Injury fears at Diamond Harbour ferry wharf

Big plans for sleepy Church Bay „„ By Bridget Rutherford A PUBLIC meeting will be held next week to discuss concerns over a plan to build a commercial development in sleepy Church Bay (above). Spence Developments is proposing to build a supermarket, four shops, a coffee shop, and a 30-seat cinema on the 8311m2 of land at 139-143 Marine Drive, behind the On The Spot store. Plans show there would also

be 111 car parks, which could October 17, at 7.45pm. be accessed from Marine Developer Doug Drive and Patiki Pl. Spence, planning conThe developers are also sultant James Hook and considering reopening a architect Dean Grant petrol station on the site. will speak about the proposal. The resource consent application is expected Diamond Harbour to be lodged with the city Community Association council next month. chairman Richard SugRichard gate said neighbouring The meeting will be Suggate properties had received held at Diamond Harbour pamphlets about the plan last Community Hall on Tuesday,

week, which caused a “stir”. “This is sleepy little Diamond Harbour.” Mr Suggate said people would welcome more shops if they could get the business, but the population was growing slowly. “People come to Diamond Harbour because they’re looking for something different from town,” he said. •Turn to page 3

„„ By Bridget Rutherford FEARS PASSENGERS will injure themselves while getting on and off the ferry at Diamond Harbour Wharf has prompted staff to look into what improvements can be made. Black Cat Cruises told the Banks Peninsula Community Board about the difficulty of passengers boarding and Paul disembarking the Milligan ferry from the Diamond Harbour side. Chief executive Paul Milligan said there was no ramp leading onto the ferry, so the passengers had to climb down steps. There was a risk of passengers falling between the wharf and ferry into the water, he said. “We’ve just identified with the number of people we’re carrying across there, getting on and off the boat at the Diamond Harbour side is not quite as easy as we would have liked.” •Turn to page 7

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK SLEEPY CHURCH Bay may not be so sleepy anymore. We reveal today (see page 1) plans to build a commercial development there which would include a supermarket, four shops, a coffee shop, and a 30-seat cinema behind the On the Spot store. There would also be 111 car parks. And needless to say the plans are causing a stir. If you read the feedback (see page 10) to our article last week over an idea to turn the failed Maori Village site at Ferrymead into a dog park, then it’s a nobrainer. The verdict is unanimous – dogs should be let loose on the site. Readers also have given the thumbs up to the re-opening of the Redcliffs Dairy. It’s all about the ice creams and of course Minod Vinod’s great service. – Barry Clarke

News Ferry parking fight continues „„ By Emily O’Connell MORE OPTIONS will be looked into before bus parking is decreased at the Diamond Harbour Ferry terminal in Lyttelton. It follows a decision by the Lyttelton Port Company to reduce bus parking spaces from three to one and not provide a pick-up/drop-off zone. An urgent meeting was held by the Banks Peninsula Community Board with the LPC, Environment Canterbury and the city council on Monday. It was decided at the meeting that the LPC and ECan would look into more options and come back to the board in a few weeks’ time. Diamond HarPeter Davie bour Residents’ Association chairman Richard Suggate said the further investigation is good but he’s not pessimistic nor optimistic about the final outcome. He said the LPC should put the public interest above their own. Community board member Jed O’Donoghue said he’s pleased other resolutions will be considered but ultimately the

board don’t have the final say. “At the end of the day we can only influence them because its their land,” he said. An online petition calling for better public access to the Diamond Harbour ferry terminal has attracted more than 230 signatures in two weeks. Set up by the Diamond Harbour Residents Association, the petition calls on the city council and Environment Canterbury to “ensure that within 100m of the Diamond Harbour ferry

terminal, there is adequate bus parking on the Lyttelton wharf and that there is a drop-off/pickup zone for private vehicles.” Mr Suggate told a board meeting two weeks ago that the LPC’s refusal to provide a drop-off zone would force the infirm, disabled or with heavy parcels, to walk from Norwich Quay. Port company chief executive Peter Davie said LPC staff met with the Banks Peninsula Community Board on July 31. Mr Davie previously said the

