5.   Context/Background

5.1       The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board received a deputation from Mr Dave Matheson, resident of 50 Brigham Drive, requesting that the Council’s silver birch tree outside this address, be removed and replaced with a different species of tree.

5.2       The tree was estimated to have been planted in 1997 and is considered to be in a fair condition. It’s a fairly typical example of a silver birch tree in Christchurch. Please refer to the tree assessment in Attachment A.

5.3       The reasons the residents at 50 Brigham Drive would like the tree removed include:

·        The tree shades the street light which affects the lighting of the footpath.

·        The shading effect and leaf debris causes a nuisance.

5.5       A summary of the comments from the two people who supported the removal of the tree include; the tree is damaging the footpath, the tree allergens affect one of the households, the tree has a shading effect on private properties, shading of the street light, the tree debris affecting private property and the blocking of the storm water drain with tree debris.

5.6       A summary of the comments from the two people who opposed the removal of the tree include; the tree is in keeping with the overall look and feel of the subdivision and the time it will take for a new tree to grow, there is ample light from the street light, pruning may help with the problem, the tree adds privacy to the lane off Brigham Drive and Christchurch is the Garden City and established trees should not be removed.

a.         Approve that all parking and stopping restrictions on the south west side of Patterson Terrace, commencing at a point 88 metres south east of its intersection with Alvaston Drive, and extending in a south east direction for a distance of 26 metres, be revoked.

b.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at all times on the south west side of Patterson Terrace commencing at a point 88 metres south east of its intersection with Alvaston Drive, and extending in a south east direction for a distance of four  metres.

c.         Approve that a marked bus stop be installed on the south west side of Patterson Terrace, commencing at a point 92 metres south east of its intersection with Alvaston Drive, and extending in a south east direction for a distance of 14 metres.

d.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at all times on the south west side of Patterson Terrace commencing at a point 106 metres south east of its intersection with Alvaston Drive, and extending in a south east direction for a distance of eight  metres.

 

4.   Key Points

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

4.1.1   Activity: Public Transport Infrastructure

·     Level of Service: 10.4.1 Contribute to increase number of trips made by public transport

·     Level of Service: 10.4.1 Contribute to increase number of trips made by public transport.

·     Level of Service: 10.4.10 Improve the accessibility of bus stops via a targeted review and improvement programme.

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Approve bus stop adjacent to 67 Patterson Terrace (preferred option).

·     Option 2 – Approve bus stop adjacent to 59 Patterson Terrace.

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Clear line of sight at the bus stop for the approaching bus driver.

·     Clear line of sight at the bus stop for passengers waiting at the bus stop.

·     The bus stop is located on a section of road where the road alignment is straight.

·     It is about 66 metres offset from its paired bus stop, which is 23 metres closer than the bus stop presented in Option 2.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     The adjacent property has a low height brick fence, which can be a privacy concern for residents.  However, as indicated in paragraph 5.2, the average number of people waiting for a bus at the existing bus stop per weekday is one person.  This bus stop is most likely used as an ‘outbound’ (towards Longhurst) bus stop, which is used by people alighting a bus, rather than waiting for a bus to arrive.  This means that passengers will be returning home when they get off the bus, and are unlikely to dwell around the bus stop, limiting the impact on privacy and a preference to sit on the low height brick fence.

·     Removal of two kerb-side parking spaces.  While the existing bus stop adjacent to 69/71 Patterson Terrace is unmarked, it occupies the equivalent of three kerbside parking spaces if it was marked in accordance with the Christchurch City Bus Stop Guidelines.  This indicates the proposed location provides a better use of available road space.

·     The bus stop is located between driveways, this means for drivers on the adjacent driveways, their clear line of sight is temporarily blocked.  This is a typical configuration for a bus stop and is only a temporary inconvenience for the driver.  The impact is further mitigated by the passenger usage as indicated in paragraph 5.2, and the bus stop is not used as a timing point.

