Housing development notches up first sale
NEW KID: An artist's impression of a house in the new BeachGrove housing development in Kaiapoi.
By CATE BROUGHTON
THE FIRST house sale for Kaiapoi s
BeachGrove subdivision, on Beach
Rd, has gone to the couple who sold
the farmland site to the developers.
Marie and Dave Hancox have
loved Kaiapoi for the past 60 years
and have decided to downsize to a
house and land package at Bea-
There s a lot of history here for us.
We swore we d never buy a pack-
age like this, but the more we looked
at BeachGrove, the more we liked it,
Mrs Hancox said.
They say they feel pretty good
about one of the streets in the sub-
division being named after them.
BeachGrove chief executive Shane
Fairmaid said new shareholders took
over Ruby Views company in March
and decided to focus on a more
attainable product .
With packages starting at around
$339,000, ready to move into, we are
confident that many who felt they
couldn t afford a new home will now
be able to, he says.
The seven-stage, 500 home devel-
opment will offer fully completed
neighbourhoods ready to move in
to .This means new residents will not
have to share their street with buil-
ders, Mr Fairmaid said.
Roading contractor Benchmark
Civil Construction started on site
this week, and will be followed clo-
sely by home builders Mike Greer
Homes, with the first homes planned
for completion in February 2014.
Mr Fairmaid said there has been
significant interest in the house and
land packages, and he expects the
first stage to sell out before the end
of the year.
Providing more affordable pack-
ages had been a challenge.
It s been hard work and there s no
one solution that achieves
affordability. But by looking care-
fully at every aspect of the develop-
ment we ve achieved an outcome
that makes new home ownership
more attainable for buyers while
maintaining high-quality complete
homes, Mr Fairmaid said.
The approach meant 38 per cent of
the stage one BeachGrove homes
would sell for under $400,000.

GREETINGS: Master Carver Caine Tauwhare and Rangiora New Life School kapa
haka group member Solomon Tarawa exchange a hongi in recognition of the four
Maori weapons Mr Tauwhare presented to the school last week.
RANGIORA NEW Life School has
received a special gift -- which will
enrich the school s kapa haka group
and the school community as a
Master carver Caine Tuwhare
presented the students with two
taiaha -- traditionally used for spear-
ing enemies and warding off blows --
and two patu, which once served in
close hand-to-hand combat.
Kapa haka students Solomon
Tarawa, Year 9, and Daniel McGold-
rick, Year 11, accepted the precious
taonga -- or treasures -- on the
school s behalf.
Mr Tauwhare told the school the
taiaha and patu should be seen as
symbols of determination.
The waterway carved on the
taonga represents the school, he
said, which has a stream running
across its property.
Head of primary Ross Nicholson
said it was important that the school
incorporates Maori culture and
language into its curriculum in a
meaningful fashion, and that kapa
haka and Maori whanau leaders
Nick and Sherrin de Roo had played
a key part in this.
We aim to grow great Maori men
and women, with a deep spiritual
and emotional knowledge of what it
means to be Maori, he said. It is
important that our senior boys learn
the wero or challenge, and the taiaha
is an essential part of this action.
Maori language teacher and kapa
haka tutor Ange Pearson said the
taonga would help extend the boys of
the kapa haka team. She said the
group s aim was to build on current
waiata and haka skills, adding in poi
and these new gifts.
They are not only gifts -- they are
resources that will be well used
within the school, she said.
