Long grass on empty residential sections is one of the main gripes of Waimakariri residents who complain to the council about nuisance behaviour.

The complaints have prompted the council to come up with a property maintenance and nuisance bylaw. Under the bylaw, residents could be made to cut overgrown grass, tidy up junk, or silence livestock in residential areas.

Toni from Toni Thomas Architectural Design

Are you planning to:

Remove load bearing walls?
Add a bathroom or toilet?

Are you planning to:

Remove load bearing walls?
Add a bathroom or toilet?
Move walls and rooms inside your home?

Do you know that alterations within the existing footprint of your home can usually be done as a Building Consent Exemption?

What does this mean for your project?

It means far less cost for you, you can save thousands of dollars on council fees;
It means shorter processing times;
And it means an internal building project is far more affordable.

I specialise in drawing up and applying for Building Consent Exemptions and I offer a fast, friendly, and professional service. If you would like to know more please don't hesitate to get in touch. I am happy to discuss and advise on any size project.

Regular gym member Karl Battersby's wife Kylie has been battling breast cancer for seven years and has now been told it is terminal. The couple have three daughters - 12, 11 and 9 - who all attend Fernside School.

To help the family out, Saints is holding the largest functional fitness team challenge event they believe has ever been held in North Canterbury. Teams will have to complete 15 unique fitness/team building problem solving stations and gather points to win. All fitness levels are welcome, with the competition aimed more at fun and charity.

The Saints team is aiming to fill 15 teams of 10 people. All team members must make a donation to gain entry to the event, with all proceeds going to the Battersby family.

A large family-style barbecue and drinks will be provided to participants and supporters after the event, which kicks off at 10am on Sunday, October 20.

Saints owners Ash and Aaron McConville say Karl Battersby is a "consistent member" of the gym who goes to the 5am class every day.

"We truly do have a ridiculously unique close community, so putting an event together like this was easy," Aaron McConville says.

The team has already raised $7000 for the Battersby family. They do not have a target in mind, but have asked the wider public to "throw in whatever they can".
