1.   Purpose of Report

1.1      A video clip received from 5 year old Ashton Mitchell asking for reinstatement of the flying fox at Muka Park will be played at the Board meeting.  The report at Item 8 refers.

1.2      An Evaluation Report – Evaluation of the AWA Trails Project with schools in Eastern Christchurch has been separately circulated to Board members.  This report was prepared by the Canterbury District Health Board’s Community and Public Health (CPH) Information Team.

The AWA Trails project involved four schools (three primary and one intermediate) and was facilitated by two health promoters from CPH.  It drew on current health promotion campaigns on wellbeing: the ‘five ways to wellbeing’ and the All Right? Social marketing campaign; as well as the concept of ‘guerilla wayfinding’.  The overall aim of the project was to connect people living in the Aranui/Wainoni/Avondale area with local people and places from the past, present and future.  The project aimed to encourage schools to create walking trails in their local communities to inspire students and families to walk more and to potentially increase their wellbeing as well as connecting them with their communities.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1      The purpose of this report is for the Burwood/Pegasus Community Board to approve staff to undertake consultation with the residents in the Prestons North subdivision on whether or not the flying fox should remain in Muka Park playground.

Origin of Report

1.2      This report is staff generated for the Burwood/Pegasus Community Board after complaints were received from residents of Prestons North subdivision who were advised the flying fox was to be removed due to breaches of the City Plan noise standards.

1.3      Since the first complaints were received advising the flying fox was to be removed due to noise, there have been a substantial number of residents asking for the flying fox to be retained.

2.   Significance

2.1      The decision(s) in this report is of low significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

5.   Background

Muka Park

5.1      The Muka Park and playground were planned as part of a green corridor concept in a subdivision Outline Development Plan (ODP) proposed by Ngai Tahu Property Limited, pre-2010 Christchurch earthquakes.

5.2      The playground in Muka Park was designed as the centre piece or showcase, for the Prestons North subdivision. It is centrally located in the subdivision with a smaller playground to the north and another smaller one to the south. The Muka Park playground has a range of activities including the flying fox, half-court and skate path plus more standard play equipment such as a slide.

5.3      Muka Park, within Prestons subdivision has its own zoning within the current City Plan, called Living G (Prestons) Zone. None of the parks in the Prestons development have an Open Space Zone in the City Plan. There are no rules in the current City Plan relating to the distance or setback play equipment should be in the Living G (Prestons) Zone. The City Plan does recommend for Open Space Zones a 10 metre setback for buildings and play equipment. An earth mound planted with trees within the Muka Park playground is at the closest point of 20 metres to the nearest residential property. The zoning in the proposed District Plan does not include any rules for distances of playgrounds from residential boundaries.

5.4      The flying fox in Muka Park was opened to the public on the 6th January 2016, under the control of Ngai Tahu Property Limited. The playground was handed over to Council as a Council asset in June 2016.

Noise Complaints – Flying Fox

5.5      On 15 February 2016 the Council’s Environmental Health Officer received a complaint from a resident about the noise generated by the flying fox. The Environmental Health officer went out to Muka Park and measured the noise from the flying fox at 7.10 pm – 8.10 pm. The flying fox was in breach of the acceptable noise limits (refer Attachment A). Ngai Tahu Property Limited were notified of the breach of the City Plan.

5.6      On 22 February 2016 a second noise complaint was received by the Council’s Environmental Health Officer about the noise generated by the flying fox, from a resident. The Environmental Health officer measured the noise levels at 2.30 pm – 3.00 pm. The flying fox was in breach of the acceptable noise limits (refer Attachment B). Ngai Tahu Property Limited were notified of the breach of the City Plan.

5.7      The Council’s Environmental Health Officer has not received any complaints about the noise from children playing in the playground.

5.8      The cable and pulley mechanism from the flying fox were removed as a result of the noise complaints, which disabled the flying fox. A different type of pulley mechanism on the flying fox was trialled at Muka Park, but the noise generated by the mechanism exceeded the noise limits from the previous model. The pulley and cable were removed. After further investigations into types of cable and pulley mechanisms it was decided in conjunction with Ngai Tahu Properties Limited, who were still managing the playground as part of the subdivision development, that the flying fox poles would be removed. The mound supporting the southern pole of the flying fox would be reduced in height and planted.

