Mum donates part of liver to great-nephew Beachlands mother of three, Conny Kiteley, is recovering well after donating part of her liver to save the life of her baby great-nephew last month. The popular office lady at MaraetaiBeachlands Kindergarten, Conny is now almost fully fit, a month after surgeons transplanted part of her liver into her great-nephew Felix Alderson of Whangamata. Conny is well-known by many Pohutukawa Coast families for her care of pre-schoolers at the kindergarten where she has worked for eight years as part time teacher aide and parttime administrator. But her love for little ones was taken to another level this year when her nephew Paul, and his wife Tammy, started looking for someone to save their baby’s life Felix, now 14-months-old, was born with biliary atresia, a rare condition of the liver that requires surgical intervention and often transplant. Felix struggled through infancy, fighting to reach the weight required to go on the transplant list, until May this year when the family put out a call for help to family and friends. Liver transplant donors do not need to be genetically related, nor necessarily a blood type match. In this case Felix is related through Conny’s husband Jason’s side of the family. But Conny knew as a non-drinker, a non-smoker and a rare blood type donor, that she wanted to put herself

Initially Felix’s father Paul was found to be compatible but his liver was too large, then another potential donor went through the process but was not a match. After that, Conny reconfirmed her strong interest, and was invited in for a battery of tests which kept coming out positive. The process of arranging testing was both arduous and exciting, explains Conny. By far

the greatest moment in the process was announcing to her nephew that she was a match for baby Felix. “The Transplant Centre said I could call him myself and I did that right away, in the car, it was humbling to be able to give him the news,” she says. Meanwhile, young Felix’s health was deteriorating. Having just achieved the required • TO PAGE 3

Memorial plan for Beachlands Planning is underway for a Beachlands War Memorial community garden. The project is being led by Beachlands Anzac Day organiser John Harris, who served with the British Army in Berlin during the Cold War. “Over the years when Colin Carr was running the Anzac Parade he would talk about how we should have our own memorial. It was brought up again this year, so I said to the committee ‘why don’t we do it’. They told me to see what I could do,” says John. The question was then: where would the garden be located? John visited both the Clevedon and Howick war memorials, and talked to a number of people about the project. Based on what he saw, and advice received, he has decided on the area between the turning circle and the clifftop at the end of Wakelin Rd, next to the Sunkist Bay reserve. “When you drive past these memorials that are needles pointing

at the sky, no one notices. They think nothing of them until Anzac Day. So rather than having something like that, I thought it would be better to have a garden that people could sit in and enjoy.” The plan is for a square shaped area that will have a child-safe water feature in the middle. This will be in marble and one side will be the Anzac ode “They shall not grow old…” with a soldier and poppy. On the other wide will be a cross and a Bible quote from John 15:13 “Greater love has no-one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends…” There would also be a natural stone wall with seats on either side. As there are no Beachlands-Maraetai war dead (they were little more than bach settlements at that time), there will instead be campaigns the Anzacs have fought listed on the inside curve of the wall. The area will be flanked by gardens and seating with a flagpole in • TO PAGE 8

Restless night dreaming of John Key... THE EDITOR SAYS BY DUNCAN PARDON duncan@pctimes.co.nz I tossed and turned a lot during what proved to be a restless sleep on Sunday. This was because I had images of a smiling John Key flashing past my eyes in a seemingly endless loop. Over the weekend Fran and I drove to Rotorua and back. At what seemed like every couple of hundred metres or so along the journey, he was there -- John Key, smiling at us from his big blue hoardings for kilometre after kilometre after… Sometimes he was on his own, sometimes with National candidates. Along our local roads he appears with the vowel-less Mr Bayly. Elsewhere down the line he is interchanged with a variety of other candidates as each electorate blends into the next. By the time we’d reached the top of the Mamakus I was frothing at the mouth and gnawing on the steering wheel