they are working with ECan to ensure it has minimum impact on current services and it will not affect ferry users at all. He said an upgrade of the existing Diamond Harbour Ferry facilities will take place at the same time as the LPC staff car park is being built adjacent to Waterfront House and the work should be completed before Christmas. “We will work with Black Cat Cruises to enable people to have access. If there are particular items that require to be around 50m closer to the ferry terminal than they can achieve via the stairs, then we will accommodate them through the port,’’ Mr Davie said. Black Cat Cruises chief executive Paul Milligan said they had been involved with discussions about the issue with LPC and ECan. “An ideal site is to move us down to the west end with the new marina, which will be new and there will be room for buses to move around. But we’re not going to get that in the near future so we just need to make the best of the facilities we currently have.” He said that was part of LPC’s long term plan, but would take time to come into fruition.

PROPOSAL: The area where a new complex may be built.

Big plans for Church Bay •From page 1 “Seeing something that kind of looks like a downtown shopping mall is a bit of a shock and not really what people appreciate.” Plans for the development show, once completed, it is intended the operators of the On The Spot store would become proprietors of the supermarket. Landscaping would include red beech, pohutukawa and cabbage trees. Timber fences would be built along the boundaries to reduce sound for next door neighbours.

News Team NZ shirt up for grabs

History on show in garden tour

„„ By Sophie Cornish

„„ By Sarla Donovan THE GOVERNORS Bay House and Garden Show is back for the first time in 11 years. Homes and gardens large and small make up the 13 on show, including several which have undergone major post-earthquake repairs. The self-guided tour includes recently restored St Cuthbert’s Church – built between 196062, it is one of the oldest stone churches in the country. It was designed by George Mallinson, who was also the architect of the Holy Trinity Church in Lyttelton. Waitahuna, the original Dyer homestead in Governors Bay is also part of the tour, along with one of New Zealand’s finest formal gardens, the internationally significant Ohinetahi owned by Sir Miles Warren. Ohinetahi Homestead was built in 1864 and has been restored after suffering serious damage in the September 4, 2010, earthquake. One of the PTA organising committee members, Felicity Robertson, said it was very generous of the owners to include it in the tour as it is normally $15 to visit.

AN ORIGINAL Team New Zealand shirt from the historic 1995 America’s Cup win is up for auction to raise money for the rebuild of Pleasant Point Yacht Club. It is one of 1000 limited edition shirts with a certificate of authenticity signed by Sir Peter Blake and Sir Russell Coutts who headed the 1995 campaign. The auction is one of many items on the website GalaBid, raising money for the rebuild of Pleasant Point Yacht Club’s clubrooms in South New Brighton Park. The club lost all its facilities in the earthquakes. The auction is now under way until noon on Saturday. Team New Zealand will be hosted by the yacht club at an event on Saturday, where the auctioning of GalaBid items will continue. Other items up for grabs include several seats on a helicopter ride piloted by Richie McCaw to a mystery location, a horse power experience in a dual sulky behind Monkey King, New Zealand’s top harness racer, and a hot laps session at Mike Pero Motorsport Park in a V8 Supercar driven by Greg Murphy.

SIGNIFICANT: Internationally renowned Ohinetahi Gardens is part of the Governors Bay House and Garden Tour. Inset: The historic St Cuthbert’s Church.

“There are many other private homes and gardens that will surprise and delight,” said Ms Robertson. “It’s a fabulous day in Governors Bay. Visitors can meander through gorgeous gardens, discover the hidden secrets behind the trees off the main road and be awed by the ever changing views.”

The price of the tour will help to develop the Governors Bay School playground. Next year, the school buildings are undergoing substantial renovations and the PTA is keen to develop the playground with an orchard area, landscaping and new play equipment. “This is an educational, recreational and social hub of the

Governors Bay community benefiting our students, the wider community and visitors to the area,” Ms Robertson said. The PTA is hoping to sell 500 tickets to the November 26 event. The cost is $40 if purchased by October 15. •For tickets and more information, visit www. governorsbay.school.nz

