1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee to approve the installation of P15 parking restrictions along part of the north side of Moorhouse Avenue between Waller Terrace and Stewart Street in accordance with Attachment A.

1.2       This site is located within the road network as shown in Attachment B.

Origin of Report

1.3       This report is staff generated in response to a request from a local business situated at 85a Moorhouse Avenue.

2.   Significance

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

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by assessment of the magnitude of the problem and the number of properties affected by the preferred option.

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee:

1.         Revoke the existing 60 minute parking restriction on the north side of Moorhouse Avenue, commencing at a point 7 metres west of its intersection with Stewart Street and extending in a western direction for 34 metres.

4.   Key Points

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

4.1.1   Activity: Parking

·     Level of Service: 10.3.8 Optimise operational performance

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Option 1 – Install P15 Parking Restrictions (preferred option)

·     Option 2 – Do nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Provides a higher turnover of parking occupancy to improve customer access to the L4 Lunch takeaway shop.

·     Provides improved access for loading and deliveries.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     None identified

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       The business owner at the L4 lunch takeaway shop has expressed concern about parked vehicles occupying the P60 parking spaces outside their business at 85a Moorhouse Avenue. Whilst this activity is legitimate and includes their own customers, vehicles (predominantly customers at Paul Kelly motors) often park randomly within the 34 metres length for up to an hour. Consequently, parking turnover is considered to be longer than necessary.

5.2       Deliveries to L4 Lunch and customers in medium or large goods vehicles have substantial difficulty manoeuvring into a parking space near the shop. There is also no dedicated off-street space available for deliveries to take place.

5.3       Upon investigation, staff concur that sporadic parking in the P60 parking area presents difficulties for customers and deliveries. The installation of the P15 restrictions will increase parking turnover to assist business activity at L4 lunch and retain parking opportunities for the adjacent business activities.

5.4       Since the proposal is for Monday to Friday only, the adjacent business would be unaffected during weekends.

 


 

6.   Option 1 – Install P15 and reduce P60 restrictions

Option Description

6.1       Install P15 restriction on the north side of Moorhouse Avenue in accordance with Attachment A.

6.2       These restrictions would be in effect between Monday to Friday, 6am to 3.30pm, which corresponds with the business hours of the L4 Lunch activity.

6.3       his option provides approximately 3 car lengths of P15 parking space on the street and the existing P60 would change from 5 spaces to 2 

6.4       This would increase parking turnover and result in more efficient utilization of the combined P15/P60 bay.

Significance

6.5       The level of significance of this option is low and is consistent with section 2 of this report.

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       Council officers have discussed with the affected business at 85 (Majestic church) and 95 (Paul Kelly Motors) Moorhouse Avenue.

6.8       A written response was received from the Majestic church, who have confirmed their support. They referred to a weekly dance class that is held at that venue at 4pm. Consequently their support is based on the restriction being limited to before 4pm.

6.9       Paul Kelly Motors have not provided a written response though they have verbally indicated that they would have no objections to the proposal

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.11    Cost of Implementation – $200 to install signs.

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

6.13    Funding source – Traffic Operations budget.

Legal Implications

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

6.15    The Parking Restrictions Subcommittee has delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations.  The list of delegations for the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee includes the resolution of stopping restrictions and traffic control devices.

6.16    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    

6.17    Not applicable.

Implementation

6.18    Implementation dependencies - Parking Restrictions Subcommittee approval.

6.19    Implementation timeframe – approximately four weeks once the area contractor receives the request.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.20    The advantages of this option include:

·     Provides a higher turnover of parking occupancy to improve customer access to the L4 Lunch takeaway shop.

·     Provides improved access for loading and deliveries.

6.21    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   None identified.

7.   Option 2 -  Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1       Retain the existing P60 Parking Restriction.

Significance
