7.1       Linwood/Woolston Pool: The Council at its 7 December 2017 meeting resolved to

Delegate community consultation on a site and initial scope of the proposed Linwood/Woolston Pool to the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board, noting that;

·     Council’s Engagement Team will be available to advise any statutory or best practice requirements of the consultation.

Request staff to report back early in 2018 on the elements of the decision making that can be delegated to the Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board.


 

7.1.1   The Board is thankful to the Council for this delegation and is excited that this work with the community will begin soon.  The Board will be meeting with staff on 29 January 2018 to commence the work on community engagement and consultation with a report being presented to the Board’s 14 February 2018 meeting.

7.2       Temporary Alcohol Ban in Linwood Village Area: A report from the Community Board requesting a temporary alcohol ban in Linwood Village was considered by the Council at its meeting of 20 December 2017.  The Council resolved to institute the ban from the date of the meeting for a period of six months.  The area covered by the ban is Fitzgerald Avenue (east side), Armagh Street, England Street and Hereford Street.  The Board is thankful to the Council for making this decision and will continue to meet with the police and community members to discuss whether it is working and what more can be done to ensure that that area is safe for all.

7.3       Linwood Village Revitalisation Plan - Te Whare Roimata has received funding through the Community Resilience Partnership Fund for a community-lead Revitalization Plan in the Inner City East/Linwood Village area.  The project is being facilitated by Regenerate Christchurch until a governance/working group structure is established with wide representation from the various sectors of the community.  The Councils Urban Regeneration and Community Governance staff are both involved in the project.

7.3.1   The project team has established a process for the completion of the plan over the next two years, continued research on the aspirations and priorities for the community and begun work on initiatives for the area.

1.   Purpose of Report

The purpose of this report is to provide the Council with an overview of Part A matters requiring a Council decision and of initiatives and issues considered by the Community Board.

 

2.   Community Board Recommendations

That the Council:

1.         Receive the Community Board report for November and December 2017.

 

 

3.   Community Board Decisions Under Delegation

The Banks Peninsula Community Board held meeting on 27 November and 11 December 2017.  Decisions made under delegation were:

·   New Skate Bowl & Bike Pump Track Get Go-Ahead for Governors Bay

The Board approved a landscape plan for a new skate bowl and bike pump track in Governors Bay. This plan resulted from extensive consultation with the community, particularly local children, on what they would most enjoy in a new playground.

·   Local Parks Maintenance

Following a resident’s presentation on maintenance issues in Corsair Bay, the Board requested that staff review maintenance standards for the area. For the busy summer season, staff have installed additional rubbish bins and increased the frequency at which they are emptied.

The Board also requested that staff investigate the effectiveness of local contractors completing parks maintenance, which is one of the priority actions in the Community Board Plan.

·   Little Parking in Lyttelton

In response to residents’ difficulty finding parking near their homes, the Board requested that staff provide an update on the possibility of formalising angle parking on a street in Lyttelton.

Staff advised that there was only a marginal gain in spaces from formalising angle parking, and the benefits were unlikely to outweigh the cost and time. Staff also noted that parking demand was affected by nearby works in the street. The Board requested that staff encourage conventional parallel parking on this street.

·   Community Funding in Banks Peninsula

The Board approved $300 towards a young person attending the United Nations Youth New Zealand Global Development Tour.

 

4.   Part A Recommendations to Council

The following reports presenting Part A recommendations from the Board are included in this agenda for Council consideration:

The Board’s consideration and recommendation of the above reports will be considered by the Council at this meeting.

 

5.   Significant Council Projects in the Board Area

       New Social Housing for Akaroa

5.1       The Board was briefed on progress with the replacement of the Bruce Terrace social housing units in Akaroa, and provided feedback on concept designs. Staff are meeting with current residents to learn about their preferences for the new units.

Marine Programme for Banks Peninsula

5.2       The myriad of marine structures across Banks Peninsula, including slipways, seawalls, wharves and jetties, are well-used by many locals and visitors for recreation as well as by the cruise industry and smaller scale commercial enterprises.

5.3       The Board was briefed on the process for how marine structure maintenance is prioritised and the current plan for future works across Banks Peninsula, and provided feedback on prioritisation to inform the Council’s Long Term Plan.