Diamond Harbour ferry wharf injury fears October 14-15 •From page 1 Mr Milligan said they carried about 2000 passengers a week. He said they wanted a floating pontoon, like on the Lyttelton side, but he understood it wasn’t a quick fix. “We just wanted to start the conversations around it.” The board asked city council staff to look into whether any maintenance could improve safety and access. City council neighbourhood

and sports parks operations manager Al Hardy said Black Cat had raised accessibility concerns about the wharf. “Council will respond to any concerns about safety as they arise.” Mr Hardy said there was $4.24 million budgeted in the long term plan to replace the wharf. But that was spread between 2022-2025. “If funds where bought forward in the long term plan, to replace the wharf, it

is highly likely other projects would need to be pushed out; this is a decision for council to make during the LTP process.” He said any redesign would include maximising safety and ease of use. The city council had also received a complaint recently about the slipperiness of the dinghy ramp on the wharf, which was inspected and cleaned, Mr Hardy said. Mr Milligan said their ideal

situation was for the wharf’s replacement to be brought forward. Diamond Harbour Community Association chairman Richard Suggate said some people who were elderly, had young children or were disabled, chose not to take the ferry because of the access issues. He welcomed the city council looking into the issue. “It’s an important lifeline for the community.”

Your Local Views Readers respond to the article regarding a lobby effort to get a dog park for Ferrymead Cherry Daly – Regarding the proposed dedicated dog park at Ferrymead. I agree that the eastern suburbs are in dire need of a dedicated dog park. This site is central to the region and would be absolutely perfect. Many thanks to city councillor Yani Johanson for making this proposal and hoping that the notoriously anti-dog city council will see their way clear to approving this as soon as possible.

Gayel Marquet – That sounds like a fabulous idea but the reason dogs love the beach is that owners do too. Give the owners a major unique reason and features (a pond to splash in) to attract them to Ferrymead and then educate them to be off the beach and I’m all for it – and I don’t even have a dog. Also re the article next to this about skateboarding . . . here we go again, one nimby (not in my backyard) spoiling it for all – give Sumner kids a place to go. Paula Mayer and her dog Frankie – I wish to support a dog park at Ferrymead – to have an alternative to the beach. Jo Wilson – I was so happy to read the article regarding a proposal to turn the old Maori Village site at Ferrymead into a dog park. I have lived in Mt Pleasant for a number of years and have often thought that the site would be perfect for a dog park. I walk my dog around there on a regular basis and would definitely use it even more if it were made more dog friendly. The eastern and hill suburbs including Lyttelton are woefully lacking when it comes to designated dog parks and I

Mechelle Wilson – Yah. Best ice-creams ever. We called in but saw you were closed. Good excuse for another visit soon. Brydie Wolfe – The best place ever not to mention the best people who work there. PLAN: A report on whether the former Tamaki Maori Village site in Ferrymead could be turned into a dog park is expected to return before Christmas. ​

have no doubt the Ferrymead site would be utilised by many of us dog owners on this side of town. Let’s hope the city council will make it a reality.

Sarah Joseph – I think a dog park in Ferrymead is an excellent idea.   I’ve been looking for safe places to let our dog have a run off the lead. 

Belinda Rooney – Yes, we support this.

Nick Stoneman – No to a dog park got lots of them already.

Anthea Wilson – Yes, I would definitely use it – in fact I already use it on occasion. Once it is fully fenced and some of the potholes filled it will be brilliant. About a year and half ago I emailed the city council suggesting it but never heard back. So it is a yes from me. Ann Newsom – I think its great idea to have a dog park at Ferrymead on the old Maori village site. It would be an alternative to the beach which if full of dogs at summer week ends. Jill Reesby – Excellent idea. Sounds like all of the buildings have already been removed and it is now bare land, so this would be an excellent idea as more and more restrictions on free running of dogs is implemented. Jeffrey Gibson – It already is a dog park on most weekends.

Karen Beaumont – If is not going to be used again, leave the buildings there and turn it into a paintball adventure. At least you can still make money off it. Plenty of dog parks already, it’s called the red zone.

idea but plant the boundary with edible fruit trees so it has more than one purpose. Margaret Nicholas – Great. We need lots more dog parks. They bring people together and are great for socialising. Make it like the Styx Park. Hazel Cain – About time our animals had a great park with plenty of different smells to find. Lisa Peters – How fantastic our dogs love it there. Nice and safe. Great place on a warm day.

