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.

Board Consideration

The Board considered the report in conjunction with the information provided in the deputation by
Mr Leisten in regard to the installation of lighting poles at Bishopdale Park to provide adequate lighting in the winter months for coaching purposes. Item 5 of these minutes refers.

 

Members noted that the Club had been co-operative throughout the community consultation recognising the impact of the proposed lighting on neighbouring properties.

 

The Board was mindful of neighbouring residents’ concerns as to the impact of the lighting on their properties if operating to 9pm.  However, on balance, members considered that the hours of lighting should operate consistently for all courts from the outset but that this should be carefully monitored and reviewed. If any significant issues or concerns arise once the lighting is fully operational,  the restriction of hours for some or all of the courts, would then be further considered.

 

The Board supported the staff recommendation to pro-actively monitor the lighting every two months and to take action as necessary, with a further comprehensive assessment after 12 months.

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 a Central Pedestrian Refuge Island and all associated markings including No Stopping in accordance with Attachment A. (preferred option)

·     Option 2 – Do Nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Improves safety for pedestrians crossing Gardiners Road by providing a crossing facility near the Fairford Street intersection.

·     The pedestrian refuge island gives pedestrians a safe place to wait when crossing the road in two stages.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     On street parking will need to be removed to ensure pedestrian sightlines and lane widths are provided.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       Staff received requests from the community to look into the safety for pedestrians crossing Gardiners Road near to the Fairford Street intersection.

5.2       Following several site visits a pedestrian survey was carried out at morning and afternoon school peak times. Following this survey the proposed location meet the criteria needed to install a refuge and became eligible for funding this financial year.

5.3       The proposed location will provide a safe crossing point for all pedestrians however from the pedestrian survey results it was recorded that the majority of pedestrians crossing Gardiners Road were predominately Cotswold School children. Staff initiated a meeting with Cotswold School management to go over the proposal and they were fully in support of the proposal and the proposed location.

5.4       An independent safety audit has been carried out for this pedestrian refuge in accordance with the "NZTA road safety audit procedures for projects guidelines". The report did not identify any concerns with the design as shown in Attachment A.

5.5       Also required for the installation of the refuge will be the removal of one Ribbonwood street tree which is currently situated outside number 53 Gardiners Road. Consultation was carried out regarding the removal of the tree and there were no objections to the tree being removed. It was also identified that a suitable re-planting location could be outside 49 Gardiners Road or on Fairford Street, south of number 52 Gardiners Road property. A Large-leaved Kowhai has been identified as a suitable replacement tree species for either location.

 

 

5.6       Resource consent will be required for the removal of the subject tree and a resource consent application has already been lodged and the outcome should be known before the end of November 2017. Refer to Attachment B for the location of the tree proposed to be removed and the preferred re-planting locations. Also refer to Attachment C for the independent Arboricultural Report which has a recommendation that the Ribbonwood is removed to allow for the construction of the pedestrian refuge crossing.


 

6.   Option 1 – Install Pedestrian Refuge Island (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       To install a Central Pedestrian Refuge Island on Gardiners Road and all associated markings including No Stopping in accordance with Attachment A.

Significance

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

6.3       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are consistent with this level.

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       Consultation on the proposed pedestrian refuge, Gardiners Road, Bishopdale was undertaken from 24 August to 8 September 2017. Council delivered 165 consultation leaflets to residents in and around Gardiners Road, Council libraries and service centres. They were also posted and emailed to 22 key stakeholders.  The consultation response is as follows. 

Feedback

Team response

·    It is far too close to Fairford Street.  It needs to be further north outside 56-58 Gardiners Road. This proposed island should be much further away from any side street corners.

·    Being placed so close as shown in the plan will also make it very difficult for any traffic to turn right into Gardiners Road.  Having to negotiate the crossing island while turning right would it make it possible that while watching traffic approaching from the north and the south, they might not see any children crossing from west to east across Gardiners Road, and possibly hit them.