5.9      Council staff were contacted by the residents who had complained about the noise generated by the flying fox. A site meeting was held with the residents at the beginning of May 2016 where staff agreed after consulting with Ngai Tahu Property Limited to put out an information flyer. The flyer advised residents that the flying fox had breached the City Plan noise standards, a different pulley system had been tried but still failed the noise standards. Therefore the flying fox would be removed and the mound supporting the flying fox post would be reduced in height and planted. A separate mound to the east of the flying fox mound was also to be extended to the west and planted. The residents had complained that children were standing on the flying fox mound and looking into their house windows. By reducing the height of the flying fox mound, extending the mound to the east and planting both in shrubs it was anticipated this would reduce the possibility of children looking into the residents’ windows.

5.10    On 24 May 2016 an Information leaflet produced by the Council was delivered to the residents of Prestons North (refer Attachment C). The leaflet advised that the flying fox had breached the City Plan noise limits and attempts to reduce the noise had been unsuccessful. The flying fox was therefore going to be removed and the area re-landscaped.

5.11    Since the information leaflet was delivered to the residents there has been over a dozen phone calls and emails to Council from residents complaining about the removal of the flying fox. Plus numerous comments on the Preston residents Facebook and a petition has been circulating the residents. All of the comments, messages and petition are against the removal of the flying fox.

Ownership of Muka Park Playground

5.12    The Muka Park playground was designed and constructed under the Resource Consent process for the subdivision by Ngai Tahu Property Limited with the approval of Council. Muka Park is located within a sub-stage of Stage 2 of the subdivision development. The timing of construction within the Stages and sub-stages of a subdivision is managed by the developer, Ngai Tahu Property Limited. The development of Muka Park including the playground was not started until the last sub-stage in Stage 2, although the planning and approval process for the park and playground had commenced during the early stages of the development.

5.13    A consequence of the late construction start of the playground in comparison to other sub-stages was that some of the residential properties in the adjoining sub-stage may have already been sold and possibly construction of houses commenced.

5.14    Until recently the playground in Muka Park was the responsibility of Ngai Tahu Property Limited, as part of the subdivision development. When the noise from the flying fox continued to breach the City Plan noise standards the intention of staff was to work with Ngai Tahu Property Limited to remove the flying fox and re-landscape the mound as discussed with the residents who we had met with and wanted the flying fox removed. It became apparent however, from the increasing number of residents opposed to the removal of the flying fox that the decision of whether the flying fox should be retained or removed should be a Community Board decision rather than a Council staff decision. The Community Board represents the community, which is the appropriate way to resolve this community issue. The flying fox and Muka Park playground has recently been handed over to Council and is now a Council landscape asset and is within the delegations of the Community Board for any landscape changes to a Council park.

Alternative Locations for Flying Fox within Prestons Subdivision

5.15    If the noise levels generated by the flying fox in Muka Park cannot be reduced through using a different cable and pulley mechanism staff have been looking at other parks within the Prestons subdivision to relocate the flying fox. There are no other suitable locations within the parks where there would be sufficient distance between residential properties and the flying fox.

5.16    If the Muka Park flying fox was to be removed it would be put in storage until a suitable location was available.

 


 

6.   Option 1 – Retain Flying Fox with Quieter Cable and Pulley Mechanism

Option Description

6.1      To trial a different cable and pulley mechanism that will potentially comply with the City Plan noise standards. If the flying fox complies with the City Plan noise standards it is to be retained in its current location in Muka Park.

6.2      There is a possibility that the new cable and pulley mechanism could comply with the City Plan noise standards during the day-time use but not comply in the evenings. The noise standards levels are lower during the evenings than during the day-time. If the flying fox is non-compliant during the evening the pulley system may need to be disabled, for example by some means of locking up the pulley each evening. This would need further investigation, should the need arise, as to how this could be achieved and who locked the pulley system, e.g. through the use of a neighbour or volunteer person/group?

