Developed over several years, the Maymorn Structure Plan envisages the existing rural area transformed during the next 10 to 20 years with a sustainable village community'' of 1800 houses, 4000 residents, shops and a school. Formal consultation on the plan (for the north-eastern corner of the Mangaroa Valley bound by the river and surrounding hillside) will begin this month. The public response through submissions and hearings will be carried out next month. The Upper Hutt Rural Residents' Association believes the long-term proposal is over-reaching and inappropriate for the area. The association recently surveyed its members before making a brief submission to the city council's annual plan hearing and before detail of the Maymorn Structure Plan was made public. The association recognises the Maymorn development is a district plan discussion issue but did indi- cate its concerns in the annual plan submissions,'' chairwoman Noeline Berkett says. Put simply, our members are saying no' to the devel- opment proposal for Maymorn. There's a strong feeling in the rural community against urbanisation. Some feel that it will create a slum area [by] being distant from services and transport. Others feel that our existing rural land must be valued for what it is and that any urban development' should only take place in areas already accepted as urban. It seems clear to me our members don't want this sort of massive development and it seems that the council have not heard us and are continuing to push on with the idea,'' Mrs Berkett says.

Photo: ROSEMARY McLENNAN Schoolkids take to testing chocolate By ROSEMARY McLENNAN Experiments with chocolate have proven popular with pupils at Trentham School and all in the name of science. Which brand tastes the best and what temperature does it melt and break the easiest were tested by groups of middle school pupils. Groups of seniors did various experiments with sound, electri- cal current, colour and insula- tion while the juniors did experi- ments as whole classes. Senior pupils, with help from teachers, put the work of the school's 350 pupils on public dis- play in the hall last Wednesday. One group's experiment was to learn which type of insulating materials kept a person warm- est for the longest. Dacron came out the winner over wool, cotton and polar fleece. Renata Kotuhi, Arvin Evan- gelista, Holly Williams and Kiana Staunton from room 10 used eight blindfolded class- mates to test which chocolate tasted the nicest among Cad- bury's, Whittaker's and Tres Bon. They felt Cadbury's would be the nicest and Whittaker's -- with the lowest amount of sugar -- would be the least liked. Tres Bon had 57.7 grams of sugar, Cadbury's 56.2 and Whittaker's just 44.7. But Cadbury's won with 63 per cent of the vote for most liked. Whittaker's was second with 25 per cent and Tres Bon last with 12 per cent. Tres Bon was named the worst by 50 per cent of the tas- ters, followed by Whittaker's (37 per cent) and Cadbury's (13 per cent). Their teacher, Kate Ilsley, said they thought the amount of sugar would determine popu- larity. Holly said science was her favourite subject and she hoped to study it more. Arvin and Kiana are also keen on science but Renata, who does enjoy the subject, is keener on a career involving rugby.
