West Melton runners best in the mud WEST MELTON School finished as one of the top teams in the 2017 UC Education Mud Run on Sunday. The school’s team, the D*O*T*S, made up of pupils Daisy, Otis, Ted and Stacey, won the mixed teams race coming fifth overall in all the events against about 250 other teams.

St Thomas of Canterbury College were first in the men’s race, while St Margaret’s College came first in the women’s race. Nearly 1000 students and 50 teachers, representing 34 schools sprinted, splashed their way through a muddy racetrack at Motukarara. The mud run was open to all

secondary and intermediate schools. Sport Canterbury chief executive Julyan Falloon said it is an event students and teachers looked forward to every year. “In particular, we see a tremendous response from young women who embrace the chance to set a winter time goal,

get a team together and enjoy a sense of achievement,” he said. Mr Falloon said there is a huge social element and sense of fun in the event. When the event was conceived in 2011, it was a perfect fit for post-quake Christchurch. •Turn to page 7

„„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding ROLLESTON’S population is growing so quickly it may need a new cemetery. Discussions have been under way at the district council around land capacity in the Rolleston area and people wanting to bury loved ones close to where they lived. The growing township’s closest cemeteries are based in Weedons and on Shands Rd. Doyleston Community Committee chairman Jack Pearcy called for a new cemetery that would meet the anticipated future size of the township in his Annual Plan submission.  Jack Pearcy Rolleston is expected to reach nearly 18,000 by 2025. As of July 1, 2016, Rolleston’s population was 13,287. But instead of looking at a new cemetery as part of the 2017/2018 Annual Plan, the district council has decided to hold off and look at the provision of cemeteries as part of its future District Plan review and asset management plans.  Weedons Cemetery is about 5km and Shands Rd Cemetery is about 11km distance from Rolleston. •Turn to page 10

Inside

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK THERE’S A grave situation developing in Selwyn – the district is going to need more cemeteries. Rolleston appears to be the first cab off the rank as we reveal on page 1. In eight years the town’s population will reach 18,000, accelerating like the rest of the district. Discussions have been held about land capacity in and around Rolleston for another cemetery. The district council hasn’t factored a new cemetery into its Annual Plan, but has signalled cemeteries will be on the agenda for future District Plan reviews. Something I suspect all of us don’t really want to think too much about. On a more cherry note – if you are a Waihora rugby supporter – they turned the tables on Southbridge at the weekend.

News No plan yet for road repair „„ By Georgia O’Connor-Harding AN UNSEALED section of a road in central Lincoln is unlikely to be fixed until next year at the earliest. Residents have been calling for about two thirds of West Belt to be sealed north of the Gerald St intersection. The road is littered with pot holes which fill up with water when it rains and makes it a bumpy ride for Grant Miller residents when they are driving into and leaving their properties. An idea to spend $50,000 on sealing and parking was turned down at the annual plan submission deliberations held recently. The road will now be considered as part of the  2018-2028 Long Term Plan. Selwyn Times reported in November the sealing of the road would be considered as part of the estimated $36.6 million worth of roading and infrastructure upgrades as part of the Lincoln Town Centre Plan.

District councillor Grant Miller said he was disappointed the project did not get approved at the deliberations. “I wanted to see it happen this year but I didn’t win that battle . . . it is still happening but it is not going to happen as fast as I would have liked,” he said. At the deliberations, Cr Miller said when attending the community meetings he gets asked the same question about the road and it is difficult to answer. His vote was recorded against the project being held off to

be budgeted for the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan. Deputy Mayor Malcolm Lyall said West Belt has been a concern for the ratepayers of Lincoln for at least 10 years. Mr Lyall said he was disappointed a project to upgrade Tosswill Rd, outside the Prebbleton Domain was also turned down at the annual plan deliberations. “It is a grassed area that really needs to be sealed and angled park because we get about a thousand people playing touch

throughout the week and there are cars for miles,” he said. It was decided, the project estimated to cost $95,000 would be held over to the next Long Term Plan process. Mr Lyall said he is hopeful West Belt at least may be able to be done in an underspend in the annual plan budget. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Are you frustrated by the roading conditions of West Belt?

In Brief WALK TO BE IMPROVED The Arthur’s Pass Association Committee is planning to extend and improve the Arthur’s Pass Historic Village Walk with a new loop track and new information plaques over the winter. The new track will go through long-time resident John Charles’ track and property which runs along the Bealey River flats. About 24 information panels will be installed which includes replacing and exisitng the old ones. The cost of installing the panels along with printing brochures for visitors is $3000. FIRE RECOVERY PLAN The district council has approved the Port Hills Fire Recovery Plan for Selwyn areas affected by the fire. The plan will provide a framework to enable the provision of coordinated effort and processes to manage social, built, economic and natural environment issues arising from the fire. The plan was released for consultation with Port Hills property owners and the public. A range of future actions are identified in the plan. These include setting up a facilitated building consent process for people who are planning to carry out repairs or build new houses following fire damage, with consents being prioritised.

Look a little deeper at the action being taken to improve our precious water. This year, there are new requirements on farmers to limit the effects of farming on water quality. The majority of farmers are already doing the right thing, but more needs to be done to truly improve our precious water. We are working with farmers so that they know exactly what they need to do. It will take time for these improvements to have an effect on our water quality and quantity, but we’re off to a good start. Look a little deeper at

Changing attitudes lower the number

„„ By Bridget Rutherford DRINK DRIVING charges have almost halved in Canterbury over the past decade – a shift police say is down to changed attitudes. The latest drink driving figures show the number of people charged for driving under the influence of alcohol in Canterbury was 1658 last year, compared with 2543 in 2007. Of those, 1604 were convicted last year. There were 2433 convictions in 2007. Nationally, the number has dropped from 27,328 a decade ago, compared with 16,304 in 2016. Canterbury road policing manager Inspector Al Stewart (left) said police were encouraged by the downward trend. “The trauma and grief caused by an alcohol-related serious crash is massive, so less people affected by alcohol on our roads make them safer for all road users and reduces harm in our communities.” He said changing public attitudes to drink driving was the reason for the decline. It

was not seen as acceptable any more, he said. Inspector Stewart said police had made strategic efforts targeting alcohol harm, especially on the roads. “This has been supported by the lower drink driving limits which have encouraged people to think about their drinking

behaviour and plan to make it home safely.”   The breath-alcohol limit was lowered from 400mcg/L to 250mcg/L in December, 2014. But the limit that triggered prosecution at court was 400mcg/L. The latest stats did not include the number of people given an infringement notice for driving

over the 250mcg/L limit since it changed. But in 2014, the number of people charged in Canterbury was 2235, before dropping to 1852 in 2015 and again in 2016. Bars and pubs have noticed people are more aware of what they were drinking, with many patrons now choosing light beers

and wines. The Lincoln Club, which operates the Famous Grouse Hotel, has seen a drop-off in patronage since the drink driving limits were lowered. President Lynn Townsend said people were choosing to drink at home. Mr Townsend said the hotel had two courtesy vans to get people home safely and a range of low alcohol beers. He said the low alcohol beverages available gives people the option of having a couple of beers without having too much. Hotel manager Will Stock said the vans are used regularly by patrons in the evening.

