Competition and commitment to soccer have paid off for three young Raglan girls who’ve just made it into Waikato’s representative soccer teams.

Burger Shack Organic. Takeaway. 35 Bow St................................................................825 8117

Emma Blaikie, 10, and Scarlett Sullivan, 8 – who have been with the local club for about two years now – will both play for Waikato’s under-10 girls’ team while Mair Young, who soon turns 11, will play for the under-12s. Although Mair currently plays for Claudelands Rovers, she turned out for the local club for about five years and this is her third time as a rep player. It’s very competitive and a “huge commitment” to make it into the rep sides, says soccer mum and committee member Amanda Sullivan who instigated this year’s nominations through the club. The girls, she adds, were up against some tough competition in the trials of more than 60 young players leading up to selection for the final teams. As well as playing their regular Saturday morning club games, the girls travel to other matches outside the Waikato every third Sunday to pit their skills against the best from other areas. Two other local players – Kane Roberts, 9, and Matthew Hill, 12 – also trialled for the boys’ rep teams. Edith Symes

Critics worn down by long business park battle In a just released draft structure plan the council has plumped for the controversial Nau Mai business park – located on rural land opposite the Okete turnoff closest to town and within easy view of new lifestyle subdivisions – as its strategic site for new industry in Raglan. Critics say the choice of the Tasman Lands-owned site over several other locations confirms their earlier claims the process has been a “fait accompli” from the outset, and believe it would be pointless and another waste of their time to put in more submissions at an upcoming hearing of an application for land use and subdivision consent for the State Highway 23 site. Former neighbour, Gareth Bellamy, says he’s bitterly disappointed for the community, particularly adjacent lifestylers and other landowners about town who have been “waiting for years” to have their proposed sites considered as part of the Raglan structure plan process. “There’s nothing much you can do,” says Gareth, who’s now shifted into town. “It’s preordained and there’s no surprise whatsoever.” Gareth insists that from the moment farmer-cum-developer Bob Carter signed up to buy the Nau Mai block supposedly to extend his farm – he won resource consent some years back but only to “improve the farming productivity of the land”– he moved in the bulldozers and began having discussions with council officials to develop the site industrially. A neighbour who’s stuck it out alongside Nau Mai sees it as a classic David and Goliath situation, where critics have to go into bat against the “big guys”. The neighbour, who has consistently declined to be named for professional reasons, believes the process has been questionable. She asks if this is really where the people of Raglan want their industry sited, and claims there has never been satisfactory consultation. Another neighbour, Petra Yorke, says she has no comment other than that “I am disappointed … it’s a waste of breath. I put 200 per cent (effort) in and got shat on. What

can I do? I am going to keep my energy for my kids and my life.”

Meanwhile, Raglan West landowner, Martin Koning, believes light industry should be sited closer to town but concedes “they’ve made their mind up”. He thinks plumping for the Nau Mai site is a mistake and says he has two better sites of his own, the best in Wainui Road by the oxidisation ponds and the other up by the “dump”. He doesn’t like Nau Mai’s location by the highway and in a gully, and also sees the proposed business park as “very unfair on all those people [neighbours]”. However he accepts that he’s on the wrong side of town and through-traffic is a potential problem, even though a major bypass is on the cards.

Nau Mai hearing dates July 21-23

The next stage in the Nau Mai saga is a hearing set down for July 21-23, when commissioner Phil Mitchell will consider an application for land use and subdivision consent at the Tasman Lands site. Because Waikato District Council has declared its colours and is backing the planned variation to the district plan – in response to Raglan’s perceived employment land shortage – an independent commissioner is required to avoid any potential for conflict of interest.

Whaingaroa Environmental Defence, which is due to meet next Tuesday to discuss the draft structure plan, is another opponent of the proposed re-zoning of the SH23 site for industry, favouring a currently residentialzoned Greenslade Road site just off the highway. There is too much residential land zoned for Raglan, says WED secretary John Lawson who suggests the Greenslade Road area as an alternative. There is no need, he adds, to “designate more rural land for development”.

