1.       Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1          The purpose of this report is for the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee to consider the petition and this staff report and endorse the staff recommendation not to install warning lights on the back of traffic signals on the one-way streets.

Origin of Report

1.2          This report being provided to fulfil the Council resolution of 29 October 2015 for the John Lawrence petition on warning lights on the back traffic lights on one-way streets and a staff report to be referred to the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee.

2.       Significance

2.1          The decision(s) in this report low significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

2.1.1     The level of significance was determined by comparing factors relating to this decision against the criteria set out in the Councils Significance an Engagement Policy.

2.1.2     The background details on the assessment of the magnitude of the problem outlined in this report reflect the assessment.

 

3.       Staff Recommendations

That the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee receive the report and recommend to Council:

1.              That warning lights are not installed on the back of traffic signals on one way streets.

2.              Note that staff will audit all one way street intersections and consider the use of additional signage and markings that comply with traffic regulations to enhance driver awareness where required.

 

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

4.2          The following feasible options have been considered:

·           Option 1 - Do not install warning lights on the back of traffic signals (preferred option)

·           Option 2 - Install No Entry signs (RG-9) on the back of traffic signals

·           Option 3 - Install warning lights on the back of traffic signals

4.3          Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1     The advantages of this option include:

·           It is the option that staff consider will best help to reduce the likelihood of crashes involving vehicles travelling the wrong way on one way streets

·           It includes ongoing changes to the one way system through An Accessible City (AAC) projects and speed limit changes to reduce speeds in the inner zone.

4.3.2     The disadvantages of this option include:

·           It does not address the petition request to put flashing lights on the back of traffic signals on the one way streets.

 

5.       Context/Background

Petition

5.1          On 3 October 2015 a fatal crash occurred at the intersection of Salisbury and Durham Streets, both being one way streets.  This involved a vehicle travelling the wrong way on Salisbury Street colliding with a vehicle travelling south on Durham Street. The crash was the result of a vehicle travelling the wrong way on a one way street.  It is understood from discussions that the fatal crash on 3 October 2015 may have involved a driver who was under the influence of alcohol driving at excessive speed, and who had driven through several intersections the wrong way. 

5.2          On 29 October John Lawrence presented the following petition to Council with over 1,000 supporting signatures / names.

·      "Too many people go the wrong way down the one way streets. We need to put warning lights warning lights i.e. red flashing lights, on the back of the intersection lights warning people they are going the wrong way. Too many people have had near misses or been killed because of people doing this. I have just been sitting in hospital with the two family's that had two amazing people hit by a car going the wrong way. No one else should ever have to go through what they have had to deal with. Unfortunately one of the most amazing people in the world was killed because of this."

Traffic Regulations - Signs and traffic control devices

5.3          Standard signs to deter drivers from travelling the wrong way in one way streets are:

·      One Way (R3-12), No Left Turn (R3-1) or No Right Turn (R3-2) signs installed close to the intersection on side roads approaching a one way street.

·      Turn Left (R3-8) or Turn Right (R3-10) signs may be used where the side road forms a T intersections with a one way street.

·      No Entry (R3-4) signs may be installed at intersections to prevent drivers turning into a one way street in the wrong direction.

·      There are also the Wrong Way (R3-7) or Wrong Way Go Back (R3-7.1) signs which may be installed facing traffic travelling in the wrong direction on a one way street.

5.4          There is no standard sign or traffic control device that includes warning lights on the back of traffic signals.  The New Zealand Transport Agency have advised that the traffic signals expert on the Traffic Control Devices Steering Group does not recall requests for such a device.

5.5          Auckland have experienced issues with wrong way drivers on the motorway system and a report "The Right Way for Wrong Way Drivers - Guidance for Design & Treatment of Divided Roads" (30 April 2015) has been prepared. This report is focused on divided roads and motorways but is intended to be a practical guide for the implementation of measures to reduce the risk of wrong way driving. 

5.6          The report includes a tool box of measures to reduce the risk of wrong way driving with measures ranging from good use of no entry , turning restriction and wrong way signs to very high cost variable message (wrong way) signs suitable for motorways and motorway ramps. The report does not include any options of warning lights on the back of traffic signals on urban one way streets. 

