3.   Staff Recommendations 

That the Papanui-Innes Community Board:

4.   Key Points

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

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 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 allowing vehicles to enter driveways unobstructed so they do not need to turn slowly to go around a parked vehicle;

·     Reduces the risk of a crash by extending the taper area for cyclists and motor vehicles making the transition smoother.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Loss of two unrestricted parking spaces

 

 

5.   Context/Background

Information

5.1       There is an ongoing issue with vehicles parking within 1 metre of the driveways of 129 and 131 Marshland Road.  The distance between driveways in this area is 12 and 13 metres respectively.  This means that when two cars are parked between the driveways they often are within the one metre driveway set-back rule.  The issue is compounded by the fact that the driveways at these properties are narrow (2.5 metres wide).

5.2       Parking enforcement has been called about the encroachments but often drivers are only stopped for a short period of time.  Parking ticks were installed but have not deterred motorists at this location.

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

Option Description

6.1       Install ‘No Stopping’ restriction outside 129 and 131 Marshland Road 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.

6.3       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are consistent with this level.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.4       This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.

Community Views and Preferences

6.5       Residents at 129 and 131 Marshland Road are specifically affected by this option due to proposed parking removal from in front of their properties.  Their views and the views of the adjoining properties and shops across the road were sought.  A letter was mailed out on Thursday 26 January with residents asked to respond by Wednesday 15 February.

6.6       Two residents responded to the scheme.  Both were in support of the scheme with one resident requesting a small change.

6.7       The consultation plan showed one car park being retained outside 131 Marshland Road and marked with existing parking ticks.  The resident was concerned that the parking tick will not be adhered to and requested a short section of no stopping before the driveway.  This change does not fundamentally change the objective of the proposal and has therefore been incorporated into the final scheme.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.9       Cost of Implementation - $120

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

6.11    Funding source – Traffic Operations budget

Legal Implications

6.12    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.

6.13    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.

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

6.15    Marshland Road forms the boundary of the Innes and Burwood wards.  Properties on the western side of Marshland Road are within the Innes ward.  Where a road forms the boundary between wards the accepted practice is for the decision to lie with the Community Board representing the side of the road which the change is proposed, in this case being the Innes ward. 

Risks and Mitigations    

6.16    None identified.

Implementation

6.17    Implementation dependencies  - community board approval

6.18    Implementation timeframe – approximately four weeks once the area contractor receives the request.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.19    The advantages of this option include:

·   Reduces the risk of a crash by allowing vehicles to enter driveways unobstructed so they do not need to turn slowly to go around a parked vehicle;

·   Reduces the risk of a crash by extending the taper area for cyclists and motor vehicles making the transition smoother.

6.20    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Loss of two unrestricted car parking spaces.

7.   Option 2 – Do Nothing     

Option Description

7.1       Marshland Road outside numbers 129-131 will remain as is.

Significance

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 – Install two wide pedestrian refuge islands (preferred option)

·     Option 2 – Do Nothing

4.3       Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages (Preferred Option)

4.3.1   The advantages of this option include:

·     The two islands and associated changes in line marking create a narrowing of the existing lanes and horizontal deflections, creating a natural desire to drive slower.

·     The introduction of an edge line 3m from the centre line on the southbound carriageway will allow for an area for vehicles reversing out of the angled parking.

·     Improves safety for pedestrians crossing Grampian Street by providing a central refuge.

4.3.2   The disadvantages of this option include:

·     Loss of 14 on street parking spaces

Community Feedback

4.4       Community Engagement on the  Grampian Street Speed Management Measures was  undertaken from 19 January 2017 to 8 February 2017.

4.5       A total of 125 leaflets were hand delivered to Jocelyn Street and Grampian Street between Veitches Road and Claridges Road. The leaflet was also sent to 55 key stakeholders and 13 absentee owners.

