Origin of Report

1.3       This report is staff generated in response to requests from a local resident.

2.   Significance

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Removes two kerbside parking spaces close to the intersection.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       There has been a recent concern raised by a member of the public regarding the operation of Wrights Road / Cardigan Bay Place.  The intersection is an uncontrolled T - intersection, with priority given to Wrights Road.

5.2       Wrights Road is classified as a minor arterial, and the area is residential around the subject intersection. Wrights Road has an average weekday traffic flow of approximately 16,000 vehicles per day.

5.3       Cardigan Bay Place is a residential cul de sac and is estimated to have an average weekday traffic flow of approximately 250-300 vehicles per day.

5.4       Addington Raceway, Horncastle Arena and the Rugby Stadium are near the subject location and generate high on street parking demand when events are on.

5.5       Vehicles approaching the intersection from Cardigan Bay Place can have limited visibility due to cars parked on Wrights Road. The limited visibility increases the chance of a collision and reduces the intersection level of service.

5.6       Urban KiwiRap software reports a low medium risk on Wrights Road. Risk is ranked in five categories from High (1) to Low (5), low medium is ranked forth. The subject intersection is reported as low risk.

6.   Option 1 - Install No Stopping Restriction (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Install 'No Stopping' restrictions on the Wrights Road / Cardigan Bay Place intersection approaches, as shown on Attachment A.

6.2       This option allows for adequate residential kerbside parking outside property frontages, while ensuring vehicles don’t park near the intersection when parking demand is high during an event at the raceway, stadium or Horncastle arena. Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.4       This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to 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

6.5       Affected property owners and residents were advised of the recommended option by post. No correspondence was received from property owners or property residents.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.7       Cost of Implementation – No more than $50 to install roadmarkings.

6.8       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - Covered under the area maintenance contract and effect will be minimal to the overall asset.

6.9       Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

Legal Implications

6.10    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.

6.11    The Community Boards have delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations.  The list of delegations for the Community Boards includes the resolution of stopping restrictions and traffic control devices.

6.12    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

6.13    Not applicable.

Implementation

6.14    Implementation dependencies - Community Board approval.

6.15    Implementation timeframe - Approximately four weeks once the area contractor receives the request.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

Community Views and Preferences

7.4       This option is inconsistent with community requests for improvement to the intersection.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

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 Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board:

1.         Receive the Area Update.

2.         Agrees that the following items to be reported by the Chairperson in her report to the Council:

a.         July Deputations

b.         First Thursdays Project

3.1       Upcoming Meetings:

3.1.1   Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board Meeting, 1 August 2017, 5pm

3.2       Community Board Plan update against outcomes

3.2.1   The 337 responses received from the engagement programme undertaken to capture community views of local priorities have been collated and analysed. The responses indicate geographic and age differentiated views about important, most liked, and improvable aspects of local suburbs.  The feedback is to be considered by the Board at a workshop on 20 July 2017 for the next step in development of the Community Board Plan.

3.3       Memos/Information reporting back on Community Board matters

3.3.1   Proposed Car Park: Barrington Park

·     At its meeting on 7 February 2017 the Board received a deputation from representatives of the Barrington United Bowling Club regarding the club’s proposal that a public car park be developed on the site of the current playground area at the north end Barrington Park, adjacent to the Bowling Club.  

·     Following the deputation the Board decided to request staff advice on the proposal. (Resolution SCCB/2017/00022).

·     Staff have provided the attached memorandum noting that the play equipment in the area suggested as a possible carpark still has 10-15 years residual life and that there is currently no funding allocated to the development of a carpark. However, staff recognise, the needs outlined in the deputation and annual plan submissions received, and propose that funding be included in the draft long term plan in Financial Year 2023 to build the carpark.

3.3.2   Property at 26 Grove Road, adjacent to Cornelius O’Connor Reserve

·     At its meeting on 7 February 2017, the Board received a deputation regarding the property at 26 Grove Road, adjacent to Cornelius O’Connor Reserve that indicated that an opportunity exists for the property to be acquired by the Council for addition to the Reserve.

·     Following the deputation the Board decided to request staff to investigate and provide advice on the proposal (Community Board Resolution; SCCB/2017/00023)

·     Staff have provided the attached memorandum advising that the Public Open Space Strategy 2010-2014 recommended levels of service for this type of reserve of 1.0 hectare per 1000 people. An analysis for this catchment has shown that there is more than sufficient reserve space currently available in the catchment.  Therefore acquisition of this site as an addition to the adjacent reserve would not be a priority.

·     It was noted also that there is no reserves funding available in the current budget for purchasing this property.

·     In terms of the site’s possible suitability for community building purposes staff advise that clearance of the trees on the property would probably be required as would a change of zone from the current residential zoning.

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

3.4.1   Age-friendly Spreydon Cashmere Collaborative Action Plan.

·     The Board recently agreed to support the development of an Age-friendly Spreydon Cashmere Collaborative Action Plan.  Development of the action plan will be in conjunction with the Board’s adoption of a Community Board plan.  It is envisaged that development of the action plan could encompass evaluation of a number of initiatives that have been raised, for example support for an older Adults event, promotion of an adults playground, and support for the establishment of an additional MENZ shed.

