4.1.2   The recommended road and/or right-of-way names have been checked against existing road names in Christchurch and bordering districts, for duplication, alternative spellings, or other similarities in spelling or pronunciation to avoid the potential for confusion. The recommended names are considered sufficiently different to existing road names.

4.1.3   The recommended road and/or right-of-way names have been checked against the Council’s Roads and Right-of-Way Naming Policy dated 2 November 1993. The recommended names are considered to be consistent with this policy.

4.1.4   The recommended road and/or right-of-way names and types have been checked against the Australian and New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 4819:2011 Rural and urban addressing. The recommended names are considered to be consistent with this Standard unless otherwise stated below.

4.1.5   Under the Roads and Right-of-Way Naming Policy the names considered must be requested by the developer. There is not an ability to consider alternative names without first checking whether there are any duplications or similarities with other road and right-of-way names.

4.1.6   Consultation has been undertaken with Land Information New Zealand who have raised no concerns with the proposed road names.

4.1.7   The requests have been accompanied by an explanation of the background to the names which are summarised below.

4.2       Stoneridge Downs (RMA/2017/1374)

4.2.1   Road names have been requested by Onetrac Limited for roads at the Stoneridge Downs subdivision in Cashmere which fronts onto Cashmere Road.

4.2.2   The road names have been chosen in accordance with the theme of historic links with the neighbouring Halswell Quarry/Kennedy’s Bush, rolling land form of local hills, expansive vistas towards the western mountain ranges and the increasing diversity of native birds that frequent the well vegetated valley.

4.2.3   The names in order of preference for each road are:

Road 1

·        Saddle Vale Rise - Referenced to the subdivision theme emphasizing local land form as the main road slowly rises from valley floor towards the saddle at the head of a steep valley.

·        Kepler Rise - Referenced to the subdivision theme emphasizing local land form as main road slowly rises from valley floor towards the saddle at the head of a steep valley.

ROW 1

·        Quarry Rim Lane - Referenced to the subdivision theme with the popular “Quarry Rim” walking track around the crater edge of the neighbouring Halswell Quarry Reserve.

·        Kepler Ridge Lane - Referenced to the subdivision theme with views from ROW 1 directly towards the Southern Alps mountain ranges.

·        Cooper Ridge Lane - Referenced to the subdivision theme.

 

ROW 2

·        Tui Vale Lane - Referenced to the subdivision theme with increasing diversity of native birds that frequent the well vegetated valley. A lane that runs along the flat between the hills servicing up to seven properties.

·        Rock Wren Lane - Referenced to the subdivision theme with increasing diversity of native birds that frequent the well vegetated valley.

·        Falcons Crest Lane - Referenced to the subdivision theme with increasing diversity of native birds that frequent the well vegetated valley.

ROW 3

·        Stoney Creek Lane - Referenced to the subdivision theme. A feature of ROW 3 is the prominent stone lined waterway (using locally sourced rock), which meanders down the hill, through the    quarry rock lining, after rainfall.

·        Boulder Creek Lane - Referenced to the subdivision theme. A feature of ROW 3 is the prominent stone lined waterway (using locally sourced rock), which meanders down the hill, through the    quarry rock lining, after rainfall.

·        Rockstone Lane - Referenced to subdivision theme. A feature of ROW 3 is the prominent stone lined waterway (using locally sourced rock), which meanders down the hill, through the    quarry rock lining, after rainfall.

4.2.4   The preferred name for each road is listed first and the alternative names thereafter. It is not clear on the meaning of Kepler in Kepler Rise, however noting it is not a preferred name that has been recommended for approval.

4.3       Halswell Downs (RMA/2017/2007)

4.3.1   Road names have been requested by the Halswell Downs Trust for roads at the Halswell Downs subdivision in Cashmere which is bounded by Sutherlands Road, Cashmere Road, Hendersons Road and Sparks Road.

4.3.2   The road names have been chosen in accordance with the theme of historic locality and tying the road names back to the natural environment of the site.

