9.        Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board Area Report - March 2018

Reference:

18/223828

Presenter:

Gary Watson, Community Governance Manager

2.   Staff Recommendations 

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

2.         Receive the information regarding Board representation on the Riccarton Bush Trust.

7.         Nominate a Board member to participate in the Local Government - Participatory Democracy - Part 2: Have your Say Education Programme.

3.   Community Board Activities and Forward Planning

3.1       Memos/Information/Advice to the Board

3.1.1   Riccarton Bush Trust – Board Representation

At its meeting on 12 December 2017, the Board decided to defer a review of this matter to early in 2018.

In the intervening period, legal advice was requested on the requirements for the Board to carry out this review.

The advice from the Council’s legal team detailed the relevant appointment provisions of both the Riccarton Bush Act 1914 and the Riccarton Bush Amendment Act 1947.

Of particular relevance is that the appointment of a community board member to the Trust is for a three year period.

In summary, there is no mechanism in the legislation to remove a Trustee member or shorten the member’s term of appointment.

Other aspects of the advice received are that:

·    The Council appoints its members to the Trust.

·    The members hold office for the shorter of three years or the period during which they are elected members of the community board.

·    The members may vacate the office of Trust member at any time otherwise they hold office until their successor comes into office or they cease to be elected members.

·    There are other grounds for the vacation of office – if the member dies, or becomes bankrupt, lunatic, or of unsound mind, or incapable of acting, resigns by notice in writing to the Trust, is absent from New Zealand for 12 months.

The legal conclusion provided therefore is that a review could not recommend that a members’ appointment be shortened or that a member be removed from office.

Accordingly, the Board is invited to receive the above information.

3.1.2   Riccarton Bus Lounge

The Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design report of March 2018 on the Riccarton Bus Lounge and the immediate surrounding area is attached (refer Attachment A). Also included (refer Attachment B) is the staff memorandum of 13 November 2017 previously held over by the Board on 28 November 2017.

The Board is asked to decide on its preferred next steps in terms of reviewing these documents.

A suggestion is that a small working group of members be tasked with this work and to bring any recommendations arising back to the Board for consideration.

3.1.3   Quarry Hill Reserve - Trees

A staff memorandum is provided (refer Attachment C) to reply back to the Board in response to measures taken arising from the deputation made to the Board on 14 February 2017 from Wendy Payne and Barbara Tappenden requesting the removal of some trees at the Quarry Hill Reserve, Kennedys Bush.

3.1.4   Council Bylaws - Reviews

During 2018, the Council is undertaking reviews of these bylaws:

·    Alcohol Restrictions in Public Places Bylaw 2009

·    Brothels (Location and Advertising of Commercial Sexual Services) Bylaw 2013

·    Public Places Bylaw 2008

·    Cemeteries Bylaw 2013 

A joint community board seminar on the matter will be arranged in April. Thereafter, it is anticipated that the Board’s Submissions Committee will be convened to consider the preparation of Board submissions on these bylaw reviews.

3.1.5   Local Government- Participatory Democracy- Part 2: Have Your Say

The Local Government- Participatory Democracy- Part 2: Have Your Say is a new education programme to be offered by the Christchurch City Council from July 2018 to school-going young people who are in years 7 to 13.  The purpose of the programme is to help the young people living in Christchurch to understand:

·     What community boards are;

·     The role community boards play towards the welfare of our Christchurch communities;

·     How community boards are part of and work in conjunction with the Christchurch City Council;

·     Details about their local community board; and 

·     How youth can positively engage with their local community board.

As part of this programme, staff would like to include two-minute video clips of one elected member representing each board area.  The video will cover:

·     Who the elected member is;

·     Which community board they are on;

·     Why they are on the community board;

·     What they enjoy about being on a community board;

·     What they love about their community;

·     What their community board are working on currently/recently/ in the near future that would be most engaging to young people; and

·     How the community board encourage and engage with young people to be involved with their community, have their say, and make the most of community board options/opportunities.

The video will be shown during the 'Have Your Say' Learning Through Action programme. On a programme, staff will match up the school they are teaching with their local community board.  In this programme, students will also learn about local body elections and take part in a mock deputation. 

The Board is invited to nominate its representative and staff will then work with that member. 

3.2       Board area Consultations/Engagement/Submission opportunities

3.2.1   Area Three of the Council’s University Parking Plan Review is currently open for public feedback until 29 March 2018. 

