1.   Secretarial Note:

1.1       The Board previously considered this report at its 3 July 2017 meeting.  It was decided to lay the report on the table until details of proposed scheme modifications are complete.  The proposed scheme modifications are now complete.

2.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

2.1       The purpose of this report is for the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to approve the installation of no stopping restrictions along parts of both sides side of Ruru Road between Maces Road and Dyers Road in accordance with Attachment A.

2.2       The site is located within the road network as shown in Attachment B.

Origin of Report

2.3       This report was staff generated in response to a request from Transpower who own a major substation located on the south side of Ruru Road approximately 150m east of Maces Road.

2.4       These measures have been requested to maintain safe two way operation for commercial vehicles accessing the Transpower site and the Orion site located on the opposite side who during consultation, raised similar concerns, warranting stopping restrictions at key locations.

3.   Significance

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

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

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

 

4.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board:

1.         Approve the No Stopping Restriction on the north side of Ruru Road commencing at a point 95m east of its intersection with Maces Road and extending in an easterly direction for 28 metres.

5.   Key Points

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

5.1.1   Activity: Parking

·     Level of Service: 10.3.8 Optimise operational performance

5.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Option 1 – Install No Stopping restrictions (preferred option)

·     Option 2 – Do nothing

5.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

5.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Provides a clear route for commercial vehicles to access Transpower and Orion substations

·     Ensures that appropriate road width for two way traffic is maintained

·     Ensures that good sight lines are maintained for vehicles turning our of the substation accesses

5.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     None identified

 

6.   Context/Background

6.1       Transpower Ltd have raised concern that access by their commercial vehicles to their substation on the south side of Ruru Road is proving difficult due to the number of parked vehicles on this road, which are due to staff based at nearby premises. This is problem is also experienced by similar large vehicles accessing the Orion substation immediately opposite, on the north side of Ruru Road.

6.2       Due to the random nature of maintenance and emergency response, access is required along this route throughout the day. Consequently parking restrictions have been requested, to deter the obstruction of large vehicles passing in either direction.

6.3       Upon investigation, council staff observed that parking takes place on Ruru Road for most of the day including early morning and evening, which results in unreasonable constraints to the movement of commercial vehicles, as well as affecting sight lines for vehicles leaving the substations.

6.4       Staff consider that there are other parking opportunities, a short distance further east on Ruru Road that require a slightly longer walk to the main employers in the area.

6.5       The installation of the no stopping restrictions will ensure that Ruru Road will remain clear in the vicinity of the two substations, to ensure that emergency access by larger vehicles is safeguarded.


 

7.   Option 1 – Install No Stopping restrictions (preferred)

Option Description

7.1       Install no stopping restrictions on both sides of part of Ruru Road in accordance with Attachment A.

Significance

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

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       Letters of consultation with a site plan have been issued to the tenants and property owners at 225 -230 Maces Road and 77-100 Ruru Road.

7.5       Three responses of objection were received from nearby properties, including GoBus Ltd and the owners of their property who referred to staff needs for using the section for parking.

7.6       Transpower subsequently held a meeting with GoBus to understand their concerns. Consequently, the proposal was modified to reduce the original extent of restrictions slightly by removing a section at the western end of Ruru Road.

7.7       A modified proposal showed that a section of restriction could be removed and would alleviate the concerns of the local employers, without compromising commercial vehicle access.

7.8       A response in support of the proposal was received from Orion NZ who own the substation site located on the north side of the site. They referred to similar operational concerns and requested a further short section of restriction to assist their large vehicles being able to turn out. This request has been incorporated in the modified scheme.

7.9       All of the affected parties have since confirmed that they are satisfied that the modified proposal would be acceptable.

7.10    The modified scheme as proposed is considered appropriate to address the operational needs of Transpower and Orion NZ and that the displaced parking would be accommodated at other locations on Ruru Road and elsewhere, with only minor additional walking time.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

7.12    Cost of Implementation - $300 to install road markings.

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

7.14    Funding source – Traffic Operations budget.

Legal Implications

7.15    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.

7.16    The Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board 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.

7.17    The installations of any sign and/or road markings associated with traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

Risks and Mitigations

7.18    Not applicable

Implementation

7.19    Implementation dependencies - Linwood-Central-Heathcote board approval.

7.20    Implementation timeframe – approximately 3-4 weeks once the area contractor receives the request.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.21    The advantages of this option include:

·   Provides a clear route for commercial vehicles to access Transpower and Orion substations

·   Ensures that an appropriate road width for two way traffic is maintained

·   Ensures that good sight lines are maintained for vehicles turning out of the substation accesses

7.22    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   None identified

8.   Option 2 – Do Nothing

Option Description

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

8.3       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

8.4       This option is inconsistent with the request for No Stopping Restrictions to support the safe movement of commercial vehicles accessing substations on both sides.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

2.1       The purpose of this report is for the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to approve the location of the temporary Sumner Skate Ramp on legal road at the Corner of 26 Nayland Street, Sumner subject to a resource consent.

