McEvedy tosses hat into the ring for mayor Coe not standing for fourth term TOM DOUDNEY

A year out from elections, Selwyn already has its first candidate to replace Kelvin Coe as mayor. District councillor Pat McEvedy has announced his intention to stand for the mayoralty in next year’s local government elections in October. Mr Coe, who has been in the role for eight years, said after the 2013 elections that he would not be standing for a fourth term. Last week, he told the Selwyn Times that his position had not changed. He declined to comment on Cr McEvedy as a candidate but said he expected there would be a number of other district councillors putting their hands up for the job over the next few months. Cr McEvedy said he had

HAVE YOUR SAY Would you back Cr McEvedy for mayor? Is there anyone else you think would make a good mayor of Selwyn? Email tom.doudney@starmedia.kiwi declared his intentions early because his mind was made up. “I have had a lot of people ask me what I am doing and I am not one for being coy,” he said. He was “happy enough” with how the district council had performed during his time as a district councillor but there was always room for improvement. “I think that I have got a bit of a vision of how I want to see Selwyn. I think it’s got huge potential and I want to help it achieve that.” Federated Farmers North Canterbury president Frank Brenmuhl said he thought Cr McEvedy would be someone who could bring together urban and rural communities. Tensions between residents have been raised over the effects of intensive farming on the environment and the

district council’s loans to the Central Plains Water scheme. “I think he understands the needs of Selwyn in terms of where its agricultural base is and he understands the needs of both urban and rural to work together so we get mutual outcomes,” said Mr Brenmuhl. Southbridge Advisory Committee chairman Wayne Palmer said he would be happy to see Cr McEvedy in the mayor’s role. “He comes to our committee meetings and has a lot of input there and keeps us updated, so the dealings we have had with him have been all good.” Cr McEvedy runs an arable farm near Southbridge with his wife Lynley and son Matthew. He has served as chairman of the Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee and chaired other district council committees as well as serving as a director of Sicon. Before becoming a district councillor he chaired both the Ellesmere College and Southbridge School boards of trustees and was involved in coaching and administrating rugby.

English pub for Leeston TOM DOUDNEY

It’s been a long time between drinks for Leeston residents but in six months the wait should finally be over. That’s when the town’s new pub is expected to be completed, after work began last week. The town has been without a pub since the Leeston Hotel was demolished in 2011, due to earthquake damage. The $3.2 million development will be built on the same site on the corner of High St and Market St. Called The Crate and Barrel, it has been modelled on the style of an old English pub. It will include a motel, backpackers, restaurant, TAB and pokie machines, and liquor store. It will be owned by Craig Bradford, who also co-owns the Famous Grouse Hotel in Lincoln. Mr Bradford said the pub was named after the second most popular hotel in London. “I Googled that and cheated a wee bit and pinched the name.” Mr Bradford said that since the previous hotel was demolished, he had regularly had Leeston residents visiting the Famous Grouse and telling him of how

good it would be to have a pub closer to home again. “There is definitely a need for a pub out there. There are five rugby clubs surrounding Leeston and there is no funding from pokie machines out there so they struggle obviously. The community itself has got no real meeting place like we have here in Lincoln.” Leeston Community Commit-

tee chairman Lloyd Clausen said there was a lot of interest in having a pub back in town. “It gives us another place for people to dine and meet. I think the town has been missing it.” It will also mean more money being spent in the community rather than elsewhere, Mr Clausen said. Mr Bradford said getting to the building stage had taken

longer than he originally expected for various reasons including changes to local building rules. “It has been three and a half years of getting there, so we’re ready to go.” He had hired former Springston Hotel owner Mark Tweedy to manage the Crate and Barrel, as he will remain based at the Famous Grouse.

SUSPICIOUS MAN Residents in the rural areas north of Burnham and Rolleston have been warned to be on the look out for a potential burglar. The police are aware of a number of incidents in the last few weeks involving a man walking or biking and entering unlocked cars and garages up driveways. The incidents took place within a few kilometres of each other, in the area of Walkers Rd, Newtons Rd, Sandy Knolls Rd and West Melton Rd. Police are stepping up patrols in the area and units from Christchurch will be assisting. HOUSING ACCORD District councillors will be asked to approve entering into a housing accord with the Government at tomorrow’s meeting. The accord would help fast-track the release of land for housing development to meet continuing strong demand. A draft housing accord has been created but is yet to be finalised. Two blocks of land to the south of Rolleston, a combined 116ha, have been identified by the district council as being potential special housing areas. NEW ROAD NAMES Three new roads in The Woodlands subdivision of Prebbleton are set to be named. Carpenter Drive, Beech Drive and Almond Drive are proposed for approval at tomorrow’s district council meeting.

Special measures likely to help migrants TOM DOUDNEY

Selwyn is to recognise its growing diversity by looking at implementating special measures to help migrants. They include the possibility of a transport service for those who feel isolated. The district has become more diverse, with many new migrants coming to work on farms or as rebuild workers looking to base themselves near Christchurch. A ‘Newcomers and Migrants Strategy’ is up for adoption at tomorrow’s district council meeting. An advisory group, steering group and working parties have been tasked with implementing the strategy, looking at various issues newcomers and migrants face. These include difficulty accessing information and services, social isolation, language barriers and cultural diversity not celebrated. Plans to address these challenges include not only transport but a new website. A cultural market could be implemented and ways

DIVERSITY: Selwyn held its first Indian ‘Diwali’ festival in Lincoln in October. The district council is looking to hold more such cultural events.

Selwyn’s major ethnic groups •European/pakeha - 91.9 per cent •Maori – 7 per cent •Asian – 3.2 per cent •Pacific peoples – 1.2 per cent •Middle Eastern, African or Latin •American – 0.6 per cent •Other – 2.3 per cent of celebrating culture. The 2013 census found that 16,428 Selwyn residents, or 38

per cent, had been living elsewhere five years before. Of those who had moved from overseas, 50 per cent came from England, while Australia and South Africa had each provided 12 per cent of migrants. The district’s child population is more diverse than the population as a whole, with age structures of non-European groups tending to be younger in composition.

OIL SPARKS CALL-OUT A cloth covered in Linseed oil sparked a call-out for Rolleston firefighters on Saturday – and the danger was real, fire service spokesman Andrew Norris said. The cloth was rolled up and left in a rubbish pile after use. The owner of the Kinglear Drive property called firefighters after noticing a burning smell. Firefighters traced the smell to the rag and found it had begun to heat up and was already smoking. Mr Norris said rags soaked in linseed oil had the unusual ability to spontaneously combust if left rolled up or compressed and it was important they were disposed of correctly. “They could have had a house fire,” he said.