 

5.   Context/Background

Background

5.1       Patterson Terrace, south east of Alvaston Drive, is serviced by the Orange Line (Queenspark to Halswell) and the number 125 bus (Redwood to Halswell).  The Orange Line is a core bus service and typically runs every 15 minutes for the majority of the day.  The 125 bus service runs every 15 minutes during a limited period in the morning (5.30am to 8.30am) and in the afternoon (2.00pm to 5.00pm), otherwise it generally operates every 30 minutes.

5.2       The bus stop in question primarily caters for the travel of outbound passengers (people on the return leg of their trip), consequently the passenger boarding numbers are very low, averaging about one passenger boarding per weekday.  Its paired ‘inbound’ (towards the City) bus stop has an average of 33 passenger boardings per weekday.  It is likely that the majority of these passengers exit the bus at the bus stop currently adjacent to 69/71 Patterson Terrace. 

5.3       In December 2014, the Orange Line began servicing Patterson Terrace. At the time, the Council received customer requests and bus operator requests to install a new outbound (towards Longhurst subdivision) bus stop in the vicinity of Alvaston Drive and Calverton Place. As a result, a temporary bus stop was installed adjacent to 69/71 Patterson Terrace in early 2015.

5.4       Attachment A shows the existing bus lines and existing bus stop locations in the area, in addition to the proposed bus stop relocation options.

5.5       Council staff have been contacted by an adjacent resident who is concerned about restricted visibility of the temporary bus stop to approaching buses, accessibility for passengers, and the proximity to the curve in the road.  Staff have visited the site and have noted that the bus driver sightlines to the bus stop sign might be restricted by nearby mature trees, and that the bus stop is located at the start of a curved alignment in the road. 

5.6       Minor relocation of the bus stop around 69/71 Patterson Terrace has been discounted by staff, due to the mature trees, proximity to the curved roading alignment, and proximity to two closely spaced intersections.  Staff consider the locations adjacent to 67 or 59 Patterson Terrace would provide a suitable location for buses to stop.

Public Consultation

5.7       The properties listed below are those specifically affected by this option due to the proximity of the property to the proposed bus stops.  Consultation documentation was posted by mail and hand delivered to each of the properties listed below.  The consultation period commenced on Wednesday 30 November 2016 and finished on Friday 22 December 2016.

·   57, 59, 61, 63, 65, 67, 69 Patterson Terrace

5.8       Of the properties listed above, the owner of 59 Patterson Terrace contacted staff to indicate their objection to the bus stop option adjacent to 59 Patterson Terrace, and preference to locate the bus stop adjacent to 67 Patterson Terrace.

5.9       The owner of 67 Patterson Terrace contacted staff to indicate their objection to the bus option adjacent to 67 Patterson Terrace, and preference to locate the bus stop adjacent to 59 Patterson Terrace.

5.10    The owner of 69 Patterson Terrace contacted staff to indicate the preference to locate the bus stop adjacent to 59 Patterson Terrace.

5.11    Further information about the objections and preferences indicated above is provided in paragraphs 6.7 to 6.20.  No responses were received from the property owners/tenants of the remaining properties listed above.

5.12    Council staff have also consulted with Environment Canterbury (ECan), as they manage the operation of the bus network.  ECan have indicated the preference to have the bus stop located adjacent to 67 Patterson Terrace as it is located closer to its paired bus stop.  ECan have indicated that 59 Patterson Terrace would be fine if their prefered location does not become the finalised location.

6.   Option 1 – Installation of a bus stop adjacent to 67 Patterson Terrace (preferred option)

Option Description

6.1       As shown on Attachment B, the proposed bus stop is located adjacent to 67 Patterson Terrace.

6.2       The proposed bus stop is located directly adjacent to an unrestricted full height kerb that is present along the full length of the bus stop. 