4.6       During the course of engagement, Council received feedback from three organisations including New Zealand Automobile Association, Christchurch District Health Board and Christchurch Disability Group.  All three organisational responses were supportive. Five residents also supplied feedback of which one was a petition containing another seven signatories. All five resident responses were opposed to the proposal but acknowledged speeding vehicles was a problem.

4.7       All direct respondents have been communicated with by phone and/or email to discuss their individual project inquiries.

 

5.   Context/Background

Background

5.1      

·   Grampian Street is classified as a collector road and has one bus route which runs along the north end between Cavendish Road and Claridges Road. The kerb to kerb width is 12.5m with a single centre line.

·   Casebrook Intermediate School is located on Veitches Road near the intersection with Grampian Street, and a small shopping precinct is located on Grampian Street between Veitches Road and Jocelyn Street.

·   A survey was carried out in 2015 showing 2200vpd and an 85th percentile speed of 57.2km/h.

·   Residents have raised the issue of speeding vehicles on Grampian street.

·   Reported crashes on Grampian Street were retrieved from the Crash Analysis System (CAS) for the five year period from 2011 to 2015.  This showed a total of five crashes during this period. Two of those crashes caused minor injury, and the others were non-injury crashes.

·   During a pedestrian survey the majority of crossings of Grampian Street occurred between Veitches Road and just north of Jocelyn Street.

 

Proposal

5.2       It is proposed to construct two wide refuge islands with associated tapers and No Stopping restrictions to provide necessary sight lines, and to avoid people on bikes getting squeezed by drivers.

5.3       In addition an edge line will be marked 3m from the centre line on the southbound carriageway allowing an area for vehicles reversing out of the angled parking, and will create horizontal deflection for traffic moving along Grampian Street adding to the natural inclination to reduce speed.

5.4       The Islands will be planted up with low foliage, a change from the initial intention of placing trees in the Islands which was rejected due to the condition of the sewer which runs down the middle of Grampian Street, and the need for the asset to be protected.

5.5       A lighting upgrade will be carried out to meet current standards for pedestrian refuge islands.

 

6.   Option 1 - Install two wide refuge islands (preferred)

Option Description

6.1       Install two wide Islands which also act as a pedestrian refuge, Line marking that will alter carriageway alignment, and associated 'No Stopping' restrictions on Grampian Street. Please refer to Attachment A.

Significance

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

6.3       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are consistent with this level.

Impact on Mana Whenua

6.4       This option does not involve a significant decision in relation to ancestral land or a body of water or other elements of intrinsic value, therefore this decision does not specifically impact Ngāi Tahu, their culture and traditions.

Community Views and Preferences

6.5       Local residents are specifically affected by this option due to it addressing several nuisance factors that currently affect them.  The views of all three organisation respondents were generally supportive of the proposal as long as it complies with the construction standard guidelines, which it will.  The five resident responses were all opposed to the proposal and included the following comments:

·   That neither crossing would help me and my guide dog because I’m on the wrong side of Jocelyn Street. Tactile pavers are not safe for me I need pedestrian lights.

o Project team response - A signalised pedestrian crossing falls outside the scope of this project and would not be deemed suitable for this road environment.

·   That adding pedestrian islands to the road will make it more dangerous as cars speed along the street and around the Veitches Road corner onto Grampian Street.

o Project team response - Grampian Street is straight for approximately 450m and this long straight is the major factor in many drivers going too fast. By introducing horizontal deflection the road will no longer give the same impression and drivers will naturally slow down.

·   There are not enough pedestrians to warrant the crossings, install speed humps instead.

o Project team response - It is correct that the demand for pedestrian crossing is not high. The primary purpose of the islands is a speed control measure.  Raised platforms to reduce speeds are not used as a treatment for collector roads.

·   Object to loss of parking. One resident requested more yellow no stopping lines.

o Project team response - Guests visiting some properties may have an additional 40m to walk when parking on the property side of the street. However, it was noted that both property owners mentioning this had space for several cars to park off street. In response to the inquiry requesting more no stopping lines it is not considered prudent to remove any more parking than is absolutely necessary.  A request for a mobility park outside the doctor’s practice has been accommodated.

