4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1- change the hours of operation of the Taxi Stand (preferred option).

·     Option 2 –Do nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     None.

 

5.   Context/Background

Background

5.1       Prior to the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes, there was a significant need for afterhours Taxi Stands associated with what was commonly known as the Oxford Strip café /bar area. In November 2009, a report was submitted to the Hagley /Ferrymead Community Board, recommending Taxi stands on this section of Hereford Street, applying at night from 11 pm onwards. This met the needs at the time. The report and its recommendations was approved.

5.2       Following the earthquakes, a Parking Rationalisation Project was submitted to the Parking Subcommittee in April 2015.  The objective of this Rationalisation report was to ensure that kerbside areas in the inner CBD did not have short periods of the day where one restriction ended, then a short time occurred with unrestricted parking, followed by another restriction.  This was to avoid the problem of non-compliance of the parking management by over staying following the short unrestricted period.  This was the case in Hereford Street where between 9:00am and 5:00pm pay and display parking applied, followed by unrestricted parking from 5:00pm to 11:00pm, when the taxi stands came into force.  To rectify this, the April 2015 report recommended that the Taxi Stand should apply from 5pm onwards. This report was approved and implemented.

5.3       Council staff have been contacted by the owner of Apollo Yoga, based on Hereford Street.  Their concerns were that customers cannot park close to the business due to the night time taxi stands, creating personal security issues at night for persons having to walk longer distances to their vehicle.   The business owner affected states that they were not consulted on the April 2015 changes and the report of April 2015 does not mention consultation. No documentation can be found in Council records on consultation for this particular road section.

5.4       This section of roadway has multiple current parking conflicts, due to constantly changing developments and/ or the introduction of new businesses. This report deals to an immediate concern. Staff will review the entire block length, to optimise parking in the near future. This will involve significant and comprehensive consultation with all affected, which will take a few months. The intention is to respond as soon as possible to this current request.

5.5       While times have been approved, an inspection of the current signage shows that varying and incorrect times of operation are shown on the signs now.

6.   Option 1 – Change the hours of Operation of the Taxi Stand (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Change the times of operation of the night time Taxi Stand, back to commencing at 11pm at night, instead of the current 5pm night time start. This will allow customers of Apollo Yoga somewhere to park close to the business, avoiding the personal security issue at night for persons having to walk longer distances to their vehicle.

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 nil. The area is not currently utilised by taxis at this time of the evening. Taxi stands are located close by (Hereford Street River Bridge).

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       No persons or organisations are directly affected by this option due to consultation with the major Taxi companies.  Their views are either in favour, or no response received.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

6.5.1   Amendment necessary.

Financial Implications

6.6       Cost of Implementation - $400.

6.7       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – Covered under the Area Maintenance Contract and the effect will be minimal to the overall asset.

6.8       Funding source – Traffic Operations budget- Signs Regulatory.

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 Parking Restrictions Subcommittee have delegated authority from the Council to exercise the delegations as set out in the Register of Delegations dated March 2016.  The list of delegations for the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee includes the resolution of parking restrictions and traffic control devices within an area of the Central City.

6.11    The installation of any parking restriction signs and/ or markings must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

 

Risks and Mitigations

6.12    None.

Implementation

6.13    Implementation dependencies  - Not applicable.

6.14    Implementation timeframe – as soon as possible, following approval by this committee.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.15    The advantages of this option include:

·   Improved parking opportunities. Evidence that Council is being responsive to the existing need.

6.16    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   None.

7.   Option 2 – Do Nothing

Option Description

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: 10.3.8 Optimise operational performance.

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 - Provide a mixture of P10 and P$60 parking and mobility space on Armagh Street between Colombo Street and Manchester Street

·     Option 2 - Do Nothing.

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

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

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     None identified.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       There are several changes to Armagh Street between Colombo Street and Manchester Street that have warranted a review of parking for this block. 

5.2       The north side of Armagh Street has P$60 parking the entire length.  This is currently appropriate as there are no businesses operating on the north side of the street and the parking supports businesses in New Regent Street. 

5.3       Until recently, the Intercity coach facility for the CBD operated from the Manchester Street end of Armagh Street.  This has now been replaced with a new facility on Lichfield Street outside the Bus Interchange.  It is proposed to reallocate the redundant coach parking area as P$60 parking.

5.4       The Piano is currently under construction and fronts onto the south side of Armagh Street to the west of New Regent Street.  Discussions with the Director of The Piano have identified the need for short term parking immediately outside the building.  The short term parking is to facilitate parent pick-up and drop-off of students of the music school and pick-up and drop-off associated with concerts held at the venue. 

5.5       It is not possible to provide a publicly accessible mobility parking space on The Piano site, and hence a mobility parking space is proposed near the building entrance. 

5.6       A new vehicle crossing servicing The Piano removes two existing P10 parking spaces on Armagh Street. 

5.7       Existing P$60 parking on the south side of Armagh Street at the Colombo Street end of the block is proposed to remain. 

5.8       The parking space authorised for the Wizard of New Zealand (immediately west of New Regent Street) is unaffected by this proposal. 

 


 

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

Option Description

The recommended option is to install a mixture of P10 and P$60 parking on the southern side of Armagh Street, with the addition of a mobility parking space, as shown on Attachment A.   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 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       Businesses down New Regent Street and on Armagh Street were consulted via site meetings and letter drop of proposed P$60 parking in place of the redundant coach parking.  One written response and three email responses were received, all in favour of the proposal.

6.5       Changes to the west of New Regent Street are contained within The Piano frontage and were requested and supported by the Director.  It is noted that the additional P10 parking supports the P10 parking removed by The Piano vehicle crossing. 

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.7       Cost of Implementation - Approximately $2,000 to revise markings, signage, construct a pedestrian cut down for the mobility space and relocate one parking meter. 

6.8       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs - Covered under the area maintenance contract and effect will be minimal to the overall asset.  Overall this proposal introduces two additional pay and display parking spaces. 

6.9       Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

Legal Implications

6.10    The Local Government Act 1974 and 2002, and the Christchurch City Council Traffic and Parking Bylaw 2008 provides the Council with the authority to install stopping and parking restrictions by resolution.

6.11    The Council has delegated the authority to install parking restrictions in this part of the Central City to the Parking Restrictions Subcommittee. 

6.12    The installation of any traffic control devices such as signs and road-markings associated with the installation of parking meter spaces must comply with the Land Transport Rule: Traffic Control Devices 2004.

6.15    Implementation timeframe - Approximately four weeks once the area contractor receives the request.