Southbridge Hotel manager Gagandeep Vashisht said the hotel has courtesy vans and a proper menu of food available to prevent drink driving. He said the hotel had not have a loss of patronage due to more people at home due to the hotel providing live bands. Sheffield Hotel owner Desrae Johnson said the attitude against drink driving had greatly improved and it uses the courtesy van a lot more than in the past. “We have a full restaurant here, we have an extensive bar and menu that takes priority . . . we have a low alcohol on tap,we have low alcohol in the fridge and we have non alcohol beverages available all the time,” she said.

driving, he said. “Police will continue to enforce alcohol-related offending at a high level to reduce the trauma and family harm that results from it.”

•A 38-year-old woman was caught drink driving more than four times the legal limit with her two young children in Rolleston. Melanie Susan Trebilco pleaded guilty to a charge of driving with excess blood alcohol after being caught at a random stop on Tennyson St on December 9. Her alcohol level was 1157mcg/L. Police said she refused to let officers escort her three and nine-year-old children, as the car did not have car seats. She was disqualified from driving for eight months, and fined $1000 in January. •On the same day, another Rolleston mother recorded a reading of 696mcg/L when stopped in Faringdon subdivision with her four-year-old child in the car. The 35-yearold was pulled over after failing to stop at a stop sign.

•Well-known race car driver and businessman Paul Kelly was caught by police doing a burnout in a classic car outside a Christmas party while under the influence. The 47-year-old had been drinking for the day on December 16 and blew 853mcg/L. He was disqualified from driving for six months and fined $600. • Sarah Jane Arrow was on a zero-alcohol licence when she got behind the wheel after drinking last year. The 45-year-old was driving along Main Rd, four times the legal limit, and failed to take a bend, crashing into pedestrian Ben Appleton. He flew 2m onto the rocks below, suffering two broken legs, and a fractured skull and spine. In September Arrow was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison and was banned from driving for the rest of her life. She was ordered to pay $2500 in reparation to Mr Appleton. It was her fourth conviction for drink driving.

When Bev found out she was able to bring her mini schnauzer Molly to her Summerset retirement village, she was thrilled. “Molly is very important to me, I wouldn’t have wanted to make the move without her.” After being at Summerset for only a few months, Bev was surprised at how quickly she settled into village life. She really likes the feeling that she’s secure and that help is always at hand should she need it. She says that living at Summerset has given her a great sense of relief, “Now I can relax.”

Complex for seniors gets $25k „„ Georgia O’Connor-Harding A NEW residential complex for over 65-year-olds, single or widowed in the community, is now one step closer to opening in Leeston. The Ellesmere Vintage Club has presented a $25,000 cheque towards completing the Abbeyfield Ellesmere complex. A tractor raffle and vintage fair fundraiser, which showcased more than 100 vintage and classic tractors dating from the early 1900s, was held earlier this year. It was organised by the club to help raise funds for the home. After eight years of planning by local volunteers, construction of the Flannery St complex began last year. The complex will be the first of its kind to be built in Selwyn and is expected to be completed in October or November. The overall cost of the complex is to be $2.5 million and the committee has raised $2.1 million. “Our current target for fundraising is a further $400,000 and this generous donation of $25,000 goes a long way in getting us closer to our target,” committee chairman Bruce

GENEROUS: The Ellesmere Vintage Club with a $25,000 cheque they raised for the Abbeyfield Ellesmere committee. ​

ON THE WAY: Construction on a new residential complex in Leeston is under way with the building expected to open later this year.

Cochrane said. Residents living in the house, owned by The Vintage Village Trust, will be given weekly

rental to cover meals, rates, insurance and power. Members of the community considering applying for the

complex are required to be able to care for their personal needs independently. Mr Cochrane said he would like to thank Ellesmere Vintage Club chairman Stu Donald and his committee along with Southbridge-based Palmers Transport founders Brian and Averil Palmer for donating their Massey Harris Pony tractor for the raffle. To make a further donation to the complex phone Mr Cochrane on 027 432 9378 or committee member Murray Stephens on 027 221 6189.

West Melton runners beat the mud •From page 1 Countless young people were affected by the sudden and dramatic change to their sporting landscape – with facilities lost and clubs presented with the ultimate challenge. From the start, Sport Canterbury had a vision for the unique secondary schools event. “The event helped reach out to those students who may not participate in traditional sporting codes,” Mr Falloon said. Six years later, thanks to a continuing partnership with UC Education, the event has become one of New Zealand’s most highly anticipated events for secondary school students. Sport Canterbury Event coordinator Isaac Sutherland said Darfield is one of the events greatest supporters. He said from the beginning of the events, Darfield High School has been on board – 100 per cent. Darfield High School sports coordinator Karen Armstrong said there are many reasons the event has inspired their students. “Our year 11 physical education class has been encouraged to compete as part of their course . . . plus this year, the year 7 and 8 students are getting involved,” she said.

Steve Saville Our People Taking on head role at new school Rolleston College was nothing more than a paddock 12 months ago. Now thanks to the hard work from founding principal Steve Saville and his team, the township now has its first high school, built to cater up to 1500 students. He spoke to Georgia O’Connor-Harding How are you finding your role at Rolleston College? We have been running for 15 weeks. We have got 224 year 9 learners and it has been busy. Today, for example, the students are getting ready for their rocket launching – they have been making rockets. They have been making tape murals to put up on the walls along with video making they were doing yesterday on the environment. They have heaps of ideas including putting in wind turbines. Our sports teams are up and running. We will have football and netball teams travelling into Christchurch. We had Canterbury health educators here for a conference today-the students sang them in. It is very busy.

EXCITING ROLE: Rolleston College founding principal Steve Saville.

Are you trying to get students away from doing your traditional subjects such as math and English? It is about developing them as a person and the attributes they need to function in the changing world. The TVNZ programme

What Next? gives insight into what world they will be going into. We are preparing them for that – we are trying to make sure every learner can stand and succeed as the individual they are. We celebrate individuality and diversity and we try to make

the students accountable by doing things. Being involved in real-life situations. So they have worked with New Zealand Red Cross and Pink Shirt Day. It is important they learn content but it is important what they do with that content.

Was it a big leap for you in your career taking on a new school as a principal? Yes, it is very rare and a privilege. A year and a half ago it was basically a paddock and this stage last year we were thinking about employing people. Now we are a school with 26 teachers and about 35 staff in total. Tell me about your background in education? I have been involved in education for more than 35 years now, my entire adult working life. I have been involved in secondary education in a variety or roles from teacher to head of department to principal roles in a number of schools in the Auckland region. I have had five years working at Auckland University and Waikato University in curriculum development and teacher development and a project called Te Kotahitanga. I was the English adviser for the Auckland region. Why did you move to Canterbury? The challenge and opportunity. Without meaning to be, I have been involved in change and management in education for about 15-20 years by working with new schools.