Many of the streets around the University campuses in Ilam are subject to high all day parking demand.  Proposals out for feedback include parking and signage changes in this area.  The local Ilam and Upper Riccarton Residents’ Association is supporting residents to be involved in this review.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3.2.2   The consultation period for the changes proposed to the Denton Park Management Plan and a partial change to the reserve classification for the proposed Hornby Library, Customer Services and Recreation Centre concluded on 26 March 2018.  The Council’s Hearings Panel will next be convened to hear submissions and formulate a recommendation to the Board for a decision. 

3.2.3   A report seeking another temporary alcohol ban for the immediate areas around the Riccarton Racecourse for the New Zealand Cup Day race meeting on 17 November 2018, will be going to the Council’s Regulatory Performance Committee on 11 April 2018. 

Low-level engagement is being undertaken in the area with key stakeholders and previous submitters, with a public information campaign planned for early November.  The Board has supported the temporary ban since 2015 and is invited to indicate its support or otherwise, for another ban in 2018.

3.3       Annual Plan and Long Term Plan matters

3.3.1   The consultation period for the Council’s Draft Long Term Plan commenced on 9 March 2018 and runs to 23 April 2018. 

The Board held three ward based community ‘drop-in’ sessions on the Draft Plan to engage with local communities on 16, 23 and 24 March 2018.  Information was also available at the Culture Galore event held at Ray Blank Park on 10 March 2018.

The Board’s Submissions Committee met on 15 March 2018 to begin the preparation of a Board submission and a further meeting is scheduled for 28 March 2018 towards the completion of this work.

3.4       Board Reporting

3.4.1   Board members are invited through the issued weekly meetings schedule, to forward any items they would like highlighted for inclusion in the Board’s Newsletter, Newsline and the Report to the Council.

4.   Community Board Plan 2017-19 – Update against Outcomes

4.1       The attached schedule (refer Attachment D) provides a summary of the measures as at March 2018 regarding the Outcomes and Priorities contained in the Community Board Plan 2017-19.

5.   Significant Council Projects in the Board Area

5.1       Strengthening Community Fund Projects

5.1.1   An Off the Ground Fund application was received from the Hope Presbyterian Community Church towards a Love Your Local Working Bee at Gilberthorpe School.  The total allocated was $149.54.

5.1.2   The Halswell-Hornby-Community Board provided funding to the Deans Avenue Precinct Society towards the upgrade of the Brockworth Walkway Mural.  Artists Damian Holt, Courtney Paige and Zac Harding have completed this mural work.

     

         

 

5.1.3   Organisers of the Amazing Place Riccarton event advised that this event would not take place due to a low number of contributing organisations committing to their involvement in the event.  As the Amazing Place event was combining with the Connect event, community members were encouraged to attend Connect which was still running.  Funding granted by the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board for the event has not been uplifted.   

5.2       Other partnerships with the community and organisations

5.2.1   Staff are working with the Templeton Residents’ Association to provide support and advice where appropriate, with any submission process that may arise from the lodgement of the Fulton Hogan quarrying proposals.

6.2       Upper Riccarton War Memorial Library.  The library will be operating a mini library from the former Plunket room at the rear of the library. Some of the memorial boards have already been removed and are being stored at the Rannerdale Veterans Home. Others still in the library, as well as some of the more valuable books, will also go to Rannerdale for safe keeping and/or display.  The annual dawn memorial service for Anzac Day 2018 that the library hosts, will still be held albeit at Rannerdale Veterans Home. Rannerdale will also hold their usual service later in the morning.  It is envisaged that the memorial boards will be on display for both services.

As far as the building itself is concerned, it remains up to the library’s Trust to decide on the longer term future of the building.  The Trust is beginning to work through its options in this regard.

6.3.2   Culture Galore

Perfect weather saw a huge attendance at the annual Culture Galore event at Ray Blank Park on Saturday 10 March 2018.  Over 6,500 people enjoyed the tasty ethnic cuisine from over 40 food stalls, the colourful and vibrant stage performances and the free fun activities for the kids.

Now in its sixteenth year, Culture Galore continues to be very popular with generations of families showing such pride in their cultures dressing up and performing together.  The event also brought together the diverse communities that call Christchurch home, to celebrate and share their cultures with each other.

The event is supported jointly by the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community and Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood Boards, and by Plains FM.
