Remembering the fallen „„ By Bridget Rutherford BILL MITCHELL imagines the 3200 inscribed white crosses that line Cranmer Square as small bodies of Cantabrians killed in World War 1. The 104-year-old will lead the Anzac Day parade in a Jeep on April 25, to remember those who lost their lives. As part of the commemorations, the crosses were laid out on Tuesday, which represent the men and women who died

in the first three years of the war. They are part of the fouryear-long Regional Fields of Remembrance Project, where the number of crosses placed there each year correlates to the number of those killed at that point in the war. Mr Mitchell lost an uncle in World War 1, and he served in the Air Force as a ground engineer in the Pacific during World War 2. He said during World War

1 and World War 2, “life was cheap”. He lost many “mates” while he served in World War 2, and afterwards. Next year, more crosses will be laid out on the square, as it will represent the final year of World War 1. A special ceremony will be held in Auckland on Armistice Day, where every cross in the country will be placed on display to mark the end of the war. •Turn to page 3

$600,000 payment made by CERA to change Crossing „„ By Gabrielle Stuart THE DEFUNCT Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority made a $600,000 payment to the company behind The Crossing development – but specific details of a cost breakdown remains a mystery. Documents obtained by The Star under the Official information Act show questions were raised within CERA over the payment, which was made in 2015 to A.B. Investments Ltd.

Thursday April 13 2017 FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK

GO DOWN to Cranmer Square and you’ll see an incredibly moving scene. There are 3200 crosses there – the number of Cantabrians who died in the first three years of the Great War, a war that was meant to end all wars. Yesterday, reporter Bridget Rutherford and photographer Martin Hunter spoke to 104-year-old Bill Mitchell, a World war 2 vet at Cranmer Square who is leading the Anzac Day parade in 12 days. I’ve always admired the Bill Mitchell’s of this world – sent across the seas as young men to fight in battles, many of them who would never return home. For many it was an adventure; the camaraderie of being in a team, seeing new places and having a lot of fun. But that all turned to custard pretty quick, and those crosses in Cranmer Square define what war brings to many – death. – Barry Clarke

News Cold case’s final chapter

In Brief SNEEZE BLAMED FOR CRASH A sneeze could be to blame for a motorist crossing the centre line and colliding with two trucks near Templeton yesterday. The woman, in her 60s, was taken to Christchurch Hospital with moderate injuries. Both truck drivers were unharmed. Police said she was in the “incorrect lane” and collided with a milk tanker and grain truck at about 11.15am between Berketts and Larcombs Rds, possibly because she had sneezed.

Woman laid to rest nearly a century after murder FORENSIC TESTING of bones nearly a century after St Martins woman Ellen Mouat was murdered has meant she could be laid to rest with her parents. The 40-year-old woman, known as Nellie, was murdered by her husband Frederick Mouat on February 20, 1925, in what has been described as one of the country’s most compelling cases. He dismembered and burnt her body. But police were never able to confirm the remains were hers, and many thought Mrs Mouat was still alive. Now more than 90 years later, as part of the New Zealand Police Museum’s repatriation project, she has been buried with her parents at Linwood Cemetery after testing by Otago University forensic anthropologists confirmed the remains were hers. It was the museum’s 37th, and final repatriation. A special ceremony has been held with police representatives and Mrs Mouat’s family to bury her. Her parents’ headstone in Linwood Cemetery was

TRIO PLEAD NOT GUILTY TO MURDER CHARGE Three people charged with murdering a man in Sumner have pleaded not guilty. Cyle Robert Jetson, 20, and Deborah Jean Tihema, 38, are jointly charged with a 16-year-old who has name suppression of murdering Pierclaudio Raviola on March 23. Mr Raviola was found in the Sumner Surf Life Saving Club car park with serious head injuries on March 24 but died two days later. The trio appeared in the High Court yesterday via audio visual link from prison. They were remanded in custody for a case review hearing on June 23. A trial date is yet to be set.

damaged in the February 22, 2011, earthquake, so police had it restored and added her name to it. Mrs Mouat went missing from her Beckford St home on February 20, 1925. Mr Mouat also disappeared. After a manhunt he was found and charged with her murder. Detectives working on the case found hundreds of crushed and burned pieces of bone on the Mouat’s property and made

a case against him. It was the first time police had built a murder case against someone without having a complete body. At the trial, medical experts testified the bones would have come from a woman of Mrs Mouat’s stature. But because it had not been confirmed, Mr Mouat was only convicted of manslaughter. Police believe Detective John Burt, who was working on the

case, put Mrs Mouat’s remains in the New Zealand Police Museum after it was tried in 1926. That’s where they stayed until they were taken to Otago University last year to be tested. In July, 2015, the New Zealand Police Museum started a project to repatriate the remains of 37 people that had been in the museum’s care since the 1920s and 30s. It has now been completed.

Diary of Gallipoli surgeon brought

SERVICE: Dr Percival Fenwick during the Boer War in 1900. ​ “A more hellish Sunday one could not conceive. “Total to date 5000 (approximately) casualties, about three men per yard of ground gained.”

„„ By Gabrielle Stuart “IT SEEMED impossible for men to live under the hail of bullets” – that was how Christchurch surgeon Lieutenant-Colonel Percival Fenwick described his experience at Gallipoli. He was one of the first New Zealanders ashore at Anzac Cove on April 25, 1915, and kept a diary of the horrifying things he saw there. Parts of his diary have now been used in a new project, Ngā Tapuwae First World War Trails, which tells stories from battlefields where New Zealanders fought. It was designed as a guide for people visiting the battlefields in person for Anzac commemorations, but can also be listened to while exploring the scenes online. Lt Col Fenwick’s granddaughter, Philippa Horn (right), said his diary was only discovered after his death. “He very seldom spoke about those things. The only thing

to life The Gallipoli landing: “We were frightfully hampered by our kit – overcoat, revolver, glasses, map case, haversack, three days rations, firewood, Red Cross satchel, water bottle – like elephants. It was a certainty that we would drown if we got stuck. “After waiting, a steam picket boat came along in charge of a very fat rosy midshipman. He took a string of boats in tow and we were off. Our boat grounded about 50 feet from the shore and we all hopped out. Of course, I fell into a hole up to my neck. I could hardly struggle ashore and when I did the first thing I saw was Beck sitting on a stone, roaring with laughter at us. Bill Beck was the first New Zealander of Godley’s force to get on to Gallipoli.” On treating the wounded: “Several dead men were lying on the beach . . . every minute the numbers increased and, as in addition fresh troops came ashore with mules and ammunition, the chaos became appalling . . . this state

One of his assistants had his finger shot off while helping him. Men were constantly hit in our station and their pluck and devotion in continuing their work under these galling conditions is hopelessly above praise. “At midnight I got four big horse boats, which held 12 stretchers on the bottom and I packed in less severe cases along the sides, sitting, kneeling, lying – anyhow, about 120 all told.

