8.3      Dead Trees – South Brighton

            The Board discussed the staff intent to get an ornithologist to check for any important ecological values associated with the trees.  The arborists will identify the dead trees to be removed and the trees at risk of falling so the scope of work can be determined.  Depending on contractor availability, the aim is to programme this work over the next 3-6 months.

Community Board Resolved BPCB/2016/00074

That the Burwood/Pegasus Community Board:

8.4      Urban Transition Project

9.    Elected Member Information Exchange

Part B

·             Southshore Residents Association Annual General Meeting – the Board received an update – approximately 70 people had attended and a new committee was elected.  Key issues remain as estuary edge, stormwater pipes and natural hazards.

4.   Key Points

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

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 - Install 'No Stopping' Restrictions (preferred option)

·      Option 2 - Do Nothing

4.3      Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·      Reduces the risk of a crash by improving sightlines at the intersection of Clarevale Street / Burwood Road

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·      Removes 2 car parking spaces.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1      Waitakiri Primary School is located approximately 100 metres north of Clarevale Street on Burwood Road.  Many care givers and children exit the school on foot to travel south down Burwood Road and have to cross over Clarevale Street. 

5.2      Clarevale Street is a cul-de-sac approximately 270 metres in length.  At its eastern end there is a passageway from the school grounds that allows for care givers to park and collect children from within Clarevale Street.

5.3      At school pickup time Clarevale Street experiences a high demand for parking and has many vehicles turning to and from Burwood Road, this coincides with numerous pedestrians wishing to cross Clarevale Street.  Currently, vehicles can park close to the corner (in the area where the 'No Stopping' lines are proposed) which limits the visibility for pedestrians looking into Clarevale Street to see approaching vehicles and for the exiting drivers to see the pedestrians waiting to cross.

5.4      The lack of visibility makes it hard for pedestrians to judge appropriate gaps in order to begin to cross Clarevale Street.

5.5      It is proposed to extend the 'No Stopping' restrictions as shown on Attachment A to provide better visibility for both pedestrians and drivers.

 


 

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

Option Description

Extend the existing 'No Stopping' restrictions to the driveways of the adjacent properties as shown on Attachment A.Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.3      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

6.4      Two properties are specifically affected by this proposal.  Feedback in favour of the proposal has been received from one property and no feedback was received from the other.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

6.5      This option is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies as it is improving road safety near a school.

Financial Implications

6.6      Cost of Implementation - $100.

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

6.8      Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

Legal Implications

6.9      Part 1, Clause 5 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2008 provides Council with the authority to install parking restrictions by resolution.

6.10    The Community Boards have delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations.  The list of delegations for the Community Boards includes the resolution of stopping restrictions and traffic control devices.

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

Risks and Mitigations

Community Views and Preferences

7.4      This option is inconsistent with community requests for improvement to the intersection.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.5      This option is inconsistent with Council’s Plans and Policies as it does not address a safety matter that has been raised by the School.

7.6      Cost of Implementation - $0

7.7      Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - $0

7.8      Funding source - Not applicable.

Legal Implications

4.2      The following feasible options have been considered:

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

·      Option 2 - Do Nothing

4.3      Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·      Reduces the risk of a crash by preventing vehicles parking within the intersection area.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·      Removes 2 car parking spaces.

 

5.   Background

5.1      A request from a customer was received regarding the issue of parked vehicles outside No. 2 Wainoni Road preventing any southbound traffic on Wainoni Road continuing when a vehicle is waiting to turn right into Kerrs Road.

6.   Site Information

6.1      Wainoni Road is a Minor Arterial road that runs from New Brighton Road to Kerrs Road.  Wainoni Road merges into Kerrs Road at this intersection.  Kerrs Road runs north- south between Buckleys Road and Avonside Drive, it changes from a minor arterial road into a local road at this intersection (with the length from Wainoni Road to Avonside Drive being classified as a local road).

6.2      This 'T' intersection is Give Way controlled where Kerrs Road (local road) intersects with Wainoni Road (minor arterial) on the bend.  South bound traffic on Kerrs Road traffic must give way to Wainoni Road traffic.

6.3      The issue arises when a southbound vehicle on Wainoni Road wishes to make a right hand turn into Kerrs Road and due to the volume of opposing traffic flow during peak times the right turner has to wait for a gap within the traffic.  If a vehicle is parked within the intersection area outside No.2 Wainoni Road any vehicles following behind are also forced to wait as the gap left isn't large enough for a vehicle to pass through.  This is not the level of service that is expected for a minor arterial road as their main function is to carry through traffic from one region to another with minimal delays.

6.4      This also creates a safety risk within the intersection area as if any cars are required to perform an evasive manoeuvre the parked car blocks the space vehicles would swerve into to avoid a collision.

6.5      The other parts of the intersection area all contain 'No Stopping' lines and it is proposed to extend the existing 'No Stopping' lines around the bend up to No. 4 Wainoni Road to keep the intersection area free from parked vehicles.

 


 

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

Option Description

Install 'No Stopping' restrictions within intersection area of Wainoni Road / Kerrs Road as shown on Attachment A. 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 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      Ten affected property owners and residents were advised of the recommended option by letter and no responses were received.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

7.5      This option is consistent with Council’s Plans and Policies as it is addressing a safety concern at an intersection.