DAIRY FARM OPEN DAY More than 1000 people attended the Lincoln University Dairy Farm Open Day on Friday and Saturday. Visitors got to learn about the operations of a commercial dairy farm, through displays, demonstrations, tastings and by talking to scientists and industry professionals. Volunteers’ afternoon tea A morning tea for volunteers in the Malvern area will be held on December 4, 10am, at the Darfield Service Centre. The morning tea has been organised by the Malvern Community Board to thank volunteers for the work they do in the community. GREENWASTE DISPOSAL Selwyn residents will be able to dispose of green garden waste at Hawkins Pit near Darfield on December 5, 10am-4pm. It costs $5 per car, $10 per ute or single axle trailer, $15 per twin axle trailer, with payment by cash only. General rubbish, soil, flax, cabbage tree leaves, trees or branches over 10cm in diameter can’t be disposed of through this service. The proceeds will be donated to the Malvern Lions Club. Hawkins Pit is located off Cullens Rd, just east of Bangor Rd. A greenwaste disposal day is also planned for the Ellesmere area early next year.

RURAL FIRES Selwyn firefighters attended a number of fires near Rolleston, Hororata and Greendale and Prebbleton on the weekend. One of the largest was a 600 sq m fire at a rural property on Longstaffs Rd on Sunday. It began as a controlled burn which got out of hand and jumped the fence into a neighbouring property. Others incidents included fallen powerlines on Downs Rd, near Hororata, which sparked a grass fire on the roadside and a stand of about 50 mature trees burning near Warrens Rd, Greendale. Both of these fires were on Friday.

GETTING A GLIMPSE: A design for the new St Patrick’s Catholic Church in Lincoln. Right: The former St Patrick’s Catholic Church which has been deconstructed.

Concept designs for Catholic church released A concept design has been produced for a new Catholic church in Lincoln to replace one deconstructed after the earthquakes. St Patrick’s Catholic Church, on the corner of Gerald St and West Belt, was severely damaged by the September 2010 earthquake and sustained further

damage in the subsequent 2011 earthquakes. Following engineering assessments it was deemed to be uneconomic to repair and strengthen and was deconstructed in December 2014. The parish centre, next door, was largely undamaged by the earthquakes and has

remained in use. The new church will be be built on the same location. The planning and design is being co-ordinated by a parish planning group. The concept design has been developed with the assistance of Opus Architecture and City Care Building Construction. Planning group chairman Rob-

ert Finch said the members had worked hard to get to the current stage. “The aim is to retain the existing parish centre and integrate it into the new church design,” Mr Finch said. “Details of the concept are still evolving and feedback from recent consultations is presently

being incorporated into the design.” Once the concept has been completed and assessed and approved by the Diocesan office, it will proceed through the subsequent phases of detailed architectural and structural design in preparation for a building consent submission.

Risks of digging deeper As the rebuild rockets ahead, quarries are struggling to keep up with demand, and they say they need to dig deeper. But many people are worried Canterbury’s water supplies could be contaminated if it is allowed. So what are the risks? Gabrielle Stuart reports It’s easy to take the clean water that comes straight from our taps for granted. Most of Canterbury’s water supply is pumped from underground aquifers into our homes, and is regarded as one of the best in the world, without the chlorine or treatment needed in other cities. The Canterbury Aggregate Producers Group, made up of nine quarry owners around Canterbury, has applied for permission to dig their quarries up to 4m deeper, under the highest groundwater line. On the weekend the plan was made public, so people can have a say before a final decision is made. People opposed to the plan say it is crazy. The risk to one of Canterbury’s greatest assets is just too great, Christchurch City Council’s Deputy Mayor Vicki Buck said. “The way you avoid risk is to not go anywhere near the aquifer, given how important those aquifers are to everything in Christchurch and beyond. The basics, the fundamentals are your water and we get an incredibly cheap drinking water system from it. It is really not something you need to mess with.” But there’s more to the story. Part of the problem is the mas-

sive demand for aggregate. Before the earthquakes, businesses in Greater Christchuch produced about three million tonnes of aggregate per year – worth about $35m. Since the earthquakes, that has risen to about six million tonnes per year, worth about $75m. About 10 million tonnes of aggregate is expected to be needed for the Christchurch rebuild alone, and more again for normal development of the city and road networks. The stone has to come from somewhere, and the quarry group says the current sites are close to running out of stone. Nine companies are currently part of the quarry group: Selwyn Quarries, Blackstone Quarries, Christchurch Readymix Concrete, Fulton Hogan, Isaac Construction, KB Contracting & Quarries, Road Metals, Taggart Earthmoving and Winstone Aggregates. They run quarries around McLeans Island, Yaldhurst and Prebbleton. The application predicts it could get up to 30 million tonnes of extra aggregate if it was allowed to dig deeper, without having to open any new quarry sites. It argued that would be much better than the alternative. The number of complaints over the past year show neigh-

Brian Warren

bours don’t appreciate having a quarry open in their backyard, with the dust, noise and hundreds of trucks that come along with them – as well as the risk of water contamination that comes with any sort of quarrying. And if no new quarries are opened, the other options are significantly more expensive, and bring their own environmental issues. Ms Buck said she would prefer to see the aggregate taken from river beds, as that could help reduce the flooding risk as well. But in a submission to Environment Canterbury, Mr Warren said the amount of aggregate which could sustainably be taken from Canterbury rivers was 700,000 tonnes per year – and the process of extracting it was a lot more difficult and expensive. If the stone had to be taken

from quarries more than 6065km away, the cost of transporting it would be higher than the cost of the aggregate itself, he said. That could push up the cost of building, for residents, for businesses and for publicly-funded projects. “Nobody wants a prison or a quarry for a neighbour but our society can’t function without both,” he said. The group also outlined in its application how it planned to quarry below the highest water level without contaminating groundwater. The groundwater levels rise and fall regularly. So the group believes it can quarry deeper while the levels are lower, and still stay at least 1m above the groundwater level. Under the plan, in areas where the groundwater rises about once every 16 months, the quarrying would just be done between January and March, then the area would be back-filled. In the submission, there were two potential ways water could be contaminated that were identified: While the pits were open, and after they were filled. While the pits are open, the main risks are spills from machinery, and droppings from

animals. “The removal of the strata overlying the water table creates a shorter pathway through which contaminants can enter groundwater and also increases the potential for groundwater to rise up into working quarry pits,” the application said. “The back-filling of the quarry excavations also presents potential risks to groundwater if inappropriate material is used to back-fill the quarry excavations, and in the future if back-fill material becomes saturated by groundwater, thereby generating a higher level of leachate.” It said back-fill below the highest recorded groundwater level “shall mostly be virgin natural materials such as clay, soil and rock with minor amounts of concrete, reinforcing steel, bricks, and other inert rubble and shall contain no concrete slurry or cured asphalt”. Even with the best monitoring in the world, Ms Buck said there was still a risk the water could be contaminated. And if that happened, ratepayers would have to bear the cost, she said. “For a city able to derive water straight from the ground and it’s pure, that’s a rare thing. Why would you ever risk that.”