The crash problem

5.7          Attachment 1 is a detailed analysis of crashes at intersections in Christchurch for the 2010 to 2014 five year period and wrong way in one way street crashes for 2015. In summary:

·      The New Zealand Transport Agency Community at Risk Register 2015 ranks Christchurch City as high personal risk for crashes at intersections compared with other territorial authorities.  This is in part due to the grid layout of the network and the high number of intersections in Christchurch.

·      In total there were 2183 injury crashes and 3409 non-injury crashes at intersections in Christchurch in the 2010 to 2014 five year period.

·           40% of the intersection crashes were at signalised intersections with 175 people killed or seriously injured at traffic signal controlled intersections.

·           Only two of the crashes (one minor and one serious injury crash) involved vehicles travelling the wrong way down a one way street and entering an intersection from the wrong direction. Both involved drivers under the influence of alcohol.

·           Four crashes involved vehicles crashing when travelling from a two way road to travel the wrong way on a one way street (two minor and one non-injury crashes).

·      In 2015 there were a further two reported crashes involving vehicles travelling the wrong way on one way streets. The crash on 3 October plus one non-injury crash in February. In both these crashes it is understood the drivers travelling the wrong way were under the influence of alcohol.

5.8          It is understood from discussions that the fatal crash on 3 October 2015 may have involved a driver who was under the influence of alcohol driving at excessive speed, and who had driven through several intersections the wrong way.

5.9          Crashes involving vehicles travelling the wrong way in one way streets are only a very small proportion of the crashes at signalised intersections in Christchurch.

Warning lights on back of traffic signals

5.10       As noted in 5.4 above there is no standard sign or traffic control device including warning lights on the back of traffic signals. 

5.11       A technically correct solution would be to use No Entry signs (RG-9) as pictured below. They are reflectorised, and automatically illuminate at night. They could be mounted on the rear of the signal lanterns, at the entrance to the ‘upstream’ side of the intersection. From a distance these may look like red signals, giving the impression that there is a red light and stop line there, thereby encouraging traffic towards them.

5.12       International research supports concerns that any such warning lights must be designed so as not to encourage drivers to continue travelling the wrong way in a one way street. Drivers seeing lights ahead may assume they are travelling to correct way.

5.13       As a rough order estimate approximately 75 sites at $3,500 per site would be needed to include "No Entry" treatments at all the one way street traffic signals. This gives a total cost estimate of $262,500.

5.14       Flashing traffic signal type signs have not been considered as they would not be a suitable technical solution and would also require resource consent.  More detailed consideration would be needed to consider cost implications but they could cost three to four times as much as the no entry signs noted above (Total cost of say $1.0m)

5.15       The crash data shows crashes involving wrong way travel are rare and do not identify a prioritised list of intersections or one way streets to be treated.

Other considerations - speed limit, audit of existing signs and markings

5.16       A 30km/h inner zone speed limit is proposed for the central city and would include some of the one way streets and most of the intersecting two way roads.

5.17       Reduced speeds would result in reduced crash severity.

5.18       The existing signs at the entry points and along one way streets will be audited to confirm if additional signs and markings are required. This will include consideration of adding additional arrows to clearly show the one way direction of travel for vehicles turning onto one way streets from significant drive ways.

The audit will also consider if there is a need for use of Wrong Way (R3-7) or Wrong Way Go Back (R3-7.1) signs.

Staff report conclusion

5.19       Only four reported crashes since 2010 involved vehicles travelling the wrong way in a one way street and in all of these the drivers were under the influence of alcohol. Three happened at intersections (one fatal, one serious and one minor injury crash).

5.20       Crashes involving vehicles travelling the wrong way in one way streets are only a very small proportion of the crashes at signalised intersections in Christchurch.

5.21       Costs to install illuminated No Entry warning signs on all traffic signals on the one way streets would be about $262,500. The crash data does not support justification of this cost especially as all the crashes have involved alcohol impaired drivers who may or may not have been influenced by warning signs or lights. Illuminated No Entry signs can actually influence drivers to believe they are travelling the correct way from a distance.  Costs for flashing lights could be around $1.0m.

5.22       It is considered the change in speed limit plus an audit of the existing signs and markings would provide a better value action to improve the safety on the one way street system.


6.       Option 1 - Do not install warning lights on the back of traffic signals (preferred)

Option Description

6.1          This option is to maintain the existing traffic controls on the one way system and will include any improvements to the signs and markings to deter drivers from entering and travelling the wrong way in one way streets.

