local graphic designer Dinesh Patel of Spiralvista Graphic Design came up with the idea of using the row of double-stacked containers at Peacock’s Gallop for displaying community images. Sumner artist and gallery owner Bryan L’Estrange, who joined forces with Mr Patel as art curator for the project, expanded on the idea by deciding to make it an art exhibition featuring leading artists. Support for the idea has been overwhelming, Mr L’Estrange said. “We want to display works by leading New Zealand artists,” Mr L’Estrange said. “We are taking submissions from artists from all over New ZeaSanctuary by Tony Cribb. land.

Saying goodbye to Stuart and Lucy Routledge Christine de Felice
THE Sumner community was left without two of its most dedicated and hard-working volunteers when Lucy and Stuart Routledge were tragically killed on a bus in the February 22 earthquake. Close friend and neighbour Nicola Wood said the couple had a â€œhuge history of volunteering at the RSA and the community swimming poolâ€? and this had continued right up to the time of their death. â€œItâ€™s a big, big loss,â€? Ms Wood said. The couple emigrated from England in 1975, moved to their home in Wakefield Street Sumner, and had lived there ever since. The house was badly damaged in the quake and was red-stickered and the garden they loved is a total mess, Ms Wood said. â€œIt was a good thing that they didnâ€™t see the devastation from the earthquake, and it was also good
that they went together. One would never have lasted without the other.â€? The Routledges had no children and no close relatives in New Zealand. â€œStuart had two nephews in the UK and Lucy had a second cousin in Australia,â€? Ms Wood said. Recently a memorial bench for the couple was commissioned with support from their family members. Sumner couple Jane and Ken Jones, owners of Placemakers in Cranford Street, donated the materials for the bench, which has been placed in Dryden Street, near the community pool. To celebrate the lives of Lucy and Stuart Routledge, who were born just 10 days apart in January 1937 and died together in February 2011, the Sumner Community Pool committee will be holding a brief ceremony on Saturday, October 29 at 3pm in Dryden Street, opposite the KidsFirst
FREE POST QUAKE TREE CHECKS
Stronger voice for Sumner residents THE Sumner community will have a stronger voice, thanks to the merging of two groups â€“ the Sumner Residentsâ€™ Association and the Sumner Community Group. The merger was unanimously agreed on at the Sumner Residentsâ€™ Associationâ€™s AGM held on October 11. Founder of the Sumner Community Group, Marnie Kent, said combining the two groups would make it easier to apply for funding, and also reduce the confusion of two groups being in the community. â€œThe Sumner Community Group was formed since the earthquake by people keen to make positive and proactive change for Sumner, and non-incorporated, which meant we were limited in applying for funding,â€? Miss Kent said. â€œIt has built up so much positive momentum, itâ€™s been a big success. Now with the merger we can move forward and address community issues. Itâ€™s exciting times. Weâ€™re very excited to be bringing our community closer together and providing positive activities in Sumner.â€? These could include events, supporting groups, a local food project and time bank and an environment group working on dune restoration, Miss Kent said.
Kindergarten. Close friends of the couple are invited to take part and share memories of their contribution to the community. â€œIt will be an opportunity for their friends to say goodbye,â€? Ms Wood said. â€œTheir ashes will be buried in the pool garden and next to the memorial bench. People will be able to sit there in the sun and remember them.â€? Anybody that needs transport or wants further information can phone Nicola Wood on 326 3017.

New road layout clears up confusion CONFUSION over whom should give way and when at the intersection of Oxford and Ripon streets in Lyttelton is being cleared up with a new road layout. In the existing situation all road users are required to give way to their right, but are not doing so. Most of the traffic moves along Oxford Street and turns right into Ripon Street, or turns left from Ripon Street into
Oxford Street. With the new layout, the priority of the right hand rule will be much clearer, without the need for Give Way or Stop controls to be installed. The new layout is expected to be in place by the end of this month, and temporary traffic management signage ‘New Road Layout’ will be in place for one month following installation.

