1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to approve various traffic and parking changes, and to recommend that the Council approve engineering measures to support road safety in the vicinity of the relocated South Hornby School.  The school is due to open in the fourth term of 2017 on the former Branston Intermediate School site on Aymes Road.

10.       Approve that the parking of vehicles be restricted to a maximum period of three  minutes on the south west side of Amyes Road commencing at a point 45 metres south east of Branston Street and extending in a south easterly direction for a distance 17 metres.

That the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board recommends that the Council:

11.       Approve, in pursuance of the powers vested in it by Section 8.3(1) of the Land Transport Rule- Traffic Control Devices 2004 (Rule 54002), and pursuant to the powers vested in it by the Local Government Act 1974 and 2002, the Christchurch City Council hereby authorises the head teacher of the South Hornby School to appoint appropriately trained persons to act as school patrols at the Amyes Road school crossing point as shown in Attachment C, located at a point more or less 26 metres south east of its intersection with Branston Street.

 

 

3.   Key Points

3.1       This report supports the Council's Long Term Plan  (2015 - 2015)

3.1.1   Activity: Road Operations:

·     Level of Service: 10.0.31 Protect vulnerable users – minimise the number of fatal crashes involving pedestrians and cyclists.

·     Level of Service: 10.0.33 Reduce risk to customers using the network via a targeted programme of safety improvements at high risk locations.

3.1.2   Activity: Parking

·     Level of Service: 10.3.8 Optimise operational performance.

3.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 - Install School Speed Zone, Kea Crossing and P3 parking restrictions for South Hornby School (preferred option).

·     Option 2 - Do Nothing.

3.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

3.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Reduces the operational speed, improving safety in the area during the school hours.

·     The electronic speed zone signs enhance driver awareness of the likely presence of school children.

·     The Kea Crossing provides a supervised and safe crossing location for school children before and after school on Amyes Road.

·     Drop-off and pick-up parking provisions to support the school

3.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Removes two kerbside car parking spaces.

·     Short delay in traffic flow as vehicles have to stop to allow children to cross the road.

·     Minor impacts on access to properties adjacent to the Kea Crossing.

 

4.   Context/Background

4.1       South Hornby School is relocating to the former Branston Intermediate School site on Amyes Road and will open on Monday 16 October 2017. The school has recently requested that the school speed zone signs on Amyes Road be reinstated and a Kea Crossing be installed before the fourth term starts at the new site.

4.2       The Council has a commitment to improve road safety.  Reducing excessive vehicle speeds, where appropriate, outside schools during peak arrival and departure periods improves safety for children.  The Council has a programme of installing 40 kilometre per hour variable School Speed Zones outside schools according to a prioritisation process.  

4.3       When the former Branston Intermediate School was closed at the end of 2013, the school speed zone signs were removed by the Council, but this was not formally revoked.  Staff have made allowance for the reinstatement of the School Speed Zone in the current year budget for School Speed Zones. 

4.4       A Kea Crossing is a school patrol with swing out stop signs on a crossing point that does not have the zebra markings.  The New Zealand Police Education team is satisfied that this site is suitable for a Kea Crossing and can train the children to operate it. The Kea Crossing is complaint with the Lane Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004 and Council staff are satisfied the site is complementary for a Kea Crossing.

4.5       The Kea Crossing requires the removal of approximately two kerbside parking spaces. Kerbside parking demand in the site would be displaced further along Amyes Road.  There is ample parking along Amyes Road, but it is acknowledged that there will be additional parking demands at peak pick-up and drop-off times associated with the school, irrespective of the decisions arising from this report. 

 


 

5.   Option 1 - Install School Speed Zone, Kea Crossing and P3 Parking Restrictions (preferred)

Option Description

Reinstate school speed zone signs as shown in Attachment A, Install P3 parking restrictions as shown in Attachment B, Install school patrolled Kea Crossing as shown in Attachment C.

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

5.5       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

5.6       Property owners and residents at numbers 27, 42, 44, 46, 48 Amyes Road and South Hornby School were advised of the proposed Kea Crossing and the P3 parking restrictions option by letter. Refer to Attachment D for the consultation response summary.

5.7       Owners of numbers 42, 44 and 46 oppose the Kea Crossing and the P3 parking restrictions. The concerns raised are:

·   Difficulties reversing from driveways

·   Preference for pick-up and drop-off from Tower Street

·   Reduced parking

·   Trailer access to the property

5.8       The proposed location of the Kea Crossing is in close proximity to the driveways of 42 and 44 Amyes Road.  The location for the Kea Crossing is the single logical location for the Kea Crossing because of:

·   Alignment with anticipated pedestrian desire lines

·   Effective use of existing infrastructure

·   Minimise parking loss

·   Minimise impact on residential driveways

·   Suitable separation from the Branston Street/Amyes Road intersection

5.9       It is essential that buildouts are constructed on the south west side of Amyes Road to support the Kea Crossing.  Safety is compromised if the crossing length is greater than 10 metres, and the proposed buildouts reduce the crossing length to the necessary width.  This is a regulatory requirement under the Traffic Control Devices Rule. 