Significance

6.3      The level of significance of this option is low consistent with section 2 of this report.  Engagement requirements for this level of significance are appropriate.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.4      This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions. Ngai Tahu Property Limited have been consulted throughout this process.

Community Views and Preferences

6.5      This report is requesting the Community Board to agree to consult with the community. The consultation will be undertaken by Council staff which will include an information leaflet with a feedback form, information on the Council website and ‘Have Your Say’. The community comments will be collated and presented to the Community Board meeting in September 2016.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

6.6      This option is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies

Financial Implications

6.7      Cost of Implementation – the outcome of the Community Board decision as to whether the flying fox should be retained with a different, quieter cable and pulley mechanism, or whether the flying fox should be removed and the area re-landscaped will be covered by the funds still owing through the subdivision process for the development of the reserves.

6.8      Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – The maintenance of the playground has been taken into consideration as part of the subdivision development for the first 12 months than the playground will be included in the Parks maintenance operation budgets.

6.9      Funding source – is through the funding owing from the subdivision process for the development of the reserves.

Legal Implications

6.10    It is illegal to operate the flying fox if it breaches the City Plan noise standards. The flying fox in the Muka Park playground is compliant with the Resource Consent for the subdivision and the City Plan.

Risks and Mitigations

6.11    There is a risk there will be some residents in the Prestons North subdivision that do not agree with the Community Board decision, after consultation has been completed. There are two groups of residents who have opposing views on whether the flying fox should be retained or removed and it is not possible to apes both groups.

Implementation

6.12    Implementation dependencies – it is unknown at the time of writing this report if the proposed cable and pulley mechanism will be within the City Plan noise limits due to both items being imported and not currently in New Zealand.

6.13    Implementation timeframe – the proposed flying fox cable and pulley system are to be trialled in September 2016.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.14    The advantages of this option include:

·   This option will please some of the residents who want to retain the flying fox.

6.15    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   This option will not please the residents who want the flying fox removed.

7.   Option 2 – Remove the Flying Fox and Replace with a different Play Equipment

Option Description

7.1      To totally remove the flying fox and reduce the southern earth mound that supports one of the flying foxes posts. To re-landscape the area occupied by the flying fox and install a different type of play equipment whose mechanism won’t breach the City Plan noise limits.

7.2      This option will also include extending the planted mound that is separate to the flying fox, to the east of the playground. This mound is to be extended towards the playground and planted to provide privacy to the adjoining residents.

Significance

7.3      The level of significance of this option is low consistent with section 2 of this report.  Engagement requirements for this level of significance are appropriate.

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.4      This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.

Community Views and Preferences

There are two groups of residents who have opposing views on whether the flying fox should be retained or removed and it is not possible to apes both groups

Implementation

7.12    Implementation dependencies - There are no implementation dependencies to remove the flying fox if that is the Community Board decision. A contractor will be engaged to undertake the work who will follow all the required Council processes and Statutes.

7.13    Implementation timeframe – One to two months once the Community Board has confirmed their decision.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.14    The advantages of this option include:

·   This option will please some of the residents who want the flying fox removed.

4.   Key Points

4.1      This report supports the Council's Long Term Plan (2015 - 2025):

4.1.1   Activity: Road Operations

·      Level of Service: 10.0.31 Protect vulnerable users - minimise the number of fatal crashes involving pedestrians and cyclists

4.2      The following feasible options have been considered:

·      Option 1 - Install cycle lanes, two pedestrian refuge islands, no stopping restrictions and a new footpath on Mairehau Road and install a give way control on Chartwell Street at its intersection with Mairehau Road. (preferred option)

·      Option 2 - Do nothing.

