1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee to approve a P 5 loading zone on Armagh Street near the Crowne Plaza Hotel. (Attachment A)

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated following a request from the Crowne Plaza owners for Council to provide a loading and drop off facility for guests and tour coaches to facilitate the operation of the hotel.

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 by comparing the factors relating to this decision against the criteria set out in the Council’s significance and Engagement Policy

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee:

1.         Approve that all parking and stopping restrictions currently located on the south side of Armagh Street commencing at its intersection with Colombo Street and extending in an easterly direction for a distance of 48 metres be revoked.

2.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at all times on the south side of Armagh Street commencing at its intersection with Colombo Street and extending in a easterly direction for a distance of 32 metres.

3.         Approve that a Loading Zone (restricted to a maximum period of 5 minutes) be installed on the south side of Armagh Street commencing at a point 32 metres east of its intersection with Colombo Street and extending in an easterly direction for a distance of 14 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 – Install the loading zone (preferred option)

·     Option 2 – do nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Installing a  loading zone will facilitate the operation of the Crowne Plaza Hotel

·     Installing a loading zone will improve road safety as it will provide dedicated location for tour coaches and guests to drop off so coach drivers will not have to park on no stopping restrictions or double-park.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Installing the loading zone will necessitate the removal of 2 metred parking spaces temporarily until the Victoria Square project is completed.

 

5.   Context/Background

Armagh Street Proposed Loading Zone

5.1       The property owner and developer of the Crowne Plaza Hotel has requested that a Loading zone be installed in the vicinity of the hotel to facilitate its operation. There are currently two major rebuilds in the immediate vicinity of the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

5.2       The Convention Centre to the west of the hotel has site access requirements for large vehicles from Colombo Street so the allocation of kerb space along the Colombo frontage of the Hotel following the convention centre development is likely to be insufficient for the needs of tour coaches.

5.3       The reconstruction of Victoria Square by Otakaro Limited will realign the kerbs of the Colombo /Armagh intersection, this intersection work has not commenced. The current kerb alignment of the Colombo/ Armagh intersection will change. 

6.   Option 1 - Armagh Street Proposed Loading Zone (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Because of the intersection reconstruction mentioned in 5.3 above not being completed and that its construction will create disruption to the operation of the Hotel it is proposed to install the loading zone in front of the property next door to the hotel at 128 Armagh Street out of the way of the reconstruction until the Otakaro intersection works are completed.(Attachment B)

6.2       On completion the Otakaro intersection works the loading zone will be relocated to the immediate west of the hotel’s Armagh street vehicle entrance and the temporary loading zone location will return back to metred parking as before. This is possible as the new design will remove the current dedicated left turn lane on the Armagh Street west bound approach to Colombo Street.

6.3       The Councils Parking Strategy 2003 for retail and commercial areas places the provision of Loading Zones above the need for short stay private vehicle parking for business needs therefore this proposal is consistent with council plans and policies to support a vibrant central city. The removal of the two metred spaces is temporary only until the completion of the Victoria Square project.

6.4       Both the temporary and eventually the permanent P5 loading zone will provide space for drop off and pick up of guests by shuttles taxis and tour coaches. It will also provide space for service vehicles to the hotel and other businesses although at present there are very few other business in this area of the city.

Significance

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

6.6       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are consultation with adjacent property owners.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.7       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

6.8       The only affected properties in this location are the Hotel and the owners of the property next door at 128 Armagh Street where it is proposed to install the temporary Loading Zone.

6.9       The Owners of the property at No 128 Armagh Street were sent a letter on the 17 July 2017 explaining the proposal as outlined above and seeking their feedback.

6.10    The management of the Crowne Plaza Hotel were personally visited with a plan of the proposed Loading Zone and an explanation of the proposal on the 17 July 2017. The owner and management of the Hotel have emailed staff stating their support for the proposal.  

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

6.11    This option is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies as indicated in 6.3 above.

Financial Implications

6.12    Cost of Implementation –is approximately $500.00

6.13    Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - Are covered under the area maintenance contract.

6.14    Funding source – Current Traffic Operations budgets

Legal Implications

6.15    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.

6.16    The installation of signs and 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  - approval of the Committee

6.19    Implementation timeframe – Approximately two weeks from receiving Committee approval

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.20    The advantages of this option include:

·   Improving road safety outside at the Crowne Plaza Hotel

·   Providing dedicated drop off/pick up including coach and shuttles as well as loading for the Hotel and other businesses that will be opened in the area.

6.21    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Installing the loading zone will necessitate the removal of 2 metred parking spaces temporarily until the Victoria Square project is completed.

7.   Option 2 – Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1       Maintain the Status quo, do not make changes proposed in option 1

Significance

7.2       The level of significance of this option is low consistent with section two 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.

Community Views and Preferences

7.4       See section 6.8 - 6.10 above.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.5       Doing nothing would not align with the Councils Parking policy for business and commercial zones as it would not be providing parking as indicated in 6.3 above.

Financial Implications

7.6       Doing nothing costs nothing

Legal Implications

7.7       See section 6.15 -6.16 above

Risks and Mitigations    

7.8       N/A

Implementation

7.12    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Loading and drop off to the hotel not being provided will create an unsafe road environment at this intersection.