5.10    Any impacts of the construction of the buildouts on access to adjacent properties would be comparable to those that would occur if vehicles were parked on street adjacent to the driveways.  Staff will conduct a post construction safety audit once the Kea Crossing is operational (if approved) to identify any remediate any specific safety issues. 

5.11    Owners of number 27 (Hope Presbyterian Church) and 48 has no objection and support the proposal.

5.12    South Hornby School and New Zealand Police Education team support the proposal. South Hornby School received 88 signed petition from staff and parent community in support of the proposal.

5.13    Staff will consider drop-off and pick-up facilities on Tower Street once the school is open and the demand can be quantified. 

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

5.15    Cost of Implementation – approximately $25,000 for School Speed Zone; $48,000 for the Kea Crossing installation and $800 for P3 Parking Restrictions installation.

5.16    Maintenance/Ongoing Costs - Covered under the area maintenance contract.

5.17    Funding source – School Speed Zone Signage and Safe Routes to School budgets.

Legal Implications

5.18    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.

5.19    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 parking and stopping restrictions.  The Council has not delegated its powers to approve Kea Crossings. 

5.20    The installation of any signs and/or markings associated with traffic control devices must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004 and the New Zealand Gazette Notice (21-04-2011, Number 55, page 1284). 

Risks and Mitigations

5.21    Because there is no school operating from the site at present, it is difficult to predict behaviour and travel patterns.  This can be mitigated by:

·   Undertaking a post constructed safety audit of traffic engineering measures

·   Pupil education on the appropriate use of Kea Crossing equipment

·   Staff observations of school travel behaviour following opening

Implementation

5.22    Implementation dependencies - Community Board approval, dependent on endorsement by the Community Board and approval by the Council to formalise the Kea Crossing.

5.23    Implementation timeframe – Installed by 29 September 2017

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

5.24    The advantages of this option include:

·   It reduces the operational speed, therefore improves the safety in the area during the school hours.

·   The electronic speed zone signs enhance driver awareness of the likely presence of children.

·   A Kea Crossing provides a safe and convenient place to cross Amyes Road.

·   Convenient pick-up and drop-off provisions.

5.25    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Removes car parking.

·   Minor impacts on access to properties adjacent to the Kea Crossing.

6.   Option 2 - Do Nothing

Option Description

6.1       Maintain the status quo of the existing road marking and traffic controls. 

6.2       It is noted that this would be inconsistent with the existing resolution for a School Speed Zone on Amyes Road that would not be reinstated under this option. 

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       This option is not aligned with community support for road safety improvements to support the relocated school. 

6.6       This option does not specifically address the concerns of adjacent residents because the school will be relocated irrespective of the Board and Council decisions that this report relates to. 

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.8       Cost of Implementation – None

6.9       Maintenance/Ongoing Costs – Not applicable

6.10    Funding source – None

Legal Implications

6.11    Not applicable

Risks and Mitigations

6.12    This option does not address any road safety concerns associated with the relocation of the South Hornby School.  This can be mitigated by considering Option 1. 

Implementation

6.13    Implementation dependencies - Not applicable

6.14    Implementation timeframe - Not applicable

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.15    The advantages of this option include:

·   No additional cost to the Council.

6.16    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   It does not address the safety concerns of the school and that of the community.

5.   Context/Background

5.1       Staff have received a request from a local business at 221A Blenheim Road to convert some of the unrestricted parking at the rear building on Acheron Drive into loading zones. All existing on-street parking is occupied by staff for the duration of the working day, and businesses have difficulty unloading their goods directly into the rear entrance.

5.2       The current land-uses in the area generate a significant volume of goods vehicle activity in terms of deliveries and goods being taken away. This can often occur illegally by goods vehicles parking on the road to unload goods.


 

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

Option Description

Extend the P5 Loading Zone for Goods Vehicles Only restrictions outside the properties on Acheron Drive as shown Significance

6.2       The level of significance of this option is low and is consistent with section 2 of this report. Engagement requirements for this level of significance is low.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to approve  the granting of electrical easements in favour of Orion New Zealand Limited (Orion) over parts of the Council owned Ngā Puna Wai Reserve/Canterbury Agricultural Park (refer Attachment A).

1.2       The Board is also requested that should it approve the granting of the easements, to recommend to the Chief Executive that she exercise her authority as delegate of the Minister of Conservation to consent to the easements.  The Minister has delegated her authority to the Council, who have subsequently sub-delegated the authority to the Chief Executive.

Origin of Report

1.3       This report is being submitted to the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board in order to allow an easement so Orion can install electrical assets.  These will supply electricity to Stage 1 of the Ngā Puna Wai Sports Hub project currently under construction.  The area is a reserve subject to the Reserves Act 1977.  The Board has the delegated authority as the administering body to make a decision on the granting of the proposed easement. 

1.4       Under the Reserves Act, the administering body’s consent is subject to the consent of the Minister of Conservation.  The Minister has delegated this power to the Council.   The delegation from the Minister raised an expectation that the roles of the administering body will be kept separate from the role as Minister's delegate.  The Council has addressed this through making the Community Board's the administering body and the Chief Executive the Minister's delegate.