6.3       A young tree that is located within the grassed section of the berm will be relocated by about three metres to allow unrestricted access for passengers exiting from the rear door of the bus, and to allow for a full length passenger hardstand to be installed.

6.4       The dimensions of the proposed bus stops are compliant to the bus stop recommended configuration as indicated in the Christchurch City Bus Stop Guidelines (2009).

Significance

6.5       The level of significance of this option is low, consistent with Section 2 of this report.  Engagement requirements for this level of significance are consultation with adjacent property owners and/or occupiers, and engagement with Environment Canterbury as the relevant bus network operator.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.6       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

6.7       As indicated in Section 5, consultation information regarding the proposed bus stop installation was posted by mail and hand delivered to each of the properties listed below.  The consultation period commenced on Wednesday 30 November 2016 and finished on Friday 22 December 2016.

·   57, 59, 61, 63, 65, 67, 69 Patterson Terrace

6.8       Of the properties listed above, the owner of 59 Patterson Terrace contacted staff to indicate their objection to the bus stop option adjacent to 59 Patterson Terrace, and preference to locate the bus stop adjacent to 67 Patterson Terrace.

6.9       The owner of 67 Patterson Terrace contacted staff to indicate their objection to the bus option adjacent to 67 Patterson Terrace, and preference to locate the bus stop adjacent to 59 Patterson Terrace.

6.10    The owner of 69 Patterson Terrace contacted staff to indicate the preference to locate the bus stop adjacent to 59 Patterson Terrace.

6.11    No responses were received from the property owners/tenants of the remaining properties listed above.

6.12    Council staff have also consulted with Environment Canterbury (ECan), as they manage the operation of the bus network.  ECan have indicated the preference to have the bus stop located adjacent to 67 Patterson Terrace, as it is closer to its paired bus stop.  ECan have indicated that 59 Patterson Terrace would be fine if their prefered location does not become the finalised location.

Summary of objection – 67 Patterson Terrace

6.13    A low height brick fence separates the property from the road reserve.  The owners are concerned passengers might use the low height fence as a seat.  The properties living spaces are road facing, and the owner is concerned people waiting for a bus will be looking into the living spaces.  The owners have indicated that on the opposite side of the road there are two flats, where the residents tend to park on-street.  They are concerned that the bus stop will limit the road space capacity for through traffic to pass, while a vehicle is parked on the opposite side of the road.  The owners of 67 Patterson Terrace have indicated a preference to locate the bus stop adjacent to 59 Patterson Terrace, as it is fenced (has mature shrubbery) at the front of the property, and there might be less on-street parking occurring at that location.

Staff response

6.14    It can be preferable for bus stops to be located adjacent to properties with higher fences.  However, as indicated in paragraph 5.2, the existing bus stop is rarely used by passengers waiting for a bus (average of one passenger per weekday).  The bus stop is much more likely to be used as an outbound bus stop by passengers returning home, as such there is very limited reason for the pedestrian to remain at the bus stop once they have exited the bus.  While it might be considered a hindrance by the adjacent resident, the occurrence of a bus stopping at this location is infrequent, minimising the impact on privacy and the chance of a person using the low height fence as a seat.

6.15    The bus stop will for the majority of the day be vacant.  During the infrequent occasions of passengers being dropped off, a motorist traveling behind the bus will have to make the decision if it is safe to pass or not, that is adhering to the road rules.  For the majority of time, when the bus stop is vacant, the space will be of assistance to traffic flow that might be constrained by vehicles that are parked on the opposite side of the street.

Summary of objection – 59 Patterson Terrace

6.16    The owner of 59 Patterson Terrace objects to having passengers waiting outside their property, and are concerned about littering by waiting passengers.  Young children live at the property, and consider a bus stopping outside their driveway a risk factor.  The owner of 59 Patterson Terrace has indicated a preference to locate the bus stop adjacent to 67 Patterson Terrace.