First of the season: The Sea Princess at anchor in Akaroa harbour
Cruise ships keep Canterbury businesses ticking CAT VACCINATIONS & ANNUAL CHECK-UP ONLY $52.00 DOG VACCINATIONS & ANNUAL CHECK-UP ONLY $59.00
Christine de Felice AKAROA has become the cruise capital of Canterbury this season, taking over from Lyttelton, which is currently closed to cruise ships following the earthquakes. The first ship, the Sea Princess, arrived on October 12, bringing 1900 people into the French-themed town, with almost a quarter of them heading off on tours. “The weather was perfect and apart from a couple of hiccups it all went very well,” executive office of Akaroa District Promotions Hollie Hollander said. “There was some congestion with buses near the wharf area and some complaints about fumes, but they’re all things we can improve on. From now on the buses will be parked at the recreation grounds.” The Sea Princess was the first of around 80 ships due to visit the port this season, which will be good for Canterbury, Miss Hollander said. “We want to keep them in Canterbury. It’s good for local operators. If the ships were not coming to the region those operators would miss out.” Local businesses had a good day too, with many cruise ship visitors enjoying walking around the town, Miss Hollander said. A free loop shuttle service, which
was provided in partnership with Christchurch and Canterbury Tourism and the Christchurch airport, also worked very well, she said. Several other initiatives have been introduced for the season. A group of beret-clad local volunteers are acting as ambassadors, giving out maps to visitors, a portable cabin has been set up on the wharf where people can book tours, and extra toilets have been provided. “There are a lot more tours available this season. Lots of tour operators from Christchurch have jumped on board and are paying the membership fee to be listed on our website,” Miss Hollander said. “A lot of cruise ship visitors are going on to our website and booking tours before they get here. They are getting more internet savvy and we are seeing increased visits to our site.” Lyttelton will become the main cruise port again next season, Miss Hollander said. “This is just temporary until Lyttelton gets back It is not so straightforward for passengers to come ashore here – the crew has to bring them in from the ship on a tender. But we hope Akaroa will become a future boutique destination for some cruise ships.”

Students bring art to Harbour Light site A NEW light sculpture installed at the Harbour Light site on London Street has given Lyttelton residents and visitors something to enjoy and think about. The ‘Act of Art’ was created by a group of students from the University of Canterbury’s College of Business and Economics. The students, Alan Povall, Kelly Gin, Nathan Barclay, Afiq Razin Ong and Tom Rosanowski, have been working closely with Trent Hiles (co-ordinator of the Act of Art/Gap Filler initiative) to create the project for the Lyttelton community. As part of their principles of leadership course the students Thought-provoking: The new light sculpture on were required to choose and work the Harbour Light site. closely with a local community group.

Learning about indigenous cultures TEN weeks of creativity by senior students at Our Lady Star of the Sea school culminated in their presentations on the survival of indigenous cultures throughout the world, which they displayed at school on October 5. The students were required to produce a cardboard display board answering a variety of questions regarding their indigenous tribes. They had to construct useful items like those that were used by the people they were depicting, such as musical instruments and hunting tools. Every student created a unique craft and tribal dish to share with parents and fellow students. The next exciting event on the Our Lady Star of the Sea calendar is the Mission Day Fair.

Girls show their football skills
Aaron's Surf Report
Surfers enjoying spring conditions
DANI Ward, left, and Britneylee Nicholson, both from Redcliffs, and Mia Daniell-Cook, right, from Sumner have been selected for the New Zealand National Talent Centre of Football. This is a programme/pathway for selected players to work towards playing in the U17 World Cup girls’ team, the New Zealand women’s team, and potentially gain a scholarship in the United States. The girls attended their first training programme last week in Oamaru. Earlier this year Mia and Britney, both 11 years-old, were selected for the Canterbury School of Football U14s and won the league, while Dani, who is 10 years old, played for Ferrymead Bays U12s coached by Gary Ward.
It’s been a typically changeable spring weather pattern in the past month with cold and wet one day and warm and windy the next. The water is slowly warming up and is sitting about 12º C at the moment, so a little colder than average for this time of year, but it’s been great to ditch the booties. There have been some great days in the surf with some nice north swell pushing onto Taylors and other local beaches. Scarborough beach was pumping one Sunday with heaps of people out there despite the health warnings. The Canterbury Scholastic Surf Team surfed their way to the region’s best result ever, placing second overall at the National Scholastic Surfing Champs in Ahipara during the school holidays. There were several local surfers on the team and many gained some amazing individual results with Harrison Whiteside (Redcliffs) winning the U14 boys title, Kristi Zarifeh (Sumner) winning the U18 girls title and good friend Alethea Lock(Sumner) placing runner-up. Max Marshall (Taylors) made the semifinals in the U14 boys. The groms enjoyed pumping waves over the week in the far north and the warm water was a real treat after a long Christchurch winter. The South Island grom series is set to

