             Kerry Little, on behalf of the Akaroa Resource Collective Trust, spoke to the Board regarding the future use of the Council owned “Yew Cottage” at 40 Rue Jolie, Akaroa.  She was supported by Sue Grimwood, Akaroa Resource Collective Trust, Patsy Turner and Kirsten Hartley-Hall, Akaroa Op Shop and Leigh Hickey, Akaroa Area School.

 

             Ms Little asked the Board to seek Council’s endorsement to retain Yew Cottage for community use and to delay any decision about the future of it, when discussing the staff report later in the meeting, until more investigation on how the community could utilise this building to its full potential is carried out.  She suggested several community uses for the building including as a centre for social services providers, a community hub and a meeting place for people who are socially isolated.

 

             Ms Little said the community was saddened that the property had been left to become so derelict even though people have been asking the Council for action over a number of years.

 

Ms Little and her supporters were thanked for attending the meeting and speaking to the Board.

 

Refer Clause 9 – Yew Cottage Options Report for the Board’s decision on this matter.

             Mr Rhodes said the Akaroa Bowling Club opposes the sale of Yew Cottage.  Although not ideal the Club would be prepared to share the car park with other community groups that may be interested in using the cottage.

 

             Mr Rhodes and Mr helps were thanked for their attendance and speaking to the Board on this matter.

 

Refer Clause 9 – Yew Cottage Options Report for the Board’s decision on this matter.

 

 

4.4       Steve Lowndes - Yew Cottage, 40 Rue Jolie

8.        Proposed Reserve Name Change for Two Reserves in Duvauchelle

Reference:

16/966251

Contact:

Russel Wedge

russel.wedge@ccc.govt.nz

941-8270

 

 

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Akaroa/Wairewa Community Board to recommend to Council the proposed name changes for Duvauchelle Reserve and Bayview Reserve and to recommend to Council to classify the reserves as recreation reserves under the Reserves Act s16(2A). (See Attachment A.)

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated to the Akaroa/Wairewa Community Board following a request from the local community to change the name of two local reserves in recognition of Ron Nuttall a local resident and his efforts associated with Bayview Reserve, and the Marshall family who have been involved in many community events and committees over the years with Duvauchelle Reserve.

2.   Significance

2.1       The decisions 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 author Russel Wedge, based on the suggested thresholds for assessing criteria.

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Akaroa/Wairewa Community Board:

1.         Recommends to Council to approve the proposed change of reserve names:

a.         From Bayview Reserve (Lot 55 DP 61182, 0.2457, address 48 Bayview Crescent) to Ron Nuttall Reserve, and

b.         From Duvauchelle Reserve (Lot 4 DP 55117, 0.6565 ha, address 6258 Christchurch Akaroa Road) to Marshall Reserve

2.         Recommends to Council to classify the following two reserves as recreation reserves as per Reserves Act 1977 s16(2A): Ron Nuttall Reserve ((Lot 55 DP 61182, 0.2457, address 48 Bayview Crescent) and Marshall Reserve (Lot 4 DP 55117, 0.6565 ha, address 6258 Christchurch Akaroa Road).

 

 

4.   Key Points

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

4.1.1   Activity: Neighbourhood Parks

·     Level of Service: 6.0.1 Neighbourhood Parks are maintained to specifications so parks are clean,  tidy, safe and functional

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 - To change the existing reserves to the recommended reserve names (preferred option)

·     Option 2 - The two reserves retain their existing names

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     The name change reflects the community and Mana Whenua wishes and request.

·     The name provides recognition of the work and commitment of an individual, and a family associated with two local reserves.

·     The proposed reserve names will hopefully reduce any future confusion with other reserves in the area, which have similar names e.g. Duvauchelle Reserve and Camping Ground and Lower and Upper Bayview Reserve.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     There are no known disadvantages.

 

5.   Context/Background

Background

5.1       The proposal is to change the existing name of Bayview Reserve (also known as Lower Bayview Reserve), at the south end of Bayview Crescent to Ron Nuttall Reserve in recognition of the time and effort given by Ron Nuttall, a long time Bayview Crescent holiday home owner who promoted, co-ordinated and did most of the planting in the reserve. Bayview Reserve was vested as a recreation reserve in the Banks Peninsula District Council on 17 August 1992. For clarification, there is a Nuttall Reserve in Christchurch, which means the name cannot be used again, but Ron Nuttall reserve is sufficiently different to differentiate the two reserves.

5.2       The proposal is also to change the existing name of Duvauchelle Reserve (sometimes referred to as Upper Bayview Reserve) on Bayview Crescent, to Marshall Reserve in recognition of the Marshall family who carried out the initial subdivision of the area. The Marshall family has been involved in many community events and committees over the years. Duvauchelle Reserve should not be confused with the nearby reserve known as Duvauchelle Reserve and Camping Ground, which is owned by the Department of Conservation.