          Akaroa Seawall

5.4       Staff briefed the Board on options to repair the Akaroa seawall between Akaroa Wharf and the Fire Station. The Board requested that staff provide more information in order to recommend a preferred option.

       Partnership Leads to New Robinsons Bay Carpark and Boardwalk

5.5       A new carpark and small boardwalk have been completed for Robinsons Bay. The Council worked in partnership with the volunteer Robinsons Bay Reserve Management Committee to plan these projects.

5.6       The local community has also strongly advocated for repair of the Robinsons Bay Wharf. This project is moving forward, with the Council recently receiving tenders for re-piling.

       Volunteers Give Garden of Tane a Clean-Up

5.7       Staff are working closely with the volunteer Garden of Tane Reserve Management Committee in Akaroa to resolve drainage problems and damage caused to walking tracks.

Coastal Hazards Risk Assessed

5.8       After the new report assessing coastal hazard risk was released, community drop-in sessions were held in Diamond Harbour and Akaroa. Feedback from these meetings will be collated. Communities who wish to will then work with the Council to develop Community Resilience Plans, which will detail how to respond to all natural hazards including coastal hazards.

5.9       You can read the full 2017 Coastal Hazard Assessment for Christchurch and Banks Peninsula report below along with a summary of the report.

https://www.ccc.govt.nz/environment/land/livingwithwater/coastalhazards/

6.   Significant Community Issues, Events and Projects in the Board Area

Friends of Akarao Museum Receive Christchurch Civic Award  

6.1       The Friends of the Akaroa Museum received the 2017 Christchurch Civic Award for service to the City and the people of Akaroa and Christchurch.

6.2       The Akaroa Museum is a special place. As the keeper of history, the Museum preserves amazing stories and artefacts so these can be shared with the community and future generations. The special events and exhibitions put on by the Museum are well-loved, drawing locals and thousands of visitors from across New Zealand and all parts of the world.

6.3       The Friends of the Akaroa Museum make this all possible by dedicating thousands of hours to supporting the Museum’s goals, development and staff.

Goal to Connect Major Communities with Extensive Track Network

6.4       The Rod Donald Banks Peninsula Trust’s vision is to facilitate restoration of Banks Peninsula to its traditional status as Te Pātaka o Rākaihautū – the storehouse that nourishes.

6.5       The Trust recently briefed the Board on its aim for a network of well-managed, well-maintained and well-used recreational walking and cycling tracks to be established on Banks Peninsula connecting major communities including Christchurch and Akaroa. The Board requested that staff investigate how the Board could facilitate the Trust’s goal.

Restoration of the Whare Karakia at Rāpaki Marae

6.6       In September the Board provided a letter of support for Te Hapu o Ngāti Wheke’s funding applications to repair and restore the whare karakia (church) at Rāpaki Marae.

6.7       The whare karakia has been an important meeting place and an integral part of the community since it was built in 1869, and continues to be used for events and services by the Anglican, Presbyterian and Wesleyan ministries. The building itself is also historically significant as it is one of only two remaining early European buildings on Rāpaki Reserve. Built by the local community, it opened with a multi-denominational service with hymns sung in both Māori and English.

6.8       Te Hapu o Ngāti Wheke is happy to announce it has secured the majority of funding, and is awaiting confirmation on a small shortfall. It looks forward to proceeding with repairs and restoration as soon as possible with a view to completion in early-2018.

 

7.   Progress Report Against the Community Board Plan  

7.1       The Board approved its Banks Peninsula Community Board Plan for 2017-19 on 31 July 2017. This Plan, developed by talking with the community, is the Board’s vision for Banks Peninsula’s future.

https://www.ccc.govt.nz/the-council/how-the-council-works/elected-members/community-boards/banks-peninsula/

7.2       The Board held a workshop in late-January to review progress and reprioritise projects. Progress against the Community Board Plan will be included in the Board’s next report to the Council, and thereafter reported on quarterly.

7.3       Long Term Plan Matters

The Board identified two of the seven outcomes in our Community Board Plan as the highest priority outcomes for the Long Term Plan – modern and robust infrastructure and healthy environment.

 

             Modern and robust infrastructureThe Board’s first priority outcome is that a modern and robust infrastructure and community facilities network is provided, well-maintained and future-proofed.