Jenny Sutherland – Yay, my very favourite ice cream shop. I was gutted when we found it closed a few weeks back. Tracey Butcher – Best ice creams and he has my favourite flavour, which most places don’t have. Sue Qunlivan – Such a hard working family, they were one of the first to open to help the community after the 2011 quakes and yes – fab ice cream.

Jenny Bradley – Can’t help thinking this will attract people who may not like seeing my dog walking around with a dead rabbit in his jaws. Pamela Dixon – I reckon we have plenty of areas for our dogs to play, how about a theme park? Way more exciting. Tess Lenihan – Best idea ever. A lot of dog walkers go here already.

“We’ve never been so social.” Joy and Bill have been at Summerset for just over three years and held their golden wedding anniversary celebration at their retirement village last year.

“OUR KIDS SAY THEY NEED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO SEE US!”

Lindsey Nicole Burton – So good to have the dairy back, I told him so when I went in too.

Their spacious villa is often filled with family when they’re not flat out enjoying village activities with friends, including the very popular Wine Appreciation Group. They’re loving the life, and as Bill says, “The added advantage is that you have a support crew if something goes wrong, and that to me is reassuring.”

Boat safety week a timely reminder Lyttelton-based navigational safety officer Gary Manch writes about Safer Boating Week which starts on Friday AS I am writing, I can see the odd pleasure boat out in the harbour making the most of the lovely day. It’s great to see people out there using our amazing coast for recreation. With Labour weekend not far away, the start of the boating season is here, and hopefully the weather will be kinder to us this season than last. To coincide with the start of the season, Maritime New Zealand is running its nationwide Safer Boating Week from Friday to October 20. I want to highlight the week for two reasons.

First, it’s a timely reminder to get you thinking about your preparation for the upcoming boating season. That means making sure your vessel has been serviced, making sure all the safety equipment is still in good working order, and making sure you have two forms of communication ready to take out on the water. It also means checking that lifejackets are the right size and, in the case of inflatable ones, checking the cylinders are working and manually blowing the lifejacket up, and leaving it overnight to check there are no leaks. Second, it’s a good time to make sure you know the boating rules for where you are going to be. In Canterbury, for example, you must have an identifying

name or number on both sides of your boat. Check out our Navigation Safety Bylaw 2016 (item 20) for full details on identification. It’s available at

ecan.govt.nz/harbourmastersoffice/recreational-boating or contact us if you’re unsure.   That’s it from me this week. Remember that if you have any

questions or queries, I am always available to help at gary.manch@ ecan.govt.nz. Be safe out there and respect each other on the water.

Korako’s environmental focus

Thanks for voting

National MP Nuk Korako writes about his plans now that he has been returned to Parliament

Labour MP Ruth Dyson is humbled to have been re-elected to represent the Port Hills electorate

WITH THE final election results now announced and my place back in Parliament as the National List MP based in the Port Hills confirmed, it’s time to look ahead to my priorities for the next three years. I will continue to maintain an office here in the Port Hills and be available to assist with constituent cases and concerns. But there are also some specific issues where I think I can make a difference in the Port Hills, particularly within the environmental area. In my last column, I talked about the set up of Te Tapuwae o Rakau Trust, which is now working on developing a structured approach to replanting the Port Hills. I believe leading the set up of this trust is one of the most important contributions I

UNSIGHTLY: About 720 volunteers, including Environment Canterbury councillor Cynthia Roberts, helped with the annual Mother of All Clean Ups this year.

have been able to make to our electorate, and I look forward to seeing the work the trust does and assisting where I can. Another area of real environmental importance here in the Port Hills electorate is the Heathcote River and Ihutai Estuary. This is something I was involved with even before becoming an MP, in my role as chairman of Te Ihutai Trust. One of the greatest community initiatives we have in our electorate is the annual Mother of All Clean Ups, and I’ve always enjoyed getting in and helping to clean up the

rubbish which pollutes the waterway and its banks. It’s a privilege to live in close proximity to such a beautiful landmark as the Heathcote River. But winding through residential areas carries risks for water quality. There are many issues around silt, chemicals and run-off from metal building products ending up in the river. These are issues that will require ongoing attention from local authorities and from central Government. I am committed to using my position to leave a better and cleaner environment here in the Port Hills.

