3.   Key Points

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

·     Level of Service: 10.3.8 Optimise operational performance.

3.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 - Install Parking and No Stopping Restrictions (preferred option)

·     Option 2 - Do Nothing

3.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

3.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Provides an effective parking scheme for the street that responds to changes in street use.

·     Meets the needs of adjacent and significant land uses

3.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     None identified

 

4.   Context/Background

4.1       The management of the Crowne Plaza Hotel have requested changes to parking management outside the re-established hotel site at the intersection of Armagh Street and Colombo Street. Previous reports have been submitted to the Subcommittee to provide short term drop off / pick up areas, as part of the Otakaro project for the Victoria Square and environs and as part of The Piano development.

4.2       With the Crown Plaza now established as a significant accommodation provider for tourists within the CBD, the hotel management has identified an additional need for drop off / pick up facilities for guests arriving by private vehicle, SPSV (taxi) and larger PSV (coaches etc), directly outside the hotel.

4.3       The Crowne Plaza is contained within the Performing Arts Precinct (PAP).  The nearest neighbour within this street block is The Piano. The building immediately adjacent to the Crowne Plaza, and affected by these proposed changes, is the former PSIS /Kens Cameras building. This building is vacant and will not be re-established for commercial purposes as it will be acquired as part of the PAP.

4.4       As part of discussions with The Piano Management, they would desire a change to the times of operation of the P60 parking on the opposite side of Armagh Street. The existing 60 minute time restriction extends into the evening. This is problematic for guests where performances etc can be longer than 60 minutes. The hotel management agrees with changing the time restriction to end at 5 pm, as they also have restaurant clients during the evening period. Additionally, The Piano management have requested unrestricted / free parking on the north side of Armagh Street on Sundays.

4.5       Following discussions with retailers in New Regent Street, there is a very mixed reaction to parking changes on the north side of Armagh. As this is likely to take some time to fully consult with all affected, staff have committed to further detailed consultation on the wider parking management of the New Regent Street environs.

4.6       On the hotel’s Colombo Street frontage, a short term drop off / pick up for guests (two parking spaces) and a SPSV (taxi) stand (three spaces) is requested. These changes would be entirely outside the hotel frontage, with the vacant land towards Gloucester Street being part of The PAP.

 


 

5.   Option 1 - Install No Stopping Restriction (preferred)

Option Description

5.1       The recommended option is to install a mixture of P5. P10 and SPSV on Colombo Street and Armagh Street, as shown on Attachment A. 

Significance

5.2       The level of significance of this option is low and is consistent with section 2 of this report.  Engagement requirements for this level of significance includes the consultation with the owner and occupier of any property likely to be injuriously affected by the option.

Impact on Mana Whenua

5.3       This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to 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

5.4       These changes are in response to requests by the existing property occupiers in this area.

5.5       The Team Leader Parking Compliance supports this option.

5.6       The Team Leader –Parking Management (parking machines) agrees with this change. Note: The parking on the entire east side of Colombo Street, between Armagh and Gloucester is $5 per day. The objective is to reclassify this parking as it tends to be used by all day /commuter parkers. The remaining parks, just south of the new SPSV stand will be the standard P$60 parking.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

5.8       Cost of Implementation - $500 for the installation of traffic controls, plus $750 for consultation and the preparation of this report

5.9       Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

5.10    Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - Covered under the area maintenance contract and effect will be minimal to the overall asset.

Legal Implications

5.11    Part 1, Clauses 7 and 8 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 provides Council with the authority to install parking restrictions by resolution.

5.12    The Parking Restrictions Subcommittee has delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations and includes the resolution of parking and stopping restrictions.

5.13    The installation of any signs and/or markings associated with the parking and stopping restrictions must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

Risks and Mitigations

4.   Key Points

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

4.1.1   Activity: Parking

·     Level of Service: 10.3.1 Provide appropriate number of metered parking spaces within the four Avenues (central city)

·     Level of Service: 10.3.8 Optimise operational performance.

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 - Install additional parks (preferred option).

·     Option 2 - Do Nothing. Proceed with previously approved plan, resolved by the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee on 19 April 2018, resolution PRSC/2018/00009.

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Provides five additional car parks and one motorcycle stand to Durham Street North its intersection with Colombo Street.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Maintains current car parking numbers.

·     Reduction in proposed landscaping area.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       The Parking Restrictions Subcommittee approved parking changes to the project An Accessible City Kilmore Street, inclusive of Kilmore Street and Durham Street north intersection on 19 April 2018. This project was subsequently approved by Council on 22 April 2018.

5.2       The intersection design provides a speed reducing threshold gateway. A cell phone tower by Spark Telecom NZ, has been approved to be located in the kerb buildout which forms the threshold.

5.3       Staff have been liaising with Spark NZ and their engineering and planning representatives since early last year, to determine the most suitable location for the tower. The proposal to locate the tower onto Durham Street was governed primarily by the desire to bring the structure inside the low (30km/h) speed zone, as these large structures are non-frangible (unforgiving) on impact with a vehicle.

5.4       The speed reducing threshold itself, houses the cell tower inside the kerb line. The length of threshold is designed to accommodate the cell tower. However, staff have reached an agreement with Spark NZ to shift the cell tower further to north closer to the intersection, still remaining within the threshold.

5.5       The 30km/h zone threshold for Durham Street south-bound traffic was determined for this location under the CER Act.

5.6       The relocation of the tower northwards and shortening the gateway threshold provides for three additional car park spaces on the west side, two additional car park spaces and one motorcycle stand on the east side. In total, an additional five car parks and one motorcycle stand will be provided. The original threshold was longer than what has been provided for around the central city. Designed logic was to increase traffic calming measures in this location, however the proposed design is consistent with standards and other speed reducing thresholds in the central city.