To be a viable place to live, work and visit, we ask for the basics – including open roads, drinkable water when we turn on the tap, functional wastewater systems and community facilities to bring us together.

Healthy environmentThe Board’s second priority outcome is that the environment is well-managed, sustained and enhanced.

Our unique environment creates a sense of place that connects us to each other and underpins our economy. To preserve this part of our identity, we ask for our stunning native landscapes, extensive coastlines and sites of ecological significance to be well looked after.

7.4       The Board and Banks Peninsula Water Management Zone Committee have identified that infrastructure and the environment are shared priorities for the Council’s Long Term Plan, and will consider making a joint submission on these matters.

7.5       The Board appreciates the opportunity to continue to work with the Council to advocate for a Long Term Plan that reflects Banks Peninsula communities’ vision and priorities.

 

8.   Community Board Matters of Interest 

8.1       Preparing for Busy Freedom Camping & Tourist Summer Season

Banks Peninsula is a popular summer destination for locals and tourists from around New Zealand and oversees.

To prepare for the busy summer season, the Board requested that staff provide urgent advice on maintenance and emptying requirements for the Le Bons Bay public toilet to ensure that there is sufficient capacity for high use over the summer period.

The Board also requested urgent staff advice on the status of the Beca Report recommendations for all the Banks Peninsula public toilets and how this has informed:

(a)    maintenance and emptying requirements over the upcoming summer period.

(b)   the proposed capital programme in the Long Term Plan.

Freedom camping is prohibited in the area across from the Akaroa Library. Following advice that signs had recently been erected stating that this activity was allowed, the Board requested that staff investigate the installation of 120 minute parking restrictions in this area.

Residents are also concerned with congestion on State Highway 75. The Board requested advice from the New Zealand Transport Agency on the possibility of installing signs on State Highway 75 to advise slow drivers to pull over to let other traffic past.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

4.   Key Points

4.1       This report does not support the Council's Long Term Plan (2015 - 2025).

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Lease the transport yard to Fulton Hogan (preferred option)

·     Option 2 – Reclassify the “yard”

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     The delivery of the Council maintenance contract is optimised.

·     The jail is preserved for future generations.

·     No additional expenditure is required.

·     The site is retained by Council.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     The use as a transport yard is not in keeping with the reserve classification

 

5.   Context/Background

Previous Board Report and Resolution

5.1       At its meeting of 20th April 2016 Lyttelton/Mt Herbert Community Board recommended that the Council lease 153 Governors Bay Rd which is a recreation reserve, known as the Allandale transport yard site, to Fulton Hogan, subject to public notification and approval of existing use rights.

5.2       It was implicit in the report that as the recreation reserve was not currently, nor likely to be used for that purpose, and that as it was inadvisable or inexpedient to revoke the reservation, it should be leased. Justification was that the Parks Unit had confirmed it was unlikely for the reserve to be used as a recreation reserve and as part of the reserve is to be retained to protect the historic jail, it was inadvisable to revoke the reservation.

5.3       Following this meeting and in accordance with the Reserves Act 1977, staff publicly notified the intention to lease the site in June 2016 with no objections being received.

5.4       The previous resolution referred to leasing the property under section 73(1) (for farming or grazing) and not 73(3) (where it is inadvisable or inexpedient to revoke the reservation) of the Reserves Act 1977. Public notification was however carried out appropriately and the wording from section 73(3) was explicitly referenced in the report. The resolution is still valid but an amendment is required to rectify this typographical error.

5.5       The resolution required staff to report back to the Board if existing use rights could not be obtained for the site which is located in a Rural Zone, or if there were any objections to the lease following public notification, or for any other reason which would prevent the lease being granted.

5.6       In order for an existing use right certificate to be issued certain criteria must be met, one of which is that the intensity and scale relating to the use must not have changed. As the historic intensity and scale cannot be proven, an existing use right certificate will not be issued.

5.7       History of use of the site does however suggest this to be similar to that existing. Furthermore, no complaints about the use have been received by Council nor objections received through the public notification process which would support this contention.

5.8       Notwithstanding the above, the new lease should include a clause requiring the tenant to fulfil any statutory or regulatory obligations with regard to the non-complying use, with a break clause for the tenant should consent not be obtained.