Bob Carter has previously defended Nau Mai as fulfilling a real need in Raglan and allowing young people to do more than “brew coffee and shape surfboards”. However he declined to comment further this week in the light of renewed criticism, saying his critics have been “milking it” now for fourand-a-half years. His plans also have strong backing from the likes of Community Board chairperson Peter Storey and Waikato deputy mayor Clint Baddeley, who is on the record as insisting a light industrial site on the east side of town is 20 years’ overdue. The new structure plan, in a staff report, notes the only existing industrial activities occupy what it terms “poorly located premises within the residential area and face continued pressures in terms of managing their effects on local communities”. The report says the Nau Mai location “offers the advantage of capturing industrial investment and labour market growth that might otherwise necessitate travel to more distant employment locations”.

Bitterly disappointed critics of a proposed industrial site at the gateway to Raglan have conceded defeat over what they say has been a charade played out over several years by the developer and Waikato District Council.

But the “poorly located” tag doesn’t sit well with existing pockets of industry like that in Raglan’s Park Drive. Peter Williams of Raglan Engineering points out that a lot of his work these days is with locals popping in for new tyres or other comparatively minor work. He doesn’t believe his customers – or those wanting panelbeating or work done on the kitchen – will want to have to travel six kilometres out of town.

Peter’s been working at the old Hartstones’ factory for more than three decades now, and points out it’s been there since 1946. He says it was just four years ago that he had to fight to stay where he was under a district plan review, and now all the uncertainty is back again.


However longtime local and neighbouring resident, Celia Risbridger, says the property was originally Hartstones’ home with a backyard workshop only. She – like her neighbours Wendy and Dave Cordiner who are currently overseas – would welcome the proposed zoning change from industrial to living.

Raglan movie update

The Third Sunday Movie at the Old School Arts Centre this month will be ‘Coco Chanel and Igor Stravinsky’, a must see follow up for anyone who saw ‘Coco Avant Chanel’, but well worth seeing even if you didn’t. The film covers the period when Coco Chanel (played by Anna Mouglalis) became Stravinsky’s artistic benefactor, befriending the great composer and his family, and of course there were rumours of an affair. A portrait of a fearless modern woman attracted to an equally indomitable man, and an insight into their worlds of design and music. Two showings on Sunday 18th, at 4pm and 7pm.

Saved by a feline smoke alarm A cat called Oscar alerted two families to a potentially catastrophic van fire on Monday night.

out of the way of buildings and Gun’s boat. “The boat was full of fuel, “says Dawn. “If that had gone up then our house would have gone up too.”

Oscar’s owners, Dawn and Lyle Taylor who live next door to the Hong Kitchen Kitchen on Bow Street, were settled in for the evening when the moggy’s persistent meowing from outside the house prompted Dawn to stick her head outside the back door. Dawn said she had smelt smoke in her kitchen before Oscar sent up his cries but initially through it was coming from their wood burner. However opening the back door she saw “plumes of smoke pouring over the fence.”

The Raglan Fire Brigade was quickly on the scene and took around 20 minutes to bring the fire under control.

Lyle rushed next door to discover Gun Lai’s van ablaze. While Dawn called the fire brigade Lyle alerted the Lai family to the fire. He then raced back home to get his own car to tow the van

It was a lucky escape for both families. The Lai’s had only minutes before arrived back home from a trip to Hamilton. The van was switched off when it caught alight and while nobody knows exactly what caused the fire a leaking oil hose could be to blame. Dawn is in no doubt that her alert tabby is the hero in this story. “Oscar saved the day,” she says. Emma Brooks

THANK YOU RAGLAN A big thanks to everyone for allowing me to represent Raglan on the Waikato District Council for the past six years. It has been a pleasure, a challenge That’s why I’m also putting my name down to be and a personal responsibility to your Raglan ward councillor again, should I miss out. champion Raglan. I’m proud of what has been achieved and I believe I have been a very effective advocate for you. I acknowledge the Raglan Community Board for its solid contribution and all those in our community who continue make a significant difference to our town. Our many volunteers commit thousands of hours to ensure we remain the unique township we are. Since becoming a district councillor, I have worked hard to convince my council colleagues that Raglan deserved greater attention. And the results are evident in and around town.