4.3.3   The names in order of preference for each road are:

ROAD 1

·        Bunz Road - the Bunz drain runs along the east side of the subdivision. It is spring fed from two or three springs within or adjoining the subdivision. The spring fed drain runs into the Cashmere Stream on the southern boundary of the subdivision and eventually feeds into the Heathcote River. Eels and trout live in the waterway. The springs are protected and will be planted with native trees. Naming the main entrance road, which curves to also run parallel to the drain, after Bunz drain will be a reminder of its origin and significance.

·        Henry Williams Road - The Reverand Henry Williams M.A. was Vicar of Halswell from 1898 after the formation of Halswell into a parochial district in that year. He was born in England in 1871 and accompanied his parents to New Zealand in 1879. He was educated at Christ College and Canterbury College. He was ordained a deacon in 1895 and a priest in 1896 by the Bishop of Canterbury. He served as the curate of Riccarton and Halswell from 1895 until 1898 when he was appointed vicar. He was also the Anglican Chaplain of what is now known as the Hillmorton Hospital

 

ROAD 2

·        Welsh Road - after Miss Gabrielle Patricia Welsh, a local identity who lived in Sutherlands Road in the adjoining property to Halswell Downs, with her brother for 80 years, and who in January 2002 received a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit (MNZM) for services to the community and persons with disabilities. In her later years she moved to the Anthony Wilding Retirement Village where she lived until passing away. A fitting way to remember someone who gave so much of her time to so many – a women of great character.

·        Sheehan Street - John Sheehan was a farmer in Halswell. He was born in Tipperary, Ireland in 1850 and accompanied his parents to New Zealand in 1860, landing at Lyttelton in the ship ’Clontarf’.

ROAD 3

·        Ned Paterson Street - Ned Paterson was the Halswell Quarry Manager from 1901 until his retirement in 1938. In 1927 a house was built for him and his family, and was known as the Quarry Manager’s House, and since the quarry became a recreational park in 1990 it has been called ‘Paterson House’ in honour of the first family to live there. The three-bedroom dwelling is said to have been built as a show home to demonstrate the potential of quarry stone for modern houses.

·        Hean Street - Named after Victor Hean, the architect who designed the Quarry Manager’s house c1926.

·        Beamsgate Road - an old flower, gift and craft supply shop that was located in Sutherlands Road for many years until c2000. It was operated by the resident owner and her husband and was well known and frequented by the local Halswell community.

General Revocations

5.         Approve that any other existing traffic control and/or restriction made under any Act, Rule or Bylaw that is contrary to or in conflict with any of the above recommendations, be revoked.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       The recommendations in this report are consistent with the anticipated outcomes of the Traffic Safety and Efficiency Service Plan in the Council's Long Term Plan (2018 - 2028).

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Administrative changes to reflect existing/as-built traffic environment (preferred option)

·     Option 2 – Do nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Re-resolving the existing heavy vehicle restrictions under the Council’s Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 will enable the Police to better enforce these restrictions.

·     The recommendations require no physical works, with the possible exception of some replacement heavy vehicle restriction signage, and therefore have little (if any) associated cost.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     No identified disadvantages.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       A number of streets in the city have Heavy Vehicle Restrictions.  These were established under Section 16A of the Land Transport Act 1998 (the Act). 

5.2       Subsequent to any restriction imposed by the Council, Section 16A was amended to be only used as a mechanism for temporary Heavy Vehicle Restrictions.  The savings provisions are such that any resolutions made under Section 16A cease to have legal effect from 11 August 2018. 

5.3       As part of the 2017 review, the Council inserted Clause 19 Control of Vehicles on Roads, which provides an alternative mechanism to retain existing Heavy Vehicle Restrictions and create new ones. 

6.   Option 1 - Administrative changes to reflect existing/as-built traffic environment (preferred)

6.1       This option seeks to re-establish, and address enforcement issues associated with existing Heavy Vehicle Restrictions in place around the city by resolving the restrictions under the Council’s Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017. Maps identifying the locations of these heavy vehicle restrictions are provided in Attachments A to C. These recommendations also require no physical works, with the possible exception of some replacement heavy vehicle restriction signage, and therefore have little (if any) associated cost.