5.3       Under the Reserves Act 1977, Section 16 (2A) any land that has been vested with the Council can declare that land to be a reserve providing it has been given a classification through the Council resolution. The classification of the reserve will provide the basis as to how the reserve should be managed and administered e.g. a recreation reserve compared to a drainage reserve.


 

6.   Option 1 – To change the existing reserves to the recommended reserve names (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       To change the existing name of Bayview Reserve (also known as Lower Bayview Reserve), at the south end of Bayview Crescent to Ron Nuttall Reserve and to change the existing name of Duvauchelle Reserve (sometimes referred to as Upper Bayview Reserve) on Bayview Crescent, to Marshall Reserve.

Significance

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

6.3       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are appropriate.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.4       The Mana whenua have been consulted on the proposed reserve name changes and they have endorsed the proposed names of Ron Nuttall Reserve and Marshall Reserve.

Community Views and Preferences

6.5       The proposed reserve names changes were requested by a resident in the community (letter received by the Akaroa/Wairewa Community Board meeting 19 December 2013). Public consultation was undertaken from the beginning of December 2014 until the beginning of February 2015. The submissions were in favour of the proposed name change.

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 – If there are any existing reserve signs on site there will be cost to replacing the old name signs with the new reserve name signs.

6.8       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – The maintenance of the signs will have been incorporated into the existing operational budgets.

6.9       Funding source – The replacement signs will be included as part of the Parks Units signage renewal budget.

Legal Implications

6.10    The renaming of the reserve complies with The Council Policy Register: Naming of Reserves and Facilities.

Risks and Mitigations

6.11    There are minimal, if any risks.

Implementation

6.12    Implementation dependencies - no known dependencies.

6.13    Implementation timeframe – the internal notification of the reserve name change on the Council’s SmartMap will be approximately one –two months after the names have been approved by the Council.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.14    The advantages of this option include:

·   The name change reflects the community and Mana Whenua wishes and request.

·   The name provides recognition of the work and commitment of an individual, and a family associated with two local reserves.

·   The proposed reserve names will hopefully reduce any future confusion with other reserves in the area, which have similar names e.g. Duvauchelle Reserve and Camping Ground and Lower and Upper Bayview Reserve.

6.15    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   There are no known disadvantages.

7.   Option 2 – The two reserves retain their existing names

Option Description

7.1       The two reserves Bayview Reserve and Duvauchelle Reserve retain their existing names and the proposal to rename the reserves as Ron Nuttall Reserve instead of Bayview Reserve, and Marshall Reserve instead of Duvauchelle Reserve is declined.

Significance

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

7.3       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are appropriate.

Impact on Mana Whenua

7.4       The Mana whenua have been consulted on the proposed reserve name changes and they have endorsed the proposed names of Ron Nuttall Reserve and Marshall Reserve, although 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       The community are specifically affected by this option due to public consultation having been undertaken and they endorse the proposed name change.

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 – There would be no implementation cost

7.8       Maintenance / Ongoing Costs – status quo would continue.

7.9       Funding source – There would be no additional funding implications.

Legal Implications

7.10    There may be legal implications as the community have been consulted on their view for the proposed reserve name change, which they endorsed. Under the LGA 2002 there may be a possibility the Council is not following the views expressed by the community.

Risks and Mitigations   

7.11    Risk event is low, if any.

Implementation

7.12    Implementation dependencies – no known dependences

7.13    Implementation timeframe – not applicable if proposed reserve names not adopted.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.14    The advantages of this option include:

·   New signage is not required

7.15    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Ignoring the results of the public consultation

·   Possible confusion continuing over the name or location of the existing reserves

2.1.1   The level of significance was determined by Russel Wedge, the author based on the suggested thresholds for assessing criteria.

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Akaroa/Wairewa Community Board:

1.         Receives this information report.

 

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       The public consultation period calling for suggestions and comments for the draft Takapuneke Reserve Management Plan commenced on Monday 25 May 2015 and closed at 5pm on Monday 29 June 2015. Seven responses were received with suggestions and comments for the draft management plan. These suggestions and comments were received and discussed by the Takapuneke Reserve Management Plan Project Team (TRMPPT) and have been considered in the preparation of the draft reserve management plan.

4.2       On the 12 June 2016 a workshop was held by the TRMPPT with the Onuku Rünanga at the Onuku Marae. The purpose of the workshop was for the Rünanga to discuss how they would like the reserve to be used and developed in the future. The workshop was very successful particularly with providing clarity and direction for the draft objectives and policies in the management plan. For the Council representatives of the TRMPPT at the workshop, the Rünanga explained some of the historical events that had occurred on the reserve and the significance of these events to Onuku Rünanga. At the end of the workshop it was agreed the next step was to have a site visit to Takapuneke Reserve.