We’ve seen: • Completion of the rugby complex and tennis courts, • Upgrade of the main entrances to the business centre, • Upgrade to Manu Bay, • Development of the Cliff Street boardwalk, • Completion of waste water project and associated infrastructure upgrades, • First stage of development of main road entrance to town, • Preparation for the new museum and information centre, • Support and funding for skateboard park, • New children’s park in Raglan West (Oram Park), • On-going support for arts in Raglan, • Championing a structure plan that preserves the character of Raglan for the future. You will know that I’ve served not only as your Raglan ward councillor but in an additional role as deputy Mayor for the last three years. Mayor Peter Harris is retiring, and I have been asked to stand for this important role. On this basis, I seek your support in October. I will be asking you to give me two ticks … one for Mayor, and the second tick as your Raglan ward councillor. Voters elsewhere around the district may well vote for another Mayoral candidate.

Authorised by Clint Baddeley,16 Main Road, Raglan.

What this means is that if I’m elected Mayor, then Raglan will get a new councillor, because the next candidate will move into the role. This way, Raglan will get two strong voices around the council table which it has never had before. I think that’s an exciting possibility. One of the issues we need to start thinking about is what will happen to Raglan if Hamilton pushes ahead with the idea of a “super council” over the next three years. There’s been no real debate yet, nor any information, and I will be watching closely what happens to Auckland’s super city. But when the time comes to possibly consider a Waikato super council over the next three years, I want to make sure that Raglan is not disadvantaged in any way. As we come nearer to the election (voting papers will be delivered from Friday September 17), I am always available to meet with you. To contact me please call 825 8194. Thank you again and I hope I can count on your support. Sincerely, Clint PS: For Raglan Chronicle readers relatively new to Raglan my wife Jackie, who is a senior manager with St John Ambulance in Hamilton, and I have lived here for nearly 40 years. My background is in the trades. For 12 years I was an industrial advocate working and negotiating with most of New Zealand’s big companies. I’m a government appointed member and deputy chair of the Waikato Community Trust, a $240 million trust that distributes up to $6 million a year to community groups throughout the region. I’ve served on the council of the Waikato Institute of Technology for the past 11 years, nine as deputy chairman, and led a $58 million campus redevelopment. In my spare time, I have a music show an on-air presenter on Raglan Community Radio.

Frankton is an historic part of Hamilton largely due to it once housing a major New Zealand railway station, Frankton Junction. Frankton Junction was the creation of an astute landowner, Thomas Jolly, who persuaded New Zealand Railways in 1877 to build the north island main trunk line through his swampy property west of Hamilton. Frankton subsequently became the largest railway junction in the North Island. In the hey day of rail travel

the junction was a bustling , vibrant hub of community life. In the 1920s, due to a shortage of housing and a large transient working population, New Zealand Railways undertook a unique housing scheme for the railway workforce. One hundred and sixty houses, prefabricated at the Frankton housing factory, were built by 1928. Access to rail transport attracted other industries, including a sawmill, butter and box factory, bacon factory, stock saleyards, and numerous small manufacturing enterprises. The

shops, hostels, sports fields, community halls, churches, and pubs were within walking distance, and Frankton became a self-contained industrial working class community. Following corporatization of the railways by the New Zealand government in the 1980s, the railway houses were sold, and most of the original railway workforce now live elsewhere in the city and region. The railway houses still stand proudly and

many owners have preserved the original character making these attractive streets unique to Frankton. Source: Returning history to the community: oral history in a museum setting by Anna Green