6.2          An audit of the existing signs and markings is being undertaken and recommendations for any improvements will be implemented under standard operating budgets.

6.3          This option also includes the proposed implementation of a 30km/h inner zone speed limit that will reduce the speeds on some of the one way streets and most of the intersecting two way roads.

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.5          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

6.6          Staff have not undertaken any consultation to seek community views as the recommended option is considered standard business for Council in terms of managing the network.

6.7          The petition did show community concern about the safety of the one way streets and the tragic results of people travelling the wrong way with over 1,000 supporting the petition.

6.8          Staff share these concerns but do not agree that flashing lights on the back of signals will address the problem.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.10       Cost of Implementation - $10,000 (but dependent on result of audit of exiting signs)

6.11       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - there will be no significant additional maintenance costs

6.12       Funding source - normal operating budgets

Legal Implications

6.13       There are no legal implications as this recommended option is complying with the appropriate Land Transport Rules.

Risks and Mitigations

6.14       There is a risk of dissatisfaction for the public and the petition supporters that would need to be balanced by the value for money explanation that higher costs solutions are not justified.

Implementation

6.15       Implementation dependencies  - not applicable

6.16       Implementation timeframe - not applicable

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.17       The advantages of this option include:

·      It is the value for money option that staff consider will best help to reduce the likelihood of crashes involving vehicles travelling the wrong way on one way streets.

·      It includes ongoing changes to the one way system through An Accessible City (AAC) projects and speed limit changes to reduce speeds in the inner zone.

·      It complies with the Traffic Regulations for traffic control devices.

·      It addresses the likelihood of drivers entering one way streets to travel in the wrong direction rather than erecting non-standard signs or flashing lights that may signify drivers are travelling to correct way.

6.18       The disadvantages of this option include:

·      It does not address the petition request to put flashing lights on the back of traffic signals on the one way streets.

7.       Option 2 - Install No Entry signs (RG-9) on the back of traffic signals

Option Description

7.1          Install No Entry signs (RG-9) on the back of traffic signals at all the intersections.

7.2          The No Entry signs are reflectorised and automatically illuminate at night. They could be mounted on the rear of the signal lanterns, at the entrance to the ‘upstream’ side of the intersection.

Significance

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

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          See 7.6 to 7.8 above.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.6          This option is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies

Financial Implications

7.7          Cost of Implementation -  $262,500

7.8          Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - there will be no significant additional maintenance costs

7.9          Funding source - this could be funded exiting budgets for regulatory signs

Legal Implications

7.10       There are no legal implications as this recommended option is complying with the appropriate Land Transport Rules.

Risks and Mitigations

7.11       There is a risk of dissatisfaction for the public and the petition supporters that would need to be balanced by the value for money explanation that higher costs solutions are not justified.

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:

·      It is a technically correct solution and the signs could be mounted on the rear of the signal lanterns, at the entrance to the ‘upstream’ side of the intersection.

7.15       The disadvantages of this option include:

·      From a distance these may look like red signals, giving the impression that there is a red light and stop line there, thereby encouraging traffic towards them.

·      International research supports concerns that any such warning lights must be designed so as not to encourage drivers to continue travelling the wrong way in a one way street. Drivers seeing lights ahead may assume they are travelling to correct way.

·      There is currently no funding allocated for this work and therefore this project would need to come from existing road safety budgets and be prioritised against other road safety projects.

8.       Option 3 - Install warning lights on the back of traffic signals

Option Description

8.1          Install flashing warning lights on the back of traffic signals

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

8.3          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

8.4          This option is that requested by the petition to Council.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

8.5.1     Inconsistency - it is not a technically correct solution.

8.5.2     Reason for inconsistency - the installation of flashing lights on the back of traffic signals is not an approved traffic control device and would require specific approval from NZTA. A resource consent may also be required.

Financial Implications

8.6          Cost of Implementation - $1.0m

8.7          Funding source - there is currently no funding allocated for this work and therefore this project would need to gain funding through the annual plan process.

Legal Implications

8.8          The installation of flashing lights on the back of traffic signals is not an approved traffic control device and would require specific approval from NZTA. A resource consent may also be required.