I SPOKE to a Mt Pleasant woman who is in her 90s during the week. “This has been the most exciting election since I was a young girl,” she said. And it certainly has been exciting. The final make-up of the Government won’t be known for a little while but we can be satisfied the MMP system will deliver us a Government of our choosing, given that the party vote determines how many MPs each party ends up having. I have been re-elected to represent the constituents of Port Hills in Parliament and I feel humbled at the support I received and want to express my thanks to each and every one of you – not just those that supported my re-election, but

everyone who participated in our democratic process. Some countries don’t have the right for citizens to vote and we really should appreciate it more than many do. We should make it as easy as possible for people to vote and I do hope that the technology develops soon so that people will have confidence in online voting. The advance voting was certainly popular this year and is a step in the right direction of making voting more accessible. There are many issues that need support and attention in our electorate and I give you my commitment that I will continue to work hard for you, listen to what locals are saying and get things done for the benefit of our communities. We can face our challenges together and get through difficult times as we have shown in the past. But we’re not there yet. There is still much to do before we can truly say that we are on the road to recovery. But we know we can do it together.

Ferrymead Rotary grants behind community projects Ferrymead Rotary Club member Barbara Crooks writes about neighbourhood inititives which the club supports ONE OF the few positive outcomes of the February 22, 2011, earthquake, was the reinforcement of the value of neighbours. Several major donors gave funds to Rotary to help neighbourhoods come together and to support local community projects. Further donations have allowed Rotary’s neighbourhood committee to continue to support community activities and projects at a local level. These grants are channelled through local Rotary clubs. Ferrymead Rotary has been involved in a dozen or so of these. The club has two on the go right now – the Mt Pleasant Response and Resilience team and the South Brighton Residents’ Association. Robin Arnold, who coordinates Mt Pleasant Response and Resilience, says the grant will be used primarily to assemble community emergency supplies, which will be kept at Mt Pleasant School.

IMPROVED: Rotary grants were used to fund native planting on Rocking Horse Rd.

She has a group of local volunteers working to set up a core community response group with relevant knowledge, or access to it. This also involves developing a basic emergency plan and broadening the role of neighbourhood support groups beyond crime watch to include emergency procedures. In South Brighton, the residents’ association is using its grant for planting on Rocking Horse Rd. It’s a two-year project to plant natives in beds on street corners down both sides of the road and along the

First Crater Rim Ultra a unique marathon „„ By Gordon Findlater SOME OF the country’s top long distance and trail runners will tackle a picturesque yet unforgiving 50km course from Diamond Harbour to Hansen Park on Sunday. The inaugural Crater Rim Ultra will be a unique event. It will be one of the few ultramarathons in the world were the athletes are taken to the start line not only by bus but also by boat – cruising from Lyttelton to Diamond Harbour. The Crater Rim Ultra will see competitors start at the Diamond Harbour rugby grounds at 7.15am and head to the summit of Mt Herbert, 919m above sea level. They will then continue on a track to the top of Gebbies Pass and along the summit through to the top of Briddle Path. They will then loop back to the top of Rapaki Track before descending Rapaki to the finish line at Hansen Park. “We recognised that there’s so much potential there because we have the crater rim trail track which is already there and it’s such an iconic view to see all the different scenery from different angles the whole way around,” said event organiser Jamie Hawker. This year’s event is somewhat of an experiment. From next year, the event has hosting rights

from Athletics New Zealand to call it the New Zealand trail running championships. “They are also going to use the 2018 event as a trial to assist with the selection of the New Zealand men’s and women’s team to

compete at the 2019 world trail running championships,” said Hawker. “The potential for this is huge. We can see the country’s top runners and a large number of internationals competing in the

future.” The event also has 10km and 21km distance races which both start and finish at Hansen Park. There will also be two children’s events at Hansen Park. The inaugural ultra-marathon has more than 60 entrants signed up to compete, while the more traditional 21km and 10km events have close to 200. The 50km event on Sunday will also act as a build-up to the 60km Kepler Challenge through

Fiordland National Park in December. The Kepler Challenge has become the country’s premier trail run and attracts about 500 athletes, including a large number of international competitors. The top runners in the 50km ultra-marathon are expected to finish in under five hours. The event will be followed by a presentation with place prizes, spot prizes and a great morning tea for all competitors.