4.3       On Sunday 16 July 2016 representatives from the TRMPPT and Onuku Rünanga, together with a few invited guests met on site at Takapuneke Reserve. The purpose of the site visit was to walk across the reserve to see if the suggestions made at the workshop on 12 June could be implemented in the future. The site visit went very well with everyone gaining a better understanding of the reserve. The information from the site visit will be used to assist with producing a landscape plan for the reserve.

4.4       At the TRMPPT meeting of 16 August a hand drawn draft plan was prepared of the reserve formalising the main points of the workshop and site visit with Onuku Rünanga. The next stage is to prepare draft policies and objects based on the outcome of the workshop and site visit to the reserve.

4.5       The approximate time line for the draft Takapuneke Reserve Management Plan is to have the written sections of the management plan completed in draft form before mid-December 2016. It is anticipated the draft reserve management plan will be ready to be presented to the Banks Peninsula Community Board in February 2017 requesting the Board’s approval to go out for public consultation. Once the public consultation period has closed, submissions heard and the draft plan revised it is anticipated the final draft of the reserve management plan will be presented to Council in October 2017.

4.6       The draft reserve management plan will be presented to Onuku Rünanga and any revisions made to the plan before it is presented to the Banks Peninsula Community Board in February 2017.

 

5.   Context/Background

Background

5.1       In the 1820s Takapuneke Reserve was a major trading village, primarily supplying visiting ships with dressed flax fibre.  A significant event involving the massacre of a large number of local Ngai Tahu whanau in 1830 resulted in Takapuneke becoming Tapu.  The monument at Greens Point on the edge of Takapuneke named after William Green commemorates the spot where the British raised their flag in 1840 to assume British sovereignty

5.2       In 2002 Takapuneke was registered as a Wahi Tapu Area by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust.  It is the first registered Wahi Tapu area on the mainland of the South Island.

5.3       In 2009 Takapuneke Reserve was classified as a Historic Reserve under the Reserves Act 1977, in recognition of the significant cultural heritage values associated with the site.

5.4       In December 2012 the Council adopted the Takapuneke Conservation Report.  The report identified a wide range of cultural heritage values of Takapuneke Reserve and is to assist with the planning for any future change while maintaining these values.  Section 17, Conservation principles and polices:  Introduction, states:  “This Conservation Report will inform and guide the heritage consideration of the Reserve Management Plan for Takapuneke”.

5.5       On 10 August 2014, The Onuku Rünanga and Christchurch City Council Takapuneke Reserve Management Plan Advisory Group, Terms of Reference was signed off by the Onuku Rünanga.  The Advisory Group is to act in an advisory capacity to assist the Council to prepare and develop a reserve management plan for Takapuneke Reserve in compliance with the Reserves Act 1977 (section 41).

5.6       The Reserves Act 1977 (section 41) states, that a reserve management plan will address key issues identified and shall provide for the use, enjoyment, maintenance, protection and preservation of such aspects for the purposes for which it is classified; such as historic, archaeological, cultural, educational and of other special interest (section 18, Historic Reserves)

4.   Key Points

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

4.1.1   Activity: Parking

·     Level of Service: 10.3.8 Optimise operational performance

4.2       The following feasible options have been considered:

·     Option 1 - Install Electric Vehicle Charger Parking 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:

·     Provides access to chargers for electric vehicles to charge their batteries.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Restricts the parking spaces only to electric vehicles for the purpose of charging their batteries.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       In October 2015 the Christchurch City Council adopted the Christchurch Energy Action Plan. The action plan includes Council programme areas of work relating to encouraging the uptake of electric vehicles, including the uptake of electric vehicle charging infrastructure by organisations in Christchurch. It is considered that when residents see publicly accessible electric vehicle charging infrastructure being available, that they may feel more comfortable about the purchase and use of an electric vehicle.

5.2       Council in conjunction with Orion New Zealand Limited is proposing to install electric vehicle chargers at a number of locations in Banks Peninsula and Christchurch.

5.3       Little River and Akaroa were identified as strategic locations for electric vehicle chargers to be installed. One charger location is proposed in Little River at the Little River Railway Station site. Two charger locations are proposed in Akaroa; one in Rue Brittan adjoining the Recreation Ground, and one in Beach Road outside the Akaroa Fire Station. See Attachments A (Plan TG128288), B (Plan TG130324) and C (Plan TG130323). These locations were selected based on their proximity to a suitable supply of electricity, their high profile and security, and for ease of locating and access for electric vehicle users.