I like the fact people have come here from all over – it is like they have been blown here by the wind. Any facilities you would like to see put into Rolleston as it grows? They could all be bigger – the pool and library. The sports centre being planned I hope that will be big because that will be huge. All the things being spoken about in the long-term plan like a picture theatre. There are going to be a huge number of teenagers in the community over the next five years and the facilities need to be there for them so they can be actively involved in sport art and culture. It is important we give young people in this community things to do so they don’t have to drive into Christchurch or even to Lincoln. What do you enjoy doing in you spare time? I like drawing – I am not saying I am any good at it. I like reading, and the outdoors. I take

the opportunity of going for walks, and I do enjoy a good cup of coffee. C4 Coffee in Christchurch is definitely my favourite. I like walking around Taylors Mistake, out at Godley Head. We recently did the walks at Mt Cook. In reality you don’t have to go far to come across a spectacular walk – the Bridle Path going over to Lyttelton. What books are you reading? I am reading a science fiction

book by Terry Pratchett. I like biographies, particularly ones of musicians along with fantasy science fiction. I just read a book called And the Walls Came Tumbling Down by Daniel Rachel. Where did you grow up? I came to Auckland when I was five and then we moved to Levin. I drifted back to Auckland for most of my adult years. I studied at Horowhenua College When were you born?

I was born in a small town called Westgate-on-Sea in the north-east of Kent, England. But my family is all from north London. I went back when I did the OE as we all do in our early 20s for a couple of years but I have probably been back at least four times since. It wasn’t a place you wanted to live? I love London, I think it is the most fantastic place but I couldn’t live there. What made you want to go into education in the first place? Initially it was a love of literature and a love of language but then it became enthusiasm for having an affect on young people’s lives. Teenagers are amazing. Do you have any children? I have two adult children. Our son Keegan, 27, is in London working as a civil engineer and Cosette, 24, is an urban planner

at the Auckland Council. They both have busy jobs. Was a big deal for you and your wife Diane to move to Selwyn? The time was right, our kids were adults. We are a tight family but it was time for us to have a bit of adventure as well. They are very excited about it. Was Keegan affected at all by the London fire or the recent terrorist attacks? We actually told him ourselves about the big fire because he was working. He works right around the London Bridge and Borough Market area where the attack happened but he was in Portugal that weekend so we were relieved he was elsewhere. You must worry as a parent? Yes, but you don’t live your life in fear. I was rather he was out living life than not travelling. You have to weigh that up.

Jaz Tuihana Vivian has a label called Losers Are Cool – and her clothing is all gender neutral. You said: Kirsty Tovey – Love this. My daughter Isla stood in a shop once when she was six and asked me why all the girls clothes were pink or purple and covered in butterlies and flowers. She didn’t want to wear any of those. So we headed over to the boys department and she has been wearing boys clothes ever since, she is now almost nine. I love the idea of gender neutral clothes, well done Jaz. Cathryn Lucy – Unfortunately women can’t wear “boys” clothes forever to have the style they like, unless their body shape allows for it. Would be so good to have more styles accessible for women but made for our bodies. Jasmin Raddon – Yes. My girl has been wearing “boys” clothes for years – it is just starting to be a bit stressful now – as she is now 13 and male clothing does not really account for boobs and

hips. Would love to see gender neutral clothing widespread and available everywhere, so shopping can be fun for those who fall outside of gender “norms.” Georgie Southen – Hey. Gender neutral is a simple concept for kidswear, but for adults how do you deal with the aspect of fit? As male and female bodies are different shapes. Jill Reesby – My daughter is a tomboy too, hates the girly stuff and, yes, we buy boys clothing. She is now 11 and luckily is very slim with no curves yet. Even I buy men’s clothing and shoes when I can, unfortunately I come with extreme curves, lol. Cathryn Lucy –  The only difference that there actually needs to be is with the tailoring. Awesome idea. Man Dee Nurse – You are awesome Jaz.

•From page 1 Mr Pearcy told Selwyn Times if someone from outside the Rolleston township supported the cemetery, it could not be classed as an organisation thinking of themselves.  “It is about putting aside for a piece of land so people have somewhere to go,” Mr Pearcy said.  His comments were backed by Rolleston Residents Association committee chairwoman Leonie MacLachlan and Rolleston Community Centre committee chairman Edward Ellens. “I don’t think we need it at the moment but we will in the future,” Mrs MacLachlan said.  Mr Ellens said it was not a bad idea with the way Rolleston was growing.  In the past five years, the district council recorded in its maintained cemeteries there was an increase in the number of deaths from 120 in 2013 to 141 by 2017. The council’s open space and property manager Mark Rykers said  the statistics were not recorded to show deaths in specific areas and people in

Rolleston may choose to use a number of cemeteries. The district council estimated in the last Long Term Plan (2015-25) most  existing cemeteries had a capacity of 50 years or more apart from Prebbleton and Springston cemetery.  “There will likely be a trend to a greater proportion of cremations to burials as the district becomes more

Mr Rykers said while there is no specific land identified for a cemetery, land purchased earlier this year for a large scale park in Rolleston on the corner of Weedons and Levi Rds could be used for this purpose. •HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you think Rolleston needs a new cemetery?

A FLURRY of fundraisers are under way at Lincoln Primary School in the hope of getting its top aerobic teams to this year’s national Jump Jam competition in Auckland. Fundraisers held every Friday morning have ranged from running sausage sizzles to selling hot chocolates and soup. The school needs to fundraise $6000 covering airfares, accommodation and uniforms to get to the competition in October. If all three of the school’s teams are selected 35 pupils and 10 parents will take part.

“Over the last three years Jump Jam has become very popular for all children at Lincoln,” executive officer Sharon Garrett said. But the school is yet to find out if it will qualify for the competition with an announcement not expected to be made

West Melton pupils hunt down clues in environmental challenge A LETTER hunt to celebrate the importance of trees has been held at West Melton School. The school celebrated Arbor Day recently with a “letter hunt” organised by the school’s year 4 to 8 pupils, known as the EcoWarriors The hunt required pupils to work out various clues that led to the location of a team of Eco-Warriors. At each point, the pupils gathered information and a letter about the role of sustainability in the environment. The word that had to be unjumbled from the letter hunt was “sustainable.” Meanwhile, the school’s intermediate pupils won a Canterbury inter-school science and

Waihora tip-up champions „„ By Gordon Findlater WAIHORA HAVE tuned the tides on recent Combined Country champions Southbridge with a 29-24 win just a fortnight after they lost to their rivals. They went down to Southbridge 25-31 in last month’s Combined Country semi-final. Southbridge may have had a case of a championship hangover with Waihora dominating play in the opening 40min to lead 24-7. “We were really impressive to begin the match. They played a few different combinations but I was really happy with how we played,’’ said Waihora coach Joff Moore. The visitors rolled the changes after the break and the momentum turned immediately as Southbridge roared into life to take the game down to the wire. One try to Waihora in the second half was the difference as they hung onto win 29-24. Waihora are well and truly in the play-off race for the Ellesmere title with just one loss to their name through five games. They will hope to record bonus point wins in their next fixtures against West Melton and Rolleston, before hosting local rivals Lincoln. “We have a bye in the final week but that’s not a bad thing after what should be a big game with Lincoln,” said Moore.

