6.        Suburban Centres Biannual Report - to March 2017

Reference:

17/557667

1.   Purpose and Origin of Report

Purpose of Report

1.1       The purpose of this report is for the Innovation and Sustainable Development Committee to be updated on progress in implementing the nine suburban centre master plans.

Origin of Report

1.2       This report is staff generated in fulfilment of the Strategic Policy and Planning (Combined) Activity Management Plan, which requires biannual reporting on the Suburban Centres Master Plan programme.

2.   Significance

2.1       The decision in this report is 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 reflecting on the nature of this report as 'for information', albeit that there will be some interest from the community on overall progress towards master plan implementation and further work.

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

 

3.   Staff Recommendations

That the Innovation and Sustainable Development Committee:

1.         Receive the report.

 

 

4.   Key Points

4.1       Progress on implementing the master plans is reported via a biannual overview, with the details provided to the relevant community boards. The 'dashboard' of progress (Attachment A) has been circulated to Community Boards, with a request for any feedback. The feedback received, from the Banks Peninsula Community Board only, and the staff response is attached as Attachment B. In summary, the Board’s desire to implement small-scale amenity improvements on Norwich Quay will be considered via the master plan recalibration process (see 4.4 below); the Head to Head Walkway has been sign-posted through Lyttelton town centre on London St, as agreed by the Head to Head Walkway Working Party; a status update of various planning and capital projects in and around Lyttelton being prepared will aim to include discussion on any remaining opportunities to move heavy traffic off Norwich Quay and the Board’s desire for public access to the waterfront is likely to be achieved through the Te Ana marina development and Naval Point development plan. The ‘dashboard’ has been amended accordingly with respect to Action M2.

4.2       The section below identifies key progress over a twelve (as opposed to the usual six) month timeframe. Although the dashboard for April 2016 to the end of September 2016 was prepared, it was not presented to elected members due to the local body election in October 2016.

4.3       The Suburban Centres Programme received some publicity in late April/early May via a series of ‘Spotlight on Suburbs’ articles in The Press on all master plan areas except New Brighton, Ferry Road and Main Rd (although Woolston as a centre was covered).

4.4       At present, there is approximately $27 million funding allocated to master plan capital projects (including New Brighton). Before councillors decide the level of funding to allocate in the next LTP, and how it is to be distributed between the master plans, councillors have asked staff to obtain input from community boards on the prioritisation of the remaining master plan capital projects. Staff have embarked on a process to do this and will brief councillors of the outcome.

4.5       Separate reporting occurs for progress on community-led master planning exercises, such as in Little River and Diamond Harbour, as these occur outside of the completed suburban master plans programme being reported here.

 

 

5.   Context/Background

Overview

5.1       The initial biannual report (covering April 2015 to the end of September 2015) provided the background to establishment of the master plans programme.  The focus of this report is the twelve month timeframe April 2016 to March 2017; key progress in each master plan area during this time is noted below.  Master plan actions are achieved by various units of Council, by private owners and by business and community groups. This report has been prepared with input from staff from the Transport and other Council units.

Lyttelton

5.2       Key progress includes:

·   Norwich Quay amenity improvements: Construction of the new bus stop and bus shelter on Norwich Quay by the New Zealand Transport Authority (NZTA) has been completed, although the pedestrian crossing signals are not operational yet.

·   Head to Head Walkway: Has now been sign-posted through Lyttelton town centre.

·   Local landscape and heritage interpretation: The Council recently approved in principle the gifting of the former Lyttelton Service Centre site at 33-35 London St for the rebuilding of the Lyttelton Historical Museum, subject to community consultation. Submissions are being sought from 29 May - 19 June 2017.

·   Accommodating community and cultural activities: The retrofitted Council-owned building at 25 Canterbury Street opened in September 2016 as the Lyttelton Community Boardroom.

·   Lyttelton Library/Service Centre: The combined library/service centre reopened in March 2017.

·   Christchurch District Plan: Most of the replacement Christchurch District Plan (rCDP) chapters which achieve master plan actions to some extent (e.g. Chapters 7 Transport, 9 Natural and Cultural Heritage, 15 Commercial and 18 Open Space) were made operative on 22 February 2017.

·   Local input into design and appearance: Development proposals are currently being reviewed by the Lyttelton Design Review Panel, comprising both professional and community members, during an 18 month trial.

·   Heritage retention: The Council started restoration and lighting of the Upham Clock Tower.

Sydenham

5.3       Key progress includes:

·   Open Spaces: Funding for the Buchan Park remodel has been rephased in the draft Annual Plan, with decisions awaited in mid to late June. 441 Colombo Street continues to provide a popular public open space with temporary landscape treatment.

·   Gateway treatment: Gateway artwork was installed and continues to enhance the northern entrance to the Sydenham area.

·   Sydenham School site: A new resource consent application has been lodged for a revised scheme for 76 residential one and two bedroom units comprising ground floor retail along Colombo Street and residential above, with construction of the foundation proposed to start in August/September 2017.

·   Movement Actions: The corridor review has been completed. This will inform the movement actions in the Master Plan and future funding allocation.

