1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board to make its recommendation to the Head of Parks on the granting of approval to Bishopdale Tennis Club Incorporated to install court lighting within its lease area on Bishopdale Park.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated at the request of the Bishopdale Tennis Club Incorporated.

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 staff completing an assessment of significance.

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board:

3.1       Recommend that the Head of Parks approve the application by the Bishopdale Tennis Club Incorporated to install fourteen new lighting poles on Bishopdale Park, as shown in Attachment A of the agenda, subject to:

a.         The applicant obtaining any necessary resource consents, and building consents, at its cost, before commencing installation of the lighting system on the park.

b.         The applicant being required to deposit scaled as-built plans, as per Council’s Infrastructure Design Standards, within two months of the work being completed.

c.         The applicant being responsible for all costs associated with the installation, insurance, operation, maintenance, and any future removal, of the lighting system.

d.         The applicant being responsible for ensuring that the lighting system is maintained and operated in a safe condition.

e.         The approval and use of the lighting being subject to the following conditions:

i.          The court lights may be used on five evenings per week (Monday to Friday) during the non-daylight savings winter period between the hours of 5.00pm and 9.00pm. 

ii.         For the first 12 months of operation, the use of the lights on the 3 tennis courts closest to the Leacroft Street road frontage will be further limited to a cut-off time of 7.30pm.

iii.        The Club is to keep records of the days and hours of use of the courts during this 12 month period, to be provided to Council on request.

iv.        The use of the lights on the 3 tennis courts in 1(e)(ii) above is to be reviewed by Council staff at 2 monthly intervals with provision to amend use as appropriate in response to any issues arising from that use.

The use of the lights on all 6 courts is to be reviewed by Council staff after 12 months of operation.

f.          The light spill and glare from the lights is to be checked for compliance with the Christchurch City Plan rules on site by Council’s Environmental Health Team during the first week of operation of the lights.

The approval lapsing if the development is not completed within two years of the approval date.

 

 

4.   Key Points

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

4.1.1   Activity: Neighbourhood Parks

·     Level of Service: 6.0.2 Customer satisfaction with the range of recreation facilities

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Approve the installation of tennis court lighting subject to usage conditions (preferred option).

·     Option 2 – Maintain the status quo and decline the application.

 

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     The Club will be able to increase its coaching programmes, organised games and casual use by members, although during the initial period of operation, this will not be to the level originally sought.

·     An earlier cut-off time for some of the courts, along with monitoring and review of their use, will reduce potential disturbance to neighbours, and enable the Club and Council to respond in a timely manner to address any issues.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     The Club may not be able to achieve its desired goals in terms of coaching, organised games, and casual use.

·     The Club may not be able to undertake the proposed night time coaching and games to the extent anticipated for maximum utilisation of the facilities.

·     Approval of the proposed lighting with restrictions on the level of use of some courts may not be acceptable to the respondent.

·     There may still be disturbance to surrounding neighbours.

 

 

5.   Context/Background

Background to Bishopdale Tennis Club application

5.1       Bishopdale Tennis Club Incorporated (the Club) have a lease over approximately 4715 square metres of Lot 3 DP28874, a Recreation Reserve under the Reserves Act 1977, that is part of Bishopdale Park.

5.2       The lease is for the Permitted Use of “Tennis Club and associated Activities”, and has a final expiry date of 31 December 2043. The lease are currently contained six tennis courts and a clubroom building.

5.3       The Club first approached Council with a proposal to install court lighting in February 2015. An amended application, with an increased number of lit courts but an improved lighting design, was submitted in December 2016. 

 

6.   Option 1 - Approve the installation of tennis court lighting subject to usage conditions (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Recommend that the Head of Parks approve the installation of 14 new lighting poles by Bishopdale Tennis Club Inc. on Bishopdale Park, subject to usage conditions.

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 not required, however given the proximity of the proposed lighting to neighbouring properties, staff have undertaken public consultation to inform the decision-making process.

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.

Community Views and Preferences

6.5       The wider Christchurch community are not specifically affected by this option due to the lighting application only affecting the immediate area around the Bishopdale Tennis Club premises. Consultation on the lighting proposal was carried out with the local community 7 to 25 August 2017.

6.6       Information leaflets were hand delivered to approximately 120 households in the immediate vicinity of the Club, and posted to 6 other identified key stakeholders. 