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.3       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

6.4       The recommendations for this option relate only to administrative that support the current operating conditions of the road network. It is considered that the recommendations in the preferred option have no material impact on road users, adjoining property owners or other stakeholders and, as such, it is considered unnecessary to engage or consult with those parties in this instance.

6.5       Notwithstanding the above, it is noted that some Seymour Street residents have previously contacted Council staff, Community Board members and the local Member of Parliament in regard to concerns over the enforceability of the existing Heavy Vehicle Restriction in that road. Re-establishing the existing Seymour Street heavy vehicle restriction by resolution under the Bylaw may help to address the residents’ concerns, albeit subject to the availability of the Police to resource enforcement activities of this nature.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.7       Cost of Implementation – Nil

6.8       Funding source – Not applicable

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

Legal Implications

6.10    Existing Heavy Vehicle Restrictions in Christchurch were established under Section 16A of the Land Transport Act 1998.  An amendment to Section 16A came into force on 10 August 2017 that prevents Section 16A from being used for the creation of permanent Heavy Vehicle Restrictions.  Existing notices given under Section 16A cease to have effect beyond 12 months from when the amendment came into force. 

6.11    Part 2 Clause 19 of the Traffic and Parking Bylaw provides the Council with the authority to establish Heavy Vehicle Restrictions (subject to conditions as the Council sees fit) by resolution.

6.12    The Delegations Register sets outs authority for making decisions on Council matters.  The power to make decisions under Part 2 Clause 19 of the Traffic and Parking Bylaw is delegated to the Community Boards. 

6.13    The installation of any traffic signs and/or markings with traffic control devices must comply with Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

Risks and Mitigations

6.14    No identified risks

Implementation

6.15    Implementation dependencies – Community Board approval

6.16    Implementation timeframe – Immediately upon Community Board approval (no physical works are required, with the possible exception of some replacement heavy vehicle restriction signage).

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.17    The advantages of this option include:

·   Re-resolving the existing heavy vehicle restrictions under the Council’s Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2017 ensures continuing enforceability.

·   The recommendations require no physical works, with the possible exception of some replacement heavy vehicle restriction signage, and therefore have little (if any) associated cost.

6.18    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   No identified disadvantages.

7.   Option 2 – Do nothing

Option Description

7.1       This option would maintain the status quo in relation to the existing heavy vehicle restrictions that were established under Section 16A of the Land Transport Act 1998.  These cease to be enforceable from 11 August 2018. 

Significance

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

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       Refer paragraphs 6.4 and 6.5

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

7.6       Not applicable

Legal Implications

7.7       Existing Heavy Vehicle Restrictions made under Section 16A of the Land Transport Act cease to have legal effect (Refer paragraphs 6.10 to 6.13). 

Risks and Mitigations

7.8       Existing Heavy Vehicle Restrictions cease to have legal effect and are not enforceable.   If this option is approved and became common knowledge, the existing restrictions could cease to be effective. This can be remediated by resolving the recommendations of the preferred option. 

Implementation

7.9       Not applicable

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.10    The advantages of this option include:

·   No identified advantages

7.11    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Expiry of legal status of existing Heavy Vehicle Restrictions, existing restrictions no longer enforceable.

9.        Richmond Drainage Reserve - Longhurst - Proposed Pathways 

Reference:

18/674765

Presenter:

Peter Barnes, Senior Planner Open Space

 

 

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board to approve the construction of two short sections of pathway within the Richmond Drainage Reserve. The two paths (each path is 2.5 metres wide x three metres long) will link to the adjacent Knights Stream School site from an existing pedestrian pathway.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated in response to a request from the Ministry of Education.

2.   Significance

2.1       The decision in this report is of a 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 scale and intensity of the proposal.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations 

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

1.         Approve the Ministry of Education’s request to construct two pedestrian pathways on the Richmond Drainage Reserve to connect the adjacent Knights Stream School site with the existing pedestrian pathway in the reserve.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       This report supports the Council's Long Term Plan (2018 - 2028):

4.1.1   Activity: Parks and Foreshore

·     Level of Service: 6.8.2.5 Parks are provided managed and maintained in a clean, tidy, safe, functional and equitable manner (Asset Condition) - Structures, fixtures and furniture - condition average or better: 95 per cent

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 – Approve the construction of sections of asphalt path on Richmond Drainage, to provide access for children to the adjacent Knights Stream School site.