4.3      Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·      Reduces the risk of a crash by providing a dedicated lane for cyclists;

·      Highlights the presence of cyclists to motorists by providing cycle lanes and green surfacing;

·      Encourages cycling by providing specific cycle facilities;

·      Improves safety for pedestrians crossing Mairehau Road by providing crossing facilities;

·      The pedestrian refuge islands give pedestrians a safe place to wait when crossing the road in two stages;

·      Encourages motorists to drive slower on Mairehau Road by narrowing of traffic lanes through marking of cycle lanes;

·      Provides a footpath and new entrance to the Travis Wetland.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·      Removes 16 parking along Mairehau Road, outside three residential properties and the hospital, to enable the installation of the pedestrian crossing facilities and cycle lanes;

·      Removes an additional 31 non-compliant parking spaces along Mairehau Road outside the Travis Wetland to enable the installation of the pedestrian crossing facility and cycle lanes.  These are considered unsuitable for parking as they are below the minimum width for vehicle parking. In this area vehicles at times straddle the road and verge, there will still be areas where vehicles may park clear of the road on the verge, however the indication will be to motorists not to park in this area. It has been observed that there is low demand for parking in this area;

·      Removal of eight trees in the road reserve and seven trees within Travis Wetland boundary trees. Some vegetation will also need to be removed. Remediation planting will follow construction which will seek to replace trees and vegetation where possible.

 

 

5.   Context/Background

Background

5.1      Mairehau Road is a minor arterial road that has a mixture of flush median and centre line markings. There are currently no cycle lanes on this section of Mairehau Road and no pedestrian crossing facilities east of the intersection with Chartwell Street.

5.2      The section of Mairehau Road outside of Burwood Hospital has a very wide carriageway (approximately 20 metres kerb to kerb). The wide traffic lanes result in high operating speeds.

5.3      There is room in the wide traffic lanes for motor vehicles to comfortably overtake cyclists, however, some eastbound cyclists may travel close to the angle parking outside the Burwood Hospital where they are at risk of being hit by reversing vehicles. This proposal connects in to existing cycle lanes on Burwood Road north of the intersection with Mairehau Road.

5.4      Pedestrian refuge islands have been identified as an appropriate crossing facility on Mairehau Road. Pedestrians have difficulty crossing the road due to the width and the high traffic volume. This creates a poor level of service for those wishing to cross Mairehau Road.

5.5      There is a worn track in the grass verge outside 296 Mairehau Road and continuing along to the existing pedestrian entrance to the Travis Wetland which indicates a pedestrian desire line.

5.6      The Travis Wetland walking track is wheelchair accessible and has been identified as a therapeutic area for wheelchair users.

Proposal

5.7      The cycle lanes can be accommodated within the existing carriageway width with the loss of 16 parking spaces between Burwood Road and the proposed new boardwalk. An additional 31 parking spaces will be lost adjacent to the Travis Wetland and however these are currently considered unsuitable for parking as they are below the minimum recommended width for vehicle parking. It has been observed that there is low demand for parking in this area.

5.8      The cycle lanes are proposed to be 1.8 metres wide with the traffic lanes at 3.7 metres.

5.9      It is proposed to install green surfacing across each intersection. This will highlight the presence of cyclists to motorists entering Mairehau Road from the side roads and Burwood Hospital entrances.

5.10    It is proposed to install two new pedestrian refuge islands and no stopping restrictions, near the existing pedestrian entrance to the Travis Wetland and near the Sanctuary Villas Retirement Village access, as shown in Attachment A.

5.11    A new footpath is proposed to be installed outside 296 Mairehau Road linking in to the Travis Wetland through a boardwalk. This footpath is to be of an accessible grade to allow wheelchair users to access the wheelchair accessible Travis Wetland walking track. Signage will be installed to advise users of the no dogs and no bicycles rules of the Travis Wetland.

5.12    Removal seven trees within Travis Wetland boundary trees would be required to accommodate the new footpath and boardwalk. Some vegetation will also need to be removed. Remediation planting will follow construction which will seek to replace trees and vegetation where possible.

5.13    Removal of eight trees in the road reserve would be required for the installation of the cycle lane on the south side of Mairehau Road to ensure sight lines and so vegetation is not overhanging the cycle lane.

