Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board to approve the installation of 'No Stopping' restrictions on Sylvan Street in accordance with Attachment A.

1.2       The site is located within the road network as shown on Attachment B.

Origin of Report

1.3       This report is staff generated in response to requests from the public.

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.

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Spreydon-Cashmere Community Board:

1.         Approve that the stopping of vehicles be prohibited at any time on the south west side of Sylvan Street, commencing at a point 198 metres north west of its intersection with Hillmorton Street and extending in a north westerly direction for 18 metres.

 

 

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 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:

·     Improved vehicle visibility at a high traffic generating access/egress.

·     Removes three kerbside car parking spaces.

 

5.   Context/Background

5.1       Hillmorton Hospital Service Manager has raised concerns regarding existing on street parking restricting vehicle visibility at the Sylvan St entrance/exit to Hillmorton Hospital.

5.2       Sylvan St is classified as a local road, the land on the eastern side of Sylvan St is residential and there is a mixture of, health, commercial and residential on the western side of Sylvan St.

5.3       The section of Sylvan St to the north of Hillmorton Rd is estimated to generate approximately 400-500 vehicles per day.

5.4       Hillmorton Hospital is estimated to generate more than 280 vehicle trips per day. This is considered high for an access/egress and warrants improved visibility similar to a local road / local road intersection.

5.5       Council Infrastructure Design Standards describe local roads with an expected traffic range of 250-2000 vehicles per day. The high generating hospital access warrants a higher level of available visibility, improving overall road safety.

5.6       Sylvan St from Hillmorton St to the hospital entrance has a high kerb side parking demand. The installation of no stopping restrictions will remove three kerbside parking spaces, pushing parking demand south east along Sylvan St. There is adequate parking supply within 400m of the hospital access way to accommodate offset kerbside parking.

2.3       Memos/Information reporting back on Community Board matters

2.3.1   Sediment in Waterways as a result of the Port Hills Fires

 

At its last meeting on 24 March 2017 the Board decided to request that staff urgently investigate and determine any immediate measures that can be taken to prevent sediment from the fire damaged Port Hills entering the Cashmere Valley and the Hoon Hay Valley Streams from imminent autumn and winter rain events. The Board considered that measures are necessary to prevent long term damage to the length of the Opāwaho Heathcote River and further requested that staff consult the Cashmere Stream Care Group on the installation of any permanent or temporary technical solutions.

Staff working on the Port Hills Recovery have responded with the attached memorandum advising the Board on the steps already taken and proposed and confirming that advice has been sought from representatives of relevant environmental groups. The memorandum has been previously circulated to members. Staff have undertaken to keep the Board updated on plans and measures to be implemented.

2.4.1   Community Board Plan 2017-19.

Development of Community Board plans will take place from April – June 2017.   A first workshop will be held with the Community Board on 5 May (tbc). 

 

2.5       Board area Consultations/Engagement

2.5.1   Intersection safety improvements

Like other local councils in New Zealand, Christchurch City Council receives information about its intersections from the NZ Transport Agency (NZTA).  This information is based on the results of a National Road Assessment Programme called KiwiRAP – a partnership between the NZ Automobile Association, NZTA, the Ministry of Transport, ACC and NZ Police.

The Government, through NZTA, supports a range of Council transport projects, including intersection upgrade work.  The Council applies to NZTA for a funding contribution towards the costs of transport network projects.  The contributions vary depending on how a project meets the overall road network objectives and the proposed features eligible for funding (landscaping at intersections is excluded, for example).

                                      Improvements to Christchurch's road network are ongoing and continuous.

Information provided by NZTA is combined with a number of other very important local considerations when prioritising work at intersections. These considerations include:

·           predicted traffic growth from development

·           current congestion

·           speed environment

·           minor unreported crash history

·           efficiency of traffic operations

·           pedestrian and cycling use

·           community input 

Intersection safety data changes over time due to the influence of specific events that occur at different intersections.  Intersection safety is also influenced by factors other than design and engineering, including driver behaviour (red light running, speeding and drink-driving, as examples).

No intersection in Christchurch has a disproportionately higher-than-average safety risk when compared to other intersections in New Zealand.

Consultation is currently underway on how the Council could improve intersection safety.

 

2.6       Submission Opportunities

2.6.1   Intersection safety improvements

Consultation opened on 20 March 2017 and closes on 28 April 2017.

 

2.7       Annual Plan and Long Term Plan matters

2.7.1   Spreydon-Cashmere Annual Plan Engagement and Consultation

Community engagement for the 2017/18 draft Annual Plan included a community workshop and drop-in session.  The Board hosted a public workshop on Tuesday 21 March at the Kereru Sports Club, 73 Domain Terrace, from 5.30pm- 7:30pm, and a public drop - in day on Tuesday 4 April at Beckenham Service Centre 9.00am – 4.00pm.

 

A Board workshop to consider the content of a Board submission was held on 12 April 2017.

As a result of discussion at the workshop it was agreed that the draft Board submission would be circulated to members for consideration at the Board meeting on 21 April 2017.

 

2.7.2   Long Term Plan (LTP) Development

Development of the 2018-2028 LTP has begun.  Community Board input is being sought throughout the process.  To this end a first Community Board LTP workshop will be scheduled in May 2017, and another in July 2017.  It is expected that Community Board plans will enable Boards to identify priorities for inclusion in the LTP.