6.7       One respondent contacted staff by phone about the proposal and their concerns related to the following:

·    Even though the light spill is compliant with the Christchurch City Plan rules for light spill and glare, they believe light will still spill over across their driveway and into their bedrooms. One of the lights in particular will reflect on the rear of their house where the bedrooms are located. They are concerned about potential disturbance to their sleep, and psychological and other health effects on them as older persons. They are concerned that the lighting will affect the re-sale value of their property.

·    They are concerned about safety in relation to increased traffic, affecting children and visitors from other suburbs, children using play facilities in Bishopdale Park, and children and other visitors attending functions and events in the adjoining rugby league club premises.

Staff responses to issues raised by the respondent

6.8       Staff offered to facilitate a discussion between the respondent and the Club, with Council’s Environmental Health Officer, and Parks Unit Policy Advisor, in attendance, and another meeting with only Council staff present. The respondent declined due to health issues.

6.9       The proposed lighting is fully compliant with the Christchurch City Plan rules for light spill and glare, therefore should have no greater than minor adverse effects on the neighbouring properties in this respect. However to mitigate concerns raised, staff have proposed, and the Club have agreed, that the operation of the lights on the three courts closest to the road frontage is restricted to fewer hours, and the situation is monitored by Council during the first 12 months of operation, and reviewed as necessary.

6.10    The lighting of the tennis courts is likely to increase vehicle traffic to and from the Club during the evenings in winter, however there have been no traffic compliance matters identified with respect to the provisions of the Christchurch City Plan.  It is considered unlikely that this traffic would affect the play facilities in Bishopdale Park as, again, this is during dark winter evenings, when the facilities should not be in use. A separate parcel of land owned by a rugby league club separates the Club’s lease area from the remainder of Bishopdale Park, with the driveway access and parking shared by both parties. It is considered that any potential user conflicts in the car-parks can be satisfactorily manged by the respective clubs. The rugby league club has not expressed any concerns about the lighting of the courts.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.12    Cost of Implementation – There is no cost to Council other than staff time which is covered by operational budgets.

6.13    Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – There are no costs to Council as the lights will be owned, operated and maintained by the Club. 

6.14    Funding source – Not applicable.

Legal Implications

6.15    The proposed lighting is consistent with the Permitted Use of “Tennis Club and associated Activities” in the First Schedule of the Club’s lease.

6.16    Clause 6.1 of the Club’s lease stipulates that no buildings, fences or other structures shall be erected on or under the Land without the prior written consent of the Lessor.

6.17    The Head of Parks has delegated authority from Council (27 May 2016) to approve applications for flood lights on sports parks/courts, subject to the necessary resource consents and consultation with the appropriate Community Board.

6.18    The Club has applied for a resource consent (RMA/2017/2030) for the installation of the proposed lighting, which must be approved prior to the commencement of installation.

6.19    The Club will be required to obtain a building consent, if needed, prior to commencing installation of the lights.

Risks and Mitigations   

6.20    There is a risk that this option will not be acceptable to the respondent to the public consultation.

Implementation

6.21    Implementation dependencies - Recommendation from the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board to the Head of Parks to approve the lighting; Approval of the new lighting by the Head of Parks.

6.22    Implementation timeframe – Completion of letter of approval by Head of Parks after recommendation from the Community Board.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.23    The advantages of this option include:

·   The Club will be able to increase its coaching programmes, organised games, and casual use by members, although during the initial period of operation, this will not be to the level originally sought.

·   An earlier cut-off time for some of the courts, along with monitoring and review of tier use, will reduce potential disturbance to neighbours, and enable the Club and Council to respond in a timely manner to address any issues. 

6.24    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   The Club may not be able to achieve its desired goals in terms of coaching, organised games, and casual use.

·   The Club may not be able to undertake proposed night time coaching and games to the extent anticipated for maximum utilisation of the facilities.

·   Approval of the proposed lighting with restrictions on the level of use of some courts may not be acceptable to the respondent.

·   There may still be disturbance to surrounding neighbours.


 

 

7.   Option 2 – Maintain the status quo and decline the application

Option Description

7.1       Maintain the status quo and decline the application

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 not required.

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 as the status quo would result in no changes to the existing tennis facility.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

7.7       Cost of Implementation – Not applicable.

7.8       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – Not applicable.

7.9       Funding source – Not applicable.

Legal Implications

7.10    There are no legal implications for this option.

Risks and Mitigations    

7.11    There is a risk that the Club will not find this option acceptable.

Implementation

7.12    Implementation dependencies - Not applicable.

7.13    Implementation timeframe – Not applicable.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.14    The advantages of this option include:

·   Reserve neighbours may have less disturbance from light, noise and traffic movements generated by the Club.