could not conceive.” “Total to date 5000 (approximately) casualties, about three men per yard of ground gained.” On burying the dead: “The most ghastly day. This morning I was ordered to act as the [delineating] officer for the burial of the dead . . . raining heavily. I got a loan of a dead or missing man’s overcoat and was all right. “We were met by some Turkish officers who arrived on horseback followed by 50 very fine looking Turks, carrying Red Crescent and white flags. One of the officers was a German doctor. We were introduced by our interpreters and moved up the hillside in two long lines. Every 100 yards or so we

stationed a man with a white flag, and opposite to him the Turks posted one of their men. We clambered through dripping bushes, with beautiful poppies and flowers. “Coming over the crest of the hill, I found the first New Zealander, lying on his face. Poor lad! A few yards climb brought us on a plateau, and a most awful sight was here. The Turkish dead lay so thick that it was almost impossible to pass without treading on the bodies. The awful destructive power of high explosive was very evident. Huge holes surrounded by circles of corpses, blown to pieces. One shell had fallen and set fire to a bush, as a dead man lay charred to the bone. Everywhere on looked lay dead, swollen, black, hideous, and overall a nauseat-

ing stench that nearly made one vomit. “Behind us for at least two miles, we could see our burial parties working furiously. In some cases the dead actually formed part of the trench wall. It was a terrible sight to see arms and legs sticking out of the sand, underneath the sandbags . . . I left, feeling deadly ill. “I only saw about 10 of ours but, at a very modest estimate, I saw 2000 dead Turks. The Turkish officers were charming. The Germans were rude and dictatorial and accused us of digging trenches. I lost my temper (and my German) and told him the corpses were so decomposed they could not be lifted and our men were merely digging pits to put the awful things into. The Turkish medico was extremely nice. We exchanged cigarettes and I said to him I hoped that after the war we should smoke a cigarette.’’ “If this is war, I trust NZ will never be fool enough to forget that to avoid war one most [must] be too strong to invite war.”

CERA’s $600k payment to change car park

•From page 1 A.B. Investments is owned by PCML Ltd. Well-known Christchurch businessman Philip Carter is a shareholder and sole director of PCML Ltd. When The Star asked the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet for a specific breakdown of the costs that made up the $600,000, the request was declined on the basis “the documents requested do not exist or cannot be found.” Emails obtained under the OIA show that concern within CERA about the payment led to the Office of the Auditor General being asked for advice about it. The concerns also led to CERA engaging Ernst & Young to review all of its payments over two years. Mr Carter has not responded to The Star. His lawyer said yesterday the transaction was documented and approved by CERA’s audit committee. Emails obtained by The Star show on February 5, 2015, Mr Carter sent an email to CERA project delivery deputy director Greg Wilson with the invoice, which he said was “as discussed.”

But in an email on February 9, CERA anchor projects project director Tim Anthon said: “We don’t have 600k in the budget to pay for this.” On March 4, Mr Carter emailed Mr Wilson again about the payment, saying he had discussed it with then CERA Christchurch Central Development Unit director Warwick Isaacs.

Mr Isaacs told The Star yesterday he did not remember the conversation. “It was a very busy time and I don’t have any recollection of it or any issues with it,” he said. Mr Isaacs left CERA in March, 2015, and was replaced by Baden Ewart. Mr Ewart told The Star yesterday he was informed about the agreement with Mr Carter soon after he took on the role.

But Ms McCallum said due to the earthquakes and the rebuild, Christchurch is the perfect place to trial these concepts. “We have a chance to do something different that no one else in the country is in a position to do.”

Over the past year, the city council has been trying to make Christchurch more tech savvy through the Smart Cities programme. Bridget Rutherford takes a look at what the team has been working on TERESA McCALLUM reckons she’s got the best job in the world. She is trying to make the city more tech savvy, and a safer and better place to live and visit. Since November 2015, she has been the city council’s Smart Cities programme manager. Her role is to come up with new ways of doing things through technology that will both improve the way the city operates and save money. But it’s not done in the conventional way that city council’s normally work. She comes up with the ideas, develops them and carries out ‘proof of concept’ trials. They don’t write long reports or do public consultation – they

SmartRubbish It may seem small, but overflowing rubbish bins make up a lot of the city council’s complaints. Smart Cities has been trialling two ‘big belly’ bins in New Brighton for rubbish and recycling. They are solar panelled and can hold six times the amount of rubbish than normal bins because they self-compact. When they are full, they send an email to contractors to empty them, and they also stop the seagulls from getting into them. If the three-month trial proves successful, more bins may be rolled out.

SmartView Wouldn’t it be great to have an online hub where you could go to get all the information you need about Christchurch? That’s exactly what Smart Cities has been working on. SmartView, which is hoped to be up and running by June, is a website where you can find out anything about the city, including water quality, weather, recent earthquakes, air quality, road works, bus routes with live locations of where the bus is, travel times, flight information, activities, events and news. Soon Ms McCallum wants to include a section where you could find every car park in the city – and what ones are free.

Christchurch a smart city to live in

Kiosks Electronic touch screen kiosks are being developed which would be placed in different parts of the city to provide residents and tourists with information. It is likely they will have SmartView loaded on them. They have three different dimensions so kids, people in wheelchairs and taller people can all reach the screen. The team is still working out locations and how many they would create. Bin Level Sensors Along with the SmartRubbish trial, Smart Cities is also working on trialling bin level sensors

which tell contractors when they are full. They have a volume, tilt and heat sensor. These would save contractors’ time because they will know exactly what bins need attention, and it would also show what ones are actually used. It can also save money, in Santander, Spain, level sensor monitoring has been installed in all public refuse bins. As a result, it has saved 1.5 million Euros annually in diesel costs along, as contractors do on demand emptying EQ Response Visualiser Software is being developed that generates images following an earthquake showing the peak ground acceleration. It will generate a coloured ‘heat map’, which will show where in the city was worst affected. This is a huge improvement over the old method of magnitude and location. The city council owns more than 1000 facilities and it wants to continually improve on its assessment and prioritisation processes. once the earthquake visualiser has developed its map, city

council engineers will be able to see where they should start their assessments. This information will be uploaded to SmartView to be used by any individual or agency. The concept was developed as part of last year’s GovHack competition and later came second at the international awards in Adelaide. GovHack team members have formed a company called Sense3 to deliver the project for the city council. It is hoped to be trialled within six months. Sensibel Sensibels are a small piece of equipment, with a bell, which can be clipped onto bicycle handle bars. Smart Cities is looking to roll them out so people can use them when they are riding, and can ring the bell once for a negative experience, and twice for a positive one. The feedback is sent to a mobile phone, then to the cloud, to be used to map what areas need to be improved. Fabriko is making them now.

match. If successful, they will be rolled out across the city, with the results fed onto SmartView. Although they would only provide a rough estimate, it would give residents an idea of air quality where they live.

Sensor Network A sensor network, made up of what are known as ‘kites’, would have a number of different uses, including measuring air quality. Environment Canterbury has air quality monitoring stations in St Albans and Woolston. Smart Cities wants to set them up across the city – the problem is, ECan’s ones cost about $60,000 each. So the team has bought cheap equipment to attach to the kites, costing about $200 each. It has installed them next to ECan’s stations to see if their results

Seismic Monitoring Network In other cities across the world, it is a legislative requirement to install accelerometers in significant buildings to measure how they move in an earthquake. But in New Zealand it’s not. So Smart Cities is installing six, made by Trimble, in Christchurch Art Gallery to monitor it during an earthquake. Ms McCallum says it’s clear there’s a need for technology providing data to engineers about buildings’ safety, and to reduce the impact of their loss of earnings and productivity when buildings are evacuated as they wait for an engineer’s inspection. The monitoring network would monitor how the building holds up in a quake, provide information on whether it could be occupied and if it needs to be assessed urgently. •Turn to page 10

Smart ideas for city walk and when can be useful in planning a city, because it can lead to finding out why they choose to go some places and not others. Ms McCallum is looking at installing wi-fi sensors in parts of the city, particularly in Cathedral Square and New Regent St, to see the pedestrian flow. Sensors have been trialled in Re:Start Mall to see how it works. The sensors use technology, such as cellphones or laptops, to see where people will and won’t walk, and when, so they could improve it. Ms McCallum said they are completely anonymous and it was a work in progress. “It’s going to make this city a much better city to be in.”