LOOKING BACK From the files of the Pohutukawa Coast Times From the Pohutukawa Coast Times of August 6 1999... • An attempt is being made to hand over the management of the Kawakawa Bay Hall to the community. Manukau City Council has asked the Kawakawa Bay Community Association if it would be willing to manage the hall. But association president Mike Mullane says his members are not impressed. “This means the community having to fund a $10,000 (for a part time manager) salary in return for an annual income of $500 from the hall. It doesn’t sound like a great business offer,” says Mike. • The Whitford Quarry will help keep rates down, says Manukau City Council. That’s the argument being used by the council to justify its decision to spend $320,000 looking at the feasibility of expanding the operation.

while yelling: “Yes, John, I promise I’ll Party Vote National, anything…but please MAKE IT STOP!” And then, suddenly, it did. As we entered the outskirts of Rotorua there was a hoarding with David Cunliffe on it, looking like he was desperately trying to find someone to apologise to, while telling us to “Vote Positive.” I’d love to, but there isn’t a “positive” or “negative” option available on the voting paper, so at some stage David is going to have to take a deep breath and ask people to vote for, well, HIM! Then I was hit by sun strike. At least that’s what I thought it was until I realised it was the sun reflecting off Tamati Coffey’s teeth. Clearly, his hoardings must be made by the same person who air-brushed Helen Clark during the 2008 election campaign. Other non-National hoardings started to appear. Interestingly, the Maori candidates for both Labour and the Maori Party felt compelled to use some props. They appeared on their hoardings wearing a cowboy hat, holding a baby, in front of a random group of other people and so on. The most mysterious is the Maori Party hoarding near here, on the corner of Ormiston and Murphys Rd. The

candidate is holding a….err… heck, I’ve no idea what he’s holding! Send me an email if you know. Back at Rotorua, the Green Party then put in an appearance. I nearly mistook their hoarding for an antilitter campaign. It had a nice environmental message with lots of stuff going on in the background and a small, very discreet Green Party logo in one corner. Trust the Greens to spoil the fun and actually put a political message on their hoardings. The most budget looking hoarding was a simple black and white one for the Internet Mana Party, somewhat ironic when you consider who is backing the campaign. I was disappointed that the hoarding didn’t feature a photo of Kim Dotcom but then I suppose even he couldn’t afford the wood needed to accommodate that. All too soon, it was time to go home and once again run the gauntlet of smiling John Keys all the way back to Auckland. Still, I suppose it could have been worse. It could have been Conservative Party hoardings with Colin Craig looking like he’s the first victim of the zombie apocalypse.

Erosion plantings all about people working together YOUR COUNCILLOR SAYS BY BILL CASHMORE Auckland councillor for Franklin The PC Times printed an article a couple of weeks ago about the planting in Kawakawa Bay that was a community initiative to try and prevent coastal erosion. Thirty people, or there abouts, planted 1400 specimens in 3 hours. A great effort. The test will be how successful the plants are and how well they slow down the encroachment of the sea towards the road. It has taken time to put this together and thanks have to go to the Franklin Local Board for its continued support and perseverance. The Kawakawa Bay Community Association had been advocating for this project for years. Finally there is a start. So a big well done to Mary and Stephen and Phil and Jan, and to all involved. Omana resident Logan Kemp has sent through a history of erosion control measures trialled in the Beachlands and Maraetai area. It’s a very interest-

ing read. Some projects have had more success than others but the intent has been consistent – people working together to help preserve what is special to their community. Brigid Glass has been interested in coastal erosion protection measures on our eastern coastline. Brigid’s energy in this area will be welcomed in the coming discussion about this special part of our ward. One of the great positives of Franklin is the community spirit as exhibited on the planting day, as shown on the Waiuku estuary with the mangrove clean up and the coastal walk way projects. As is shown by the Awhitu Landcare Group in their plantings, the Clevedon Landcare, the volunteers in the Hunua Ranges. Our community associations are an essential part of the fabric that makes our Ward such a great place to live and play. Franklin is a huge area with an extremely di-

verse range of population. Having groups of enthusiastic and capable people advocating for their communities is a real benefit and enabler to get things done. Yes the processes can be slow and cumbersome, even frustrating. But occasionally there is a success and one success will lead to others. Hopefully the next one will be erosion protection planting on the Maraetai-Beachlands coast supported by a keen and vigorous community group. No matter what their skill level, experience or age everyone has something to offer, to contribute and enable a more positive community. I look forward to catching up with old friends and meeting new ones when we plant the foreshore on our eastern coast. Remember, a stranger is only a friend I have not yet met.