5.4       In order for the chargers to be made as accessible as possible, it is proposed to restrict the use of these spaces to electric vehicles for the purpose of charging their batteries only, and also includes time limit restrictions to enable a turnover of electric vehicles within these spaces. The restrictions are proposed to operate at any time, to support around the clock access to the chargers.

 

 


 

6.   Option 1 - Install Electric Vehicle Charger Parking Restrictions (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       In Little River, install a P30 at any time parking restriction reserved for electric vehicles for the purpose of charging their batteries. A fast charger is proposed to be installed at this location, and as this requires a short time to undertake this activity, a 30 minutes at any time parking restriction is being proposed.

6.2       In Akaroa, at both locations install a P120 at any time parking restriction reserved for electric vehicles for the purpose of charging their vehicles. A regular charger is proposed to be installed at these locations, and as this requires a longer time to undertake this activity, a two hours at any time parking restriction is being proposed.

6.3       This option re-allocates two existing parking spaces at each of the three proposed charger locations for the activity of electric vehicle charging. Existing demand and supply for parking in the vicinity of each of the locations has been taken into account, but it is considered that the displacement of parking and access restrictions as a result of the proposal will be negligible.

Significance

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

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.5       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

6.6       A seminar was held with the Akaroa/Wairewa Community Board on 27 July 2016 to brief the Board on the project, including the proposed charger locations and parking restrictions.

6.7       An on-site meeting was held with a small group of stakeholders of the Little River community on 9 August 2016. This included a representative of the Little River Craft Station & Information Centre, and also the Little River Wairewa Community Trust. The outcome was that the group are agreeable to the proposal at the Little River Railway Station site. It was requested that parking spaces be line marked at the rear of the Little River Railway Station site to assist with the supply of parking spaces. This is intended to be progressed as a separate matter.

6.8       Representatives of the Akaroa I-Site and Akaroa District Promotions were consulted on the proposals for Akaroa, and both are agreeable to the proposal.

6.9       The Akaroa Fire Service are agreeable to the proposal outside of the Akaroa Fire Station in Beach Road.

6.10    The owners of the Peninsula General Store are not agreeable to the proposal opposite their business in Rue Brittan, due to the loss of parking spaces.

6.11    Contact has not been made with the owners of Vangioni’s Trattoria and Bar at the time of submitting the Board report, and their view on the proposal opposite their business in Rue Brittan is unknown.

6.12    The owner of the building which houses the Peninsula General Store and Vangioni’s Trattoria and Bar is not in support of the proposal in Rue Brittan, due to the loss of parking spaces.

6.13    As consultation has not been completed at the time of submitting the Board Report, an update will be provided at the Community Board meeting when this report is being considered.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.15    Cost of Implementation – Signage & Markings- $1500.

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

6.17    Funding source - Traffic Operations Budget.

Legal Implications

6.18    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.

6.19    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.

6.20    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

6.21    Not applicable.

Implementation

6.22    Implementation dependencies - Community Board approval.

6.23    Implementation timeframe – Late 2016 to coincide with the proposed installation of the electric vehicle chargers.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.24    The advantages of this option include:

·   Provides access to chargers for electric vehicles to charge their batteries.

6.25    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Restricts the parking spaces only to electric vehicles for the purpose of charging their batteries.

7.   Option 2 - Do Nothing

Option Description

4.   Key Points

4.1       Neighbourhood Week is a dedicated week in which individuals and groups are encouraged to get together and get to know one another locally.  This year Neighbourhood Week is to be held from 28 October to 6 November 2016.  Applications for funding closed on 19 August 2016.

4.2       Local community groups, including residents' associations and neighbourhood support groups, have been sent information inviting them to apply for the Neighbourhood Week funding that has been allocated by the Board.

4.3       A matrix outlining the applications and staff recommendations is attached (attachment A), along with the Neighbourhood Week Guidelines (attachment B) that accompany the application details.

4.4       By the closing date, five applications had been received.  The applications were sorted and assessed to ensure that they met the guidelines for the Neighbourhood Week events, and staff recommended an amount to be allocated to each application. 

4.5       In making the recommendations staff have endeavoured to maintain consistency over the allocation recommendations according to the amounts applied for and the number of people estimated to be attending the events.

4.6       These grants are processed post event, on receipt of invoices for actual spending. It is possible that an event won't utilise the full grant therefore, there could be funding remaining after these events. The second part of the staff recommendation is to allow for this possibility and to enable utilisation of any unspent funds through the rest of the year for similar events.

4.7       Organisers of events that are scheduled to take place in a public place situated within an alcohol ban area, will be notified of the ban requirements.
