Part B

5.1       Rachel Puentener – The How Team

Rachel Puentener, Convenor of the How Team,  provided an update on the work the How Team has been contracted by Regenerate Christchurch to deliver.

 

             Item 6.2.1 in the Coastal-Burwood Community Board Area Report refers.

Rachel advised a meeting with key community groups took place last week to discuss engagement.  Previous meetings have discussed strategy, process evaluation, high level objectives, trust in the community, and implementation of the plan.

There will be five subsequent weekly meetings.

             Rachel confirmed that other membership of the How Team is:

·    Jane Doogue – Regional Council Member

·    Marie Graham

·    Debbie Hogan – City Council member

·    Steve Jones-Poole

·    Rebecca Kyle

·    Rebecca McAllister

·    Katy McRae – Regenerate Christchurch member

·    Megan Roulston

·    Evan Smith

·    Russell Walker

·    Simon Watts

There are no observers on the committee, due to confidentiality and to keep the meetings focussed.

The Board clarified that the How Team model was unique and was consequently being evaluated.

The committee will set out the engagement plan for Regenerate Christchurch Limited.

The Chairperson thanked Rachel for her deputation.

 

 

5.2       Philip Haythornthwaite – New Brighton Road (Burwood Park) Proposed Bus Stop Relocation

             Mr Haythornthwaite, in his capacity as President of the Disabled Persons Assembly, spoke to the Board regarding the Bus Stop Relocation report at Item 8. 

Mr Haythornthwaite believed that the placement of the proposed relocated bus stop opposite Cresswell Avenue would put waiting passengers in potential danger from antisocial drivers exiting Cresswell Avenue and losing control.  To mitigate this potential danger, his proposal was to move the relocated stop westward.

Moving the bus stop eastwards towards Kingsford Street would create issues because of kerb cut-downs. 

The Chairperson thanked Philip for his deputation.

This matter was further debated when the report was received at item 7.

 

6.   Presentation of Petitions

Part B

There was no presentation of petitions.

8.   New Brighton Road (Burwood Park) Proposed Bus Stop Relocation

 

Board Comment

The Board discussed the issues raised by the deputation.  Staff advised that moving the bus stop to the other side of Kingsford Street would impede sight lines for motorists.  Moving the bus stop west, as proposed by Mr Haythornthwaite, would require taking out one or two extra parking spaces. 

It was noted the Cresswell Avenue has become very busy and this had been taken into consideration by staff, noting that accidents resulting from anti-social drivers occur throughout the city and that this area is not expected to be worse. 

Staff clarified that there is no bus shelter at this bus stop, as it is an outbound stop, and only very few passengers are expected to be waiting there.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Coastal-Burwood Community Board to endorse the installation of a new variable speed limit (40 kilometres per hour school speed zone) on Queenspark Drive at Queenspark School, and to recommend to the Council that it approves the new variable speed limits and include it in the Christchurch City Council Register of Speed Limits.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated, in response to the Queenspark Schools request and this site is becoming top priority on the Council’s approved school zone implementation priority list.

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 the project being low cost and affecting a limited group of residents by the preferred option.

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Coastal-Burwood Community Board recommends that the Council:

1.         Approve the installation of a 40 kilometres per hour variable speed limit on Queenspark Drive (school zone) as it meets the requirements of Section 2.5 and Section 2.6 of the Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017, and the New Zealand Gazette notice (21/04/2011, Number 55, page 1284) including the times of operation.

2.         Approve that, subject to the Council approving recommendation 1 above, pursuant to Clause 5(1) of the Christchurch City Speed Limits Bylaw 2010, a variable speed limit (40 kilometres per hour School Speed zone) apply on Queenspark Drive, commencing at a point 55 metres south west of its intersection with Broadhaven Avenue and extending in a south westerly direction for a distance of 342 metres.

3.         Approve that, subject to the Council approving recommendations 1 and 2 above, the above mentioned new variable speed limit shall come into force on completion of infrastructure installation and public notification.

 

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: 10.0.6 Improve Road Safety: Reduce the number of reported crashes on the network

·     Level of Service: 10.0.31 Protect Vulnerable Road Users – minimise the number of fatal crashes involving pedestrians and cyclists

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Install a school speed zone on Queenspark Drive for Queenspark School (preferred option)

·     Option 2 – Do nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     It reduces the operational speed on Queenspark Drive, therefore improves the safety in the area during the peak school travel times.