3.   Key Local Projects (KLPs) and Strengthening Communities Funded Projects

3.1       Nothing to report.

4.   Significant Community Issues

Barrington Mall Entrance/Exit.

4.1       Status

There have been ongoing expressions of concern from community members, particularly the Spreydon Neighbourhood Network about the safety of the Barrington Street entrance/exit to Barrington Mall.  Currently both right and left turning vehicles can enter the Mall from Barrington Street and exit the mall onto Barrington Street.  There is also significant pedestrian traffic in the vicinity of the entrance.  In addition to reported collisions there have been reports a number of near misses related to vehicles turning right into or out of the mall.

Staff have been working with elected members, Spreydon Neighbourhood Network representatives and Mall management, looking at possible changes to the entry/exit to make it safer, and two workshops involving all parties were held last year.  In light of the discussions, a possible concept plan to re-configure the entrance has been prepared by staff.

The changes were identified by participants at the Board’s recent Draft Annual Plan 2017/18 workshop as something that required funding provision in the 2017/18 Annual Plan.

4.2       Action

4.2.1   Traffic staff are currently collecting data regarding pedestrian traffic and looking at the possibility of changes being funded out of current operational budgets. 

4.3       Timeframe

4.3.1   Staff advice on options for funding any proposed changes is to be provided to the Board by mid- April.

4.3.2   Submissions on the Draft Annual Plan 2017/18 are required to be lodged by 28 April 2017.

 

Farmers’ Market

4.4       Status

The Board has received deputations from two persons interested in setting up a local market in the vicinity of the South Library on Colombo Street. The Board has indicated initial support for such a proposal and sought staff advice on the potential availability of Council owned land.

4.5       Action

Advice on potential land availability is required before the proposals can be considered further.

4.6       Timeframe

A Board seminar with Property Staff has been scheduled for 16 May 2017.

 

Spreydon Cashmere Youth Board

4.7       Status  

The Spreydon -Cashmere Youth Board was set up in 2016 and continues to work to expand its representation of local youth.  The Youth Board has established a good working relationship with the Community Board and seeks to enhance this going forward.

4.8       Action

Staff continue to work with the Spreydon-Cashmere Youth Board around providing a representative voice for local youth and on developing a good working relationship with the Spreydon Cashmere Community Board. 

4.9    Timeframe

          Ongoing.

5.   Major Community and/or Infrastructure Projects

5.1       Community Facilities

5.1.1   Nothing to Report.

 

5.2       Partnerships with the community and organisations

5.2.1   Working with Residents Groups

In July 2015 the Spreydon/Heathcote Community Governance Team met with local residents groups to ascertain how council and the groups might better work together.  A number of Community Board members at the time attended also.  Community Governance staff have continued to work alongside these groups, and others, to build capacity and to assist with advice when requested.   After the Residents Group network was initiated in 2016, staff met with network leaders, and ascertained that capacity development across the network was potentially useful.  It was decided that a survey would be developed to gather a wider view of development needs.  This survey is under development. 

 

5.2.2   Age-Friendly Spreydon Cashmere

Staff have been working on the matter of a cohesive framework for older adults work in the Community Board area, in partnership with other agencies and community groups.  Advice towards progressing this project is attached in a memorandum to this report. 

 

5.2.3   Edible Garden Awards

 

Staff have progressed work further towards a Spreydon-Cashmere Edible Gardens Awards.  Consideration of the nature of the project was reported to the Spreydon/Heathcote Community Board and discussed in November 2015.  That discussion was in response to a Board resolution in July 2015 requesting a workshop with staff regarding initiating an annual sustainable/edible/rain garden award for the Spreydon Heathcote ward.  The investigation of a Spreydon-Cashmere Edible Gardens Awards scheme has been undertaken as part of the local Community Governance team work programme.

 

The Canterbury Horticulture Society has agreed in principle to partner with the Board and staff, subject to detailed budgeting and mutual agreement to a memorandum of understanding.  With this approach in mind, staff have informally consulted with a selection of key stakeholders active in local community projects involving the production of food.  Discussions with stakeholders have indicated support for the project which will be critical to successful promotion.  The project is now positioned to result in an awards event in April 2018, with promotion beginning as soon as agreement with the Canterbury Horticulture Society is formalised.   This project would require an estimated minimum $4,000 funding.

 

5.3       Infrastructure projects underway

5.3.1   Nothing to report

 

5.4       Events Report Back

6.4.1   Community Pride Garden Awards 2017

The Spreydon-Cashmere Community Pride Garden Awards ceremony for 2017 was held at the Cashmere Club on Wednesday 29 March, from 5.30pm -7.30pm.  The event celebrated the 27th year of Community Pride Garden Awards, a Council initiative which was started in 1991 and has continued as a joint venture between the Community Boards and the Christchurch Beautifying Association since 1997.  Awards acknowledge local residents who have contributed to Christchurch's garden city image by beautifying their streets and gardens.

 

This year the Board made 126 awards for outstanding gardens (judged by Christchurch Beautifying Association judges).  Seventy awards were presented at the ceremony.   In addition to a certificate each recipient was given flowers and a NZ Gardener magazine from the Board.  Local businesses generously donated over $550 worth of prizes, and 20 prize draws were held for those award recipients attending the ceremony.

 

Certificates were posted to the 56 recipients who were unable to attend the award ceremony.