SPORTS Win boosts promotion hopes

SELWYN UNITED gave their promotion hopes a boost on Saturday by defeating Christchurch United 4-1 in a top-of-the-table clash. The win at the Christchurch Football Centre was the team’s fifth straight victory and through 11 league games are unbeaten at the top of the Canterbury Champions League. With nine league games remaining Selwyn are on track to win promotion to the Mainland Premier League for the first time in the club’s history. Selwyn United is the result of the merger of Rolleston and Ellesmere football clubs in December 2012. On Saturday, Selwyn host Halswell United at Foster Park. The two teams met at Halswell Domain last month, with Selwyn taking the spoils in a convincing 5-1 victory.

CAMOUFLAGE: The cabbage tree moth is a common endemic species.

HUNGRY: Moth larvae (below) are known for creating distinctive notches and holes when they eat cabbage tree leaves.

MANY OF New Zealand’s native insects feed exclusively on one plant species or genus. For example, the iconic cabbage tree (Cordyline species) has 10 insect species that are reliant on this host for their survival. One common endemic species is the cabbage tree moth (Epiphryne verriculata) which is 10mm long and has a 35mm wingspan. The moth’s parallel vein patterns on its wings provide excellent camouflage when resting on the dead cabbage tree leaves. Eggs are laid in rows on the underside of the cabbage tree leaves and are green at first,

but change to brown then red before hatching approximately 14 days after being laid. The larvae eat the new leaves that are in the heart of the plant and create distinctive notches and holes on the leaves. The larvae, if present, can be seen by separating the smaller overlapping central leaves on the plant. The fine frass (insect poo) is often a sign that larvae is present. The larvae have several natural enemies including parasitic and predatory insects,

and birds such as the starling. Moths are preyed upon by insectivorous birds such as the fantail. Why not plant a cabbage tree

in your backyard and increase the biodiversity? Dead leaves make great fire starters when folded and tied in bundles.

Golf club administrator recognised for hard work „„ By Gordon Findlater MARIE MICHAEL has been recognised for her hard work at the Greendale Golf Club by winning the administrator of the year award at the Canterbury Golf awards. Canterbury Golf highlighted Marie’s passion and tireless work to promote and foster the game at the club, at a ceremony earlier this month. Her job as secretary is an unpaid position which consumes a considerable amount of her time. She has been particularly active and successful in fostering relationships with sponsors who are a key component of the financial viability of the club. A recent initiative she has promoted is a sponsors’ tournament which is now held annually to reward and recognise sponsors at the club. Marie has also been instrumental in promoting and implementing a tree replantment programme to improve the course and the development of a strategic capital expenditure programme. She commits a significant amount of her time in a voluntary role to fill the void of resources required to operate

VOLUNTEER: Marie Michael won the administrator of the year at the Canterbury Golf awards. ​

Narrow defeat for Lincoln „„ By Gordon Findlater LINCOLN Combined suffered the narrowest of defeats to Shirley Boys’ High School 15-17 and now face a tough run into the school holiday break. They travel north to play Waimea Combined in their next UC Championship match this weekend before hosting Christ’s College the following week in their final match before the break. An unconverted try was the only thing to separate Lincoln and Shirley Boys. Lincoln trailed 0-10 at the halftime break, but didn’t take long to fire up in the second half, scoring their first try just 5min in. First-five Josh Davidson broke the Shirley defensive line with some silky footwork just outside the 22m line before putting through halfback Logan Crofts for their opening try. The effort was converted by centre Brett Gillan to narrow the gap to 7-10. Shirley re-established their 10-point lead shortly after with a converted try. With less than 10min to play, Lincoln found themselves camped on the Shirley 5m line. Replacement prop Cameron Jordan looked to be the hero for his side picking up the ball at the ruck and crashing over the line. However, Gillan was unable to convert the try and found themselves trailing 15-17 with just minutes remaining. PROP: Cameron Jackson scored for Lincoln with less than Shirley Boys were able to hold their nerve and see out the tightest of 10min to play to give them a sniff of victory.

Extending our footpath network Proposal: We consulted on providing $347,000 in extra funding to allow footpath extension work to continue at 19 locations in 2017/18. Your comments: online survey and submissions indicated most people supported continuing with our footpath extension work. Our decision: this work will go ahead as planned.

Extending library and service centre opening hours

Annual Plan focuses on

investments for growth The Council adopted our Annual Plan for the next 12 months last week. Consultation on the plan closed in May, with 189 submissions received, while 241 people completed an online survey. We were pleased to get a wide range of people participating in the consultation and sharing their views on our proposals – this provided valuable input into the Council’s deliberations. Through the plan we consulted on a number of proposals designed to improve services for our growing population. Your comments and our decisions on the issues we consulted on through the Annual Plan are summarised below.

Proposal: We consulted on altering library hours during the week to provide later closing times and longer weekend opening hours to provide better access to library services. We also consulted on offering Council service centre functions on Saturdays at Darfield, Leeston and Lincoln Libraries. Your comments: there were mixed views about this proposal with more people indicating they didn’t support this change than those who did. A number of people opposed Sunday opening or made suggestions on alternative opening hours. Our decision: opening hours are being discussed with library staff and will include longer Saturday opening for library services but not Sunday opening. Service centres will also be open on Saturday mornings. Library usage will be reviewed during a six month trial period at each location. The library rate will increase from $180 to $190.

Designing and planning for new pool space Proposal: we consulted on providing $250,000 in our budget for 2017/18 to allow feasibility, design and planning work to be carried out for additional pool space at the Selwyn Aquatic Centre. A separate budget would be required to fund construction of any new facilities. Your comments: online survey comments and submissions showed strong support for this proposal. Our decision: The Council confirmed $250,000 would be included in the Annual Plan to carry out feasibility, design and planning work to add new pool space and additional learn to swim office space to the Aquatic Centre. Further community consultation on the new pool space is planned as part of the Aquatic Facilities Plan review. From this information a proposal on developing new pool space will be included in our Long-Term Plan for 2018-2028 for consultation.

Proposal: we proposed to undertake a feasibility study on establishing a Health Hub to provide space for health professionals, not-for-profit organisations and commercial businesses as an investment which would provide a return over time.