Council reduces building numbers Auckland Council is in the process of reducing the number of its council buildings in the central city from seven to three to save money and create more efficient and productive work spaces. The council purchased the former ASB Tower at 135 Albert Street in July 2012 for $104m and staff are presently moving in. The move to 135 Albert Street will result in savings of about $2.7m a year over the next 10 years.

Science programme excites Clevedon School students An innovative science and technology programme at Clevedon School is proving popular with pupils and parents alike. “We had a very generous local benefactor who gave the school a sizable donation to set up the new programme,” says school principal Julie Schumacher. “It’s a whole new integrated look at science and technology and it makes it more authentic for the pupils.” Parent feedback has been positive. “Parents tell us that their children are excited and enthusiastic about coming to school and being involved,” says Julie. “Our boys love it - their engagement has been fantastic.” Julie comments that girls tend to “engage with anything” but it generally takes more to capture the interest of boys. The programme is run one day a week with Years 5 and 6 pupils in a previously under-utilized multi-purpose classroom that was built in 2008. “We are now able to provide the resources and specilised skills that we cannot provide in a general classroom,” explains Julie. “The programme also complements and supports units being taught in the classroom.” The programme is being taught by Melvin Din, a secondary science and

technology teacher with close to 40 years’ experience who shares his expertise between Clevedon School, Takanini School and South Auckland Middle School. Melvin has not only been involved with the technology curriculum since it was introduced in 1992, but he has also helped write the New Zealand curriculum and trained technology teachers. He believes the programme ignites children’s interest in science and technology at a young age and builds their enquiry cycle. “It inspires them to come up with ideas and it encourages them to make something they have a desire and dream to do,” says Melvin. “It also integrates other learning areas, for example artwork and information technology.” He takes half a class at a time so they get pelenty of one on one assistance. Projects have included electronic basketball hoops, hidden drawers, steady hand games, doll houses and robotic cars. Pupils also keep a journal of their weekly progress. Melvin also takes the years 7 and 8s for science on Wednesday afternoons. A group of 20 G and T students are also working with Melvin before school on CRESTA (Creative Science and Tchnology Awards) projects.

Clevedon School students Tama Brookes (10) (left), Maritha Sword (10) and Jake Watson (9) working with their science and technology teacher Melvin Din. Julie and Melvin are keen to extend the new programme to include Years 3 and 4 next year. “We’re hoping their might be more benefactors out there in the community to help us continue with the programme,” says Julie.

‘It’s been quite a journey’ says liver donor • FROM PAGE 1 weight to qualify for transplant, he was hit with the debilitating rotavirus. After vomiting until he brought up blood, the rapidly failing tot was airlifted to Waikato hospital where he saw out the rest of the virus, losing 800 precious grams in the process. By the time the match with Conny was confirmed on June 18th, Felix was on a ward at Starship hospital, having spent two days in the paediatric intensive care unit. He was a remarkable shade of yellow and the doctors admitted the need for his transplant was urgent. However, even early on the morning of the planned surgery there were still variables, says Conny, involving blood suitability, a potential deceased donor being thrown in the mix then discounted, and the availability of surgeons. After a four-hour operation, under surgeon Peter Johnston, Conny woke to find Felix had only just started his surgery, which took about five hours with surgeon