These days, Frankton has a large range of shops including banks and a post office. Forlongs a large format department store is surrounded by shops of all types. There are a number of good second hand stores if you like to browse well stocked shops for vintage pieces and clothing bargains. There are specialty shops including Indian spices, Model and Hobby suppliers and cake stores. There is ample parking and often you get a park right outside your destination. After talking to many Business owners, many who are owner operaters it really is apparent how much they like operating out of Frankton, “it has that community feel, rent is affordable and the streets are busy”.

The famous Saturday morning market is welcomed by most businesses in Frankton as it attracts up to 2000 more visitors to the area that day bringing vibrancy and life to the street as the important railway junction of Frankton did so many years ago. For those travelling into Hamilton from Raglan, Frankton is a convenient stop off point to get some jobs done, have a bite to eat, and soak up the culture of a unique community.

KiaidoRyu Martial Arts Raglan - Thames Gradings

Raglan Future Ferns Netball had another very successful year, 30 girls from surrounding schools Raglan Area, Te Uku and Te Mata attended a 11 week skills based program. This program sets the girls up with the necessary training to play netball for their respective schools at competition level.

We had fifteen students who went for there next belt on the day and they all did amazing jobs, I’m really proud of you all! The gradings involved the students displaying everything they have learned, covering Kata, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu ground fighting, Aikido take downs, Arnis stick fighting, and Bo staff Kata, and of course fitness as well. Yellow Belt to Orange Belt: Adam Brooks, James Kingi-Campbell, Tim Moanaroa Orange Belt to Blue Belt: Aram Higgins, Casey Cockram, Hannah Mays, Hemi Ormsby, John Hartman, Maureen Stockman, Michael Anderson, Nathan Ellis, Richard Mays, Samuel Lowe, Shahn Ellis, Zion Brunton You guys all deserve your new ranks as you have worked really hard to obtain them, well done! Also a big thanks to Richard Mays at “TECHIE 2 U� who’s computer IT business sponsored us for our first Grappling mat, and also to Alan Lovegrove down at Raglan United Video who helped us out with getting our Kick Pads. Thanks guys, you rock! To all my students who continue to put in the hard yards and train your butts off here in Rags, well done and I’m proud of you all!


We would like to publicly thank Malcolm Cox and the Raglan Area School for the use of the school facilities and thanks to the Coaches - Teresa, Rochelle , Sue and Hinemoa.

I just want to say, huge congratulations to all of my students who graded in Thames last Saturday!

RAGLAN Chronicle 11

Raglan make semi finals Both Raglan senior Rugby teams have made their respective semi Finals of the Mooloo Shield. But.

Both these games are definitely winnable with our teams proving to be competitive .

through a simple lack of discipline in the second half. Too many personnel changes disrupted a strong first half showing by our guys and with the Teams split going into the make or break round, the Bs will have no excuse not to put a structured performance on the field. Boys,. there is a point to prove here. . We can beat Kereone , it showed last week, and it is time to bring out the big commitment ethos and play for your Brothers and the loyal supporters who have followed you all season.

The Bs lost to Kereone last week

I’m sure all of Raglan wish you

They play different teams this year in two different locations. Senior As have a home semi against Frankton and the senior Bs travel once again to Campbell Park in Morrinsville to play Kereone.

well , this years team can do it !. Go hard the Bs.! The A team let themselves down with not completing the little things on Saturday like losing the ball in the contact. The forwards did well and dominated their opponants,especially at set piece time. Even though we scored more tries, when Kereone got space they made it count enough to score and their fullback had a good day with the boot which made the points difference. to 21 to 15. In the scheme of things this was a tough day at the office for us,

Raglan Junior Rugby With the players having been starved of any game time lately due to the shocking wet weather and cancellation, players were stoked to actually get a game in on Saturday with the results reflecting how hungry the players were. Again, there were many locals, not just parents on the sidelines cheering on the teams and we think that is awesome. Nice one Raglan!!