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 a significance and engagement assessment worksheet. 

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board resolve to:

1.         Approve pursuant to Section 48(1)(d) and Section 48(3)(a) and (b) of the Reserves Act 1977, the granting of easements giving Orion New Zealand Limited the right to convey electricity over the parts of Ngā Puna Wai Reserve shown on the submitted plan as Attachment A, subject to:

a.         The consent of the Minister of Conservation or her delegate.

b.         All necessary statutory consents under but not limited to the Resource Management Act and Building Control Act, being obtained.

2.         Recommend that the Chief Executive, using the Council’s delegated authority from the Minister of Conservation, consents to the granting of the easements to Orion New Zealand Limited for the right to convey electricity as outlined in the staff report.

3.         Authorise the Property Consultancy Manager, should the easements be granted with the consent of the Minister of Conservation, to finalise documentation to implement the easements.

 

4.   Key Points

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

4.1.1   Activity: Sports Parks

·     Level of Service: 7.1.1 Provide access to fit-for-purpose sports parks

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·   Option 1 - Grant an easement (preferred option).

·   Option 2 - Do not grant an easement.

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·   The easement will protect the infrastructure in perpetuity.

·   The easement will identify the existence of the electrical assets on the title.

·   Easement are required to comply with the Reserves Act 1977.

·   Supports Health and Safety by identifying the location of the utilities on the title.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Minor earthworks and temporary restrictions on the use of the reserve.

 

5.   Context/Background

Background

5.1       The Ngā Puna Wai Sports Hub, beside the Canterbury Agricultural Park, is the site of a new sports hub for Christchurch. It will combine facilities for a number of sporting disciplines including an athletics track, hockey turfs, outdoor tennis courts and rugby league and other community sports fields and play zones.  The facility replaces assets lost in the Canterbury earthquakes as well as catering for the growth of sport in the south-west region of Christchurch.  Construction of the Stage 1 facility will be progressively completed from delivery of the athletics track in March 2018 to final completion in May 2019. 

5.2       The project is dependent on the supply of electricity and easements are required to protect the electrical infrastructure.

Ngā Puna Wai Reserve

5.3       The proposed easements run through reserve land held in titles CB42C/1204, CB42C/1206 and 615524.   The legal descriptions are Lot 3 DP 73928, Lot 5 DP 73928 and Lot 342 DP 463578.  The land parcels are held by the Council as recreation reserve and local purpose esplanade and road reserve respectively.  All are subject to the Reserves Act 1977. 

5.4       The proposed easements do not impact on any other registered rights over the Council’s titles.

Easement

5.5       Section 48 of the Reserves Act 1977 (the Act) provides that the Council with the consent of the Minister of Conservation, may grant easements for rights-of-way and other services over reserve land. In this case, Section 48(1)(d) covers “an electrical installation or work, as defined in section 2 of the Electricity Act 1992”.

5.6       Under Section 48(2) of the Act, it is necessary for the Council to publically notify its intention to grant an easement except where the reserve is unlikely to be materially altered or permanently damaged, and the rights of the public in respect of the reserve are unlikely to be permanently affected (section 48(3) of the Act).  In this instance public notification is not required given that the installation of electrical assets is a small component of the sports hub works currently under construction on the reserve.  In this context the electrical easements proposed will have no material effect nor permanently affect the rights of the public in respect of the reserve.  Legal opinion to support this view has been provided to Council staff.

5.7       Attachment A shows the easement areas required.  These comprise areas A and  B (shown marked blue), and C (shown marked yellow):

·   A is a half kiosk and 500kVa outdoor transformer site (5 metres x 5.5 metres) – Stage 1

·   B is a half kiosk and 500kVa outdoor transformer site (5 metres x 7.5 metres) – Stage 2; and

·   C is a 3 metres wide easement for the underground 11kV cables, covering a length of approximately 600m2.

5.8       It is the normal policy of the Council that a one-off compensation fee, as determined by an independent valuation, is payable to the Council for the privilege of gaining an encumbrance on the Council’s title. (Council 27 September 2001.) However in this case, no compensation applies because the easement is being installed for Council purposes.

5.9       The works will be undertaken by a suitably qualified contractor who will comply with all Health and Safety regulations in accordance with best practice. The contractor will be determined by a tender process.

The effects on the reserve will be more than minor with some disruption during construction.  However the reserve will experience greater disruption as the overall works associated with the sports hub project progress.  These will transform the reserve to the extent that the effects of the electrical easement will be negligible in comparison.

Consent of the Minister of Conservation

5.10    In exercising the consent of the Minister of Conservation, the Council should be satisfied that due procedure has been followed and in this respect the Council should have regard to the following matters:

5.10.1 The land affected by the application is a reserve subject to the provisions of the Reserves Act 1977.

5.10.2 The easement being applied for falls within the purposes specified in Section 48(1) of the Reserves Act.

5.10.3 The provisions of Section 48(2) (public notification) have been complied with or that a waiver can be given to this requirement under Section 48(3).