·     Option 2 – No paths constructed. Status quo

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     Improved student connectivity and movement to proposed Knights Stream School site. The Ministry of Education advise these linkages will assist in easing congestion on the Richmond Avenue/Killarney Avenue side of the site, and through the school car park.

·     Improved visual surveillance within Richmond Drainage Reserve, and the adjacent Neil Graham Park.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     No disadvantages identified

 

5.   Background

Delegations Register

The Council Delegations Register identifies the Community Boards as being able to approve landscape changes within a Council reserve (Delegations Register reference clause 5.16). This includes the construction of pathways.

Richmond Drainage Reserve

5.1       The Richmond Drainage Reserve runs north to south, parallel to the western boundary of the Knights Stream School site. The drainage reserve connects Tongariro Street and Richmond Avenue.

5.2       The drainage reserve has a seamless unfenced boundary with the Neil Graham Park to the east which has a playground and an open space area.

5.3       The Richmond Drainage Reserve has an existing boundary fence to the west with the Knights Stream School site. A 2.5 metres asphalt pathway runs within the Richmond Drainage Reserve parallel to the school site boundary, connecting Tongariro Street and Richmond Avenue. The path is approximately three  metres from the school site boundary fence.

5.4       The drainage reserve has an area of 5,833m2, and the adjacent Neil Graham Park is 4,055m2 in area.

Knights Stream School

5.5       The Ministry of Education has approached Council staff seeking permission to construct two pedestrian pathways to link the new school with the existing pedestrian path in the Richmond Drainage Reserve.  The Ministry of Education is constructing the new school including the two proposed pathway linkages during 2018. Opening is scheduled for the 2019 school year (refer Attachment A).

5.6       The Ministry of Education is fully funding the construction of both paths.

 


 

6.   Option 1 – Construct paths on Richmond Drainage Reserve (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       The Ministry of Education propose to construct two asphalt paths from the gates on their boundary, eastward to connect with the existing pathway at the Richmond Drainage Reserve.

6.2       Each path is proposed to be 2.5 metres wide (consistent with the existing path) and approximately three metres in length from the existing drainage reserve path to the school site boundary.

Significance

6.3       The level of significance of this option is low consistent with section 2 of this report. This is because of the minor scale and intensity of this option.

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       It is noted that no specific user group or residents’ association is active in the area. No person or group is expected to be negatively affected.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.7       Nil. The Ministry of Education will fund all path construction costs.

6.8       The maintenance and ongoing costs of the proposed two paths (each 2.5 metres x approximately three metres) are considered to be minor, and will be funded by existing ongoing maintenance budget.

Legal Implications

6.9       There is no legal issues relevant to this decision.

Risks and Mitigations

6.10    There are minimal risks associated with this proposal.

Implementation

6.11    Implementation undertaken by the Ministry of Education, who have stated that they expect the work to be undertaken during late 2018.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.12    The advantages of this option include:

·   Improved visual surveillance for all Richmond Drainage Reserve and Neil Graham Park users.

·   Improved access and shorter travel times for Knights Stream School students. This will include easing congestion on Killarney Avenue and Richmond Avenue side and through the school car park.

6.13    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   No significant disadvantages have been identified.

7.   Option 2 – No path construction -Status Quo

Option Description

7.1       No additional paths to be constructed. 

Significance

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

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 impact Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.

Community Views and Preferences

7.4       It is noted that as there is no specific user group or residents’ association active in the area, no persons or groups are expected to be affected.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

7.6       There are no financial implications with no path construction/status quo.

Legal Implications

7.7       There are no legal issues relevant to this option.

Risks and Mitigations

7.8       There are minimal risks associated with this option.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.9       No advantages of this option have been identified.

7.10    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   School students will not have a paved path to provide a short access route and short travel time to the school site. Foot traffic over grass to and from the school gates at the boundary is likely to create a worn and sometimes muddy area, possibly requiring increased maintenance.