Proposal: we proposed to retain additional funding for road maintenance through the $60 targeted rate, to enable road reconstruction work to continue.

Your comments: Submissions and survey comments indicated strong support for this proposal.

Your comments: 61 submitters commented on this issue, with 53 submissions supporting this funding being continued.

Our decision: We are planning to progress this idea. A project team will now be created, consultation will be undertaken, and concept plans and a financial model will be developed.

Our decision: we will retain the roading rate as proposed.

On the roads this week

A standard rate for stormwater Proposal: we proposed replacing existing township-based stormwater rates (which previously varied from $24 to $278) with a standard rate of $85 for the 2017/18 year. Your comments: online survey and submission comments showed a range of views on this proposal – but more survey participants and submitters supported the change to the new rate than keeping the township-based rates. Our decision: The Council confirmed it would introduce the $85 standard rate for the 1 July 2017 - 30 June 2018 year. This rate will be paid in townships where the Council manages stormwater.

Other changes to the Annual Plan We have included additional funding in the Annual Plan to take advantage of a subsidised funding offer from the NZ Transport Agency which has recently been announced. This will allow older, inefficient street lights to be replaced with new more energy efficient LED lights. NZTA may fund 85% of this cost. $315,000 in Council funding has been allocated to take advantage of this subsidy subject to final NZTA approval for a $2.1 million programme focused in the Ellesmere area. A budget has been included to allow for roading works that may be required to connect Lincoln township to a new school planned by the Ministry of Education. $18,000 has been included for additional road safety initiatives requested by the Selwyn Road Safety Sub-committee.

Rates The average rates increase for the next financial year is 4.5 percent. Rate changes will vary for individual households depending on the mix of rates households pay, changes relating to shifting to a standard stormwater rate and local expenditure on halls and reserves.

A sewer lateral will be laid along Norman Kirk Drive to service the new school buildings at Rolleston School. The works will affect Norman Kirk Drive where stop/go traffic controls will be used and parking will be reduced while works occur. Sewer line installation work is also continuing on Shands and Selwyn Roads - traffic delays may occur due to this work. The widening of Jones Road has been completed north of Lyttleton Port Company. The intersection of Hoskyns and Sandy Knolls Roads will be upgraded and a change of priority will be completed by the end of July. Once these changes are completed, traffic approaching this intersection from Sandy Knolls Road will need to stop. Traffic delays may occur and detours may operate while the intersection is upgraded. Bridge replacement is continuing on Jarvis Road with the road currently closed for this work. Culvert pipe construction is planned on Algidus Road, and unsealed maintenance work is planned on Zig Zag Road with traffic controls operating at both sites.

Christchurch Southern Motorway Extension – NZ Transport Agency The one-way system remains on Waterholes Road from Hamptons Road to 833 Waterholes Road running south towards Robinsons Road with detours in place, and changes to the road alignment to allow for construction of the bridge.

Herbs flourish in winter „„ By Marilyn Wightman Many herbs are underground for winter months. They know how to take a holiday and avoid the cold weather. Winter, though, is when ‘pot herbs’ come into their own. They gained their name centuries ago when the daily food was prepared in probably the only pot in the house (or hovel), which sat over the fireplace.

thyme likes sun and good shelter. ROSEMARY (ROSMARINUS OFFICINALIS) A heat-loving herb, rosemary flourishes in well-drained, sunny positions in the garden. Its Latin name translates as ‘rose of the sea’. Rosemary grows into a healthy large bush in the right conditions. A trim in autumn helps keep it tidy and uniform, as well as compact and less prone to wind damage.

Once spring arrives and the weather warms, chervil leaves quickly turn pink. The plant shoots up into flowering mode, sets seed and dies. Leave the bedraggled plant as long as possible so those elongated, black seeds mature and drop to provide new plants once winter weather arrives the following year. Chervil has a delicate, anise flavour.

Sustainable Farming Fund hits 1000th project Primary Industries Minister Nathan Guy and Associate Minister Louise Upston celebrated the 1000th Sustainable Farming Fund project, and awarded two Emerging Leaders scholarships at an event kicking off National Fieldays. “The Sustainable Farming Fund supports the primary sector’s own forward thinking and Kiwi ingenuity, which in turn helps keeps New Zealand ahead of the game,” Mr Guy said. “One thousand projects have now been funded since the fund was initiated in 2000. This represents around $150 million in government funding alongside a significant level of sector support. “The fund has supported projects as diverse as reducing nutrient runoff on lowland farms, reducing use of antimicrobials when managing mastitis, and increasing the market share for New Zealand olive oil,” Mr Guy said. Ms Upston said much of the success of the fund was due to its grass-roots nature. “Each project brings together farmers, growers and foresters to work alongside scientists and researchers to solve a problem or seize an opportunity. The fund recognises that those closest to the problem or opportunity have a unique insight into

how it could be addressed and how to best influence their peers’ behaviour.” Alongside the announcement was the launch of a commemorative booklet which spotlights 33 projects from across all 17 years of the fund - available on the MPI website. Ministers also announced the announced the winners of this year’s Emerging Primary Industries Leaders Scholarship - Julia Jones a farm enterprise specialist at KPMG, and Jason Te Brake, a key account manager at Miraka. “This scholarship recognises the importance of promoting strong leadership within the primary industries. It encourages those who have shown a commitment to the primary industries and have the potential to help guide the sector in the future,” Mr Guy said. The winners will attend the Te Hono Stanford Bootcamp – a week-long programme held at Stanford University in California, USA. The boot camp is mainly for chief executives or people who hold senior governance roles within the primary sector. Ms Upston said Te Hono Stanford Bootcamp was an opportunity for primary industry leaders to think about and test

various ways to build the sector. “For the scholarship recipients, the boot camp will be a unique chance to build networks with sector leaders and contribute to the future direction of New Zealand’s primary industries,” she says.

The Emerging Primary Industries Leaders Scholarship is now in its second year, and is supported by the Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI), AGMARDT (the Agricultural and Marketing Research and Development Trust) and Te Hono.

Belt and Road Forum for Future Cooperation The Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation (BRF) which was concluded in May 14-15 outlined the roadmap for the success of the Belt and Road Initiative. Twenty-nine foreign heads of state and government attended the forum. Other delegates included officials, entrepreneurs, financiers and media from over 130 countries and regions, which are home to more than two thirds of the world’s population and their combined gross domestic product accounts for 90 percent of the world’s total. The second BRF will be held in China in 2019.