5.10.4 Section 4 of the Conservation Act 1987 (this Act shall be interpreted and administered as to give effect to the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi) meaning that in consenting to transactions under the Reserves Act 1977, consideration is to be given to the requirement or otherwise to consult with iwi.

5.11    It is confirmed that the subject land has reserve status, held in titles CB42C/1204, CB42C/1206 and 615524 for recreation reserve, and local purpose esplanade and road reserve purposes respectively.  Section 48(1) of the Act allows the Council to grant rights-of-way and other easements over any part of the reserve for any electrical installation work (section 48(1) (d)).  The public notification of the proposed easement is not required by virtue of Section 48(3) of the Act.

5.12    Specific consultation with iwi is not considered necessary as the site affected does not feature in the City Plan as having any significance to tangata whenua and the proposal is believed to be consistent with the framework of the Mahaanui Iwi Management Plan (MIMP) as the proposed earthworks activities will be minimal.

6.   Option 1 - Staff Recommendation (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Adopt the staff recommendation (grant the easement on the conditions stipulated).

Significance

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

6.3       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are appropriate.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.4       This option does 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

6.5       No one is specifically affected by this option due to there being no adverse impacts on the reserve.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.7       Cost of Implementation – negligible, staff time.

6.8       Maintenance/Ongoing Costs – responsibility of Orion New Zealand Limited.

6.9       Funding source – 492/3020.  It is confirmed this is budgeted for and funding is available in the Long Term Plan, page 206, item 2174 Funding for Community Facilities Nga Puna Wai Hub Infrastructure.

Legal Implications

6.10    Section 48(1)(d) of the Reserves Act 1977 enables the Council, with the consent of the Minister of Conservation, to grant easements over public reserves, in this case for electrical installation work.

Risks and Mitigations   

6.11    The proposal is a permitted activity under the City Plan rules, current and proposed.

6.12    Risk project delay caused by easement not being granted.

6.12.1 Residual risk rating - the rating of the risk is low.

Implementation

6.13    Implementation dependencies - no known dependencies

6.14    Implementation timeframe - three to four months. The works are scheduled to commence late October 2017, and to be completed within 3 to 4 months.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.15    The advantages of this option include:

·   The easement will protect the infrastructure in perpetuity.

·   The easement will identify the existence of the electrical assets on the title.

·   An easement is required to comply with the Reserves Act 1977.

·   Supports Health and Safety by identifying the location of the utilities on the title.

6.16    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Minor earthworks and temporary restrictions on the use of the reserve.

7.   Option 2 - Decline application

Option Description

7.1       Decline the application, namely, do not approve the grant of an electrical easement as requested.

Significance

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

7.3       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are appropriate.

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.4       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

7.5       Potential users of the Ngā Puna Wai Sports Hub facility will be disappointed if its provision is thwarted by an inadequate electrical supply.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.6       This option is inconsistent with the Council’s Plans and Policies.

7.6.1   Inconsistency - the proposed easement is a critical part of the Ngā Puna Wai Sports Hub project in the Long Term Plan. 

7.6.2   Reason for inconsistency – the Ngā Puna Wai Sports Hub project cannot proceed without the easement which ensures the supply of electricity.

7.6.3   Amendment necessary – If the project cannot proceed it will need to be removed from the Long Term Plan.

Financial Implications

7.7       Cost of Implementation - not applicable

7.8       Maintenance/Ongoing Costs - Maintenance costs for Ngā Puna Wai Reserve are unchanged.

7.9       Funding source – 492/3020.  It is confirmed this is budgeted for and funding is available in the Long Term Plan, page 206, item 2174 Funding for Community Facilities Nga Puna Wai Hub Infrastructure.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is to advise the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board on the outcome of community consultation and to request that the Board approve those parts of the attached scheme plan and tree removals, for which the Board has delegated authority, and to recommend to the Council that it approves the traffic controls and special vehicle lanes to allow the installation of a traffic signal controlled intersection where Augustine Drive and Halswell Road (SH75) meet.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated for the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board following the consultation process. The Board was previously advised of the project at a Seminar held on 13 December 2016.

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.

2.2       The level of significance was determined by the significance matrix and in particular factors including the relatively small area affected by the proposal in relation to the Christchurch District, and the limited impacts on the capacity of the Council to carry out its role and functions.

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

1.1.1

4.   Key Points

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

4.1.1   Activity: Road Operations

·     Level of Service: 10.0.1 Provide journey reliability on specific strategic routes

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 (preferred option) – Signalised intersection: Upgrade of the Augustine Road/Halswell Road (SH75) intersection from a priority controlled T-intersection to a four-arm signal controlled crossroads intersection.

·     Option 2 – Do nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

1.1.2          The advantages of this option include:

·     Enables the opening of the new Southwest Village Key Activity Centre (KAC) and Halswell Commons development in accordance with Outline Development Plan.

·     Creates safe crossings for pedestrians and cyclists.

·     Provides the safest and most cost effective option for control of vehicles, accounting for the Halswell Commons, and Nga Puna Wai developments.

·     New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) has endorsed the scheme design and are processing the required approvals for the state highway part of works.