·     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       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 kilometres per hour variable speed limits (known as ‘School Speed Zones’) outside schools according to a prioritisation process. This process, including the methodology behind it, was endorsed on 25 August 2011 by the Council as the most appropriate method of improving road safety outside certain schools, where no other traffic control device(s) are practical or feasible.

5.2       The Queenspark School community have raised concerns about the traffic environment around the school and the consequential road safety implications for children on their way to and from school.


 

6.   Option 1 - Install a school speed zone on Queenspark Drive for Queenspark School (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Install the school speed zone on Queenspark Drive for Queenspark School as shown in Attachment A.

6.2       Electronic signs are proposed to be placed at the start of the school speed zone outside the properties at No.203 and No.244 Queenspark Drive. Static (non-electronic) signs are proposed to be placed at the end of the school speed zone outside No.243 Queenspark Drive and opposite No.203 Queenspark Drive.

6.3       The existing PW-31 ‘ Children’ and supplementary PW-32 ‘School’ warning signs currently located outside No.244 Queenspark Drive are proposed to be relocated approximately 65 metres southwest to a new location outside No.236 Queenspark Drive.

Significance

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

6.5       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are low.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.6       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

6.7       The Queenspark School community have previously raised concerns about the traffic environment around the school and the consequential road safety implications for children on their way to and from school.

6.8       Following staff surveys and investigations to reconfirm that the proposed school speed zone met the required NZTA warrants and remained at the top of the Council’s prioritisation program, staff met with the Queenspark School vice principal and subsequently received a formal written request from the school principal in November 2017 for installation of a school speed zone.

6.9       Initial engagement was carried out with NZTA and Police in December 2017. Neither organisation expressed any opposition to the proposal.

6.10    An information letter and plan of the proposal was hand delivered to each of the properties on Queenspark Drive within (and directly adjacent to) the proposed school speed zone on Tuesday 30 January 2018, with responses requested by 13 February 2018. Attempts were made to speak directly with residents of the properties directly adjacent to any of the proposed sign locations. Only one resident (at No.236 Queenspark Drive) was home at the time, and that person verbally indicated their support for the proposal. Copies of the letter and plan were also posted to non-resident owners of the properties directly adjacent to any of the proposed signage. Only one response was received from the letter-box drop advising of a small error on the consultation plan that incorrectly identified the location of the existing warning signs on the east side of Queenspark Drive. That response did not indicate support or opposition to the proposal.

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 – approximately $30,000

6.13    Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – Covered under the area maintenance contract and effects will be minimal to the overall asset

6.14    Funding source – Road Safety at Schools budget

Legal Implications

6.15    Implementation of variable speed limit school zones, including the installation of any associated signs and/or markings, must comply with Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2017, the New Zealand Gazette notice (21/04/2011, Number 55, page 1284) and NZTA Traffic Note 37 Revision 2 (May 2011).

6.16    The Interpretation Act 1999 provides for the New Zealand Gazette notice (21/04/2011, Number 55, page 1284) and NZTA Traffic Note 37 to have continued effect, despite those documents being set under (and referring to) the now repealed Land Transport Rule: Setting of Speed Limits 2003.

6.17    The installation of any signs and/or markings must also comply with Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

Risks and Mitigations

6.18    None identified.

Implementation

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

6.20    Implementation timeframe – Installed by the end of May 2018.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.21    The advantages of this option include:

·   It reduces the operational speed on Queenspark Drive, therefore improves the safety in the area during the peak school travel times.

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

6.22    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Increased amount of signage on the traffic route.

7.   Option 2 – Do nothing

Option Description

7.1       Do nothing.

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 low.

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.

7.6       This option would not address concerns previously raised by the Queenspark School community about the traffic environment around the school and the consequential road safety implications for children on their way to and from school.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

2.   Staff Recommendations

3.1.3   Rawhiti Domain as an events space

When the Coastal-Burwood Community Board met on 4 December 2017 the use of Rawhiti Domain as an events space was discussed, with the Board noting their support for both Rockabilly Show N Shine and Archery events taking place at the same time. There has since been agreement between those two groups for the remainder of 2018.

The Board sought advice from staff on how a designated events space could be established for Rawhiti Domain for current and potential users to support events taking place that contribute to the regeneration of the area.