Southbridge resident Martin Welby writes in support of district councillor Pat McEvedy’s recent ‘Soap Box’ article (Selwyn Times, November 10) about a need to be cautious when attributing nitrate levels in groundwater to farming intensification . . . I applaud Cr McEvedy for actually bringing some factual data into an argument. People seem to like to make sweeping general generalisations, especially when it gives the opportunity comes to bash up farmers. The people of Greendale should be aware that we have never had a case of blue baby syndrome linked to water nitrate levels in New Zealand. Also, it takes very little time to delve into the facts, and find that there is also growing disagreement in the scientific community, on the role of water nitrate in blue baby syndrome. It appears that gastrointestinal infections may play the main role, and it just happens that historically the causative water supplies were contaminated with farm run-off, containing nitrate as well as harmful bacteria. Ian H Duff, Lansdowne The recent decision by the district council to loan $8 million of ratepayer money, effectively unsecured, to Central Plains Water Ltd had a neo-liberal smell about it but I choose to participate in the democratic facade final three

days of the process. In my own short submission I felt compelled to observe that “never in the history of inappropriate corporate welfare by a local authority has the burden of risk and failure been borne by so many for the benefit of so few.’’ Putting numbers to this observation, there are over 23,500 rateable entities in Selwyn, including 13,804 residential properties, but the direct benefit of CPW water, if affordable, would accrue to just 350 properties – ie less than 1.5 per cent of rateable entities. The two-hour deliberation discussion was notable for the lack of commercial experience of most district councillors, made obvious by a misguided fixation that this loan was just another prudent investment like Izone. It was clear that few district councillors had ever experienced the gutwrenching experience of being an unsecured creditor when a company goes broke, either cynically or by misadventure. Izone was indeed a prudent investment because the district council owned the land and were empowered by natural monopoly and statute to enhance the value of that land by re-zoning. They only had to add their specialty of roads and utilities to make it work. With no tangible security, the CPW loan has to be seen as a potential $8 million black hole for ratepayers. This loan is not a prudent investment; it is inescapably a gamble.

Fighting fires runs in up being on the water tanker. We had about five appliances there. We were just standing around when all of a sudden the siren went so we went running. Then, driving down the road, we could see the flames from the truck and the officer said: ‘You guys are going to be busy for a while.’ What makes you want be a volunteer firefighter? Being able to help the community and it’s sort of like a brotherhood amongst all the guys. When you go to a job, the person with you has got your back and you have got their back. What would be some of the more memorable call-outs you’ve attended? The Christchurch earthquakes for obvious reasons; the flooding around Southbridge area and the high winds – natural disasters. How old were you when the February 22 earthquake happened and what was your role? I think I was 18. We were just assist-

Southbridge resident Steven Maw recently set the fastest ever time for a New Zealander competing in the World Firefighter Combat Challenge in Montgomery, Alabama. He spoke to Tom Doudney about following in his father’s footsteps and remembering his first big fire You and your brother Hamish both followed your father Wayne into the Southbridge Volunteer Fire Brigade. When you were a kid, did you think it was pretty cool that dad was a firefighter, was that something that you looked up to him for? Yeah, it was. Dad has been in the fire service for 33 years now and I am only 24. The day I was born I was sort of born into the fire service. With the fire brigade functions and events they had on, Hamish and I were always there. These local fire brigades have always seemed quite family-orientated to me, is that right? Very much so. When did you decide you might want to be a firefighter yourself? We had an honours night, or it might have been a Christmas party, when I was 15 and I talked to dad about it. He said that you

can apply to join when you are 16 and that made up my mind. The day I turned 16 I went and saw the Southbridge chief Donald McMillan and he filled out the paperwork with me. What was the first big job you remember in those early days? We had quite a big scrub fire between Southbridge and Rakaia and I ended DOUBLE DUTY: Steven Maw is a volunteer firefighter with Southbridge and a paid firefighter for Christchurch Airport.

ing some of the city trucks. Our Southbridge truck ended up going in very early on and I went in as part of the relief crew to let those guys come out at about 8.30pm that night. We came home about midnight. What sort of work were you doing there? We were passing tools and cutting equipment and lifting stretchers. What would be the strangest or quirkiest job you’ve been to? We went to a boat fire in the middle of the Rakaia river mouth lagoon and that was quite interesting. We had to get some hose out using another wee boat which we took to put the other one out. Did you borrow some locals boat? Yeah, it was a tiny wee fishing boat. Are you and Hamish pretty competitive when you go to the combat challenge events? Do you like to beat each other? When we train we are really competitive. When we compete we sort of go into our own minds and we are trying to beat ourselves rather than beating each other.

the family For me, I get more out of it if I beat my own time rather than the person I am racing. How many combat challenges have you been to overseas? I’ve been to three World Challenges and one United State title event. What do you do for work? I am a firefighter at Christchurch Airport. Oh, what’s that like compared to the volunteer firefighting with Southbridge? It’s quite good because as a volunteer our main focus is the residential area with houses and car crashes whereas at the airport our main focus is aviation – the aircraft and passengers. The majority of our calls are medical related such as passengers coming in not feeling very well and accidents at the airport. Not all our jobs are at the airport though, we do get out to car crashes and vegetation fires and alarm activations. What do you like to do in your spare time? I like the outdoors so I try and get up to the hills and for a bit of a tramp and hike but generally in my time off I am doing fitness

GREENDALE GOLF CLUB If you fancy a round of golf in a quiet country location head out to the Greendale Golf Club, near the Selwyn River. It has an 18-hole golf course located on Coaltrack Rd with trees and water hazard challenges on most holes. There are men’s and women’s midweek open tournaments held on the first Wednesday of the month, with an entry fee of $15. Make up a four of your own or go along and the club will fit you into a group. Tuesday and Saturday mornings are club days but visitors are welcome to join in. Saturday start times are 12.30pm, October to March, and noon April to September. Tuesday start time is 9.30am. Players are asked to be there at least 15min beforehand to allow the draw to be finalised. Green fees are $20, including GST, per player, per round. Players can check course availability by phoning the clubhouse on 03 318 8046. As the clubhouse is not attended full-time, green fee players should bring the correct change – there is no Eftpos available.