Staff response

6.17    As indicated in paragraph 5.2, the existing bus stop is rarely used by passengers waiting for a bus.  The bus stop is much more likely to be used as an outbound bus stop by passengers returning home, as such there is very limited reason for the pedestrian to remain at the bus stop once they have exited the bus.  Irrespectively the bus stop is located within a public space, and the bus stop is there to improve personal mobility of that community. 

6.18    No complaints concerning loitering, littering or driveway incidents have been received during the two years the existing bus stop has been operational.  Again, due to this bus stop most likely being used as an outbound bus stop, littering is less likely to be an issue as passengers are not waiting for the bus to arrive at the bus stop.  However, if littering at the bus stop were to become an issue in the future, council staff can assess if the installation of a rubbish bin is warranted. 

6.19    Roads and driveways can be dangerous places for children.  The bus will not be stopping across the driveway, but it will be stopping close to it.  Bus stops are a normal feature of urban roads that provide people with a choice to travel by public transport.  As per the interaction with other vehicles, children need to be thought safe practices to keep them safe around driveways and roads in general.

Summary of response – 69 Paterson Terrace

6.20    The response indicates a preference for the bus stop to be located adjacent to 59 Patterson Terrace, as it is located further away from the bend and closer to a street light.

Staff response

6.21    The points raised by the submitter are all valid.  The light spill at 59 Patterson Terrace would be better than at 67 Patterson Terrace.  However, between the street lights located to the north and south of 67 Patterson Terrace, light spill will still occur at 67 Patterson Terrace.  As indicated in paragraph 5.2 this bus stop is likely to be used by passenger returning home, rather than waiting for a bus.  The bus stop would be further away from the curve in the road alignment, where it is currently situated, however locating the bus stop at 67 Patterson Terrace also means it is being sited on a straight section of road, and would be 23 metres closer to its paired bus stop on the opposite side of the road.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

6.22    This option is consistent with the Council’s Plans and Policies

Financial Implications

6.23    Cost of Implementation - The estimated cost of this proposal is about $5,000.

6.24    Maintenance/Ongoing Costs - Transport and City Streets, Operations Expenditure budget, includes maintenance of bus stop infrastructure, as and when it is needed.

6.25    Funding source - Traffic Operations, Capital Expenditure budget for bus stop installation.

Legal Implications

6.26    The Christchurch City Council’s Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2008, provides the Council with the authority to install stopping and parking restrictions by resolution.  The Council has delegated this authority for this part of the city to the relevant community board.

6.27    The installation of any traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.  These markings will comply.

6.28    Adheres to the minimum recommendations of the Christchurch Bus Stop Guidelines (2009).

Risks and Mitigations

6.29    Road users park in the marked bus stop box and on the 'No Stopping' lines.  The risk is mitigated by vehicle users obeying the road rules, or by parking enforcement if deemed necessary.

Implementation

6.30    Implementation dependencies - The implementation is dependent on the Hornby-Halswell-Riccarton Community Board approving the recommendations as described in Section 3.

6.31    Implementation timeframe - The timeframe for implementation is dependent on the contractor’s workloads.  It is estimated that implementation should occur within three months of the proposed parking restriction resolutions being approved.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.32    The advantages of this option include:

·   Clear line of sight at the bus stop for the approaching bus driver.

·   Clear line of sight at the bus stop for passengers waiting at the bus stop.

·   The bus stop is located on a section of road where the road alignment is straight.

·   It is about 66 metres offset from its paired bus stop, which is 23 metres closer than the bus stop presented in Option 2.

6.33    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   The adjacent property has a low height brick fence, which can be a privacy concern for residents.  However, as indicated in paragraph 5.2, the average number of people waiting for a bus at the existing bus stop per weekday is one person.  This bus stop is most likely used as an ‘outbound’ bus stop, which is used by people alighting a bus, rather than waiting for a bus to arrive.  This means that passengers will be returning home when they get off the bus, and are unlikely to dwell around the bus stop, limiting the impact on privacy and preference to sit on the low height brick fence.