 

 

 


 

6.   Option 1 - Install cycle lanes, two pedestrian refuge islands, no stopping restrictions, a give way control and a new footpath on Mairehau Road (preferred)

Option Description

6.1      To install cycle lanes, two new pedestrian refuge islands, no stopping restrictions, bus stop markings, a give way control on Chartwell Street at its intersection with Mairehau Road. To approve tree removal to allow for a new footpath and the installation of a boardwalk in Travis Wetland Park.

Significance

6.2      The level of significance of this option is low and is consistent with section 2 of this report.  Engagement requirements for this level of significance are consistent with the consultation carried out.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.3      This option does involve a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does specifically impact Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.  As such, pre-consultation was carried out with affiliated groups to ensure they are involved in the process. They indicated that they had no concerns with the project. Consultation will continue with affiliated groups throughout the project.

Community Views and Preferences

6.4      Community engagement on the Proposed Mairehau Road safety improvements and new footpath was undertaken from Friday 15 April to Friday 29 April 2016. A total of 215 leaflets were hand delivered to residents and businesses between numbers from 206 to 400 Mairehau Road the leaflet was also sent to 117 stakeholders.

6.5      30 responses were received. 20 were from residents who reside in the immediate area. The remainder being made up of:

·   Representatives from organisations (2);

·   Property owners who live outside the area (6);

·   Hospital employees (2).

Of those who live immediately adjacent to the works only one submissions opposed the development. The rest generally approved with several offering suggestions.

6.6      Of those who responded there were 25 who generally agreed with the proposal, 4 who did not indicate their preference and 1 against.

6.7      Two submissions supported the proposal but suggested upgrades to the road as some areas have become somewhat substandard.

6.8      Four Submitters supported the proposal but offered additional features to improve safety. This included zebra crossings, traffic lights at the roundabout, additional 50k signs, extending the project and additional signage/painting for the cycle path. One submitter supported the proposal but wanted to ensure that the wetland entrance does not have a gradient that makes wheelchair use difficult.

6.9      The project team response is as follows; the areas where the road is substandard have been referred to the appropriate team who will action these problems. The additional road features were investigated however pedestrian traffic is not high enough to justify inclusion of these features. There will be continued monitoring however, to see if this changes in the future. As this projects key concern is accessibility for disabled users, the entrance will be made fully wheelchair accessible by making sure the gradient is easily navigated by wheelchair users and carers. Parking loss was deemed necessary to ensure the safety improvements were made. In addition to this, the hospital upgrade includes an additional 600 car parks which should result in reduced demand for on street parks. As for the zebra crossing, the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) set criteria for the installation of zebra crossings. This location currently does not meet this criteria. Therefore the proposed pedestrian refuge island is the most appropriate solution for this location at this time.

6.10    One Submitter supported the proposal but suggested additional 50km/hr signs to reinforce the speed limit, relocation of the pedestrian island to assist with traffic flows and that parks be removed to help line of sight from the hospital entrance.

6.11    The project team response is as follows; reminder 50km/hr signs won't be considered as part of this project. Only speed change points are signed to reduce visual clutter, as per NZTA policy. Relocation or realignment options for the existing island are limited due to the bus stop locations. The issue of cars blocking vision will be monitored to check that it is not a problem after the parking demands are reduced by the new hospital car parks

6.12    One submission did not indicate support or non-support but instead offered changes aimed at benefitting disabled users. This included additional handrails on the pedestrian islands around the roundabout, problems relating to the existing footpath width outside the hospital, lack of a bus shelter, and pedestrian refuge island not being sufficient size for wheelchair users. There was also reference to several road maintenance issues including a lack of tar seal in front of bus stop on the south side of the road and on the footpath

6.13    The project team response is as follows; Traffic modelling has been undertaken for the roundabout at Burwood Road/Mairehau Road. An intersection upgrade will be investigated in the future once traffic patterns have settled after the hospital upgrade. The existing footpath width is between 1.7-2.0m which above the minimum 1.5m footpath requirement.  Wheel stops would not be considered as the angle parked vehicles would be pushed closer to the adjacent cycle lane causing a safety issue. The footpath has been put in to the prioritisation database for future investigation into widening. Any widening of the path adjacent to the angle parking is outside the scope for this project. The new pedestrian refuge islands will have two handrails and the existing island will be upgraded to include two handrails. Due to site limitations we are not able to alter the width of the route through the existing pedestrian refuge island. The white line at gate two of the hospital will be remarked as part of this project which will make clearer for pedestrians to cross this entrance. The request to install a bus shelter near gate 3 has been referred to the Passenger Transport team. The 2015 weekday patronage was 0.4 passenger boardings per day at this stop. At this stage we are not looking to install a shelter here and it is outside the scope of this project. The installation of a pedestrian refuge islands with the wider crossing opening will be investigated as part of detailed design. General maintenance issues have been referred to the appropriate team who will action these.