Origin of Report

2.2       This report is being provided to fulfil Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board resolution number LCHB/2017/00063 from 15 February 2017;

To request that staff work with the Sumner Village Green and Skatepark Group and local elected representatives to find a longer term site for the temporary ramp in Sumner.

3.   Significance

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

3.1.1   The level of significance was determined by using the engagement significance matrix. Staff have considered the significance of the decision to be made by the Community Board. Their assessment is that the matter is of low significance for the following reasons:

3.1.2   The ramp is a temporary measure, and it is expected use will be from local residents.

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

 

4.   Staff Recommendations

That the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board:

1.         Approve the proposed location for the Sumner Community Temporary Skate Ramp on legal road at the corner of 26 Nayland Street, Sumner.

a.         The proposed location is subject to resource consent.

 

 

5.   Key Points

5.1       Sumner Green and Skate have proposed that the Sumner Community Temporary Ramp be located on legal road at the corner of 26 Nayland Street, Sumner.

5.2       Council staff have agreed this site has merit, with approval from traffic operations, however a resource consent would be required due to potential noise.

5.3       Further discussions need to be had between the Community Board and staff around the approved Street Enhancement works in Sumner.

5.4       Community engagement with local businesses occurred on Monday 10 July 2017, with results to be shared with the Board on Wednesday 19 July 2017.

 

6.   Context/Background

6.1       In 2012 Sumner Green and Skate established a village green and skate ramp on the former Sumner Community Site at 14 Wakefield Avenue, Sumner. The site is well used by the community over the next four years with approximately 13,500 visits per year to the village green and 11,000 visits per year to the skate ramp.

6.2       In 2016, the temporary ramp was relocated to 2 Wakefield Avenue, due to the construction of Matuku Takotako: Sumner Centre on 14 Wakefield Avenue.

6.3       On 27 January 2017, the temporary ramp was closed due to it not complying with both the day-time and night-time noise standards of the Christchurch City Plan (refer Attachment A)

6.4       Sumner Green and Skate presented a deputation to the Community Board on 15 February 2017 requesting that CCC work with the group to find a longer term site for a temporary ramp in Sumner.

6.5       Sumner Green and Skate’s preferred site for the Sumner Community Temporary Ramp is on legal road on the corner of 26 Nayland Street, Sumner (refer Attachment B). Council staff have agreed this site has merit.

Noise

6.6       It has been recommended by Marshall Day Acoustics that a resource consent is applied for. This is due to the possibility of the skate ramp having the potential to exceed the 55 dB LAeq permitted daytime noise standard for the Commercial Zones and activity is therefore considered discretionary with respect to noise. As the Wakefield and Nayland St commercial zone site boundaries are subject to relatively high noise levels from traffic during the day, it is anticipate that noise effects will be acceptable

6.7       The skate ramp will be closed in the evenings from 9pm. The Sumner Skate and Green group are investigating options to ensure this happens every evening. This may include Sumner Community Watch locking the ramp and/or Councils security team who close parks to be involved if required.

Street Enhancement Project & Sumner Village Masterplan

6.8       On 12 December 2016 the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board approved the general layout for the Sumner Suburban Master Plan as detailed in concept plan TP342701 Issue 4, dated 12/12/2016, including kerb alignment, traffic islands, surface treatment and line markings.  The approved streetscape upgrade is due to begin in April 2018, and the Community Skate Ramp is proposed to go in an area included in this upgrade.

6.9       The Sumner Community Temporary Skate Ramp may need to be relocated in April 2018 due to proposed street enhancement works, further discussions with the Board and Council staff are required to sort a suitable solution.

Traffic Operations

6.10    The location has been approved by the Traffic Operations Team. They wanted to ensure that pedestrians have suitable access around the ramp from Wakefield Avenue and Nayland Street and that it was straight and direct as possible. This has been achieved in the proposed layout of the Community Ramp (refer attachment B).

Community Engagement

6.11    On Monday 10 July staff visited 35 local Sumner businesses. Staff spoke to 16 businesses and left leaflets (refer Attachment C) with 19 businesses that were closed. We also left leaflets with two residents that were not home. All businesses and residents have until close on business on Monday 17 July to respond with questions and comments and staff will update the Board around these responses at the Board meeting on Wednesday 17 July 2017.

1.   Secretarial Note:

1.1       This report was previously presented to the Board’s 19 July 2017 meeting as a supplementary report.  The Board did not resolve to receive the report as a supplementary thus is being presented to the Board’s 31 July 2017 meeting.