Adam Bartlett. While still in intensive care, Conny learned that Felix had come through his operation well and his health was already beginning to improve. She also received a massive compliment from Mr Bartlett, who described her liver as the healthiest he had ever seen. “I don’t like beetroot and I don’t like kale, but I grew it in the garden and drank the healthy juice to give Felix the best possible liver I could, “ she says.“ I truly think being a non-drinker and a non-smoker helps too,” Conny spent a week in hospital, before returning home to continue her recovery. She says the support from family and friends has been amazing, including the Auckland Kindergarten Association and her colleagues at MaraetaiBeachlands Kindergarten. Biliary atresia is the same condition suffered by Pohutukawa Coast schoolgirl Lara Sutherland, whom Conny knows well. “When I was asked did I know what biliary

atresia was, I thought yes, I do. I know Lara and Samantha and all the struggles the Sutherlands have been through,” says Conny. “Samantha has been amazing, she has helped me so much with this process, despite Lara recently having been hospitalised too.” Felix and his family remain at Ronald McDonald house where he is improving daily. His complexion has returned to that of a healthy child, and last week he took his first steps. Like Lara, little Felix will need to take immunosuppressant medication for the rest of his life but could otherwise enjoy a normal life. Now well on the way back to her own trademark wellness and boasting a very tidy abdominal scar, Conny has already started exercising, and is looking forward to soon returning to work. She is also looking forward to a holiday in Fiji with husband Jason later this year, having missed out on a planned family holiday with their three teenage sons and her sister’s family at the time of her surgery and Felix’s transplant.

“It’s been quite a journey, but I would do it again in a flash,” says Conny, of her part as donor. “If I could give any message to people about

this, it would be to register as a donor on your driver’s licence - the more deceased donors there are, the fewer live donors are needed.”


Rates notices go out Auckland ratepayers will receive their rates notice for the 2013/2014 rating year from this week, the third year of Auckland’s three-year move to a single rating system. Over time, all Auckland properties of similar value and use will be charged a similar amount of rates, regardless of where ratepayers live or work in the region. Rates are used to pay for things such as public transport, events, parks and other community facilities. There are different payment options available, as well as ways to help people manage their payments, including rebates, remissions and postponement schemes. Council approved its 2014/2015 annual plan in June. This included an average 2.5% rates

increase across Auckland, which is an average increase of 0.1% for businesses and 3.7% for residents. This year’s average increase is below the 4.9% forecast in the council’s Long-term Plan.

Learn to Sail starts new season Maraetai Sailing Club will be building on the success of its new Learn to Sail programme introduced in September last year. “We have had great feedback and we are going to continue this programme again this year,” says Mike Clark, the Sailing Master at Maraetai Sailing Club, who is in charge of the revitalised junior sailing programme “We taught the students to sail over a number of weeks with our beginner sailors being coached by six parent coaches and our level 2 and above sailors being coached by three professional coaches, to much success,” says Mike. The coaching programme was developed in conjunction with Andrew Brown, a top yachting coach, from Force Racing. Andrew has coached many class types from Optimist through to Olympic classes. This year the sailing club has seven parents who have volunteered their time to become

Yachting New Zealand qualified coaches to help run the Learn to Sail programme for beginner sailors on Sunday mornings. The club will also continue its experienced junior sailing coaching programme. This year the experienced sailors will be split up into three groups: 1. Optimists and Starling sailors who have just completed Learn to Sail and are confident on the water; 2. Optimist sailors who are advanced in their confidence on the water; 3. Starling sailors who are advanced in their confidence on the water. “We are going to coach these three groups with professional coaches recommended by Andrew Brown using funds from the regattas we have held at Maraetai Sailing Club and grants. Thank you to the wider community that has supported us,” says Mark. Season registration has been combined with the Learn to Sail briefing

BEACHLANDS & MARAETAI Racing a Tuk Tuk across India for charity

One of Beachlands’ most adventurous exports, 21 year old Sophie Moore, has just hit the road again, this time in the name of charity and fun, on a TukTuk race across India. Sophie left last month for the subcontinent, where she is meeting up with five friends who are splitting into teams of three for a 3500km race in a seven horsepower three wheel TukTuk. The two groups are racing each other as a fundraiser through British Charity, Virgin Money, which collects and donates money to various international charities. Through sponsorship, Sophie and each of her friends – who she met at a camp in Australia – each hope to raise 800 pounds, through Virgin Moneygiving, whilst travelling on a shoestring and making their way across India in the