Smart Bikes How do you get around when you go into the central city? In a new project, Smart Cities is looking at including a bike share system, which has been successfully trialled by Robert Henderson on the Metro network. Metrocard holders could use their cards to catch the bus into the central city and then use it to hire a bicycle to get around.

a victim impact statement read to the court. “And the way he left without checking on me, he thought he had succeeded.” She still can’t understand what sort of man would attack a woman five months pregnant with their own child. There has been “no serious impacts” on the baby, the court heard. Ashburton farm contractor Buick, 32, and the victim, who had been long-term friends and in an on-and-off relationship. But when she fell pregnant with their first child, Buick said he didn’t want her to keep the baby as he was seeing another Ashburton woman. Defence counsel Craig Ruane today said Buick was known as a “hard working and well respected young man” who has no previous convictions. In sentencing Buick, who sobbed in the dock, Judge Stephen O’Driscoll described the victim as “a courageous person” who tried to protect both herself and her unborn child during the attack. – NZ Herald

News Sex worker dispute could go to court

„„ By Andrew King A DISPUTE over sex workers being able to solicit in a residential area could be tested in the courts, a Christchurch lawyer said. St Albans resident Matt Bonis, along with solicitor and Labour candidate for Christchurch Central Duncan Webb presented a slide show to the city council detailing the rubbish, abuse, complaints and threats they have received. Mr Webb told Star.kiwi the dispute lies in the definition of “commercial activity” set out in the city council public places bylaw. City council head of strategic policy Helen Beaumont said sex workers do not use the billboards and banners that are typical of other business enterprises. But Mr Webb said they have got the definition “wrong” and the city council could enforce the bylaw. He said if it comes down to residents saying it is commercial activity, and the city council says it isn’t, then it will have to be tested in the courts.

Speaking at a CDHB committee meeting last week, specialist mental health services general manager Toni Gutschlag said the situation was becoming “volatile.” She said an “escalation meeting” had been planned with the Ministry of Health this week to discuss the problem. “Right now we’ve got major dynamics where patients are not getting on, and seeking one another out to harm each other,” she said. She said that was made more

That made it very difficult to separate violent patients, she said. “If they don’t have enough

space to get away from each other, the situation becomes more volatile,” she said. She said mental health services were also struggling to recruit staff, and had “a number of vacancies and workforce gaps.” Last month, New Zealand Nurses Organisation chief executive Memo Musa raised concerns that inexperienced staff were being placed in situations “they are not able to handle” because funding was inadequate and senior staff had left. Mental health problems seem to have particularly grown for Canterbury children and youth, with the number of new cases up 55 per cent over the past three years. The number of Canterbury children or youth accessing mental health services grew from 626 in January to 714 in February. The situation was made worse by a number of people with disabilities being “inappropriately placed” in mental health services because there were no community disability services appropriate for them, a report on the issue said.

Viewpoint Dire need for new homes IN THE wake of the Canterbury earthquakes, Greater Christchurch was in dire need of new homes. THe Government red-zoned more than 7000 properties on severely-damaged land to allow people to move on with their lives. THese land decisions and the widespread earthquake damage to hundreds of thousands of homes left the country’s secondbiggest city with a housing vacuum. Fast tracking the overhaul of Christchurch’s District Plan enabled the city’s regeneration to get off the ground more quickly and efficiently. Now, Greater Christchurch has double the amount of space it needs for new housing for the next decade and more than 130,000 building consents have been issued over the past five years. Selwyn and Waimakariri districts have experienced enormous growth since the quakes and opening up new land to development – both for commercial and residential use – has seen a construction boom in the region. I believe central and local Government have been

Gerry Brownlee

innovative and progressive in their thinking since the devastating quakes. Last year, the Riccarton Racecourse Development Enabling Act 2016 was passed to allow the development of Riccarton Racecourse land to go ahead. THis legislation is to

facilitate the timely residential development of surplus land held by the Christchurch Racecourse Reserve Trust. THe Riccarton Racecourse Development Scheme will supply affordable housing to Christchurch with requirements that a minimum of 180 homes need to sell for less than the KiwiSaver HomeStart cap for Christchurch, which is currently $550,000. THe affordability clause is integral in providing people on lower incomes or first-time buyers with the opportunity to buy their own home. THe amount of available land in Christchurch is a huge advantage. It means we can focus on getting people into homes while making the region a place where people come to work and play. •Gerry Brownlee is Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration

Readers respond to a legislation change that would allow the city council to decide whether electric vehicles could drive in special lanes such as bus lanes Ben Sandle – Stupid, just because it is electric with one person shouldn’t mean can use bus lane. Should make better public transportation. Tanya Hyde – Terrible idea. Just make it cheaper to own and run electric cars and easier to charge them. Besides most towns in New Zealand don’t have the infrastructure to support special lanes. Brian J. Dooley – It risks creating elites. Not many people can afford an electric car. This could have more profound negative issues than might be anticipated. Dave Moore – Yes, a special

lane for less than one per cent of the driving population, a bus lane, and a cycle lane. No lanes for anything else. Genius. Graeme Palmer – No. The best thing the council can do is provide plenty of charging points around the city. Dean Pover – Great idea, now let’s pinch a whole lot of golf carts and get ourselves a convoy. Rory Kinahan – Yes. Anything to motivate people to buy more of them. Trevor Taylor – Hell no. They pay nothing towards the upkeep of our roads. They are just freeloaders. Give them nothing. Jason Gemmill – Absolutely not.

Erin Brockovich: Warm, funny and genuinely concerned HANDS UP if anyone in Christchurch who watched the Erin Brockovich movie back in 2000 ever imagined that this champion of the underdog would be in our city telling us to keep up the fight? Seventeen years ago, the silver screen story of a legal executive who took on the corporate might of Pacific Gas and Electric Company on behalf of the people of Hinkley, California, seemed about as far removed from our reality as a movie about a trip to the moon. This week it all changed with Brockovich’s visit to

Christchurch. She spent time visiting the houses of people still dealing with insurance companies and EQC to settle their claims, repair their homes and move on with their lives. Her verdict on the situation was that the conditions they’re living in broke her heart. I had the pleasure of meeting

her on Monday night. She was warm and funny, and her genuine concern for the plight of people struggling to get their homes fixed and move on with their lives was obvious. Sometimes it’s easy to fall into the well-funded Government and industry spin about how many houses needed repairing

and how people need to be patient. Brockovich’s message, however, was less complicated. She saw money as the main reason the process has being dragged out for so long. People still living in broken homes needed answers yesterday, she said. I could not agree more. The fact that we have thousands of people who are yet to have their homes properly repaired is not acceptable. Even more unacceptable is the Government’s unwillingness to give any kind of timeframe to people about when they will

finally have resolution. Just last week when answering questions from me in Parliament, Gerry Brownlee backed out of an earlier commitment from EQC to have re-repairs sorted by June this year. Instead, he refused to commit to any deadline. People still waiting for their repairs have been let down by the National Government which has instead chosen to spend time and resources telling people they should be patient, rather than fighting for them. •Megan Woods is Labour’s Canterbury spokeswoman

News Little River speed limit too high

„„ By Caitlin Miles A LONG-TIME campaigner for lower speed limits in Little River is disappointed that traffic will still be able to go 60km/h through the hamlet. Little River Campground owner and Love Little River member Marcus Puentener said reducing the speed from 70km/h to 60km/h wasn’t what the community needed. A 50km/h limit had been sought. The Banks Peninsula Community Board has recommended the city council approve the speed reductions proposed by the New Zealand Transport Agency. Currently it is planning to reduce speed from 70km/h to 60km/h on Council Hill, Morrisons, Barclays and Wairewa Pa Rds, where they intersect with State Highway 75, as well as through the township. Mr Puentener set up a petition calling for the speed limit to be lowered from 70km/h to 50km/h. More than 1000 people signed it, and it was presented to NZTA in November 2015. However, in a review by NZTA on the current speed limit and an assessment of the safe and appropriate speed through the township, it could only support reducing the speed limit by 10km/h.