ROLLESTON SOFTBALL CLUB The Rolleston Softball Club will be having its club day this Saturday. This means all its teams will be playing at home, taking about 120 players plus parents down to Rolleston Reserve. After forming three years ago, the club has grown to include 26 teams. It has achieved more than its fair share of success in its short life so far, being named Canterbury’s ‘softball club of the year’ in 2013, winning several age group championships and having six Canterbury representatives last year. The club has set up coaching and development programmes designed to harness young players’ raw talent. It is planning a move to Brookside Park in the next few years where a skin diamond will be developed so that the club can host tournaments and night games. If you are interested in joining the club or can help with sponsorship, phone 021 428 246 or email paul.frewen@vodafone. com

School fundraiser for refugee family TOM DOUDNEY

Selwyn and war-torn Syria are poles apart but that hasn’t stopped a group of Lincoln High School students reaching out to help a refugee family in need. Year 9 students will host a morning tea on December 3, to raise money for one family that fled to Turkey to escape the reach of both the Syrian government and insurgent group the Islamic State. The students’ teacher Rachel Meadowcroft is the link to the family. Her mother, tour manager and travel writer Jill Worrall, met 30-year-old Hassan (not his real name) seven years ago when he helped her organise camel rides at the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra. Known as the ‘Venice of the Sands’ the 2000-year-old ruins were a beacon for tourists in more peaceful times. Hassan and his family lived in

the nearby modern town of the same name. After the war broke out in 2011, the Syrian government began shelling the town and pressuring its residents to join the army as it sought to quell popular uprisings. Hassan joined Western-backed rebel group the Free Syrian Army, in a non-combat role, as did others. However some men ended up joining Islamic State, in some cases being coerced by threats of violence against their families. Islamic State, has since captured both the modern town and the ruins, destroying ancient monuments and beheading its retired antiquities chief Khaled al-Asaad in August. Hassan was forced to leave the

used to meet the family’s basic needs including shelter, food, clothing and looking after Hassan’s brother’s three children and as-yet-unborn fourth child. “Turkey is cold at this time of the year and they left Syria basically with nothing.” Ms Worrall said Hassan and his family were “incredibly grateful” when told of the fundraiser and it meant a lot to them just to know that people cared about their plight. “People say ‘what does only helping one family do?’ but what else can you do? Otherwise it’s all too big and it overwhelms you.” •Tickets to the all-you-caneat morning tea at Lincoln High School are $5. Email Ms Meadowcroft at rme@lincoln. school.nz

Also pictured is Just Cabins franchiser Fenton Peterken. The business rents out portable cabins as extra rooms, offices or on-site accommodation. The award was presented to the Nuttalls, who run the Selwyn and Ashburton franchise, at a gala event, held at Rendezvous Hotel in Auckland. The judges praised the “efficient and effective business model that provides strong results” and said the Nuttalls had “a clear, long term strategy to build their business.” Mr Nuttall said they were delighted and a little overwhelmed. “But it is great that the judges appreciated the effort we put into ensuring our customers get the best possible service.”

Exam success for Altero musician TOM DOUDNEY

It’s been a rocking good year for drummer Bede Barrie. The Burnham 18-year-old recently passed his his Trinity College of London Grade 8 music exam with distinction. Barrie is part of Lincoln High

School band Altero, which made it into the final 20 bands of the national Smokefree Rockquest competition earlier this year. He was pleased and surprised to have done so well in the Trinity College exam after playing in front of an examiner who had flown in from England to assess

local music students. “I’m pretty stoked, I wasn’t expecting it at all,” Barrie said. “After I played, I didn’t really have any idea of how well I had done. I just tried my hardest.” He was considering applying to study music at Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technol-

ogy or elsewhere and thought the certificate would be helpful in getting accepted. Barrie had been fascinated by music since he was a toddler and listening to bands such as Gorillaz and the Red Hot Chili Peppers had inspired him to take up drumming while in primary school.

Keep up with your local news online selwyntimes.co.nz

He joined his first band while at Akaroa Area School and later started playing with other musicians, including bassist Jared Whiting, while in year 10. He and Whiting went on to form Altero with current bandmates Min-Young Her and Miceal Wilson.

TOM DOUDNEY

The Ellesmere Archery Club has staged its first tournament at its new home of Osborne Park in Doyleston. About 30 archers from around Canterbury played in the Ellesmere Archery Double 720 RMT event on Saturday. The club moved its outdoor activities from Southbridge as competition for ground use was high, with both rugby and cricket making use of Southbridge Park. Indoor shooting, during the winter months, will still be held in Southbridge. Head coach Ali Lewis said the club, which has about 15 mem-

bers who shoot regularly, was very happy about its new home. “Its got hedging shelter all the way around, it’s beautifully

maintained and well kept and it’s just a lovely place to shoot.” Lewis said it was very exciting for the club to hold its first event

scorer for Southbrook, falling one short of a half century on 49. Dave Beatty and Mike McCaughan each took three wickets for South Malvern. Competition front-runners, Sefton, scored an easy 10-wicket win over Oxford after all their bowlers chipped in to bowl Oxford out for 111. All six of Sefton’s bowlers took a wicket while Barry Cross, Jamie Youngman and Andrew Laffey bagged two each. The run chase was a formality and Sefton’s openers cruised to victory inside 16 overs. Matt Laffey finished on 61 not out and Tim Harrison on 40 not

out. It was a happy return to Southbridge Domain for LeestonSouthbridge as they defeated Greendale by seven wickets. The senior side played their first game at Southbridge in close to a decade and rolled Greendale for 139. Opener Nick Jenkins compiled a quick 46 for Greendale before the side collapsed. Angus Hooper was the pick of the Leeston-Southbridge bowlers taking three for 22 while Tim Field, Ben Roborgh and Sam Chamberlain each snared a brace. Leeston-Southbridge opener

Chris Beatson then anchored the run chase with a 79-ball 60 not out which included 13 boundaries. Leeston-Southbridge reached the target in the 28th over to record their third win of the season. Lincoln made hard work of a small run chase against Weedons. Batting first Weedons could only manage 104 all out with Reuben Craw the pick of the Lincoln bowlers taking three for 16. Weedons’ Josh Watson made life difficult for the Lincoln batsmen taking five for 20. Lincoln managed to get over the line with only two wickets remaining which means they leap-

at Osborne Park. “I love watching the young ones enjoying it. It’s a great confidence booster for them when they find they have skills they’d have and it’s a lot of fun.” The club will be sending nine young archers to the Archery New Zealand National Championships and Open in Wellington in January. The tournament will take seven days, with Ellesmere archers participating in the target shooting and probably the clout events. The club will also be hosting the South Island JAMA Championships at Osborne Park in February.