TukTuk. The group visited the Taj Mahal and had a quick look at some of India’s sights before they headed off the beaten track to the town of Shillong o be matched with their TukTuk and given driver training. They then have a plan to meet up in the town of Cochin within three weeks. “So the TukTuk only has three wheels and it doesn’t go faster than 50km, but we are confident,” Sophie told the PC Times prior to her journey. “There are no rules on where to go and what do to, where to stay. We are going to wing it.” “Everyone I have talked to thinks this is crazy, and no I have never done anything like this before, but I’m not scared,” says Sophie. “I don’t really know what to expect, I am go-

ing to have an open mind about it so that when things go wrong I’m not like: ‘This should be perfect.’” Sophie has barely seen home since she went to Indonesia to teach English after leaving school, well and truly falling for the travel bug. She has so far escaped all the bugs and accidents that go with travelling and feels confident she can do the same in India. “I have not been sick and I am not going to get sick. People have got hurt on the TukTuk run before but nothing serious.” Some of Sophie’s confidence is based on the firm friendships she has with the boys, two Australians and three Englishmen, after working as instructors with them at The Great Aussie British Camp last year.

PROPERTY WISE ON THE COAST Winter a great time to list your home With winter in full swing many people have asked us is this a good time to be selling their home. Many believe that holding off until spring is the right thing to do, but don’t be fooled, winter is still a great time to sell. There are plenty of buyers out there keen and ready to go. There is never enough property to show people in this growing community. Generally fewer listing in winter can be an advantage as it opens your home up to greater exposure. A lack of listings can also create buyer competition. Often colder weather can see ‘Tyre Kickers’ staying home leaving the serious buyers to give serious consideration to the merits your home offers. Two great features sure to showcase your property is the use of heating and lighting during the cold months. Buyers often ask themselves if a home felt cold when looking through a house, so now is a great time to show off your winter heating. It can be of particular appeal if you are selling an older home and can be a pivotal factor when a buyer looks to make their home buying decision. With the shorter days and less natural light people who are thinking of attending open homes will drive past at night and nothing looks better than a house lit up and sparkling; therefore it may be a good idea to set up a timer for those night time passers-by. *Statistics New Zealand

Annual Beachlands Ball Saturday

Scholarship for young farmer

The annual Beachlands Community Fundraiser Ball kicks off at Te Puru Community Centre this Saturday August 9 to raise funds for Beachlands School. Ball organisers say this year will be the best yet and promise a great evening of delicious food, dancing and fantastic entertainment. “This is our biggest fundraising initiative for the year, so anything that can help us raise money for the school is really important. Whether its literacy and mathematics aids, sports equipment or other resources, the kids will benefit in so many ways which means a lot to local families,” says Beachlands PTA chairperson Rachel Perfect. “Every little bit counts, and our loyal supporters

This year’s recipient of the $4000 Beef + Lamb New Zealand (B+LNZ) Telford Agribusiness Scholarship, Ryan Roberts from Clevedon, has a clear goal. He plans a hands-on career in the beef industry – ideally within the stud scene – before eventually moving back to the family property. The 19-year-old completed a Certificate in Agriculture last year and is now halfway through the one-year Diploma in Agriculture at Telford – A Division of Lincoln University. Ryan grew up on a 240-hectare horse stud and beef property at Clevedon. He studied at Howick College in Auckland, before heading south to Telford. Ryan says the scholarship will help a lot. “It was quite difficult last year and this funding will make a big difference.” In line with Ryan’s clear goals, he can tell you exactly where he plans to be in 2024. “I’d like to be managing a beef farm or stud, then eventually move back home to farm.” Immediately after his studies, Ryan is plan-