Police complaint finalised „„ By Caitlin Miles A COMPLAINT against Lyttelton police does not look like it will be upheld. Lyttelton resident and former detective Peter Newsome laid a complaint with the Minister of Police Paula Bennett about the level of service from police in the area. He said he made the complaint after police “fobbed off” two requests for help. The complaint was handed over to the Independent Police Conduct Authority and while the official decision has not yet been released, Canterbury area prevention manager, Acting Inspector Paul Reeves, said it looked “likely that it will be closed as conciliated” after meeting with Mr Newsome and the community. Judge Sir David Carruthers had been looking at the complaint from Mr Newsome and said he regarded the work carried out by the police to be “outstanding police work.” “​There were personal meetings with Mr Newsome and then a community meeting which involved a dozen residents. This was obviously a huge success,” Sir David said.

COMPLAINT: Former detective Peter Newsome may not have his complaint against Lyttelton police upheld. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER ​

However, Mr Newsome disagreed with those findings. “It wasn’t a huge success . . . it hasn’t reassured me,” he said. While he said it was good to see the police “front up” to the

community, he didn’t think it was well-attended, or that it reassured the residents. Mr Newsome wants to see the Lyttelton station staffed 24/7, but Canterbury metro

commander Superintendent Lane Todd said the police don’t have the resources to do that. “They explained themselves, but they need more police in low crime areas like Lyttelton,” Mr Newsome said. Acting Inspector Reeves said they realised from the meeting that they needed to be better at communicating with residents and keeping in touch with people. If Mr Newsome‘s complaint is not upheld, he said he wasn’t sure what he will do next but he wasn’t finished with the issue. “I need to have a think about what I’ll do next, but I’m not done yet,” he said.

Dispute over high country fence payment „„ By Tom Doudney CONCERNS HAVE been raised after ratepayers’ money was allocated to pay for a fence which critics say would have assisted its American leaseholder to intensify farming on a high country station. Environment Canterbury proposed putting $44,236 towards fencing off a section of Cave Stream and associated 35ha wetlands at Flock Hill Station in spite of its own ecologist Dr Philip Grove recommending the project not be funded. The funding, from ECan’s Immediate Steps programme for protecting freshwater biodiversity, was then approved by the Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee at its March 7 meeting on the basis that the John fence would proSunckell tect water quality and biodiversity in the stream and wetlands. Flock Hill’s leaseholder Flock Hill Holdings, owned by Jim Foster and Vince Saunders of Los Angeles-based Coast Range New Zealand, had applied for resource consent from the Selwyn

CONTENTIOUS: A project to fence a section of Cave Stream on Flock Hill Station is under fire.

District Council for vegetation clearance on nearby terraces so that it could intensify grazing on the land. It proposed fencing off Cave Stream as a way of mitigating the associated loss of biodiversity on the terraces. Last week the leaseholders withdrew the resource consent application after considering the cost of a landscape assessment which the district council had requested. The zone committee has since decided to review funding the fence after learning of the consent application’s withdrawal and hearing concerns by the Upper Waimakariri Group and Depart-

ment of Conservation plant ecologist Nicholas Head and water management co-ordinator John Benn who attended its meeting on Tuesday last week. Mr Head said the Cave Stream terraces had long been recognised as a site of significant ecological value with highly significant plant communities and land forms and the fencing project would assist with the application for vegetation clearance. “I struggle to see how this application can be consistent with ECan’s mandate,” he said. Mr Benn read out a letter he had received from Dr Grove which stated that he had

reviewed the project and recommended that it not be funded. Dr Grove was “frustrated” that the funding had been approved and he suggested that DOC and others continued to oppose such projects. “At our ECan staff end it is important that we clearly articulate to the zone committee why these sorts of projects do not help deliver on national or regional objectives for biodiversity and ecosystem health protection and apply a clear and unequivocal message to both project applicants and the zone committee that they should not receive ratepayer-funded support,” Dr Grove wrote.

ECan director science Dr Stefanie Rixecker said the concerns raised by DOC and others as well as the withdrawal of the consent application would be taken into account when ECan revisited the fencing proposal. ECan’s Mid Canterbury councillor John Sunckell defended the project, saying it had received a very high rating when going through an assessment process to determine if funding should be granted. He did not regard what Flock Hill Holdings wanted to do as intensification because it would be returning to similar stocking levels that were in place up until 25 years ago when wilding pines began to encroach on the land. Cr Sunckell said Flock Hill Holdings had already done “a magnificent job” with its previous environmental restoration work on the station, which is owned by Canterbury University. Selwyn mayor Sam Broughton said he would need to know more about the project before commenting on whether the funding was appropriate. Flock Hill representative Chris Cochrane did not respond to a request from the The Star for comment. The zone committee will consider the proposal on May 2.

Eli Haines

Brewer with the golden touch Three Boys brewer Eli Haines has just won gold at the New World Beer & Cider Awards for his new brew, West Coast Red IPA. He spoke to Gabrielle Stuart about what went into a good brew How did you get into brewing? Well, I left high school all ready to go into forestry, because I was interested in organic chemistry and things like that, and I already had an interest in beer. I was entirely enrolled, just needed to do the student loan paperwork, which I was set to do the next week. But then I met the head brewer from Cassels & Sons at the Woolston farmers’ market. I got talking to him and he said he was looking for someone, so I decided to forego university and take on an apprenticeship-type role at Cassels. What did your family think of that? My dad was less impressed, my mum liked it a bit more. But they both liked that I was going into work in an apprenticeship-like role, not just joining a circus or something. And what was the job like, initially? So my initial role was tidying up and scraping labels off bottles, that kind of thing. Then I moved up to scrubbing tanks and doing more of the hands on side of brewing. So wait – being allowed to clean the tanks was a promotion? This isn’t sounding very glamorous. That’s right – but the cleaning is very important, because everywhere the beer touches needs to be kept sterile. I still do a lot of cleaning of the tanks, so I’ve just graduated to cleaning bigger bottles, pretty much. That was seven years ago now, so I worked there for three years and did qualifications on the side, and

PROUD: Eli Haines with the West Coast Red IPA caramel type malts. Above – The Three Boys Brewery in Woolston. PHOTOS; GEOFF SLOAN

then applied for a role at Three Boys and took on a chief brewertype role. Could you explain to me in layman’s terms the science of brewing a good beer? In terms of what makes a good beer versus a bad one, the main thing is hygiene and sterility, only letting in one specific yeast, rather than letting in a lot of organisms. We take barley and soak that in water, which releases the enzymes which changes starches into sugars. Then we take the sugars out and sterilise them by boiling, and that’s when we add hops for bittering and stability and flavour. We call that brewer’s wort, it’s a syrup with hops in it, essentially. We then ferment that with a certain yeast strain, which takes sugar and converts it to alcohol, and at that point you can start calling it beer. Then we mature it and it becomes clear and carbonated.

