Te Hapori o Ohinehou Raua ko ahu Patiki/Lyttelton Mt Herbert Community Board represents the communities around Lyttelton Harbour and Port Levy. The Board's statutory role is, “to represent, and act as an advocate for, the interests of its community” and "to prepare an annual submission to the territorial authority for expenditure within the community" (Local Government Act 2002, section 52). In this capacity the Board provides a submission on the Christchurch City Draft Annual Plan 2016/17 and Amended Long Term Plan 2015/25.

 

The Board appreciates the opportunity to provide this submission. However at the Council's request the Board provided many of the comments in the submission points below, as well as comprehensive comment on other matters, in December 2015. The Board did not receive proactive staff advice on these comments.

 

The Board's initial comment in December 2015 on preparation of the Draft Annual Plan 2016/17 is available at:

http://www.ccc.govt.nz/assets/Documents/The-Council/Community-Boards/LMHBoardInputonPreparationofDraftAnnualPlan.pdf

 

The Board supports all of the planned capital projects in the Lyttelton/Mt Herbert area proposed in the Draft Annual Plan and Amended Long Term Plan (refer Attachment 1), with any amendments outlined in the submission points below and except for Capital Project ID 18100 - Purau Foreshore and Reserves Project.

 

The Lyttelton/Mt Herbert Community Board Plan, referenced in the submission points below, is available at:

http://www.ccc.govt.nz/assets/Documents/The-Council/Community-Boards/LMHCommunityBoardPlan2015-12.pdf

 

Yours sincerely

 

 

Paula Smith

Chairperson, Te Hapori o Ōhinehou raua ko Ahu Pātiki/Lyttelton Mt Herbert Community Board


 

1

Capital Project ID 18100 - Purau Foreshore and Reserves Project

The Board opposes funding for Capital Project ID 18100 as the community and Board's priority is reclassification of the Purau Foreshore as reserve, which is not a capital project.

 

The Board seeks that the Amended Long Term Plan be amended to reallocate all funding for Capital Project ID 18100 to a new capital project to progress the Stoddart Point Reserves and Coastal Cliff Reserves Network Management Plan in partnership with the Diamond Harbour Reserves Management Committee.

 

2

Capital Project ID 408 - Head to Head Walkway

The Head to Head Walkway is a longstanding community aspiration with social and economic benefits for the Lyttelton/Mt Herbert and wider area. The Board fully supports this project, which is one of its priorities in its Community Board Plan. It would be a lost opportunity to lose momentum by delaying this project as proposed in the Amended Long Term Plan.

 

The Long Term Plan allocated $334,000 in FY2016/17 for track construction, consultation and design, and additional funding in subsequent years.

 

The Amended Long Term Plan proposes the following: Allocate $50,000 for consultation and design in the capital works programme for FY2016/17. Phase the funding for the project over subsequent years as follows: 2018 = $326,000; 2019 = $22,000; 2020 = $348,000; 2021 = $22,000; 2022 = $326,000, understanding funding will be brought forward if project delivery is technically possible.

 

The Board supports $50,000 allocated for consultation and design in FY2016/17, and supports completion in FY2016/17 of any unfinished work budgeted for FY2015/16.

 

The Board also seeks that the Amended Long Term Plan be amended to re-instate part of the original FY2016/17 budget for track construction, with the expectation that geotechnical work at Black Point will be completed which will enable construction.

Capital Project ID 357 - Lyttelton Marina Environs (Naval Point) Development

Metropolitan recreational assets at Naval Point (Lyttelton Marina Environs) have been neglected by successive Councils since the majority of the marina was destroyed by a storm in 2000. Community frustration is reflected in the submission on the Draft Annual Plan and Amended Long Term Plan by the Boat Security and Safety Association, who are keen to see progress on the ground. The Association proposes that capital funding be allocated for installation of a pontoon on the public slipway at Naval Point to increase boat safety.

 

The Board fully supports Capital Project ID 357, as supporting development of Naval Point is one of the Board's top priorities in its Community Board Plan. The Naval Point Development Plan, funded by this project and currently underway, has as one of its objectives improving boat safety, which is also one of the Board's top priorities. If improving boat safety is one of the priority capital works identified by the Naval Point Development Plan following comprehensive consultation, the Board supports funding to implement these improvements.

 

The Long Term Plan allocated $409,000 in FY2016/17 and $419,000 in FY2017/18 for Capital Project ID 357 - Lyttelton Marina Environs (Naval Point) Development. The Amended Long Term Plan proposes that the project be delayed by one year, with $0 in FY2016/17, $418,000 in FY2017/18 and $343,000 in FY2018/19.

 

The Board has been advised that the Naval Point Development project is expected to fully utilise the original FY2016/17 budget, as any decisions around pending issues such as the location of a cruise ship berth in Lyttelton would likely influence design, staging and use of Naval Point rather than delay the project.

 

To enable timely development of a valuable community recreational asset, the Board seeks that the Amended Long Term Plan be amended, with original funding of $409,000 in FY2016/17 and $419,000 in FY2017/18 reinstated.

Reserve Management Committees

There are five Reserve Management Committees (RMC), which are subcommittees of the Board, in the Lyttelton/Mt Herbert area: Lyttelton RMC, Lyttelton Recreation Ground RMC, Cass Bay RMC, Allandale RMC and Diamond Harbour RMC. One of the Board's top priorities in its Community Board Plan is to continue to support Reserve Management Committees, and identify new opportunities for more community management.

 

As the Council does not allocate funding directly to RMCs and the Parks Unit budget has decreased in recent years, RMCs have difficulty carrying out their work and levels of service have decreased.