and helpers never cease to amaze me.” This year’s charity auction includes a donation by local resident and All Black legend Grant Fox, who generously donated a signed June 2014 team All Blacks jersey. “We’ve also got an awesome 6 piece live band Rocket to get people on their feet, countless mystery envelopes and other great auction prizes available as well,” says Rachel. Last year the Community Fundraiser Ball raised $15,000 for Beachlands School and was attended by over 200 people. Rachel hopes ticket sales exceed last year ‘because the money raised is going to a very good cause’. Tickets cost $55 per person and are available from the Beachlands Post Shop. The Egyptian-themed evening includes delicious canapés and dinner by local professional chef, Thomas Barta from Food4You. Transport to Te Puru is available through Coastal Shuttles, $2 per person each way. Pick up is from 6:45pm at Beachlands Chartered Club or Maraetai Bakery. Return shuttles depart from Te Puru to Beachlands/ Maraetai from 11:45pm onwards. Check out the Beachlands Community Ball on Facebook for more information.

Bay sewerage wins award Watercare’s Kawakawa Bay wastewater system has received one of three Environment and Sustainability Awards for large projects presented by IPENZ, Auckland Branch at the prestigious Arthur Mead Awards Function. Named after long-serving Auckland City Waterworks Engineer, botanist, and outdoorsman Arthur Mead, who was responsible for the initial survey and design work on the Upper Nihotupu and Huia Dams, the awards are presented annually to the projects that best address sustainability, potential adverse environmental effects, waste management and community involvement. Watercare Acting Chief Executive Raveen Jaduram said continuing to improve the company’s wastewater treatment services in order to enhance the health of Auckland’s harbours, estuaries and waterways remained one of Watercare’s main objectives and a key focus of the company’s capital investment plans. The Kawakawa Bay project also illustrated the close working relationships Watercare maintained with iwi, residents, and community groups across Auckland. Designed by Australasian engineering consultancy Harrison Grierson, and constructed by Fulton Hogan, who also managed the network during its first year of operation, the Kawakawa Bay system was handed over to Watercare last year. The system enabled the removal of aging septic tanks that had over time polluted groundwater and local streams, leading to the Bay being declared unsafe for swimming in 2002. Its safe-forswimming status was restored in November 2012.

in the pit. Once in the network, wastewater moves along the pipeline to the vacuum pump station by the differential pressure that is created by the opening and closing of the vacuum valves throughout the pipe network. Wastewater is subsequently conveyed from the collection tank at the vacuum pump station to the treatment plant via positive displacement pumps and a pressure rising main. The Kawakawa Bay treatment plant employs an advanced, four-stage treatment process similar to that used at Watercare’s larger Mangere and Rosedale facilities. Wastewater passes through alternating oxygen-rich and oxygen-depleted environments, enabling a range of different bacteria to break down organic contaminants. Residual organic contaminants and nitrogen are removed in a biological membrane reactor; bacteria and viruses by ultrafiltration. The treated effluent then flows to storage lagoons from where it is used to spray irrigate forest behind the treatment plant, more than two kilometres from the foreshore.

The blokes demolished an old shed and repaired a fenceline for Brookby resident Jill Menzies. Says Jill: “It’s great to get a big job like this done for a reduced rate, and it’s also nice to know the money is going to a good cause.

Clevedon School admires Britten bike

Clevedon School was abuzz with motorcycle fever when the world famous Britten Superbike made a guest appearance at school assembly. Students Reuben and Ethan Claridge shared the inspiring story of Christchurch-born man John Britten’s life, from a school-boy who struggled at school, to a man who went on to design what is often referred to as the most advanced motorcycle ever built in the world, in the 1990’s. The Britten was designed and developed by John and a small team of friends out of his garage in Christchurch, and, after thousands of hours of hard work, trials, adversity and heartbreak, went on to beat the world’s best superbikes in Daytona, as well

as breaking world records – some of which still stand today. Around 150 Clevedon school children (and some parents and teachers!) experienced the rare opportunity to have their photos taken on the Britten, raising $300 for the school and creating life-long memories. The only time most people will ever get to see a Britten bike is at Te Papa Museum, and you aren’t allowed to touch it! LEFT: The Britten with students (from rear left) Jake Watson, Riley Boyle, Toby Wheeler, Reuben Claridge. Front: Luke Ahern, James Michaelides, Ethan Claridge.

