Our region is the only one in the country keeping up with Auckland in the latest Quotable Value annual property value report (www.qv.co.nz). The Queenstown Lakes average property is now worth $693,045. Up 7.2% on the previous year. By way of comparison, average property values in Christchurch are up 3.2% to $469,742; Nelson up 2% to $410,363; Dunedin up 0.7% to $292,220; and Invercargill up 0.5% to $204,705. Over all, the average property value in New Zealand is up 4.9% to $488,674. That’s good news if you are already on the property ladder. But it is not all doom and gloom for those with the will and looking for the way to get on the ladder and into your own home. Over a decade ago when developers cut the first sections out at Lakes Hayes Estate, it changed the realms of possibility for hundreds of families in the Wakatipu. It made the dream possible and has had a significant impact on Queenstown’s growth from holiday resort to viable long term residential town with real people living in a real community. Lake Hayes Estate properties are now at the upper end of the affordable spectrum. With an average house price in the Queenstown Lakes of just under $700,000, the average house in Lakes Hayes Estate would be not far off. And with good reason. It has developed into a very nice place to live. The transformation from the region’s most affordable new suburb to what it is now has taken time. The dominant noise to wake up to on any given day is no longer the banging of hammers but that of children playing. The trees have grown and houses settled into their loving landscapes. Bradley Connaghan, Marika Scannell and Gracie McQuaig at Rockformation’s Gig on the Green at the Village Green on Friday (Photo: Jodi Walters) Now take a drive next door to Shotover Country and the same cycle of development is happening again. Before Shotover Country came on the market what options did an aspiring first home buyer have? An unfortunately far too common option was to simply pack up and leave the district, such was the sense of hopelessness some people felt. Robbing us of good people who would have contributed to build a good community. It is a reality of modern life that not everyone will own their own home. And in a desirable location like the Wakatipu, even with new subdivisions like Lake Hayes Estate, Arthurs Point, Jacks Point and now Shotover Country the affordability will always be at the absolute limits or beyond of most people. Like similar parts of the world there is the risk the majority of our working population will have to take their opportunities for home ownership in far flung parts of the wider region. Into Southland and Central Otago, commuting to work in the Wakatipu but not contributing to the growth and vitality of the Queenstown Lakes community. So as another couple of hundred local families take their opportunity in Shotover Country, the next subdivision, or higher density rezoning of existing housing stock needs be in the planning. If the Queenstown Lakes does not continue to make available ownership opportunities close to New Zealand’s average property value of $488,674, then remember the year 2015 because this is the year our community growth rate reached its peak. And by 2025, the average Queenstown family will be living in Alexandra.

How can they justify charging $80 to change the name on a ticket, should you no longer want to go? Who even cares who uses a ticket to access a concert? I emailed a complaint to them and they tried to justify by saying airlines charge a high fee for a name change. Sooo? Airlines send a number of passengers up into the air in an aircraft and need to be sure they know who is on board. No other concerts have the need to know who is attending. In fact, you don’t even get your name on your ticket. THEY DON’T NEED TO KNOW. I hope the fact that ticket sales were poor last year is a lesson to them that people don’t want to purchase so far in advance and then run the risk of such a rip-off if their plans change. Most concert goers for this event would have been 18/19 year olds and over $200 for a ticket is enough to pay without being eye-gouged with a $80 fee in the event their plans have changed. They should be paying us for use of money for the 6 months, they had the income. We certainly won’t be buying into their scam in the future. The second place-getter for a concert fail has to be Otago Daily Times. We wanted to purchase tickets for Neil Diamond and saw that the Otago Daily Times were doing a pre-sale for subscribers. As we had been considering subscribing, this was an added incentive and the ad clearly stated that new subscribers would be able to get in on the pre-sale as well. Except that it turned out they sent their list of subscribers to the ticketing agency the week before their ad went into the newspaper. After subscribing, I checked that everything was in order for us to be able to access the pre-sale and was assured it was. On the day, guess what? It didn’t work. We rang ODT to be told about the list having already been sent the previous week and they would sort it and phone us back. Still waiting!!! Eventually I was able to access the tickets by using a friend’s subscription, but a total fail on the part of ODT. Why did they even advertise that new subscribers would be eligible when they had already sent the list away? Perhaps they should stick to printing newspapers! Out Of Pocket Response from ODT The ODT apologises for any inconvenience. A master list was sent to the ticketing company a week before the promotion. This would have captured most of the subscribers at that point. All new subscribers from that date should have been sent on a daily basis to the ticketing company. This did not happen and again we apologise. Once notified of the issue we corrected it and sent new files. Overall our subscribers were extremely pleased with the offer and they definitely made the most of the opportunity to buy the best seats to the concert. Did you go away over the holidays?