6.6       The proposed design for the pedestrian islands complies with the CSS (Construction Standard Specifications) guidelines. The primary purpose of the pedestrian islands proposed on Grampian Street is to reduce traffic speed, positioned so that they create a safer road environment. This is achieved by following an approach that can be termed ‘self-explaining roads’.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

Financial Implications

6.8       Cost of Implementation –  This project is being carried out under the Safety Improvements Program  with the total cost estimate for this project being $66,530

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

6.10    Funding source – 2017 CAPEX Safety Improvements Programme

Legal Implications

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

6.12    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 parking restrictions, traffic control devices, traffic islands and pedestrian crossings.

6.13    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   

6.14    Not Applicable

Implementation

6.15    Implementation dependencies  - Approval by Community Board

6.16    Implementation timeframe - Construction to be completed by the end of this financial year.

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

6.17    The advantages of this option include:

•       The two Islands and associated changes in line marking create a narrowing of the existing lanes and horizontal deflections, creating a natural desire to drive slower.

·     The introduction of an edge line 3m from the centre line on the southbound carriageway will allow for an area for vehicles reversing out of the angled parking.

·     Improves safety for pedestrians crossing Grampian Street by providing a central refuge.

6.18    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   Loss of 13  on street parking spaces

7.   Option 2 – Do Nothing

Option Description

7.1       Grampian Street stays as it is.

Significance

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

7.3       Engagement requirements for this level of significance are consistent with this level.

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       This option is the status quo and was not consulted on.  All resident feedback acknowledged that speeding vehicles were a problem that needed addressing.

Alignment with Council Plans and Policies

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

7.6.1   Inconsistency - This option does not address known safety issues.

Financial Implications

7.7       Cost of Implementation - None

Legal Implications

7.8       None

Risks and Mitigations   

7.9       This option will not address the safety issues and therefore the risk of a crash and the increase in severity of a crash remain.

Implementation

7.10    Implementation dependencies  - Not applicable

7.11    Implementation timeframe – Not applicable

Option Summary - Advantages and Disadvantages

7.12    The advantages of this option include:

·   No loss of parking

7.13    The disadvantages of this option include:

·   This option does not address known safety issues on Grampian Street.

7    Parks, Sports and Recreation Update (bi-monthly)

7.1  Local Parks Update

The parks are dry with little rainfall at this current time. Many of the lawns have little growth. Shrubs in some areas are under stress. The trial with a change in herbicide use from Glyphosate to using organic herbicides is resulting in many gardens containing large volumes of weeds detracting from a good standard of presentation. Further trials are underway monitoring activity of controlling weed growth. Additional plants and mulch applications are underway to reduce chemical application along with weed suppression.

The garden hedge programme will commence with pruning in April.

7.2  Contract key performance

Contract performance is being monitored throughout the year.

7.3  Mowing and spraying programme

The amenity turf is mowed once per month.

The sports field turf is mowed five times per month with additional mowing for cricket.

7.4  Field surface activities

Fields are currently being assessed for the autumn renovation requirements. This will include surface aeration, fertiliser application and topdressing where required.

Many fields have a hard surface due to the dry conditions. Irrigation application has been increased to soften the sports field surface to minimise potential player injury.

7.5  Garden and landscape plans

Dudley Creek Flood Remediation Work Package 1 relating to turf and hard landscape has been completed.

The upgrade of Elmwood car park is programmed to commence in March.

7.6       Major service requests

Nil.

7.7       Sports Parks Update

Pre-season training for the winter codes is underway with many clubs and consequently sports line marking, set out and maintenance is commencing this week.

7.8       Capital Works Projects

Tullet Park sports field is being remediated for the soccer season by laying a sand carpet field. Consequently the field will be out service for this season.

The installation of sports field irrigation in Papanui Park will be completed over the coming months.