1.1.3          The disadvantages of this option include:

·     May result in some drivers on the north side of Halswell Road seeking alternative routes through residential roads to access the traffic signals due to delays that occur on the adjacent Aidanfield Drive/Halswell Road intersection.

·     Potential for minor delays to traffic on Halswell Road.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       Background

·   The rezoning of the land bounded by Halswell Road/Milns Road/Sparks Road/Hendersons Road to residential and commercial was a result of the Christchurch Replacement District Plan process that produced the Halswell North Outline Development Plan (ODP) for the area.

·   The ODP and associated rules for the area (known as Halswell Commons) includes a requirement that the intersection of Augustine Drive with Halswell Road be controlled by signals before the Key Activity Centre (KAC) can be open to the public.  Rule 15.2.4.3.2.2 -Intersection upgrades clearly states ‘No retail activity within the Commercial Core Zone (North Halswell) shall be open to the public until the construction of the upgrade of the intersection of Augustine Drive and Halswell Road to traffic lights has been completed’. 

·   The intersection also provides the major access to the Council’s Nga Puna Wai Reserve. Therefore, the Council has entered into an agreement with the developer of Halswell Commons (Danne Mora Holdings Limited) to cost share the design and construction of the signals.  Halswell Road is a state highway and NZTA have been involved in the development of the scheme design.

·   The KAC is programmed for Stage 1 to open in 2018.  To meet the requirements of the District Plan ODP, the intersection of Augustine Drive/Halswell Road needs to be controlled by signals.

·   Stage 1 of the Council’s development for the Nga Puna Wai Sports Complex is also programmed to be completed and open to the public at the end of 2017/early 2018, with Stage 2 proposed to start soon afterwards. 

·   The KAC will be accessed from the new leg of the intersection.  Construction of this road, named Monsaraz Boulevard, is expected to begin later this year and the first stage of the KAC is scheduled to open in 2018.

Scheme Description

5.2       Transport Network and Plans

·   Halswell Road (SH75) is a state highway from Curletts Road heading south-west (SH75) through Halswell and out to Tai Tapu and beyond.

·   Halswell Road is an arterial road with an annual average daily traffic (AADT) volume of approximately 22,000 vehicles.  The speed limit on the Halswell Road south approach currently changes just prior to Augustine Drive from 80 kilometres per hour to 50 kilometres per hour. The speed limit on the Halswell Road north approach is 50 kilometres per hour.

·   There are existing on-road cycle lanes marked on the state highway, and areas of shared path to the north of the intersection that were implemented as part of the Templetons Road closure. 

·   Augustine Drive is a local road providing access to the Nga Puna Wai Reserve.

·   The land located between Hendersons Road/Halswell Road/Milns Road/Sparks Road was initially identified as suitable for residential development in the South West Area Plan (SWAP) in 2009.  An assessment of the traffic and transport effects of the proposed rezoning in the South West Area Plan Transport Assessment (SWAPTA) and future transport improvements required to support future rezoning of other land in the south west Christchurch area was completed.  The plan recognised the new streets to be formed (Augustine and Monsaraz) and that the intersection be controlled by traffic signals (Figure 8.4 of SWAPTA).

 

SWAPTA – New infrastructure

6.   Option 1 – Signalised Intersection (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Upgrade of the Augustine Road/Halswell Road (SH75) intersection from a priority controlled T-intersection to a four-arm signal controlled crossroads intersection.

Significance

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

6.3       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are to ensure that those most likely to be impacted by the proposal have an opportunity to comment.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.4       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.

6.5       The North Halswell ODP for the area and associated rules for the KAC and Halswell Commons development require that the intersection of Augustine Drive with Halswell Road must be controlled by traffic signals before the initial stage of the development of the KAC opens to the public.  This work is now underway.

6.6       Concept plans for a new signalised intersection at the corner of Halswell Road, Augustine Drive and the new Monsaraz Boulevard intersection were presented to the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board Seminar on 13 December 2016.

6.7       When the proposed plan for traffic signals went out for consultation on 8 June 2017, the leaflet stated that most elements of the intersection design – apart from the proposed removal of the pedestrian island on Halswell Road, on-road changes related to the traffic signals, and tree removals/relocations, had been incorporated in the ODP, or already approved.  However, the leaflet also noted that the proposed signals were a significant change on this section of the roading network and any comments would be considered by the Council.

6.8       More than 600 information leaflets were delivered to residents in the vicinity of the intersection, or posted to absentee property owners, key stakeholders, libraries and service centres.  The link to the Have Your Say information was also emailed to stakeholders, including groups who use the Nga Puna Wai Sports Complex.

6.9       During the consultation period which ended on 29 June 2017, a survey identified that two additional trees would need to be removed from the road reserve outside the properties at numbers 2 Templetons Road, 1/198 and 2/198 Halswell Road, and 200 and 200B Halswell Road.  Residents and an absentee property owner were advised of this change on 26 June 2017 and invited to phone the Council if they had any questions.

6.10    Twenty six submissions were received for this project.  Nine of these were generally positive about the proposed signalised intersection, with references to smoother traffic flow and improved safety for pedestrians and cyclists.