How long does it take? To make the wort it takes one full day of brewing, then it ferments for about a week and conditions for about two weeks. So about three weeks in total. It’s a lot faster than spirits or wine. How do you develop your recipes? We have a little trial brew kit which produces about 50 litres at a time. So I’ll make a trial brew and test it with the team here and with my family and friends. If it’s good I scale it up, and if it’s bad we never talk about it again. What are some of the brews you haven’t taken to market? There are quite a few where the flavours work but we don’t think it would sell. I did a trial brew of an apple pie beer, which was really good, but we couldn’t see it selling particularly well. That sounds delicious. Well that’s good – I’ve got one customer then. At the moment

I’m trialling a peaches and cream IPA, so if that’s any good you’ll see it in the shop. Usually the bad ones don’t get too far. I’ll sometimes come up with weird flavours in my head and talk to my boss about them, but he tends to shut the worst ones down. And tell me about your new award-winning brew? It’s a West Coast Red IPA. The west coast of America is famed for intense hops, so I sourced a bunch of hops there, but also used a lot of caramel type malts. It’s a mix of sweet caramel toffee with these really intense American piney hops, with some hints of citrus and passion. So it’s a really strong blend of flavours that balance well together. People seem to be a lot more adventurous now with their beers. It means we can be a bit crazier with flavours and people are more accepting of it. So it’s

always a good thing more people are into beers, but on the other hand I have had a lot of very average home brew. People have been brewing beer for hundreds of years – do you think those ancient beers would taste the same? They would probably be along the same lines, because it has always been malt and hops and water for a long time now. But some of them would be quite strange because they didn’t have a knowledge of microbiology like we do now, so they were leaving that really important flavour step of the process completely up to chance, just whatever microflora was in the area at the time. And tell me a bit about your interests outside work? I enjoy surfing, and I host a radio show on RDU, Blue Mondays. We play alternative stuff, so I’m quite involved in the music scene in Christchurch, always looking for new music. And when you go out yourself, what beer would you drink? I really enjoying tasting other beer and trying something new. But sometimes you want the comfort of drinking something you know, so right now for me that would be our Three Boys lager, it’s a great beer.

Unlocking the secrets of Tasmania „„ By Mike Yardley DOCKING IN Hobart on a cruise ship is not just a sweetly scenic affair, but a stunningly effortless way to immerse yourself in the heart of the city. I regained my land legs on an eye-pleasing walk around the historic waterfront, in Sullivans Cove, where 19th-century sandstone warehouses brim with dockside cafes, artist studios and eateries. If you’re visiting on a Saturday, soak up the extravagant market flavours of Salamanca – Australia’s largest outdoor market. Also on the waterfront, pay your respects to the beautifully sculpted monument dedicated to the legendary explorer, Abel Tasman. It’s one of an increasing array of sublime sculptures, dotting the harbour edge. My chief assignment was to head down the Derwent River, to visit Australia’s most talked about museum. The Museum of Old and New Art, MONA, harbours a subterranean storehouse of eyepopping eccentricity. Six-yearsold, MONA was the brain child of Tasmanian, who made a fortune fine-tuning algorithms to beat bookies and casinos at their own game. Nicknamed “the subversive adult Disneyland”, entering MONA is more like falling down a rabbit hole.

in awe of the gigantic installation called “Bit.fall,” a rain-painting machine created by German artist Julius Popp. This multi-million dollar contraption comprises 128 computercontrolled nozzles, releasing cascading droplets in the shape of trending phrases harvested daily from news websites. This pulsing waterfall of words, streamed from real-time Google searches, is a clever, cascading ode to the unrelenting news cycle. I was lulled into a false sense of complacency. As I walked on, mulling whether MONA’s reputation for shockability was overhyped, I was suddenly confronted by the chocolate sculpture of the remains of a Chechen suicide

bomber. Stephen Shanabrook’s cast of a disembowelled suicide bomber rendered in chocolate is unsettling. One level up, a wall has been lined with more than 100 porcelain moulds of female genitalia, while another wall boasts a gigantic image of a man engaged in bestiality. It’s not hard to see why some art snobs sniff at MONA’s obsession with smut. But the centre-piece of MONA that repulses and engrosses in equal doses is called Cloaca Professional by Belgian artist, Wim Delvoye. This room-sized machine of giant test tubes, pumps and glass receptacles parodies the digestive tract of humans in lurid detail. Nicknamed the poop

machine, it’s fed twice a day, and you can watch the full digestive process of food unfold over three hours. I didn’t stay for the final act, but apparently the bi-product is absolutely pungent. Prior to reaching Hobart, I had crossed the Tasman with Princess Cruises. Notorious for offering cruisers the tumble-dryer ocean experience, I’d heard plenty of dire reports. But my two days at sea across the Tasman, were relatively plain sailing – no brown paper bags were required. Before reaching Hobart, the roll call of on-board entertainment made very short work of those two days at sea. There were Pilates and yoga classes, sports tournaments and quizzes, photography and health seminars, star-gazing courses and movies under the stars, on the giant screens crowning the pool deck. Sea days are also a fabulous opportunity to sneak a peek behind the scenes, on the tours of the galley and bridge. I marvelled at the culinary miracles crafted in the ship’s galley, while the sheer magnitude of cutting-edge technology deployed on the bridge is an eye-opener. But the extensive live entertain-

ment that unfurls throughout the ship, was seriously impressive. Princess Cruises has partnered with The Voice to present The Voice of the Ocean, featuring a competitive cast of passengers battling against each other for supreme honours. The quality was exceptional. However, the signature production was a Broadway-calibre musical called Magic to Do, created for Princess Cruises by the producer of Wicked, Stephen Schwartz. So even if the Tasman is turbulent, rest assured, you’ll be thoroughly entertained.

FAST FACTS

•Princess Cruises operates a series of transtasman cruises over the summer season, with five ships currently home-ported down under. An extensive schedule of sailings from New Zealand to Hobart will resume later in the year, in the 2017/18 summer months.

GRAPEFRUIT is one of winter’s colourful citrus jewels. Packed with antioxidants just when we need them, the grapefruit is a popular fruit tree to have in the home garden. The fruit may be an acquired taste as it can be rather sour, but there are a few tricks to draw out its sweetness. In the United States, where grapefruit are a breakfast staple, they are much sweeter because of the way they are grown. Most commercial grapefruit orchards are in the hot states, such as Florida, where they are grown with irrigation. In spite of this, grapefruit are one of the most coldtolerant citrus fruits and will withstand some frost. When selecting the place to plant your tree, find the hottest part of your property, ideally with a masonry wall to release heat to help sweeten the fruit. To get the most sweetness and ripeness from the fruit, leave it on the tree for a long

time – it can take up to 14 months to ripen properly. The variety you choose is also important. „„ By Henri Ham Wheeny grapefruit takes IT’S EASY to think that a long time to produce impending winter means fruit – this variety no more colour in the tends to produce fruit garden. biennially.

When is the best time to cut down or cut back perennials for winter?