Risks and Mitigations

8.9          Not applicable

Implementation

8.10       Implementation dependencies  - not applicable

8.11       Implementation timeframe - not applicable

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

8.12       The advantages of this option include:

·      It provides the solution requested in the petition to Council

8.13       The disadvantages of this option include:

·      It may encourage drivers to continue to travel the wrong way though intersections.

·      The crash data indicates drivers travelling the wrong way are unlikely to comply with the flashing lights due to being intoxicated or deliberately driving the wrong way.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

The purpose of this report is for the Council to:

·    formally agree to appoint the Greater Christchurch Public Transport Joint Committee with Environment Canterbury, Selwyn District Council and Waimakariri District Council in general accordance with Clause 30 and Clause 30A of Schedule 7 of the Local Government Act 2002;

·    enter into the attached Agreement (attachment 1); and

·    appoint three representatives to be members of the joint committee.

Origin of Report

1.1       This report is being generated to progress the Infrastructure, Transport and Environment Committee resolution ITEC/2016/00006 (to adopt in principle the establishment of a Greater Christchurch Public Transport Committee) and Council resolution CNCL/2016/00145 from 10 March 2016 (where the membership structure for the Joint Committee was adopted).

2.   Significance

2.1       The decision(s) in this report are 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 level of cost to Council and that the level of impact of this Agreement is confined to the partners involved. 

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Council:

1.         Resolves to appoint the Greater Christchurch Public Transport Joint Committee, with Christchurch City Council, Selwyn District Council and Waimakariri District Council, in accordance with Clause 30 and Clause 30A of Schedule 7 of the Local Government Act 2002;

2.         Resolves to enter into the agreement (attachment 1) between Christchurch City Council, Selwyn District Council and Waimakariri District Council in relation to a joint committee, to be known as the Greater Christchurch Public Transport Joint Committee, under Clause 30A of Schedule 7 of the Local Government Act 2002;

3.         Appoints [name 3 elected members/others (not staff)] as the Christchurch City Council appointed members of the Greater Christchurch Public Transport Joint Committee until the conclusion of the 2016 triennial general election under Clause 31 of Schedule 7 of the Local Government Act 2002;

4.         Resolves under Clause 30(7) of Schedule 7 of the Local Government Act 2002 that the Greater Christchurch Public Transport Joint Committee is not discharged on the coming into office of the members elected or appointed following the 2016 triennial general election; and

5.         Notes that members of Greater Christchurch Public Transport Joint Committee may be replaced following the coming into office of the members elected or appointed.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       The Committee is established under clause 30A of Schedule 7 of the Local Government Act 2002 (LGA), and in accordance with the Land Transport Management Act 2003 (LTMA), the Land Transport Act 1998, and the Local Government Act 2002.

4.2       As required by clause 30A of Schedule 7 of the LGA, a draft Agreement (attachment 1) has been developed by the the partner organisations and agreed by the respective CE's. 

4.3       The Agreement has been developed in line with Option 5b, which excludes any transfer of Christchurch City Council's delegations.

4.4       The Agreement specifies the number of members each party may appoint to the joint committee; how the Chairperson and Deputy Chairperson are to be appointed; the terms of reference for the joint committee; what responsibilities (if any) are to be delegated to the joint committee by each party; and how the Agreement may be varied.

4.5       Membership on this joint committee is to be agreed through this report and recommendations to fill the three positions made to Council.   Clause 31 of Schedule 7 LGA02 describes who can be a member of a committee (which provisions also apply to a joint committee):

·   (3)  The members of a committee may, but need not be, elected members of the local authority, and a local authority or committee may appoint to a committee or subcommittee a person who is not a member of the local authority or committee if, in the opinion of the local authority, that person has the skills, attributes, or knowledge that will assist the work of the committee or subcommittee.

·    (4) Despite subclause (3),—

(a)  at least 1 member of a committee must be an elected member of the local authority; and

(b)  an employee of a local authority acting in the course of his or her employment may not act as a member of any committee unless that committee is a subcommittee.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       In October 2014, the Mayoral Forum requested the Minister of Transport to initiate a review of governance and delivery arrangements for public transport, with a focus on greater Christchurch.

5.2       A working group comprising of Chief Executives from Environment Canterbury (ECan), Christchurch City Council (CCC), Waimakariri District Council, Selwyn District Council and Jim Harland from the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA), facilitated by Mike James from the Ministry of Transport, formed to progress the review.