·   The respondent who raised concerns about the installation of lighting will be satisfied.

7.15    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   The Club will not be able to achieve its desired goals in terms of coaching, organised games, and casual use.

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: 10.0.31 Protect vulnerable users - minimise the number of fatal crashes involving pedestrians and cyclists

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 - Install 40 kilometres per hour Variable Speed Limit (preferred option)

·     Option 2 – Do nothing.

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Likely reduction in operational speed, therefore improving the safety in the area during the school hours.

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

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Increased amount of signage on the traffic route.

 

5.   Context/Background

Background

5.1       Traffic Operation team have an ongoing programme of installing 40 kilometres per hour Variable Speed Limits outside schools. The signs operate for short periods before and after school, and aim to reduce vehicle speeds at times when on-road school related activity is high - making it safer for school children to cross busy roads near their school.

5.2       Potential sites must meet a specified criteria set by New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) and are prioritised using  a methodology process endorsed by Council on 25 August 2011 as the most appropriate method of improving road safety outside certain schools, where no other traffic control device(s) are practical or feasible.

5.3       A 40 kilometres per hour Variable Speed Limit on Breens Road outside Breens Intermediate ranks as a priority for implementation in the 2017/2018 financial year.

5.4       The proposed 40 kilometres per hour Variable Speed Limit meets the warrant and control method criteria specified by NZTA.

5.5       Breens Road is classified a collector route with an average weekday traffic volume of around 3,000 vehicles and an 85th percentile speed of 55.8km/h.

5.6       As shown on Attachment A variable signs are located on Breens Road, with static ‘School Zone Ends’ signs on the opposite side of the road. Bonita Place has also been included in the variable school zone as it is a short cul-de-sac with low speeds.


 

6.   Option 1 – Install a 40 Kilometre Per Hour Variable Speed Limit School Zone on Breens Road (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Install the 40 kilometres per hour Variable Speed Limit School Zone on Breens Road and Bonita Place as shown on Attachment A.

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 low.

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.

Community Views and Preferences

6.5       Key Stakeholder Engagement was carried out with the NZTA, NZ Police and Breens Intermediate. The NZ Police, NZTA and Breens Intermediate have provided written support for the proposal.

6.6       On Tuesday 3 October 2017, an information leaflet was delivered to all properties along Breens Road between Charnwood Crescent and Isleworth Road which included a plan of where the new signage was to be located and contact details should any residents have any concerns regarding this proposal.

6.7       There was one comment received about the close location of the northern variable speed sign to the Bishopdale Community Preschool.  This preschool is located at the north-east corner of the school site and it has its own vehicular entrance and car park.  The proposed variable school sign is located approximately 20 metres north of the car park entrance.

6.8       The proposed variable school speed zone only operates between the hours of 8:20-8:50am and 2:55-3:15pm on school days only.  The preschool operates from 7.30am to 5:00pm and operates over the school holidays.  The variable school speed zones can only legally operate at these times and are solely designed for operating outside of schools rather than preschools.  Therefore it is not proposed to shift the location of the northern variable speed sign.

6.9       Bonita Place was included in the school speed zone after consultation.  It is a short cul-de-sac with low speeds and when included in the school speed zone there is no need for the large static signs on Bonita Place.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.11    Cost of Implementation – Approximately $40,000 to supply, install and commission signs.

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

6.13    Funding source - School Speed Zone Signs budget.

Legal Implications

6.14    Speed limits must be set in accordance with Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017 and subsequent amendments. 

6.15    Clause 5 of the Christchurch City Council Speed Limits Bylaw 2010 provides Council with the authority to set speed limits by resolution.

6.16    The Council has not delegated its authority to set speed limits. 

6.17    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    

6.18    None identified.

Implementation

6.19    Implementation dependencies - dependent on endorsement by the Community Board and approval by Council to legalise school speed zone.

6.20    Implementation timeframe - Installed by March 2018.

4.1.2   The recommended road and/or right-of-way names have been checked against existing road  names in Christchurch and bordering districts, for duplication, alternative spellings, or other similarities in spelling or pronunciation to avoid the potential for confusion. The recommended names are considered sufficiently different to existing road names.

4.1.4   The recommended road and/or right-of-way names and types have been checked against Australian and New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4819:2011 Rural and urban addressing. The recommended names are considered to be consistent with this Standard.