Today’s winning question came from Barry. Congratulations!

Most perennials are usually cut back in late April/early May when the top growth has died down. It is also an ideal time to lift and divide your perennials where overcrowding has occurred.

Not all perennials die down in autumn; for instance with evergreen perennials, some pruning is required to remove old growth that has produced the previous season’s flowers. Doing this will enable the plant to produce healthy new shoots in spring that will carry the flowers for that season. There are a wide selection of flowering perennials available in garden centres from April/May. Some varieties you can try are; Alstroemeria, Asters, Astilbe, Cannas, Iris, Nemesia, Pansies, Phlox, Polyanthus, Primulas and Snapdragons. Start planting your winter prennials now. Prepare the soil first by adding plenty of fresh Daltons Compost along with Daltons Premium Flower Bed Mix, and thoroughly work it into the existing soil.

Most perennials prefer a sunny well drained site, however there are some that thrive in difficult shady or semishady spots in your garden, for example Hellebores or Hostas. For more advice and varieties to grow, read the How to Grow Garden Colour guide at www.daltons.co.nz/how-to-guides

The Meaning of Easter Fluffy rabbits, baby chicks, candy hunts and coloured eggs represent the images of Easter. Beautifully decorated baskets filled with a variety of chocolates create lifelong memories for children, while the tantalising aroma of hot cross buns lingers in the air. For many these thoughts are the first things that usually come to mind, but they don’t represent the history behind the reason we celebrate Easter each year. What exactly is the meaning of Easter and why does the world recognize and celebrate this historic event?

Theatre/Arts

Creating a market for older shows „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding BEN McDONALD wasn’t at the National Academy of Singing and Dramatic Art long before he realised a life behind the scenes was calling for him. At 16 he produced his own variety concert as part of a high school project which sold out the St James Theatre two nights in a row in Gore. With this in mind, it wasn’t long after McDonald (left) graduated that he set up his own company Ben McDonald Ltd. Now after producing more than 50 productions McDonald, 36, will present three major shows at the Isaac Theatre Royal this year. A Broadway-themed variety concert, a popular musical and a comedy about four Kiwis embarking on a trip to Italy are all on the cards for McDonald this year. Broadway to the West End, The Sound of Music and Four Flat Whites in Italy are all to

be staged and produced by the Rangiora resident this year. Having a passion for creating opportunities for performers McDonald said the city is one of the strongest in the country for New Zealand theatre particularly since the February 22, 2011, earthquake. Even at a time when there was

little performing arts in the city post-earthquake, McDonald saw an opportunity to set up a make-shift theatre in Hagley Park. The Canterbury Celebration Theatre was set up for singers, dancers and musicians to perform to audiences of 200 people twice a day and ran for

about a month shortly after the earthquake. The marquee theatre was so successful McDonald decided to run another season at Hagley Park and Riccarton Bush. “It was a wonderful thing to be part of . . . there were no other venues at all. It was just something to do,” he said. In spite of many theatre companies in the city often undertaking financially viable shows, McDonald believes there is a market for “older” shows such as The Sound of Music in the city. “That is something we do that the likes of the operatic and consortium shows won’t touch because they want to do the big modern shows,” he said. In spite of not taking on a stage career, McDonald enjoyed his time at NASDA and said he now often employs a lot of the graduates from the school. “I couldn’t have done a better thing. It didn’t teach me what I am doing now but I couldn’t have done anything else. I am very fond of NASDA,” he said. •To find out more about McDonald’s three shows at the Isaac Theatre Royal go to http://isaactheatreroyal. co.nz/

City composer for prestigious workshop „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding ONE OF the city’s most promising composers will travel to New York to study the art of orchestral music for film. Matt Everingham, 22, has been accepted into New York University/ASCAP’s film scoring summer workshop. He has been selected to study with musicians from all around the world and learn from well-known composers including Mark Snow next month. At the end of the workshop musicians on the course will arrange a piece of music to be recorded with the New York University orchestra.  “I have always been interested in how music tells stories . . . how music can narrate storylines and emphasise things you wouldn’t normally thing,” he said.  He has made a mark in the city’s musical theatre industry at a relatively young age, playing the piano, directing and composing for companies including The Court Theatre and Showbiz Christchurch.

FRee WeekLY maGaZine

Sharp price for new Impreza THIRTEEN YEARS ago I guided an acquaintance into a new car, it was a Subaru Impreza and it was a car which was priced at $25,000 with four-wheeldrive and 2-litre engine. My friend still has that car and it has now travelled fault-free over 200,000km, scheduled maintenance has been the only service cost. I remember writing at the time how much of a bargain that car was, and if finances at the time had allowed, I may well have purchased an Impreza as well. Well, nothing has changed, I still can’t afford a new car and now Subaru has another new Impreza available at a budget price. For just $5000 more than the new price in 2004, the new-generation model represents amazing value, and it is stacked with value features, items which you wouldn’t ordinarily expect in a budget car. The new generation model gets Eye-sight driver assist technology, a camerabased system which is linked to adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, pre-collision assist and pedestrian avoidance. Other features for comfort and convenience include automatic stop-start as a fuel saving measure, keyless entry and ignition, Apple Car Play and Android Auto capability, along with the usual features modern cars include as a matter of course. The new Impreza still has the traditional 2-litre, flatfour (boxer) engine. It has been developed to a point where it is state-of-the-art in terms of power outputs, emission control and fuel efficiency. In terms of figures, the quad-camshaft unit is rated at 115kW and 196Nm, while a 6.6-litre per 100km/h (42mpg) combined cycle fuel usage average is claimed by Subaru. That works well with the 8l/100km (35mpg) figure showing on the comprehensive trip computer, along with a 5l/100km (56mpg) instantaneous figure cruising the 100km/h legal limit (engine speed 1600rpm). Drive is channelled to all four wheels through a continuously variable automatic transmission. Not only does the four-

wheel-drive system alleviate the fear of grip loss on loose surfaces, there is a lot of natural grip supplied on the seal, the Impreza has handling ability which is unrealistic for this class of car. In the first instance, grip is supplied by 205/50 x 17in Bridgestone Turanaza tyres, and even though they aren’t Bridgestone’s sport specification rubber, the tyres have prodigious grip. If you add in a flat and controlled body balance and drive channelled constantly through to all wheels, the handling balance is biased towards sporty. • Price – Subaru Impreza, $29,990 • Dimensions – Length, 4460mm; width, 1775mm; height, 1480mm • Configuration – Fourcylinder, four-wheeldrive, 1995cc, 115kW, 196Nm, continuously variable automatic. • Performance – 0-100km/h, 9.3sec • Fuel usage – 6.6l/100km

That comes without the springs and dampers being overly firmed, ride quality is still paramount to the Subaru way of manufacture. I took the test car on a loop that took in both sealed and unsealed surfaces and I’m pleased to report that for what would be deemed an everyday family sedan, the Impreza imparts a sporty handling sensation. Power is directed freely through the transmission. In this form the Impreza doesn’t get the turbocharging system of its WRX stablemates, but it is an honest, punchy engine. I’ve written many times how much natural torque hor-

izontally-opposed engines develop, and the Impreza’s naturally-aspirated unit is a honey. In my introduction I mentioned the high level of specification. Another useful feature are the steering wheel-mounted paddles which the driver can use to initiate ratio changes within the CVT system. There’s also a sequential system at the main gearshift lever itself, but as a driver you can be lured into a sporty sensation if you utilise the paddles. However, first and foremost, the Impreza caters for the family unit. While sedans are fast losing popularity, I’m still a bit of a fan and I’m quite smitten with Subaru product; together I’d be sold on the Impreza in this form. On-board comfort is high and space for three rear occupants isn’t overly compromised by compact exterior dimensions. Up front the seats are body forming and have a vast range of adjustment and, as you would expect from Subaru, the controls fall easily to hand. Subaru’s line-up isn’t extensive, but the company is far more than a global niche market player. All of the models offered here are functional and practical, each designed for a different role. The Impreza is there to tempt as an entry level car into the brand. Just like my friend, those who do choose to buy Subaru will be rewarded with reliability, functionality and a high level of safety, much of the latter attributed to the stability and grip fourwheel-drive offers. You’d had better be quick, though, from what I’ve heard through industry sources the Impreza in this form is only available in limited numbers and is selling fast.