5.9       An open market valuation of the annual rent was obtained from an independent registered valuer who estimated a rent in the order of $14-15,000 plus GST would be appropriate.

5.10    Negotiations with Fulton Hogan have resulted in a rent of $14,500 plus GST being agreed.

5.11    In the past this Reserve Management Committee kept the income and then spent it on the reserve.  Some concerns have been raised about the appropriateness of this practice, and it is in the process of being reviewed.  If arrangements are to change they will balance Council’s Strategic Priorities, such as enabling active citizenship and connected communities, legal responsibilities and practical considerations.

5.12    The most likely mechanism is a policy which covers the funding of RMCs being developed. This policy will expand on the work already being done to move funds held by individual RMCs to CCC WBS codes and work out how income off reserves is handled in the future.  The expectation is that this policy will start once all RMCs have management plans and priority spending can be agreed. Income and expenditure can be looked at during this process.

5.13    In the interim, the preferred mechanism for allowing the RMC to receive the income is:

5.13.1 For one year unbudgeted revenue (noting that none of the rental is currently budgeted) to the value of $14,500, be allocated to the Board;

5.13.2 The Board in turn grants the Reserve Management Committee an equivalent amount for development of the Reserve.

5.14    Since the previous report it has been identified that there is a water well on the property serving the Allandale Domain whose power supply is located in the building to be leased. It is intended to include a lease term to ensure this power supply is maintained at all times.

5.15    The proposed lessee is contracted to maintain the roads in this area for Council and this location is strategic for delivering on that contract so, while the use is inconsistent with the current land classification, it does contribute to achieving Council’s outcomes.

 

6.   Option 1 - Lease the transport yard to Fulton Hogan (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Lease the site as a transport yard with the exception of the jail which would be retained for public access.

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 public notification as required under the Reserves Act.

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       Public notification of the intention to lease the site to Fulton Hogan was undertaken in June 2016 and no objections or enquiries were received.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

6.6       There is a Reserve Management Plan for the Allandale Reserve.  It is silent on the issue of the transport yard and lease.

6.7       This option is inconsistent with Council’s Plans and Policies

6.7.1   Inconsistency - the property is non-operational and there are no other Council uses identified so it should be declared surplus. Leasing the property without going through a tender process is also inconsistent with the property disposal policy.

6.7.2   Reason for inconsistency - the proposed lessee is contracted to maintain the roads in this area for Council and this location is strategic for delivering on that contract.

6.7.3   Amendment necessary - the Council has no intention to amend the policy to accommodate the decision due to the proposed transaction being a one-off exception.

Financial Implications

6.8       Cost of Implementation - staff time and advertising the lease.

6.9       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - Fulton Hogan will be required to maintain the land and buildings the lease covers. The jail has historically been maintained by local residents.

6.10    Funding source - Transport operational budgets.

Legal Implications

6.11    As the intention to lease has been advertised with no objections, there are no implications.

Risks and Mitigations

6.12    There is a risk that a complaint on the traffic movements is received as a result of use of the site.  This may result in the need for a Resource Consent application.

6.12.1 Treatment: The lease is to be drafted that Fulton Hogan may terminate the lease or apply for a Resource Consent to establish the non-complying use.

6.12.2 Residual risk rating: the rating of the risk is low.

Implementation

6.13    Implementation dependencies  - none

6.14    Implementation timeframe – N/A

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.15    The advantages of this option include:

·   The delivery of the Council maintenance contract is optimised.

·   The jail is preserved for future generations.

·   No additional expenditure is required.

·   The site is retained by Council.

6.16    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   The use as a transport yard is not in keeping with the reserve classification

7.   Option 2 - Reclassify the transport yard

Option Description

7.1       Reclassify the transport yard to a more appropriate classification such as Local Purpose (Works Depot) classification.

Significance

7.2       The level of significance of this option is low consistent with section 2 of this report.  As part of the relevant statutory process, engagement will be required.

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.3       This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.

Community Views and Preferences

7.4       N/A

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.5       There is a Reserve Management Plan for the Allandale Reserve.  It is silent on the issue of the transport yard and lease.