6.11    Ten submitters raised issues or questions about traffic impacts at the Halswell Road/Henderson Road intersection, where traffic backs up at peak hours.

6.12    The Halswell Residents’ Association and two other submitters said the closure of Hendersons Road should proceed as previously planned.  Submitters were advised that Hendersons Road is not being closed as part of this project, this project being limited to the Augustine Drive intersection.  The final design and operation of the Halswell Road/Hendersons Road intersection, is still being considered by the Council and the New Zealand Transport Agency, as the road controlling authorities.

6.13    Four submitters who commented on the dual carriageway at the proposed signalised Augustine Drive intersection were advised that four lanes will help maintain traffic flow through the intersection.

6.14    The Halswell Residents’ Association and two other submitters, also asked for additional spare ducts for utilities and free left turns on all sides of the intersection.  Additional ducts will be considered during the detailed design phase of the project.  Free left turns were not incorporated in the consultation plan or the plan for approval due to the safety issues and delays that would be incurred if installed.

6.15    A request for left turning by cyclists from Augustine Drive onto Halswell Road can be accommodated by including a kerb cut-down allowing them to join the shared path toward the city centre.

6.16    Two submitters concerned about increased traffic on Euphrasie Drive were advised that traffic movements would be monitored after the implementation of traffic signals and the Nga Puna Wai Sports Complex, and any changes to address increases in volumes or speeds would be reviewed, if necessary.

6.17    The following issues are outside the scope of this project but those relating to the Halswell Corridor, and bus travel, will be forwarded to the New Zealand Transport Agency, Environment Canterbury or to the appropriate Council units:

6.17.1       Suggested changes by submitters to the speed limit on Halswell Road (managed by the New Zealand Transport Agency, the road controlling authority);

6.17.2       A roundabout at the Halswell Road/Aidanfield Drive intersection;

6.17.3       A double lane roundabout the Halswell Road/Aidanfield Drive intersection;

6.17.4       Signals at Halswell Road/Aidanfield Drive intersection;

6.17.5       Dual lane carriageway from Dunbars Road to Hendersons Road;

6.17.6       Four temporary lanes on Augustine Drive during Show Day and major sports events;

6.17.7       Cycleway incorporated on western side of intersection;

6.17.8       Need for bus priority or bus lanes on both sides of Halswell Road from Dunbars Road to Moorhouse Avenue;

6.17.9       Bus stops between Augustine Drive and Aidanfield Drive; and

6.17.10     The name of the Halswell Commons subdivision (the naming of the subdivision is the responsibility of the developer).

6.18    As a result of consultation, the following change has been made to the plan for approval - A kerb cut-down to allow cyclists to turn left from Augustine Drive onto the shared part adjacent to Halswell Road.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.20    Cost of Implementation – costs are shared between CCC and the developer as set out in the Private Development Agreement dated 29 May 2017. CCC share is $1,583,634 as defined in the Council’s Long Term Plan.

6.21    Maintenance/Ongoing Costs - Covered under the Area Maintenance Contract and the effects will be minimal to the overall asset.

6.22    Funding source – the Council share of construction funding is provided in Financial Year 2019 of the LTP. CCC share will need to be brought back to financial year 2018 to ensure construction is completed prior to opening of the KAC. A Private Development Agreement, dated 29 May 2017, has been entered into with the developer for their share.

Legal Implications

6.23    An “Agreement for Delegation for Design and Construction of Augustine Drive and Halswell Road/State Highway 75 Intersection Signalisation” between CCC and NZTA has been signed on 4 April 2007.

6.24    A Private Development Agreement, dated 29 May 2017, has been entered into with the developer.

6.25    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 on CCC controlled roads.

6.26    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 parking restrictions, traffic control devices, traffic islands and pedestrian crossings.  The Community Board does not have delegations for the Special Vehicle Lanes or traffic signals, so these are made as a recommendation to the Council. 

6.27    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

6.28    The key risk for this project is having the signals installed in time that the developer is not delayed in the opening of the KAC. Currently this is 1 June 2018 in the agreement. The Council’s sign off of this report will allow construction to be completed by May 2018.

Implementation

6.29    Implementation dependencies - Approval by the Community Board, Council and NZTA.

6.30    Implementation timeframe - Construction of the signalised crossing is planned to start in the last quarter of 2017.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.31    The advantages of this option include:

·   Enables the opening of the new Southwest Village Key Activity Centre (KAC) and Halswell Commons development in accordance with the ODP.

·   Creates safe crossings for pedestrians and cyclists.

·   Provides the safest and most cost effective option for the control of vehicles, accounting for the Halswell Commons, and Nga Puna Wai developments.

·   NZTA have endorsed the scheme design and are processing the required approvals for state highway part of works.

6.32    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   May result in some drivers on the north side of Halswell Road seeking alternative routes through residential roads to access the traffic signals due to delays that occur on the adjacent Aidanfield Drive/Halswell Road intersection.

·   Potential for minor delays to traffic on Halswell Road.