 

The Board seeks that the Amended Long Term Plan include a new line item allocating $1,500 in each financial year to each of the five Reserve Management Committees listed above.

Lyttelton Reserves Management Committee (RMC)

 

One of the priorities of the Lyttelton RMC is that a new access way from Reserve Terrace to Foster Terrace at Urumau Reserve in Lyttelton be completed. Stage 1 of this project is scheduled to be completed by the end of FY2015/16.

 

The Board seeks that funding for Stage 2 of this project be allocated from the FY2016/17 budget of Capital Project ID 2228 - Banks Peninsula Track Renewals, and that this project be completed by the end of FY2016/17.

 

Lyttelton Recreation Ground Reserve Management Committee (RMC)

 

The Lyttelton Recreation Ground RMC made a separate submission on the Draft Annual Plan and Amended Long Term Plan, which the Board supports.

 

In its submission, the Lyttelton Recreation Ground RMC requests funding for the Lyttelton Recreation Ground Pavilion project. Earthquake repairs to the pavilion are proceeding. However the project plan predates the earthquakes and includes improved kitchen facilities and showers, which would make the facility more versatile for groups such as the Sea Scout Jamborees.

 

The Board seeks that the Amended Long Term Plan be amended to include capital funding for the Lyttelton Recreation Ground Pavilion project, as one of the Board's top priorities in its Community Board Plan is that facilities for community activities, including recreation and sport, are repaired, rebuilt, maintained and well-used by all residents.

 

Cass Bay Reserves Management Committee (RMC)

 

The Cass Bay RMC's submission on the Draft Annual Plan and Amended Long Term Plan is attached (Attachment 2), which the Board supports. Please refer to 4.2 for requests for capital funding.

 

Under 4.1.2, the Cass Bay RMC requests that the history of the Pony Point carving be investigated, and any interpretation information be determined. The Board has requested that staff organise a site visit to discuss this matter.

4.5

Allandale Reserve Management Committee (RMC)

 

At its meeting on 12 May 2016, the Council will consider a report regarding the Allandale transport yard site. The Board has recommended that, providing the lease of the site with Fulton Hogan proceeds, the Council assign a proportion of the rent to the Allandale Reserve Management Committee to support development and maintenance of Allandale Domain.

 

Diamond Harbour Reserves Management Committee (RMC)

 

The Diamond Harbour RMC's submission on the Draft Annual Plan and Amended Long Term Plan is attached (Attachment 3), which the Board supports.

 

The Board notes that levels of service have decreased for cliff track maintenance and pest plant eradication in Diamond Harbour reserves. The Board seeks that the Amended Long Term Plan allocate additional funding to the Parks Unit operational budget to reinstate historical levels of service, as one of the Board's top priorities in its Community Board Plan is supporting re-vegetation initiatives in the Lyttelton/Mt Herbert area.

 

5

Draft Financial Strategy - Capital Release

The Amended Long Term Plan - Draft Financial Strategy proposes releasing $600 million of the investment portfolio held by Christchurch City Holdings Limited (CCHL), with $200 million released in FY2015/16 and the remaining $400 million in FY2017/18 and FY2018/19.

 

For the remaining $400 million, the Board would prefer that the Council explore options for capital release other than asset sales. The Board supports retention of 100% of the Council's strategic assets, namely Lyttelton Port Company, Orion and Christchurch International Airport Limited.

 

6

Capital Project ID 3355 - Former Council (Donald Street) Stables

The Amended Long Term Plan proposes that the Former Council (Donald Street) Stables in Lyttelton be allocated $815,000 in FY2020/21. The Board was advised one of the reasons the project has been deferred is that no use has been determined for the Stables. However following public consultation the Lyttelton Master Plan identified the Stables as part of the Donald Street arts precinct (Attachment 4).

 

One of the Council's priorities for the capital programme is to repair or rebuild facilities in the communities most affected by earthquakes, while one of the Board's top priorities in its Community Board Plan is that facilities for community activities, including recreation and sport, are repaired, rebuilt, maintained and well-used by all residents. The Board seeks that the Amended Long Term Plan be amended to allocate $815,000 in FY2016/17 and FY2017/18 to the Former Council (Donald Street) Stables.

7

New Capital Project - Norman Kirk Memorial Pool

One of the Board's top priorities in its Community Board Plan is that facilities for community activities, including recreation and sport, are repaired, rebuilt, maintained and well-used by all residents.

 

The Board supports the submission on the Draft Annual Plan and Amended Long Term Plan by Richard Homer on behalf of Lyttelton Harbour Timebank and residents of Lyttelton. This submission proposes that a new capital project be included in the Annual Plan 2016/17 to investigate key access to Norman Kirk Memorial Pool in Lyttelton, which would extend the opening season and hours.

 

8

Fees and Charges - Norman Kirk Memorial Pool

While the Board is comfortable with the small increase in fees for individuals and small families for the Norman Kirk Memorial Pool in Lyttelton proposed in the Draft Annual Plan, the Board seeks that the Draft Annual Plan be amended to cap fees at $20 per visit to reduce fees for larger families.

 

9

New Capital Project - Roly Poly Reserve Play Equipment

One of the Board's top priorities in its Community Board Plan is that facilities for community activities, including recreation and sport, are repaired, rebuilt, maintained and well-used by all residents.

With Lyttelton West School recently closed and the future use of this site uncertain, there is no play equipment in Lyttelton West. The Board seeks that the Amended Long Term Plan be amended to include a new capital project for new play equipment on the reserve known as Roly Poly Reserve on the corner of Harmans and Voelas Roads in Lyttelton.