7.6       This option is not contemplated in the Reserve Management Plan or any other of Council’s plans or policies. The process would be consistent with statutory requirements.

Financial Implications

7.7       Cost of Implementation - staff costs.

7.8       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – no change from present.

7.9       Funding source - operational Greenspace budget.

Legal Implications

7.10    A statutory process would need to be undertaken.

Risks and Mitigations

7.11    Not applicable

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:

·   The historic jail would remain protected as a Council asset.

·   A key road maintenance depot would be maintained.

·   The land would remain in public ownership

7.15    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   The land would have a different purpose and not be available for recreation purposes (unless there was a subsequent reclassification).

Report from Banks Peninsula Community Board  – 11 December 2017

1.   Consideration

 

1.    At its meeting on 11 December 2017, the Banks Peninsula Community Board considered a number of Staff Recommendations relating to correspondence and deputations it had received from the Lyttelton Seafarers Charitable Trust.

2.    The correspondence and deputations had sought support for the Trust from the Board and the Council through funding, possible provision of land for a building and support for the Maritime Labour Convention.

Background

3.    At its 22 May 2017 meeting, the Board received a deputation from the Lyttelton Seafarers Charitable Trust on the importance of providing welfare services to seafarers in Lyttelton.  The Trust also represented the Mission to Seafarers (the Mission) and the Apostleship of the Sea and the Sailors Society (Apostleship).

4.    The Trust, which manages the Lyttelton Seafarers Centre along with the Mission and Apostleship, noted that the Centre is unable to provide adequate services due to lack of funding.  For example, the Centre is run solely by volunteers and as a result has insufficient opening hours. The Centre is also located in a transportable building on a temporary site, as it lost its previous building in the earthquakes.

5.    The Trust advised that New Zealand had recently become a member state to the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC), and argued the obligations under that were not being upheld locally, for the approximately 10,000 seafarers that visit Lyttelton annually.  A summary of the MLC provided by the Trust is attached.  Please refer to the link below to  view the full text:

http://www.ilo.org/wcmsp5/groups/public/---ed_norm/---normes/documents/normativeinstrument/wcms_554767.pdf

6.    The Trust advised that some other ports around the world have a “port levy,” which is a charge levied on every ship that uses the port.  The funds generated are given to agencies that provide shore-based welfare facilities for visiting seamen.  The Trust asked the Board to seek Council support for a levy to be implemented by the Lyttelton Port Company.

7.    The Trust provided a summary of the Centre’s history and current issues as well as its 2016 Report as background information (attached).

8.    The Board requested that staff identify possible opportunities for Council land that could be used as a permanent site for the Centre, as part of the Property Review Process.

9.    The Board also requested that it receive further information on what obligations the Council and other bodies have under the Maritime Labour Convention.  A legal opinion from Council’s Legal Services Unit noted that the MLC is voluntary and there is no legal obligation to uphold it.  In summary the staff advice was as follows:

Neither the Council, nor Lyttelton Port Company (LPC), have any obligations under the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC).  New Zealand is a member state to the MLC but until the Government passes legislation enacting provisions in the MLC, there are no obligations on any Port company (or other body) to take any steps under an international convention.  However, this presumably does not prevent them from taking voluntary steps to meet any provisions of the MLC (provided it is not contrary to any New Zealand law).

This means it is completely voluntary as to whether any Port company provides for such a levy.  If the Community Board wishes to ‘lobby’ LPC (or the Government) on behalf of the Lyttelton Seafarers Centre (the Centre), or provide support to any letter/lobbying the Centre decides on, then that would appear to be something the Board can do, as an advocate for its community.

10.  Subsequent to receiving the legal advice, the Board received another presentation during the Public Forum session of its 13 November 2017 meeting from the Lyttelton Seafarers Charitable Trust.  The Trust sought support from the Board for:

·    Funding to enable the Lyttelton Seafarers Centre to extend its opening hours.

·    Securing a permanent building for the Lyttelton Seafarers Centre (the Centre is currently in a temporary building until 2021).

       11.   The staff recommendations below were included in the Area Report to the Community Board on 11 December 2017.  When considering the recommendations the Board agreed that although the Council did not have a legal obligation to uphold the Maritime Labour Convention, Board members believed it had a moral obligation to do so.