4.1.5   Under the Roads and Right-of-Way Naming Policy the names considered must be requested by the developer. There is not an ability to consider alternative names without first checking whether there are any duplications or similarities with other road and right-of-way names.

             Changes to Parking patterns are resulting in increased heavy parking demand on streets that are outside of the original parking plan area and numerous calls have been received from residents regarding parking issues within the area covered by the existing plan.  Both the University and College of Education now run summer programmes and/or events, increasing the summer parking demand.  In response staff have started a review of the entire area.

             For ease of communication, the parking plan will be divided into separate areas and community feedback will be sought on each area over the current year.

             Area one was open for feedback from 20 October 2017 to 10 November 2017. 

             The changes proposed are:

·        Current P120 restriction area’s that include March-November are proposed to be changed to year round Mon-Fri 9am – 5pm.

             All other current P120 restrictions that are not 9am-5pm will be changed to these times.

·        Proposed new P120 restrictions to be year round Mon-Fri 9am – 5pm (applies to the streets of Hamilton, Lothian, Ilam, Tuirau, Swanleigh, Ryeland, Braithwaite)

6.   Major Community and/or Infrastructure Projects

6.1       Community Facilities

6.1.1   All Souls Anglican Church

Work is underway for the rebuild of the church which was formerly St Mary's Anglican Church in Merivale.  The building, located on the corner of Papanui Road and Church Lane, will be the home of the All Souls Anglican Church which is a merger of St Mary's Church and St Matthew's Church in St Albans.  Both churches were demolished after sustaining significant damage in the February 2011 earthquake.

The new church will feature a circular glass chapel, a large hall and a lounge for community events. The building will also incorporate elements from the two lost churches, including a memorial window from St Matthew's Church and a stained glass window from St Mary's Church.

The building progress is great news for the Merevale Corner Community Centre which has been based at the Elmwood Bowling Club since the earthquake.  The Community Centre, which is funded by the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board, is looking forward to returning to the heart of Merivale.

The building is expected to be completed by September 2018.

Staff are at present organising an opening ceremony for the new barbeque in Burnside Park.  A joint Wigram Lions and Christchurch City Council project, the barbeque will be a welcome asset for local residents and park users to enjoy over the summer months.

The opening is scheduled for mid-November 2017 (date to be confirmed).


 

6.3       Infrastructure projects underway

6.3.1   Uni-Cycle Route Opening

The cycleway linking the University of Canterbury to the Central City was officially opened on Wednesday 11 October 2017 by Mayor Lianne Dalziel and New Zealand Transport Agency Director of Regional Relationships, Jim Harland. 

University students, school pupils and cyclists have a safer and more affordable travel choice to get to the Central City.  The Uni-Cycle route is 5.6 kilometres long and work on the route included improving lighting, footpaths, upgraded intersections and landscaping.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6.3.2   Sawyers Arms Road Pedestrian Crossing

Work has begun on the installation of a new pedestrian crossing with traffic signals in Sawyers Arms Road, between Cotswold Avenue and Glasnevin Drive.

Temporary lane closures through the site may cause minor traffic delays whilst the works are being undertaken.

             Work is weather and road operations dependent, but it is expected that the installation will be completed by late November 2017.

 

6.3.3   Jeffreys Reserve Replacement Water Tank

             The 200 cubic metre damaged suction tank in Jeffreys Reserve needs to be replaced by a 500 cubic metre suction tank. The larger tank complies with the new design requirements to balance peak demand, and will ensure water quality including the ability to treat the water, if needed in an emergency.

             The existing tank will be removed as part of the construction process and the surrounding area re-landscaped to blend in with the park space.

             The Jeffreys Reserve Replacement Water Tank project was open for feedback from 6 October 2017 and ran through until 24 October 2017.  In addition, two “Drop in” sessions for local residents were held on 11 October and 18 October 2017.

             A report will be presented back to the Board in due course.

6.4       Events Report Back

6.4.1   The Breeze Walking Festival 2017

A lovely morning for the Mona Vale Spring Splendour with over 60 people turning out to walk around and hear about this gracious historic property.  Walkers commented how great it is to see Mona Vale close to being fully operational since its restoration following the 2011 earthquake, with the gatehouse also being re-opened in the near future.  Walkers enjoyed the mature trees, sloping lawns and herbaceous borders, a large rose garden, irises and a water lily pond.

Although the weather was not the best at times, the 2017 Walking Festival has proven very popular with either local people wanting to get to know their own backyard, or new migrants learning about their new city.
