3.   Community Board Activities and Forward Planning

3.1       Community Board Plan update against outcomes

3.1.1   A Workshop was held on 26 June 2017 for the Board to prioritise their goals against Council's strategic framework of Strong Communities, Liveable City, Healthy Environment and Prosperous Economy.  A further workshop will be held to refine the Board’s priorities before a number of community engagement activities are undertaken to gather feedback and suggestions from the local community.

3.2       Memos/Information reporting back on Community Board matters

3.2.1   Public Transport Projects Update

·     Papanui Road Bus Stop and Loading Zone – This project is currently going through a design assessment before being sent to relevant stakeholders and the Community Board.  The option assessment will be guided by the Christchurch Network management Plan and the Christchurch Transport Strategic plan.  The impact of any proposed changes on road safety is an important consideration.  An independent safety audit will be carried out on any potential changes to the existing bus stop to further help Council staff outline the implication of each option that will be presented to the community by the end of September 2017.

·     Bus stop relocation to 544 Memorial Avenue – The associated bus passenger shelter is currently being installed.  Staff are awaiting the final quote from a contractor to undertake work associated with the indented bus stop.

·     Bus stop relocation Hussey Road – The date of installation is yet to be established.  Staff are to consider the suggestions raised by the Community Board at the time in which the parking restrictions are approved.

3.2.2   Roading Updates

·        Harakeke Street – The community continue to raise concerns regarding commuters rat running and speeding through Harakeke Street to avoid peak traffic delays at the Straven Road intersection and associated safety issues for cyclists and Christchurch Boys High School Hostel students using Harakeke Street at that time.

A number of traffic calming measures have already been installed in Harakeke Street, however staff are investigating and will report back to the Board by the end of September 2017.

·        Trafford Street – An issue has been raised regarding visibility at the corner of Trafford Street and Harewood Road. 

Council Staff have investigated the situation and noted that there is no record of any accidents at the site and there have been no Customer Service Requests raised.  Delivery trucks that park near the intersection while servicing the local Dairy however, could be a major factor to the visibility problem and they will be asked to use the adjacent laneway in future.

3.2.2   Tulett Park

In response to a deputation from the Nomads Association Football Club requesting additional parking at Tulett Park staff have advised that they will look into marking individual parks within the road reserve parking bays on Claridges Road once the new sub-division work is completed.

At this point we do not have a timeframe for the sub-division works to be completed.

3.2.3   Farrington Avenue – Pedestrian crossing

In response to an email received from a local resident requesting a pedestrian crossing on Farrington Ave, staff have advised that there are strict guidelines that need to be met before consultation or construction can begin.  One criteria is to meet the threshold of 50 pedestrians per hour when looking install a formal crossing such as this.

Should a pedestrian count be undertaken, and it be less than 50 pedestrians per hour, the information gathered can be recorded and prioritised against a number of other locations within Christchurch for the installation of a pedestrian refuge.

3.24    Sawyers Arms Road Pedestrian Activated Traffic Lights

             Staff have advised that they are in the process of obtaining prices for the Sawyers Arms Road Pedestrian Activated Traffic Lights.   It is expected that at the time the prices are known the contractors’ construction timeframes will also be known. 

3.3       The provision of strategic, technical and procedural advice to the Community Board

3.3.1   The Board is continuing to receive strategic, technical and procedural advice mainly through an ongoing programme of Board seminars.

 

 

3.3.2   Public Forum

The Board held its first meeting since it adopted its new Standing Orders which saw the introduction of the Public Forum with two topics being raised.

             The Board  has the opportunity to change the frequency of its Public Forum and as such, may wish to consider whether the Public Forum continue to be held at the beginning of each formal meeting of the Board, or change to the beginning of the second formal meeting of the month only.

 

3.4       Board area Consultations/Engagement

3.4.1   Alcohol Licence Applications

·    The Vines Club, 651 Pound Road – new On-Licence

Staff are working with the Canterbury Potters Association based at Avice Hill to co-ordinate and run a Christmas event in December.  The event is aimed at promoting their services and activities to attract new members and they will also sell their wares to help fund their ongoing activities.  Assistance is being given around general event management and health and safety processes.

5.3       Bryndwr Door-knock Exercise

The door-knock exercise took place over eight days in May.  The Christchurch Community Response volunteers were also joined by some local volunteers from the Bryndwr community.  All households received information about Neighbourhood Support and the Civil Defence Get Ready pamphlet. 

1,675 homes were visited during the exercise.  There were 61 empty or demolished homes within the area.  Individuals who were identified as requiring additional support were referred to local community organisations for assistance.

6.   Major Community and/or Infrastructure Projects

6.1       Community Facilities

6.1.1   Bishopdale Library and Community Centre

The new Bishopdale Library is progressing well for a planned opening on Saturday 22 July and has been gifted ōWhatarau - Bishopdale Library and Service Centre (Place of many eels) as their new name. The opening will be at 9.30am at 13 Bishopdale Court (next to the old Library site), with a ribbon cutting ceremony and morning tea. The library will open at 10am.

                         Invitations have been sent to a wide range of stakeholders including Councillors, Community Board Members (past and present), local Member of Parliament Minister Brownlee, previous user groups of the facility, local businesses and community organisations.

                         The Opening will include:

·        Welcome from Mana Whenua

·        Kapa Haka performance by students from Breens Intermediate and Islesworth Primary

·        Speeches from Councillor Gough (representing the Mayor), David Cartwright (Board Chair) and Val Carter, who was instrumental in advocating for the new building during her time as Chair of the Fendalton/Waimairi Community Board.

·        Tim Wraight, an artist and carver, will be present at the opening to give some background on his artwork that will be in the building.

                         After the official ribbon cutting, a variety of activities will take place in the facility including face-painting by Cotswold Preschool and Storytime sessions by the Library team.

                         Catering for the event is being provided by a local Bishopdale Mall bakery.

                         Prior to its closure following the earthquakes, the Bishopdale Community Centre was a very well utilised facility with approximately 30 local community groups using the space on a regular basis.  These groups included indoor bowls, table tennis, bridge, yoga, dancing, Mahjong and various Probus Clubs.  A number of these groups have indicated a desire to return to the community centre once it is open.

                         The demolition of the old Library and Community Centre by Southern Demolition is well underway, with a completion target of 30 June 2017.

                   Staff are investigating options for the ongoing management of the new community centre including the opportunity for a partnership with a local community organisation.

6.2       Partnerships with the community and organisations

6.2.1   The Fendalton Leisure Club for Older Adults

This programme is run in partnership with the Village Presbyterian Church and with the introduction of a new supervisor at the programme, the Community Recreation Advisor continues to work with them to assist with a smooth transition. 

Members from three Leisure Clubs met on Thursday 29 June at Oderings Cafe, Barrington for their annual combined function.   Some classy jazz music and singing to go along with a scrumptious afternoon tea was thoroughly enjoyed by all those that attended.

A good effort again from the clubs volunteers and staff that came up with some great quizzes and games that once again stumped most of us.