 

2.   Staff Recommendations

 

1.    Support the Lyttelton Seafarers Centre’s goal to provide welfare services to seafarers in Lyttelton.

2.    Request that staff work with the Lyttelton Seafarers Centre to investigate any funding options.

3.    Request that staff advise whether any Council properties would be appropriate for a permanent site for the Lyttelton Seafarers Centre during the upcoming property review process.

4.    Request that staff investigate whether the Council has a moral obligation to voluntarily uphold the Maritime Labour Convention.

 

3.   Decisions Under Delegation

 

Community Board Resolved BKCB/2017/00001

 

Part B

 

That the Banks Peninsula Community Board:

 

1.    Support the Lyttelton Seafarers Centre’s goal to provide welfare services to seafarers in Lyttelton.

2.    Request that staff work with the Lyttelton Seafarers Centre to investigate any funding options.

3.    Request that staff advise whether any Council properties would be appropriate for a permanent site for the Lyttelton Seafarers Centre during the upcoming property review process.

4.    Support the introduction of a levy on ships in Lyttelton to support seafarer’s welfare, and advocate for this to appropriate authorities.

John McLister declared an interest in Items 1-4 (Part B) and did not take part in the discussion or voting thereon.

 

4.   Recommendation to Council

 

 

That the Council:

1.         Consider whether it has a moral obligation to voluntarily uphold the Maritime Labour Convention.

 

 

Staff Comment

 

The full legal advice providing advice on this matter (referenced in paragraph 9 of the background section) is included with this report as attachment D for the Council’s reference.  Legal Services have provided the following further comment:

 

That the Board recommendation that Council consider whether it has moral obligations to voluntarily uphold the Convention presumably relates not to the whole Convention, but to the deputation heard by the Board where the Seafarers Centre indicated the Convention suggests there should be port levies provided for to fund shore based seafarers’ centres.  The attached legal advice is clear the Council has no obligations under the Maritime Labour Convention.  Even the Port Company, which would be the only body that could impose port levies (the Council could not do this), do not have any obligations under the Convention; it is the Government that has obligations in the first instance.  As the Council has no obligations at all in relation to the Convention it is difficult to see how it could have any moral obligation.  If the Council considers that 'morally' it should do something to support the seafarers centre then the appropriate (and usual) manner of supporting organisations is through the Council's grants programme.

 

An alternative staff recommendation for the Council’s consideration is below:

 

That the Council

 

1.         Receive the attached legal advice, and note that the advice makes it clear the Council has no obligations under the Maritime Labour Convention. 

2.         Resolve that therefore Council does not have any moral obligations to voluntarily uphold that Convention.

4.   Part A Recommendations to Council

There are no Part A recommendations from the Board are included in this agenda for Council consideration.

5.   Significant Council Projects in the Board Area

         New Brighton Regeneration                     

5.1       Opening of the New Brighton Beachside Playground

 

20 December 2017 marked the opening of the New Brighton Beachside Playground. David East and Kim Money officially opened the playground with a blessing performed by Te-Kaharoa Manihera. Local children, parents, residents, and those who worked on the project joined in on the day’s festivities. The opening of the playground marks the first step in Development Christchurch Limited’s (DCL) work to revitalise New Brighton.  

 

 

 

20 December marked the community opening of the New Brighton Beachside Playground  

 

5.2       Improvements to Public Spaces 

 

At the same time DCL sought feedback on the hot pools, the Council consulted on proposed improvements to New Brighton Pedestrian Mall and Marine Parade. The results of the consultation will be presented to the Community Board in February.

 

5.3       Christchurch Hot Pools

 

In December last year, DCL analysed feedback received during the public engagement on the hot pools that ran from late October to early November 2017.  The feedback provided clear insights into community aspirations for the facility. This has contributed to the way the pools are being designed, with strong themes of wind protection, shelter, seating, parking, and accessibility coming through in the feedback responses.  This feedback was incorporated into designs that were showcased at a community workshop in early December 2017.  Finalised concept designs are expected early this year when preparations will also begin for consenting.

 

QEII Park

5.4       QEII Recreation and Sport Centre

 

The rebuild of the QEII Recreation and Sport Centre is due to be completed by mid this year. The 130 metre-long hydroslide was recently lifted in to place (see photo below).