kick off again this summer. The threeevent series is for all surfers under 16 years of age keen to get into surfing competitions for the first time. The first event will be at New Brighton on November 11. Go to www.sisa.co.nz for more details. The Hyundai national longboarding series has been announced and kicks off at Raglan in January 2012. Unfortunately there are no South Island events on the five-event series but I’m sure many local longboarders will be travelling north to contest the series next year. The water-quality situation is still good at most city beaches; New Brighton, Sumner (west of Cave Rock) and Taylors Mistake are all open. Frustratingly, Scarborough beach is still temporarily closed due to a broken pipe on Scarborough hill. The council said a repair should only take two weeks to complete, but that was five weeks ago and work doesn’t seem to have even started yet. Hopefully they get it sorted out soon because it’s starting to drag on. The water always warms quickly through November so by the end of the month we should be getting into some nice summer-type waves and more good little north swells. See you out there.

New vessel for ﬁshing ﬂeet launched A NEW fishing vessel built by Lyttelton company Stark Bros for Ocean Fisheries has had its first foray into the harbour, prior to its official launch in early December, when its name will be released. The vessel is similar to the Stark designed and built FV Jubilee, which was launched in 2008. It has a Scania DI1259M engine, driving a Hundested Marine Gear CPG-32 9.05:1 gearbox with a Hundested variable pitch 1800mm diameter. This higher gear ratio and larger propeller running in a fixed nozzle should provide the vessel with significant fuel savings over the previous vessels, Stark Bros chief executive Andrew Stark said. “The electronics package will also sport the new WASSP system from Electronic Navigation, which we are convinced will be an excellent additional tool for the skipper to increase catch efficiency.” The 16.8-metre vessel’s trawl winches,

Mr Turner says. â€œFrom 60 or so businesses that were in operaon before the February quake there are fewer than 20 now.â€? But even with the devastaon to the town and the economic impact on the community, businesses are geng back on their feet, which is

A vision to nourish and nurture customers with great food and a warm friendly service was the aim behind Freemans Dining Room, which was opened in Lyelton by Sarah and Nick Freeman in April 2006. Nick has cooked all over the world and spent a large poron of his career in exclusive London restaurants such as cecconis and Le Pont de la Tour on the river Thames. The Freemansâ€™ philosophy on food is about keeping it simple with locally sourced fresh food and quality ingredients. The enre team is passionate about great customer service and has built a strong following of loyal customers over the years. On February 22 the Freemans that everyone had grown to love was badly damaged by the earthquake, but the biggest blessing, says Sarah, was that all the team were safe. The eight-month journey then began to rebuild Freemans with the work starng in August and, with the landlordsâ€™ assistance, the restaurant will re-open at the end of November. â€œThe future for Freemans is excing,â€? says Sarah Freeman. â€œWe love Lyelton and we especially love the people and the community. Our business is successful because of the people who support us week aer week.â€? Despite the devastaon of the earthquake, there was an opportunity for Nick and Sarah to make some changes. The restaurant will be open seven days with a new pizza oven. The kitchen

A DIVERSITY of talented artists from Lyttelton Harbour, Banks Peninsula and Christchurch will be sharing their skills and knowledge at Orton Bradley Park in November. Dubbed Art in the Park, it will be the second such event at Orton Bradley â€“ the first was in March. Run as a weekend of workshops tutored by the artists, it will focus not only on creative expression, but will also have three other aims, organiser Trent Hiles said. These are, continuing to develop the park as an â€˜arts spaceâ€™, nurturing a sense of community through creativity, and raising funds to help sustain Orton Bradley Park. The workshops will include colour mixing and tree wrapping, and drawing and card making with experienced art teacher Judy Rogers. Gunter Dehne will tutor a workshop in drum making. A harbour basin local, Mr Dehne teaches technology and craftwork at Rudolf Steiner School. For the independent land sculpture workshop on Saturday and/or Sunday, participants will have the opportunity to create a work in an area of their choosing. The range of terrain and materials at Orton Bradley Park offers many opportunities for participants to create a unique piece, Mr Hiles said. Stacey Moana Smith will tutor workshops in kokowai - earth paint and korowai - preparation for cloak weaving. A skilled artist, Ms Smith is of Ngapuhi and Ngati Kahu