Unfortunately, there is no junior rugby over the next couple of weeks with the school holidays here (“aaarrgh” some will say), but tis’ the season for colds and flu so the break could be seen as quite timely. Josef Meek (Raglan Area School) and Oliver Parrott (Te Akau School) both won positions in the Goord Cup Western Greens team. The tournament has been played which resulted in the Western Greens placed second. From that competition, a Bowers Cup team was selected. Josef Meek was successful in selection for this squad also. Way to go Jo!

The Gwynne Shield tournament kicked off on Sunday 4 July at Hautapu. Braden Shilton and Mornè Rossouw will play games daily for the Panthers during the first week of the school holidays so a busy time ahead for these boys. Congratulations to all the boys that trialed and won selection for the above representative teams – rest up when you can, fuel your bodies and remember play hard but play fair. May the force be with you!

Frankton will be hurting after two losses to us this season and a strong showing this week is imperative to make the final which will be decided between Top qualifier Pirongia and 4th Kereone. This in all probability is the last home game for 2010 and if you haven’t made it down to the park this year, Saturdays kick off is 2.40. In all likelihood this is Captain Ray

Brooking’s last Home game after a stellar six seasons for us. It would be great to see a big home crowd to cheer on the boys for what has been a pretty good season so far. This is where we have aimed to be at semi final time let’s take it on to the next level. More news on the Rugby front is there is going to be a Golden oldies game coming up soon. all interested players over 40 should contact Frank Turner for details 8258689. Rob Kirkwood

The B’s travel to Kereone for their semi, kicking off at 1.00pm. Give it heaps guys! Lisa Robertson

Tractor FM is not your average radio station. Unlike mainstream radio stations, we have been trying to keep our station relatively advertisement free. Our moto is “its all about the music”. From our new studio Tractor FM will live stream to the world after 4 years of hard work and lots of regular parties to raise funds culminating in our summer fundraiser ‘Boardies & Bikinis’ festival at Ruapuke motor camp. Tractor FM will be with you where ever you have a computer. We have been working hard this year on our website, as well as moving into our new studio. There are now live shows every night of the week and we are filling day time slots - with twenty five dj’s now breathing their own styles of music into the already rock solid playlist that selects the freshest locally produced beats and timeless classics. Tractor FM was started as a hobby by a few mates in a backyard shed and has quickly evolved into what it is today. Now having bills to pay we are looking for local business to jump on board the ‘tractor’ and get your business on air and to a worldwide audience. Tractor FM is determined to keep the station about Raglan and not go over the divvy for support. In our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint we have been experimenting with solar power to run our transmitter. You may of noticed some differences in signal strength which is due to lack of sun which we will look to complement with wind power or more solar panels. Bear with us - full power coming soon. Tractor FM wishes to thank our sponsors, past and present, and all the people who have put their hands up over the years to make it all possible. If you would like to contact us please email us at tractorfm@gmail or find us at or contact the studio on 021 022 64 789. For advertising call Lee on 0211615074. Rob Bailey

OPINION: Bewilderment - by Ian McKissack The world of finance and politics is getting more and more confusing and I don’t think that this is just because I have joined the ranks of the elderly bewildered. I suspect that the people running the show are pretty confused themselves, or devious. Apparently New Zealand is borrowing $250,000 a week to keep things going. This is partly to fund the tax cuts though tax is essentially the government’s income. The general idea is that people will work harder because they get to keep more of their wages. Maybe, or

perhaps not. Also the government has to keep big infrastructure projects going, partly to keep people in employment. Well I suppose it all does make some sense, but not much. It isn’t long since Michael Cullen seemed to have plenty of money in hand and everybody complained that he could afford to give tax cuts but he didn’t. Now we can’t afford the cuts we have got them. Brilliant cross party political logic! A few weeks ago I expressed confusion over the price rises we are to expect in fuel

and power. It turns out that this isn’t a tax on us, it is a tax on the fuel and power suppliers to enable the government to buy carbon credits. The suppliers will then pass the cost on to us. The government can gain carbon credit by planting forests or when global emissions trading really gets going, if it ever does, by buying carbon credit from countries who don’t use up their own emissions allocation. I’m not clear that carbon emissions will be reduced worldwide through this system, though they certainly need to decline.