 

     The new hydroslide is lifted into place.

The new 130-metre-long hydroslide being lifted into place

 

5.5       QEII Master Plan

 

As previously reported, this year in collaboration with the community, Council will begin developing a Master Plan that will help guide the future use of QEII Park.  

 

This Master Plan will set out the vision for QEII Park and how it's used – making sure the park’s environment, communities and buildings are all connected. This is an important process and will guide how QEII develops as it gets busier with the new facilities on the park.

 

In the coming weeks, the project team will get in touch with all of the park’s immediate neighbours and the wider community, inviting them to take part in this exciting opportunity.

 

5.6       Coastal Hazards Report

 

After the new report assessing coastal hazard risk was released, community drop-in sessions were held in Burwood, New Brighton, South Brighton and Spencerville. Feedback from these meetings will be collated. Communities who wish to will then work with the Council to develop Community Resilience Plans, which will detail how to respond to all natural hazards including coastal hazards.

Given the generalised nature of the Coastal Hazards Report Summary Document, the Coastal-Burwood Community Board felt it did not provide appropriate information in relation to the coastal areas of the Coastal-Burwood ward.  Therefore, the Board is working with Council staff to develop frequently asked questions to provide clarification to the community on relevant aspects of the report.


 

6.   Significant Community Issues, Events and Projects in the Board Area

6.1    Central New Brighton School site and Roy Stokes Hall for Community Use

In response to concerns raised by members of the community, the Board agreed to contact Land Information New Zealand to establish if the Crown disposal process of the Central New Brighton School can be suspended to enable the Community:

a)     to consider options for the use of the Roy Stokes Hall and;

b)     to consider options for the use of the balance of the school site.  

The Board has been advised that the Ministry of Education and its agents have agreed to allow time to enable the Council to better understand community wishes and options.

A meeting was held with the Community Board and community groups in December to discuss options for the Roy Stokes Hall and Central New Brighton school site.  Further work is currently being done by community groups to consider future use. 

The Central New Brighton School site is currently the site of The Old School Te Kura Tawhito, a creative community hub which includes a range of community organisations and activities.  

6.2    South Brighton Estuary Edge

There are ongoing flooding and erosion issues being experienced around the South Brighton estuary edge area resulting in mature trees falling and others in danger of falling, the recreational track eroding in places and plant losses.  These areas of the estuary edge have not been repaired or maintained after earthquake damage. The Community Board is working with the community and Council staff, along with Regenerate Christchurch, to look at options to address these issues.

7.   Progress Report Against the Community Board Plan

 

7.1       The Board approved the Coastal-Burwood Community Board Plan for 2017-19 on 16 October 2017. This Plan, can be found at the following link:

https://www.ccc.govt.nz/assets/Documents/The-Council/Community-Boards/Coastal-Burwood-Community-Board-Plan-2017-19.pdf

7.2     Progress against the Community Board Plan will be included in the Board’s March 2018 report to the Council, and thereafter reported on quarterly.

5.   Significant Community Issues

5.1       Traffic Issues

Traffic issues are an ongoing in the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board area. It is hoped that the recent opening of the new Memorial Gateway Bridge will relieve some issues including heavy traffic using residential streets.  There is concern, however, that the Cranford Street upgrade will have a negative impact on the traffic flow through Fendalton.

On Monday, 27 November 2017 Board members and Council staff met informally with representatives from the local community to discuss issues relating to traffic in the Glandovey/Idris/Straven Road area.  The Board’s Councillors have also discussed the issues with the Chief Executive. 

A restriction of heavy vehicles in the Glandovey/Idris area is currently being investigated.

 

6.   Significant Projects and Initiatives

5.1       Jellie Park Repair work

Repair work at Jellie Park began in December 2017.  A contractors’ site compound is located on the front lawn at Jellie Park, in the area of the temporary carpark.  This is being used for the contractors over the next year or so to support the works and will not be available for car parking or public use during this time.

 

5.2       Jellie Park Bike Incentive

The Bike Incentive at the Jellie Park Recreation and Sport Centre is now underway and will continue over the summer pool season until the end April 2018.

The Bike Incentive will also be run at Pioneer Recreation and Sport Centre and the Graham Condon Recreation and Sport Centre as part of the national bike awareness month in February 2018.