 

2.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

2.1       The purpose of this report is for the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board to consider feedback on the community engagement process and feedback on the Botanic Gardens Spatial Plan, a report on which will be presented to the Social & Community Development Committee.

Origin of Report

2.2       This report is provided to fulfil Council resolution CNCL/2017/00085.

Council Resolved CNCL/2017/00085

That the Council:

1.      Approve the Christchurch Botanic Gardens Spatial Plan for community engagement and feedback, to be reported back to the Social and Community Development Committee within three months.

Councillor Clearwater/Councillor Johanson                                                                                               Carried

3.   Significance

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

3.1.1   The level of significance was determined by the number of people with an interest in the Botanic Gardens and potential for increased interest to be generated. The Botanic Gardens also have cultural importance in Christchurch.

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

 

4.   Staff Recommendations

That the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board:

1.         Support the Botanic Gardens Spatial Plan in its current form.

 

 

5.   Key Points

5.1       To fulfil Council resolution number CNCL/2017/00085, a report is in preparation to the Social and Community Development Committee on community engagement and the feedback on the Botanic Gardens Spatial Plan.

5.2       Feedback from the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board will be incorporated in the above report to the Social and Community Development Committee.

5.3       Written feedback in response to the Spatial Plan was received from 44 people and organisations (Attachment A).

5.4       Written feedback has been collated and summarised under different project or issue headings, and a commentary provided for each of these headings (Attachment B).

5.5       Thirty people also joined one of the six scheduled guided walks in the Botanic Gardens, several of these indicating that they would also complete a feedback form. Their verbal feedback has also been summarised (Attachment B).

5.6       Of the 44 written respondents, 17 commented on the Spatial Plan itself. The relevant feedback from respondents is categorised as follows:

·   Supportive and appreciative comments about the Spatial Plan and how it illustrates the ways in which the projects in the Master Plan are accommodated in the existing framework.

Specific comments: “excellent”, “in support”, “generally supportive”, “support proposals”, “Overall I support the plan”, “We applaud the Council’s initiative”, “…welcome the development of a spatial plan”, “very good”.

·   Less supportive comments suggesting that there should be no change to the Botanic Gardens and that the Master Plan projects illustrated in the Spatial Plan were unnecessary or unwanted.

Specific comments: “…a place of solitude and beauty now so why change?”, “… plan is truly changing the character of the garden”, “we don't need to make huge changes”, “…not tinker with [the Gardens] apart from a gentle tidy-up”, “the gardens are well set out and perfectly functional as they stand”.

·   Comments from a few respondents suggesting that the Spatial Plan was vague or difficult to decipher although these people, along with most other respondents, went on to comment on specific aspects of Master Plan projects in the Spatial Plan.

5.7       Master Plan projects, such as a bridge to the Visitor Centre, the new conservatory complex, and the play landscape, attracted more favourable comment than adverse comment. The most commented on and supported project was a bridge across the Avon River to the Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre.

5.8       Most other comments related to the potential loss of a sense of open space from project development, potential loss of trees or plant collections, and current grounds maintenance.

5.9       Informal feedback provided verbally during guided walks indicated support for a Visitor Centre bridge, the Children’s Play Landscape, the Magnetic Observatory project, the new Conservatory Complex, the Robert McDougall Art Gallery Interface project, and path changes.

5.10    Respondents appreciated the opportunity to be consulted and expressed a desire to have the opportunity to provide further feedback during the development of future projects.

5.11    Overall the feedback provided supports for the Spatial Plan in its current form as a representation of the projects in the Master Plan.

 

6.   Context/Background

6.1       Preparation of the Botanic Gardens Spatial Plan

·   The Botanic Gardens Spatial Plan was prepared for Council by Isthmus Landscape Architects during 2016.

·   The Spatial Plan illustrates how the existing components of the Botanic Gardens and the capital projects defined in the Hagley Park and Botanic Gardens Master Plan and the Botanic Gardens Management Plan can be woven together to enrich visitor experience and engagement, and improve the operation and management of the Botanic Gardens.

·   Preparation of the Spatial Plan during 2016 involved a process of consultation and engagement. Consultation and engagement was managed by Mene Associates and took place with staff; with partners the Christchurch Botanic Gardens Charitable Trust and Ngāi Tūāhuriri Matapopore Charitable Trust; and with other stakeholders (CCC Heritage Advisors, Heritage New Zealand Advisor, Canterbury District Health Board, Canterbury Museum, Christs College, Friends of the Christchurch Botanic Gardens, Hagley - Ferrymead Community Board, Inner City West Neighbourhood Association, Gardens and Victoria Neighbourhood Association). Input from additional interested parties was also sought from the Christchurch Youth Council and Cycling/ Active Transport groups (ViaStrada), CCC Recreation Planners, the CCC visitor experience team, and Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED) advisors.