·    Most inappropriate place for a road impediment - right adjacent to a T-intersection (uncontrolled).  Please think about traffic safety whilst you're thinking of pedestrian safety.  if you really need/want the P.refuge please place it well away from the intersection .... suggest outside Gardiner Road 56.

The selected site is where the demand for pedestrians to cross the road is, moving the crossing further away will defeat the objective of having the crossing. Vehicle tracking movements have been carried out which showed that resident vehicles on either side of the crossing can negotiate the crossing with no difficulty. Furthermore, the proposed location for a crossing will be subjected to an independent Road Safety Audit before it gets build to make sure it is as safe as it could be.

How disruptive to traffic is this going to be and how long will it take?

We are missing a couple of trees from Gardiners Rd outside number 63.  If you're removing a tree from number 53, it should be replanted at number 49 not on Fairford Street

As with any road construction project, this is likely to cause some minor delays during construction stage which is estimated to be around 14 days. The location and species of the tree will be the subject of a Resource Consent and final decision by the Community Board, however based on the feedback received, the preferred replanting location is A on Gardiners Road.

·     Little thought has been considered where the crossing is being placed the main foot traffic comes from Aitree St to Harewood Road, Crofton Road via Pelorus Place and St Ives St.  Foot traffic from The north end of Gardiners Road going to Cotswold school mainly go through the walk way around 78 Gardiners Road. A better place would be outside 39 Gardiners Road.

·    Most children crossing Gardiners Road appear from Aintree St.  Surely the refuge would be best sited further south opposite 44 and beside the yellow "CBD' vent.  Any children from the northern end would surely use the alleyway thru to Oldwood St.

Pedestrian surveys were carried out in this area and the survey data supports the proposed location. Cotswold School have been informed of the proposed location and are in support.

·    You are making no parking outside 4 over 60 units removing 2 parking spaces for visitors. 

·    The resulting yellow lines in this location would not have such a devastating effect on 51 and 53. (5 residences) (4 are 60+), and visitors cannot park on a shared drive.  Further south driveway is a single residence.

·    I have concerns about the loss of on street parking in both Fairford St and Gardiners Rd . Near the corner on Fairford St and both sides of the Rd are frequently used for parking .  No. 54 Gardiners Rd also has a number of cars parked on the rd after work and thru the night etc were do these cars park now ?

The proposed No Parking restrictions are important in order to keep the intersection free from congestion and to also make sure the crossing is well visible to both drivers and pedestrians.

·    It would be more sensible to duplicate the traffic lights currently at the Harewood / Northcote/ Greers Rd intersection at the Harewood/ Breens/Gardiners Rd intersection. Benefits :  phasing  with the G Rd/Sawyers Arms Rds signals.

·     I would rather have liked lights installed at Harewood, Breens-Gardiners Road intersection.

The current level of service for pedestrians in this area is not adequate. Site observations along with discussions with the school have identified a need to improve the level of service for pedestrians by proposing to install the crossing as proposed.

TREE

 

The tree being removed does NOT need to be replaced especially not in position A.  There was a tree near the front of that property when it was a house that caused enough problems to the drainage system.   The ribbonwood trees are nothing but a PEST consistently distributing their rubbish (leaves, flowers etc) into the gutters blocking them right down to Harewood Road.  The people in 53 will be happy to see it gone.  Position B will also be unneccesary as there is already a tree near there, and it is only something else to cause diminished visibilty on the street.

The location and species of the tree will be the subject of a Resource Consent and final decision by the Community Board, however based on the feedback received, the preferred replanting location is “A”, Gardiners Road.

Option A would impede the vision for vehicles coming from the driveway of the units of 49 &51.

The location and species of the tree will be the subject of a Resource Consent and final decision by the Community Board. If Option A was chosen by the Community Board every effort will be made to make sure it will have little or no impact on vision for vehicles coming from the driveway of units 49 &51.

Neither - why should we have any input into putting a tree in front of another persons house

In this case, it is a requirement to include a replanting option within the project consultation.