         5.3       Christmas Events

                      The following community organised Christmas Carol events took place in the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Community Board area prior to Christmas:

5.3.1   Merivale Precinct Society Christmas Carols, were held in the second week of December at the Merivale Reserve in Rugby Street.  They involved people of all ages and provided an opportunity for local residents to meeting for an informal evening where they can mix with others from their community.  Residents from a wide range of cultures attended the event.  The evening included a band, magician, pony rides, photo booth and food stalls and began with a barbeque. Up to 300 residents are expected to attend the event.

5.3.2   Community Carols @ The Park  were held in Crosbie Park, on 17 December. This small scale event was organised by volunteers from the five local churches in the Board area.  Although the day turned overcast, members of the local community brought along picnics, and enjoyed the carol singing that was led by a live band. This year the event featured Elgregoe, a well-known Christchurch magician and entertainer.

 

 

                     

5.4       Christchurch City Council’s Youth Pool Party 2017

Staff could not have hoped for better weather for the Youth Pool Party on Friday, 8 December 2017 at Jellie Park.  Two hundred and sixty local youth thoroughly enjoyed the night organised by Council staff working alongside key youth organisations and their leaders.  The event was    hi-lighted by the 'best' bomb competition and free Hellers sausages that were all devoured (thanks Hellers!)

 

A big thank you to all the local CCC staff, Jellie Park staff and youth workers who assisted and to the Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood and Papanui-Innes Community Boards for supporting such a great event.

2.   Community Board Recommendations

That the Council:

1.         Receive the Papanui-Innes Community Board report for December 2017.

 

 

3.   Community Board Decisions Under Delegation

The Papanui-Innes Community Board held an extraordinary meeting on 1 December and an ordinary meeting on 8 December 2017.  Decisions made under delegation were:

·     Approval of the landscape plan for the siting of the MacFarlane Park Community Centre at 17 Acheson Avenue, Mairehau. The building is to be relocated from the St Albans Community Centre site at 1049 Colombo Street, St Albans. It is intended that the building be located near the playground at the corner of Acheson Avenue and Skipton Street and work will include decking, new paths, seating, bike stands and a small car park. The approved location goes across an area of existing playground equipment (swing set and rocking horse) and this equipment will be removed and new equipment placed beside the existing modular play equipment.

·     Approval to prohibit the stopping of vehicles at all times on the west side of March Place from a point 150 metres south of its intersection with Belfast Road and extending in a southerly direction for a distance of 64 metres and approval prohibiting the stopping of vehicles at all times on the east side of March Place commencing at a point 143 metres south of its intersection with Belfast Road and extending in a southerly direction for a distance of 66 metres. This change will maintain a safe area for B-train vehicles to move in and out of businesses on this street. Currently vehicles parked on the street narrow the carriageway from 12 metres to 8 metres.

·     Approval to prohibit the stopping of vehicles at all times on the north side of Dudley Street commencing at its intersection with Hills Road and extending in an easterly direction for a distance of 6 metres and that the parking of vehicles be restricted to a maximum period of ten minutes on the north side of Dudley Street commencing at a point 6 metres east of its intersection with Hills Road and extending in an easterly direction for a distance of 20 metres. This change will convert unrestricted parking on Dudley Street to 10min parking to cater for customers to the shops in the area. The parking is outside the dairy and no residential parking has been removed.

·     Approval to install bus shelters at Grimseys Road (adjacent to 111 Prestons Road) and 93 Harewood Road plus the associated no stopping areas and parking restrictions for the bus stop at 93 Harewood Road. This bus stop will be extended by 5 metres to meet the minimum length for a bus stop. Road markings are not considered necessary for the existing bus stop on Grimseys Road due to its suburban location and proximity to the intersection of Grimseys Road and Prestons Road. 

·     Approval of the following grants:

$1,500 from the Discretionary Response Fund to the Belfast Sports and Community Centre Inc. towards the cost of carpark pothole repairs. 

$450 from the 2017/18 Youth Development Fund to Georgia Louise Eagle towards the costs of attending the World Pipe Band Championships in Glasgow, Scotland in August 2018.

6.   Significant Community Issues, Events and Projects in the Board Area
