Green light for multimillion-dollar equestrian centre at Lake Hood

By local democracy reporter Jonathan Leask:

A proposed $200m equine stud and equestrian training centre at Lake Hood near Ashburton has the go-ahead.

Commissioner Graham Taylor granted Southern Parallel Equine Centre Limited (SPEC) land use consent, subject to conditions, on Thursday.

It had already received resource consent approval from Environment Canterbury in March.

Project director Catherine Stuart could not be reached last week, but on social media said her team’s long-term focus, strength of purpose, commitment and enduring patience have been rewarded.

“Other than a few conditions placed on SPEC, we have approval to move forward with our ground-breaking plans to bring growth, opportunity, and revenues to the Ashburton region.

“The SPEC team looks forward to supporting and further developing the equestrian sector in the region and wider realms.

“The team looks forward to the work ahead to establish SPEC, ensuring future successes towards confirming Ashburton as an equestrian sports horse destination.”

After “‘jumping’ the hurdles” to get resource consent, the next step is getting building consent.

The plan is to develop the 65ha of land next to Lake Hood and SPEC wants to start construction later this year for an expected opening before the end of 2025.

According to the consent documents, the equine centre would feature an indoor horse sale centre, veterinary clinic, stables with 650 stalls and training arenas as well as fields for show jumping, dressage, eventing, polo training, and grazing pastures.

It was estimated the project would create 850 jobs during construction, and once fully operational would employ 160 people.

Stage two would be an SPC Life Skills and Education Centre, the foundation of the project, built on a separate site.

The consent came with 30 conditions, including that the conditions can be reviewed annually by the Ashburton District Council.

Taylor was satisfied with the proposed 25 calendar day limit for events, with events classified as having over 50 visitors and each event requires a traffic management plan.

All horse manure needs to be cleaned out from the stable areas and disposed of off-site daily and cannot be stored outside the stables.

A proposed condition limiting residential activity on site was requested by submitters but as no consent was sought for any other residential use, Taylor was unable to place further conditions on residential use that has not been applied for.

Mobile classrooms teach more than 200,000 tamariki annually across Aotearoa

Life Education Trust New Zealand has been a beacon of empowerment for Kiwi children and youth for over 35 years. Through innovative teaching programmes, this trust has touched the lives of tamariki and rangatahi across the country, helping them grow and thrive. Supported by funding from Te Puna Tahua Lottery Grants Board, through funds raised by Lotto New Zealand players, Life Education Trust's initiatives - including the renowned ‘Healthy Harold’ programme - have been instrumental in shaping the educational landscape in Aotearoa.

With mobile classrooms traversing the nation, Life Education Trust reaches over 200,000 tamariki every year, bringing quality education to various communities. The unique approach of using specialist educators and Harold the giraffe mascot creates a safe and engaging learning environment.

Life Education Trust is set to launch Harold's Studio this year. This new endeavour will leverage technology to deliver Healthy Harold lessons through online platforms, showcasing the trust's commitment to evolving and enhancing its educational offerings to meet the changing needs of tamariki.

One hundred percent of Lotto New Zealand’s profits go back to support thousands of great causes all over Aotearoa. So, every time you play any Lotto NZ game, it’s a win for our communities, and it’s a win for our tamariki.

Police are warning people to be wary of a WhatsApp scam following an increase in reports in the Wellington District.

In this case scammers use WhatsApp to impersonate family members or friends in saying they need help and in particular need money.

Victims of this scam have received a message from an unknown number, claiming to be a loved one who has just lost their phone and got a replacement.

The scammer then attempts to obtain the victim’s credit card information.

These kinds of scams run constantly and while most people will not respond or buy into them, some people are more vulnerable.

We urge people to have conversations with vulnerable or elderly family members, to help ensure they are aware of the tactics often used by scammers and don't become victims.

If you are in doubt because a person is claiming to be a family member or friend, ask them a personal question – for example their date of birth, maiden name, pet name or name of a sibling.

Do not provide a password, credit card or bank details without making absolute sure, it is someone you know.

No legitimate agency will contact you and ask for your bank details or credit card out of the blue.

Police’s message on scams like this is simple – do not engage with anyone on the phone, and if you think you are being scammed report the incident immediately.

Anyone who believes they are a victim of a scam, in person, over the phone or online, should immediately report it to their bank, and then to their local Police.

If you are employee of ANZ, ASB, BNZ, Kiwibank & Westpac plus any more banks not mentioned above as well as fertility clinics & Plunket, please glue these paper buddies filled with messages in windows of your workplaces!

You are welcome to put any messages related to women's rights in Internet banking & parenthood!

Messages written on paper buddies should be:
1. "I Can Do Internet Banking But Doctors Say Having Children Are Unrealistic For Me"
2. "Why Am I Not Allowed To Have Children Even Though I Can Do Internet Banking?"
3. "I Can Do My Business On TradeMe But Doctors Are Trying To Stop Me From Having Children"
4. "TradeMe Always Helps Me Succeed So Why Can't Doctors See That?"
5. "Other Women Are Allowed To Have Children & Do Their Business On TradeMe So Why Not Me?"
6. "How Do I Show Doctors That I Can Use Internet Banking To Have Children?"
7. "Internet Banking Is Awesome Tool In Helping You Have Children"
8. "Tell Doctors That I Can Plan Everything On Internet Banking When I Have Children"
9. "What Is The Problem With Doctors Stopping Women Using Internet Banking From Having Children?"

You can choose one of these messages above or add your own messages to these paper buddies advocating for women's rights in Internet banking & parenthood!

You can also decorate your paper buddies or just leave your paper buddies completely blank with only messages on front & back

More people making paper buddies to go on display in windows everywhere to speak up for women facing discrimination just because they are using Internet banking, more likely we are to end discrimination against women who use Internet banking!

Then doctors will stop discriminating against women who use Internet banking when they see paper buddies on display in windows everywhere!

Show everyone that women deserves to become mums with help from Internet banking!

Remember that "nothing is impossible when you have access to Internet banking!"
Remember that "nothing is unrealistic when you have access to Internet banking!"

Let's work together to END discrimination against women who use Internet banking!