5.3       McGredy Winder was selected to review and provide recommendations and options for improving public transport governance and decision making. 

5.4       Option 5 which is to establish a Greater Christchurch Public Transport Joint Committee (with no transfer of delegations from Territorial Authorities) is the preferred option from the Mayoral forum and this option has been progressed and put forward to all Councils.

5.5       On 11, February 2015, Council agreed in principle to establish a Greater Christchurch Public Transport Joint Committee with the other Urban Development Strategy partners, with a revision in the membership structure.

5.6       On 10 March, Council reconsidered its February resolution on altering the membership structure and agreed to the original proposal put forward by the partners for three representatives from ECan, CCC and one each from Selwyn and Waimakariri, with NZTA and CDHB as observers.

5.7       Council staff, under the direction of the CE's, have been working to develop the "Memorandum of Agreement" (the Agreement) in line with Option 5 of the McGredy Winder recommendations.

5.8       Council membership for the joint committee is to be determined through this report. 

6.   Option 1 - Agree to appoint the Greater Christchurch Public Transport Committee and enter into the Agreement (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Council agrees to the appointment of the Greater Christchurch Public Transport Joint Committee; and to enter into the Agreement (that includes the Terms of Reference and the membership structure) and appoint three representatives to join the Committee.

Significance

6.2       The level of significance of this option is low, consistent with section 2 of this report.  Engagement requirements for this level of significance are low as the existing working group would remain as it has been for over three years.

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       Community views have not been specifically canvassed for this issue.  Their views on public transport are captured through the ECan and Council Annual Plan processes.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

6.5       This option is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies

Financial Implications

6.6       Cost of Implementation - implementation costs for administration of the Committee are being covered by ECan.

6.7       Staff costs relating to the work that comes from this committee will need to come from existing budgets and may impact current and planned work programmes.

Legal Implications

6.8       Legal implications for this option has been address in previous reports and accepted as per the resolution to "agree in principle the establishment of the joint committee".

6.9       Parties have resolved through the Agreement that the Committee will not be discharged at the point of the next election, as in line with the provisions of Clause 30 (7) Schedule 7.

Risks and Mitigations

6.10    The risks associated with this option have been mitigated with the development of the Agreement and the Terms of Reverence.  Future risks will be associated with any relationship issues between the committee partners.

Implementation

6.11    It is proposed that the joint Committee is supported by a staff lead Steering Group. This group will guide the administration and the work of the Committee and be the link with the staff in each partnership organisation who is involved in the implementation of public transport matters.

6.12    There is a desire for the first meeting on the Joint Committee to be held in June prior to the local body elections.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.13    The advantages of this option include:

·   Greater involvement for the Council, and council staff, in all decisions and planning matters relating to public transport.  This will allow input into ECan Annual Plan related matters for public transport including fares, rates and overall investment in services.  

·   It will also allow for Council to influence longer term direction and planning for public transport, particularly the need for greater use of and integration of technology, opportunities in innovation and investment in rapid public transport corridors and services.  

6.14    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   This option may not represent the long term outcome that Council is seeking - which may be to integrate the urban elements of public transport. However, it may be a step towards this outcome.

7.   Option 2 - Status Quo

Option Description

7.1       Do not agree to appoint the Greater Christchurch Public Transport Joint Committee; and therefore do not enter into the Agreement (including the Terms of Reference and membership structure).

Significance

7.2       The level of significance of this option is medium which differs from section 2 of this report.  Relationships and governance of public transport will be affected if this option is continued. Decisions affecting the majority of public transport elements will be made without Council involvement, which is the status quo.  Engagement requirements for this level of significance are low.

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/does not>specifically impact Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.

Community Views and Preferences

7.4       Community views have not been specifically sought for this issue.  Their views on public transport are captured through the ECan and Council Annual Plan process.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

7.6       There are no financial implications above business as usual for this option.

Legal Implications

7.7       There are no legal implications for the Council if it does not agree to, and form the joint committee with the other Councils.  However, even if the Council does not join the proposed committee this does not prevent the other Council's from forming a joint committee if they choose, although its functions would likely be different from those currently proposed.

Risks and Mitigations

7.8       Significant risks, planning and delivery issues are likely to arise if Council was not a member of a joint committee that was established by the partners.