Spectacular century leads to upset win South Malvern’s James Ferris notched his second spectacular century of the season in premier country cricket to help his side to an upset win over the previously unbeaten Southbrook. Chasing Southbrook’s 148, Ferris scored 123 not out off 60 balls with the three figures coming off just 50 balls. It was Ferris’ second amazing innings in a month after he smashed a 34-ball century in round four. South Malvern knocked off the score in 17.3 overs to improve their record to three wins and four losses. Darryn Boyle was the top

frog Weedons into third place on the ladder. Results: Southbrook 148 (D Boyle 49, D Beatty 3-19, M McCaughan 3-31) lost to South Malvern 151-2 (J Ferris 123*) by eight wickets at Glentunnel. Oxford 111 (A Laffey 2-10, J Youngman 2-18, B Cross 2-28) lost to Sefton 114-0 (M Laffey 61*, T Harrison 40*) by 10 wickets at Sefton. Greendale 139 (N Jenkins 46, A Hooper 3-22) lost to Leeston-Southbridge 143-3 (C Beatson 60*, D Munro 45, R Dalley 2-22) by seven wickets at Southbridge. Weedons 104 (B Agnew 28, R Craw 3-16) lost to Lincoln 108-8 (A Patterson 20, J Watson 5-20) by two wickets at Lincoln. •More local sports, page 24

SELWYN TIMES

TUESDAY NOVEMBER 24 2015

Restricted fire season introduced A restricted fire season is now in place across the rural plains areas of Selwyn. The restricted fire season has been introduced as the fire risk has increased over recent weeks as weather conditions have become drier. In a restricted fire season, only gas barbeques, crop residue and rubbish fires inside contained drums are allowed in rural areas of Selwyn. There are a number of conditions which must be met before fires can be lit (see ‘What’s allowed in a restricted fire season’ below). If you are thinking of lighting a fire, you should always check whether you can do so and what safety guidelines they must meet by visiting www.selwyn.govt.nz/fire. Over summer people may see crop residue fires burning. Fire services are often called out to attend rural fires that are being supervised and managed appropriately. It’s expensive and time consuming for volunteer fire fighters to attend false call outs so we encourage people to check if there are people on site supervising the fire. If there is no one present people should report this by dialing 111.

What’s allowed in a restricted fire season In residential areas the only type of fire permitted throughout the year is a gas barbeque. Other fires need a resource consent from Environment Canterbury. In rural areas in Selwyn in a restricted fire season the following rules apply:

Building Consent Team achieves

New Zealand first in reaccreditation The Council has been reaccredited as a Building Consent Authority, and is the first Council in New Zealand to be reaccredited three times without needing to make any changes to existing consent processing practices or systems. The team was audited in October for reaccreditation as a Building Consent Authority, which enables the Council to issue building consents. As part of the assessment process, IANZ (International Accreditation New Zealand) routinely require corrective actions, when noncompliance with Government regulations are identified, or issue strong recommendations about how consent processing systems or methods could be improved to better comply with regulatory requirements. IANZ assessors found no issues which required corrective actions and made no strong recommendations for Selwyn to improve its processing systems. The IANZ report also identified Selwyn’s records of processing and inspection decisions and reasons for decisions, and training processes as being of a particularly high standard and cited these as examples of good practice and performance. In 2013, Selwyn introduced a new online building consent application system. The system has been refined over the past two years and allows people to lodge and check on consent applications at any time from their office or from home. It also allows code compliance certificates to be issued onsite once a final building inspection is completed which enables new home owners to move in immediately. The system was developed by Council and Alpha Group and won the Society of Local Government Managers Supreme Excellence Award in April 2015. Selwyn District Council is one of the busiest building consent authorities in New Zealand. In the year to June 2015, we issued the third highest number of new dwelling consents after Auckland and Christchurch. The Council processed 2,790 building consent applications in total, and the average time to issue a consent was 12 working days. Selwyn has been New Zealand’s fastest growing district for eight years running. Building Manager Ian Butler says the results of the reaccreditation process mean that people building or renovating homes in Selwyn can feel confident that the Council has appropriate systems and processes in place to deliver building controls which meet or exceed government expectations.

On the roads this week

This week resealing work is planned along Duckpond, Fiddlers, Ridge and Ahuriri Roads. Stop and go signs will be used for traffic control. Maintenance grading work is planned around the High Country, Lake Coleridge, Leeston, Dunsandel, Springston and Rolleston areas, with roads remaining open. Where work is not completed this week, work will continue next week.

CC231115

· Any type of fire not listed as permitted above · Fire cannot be lit on Council reserves In the high country and hill areas of Selwyn, a restricted fire season is permanently in place.

Explore Selwyn: Cave Stream You can explore Selwyn’s spectacular high country scenery by visiting one of two walking tracks from different ends of the cave entrances. One walk allows you to walk around the cave entrances and explore the surrounding environment, while the other walk allows you to travel through the 600 metre long cave itself. The northern track takes you through a diverse limestone landscape, rillenkarren (water-grooved rocks) and sculptured rock formations. The other track leads to a terrace overlooking the junction of Cave Stream and Broken River. If you choose to walk through the cave you will need a headlight and extra batteries, warm clothing, and sturdy footwear. Read the warning signs outside the cave carefully before entering as it can be dangerous. The water is waist deep, so is not suitable for young children. If the stream is abnormally high, with the water discoloured or foaming, do not enter. Entering the cave at the outflow end is recommended and walking against the flow of the stream. There are several small waterfalls to climb. Outside the nearby limestone formations provided the setting for the movie Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

In the year to June 2015, we issued the third highest number of new dwelling consents after Auckland and Christchurch. The Council processed 2,790 building consent applications in total, and the average time to issue a consent was 12 working days. Selwyn has been New Zealand’s fastest growing district for eight years running. Building Manager Ian Butler says the results of the reaccreditation process mean that people building or renovating homes in Selwyn can feel confident that the Council has appropriate systems and processes in place to deliver building controls which meet or exceed government expectations.

On the roads this week

This week resealing work is planned along Duckpond, Fiddlers, Ridge and Ahuriri Roads. Stop and go signs will be used for traffic control. Maintenance grading work is planned around the High Country, Lake Coleridge, Leeston, Dunsandel, Springston and Rolleston areas, with roads remaining open. Where work is not completed this week, work will continue next week.

· Any type of fire not listed as permitted above · Fire cannot be lit on Council reserves In the high country and hill areas of Selwyn, a restricted fire season is permanently in place.

Explore Selwyn: Cave Stream You can explore Selwyn’s spectacular high country scenery by visiting one of two walking tracks from different ends of the cave entrances. One walk allows you to walk around the cave entrances and explore the surrounding environment, while the other walk allows you to travel through the 600 metre long cave itself. The northern track takes you through a diverse limestone landscape, rillenkarren (water-grooved rocks) and sculptured rock formations. The other track leads to a terrace overlooking the junction of Cave Stream and Broken River. If you choose to walk through the cave you will need a headlight and extra batteries, warm clothing, and sturdy footwear. Read the warning signs outside the cave carefully before entering as it can be dangerous. The water is waist deep, so is not suitable for young children. If the stream is abnormally high, with the water discoloured or foaming, do not enter. Entering the cave at the outflow end is recommended and walking against the flow of the stream. There are several small waterfalls to climb. Outside the nearby limestone formations provided the setting for the movie Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

Classes in yoga

Nicole Du Guay Holistic Yoga.