·   Removal of two kerb-side parking spaces.  While the existing bus stop adjacent to 69/71 Patterson Terrace is unmarked, it occupies the equivalent of three kerb-side parking spaces if it was marked in accordance with the Christchurch City Bus Stop Guidelines.  This indicates the proposed location provides a better use of available road space.

·   The bus stop is located between driveways, this means for drivers on the adjacent driveways, their clear line of sight temporarily blocked.  This is a typical configuration for a bus stop and is only a temporary inconvenience for the driver.  The impact is further mitigated by the passenger usage as indicated in paragraph 5.2, and the bus stop is not used as a timing point.


 

7.   Option 2 – Installation of a bus stop adjacent to 59 Patterson Terrace

Option Description

7.1       As shown in Attachment C, the proposed bus stop is located adjacent to 59 Patterson Terrace.

7.2       The proposed bus stop is located directly adjacent to unrestricted, full height kerb that is present along the full length of the bus stop. 

7.3       A young tree that is located within the grassed section of the berm will be relocated by about three metres to allow unrestricted access for passengers exiting from the rear door of the bus, and to allow for a full length passenger hardstand to be installed.

7.4       The dimensions of the proposed bus stops are compliant to the bus stop recommended configuration as indicated in the Christchurch City Bus Stop Guidelines (2009).

Significance

7.5       The level of significance of this option is low, consistent with Section 2 of this report.  Engagement requirements for this level of significance are consultation with adjacent property owners and/or occupiers, and engagement with Environment Canterbury as the relevant bus network operator.

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.6       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 Ngai Tahu, their culture and traditions.

Community Views and Preferences

7.7       Refer paragraphs 6.7 to 6.21.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

7.9       Cost of Implementation - The estimated cost of this proposal is about $5,000.

7.10    Maintenance/Ongoing Costs - Transport and City Streets, Operations Expenditure budget, includes maintenance of bus stop infrastructure, as and when it is needed.

Implementation

7.16    Implementation dependencies - The implementation is dependent on the Hornby-Halswell-Riccarton Community Board.  If the preference by the Hornby-Halswell-Riccarton Community Board is Option 2, this means another report will be presented to the Board to resolve the parking / stopping restrictions associated with Option 2.

7.17    Implementation timeframe - The timeframe for implementation is dependent on the approval process as well as the contractor’s workloads.  It is estimated that implementation should occur within three months of the proposed parking restriction resolutions being approved.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.18    The advantages of this option include:

·   Clear line of sight at the bus stop for the approaching bus driver.

·   Clear line of sight at the bus stop for passengers waiting at the bus stop.

·   The bus stop is located on a section of road where the road alignment is straight.

·   The adjacent property has a mature hedge along the property boundary with Patterson Terrace, which is located in front of a garage building.  This allows for the adjacent residents privacy to be maintained.

7.19    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   It is about 89 metres offset from its paired bus stop, which is 23 metres more than the bus stop presented in Option 1.

·   Removal of two kerb-side parking spaces.  While the existing bus stop adjacent to 69/71 Patterson Terrace is unmarked, it occupies the equivalent of three kerb-side parking spaces if it was marked in accordance with the Christchurch City Bus Stop Guidelines.  This indicates the proposed location provides a better use of available road space.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to approve an easement for the right to drain sewage over part of 40R Pentonville Close, a Council owned Local Purpose (Road) Reserve (refer Attachment A) in Westmorland.

 

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is being submitted to the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board as the adjoining land owner needs to connect their property to the Council’s sewer system and the most logical route for the new sewer pipe is through a Council road reserve.

1.3       The pipeline will cross a Council owned reserve administered under the Reserves Act and therefore requires Board approval to grant an easement.

2.   Significance

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

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined utilising the significance and engagement assessment worksheet. 