Raiders to test Warriors defensive resolve THE WARRIORS are growing in confidence after consecutive wins – but back-rower Ryan Hoffman says Saturday’s away clash with Canberra will provide a thorough test of their ability. The Warriors attacking play has begun to blossom over the last fortnight but it’s their much improved defence that has earned crucial victories over the Gold Coast and Parramatta. Confidence and belief is

growing throughout the side but Hoffman knows the flamboyant Raiders will test their defensive resolve after racking up 13 tries in the last two weeks in big wins over the Eels and Titans. “I’d rather be going in there with two wins rather than two losses,” said Hoffman. “Canberra is certainly a very tough road trip but we’ve got some confidence and we’re certainly looking forward to the

challenge.” After managing just one win from the first four rounds, the Warriors have improved their record to be three-and-three after six games to occupy 10th spot on the premiership ladder. The turnaround in the last three weeks has been encouraging, with the Warriors limiting both the Dragons and Eels to one second-half try each, and holding the Titans scoreless

proved tackling but knows there will be periods in every match where his players will be tested as the opposition rides a swing in momentum. “We’ve got one of the real challenges in the NRL at the moment, going to play a Canberra team, the way they’re playing,” he said. “It’s about making sure that we prepare well to perform well.” – NZ Herald

through the final 40 minutes of last week’s come-from-behind win. “Parramatta have got a lot of points in them and we managed to keep them to 10 points so our defence is coming along,” said Hoffman. “We still have areas to improve but we’re certainly heading in the right direction.” Coach Stephen Kearney is satisfied with the Warriors im-

Sport In Brief CANTY BOWLERS LOSE SEMIS Canterbury’s men’s and women’s teams both bowed out at the semifinal stage of the national under-8s inter-centre in Christchurch at the weekend. More than 20 provinces competed at eight different Christchurch clubs. The Canterbury women’s team was on track to defend their title before being beaten by Dunedin. The men’s team was eliminated by Waikato. HIGH SCHOOL GOLFERS Christchurch Boys’ High School students Tom Parker and Dominic Brettkelly finished in a tie for third at the Australian boys amateur championship in Wollongong. The pair finished the four-round tournament on four under par, three shots behind tournament winner Cameron John from Australia. Parker held the clubhouse lead going into the final round before a final round score of 73 saw him slip down the order. The prize for the tournament winner included a spot in this year’s Australian Open. NZ UNIVERSITY TEAM Five Lincoln and two Canterbury university players have been named in the New Zealand Universities rugby squad for their two-match internal tour this month. Lincoln’s Jack Stratton will captain the side. He’s joined by teammates Caleb Makene, Jono Osbourne, Chris Gawler and Harrison Groundwater. Sam Godwin and Nigel Gibb will represent Canterbury University. NZU will face the Bay of Plenty Wasps in Mt Maunganui on Anzac Day.

Two codes for coach „„ By Gordon Findlater MARTIN Field-Dodgson will put a new spin on codehopping when he starts in a role at Mainland Football later this month. Field-Dodgson, 39, has a strong background in rugby which includes a number of roles in development and coaching at the top level in Europe. He will soon transfer those skills to football when he starts as the community football manager for Mainland Football. He will still play a big part in rugby, in his first season coaching the Sumner Rugby Club division one side. “Some people have said you’re going to join the enemy but in the modern day and age the real enemy is doing nothing and computer games,” said Field-Dodgson. “The real driver for me is that kids are doing something, that’s the main thing.” In terms of football this will be his first true role in the sport. “I had a run around for the Cashmere Wanderer’s (now Cashmere Technical) as an eight or nine-year-old, that’s the extent of my football prowess,” said Field-Dodgson. Although he may not hold an extensive background in football, Mainland Football CEO

JUGGLER: Martin FieldDodgson will work in two codes this winter as Mainland Football’s new community manager and as Sumner rugby coach. PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

Julian Bowden believes the organisation is getting someone with a huge skill set. “His varied background shows a great knowledge of club systems and structures so he was a standout for us,” said Bowden. “The fact he’s actually come from another code I find quite exciting because I think there is a whole lot we can learn from each other.” A connection between Mainland Football and Sumner Rugby Club isn’t something new.

Bowden spent two seasons playing for the top Sumner side in the late 90s. Former All White Ben Sigmund also played on the wing for Sumner during a break from football. Field-Dodgson returned to Canterbury last year after 10 years in Italy working in various roles including academy manager and assistant coach at Pro12 team Benetton Treviso. Pro12 is a European competition, contested by the top Italian, Irish, Welsh and Scottish teams. In previous years, All

Blacks such as John Kirwan and Craig Green have played for the club. “It was an incredible experience in terms of learning,” said Field-Dodgson. He has held a number of development roles before his time in Italy. After finishing physical education studies at University of Otago he spent a number of years working with the Queensland Rugby Union. Field-Dodgson begins the new role on April 26.

Former distance runner makes a splash in triathlon „„ By Gordon Findlater A SUCCESSFUL background in middle distance running looks to have set Southshore triathlete Ari Graham on a path to glory. Graham, 18, won the recent Sea2Sky Challenge in Sumner, the latest of many achievements. She competed in last year’s national track and field championships in Dunedin, winning both the under-18 800m and 1500m titles. She is also a champion cross-country runner and has previously represented New Zealand at secondary school level. After trying her hand at a couple of school triathlons she made the bold move to turn her full attention to triathlon and it’s now paying dividends. Graham has taken a gap year following her final year at St Andrew’s College and is currently working part-time and training full-time with the Canterbury Triathlon Academy. Over the summer, she competed in the National Junior Series, which is contested between the top under-19-year-olds in the country over five events. Graham

RISING STAR: After making the switch from middle distance running, Ari Graham has dominated in her first year of triathlon. PHOTO: AT PHOTO

not only won the series, she took out all five events. “I was really shocked with how well it went in my first year of triathlon. Every time I competed I wasn’t really expecting to win. I was just excited to compete and learn from racing,” said Graham. Graham has always been a strong swimmer and runner.

She has been hard at work on her cycling with coach Axel Reiser to develop her technique and bunch-riding tactics this year. The weeks are busy with four pool, three run and three cycle sessions. To keep it competitive, she spends most of her time training with a lot of the top boys at the academy.

“It’s about putting her into an environment where she’s being pushed,” said Reiser. He believes that Graham shows all the signs for them to be hopeful about her development. However, like all young athletes, there are a lot of factors in the future which will determine what she could go on to achieve.