·     Local community governance staff will arrange a workshop with the Board to consider progressing the programme.

3.4.2   90 Hoon Hay Road

·     The former Hoon Hay Children’s Volunteer Library at 90 Hoon Hay Road has been for some time now been operated as a community Centre with Rowley Resource Centre acting as the umbrella lease holder. The recently formed Hoon Hay Community Association has now been incorporated and will take over the lease to run the property as a bookable space whilst investigation into its future is undertaken.

·     Staff continue to work with representatives of the Hoon Hay Community Association, to develop a longer term proposition to Council for ongoing use of 90 Hoon Hay Road by the local community.

·     It should be noted that 90 Hoon Hay Road currently remains on the list of properties in the area that are no longer required, or being utilised, for the purpose that they were originally purchased.  A Board workshop is to be held to commence the Board’s consideration of the Council’s Property Review Process in the Spreydon-Cashmere Wards.

·     The phasing of work will be coordinated with work at the Jellie Park centre to ensure activities can be transferred to other facilities where possible.

·     Staff provided the Board with an update at a recent seminar and indicated that tendering for the work is currently underway.

6.1.2   Old Stone House

·     The Earthquake repair and strengthening work to the Old Stone House that commenced in August 2016 is continuing.

·     All work to the interior corner sections of the building, the work to the lintels and mezzanine areas have been completed.  Expansion joints in the entrance lobby and the perimeter floor hold down devices have been installed.  The steel framework for the chimney and the lining of the chimney has been completed.  The remedial work to the exterior, making good of the building gable ends, dormer ring beams and lintels has also been completed. The deconstruction of the north store room is underway before it’s re-built.

·     Work currently being undertaken to the interior includes the installation of the perimeter skirting and the making good of the existing rafters and corbels.  Once this has been completed the plastering and painting of the interior will be started.

·     Exterior work for the installation of the new steel diaphragm to the roof is underway with the completion of the corner plates and brackets and craning in of the steel sections.  Once this has been completed timber battens will be installed prior to the slate tiles and roof barge boards and trim. 

6.2       Partnerships with the community and organisations

6.2.1   First Thursdays Project

·     The First Thursdays is an interactive arts evening event programme held in Sydenham Shopping Centre.  The project put together by Arts Voice Canterbury that combines art and community recovery ideals was launched in 2013 and two or three events have been held annually.  The programme is seen as providing a boost to Sydenham that suffered significantly as a result of the earthquakes.  The project aims to help forge the emerging “artisan” related new Sydenham with resident and commercial stakeholders trying to retain and grow a proud local identity.

·     The bulk of the establishment costs of the project have been met with Arts funding. The Spreydon/Cashmere Community Board previously provided Discretionary Response Fund grants to help cover budget shortfalls.  The project has a vision of self-sufficiency and there have been increases in sponsorship and local contributions of in-kind goods and services.  The events have been well supported and enjoyed by residents from nearby suburbs and those further afield.

·     As a result of the changes in boundaries resulting from the latest local representation review. Sydenham now lies within the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Board area.  This notwithstanding, when approached to assisting with funding for the 2017 First Thursdays events, the Board recognised that the catchment of those benefitting from the events included Spreydon-Cashmere residents and approved a grant of $4,000 from its 2017/18 Discretionary Response fund towards two First Thursdays Sydenham events.

·     The first of this year’s events will be on 3 August 2017, themed “Dreamscapes”.  The second event is scheduled for 7 December 2017.

6.3       Infrastructure projects underway

6.3.1   Cashmere/Worsleys/Hoon Hay Roads Intersection Improvement.

·     In response to community concerns about the safety of the Cashmere/Worsleys/Hoon Hay Roads intersection, and in recognition of anticipated increased usage, the Council decided in September 2016 to fund intersection improvements.

·     Draft proposals have been prepared for improvements involving realignment and signalisation.  The proposals are expected to go out for consultation in late July.

6.4       Events Report Back

6.4.1   Spreydon-Cashmere Community Service Awards and Youth Service Awards 2017

·     Community Service Awards are presented annually to individuals and/or groups in recognition of significant voluntary service benefiting the local community.  Areas of activity may include sport, recreation, child or youth activities, older adults sector, disability sector, social and economic well-being, culture, church, education, and the physical environment.  Youth Service Awards are presented to those aged 25 and under.

·     The Spreydon-Cashmere Community Service and Youth Service Awards for 2017 were held at the Cashmere Club on Tuesday 27 June, from 5.30pm - 7.30pm.  This year, the Board presented awards for outstanding community service to 11 recipients, including one Youth Award.

·     As well as their framed certificate, each recipient was presented with flowers and a $50 gift voucher from the Board. In addition there was a number of gifts kindly donated by local businesses.

·     Following the event, a CD of photos from the award ceremony was posted to recipients.

·     There was a presentation of an award to two recipients unable to attend the event at the Board meeting held on 4 July 2017.