Stronger Financial Connectivity Meanwhile, besides the actual fund injection, future cooperation would gradually extend from the building of hardware such as roads and ports to softer sectors such as management and services. Funding services and financial support would be one of the service and institutional improvements that would take more shares in the next round of Belt and Road construction. Nine Chinese-funded banks have set up 62 direct branches and representative offices in 26 countries along the Belt and Road as of the end of 2016, offering tailored services to local clients. At the same time, 54 commercial banks from 20 countries and regions along the Belt and Road have established branches, financial companies or representative offices in China, seeking opportunities with the initiative. According to the Guiding Principles on Financing the Development of the Belt and Road, governments along the Belt and Road should coordinate to provide favorable policy environments for financing. The guiding principles also suggest letting the private sector play a larger role in the initiative, and encouraging financial innovation while enhancing cooperation on financial regulation.

Consolidated Consensus The forum yielded a list of outcomes, which included 76 consensuses comprising more than 270 detailed results in five key areas, namely policy, infrastructure, trade, financial and people-to-people connectivity. It sent a positive signal for all parties to work together to build a community of shared future, which would be extremely important for China and the world.

Large Investment Demand A joint communiqué was issued at the forum, vowing to work on a long-term, stable and sustainable financing system, as well as to enhance financial infrastructure connectivity, by exploring new finance models, platforms and services. The projects will require innovative financing mechanisms -- a mix of public and concessional finance and commercial capital.

China aims to work with other countries to build the Belt and Road into an open platform of cooperation and a solution for challenges, including a lack of new growth drivers, development imbalance and terrorism. President Xi Jinping said China hoped to create a big family of harmonious co-existence, and the pursuit of the Belt and Road will not resort to outdated geopolitical manoeuvring. To ease concerns, Xi said China has no intention of interfering in internal affairs of other countries, exporting its social system and model of development, or imposing its will on others.

The Belt and Road will be open to all. All countries, from Asia, Europe, Africa, Oceania or the Americas, can be partners of the initiative. So far, the initiative has won support from more than 100 countries and international organizations, of which over 40 have signed cooperation agreements. One of the eye-catching outcomes of the forum was China’s hefty financial support to advance the initiative, including an additional 100 billion yuan (14.5 billion U.S. dollars) to the Silk Road Fund. China will also encourage its financial institutions to conduct overseas yuan fund businesses with an estimated amount of about 300 billion yuan. China’s decision to scale up financial support for the Belt and Road, after billions of U.S. dollars of investment over the past three years, underscored the country’s resolution to push forward the initiative.

Landmark Significance The Belt and Road initiative has gone beyond vision and become a reality, delivering tangible benefits to countries along the routes. From Mongolia to Malaysia, Thailand to Pakistan and Laos to Uzbekistan, many projects, including high-speed railways, bridges, ports, industrial parks, oil pipelines and power grids, are being built. Since 2013, Chinese businesses have invested more than 60 billion U.S. dollars in countries along the Belt and Road. The investment totalled 14.5 billion dollars in 2016 alone, This advertorial page is supported by The Chinese Consulate

accounting for 8.5 percent of total overseas investment made by Chinese enterprises.

The Chinese President in his speech also mentioned China will expand China-Europe railway cargo services and establish new mechanisms, including a liaison office for the forum’s follow-up activities and a research centre. With coordinated and sustained collaboration among all parties concerned, the forum will mark the start of the Belt and Road 2.0.

Opportunities for New Zealand Attending the forum showed that New Zealand wanted to be part of the discussion. New Zealand and China signed a ground-breaking memorandum of understanding on Belt and Road Initiative in March. The longer-term target is to work with China to develop a plan on how New Zealand can participate and contribute to the initiative.

Coming back from the Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation, Paul Goldsmith who is New Zealand’s Minister of Science and Innovation, Minister of Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment, said the forum “was a very impressive and significant event.” As the head of the New Zealand delegation, Goldsmith said during an interview that he sees the Belt and Road Initiative as the re-management, re-invention and re-invigoration of the ancient trade routes. He said “The Silk Road is a starting point and an expression of support for the open market, reducing trade barriers, increasing connectivity across the world. He said that as a small trading nation, New Zealand “obviously has a keen interest on all those things” and New Zealand is well aware of the opportunities that China provide especially for bilateral trade. Being Minister of Science and Innovation, Mr. Goldsmith is particularly interested in the themes of the Belt and Road Initiative on innovation, which is the particular field that New Zealand is focused on. New Zealand is also looking into how the two countries can continue to work together on innovation in many fields. New Zealand universities have long time relationships with Chinese leading universities. Mr. Goldsmith said that there’s a good prospect for New Zealand and China to further develop science connections under the Belt and Road Initiative.

HOME PROFESSIONALS

Heating the home over winter With the colder days, we are turning on the heating. The best way to heat a home depends on its age and construction. As up to a third of household energy goes on heating, insulating an older home is a starting point. All homes require heating on dull cold days however, insulated double glazed homes hold heat in for longer and those built to the sun capitalise on free energy. Aim for a healthy comfortable temperature with no chill in the air, avoiding over-heating that leads to the need to peel off clothes, and unnecessary electricity expenditure. Electricity, gas, solar, pellet and log fires are all potential heating sources. A log fire is economical if there is a supply of affordable

dry wood while heat pumps are the most cost effective while gas fires add ambience. Unflued gas heaters are the most expensive. Underfloor heating feels great. It is more efficient if people spend time at home though it will translate to larger power bills. As it takes time to heat up, it is usually left on which can make the house uncomfortably hot on a sunny day. Centrally heating can also be effective. Pipes or ducts might be used to feed warm air throughout the home or from a log burner. Ceiling fans are also good for circulating warm air within a room. Central or water solar heating utilises the sun’s free energy with the latter more cost effective, however, with new storage batteries coming onto the market, solar

power may be a real alternative soon. Portable heaters also have their place, quickly heating a room or eliminating the chill in a bedroom. Fan heaters warm the air but are less effective than column or radiant heaters that warm objects holding heat in a room for longer. Using heaters with a timer also allows temperature control avoiding wasting power and meaning they are safer with children.

Central heating or ceiling mounted heat pumps can circulate warm air around the home.

Log fires are economical where a supply of affordable dry wood.

Gas fires add ambience. Heat pumps are the most cost effective form of heating.

Showroom’s new look will inspire Home furnishings displays offer ideas and help us decide which fabrics and accessories are right for us. Maxine, Lorna and Sylvia realise this and have been busy creating a display showroom at the front of Classic Curtains and Interiors. “It’s a work in progress with exciting things happening,” explains Maxine. The shop still has a workroom at the rear while the layout at the front of the store, is gradually being changed into a bright new showroom that will feature fabulous fabrics, cushions and upholstered furniture to inspire interior design. A Mood Board is also planned, which will be updated seasonally. People will also be able to see the displays through the windows, after hours. “We’ve still a little to do however, most of our new showroom is already in place,” advises Maxine who says that soon to be erected new signage, will give the store more street presence. Classic Curtains and Interior’s new showroom layout will also showcase the wide range of services they offer including making and supply of curtains and blinds, selling a large selection of cushions as well as offering an upholstery service. You will also want to check out the large assortment of short and long stock rolls of curtain fabrics and linings in-store. These are selling for $50 a roll.