“If you look at her times and compare that to previous Olympic champions, then she is now faster than them at this stage,” said Reiser. Graham currently competes over the sprint distance, which consists of a 750m swim, 20km bike and 5km run, half the length of the sport’s Olympic distance. She’s been able to get a good gauge of where she wants to get to. Since dedicating her time to triathlon, she has had the opportunity to work alongside New Zealand’s top female triathlete Andrea Hewitt. They swim together under the guidance of Roly Crichton, who trains New Zealand’s most successful Paralympian Sophie Pascoe. “I used to train with Roly at QE II when I was younger,” said Graham. “I’ve always kept in touch with him and, when I finished school, I was able to train with him again. “Andrea is really east to talk to and it’s amazing being able to train with someone who’s so accomplished.”

“Buying a property is a complex and potentially stressful process, not least because it involves such a scary amount of money,” says Kevin Lampen-Smith, chief executive at the Real Estate Agents Authority (REAA). “It’s smart to do as much as you can to reduce the risk of unwelcome surprises or unexpected costs further down the line.” In the first instance, Lampen-Smith recommends drawing up a list of questions to ask about properties you’re interested in. “Remember that you can ask the real estate agent anything you like about the property,” he says. “They are also required to tell you everything they know and not withhold any details.” If you’re not sure what to ask, here’s a handy list of questions. Open homes can be busy, so ask the agent if you can talk on the phone, or send questions via email. - Have there been any issues with the property, such as earthquake damage or water-tightness? - Are there any offers on the property, or have any contracts been cancelled by potential buyers? - How long has it been on the market? What is the seller’s preferred settlement date?

- What maintenance, repairs or improvements have been carried out? Do these have permits? - Is there a Land Information Memorandum (LIM) available or a building report prepared by an accredited property surveyor? - Is the property well-maintained? What condition are the roof, piles, wiring, and plumbing in? - Is the property insulated? If so, to what degree (eg walls, underfloor, ceiling)? - Is there any risk of methamphetamine (P) contamination? - If there is a body corporate (usually for apartments), what does that entail? - Are there any issues with neighbours or planned developments? “If you are seriously considering making an offer, you will need to do your own research and seek professional advice. It may well become your home, so you need to know as much about it as possible to save unhappy surprises later,” LampenSmith says. “Knowing the right questions to ask is a good starting point.” For more advice on buying a property in New Zealand, or to download a free Home Buyers’ Guide, visit buyingahome.reaa.govt.nz.

NOTIFICATION OF LIFTING OF PROHIBITED FIRE SEASON

NOTICE OF LIFTING OF FIRE BAN IN THE OPEN AIR WITHIN THE CITY OF CHRISTCHURCH

(Imposed Pursuant to section 22(2) of the Forest and Rural Fires Act 1977)

CHRISTCHURCH CITY RURAL FIRE AREA INCLUDING BANKS PENINSULA Notice is hereby given that the prohibited fire season currently imposed by the Christchurch City Council over the rural fire area for which the Council is the Fire Authority is lifted from 7am on Saturday, 8 April 2017, to be replaced by an OPEN FIRE SEASON. Fires may now be lit in the open air in rural areas without permit. Restrictions may be reimposed at a later date if weather conditions create a potentially dangerous fire situation. All residents are requested to take care when lighting open fires. Before lighting fires in the open air, careful consideration must be given to weather conditions, adequacy of fire breaks, availability of water, and the patrolling of fires until completely out. Fires are not to be left burning after dark. NOTE:

Resource Consent conditions imposed by Environment Canterbury may still apply. Property owners within the Department of Conservation Fire Safety Margin require a permit all year round. Relevant authorities should be contacted prior to any burning. Darrin Woods PRINCIPAL RURAL FIRE OFFICER www.ccc.govt.nz

Christchurch City Council is lifting its ban on fires in the open air in urban areas. The ban, which has been in place since Saturday, 14 January 2017, will be lifted from 7am on Saturday, 8 April 2017 until further notice. The existing prohibition on fires in the open air is imposed pursuant to Section 13 of the Christchurch City Council Urban Fire Safety Bylaw 2014 and is in force for properties not zoned residential in Christchurch City and within the Urban Fire Districts of Christchurch, Brooklands, New Brighton, Sumner, Lyttelton, Governors Bay, Diamond Harbour, Little River and Akaroa. Fires may now be lit in the open air in the urban areas without permit. Restrictions may be re-imposed at a later date if weather conditions create a potentially dangerous fire situation. Before lighting fires in the open air, careful consideration must be given to weather conditions, the risk of spread, adequacy of fire breaks, availability of water, and the supervision of fires until completely out. Fires must only be lit in daylight hours and must not be left burning after dark. Note: Environment Canterbury places resource consent conditions on fires in residential areas. Landowners in these areas should contact Environment Canterbury for further information. Tracey Weston UNIT MANAGER REGULATORY COMPLIANCE www.ccc.govt.nz

CHANGES TO PERMITTED DEPOTS AND TEMPORARY ACCOMMODATION FOR PEOPLE DISPLACED BY EARTHQUAKES Under Clause 7(3)(a) and Clause 8(3)(a) of the Canterbury Earthquake (Resource Management Act Permitted Activities) Order 2011 Following the February 2011 earthquake many residents and businesses were displaced from their usual homes or premises. Depots and storage facilities were urgently required for earthquake recovery. The Canterbury Earthquake (Resource Management Act Permitted Activities) Order 2011 enabled the Council to, by public notice, permit depots and storage facilities and temporary accommodation for displaced people and businesses, that would otherwise not comply with the City and District Plans. On 9 April 2011 the Council issued a public notice that permitted temporary accommodation and depots throughout the City if they complied with general standards in that notice. At its meeting on 22 September 2016 the Council resolved to issue a new public notice to change the scope of the permitted temporary activities and the associated policy. This was due to the time elapsed since the earthquakes, issues arising over time as a result of temporary accommodation approvals, the progress of the rebuild, legislation extending the timeframe for temporary activities under the 2011 Order, and the Replacement District Plan including rules providing for temporary activities. The standards for depots and storage facilities and temporary accommodation are hereby amended in the following ways: • Temporary residential accommodation is no longer permitted by general standards. • Temporary depots and storage facilities are no longer permitted by general standards. • Site specific temporary activity approval or a resource consent will now be required for these activities if they do not comply with the rules in the Christchurch District Plan.

For all your important notices, advertise in The Star, where it will be seen by 179,000 people every Thursday.

The effect of these amendments is to remove all remaining standards for permitted activities under the Order in Council.

For professional, helpful service, Phone 379-7100

Any temporary activity established under these provisions shall not create or give rise to any existing use right in respect of any land, activity, or structure (refer clause 5(3) of the Canterbury Earthquake (Resource Management Act Permitted Activities) Order 2011).

The associated policy, as amended, can be viewed on the Council website. The amendments will take effect from the date of this notice and amend those advertised in previous public notices. The amendments do not affect activities that have been lawfully established under the existing standards prior to this public notice. This notice relates to temporary accommodation, as defined in the Canterbury Earthquake (Resource Management Act Permitted Activities) Order 2011. All other statutory requirements and regulations applying to the activity or site (e.g. building consent, animal control, resource consent from Environment Canterbury, Ministry of Education standards, liquor licensing or health licensing) must also be complied with.

If you have any questions or require further information, please visit the Christchurch City Council website www.ccc.govt.nz, or phone 941-8999 and ask to speak to the Duty Planner. John Higgins HEAD OF RESOURCE CONSENTS www.ccc.govt.nz