Nicole Du Guay took up Yoga ten years ago and as her own knowledge and practice increased she began teaching others Hatha Yoga which she now offers at SportsRehab in Rolleston. Hatha Yoga is the traditional and basic form of Yoga that combines physical and mental exercise with a spiritual element. Other forms of Yoga are based on its principles and practices. “Hatha Yoga is more restorative and rejuvenating,” says Nicole who adds that it is great for de-stressing. “Yoga unites mind and body, creating more awareness by linking breath with movement. This slows the body and mind down, releasing stress and tension while improving muscle strength and flexibility.” Nicole covers Yoga therapy and Mindful Meditation in her classes bringing a calming feeling throughout the person. Teaching others has been very rewarding for Nicole whose students praise her patient gentle manner while beginners find her easy to follow

It’s only November but the sun is cranking up, which means it is time to pack away your boots and court shoes and step into some new summer sandals. Before kicking off your boots, prep your pins with a salon wax. If removing hair at home, do not forget the toes. The Hobbit look is not cool. It pays to invest in good in salon pedicure to remove deadskin and get your toenails in prime condition at the start of the season. Feet have a hard time over the summer, exposed to the hot sand and sea and other barefoot adventures, so after showering each night,

rehydrate with a rich moisturiser or foot cream. At the weekend lather it on, put on loose cotton ankle socks to sleep in and in the morning you will wake with baby soft soles. Do not overlook your feet when applying suncream, both in between toes and on the soles. Go for a nongreasy waterproof and markfree solution so it can withstand water and sweat. For footwear there is plenty to choose from. Try to shop for summer sandals in the afternoon when your feet are warmer. Feet expand and sweat in the summer heat so a good fit is important. If wearing all day go for leather. If you prefer flats, for casual beachwear you cannot go wrong with Havaianas, but

there are also plenty of stylish flat slides around this summer. Flats can still look great as evening wear, especially with decoration such as metallics, chains or fringing. Block heels are a smart option which although quite flat look dressy with black pants. They also go well with wider palazzo pants and shorts. If you like comfort but want height, go for a chunky sole. They are more elegant than the clunky flatforms of last summer. For more height but plenty of stability, wedges or platforms are a great option. Add a breezy dress and sunnies and you are ready to leap into summer. — Annemarie Quill

tasty bites Pineapple with basil lime sugar Serves 6 There are a few interesting dishes that people will never forget. This is one of them - the combination of pineapple and basil may sound unusual, but boy does it work! Caramelising the pineapple brings out its juices and natural sweetness, and together with the sweet fragrant basil sugar and a squeeze of tangy lime, it is absolutely divine, yet incredibly simple – this will become one of your favourite simple desserts. Ingredients 20g Butter

To serve, lay 3-4 slices cooked pineapple on a plate, sprinkle over a few teaspoons of basil sugar.

Lots of lovely lettuce 15cm in height around your plastic bottle in the shape of a teepee. Fill your bottle up to the halfway mark with beer (slugs aren’t fussy about the type of beer, but kids make sure you ask your parents first). To ensure that the beer is protected from rain, take the discarded end of your plastic fizzy drink bottle and cut off a section approximately 5cm from the end. Balance this section on the three sticks you staked earlier. This will create a lid to protect the beer against rain. Now all you have to do is sit back and wait. Overnight the slugs will slide their way into the beer. And don’t just stop with one beer bait bottle, make several and place them around your slug susceptible veges. Believe me you’ll be amazed by the results. Depending on the weather where you live your lettuces should be ready to harvest in around four to eight weeks. Remember, you can simply pick the leaves off as you need them. Got kids? This is a great job for them to be in charge of at dinnertime. And, they get to pick the type of lettuce they like best. Just remember lettuces like water. Simply put your finger in the ground up to around the first knuckle and if it feels dry you need to add some water.

TOD PALENSKI

If stews, pies and soups make you think of winter. Then surely salads are a symbol of summer. And while there are plenty of vegetables like carrots, beans and beetroot that make great salads, lettuce would have to be my favourite salad ingredient. Cos lettuce makes a great caesar salad. Great lakes or iceberg work well combined with cucumber and tomato in a classic lettuce dish. Mesclun, pear and parmesan create a tasty blend. For those who like to have a range of difference lettuces on hand, try growing red lettuce, buttercrunch, great lakes and cos. Otherwise simply select from the other types of lettuce (including chinese). Once you’ve got your lettuce plants look for a well-drained and sheltered spot in the garden to grow them. Don’t have much space? Lettuces grow great in pots and can be placed in a spot easily accessible to your kitchen. Next simply dig a little hole and plant each seedling around 20cm apart. Try not to overcrowd your seedlings to prevent fungal diseases. And watch out for slugs. Lots of people often tell me that they have problems with these pesky slimy customers. Which is when I

Make sure the lid is tightly screwed on. Make a hole next to your lettuces large enough for the whole bottle neck to fit into.

Salvia, a plant for every situation TOD PALENSKI

Every month I write about a particular plant or two. I showcase what gardens the plant suits and mention the particular features of that variety. This month I’ve decided to write about salvia. But unlike most of the other plants I feature, salvia can’t be narrowed down to just one set of traits or characteristics. The salvia genus includes more than 900 species. It has annuals, biennials, perennials and shrubs. There are dwarf varieties, bedding ones, some that grow up to 3m tall and wide and did you know that sage is in fact a form of salvia? Most of our salvia plants flower from summer through to autumn and are good for bedding and the back of borders. Because of the erect manner which salvia patens electric blue’s branches grow, it can look incredibly striking grown in a pot over summer. In fact, that’s probably the one consistent with salvia – it tends to look very striking wherever you grow it. Luckily, given the several varieties of salvia on offer, each seedling bundle label has

clear planting instructions on the back. But generally they like rich, well-drained soil in full sun to light shade. If you’re growing a dwarf variety simply plant 15cm apart and if it’s

taller salvia try planting 3050cm apart. Then in about eight to 10 weeks you can expect to see some striking salvia colour start to show in your garden.

COLOUR: More than 900 species of salvia are listed.

November is a great time to get your veggie plants in. The weather is warming up and the temperatures are right for growing. Fresh vegetables straight from the garden are delicious and so convenient, and give you such satisfaction knowing you have grown your own fresh produce.