·   Sydenham Church site: The clearing of building debris from the site has commenced.

Selwyn Street Shops

5.4       Key progress includes:

·    Street environment: Feedback was received on the concept for the street environment. Work is currently on hold subject to confirmation of project timing in the Annual Plan 2017 (with the rephasing of the budget in the draft Annual Plan, construction funding is now planned for FY20). A revised concept will be prepared for further consultation in 2018.

·    Development activity: The new Church Hall is under construction on the corner of Selwyn Street and Somerset Crescent.

Linwood Village

5.5       Key progress includes:

Sumner Village Centre

5.6       Key progress includes:

·    Marriner Street-west and Wakefield Ave streetscape enhancements: With the rephasing of the budget in the draft Annual Plan, construction is now expected in FY18 and FY19. The project has been through scheme design and consultation and is currently in detailed design. Tendering is expected in late 2017 with construction starting in Autumn 2018, reflecting the requests of local business owners not to carry out construction over the summer months.

·    Community Facilities ("Matuku Takotako"): Following a collaborative design process (2015), and a naming competition (May-June 2016), construction of a new community centre, library and museum commenced in July 2016. The rebuild project is now advanced and the new facility is due to open mid-year.

·    Nayland Street off-street parking facility: Following the Council's land purchase, the preparation of a layout design plan and engagement with affected neighbours, construction contracts were awarded and site clearance work recently commenced. The site will be complete and ready to operate by mid-year.

Edgeware Village

5.7       Key progress includes:

·    Street environment: The Papanui-Parallel major cycleway is nearing completion and includes the installation of new traffic signals at the intersection of Edgeware Road and Colombo Street. The completion of this work provides certainty for the planning and design of the wider street environment enhancement. With the rephasing of the budget in the draft Annual Plan, construction is now planned for FY20. The project is currently in scheme development, with consultation expected to take place in the first half of 2018.

·    Development activity: Resource consent has been approved for an expansion of the supermarket and construction is anticipated to commence this year.

Ferry Road

5.8       Key progress includes:

·     Woolston movement and streetscape improvements: With the rephasing of the budget in the draft Annual Plan, construction is now planned for FY19 and FY20. Consultation has been undertaken on the initial plan. The issues raised are being considered with a revised scheme which also takes into account the discovery of tram tracks in the carriageway. Consultation on the revised scheme is expected to take place late in 2017.

·     Heathcote Street and Oak Street movement and streetscape improvements: Initial scheme planning work has been completed. Consultation on a revised scheme is expected to take place late in 2017, in conjunction with consultation on the Woolston movement and streetscape improvements.

·     Community hub: Consultation has occurred and Community Board sign off has been given for a Community Hub and Volunteer Library replacement of the former Woolston library building. This project will now proceed to detailed design. A tender for a contractor to complete this work has been issued. A transitional project is currently located on this site, occupied by the Woolston Volunteer library.

·     Ferry Road Crossing Enhancements: Initial scheme design and planning is being completed.

·     Council Car Park Improvements: Detailed design is being completed for an improved layout and higher amenity for the car park on Council land behind Woolston’s community facilities.

·     Moorhouse Avenue to Aldwins Road four-laning: Initial scheme design is being completed.

·     New World Woolston: In September 2016, a newly constructed larger store was opened and the old store closed for demolition.

·     987, 1013 and 1105 Ferry Road, Ferrymead: Construction has been completed with respect to complexes containing a number of commercial service and hospitality units on these three sites.

Main Road

5.9       Key progress includes:

·     Redcliffs Volunteer Library: Opened on 2 December 2016. It has become a much used and loved part of the village.

·     Redcliffs School Decision: The Ministry of Education has decided to relocate the Redcliffs School to the Redcliffs Park site. The Council is proceeding with consultation about a land transfer with the Ministry of Education.

·     Rockfall Remediation: Remediation work has now been completed in the Moa Bone Cave Point and Peacocks Gallop rock fall risk areas.

·     Mt Pleasant Memorial Community Centre: Opened on 14 October 2016. The building and groups using the space are creating a buzz and vibrancy for the area.

·     Mt Pleasant Yacht Club facility: Nearing completion and expected to open soon.

·     Penfold’s Cob Cottage: An options report for the future of this building has been presented to the community board.

New Brighton Centre

5.10    Key progress includes:

·    Marine Parade and Brighton Mall street upgrade: With the rephasing of the budget in the draft Annual Plan, construction is now planned for FY19. Scheme development for Marine Parade, and the mall between Marine Parade and Oram Ave, is currently underway. Early engagement with a cross section of the community and Development Christchurch Limited is taking place to inform the scheme development. Full community consultation will follow completion of the scheme design. An interim option to improve the pedestrian connection between the new playground and the mall is being investigated, with the view to the interim improvements being in place when the playground opens.

·    Following a Council resolution in 2015, DCL continues to progress the implementation of the New Brighton Master Plan and investigations into a proposed hot pool development and coastal promenade. DCL is also progressing an upgrade to the New Brighton whale pool and playground.