7.   Option 2 – Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1       The ODP was incorporated into the Replacement District Plan and Section 15.4.5.2.2 a. states that “no retail activity within the Commercial Core Zone (North Halswell) shall be open to the public until the construction of the upgrade of the intersection of Augustine Drive and Halswell Road to traffic lights has been completed”. Signals are also agreed in the referenced Agreement for Delegation of Design and Construction with NZTA dated 4 April 2017, and the referenced Private Development Agreement with the developer dated 29 May 2017. As such, a do nothing option has not been pursued as the developer expects the KAC to be meeting the need for intersection signalisation by 1 June 2018.

Significance

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

7.3       The level of significance was determined by the significance matrix and in particular factors including the level of impact on the developer and possible risks to the Council.

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.4       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

7.5       This option was not consulted on because it does not meet the requirements of the ODP and District Plan.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.6       This option is inconsistent with the Council’s Plans and Policies.

1.1.4          Reason for inconsistency – Option does not signalise the intersection as required in the ODP and District Plan.

1.1.5          Amendment necessary – See preferred option.

Financial Implications

7.7       The CCC share of $1,583,634 as defined in the Council’s Long Term Plan would not be used, apart from what has been spent to date, (less than $100,000).

Legal Implications

7.8       Does not meet requirements in the ODP and District Plan.

Risks and Mitigations

7.9       The key risks for the do nothing option is that the developer would not be able to open the KAC as approved in the ODP and District Plan.

Implementation

7.10    There are no changes required.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.11    The advantages of this option include:

·   There are no advantages to this option.

7.12    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Development will not be able to open the KAC as approved in the ODP and District Plan.

1.   Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to establish the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton  Youth Development Fund 2017-18, and the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Off the Ground Fund 2017-18.

 

2.   Staff Recommendations

That the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board resolve to:

1.         Approve the establishment of the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton 2017-18 Youth Development Fund and allocate $3,000 from the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton 2017-18 Discretionary Response Fund to the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton 2017-18 Youth Development Fund.

2.         Approve the establishment of the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton 2017-18 Off the Ground Fund and its associated criteria.

3.         Delegate authority to a minimum of four (4) Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board members to consider and make decisions (via email) on applications received for the Off the Ground Fund according to the fund criteria, and approve grants up to a maximum of $400 per application. (The majority vote of members replying (by email) within two (2) working days shall form the basis of the decision).

 

3.   Key Points

3.1       Each of the Community Boards will be delegated authority to distribute a funding envelope under Community Grants Funding Priorities and Outcomes.  These priorities were developed from the key challenges to Building Strong Communities identified in the 2009-19 Long Term Plan.  (refer  Attachment 1)

3.2       Each Community Board will have the authority to allocate funds under a Strengthening Communities Fund and a Discretionary Response Fund.  Boards may also establish other funds targeted at specific community needs.  In 2016-17, the Riccarton-Wigram and Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board also had a Youth Development Fund and an Off the Ground Fund. The amounts in each fund are determined by the Board.  Community Boards will also be able to determine how much is placed into both the Strengthening Communities Fund and the Discretionary Response Fund.

3.3       The amount that the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board has to allocate will be determined at a Council meeting in August 2017.  This amount is expected to be no less than the amounts that the Community Board had to allocate in 2016-17 as well as the amount that was allocated to the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton projects funded as Key Local Projects under the Metropolitan Strengthening Communities Funding Scheme.

3.4       In 2016-17, the funding for allocation by the Riccarton-Wigram/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board was $526,821; broken down as follows:

· 2016-17 Strengthening Communities Fund (Riccarton-Wigram)                               $238,918

· 2016-17 Small Grants Fund (Riccarton-Wigram)                                                                 $55,000

· 2016-17 Discretionary Response Fund (Riccarton-Wigram)                                           $25,550

· 2016-17 Discretionary Response Fund (Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton)                       $104,353

· 2016-17 Key Local Projects                                                                                                       $103,000

3.5       Staff are recommending that the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton 2017-18 Youth Development and Off the Ground Funds again be established.  Furthermore, staff are recommending an initial allocation of $3,000 to the Youth Development Fund from the Discretionary Response Fund to start the fund off for the 2017-18 year with a further allocation to be made once the final amounts have been confirmed.  This will allow applications already received for projects in the near future to be considered.  As there is a carryover of $1,600 from the 2016-17 Off the Ground Fund, staff consider this will be sufficient to start this fund.

3.6       The Community Board will be asked to decide on the splits between the 2017-18 Strengthening Communities Fund and the 2017-18 Discretionary Response Fund in a later report.

4.   Discretionary Response Fund

4.1       The Discretionary Response Fund is to assist community groups where the project and funding request falls outside other Council funding criteria and/or closing dates.  It is also for emergency funding for unforeseen situations. 

4.2       The Discretionary Response Fund can also be used to fund Board initiated, Council-staff delivered projects such as (but not limited to) Community Service and Garden Pride Awards and Culture Galore.  The Community Board is also able to utilise this fund to set up other funds such as the Youth Development Fund and the Off the Ground Fund.  The Discretionary Response Fund operates differently at a metropolitan and local level.