Ceremony at new gardens could be in time for April • FROM PAGE 1 one corner for use during Anzac Day parades. John hopes local school children will maintain and look after the gardens. On Anzac Day, the parade would march to the gardens for the flag raising ceremony. The adjacent Sunkist Bay Reserve would provide plenty of room for residents to gather and marquees would be used if the weather was wet. A sub committee has been formed and John has the support of the Manukau Beautification Charitable Trust and Franklin Local Board member Malcolm Bell. He will also be seeking Howick RSA approval. John hopes to have the project in place in time for next year’s Anzac Day Parade. The time frame is short, but he believes there are plenty of organisations willing to fund projects that would mark the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings in April next year. The biggest challenge might be getting Auckland Council to agree to having the reserve used for the memorial garden project before next April.

The Pohutukawa Coast...facing the future On August 20 the Pohutukawa Coast Community Association will hold its AGM. At that meeting the PCCA will be seeking the opinion of local residents on what issues it should address as the district enters a new stage of development. The discussion will be in the context of the PCCA’s online survey (go to www. pcca.org.nz). Over the next couple of weeks, the PC Times has invited a number of people to present their point of view on a variety of local issues, in the hope of stimulating discussion about the future direction of the community we all love...

2. How important is it to upgrade our main roads? By Lance Gedge Glorified farm tracks...a phrase often used to describe our local roads. An over the top statement but I think there is a lot of truth contained within. Pot holed and narrow, poorly sealed and subsided roads with no cycle lanes. Very limited public transport opportunities and many gaps in the footpath network. A fair assessment? As development explodes across the Coast our roads – already busy – will not cope. How many new homes should we expect? With current development levels, expect at least 1300. The average household in New Zealand has two cars, so the possibility of an extra 2600 cars on the local roads is a sobering thought. Also add increased school buses, quarry and water trucks. Is now the time for a major roading upgrade? At a bare minimum a roundabout at the intersection of Jack Lachlan and Whitford Maraetai road is required now! Is funding available? There is if Auckland Council uses contributions made in local developments for local projects. I hope council won’t do their usual by reacting only in the face of tragedy. • Lance is a resident on Whitford Maraetai Rd.

By Neil Hamilton Q: How many men does it take to change a roll of toilet paper?? A: Don’t know. It’s never been done!. The essence of this joke is perhaps a bit harsh (especially from a male perspective), but the under lying theme to this and the other change jokes I have just read is that people generally dislike change. It’s far more comfortable to settle for what’s known, tried and true. It’s hard enough for an individual or a family to cope with change, it’s a completely different dynamic when a whole community is thrust into the context of the type of change the communities of Beachlands and Maraetai are about to face. Change is a part of the world we live in, and given the absolute beauty of the area we all live in, continued development of our bit of paradise is certain. For far too long I’ve been hearing a “head in the sand” conversation that laments the reluctance of change and how we like our world just the way it is. It is time for all of us to make friends with this “change” word and become positive voices in partnering with business leaders in our community, with Auckland Council, developers, local community groups, churches, and the community at large. Collectively, our voices will result in a phenomenal outcome that future generations will be proud of.

Roading needs to get back on the agenda. The needs of the elderly have been overlooked for too long. Reticulated water must be considered as considered as the community grows. The question is: how do we action this kind of change? The starting point for my suggested solution is the kind of synergy I have described above. Synergy is about deliberate co operation and collective strategy. Let’s embrace the future of our area with a sense of pride and excitement. • Neil is pastor of the Beachlands Baptist Church.