Implementation

7.9       There are not implementation priorities with this option. The Status quo would remain.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.10    The advantages of this option include:

·   There are limited advantages to this option. The status quo which is the Public Transport Working Group, is not achieving what needs to be done. There is no decision making or influence associated with this working group and limited resources are available to support it.

7.11    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Reduced ability to influence the planning and operation Public Transport and shape the future. 

·   The status quo relationship with the delivery partners will remain.

12.    Plan Change 84, Specific Purpose Airport Zone, Resolution to Make Operative.

Reference:

16/253854

Contact:

Ivan Thomson

Ivan.Thomson@ccc.govt.nz

941 8813

 

 

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       This purpose of this report is to recommend to Council that it makes operative the changes to the City Plan introduced by the decision on Proposed Plan Change 84 incorporating changes having minor effect.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is needed to satisfy the requirements of Section 17(2) of the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA).

2.   Significance

2.1       The decision in this report is of medium significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by the fact that the Change only directly affects one site and one owner (CIAL).  There are likely to be limited adverse effects beyond the Airport site, but there will be some economic benefits to the City and Region.

2.1.2   The community engagement and consultation outlined in this report reflect the assessment, and was undertaken in accordance with Schedule 1 of the RMA.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Council:

1.         Approves the changes of minor effect shown in Attachment A.

2.         Approves, pursuant to clause 17(2) of Schedule 1 of the Resource Management Act 1991, the changes to the District Plan introduced by its decision, subject to the changes to minor effect in Attachment A, on Proposed Plan Change 84 Specific Purpose Airport Zone.

3.         Authorises the General Manager, Strategy and Transformation to determine the date on which the changes introduced by Proposed Plan Change 84 become operative, and note that the Plan Change is deemed to be part of the Replacement District Plan, with any changes of minor effect identified in Attachment A, in accordance with Clause 4(3) of the Canterbury Earthquake (Christchurch Replacement District Plan) Order 2014.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       Commissioner Thomas issued his decision on Plan Change 84 (Special Purpose Airport Zone) on 29 January 2015, and it was notified at the end of February 2015. One appeal was lodged but this was subsequently withdrawn.  Change 84 has now completed all the statutory processes needed to make it operative.  Once made operative it is deemed to be part of the Replacement District Plan pursuant to Clause 4(3) of the Canterbury Earthquake (Christchurch Replacement District Plan) Order 2014, subject to any changes having minor effect.

4.2       Activity: District Planning

Service: 9.5.3:  Prepare prioritised programme of plan changes and get approval from the Council on an annual basis.

4.3       There are only two options:  make the plan change operative; or withdraw it.  Withdrawing the Change would not be appropriate given where the Plan Change has got to in the Resource Management process, and the long held expectation of the parties and the Independent Hearings Panel that Plan Change 84 will be made operative.

4.4       Minor amendments to the Council Decision version of Plan Change 84 ('changes of minor effect') are necessary to align it with the Replacement District Plan format and terminology.  These changes of minor effect are shown in Attachment A which will become the new proposal in Chapter 21, Specific Purpose Zone.   Hence the name of the Plan Change needs to be amended to Specific Purpose Airport Zone.  Attachment B provides an explanation of these minor changes.  Attachment C contains the Recommendation Report of the Independent Commissioner. 

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       Proposed Plan Change 84 to the Christchurch City Plan Special Purpose Airport Zone ('SPAZ') was notified in October 2013. It provides a policy framework for the SPAZ and clarity over what activities are anticipated to occur within the zone beyond those provided for by a designation of land for “Airport Purposes”. 

5.2       A total of 31 submissions were received in response to the public notification of the plan change.  These submissions were considered by Commissioner Paul Thomas who conducted a hearing over 5 days in August and September 2014. The main issues raised in submissions concerned traffic effects, amenity effects on adjoining rural land owners and whether trade suppliers should be permitted in the SPAZ. He recommended that the plan change be approved subject to several alterations to the provisions arising out of the principal issues raised by the submissions, including providing for trade suppliers. He also recommended that specific consideration be given to the jurisdiction and need for further review of the SPAZ as part of Stage 2 of the Replacement District Plan once the Panel’s decisions on the relevant parts of the plan within Stage 1 are known. The Independent Hearings Panel will be made aware of this part of the recommendation, but this is likely to be given limited weight by the Panel.  Any changes that are open to the Panel to address the Commissioner's recommendation, should they consider it necessary, will be prescribed by the scope of relevant submissions.