·   If students do not use the proposed access points (and if paths are not provided), this may increase congestion on the Killarney Avenue and Richmond Avenue side, and through the school car park.

8.2       In the lead up to the World Championships Angus is required to train at Lake Karapiro near Cambridge, twice a day for eight weeks where he is staying in accommodation provided by Rowing New Zealand with the other three members of the New Zealand Junior Rowing crew. 

8.3       Angus has been rowing for four years for Christchurch Boys’ High School and the Canterbury Rowing Club and his ultimate goal is to represent New Zealand at the Olympics. In the interim, Angus hopes to continue to be selected for the Under 21 and Under 23 programmes and then make selection to the New Zealand Elite Rowing Team. 

8.4       This year, Angus was awarded the Cheltenham Trophy for outstanding rowing performance and leadership for his school team. He was also joint winner of the Senior Oarsman Trophy at Christchurch Boys’ High School. Angus also received gold in the Under 19 Canterbury Championships and silver at the New Zealand Secondary School Rowing Championships.

8.5       Having been selected to represent New Zealand, Angus has now been offered a place in the Pathways to Podium programme; a prestigious nationwide programme delivered by Sport New Zealand which helps emerging athletes and coaches prepare for high performance sport. Angus hopes this will also help him to achieve his goals.

8.6       After school, Angus hopes to study at the University of Canterbury and continue to row for Canterbury. He would also like to start coaching so he can give back to the sport and encourage other young people to row. 

8.7       Angus has raised $1,600 towards the trip so far through applying to the New Zealand Racing Board and Canterbury Rowing Association.

3.1       Memos/Information/Advice to the Board

Matai Street East – New Cycle Path and Cycle Pedestrian Signalised Crossings Project at Matai Street/Deans Avenue, Fendalton Road/Harper Avenue and Deans Avenue

At its meeting on 15 July 2014, the former Riccarton/Wigram Community Board considered a combined Part A and Part C report seeking specific recommendations to the Council, and for other Board decisions to be made under delegated authority on those Riccarton/Wigram specific elements of the proposed new cycle path and cycle pedestrian signalised crossings project at Matai Street/Deans Avenue, Fendalton Road/Harper Avenue and Deans Avenue.

The former Fendalton/Waimairi and Hagley/Ferrymead Community Boards also considered the relevant sections of the same report in July 2014 as the ward boundaries at that time were contiguous.

The location specific recommendations for the then Riccarton/Wigram ward (both Part A and Part C) were adopted by the Riccarton/Wigram Community Board and the full staff report was subsequently included in a Joint Board Chairpersons Report to the Council meeting on 31 July 2014.

The Council was informed that the Riccarton/Wigram Community Board had resolved to adopt all of the staff recommendations for its area, subject to the Council’s adoption of a number of project related Part A recommendations which duly occurred.

The minutes of the Riccarton/Wigram Community Board meeting of 15 July 2014 were subsequently confirmed by the Board on 5 August 2014 but through omission, did not include the full wording of the Part C decisions.

The contents of the decisions made are contained in Attachment A.

The purpose of bringing this matter to the Board’s attention now is to request that the Board formally receive the information presented and note it for record purposes.

A notation and the inclusion of these decisions will be entered by staff in the Minute Book of the Board’s meeting of 15 July 2014.

5.2.1   New Zealand Institute of Sport - Get Set Go Workshop

Get Set Go is a workshop and guide to running community programmes and events which are held throughout the year across the city and are open to community organisations, sports clubs and recreation groups. 

A workshop has recently been delivered to two classes at the New Zealand Institute of Sport based in Riccarton, with over sixty students attending a tailored version, specifically aimed at preparing them for future careers working in community sport.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The attending students are currently studying the New Zealand Institute of Sport Diploma in Sport Management and Exercise Prescription.

In addition to the Get Set Go Workshop, the students will also have the opportunity to participate in the planning and running of various community events to be held from October 2018 to March 2019, including Hoon Hay Hoops, Hornby Hoops, Hoon Hay Fiesta, Global Football Festival and Connect 2019, thereby gaining practical experience in their chosen field.   