4.3       In 2016, the Council set exclusions that Local (Community Board) Discretionary Response Funds will not cover, namely:

4.3.1   Activities or initiatives where the primary purpose is to promote religious ministry, political objectives or commercial profit orientated interests

4.3.2   Projects or initiatives that will lead to ongoing operational costs to the Christchurch City Council

4.3.3   Debt servicing or re-financing costs

4.3.4   Stock or capital market investment

4.3.5   Gambling or prize money

4.3.6   Payment of fines or court costs

4.3.7   Payment for IRD penalties or retrospective tax payments 

5.   Youth Development Fund

5.1       The purpose of the Youth Development Fund is to celebrate and support young people living in the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton wards by providing financial assistance for their development. The Community Board also seeks to acknowledge young peoples’ efforts, achievements and potential excellence in the community. The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board considered the criteria in February 2017 and as such this is reflected in 6.2 to 6.4 below.

5.2       The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Youth Development Fund will enable the Board to consider applications for the following activities:

5.2.1   Personal Development and Growth - for example, leadership training, career development, Outward Bound, Spirit of Adventure, extra-curricular educational opportunities, social enterprise activities and projects both local and national initiatives.

5.2.2   Representation at Events - applicants can apply for assistance if they have been selected to represent their school, team or community at a local, national or international event or competition.  This includes sporting, cultural and community events.  

5.3       The following eligibility criteria must be met:

5.3.1   Age groups 10 to 25 years.

5.3.2   Projects must have obvious benefits for the young person, and if possible the wider community.

5.3.3   Only one application per person permitted per year.

5.3.4   Applicants should be undertaking other fundraising activities and not relying solely on Community Board support.

5.4       Successful applicants will be required to report back to the Community Board on their experiences.

5.5       Each application will be assessed by the appropriate staff member and presented to the Board in a report for its consideration.  The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Youth Development Application Form is attached.

6.   Off the Ground Fund

6.1       The Off the Ground Fund acts as a quick response fund in allocating grants for small community projects.  The grant purpose is to benefit people living in the wards and may include such things as planting vacant land, tidying up vacant areas, constructing small local commemorations, community building events, skip days, displays and activities which aim to bring communities together, inform communities and strengthen communities.

6.2       The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board is therefore being invited to re-establish a 2017-18 Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Off The Ground Fund derived from its 2016-17 Discretionary Response Fund.

The proposed fund criteria and the decision making process is as follows:

6.2.1   The Board intends to establish the 2017-18 Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Off The Ground Fund.

6.2.2   The purpose of the Fund is to provide the community with access to small grants for small community projects.

6.2.3   The project must benefit people living in the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton wards.

6.2.4   Applications are to be made on a Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Off The Ground Fund Application Form.  An information sheet will be designed to publicise the Fund.

6.2.5   Applications must be applied for by one resident, group or organisation, providing contact details, location of the project and a short description of what the project will involve.  Funding will not be considered for projects already undertaken.

6.2.6   Funding may be granted for each application up to a maximum of $400.

6.2.7   Grant requests will be administered through the Council’s Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Governance Team.  Staff recommendations and a copy of the application will be circulated (by email) to Board members for consideration and decision making.

6.2.8   The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board will delegate authority for the making of a decision on the allocation of the grants to at least four (4) Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board members by way of email responses with the majority view being actioned from Board members responding within two working days.

6.2.9   Successful projects will be funded after receipts of expenditure have been submitted.  Expenditure must be made after the application for funding is made.  However, if an applicant wishes to have the granted amount made available, after the decision, but prior to expenditure, this request should be made at the time of application.

6.2.10 All applications will still have to meet the criteria requirements of the Discretionary   Response Fund.

6.3       Details of grant allocations made will be provided to the Board for information and record purposes through the monthly Area Report.

6.4       As there is a carry-over of $1,600 from the 2016-17 Off the Ground Fund staff are not recommending any funding allocation to the fund at this time.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to consider twelve applications received for funding from the Board's 2017-18 Youth Development Fund.

Through participating in a series of outdoor activities the course aims to challenge participants' physical and mental fitness and strength with a focus on independence and a positive mind set to be applied to everyday life.

5.3       Josh hopes the course will benefit him through gaining more confidence and leadership skills. In particular Josh would like to improve his ability to convey ideas, reflect and become better at active listening. In future, Josh aspires to become a medical doctor and he believes this course will give him valuable skills which he can use in his future training towards this goal.

5.4       Josh currently volunteers at the Anthony Wilding Retirement Village as part of his service activity for the Duke of Edinburgh Award. He believes the Mind Body Soul course will help him better interact with his colleagues there, and become more socially skilled, aware and confident allowing him to better support the elderly people he works with.

5.5       Josh also has a range of other activities he regularly participates in for self-development. He is a member of the Chapel Choir of Christ's College and is currently practising for the Big Sing Finale which takes place in August. Josh also plays basketball for school and trains at the United Canterbury Badminton Club three hours a week. Josh attends Avon Toastmasters once a week to improve his public speaking skills and is a member of the Senior Service Committee at Christ's College through which he helps to organize fundraisers.