At the time, overseas currency was needed to import motor vehicles and attracted a tariff. However, things were about to change with the Government ultimately removing such taxes. Coleman’s planned to bring large numbers of Norton machines into the country and wanted to race the 1969 Norton to promote the brand. By 1971, the Norton was no longer needed, so Coleman’s sold it to a motorcycle dealer in Rotorua. Syd lived there at the time. He saw the bike, which was beyond his budget and the value of the old motorcycles he was riding at the time. “The Norton was sold about three times, each time traded back to the same dealer,” says Syd, who purchased the bike for $1100 in 1973. “It came with an unusual story of its early life,” muses Syd. “It raced in a one-hour

Castrol endurance race at Pukekohe, while during another race, had a mechanical mishap. The mechanics stripped the engine in the pits and found the foot had come off the cam follower and jammed in behind the crank shaft, punching a hole in the aluminium crank case. This is common with Nortons. “They tipped the bike upside down, flushed the broken pieces of metal out through the crank case with kerosene, then as the unit was still sound, put in a new part and welded the crankcase back together again while it was still in the bike, before sending rider and

bike back out on the track to win the race.” When Syd purchased the Norton, it still had its ugly weld, and several years later when he stripped the engine down, he found pieces of broken cam follower wedged into the crank case with, the weld having held them in place like a band aid. Syd also raced the bike in modified T no longer production series, PROasTEitCwas standard after he ‘hotted it up’ with R YOU Dunstall parts.

storage while the family moved around the country for work with other motorcycles purchased so they could keep riding. Twenty years on, Syd and his son decided to bring the motorcycle to Christchurch and rebuild it as a father-son project. “We started with a pile of parts,” laughs Syd. “With a little bit of wiring and some fuel we should see it on the road soon.” He has also shown the bike to its original owner and shared its stories.

Since then, Brendon and his team have been very busy looking after the motoring needs of the people of Burnham and surrounding areas. This includes customers who come from Rolleston, Darfield, Leeston and West Melton, and some of their clientele have been with the business since it began operating 30 years ago. The workshop at Burnham Auto Services is an extremely busy place. The two fulltime mechanics and one part-timer cover all mechanical needs in an efficient, reliable and honest manner, which might explain why customers keep coming back. “We only repair what needs to be done, and when working on a vehicle always contact the owner, to advise what repairs are needed and the likely cost of those repairs, and ensure they’re happy for us to go ahead,” advises Brendon. They have recently purchased another scanner, which gives them the technology to accurately diagnose and maintain late model vehicles. To celebrate, Burnham Auto Services is offering a vehicle scan for the special price of only $30, from now until Christmas. As a Challenge service station, Burnham Auto Services provides a personal full forecourt service for petrol and diesel. They have LPG swap a bottle for gas and sell a range of products in the shop. This includes confectionary, coffees, automotive parts and more. In addition, the team at Burnham Auto Services sell, fit and balance Kumho and Maxxis tyres. There are also changes in the wind for

Burnham Auto Services, with a wider selection of items planned for the shop. Following on from the recent Lincoln, Tai Tapu and Darfield Challenge renovations, Burnham Motors Challenge upgrade is due within the next six months. This will result in increased fuel storage capacity and a facelift as part of Challenge’s re-imaging so it is no wonder that Brendon and his team are pretty excited. Burnham Auto Services is located just behind the Burnham Military Camp at 36 Russell Road, Burnham. Phone 03 347 6607, and they will be open over the holiday break.

Territory stands the test of time I DON’T expect to get another drive in a Ford Territory. The reason being, like all other cars from Ford’s Australian manufacturing operation, they will cease to exist in their current form when the Melbourne factories close in 2017. That being the case, when I stumbled on a chance to drive the latest territory with its 2.7litre Peugeot-developed V6 engine I grabbed the opportunity. Not a lot has changed with Territory, and I don’t expect it will change much between now and the time it is phased out. But I have a lot of respect for Territory, and it still impresses with its practicality and allround performance. Ford Australia has done an incredible job with Territory. The company showed great vision when it was launched in 2005, and judging by the numbers that have sold on both sides of the Tasman, it must be considered a huge commercial success. The Territory is a bit of a workhorse, and in four-wheeldrive form it must be considered a genuine sports utility vehicle with its vast in-cabin space, seven seats, and ability to tackle the rough stuff. And given that the Territory was originally

based on the Falcon platform, its all-round ability is even more remarkable. The test car was the rangetopper of the series, it carried a Titanium badge and lists at $69,990, bearing in mind that the Territory range starts at $59,990, and there are petrol and diesel engine options.

I continued west through to Dunsandel via Hororata. The Territory is an adept highway cruiser, it dispenses the kilometres quickly and quietly. Given its bulk, it feels agile and controlled, the fully independent suspension is quality and copes with sudden direction changes and the gravitational force which is placed on it. That is an engineering feat Ford has done well, it’s hard to get the right balance of comfort, yet still maintain the firmness needed to arrest uneven surface jolts, along with the containment of body movement in a corner. Like all models which land here from Australia, I’ll be disappointed to see the end of Territory. Given its popularity I’m hoping that Ford Australia will stockpile it as production nears end. That way, those who do wish to keep driving one for years to come have that chance.

BEDROOMS THAT MEET OUR NEEDS

It can be hard to relate the size of bedrooms on house plans to what might be the ideal amount of space for your family.

D

etermining a suitable number of bedrooms and their sizes will largely be influenced by family size and lifestyle with less space needed if the bedroom is just a place to lay a head or for guest use only. Decisions might focus on the amount of furniture each room will have, whether a child will play in their bedroom or teenagers study there, and if lots of clothes or toys are to be kept in the room. If the family living space is large with a study nook these needs might be taken care of elsewhere in the home. Looking through show homes can assist in gaining an impression of bedroom sizes and what furniture will fit into each room. When visiting each show home, enquire as to the size of each bedroom as well as the dimensions of beds and other furniture in the room or take a tape

measure so you can compare sizes against the bed and furniture you are likely to have. Placement of bedrooms in relation to the proximity of other bedrooms and bathroom amenities is also significant. If there is a baby or young children then the main bedroom may need to be nearer the other bedrooms than if teenagers will be living in the home. Bedroom storage is also relevant. Most main bedrooms have walk-in robes but what size will fit your clothing needs? In the smaller bedrooms, there may be a single closet with a door, or a larger wardrobe with sliders. If the door or sliders are lower than the ceiling, the top shelf might be quite deep but not easy to manipulate items into. Shelving might also be built in at one end of larger wardrobes taking away the need for a

dresser or adding handy storage for books and toys. Other considerations relate to ventilation and heating, ensuring sufficient power points and their positioning to take account of a bedside light, telephone connection and whether WiFi will take away the need for computer outlets. While sliders out to decks or patios are common for main bedrooms, they are seldom seen in smaller bedrooms yet this option might be considered if the

positioning of the room within the house design lends itself to this given there is sufficient space in the room. Lastly, how many bedrooms do you really need? While four bedroom homes have had a period of popularity, some building companies are quoting a growing interest in three bedroom homes. It will depend on the number of people living there, whether each child will have his or her own bedroom and if regular visitors justify a dedicated guest room. The more bedrooms, the higher the building costs.