5.3       Community Facilities (updates and future plans)

5.3.1   Upper Riccarton War Memorial Library

As previously reported to the Board, the Upper Riccarton War Memorial Library is currently operating from the former Plunket building annexe at the rear of the library.

As previously reported to the Board, the building which is owned by Upper Riccarton War Memorial Library Incorporated, was closed in November 2017 due to earthquake damage.  The future of the building remains under active consideration by the library.

 

5.3.2   Yaldhurst Memorial Hall

As the Board will recall, a report on future options for the Yaldhurst Memorial Hall was deferred following a meeting held in December 2017 with the Yaldhurst community and representatives of the Yaldhurst Rural Residents’ Association. 

The community requested a six months period in which to further investigate and consider community-led options for the earthquake damaged facility.

While this work is continuing, it is hoped to be in a position to report back to the Board within the next few months.  

5.4       Infrastructure Projects Update

5.4.1   Ngā Puna Wai Sports Hub

The facilities for stage one of the Ngā Puna Wai Sports Hub have made significant progress. The premier hockey turf is now completed with the second almost finalised, and the stand under construction.

The car park adjacent to the athletic track is ready for use.  The track itself needs only to have completed the staggered Start and Finish lines.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



 

 

 

 

5.4.2   Halswell Domain Skate Park - Update

With a big effort to complete the design work, construction of the skate park is due to commence in late August 2018. The steel for the site has been ordered and the storm water basin changes will be completed alongside the construction. Project completion is scheduled for late December 2018.

5.4.3   Knights Stream Skate Park - Update

The Knights Stream Skate Park is progressing well and despite some weather delays, all the concrete work has been finished. The next stage involves the completion of the landscaping and furniture installation. Project completion is still expected by mid August 2018.

                        

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5.4.4   Riccarton Road Update

Deans Avenue to Harakeke Street Section

Construction of the Riccarton Road to Harakeke Street section is completed apart from the traffic signal installation at the railway crossing. Some poles have been installed with delivery of the remaining bespoke poles expected by the end of July. The delay is due to the workload of the supplier.

Project staff will be working with KiwiRail to complete the installation and connection to the rail signals. The pedestrian/cycle crossing will then become operational. Meantime, the bus lanes are partially open awaiting the crossing completion and pedestrians are limited in being able to cross the bus and traffic lanes until the signal controls are activated.

 

Harakeke Street to Matipo Street Section

 

This work is currently out to the market awaiting tenders from prospective contractors with tenders closing on Friday 10 August 2018.

 

A longer tender period has been provided due to the complexity of the work. It is hoped to award the contract in October 2018.

 

Further community engagement will occur after the contractor is appointed.

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

6.1       Riccarton Racecourse – Temporary Alcohol Ban

A further temporary alcohol ban was approved by the Council on 28 June 2018 for the local area surrounding the Riccarton Racecourse for New Zealand Cup Day on 17 November 2018.

It will be recalled that the request from the Canterbury Racing Club and Riccarton Park Function Centre for the temporary ban was supported by the Board on 27 March 2018.

6.2       Templeton Community

A submission writing workshop arranged and run by the Templeton Residents' Association was well received by attendees. 

The workshop was facilitated by local Council staff and provided information on compiling written submissions to decision-making processes including resource consent applications, Long Term Plans, and local projects.

6.3       Wonderful Me

This project, developed as a collaboration between the University of Canterbury, secondary school students and community organisations, has commenced.  Wonderful Me is a free four week course for children in the Riccarton area aged between eight and 13 years and centres on affirming uniqueness and self-worth, building healthy friendships with a clear anti-bullying focus.

The Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board provided funding to the University of Canterbury Foundation for the project, bringing the two levels of students together to provide community-based solutions to community issues. 

Initiators of the successful projects have been working with local community groups to develop and bring the ideas to fruition.  The painting of the water treatment box in Shand Reserve was another project developed out of this funding.

 

 

6.4       Council Graffiti Programme - Ten Year Anniversary - Invitation

The Council’s Graffiti Programme will be celebrating its Ten Year Anniversary on Friday 23 November 2018 from 4pm to 6pm at the New Brighton Community Centre.