6.2       Previous reports on the Spatial Plan

·   The Social and Community Development Committee of Council considered a report on the Botanic Gardens Spatial Plan on 1 March 2017.

·   The Social and Community Development Committee endorsed the Botanic Gardens Spatial Plan, and recommended to Council that it approve the Spatial Plan.

·   Council approved the Botanic Gardens Spatial Plan for community engagement and feedback under resolution number CNCL/2017/00085 on 6 April 2017.

6.3       Community Engagement and feedback process

·   Staff sought feedback on the Botanic Gardens Spatial Plan between 29 April and 27 May 2017.

·   Engagement took place through:  Have Your Say (refer attachment C), Newsline articles, social media posts, direct correspondence with neighbours and stakeholders, guided tours in the Botanic Gardens, prominent displays (refer Attachment D) in the Botanic Gardens Visitor Centre and city libraries, and at the Autumn Show held in the Botanic Gardens 29-30 April.

·   Feedback was received online or using a hard copy form. Verbal feedback was also provided and noted during guided tours.

1.   Purpose of Report

The purpose of this report is to resource the Community Board to promote a pro-active partnership approach to decision-making between the Council and Community Boards working together to achieve the best outcomes for the city with decisions being made with a good understanding of community views.

 

2.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board:

1.         Receive the Area Update.

2.         Advise of items the Board would like considered for inclusion in Newsline.

 

 

3.   Community Board Activities and Forward Planning

3.1       Community Board Plan update against outcomes

3.1.1   The Board met and drafted its 2017-19 Community Board Plan.  Staff will present to the Board the Draft Community Board Plan for 2017-19.

3.2       Memos/Information reporting back on Community Board matters

3.2.1   Radley Park Playground – At its 14 June 2017 meeting the Community Board resolved to: Requests staff to investigate reinstating a playground in Radley Park (LCHV/2017/00059).

The playground at Radley Park (located in the blue square on the map below) has approximately 10 years asset life left, therefore its renewal will be programmed for approximately Financial Year 2027. This is dependent on condition closer to the time as maintenance interventions may mean the playground has a longer asset life.

A playground was located in the area circled in red on the map and equipment included a roundabout, swings and see – saw. This equipment was removed in September 2011 due to its condition. Council are proposing to renew Radley Playground (located in the green square on the map below) in financial year 2020, if approved in the next Long Term Plan.

Council can review provision in this catchment during Financial Year 2019.

3.2.2   Radley Park Dog Exercise Area – At its 14 June 2017 Meeting the Community Board resolved to: Requests comments from the Council’s Animal Control Unit Regarding having the fenceless dog park and cycleway in Radley Park (LCHV/2017/00059).

The Dog Exercise Area at Radley Park is included as part of Council’s Dog Control Policy 2016. The Dog Policy defines a Dog Exercise Area as the following ‘areas that are recommended and known to be good and safe places to exercise dogs. Some may have agility equipment and some may not”. As with all public places, dog owners must have their dog under effective control, and owners must carry a leash and the means to dispose of any fouling, and must remove any fouling.

Dogs are prohibited from being ‘within one metre of any fenced or surface Council playground area or playground equipment where there is no fence or special surface’, so the playground at Radley Park is prohibited for dogs.

Council are required to have a Dog Bylaw and Policy as per the Dog Control Act 1996, and there is a requirement for Council to give notice of the draft policy to every person who is, according to its register, the owner of a dog. If any changes were to be made to the Dog Policy, a special consultative procedure would be required (contacting all registered dog owner).

Any area not listed in the schedule of the policy, or is not covered by the general prohibited and leashed categories, is an ‘under effective control’ area, which means that dogs can be exercised freely, off-leash, provided they are ‘under effective control”. A majority of Urban Parks fit into this category.

4.   Key Local Projects (KLPs) and Strengthening Communities Funded Projects

4.1       On 3 July 2017 the Board was presented with a report on an application received from Arts Voice Christchurch seeking funding for their First Thursdays project.  The staff recommendation was for a grant of $6,000 to be made.  The remaining $4,000 was being considered by the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board. The Board gave the Chairperson and Deputy Chairperson the delegations to make a decision on this.

4.2       Staff sought clarification from Arts Voice Christchurch about who they were targeting for the events in terms of participation.  It was explained that while there are arts enthusiasts from other parts of the city who attend the event, the aim was to get residents of surrounding neighbourhoods and suburbs to attend.  While there is advertising across the city, most advertising is done in surrounding suburbs to ensure that local residents become aware of what is available at the local business centre.

4.3       The Board, through the Chairperson and Deputy Chairperson, decided to grant $6,000 to Arts Voice Christchurch towards First Thursdays.

 

5.   Significant Community Issues

5.1       Inner City East