6.14    One submission did not directly indicate preference but felt that the proposed changes would negatively impact on safety and provide no meaningful improvements. This included both the cycleway and pedestrian refuge islands.

6.15    The project team response to this is as follows; In reference to the cycleway, marking the cycle lane will guide vehicles to travel closer to the central flush median and allow cyclists to travel further away from the angled car parks. This provides a buffer between cyclists and reversing vehicles. The road width will remain the same, it is being marked so that the vehicle lane appears narrower. This narrowing encourages lower vehicle speeds. Green surfacing is proposed to be installed at the intersections and hospital gates to highlight the cycle lanes. The NZTA has found that pedestrian refuge islands can improve safety with an estimated pedestrian crash reduction of 18 percent. Any street lighting that is below the required standards will be upgraded which will make sure that the pedestrian refuge islands are visible to drivers.

6.16    There were two submitters who live in the area that felt that the loss of parking would be an issue. Of those who had issues with parking, one was directly affected with parks lost directly outside of the submitter’s property, and one was indirectly affected as the submitter lived just outside of the area affected by the proposed project and subsequent parking loss.

6.17    The project team response to this is as follows; the eventual parking arrangements on the Burwood Hospital site take into account all the anticipated volumes of extra traffic. It is a condition of the resource consent for the hospital that the upgrade project provides enough on-site parking. This should help with lowering the demand for on street car parks, many of which are currently occupied by contractor vehicles. While loss of parking is unfortunate it is essential to ensure that the safety measures can be put in place.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

6.18    This option is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies.

Financial Implications

6.19    Cost of Implementation - around $299,000

6.20    Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - covered under the area maintenance contract and the effect will be minimal to the overall asset.

6.21    Funding source - New Footpaths and Minor Safety Projects capital expenditure budgets.

Legal Implications

6.22    Part 1, Clause 5 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2008 provides the Council with the authority to install parking restrictions by resolution.

6.23    Community Boards have delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations. The list of delegations for the Community Boards includes the resolution of parking restrictions, tree removal, traffic control devices, traffic islands and pedestrian crossings.

6.24    The installation of any signs and/or markings associated with traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

Risks and Mitigations

6.25    Obtaining a resource consent for installation of the footpath in the Travis Wetland. This will be lodged once Community Board approval has been received. It is expected that this will be a non-notified resource consent.

Implementation

6.26    Implementation dependencies - Approval by Community Board and Council. Obtaining resource consent for the footpath and boardwalk in Travis Wetland.

6.27    Implementation timeframe - construction to be completed by the end of the calendar year.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.28    The advantages of this option include:

·   Reduces the risk of a crash by providing a dedicated lane for cyclists;

·   Highlights the presence of cyclists to motorists by providing cycle lanes and green surfacing;

·   Encourages cycling by providing specific cycle facilities;

·   Improves safety for pedestrians crossing Mairehau Road by providing a crossing facility;

·   The pedestrian refuge islands give pedestrians a safe place to wait when crossing the road in two stages;

·   Encourages motorists to drive slower on Mairehau Road;

·   Provides a footpath and new entrance to the Travis Wetland.

6.29    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Removes parking along Mairehau Road outside some residential properties;

·   Removal of eight trees in the road reserve and seven trees within Travis Wetland boundary trees. Some vegetation will also need to be removed. Remediation planting will follow construction which will seek to replace trees and vegetation where possible.