descent and is currently living on Banks Peninsula. Stitcher, fabric dyer and quilter Sue-Ellen Sandilands will tutor a â€˜lyttel stitcherâ€™ postcards workshop, while Rowena Hart will tutor in mosaic art. A textile artist and teacher who has worked in Japan and the United States, Ms Hart is now based in Ashburton and Diamond Harbour. Melanie Riley, an art teacher with a special interest in printing will tutor printing in the park. Before the earthquake she was teaching art classes at CoCA Art Gallery in Christchurch. Tutors Toni Rowe and Chih Chen will take a workshop in raranga flax weaving. Ms Rowe has been weaving harakeke for over 10 years. Chen, a talented weaver of harakeke who originates from Taiwan, ran the first Art in the Park raranga workshop.
Tutor Caine Tauwhare, head carver at Whakaraupo Carving Centre, will be running the whakairo rakau - wood carving workshop. In keeping with Maori tradition this workshop is for males only. Marijke Lups will take the wire/ bead jewellery making workshops. This activity is suitable for ages 10 years and up so is ideal for family participation. Organiser Mr Hiles, a Lytteltonbased artist, will facilitate a wood sculpting/carving workshop for women. Art in the Park will run on Saturday and Sunday November 26-27. In addition to the workshops, a music picnic event, featuring Lloyd and Doublet, will be held on the Sunday. For more information and to register for any of the workshops go to www.obpartspace.co.nz.

Discussion: Community consultation on the Sumner cohesion in the emergency transcended into planets of activities under the umbrella name of Sumner Community Group. Their most prominent activity has been the work of the Urban Design Group, which comprises several locals who have the professional urban design qualifications to translate the community’s wishes for their village into plans and conceptual drawings. The group has presented to and consulted with their own community (fortnightly) as well as drawing on appropriate outside technical expertise – universities,

urban architect consultants, traffic engineers, geotechnical engineers and landscape designers. And in June the plan was recognised for support by the Christchurch City Council. The final cherry-on-the-top of recognition for the Sumner Community Groups’ activities came when the vote was put at the Sumner Residents’ Association that both groups should merge. It was passed unanimously. Islay McCleod is deputy chair of the Hagley Ferrymead Community Board
Shellﬁsh - food from the sea and ecosystem engineers WORLDWIDE, shellfish beds have been depleted and those in estuaries are potentially endangered marine habitats. Shellfish include crabs, crayfish, bivalves, sea urchins and snails that are gathered or cultured in the sea. Locally, we have large beds of shellfish – tuatua in Pegasus Bay, mussels on Banks Peninsula, as well as oysters, pipi and cockles in estuaries and harbours. Shellfish beds are affected by sea lettuce, exposed to toxic algal blooms and more recently have been disturbed by the earthquakes and contaminated by accidental sewage spills. Nevertheless, shellfish can often survive, recover and provide valuable ecosystem services. Bivalve shellfish such as mussels, pipi and cockles are filter feeders and act as biofilters and improve water quality. They form stable beds, acting as ecosystem engineers building habitats and encouraging other organisms to settle. They help to recycle the nutrients within the sediments and are food for predators. Paddlecrabs feed on small shellfish on sand beaches and ambush large bivalves under the sand surface. Birds have specialist ways to find, capture and feed on bivalves. Have you watched black-backed gulls feeding on tuatua? They paddle through the water at low tide looking for the weed-like hydroids attached to the shell. Once detected the shellfish is seized then lifted out of the sand high into the air, to be dropped onto the sand for breaking. At this point there is usually a squabble among the birds over ownership. At low tide in the Avon-Heathcote Ihutai Estuary/ Ihutai, oyster catchers feed in the channels using their strong beaks to first detect, then lift, open and finally swallow the shellfish flesh. If you are collecting shellfish as bait or eating, do not collect if there are signs displayed saying that the shellfish are unsuitable for eating, and please remember there is a daily limit for collecting shellfish on all beaches. Islay Marsden is a trustee of the Ihutai Trust Note: The author of the previous article from Ihutai Trust, Crabs fussy where they live, was Ann Kennedy

THE biggest issue on the Sumner Residents’ Association’s agenda last year was progress on the installation of tsunami warning sirens previously promised by the mayor of Christchurch. What a difference a year makes. I cheerfully attended that meeting as a newly elected Hagley Ferrymead Community Board member. On Tuesday, October 11 this year, I attended the association’s AGM, again held in the lounge of the Sumner Volunteer Fire Station and the only consideration of any siren was the din when their siren went off. The hot topic for all members this year was the proposed merger of the Sumner Residents’ Association and the Sumner Community Group. This time last year, the latter didn’t exist. But the February 22 earthquake forced the realisation that, in a major disaster, communities have to be prepared to be self-reliant. Sumner was only one of many communities to comprehend that emergency services were immediately occupied with rescue and that help and support would have to be largely self-directed. But in Sumner, the community’s