5.3       The decision attracted one appeal to the Environment Court but that has now been withdrawn. The Change, subject to the minor amendments shown in Attachment A, can now be made operative.

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       This purpose of this report is to recommend to Council that it makes operative the changes to the City Plan introduced by the decision on Proposed Plan Change 52 (Ruapuna Noise Management), incorporating changes that have minor effect.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is required to satisfy the requirements of Section 17(2) of the Resource Management Act 1991 (RMA).

2.   Significance

2.1       The decision in this report is of high significance in relation to the Christchurch City Council’s Significance and Engagement Policy.

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by the fact that the Change potentially affects a significant number of parties outside of the Ruapuna complex, and there has been a lengthy period of mediation and Court hearings.

2.1.2   The community engagement and consultation undertaken reflect the assessment, and was undertaken in accordance with Schedule 1 of the RMA.

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Council:

1.         Approves the changes of minor effect shown in Attachment 1.

2.         Approves, pursuant to clause 17(2) of Schedule 1 of the Resource Management Act 1991, the changes to the District Plan introduced by its decision, subject to the changes to minor effect in Attachment 1, on Proposed Plan Change 52 Ruapuna Noise Management.

3.         Authorises the General Manager, Strategy and Transformation to determine the date on which the changes introduced by Proposed Plan Change 52 become operative, and note that the Plan Change is deemed to be part of the Replacement District Plan, with any changes of minor effect identified in Attachment 1, in accordance with Clause 4(3) of the Canterbury Earthquake (Christchurch Replacement District Plan) Order 2014.

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       Commissioner Dunningham issued her decision on Plan Change 52 (Ruapuna Noise Management) on 24 April 2013, and it was notified at the end of May 2013. Two appeals were lodged and three other parties joined the proceedings under Section 274 of the RMA.  Change 52 has now completed all the statutory processes needed to make it operative.  Once made operative it is deemed to be part of the Replacement District Plan pursuant to Clause 4(3) of the Canterbury Earthquake (Christchurch Replacement District Plan) Order 2014 (OiC).

 

4.2       Activity: District Planning

Service: 9.5.3:  Prepare prioritised programme of plan change sand get approval from the Council on an annual basis.

4.3       There are only two options:  make the plan change operative; or withdraw it.  Withdrawing the Change would not be appropriate given where the Plan Change has got to in the Resource Management process, and the long held expectation of the parties and the Independent Hearings Panel that Plan Change 52 will be made operative.

4.4       Minor amendments to the Council Decision version of Plan Change 52 ('changes of minor effect') are necessary to align it with the Replacement District Plan format and terminology.  These changes of minor effect, which are enabled by Clause 4 (4) of the OiC, are shown in Attachment 1.  Plan Change 52, supplemented by other provisions that were outside the scope of the Plan Change, will become the new proposal in Chapter 21.10, Specific Purpose Ruapuna Motorsport Zone. Attachment 2 provides an explanation of these minor changes.

 

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       Proposed Plan Change 52 to the Christchurch City Plan Ruapuna Noise management, was notified on 3 October 2012. It provides provisions for managing the noise effects generated by motor racing and other activities at the Ruapuna Park Motorsport Complex.

5.2       A total of 41 submissions were received in response to the public notification of the plan change.  These submissions were considered by Commissioner Dunningham who conducted a hearing in February 2013, and the Council's decision was publically notified in May 2013. The issues raised in submissions mainly concerned the effects of noise on adjoining rural land owners. The Commissioner recommended that the plan change be approved subject to several alterations to the provisions arising out of the principal issues raised by the submissions, including the duration, time and frequency of racing events, and levels of noise deemed to be acceptable from those events.

5.3       The decision attracted two appeals to the Environment Court: one from 'Quieter Please'; and the other from the Canterbury Car Club. Mediation between the parties occurred over September to December 2013 but agreement was not reached.  Hearings in front of the Environment Court were held in June 2015, including matters that the parties sought under Section 293 of the RMA, primarily aimed at trying to ensure that the final Plan Change  could reflect the format used in the Replacement District Plan. The Court has now released its decisions and the Change, subject to the minor amendments shown in Attachment 1, can now be made operative.