Financial Implications

7.6      Cost of Implementation - $150.

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

7.8      Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

Legal Implications

7.9      Part 1, Clause 5 of the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2008 provides Council with the authority to install parking restrictions by resolution.

7.10    The Community Boards have delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations.  The list of delegations for the Community Boards includes the resolution of stopping restrictions and traffic control devices.

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

Risks and Mitigations

Implementation

7.13    Implementation dependencies - Community Board approval.

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

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 - Install 'No Stopping' Restrictions (preferred option)

·      Option 2 - Do Nothing

4.3      Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·      Reduces the risk of a crash by improving sightlines at the intersection of Bowhill Road / Grantley Street

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·      Removes 4 car parking spaces.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1      Bowhill Road is classified as a collector road and links Palmers Road to Marine Parade.  Grantley Street is classified as a local road and is controlled by stop signs at the intersection with Bowhill Road.

5.2      There are no marked "No Stopping' restrictions at the intersection.

5.3      Ráwhiti School is located approximately 100m north of this intersection along Leaver Terrace and has North New Brighton Community Childcare Centre as a neighbour.  During school drop off / pick up times Leaver Terrace, Grantley Street and Bowhill Road all experience a high demand for parking.

5.4      Vehicles have been observed parking close to Grantley Street along Bowhill Road which blocks visibility for vehicles waiting at the stop lines on Grantley Street wishing to exit onto Bowhill Road. This encourages drivers to nose out into the intersection for better visibility.  The approaches to the intersection are narrow, such that there is little space for motorists to take evasive action to avoid any vehicle that pulls out unexpectedly.

5.5      In addition to the visibility being blocked for vehicles the parked vehicles obstruct visibility for pedestrians wishing to cross Bowhill Road at the cut downs provided at the intersection.

5.6      It is proposed to install 'No Stopping' restrictions as shown on Attachment A to provide better visibility for both pedestrians and drivers.

1.   Seagull-Proof Rubbish Bins

 

The following advice has been received from the Coastal Regional Parks:  Staff are very pleased to hear that the new 'seagull-proof' rubbish bins by A.E.Tilley Ltd are considered a success by the Board.  The primary issue was to replace the sub-standard and problematic light weight bin design that had been installed in the two central New Brighton foreshore car parks several years ago.  It was the poor quality and design of those bins that was the source of most of the loose litter observations and complaints, being able to be 'excavated' by both wind and wildlife.  At this stage all of the non-preforming bins have been replaced and we believe that the new solid bin design has significantly reduced litter being blown or pulled out of bins by the wind, birds or dogs, therefore the primary cause of the issue has been resolved. Any recent loose litter now seen in car parks with the new bins could just as easily come from direct dumping by visitors and while we are confident from our monitoring that the overall reduction in loose litter has been significant, we would be happy to hear of any concerns to the contrary.

 

Coastal staff are also confident that the existing 'capped' tilting rubbish bin design by Street Furniture NZ, which is widely in use along the sandy beach-front areas is more than adequate for their purpose and very successful in both robustness and design. Any examples of litter around these bins would most likely be from a delay in servicing or simply overflow on high use days rather than design issues, so we would prefer to initially address the cleaning regime, as we see the design as being fairly functional and appropriate.

 

The new enclosed bin design is particularly suitable for developed park areas and street applications and any future use of the design will be up to those responsible for the development of such areas as the whale pool playground or other amenity areas where litter bins need to be replaced. Hopefully the new bins have now set a higher local standard and the existing wooden 'slatted' bins with the circular steel lids will be replaced by the new design. Coastal staff will definitely consider the new design for use in amenity areas under their management, such as around surf clubs and foreshore car parks etc, when existing bins are required for replacement. These new sea-gull proof bins have also been installed at Ferrymead's Wind Sports Car park area to help combat the elements there.

2.   Customer Service Requests – Roadside Litter

On 7 June 2016 the Board discussed the high number of roadside litter complaints and requested staff to provide a breakdown, comment and a map showing the litter “hotspots”.

A link to an interactive map showing the 62 recorded litter dumping events within the ward has already been circulated to members.  Of these, 27 originated within or on the edge of the red zone which indicates deliberate dumping.  With the possible exception of a few events, there is no clear indication that any of the events resulted from accidental littering while vehicles are in transit to the Ruru Road refuse station.

3.   Groups of Interest

The Board may care to give staff an indication of the various groups of interest that they would like to regularly meet and interact with in a workshop setting next electoral term. This could include local school Principals.

4.   Riverbank Vegetation Mowing

The Board has on occasion noted that mowing of the overgrown riverbank vegetation does not extend down to the water’s edge. The banks are maintained by two different teams at the Council, being Land Drainage and Parks. Parks take care of the road/land side of the stopbanks and Land Drainage the river side. The Land Drainage team has recently asked City Care to cut the vegetation along the banks on the river side of the stopbanks due to a "mohawk" that was left. I understand the Parks team has also asked their contractor to do the same on the road/land side.