7.   Option 2 - Do nothing

Option Description

7.1      Mairehau Road will remain as it is.

Significance

7.2      The level of significance of this option is low and is consistent with section 2 of this report.  Engagement requirements for this level of significance are consistent with the consultation carried out.

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.3      This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.

Community Views and Preferences

7.4      This option does not align with the majority of community views with only two of the 31 submissions not supporting the proposal.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.5      This option is inconsistent with Council’s Plans and Policies as it does not address cyclist and pedestrian safety issues.

Financial Implications

7.6      Cost of Implementation – not applicable

7.7      Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - not applicable

7.8      Funding source - New Footpaths and Minor Safety Projects capital expenditure budgets for investigations works carried out to date.

Risks and Mitigations

7.10    Not applicable.  

Implementation

7.11    Implementation dependencies - not applicable.

7.12    Implementation timeframe - not applicable.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.13    The advantages of this option include:

·   Parking is retained along this section of Mairehau Road.

·   No trees or vegetation is removed.

7.14    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   It does not address the safety issue for cyclists, particularly behind the angle parking areas.

·    1 x School category

The winning Tiny Huts will be placed within the New Brighton business and public areas for four months over the 2016/17 summer period.  The public exhibition and community voting closes on Tuesday 19 July 2016. 

3.   Graffiti Statistics

At its meeting on 20 June 2016 the Board asked staff to provide graffiti statistics comparisons with other Wards and also comparable statistics for May 2013 and 2015.  This information is attached. 

4.   Seagull-Proof Rubbish Bins - Rust

On 20 June 2016 the Board noted that the new seagull-proof rubbish bins were affected by rust.  The Board decided to request staff to ensure that before any future rubbish bins are purchased for the greater New Brighton area, that options are brought to the Board for discussion and recommendation to utilise local knowledge.

This is to advise that staff have inspected the bins referred to and noticed some discolouration/bleeding around the hinge area.  This will be followed up with the manufacturer and the outcome advised to the Board.

Regarding the request for any new bins in the wider New Brighton area to be brought to the Board for recommendation prior to installation, this has been noted and the request circulated to staff likely to be involved in litter bin installation in Parks and Streets.

5.   Rothesay Road Street Lighting – General Lighting Update

The Board has already received advice from staff on improvements to lighting in Rothesay Road that had been requested by Mr and Mrs Patrick at 74 Rothesay Road.  The staff response was that the level of lighting in the road was consistent with normal requirements.  The Board indicated it did not agree with the advice received because of unique circumstances including traffic volume in Rothesay Road.  A traffic count was carried out between 17 February and 9 March with the average count being 3,207 vehicles per day.  Staff consider this to be a low count and therefore the current lighting levels are regarded as sufficient and street lights in Rothesay Road will not be changed/upgraded.

The Board then decided to ask staff to reconsider this once the current road works in Prestons Road were complete and the traffic effects of the Prestons subdivision could be assessed.  While that action is still to take place the following is a general update about street lighting renewals in the east: 

The focus for the renewal programme is to replace the old fluorescent lights throughout the city as these are in poor condition having been installed in the 1960s.  The highest priority has been around Brighton as these are in the worst condition and causing maintenance problems.  The fluorescent lights have been replaced in South Brighton and south shore and this year North New Brighton is the focus.  Usually it is a one for one replacement unless it is on a collector or arterial (eg Marine Parade) where the lighting is upgraded to an appropriate standard.  This year Bower Ave New Brighton Rd to Beach Rd and Beach Rd are programmed for upgrading.  As mentioned at the Board seminar these roads carry higher levels of traffic than the section of Rothesay Road under discussion, with lights causing maintenance problems and are therefore a higher priority.

 

When the fluorescent lights have been replaced throughout the city the High-pressure sodium lights (HPS) will then be targeted for replacement with LED.  There are some old HPS lights on busy arterial and collector roads that would be higher priority than lights in Rothesay which are not that old.  This is some way off based on current funding however changing to LED provides energy and maintenance savings so there is a benefit in accelerating the programme and this may happen in the future but will need to go through the council budgeting process.  The lighting renewal programme also has to address poor condition lighting poles and other issues that arise.