The ideal time to install irrigation

With minimal lawn growth and moisture in the air, garden watering is over until spring when shifting the hose becomes a necessary chore unless an irrigation system is in place. Winter is an ideal time to install an irrigation system. The ground is softer so a better job can be done with less damage to the lawn. Spring growth will hide any marks on the lawn created when the pipes were installed and the system will be ready to use when the hotter drier months come along.

Freeman Irrigation specialise in installing and maintaining irrigation systems. They use top quality Toro and Hunter commercial grade components, pipes and fittings. These meet industry standards, are more reliable and have a longer life. Freeman Irrigation install garden drip lines with built-in timers and pop-up irrigation systems, fitted before laying a lawn or into existing lawns using a Mole plough. This cuts a fine channel in the grass, pulling the hose through in a no-mess operation that does not rip the grass up. They can fit separate control stations and timers for the garden and lawn, allowing irrigation to be turned off for part of the garden; an ideal option when there is a lawn watering ban on. Now is also a good time for irrigation system maintenance and servicing so grass or soil that is blocking a jet is removed, leaks or problems such as water pooling are sorted and the system is functioning correctly so it comes on when, and for as long as required. “Irrigation systems should be checked annually to ensure they operate efficiently and as they’re meant to,” explains Phil Hudson, owner of Freeman Irrigation. His team can service your existing irrigation system, repairing any problems, many of which take just one or two hours to fix.

The Mole plough cuts a fine channel in the grass.

Freeman Irrigation uses top grade components.

Freeman Irrigation offers special rates for the installation of an irrigation system over winter. Just call Phil on 0800 223 392, 347 4083 or 021 735 706; email: info@freemanirrigation.co.nz, or visit www.freemanirrigation.co.nz.

and growing mixes. What better time to increase the nutrition in the soil or spread ground cover than over winter. A richer protected soil ensures plant growth over spring and summer. Composts and mulches hold moisture in, reducing the watering required and suppressing weeds so less time is needed for gardening. The professionals at Intelligro are always happy to provide advice on any landscaping or gardening tasks you have planned. You can also join their VIP club on-line at www. igro.co.nz or in-store, to receive regular newsletters on gardening, landscaping, available products and monthly specials.

New access for Intelligro

Building of the Southern Motorway extension has disrupted businesses fronting Main South Road between Rolleston and Templeton, with many like Intelligro no longer being accessible from the highway. Intelligro has a new entrance on the new Manion Road. This road runs parallel to the railway line, and Jones Road. Currently, road works are blocking access to Manion Road from Weedons Ross Road with the only entry point from Curraghs Road. While these changes are out of their control, Intelligro wish to extend their apologies for the disruption, and thank you for your patience during this time. Intelligro carry an extensive range of landscaping supplies, from soil through to barks and mulches on the top. Fertilisers, tools and decorative stones are part of the range, as well as their superb quality potting

Many activities have been planned for the 7 day trip. Some of the learning objectives our students will undertake will be: 1. To research and understand the history of the migration of Maori through the Cook Islands. 2. To look at the similarities/differences of the Cook Island language and Maori language. 3. To interactive and learn the Cook Island culture with Tereora College.

On the 5th – 12th July 2017, a group of 12 students, 2 staff and a parent helper will travel to Rarotonga to embark on a journey of a lifetime tracing the footsteps of our Tipuna, to see where their journey began and to get a better understanding of where our tipuna came from plus the customs and protocols they learnt before they arrived in Aotearoa.

GLOBAL LEADERS IN FIRST AID TRAINING Christchurch Course Dates 2017 Venue: 32 Birmingham Drive, Middleton

Ensuring a safe work place Learning first aid is not only a part of ensuring a safe work place, but also an integral part of our engagement with the wider community. We all learn the necessary skills to ensure that in times of emergency we are able to assist our work colleagues, but are we able to take these skills home, into the community or on to the sports field? not all work places are the same and the injury risk for each place can be wide and variable. The office attended by administrators does not carry the same risk as those people working with heavy machinery, or perhaps at some distance from a regular ambulance service. it is therefore essential that you pick the right first aid course to suit all of your activities – both professional and social. take, for example, an office worker who does not have a high risk work environment and whose concern might be to ensure that they can deal with minor cuts and superficial injuries, or the ability to perform effective CPr. These skills can be achieved on a course of eight hours duration and would generally fit into low to medium risk area. But take this same person on to a sports field either as a spectator or player when a higher level injury occurs. The eight hour course covering unit standards 6402 and 6401 (or 26551 and 26552) does not cover head neck and spinal injuries, eye injuries,

hypothermia and poisonings. The majority of injuries occur outside of the work place, in fact one in three injuries occurs in the home, making it the most common place for injuries to happen. new Zealand children are twice as likely to die through injury as children who live in australia. They mostly die as a result of motor vehicles accidents or falls in the home. fatalities from leisure and sport are not far behind those in the workplace. The wider 12 hour course teaches the additional unit standard 6400 and provides a wide knowledge base for medium to high risk environments. This course covers many of the skills required to deal with the most common injuries, such as falls (which can result in head, neck and spinal injuries) and dealing with complex scenes such as motor vehicle accidents. if you are not sure on the course best suited to your needs, ask your accredited first aid training provider. They can explain the course content and give you options that will best suit your needs. Look beyond the workplace and consider your family and your location. Check that you have a good quality first aid kit that is up-to-date with replenished items, and that everyone knows where it is located.

Buying a property? Get a building inspection Would you get a mechanic to inspect a used car before you bought it, or would you just get a mate who knows a bit about cars to take a look? Prospective property buyers face a similar conundrum – do they pay for a building inspection before making an offer, or just ask a builder friend to check the place out? Buying a car is worrisome enough, but the emotional and financial stakes are a lot higher when it comes to buying property. If you’re going to make a serious investment in something that will have a huge impact on your family’s health, wealth and wellbeing, it pays to get the best advice you can. Ideally, this means engaging a building inspector who can identify significant defects, future or urgent maintenance issues and problems caused by gradual deterioration. They will look for structural problems, any evidence that the property is a leaky building, issues caused by deferred maintenance (such as weatherboards rotting due to peeling paint) and areas where there is damp or mould. This is a visual inspection – a building surveyor will check in the ceiling and under the floor, but they will not cut holes in walls or carry out any other invasive testing. The whole

property should be checked, including fences and any garages or sheds. They will collate their findings in a detailed and easily understood report. Getting a good property inspection carried out isn’t cheap though, particularly if you’re unsuccessful in buying and have to repeat the process. You have a range of choices, from enlisting a builder mate to using a qualified and insured inspector. You can also make an inspection a condition of your offer on a property. If you choose this option, the report must be prepared by a suitably qualified building inspector in accordance with accepted principles and methods. If you then use the report’s findings to get out of the contract, you must provide the seller with a copy of it. Either way, the more you invest in this exercise the safer you will be if things don’t turn out as you had expected. The property pre-purchase inspection industry is not regulated in New Zealand, however the Real Estate Agents Authority (REAA) recommends using a qualified building inspector who has professional indemnity insurance, understands the strict legal requirements of their role and carries out their work in accordance with