2.1.2   The community engagement and consultation outlined in this report reflects the assessment.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board, acting in the capacity of the administering body, resolve to:

1.         Recommend that the Chief Executive acting as the Minister of Conservation’s delegate, consents to the granting of the easement for the right to drain sewage as outlined in the staff report.

2.         Approve pursuant to Section 48(1) of the Reserves Act 1977, the granting of an easement for the right to convey water over 40R Pentonville Close (Certificate of Title reference 323977), shown as the area shaded blue marked “Right to Drain Sewage” on the plan attached to the staff report, subject to the consent of the Minister of Conservation.

3.         Authorise the Property Consultancy Manager, should the easement be granted with the consent of the Minister of Conservation, to finalise documentation to implement the easement including recovering all Council costs for granting the easement from the applicant.

 

 

4.   Key Points

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

4.1.1   Activity: Wastewater Collection

·     Level of Service: 11.0.1 Provide wastewater collection in a safe, convenient and efficient manner (customer satisfaction)

4.2       The following feasible two options have been considered:

·        Option 1 – Grant an easement (preferred option).

·        Option 2 – Do not grant an easement.

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·        The easement will protect the infrastructure in perpetuity.

·        The easement will identify the existence of the pipeline on the Title.

·        An easement is a requirement of the Reserves Act.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·        The property will be encumbered with an easement.

 

5.   Context/Background

Background

5.1       The owners of 304 Worsleys Road are installing a new sewer pipe to service their property that does not currently have a connection to the Council’s sewer network. The most cost effective alignment is to connect the pipe to a sewer main in Pentonville Close by running a lateral through a Council owned Local Purpose (Road) Reserve.

5.2       The Council’s Transport and Three Waters and Waste staff have been involved in this request and are supportive.

Easement

5.3       Section 48 of the Reserves Act 1977 (“the Act”) provides that the administering body (Council), with the consent of the Minister of Conservation, may grant easements for providing or facilitating the drainage of any other land not forming part of the reserve or for any other purpose connected with any such land. Under section 48(2) of the Act, it is necessary for the Council to publicly notify its intention to grant an easement except where the reserve is unlikely to be materially altered or permanently damaged, and the rights of the public in respect of the reserve are unlikely to be permanently affected (section 48(3) of the Act).  As the works are below ground, the rights of the public will not be permanently affected and therefore no public notification is required.

5.4       The easement area required is annotated on Attachment A.

5.5       For easements, the Council has delegated the role of administering body to community boards.  The decision is subject to the consent of the Minister of Conservation (48 (1) of the Reserves Act).

 

Consent of the Minister of Conservation

5.6       By way of the Instrument of Delegation to Territorial Authorities the Minister of Conservation has delegated the Minister’s consent powers to Council. 

5.7       The delegation from the Minister includes an expectation that the role of administering body will be kept separate from the role as Minister’s delegate.  The Council has addressed this through making community boards the administering body and the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) the Minister’s delegate.

5.8       The Minister’s delegate responsibilities have not been sub-delegated to staff and remain with the CEO.

5.9       In exercising the consent of the Minister of Conservation, the Council should be satisfied that due process has been followed and in this respect it is confirmed that the following matters have been considered:

·   The land is held by the Council as a reserve subject to the Reserves Act 1977.

·   The easement being applied for, falls within the purposes specified in Section 48(1) of the Act.

·   There are sufficient grounds to waive the public notification requirements of Section 48(2) of the Reserves Act as the works comply with Section 48(3).

·   Iwi have not been consulted as this site is not a site of significance to Tangata Whenua in the City Plan.

7.12    Implementation timeframe - Not applicable

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.13    The advantages of this option include:

·        No change for the Council.

7.14    The disadvantages of this option include:

·        Not granting an easement to protect the pipeline could result in damage to it or it being built over in the future.

·        Not granting an easement is in contravention of the Reserves Act.

·        If the Council decided to sell the land in the future, an easement would need to be put in place at that time to provide the rights required.