By Jenny Carter In a time when society tells us that “me” is so much more important than “us”, I rarely see the mention of our children or our grandchildren in the plan for Beachlands-Maraetai. We need to plan for our future generations. I have seen bad community development and have worked in areas where we try to put people back together again. Our plans need to be robust and forward thinking, not opportunities for excessive consumerism just because there are more people. What community, economic and social opportunities do each of these development stages bring? How will it benefit our grandchildren? Are there enough quality made houses to shelter our families, rich and poor? Does it stop the rats scurrying in the rafters, or chewing through the gib, like poorer families have to cope with today in this community? Retirement facilities, youth facilities, any age facilities: where are the plans? Our sleepy little hollow is expanding and the social ills are already starting to show. It’s too late for the fence at the top of the cliff, the bodies are being mended at the bottom now. So how critical are local halls and a new library? I would ask how critical is it to have places that create a sense of belonging – drop in in places that don’t cost money but have a heart? How about public gardens and parks where you can rest awhile from the stresses of life. The pace of life is getting faster in Beachlands/Pine Harbour/ Spinnaker Bay. People have moved here for the lifestyle but have brought their city pace with them. How will new infrastructure enhance this lifestyle? How will we engage our community to give a little of “me” to make a difference for “us”. We need community facilities that are easy to access, meet the needs of the most vulnerable of our community and fit in with what Beachlands is. Celebrate the arts, the environment and our community; believe that everyone has something of value to offer, and create an environment to allow this to happen. • Jenny Carter is manager of the Beachlands Community Trust.

By Bill Gulik YES: I support a road bridge from Spinnaker Bay to Third View Ave, Beachlands. . Primarily I think that the provision of a second road exit/entry to Spinnaker Bay is a health and safety issue. The number of houses in Spinnaker Bay has been rapidly increasing and there are over a hundred yet to come . This increasingly busy neighbourhood is served by only one access road – Constellation Drive. This directly connects with the busiest road in Beachlands, Beachlands Rd. The intersection of Constellation Drive and Beachlands Rd will come under even more pressure when the supermarket is built adjacent to the intersection. If there is any emergency in Spinnaker Bay requir-

ing the ambulance or fire service there is only one way in and that is via the intersection with busy Beachlands Rd. It is simply asking for trouble and bad planning to have only one access to Spinnaker Bay . As the housing intensifies, Spinnaker Bay people feel increasingly hemmed in. We need to have another connection to Beachlands which is more direct than Constellation Drive . A road linkage to Third View Ave would be a great asset for parents taking their children to Beachlands School which at present they can access only by taking the busier and longer Beachlands Rd route. A road link though Third View Ave would be a safer and shorter route. This was always envisaged in the initial plans for Spinnaker Bay subdivision and should be put in place now. • Bill is a resident of Spinnaker Bay.

NO: I oppose the construction of a road bridge connection between Third View Ave and Spinnaker Bay. Third View Ave was not built as a thoroughfare. It is now, and was built as, a no exit street. It is a very narrow road where it is difficult in places for two cars to pass and impossible if there are cars parked on the roadside. Council officers have advised residents that if the road bridge is built there is no likelihood of Council spending money to widen Third View Ave. It would be impossible and dangerous for Third View Ave to cope with the inevitable increased traffic volume without being widened. The connection could be made only if Third View Ave is upgraded. At present some of the residences have very steep drive ways. If the volume of traffic increased it would be even more difficult to get in and out of our houses

If Council reconsidered and decided to widen the road this would not improve access from our driveways on to Third View. The berm would be narrowed and our driveways would be made shorter and steeper and more difficult to negotiate. There are high voltage (1000 volts ) power lines feeding the pumping station at the end of the road . They hang quite low and would have to be repositioned It is not that I think there should be no connection with Spinnaker Bay , but the more suitable way would be to build a pedestrian and cycle bridge. This would have far less impact on the reserve which it passes over. Third View Ave is a quiet pleasant street and we value its character. This would be retained if a pedestrian /cycleway was built but destroyed if it were made into a road thoroughfare. • Name withheld by request.