Outdoor rooms J

ust because the outdoor space doesn’t have walls, that doesn’t change the basic principles applied to any design project inside your home. With a few simple fundamentals to guide you, you’ll soon see how easy it is to create a beautiful outdoor room you’ll love entertaining and relaxing in throughout the warm days and balmy nights of summer. Key considerations include style, function, lighting and mood, and remember that your outdoor room ought to be an extension of the look you’ve created within your home, which reflects your personality and lifestyle. FOCAL POINT Beginning, as with any room of the home, a space must always have a focal point to anchor the space. For some, this may be a bar or barbeque area, a large dining table, or a chill-out zone with couches or loungers. Outdoor fireplaces are becoming more and more popular as our living areas blend seamlessly between indoor and outdoor entertaining throughout the changing of the seasons. They can serve not only practical purpose of somewhere to gather around to warm as the nights get shorter, an outdoor fire can make a stunning feature or room divider for any outdoor living area. Water feature like a pond with beautiful Koi fish can also service as a great outdoor focal point, creating a tranquil environment in which to relax and unwind in, or create a meditative Japanese rock garden which your outdoor area can overlook. IN THE ZONE If you already have a large terrace or outdoor area, a blank canvas is a great

place to start. If you have a particularly large outdoor area, dividing the space into zones makes for a more functional and aesthetically pleasing space. You can do this by using a number of different elements, such as contrasting flooring materials or by creating different levels of decking. However, if you’re after a seamless indoor/ outdoor flow or wish to create the illusion of more space, use the same flooring materials indoors and out. Divisions can also be made with the clever positioning of furniture. Use modular seating to create divisions between zones, and are also an ideal way to camouflage ugly walls. Create privacy and soften sharp angels. Living walls, an ever-increasing popular vertical plant system, can be either free standing to create different outdoor areas and can be on wheels to easily transform your outdoor space at a moments notice. Play with height and scale with various types of planters, whether you use hanging planters to draw the eye upwards, or oversized planter pots to add drama. GO WITH THE FLOW Creating a great indoor/outdoor flow is easily created by opening up your kitchen with bi-fold doors or windows to create a servery or bar for easy entertaining. If you are building your home from the ground up, you may want to design an outdoor room which lies at the very epicentre of the building with rooms opening onto the communal courtyard with bi-fold doors. FUNCTION OVER FORM Consider what you intend to use your

outdoor space for. If you don’t plan on eating outside, there’s no need for a dining table, but buy some comfortable outdoor seating instead, and if you only intend on sitting outdoors during the evening, then don’t waste money on awnings and umbrellas, and invest the money in an outdoor fireplace which you will actually use. ATMOSPHERE Create unique and personalised outdoor decor with textiles and homewares from your travels, your favourite antique shop, or make your own shell garlands or wreaths from beach holidays. String up fairy lights or lanterns to create a festive mood in the evenings.

Show Homes

There are many things to think about when you’re considering building a new home. browsing show homes is a fantastic way to get you thinking about practicalities, needs, aesthetics and your wish list! Here are a few considerations to help spark your planning process.

W

hat is your exterior style? What kind of homes do you like? Edgy and contemporary, classic elegance, country lodge? Look around and take a mental note of what you are drawn to most. What kind of exterior materials do you like? Would a brick home suit you, or a modern material board? Once you’ve worked out the look you like, research what materials are available and find out about their durability. How will you use your house? Do you do a lot of entertaining? It’s important to most people to have good indoor/outdoor flow and attractive, sheltered outdoor living. Try to imagine your new home in various seasons. Landscaping will be an important part of your project. Look around at other homes and show homes and consider what you like and what you don’t like. Are you a structured formal garden type or do you like a contemporary native style? Start collecting photos from magazines of gardens you admire. Sustainability and future-proofing aren’t just buzz words anymore. It’s very important for your new home to be designed to be environmentally friendly and to take full advantage of natural attributes such as solar energy. Research insulation requirements, solar hot water heating, ventilation options and new technology to ensure you’re getting

a home that will be affordable to run. Interior decor is a really exciting part of your project. This is where show homes can really help you get to know current trends, colours, beautiful furnishings and furniture. Collect home magazines as well and make up a folder of interior decors you would love to emulate. Also pause to give thought to architectural components inside. Do you like a raised ceiling? What kind of finishing do top homes use and which styles are you drawn to? Heating is also a consideration. Have a look at what show homes are offering. Kitchens form the heart of the house. Show homes give you insight into the latest styles, materials and storage facilities available. Bathrooms are another big component. They need to be as luxurious as you can make them, so start dreaming.

Design & Build Sustainably It needn't cost any more to build an energy efficient home. All it takes is careful planning and design for greater comfort and future savings on power bills.

W

orking with professional architects, designers and builders who understand energy efficient design principles will know the best methods and materials to get the most from your home. With years of experience and knowledge under their belts, but always shop around to make sure the people you enlist have the credentials to offer to the highest level of sustainable solutions. There are numerous ways to cash in on nature’s bounty completely free of charge. Harness the sun’s warmth and light by positioning your house on the sunniest part of your section and orient it to face north Position the main living areas, such

as living, dining and kitchen to the north to make the most of the sun’s rays and relegate service areas like garages and bathrooms to the southern side of the house. Make sure you bank the sun’s heat by installing good insulation in ceilings, walls and floors. Knowing which building materials contain thermal mass properties and how to use them effectively will save on power bills. Exposed concrete floors will soak up the heat during the day and release it when the temperature drops at night. Ensure all windows are appropriately sized and positioned by allocating moderately large windows on the north-facing side,

smaller ones on the east and west sides, and reserve the smallest sized windows for the cool southern side of the home. For the greatest levels of heat retention it pays to invest in double glazed windows with insulated frames. When addressing the question of size, bigger is not always better. Smaller houses are cheaper to build, easier to heat and use a lot less energy, so consider building to a size that suits your needs, rather than building bigger just for the sake of it. Interestingly a house’s shape has a significant bearing on its energy efficiency. The more complex a home’s shape, the more floor, wall and ceiling area it can lose heat through. Compact square shapes and

multi-level homes have less external surface area and are therefore easier and cheaper to keep warm. Considering adequate ventilation in your home’s design is the key to keeping your house cool and comfortable throughout the warmer months, and also helps remove moisture and maintain air quality. Ask your architect to design rooms with a layout that enables effective crossventilation to help with this. A handy hint on heating from the energy experts is to live in your new house for a while before installing heating so you can work out how much heating you actually need. If it’s cleverly designed how little heating it needs may surprise you.
