4.3       Request for Removal of Tree in Tisch Place

             Ms Julie Brigg, resident, spoke to the Board regarding the request by residents of Tisch Place for the removal of a tree.

             The Shirley/Papanui Community Board noted Ms Brigg's concerns regarding the large elm tree located in the berm between Numbers 5 and 7 Tisch Place. The tree has grown over large for the available space and two branches had fallen in recent months, one of which blocked the road for five hours before being removed by the Council contractor. Ms Brigg advised that the residents were nervous about their safety and were afraid of further branches, or the tree itself, falling on people and properties.

             The Council Arborist was present to deliver a staff briefing on the situation. Refer Clause 7 of these minutes.

             The Chairperson thanked Ms Brigg for her deputation and accepted a petition containing 30 signatures from the residents of Tisch Place asking for the removal of the elm tree growing between 5 and 7 Tisch Place.

 

4.4       Courtenay Street/Papanui Parallel Cycle Way

             Ms Maggie Tarakana, supported by six other residents of Courtenay Street, spoke to the Board regarding the expected increase in traffic flow on Courtenay Street due to the installation of the Papanui Parallel Cycleway and the associated intersection upgrades.

The Shirley/Papanui Community Board noted the following concerns from the residents:

·         Courtenay Street designated as a "collector" road rather than a "local" road

·         The volume and speed of traffic using the road

·         The proposed upgrade (2009) to the existing "deep dish" channel and kerbing had not occurred.

·         The impact that the construction of the Papanui Parallel Cycle Way would have on traffic flows.

The residents requested that the proposed upgrading of the access to Courtenay Street be looked at holistically with regard to the Papanui Parallel Cycleway and upgrades of surrounding streets and intersections.

The Chairperson thanked Ms Tarakana and the residents for their deputation.

 

4.5       Access way from Hills Road to Onawe Place

             Mr Chauhan spoke to the Board regarding the repeated vandalism of his boundary fence with the access way from Hills Road to Onawe Place.

Community Board Decided SPCB/2016/00012

The Board noted both Mr Chauhan's request for  assistance to maintain the fence between his property and the alleyway, damaged by repeated vandalism, and the Council policy that gives responsibility for boundary fences with Council land to the adjoining landowner.

             The Board decided to request that the Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) team assess the alleyway access between Hills Road and Onawe Place and report back to the Board.

The Chairperson thanked Mr Chauhan for his deputation.