Taking a leap to big business and the oil stricken Gulf of Mexico I am puzzled by the amount which BP will have to pay in compensation. No one seems to doubt that they can afford to do this so their profits must be immense. And from whom are they getting that profit? Us I should think. There so many hands rustling notes from our wallets it’s a wonder we have enough left for our own foolishness.

CBD to be extended along Cliff St - by John Lawson The only unexpected proposal in the new Raglan Structure Plan is a plan to allow 10 metre high buildings along Cliff St up to number 21 and build a new road through from 22 Wallis St to 21 Cliff St, together with a new walkway through to 4-Square on Bow St. This CBD extension is said to provide, “the opportunity for establishing a pattern of higher density development that may equally be suitable for tourists or for residents seeking smaller units of accommodation than is typically available”. Currently most buildings along the harbour edge road are set well back. It is proposed new buildings on Cliff Street will be 3m to 5m back from the road, but no more than 2 storeys. Apart from that the 25 page Plan is as interesting for what’s not in it, as for what is. Some months ago Raglan Community Board was told the proposals for a sewage system on the Whaanga Coast would be set out in the Structure Plan. It isn’t. Neither does the Plan deal with appeals for Whaanga Coast housing. It just says, “Council is currently considering specific provisions for the Proposed District Plan as part of the resolution of the Whaanga Coast appeals.” The consultation draft suggested making the road to the Whaanga Coast safer for cyclists and pedestrians and possibly widening the bridge over the Opotoru. The current Plan just says, “Congestion on the single lane bridge is common during the holiday season but the effect of delays is to moderate expectations regarding infrastructure standards and capacity beyond the town. Further west, roading standards reduce to unsealed roads which are valued by the community as being appropriate to the spectacular natural landscape.” That landscape was also a feature of the first draft, which suggested ‘viewshafts’ to protect views of it. That reflected the importance the Raglan Naturally plan had put on views. There is no mention of views in the current draft.


Not much is proposed for parking either. For the new CBD area, parking is planned to be on service lanes behind Cliff St. For the Wharf only signposts are planned, as, “Raglan relies heavily on the seasonal influx of visitors, many of whom will be unfamiliar with the entirety of facilities within the town and surrounding area. Some existing facilities such as the Raglan Wharf experience pressure from competing users, particularly in relation to the availability of boat trailer parking. The provision of improved signage regarding the availability of alternative facilities can assist the management of peak pressures and ensure that the capacity of all of the areas recreational facilities is optimised.” The Council has finally come out openly in support of 4005 SH23 (near Okete Rd) as its preferred Light Industrial site. The previous version of the Plan looked at 9 possible sites. Seven of them get no mention in this Plan, but the sites near Xtreme Waste and the sewage ponds are rejected because, “the Te Hutewai Rd site is not an appropriate location for industrial development due to its isolation from the town, poor standard of road access and unacceptable landscape impacts given its visibility in views of Mount Karioi.” They also looked at a site in the valley on the Raglan side of Greenslade Rd, “but was rejected due to unacceptable impacts on adjacent residentially zoned land”. Will the existing residents around Three Streams wonder why they seemingly matter less than possible new residents near Greenslade Rd? It seems Council is not planning any public meetings about the Plan, but this and other questions will be discussed at a meeting being run by Whaingaroa Environmental Defence next Tuesday (see ‘Whats On’ advert).