Staff advise that a designated events space is a space where sports aren’t played and event activity takes priority. There are two areas where this could occur within the park. One is where the temporary village was located, and the other is in the space east of the archery. The current management plan requires that these areas be retained as informal open space available for recreational use. Any change to this would require a change to the management plan. However, both of these areas are already available for events without being designated. The former temporary village site in particular, is specifically noted in the plan as being available for events.

Currently, events need to gain written approval from other occupants of Rawhiti Domain and most are happy for the event to take place. Designating an area specifically for events would mean that other occupants are advised of the event rather than having to gain their permission. It is preferable to have all events and activities coordinated and managed to balance the needs of all users.

Thomson Park is also available for events and is anticipated in the management plan to become more intensively used for this purpose. It would be preferable to enhance this site for events.

3.1.4   Redundant vehicular kerb cut-downs

On 19 February 2018, the Board requested that the Pages Road cut-down kerbing vehicle crossings (between Anzac and bridge) be tidied up before the permanent solution is put in place. Staff undertook also to establish what the reinstatement policy was with kerb cut-downs where they were no longer needed.

Advice received is that Council is not obliged to reinstate kerbs at redundant vehicle crossings unless the redundant vehicle crossing in question was the subject of an approval that specifically included a condition to reinstate the kerb, there is also no obligation on the property owner.

In terms of the section of Pages Road mentioned, in 2017 contractors repaired and replaced the damaged footpath on the north side at the Board’s request to provide this vital pedestrian link for the community. Staff advised at the time the reinstating the kerbing in full along that stretch would not be done because of the likelihood of the bridge replacement and associated work on the approaches. That situation remains unchanged.

3.1.5   The Board continues to receive strategic, technical and procedural advice mainly through an ongoing programme of Board seminars held monthly.

3.2       Board area Consultations/Engagement/Submission opportunities

3.2.1   There are no consultations open to the community within the Community Board area.

The event to celebrate the recently completed works in the South Brighton and Southshore areas was held on Sunday 25th February 2018.

The event was held in the South Brighton Domain and attended by approximately 30 people.

The free sausage sizzle and entertainment from local pirate entertainers was a huge hit.

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

6.1       South New Brighton Trees

The Board has requested an urgent safety audit of trees along the estuary edge.

The area arborist and Treetech have visited the site regularly over the past 6 weeks.

One fallen tree on the beach of the estuary and five large tree stumps have been removed.  There is a group of 8 dead pine and macrocarpa trees near the campground boundary fence which will be removed within the next two weeks due to safety.  Treetech will also remove a number of broken branches in close proximity of the main walkway.

6.2       Rawhiti Domain Tree Removal and Replacement

Please see the attached memorandum (Attachment E) advising of the planned removal and replacement of seven mature trees. Replacement trees are scheduled for planting next winter season. As an update to information in the memorandum, due to delays in confirming this work, the earliest that the removals can be carried out is 12-13th of March 2018.

 

 

6.4       Southshore and South New Brighton Regeneration

There is no update at time of writing this report.

6.5       Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor

There is no update at time of writing this report.

6.6       Central New Brighton School Site and Roy Stokes Hall

Council and the Coastal-Burwood Community Board have successfully requested the Ministry of Education delay decision making about the site until July 2018.  Council staff are now working with a community group to help them assess the feasibility of owning and managing parts of the Central New Brighton Closed School site.

 6.7     Westhaven Tree Removal and Replacement Project

The timeframe for the project in Westhaven, where residents identified some trees and infrastructure needed attention, has had to be moved out due to the number of trees involved and the mapping of the area.  An update is expected to be given to the Community Board late-March.

 

7.   Parks, Sports and Recreation Update (bi-monthly)

7.1       Local Parks Update

7.1.1   Christchurch has recorded over 3.5 times its average rainfall for January and February. Significant rains combined with warmer than usual temperatures have trigged substantial grass and weed growth.

Local beaches and Parks have been well utilised by the community this summer. The opening of the new Whale Pool in New Brighton has been increasingly popular since opening over Christmas. An additional bin was installed to alleviate litter issues. The additional bin will be replaced Big Belly Bin over autumn.

Bollards are to be installed at Bexley Park by the 9th of March. ‘Watch for Children’ signage is to be installed immediately after bollard installation is complete.