Sumner, Taylors Mistake teams off to lifesaving pool champs A 16-STRONG team from Sumner and a team of three from Taylors Mistake travel to Auckland this week for the 15th annual Surf Life Saving New Zealand pool championships. The championships, which start on Friday, will be the first national event of the 2017/18 surf lifesaving season. The event at Sir Owen G Glenn National Aquatic Centre, Albany, has attracted entries from 687 athletes – 70 more than last year. A total of 31 New Zealand clubs have entered, along with a team of 19 representing Surf Life Saving Australia and another 12 from Surf Life Saving New South

Wales. There will be about 400 races contested across age groups from 10 years through to the masters section. Specific team events will provide an opportunity for the teams to go head-to-head in the 4x50m obstacle relay, 4x25m manikin relay and 4x50 medley relay. “Unlike being out in the surf, competitors can watch the action more closely and clubs can compete together and cheer each other on in a stadium-like environment,” said Surf Life Saving New Zealand sport manager Mike Lord. “Many of our members spend

the cooler winter months training for surf-based rescues in a more controlled environment and this is a great way to demonstrate where they’re at ahead of the new summer patrol season.” Points will be allocated for each individual and team race and will then be added together to show the top clubs.

WARMER WATERS: Sumner and Taylors Mistake surf lifesaving members will hit the pool this weekend to take on the country’s best.

Owners Mel Hubber and Kim Beswick are delighted to see many new tenants opening in the new business hub and love the variety and revitalisation it is bringing to an already popular area and complementing existing businesses. House of Travel Ferrymead has technically been operating for 27 years, originating as House of Travel Linwood on Buckleys Road where it specialised in Pilgrimage tours and holiday packages before relocating to Ferry Road and rebranding as House of Travel Ferrymead.

Their core business is still holidays to the Pacific Islands and Australia, North America & UK/Europe, Ocean and River Cruising (top shop for Avalon waterways 2015 and 2016) as well as specialized tailor made independent travel and guided holidays, African safari adventures and everything in between. Church and group travel remain a key focus and so does searching out the best value Premium Economy and Business class fares and how to take advantage of lounge access and airline memberships.

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Love your dentures Is it time to swap your generic denture appearance for a beautiful, natural looking smile? Internationally renowned dental technician Richard Greenlees, PGDipCDTech (University of Otago) of Lovebite is the person to call. His special point of difference is rebuilding what he calls the Oral Architecture, the structure and shape of a patient’s face that is often lost following years of wearing dentures. Lovebite dentures address problems that can arise due to years of the patient wearing incorrectly fitting or poorly functioning dentures, such as poor occlusion (the way the teeth come together), aesthetics, function and hygiene. An intricate knowledge and understanding of facial features allows Richard to return facial tissues back to the correct position, reform lips, and restore beauty and confidence. Richard provides a friendly, discreet service and personally guides his patients through the transformation process to create teeth with small nuances in the fabrication, colour and shape. Carmen, a recent patient said in a thank you letter to Richard, “I highly recommend your craftsmanship to anyone wanting a natural looking smile. Because

True

you do your work in front of your client, one is able to see how meticulous and dedicated you are to ending up with a top class result. My dentures are amazing. They look like one’s own natural teeth. So much time, effort and energy went into the end result. Simply the best.” Richard’s patients have varying needs, from full denture replacement, to first time immediate dentures, implant supported dentures and metal partial dentures. Since he started making teeth in 1980 Richard has travelled extensively, accumulating vast knowledge through training and working in Japan, and running his own practice in the prestigious Harley Street, London for 15 years. He continues to teach his world leading techniques globally. Richard also creates porcelain crowns and veneers, working with like-minded dental professionals. A beautiful new Lovebite smile resembles nature and reflects the patient’s character. It boosts confidence and helps patients to look and feel years younger. To learn more and to view a gallery of stunning Lovebite dentures, visit lovebite.com.

These before and after photographs perfectly highlight the facial rejuvenation that can be achieved with a Lovebite denture (right). The patient’s facial structure and shape have been restored, with her beautiful new smile transforming the way she looks and feels.