Are they not allowed to ride their bikes on that road... here I was thinking it was a public road...keep up with the times “concerned motorist”...cyclists can ride anywhere now... even on public footpaths and through the busy mall... its us that has to keep out of their way..not like it used to be.... Mr Greeny Riding 4,5,6 abreast approx 2 car lengths deep - that is illegal. Cyclists are not allowed to ride on foothpaths unless their wheel is below a certain size, or they are delivering post. Patron Roundabout Madness - Issue 480 Letter To The Editor EVERYONE uses roads. Even the CHICKEN crossed the road! Trucks, pedestrians, rental cars, farmers, bikers, motorists and animals. Its about sharing the road with tolerance . I wasn’t in the bunch of cycles on the Glenorchy road, that last week’s letter writer complained about. However I have some points to make, and I’ve also spoken with some of the riders that the motorist complained about. Yes the cyclists could’ve been more courteous, they are now apologetic, and we will endeavour to continue to sharpen cyclist’s manners. We will be contacting the organisers of the race to make changes for next year so such an issue wont reoccur. However we need to address the wider issues for all cycle-motorist interactions. Cyclists are usually aware and pull to the left in single file when needed, to make room for vehicles to pass. I agree that particular bunch were rude in this respect. And yes, they should’ve ridden 2 abreast and single file when cars are attempting to pass on narrow sections. After talking with the riders, they suggest that your alleged 4,5,6 abreast is an exaggeration, and I tend to agree, as it is physically impossible to fit that many riders abreast on that narrow lane. (One solution: A friendly and short “toot toot” as a driver comes up behind is a reminder for cyclists to ride to the left as you pass, but a long, rage-induced blast on the horn when adjacent to the riders’ naked ears is terrifying and downright dangerous, and of course too late to be of any use.) It must’ve been very alarming to be “forced into the other lane in order to avoid ramming up the back of the bunch”. But I must remind you that any road user is required to adjust their speed to match the conditions and to be able to stop in the distance visible to them. What if there had been a flock of sheep, a slow campervan or tractor? The Glenorchy road is not a motorway, it is a narrow, windy mountain road used by cyclists, farmers, tourists. Only a few years ago it was a gravel road! Cyclists ride the Glenorchy road as it is the least busy road in the entire area, and less danger to, and from motorists. Passing a cyclist is no different to passing any vehicle, one must wait until the road is clear to do so, indicate etc. Motorists are required to give at least a 1.5 metre berth. It is lethally dangerous to squeeze a cyclist into the gutter, ditch, a cliff or bank. Cyclists are a valid form of transport and user of the roads. The vast majority of cyclists also own a vehicle, sitting in the garage, that has road user tax paid. Cycles were plying roads well before any cars were invented, and will likely still ply the roads long after cars are redundant. May I suggest that you get used to them, as with rising fuel scarcity, you yourself may find yourself riding a bicycle! My probably laughed at suggestion is this. This town can make so much money from these clowns. Install even one camera on say Stanley and Gorge roundabout with license plate reading technology and charge thus: failure to signal on approach $5. Failure to signal on exit $5. Turning right and failing to signal and almost crashing into me you #*^*er $15. This could be a goldmine. Mungo Extra Charge For Takaway Containers Issue 482 If a dollar ruined your night out, you’re probably a bit too sensitive to go out in public Patron Take away food doesn’t succumb to inflated prices for plastic containers because the restaurant is saving on paying for someone to service you all night whilst you drone on about how important you are and how the prices of Queenstown restaurants has become expensive lately. Next thing we know you will complain when a restaurant charges you $4 corkage to open a bottle of wine that was yours in the first place. Blah Blah Blah Let us all be patient, thoughtful road users.

Ph 034423714 To be eligible for the work experience visa (WD1 Visa), it is important for there to be a ‘direct link’ between your job offer and your qualification. In their assessment of the application, Immigration New Zealand (INZ) will consider whether you will actually make use of your qualification in your role on a day to day basis. They will also look at the portion of time you spend on particular tasks i.e. how long you spend doing tasks related to your qualification. It is important for applicants of this visa to spend a significant part of their day undertaking tasks directly applicable to their qualification. They may also compare your job description to the subject areas of the qualification and consider whether the job can be done competently by someone without the qualification. This will provide an indication as to whether the qualification was a key factor in your employer’s decision to employ you. Another factor taken into consideration is wage rate. Wage rate in itself will not be determinative of relevance, however it is an indication of the level of skill and qualification required for the position. Recent experience suggests that INZ is becoming stricter with these types of applications. If you are facing issues with ‘relevance’ with your application, we suggest you seek professional advice as to your options. www.laneneave.co.nz 13 Camp Street, Queenstown Tel: 0800 802 800 Eml: [email protected] Web: liveinnewzealand.co.nz Disclaimer: The content of this article is general in nature and not intended as a substitute for specific professional advice on any matter and should not be relied upon for that purpose.