the New Zealand Property Inspection Standard. This is important because they will help protect you if something goes wrong later on. If you discover problems with the property that should have been evident in a building inspection, you can make a complaint to the professional body that the inspector belongs to and seek compensation through the courts. If you buy a property based on a report by someone like a builder mate who is unqualified and/or uninsured, you could end up owning some expensive problems. Even worse, you may severely limit your ability to seek damages if the property has significant issues that would have been picked up by a more thorough inspection. You have limited other avenues if things don’t turn out to be how they were represented to you. You may be able to rely on the warranties included in the sale and purchase agreement by the seller. They are required to confirm that (among other things) any work they have done on the property was carried out in accordance with any necessary permits or consents required by law. You may also have other legal options which you should speak to your lawyer about. REAA strongly recommends that you speak to a lawyer before you sign the sale and purchase agreement to understand this more. If you are looking to buy it’s a good

idea to get in touch with a local building inspector as soon as you start your property search. Ask friends and family for their recommendations and request a sample report from any inspector you contact to get an idea of the kind of information they provide. Real estate agents can sometimes offer building inspection reports to prospective buyers on behalf of vendors. Treat these as a starting point rather than a definitive diagnostic guide to a property. Paying for your own report means you know the credentials of the person who prepared it, you can be sure of its impartiality and you can seek redress if needed. Depending on what a building inspection finds, you may be able to use a report to help you negotiate with the vendor over price or repairs. Even if a report only finds minor issues, you can still use it as a road map for future maintenance. Knowing what you’re in for is invaluable when you’re buying property, no matter how many times you’ve done it before. The New Zealand Institute of Building Surveyors and the Building Officials Institute of New Zealand both hold lists of qualified property inspectors.

Your guide to Show Homes & New Sections in the Selwyn District

Elegant, stylish and spacious Homes by Parklane recently opened their new showhome in Lincoln. Aptly named after the subdivision in which it is located, the Flemington is a perfect design for maximising sun on a north facing section. This 247 square metre home is ideal for families or those wanting more spacious surroundings for everyday living and entertaining. Its formal entrance flows into a large, elegant open plan living/dining area that is enhanced with timber flooring, pitched ceiling and generous lighting. Two separate courtyards offer a place to escape outdoors no matter what the wind direction. These are accessed through large stacker sliders on both sides of the h-shaped design, capturing natural light within the home and guaranteeing a beautifully warm house while also offering views of the surrounding countryside. The hub of the home is stylish. There is a modern yet practical kitchen, equipped with two ovens, gas hob, push-to-open cupboards and walk-in pantry for plenty of storage, Subway tiled splashback, black gooseneck tap, and stone top bench with waterfall ends that adds further refinement. A separate sitting room runs off the living room providing a place for conversation while the double-sided, see-through gas fire adds warmth and intimacy in both living spaces. Full height doors throughout the home create openness while a duel controlled

ducted heat pump warms and cools (according to the season) throughout the living and four generous sized bedrooms. Morning sun streams into the master bedroom for a beautifully warm room during the day and a generous walk-in robe offers plenty of room for his and hers. The stunning ensuite includes a double tiled shower and soaker for pure luxury and comfort. The second bedroom is also a larger room which includes a walk-in robe and ensuite affording comfort to guests who can relax in their own private wing. Both ensuites and main bathroom have under-floor heating and heated towel rails along with modern vanity units. The main bathroom also has a free standing quality bath with a Stopsol glass window so you can relax and enjoy a soak while watching the night go by, assured of complete privacy. A large laundry and storage cupboards are cleverly tucked into the double garage, an area that is carpeted so could double as a games room for the children. Black tray roofing offsets white plaster for a lovely first impression in this modern home while the lush green lawn, easy care garden and metal panel fencing, not only look smart but are also low maintenance, especially with a watering system on timer. Homes by Parklane’s new showhome is located at 6 Craig Thompson Drive, Flemington in Lincoln; open Wednesday to Sunday, 12pm to 4pm.

REAA - Disclosure rules when selling a home Real estate advertisements are designed to make every property look like a dream buy. That’s why they gloss over the negative aspects and linger on the good points, wanting you to be drawn in by the sundrenched location rather than be put off by lack of garaging. It’s no crime to gloss over a property’s quirks, but lying by omission or design about more serious matters is not allowed. If you do this when selling your property you may be at risk of being sued by the purchaser. When you’re ready to sell your property it’s a good idea to get legal advice about your obligations before you sign an agency agreement. Most of these agreements, which set out the terms and conditions of your contract with the real estate agent, require you to confirm that you are unaware of any undisclosed defects in the property and that you haven’t withheld any information about it. As a seller, you must also confirm that your property has all the necessary consents and code compliance certificates for any building work. Any outstanding consents, including ones that involve any works at a neighbour’s property, should be disclosed to the agent. This is important for several reasons. Licensed real estate agents have clear obligations when it comes to disclosure. They must not mislead a seller or a potential buyer, or withhold any information. While it’s not up to the agent to uncover any hidden defects in a property, they must tell any prospective buyers what they know. Under the Real Estate Agents Act 2008, if licensed real estate agents suspect that a property may have a defect then they are obliged to ask the seller about it, or advise potential buyers of any risks. For example, if a property is next door to a proposed new development, or if it’s in an area that’s been subject to flooding, the agent must tell prospective buyers rather than turning a blind eye. If your property may be prone to weathertightness issues thanks to its age or cladding, then the agent may have to disclose this potential risk to prospective buyers. If it doesn’t have any weathertightness problems it may be worth getting this confirmed in

an expert report by a qualified building inspector who has professional indemnity insurance, understands the strict legal requirements of their role and carries out their work in accordance with the New Zealand Property Inspection Standard. This will help make the sale process as efficient as possible.

If you know there are issues with the property, whether it’s something small like a garage door not working properly, or a bigger deal like an unconsented deck, it’s best to discuss them with the agent you are working with. They can help you decide how to manage the problem, whether that means fixing it, or disclosing it to potential buyers. However, a licensed real estate agent must not disclose any problems with your property to buyers without getting your consent first. If a seller doesn’t agree on a disclosure, the agent is required to stop working for them rather than disclose any defects without consent. These rules offer more protection to buyers than the traditional attitude of ‘caveat emptor’ (buyer beware), which assumed that the seller would always know more than the buyer and any sale was at the buyer’s risk. However, buyers should always do their own research about a property before signing a sale and purchase agreement. Buyers should also ask the agent about anything they are concerned about, no matter how trivial it may seem. It’s far better to get an answer upfront than find out when it’s too late.
